Apple CEO Tim Cook sells 30,000 Apple shares for $3.6 million

“Apple CEO Tim Cook sold 30,000 shares of Apple stock this week, valued at $3.6 million based on the company’s stock price of $120 at the time of the transactions, according to a U.S. Securities and Exchanges Commission disclosure,” Joe Rossignol reports for MacRumors. “The shares were sold as scheduled pursuant to Cook’s predetermined trading plan.”

Rossignol reports, “Cook retains 1,009,809 company shares worth over $121 million based on Apple’s current stock price following the sale.”

“Upon reaching his fifth anniversary as Apple CEO last year, Cook cashed in nearly $137 million in previously-awarded stock bonuses tied to both his tenure and Apple’s performance under his leadership,” Rossignol reports. “Accordingly, after bonuses, Cook actually earned roughly $145 million last year, his biggest payout yet.”

MacDailyNews Take: Cook’s was a typical scheduled sale, presumably for tax purposes; or maybe he’s buying himself a Bugatti.

      Samsung Clearly Has Big Problems, and That’s Great News for Apple and Alphabet
      Apple and Alphabet could cash in.

      …Since its popular Galaxy Note 7 devices, as well as a few other personal electronic products manufactured by the South Korean company, started literally going up in flames, the situation has only worsened.

      Now prosecutors have even called for the arrest of Lee Jae-yong, Samsung vice chairman and likely successor to oversee the $175 billion company. The charges against Lee stem not from the explosive capabilities of Samsung’s products but from allegations that he has engaged in bribery and embezzlement in a scandal that involves South Korean President Park Geun-hye. . . .

      The company’s device solutions business, which manufactures memory and LCD products, is facing increasing pressure from competitors such as Micron Technology, Toshiba, and Western Digital’s SanDisk.

      Samsung Security Cameras Hacked Again
      White-hat hackers found a loophole that allowed for remote command execution.

      …The vulnerability, according to Exploiteers, lies with Samsung’s iWatch webcam monitoring service. The iWatch server’s lax security allowed the group to install their scripts, including user-defined file names, in order to take over the cameras by gaining access to their administration panels.

      Exploiteers notes in its blog post, the group joined other white-hat hackers in exploiting a similar exploit at last year’s Defcon 22 security conference. It allowed for remote command execution and the ability to arbitrarily change the camera’s administrator password….

      Darn, darn and darn!
      Samsung living up to their reputation yet again again again. 📉💸👎
