The IPO market is heating up again, but it won’t change how fast companies go public

It’s been an exciting couple of months for startup employees and public market shareholders alike, as a growing number of brands that have talked about going public for some time are finally marching out the door and, on the whole, receiving enthusiastic receptions. Lyft, Zoom, PagerDuty, and Pinterest all priced above their marketed ranges in splashy public offerings. Uber is meanwhile veering toward what’s expected to be the biggest IPO in years by seeking what’s rumored to be a $100 billion v...

Free Downgrade turns Ableton Live into lo-fi wobbly vaporwave tape

Fidelity? High-quality sound? No – degradation! And if you don’t have a ragged VHS deck or cassette Walkman handy, these free effects racks in Ableton Live will sort you out. Downgrade is the work of Tom Cosm, long-time Ableton guru. There are five effects: Fluffer Corrupt Hiss Morph Flutter — plus if you give him literally US$1 or more (you cheapskate), you get an additional Stutter rack. Basically, you get loads of controls for manipulating downsampling, tape effects, saturation, distorti...

Investing In Stocks

Buying stocks for the first time can feel like playing a new sport. You may feel uncertain. You may question the wisdom of getting involved. The fees may seem confusing or too steep. With sports as with stocks, some knowledge, some practice, and some solid coaching can help you stay in the game. And the stock market may be the biggest playing field of all — it can encompass the entire global economy. What Are Stocks and How Do They Work For at least 500 years, stocks have been a vehicle for in...

BNY Mellon's head of fintech partnerships explains how working to secure crypto isn't much different from holding gold bars

As the 'concept of money' evolves, custodian banks like 234-year-old BNY Mellon are changing in tandem, Lucien Foster, the firm's head of fintech partnerships, said in a recent Business Insider interview.  The banks used to store gold, money, paper stock certificates, and other valuables in large vaults. Now, with the advent of cryptocurrency, Foster explains how they're catching up to become custodians for a new valuable asset.  Foster was recently listed as one of Business Insider's 100 Peop...

‘High Fidelity’ TV Series Breaks Up With Disney+, Climbs Into Bed With Hulu

Looks like that High Fidelity TV series originally planned for Disney+ has found a new main squeeze. The series, based on the 2000 comedy starring John Cusack, will now air on Hulu. Disney has a controlling stake in Hulu, so they win either way. The reasoning behind the move? Disney+ is meant to be a more family friendly streaming service, and the High Fidelity TV show is turning out to be more R-rated than Disney anticipated. Deadline has the news about the High Fidelity TV show’s jump from...

HOA Homefront: Selecting a management company — the contract

The previous HOA Homefront column discussed choices in association management. If the association decides to hire a management firm to provide service, the management contract should be an important point of focus for the board. Price is not everything: Hiring a management firm solely on price is a mistake.  Associations may discover “you get what you pay for.” Factors affecting the fee are: Level of service desired. Workload or the number of accounts the manager handles. Quality of personnel –...

Fidelity Commission-Free ETF List Review (Updated 2019)

ETFs are surpassing mutual funds as the standard building blocks of stock and bond portfolios. Therefore, I wanted to take a closer look at the commission-free ETF lists from the major brokers. Unfortunately, the marketing often focuses on quantity instead of quality. Who cares if they offer 500+ ETFs, if I only need six good ones? Here’s are the factors that I think really matter: Total Assets. This is a measure of popularity and reputation. A more popular ETF will have a smaller bid/...

A crypto manager lays out the market improvements to the currency and says 2019 will be a year to watch

In this op-ed, Kyle Samani, a co-founder and managing partner at Multicoin Capital, says that a lthough crypto markets underperformed in 2018, the pace of underlying development activity has accelerated dramatically. Most of the crypto-infrastructure-building activity that took place in 2017 was unknown to most, but we started to see the fruits of those labors in 2018 and can expect quite a bit more in 2019. As infrastructure improves, more capital will move into crypto, spreads will tighten...

Startups Weekly: Lyft’s S-1, cash for fertility startups and litigious VCs

Startups reporters everywhere rejoiced Friday morning when the first unicorn S-1 of 2019 emerged from under lock and key for us all to unpack, analyze and enjoy. The TechCrunch office, at least Megan Rose Dickey’s and my corner, was buzzing with excitement, and Crunchbase News editor-in-chief, (my Equity co-host), apparently had to make himself a cup of Earl Grey tea to calm down post-S-1 deep dive.

Radio: Adjust your dials, LA: Here’s what might be the best station in the country

My wife Jean and I took a trip out to Grinnell, Iowa to see the Midwest Conference Championships for collegiate swimming and diving. No, it wasn’t just to visit the snow. My son was competing in the event, and it was the only meet we were able to attend this season. While there, we sampled the local radio stations that could be received in the area. They had an Alt 106.3, just like here and I am sure owned by iHeart, just like our local Alt 98.7. Even had the Woody Show. Boring. I don’t want to ...

Pre-IPO companies like Uber and Airbnb could 'test the waters' with investors sooner under new SEC proposal

The Securities and Exchange Commission is taking new steps to help pre-IPO companies like Uber and Airbnb get feedback from institutional investors. A new rule proposed Tuesday would let larger private companies consult with institutional investors before filing IPO paperwork with the SEC. Currently, the rules let emerging growth companies talk with such investors about pricing and demand.
