The article examines the salary increase amongst chief financial officers (CFOs). Particular attention is given to how public companies want their CFOs and other top executives to get most of their compensation through stock options and other stock-related pay that appreciates over time and through incentives. The negative aspects of this practice are also analyzed, such as the risk involved if the stock goes down. Included is information on the options valuation method of the company Pearl Meyer.
