Lord of the Rings Series Will Cost Amazon $465m
"Over at amazon is worth from. It's a story from late last week. The retail giant's highly anticipated. Lord of the rings will cost an eye popping four hundred and sixty five million dollars for its first season. According to the new zealand government's official information act filing. Yeah i'm gonna say that again one more time just to let it sink. Four hundred sixty five million dollars for one season of television and we don't even know how many episodes it's going to be. My understanding is that that figure includes the acquisition of the rights. So i don't know that anyone really knows what that figure entails because we reported that the rights alone were north of two hundred and fifty million dollars just for global rights alone to the property. But that's still an awful lot for one season of television usually those rights. You amortize the cost. Over the life of the series so that the first season drops down cetera. The shows already been renewed for season two. I think it's already you know. The plan is for five seasons in spinoff. so are they trying to amortize. That cost over. Are they gonna shoot seasons one and two back to back and this is quote unquote one-season a television that stretches over into two seasons of of television and and and the budget is that for two full seasons. I don't know either way. That is an eye popping number and if it doesn't include global rights even if you take out that to fifty a crazy amount of money it's still like more than more than double the cost of what a season of game of thrones would cost it's astounding. It is a tremendous amount of money and a tremendous amount of money for a show which has no costly above the line talent. It's not like the eight hundred and fifty people who are starring in that show are making a million dollars per episode. They are being paid. One would presume a reasonable amount. Let's just say eight a non impressive amount because they're not stars. You're not spending this money on cast. You're spending this money on on rights and production sets and costumes and and the global rights like we talked about. You know like yeah this. This number doesn't make any sense to me. It's a lot of money this a lot

Dallas Cowboys Reach Multi-Year Deal With Star Quarterback Dak Prescott
"Salary cabin number for two thousand and twenty one is going to be twenty two point two million dollars all right now. Head dak prescott. In franchise tag again this will happen in a procedural sense but had to cow tried to go at this with dak prescott on the franchise tag for the two thousand and twenty one season. We've talked about this a number of times. That value would have been thirty. Seven point seven million dollars so the fact that the cow is now have him onto the books. We're talking about the value that is on the books in the books. However you want to look at the books whether they're e books or physical books whatever the case may be that value is now twenty two point two million dollars now. I know that we have all said some things about the dallas cowboys but they are not complete dummies. They surely budgeted for the franchise tag value. Because let's be honest. They came about twenty four hours. We think you know. Close to having the actually placed the franchise tag and maybe carried out with that prescott. So the cowboys have room for the franchise tag at the very least so you look at that quake matt that adam schefter was kind enough to do for you. That is fifteen point. Five million dollars that the dallas cowboys suddenly have because they've got this long term deal with that prescott. This is something that we've been saying for two years now. If you do this you can. You can kick this down the road. You can prorate it you can extended you can whatever term you want to put on it. You can spread the impact of the deal out of the signing bonus of the overall guaranteed money out over the lives of the contract so it doesn't hit you all at once. That's the one killer about the franchise tag is that it is fully and completely guaranteed in franchise tag is a one year deal so the value of it last year and dak prescott was on the tag for thirty one point. Four million dollars. The two thousand twenty dallas cowboys had to absorb that value all at once and they would have had to have done it again. Here in two thousand and twenty one but because they have adjusted that they now have fifteen and a half million dollars that they were seemingly budgeting for dak prescott that now they can apply to different areas. Maybe it is a safety. Maybe it's a defensive end. Maybe it's a defensive tackle. Maybe it's you know an offensive tackle. But they want swing tackled death whatever the case may be. We know that the cowboys obviously hold the tenth overall. Pick in the draft. They could go a number of different directions there. They wanna cornerback kayla farther patrick's retain do wanna take one of the tackles and rashawn slater as all this is. This is setting up and this is an important thing. I want you to hear me here and watch me here. You cannot waste this money. If dallas cowboys the whole point and getting this done with thac prescott besides obviously establishing having the best player on your team for the foreseeable future the point in doing this is to alleviate the salary cap space now. And i don't like the term when now if you watch us often you know that but you look state of the nfc east. It is by sudha. I mean the philadelphia. Eagles are a disaster. The new york giants doping daniel jones is legitimate. The washington football team has a great team but is void of the most important position of the game and a quarterback. Maybe they'd get somebody this cycle as we all expect quarterbacks to change teams at a higher rate than usual but the case in point is at the dallas cowboys are now. We're going to see this all day on tuesday by the way and we'll talk about it of course but they're going to be overwhelming favorites to win the nfc streit and you think about the conference that they plan is really a contender in the nfc. And i mean that with all due respect to the reigning champion tampa bay buccaneers. But you've got the bucks you've got the green bay packers and then who scares you. May maybe the rams you believe in matthew stafford but the point is thinking about the afc. I mean the. Afc has the bills and the ravens and the chiefs and the titans and the steelers and the browns. I mean you could go. A number of different ways. Did the colts have carson. Wentz ends up getting his act together and so the cowboys play in the weakest division in the weaker conference and so now they have this opportunity to really kind of take their future in the here and now they have fifteen and a half million dollars that they weren't necessarily planning on having use it and if they don't use it it is all for not so i mean we are all imploring the dallas cowboys to ultimately use this salary cap space. This is a very very very luxurious gift. That they now have been afforded that they didn't previously have so shattered of course to the dallas cowboys. Let's see here let's move. I'm i wanna talk of course about the bonus the dak prescott because well. It's stupid large. I mean it's amazing. Dak prescott has now the largest signing bonus in the nfl. You look at joe flacco. Once upon a time. Got forty million. Dollars matt ryan forty six and a half. Remember if you're on the fence about this value. We've talked about this before as well. Matt ryan became the first quarterback in nfl history to average over. He had thirty but to average at least thirty million dollars per year with his new contract that he signed with the atlanta falcons in two thousand and eighteen. That was three years ago. Dak prescott signed a four six year. Deal whatever you wanna call it. That was three years ago. They matt ryan signed that he was the first quarterback to hit the thirty million dollars a year. Mark prescott just hit forty but the reality and we've been saying this forever is that there are so many deals coming around the bend. Josh allens gotta get paid. Lamar jackson's gotta get paid. Baker mayfield's got to get paid extra calories. He's going to get paid the year after that. It's going to be time for joe burrow to finally get paid and when all of those players get paid this forty million dollars a year. Mark the dak prescott got this one hundred twenty six million dollar. Total guaranteed is sixty six million dollar signing bonus all these things that are currently the top of the nfl. The most in nfl history. That's the verbiage in determining that you're hearing associated with this and it's all literally true but it's all going to get pushed down because all of these players on this list. Joe flacco matt ryan matthew stafford at fifty million signing bonus. Aaron rodgers fifty. Seven and a half russell wilson not going to be a dallas cowboy now by the way sixty five million dollars. Dak prescott topped that all of these quarterbacks in all likelihood we'll top that that's the reality of the nfl things are always moving in one direction. It is up
Bill Barnwell Breaks Down NFL Quarterback Moves
"So bill. We gave you do the math a whole month away from this podcast before our dependency bio chemically kicked back in so i just hope the last four weeks have been everything that you personally needed. Pablo got on many vacations. I turned around my life after six months of just staying watching football now. Bill barn wells weekly column on. Espn plus and he hosts the bill. Barnwell show podcast realistically. I have done something that few human beings have accomplished. I managed to get one pack of moments from nba. top shot. yeah. We share that same addiction. You are far deeper into the game than me. I realized over the weekend. I just want there to be an nfl top shot. Because i feel like that's going to happen right. It has to. i mean. Imagine the things you could do. You could send somebody that colts fake punt from years ago or or if you wanted to try some of your friends. Perhaps you could send the russell wilson interception from the nfl top shot to a certain person with the initials m used to host the show. Yeah just randomly picking in that example in those initials absolutely but bill. We dragged you back here. Speaking of a certain quarterback who threw a certain interception emotionally terrorized ours. Because this is an especially dramatic. Nfl offseason. they're all these big name. Quarterbacks who want out of these relationships that seemed from a distance at least pretty broken and russell wilson and the seahawks. I need to ask you about that. I because i know russ isn't feeling respected by head coach. Pete carroll reporting. I know that carol wants to revoke all of his cooking privileges. We've heard now. Russell wilson like storming out of meetings which is kind of funny to imagine like door very lightly slamming so this particular soap opera. What is all of it. Feel like to you much ado about nothing really. I mean i just i. Just don't buy russell wilson drama. I go back to his contract. Negotiations this is the same player in the same agent. Who wants imply that he would leave football in the middle of these negotiations entering the final year of his deal to try professional baseball. Where russell wilson once for the iraqis and the organization he hit to twenty eight in the low minors before returning to college football. It was not a realistic threat. But if that way does he want the seahawks to give him more helpful on the offensive line which has been sort of the crux of his public complaints. Yeah i do believe that. And i think that the seahawks could benefit from giving him more help. They relied on russell wilson to run his way out of sacks and free pressures from unblock players which has worked for that stretch buddies also taken a ton of hits cuss russell. Wilson plays the way he plays. He is going to take a ton of sacks regardless of how good his protection is the best way honestly pablo to get him. Hitless frequently would be to run the ball more. Which is the exact thing. Russell wilson was trying to get the seahawks do lasso last offseason. So there is something here but i very much doubt that leads to a trade. My favorite thing about this new cycle i think is that russell wilson has relayed via his wrapped. Adam schefter that he is not demanding a trade but if he were there are these four specific teams that he'd like to go to the bears. The cowboys the saints. The raiders does any of that make sense to you know not at all i mean the classic russell wilson tropez that ciara was going to pick teams him in new york in los angeles which this is the opposite that list even the teams he chose are so strange. Maybe you'd argue that. He chose teams with great offensive. Lions triumph of the seahawks. But the trade doesn't really add up the same. Stu have agreed offensive line. But they're like sixty five million dollars over the salary cap. The cowboys have a great line. Whenever everyone's healthy but they also have back prescott. that's not gonna work either the bears. I don't understand. They don't have a great line or any cap space. That one makes no sense to me on either. Level the raiders. Maybe are the most interesting and plausible candidate of the bunch with a great line and some cap space to work with. But when i think about jon. Gruden as raiders coach. He wants quarterbacks to do exactly what jon gruden wants on every single play. I don't think any if it really adds up to meaningful trae dialogue. I don't think there's going to be a conversation between the seahawks and another team about trying to make a trade for russell wilson work but this is twenty twenty one anything is possible

Business Community Mourns the Loss of Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh
"Tony shay was a rarity a business. Executive who was almost universally beloved shade died november twenty seventh at the age of forty six following injuries sustained in a house. Fire connecticut home. His death prompted outpourings of stories about shay's unusual and unusually successful approach to business for twenty years. he was. ceo zappa dot com the online shoe and clothing retailer. He let it with philosophy summed up in the two word title of his best selling book delivering happiness in two thousand ten. He told cbs news. He believed it was possible to make customers. Employees and investors happy while still turning a profit which he did in spades amazon acquired zappa's dot com in two thousand nine for one point two billion dollars shea invested in the online shoe cite zappa's dot com. Then call shoe site dot com in nineteen ninety nine a young entrepreneur. He had already founded in grown and online. Advertising site called link exchange a year earlier at the age of twenty four. He sold link exchange to microsoft for two hundred sixty five million dollars shortly after investing in shusei dot com. He became ceo and the company changed. Its name to zappa's taken from the spanish word for shoes ocado when she was initially pitched on investing in shoe site dot com. He was skeptical in nineteen ninety nine. The beginning of the internet bubble ecommerce was still young and untested. conventional wisdom. Was that you couldn't sell shoes online. Because customers were used to try on shoes before buying them but then she learned that five percent of shoe buyers already purchase shoes from catalogs. That's five percent of what was then a forty billion dollar market that persuaded shea to take a crack at online shoe sales even though he later told cbs news. I'm not a shoe person at all. Rather he would wear one pair for two years until they wore out and then by another to conquer the hurdle that customers needed to try on shoes shape pioneer to custom. We take for granted today. Zappa's would ship for free and allow returns for a year. It was not uncommon for customers to order five pairs of shoes in return for. That was okay with shay. He wanted customers for life to that end. He invested in domestic call center workforce rather than outsourcing to countries with cheaper labour famously. He empowered those customer support employees to do whatever they needed to make customers happy. There are no time limits on phone calls one. Possibly apocryphal story was that a worker stayed on the phone with one customer. For more than five hours. Critics wondered how zappa's could make money by investing so much in the people who answered the phones after all only about five percent of customers ordered on the phone the rest purchased online shea. Believe however that the phone was branding opportunity customer service by workers who bent over backwards to help them would be customers forever and of course they tell others about their experiences in addition he wanted his employees to be so happy that they would consider working at zappa's a calling not a career. He went so far as to offer to pay new employees to quit. The offer received a few weeks into a new job. Ranged from about one thousand to three thousand dollars the idea. He didn't want employees to stay if they weren't passionate about the job and the culture his quirky management technique became widely known simply as the offer growth was swift in two thousand revenues. Were about one point. Six million dollars by the time of the sale nine years later revenues had reached a billion dollars after the amazon acquisition shea. Stayed on as ceo. He retired last summer. Devoting himself to an economic development project in las vegas where he lived under shays. Leadership amazon is said to have allowed zappa's to remain as independent as an amazon acquisition. Could be recently. However the company's begun integrating it more fully offering prime rewards to zappa's customers the idea to help it. Maintain competitiveness against chains like dsw owned by conglomerate designer brands with several hundred warehouse stores. Nationwide dsw's one of the largest shoe retailers in america it consistently plies customers with loyalty discounts and coupons in an effort to get them to return to its brick and mortar stores again and again but cova closures hit designer brands. Hard in the second quarter which offers first sales fell. Almost in half third quarter results will be released next week. Twenty years after a young tony shay became convinced that yes you could sell shoes online. He turned out to be not only unconventional but prescient in a pandemic. it may be about the only place to sell them in a statement following shays death zappa. Ceo kadosh dish.

Many of the households don't have access to the internet. This means many of thousands don't have access to emergency service.

Trump says he'll use his own cash to fund his campaign if needed
"Finally, there's some talk of. A cash crunch. Now for the trump campaign incumbents generally have a financial advantage but there's reporting that that the trump campaign has raised one point one billion dollars since the beginning of twenty, eight nineteen and has spent more than eight hundred million of that already, and some questioning of why the trump campaign for example, spent money at a super ad long before average voters are tuned. In and meanwhile Jason the Biden campaign raised three, hundred, sixty, five, million dollars in August alone, which is a new one month record for fundraising like that and I. Mean obviously money is not everything trump was outspent in in two thousand sixteen but it's it's interesting to wonder whether the management of these campaigns could play play a role in the dynamic in these last few weeks to. Share and I think you know the Biden people. They have a lot of support in among wealthy people. I think Kamala Harris has been probably a good fundraiser among California's well to do, and so I think you know a lot of a lot of people have decided. that you people who run companies and so on. Have decided that you know they don't want any more of the trump show and I do think that they're going to give Biden a fundraising advantage I saw that the president is thinking about spending. Hundred million dollars of his own money by. You know I think I think that that's that that's a red flag for him. If he doesn't have enough if they don't have enough, for example, the contest in Michigan Nafta books on other states and that's also. Going back to what Kim said about the Senate not just going to hurt the president but hurt Republican chances in the Senate if the trump campaign has to pull back in be more selective about where they're spending.
Trump has record reelection spending despite trailing Biden
"Even before their convention, the trump campaign, the Republican Party, and their affiliated committees at spent more than a billion dollars over three years on trump's reelection efforts. No presidential campaign has ever spent that much at this point in the season in July alone, the reelection campaign had raised one, hundred, sixty, five, million dollars Biden raised one, hundred, forty, million in July after having led trump and fundraising the to prior months. The post-convention August figures are not out yet. Both trump and biden campaigns have around three hundred, million dollars on hand at the moment sixty days before the election. But the Republican National Committee pulled in fifty five million dollars for the party with no debts while the DNC took in only sixteen million and has one and a half million dollars in campaign debts. This Week Biden picked up the endorsement of eighty one Nobel prize winners from the fields of chemistry medicine and physics their endorsement sites Biden's willingness to listen to experts and his quote deep appreciation for using science to find solutions.

Kodak Crashes 85% from Recent Peak
"Kodak. We've been all over this for the past two weeks. Right I told you they got a seven hundred and sixty five million dollar loan to get into the drug. Business Kodak the Film Camera Company getting into the drug business. Turns out in their one hundred thirty, one year history they actually were in the drug business for six years from one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, hundred, ninety, four, it was a failure they got out and it's notable that they got in one thousand nine, hundred, eighty, two years before the recession set in right typical top of the cycle de Worse vacation kind of acquisition move for for a company is being managed into into the ground so. That's where it to the reason episode again and and we're back in the drug business with this seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan from the government I thought that was just kind of crazy enough all by itself because sent the stock soaring from to sixty two on a Monday to sixty dollars at the peak on a Wednesday in you know the third trading session of the week that week. Just insane. That was crazy enough right. Then what are we talk about last week? Well, they granted themselves stock options the day before announcement like that's not fishy like. Crony capitalist move, you know to just try to rake some of his money off the top of the management team. Okay. Now. This Week There's well other stuff going on. So so since last we talked the SEC is investigating this thing. And the loan from the. International, the government agencies called the DNC, the Development Finance Corporation the DNC loan is on hold. And the stock as I speak Ios below ten bucks again, and if you look at the stock chart of the last several days, it looks like it was flatlined. You know like somebody whose heart stopped and then wham the hit it with the paddles and now it looks like his heart stopped again it's a ridiculous episode but I feel like I need to clarify something because of at least one feedback email I got in this case. No, it is not okay for these executives to get stock option grants it's not okay and it wasn't okay for them to get them. I don't believe even back in May. Right I put together a time line I wrote a whole piece about this for the stands very digest and I put together a time line and my timeline showed that the order the executive order from President Trump. Was May fourteenth. Two days before that Kodak moves seventy million dollars from a Chinese subsidiary to a US subsidiary quote in anticipation of an intercompany transaction and quote I believe starting up a new pharmaceutical subsidiary constitutes an intercompany transaction, right? So that was actually made twelfth may fourteenth. Trump is used the executive order and invokes the defense production act and says, Hey, you know, let's lend money to companies so that we can produce drugs domestically because too much drug production is overseas in places like China and India by the way if you research that, it's not completely true. We'll talk about that. Maybe another day Kodak made the director option grants the first time on May twentieth today their annual meeting. So, eight days before they're moving money from Chinese from a foreign subsidiary to to a US subsidiary anticipation of a major transaction. Then trump invokes this defense production act, which is just appropriates money for national security right two days later, then six days later, they grant themselves these options at premium prices. Then approximately may eighth according to an interview with the CEO Kodak, and this government agencies start talking about its new drug business. Then on July twenty seven, these idiots grant themselves more options. Then July twenty eighth and it leaks out stock was up twenty, five percent that day the news leaked out. and. Then Twenty John Twenty as the big announcement right? Seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan to Kodak the shares were up four fold that day July twenty, ninth the stock price hit sixty dollars. And the volume that day is like a hundred and sixty times the previous day and the previous day was twenty, two times the David were that. Next Day July thirtieth a fellow called Mike or non gap thoughts. Which is a a newsletter that he writes on sub stack non gap thoughts. He writes this article citing these suspicious option grant dates when and strike prices next day July thirty fourth. Wall Street? Journal publishes an article citing the potential you know ninety, they said ninety five million dollar windfall for CEO Jim Continente. And there were others on on the Management Team received the options to August. Fourth Wall Street Journal publishes an article citing a new SEC investigation into the disclosure of the loan and the option grants right because it looked like the the loan with the news of the Lomas leaked out on the twenty seventh I think is really what they were concerned about. But the whole thing stinks and let me tell you something what I alluded to earlier when I said I need to make something clear about this. This is not the way capitalism is supposed to work. A corporate management team is supposed to make a lot of money. They're supposed to get ninety five million dollars for creating a business that has performed well for a period of time. That has generated you know for ninety, five, million bucks. You'd better be generating you know at least a billion or more couple of billion hopefully in free cash flow over a period of time consistently, right a real sustainable business for that kind of reward. You don't get paid that kind of money just for getting a loan to be in a business that you were in for six years out of your one, hundred, thirty, one year history and sucked at. Okay that's not the way this is supposed to work. This is the ranking crony capitalism, the EST crony capitalism. And crony capitalism is when you get paid for no in people, right it starts looking suspicious back in May when they're moving seventy million bucks from China to the US, it looks like they already knew they were going to do something and then Oh, two days later trump invokes this this executive order appropriating these loans for this kind of stuff and then up six days. Later, we start granting ourselves options at prices that suggests we know the stock is GonNa take off like a rocket ship. Then we do it again on July twenty seven just to show you how utterly stupid we are. This is not the way it's supposed to work they basically what they did here was. They just took money from well, you know this government money. So you could say they took taxpayer money and they said how can we get way too much of this money in our own pockets? Oh, I know let's grant ourselves a bunch of options. Okay, your stand. Now, I don't have a problem with option grants in general I. Realize people need to be incentivized. It's just the way. Things are nowadays right to to attract good management. You gotta pay them. What looks like way too much money a lot of the time, but this is not that. This is a management team taking money from taxpayers and really taken ultimately from shareholders as well. They're given themselves equity for free that the shareholders have to buy in the market. This isn't the only episode of this. You'RE GONNA see there was a smaller episode that I I kinda filed this way I didn't think I was going to mention it but there was a guy. David? T hines in a story in the Washington. Post. July. Twenty Eighth I mean it's all allegations so I don't know I'll just say this poor fool apparently borrowed four million dollars in this federal PPP paycheck paycheck protection program it was part of the cares act. Right. The cares act was that two trillion dollar corona virus bill that was signed into law in March and included three hundred and forty, nine billion in forgivable loans for small businesses to maintain operating expenses. Mostly payroll, right? That's why it's called. PAYCHECK protection program. So you can just pay your employees even though maybe you're running a restaurant and they have to stay home because of the cove in nineteen, right. So this guy gets four million from this program and then a week later people see him riding around. Miami beach in a Lamborghini. A brand new Lamborghini Lamborghini. Hurricana. Which I guess. That's an electric Lamborghini costs more than three hundred, eighteen, thousand dollars again, how stupid is this guy? That's like granting yourself options the day before the loan announcement. And of course, these things are ripe for. For, this kind of abuse, this is what you get went when the government starts literally like throwing money around all, this is done very very hastily right because we think we have to act we have to act now. and. So this is what you wind up with. You wind up with Kodak and you wind up with this poor sad sack who who thought he wasn't GonNa get caught when he use P P peabody to buy a fricking Lamborghini. It's you know somebody's going to include that in some kind of TV you know some kind of fictional TV show because it's just too priceless. So that's where we are that. That's where we are in. You know the state of of all things financial in August of twenty twenty. Boy Twenty twenty is the weirdest fricken year. I mean things that I won't even get into some of the things that that people I know have been exposed to this year, but it's just. So it's also utterly weird when you shut who who'd a thunk who'd a thunk when you shut down the global economy because you're afraid everybody's going to get the flu or whatever. That all of this stuff would happen that you would get people you know in Lamborghinis with government money and you know Kodak Management taking money out of taxpayers, pockets would have thunk it. Anybody. With a brain is the answer to that one anybody with a brain. And what what you do about what you do about it well. Look we told I told you to avoid Kodak because. People look at that kind of action and the knee jerk. The thing that's built into your brain you know that's that's been kind of evolving for hundreds of thousands of years in complete evolved for hundreds of thousands of years completely different circumstances that have nothing to do with investing. So immediately, as soon as you see that surge Kodak you want hit the buy button but I'm telling you it's deadly and wrong every single time
Insider trading issues raised after Kodak's stock gets hot
"Shares of Kodak taking another leg lower today as the drama around the company Continues Swirl. The latest twist. Kodak. Significantly up to its lobbying spending before being awarded seven hundred and sixty five million dollar government loan according to Reuters Kodak Spent Eight hundred seventy thousand dollars in lobbying efforts between April and June. Compare that to less than five thousand dollars it spent in Q. One of twenty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred now as. We've been reporting here on fast money. The rise in Kodak's years before news officially broke of that government loans, concerns of insider trading and an SEC broke the company's earnings call last night Kodak CEO said, he supports the government's decision to put the loan on hold until I'd investigation is complete. Karen you have puts in this stock. What is remarkable is that it's nowhere near the level it was trading at prior to the win the loan was announced. Right. Five hundred percent more than that. It's interesting to me that that's a great return on those lobbying dollars, right? I mean eight, hundred, thousand. Seven hundred sixty, million dollar loan or whatever. It might be I think the CEO had to say that I don't really know what else he can say like does disregard those that all that option noise give us the money anyway I think that this I think it's sort of become an embarrassment of to the trump administration and they probably should just. Speaking now someone who's long puts right that they should just let this one go and not not fun this loan it's too noisy. Ten and Every part of that option is just terrible right Tim. What it gets back to you know even if they get the loan, are they the right company to be producing the pharmaceutical? Talk. Once upon a time, try to be a blockchain company. Now back to photography company trying to be a generic drugmaker ingredient maker is right company. I mean. This is a company that has tried to reinvent itself Multiple Times since twenty twelve bankruptcy. And so I just it's hard for me to understand. We don't have enough of a show to talk about the what lobbying efforts or like and the impact and how the shouldn't happen anyway even with real companies. But I think if you look at the trading volume volume on the stock, it went from trading by appointment to trading two hundred and fifty million shares at its peak two weeks ago It's still trading about nine million shares to about eating a million dollars of turnover which tells you there's just an extraordinary backdrop still I agree with Karen, I think there's more to go here.
SEC Investigates Kodak's Federal Loan, Stock Surge
"Last week, Kodak announced, it had secured a seven hundred, sixty five, million dollar loan from the Federal Government under the Defense Production Act to shift gears for making photo supplies to drug ingredients. Now, we've learned that the Securities and Exchange Commission is investigating the deal joining me now with more details is Wall Street Journal reporter Dave, Michaels? So Dave Codex shares surged after news about this loan broke, and that got the attention of the Securities and Exchange Commission. What can you tell us about what they're now looking into? Well, we understand that the SEC has opened up. An investigation they're looking at trading in the shares just before the loan announcement was officially made, and then also how the in the news about the loan was communicated to the wider market. Why is that potentially a problem that Kodak had shared news of this deal with some media outlets before making this public wouldn't be a violation of criminal law, but but it could be a violation of the regulations that apply to public companies, which they can be straightforward. They can also beat her technical, but suffice it to say that public companies have to have a lot of rigor around how they communicate. Information, that is information that is going to influence investors decisions about whether to buy a seller, hold on a shares and if the company released information. About the control loan before the initial announcement in released in a way that was. Haphazard or not well thought through and then that information. Leaked down in some form or fashion to the wide broader market people traded on it than that could be a problem for Kodak as a public company just in terms of their responsibilities in terms of how they're supposed to control the flow of material information. So what are some of the questions still surrounding this deal that our team is looking into right now including this question about the disclosure in the communication? Of the loan, we're still looking into the loan itself in Kodak is saying that. Alone details are not fully finalized and yet the announcement was made last week that it was going to be getting seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan. So announcing net to the broader market, ensure holders developed certain expectations about how that's going to change. Kodak's business. But the loan is in guaranteed is not finalized. Query whether whether it was appropriate to make make that announcement at the time. We're also looking into continue to look into some of the equity options grants that were made to executives directors in the day before the day, just before the official announcement was made. So Dave, what are the potential outcomes from an SEC investigation of this sort? What can we see come out of this and when? You know we understand this is Very early days of this, I mean after all the announcement was just made last week, so it could take. Months to learn anything from either the company or potentially in the SEC. If actually brought any sort of official claims against the company. So we won't. We won't know anytime soon, and also it's also not clear that this would result in in a in former allegations of wrongdoing SEC opens up investigations all the time they ask questions, they do the dig into something, they take testimony and they might decide you know, hey, this, this was a little weird wasn't perfect way went down, but there's not a clear regulatory violation. Yourself is just something that I think people who are interested in Kodak Interested in in this story would just have to stay tuned.
The Mookie Betts decision could haunt the Boston Red Sox for a long time
"It didn't take very long for mookie bats. He didn't even suit up for the regular season game for the dodgers yet. He's got that tonight against the giants, and they signed him to a twelve year extension for three hundred sixty five million dollars, so he's twenty seven years of age. This is a lifetime deal in La. Certainly Senate notice to the rest of the National League. We mean business here. We're going to be competitive for a long time. On the flip side if you're a red sox fan, because it feels like this was the the Red Sox said. Hey, you know what or last year. Hey, we're going to regroup and try to come back with a vengeance here in a couple of years and there was thought that maybe mookie Betts would end up back with the red sox. At some point. He started his career there. beloved there, but the front. Office didn't commit to him financially. And now the deal's going to be a referendum on both of these franchises. We move forward. If vets delivers the dodgers win, they're gonNA look great in the Red Sox are going to be reminded of the one that got away for at least the next decade, but you never know about these big deals I would never want to sign a player for more than five years. I would just be nervous about that. Just playing the odds of you staying healthy you staying competitive of the cost that goes along with that athlete there. But. We see this with a lot of these baseball players. You sign him up if it's Mike Trout and if it's Bryce, Harper if it's Garrett Cole you want to lock them in, and also there's going to be a question. mookie Betts, no longer in that hitter, friendly fenway park fans in both cities are going to keep a close eye on mookie and his performance in La. La should be one of the more intriguing subplots in this unusual season, and if you look at the numbers with Mukhi Bats, you know my feelings about Mookie Betts. He was must see TV when he was playing for the Red Sox and that will be the same implying the dodgers i. just don't know if you'll be the same style of player that he was at fenway. then. He's going to be that at dodger stadium if you start to look at the numbers since twenty sixteen where mookie Betts ranks. And I know that we think my trout, the coronation, your best player in baseball in the future hall of fame, absolutely no problem with that. mookie Betts. Was the east. Coast version of Mike Trout from the standpoint of he could do everything. and. He's getting paid to do everything now a runs. Nobody scored more runs since two thousand sixteen hits third doubles I. Even home runs. He's not a home run hitting guy. He's five nine one eighty and five nine, one eighty. Thank you thank you? Nineteenth in home runs. You look at RBI's. He's up there. He's you know. He's in the top ten in stolen bases batting average. He puts up numbers all around good fielder as well by all accounts, good clubhouse guy, so the dodgers are investing in somebody who will be the face of the franchise for years to
Opening Day Arrives For The Los Angeles Dodgers
"We've got the Yankees and the dodgers in separate games in a doubleheader tonight, and they are the Vegas Co favorites this year for those who haven't seen it. What is your world series prediction at the end of this unprecedented sprint of a baseball season? Will Greenie everyone's talking about the Yankees and dodgers and look at their rosters and their stars in the Yankees Got Garrett Cole this off season. The dodgers got bets so I'm going Yankees dodgers and they're just so stacked greeny and Sprint with sixteen games. I'm not sure what's going to happen. There's a lot of crazy things that could happen in two thousand twenty. At those two teams on paper, you have to say they're the world series favorites and you mentioned bets here. Let's get back to him. I don't know that anyone was really expecting on the day before the season began for mookie Betts to sign a three hundred sixty five million dollar contract extension. What was your reaction? First of all good for mookie Betts he's one of the top players in the game at a historically great player, and he's getting to play for the LA dodgers one of the top teams when the top franchises in all of baseball and so men good for Mookie Betts and I. Think a lot of fans are gonNA. Say Oh, well, look you know. Baseball's going to be fine. Players were getting paid, but you really look at why the players were so upset. This off season, and in all these negotiations with the owners is that salaries have not been really increasing with the state of play in Major League Baseball. You look at revenues have pretty much triple. Since Alex Rodriguez's huge contract twenty years ago, franchise values are up seven x in the last twenty years, but yet our top players are still just kind of making a round the same. They've been making for decades, so mookie Betts got a great contract, but I think what you've seen is a lot of teams are spreading these deals out. He's got twelve years right there. Spreading these deals out to stay under the luxury tax. This luxury tax is a problem for major. League baseball players and MOOKIE got his, but a lot of players won't get. There's this off season.

"That includes a sixty five million dollars signing bonus. I guess the question is how much does Russell mean to this Seahawks team. A lot. I mean pretty much heavenly quarterback in the NFL when you find in its special. I mean, the Seahawks don't want to go down the road where her or having Jackson or her wider or something like that guy in the offense. However, a record Bax have shown that they're going to get the most money. They're an extension of the coach field. I think if you look at the NFL organization every coach many every quarterback kind of the way it works right now is paid player in the NFL right now, that's probably going to change because there are other players who deals are coming up that will probably want outdo Russell. And so he has his big chunk of money right now. But that will last is because of the nature of the position finances involved. And so we hear a positive here where keeping an elite quarterback are there any drawbacks to such a large contract for sure the the Cavs about one hundred and eighty eight point two million dollars. So he's going to count for about eighteen percent of the cap. So that's going to affect the amount of money. You have to dish. Surround the rest of the team and re-signing guys and just looking at defensively, and that's one of the hallmarks of repeat Carola team is defense. They don't have enough money to sign. Frank Clark jarran Reed, Bobby Wagner, the guys that really are going to do. Well, they were really young secondary. Rely those contracts will be coming up soon as well. And who knows who they're going to draft and those players can be up after three or four years, and they'll need new deals if they are standouts in Russell Wilson is still going to be on that thirty five million dollar a year contract. So it definitely impacts what they can do with the rest of the roster. But this this isn't something that's going to be specific to the Seahawks. Simply because like I said the quarterbacks make all the money. And so if you're going to be competitive immediately quarterback to do that. And they're going to make all the money. So everybody needs to navigate around the salary cap. He's oppose we are going to be saying goodbye to some well known players because of how this salary works overtime. And that's that's just the way things go because certain players are. Gonna want more money than Seok skin simply afford. I think the one thing that really look at here is this your the Seahawks right now have four drastic that could change if they trade Frank Clark. They can accumulate a couple more John Schneider. Very uncomfortable. Having four drastic he loves the draft your for this week. That's coming up next week next year, they have eleven draft picks. And so that's right now that includes compensatory picks for players that got away this year, if they're going to retool younger players were they don't have to sell it a lot of money that's going to be next year's draft. And that's when Russell's big fat contract really begins to kick in where they're gonna need to track. Young good players that can make immediate impacts.

So he is now the highest paid now this guy is a five time pro bowler. He was the quarterback. So far for the only Seattle Seahawk team to ever win the Super Bowl. They should've won another one one bad play. So you could say that one went down. And this keeps them under contract with Seattle until he's thirty five years old. What do you think the deal deal? Does he deserve the money? I see this is what always drives me crazy on that. Does he deserve the money? If the Seattle Seahawks are willing to pay him the money. He deserves the money. Just like when you sell your house. If somebody's willing to pay you three hundred thousand for your house, and you're willing to take it. That's what your house is worth. If they're willing to pay four hundred thousand that's what it's worth. If somebody's willing to only pay you two fifty and that's the only bit you can get and you're ready to sell it. That's what it's worth. And it's the same thing for what you do the job people's. Let's not fair teachers worked so hard. My wife's a teacher. You're right. She works her buttocks. F-?

Well, because fortunately, or, unfortunately, we have lots of people who are willing to do that job who are qualified to do that job, and he'll will do that job for that amount of money. There are only about five or six people is good. Arguably as quarterback as Russell Wilson is. The top five or six guys, you could argue one way or the other and who's the best and he's one of them. So he makes the money because it's a sport that tens of millions of people in America watch that creates billions of dollars of wealth every year. Advertising ticket prices and concessions and people coming in for hotel rooms days, and jerseys and other paraphernalia and everything else that goes along with it and gambling and on and on and on we go that's why he makes the money.

He gets to be the highest paid athlete ever. The Los Angeles angels gets keep him in their uniform for the rest of his career. Okay. So I think the question a lot of people wonder about because of what was going on with Bryce Harper and his sort of recruitment of Mike trout, what impact might Harper and that whole situation have had on this deal. Not a whole lot trout is almost in a universe of his own. We're talking about a player and no disrespect intended to Bryce Harper. Mike trout's on a completely different level. This might be when it is all said and done the greatest baseball player. We have ever seen through his age twenty six season. He has more wins above replacement than anybody in history. That includes Babe Ruth that includes Ty Cobb that includes Mickey Mantle I could go on and on about all of the great players throughout the course of history. Mike trout has been better than all of them from the start. And so the Los Angeles angels knowing that they have Shohei Ohtani knowing that nineteen year old Joey Dell a star in the making outfielder who's going to be with the team at this point next year. And all likelihood I mean that is quite the outfield to form and quite the core for the angels to have and build around. So the other side of this though, is you look at trout and not to.

I'm not here to try to get you to think a certain way, I never have been. That's not my gig. So I look at Bill de Blasio. And go. All right. He's the mayor of New York, but he's not alone. There are other people in this country that are like him, and he wants to take the money and move with over to somebody else, and he wants to collect the money, and then handed out to the people that he feels are the right hands because right now, the money's in the wrong hands. So. You go down the list and Wall Street Journal did a little response to him. Saying well are the people that have the money right now. Like, David coke. Donated sixty five million dollars to the Metropolitan Museum of art or Ken land who founded Home Depot had donated one hundred million dollars to the New York University medical center to treat patients of all incomes, or maybe he means Richard Gilder who made a fortune in finance and was the first major grant where the central park conservancy. To say, the parks or Stanley Druckenmiller who had donated hundreds of millions of dollars to Geoffrey Canada's successful charter school network in the poorest neighborhoods of New York is that who he wants to take the money out of their hands. They're giving generously. But somehow mayor de Blasio is not alone in his thinking that we the plenty of money. I just it's in the wrong hands. I want to take it from them and give it to who. I think deserves it. So then he also said that our legal system is structured to favor private property. If I had my druthers the city government would determine every single plot of land. How development would proceed? And he's serious about that. Because he's created an office that will ultimately sees private property and handed over to community, nonprofits, if the tenants have enough complaints, he'll take it away and give it to community, nonprofits. Now, this is a man who for his honeymoon. Got permission to honeymoon in Cuba. This is one Fidel Castro was still alive. So this office is seizing wants to seize private property and give it to community organizations. So they will do it properly. Now, the New York City housing authority has been fined two billion dollars for being a slum landlord. The New York City housing is full of rats. No, hot water ceilings that have fallen in this unbearable living conditions, but he is going to go after somebody who gets a complaint and try and take their property away. From that my point in telling you this. It's it's very New York. I understand, but he's not alone. He is not alone. And this is what you have to be on guard for. Alexandria, Okasha Cortez. I kind of find it entertaining. How the media has freaked out about her. I think she's. Amazing the amount of support that she is getting which says she is a big socialist. And she proposed having an income tax rate of seventy percent. We can get into doing that whole debate and everything else. But here's the deal. She has found a sizeable majority of registered voters in the United States registered voters. Fifty nine percent. We're asked us support her seventy percent high highest tax rate. Fifty nine percent said yes. Women sixty two percent of women said, yes. A majority of men fifty five percent of men said yes. And it's popular in all regions of the country. What is going on out there? I understand cultures change, but socialism is like the hottest thing going. You agree.
