* Note: The CEO Performance Index rank is used to adjust for differentials in opportunities from company to company to better measure the CEO in these circumstances. CEOs were ranked on five measures (for financial firms--growth in book value per share, earnings per share, equity market capitalization, and return on common equity plus the level of ending return on common equity) to nine measures (for nonfinancial firms--adding growth in cash flow per share, net margin, and revenues per share plus the ending level of net margin). The financial firms were placed in final rank based on the first five measures against the nonfinancial firms. The nonfinancial firms then competed for the interval spaces between the financial companies using all nine measures.
