    They couldn’t cut the cord. The cable industry may be shifting but Time Warner couldn’t deny the bottom line: Stock prices have increased 162 percent since the 63-year-old took the reins in 2009, earning him a three-year extension on his contract.

Investors appear to like the move as well, with stocks jumping $1.63 to close at $70.25 a share.
