Description:Â Apple Inc. (AAPL), seeking to retain its management team in the wake of former Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobsâ€™s death last month, gave $60 million restricted-stock grants to most of its senior vice presidents.
Questions for discussion:
- Do you believe this is a wise financial planning decision at Apple?
- How do you think it will be received by other employees at the firm and by the stockholders?
- Do you believe this is the sort of activity being protested by the â€œOccupy Wall Streetâ€ protesters?
- How is it the same or different than what is being presented by protesters?
