From Tim Higgins' "Apple CEO Tim Cook Received Nearly $100 Million in Compensation in 2021" in Friday's Wall Street Journal:
Last year marked Mr. Cook’s 10th year as CEO since taking over from co-founder Steve Jobs shortly before his death. “It has been a remarkable decade for Apple, and in 2021 Mr. Cook was granted an equity award for the first time since he was promoted to the CEO role,” the company said in the filing. In that decade, Apple’s shares rose by more than 1,100%, about triple the increase of the S&P 500, according to the filing.
In addition to last year’s compensation plan, Mr. Cook saw the vesting of previously awarded stock valued at $754 million. In 2020, he had a total of $281.9 million in restricted stock that vested during the year.
Mr. Cook has said he plans to donate most of his wealth to philanthropic causes.
My take: This is what Scott Galloway would probably call a massive transfer of wealth.
*Includes reinvestment of all dividends into Apple stock according to the 2022 Proxy statement. (It's better designed than most. See charts below.)
