    1. Carl Icahn is Right About Dell’s Complex, Self-Enriching Attempt to Re-Enter Public Market

      Carl Icahn is Right About Dell’s Complex, Self-Enriching Attempt to Re-Enter Public Market

      Carl Icahn has successfully tormented several tech companies in the last decade — from Motorola to Yahoo to eBay — but usually demands value extraction that isn’t always the best route for a company’s health or long-term investors. Icahn’s new battle with computer executive Michael Dell and his eponymous company, now entering a bruising second round five years after the first, is different: It is a righteous stand that other large investors appear to be backing...

      It's Too Soon to Say P&G Turned the Tide

      (Bloomberg Opinion) -- Procter & Gamble Co.'s 2019 outlook is starting to look more attainable. The company behind brands such as Pampers diapers and Dawn dish soap reported Friday that organic sales — a figure that excludes M&A and currency effects — rose a robust 4 percent in the first quarter over a year earlier. That made for P&G's strongest growth on this measure in five years...

      Investors Seem to be Balking at MoviePass' Parents' Plans to Reverse Split its Stock Again — And for Good Reason
      • Helios and Matheson, the parent company of MoviePass, is seeking to boost its share price through another reverse-split of its stock.
      • Two of the major research firms that offer investors advice on shareholder votes back the reverse-split proposal.
      • Even so, investors appear dubious of it.
      • They have good reason to oppose it — it would free the company up to issue billions of new shares of stock after it's already massively diluted shareholders...

      Why Did It Take an Activist So Long to Call Bt?

      (Bloomberg Opinion) -- David Einhorn's decision to take a stake in BT Group Plc may provide just the boost needed to convince Britain's former national carrier to sell a stake in its traditional network. That probably won't satisfy the activist investor. When it became apparent back in May that BT was willing to at least consider selling a stake in its Openreach operation, CEO Gavin Patterson's goal seemed to be to fend off prospective activist investors and keep his job. He failed at both...

      A Drama CBS Can't Cancel -- the One in Its Boardroom

      CBS Corp. sought to turn the page on a tumultuous stretch when it said last month that Leslie Moonves was stepping down as chairman and chief executive amid sexual-harassment accusations and that the media company was settling litigation with its controlling shareholder. Instead, the boardroom drama continued. On Sept. 25, the company announced that its lead independent director Bruce Gordon was stepping down, surprising many people close to the company...

      Patients Versus Shareholders

      Regulation and state intervention in the economy has a bad rap in the US. The Trump government claims that its deregulation drive (mostly in the environmental and financial spheres), is at least partly responsible for the economic miracle. The other day, Trump wrote an op-ed in US Today warning against regulation and state meddling in healthcare, more specifically plans from the Democrats involving extending Medicare to all US citizens...

      If James Murdoch is the New Tesla Chairman, That’s Bad News for Elon Musk

      Ladies and gentlemen, we have board drama at Tesla! I live. I’m going to read some tea leaves, because James Murdoch very rarely speaks on the record. Last week, The New York Times indicated that “some directors” thought Murdoch might do a really good job as the new chairman of the Tesla board, now that Elon Musk is being forced by SEC settlement to step down...

      California’s Effort to Boost Women on Corporate Boards Has Studies Behind It

      When Harvey Weinstein was fired a year ago this week, commentators were quick to point out that all of his board members were men. Similarly, when Leslie Moonves was forced out of CBS last month, many noted that just three of the company’s 14 directors were women. The #MeToo movement has raised a question that often follows corporate disasters: Could this have been avoided if more women were in charge?...

      Stop Griping About Wall Street Compensation

      (Bloomberg Opinion) -- Nobody really roots for banks after what happened 10 years ago — except for maybe politicians in New York, who intuitively grasp that banks generate a lot of tax revenue. Bankers and traders aren’t the most sympathetic characters, but a lot of people have lost sight of the fact that a healthy banking system is central to a healthy economy and everyone’s well-being generally...
