Some important topics such as the choice between stock and options as compensation vehicles in the presence of bankruptcy risk, the NUA tax benefits in asset allocation in the retirement accounts, the heuristic approach of using ri/stdi to select securities in forming efficient portfolio, and the arbitrage opportunity in index options at the initial stage are also included in this volume.
