    Stock Options are not incentives

    T-bills like the Chinese and Quit your whining.
    The government doesn't need to get involved in the stock market or public companies problems.

    There is a piece of paper called a prospectus which you should have read, about risk.

    • What the shit are you talking about? I made quite a lot of money short selling this stock and am not whining. My point was that company boards should ammend the way options are awarded such that the transaction provides executives with the maximum incentive to ensure the long-term success of the company. Who said anything about the government? You don't get a prospectus for stocks and investing in BTH is about as risky as they come short of pink slips. Fuck off.

      • you interject abit about stock options "the maximum incentive to ensure the long-term success of the company."

        Gee, who's side are you on ?

        As when your shorting a stock your wanting to drive the price down for your selfish profit.

        What companies need to do is just stop offering stock options. That alone would take a whole lot of volitity out of the stocks.

        And if they do offer stock options, there should be a company rule where in which they must be vested in the person name for a sum period of time, just to prevent a insider from getting shares in the morning for pennies on the dollar and in the afternoon selling it for face value of the current stock price.
