    Tim Cook vs Other CEO's

    I posted this somewhere else and thought more people would appreciate it in its own thread here:

    Here is an experiment. Pick who does not fit into this list. Then think about why. Compare personality, vision, charisma, respect, credibility, etc

    Marissa Mayer
    Steve Jobs
    Elon Musk
    Jeff Bezos
    Marc Benioff
    Tim Cook
    Larry Ellison
    Sergey Brin
    Warren Buffett
    Mark Zuckerburg

      Bezos clearly doesn't belong. He's invested BILLIONS in discounts, marketing and other gimmicks, and his company earns ... pennies. The guy is a bozo.

      • Yes but there is the exact reason why he does belong. He has earned nothing. Amazon founded over 15 years ago. Apple just made more than all 15 years combined of Amazon and Apple did it in ONE quarter. Now look at peoples belief in Bezos. He makes things happen. He invests in companies and technology. Think AWS or Zappos to name just two. Even with no money being made the company trades at a huge multiple for him.

        What do you think would happen to Amazon stock tomorrow and Apple if Bezos and Cook switched CEO roles with each other? I'll tell you. Apple to new highs. Amazon goes under 50/share.
