    Excerpt from Irish Times -- "Investors liked Apple’s latest earnings report, driving the stock from $525 to $600 (€379-€433). The big question, according to renowned valuation expert Aswath Damodaran, is why. Damodaran, an Apple shareholder, valued the company at $649 prior to the earnings report and $648 afterwards. There was nothing new; it reported low revenue growth and continued pressure on margins while the announcement regarding stock buybacks and dividends had little impact on Damodaran’s valuation."

    Excerpt from South China Morning Post -- "'When I look at China, to the extent that the data permits it, I look at the shifting structure of the economy and to the extent that one can do this from a distance sometimes, to look at the reforms that seem to me to be the critical underpinnings to support the structural transformation. At least on a short-term horizon, that is more important than the growth,' Spence said."

    Excerpt from CKGSB Knowledge -- "We can quantify the dollar value of innovation. And I think that’s one of the major issues that many managers face. They have to find out whether they should to put more money into the R&D or stop it. That’s a major decision and that depends on expected value of that innovation which we can quantify."

    Excerpt from The Michael S. Robinson Show -- "Corporate social responsibility usually works well when it's also in the company's interest to do exactly what it is doing. A great example is Gap. Gap sources a lot of its clothes and materials and so on from Africa, so they had a CSR intiative towards improving the health of villages where they source some of their materials, which is a really good idea because it reduces some of their own healthcare spending, it reduced turnover in the company, it reduced employee mortality, all of which improved their bottom line in the longer term, but it was also extremely helpful to the community."
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Renters, for example, don't pay property taxes, homeowner's insurance and, in most cases, maintenance costs. These expenses can cost homeowners about 3% of the price of their home annually, experts say. While those costs can be folded into monthly rent, apartment renters often pay a smaller share as landlords spread the costs among many tenants, says Stijn Van Nieuwerburgh, director of the Center for Real Estate Finance Research at New York University."

'Regardless, Instagram remains head and shoulders above the competition. In under two years, it has become the most powerful social media platform for visual-based branding in the world,' he said."
  • atlantic logo feature
    Excerpt from The Atlantic -- "In fact, as Michael Spence's research has shown, about 90 percent of job growth went to such 'untradable' sectors between 1990 and 2007. These industries are mostly gaining jobs, not shedding them."
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "One of the best papers on the subject is Data Science and Prediction by Vasant Dhar, professor in NYU’s Stern School of Business and Director of NYU’s Center for Business Analytics. The paper was published in the Communications of the ACM in December 2013. 'Use of the term data science is increasingly common, as is big data,' Mr. Dhar writes in the opening paragraph. “But what does it mean? Is there something unique about it? What skills do data scientists need to be productive in a world deluged by data? What are the implications for scientific inquiry?"

    Excerpt from USA Today -- "With the inundation of online ads, marketers are realizing that their standard ways of advertising are not always effective, said Anindya Ghose, marketing professor at NYU's Stern School of Business. 'I think we will see more of these novel, interactive ads in the next few years,' Ghose said."
  • fox business logo feature
    Excerpt from Fox Business -- "I'd want to see the results of some small-scale experiments. I think it's great you've got these pilots lined up, but I think they're going to be really important. You've got to ask what resources do you need to complete these pilots, what questions do you need answered, and how do you measure the success of these mini-pilots, because that's going to dictate how you scale this up."

    Excerpt from New York Daily News -- "The city would have also lost interest — about $175,000 worth — on the $300 million if they had let the money go, according to Professor Robert Whitelaw, the chair of the finance department at NYU’s Stern School of Business."

'The shareholders are there, and I think they’ve got a pretty good story to tell, about why they should be entitled to a share of the profits,' White said. 'The shareholders will end up with something.'"

  • Real Simple Logo
    Excerpt from Real Simple -- "Blue may reduce criminal behavior. After officials near Kyoto, Japan, installed blue streetlights in dangerous neighborhoods in 2005, the overall crime rate fell by 9 percent. It turns out, says Alter, that 'the lights mimic those atop police cars and seem to imply that the police are watching.'"
  • project syndicate logo feature
    Excerpt from Project Syndicate -- "The disputes between China and several of its neighbors over disputed islands and maritime claims (starting with the conflict with Japan) are just the tip of the iceberg. As China becomes an even greater economic power, it will become increasingly dependent on shipping routes for its imports of energy, other inputs, and goods. This implies the need to develop a blue-water navy to ensure that China’s economy cannot be strangled by a maritime blockade."
