Take advantage of inefficient markets Howard Smith : Markets aren't always efficient, and that's how investors can gain an advantage.

A mysterious preview has hit the web for something called “Knights Of Ren: A Star Wars Story.” The short video appears to be a series, movie or video game centered around the followers of Kylo Ren, but nobody seems to know for sure. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) In fact, Forbes and BroBible both admitted that there’s no clear indication of what’s going on. It appears like the trailer, which looks like it was filmed off a screen, kind of dropped out of thin air. Give it a watch below. This is pretty strange, right? It’s done at an incredibly high professional level, but there’s nobody online who knows where it’s from or what it’s for. Is it an elaborate hoax? It’s possible, but I’d argue that it’s unlikely. It seems way too well done. The Knights of Ren were an enclave of masked Force-sensitive warriors that adhered to the ways of the Ren, a religious philosophy epitomized by the lightsaber.

- A + A (Jan 17): Analysts are denouncing Unilever Plc’s 50 billion pound (US$68 billion) offer for GlaxoSmithKline Plc’s consumer health business in unusually strong words. In a barrage of Monday morning notes, analysts criticized Unilever for pursuing the deal, saying it doesn’t make sense and would come at an eye-watering valuation. Consumer health isn’t a high-growth industry and Unilever has a bad track record for big deals, said Bruno Monteyne at Bernstein. “We can’t imagine many things that would unnerve us more about Unilever than acquiring GSK consumer health,” wrote James Edwardes Jones at RBC Capital Markets in a note titled “Please Don’t.” Unilever has no overlap with two-thirds of Glaxo’s consumer health business and little experience in regulatory issues for medical and clinical products, said Edwardes Jones at RBC. “We had been considering whether the time was ripe to abandon our underperform rating,” he added. “We’re not any more.” Investors … [Read more...] about ‘Please don’t:’ analysts scorn Unilever’s takeover ambitions
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin The fact that we are in the grip of a global energy crisis is now beyond doubt. In the UK there are a slew of energy businesses going into administration, and pleas for government bailouts for energy intensive manufacturers. In the domestic economy, there are spiralling numbers of old people who, having survived Covid-19, are forecast to perish unless the winter is exceptionally mild. In recent months, France has seen some of its fastest growing green energy suppliers lose customers at a rapid rate, as the green premium looks increasingly unaffordable. Hydroption, a supplier of low carbon electricity, has been placed under judicial administration after failing to pay its suppliers and debts. India has suffered too, with shortages of coal in the second half of 2021 leading to outages and curbs imposed on energy hungry industries. In China, companies in the industrial heartlands have been told to limit consumption, and … [Read more...] about Will The Energy Crisis Help Clean-Up Bitcoin?
