As of Dec. 31, 2015, $GE said that there was $628MM of unrecognized compensation expense related to unvested options, which will be amortized over the remaining vesting period. Of that total, approx. $159MM, after tax, is expected to be recorded as compensation expense in 2016.
No better outlook on $MSFT. Even if the results beat a bit, the stock may move 4 to 6% higher, but won't go above $60.
