From the New York Times:

Here are 100 of the highest-paid chief executives in American business. The list comes from the Equilar 100 C.E.O. Pay Study for 2013, which ranks the compensation of chief executives of the 100 largest publicly traded United States companies, based on revenue, that filed proxies by April 4.

    If I understand stock options correctly, issuing them at the generational bottom in 2009 would have been a HUGE wealth opportunity for upper management. Particularly for big banks on the ropes in those days.

      THe problem is in the resets.

      Options are issued, if the market goes up, they make money. If it goes doen, the options get reset at the lower price.

      It is riskless — not the same as putting capital to work

    Is there a mutual fund that invest in all the SP500 except those with 8 figure CEO compensation? There has to some way of refusing to participate in the control frauds without having to invest in individual stocks. Any “social awareness” type of funds that take CEO compensation into their criteria?

    Nice to see Eddie Lampert only made $4.3 million. He’s done such a good job for shareholders.
