Refactored #046: “Take Stock of Your Options”

On this episode of Refactored…

  • Chris is the worst, man. Like, why the holdup bro? We want our dang episodes already. Geeze.
  • Frank once again launches into an entire tirade about how ALL DigitalOcean executives should be jailed.
  • The guys talk equity. LOTS of ground covered at fairly high level, including:
    • Stock / shares
    • Options contracts
    • Insider trading (spoiler: just don’t, or the SEC will do unsavory things to your legal and financial posterior)
    • Vesting schedules and cliffs
    • Dividends
    • Market cap
  • Investopedia is a great reference if you still have questions. That, and a PROPER FINANCIAL ADVISOR!
  • The pick of the week is Increment, a digital (and physical!) software engneering magazine from the folks at Stripe.
  • … and much more!
