A Bit Of Both: Most Employees Want A Hybrid Work Solution Every week new tensions crop up at companies β€” big and small β€” all around the world over one key question: what's the right balance between fully in-office and fully at-home for employees? I want to WFH (sometimes) We've summarized the conclusions of a great survey from Gallup in the chart above, and the conclusions are pretty straightforward β€” most people want a little bit of both. Pre-pandemic, just 8% of remote-capable jobs were actually done exclusively from home, a proportion that has jumped almost 5x, to 39%, as of February of this year. But interestingly, most employees surveyed β€” 59% to be exact β€” would actually prefer a hybrid working arrangement, which is more than the 32% that would like to be exclusively remote, and way ahead of the 9% that would like to be fully on-site.

The CEO- Worker Pay Gap Has Widened In The Last 50 Years Indeed, this updated chart above, using data from the EPI shows how CEO compensation has outstripped that of typical workers over the last 50+ years. From 1965-1970 the average CEO of a top company in the US earned 23x that of a typical worker. By 1990 that was 74x. In 2020 the average top CEO's actual, realized compensation was more than 350x that of a typical employee (the realized vs. granted difference is primarily down to stock market returns, as stock options and equity usually make up the majority of CEO compensation deals).

CEO Pay In The US, Visualized The median pay package for the CEOs of America's largest public companies rose an inflation-busting 12% last year according to analysis of more than 400 companies from the Wall Street Journal, with a typical CEO making a crisp $14.7m β€” and 9 CEO's raking in packages worth more than $50m last year. The data comes amidst a number of shareholder rebukes of CEO packages. Yesterday, JPMorgan shareholders voted against Jamie Dimon's pay, with only 31% supportive of a $50m one-off payment to the bank's CEO. Where shareholders voted against a $178m payout to CEO Pat Gelsinger, and last week Amazon shareholders were also advised to vote against the packages of a number of top execs, including CEO Andy Jassy. Elon Musk, who this week has been Tweeting to complain about Twitter's fake users, is a notable exception on CEO pay, with Tesla reporting no pay to Musk again after awarding him a record 2018 package that was valued at $2.3 billion at the time.

The Baby Formula Storage The US is in the middle of a baby formula shortage. Real-time data from Datasembly, which we've recreated in the chart above, shows that the percentage of baby formula that was out-of-stock hit 43% nationwide, way up on the more usual range of 2-8%. A blend of manufacturing issues, distribution issues and product recalls β€” most recently from Abbott Laboratories amidst reports of infant illness from bacterial infections β€” have caused the shortages. Understandably, parents have been trying to get around the shortages. Some have reported stockpiling formula and Google searches for "how to make baby formula" have risen more than 1,000%, despite most doctors warning against homemade formula. Around 25% of parents breastfeed their children until they are at least 6 months old, which means that the vast majority of parents rely on formula to varying extents.

Finland's Population Is Now Strongly In Favour Of Joining NATO Leaders of Finland announced yesterday that they were in favor of rapidly applying to join NATO, the defense alliance that counts 30 members including the US, UK, France and Germany. That announcement is reflective of a change in Finland's national mood since Russia invaded Ukraine. As recently as the end of February a poll found that only just over half of all Finns were in favor of joining the military alliance. Just over two months later, that proportion has risen to 76%, while the number opposed to joining the alliance has fallen from 28% to 12%. The announcement from Finland, with Sweden also looking at potentially joining, has frustrated officials in Russia who have long warned against NATO expansion. Because of their 800-mile border with Russia, if Finland does join the alliance it will more than double NATO's border with Russia (map here).

Things Could Still Get A Lot Worse For Tech Stocks Usually when the share price of a well-known tech company falls more than 10% it's a perfect story for us to do a chart on. But in the last few weeks we've been overwhelmed, as almost every single day multiple major household names have been taking double-digit losses. We highlighted some of the worst affected last week β€” many of which have continued their slide this week. We've combed through 50 years of daily data on the NASDAQ Composite Index, a tech-heavy index comprised of more than 2,500 companies, to get some perspective on how bad this crash has been... and how bad it could get. So far the NASDAQ is down 29% from its previous peak. That puts it in bear market territory, but it isn't even close to the 75-80% drop that was seen during the bursting of the dotcom bubble in 2000 or the depths of the Global Financial Crisis of 2008/09.

The Rise & Fall Of The iPod In October 2001 Apple released the iPod. Its iconic scroll wheel and the slogan "1,000 songs in your pocket" were an instant hit, and within few years the world of music was changed forever. The iPod, and other MP3 players, offered an alternative to the mostly-linear way that albums used to be listened to on CD or vinyl β€” and they were just so much more convenient. "1,000 songs in your pocket" was a powerful slogan that quickly became 2,000, then 4,000 and 16,000 as storage capacity expanded. The fact that most people only had a few hundred songs to fill their iPods with was irrelevant. Nothing lasts forever in tech and this week Apple announced it was going to discontinue the product line, marking the official end of the iPod era β€” which at its peak saw Apple shift more than 50 million iPods every year. Indeed, before the rise of the iPhone the iPod was the company's crown jewel alongside the Mac β€” in 2006 the iPod was roughly 40% of Apple's revenue.

Russia Has Stepped Up The Number Of Cyberattack In Ukraine Russia's on-the-ground invasion of Ukraine has been more aggressive than many expected, and now it seems to be ramping up its cyberattack A new report from Microsoft, reported on by The Economist, gives details of 237 substantial cyberattacks that Russian agents have launched against Ukrainian assets. The report shows that the number of attacks detected has increased since the invasion, but also that Russia's on-the-ground operations and its cyberattacks seem to be coordinated. A cyberattack against a major broadcasting company on March 1st was followed by a missile strike against TV tower in Kyiv. During the siege of Mariupol some Ukrainians received a fake email from a Russian actor "masquerading as a Mariupol resident and falsely accusing Ukraine’s government of β€œabandoning” Ukrainian citizens" and the day after a nuclear power company was hacked, the Russian army took over the country's largest nuclear power station.

Selling Games Just Isn't Enough Anymore: The Economics Of EA EA didn't want to fork over an increasingly large sum for the FIFA license, hence the company will be hoping that gamers look through the name change and keep buying copies of the game β€” although these days actual game sales is not really where EA makes its dough. Indeed, EA β€” like many of its competitors β€” makes the majority of its revenue, more than 71%, from what it calls "Live Services". In the FIFA series those sales come mostly through EA's "Ultimate Team" β€” a format which sees players compete against others. The best players in the world, think Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, are the rarest β€” but you can swing the odds of getting those players in your favor by splurging real cash, which millions of people do. EA hasn't disclosed the numbers for its most recent fiscal year, but in the year before Ultimate Team across its games was worth a $1.6 billion in revenue.

State Of The Union: 4 Economic Indicators We're Watching The US economy is in an unusual state, and keeping track of the latest data isn't easy, so here are 4 key trends we're watching: Mortgage rates: The average 30-year fixed rate hit 5.3% this week, the highest since 2009. Higher borrowing costs could cool the US housing market β€” where typical prices have jumped 15% in the last year. Millions of quitters: More Americans are saying "I quit" than ever before, with a record 4.5 million Americans leaving their jobs in March. Unemployment: With a record 11.5 million jobs open, Americans looking for work are generally finding it β€” with the unemployment rate hovering near a record low of 3.6%. Inflation: Monetary stimulus from the pandemic, supply chain shortages and the growing energy crisis have all contributed to inflation hitting 8.5% year-on-year.

Billions Of Dollars Are Now Lost To Internet Crime Every Year Recently reported internet crimes caused more than $6.9 billion worth of losses, according to a report by the FBI β€” a trend that seems likely to only go one way over the coming few years. For many of us the most obvious single point of cyber security failure is our logins. Anyone with even a modest internet presence likely has tens, if not hundreds, of online logins β€” and each one needs a password β€” which a majority of people recycle across multiple sites. Passwords aren't famously secure, with weak credentials accounting for a majority of data breaches, and big tech want to do something about that. Yesterday Apple, Google & Microsoft jointly announced support for a passwordless sign-in standard from the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium. That could mean the ability to sign into a platform using a fingerprint, face scan or one single PIN β€” regardless of what device or browser you're on.

A typical Chick-fil-A (outside of a mall location), turns over more than $8 million a year (source), which is a staggering amount on its own β€” and more than any other major fast food chain β€” but gets even more staggering when you remember that those sales are crammed into just 6 days a week. As tradition has long dictated at Chick-fil-A, all of its restaurants are closed on Sundays. Their business model deserves a credit. Chick-fil-A has a fairly unique franchise system β€” the company only lets owners own one franchise location.

Data and estimates from the IEA show how global energy-related emissions in 2020 had fallen by a record amount as the pandemic ground our global economy to a halt. Unfortunately this year the news isn't quite as optimistic β€” the same data shows a bounce back in net global energy-related emissions for last year that was more than equal to the drop from 2020.

Sounds like a simple (and annoying) notification β€” but the kicker is that you only have 2 minutes to do so. The idea is that the spontaneity removes the ability for users to "airbrush" their life. Having a dull lunch? Take a photo of that. Doing homework? That's fine. On a long car journey? Snap a pic.

Trading volumes in Bored Apes, and other high profile projects, have stayed elevated, with ~$15m worth of Bored Apes changing hands per day in April.

The power of modern smartphones is nothing short of mindblowing β€” but with real risks to having unrestricted access to one the question for many parents is: when is the right age to give one to my child? Data from Common Sense Media shows that the majority of American parents believe that the answer to that question is around the ages of 12-13. Indeed, 71% of children aged 12 that were surveyed last year said that they owned their own smartphone, significantly up on the 41% that had answered the same way back in 2015. Perhaps even more surprising was that almost one-third of 8-year-olds also reported having a smartphone.Β

The result was that celebrities, influencers and brands could just put one link in their bio, which itself would then have multiple links to whatever they wanted. That simple product, which admittedly has evolved, is now worth $1.3 billion. Sometimes the really simple ideas are the best.

With complete bans on major social media platforms like Facebook, and many more tech companies voluntarily withdrawing services, Russia is at risk of creating a "splinternet" according to writers at MIT. To get by the increasing number of internet restrictions, many Russians have turned to virtual private networks (VPNs), which offer an encrypted connection over the internet. By re-routing traffic through other servers, your physical location, and other data about your browsing habits, can stay hidden. 5 or 6 years ago you might have tried to trick Netflix into thinking you were in a different country by using a VPN to access the different movies and shows in that country.

As we wrote last year, BuzzFeed isn't just doing outrageous clickbait or articles these days. They've also invested millions in BuzzFeed News - by far its most serious journalism project - and achieved impressive results, including winning the coveted Pulitzer Prize. Unfortunately, BuzzFeed News is burning through about $10 million a year, leading some investors, understandably more concerned about the bottom line, to call for the entire division to be shut down. So far, CEO Jonah Peretti refuses to go that far, but on Tuesday the company announced it was cutting the division, including the departure of its editor-in-chief.Β

That has meant that, despite growing its revenue more than 13x from 2014 to 2021, Alibaba's share price found itself below its IPO price recently.

But when it comes to all-electric, Tesla is still a decent way out in front, although there are a few ways to think about the same numbers. On one hand it's easy to argue that Tesla is miles ahead, shipping more than double the number of all-electric vehicles that VW Group managed in 2021. On the other hand, you could argue that VW Group's 453k deliveries in 2021 is close to Tesla's 500k effort from 2020, suggesting that the German giant is only 12-15 months behind Tesla's pace, despite starting later.

Any person with a confirmed infection used to be hospitalized in Hong Kong, in an attempt to break the chain of transmission β€” even if that person was asymptomatic. That strict policy worked in the early pandemic, but seems to have broken down in the face of the highly transmissible omicron variant. Since the end of February, Hong Kong has over 4,000 confirmed deaths β€” which relative to its population is significantly worse than the US or Europe ever experienced.

But other data shows that there was a record low supply of houses for sale, with just 860,000 previously owned homes on the market last month. Demand might fall in the future, supply already has.

One Irish man even got a QR code inked on his arm - a personal link to whatever he wants it to be. But QR codes are hardly a new technology. QR codes are almost 28 years old, invented by Japanese automotive company Denso Wave back in 1994 to streamline their manufacturing process. Their adoption was slow in the West before the pandemic, but they've long been used in Asia. In China, there's a QR code for just about everything.

That number was ahead of expectations, and sent DoorDash's share price higher, but it still wasn't enough to make a net profit, instead notching a $155m loss. That's not a surprise to anyone familiar with the industry. Research from McKinsey suggests the economics of food delivery are still challenging for everyone involved – delivery companies, drivers and restaurants. Many of the restaurants on aggregator platforms may actually be losing money (70c) on an average order. Drivers are making ~$9 per order including tip before considering their own expenses, and the platforms are squeezing out just a 3-4% margin.

As shown above, before Russia's annexation of Crimea β€” the peninsula in the south β€” Ukrainian public opinion towards Russia was overwhelmingly positive. Respondents to surveys from the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology showed that more than 80% of Ukrainians polled had mostly positive views towards Russia. After the annexation that figure dropped dramatically, and hadn't recovered even prior to Russia's latest invasion. Not every region of Ukraine feels the same. Residents of western Ukraine are a lot less likely to have a positive view of Russia (21% of respondents) than their counterparts in the east β€” where 53% had a positive view.

In 2020 Russia accounted for more than 40% of all of the European Union's gas imports, and more than one-quarter of the petroleum oil imports. That dependence may impact the willingness of certain European countries to impose harsher sanctions on Russia, for fear of retaliation. Of the larger economies, most exposed are Hungary, Czech Republic, Italy and Germany β€” each of which relies on Russian gas significantly.

The Russian MOEX index, which tracks 43 of Russia's biggest public companies, fell by one-third β€” by far the biggest one-day fall in the country's history. The scale of that move suggests that even investors thought Putin was still unlikely to invade despite the obvious troop build-up. Elsewhere, oil prices spiked and Russia's currency β€” the Ruble β€” slid to record lows against both the US Dollar and Euro. In recent days few words have been used as much as "sanctions". As one of the easiest ways to deter Russia, without risking escalation, the list of announced sanctions has been getting longer and longer. The hardest hitting sanctions would be to boycott Russian gas or oil exports, or cut them out of key financial infrastructure like SWIFT.

Alphabet reported quarterly revenue of about $75bn, which is up about 32% on this time last year, with just about every single segment firing on all cylinders. YouTube ad revenue was up a healthy 25%, but it was nothing on Alphabet's main property, Google Search, which clocked in a record $43bn of quarterly revenue, growing 36% on last year. Even better than that was Google's Cloud biz, which competes with Microsoft's Azure and Amazon's AWS, it notched revenue that was up 45% on last year. Investors gave Google a big thumbs up, with shares rising 7% this morning. The company also announced a 20-to-1 stock split, presumably to make shares more affordable for retail investors.

For their efforts, each pocketed about $2.06m USD, for a little over 2 weeks of work (and a lifetime of dedication to tennis). Those payouts, which grab the headlines, mask the reality of playing professional tennis for those not fortunate enough to be the best of the best. The 500th highest-earning male tennis player has brought in $1.6m in their career. But if you consider the constant travel, coaching and other costs over a 10-15 year career, it likely translates into a modest earning, without other income. In the female game that 500th player only won $876k. But if you're the 1500th best ever male player - you get $207k in lifetime. Female? Just $96k.

The NYTimes also reported that it hit 10 million total subscribers. For the NYTimes, buying Wordle makes a lot of sense. For the past few years, the newspaper has been trying to diversify its revenues away from just its "core news" product. Games (mostly word-based), a dedicated cooking section and audio stories have formed the bulk of its "stuff-that-isn't-news" segment, which has grown into a $22m-a-quarter business, more than 7x where it was just a few years ago. If that business was a scrappy start-up, it would almost certainly be a unicorn in today's market. Wordle will initially remain free to new and existing players... the key word is "initially".

And Warren Buffett has been right about Apple. Recently the tech giant produced another staggering set of results, reporting more than $123bn of revenue for a single quarter. That works out to about $1.36bn per day, $57 million an hour or about $945,000 of sales every single minute. About 15% of that revenue came from Apple's Services division β€” the App Store, Apple Pay, Apple Music, Apple TV, the iCloud and more. That business has grown steadily, halting briefly during the pandemic last year, before its upward march towards ~$20bn of quarterly revenue. For some context on just how big that is, it's more than 2x what Netflix makes per quarter ($8bn), and about 15x what Twitter makes ($1.3bn).

The 100,000+ Russian troops near the Ukrainian border offer a threat of invasion that now rests heavily on the minds of ordinary Ukrainian citizens. One of the core issues that's ignited this tension is NATO, a military alliance of 30 countries including the US, UK, France, Italy and Germany that promises to defend any member that comes under attack. In December Russia wanted assurances that NATO would limit the resources and troops that it massed in eastern Europe, including a ban on Ukraine ever formally joining the alliance. It's hard to overstate NATO's influence in geopolitics. According to data from SIPRI, members of NATO account for more than 57% of total global military spending, with the US alone accounting for 40% in the world.

With a CEO that loves to stir the pot on Twitter, and ambitious plans to rule the world of electric vehicles (EVs) Tesla has built an army of advocates, and detractors. In years gone by one of the biggest points of criticism was Tesla's constant losses. Quarter after quarter, Tesla made billions of dollars of losses β€” taking on more debt, or selling more shares, to fund its growth habit. Those criticisms are less valid today, as Tesla reported this week that it had made more than $6.5bn from its operations in 2021, a record high. That number was well received, helping to paper over the ongoing supply chain issues that Tesla also announced, which are set to see plans for new vehicles (like the Cybertruck) get put on hold until 2023 at the earliest.
