Hey Fools! My wife was told that she would receive 1000 shares from her company in stock options. How does this work? I assume this is a good thing!? This is very new to both of us as we have only been investing with DRIPS and index mutual funds. What do I need to know about the 1000 shares? What questions should I be asking.? I read a section on this site about stock options, but it didn't give me the information at"least I thought I was looking for!" What are some good sources for me to become a well informed Fool? Sorry for being so vague!
