The pay package of Disney (DIS) CEO Robert Iger climbed 20% to $40.2M in 2012, including a basic salary of $2.5M, $9.5M in stock awards and a cash-and-stock bonus of about $24.3M. Over 90% of Iger's compensation was based on the company's earnings and share-price performance. Since he became CEO in 2005, Disney's stock has more than doubled, including rising by a third last year.

    I think Igers compensation is way out of line. Number 1 how mulch is given to the government in taxes. The pay is a bet on stock performance. I have owned the stock since 1977, and never have I been offered an opportunity to bet on the stock like Iger. Will he give back that money in a few years if his longer term policies really did not work out. Such CEO compensation has discouraged ownership of stock generally. Iger like Eisner benefit from a low stock price. It takes an idiot to know that Snow White and all Disney's gems would not grow. Mel Richards

    Why nobody followed Melcat? Too personal, or others have self interest? Melcat
