Re: Stock Options as Compensation - 2 or 8 house?
It's confusing because I'm not buying stocks as an investment, rather they're given to me as part of my compensation.
Salary, bonus & stocks are the 3 main parts of a compensation package in the tech industry (maybe other industries, too, but I wouldn't know). You negotiate the amounts of all 3 when you're hired. It's all part of your pay...
Buying stock as an investment, or choosing a mutual fund comprised of stocks for your IRA, etc. definitely is 8House
