    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Yesterday’s gap was $9.23 billion, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The shortfall reflects an estimate by Damodaran, the author of four books on company valuation, that Yahoo has $8.02 billion in cash. The discount is a sign of 'investor concerns, merited or not, that Yahoo’s management might do something senseless with the cash,' he wrote two days ago in a posting on his Musings on Markets blog."

    Excerpt from Greek Reporter -- "The strategy that leads Greece quickly and with certainty to growth and reduction of unemployment is simple. Greece borrows €5bil per year issuing new bonds and uses all the moneys in public investments. Greece does not put a single euro from these moneys in the general budget, and the money is not wasted to 'pay' the IMF, which would send inspectors to Greece even if it extends no further loans. With some attention and care, Greece can reach a 3-5% growth in 2015 and higher in 2016. And by the end of 2016, this growth would result in 600,000 new work positions."

    Excerpt from PBS NewsHour -- "Occupy Central has now become Occupy Hong Kong. As of tomorrow it’s likely to become Occupy larger than that. And if the — if local police, through threat and selective arrests, are unable to disperse these demonstrations, we’re likely to see a very significant violent crackdown."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'It’s six years after the crisis and they are still facing continued litigation, so if you were in that foxhole wouldn’t you do something?' said Roy Smith, a finance professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business and a former Goldman Sachs partner. 'You protect yourself by causing these restrictions.'"
  • project syndicate logo feature
    Excerpt from Project Syndicate -- "Global markets have not reacted for several reasons. For starters, central banks in advanced economies (the United States, the eurozone, the United Kingdom, and Japan) are holding policy rates near zero, and long-term interest rates have been kept low. This is boosting the prices of other risky assets such as equities and credit."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "[PayPal] has been the crown jewel. This is what CEOs like. They like to be diversified with a number of assets in case one property underperforms, but here's the deal. Investors don't need CEOs to diversify for them. They can diversify on their own. They need to be accountable for one business with one core mission and one core brand and let the best assets go out on the marketplace and get the shareholder return they deserve. The biggest winners here are Icahn because he's going to do a victory lap, and not only that, the people who work specifically on PayPal who will now get options on PayPal stock."

    Excerpt from CNC World -- "Tim Cook is gonna have a good legacy, I may even say great legacy. In the sense that a lot what we are seeing is still inventions during Steve Jobs' presence... technology takes a while for products to come out, so what we are seeing are possibly a lot of influences from Steve Jobs, but I wouldn't take credit away from someone like Tim Cook, I'm pretty positive that he will have an amazing legacy as well, especially with wearable technology."

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "I think that financials, especially the banks, are very well capitalized and I think that going into the stress test process in the next few months, I think banks will surprise with their results and I think that the Fed will give them that approval to start increasing their payout ratios. It'll increase their dividend and I think that'll pop the stock in the next 1-2 years. So I'm very bullish on financials going into this market."

    Excerpt from mbaMission -- "In the application itself, when you’re talking about résumés and things like that, again, people should really try to highlight what they have achieved and quantify those results. Answer questions that may be out there, and if you have been unemployed, take the time to explain what happened and what you were doing in that time. Don’t just leave us guessing. … Help us understand."

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "'Anything that starts to erode or challenge the 90-day window could be disaster for them,' says Sam Craig, director of the Entertainment, Media and Technology program at NYU. According to Craig, if just 10 percent of theatergoers stayed home, it would mean a loss of more than a billion dollars in ticket sales."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'The incentive to manipulate is always going to be there: what we have to make sure is the ability to actually do it is reduced,' Rosa Abrantes-Metz, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business, said in a telephone interview. The FSB report 'talks about many things, such as no sharing of information among traders beyond what is necessary, but that should have been in place for a long time.'"

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "'Regulators probably don’t want to see big banks get bigger,' [Citigroup CEO Michael] Corbat said. '… And if you don’t have scale in a particular product line or business line today, you probably can’t buy it' – and it’s tough to build from scratch in an era of low interest rates and slow growth."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "The cycle certainly seems to be faster. The pattern is still relative to what we see in other industries. The challenge is that, in many industries, the dynamics just don't move as fast. Things don't replace new technologies, steel and airlines and things like that, as often, whereas in the tech world, the life cycles are much more compressed. But the same basic pattern shows up whether we look at manufacturing or retail or technology."

    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "That significant parts of the global financial system are running on dollars is no surprise. We discussed some of the basics – the fact that the dollar accounts for 80% of trade finance and 87% of foreign currency market transactions – in an earlier post on the reserve currencies. But there is more, much more. The fact of the matter is that there is a parallel dollar-based financial system – call it the 'Global Dollar system' – that operates outside the United States."

    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "For investing in college, the analysis is complicated by the fact that you need to compute the difference between expected income with and without going to college. People have done that, and the answer is that the payoff usually remains quite attractive, but it depends on where and what you study, and whether you complete your degree."

  • salon logo
    Excerpt from Salon -- "Rationality is not hardwired. Indeed, when isolated from one another, we are not particularly good at reasoning. But as even Jonathan Haidt acknowledges, 'if you put individuals together in the right way, such that some individuals can use their reasoning powers to disconfirm the claims of others, and all individuals feel some common bond or shared fate that allows them to interact civilly, you can create a group that ends up producing good reasoning as an emergent property of the social system.'"

    Excerpt from USA Today -- "'The overall size of the auto loan market is less than one-tenth of the overall size of the mortgage market,' White said. 'The magnitude is smaller.

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "When the Fed eventually tightens credit, it risks causing financial-market turmoil similar to the 'tantrum' that occurred last year after the central bank said it was considering trimming its bond purchases, according to the paper, which was also written by Anil Kashyap of the University of Chicago, Kermit Schoenholtz of New York University’s Stern School of Business and Hyun Song Shin of Princeton University."
