Tim Cook collects $89.2 million in vested Apple stock

Tim Cook had a better Thursday than you did last week.

That’s because the Apple Inc. chief executive on Thursday was awarded 560,000 vested Apple shares worth $89.2 million at the time, half of them for meeting company performance goals, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing Monday.

Cook received 280,000 time-based restricted stock units and another 280,000 performance-based RSUs, in accordance with an incentive plan approved by Apple’s board in 2013. To meet his performance goal, shareholders’ return on Apple stock had to outperform two-thirds of S&P 500 companies over the past three years, which it did, handily.
