Expose the corporate dirty laundry... - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

-- Anecdotes, Gripes & Humor
-- Antennas
-- CAE, CAD, & Software
-- Circuits & Components

There are lots of ways these days to dig up info on corporate bigwigs. Financial sites list the recent stock transactions, and FTC rules require other kinds of declarations, like where political donations are made.

This would be a good place to start a list both of the guys (and girls) in the boardroom as well as providing websites where info can be found.

They can run but they can't hide.

Here's one of the places to see what your boss's boss is making on stock trades from your company. Interesting. and even shocking.

Lockheed-Martin is the default I have for my case, but type in the stock symbol of yours.

Raytheon - US:RTN
Microsoft - MSFT
Agilent - US:ANEN
Intel - INTC
Anaren - US:ANEN
Qualcomm - US:QCOM

Add Yours Here...

Then check out some oil company execs and ask why you are paying $2.50 (or more) for a gallon of gas.

Exxon - US:XOM
Sunoco - US:XOM

It is interesting to see the stock transactions by the executives, but I would not try to read too much into it. I think for most companies you find top execs selling. That has more to do with current compensation methods. Most execs get most of their income from stock transactions, options and shares, rather than a paycheck. Typically they are given options a certain percentage below current market price that they can execute immediately. If they don't sell, it would be like not cashing a paycheck.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
