  • The Highest Paid CEOs in America People Rich guy It's a big number: $4.7 billion. That's how much the 10 most well-compensated CEOs in America collectively took home in 2012. All made in excess of $100 million, but those at the very top slipped into 10-figure territory. That's right, we're talking about compensation of more than $1 billion a year. Is anyone really worth that kind of money?
  • Facebook's "Dead Last" Chart Reveals a Troubling Fact I've made no bones about my feelings for Facebook Inc (Nasdaq:FB)  - that it's overrated, a flash in the pan, and ultimately doomed.

  • Stock Market News Today: What Week 2 of a Government Shutdown Looks Like

    Stock market news today focuses on market reactions to the second week of the government shutdown, with markets down 80 points with just a couple hours of trading left in the day.

    Investors are increasingly concerned that the conflict will not be resolved soon and fear the political stalemate will extend to the debt ceiling issue.

    As a result, stocks are lower in trading today in all sectors. The S&P 500 is down about 0.4% at 1,683.00 points, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is down 0.6% at 14,989.80 points.
