Does this make any sense? I'll try an example.

Yes, I think I understand. Anyway, even though I believe in the long-term prospects of the company, I decided I couldn't stomach that much of my portfolio (even if it wasn't my original money) in one stock for that long just to avoid the ISO income tax, so I sold half of it and will just hang onto the rest.

Thanks much for the info!
