After much anticipation and speculation, the number everyone on Wall Street has been waiting to hear was finally released late Friday: the bonus haul for the Street's top rainmaker, Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein.
What did he get? More than 58,000 shares in company stock to be cashed in over the next five years. At today's closing price of $154.16 those shares are worth more than $9 million.
Blankfein didn't get a cash bonus.
The bonus, though large by Main Street standards, doesn't come anywhere close to Blankfein's legendary haul for 2007. For his efforts, he was paid $26.8 million in cash and $41.1 million in stock and options.
So, was Barack Obama's message about outrageous bonuses heard? Did Wall Street learn?
