Hi all,

With all the recent buzz around whether or not business should expense stocks, I still find myself wondering what the big deal is.

Yes, I know that most companies use the intrinsic value method of accounting for options which basically lets them put nothing there. But they also disclose how their net income and EPS would look if they expensed using the fair value method. So it seems to me like the info that everyone wants is already in the financial statements of the company.

What am I missing here?
