The Key Takeaways From Apple’s (AAPL) ‘Hi, Speed’ Event For Investors

As expected, at its “Hi, Speed” event Apple (AAPL) debuted its several new 5G iPhone models, expanded its iPhone lineup from as low as $399 to a high as $1099, and introduced a new device, the HomePod Mini. Along with the new products, CEO Tim Cook continued to reinforce the company’s commitment to privacy, calling out how the feature is intrinsic within each device. But the item that caught our attention was the special offers that were announced by mobile carriers for Apple’s new iPhone models.

Early on in the event, Hans Vestberg, Chairman and CEO of Verizon (VZ) appeared to discuss his company’s 5G nationwide network and 5G Ultra-Wideband offering, including a focus on network capacity in stadiums, airports, and music venues – if anyone can remember what those are. Investors were apparently impressed by what Vestberg had to say as his company’s share price, having dropped over

LONDON (Reuters) – Investors managing around $20 trillion in assets on Tuesday called on the heaviest corporate emitters of greenhouse gases to set science-based targets on the way to net zero carbon emissions by mid-century.

AXA Group and Nikko Asset Management Co are among 137 investors urging 1,800 companies responsible for a quarter of global emissions to act, coordinated by non-profit group CDP.

While more companies are pledging their support for the 2015 Paris agreement on climate change, aiming to be carbon neutral by 2050, not all have been clear about how they will get there.

To help limit global warming to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial norms by 2050, companies

What Apple (AAPL) Investors Can Expect Following Tomorrow’s Event

Earnings season is getting underway, so this week will be a significant one for a lot of companies. The big banks will all report this week, as will a couple of in-the-news airlines and a few companies whose results are often seen as having broader significance, such as Alcoa (AA). All of those will be of some interest, but for a market that is looking resolutely forward to better times, how informative can past performance really be?

That is why the most interesting release of this week will not be an earnings report at all. Tomorrow afternoon, Apple (AAPL) will launch the latest upgrades to the iPhone, and the fact that their new products about the future, not the Covid-damaged past, will make it far more significant than any earnings report could be this quarter.

Of course, tech world is already awash with rumors, but the consensus seems to

Silicon Valley is famously liberal. Then, investors and employees started clashing over race.

SAN FRANCISCO — The day after President Donald Trump told the Proud Boys, a far-right group with a history of inciting violence, to “stand back and stand by,” during the first presidential debate last month, tech investor Cyan Banister tweeted that the group had “a few bad apples. “

The open defense of an organization that has been deemed a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center is one extreme example of an increasingly public reactionary streak in Silicon Valley that diverges from the tech industry’s image as a bastion of liberalism. Some libertarian, centrist, and right-leaning Silicon Valley investors and executives, who wield outsize influence, power and access to capital, describe tech culture as under siege by activist employees pushing a social justice agenda.

Curtis Yarvin, dubbed a “favorite philosopher of the alt-right” by the Verge, has become a familiar face on the invite-only audio social network Clubhouse,

‘Lack of updated information hurts stock investors’

The BSEC was also considering redefining the definition of Price Sensitive Information (PSI) to ensure its due objective

The demise of 62 directors from 32 listed companies were not updated in their respective websites, which prevented investors from getting updated information, said Commissioner of the Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission (BSEC), Prof Shaikh Shamsuddin Ahmed, on Saturday.

He also said that about 15% of listed companies’ websites were non-functional, despite it being mandatory by law to keep their information updated at all times. Additionally, 7% of the listed companies did not have any annual report on their websites.

The BSEC commissioner made the remarks at a webinar titled “Technology to Protect and Assist Investors in the Capital Market”, organized on World Investors Week 2020, by Bangladesh Merchant Bankers Association (BMBA) on the day.

He also informed that BSEC was set to allow stockbrokers to open trading booths across the country

Two analysts looked at automotive electrification technology recently, each coming away with separate findings that are favorable for

Tesla,

yet they are deeply divided on the stock.

New Street Research’s Pierre Ferragu believes Tesla stock is a good bet at the current price. Bernstein’s Toni Sacconaghi thinks shares are seriously overvalued and could fall almost 60%.

Sacconaghi recently hosted a webinar with Sandy Munro, describing him as an “automotive guru…well known for his extensive tear downs of Tesla and other automobiles and EVs.” Ferragu, for his part, tuned into a Mercedes-Benz automotive technology event to get a sense of what traditional auto makers have in store to compete with Tesla (ticker: TSLA).

What he and this team saw “got us worried,” but not about Tesla, he said. Instead, they are concerned about the

Amid a boom in SPACs, few women investors

If you’ve been following the SPAC boom, you may have noticed something about these blank-check vehicles that are springing up left and right in order to take public privately held companies. They are being organized mostly by men.

It’s not surprising, given the relative dearth of women in senior financial positions in banking and the venture industry. But it also begs the question of whether women, already hustling to overcome a wealth gap, could be left behind if the trend gains momentum.

Consider that studies have shown women investors are are twice as likely to invest in startups with at least one female founder, and more than three times as likely to invest in startups with female CEOs. It’s not a huge leap to imagine that women-led SPACs might also be more inclined to identify women-led companies with which to merge and take public.
