I had read a few weeks back that QCOM had a significant number of options and convertible securities outstanding, which if exercised in full, could cause some serious dilution. Can somebody post the exact numbers?Mycroft and I discussed this on the Ahlgren board a few weeks ago. Mycroft raised the issue of the dilution in this post:http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?id=1380065000251000&sort=postdateand I responded in this post:http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?id=1380065000251003Counting new shares from the secondary and the convertible shares is fairly clear cut. Counting options isn't. The number of options included in the fully diluted shares number is highly dependant on the stock price and the option strike price. In general, the higher the stock price goes, the greater the number of shares which will be included in fully diluted shares. The 10-q's and 10-k's filed by the company give a complete breakdown of outstanding options. This is a good site for looking up the filings, for those who are interested:http://www.freeedgar.com/
