6 CEOs who won the options lottery
Here's the easy way to buy low and sell high. When the market tanked in early 2009, some CEOs got bonus options at bargain-basement prices. Now, they're sitting on piles of gains.

Wow, these CEO's work so hard for this money; market goes no where, they lose nothing; wait for a rebound and they make a killing, for doing what??? Then we the shareholders lose when the stock options dilute the shares. Our country has lost its values.
Noone hates people for making money. But when people are becoming homeless at record levels at the same time CEO's are making record pay, something is broken.
The USA will only survive if there is a healthy middle class. CEO to worker pay is so lopsided right now we are becoming a two class soceity. Kings and peasants. This will create the "class warfare" you people seem to fear so much.
Go back to when the USA was at it's peak. CEO to worker pay wasn't even in the same universe as the bloated descepancy of 2012.
You worship these people as "job creators", but where are the jobs??? How many jobs could a CEO create if he took a salary of 20 million a year instead of 40 million???
I am truly amazed how you people have been brainwashed by the GOP to believe greedy, slimy, black hearted CEO's are your friends and need protection. Yet teachers are the DEVIL. lol Your content giving oil companies BILLIONS of dollars of OUR money, yet single moms on welfare are killing the USA. lol
Unforntunately, that is the way it is in today's economy, CEO's and board members only care about their self's and what they can gain from the company, especially their payouts, known facts for sure. And keep outsourcing jobs that is also killing our economy, do not blame the unions, they are willing to sacrifice to keep those jobs, but salary people have no choice, hello and goodbye for them. And with so called educated, the decisions made today by these CEO's are unbelievable, especially the biggest monopoly in our economy, the oil companies and what they get away with, another fact for sure.
Funny. The left-leaning MSN reporter didn't mention the millions that the CEO's of Mae and Mac are receiving while still asking us for $10B more in bailout money.
Is it because those CEO's are long-time cronies with the DNC or just a coincidence?
Ed Moe - Why would the rich, or anybody else want to pay more in taxes?? The last time this country was in the black was during Andrew Jackson's Presidency (1829-1837). The government has proved for the last 175 years that they can't or won't be fiscally responsible. Why in the world would we give them MORE money?
If you had a teenager that went crazy with your Visa and maxed it out, would you hand them your Mastercard?
I do agree with you though - I am also FED UP
