I was surmising with a fellow owner about the impact of Google on demand for Ferraris locally. The numbers I've seen from last January indicate that Google has created at least 1000 paper Millionaires, and I think at $355 a share, that's probably a conservative number (see math below). And they're pretty much all living in the Bay Area. I think that in the coming year we'll start seeing more former and current Google employees on the board, and hopefully more Ferraris! They're all welcome, of course! Just for kicks, here's the math: To make $1,000,000, you'd need to be able to have, say, $1,700,000 worth in exercised options. Assume the strike price of these options is $50, you'd need about 5600 exercisable shares to make $1,000,000 at today's price. That corresponds with a 10,000 option, 2003 pre-IPO grant at $50/share. My guess is there are 750 people at Google who have at least 20,000 share grants at $15 or less, making them worth, conservatively, $6,800,000 pre-tax. There are probably 100 or so who have crossed into the $25,000,000+ range. Wow! Dot-com is back, baby!
