    mean that the Company can't think of anything better to do with their money, and that may really be true in Apple's case. However, if you are a Company officer or Board member, you might appreciate some efforts to push up the value of your equity. It may be one reason why Warren Buffet opposes granting of stock options.

    •  Anne - Buffet opposes stock options? (0+ / 0-)

      What I have read many times is that Buffet was one of the strongest advocates for having options show up in GAAP P&Ls as a compensation expense charged against current earnings. If you have a link to something that states that he opposes the granting of stock options to employees I'd like to read it.
