Jamie Dimon, Brian Moynihan ? Nope.
MarketWatch's David Weidner looked at the last four quarters of big U.S. bank results and ranked the companies by price to earnings, return on equity, price to book and the CEO’s compensation (using their 2012 packages) as a percentage of net income. He gave the pay-to-profit category double the weight.
He also gave extra weight to the three-year stock price (through Nov. 12) performance. The data came from Capital IQ and the company profiles on WSJ.com. Scoring was simple: If you ranked high, you got five points. Last, one. For the weighted categories he doubled the points.
Here's what he found:
John Stumpf, Wells Fargo - ROE 5, Price /Book - 5, P/E 2, Pay/Net 10, Stock - 10 = 32
Jamie Dimon, JPMorgan Chase - ROE 3, Price /Book - 3, P/E 3, Pay/Net 8, Stock - 8 = 25
Lloyd Blankfein, Goldman Sachs - ROE 4, Price /Book - 4, P/E 1, Pay/Net 6, Stock - 2 = 17
Brian Moynihan, Bank of America - ROE 1, Price /Book - 1, P/E 5, Pay/Net 4, Stock - 6 = 17
James Gorman, Morgan Stanley - ROE 2, Price /Book - 2, P/E 4, Pay/Net 2, Stock - 4 = 14
