Apple Inc. Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs, who received $1 in salary last year, may have made a potential profit of $13.7 million by exercising options to buy shares.
He bought 120,000 shares for about $5.75 a piece this week, selling them somewhere in between Apple's trading range this week of between $127 and $113, according to a regulatory. Cupertino-based Apple gave Jobs the options under a 1997 plan for directors, according to an April filing.
The executive became ineligible for further directors' grants after taking the CEO job in 1997, reclaiming leadership of the company he founded after computer sales slowed. Jobs helped revive its fortunes with the best-selling iPod music player and new versions of its Macintosh computers.
Not bad for a guy stuck in a job that " doesn't pay well " honey.
