"Our assets longer. One of the unique elements of our firm is that we've always been our largest investor so we didn't really think about raising money and we weren't great on wall street with were great at raising debt. We weren't actually that even that good being dealmakers but we were really good at this strategy and operation intervention and and so that was what it was like. It worked really well and it works. Well today it's just a lot more competitive just so we can lick our chops. What were the kind of multiples you remember paying back. Then where my first deals that you know. I do a lot of healthcare investing and there was a business that a company called baxter. Healthcare big healthcare company owned a lot of different divisions and. we did a lot of corporate carve outs. But this business one that was an orphan. Inside baxter that he'd never invested in. It had lost one of their key suppliers. The business was going. Negative are pieces for learning some money somewhere losing some money and they just wanted out but what was really important to them as they wanted a partner who would still distribute the products through baxter and so we negotiated a carve out three times. He thought that time which obviously today diagnostic world. Things traded fifteen to twenty times. So that's a in of itself a big opportunity for us but we also had to do some heavy lifting about turning the business around. Would there a marquee deal or something that as a firm you look back on today and tell the story over and over again of particular situation from the early years. The way i was introduced to bank capital was we were looking at the oilfield equipment industry which in the late eighty s. You know when oil went to its lowest level that point there's a lot of carnage a lot of challenges and baker hughes had bought an oilfield equipment business and that happened. You know all of that carnage happened to this business. It was in the offshore drilling and subsea wellhead business very exciting business. I spent a lot of time. In aberdeen scotland and singapore and houston. But we ended up convincing the sellers that we would be the best operators of the business and so the sellers in this case had two hundred million dollars preferred on a business that was losing fifty million dollars and they asked us to put up some money at least to show that we had risk capital so we put up seven million dollars for a business. It was losing fifty now. The good news is that we did operate it well. The oil business stabilized. We invested in some really interesting new products and we ended up making forty to fifty million dollars by the time we we exited to say brown of ra. But it's great deal because it had shown at the time that we could do what we wanted to do which is understand industry and dislocation. We can do what we wanted to do. Operationally invested a new products. But actually the thing. I love about that story. Most is that the confidence that the seller put in us because they rolled over a big stake in the investment and the fact that we were able to purchase it based on that preferred stock being something that we would recover for them. It allowed us to have a really great partner. And i think that partnership story in terms of how we talk about carve outs with counterparties like to sheba today or or others like the big corporations that we see out there investing today at one of many important chapters that show how we can partner with those kinds of counterparties so at some point in that early evolution. Any one of these boutique specialists investment managers runs to this point. In time. Where you say should we keep doing exactly what we're doing or should we evolve into something else. How did that start to take hold at the firm. I didn't get there at the founding so there were five partners there in the early days but there was about four or five of us that came along in the late eighties. Maybe you're to after me couple around my time and and of course we were very sure of ourselves and we thought well gee how are we going to have your job. How are we going to be partners in this stink together and yet pretty flat partnership and he really felt like growing. The size of the pie was the way to win long term so they didn't have a choice being capital but to grow up because they have satisfy the ambition of a lot of probably overly confident. Young bucks who felt like look unless we grow this firm. We're not gonna be able to keep our talented people. And i tell that story a lot because every time i have somebody come in my office and tell me seattle. No if the firm can get bigger. Where's my opportunity. I i say. I've had that conversation with over a thousand people being capital since i've been there for thirty two years and as long as we keep growing as we keep providing opportunity for people. It's gonna all workout. It's interesting because at that time. One of my peers went on to run our and star public equity business. One of my peers started our credit business. One of my peers. Reinstituted are venture business as a dedicated business when my peers went onto star europe business and then one of the other ones went off to become. Ceo of sierra leone three of our company so a little bit of a strategy i which resulted in really a growth strategy. All along the way. How did you balance that opportunity set. You're providing for the people the up and comers on your team with clients who often look at those kinds of evolutions and say well. You should just stick to your knitting. We like what you're already doing. We do have the luxury of having investors that have been with since the mid eighties and have rolled over their capital and create a very large endowments as a result. They do challenge us all the time about what is the right growth strategy and i would say even there is an idea that growing too fast is a challenge but it really is the case that retaining people if you look at it through that prism and retaining talent that is in fact in their interest to do and if on top of that. You start off premise. Which i actually believe is true that you can achieve high performance at scale. There's this natural tendency to believe or feel like that scales correlate with lower returns and it is by the way but it doesn't meet its causal which is to say if you can find this elective opportunities at scale where you can generate high-performance which we think we've done over the course of our history. Our large deal performance is as good and sometimes even better than are smaller to mid size investments and we could actually build more capabilities. We can actually have a bigger team. We can be more global in our scope in all of that makes our business model. That much more effective. What were some of those challenges to growth along the way. It's never smooth bath. Well i think that one of the things that's unique. We don't have a ceo model. I'm a managing partner at bain capital. Which means i serve my highly ambitious and and highly needy partnerships desires for what i should do and the truth is when we started to build scale and we were in five businesses. We actually got into credit in public equity adventure before anybody else. In the late nineties we acted and operated as partners and were a consensus oriented team oriented collegial environment but we didn't have the single point accountability. That you really need as you scale. And so working through committees and working through part time jobs to manage business units or geographies or even the firm didn't work as well particularly through the the gfc. And so. I think that what we've done a lot over. The course of the last fifteen years is really built. The benefit of the partnership. And that..

Jane heard liquor who is reportedly feared by unions as a ruthless and heartless negotiator. Officially Paul scar has has he made the decision to step down after discussing his family. He said that the time feels right and that he knows the business will now be in good hands, but there are very strong rumors that skaara was forced out of the position or chose to leave because he fundamentally disagreed with action Bane is taken the airline back when Bain Capital was announced as the preferred buyer of Virgin Australia many feared that rather than doing what they said. They were going to do the US private Equity Firm couldn't be trusted and could just slash-and-burn ahead of a quick sale of the airline and for many their worst nightmares, and now coming true the removal of CEO Paul Scarborough log. View Bain Capital had repeatedly and publicly backed since they agreed to buy virgin only scratches the surface. Unfortunately, the new owners are also now trying to negotiate with the various unions and those negotiations over Enterprise. Bargaining Agreements are not going. Well. Ben wants to slash Pilots pay by around 30 to 40% and cut flight attendant pay significantly as well flight attendants would also lose lose their overnight allowance, which is around $125 a night each night that they're away from home and their Duty time limit would also be increased from 9.455 to 12 hours per shift which would make same-day return trips from Sydney or Brisbane and Perth possible versions customers are also starting to feel let down many have not received refunds for flights that Vision had canceled and earlier this week. It also emerged that version cab and crew are taking sick leave to avoid dealing with business class passengers that are unhappy about being served. Noodles as the in-flight meal and unfortunately, that's a pretty accurate reflection of where virgin is right. Now in fairness to Virgin their website does say that complimentary meals and the purchase of additional food and drinks will not be available on board, but they do promise that each guest is going to be served a snack and water regardless of the cabin and even that's not really happening at the moment virgin is a sub so long on stock that it's now rationing the snacks. It serves to economy class passengers and there's no longer any Diet Coke or wine for business class passengers, they're out and not getting any more stock but catering worries aside.

"bain capital" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Locations now over in India, it's far as becoming a global Happy center in the corner of ours, with 80,000 infections reported In a single day. Scientists around the world are racing to find a vaccine with economies and lives left reeling by the upheaval in next guest estimates a treatment may come early next year, but says involving the private sector and not being dependent on the government is absolutely crucial. Joining us from Mumbai's Bernstein, India. Healthcare honesty. Nydia Balasubramaniam Media Good to have you with us What's driving this optimism about a vaccine? Nothing globally, not at least four candidates, which are racing towards the finish line and barely actually scores is in terms ofthe capacity for manufacturing backseats. If you look at globally there around 5.7 billion doses of vaccine manufacturer and India alone has capacity for manufacturing 2.3 billion doses for you. So India has. Actually some of the larger manufacturers have been able to strike partnerships. It's enough, the noble candidates The seed, Um and stewed of India, which is one of the largest capacities globally has existing partnerships now with AstraZeneca knots would so that they can manufacture and commercialized their vaccine once it's approved. And they also have a partnership that nobody acts which is again another candidate, which isn't a stick and a good tries already so distant, see them and stood just threw serum and student in there. We have access to do off the late stage candidates. Biologically is another again globally large manufacturer, which has partnered with Johnson and Johnson's Johnson and Johnson, and has access to their vaccine candidate there will be manufactured and commercialize it in India. Something Because of these partnerships. India definitely has multiple short of the goal. And even beyond these noble candidates, we have several indigenous candidates also in the pipeline slightly earlier stage and Phase one and Phase two. But again enough options out there and which is why I'm fairly optimistic that only next year you will see the first few people stalking it's starting to get vaccinated. So no idea. What does it mean? What does it mean for the Indian healthcare, sect and Indian healthcare plays? Are they more than just a safe haven during troubled times. Absolutely. I think since school well, you have seen a fairly sharp rally when it comes to health care and former unspecific and I think a lot of it does have to do with the fact that there is a lot of dignity in the system, and people did. Flocked to farmer because it's a relatively more resilient sector. In fact, it's pretty much the only sector with a positive blood. Look in a fight, but I actually believe that fundamentally, we're actually at an inflection point. And from now on, you should actually start seeing a monkey on his good side. And which is why I Thing. E. Beyond the rally that you're seeing. I do believe that there is room for room for in a few dozen should now push for push on me. This is good happened. One is I think one is, I think the materialization of the complex Hendrik opportunity in the U. S. Ah, law. Seatbelts in Indian health, condescending about a submarine and we got a few technical issues that will try and get back to, But we do have some news is breaking moment. Just confirmation coming through from what we had earlier that this Virgin Australia sailed to bein private US private equity company and Bain Capital has been approved by the court. So that's That one done at the moment. Just have a look If there's any more details coming through because it was original from the air far but we've got Bain Capital Woman confirming that as well. Other needs is coming out, as well as Scott Morrison's been talking in the Australian prime minister looking at ways to increase international arrivals and also the member. They're looking at ways that they can actually perhaps get Arrivals from New Zealand coming in as well, and it could relax those restrictions that limited numbers of people can only arrive in Australia at the moment, so that's a couple of news stories. It's just breaking at the moment. First of all, we have been capital, confirming that deal for Virgin Australia on saying that it has indeed being approved by the administrators. Okay, let's have a look at what's going on Indian market boys. We're about three minutes away from the start of the session there on what we are, and having indications off is actually a down arrow story. We've got some price discovery as well and thus is reflecting what's going on. They're on reflecting what's going on in the rest of the region as well. Where? Indeed, the shockwaves that 5% plus full for the NASDAQ is being felt here as well. Right. I believe that we can get back to our guest here. Balasubramaniam, and I think you're just talking about the challenges involved with vaccinations. And I just get an idea of a country that size if you got 23 companies with vaccines is still going to take an awful long time to get everybody immunized. No, absolutely. I think. While I am optimistic that it will be a vaccine on the market only next year, I think the last person to get the vaccine is probably at least 2.5 years away. And I'm actually seeing three challenges number one. Even with the capacities we already have. I think it'll be fairly difficult to scale up to address of 1.3 billion population and most of the late states candidates. It seems likely that you would need two doses for person. So that's 1.3 billion population and multiply it by two. That's 2.6 billion doses that would be required maybe less so for hard immunity, but it's still a very, very large number. The second I don't think in 2021 we would have enough capacities to vaccinate everybody. The second challenge I'm seeing is even assuming that we saw for the capacity issues somehow, if you look at the kind of kind of vaccine programs that India has experience with visa, largely pediatric vaccines and vaccines for pregnant women. The steel they're talking about in another vaccination programme is easily 3 to 4 X. What India has experience experience so far with so cool change, storage and trained man forward about administer vaccines will be a very, very big challenge. And if you look at some of the recent programs that the government has implemented, it seems like the throughput of the system is around 50 to 20 million doses per month. And that is nobody close to what would be required if you want to vaccinate at least 60 70% of the population. S o. I think Jesus And if you tell me Challenges. Just tell me you say that the private sector should be involved in and not the government surely should be a combination of both. Absolutely. I think it has to be a combination of both. I think the point I was making all you is that if the government basically veteran on the mantel entirely on short, because then it's going to be conventional time for Us to access the vaccines, which is why I think the private sector should step in. This'll definitely bolster both cold chain storage and green man book capacities. Having the government needs to get going down. The private sector needs to get really creative..

Deval Patrick to Democrats: Others have plans, I have results
"Divall Patrick is the accomplish two-term former governor of Massachusetts and he's running for the Democratic nomination for president. His is an Uphill Hill. Fight made tougher by the fact that African American voters are not giving the only black candidate in the race now the boost and support. He needs to have a fighting chance. The Patrick isn't giving up with reasons I said earlier. You know I have Others have plans. I have results here. What they are right now governor? Patrick thank you very much for being on the podcast Jonathan. Thank you for having me all right so when we were writing up in the elevator you said to me what what was that that you're a black man can't win so let's let's go right there. We're talking about my aunt. Gloria man part was off the Rick Now I read your column I read your column and I you know I was telling you on the way up about a caller to a a radio call in show. I was on in South Carolina a few weeks ago and he sounded. And I'm I'm aware of my presumptions and say he sounded like a Like a black man and he said To the effect governor. Patrick he said you know you are exactly right. You are just right for the country he said but I don't think that America's going to elect another black president And I will say more and he said well you see that Trump is the reaction to Obama and and we're just not ready for For Black President we thought we were when we elected Obama. But we're not today and you know I I have not Had not heard that again Until I saw your uh until I saw your article and I know you said that's not exactly what you were Right the article was about well. I mean what we're talking about is my my aunt. Gloria who lives in North Carolina at the Family Barbecue will uphold. I my relatives in in in the in the in the yard at the barbecue and she said the way the the the system the way it is right now things being so racist that it's going to take an old white man into beat an old white man old school against old school and that was her argument. For why Joe Biden she thought would be the person who should be the nominee the and should be someone who could beat President Trump and the Washington Post did a pole with Ipsos where Vice President Biden foreign away is leading among black voters in this was a poll. Only a black voters this sort of reinforced On Gloria's areas viewpoint you're standing in that poll was less than point five percent Do you think I mean given the call from the South Carolina giving on Gloria and the family hold them well the oath of the look. I think I might experience as a candidate. Eight and watching Candidates and in politics is to be deeply skeptical of polls Really right up until the eve of the election the mole that it matters to say the obvious is is Is the vote cast by by voters you know polls told us that the outcome of two thousand sixteen presidential the election was going to be very different than than the and it's not that all poles are bad. It's just I think most of what we're getting today are polls about name recognition in that. Add respect I have a lot of work to do Nationally and we're getting that work done but I think the the The part of the of the column Jonathan if I may okay so as a Respectful of your incredible work. I'll give you the critique. No it just made me sad Because I think what is happening in many ways and this goes beyond race but I also see it among A black voters I meet is that we are so focused on the very very very important work of defeating the incumbent president that we are all of us looking for permission to devote our aspirations so we keep being We keep talking ourselves or in some cases being talked into. What is the smart outcome and candidates do it as well Columnists pollsters pundits and And so forth and I think you know voters others have a singular power and that is to make up their own minds about who best represents events their aspirations for for themselves their families their communities and And the nation and seating that to To people who were you you know hard at work trying to sort of outsmart or forecast outsmart. The electorate forecast the election before people have really begun to focus in on it. I think is a a is a worry not just for me as a candidate but for me as a citizen. I'm going to ask you this question that I have I have here. You may have already answered it. But I'm going to ask it because it's sort of our black voters being pragmatic or too cautious is not just black voters and and When I say When you when when I hear pragmatic I am hearing That they are buying a narrative about likelihood of success from people whose success at predicting likelihood is mixed at best folks aren't GonNa unreason their way through polls and punditry to the right answer. They're going to Eventually pay attention to. WHO's making the best case and WHO's likely to make the strongest case against Against President Trump and the fact that we know Joe Biden. We're familiar with With Joe Biden. Who by the way is wonderful person? doesn't necessarily mean that He's the most effective at a At standing up to to president trump and I'll just say if I may on my own behalf and I say this mindful that there are it's big talented field with with a bunch of my friends in it no one else in this race has a range of life and leadership experience that I do domestic and abroad private sector and public And when you consider the range of challenges that face people black and brown and white and everybody else how much like The experience of growing coming up on the south side of Chicago with other black people and That I had and neighborhoods like it. How much like that? Experience is is experienced experienced today in In the suburbs in small towns among a white working class People better be willing and able to be a bridge to change that That lasts while speaking of of your career. I'll be a little more specific. You were the two term governor of the Commonwealth uh of Massachusetts. Yes you were the former. US Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights. Division during the Clinton administration correct rang and in private sector at Bain capital in other places. Why don't you think given this range of experience and having I'm Ben in the race now is two months yet? I think so. Yeah too much like today that you haven't that you haven't been able to break through through well we you know we have a lot of work to do. We are focusing not on national polls are becoming famous. I'm focusing on building in the early states. We have With a real emphasis on New Hampshire and South Carolina for reasons we can talk about but we have organizations in each places teams growing very a fast in those two primary states up on the air with TV commercials digital commercials in in the early states and that is a that is terrific. Perfect you know in the I think in the days before I came here To your offices in. DC We were in New Hampshire. I WANNA say three three days and did nine or ten events in those days had four front page Articles in local newspapers. There's big headlines and so on bigger and bigger crowds and they're very engaged so for me it's not about you know just showing up and having rallies. It's really trying to listen to people. I have a whole bunch of very strong ideas of my own campaign by asking people to make personal increasingly. They are they're doing so so again. I have no illusions about the about how heavy the lift And had life not intervened. I would have come in more than a a year ago and I think you know that story but I came in when I did because it felt like This great talented field.

Well that said I mean if I had to pick one I do think that the hey this term Ai. But I do think like advanced analytic techniques are creating this ability to really anticipate customer are situations in customer need. So I'll give you an example like I think the fact is that banks to this day. Don't make a lot of money off their customers. Laziness right in terms of deposit pricing. There's a lot of lazy money sitting in DB and extremely low yielding savings accounts and that is responsible for a lot of net that interest margin at banks and it's actually a solvable problem. There's a company called flourish that I work with just personally. Who You you know there? It's a separate high-yield savings account and they have connectivity to my bag and threw their analytics. They sweep money out out every day as multiple times a day and sweet money back in and I'm just feeling extremely optimized in a good way of its yield them capturing and so yeah definitely kind of an early adopter on these things but you know that would even really tricky with Canada free gross and rough analytic techniques that existed five six seven years ago but that ability for that to be just never wrong always right ever more precise is it's happening really quickly.

"bain capital" Discussed on On Point with Tom Ashbrook | Podcasts
"We may be on the verge of another sexual revolution. And this one we tend to machines for companionship and sex objective is to be a perfect companion. How art official intelligence and robots are changing the landscape of love this week on hidden brain. This is on point magnitude Cromartie. We're talking this hour about how to measure the impact of impact investing, and I'm joined today by Mark Guenther. He's author of a four part series in the chronicle of philanthropy called good returns. It's all about impact investing. He's also a longtime writer for fortune magazine as well. Joining us now from Boston is governor develop Patrick, he's the former governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts term governor for Massachusetts. And since two thousand fifteen he's been managing director and co managing partner of Bain capital. Double impact the social investing wing of Bain capital. They focus on bringing financial returns alongside creating social and environmental impact develop. Patrick, welcome to on point. Thank you Magna. How you doing? I'm doing. Well, it's great to talk with you again governor Patrick with you. And it's great to listen to Mark on thirty. I've I've been reading his wonderful pieces. He's one of the most when the most thoughtful on this. Really terrific field. So you got a kind of a unique experience here as having been in the public sector and now in the private sector. And so first of all, I just I would love if you could give us an example of a recent deal or investment that you've done with being with Bain capital. Double impact that really sort of underlines what you're trying to accomplish. Now, we invested in a company actually here in Boston called Penn foster. It's been around a long time started as a correspondent school. But today, it provides online education to to people trying to reach their educational, and and and career goals they serve about one hundred and seventy thousand students year, mostly working people often marginalized people trying to lift themselves in their in their families through credited and unaccredited programs, including high school college career, workforce development solutions that kind of thing and. We were interested in Penn foster really as a way of trying to get at the middle skills issue, which is a challenge in Massachusetts in around the around the country, something I became very much exposed to when we were dealing with the with the economic collapse when I was in office, and we had I want to say, maybe at our peak one hundred seventy thousand people looking for work and about one hundred and twenty thousand open positions, and what employers were telling us Magna was that they had they they couldn't find people with the skills necessary for the jobs they had. And I think that's a problem. We're seeing all over the country and one that will continue to to exacerbate because they're folks many of them who have high school diplomas, but jobs that require more than that. But not necessarily a college degree. And so how through low cost very? Directed not the kind of train in pray solutions that you sometime in the training programs that that are available. We get solutions for people to to get it. Those opportunities is something that I've been interested in. And that's that's an example. Well, it's a terrific example, actually, a Patrick so so how how then is bane. I mean, look Bain is very good at doing those analytics, so how is it that they're measuring the the financial impact or gain from supporting Penn foster versus it's it's material or social impact. Sure. So let me give you if I may just a little context on what our fund is about what double impact is about. Because that that'll just you know, it'll give you a little color for for how Penn foster fits hours, the fun. That is dedicated to both a commercial rate of return and measurable, social or environmental good. And we've organized the funding. Into three sort of fee, Matic, verticals, health and wellness sustainability and what we're calling community building. And within health and wellness. We've been looking at Ed tech companies that that address either achievement gaps or skills gaps. And that's how we get interested in Penn foster when I say a commercial rate of return, I mean, the we underwrite to the same financial standards as as the large cap funds private equity funds here being capital, and that's not a value judgment about where others in impact investment. Choose to be because others do make decisions to invest in companies or an enterprises that have a concessionary or lower.
"bain capital" Discussed on Pod Save America
"I think he's also going to get shit for being seen as too pro Wall Street or having too many big donors versus the small dollar donors that were particularly attracted to Bernie and probably Harris again, I think the defending Bain capital in the middle of the twenty twelve election was a owns an odd choice. Obama was hammering Mitt Romney for his ties to Bain, and he jumped out in defended Bain, and I it sort of you know, to me had the that tone that you hear from a lot of Wall Street people where they feel aggrieved in attack, and it's like I couldn't fucking care less that you billionaire feel aggrieved and attack. I'm not accusing Booker of that. I'm just saying like it sounded like those voices you sometimes hear when you try to raise taxes on on Wall Street people. So these are things that he's gonna get questioned on you know, I think he will inspire a lot of people. In the process of. Yeah. I I will say that when he refused Donald Trump a racist. My eyes rolled so far back into my head. It's like all right, man. Like come on. I just don't think like I. Yeah. But but I don't I actually don't think it's that important. I understand what he's trying to say. I understand. I don't believe that Cory Booker lax and understanding of the context of Donald Trump's rings. The point. I was actually going to make I think is bigger problem is around issues related to Wall Street and corporate interests because you know, and it actually comes down to like this idea of a positive message. I think there's a shibboleth now for a proof that you're on the team cool that like that that people need to understand that they've heard a lot of Democrats say the right things around raining in corporate power raining insurance companies reining in Wall Street, but then when push comes to shove there's the question as to do they have the stomach for it. Like are they really in for this fight? And it's a fight that actually requires a little bit negative. You know, it does require a little bit of you know, spleen. And so I think Cory booker's biggest challenge as a candidate. It actually is connecting that positive vision that conversation around love with actually attacking some of the sources of problems in this country and being clear eyed. And honest and passionate about why you need to take those interest on yet. Look, I think there's there's two possibilities here. Right. His detractors would say one possibility is he has lived in New Jersey. There's a lot of people in New Jersey who work in the financial industry. There's a big pharmaceutical industry presence in New Jersey. And that he is too close with these interest because he has been a Senator from New Jersey. And that's why you post specifically opposed a drug reimportation from Canada Bill that he's gotten a lot of. And then the other possibility is he is one of those Democrats who believes in, you know, he says sometimes there are bad corporate actors we have to take on bad corporate actors, but I don't want to paint all business with with the same brush. Right. And you could be one of those Democrats now, I think the proof is in the wreck. He's got to talk about his record. Right. He took that he took a bad vote on pharmaceuticals. And then of course, this year he decided to support Bernie Sanders Bill to rein in prescription drug costs. Right. And so he's taking some good votes. Against financial companies. And but maybe he's been spend too much fundraising almost rates like he's going to his challenge is going to be sort of talking about his record and proving that he can take on powerful interests. When need be two things..

Which, is a big national. Attention because he potentially could be running for, president in twenty twenty first let's listen to him. Talk a little bit about this fund launch which would be probably the, way he'd. Raise money And and his work at Bain capital if we could all listen to cut four I'm having a terrific. Time in in this fun that we that we we live it's a fund that invests in companies in order to drive social. And environmental impact was part of this impact investing. Industry or trend one of my partners describes it as describes impact investing as the laboratory where capitalist work. To reform capitalism and I think we're doing a, lot of good aggregate trying to discern demonstrate that you don't have to trade return for impact and I think we're off to. A terrific start now I know when Mitt Romney was attacked for his association with. With, Bain capital in two thousand, twelve I know you didn't personally criticize pain back then but given the way the way that the, Democratic Party went after. Being during that race and the way that, Hillary Clinton faced so much criticism from the lab For her speeches to Goldman Sachs in two thousand sixteen did you have any reservations at all about joining, Bain after leaving the governor's mansion No first of all we don't have a mansion but thank you It's a metaphor I know Not. A metaphor Excuse, me many many longtime, friends at. Bain capital people I know to be highly on oval folks and Mitt Romney hasn't been. There for decades Decades now I am I describe myself as a capitalist I'm not a market fundamentalist I don't think markets solve. Every problem just the right way but I do believe, in oportunity I think I think we need an economy that is expanding and expanding out. So it reaches people on the margins not just up so it's it's good. For people who already have wealth and have an just want more and I think there's a right way. And a, wrong, way, to do that and, I think. The impact investing is incredibly interesting and exciting way to participate in in in growth capitalism So no I don't I don't I don't buy that So by. The way I'm course I'm no longer interested at all and his answer. About Bain. Attacker because it's Blake just get it right I don't I did that once in a like a month after I moved here in a statement for the press in my name or something out there, about about respond to a Romney debate presidents all boy.

Wall Street eyes more gains from Apple, its $1 trillion stock
"Paced financial tour of the global financial markets, the, top headlines and, strategy implications Alex tell us about apple this week Big news this week there was a race to witch comedy became the first trillion dollar company by market, cap? And. It was apple apple. Did that this week jump in, three and a half percent. On Wednesday after reporting some pretty good numbers well I know they. They requested a radio interview on it and pointed out. The entire value of the US stock market is approximately thirty trillion dollars publicly traded stocks right. Wow so Apple's one thirtieth now. The last time this happened but a warning sign here Cisco systems became two hundred and fifty billion, market cap circa nineteen ninety nine k. k. it was the, most popular investment they used to have, investment clubs when it was fun. To, buy stocks before the tech wreck And Cisco took them more than a decade and a, half to catch back. Up, to that price, it's just gonna take a lot of money to drive apple higher but also pointed out you know as apple overpriced it's eighteen times trailing earnings, less? Than. The s. and p.. Five hundred benchmark so it's probably, the best bargain out of. The fangs trade just if you had to pick yeah yeah I think I think I did see Cisco their total return. From two thousand one two today is minus three percent that right yeah that sounds about right That's, a long twenty years Eichel there yes and you know I believe that the trillion. Dollars is likely to be hit by, Amazon? Barring, a stumble right yeah Could? Be Like Eli musk and call his analyst boneheads and that set him back Tesla's Tesla's, catching up still. Make it they're making Yvonne's making pieces, this he he was nice and apologized and that, I'm sorry I think I think is senior investor relations officer took him to the side, and, said look bonehead You need to apologize to, your fan club. Yeah not only that you got some, convertible debt coming due early twenty nineteen you need, to stock price higher not lower there you go okay so if anybody's bonehead he's admitted, it, okay Dallas How much this a quiz question, again how much did your house go up on average here in North, Texas the Dallas metro, area. Year-over-year so as August of last year to this, year So you got to, we'll will we'll turn it into dollars here in the second but what, was what was the, appreciation. Of our houses generally five point five eight percent That's, slow down quite a bit that's so down quite a? Bit that's getting, the, trend right Yep nationwide. Still six and a half the. Dallas falling behind nationwide appreciation Yeah We've grown so tremendously that I think it's okay for a little. Break and, I I do think that ten year rates going up his temperature the the gain in housing, prices Tom Hanks still lives in that little house on the water there in, Seattle those that remember an arcane movie. Reference He owns a house. I don't know I mean he could I mean I'm sure. He's moved to. Better digs, since then What with Meg Ryan anyway so Meg Ryan I'm pretty sure so. Thirteen and, a half percent would have been sleepless in Seattle That doesn't make you sleepless that makes you happy that to turn it into. Financial planning terms at, three hundred thousand dollar house last year would be listed. This year for, close to three. Hundred twenty thousand that was my thought but that pace that pace The three-month. Annualised for Dallas though, fourteen percent so it's lumpy At that that was my conclusion from from the case, Schiller city of. Dallas, gave me, a bump higher than that but. Warwick's purposes well they were they were underpricing. Your house anyway so you go. To, go down in protest let me know how it goes yeah, I think I don't know that that. Battle. Is, worth, it but, some people do. It every year okay Well I I wonder I bet. On I. Think that was They gave me a. Big, start so I'm happy about that well if you come back, they might get upset and just say. Alex. I, think, we're just, gonna bump your. Value up even more That's a risk that okay They, can't do that but anyway contract signings to previously to purchase previously owned US homes rose for the, first? Time. In three, months right Yep. And point nine percent increase. So. Housing's not, dead yet, okay that's still you know you. Still got. That millennial generation they're starting they're starting, to think? About buying homes aren't. They And? Is he Sanchez our. Chief compliance, officer he he you know we were having our conference this week and he said what do you, what. Do. You think, is Warren Buffett. Says the market's not going. Up. And his, prediction was, a minus one and a half. Percent for. The s. and p. five hundred going, forward right And for an extended period but then he also, talked about the? Housing and I said you know it may it looks like it's just Dacre Shindo right in terms of the prices increase we've seen the massive price increases but it's not going down yet All right And Carlisle, group, they they're, they're? Famous. Right yeah They. Raised twelve point three billion in the second quarter forty percent increase. Carlo Ripa private equity money manager publicly traded actually so they make other. Revenue off of fees and that kind of thing. But that's a big number going to private equity the forty. Percent increase same year or Saint period last year. So it never, been so. Easy to raise money there's they're saying never will if your name's, Carlisle, and you're, the? Best I can see Bain capital's. Building from the window but there are a lot less quiet. There are a lot less vocal right that's right. Where they're they're, more behind. The scenes trying to get Romney elected okay Private, equity? Where will the money, go in our previous headline triangulate that with the real. Estate The group's credit group raise two billion. In the quarter real estate assets. Which included real estate Carlisle bought in about seven hundred million so, they are buying, real? Estate but, I, think the energy infrastructure is probably one of the destination just, two? Thoughts right I mean they're they're the biggest part of, that race. Was for buyout fund right so eighteen eighteen and a half billion going going there And so you'll see some of that You'll see some. Of that private public companies going private I think, hundred and fifty seven. Thousand new jobs bureau of labor statistics That. Was in the previous month, so those are nonfarm payrolls ADP private payroll they do an estimate. They said two hundred nineteen thousand both numbers are reasonably good unemployment, falling, to, three point nine, and the. Bureau of labor statistics, adding people back in at the last. Report we covered that saying oh well the jobs market. So good some people are saying I'm tired of, watching TV all day I want. To go work it's more if you get a good job it's, more, fun, it is more, fun yeah. Pay raises estimated four, percent year over year that pretty good That's good all right tesla an enigma within a puzzle Yeah, so, they they doubled their loss Okay And they burn less cash than. Expected so back in the late, nineties there is a valuation metric called how fast were they burning their, cash and if they're burning it slower than the other, guy then you should buy that. Stock we know how that. Ended Race. To pets.com zero okay right You know as long as they continue. To. Happen As long as they're able to, continue to, raise money though they'll they'll be around I. Think at some point you you got a. Price like you would a car company I'm not saying they won't ever get profitable I think there's a chance that they will They're they're pretty expensive yeah. Ford's at five times earnings but then the. Cars have you ever sat in the tesla It's it's amazing I mean That's it's an engineering marvel but in. This case You gotta make money Yeah we think you'd want to see him to. Make money sometime soon they They have said that they. Want, to expand globally and so they may get some big financing from. China Five Five billion dollar manufacturing plant near Shanghai and that that helps Put your, cash will, for a while isn't it you people will be you know people will work. Cheaper in China because they have to as opposed to California I think that's a It's a smart move but Trump's not gonna. Like it all right Now tell us you get to do. The cannabis update because, you and Andrew were. Successfully, trading cannabis stocks and, I was skeptical but I'm coming. Around okay When it comes to. Profit but us the, projection for the US. Market All right so u., s. market which is still not federally legal Is currently at six billion in sales and believes that. U. S retail sales can reach, twenty billion by twenty twenty two okay. So triple in four years triple and four years without Without. It. Being federally legal.
