never exercise options and keep the stock.

More than never if 70% of your assets are in the company stock!....a recipe for disaster.

no one should have more than 20% of their net worth in a company stock. Diversify.

WCOM, ENRON, and dozens of others should send warning bells. no company is immune. Don't bet your retirement on one company....some nut could blow up the HQ building and take the company down the tubes in 30 seconds...... or another insider ENRON fiasto or WCOM fiasco.

Diversify.

Now!
