CALIFORNIA: Hewlett-Packard Chief Executive Meg Whitman gave up her symbolic $1 salary and now draws an annual base salary of $1.5 million, reflecting the 93 percent rise in the company's stock so far this year.Whitman, HP's third CEO in four years, is steering the Silicon Valley giant through a years-long restructuring since inheriting in 2011 a company shaken by board changes, executive departures and fluctuating strategic decisions.Investors have since credited her for bringing much-needed stability to HP, which she is trying to turn around through layoffs, cost cutting and expansion into fast-growing markets such as enterprise computing.The new salary, effective November 1, “brings Ms. Whitman's salary to a competitive level among the salaries of the chief executive officers of HP's peer companies,” the company said in a Securities and Exchange filing.While Whitman drew a salary of only $1 in 2012, her total compensation was $1.99 million, including a $1.69 million bonus and vested stock and options.HP's stock, however, at Tuesday's close of $27.45, remains well off its 2010 high of above $50, prior to the departure of Wall Street favorite and former CEO Mark Hurd.From the time Whitman joined in September 2011, HP's stock has risen just 14.5 percent compared with the S&P 500 index, which is up 51 percent over the same period..–REUTERS
