There is nothing non-factual about what I said. If a stock drops below a strike price, the option is valued at $0 and you lose no money. If it's stock, you lose money every time the stock price drops. The difference in downside risk is tremendously different.

As for vesting... many CEOs can exercise their stock options after 1-3 years. That's not a lot of time and it creates enormous incentive to inflate earnings today then cash out.
