Michael Eisner does not make $500 million a year.
To be sure, he exercised options worth $570 million
in the first quarter of fiscal 1998. That would be
around November of 1997, almost a year-and-a-half ago.
The options he exercised were granted years ago, and
based on the fact that he has increased the value of
the company 30-fold since his arrival.
that's a big payday, but he's not getting it every year.
has frustrated stockholers for some time. Why
can't he groom a possible replacement. Mikey seems to
be a little selfish. Is he worried he could be
dumped once a replacement is fully groomed? Or worse
yet, he finds out he has lost his job by reading it on
the cover of Variety!!!! ala Katzenburg style. What
comes around goes around.
I love DIS - it's the half a billion dollar
wonderboy that I'm dissapointed with. I truly believe that
he is FAT, DUMB & Very HAPPY. Remember Rocky III,
Wonderboy doesn't have the "EYE of the Tiger" anymore. And
I shall try to be kind - that it's time to get some
LEAN HUNGRY & MEAN talent at the Helm of this
I see DIS in a state if dissaray. He's blown the
Internet play cause he just doesn't understand it( Go.COM
is joke ). The Broadcast division is a looser. If we
can't get rid of the Half a Billion Dollar Wonderboy,
then we should sell some of the assets ( build a
Shrine to Mikey for fellow cheerleader worshippers ) and
get back to DIS's Core Competantcy.
laugh out loud...good point...only suckers are
selling...the news today wasnt bad....disney theme parks
continue to make record profits...the rest of the business
will fall in line by 2Q...people over react as
usual...and thes MM are nothing but thieves...they are trying
to get your shares cheap and sell them back to you
at 50...dont fall for this downgrade
business...thats exactly what it is a business to make MM more
hold your shares...disney is one of the finest
companies in the world....
Everybody sell all their shares of DIS and buy
that WLGS penny stock!! That'll give me a chance to
pick up some more Mickey at a steal (That's if I can
find my checkbook, it must be under one of these piles
of Mulan/Lion King/etc/etc crap that are all over my
Mikey got stock options which are perks which =
Salary + Options + Perks + Cars + all totalled $
the 2nd highest compensated executive
in business history. What did that buy you
This stock was the best use of my DIS sale. I'm
no genius but stumbling onto this stock and using
DIS sale money has made me one Very Fat Dumb & Happy
Kat from Dixie today. I think WLGS could be the
Qualcom of the future. However due your own DD first. See
WLGS website to see what a real 5 yr business plan
looks like. Did you hear that
