Japan and the Netherlands are set to join the U.S. in limiting China's access to advanced semiconductor machinery. We are told U.S. Dutch and Japanese officials are set to conclude talks as soon as Friday U.S. time on a new set of limits to what can be supplied to those Chinese companies. After the bell in the U.S., Intel gave a dire forecast for the current quarter sales will be between ten and a half billion to 11 and a half $1 billion. Here's the thing analysts were projecting about 14 billion. Here's Bloomberg's men deep sing on why things are so grim. I think really what it comes down to is the PC demand has fallen off the clip. We've seen volumes being down 25 to 30%. And the fact that Intel's revenue was down 36% just goes to show there is some pricing pressure, as well as their channel partners who are working through their inventory. It may take them much longer because of the demand weakness and we know Intel's two main segments are client and data center, so client is where they still have the over 90% share print. I mean, there isn't much to talk about in terms of positives, but to me, the only server lining was a server actually doing better than consensus expectations. Bloomberg analyst man deep sing, by the way, Intel shares were down nearly 10% in the late U.S. session. We also heard after the bell from KLA corporation.

"I'd never mentioned anything about planning. I just remember it. I read something on a particular day. I came home. Sarah was in the kitchen. I said i think. I know why i had this passion. She had this passion to be nashville and we thought it was for music at the time but i came home and i said i think i know why. We're burdened for nashville. I said i think. I think we're supposed to start a church. And she just looks up at me and was like yeah. That sounds about right. I kid you not like yeah. That sounds about right. Let's let's explore that. And so i was okay. There's there's number one. And then i went into a pastor. Mark batson office. And i said you know i. I told them a year before. I wanna be still be the worship director but be based in nashville of fly back and this and that and this was before zoom was like a common household name and so maybe it would work now but he was like i don't know and so i remember going into his office after i talked to sarah i said said pasha mark. I think i know why national has been on my heart. I think we're supposed to plan a church. And he just leans back in his chair and he goes there. It is and so it's like two for two and then out of the blue. I had a couple of mentors and coaches call and they just said. Are you thinking about planting a church. I was just in my lifetime. I and so all of this stuff and it's like okay. God get it. You're ringing my doorbell. Like yes and so. It was the prompting that started. It was the stirring from the holy spirit. You know it's the still small voice we read about it. You know. I kings nineteen you know. It wasn't in the earthquake or the fire. The wind was the still small voice. So like this prompting. That i just felt and then it was confirmed by friends and family and pastors. And and so. I think when you're hearing from the voice of the lord all of these come into play right and then just in scripture and like the randomness of life like we had people out of nowhere. Just bring up nashville to us and it was like okay. We can't escape this. You know what. I'm saying. So i think hearing the voice of god like he knows how you need to hear him and so he's going to speak to you in a unique way so i don't want to just give a formula for it route but but i think when i was still you know. We have a lot of college students at bridges. And they're always asking you about calling and purpose. What am i supposed to do. And i say three things right. Say prayer asked god shocker community like whoever you surround yourself with there's gonna be ways and opportunities that you're gonna find your vision for your life your calling by serving someone else's so prayer community and availability because that's.

"Batson and i mean you're like the the main worship leader for this this growing multi campus church. You had like multiple groups. I mean you're like you got steer serious street credit in the worship. I mean you go around. And you're doing worship seminars. All over the place. You were kind of like one of the one of the leading stars in the worst from american idol to destroying the idols through worship and then and then god come steps in and says i want you to nashville and started church from scratch. So you leave this great situation. You had which many people would just cut off one of their arms to be able to be the worship leader at national community church. And you you start over from scratch in nashville And so that's your story. So i mean that's i very short version of your story so what i'd love you to do is just is just tell it from your perspective and include you know just because i think this is all part of the spirit depending thing you've learned how to be spirit dependent through sometimes not being to as why don't you just talk about how. How did you give us your story. Yeah i mean. I mean even with the church planning. It really goes all the way back to being the thirteen year old kid. My dad was he got out of the military went in ministry and he planted a church in roanoke virginia of all places. He didn't know anybody there. He was just for some reason drawn in his spirit to roanoke virginia. And so we moved there. And you know it's interesting. I asked my dad When we were moving back to nashville to plant said dad like how did you do. There were no exponential seminars. Back then there was no church planting you know cohorts and all that stuff like how did you do it. And he told me a phrase. I'll never forget. He said you know i just i. I prayed when we first got to roanoke. I said god. How do i do this. And he felt that still small voice of the spirit whisper. Just do what i put in your heart and everything will be okay. And i think that's really where my spiritual dependency. It's a legacy of my dad. I can remember my dad waking up at six thirty in the morning before school my brother would be in his sleeping bag on the couch. Alabi half asleep and we just pray in the spirit and we would pray as a family and just say god. What is it that you wanna do today. Can we come do it with you. Like illuminate our hearts. Illuminate our eyes to see the way that you do and it all comes into spiritual dependency because the holy spirit the game changing right like you know we. We know the story at acts and the holy spirit was released on all people and before that it was just certain people certain times for certain purposes but the holy spirit is the change agent in our lives is the guiding truth that we have. It's the the the part of god that's within us in our bodies are temples of the holy spirit and so it really goes back to being a thirteen year old kid and helping my dad plant and i started leading worship at fourteen..

COVID-19 Question Answer Session with Dr. Amy Baxter
"So let's chat cove in nineteen. You know what what? What are some of the myths out there that you want to help us bus than you know? Guide us through that. Sure well I think the scariest myth was one. That was introduced to me by my bank teller. I put on a mask. She had on a mass. And we've known each other for years and she said confidentially. Is this really a thing? Because I've got a friend in Brooklyn says he drives by the hospitals in no one's there. Is this really happening? So the biggest myth is that coveted is not a serious disease that it's the same as flu. A study. This week showed that there actually are twenty one times more fatalities from Kobe in New York were from flu so the biggest Smith is is this going way and is is really a thing and the answer is no and yet Yeah no I. I definitely appreciate that. And it's real you know and a lot of us in the healthcare space Definitely feel it but there might be that out and so as we as we think about it. You know What what are some of the questions year getting and seeing that that you feel? The listeners could benefit from knowing around the around this virus. Sure I think that the interesting things are how this virus is different from other viruses and some of those attributes we could leverage for treatments and for care and some of them may get really scary because we don't have One of the papers I read yesterday said this virus is unlike any other and I think it's true. This pathogen is doing things that other viruses haven't so first of all the biggest difference is in infectivity by age. Usually we have what we call A. You're a where the very young ages we have a lot of infections in morbidity which means bad things happening and at the old ages we have a lot of corporate entity mortality. And we don't see that this one is very much a a along J. It's very very low. At young ages goes way at the top other than it. Strange about. This is how long it takes to become infected and how precipitous drop is when people have a problem so. I think that you probably know that. From the time of infection until you show symptoms can be five to seven days so that incubation is very long the scary part is that forty four percent of infections come during that a symptomatic face. So it's very easy to spread without knowing you have it. Which makes it harder to track. Hard to trace and hard to know who detest. Yeah it's It's different and and so how about the ideas of like where it came from and and you know why any thoughts around that sure well. It turns out that bats are natural reservoirs of grunted irises. So for example a Bola was initially in a bat in a cave. That a young boy outside the incident town was playing with. And that's where the virus team from as habitats change as the climate changes. Bats go out of their normal territories and they happen to have grown viruses as a very common infection. It doesn't kill them so it can be transmitted directly to humans now. The certainly the time that this virus started wasn't Wuhan an was from a back but it looking at the strains and the genetic typing of it it seems to be mutating fairly slowly and it makes it very easy to see when it started where it came from so the wet market in China is still the most likely it came from but no matter what. This is. The kind of virus that comes from that directly to humans. I'd heard that and I wasn't sure if it was true or not. I'm like is it. Is it really from Batson mean and then I also hear people saying it came from a lab somewhere? It's a chicken egg thing or a Atlantic yet. There was a there is a lab in Wuhan because of the risk of corona viruses. It had been studying. Bats heavily said SARS and Moore's so both stars and moons are Corona viruses and there had been increased studying bats in that lab. But it's because they're dangerous and because there are risks not because they're trying to create run irises or create infections. It's the fact that somebody was looking at it in researching yet because it was dangerous not that it became dangerous because someone was researching fascinating fascinating. I didn't know that connection. Thank you for that. So as we as we explore this J shaped curve. You know. I'm curious right. I mean I've got a three year old and I've got you know aging parents will tell me more about that and and particular things that you'd recommend for safety and and You know just things that we need to keep on our mind share it. Will I have a couple of theories about why the J shaped curve is typically the U shape curve has to do with mutagenicity so how well your immune system protects you and young? People don't have very weldon alter union systems so they tend to be more vulnerable to respiratory diseases and older people also have decreased immune systems so the the very heavy incidents on people who are over sixty five which seems to be where the cutoff is to have a dramatic increase in risk. That probably isn't due to decreased. Immunity one of the theories is that due to increased immunity. That there were the two grown viruses virus alpha and Beta cuddling named that were circulating in the late fifties and identified sixties. And so it may be that those people were alive in the fifties and sixties before it. Kinda petered out has some immunity that was developed that point which causes an excessive immune response in older patients. Now the other possibilities are this. Virus doesn't seem to enter the body and then get into the bloodstream and spread everywhere. It seems more like this virus comes into the body and marches a bit at a time. Almost as if the the troops come in and they set vacations and it's like World War Two and so the battalion's multiply and spread on a time. So with that being the case the interesting thing is that paper nature last week determined that tissues that this viruses attaching to before the lipid fatty layer of the virus. Fuses with the cell. Can the news in the nose? There's something called an ace two receptor. That is where the little spiky protein hops onto and holds on and their ace two receptors. All over the body but the ones that were interested in the nose and children don't have big noses they also don't have sinuses. You don't get a false at sinuses teenager interesting so because of that. Maybe that's why they they're less less at risk to to get this. Yeah absolutely if what we're talking about is something called viral load which is literally hell many virus particles. You have That is going to be difficult to accumulate in a small child. One of the interesting things I found out was that the nasal cavity size is dramatically. Increased over the age of seventy and it's Moammar nails. Oh is that right. Yeah certainly we've seen that males can be more at risk of catalyses more at risk of catching the virus than females. The ratio is about five to three some studies on about sixty percent of males. Were the ones who are affected by an only forty percent cements
How A Profane Subreddit Moved The Market
"Really feels like from a market perspective. This is the closest we've been lately to Sort of two thousand eight financial crisis vibes well since the financial crisis. When is a I would say so and I would certainly say the the statistics back you up biggest weekly sell off since the Financial Crisis. We've just seen right right. Massive a sell off in risk assets an extraordinary amount of repricing of expectations for Central Banks. All around the world to come in and intervene and we've had other periods of sort of semi crisis since the great financial crisis during periods of say the euro-zone but it's just never felt as extremely uncertain as it does right now. I don't know I sort of remember late. Two Thousand Fifteen Yeah I mean late. Two Thousand Fifteen. You had all the issues going on with credit and you had One Big Fund blow up. So I'm still waiting. I'm still waiting for the second order. Effects of the market. Sell off that. We've seen to emerge that's true like we haven't actually seen any sort of major liquidations institutions of various is truly go bust yet amid the volatility. Obviously nobody You know we're not hoping that happens for now it's mostly been like a sort of a market's reaction but as you say there hasn't really been a A second order effects yet. Yeah very true so obviously the. The Corona virus is You know the clear contributing factor it's People are Gripped by panic. All around the world started in China late last year. Now it seems to be spreading to countries Basically everywhere but I also think that there is another contributor to the top. It's not just the virus that caused the top. Well I mean the virus didn't cause the top the virus was the catalyst for the top to no longer be the top and for markets to sell off but What are you thinking about you? Well I mean obviously it's our recent business week cover story that our colleague Luke Cowo- road about when the bull market got weird and About all these traitors online forums making crazy big beds and I think. In retrospect many people will see The recent cover as what really did it was good timing But in the history of of market crashes people always go back and sort of look or retail investors who start to become really overconfident. Some people actually look at retail investor participation in the market as evidence of the top coming And so some of the behavior that we have seen embodied in places like What Luke was talking about You you could maybe see that as an indication that markets were a little frothy. Yes so for those who actually haven't been paying attention to this particular subplot which is probably most people because there's bigger things going on in the world over the last several weeks prior to this extreme bout of selling volatility that we saw it was a lot of attention paid to the behavior of people on a certain Internet web page or chatroom or message board. Whatever you WANNA call it sent me. This is an extra celebrate it it was on Reddit. An extreme level of speculative activity particularly in the options market the likes of which we haven't really seen arguably since the glory days of the message boards back during the DOT COM bubble. And it's a really fascinating story. It's already Interesting Look at how the markets work and how retail players can really make a dent in publicly publicly listed equities. Yeah so this is the thing that I find the most fascinating about this subrata. It's called Wall Street. Bats and in recent months or over the past year or so a lot of people on it. Don't just think that they found good ways to make money Through investing in the market. They think that they found a good way to sort of forced the market into our force the market to do what they want it to do. So they actually think that they're impacting. How Wall Street functions and pushing up the stock price and that's where it gets really really interesting are they. In fact having this impact on the market right and I remember The message boards the raging bull message board silicon investor. Yahoo message boards from nine thousand nine. Nine two thousand and I think they were far less ambitious than what people these days. So for. More for more on this Let's start by bringing in Bloomberg's own Luke. Kalo who did have the cover story that curse the market overall Luke Thanks for joining us. So first of all. Just basically describe what it was that was worth covering hear about this About this subject I think for so long. We've been waiting for the return of the retail investor. And you know it's been this kind of a long awaited thing that's never really happened throughout any time during this bull market and this kind of the be careful what you wish for story because what became quite interesting is how you were seeing re retail enthusiasm get expressed in the markets. And so I. I remember there was one day. It was January eighth and this is when Tassell was still below five hundred if you can imagine a day in which that existed but It was a Wednesday and you saw a lot of bidding for the Tesla seven hundred strike. Call options that would expire at the end of that week. Tesla already been up like twenty five thirty percent that week as was its wont earlier this year but it just seemed like this is. This is such a ridiculous bet. Why would anyone do this? That doesn't make sense as a hedge. There's gotta be a better way to express a hedge if you're you know if you're short the stock or if you sold calls like what's going on here and someone said you know. This is just a Yolo bed and the second I heard Yalo bed I. I went to Wall Street. Batson tried to see what What do you only live once? Why not make a huge wager exactly and when I when I went there I saw a lot of people just That were seemingly enjoying a lot of success on Tesla and then that spiral to kind of other stories stocks where they thought the it would do nothing but go up and up and up and you know Virgin Galactic is the you know the next example plug power another one that had. It's kind of time in the headlights. And then lumber liquidators is one. I find very interesting because it's not like it's not that fun as stock lumber liquidators compared to virgin galactic compared to plug power like. It's it's really hard to wrap an enthusiastic. You know big story around it And yet you know a lot of the ones of the three ones I blast listed. They have in common. It's relatively low flow to relatively high amount of short interest. So when you got a group of people together that thought you know if we're all interested in the same thing and if we are all kind of combining buying power aware can have an impact well in in names like this it can and you were seeing at least the volumes. Go up like crazy in it It became too much to call it. Coincident coincident timing or coincidence after a certain amount of time. So Luke. Two things here. Can you walk us through exactly? What the options trading strategy was here. Because you know Joe and I kind of alluded to this in the intro. But it wasn't just that they could push the stock up. It was that they could actually exploit a loophole. In the way certain financial contracts or Wall Street actually works in order to make the stock go up and then secondly would you say that Wall Street bets is representative of the average retail investor. So on the on the first part of the in this this relates you. I'm not sure if if people actually believe this or this just becomes a you know very happy supporting evidence and something that makes you feel a lot better about making your moonshot at the. You know the fact that someone might be there to help by. Accentuate it and help bail you out so the thinking here. Is that when you say you're buying a call option on on the other side of that? If it's a fresh option there's going to be a dealer and dealers are not in the business of taking directional exposure. So when they're selling that call. Oh what are they doing? They're also buying a certain amount of stock to hedge their exposure. That's called Delta hedging and as if the stock does continue to go up from there it Resetting your Delta Hedge your which would be kind of gamma hedging but it's really just resetting your Delta hedge would entail that as the stock goes up you would be required to buy more and more to make sure that your directional exposure to the stock hasn't changed so when we describe this dynamic when we were talking about the the Tesla calls a tesla. See One thousand strike calls in. I believe late January someone on reddit latched onto this and said you know L. O. L. Bloomberg is admitting that the stock can only go up if we continue to buy calls because of the hedging algorithms. Which is you know. It's it's very much an overstatement of of what can actually happen. Can I just step in real quickly because you mentioned Delta hedging and Gamma hedging and all this stuff just for people who need a little bit of time to catch up walk US through very simply? The idea is people by a lot of call options. The dealer who sells it sells the call. Options are then on the hook if the call options essentially Become in the money right and so in order to avoid that risk of having to pay out a big wager just like a casino. They have to sort of balance their own books and that requires them to purchase the underlying stock. Yeah dealers are trying to make money from from the bid ask spread and making you pay both sides of it during your transaction They're not in the business of really making sure that Or or hoping that Tesla goes down the they'd like to be cover their butts in all contingencies in all cases. So that's what's going on there and it's just you know with some Greek letter surrounding it. But that's the that's the basic Kind of scenario mechanism. You describe perfectly so trying to exploit the fact that dealers are big banks on wall. Street need to maintain a a neutral position when they're writing all these contracts doesn't strike me as something that your average retail mom and pop investor Is Really doing so is Wall Street bets a little bit different. I? I'd say there are a lot more Aggressive about Certain tactics being used and the kind of The hurting behavior. I don't think the average retail traders really trying to think of okay like if I get together with Jim down the street and go Mary across the road who I play bridge with. If we really get together and start you know. Stockpiling are potential buying power that we can kind of. Maybe maybe lift some bids here. Maybe get some dealers offside may be caused some kind of gametes. So yeah it does seem from that From that point of view a lot more sophisticated and ambitious than you know Some people others speculating. An auction. Options might be on the other hand just because it sounds more sophisticated doesn't mean it's a better strategy doesn't make what's being said more true because if we've learned anything about kind of the recent market dynamics presuming you're the only actor in the market and able to move it is kind of. It's it's a fool's errand and that's why you know if some if there's power out there to To buy all these options you you have to recognize it on the other side of it. There's going to be Potentially a a desire to sell. And we've seen a lot of selling pressure come into the market that's completely overwhelmed. Whatever retail buying markets? Probably I mean. The market's gotten absolutely clobbered usage. Here article came out and presumably. If you had been buying about your call options ahead of that you're A- one is not doing particularly well this week with that strategy. Yeah like we. We saw a bunch of ten thousand percent Up Days for a lot of these moonshot options but most out of the money and very low delta options are going to expire worthless. It's just the kind of the name of the game. Okay so on that note in addition to having Luke. Join us for our episode. Today we have another guest. Luke has said Set the stage but we actually have the founder of the sub read at Wall Street beds joining us. Now Jamie Roginsky he Founded the page got it launched in two thousand twelve Jamie. Thank you very much for joining us for having me. Okay so I want to obviously get to everything that Luke talked about and this sort of crazy phenomenon in force in the market. That Wall Street bets has become well you started in twenty twelve. What was the purpose? What I'M GONNA start a new page on read called Wall Street beds. What

A Peek Into The Markets: Fed Decision In Focus
"Are welcome back to fast money. There's your numbers. A lot of green on the screen. Stocks rallied today the S. and P.. Five five hundred. Somebody goes home and says hey wins the best day since you'll say it was the best state for the S. and P. since October the Nasdaq is since September. You Got Music. What's your take on today's chewing your guy's dog we got music? What's your take on today's big balance but it was a little hip hop and if if you look at the bond market you had about a forty fifty basis point recovery? I mean in terms of a four point four point recovering the tenure. So not extraordinary. When you consider how low-yield Scott and you look at the Batson semiconductor some of the Higher Beta stuff? You got a nice bounce but yes the vix twelve to thirteen percent today. The things that are hanging over the market which are still now growth expectations. I think haven't really changed and we have to get through some other extraordinary tech this week. So net net by the way. There's there's a fed meeting tomorrow. I don't think they're going to do anything. But I think the Fed needs to continue to talk about what they're gonNA do with that balance sheet because we talk all the time Brian Show some great graphs on the correlation relation between the market and the size of the the Fed balance sheet very important. Not your friends. I think that's exactly right. I mean it's a fed data mart. Think a lot of today's move was basically on the back doc of anticipation of this apple number which market guy and lining up ahead of the Fed. Tomorrow which got only knows what they say but for every Apple Nafta market. And we're GONNA talk about it later but you Kevin. AMD The southbound four percent. You have Xilin down eight percent so there's a lot of cross-currents here again. I don't think yesterday solved anything necessarily and I certainly don't think today's action in did I would say just stay patient here you look at the breadth today and maybe the best market days Tober but the internals were tepid advantage over decliners. Three to one I WANNA see days five to one six to one seventy one. We didn't get that today. Copper soft crude bounce very tepidly you saw the shares as the China. ETF AS HR down on the days. So you didn't get that oath that you WANNA see coming off a low. Yesterday you had about thirty percent of the market. Make a one month low if you're looking for a good tactical by signal that higher about fifty or sixty percents that puts a low in. I don't think we're there yet. I was surprised marketed. This well there was some very not so great data out this morning but weren't really not I. I don't know if there is some noise there or I mean so that I'm surprised of market. Did this well on the heels of that because I was sort of surprised how can maybe too. The short shows horn a little bit because yesterday we should have broached this idea about China may be coming at you guys on a plane by the way. Nice it when they can have live fast money on on on Delta Airlines and it's fantastic. Keep out via the final trait you know. We talked about maybe China coming in with some sort of economic or monetary or fiscal Michael Stimulus and there was some stuff going around this morning that the China's central bank was whispering about abundant resources. You know you wonder if there is this backstop even with all. That's going on there scary as it is that the Central Bank of China is not going to allow the economy to not recover. And I think we have to say. Hey hold on a second wait a minute before. We got the corona virus. I know it's a big before but but China was stimulating. The currency was rallying. China is the engine for certainly Asia and much of the trading world so emerging markets are down seven point seven from peak five eight days ago to trough yesterday only recovered eighty six pips today. I actually think there's a trading recovery emerging being markets to take a look at especially a laggard and one that moved three times. What most things move so back to China? I think they do have a lot of bullets. Brian I think they are in a position where they are stimulating balloting. They've already thrown some stimulus that the market they've done a triple are cut. I think to the extent that they have more leverage to pull on still planned economy. I think they can do it. Okay we've got a news alert right now on facebook.
2019: The year business went 'woke'
"Twenty. Nine hundred was the year when Saudi Arabia launched changed long-awaited share offering in state oil company. Aramco D- when Softbank lost its gloss when accounting giant tighten belts and when capitalism went woke. I'm I'm joined to discuss the corporate year with our companies editor. Tom Breath weight and Brooke. Masters are comment and Analysis Edison. Tom Can start with you. Can you tell L. is what happened with the Saudi Aramco IPO. Well it happened. Finally which is serve some progress because it took months and months of delay and eventually This massive oil company floated in Riyadh and now does have the two trillion dollar valuation that was so coveted by Prince. Mohammad bin Salman. Why did it take so long investor skepticism in short? I think one problem was that the Saudis would have liked to have listed this in New York which is the the biggest steepest capital market in the world but the main problem there was that they could have been sued for their alleged role in the nine eleven terrorist attack ax which Saudi Arabia has always denied it opens the window to litigation in the US which they desperately wanted to avoid so. That was one problem that the other problem was that most international investors did not think this oil company which is still fairly. Oh pay can still very much. Under the control of the Kingdom could justify the valuation valuation particularly at a time when oil prices have fallen. And when there is great concern about global companies in a world where carbon one is considered toxic change. They Saudis raise the money. Yeah well it got its public oil company to the local market in Riyadh. What it couldn't do was securer hefty amount of international investors so there was a lot of pressure on local Saudi investors? Some of whom were the same people. Who'll who were held against their will at a hotel the Ritz Carlton Reminders? What happened then? Back in two thousand seventeen. Several of Saudi Arabia's richest families were held old at the Ritz Carlton Hotel People like Prince. Alwaleed who is quite knows. International investor ended up with an enforced stay whilst their assets assets were probed by the state and ultimately some of those assets were confiscated by the state so these same people Saudi Arabia and knocked on their door and and said we'd really like you to buy into the Saudi Aramco. IPO and these people generally said yes. Yes we would very much like everyone else. We would like to buy the shares and so they did and it is floated and this little sliver of equity has been sold. And that is what justifies the two-trillion-dollar evaluation. Now it's not really like apple apple of a massive mega capps who's stock as freely traded. So if and when that ever happens we might get a more realistic assessment of what it's worth. Burke Saudis been a big investor in South Bank and the Vision Fund which. We've had corsage about this year. How Will Scaling Down with the IPO effect Saudi Arabia's ability ability to continue money into what I think we now call the troubled Japanese fund presumably? It might make it more difficult. I mean Saudis already having having to raise more money to diversify the economy and so presumably. They're not going to want to be quite to free with their cash. And of course Softbank is probably not the place that they I would like to put their money anymore. Anyway because Softbank itself by Maceo she son has taken some really big bets on companies that have not so far come good specifically specifically. I think we work would be the most obvious one. which is the shared office? Space Company tried to list and failed to at which point not only did it not sell equity but but it's lenders decided not to lend any money and Softbank had to go rescue it and its valuation has been cut significantly. I'm sure Tom knows exactly by how much he's about. Tell us I think I think from forty seven billion dollars. They tried various levels down but ultimately ends up with a sub ten billion dollar evaluation as you say failed to go public. Can they continue each trade. Yeah I mean as long as Softbank and others are willing to continue to pour cash into it because it is still heavily loss-making but the other thing they've done is scaled back their a growth strategy. So they are not spending as much money on new builds so they think they can get to somewhere near break even in the coming months. They've also filed a lot of people which helps so frank's image of takes quite a battering its credibility. How does that affect its ability to keep them investing well they have been trying to raise a second fund and it has not worked worked as well as one would hope? It's particularly problematic because as you may remember. Their first fund has an extremely unusual structure where it's not just people putting in cash. It's people putting in cash and then also they had to put in loans basically so they don't have as much cash as your classic Private Equity Fund. What have they actually have to pay interest on the money? They've got so I think if they don't have success relatively soon the way it's structured means that the lack of success will be magnified and make it that much harder for them. Son has apologized already. Instead he was to credible and he has also started putting a new governance requirements on the companies that the fund invests in food for them. I've always always been skeptical about some of the companies have invested in some of the valuations. They've invested at. They seem to have got quite late into the private tech game and got into in a massive way EH. One of the most ridiculous investments was wag this company that walks you dock for you which they've just finally pulled out of we. Work is the big characteristic Batson if that went well then or would be fine. But it hasn't so I mean Masan has this ability really proven alibaba to pick one winner that has generated a massive amounts of return. So if there's just one company within this portfolio then it could be judged a success but if you look at companies like Uber which I showed this year and his now full and a third in value if you look obviously we work and the marginal bets like y than as little really to say that this thing is going to be success for the big four. They've had quite the twelve months with so many scandals. What would you say? What did they end up this year? What's interesting is it hasn't been as bad? That is you think I mean. They have been criticized and find record fines record discipline for dreadful audits of companies that leader went bust but in an actual practical level. Their revenues are up and their dominance of the auditing business of the footsie. One hundred is up. They have taken taking a lot of terrible press. And they're probably. I'm guessing having a harder. Time recruiting best in the brightest. But I would not cry for them. The thing to remember is this time last year. The kingman kingman review was suggesting that they ought to be separating audit from other other businesses. Maybe broken up do all this stuff and then the CMA. The competition and Markets Authority authority in April said the same thing and they're going to move forward but nothing has actually happened so in fact life continues for them they still make a lot of money. KPMG I'M G. which is the one that has struggled more than the others has been involved in more of the scandals and also it has had prophets problems and so it has had to do meaningful cutbacks? Axum TRIMs They had famous where they stopped paying for people's phone calls and they took a lot of bad press. But I think it's worth remembering that. If you go back maybe a dozen years. You could've made exactly the same argument. Lots of concern about their dominance of the auditing market. Lots of concern. That audits weren't going well. This is remember post Enron and all that sort of thing and there were four them and there are four now so could they to relax a bit and feel that they've survived the structure phone calls over. This will come back. It's not clear. Their regulator has a new person. WHO's in charge of WHO is actually a serious guy and it is possible? He will try to do more at the moment. There's no legislation giving power to him to do more. It will really depend on how much Boris Johnson government cares about this stuff. I mean it was on the agenda of the previous government. Is it now. We don't
Game-Time Decision Making with David Meltzer
"David say what's up to fire nation and sure something interesting about yourself that most people don't know most people don't know that i asked my wife in sixth grade camp to go steady with me the through a friend and which caused her literally like through an got her when she said no that caused her to stay away from me until late in my twenties when when i finally had the opportunity to ask for forgiveness and that that one incident don't change my life because out of anyone in my entire life and i've lived in extraordinary story life of relationship capital <hes> that one person oh my god. I always think of i didn't do that. What would what what would by life be like because that woman women has saved my life and is discussed the cornerstone of everything i do. I guess is just a lot of truth to not how you start the race. It's how you finish finish the race. David and i think you finish the race in first place there. If there's a higher place the natty means my wife knows that's true so distant extraordinary extraordinary person. I say that you know people tell you that there's a great woman behind every man great man in the in the old days and i say the opposite opposite. There's a <unk> unbelievable spouse in front of every successful person pulling them along not standing behind well. That's awesome awesome and fire nation as i said in the intro. We're talking about gametime decision. Making what are we talking about a lot of cool things with david today but let's just start off with this. You know a lot of people make poor decisions. They make good decisions but the question is are we making these decisions based on on a wrong assumption so break that down force david i blessed i beat some really good decisions in my life and then i started realizing you know what i make really good decisions and it's just a matter of how much stable data my working off of and where does that stable data come from. I don't think anyone really makes bad decisions. Asians they made poor assumptions and those assumptions can be deadly than but. I think that if we're more interested than interesting if we asked for mentorship and help that's a typically we can actually derive our decisions from good assumptions and you know people say will come on man like when someone decides to rob something or you know to break the law whatever they're actually making an assumption right. They're making a risk assessment and mitigating that risk through the assumption. You won't get caught or there's all these assumptions that are made and those can be prohibited. I mean literally can be changed so i don't look to my decisions visions. I always look at the data that is in front of me before i make that decision an extra step but it causes great success in my life okay so so you kinda gave an example with breaking the law or whatever that might be but let's talk about like a real specific story or a real specific example of either making arawa assumption or right assumption. How do you wanna go with this but let's go with a real story here. Oh i got a huge one so my entire life literally since the time. I graduated a law school. I've been able to attract money. I have an unconscious competency to making money and through that i started assuming that i could make great financial decisions for myself without any help <hes> beyond that i owned over one hundred million dollars in my portfolio and i made one in data solution. I thought i owned a golf courses ski mountain thirty three homes. I had gone through a lot of my liquidity a lawsuit to try to prove that i was right of things going on but i made those decisions based on the fact that i had all this equity in properties like my golf course in my ski mountain outten and that at any time i go to private bank and borrow against the equity that i had and so when i needed a quick five million dollars float i went to my private bank assuming they would say oh my gosh you have so much equity of so much with the bank. That's not going to be a problem that you borrow. Just you know secure with one one of your assets. Meanwhile the bank was going on her. It was two thousand eight and they weren't willing to extend credit in fact other. Institutions weren't willing to to give me that credit either because there was no more stated income. They're a bunch of variety of things that i could have avoided if i just ask for help if i would have been more interested than interesting. Meanwhile people will ask me all the time how the heck does a kid who grows up with nothing is a millionaire nine months out of law school a multimillionaire by thirty lose over a hundred million dollars won battles option one batson one reality in life and i can tell you i've experienced this case experience this. I'm sure you have as well but if you're listening to this as well fire nation you know this people love giving advice. They love forgiving input. They love a giving their opinions. What is your best advice for the handle this input advice from others david. I take advice like a handful of sand so i do. I am appreciative. If anyone gives me their advice i know that they care about about being some way and so i have to be appreciative of the fact that they care about me enough to to help me with what they think i should do but what i have learned is most advice right in even if it comes from people who love and care about us doesn't mean it's good advice just because someone loves you and cares for example my mom tom. When i got a law school i got a great job offer being an oil and gas litigator out of law school but i also got a job offer to sell legal research on the new founded the internet the online and i went to my trusted adviser to aspirin by not even giving me but i asked for it and my mom literally told me that i had to be a real lawyer because because the internet was gonna be a fad and that time when i realized that nobody loves me more than my mom. Nobody cares about me more than my mom but a handful of sand. I was gonna let that grain of advice fall through my hand. Tell my mother thank you and you know. I am never more grateful to think that the internet was not a fad and that's what was the impetus in catalyst for me. Making my first million dollars is being in the right industry with an extraordinary opportunity and so i tell people all the time this let the advice go through thanked people for their advice but make sure that you're making your decisions based off at advice from people who <unk> who sit in the position or have the experience or knowledge that you want so for example. I have a plan when the market dumps again it does it goes up. It goes down. I'm gonna spend all my time getting in front of warren buffett and telling him hey warren. I have thirty million dollars saved. What should i buy rightly. Why should i why should i take all the time. That guy sits in the situation. I want to be ninety years ninety years of analyzing stuff for sixteen hours a day. Why not just go up to him and say dude. This is how much money i have. What should i buy. That's all i'm gonna do what should i invest in and he's gonna and literally if i have to pay one hundred grand get in front of them for five minutes and donated to charity. It'll be the best one hundred grand i've ever spent because he's going to tell me exactly what to do with my money and i will be way more accessible than i tried to figure it out myself. There's so much wisdom here fire nation link for instance. I can tell you that it was pretty recently. I'm going to name names for reasons that are about to be obvious but you know i was sitting down having a conversation with somebody and they were telling me how disciplined they were and how they feel like i could be more or discipline as a human being and i'm sitting there looking at this person and they're a good eighty to a hundred pounds overweight and so i'm thinking to myself this person is talking about how this when they are but they obviously can't just enough to be right or to exercise every single day or at least multiple times per week like why would i ever listen to any advices. He says individuals giving for those reasons just like david said with mentors fire nation. Don't take advice from people that aren't experts the top of the field in the areas that you're getting advice from when i want to start a podcast guess what richard branson although he's an amazing entrepreneur would have been horrible person to give me advice because i wasn't starting in airline company or a record company so i hired a mentor who had a successful business podcast in that mentor taught me you how to create a successful business podcasts. That is the key when you're arguing advice from people. That's how you wanna be filtering through and again always be looking at individual. Did you give me the environment saying okay. They probably care about me. You know they're giving me input to give me advice but let's dig a little deeper here. Let's think about this. I is this the right person person to be giving me this advice and oftentimes the answer is no now david one thing that's just reality. We all make mistakes. Were human beings is going to happen so break it down for us how we can recover from these inevitable mistakes in give back to our center. I think people have the wrong word when they say mistakes because i have another word that i look at that starts with an m. i. Which is miracle right so my my perspective of mistakes things things how i define a mistake is important because i think everyone should define it this way. A mistake is things that happen that i didn't think would happen right right or didn't go the way that i wanted to happen. That's a mistake. I perceive this and this was an what occurred. Oh my gosh that's mistake. No it's not it's a miracle and when it becomes a miracle is from the lessons that we learn from that which happened that we didn't anticipate or expect and so for me. I'm i'm i encourage people. I actually give an award in my company called the dummy tax awards and the dummy tax award is we go around and everybody talks about the mistake in their the perception that miracle that happened in their life and why it happened and how it affected the business we then i give a bonus those people who made the biggest in most invaluable i should say mistake or miracle and when i shift people's perspective into a different m-word into a miracle where they look at all the activity that they've had in the things that happened that they don't anticipate or expect otherwise people defined as mistakes. I just make a quantum shift in their life and say look. Why don't you i find that as a miracle. This just occurred and i had no expectation of it occurring. Why do i have to put a negative connotation onto it. Instead of for example my bankruptcy was was the greatest miracle of my life. It made every relationship in my life stronger it saved my life got me to stop abusing myself with alcohol and drugs and bad had people around me and bad ideas. It refocused me and take stock and who i was the biggest miracle. miracle. My like everyone around me was like dude. That's the biggest mistake i've ever heard. You lost over one hundred million dollars. No it's a miracle because i make more money i help more people in have more fun than ever had in my entire life and and i've used mentors the get there in even more efficient effective in statistically successful way fire nation perception is everything and speaking of perception. This is reality. I like to use the word time. Travelers were always travelling in time fire nation. We're be moaning the past or we're wishing being you know for the past. I love to say like my best four years of my life or in college. I wish i was back in college now or just like scared of the future or we're just like really excited for the future so we're just thinking about that that that so few of us are living in the present. We don't time travelers where he's in the past or in the future. There were never just here today in the presence. How can we solve that. How can we focus on the present david i do. I pay attention to time right. Having time is essential i separate time to to construct the manmade constructive twenty four hours and so if i'm looking and studying my time studying my calendar under which is what the host of platform of time is. I'm looking at it with a lens of productivity inaccessibility. How much value can i provide how accessible am m._i._t. Others as well as how am i access thing what i want and then the second time frame that i look at infinity and i look at the construct of infinity entity timing infinite as i am not capable of a human being a grasping how infinite time is let me explain that in a real brief way. I don't think people understand or core even comprehend that if there's billions of years that our lifetime is a blink and that beyond that had ten years of the blink and beyond that one years a blink beyond that this month is a blink one week is a blink let alone one day one hour one minute but yet we get so caught up in the man made concept of time that we're creating our decisions and assumptions based upon a timeframe that the man made construct not in the infinite time time that's why we see mistakes instead of miracles because if we could unravel not just this lifetime but multiple lifetimes we could see me a fact that <unk> different decisions in actions in some people may development as karma has occurred even though we don't have a direct effect and so like a puzzle if we we stay present in appreciate the piece of puzzle. That's in front of us today the president. We don't need to know how fits into this beautiful picture. How many times do we look at something. That's happening in the present and say oh my god. This is horrible. Oh my gosh this is great but when the puzzle piece finally fits into the big picture are we have an exact understanding of why in what that piece of puzzle in the purpose in profitability or passion of that puzzle all fits in perfectly and you're you're just wasting time and energy if you don't understand the two platforms constructs of time and one more thing about the man made construct people like to make money and i'm a huge capitalist compassionate capitalist but i always tell them. There is no such thing as work. You told me perception is everything. I agree. Why can't we just look at things. Activities activities right activity we get paid for an activity. We don't get paid for and if we look at that activity most people nor the greatest activity that you do every day especially see where we mature the unconscious and subconscious
Zachary Levi, 'Shazam!'
"Zam is out now, and that you've got to see it. And one of the reasons you have to see it is my guest Zachary Levi, who, you know, it's it's difficult when you describe an actor in a row matching up, but in this case it matches up. So well that you sit there and say this guy's got it. I can relax and just enjoy this movie. So actually, thank you got you. Thank you. You continue to say things about me even to me. Now that are I I don't I the words. I don't I don't have the words that Yousef Teves. No, no, no. But I mean, look actually, no to quite honestly the opposite. I mean, you know, the reviews for the most part ninety three percent of them. Anyway, have been very to me. You get not being asked to post about it on your social media. But no, it's just. That's very kind. Thank you. I really appreciate that. I just I have so much respect for you, sir. So the fact that you are saying such nice things about me making me blush. Filling. We did it do it. What would you do though of the great things about them is saying? Yeah. And just going. Yeah. If you could say it who would you be? I mean to be perfectly honest. Okay. I mean, you know. Yeah. Somebody asked me the other day, you know, what do you want? What do you want to do when you grow up? And and I said, I'm doing it. I mean, honestly, I I've been kicking around sound business for twenty ish years, and I've been really blessed to have done a lot of great shows and cluding Broadway and all that. But. To now be at this point in my career, and to just feel very healthy and strong, mentally emotionally physically. And that I get to now enjoy this journey wherever this rocket ships going to go like this is what I would going to be impossible. You were seemed very nice today. You know? This just now. Able to go on the they want me to do what? Sorry. I do have to protect yourself on some level. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. But no, I mean, I just this is all gravy, man. It's a super what's so great about the actor to is that fourteen year old boy. Yeah, they you seem to have, you know, somebody once told me once we all have to get older, but we can stay mature forever. Yeah. It's kinda great. But you get that. You know, when we're watching you do the it looked really natural. So what I'm saying is are just the. Really the people basically give you a schedule and make. Time like snacktime. Yeah. Okay. We're going to read a story. Well, I mean in some ways, I jokingly say that I've resisted growing up in in some areas of my life my entire life, and that's not entirely untrue. I, but I think that that's not I think most of that is that I've just always been a kid who really enjoyed life. I enjoy joy. I enjoy feeling joy in bringing joy. That's probably why one of the biggest reasons I became an entertainer to begin with. I had a very young age that I consciously figured out around four or so. Outlet at around four. I think it was the first time I was cognizant enough to realize that I intentionally make somebody laugh and that made them feel good. And that made me feel good. And I didn't ever wanna stop doing that. I was addicted to that drug and I loved the idea of being able to entertain and make laugh because I could feel the joy and people, and so I've always held onto things in my life. That have brought me joy that bring other people joy. And I think all of that stuff has kept me young enough at hearts to hopefully, bring Billy Batson a way that makes sense. Well, he is brought to life. So I'm hearing things about you being somebody who is not a stranger to the book. Yeah. No. No, no. So we're wishes them in your pantheon of comics when you were growing up. I wish I could say that my favorite. She exact. I wish I could say that I he was my favorite, and I knew all about them and everything. Now, you know, I didn't I knew what I think a lot of people knew which was not a lot of people. But it certainly within the comic world that there was this character that was a kid who had a magic word to them become
