Google CEO Receives Stock Grant Worth $199M

Whoa, as part of a promotion to CEO you get a $199 million stock grant? I think we are all in the wrong business.

Google Chief Executive Sundar Pichai received restricted stock worth about $199 million, according to a regulatory filing by Google parent company Alphabet Inc. Pichai, who took over in August, received a grant for 273,328 Class C Google stock units on Feb. 3. The valuation is based on the stock's closing price on that date.
