The Psychology of Money · Collaborative Fund
Let me tell you the story of two investors, neither of whom knew each other, but whose paths crossed in an interesting way. Grace Groner was orphaned at age 12. She never married. She never had kids. She never drove a car. She lived most of her life alone in a one-bedroom house and worked her whole career as a secretary. She was, by all accounts, a lovely lady. But she lived a humble and quiet life. That made the $7 million she left to charity after her death in 2010 at age 100 all t...

“He added, ‘the above-referenced indicators point to two possible groups behind – purported North-Korean affiliated group Lazarus and the known Russian-speaking sophisticated criminal group Buhtrap.’ It’s also possible, researchers said, that it’s an entirely different copycat group making use of Buhtrap’s leaked source code.”

Have you tested your strategy lately? | McKinsey & Company
Strategy can be such a bear. Some companies go wrong by constantly searching for the “next new thing”—and, as one strategy guru puts it, you can always find “new stuff out there, and most of it’s not very good.” Other companies learn that mountains of data, analysis, and documents can distract rather than clarify. Strategy is a way of thinking about your business, not a set of procedures or frameworks. To inspire that kind of thinking (and the dialogue that accompanies it), a team of McKinsey consultants developed ten tests to help executives assess their strategies. A 2010 McKinsey Quarterly survey suggested that few strategies pass more than three of these tests.

Tesla grew rapidly and now it's cutting 4,000 employees: CHARTS - Business Insider
Tesla added twice as many employees in 2018 as it now plans to cut (TSLA) June 13, 2018 at 05:15PM https://ift.tt/2JDZJT1

Tesla CEO Elon Musk confirmed on Tuesday that the company will be laying off 9% of its employees in order to save costs and streamline organizational processes.

This year, Tesla added 8,000 employees to bring its total to 46,000 according to various reports. At 9%, it's cutting a little over 4,000 employees — half as many as it hired in 2018. In the email to employees, Musk said Tesla's rapid growth over the last 10 years, as depicted by this chart from Statista, is to blame for a "duplication of roles and some job functions that [...] made sense in the past, [but] are difficult to justify today."

Musk added that the layoffs will affect mostly salaried employees rather than production workers, meaning it won't affect production targets for its Model 3, which Tesla launched almost a year ago.

Tesla's CEO recently rejected the idea that the company was in need of additional cash from public markets to stay afloat, even after it has experienced unexpectedly high production costs for its newest model. Investors have expressed concern about the company's cash burn in the past, but these layoffs show that Tesla executives are starting to think its time to be more prudent with spending.

Goldman Sachs: Investors not positioned for Fed, trade recommendation - Business Insider
GOLDMAN SACHS: Investors aren't positioned properly for the Fed's rate decision. Here's a trade to take advantage of their negligence. June 13, 2018 at 05:15PM https://ift.tt/2JOSBT6

The Federal Reserve is widely expected to hike interest rates by another 25 basis points Wednesday, to a range between 1.75% and 2%.

Goldman Sachs has crunched the numbers and found that investors are underpositioned for possible price moves in bank stocks.

The Federal Reserve is widely expected to raise interest rates by another 25 basis points Wednesday, and naturally the entire investment community will be watching with great interest.

The sheer fact that the hike has been so well telegraphed by the Fed suggests that market moves will be minimal. But that won't necessarily apply to bank stocks, which have historically moved 1.3% on Federal Open Market Committee meetings, according to Goldman Sachs data.

In fact, Goldman has studied price fluctuations around FOMC meetings over the past seven years and found that traders of bank stocks are woefully unprepared for the volatility that may ensue.

This chart shows that dynamic in play. It compares the total return for exchange-traded funds tracking financial firms in the S&P 500 and the KBW Bank indexes and finds that both have underperformed over the past two months, controlling for moves in macro assets.

Coupled with its findings around FOMC-driven volatility, Goldman concludes that investors are underestimating the possibility of a relief rally in financial stocks — particularly banks. It makes sense when you consider that higher interest rates are widely expected to boost interest income for banks, which then filters down to their respective bottom lines.

So what's a trader to do? Take long positions on large-cap US banks, Goldman recommends.

"Based on the significant underperformance over the past month in the XLF and BKX, it appears investors have broadly exited positions in large-cap financials," a group of Goldman strategists wrote in a client note on Tuesday, before the start of the two-day meeting. "Bank investors are underpositioned ahead of FOMC."
