Chart of the Date: Tesla’s Valuation Through Credit

Tesla’s 5.3% bonds due in 2025 would be five or six percentage points wider if they traded along regression of B3 and Caa1 rated automotive and industrial bonds, which is worse than the base-case scenario of two or three points wider using a 33% chance the bonds get downgraded by S&P. Technicals have been supported […]

Pointless CEO Pay Ratio Rule Is Pointless

Pointless CEO Pay Ratio Rule Is Pointless

This is also what happens when you allow just anyone to write, draft and propose laws for our financial sector. As a result, you get this rather pointless and silly CEO Pay Ratio rule, as a requirement for the Dodd-Frank Act of 2008. Some small background into the fact, as a response to the 2008 […]

Racist Will Always Be Racist, With Or Without A Confederate Flag

I promise this topic contains some modicum of finance in it. Why else would I entertain such a senseless topic. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past week or so, you’ve heard about the Charleston, South Carolina gunman Dylan Roof. He is the white supremacist who went on a shooting rampage in […]

Twitter’s CEO Search: Not Going So Well

Well, it’s pretty clear from Twitter’s message to investors. The search for a CEO for Twitter is still ongoing, with very little prospects of Jack Dorsey becoming the permanent CEO. That is, if Jack is still planning on being the CEO of Square. I’m not really sure why they couldn’t have announced Costolo’s resignation first, […]

Taylor Swift Turns Activist On Apple

People often ask me why I purchase all of my music. Aside from the numerous laws against piracy and the penalties that occur, I believe in supporting work that I like. Unlike movies, I’m very picky and choosy about what artist can occupy space on my iPhone/iPad/MacBook. Needless to say, if I like your stuff […]

I Never Did Like McDonald’s

Food or Financial wise, there is really very little that appeals about the company. The only time when I really enter a store is when I need to use the WiFi (which is probably worse than most Starbucks hotspots). The only other time is when there is absolutely nothing else around to eat. However, I […]

Twitter’s CEO Dick Costolo Resigns

Um, good? And Twitter Shares during the Announcement? You can also read the letters of both Dick and Jack here regarding the resignation and the task of finding a suitable replacement. None of that really concerns me, so I won’t share it. The only part that is of concern is the fact that the CEO […]

Dimon: Voting Against My Pay Package Means You’re A Lazy & Stupid Investor

I don’t really talk about what I own or what stocks that I like, but aside from Rite Aid, I do like me some JP Morgan Chase & Co (NASDAQ: JPM). It’s consistently outperformed its peers regarding and it shows that it doesn’t need to rely on higher rates to secure revenue. Despite all of […]

Enter Ben Bernanke, Exit Derek Kaufman

Before, I mentioned that I wasn’t sure how helpful Ben Bernanke would be in his new role at Citadel or whether his influence would change the way things are done there. Perhaps I already received my answer. Derek Kaufman, the head of global fixed income and a member of the Citadel’s portfolio committee, resigned two […]

Ben Bernanke To Join Citadel Investment Group

This man is truly a wonder. He’s been retired from his position as Chairman of the Federal Reserve for a little over a year. Naturally, like all of the other former Fed Chairman, aside from all of their speaking gigs, one would think they would simply fade away into obscurity. Instead, he joined Twitter and […]
