They're her shares, she can do what she likes. Yahoo have to except that when they give board members such huge stock options.

If i owned Yahoo shares i'd be dumping them as well.

However they may be her shares to do with as she pleases but if you really believe the company is going places (which the ceo should) why sell them they'll be worth x% more i a few weeks/months/years. Its not like she needs the money.

Technically they're not, and she can't. Options are quite different to actual shares, and there are different rules that apply to them.

For anyone that doesn't see the problem with this, two words: Insider Dealing.

People with stock options have to be careful when they sell shares, if she sells her shares, people might be think that she knows something about the company's future that they don't. Which could in turn cause others to loss confidence and damage the value of the company (and it's happened many times before).

For legal reasons I should point out that I am not accusing anyone of doing anything.

None of the execs that came from Sun Microsystems impressed me except for Eric Schmidt, who had the good sense to leave long long ago. Bartz did nothing useful at Sun. Apparently she's now doing the same at Yahoo.
