Vote for the worst footnote of 2012!

December 20, 2012

As we count down to the end of the year, we always like to reflect on the year that was in footnotes. As with past years, there really was no shortage of crazy disclosures that we found buried in the footnotes. This year, we had such a hard time trying to narrow the results to just five choices that we decided to go with six instead.

You can cast your vote for one of these six beauties here. We’ll announce the “winner” on December 31.

1. Sears (SHLD) and its high-flying CEO.

2. GE’s (GE) former #2 getting an $89K a month allowance for the next 10 years.

3. Dell (DELL) spending $1.9 million to move an executive 200 miles and he doesn’t even last a year.

4. Yahoo (YHOO) saying –with a straight face — that there were no disagreements between co-founder Jerry Yang that prompted his sudden resignation.

5. Netflix’s (NFLX) disclosure about the need to repair its brand after its pricing fiasco in late 2011.

6. Barry Cottle’s 30 million reasons to join Zynga (ZNGA).

Remember to cast your vote here.
