Less than two weeks into the new year, many CEOs have already earned more than the average worker takes home annually. Apple
boss Tim Cook is one such example and he has just taken home his largest ever bonus. In fiscal year 2018, Apple's market value temporarily surpassed $1 trillion
while it posted record levels of revenue and profit. That has resulted in a bumper $12 million bonus for Cook, on top of his $3 million salary and shares worth $121 million.
According to Bloomberg
, his bonus was linked to revenue and operating income targets, both of which increased 16 percent from a year earlier. Previously, Cook's biggest bonus payout came in 2017 when he took home 9.3 million.
