I told you that you were making a big mistake selling COH, super high quality and going bottom fishing with those troubled biotech company's. I hope you are not getting burned too bad. I see your ELN is down 38% in afterhours and your BIIB is down 9%. You deserve some of this with your own stupidity. I did not sell any of my COH and COH is the only stock I own. I am very happy I stuck with COH.
- I see why you have gone mad.
Most, if not all CEO salaries are decided upon by a compensation committee...and if that committee decided I was worth $86 Million, I don't think I'd turn it down either. That being said, however, Lew is WAY overpaid for what he's contributing. Let's look at Revenues, Net Income, and CEO Salary of several other companies and compare them to Lew's
DELL - Revenues:49 Billion
Net Income: 3 Billion
CEO Salary: 38 Million
GE - Revenues: 158 Billion
Net Income: 17 Billion
CEO Salary: 12 Million
ExxonMobile - Revenues: 298 Billion
Net Income: 25 Billion
CEO Salary: 25 Million
Coach - Revenues: 1.5 Billion
Net Income: 325 Million (0.32 Billion)
CEO Salary: 86 Million
C'mon now....this company makes HANDBAGS...not exactly the things that keep this country and the world moving....Overpaid? For what he contributes to society and his shareholders...YES
Based on the number of shares of COH, his salary, alone, took enough money from the shareholders that reduced the Net income by $0.22/share....based on a P/E of 30....he just reduced the shareholders stock by $6.78/shares.
Yeah, that's just about what I expected from a mentally challenged person such as yourself.
" . . or that you are not no Albert Eienstien."
Let me guess, you've lived a very difficult life of poverty somewhere in the Appalachian Mts and quit school in the 3rd grade after failing English. You married your cousin and have no friends to speak of from the outside world. Your favorite movie is Deliverance because it brings back memories of the "good ol days" when you used to chide the few tourists that passed your way.
BTW, it's Albert Einstein and I'm very glad my wife isn't a centerfold of Penthouse magazine.
Got to get ready for church. You're probably not familiar with that term. It's a place where Christians go to worship. You ought to try it some time if they have churches where you live.
No need to respond with any more of your useless drivel. I've got you on Ignore. Good luck to you and I hope you find your way back.
You are a loser my friend. When is the last time you seen civiliation way up there in those mountains. COH is a winner you lost soul. No way it will drop the way you predict. Has your wife ever told you that you are not exactly the sharpest tool in the shed, or that you are not no Albert Eienstien. Oh well, I bet your wife is not exactly the centerfold of penthouse magazine so don't feel so bad.
It was the MAY $22.50 options that I used to base my $22.45 target price.
I won't embarass myself by stating how much I lost when the tech bubble burst during 2000 - 2001. But, I'm not going to let that happen again. Rather sit on the sidelines for awhile and let the market settle out. If I miss a few bucks in the process, so be it.
Good luck to both you guys,
