The investments of the Foundation Trust are managed by an outside team

The sharing economy is in the hot seat as Airbnb heads to the public market

On Nov. 16, Airbnb filed its S-1 registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission, setting the stage for a much-anticipated initial public offering.

Firms whose return on invested capital exceeds their weighted average cost of capital will enhance value as sales grow

The search for profitable investment opportunities on Wall Street - equities that have the potential to beat market averages - begins with a simple question for me: what do these publicly-traded firms do for investors?

Another important question to consider is whether to allocate money in different business opportunities, i.e. coffee-shops, burger chains, electric car manufacturing, retail stores, electronic trade, software development, etc., or to be more concentrated. Rather than buying stocks, investors could also buy stock or bond ETFs, in which shareholders or corporate debt holders hand their money to managers of different firms to invest it for them.

The ride-sharing companies have a serious problem with their business model

Uber Technologies Inc. (UBER) and Lyft Inc. (LYFT) are textbook cases of good companies that make bad investments.

They are good companies because they offer great services to consumers. Their apps and network of drivers make riding around cities easy and efficient.

They are bad investments because they cannot deliver superior returns on Wall Street. Returns that beat major market averages, that is.

Since they went public, the two companies have reported a stream of losses, including the one Uber delivered on Thursday.

Uber and Lyft are young companies. Therefore, Wall Street should focus on revenue growth, not earnings.

We became extremely bearish on energy in 2011. At the time, we saw interest in Seattle for hybrid and electric cars

We became extremely bearish on energy in 2011. At the time, we saw interest in Seattle for hybrid and electric cars. This convinced us that 10% of the cars on the road nationwide might be hybrid and electric by 2020. In actuality, only 2% of total unit sales in the U.S. were electric vehicles over the last 10 years. We also felt back then that the enthusiasm among investors for emerging markets and China was overblown and would cause oil demand forecasts to fall short of expectations.

It turns out we were wrong, because we were too early in

One sign of a good stock is rapid revenue growth

One sign of a good stock is rapid revenue growth.

Sure, profits are what ultimately count. But you can’t grow profits for long unless revenue is growing too.

Right now, some investors are chasing companies with fast revenue growth but scant earnings or none – the likes of Uber Technologies Inc. (UBER) and Tesla Inc. (TSLA). I’m not about to jump on that bandwagon.

I prefer companies with a history of profitability, and with a stock selling for a reasonable multiple of earnings.

Today I will highlight a few stocks that have shown revenue growth of 15% or more in

The all-stock acquisition will catapult Uber Eats to second place in US food delivery

On Monday morning, Uber Technologies Inc. (UBER) announced that its board of directors has agreed to buy one of its rivals in the meal delivery space, Postmates, in an all-stock transaction valued at approximately $2.65 billion (according to current market values).

Why is a car manufacturer getting a highly absurd valuation?

Tesla Inc. (TSLA) dethroned Toyota (TM) as the most valuable car company in the world this past week. Shares of the Palo Alto, California-based carmaker have almost doubled so far this year despite the ongoing pandemic, while its peers stumbled and had to cut their dividends to preserve cash flow. Is it still justifiable to value Tesla as a car manufacturer at this point?

On Thursday, Tesla registered a market capitalization of $224 billion, while Japan's Toyota ended up with $204 billion. On the other hand, Detroit-based auto manufacturers Ford (F) and General Motors (GM) together were valued at $60
