Apple CEO Tim Cook is in position to make a boatload of money from vested stock grants in the first quarter of 2012, according to data provided to the WSJ by Equilar Inc., which tracks compensation. Equilar’s data reveals Tim Cook is in position to make $96.2 million from vested stock options. (This is assuming he sells the options. If he hangs on to them, and Apple’s stock soars, it will be worth more.) The stock grants come from the period when Cook filled in for Steve Jobs as CEO.

Cook isn’t the only Valley executive in line to make big bucks from vested options to start the year. Eric Schmidt is going to have equity worth $16.4 million vest. The CEO of eBay John Donahoe is due for $10 million equity.
