Trends In Stock Options, Restricted Stock, and RSUs for Company Boards

the site has just released new trends in terms of equity compensation for Boards. 
Even if that largely concerns Corporate Boards of directors of largest companies, the study gathers three recent surveys that include details on stock compensation for directors, coming from top companies in matters of Executive compensation: Towers Watson, Mercer, and Frederic W. Cook & Co.
As usual, trends for the largest companies pave the way for the future of others.
Main trends are:
  • Most of the companies grant only restricted stock (or deferred shares) to directors.
  • The number of companies using stock options has declined, to become now very a small minority, and most of the time alongside restricted stock.
  • Full-value stock awards (restricted stock and RSUs) are the “most prevalent” form of a stock grant (using a fixed-dollar value for each grant size)
