would be bad just before repricing...even though google "never talks about its stock" but for some reason
bashed it to a merril lynch investor conference just before repricing the options,,then after repricing they came out and told everyone how rosy things were:
Given that options are supposed to be a long-term compensation incentive, and given that Googlers have perks most workers can only dream of (starting with a robustly healthy and profitable employer), shareholders might have hoped that the company would at least wait a few years before transferring so much shareholder wealth directly to its employees.
Of course, one mitigating factor here is that those shareholders include Larry and Sergey. So they're taking the hit as well.
AP, SJ Merc: A day before stocks bottomed in March, Google let almost 16,000 of its workers exchange their stock options. It turned out to be the deal of a lifetime.
The average exercise price for the options held by non-executives was around $521 a share at that time. But Google's shares were trading closer to $308 each, making the options all but worthless. So, Google repriced the options to where its stock closed on March 6.
Then something surprising happened. Like the broader market, Google's shares began to soar. Now, the stock is around $590, and each option has a profit of roughly $280. That amounts to a potential windfall for employees at the Internet search company of more than $2 billion.

2008, flash crash, greenspan, and tighten interest to the moon Bernanke taught me how idiots and crooks run the country and the financial world.
how it wrecked my retirement or life or health.....way to bail out the jerks that caused the mess in the first place and let them party their #$%$ off. no one bails out my losing trades or loans me 1 pct billions.
I could have made a fortune on that. Make sure to raise the interest rates!!!!! You know what is going to happen when you start doing that? a bigger collapse than last time.
