After Google, Walmart is reportedly building a game streaming service

USgamer reports that retail giant Walmart is working on a game streaming service, hopping on the now-heavily-burdened bandwagon that includes Google, Nvidia, Microsoft, Amazon, and Sony.

These ad execs have a venture fund they’d like to sell you

Mike Duda comes from the world of advertising. In fact, he spent 13 years at the renowned ad agency Deutsch, becoming the youngest partner in the company’s history until another creative, Brent Vartan, came along and stole the title. Little wonder that in 2010, when Duda struck out on his own to create Bullish (formerly known as Consigliere Brand Capital), he stole Vartan, later making him the firm’s second managing partner. It isn’t that the two wanted to outgun their former employer exactly. I...

From Betsy DeVos to Rupert Murdoch, to the Walton family, here are the investors that lost hundreds of millions investing in Theranos

Going into summer 2018, the blood-testing startup Theranos was running low on cash. In March, the SEC charged Theranos and its founder Elizabeth Holmes with fraud, alleging they had made false statements and misled investors while raising $700 million. In June, the Department of Justice charged Holmes and former Theranos president Sunny Balwani with wire fraud. By September 2018, Theranos — which at one point had a $9 billion valuation — officially shut down.  Theranos investors, which includ...

Self-insurer Walmart flies its sick employees to out-of-state specialists to avoid local price-gougers

Walmart self-insures its workforce, rather than relying on an outside insurer like Cigna or Blue Cross; this means that it gets to make judgment calls that other firms cannot, and that has led the retail giant to a pretty weird place: for certain procedures that it believes to be overused by local hospitals, it flies its employees (even front-line, low-waged employees) to see the nation's top specialists in out-of-state facilities where they receive "concierge, white-glove care that was reserve...

I've talked to loads of hedge funds about their performance woes and there's one thing they have in common. Here's why Excel doesn't work anymore for picking stocks.

Junta Nakai has spent his career on Wall Street and in financial technology.  In this op-ed, Nakai argues that Microsoft Excel, which has been used by the investment community for years, can no longer be the only tool used for stock-picking.  The explosion of alternative data in particular has pushed stock analysis beyond what Excel is capable of.  Most investors are equipped for megabytes. Winners are equipped for terabytes. The vast majority of institutional investors today use Microsoft Ex...
