If you give them options at $5, it's easy to pump up the stock to that level and more. There are enough suckers to buy the line "great things will happenen here...!!". And I have seen many a mgmt. team cash in, leaving those suckers high and dry.
Ok, ok, "you must be pulling my feet!"....what the heck is going on up there?...i may be "idiotic" and "stupid" and a "moron"....but hey, I know that if I am long UP IS GOOD! Do you HONESTLY care WHY,or HOW a $1 stock goes to $5....good bye, I can't handle this high level intellectual discussion...good luck
