    Justify Executive Stock Options ?

    In most cases options are given at current price at issue and are good for a 10 year period. Will BBT not have any gain in the share price for the next 10 years? I think the majority of companies will have some kind of increase in a full 10 years period regardless. However, the options given were given for past performance is my understanding.

  • Is there anyone out there that can explain what could possibly justify the millions of stock options given to Kelly King and the executives of BBT? If I read the proxy correctly Kelly King was given millions of stock options for the following results. BB&T missed the last four quarters of earnings estimates according to Yahoo. Yes, that is correct BBT missed every quarter's earnings estimates in 2015. The per share stock price was $38.89 on December 31,2014 and ended at $37.81 on December 31,2015. I just don't understand how anyone could believe that this type of management deserves big rewards.
