Among the 62 industrial companies in the S&P 500, there were some massive payouts for CEOs in 2002, including $81 million for the infamous Koz at Tyco. Honeywell and American Standard also paid out more than $50 million apiece in pay, bonuses and options to their chiefs. As the ROE chart shows, whether the three earned it is another question. When 2002 compensation figures weren't available, previous-year figures were used, indicated by (2001) in the compensation column.
