If you earn a stock option at $7M... that stock is valued at $0. You usually do not lose money on an option. You can only gain money on it. If your stock is below strike price... if this were a stock, you'd lose money every time the stock price dropped. In an option, you don't lose anything even if you send the stock to the cellar. Hence, when executives get huge payouts for big success but are capped in how much they lose if they business tanks... what would you do? Of course you're going to to gamble. Go big or go home.
Well no sense in arguing how its valued, its not a matter of your opinion its a simple fact. You either get it or you dont and you chose to not....Rail on my friend, you are a dedicated soldier Ill give you that.
