Talk about big paydays. 

Compensation for CEOs at publicly traded companies remains a hot-button issue for shareholders and proxy advisory firms. Bloomberg recently reported that Apple Inc. (AAPL) - Get Report CEO Tim Cook actually took home about $145 million in total compensation last year, far more than his reported $8.75 million. While CEOs may come under fire for how much they make, it is not the CEO who decides the compensation package, it is the compensation committee on the board of directors. 

Apple is a holding in Jim Cramer's Action Alerts PLUS Charitable Trust Portfolio. Want to be alerted before Cramer buys or sells AAPL? Learn more now.
