Fact of the Day

The CEO-to-average-worker pay ratio of the 250 largest companies in the Standard & Poor's 500 index ranges from 1,795 to 1 (J.C. Penney's Ron Johnson) to 173 to 1 (Agilent Technologies' William Sullivan).

Do those figures reflect the two CEOs' relative value to their companies? Agilent shares have risen 49% over the last year, while J.C. Penney's have fallen 73%.
