      Is There A Fair Way To Pay CEOs?

      When CEO paychecks are determined by performance, it sounds like a fair method of compensation. That way, head honchos at major companies aren’t raking in millions unless they’re doing a good job … right?

      While this model sounds great in theory, the New York Times reports that it doesn’t always work in practice. The popularization of performance-based pay has done nothing to prevent companies from dishing out increasingly staggering paydays to their executives.

      Target CEO Ouster Shows New Board Focus on Cyber Attacks

      Chief executive officers beware: Data breaches can now cost you your job.

      Yesterday Target Corp. (TGT)’s board ousted CEO Gregg Steinhafel in the wake of a hacker attack that compromised the personal data of millions of shoppers during the holiday season.

      Groupon, Down 40% In 2014, Finally Does Something For Shareholders

      This Is The Wild Coca-Cola Executive Compensation Plan That Warren Buffett Is Having Killed

      This week we learned that if Warren Buffett has a problem with you, he prefers to handle it privately over a steak dinner in Omaha.

      Because publicly, it seemed that Buffett wasn't going to do anything about the Coca-Cola executive compensation plan that, according to some detractors, might dilute shareholders up to 16.6% and hand execs up to $24 billion worth of stock at today's share price.
