Disney CEO Bob Iger earns 1,000 times as much as a typical employee

If you’re Abigail Disney, the granddaughter of the Disney company’s co-founder Roy Disney, the tipping point is about $66 million — or what Disney CEO Bob Iger earned last year.

Disney CEO Bob Iger earns 1,000 times as much as a typical employee

Chief executives have long earned some of the largest paychecks in America, but at what point does their compensation defy reason? If you’re Abigail Disney, the granddaughter of the Disney company’s co-founder Roy Disney, the tipping point is about $66 million — or what Disney CEO Bob Iger earned last year.

In a series of tweets posted on April 21, Abigail Disney criticized the level of compensation Iger receives, stating that “by any objective measure a pay ratio over a thousand is insane.”

The $65.7 million Iger earned last year is indeed more than 1,000 times the median salary of all Disney employees, which is $46,127, according to a study from Equilar. Thanks to incentives associated with his contract extension, that imbalance amounted to a paycheck 1,424 times greater than his workers’ in 2018. (This year, his compensation is projected to be a more modest $35 million.)

And while the median income for chief executives was $189,600 in 2018, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Iger is not alone in receiving multi-million dollar packages for his efforts at the helm of a company. Median compensation for 132 chief executives of S&P 500 companies hit $12.4 million last year, according to the Wall Street Journal.

But Iger’s much higher pay doesn’t make him an outlier. In fact, Iger joins a fairly full club of CEOs who earn over a 1,000 times more than their typical employee does, according to a report complied earlier this month by MyLogIQ, an aggregator of public company information, which looked at 325 proxy statements filed by S&P 500 companies to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

On this form, companies must disclose the ratio of CEO compensation compared to the median compensation of its employees. It’s up to the organization to determine how they will calculate this median employee pay figure, meaning some ratios may be more reflective of the earnings of full-time staff, while others may factor in the wages of part-time and seasonal workers, arriving at lower overall median pay.

Below are the 12 other S&P 500 industry titans also earning an “insane” amount compared to their staff’s typical paychecks, if we go by Abigail Disney’s definition.

'I stash cash where my wife can't find it': America's juiciest money secrets, as told to CNBC

This answer — well, the general sentiment rather than the specifics — was more common than you’d think.

More typical, and less dramatic, phrasing ran along the lines of “I give more away than I make to help others” or “My problem is trying to help others and getting stuck.” On the other side of the equation, one survey participant reported that her sister “gave us $5,000 to help with the down payment on our house.”

The “airplane oxygen mask rule” applies down here on terra firma, too: You have to put your own mask on first before helping to put one on someone else. In other words, you can’t be of any long-term help to others unless your own finances are in order.

Apart from properly handling financial requests from loved ones, also keep an eye out for scam-happy strangers. Every year around this time, phone fraudsters posing as the IRS try to bilk taxpayers out of hard-earned cash.

Remember: The IRS will never phone or email you to ask for personal information such as Social Security numbers.

May the Chevy Volt RIP: Tesla helped kill it, but it taught GM a lot about electric cars

It was billed as the beginning of an automotive revolution, a vehicle that motorists could use for their typical daily commute without using a drop of fuel, but which would also avoid the severe range restrictions of a pure battery-electric vehicle, or BEV. The launch of the Chevrolet Volt “extended-range electric vehicle” in late 2010 generated plenty of headlines and an initial surge in sales.

The launch of the Chevrolet Volt “extended-range electric vehicle” in late 2010 generated plenty of headlines and an initial surge in sales. But, despite addressing some of the original car’s problems and extending its range by nearly 50 percent in 2015, sales tumbled by more than 25 percent over the past two years. And, last week, General Motors quietly pulled the plug on the Volt, ending its production run at one of the three North American assembly plants it plans to shutter this year.

“The vehicle died because it wasn’t selling well, obviously,” said George Peterson, the head of the consulting firm AutoPacific, Inc. “The number of people willing to spend extra money” for a vehicle like the Volt “just isn’t that huge anymore.”

Some taxpayers will still face a ‘marriage penalty’

The new tax law that took effect last year eliminated the so-called “marriage penalty” for many couples. For others, not so much. The term refers to paying more in taxes as a married couple than you would as two single filers. And depending on your income, the credits or deductions you use and where you live, you could still pay higher taxes by getting married. “It’s more typical for people to have a marriage bonus, but there are tax provisions that are not adjusted for marriage,” said Kyle Pome

With some ugly earnings reports rolling in, investors hope the bad news is 'priced in'

Stocks were lower Friday as the shutdown dragged on—here’s what five investing experts are watching next 1:58 PM ET Fri, 11 Jan 2019 | 03:40

After an uncommonly strong three-week rally, the stock market is up 10 percent from the harrowing 20-month low it reached in a nearly unprecedented December meltdown. But the S&P 500 index is still 11 percent below its September record high and down 6 percent from a year ago.

So what’s now priced into the market, as earnings reports start to pepper the tape? It’s a crucial question with a pretty wide range of answers.

(Futures pointed to a decline on Monday as earnings season kicks into full swing with Citigroup saying revenue missed expectations)

Starting from an undisputed point: Some degree of economic and profit-growth slowing has been factored into share prices at this point. The S&P 500’s multiple on the coming 12 months’ forecast earnings is now just above 15, down from above 18 a year ago — when the market was aggressively pricing in the 20-percent profit gains of 2018, much of it thanks to the corporate tax cut.

The market briefly flashed “cheap” near the December low at just under 14-times forward earnings, but quickly bounced from there to a more neutral valuation relative to its 10-year trend.

Source: FactSet

Here’s another look at the S&P 500 tracked against the earnings trend, showing that brief drop to what was arguably an overshoot below fundamental expectations:

Source: FactSet

Yet those earnings expectations are being cut at a fairly brisk clip. Estimates for the fourth quarter results about to be reported in coming weeks have come down by five percentage points in the past three months.

Deutsche Bank strategist Binky Chadha says this pattern should continue: “Historically, large cuts in a quarter have tended to be followed by further cuts in forward estimates;, they have typically taken time to play out. Earnings revisions are also tightly correlated to our US data surprise index which recently turned negative for the first time in two-and-a-half years and the typical pattern suggests more downside before a bottom, also suggesting earnings downgrades will continue.”

Yet he goes on to say that stocks can continue their recovery against this backdrop, citing other recent periods, in 2012 and 2016, when earnings expectations continued to slip while stocks edged higher following large declines.

Chadha argues that the market is already priced for a 10 percent slide in 2019 earnings, though that calculation relies on several assumptions about what a “fair” multiple is given current inflation, interest rate and cyclical factors.

RBC Capital Markets strategist Lori Calvasina says the drop in valuation in the past year almost perfectly matches the typical historical multiple compression seen during a Fed tightening cycle. So perhaps if the Federal Reserve is indeed done raising rates for the foreseeable future — as the bond market is now betting — then maybe the pain in P/Es has largely been felt.

Still, valuation models might say the market has factored in softer profitability, but the process of numbers being sliced company by company, analyst by analyst, can take its toll on the market all the same.

There may be more at stake than just trade concessions in the US-China tariff battle

Trade frictions between the world’s two largest economies go well beyond the parameters of imports and exports.

Washington has been attempting to negotiate with Beijing about issues like forced tech transfers and intellectual property theft, but there’s a growing sense among international analysts that talks may also be touching on other deep-rooted issues in their relationship, particularly on the national security and military front.

The ongoing spat is a reflection of great power rivalries, political scientist Joseph Nye wrote in a Project Syndicate editorial last month: “It is much more than a typical trade dispute like, say, America’s recent clash with Canada over access to that country’s dairy market.”

Many economists have pointed out that the current dispute is more of a tech war than a tariff war as U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration targets China’s technology sector practices. Beijing’s militarization of the South China Sea and the sovereignty of Taiwan could also be influencing negotiations.

Here’s the ‘dream salary’ Americans want—and how much they actually get paid

In an ideal world, Americans would like to earn well above $100,000 a year. Specifically, men say their “dream salary” is $445,000, while women wish they could earn a more modest, but still substantial, $279,000 per year. That’s according to a 2018 survey from MidAmerica Nazarene University (MNU) of 2,000 Americans.

In reality, even the typical American family earns only a fraction of that: The median household income in the U.S. is $61,372.

And even during their peak earning years, the typical American with a BA isn’t making six figures: Compensation research firm PayScale found that the median salary for a college educated woman tops out at about $61,000, and for a man at just under $95,000.

Here’s the full breakdown of how much full-time workers with a Bachelor’s degree earn at every age. PayScale surveyed 972,788 U.S. workers between July 2015 and July 2018.
