    Excerpt from MediaPost -- "Craig and co-authors William Greene and Anthony Versaci (of AIG) analyzed 62 wide-release films over a six-month period. Among the top factors that led to increased online buzz were the film’s budget, its genre (horror and action do better than other genres) and whether the film is a sequel or not. 'This goes to show that studios do not have to remain passive bystanders, but can become actively involved in managing consumer engagement online,' Craig says. 'Similarly, studio executives can get an early read on its prospects.'"

    Prof. Scott Galloway on the evolution of fashion week

    February 19, 2015
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "New York Fashion Week didn’t used to be as public an affair. Traditionally, designers would show off their garb to buyers, who would write orders. 'Now it’s an opportunity for a brand to present their stuff in a controlled environment,' Scott Galloway, who teaches marketing at New York University’s Stern School of Business, said on Bloomberg Television Tuesday. 'It’s all with the hope that well-heeled attendees will take a ton of pictures and spread it to a much broader audience.'"

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "We can only expect localization demands to increase—and business pressures to pull in the opposite direction. While the political dynamics have shifted, companies should still have respect for human rights—and the strength of the global Internet—at the forefront of decisions over where to store their data."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "I think that the Greek government will have a hard time convincing its voters that it didn't give in, but that is, in my opinion, a minor issue. The major issue is for Greece not to go bankrupt again, not to leave the euro... this is the major issue. So, it's crucially important for the Greek government to compromise and then find a way to sell it to its voters."

    Excerpt from Reuters -- "'Our agenda is not to surprise markets,' Fed Governor Jerome Powell said on Wednesday at New York University. 'It is to be as clear and transparent as possible, to keep our framework out there, and let markets understand where we're going."
  • New Research Shows Online Movie Buzz is a Good Predictor of Box Office Success feature
    Just in time for the Oscars, Professors C. Samuel Craig and William Greene of the NYU Stern School of Business, and co-author Anthony Versaci of AIG, are releasing a new study demonstrating that online buzz prior to a film’s release is a good indicator of its future box office success. The authors contend that movie studios are in a position to use “e-buzz” to their advantage by adjusting advertising budgets and marketing strategies in real-time to increase the film’s likelihood of success.
  • bloomberg view logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "I know there are those who argue that value is in the eye of the beholder, and that any price can be justified if there are other investors who perceive an investment to be worth that amount. That is patently absurd. Perceptions may be all that matter when the asset is a painting or a sculpture, but you buy financial assets for the cash flows that you expect to receive."

  • bloomberg
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Typically, bloggers bring a couple things. They bring an authenticity, a new voice and they usually bring a younger audience... No brand ever says, 'We have too many 18-30 year old fashionable thought leaders.' You never hear a brand say that, 'Oh, we need more 75 year olds.' You don't hear that a lot. So you [fashion blogger Danielle Bernstein] bring an audience, an authenticity, and also, you bring a business model. You're leaner and meaner."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Greece has sort of a creative solution proposed. I'm not sure whether there will be enough support for this so it can be implemented. I think it's very important that some kind of solution be proposed. I think if Greece ends up defaulting, it will be potentially very dangerous for the eurozone as a whole and I think that eurozone participants see that as well and there will be negotiations and I don't know what they'll look like when it's all over."

    Excerpt from Financial News -- "Most important, however, is the almost certain increase in shareholder value than would result from a break-up. The combination of the various individual business units might be valued on a stand-alone basis at as much as €55 billion. With today’s market value of €37 billion, reflecting investors’ grim view of the bank’s future, there is a lot of room for creating value through a restructuring. Spinning off the investment bank might be the best way to capture that value."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'Greece finds itself now closer to a new bankruptcy within the euro and potentially' leaving the currency union, Nicholas Economides, professor of economics at Stern Business School, New York University, said in an e-mail. 'Greece could run out of money in March.'"

    Excerpt from Bon Appetit -- "'The first impression I got seeing it was that I could taste it in my mouth,' says Priya Raghubir, professor of marketing at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'It pushed you to smell, taste, almost feel the ice cream, a sensual delight which people are reluctant to want to indulge in. This really appeals to all the hedonic senses, and there’s nothing to distract from the ice cream, and it doesn’t allow you to get bored or want to zap it. It’s excellent execution!'"

    Excerpt from The Globe and Mail -- "Investors looking for decent profits in this environment may have to venture into dangerous neighbourhoods. 'If you are a long-term investor interested in finding bargains, my advice to you is to go where it is darkest, where micro and macro uncertainty swirl around every input and where every estimate seems like a stab in the dark,' writes Aswath Damodaran, a professor of finance at New York University’s Stern School of Business. Prof. Damodaran, who writes an excellent blog, Musings on Markets, provides a few examples in recent posts of stocks that may appear tempting: Petrobras SA, Lukoil OAO and Vale SA."

    Excerpt from Fox Business -- "Well, they've got a clear value proposition, because they've said, you know, we are basically a membership-based online marketplace that's aimed at cost-conscious consumers that are willing to sacrifice speed of delivery for lower prices. It's a very clear... good marketing message. I think there's an exit strategy in play there somewhere. If you look at most start-ups and investors, they're looking for an exit within about a five year time frame, three to five years. This is what he did for Diapers with Amazon, so I think it's going to happen again either with an IPO or a strategic acquisition, which would be Amazon."

'Each time the family member enters a rehab, we have a party to celebrate, only to be disappointed again. So, the markets may be celebrating a temporary reprieve but unless the fundamentals change, it will be short lived.'"
