    Default Tim Cook's $100 Million Payday


    Apple CEO Tim Cook is sitting pretty today as the chief executive of the world's most profitable company. And according to the latest stats served up by compensation tracking firm Equilar, Cook is on pace for a major payday in the coming weeks.

    With the first quarter being a very common period for new stock and options to be awarded, older equity grants become vested. As a result, no shortage of top company executives will soon be able to cash in what they have coming.

    But no one stands to gain more than Tim Cook, who has portions of two restricted-stock-unit grants vesting in the first quarter of 2012. The Wall Street Journal said Thursday that those vesting interests will be worth approximately $100 million.

    Of course, that's not all Cook has to look forward to. The cool $100 million is separate from the one million share units Cook received in late 2011 when he officially replaced Steve Jobs as CEO.

    All told, it won't be a bad first quarter for Tim Cook, especially when you compare his anticipated loot to the executive with the second largest vesting stock payday on the list: Google Inc. Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt. The study shows that his two equity awards in the first quarter are valued at just $16.4 million.

    Never get why these guys work more than like a year. He will never be able to spend all his cash and his shares will keep paying him more than most for the rest of his life.

    Go retire on some massive boat with a load of women. Sorted.

    No job is better than partying 24/7. I'd probably end up dead by like 30 if I had unlimited cash. Live fast, die young.

    Not sure where you get your information from but Apple isn't the 'worlds most profitable company'; in fact, I believe it is roughly sixth. I think you mean most 'valuable company'?

    Yeah they are actually ranked 20th according to the latest report. Nestlé is on top. Still 20th isn't something to dismiss.

    If he was working only because he likes his job, then he would do it for free. Millionaires work because they want more money. Enough is never enough when you are a millionaire. The same is true for most people, though. I can always buy nicer things as a get nicer raiser in my career. All of the sudden ten years pass and I am living much more lavishly than I was just a decade ago. Many "middle class" people could likely live a very modest life and retire at 40-50 if they wanted to. But more is always better.
