Debunking Big Lies About Stock Options
Powerful lobbies are trying to repeal stock option expensing. If you own almost any high-tech company, you'd better take five minutes to understand why--or you're likely to get fleeced.
Here are the three big lies upon which the opposition to stock options expensing is founded.
Big Lie Number One: There is no way to know the expense, if any, of stock option grants.
Big Lie Number Two: Stock options aren't an expense.
Big Lie Number Three: The cost of stock options is already reflected in diluted earnings per share.
