When Is the Best Time to Exercise Those Stock Options?


We hear about stock options all the time in the news. It seems like anytime a big company is involved in some sort of financial transaction the term “stock options” is thrown around at some point. First off, stock options are an option given to a person, usually an employee, to purchase stock in a company at a fixed or discounted rate.

So perhaps you have been given some stock options and now you’re starting to wonder when you should exercise those options. Before you choose to move forward there are several things to consider.

  • Your company’s plan
  • Your company’s growth
  • Your current financial needs
  • Keeping your portfolio balanced
  • Current market conditions
  • The tax implications

Each of these factors is important and you should weigh each of them when you are considering exercising your stock options. If you would like to learn more about each of these important factors in regards to stock options and when might be the best time for you to exercise them, then click here.
