The Dow Jones industrial index booted Honeywell out last year in favor of larger companies, but Honeywell is having the last laugh: One of the companies that replaced it is floundering financial giant Bank of America.

Honeywell's 2008 sales rose 6% to $36.6 billion, a result that helped Cote collect a $17.5 million bonus.

NEXT: 10. A.G. Lafley, CEO of Procter & Gamble
