I recently was given a small amount of RSO (restricted stock option) which I was told I can "do nothing with" until one year passes. I get to use a third of it after 1 year; the next third after 2 years; the final third after 3 years. So I figured I would just sit on my butt until at least a year passes. BUT THEN someone in my office said, "you can do mark-to-market of course!" as if I would be making money NOW. I have no idea what he is talking about and cannot admit my ignorance. Help!
