#MasayoshiSon says China's crackdown on #Alibaba is nothing different than antitrust regulations in US or UK…

By @SanchDash
@SanchDash #MasayoshiSon, the founder and CEO of #SoftBank, and a long-time friend of #Alibaba founder #JackMa, said that the Chinese crackdown on Alibaba is the same as anti-trust regulations that have existed since a long time in the US or European countries.

More than 3 years ago, @ScheckWSJ & I began reporting on Saudi Arabia's bold economic changes under King Salman & his son Mohammed bin Salman. Today is publication day for BLOOD AND OIL, our book about MBS's rise to power & the storm of activity during his first 5 years in power Image
MBS's ascent is important because all signs point to him becoming the king of Saudi Arabia at a young age, setting him up to be in power for decades. He is also pushing his country toward rapid, radical change with regards to social practices, religion, and the economy
He's unlike anyone in #Saudi history, a young, technology-obsessed, business-focused ruler with an obsessive work schedule and attention to detail. He's also shown himself to be thin-skinned, brutal with dissidents and ruthless with his own family.

#swissbank #softbank #boj #norgesbank are large buyers of these stocks

Apple first reached a $1 trillion market cap on Aug. 2, 2018. It didn't take long for other tech giants Amazon, Microsoft and Alphabet to match Apple's $1 trillion market cap.
All of Apple’s second $1 trillion came in the past 21 weeks...
while the global economy shrank faster than ever before in the coronavirus pandemic.
Investors have started seeing Apple's business less like other hardware makers and more like a software company, as indicated by Apple's quickly rising price-earnings ratio, which is now over 33

#SoftBank is projecting losses worth $24 billion for 2019 fiscal. The Japanese technology company attributed the losses on investments made through its #VisionFund..
We just can't get around our head why would #VisionFund invest in traditional Real Estate companies like
Especially Real Estate companies with no USP in the long run. No wonder WeWork and Oyo are among the main contributors for the Funds losses. (3/3)
