Apple CEO Tim Cook to take more than 40% pay cut Business

Pat Gelsinger of Intel is my favorite CEO statistic.

CEO of a company with 1/5 the revenue of Apple, and is in stunning decline, made 80% of Tim Cook's compensation in 2022. For a brief time I recall he made more than Satya Nadella and Tim Cook combined.

I assume there are many ways to split this and it changes all the time due to performance targets and stock price, but if I were an Intel shareholder I would be watching that dude very, very closely to say the least. Shareholders voted 2:1 to reject the pay package in rather uncommon rebuke, but guess what the vote is non-binding because America is about funneling money to the top 0.01% and anyone with a pension fund or a 401k can go fuck themselves.

Pat Gelsinger, and INTC as a whole, is fucking shit. Has been a turn-around story for the last 5 CEOs, it is garbage. I remember when going fabless became the rage and this fucking imbecile decided to double down on in-house foundries, a massively capex intensive segment that is winner-takes-all, and such winner being TSMC for now. It also takes decades to build and have a foundry operational. All this while INTC struggles to even fulfill ETAs on products because of in-house production issues

EDIT: INTC not INTL is the ticker, I messed up

INTC, get ya symbols right when turfing son.

Why not just add one letter to spell the whole word Intel? We aren't on WSB

INTC is the ticker symbol. INTL was the one they thought was the ticker symbol. Though yeah, could just write it out but if you are talking about stocks makes sense. Intel also can get confused with intel (data).

damn you right, been long since I covered INTC, I keep fucking switching INTC with INTL in my mind.

Still, doesn’t alter the point being made. INTC fucking sucks ass. The undisputed leader in market share of CPUs and they squandered it to AMD.

I was like "did Intel make a secondary stock and do a GOOG/GOOGL" but nope. Getting the INTL ticker symbol evokes "International". There is something under "INTL", it is BATS, whatever the eff that sketchy sounding fund is "Main International ETF". Just started in December... 🤔

They look legit, have other ETFs (INTL started Jan. 1st of 2022, seeks to outperform MSCI World ex. US Index). Ain’t part of the big boys though (iShares/BlackRock, Vanguard, Charles Schwab, State Street, etc.)

I guess as good as a company named generically "Main International ETF" can be. Either real, a fees scam, a mafia washing front or an intel front. So about a 25% legit chance of being legit, not bad for finance. Solid ticker symbol though for sure, memorable.
