How do I exercise my call option? You can choose to exercise your call option if it is “in the money,” meaning the strike price is lower than the stock price. For example, if the strike price is $30 and the stock price is $20, exercising would not make you money because you can purchase the stock for $10 less than the strike price.
Can you exercise an option immediately? Companies usually won’t allow you to exercise your stock options right away. Instead, you may have to stay at the company for a certain amount of time (usually at least a year) and/or hit a milestone. The process of earning the right to exercise is called vesting. You can usually only exercise vested stock options.
