here is a direct and quick "to the point request" that you can ask Fred about next time you e-mail him.... and everyone should be able to see the value of.....

Apple should release a statement in an SEC filing when ever a series of grants of ESO's to employees of any kind adds up to more than 1 million possible shares combined, and this statement of grants should be released within a week that these grants are made, the statement should including total outstanding ESOs to date, and an average of the strike prices similar to what they do now but they only do it once a year.....

here is another one....

When ever the stock price drops below the strike price of 80% of the ESO's outstanding, the company should buy back enough stock to cover 50% of the number of outstanding ESOs..

that would benefit shareholders, because it removes dilution, and it sets a price where the company would guarantee to make money, if those ESO's ever get excercised.... which is the point....

this generates real money in the bank for the company (buying stock low, and selling it back higher (at the exercise price))....

right now the stock is below 100% of the ESO's outstanding (except for any they just granted) which could be as high as 10% of the entire company just this month.... last year it was 6%, the year before 10%
