Why are my stock options classified as ‘Alternatives’ ?

Personal Capital includes vested stock options in the Net Worth calculations and classifies them as the underlying stock class. However, stock options are the right to own equity and not equity until they have been exercised. This is why Personal Capital is classifying these as Alternatives. Once the options are exercised, the allocation information will change to the appropriate equity class.
