The Stingy News Weekly (05/28/2018)
Stingy News Flash
You might have noticed the lack of the Dow and S&P/TSX 60 screens in the weekly. I've been having trouble sourcing reliable data. But I'll continue to consider alternates over the next few weeks.
What happened at GE?
"Few corporate meltdowns have been as swift and dramatic as General Electric's over the past 18 months - but the problems started long before that." [Management]
The reporter who took down a unicorn
"How John Carreyrou battled corporate surveillance and intimidation to expose a multibillion-dollar Silicon Valley start-up as a fraud." [Crime]
Money really isn't everything
"Your mother was right: Money isn't everything. New research that examines levels of life satisfaction across more than 1,200 Canadian neighbourhoods shows that big pay cheques don't have much to say about the overall sense of happiness in a community. What matters more are factors such as affordable homes, short commuting times and - most important - a sense of community belonging. In general, rural residents are happier than their urban counterparts, despite lower incomes" [Behaviour]
Attention and low volatility
"The bottom line is that investors do not need to invest in low-volatility stocks (which are now much more highly priced) to exploit the low-volatility anomaly. The reason is that it's mostly about the very poor performance of high-volatility stocks. And the poor performance of high-volatility stocks can be avoided simply by screening out stocks with the negative characteristics of high idiosyncratic volatility, high skewness and low prices."
