Description:Ã‚Â Apple Inc. (AAPL), seeking to retain its management team in the wake of former Chief Executive Officer Steve JobsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 Ã¢â‚¬Å“Occupy Wall StreetÃ¢â‚¬Â protesters?
- How is it the same or different than what is beingÃ‚Â protested?
