More on expensing options

TheStreet.com has a few interesting articles on the options expensing issue.   This one, by K.C. Swanson and Ronna Abramson highlights the negative implications for technology stocks if the FASB proposals for option expensing are adopted.   The article also has some estimates for future earnings dilution produced by Goldman which are similar to the work I did back in February.

This piece, by Troy Wolverton, handicaps the chances of Congress intervening to defeat option expensing like it did the last time FASB tried to close this particular accounting loophole back in the mid-1990s.   His bottom line?   This time, after Enron and Worldcom, no politician wants to touch accounting rules with a 10-foot pole.
