if the average life span of a corporate CEO is ~ 5 years then FOMO would incentivize them via stock options to get the share price as high as possible ASAP. Issue corporate debt to the pension funds take that cash do share buybacks goose the EPS and in turn the P/E and bobs your uncle. The guy behind me in the CEO chair can figure it out.... the BA dude pulled down 150M in stock options?
Hopefully he is still holding all of it in BA because they would be worth around 30M now.
