• CNA Analyst Brings Four Decades of Experience to U.S. Pacific Command

    For 40 years, CNA field representative Bill Morgan's many jobs have taken him to Bangladesh, Japan (twice), and now Hawaii. Throughout the decades, he's lent his analytical hand in Desert Shield, Desert Storm, to the Marines and the Navy. With so many accomplishments, it's easy to understand why, today, he assists the admiral of the U.S. Pacific Command.

Subscribe to Hidden Forces Here: http://www.hiddenforcespod.com/ In this Market Forces segment of the Hidden Forces podcast, Demetri Kofinas speaks with transportation industry veteran and Uber analyst, Hubert Horan. Demetri and Hubert’s discussion centers on the ridesharing company Uber, which has received a great deal of negative press in recent months. Stories continue to surface dealing with what is seen by many as a culture of intimidation at the company. Uber has built up a reputation for using heavy-handed tactics in dealing with the press and local governments, and the behavior of its CEO Travis Kalanick has come severely into question. On February 19th, 2017, former Uber engineer Susan J. Fowler, published a post about her experience of sexual harassment by Uber executives. The post triggered Uber’s board of directors to hire the law firm of Eric Holder (Covington & Burling) to conduct an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment and discrimination. The findings were released on June 13th, upon which Uber announced that CEO Travis Kalanick would be taking a temporary leave of absence, along with the dismissal of his closest confidant, SVP Emil Michael. There is yet no word on when or if, Travis Kalanick, will return. Uber has lost its President of Ridesharing (nominal #2 position at the company), the CFO, the President of its Asia-Pacific operations, the SVP of Engineering, the VPs of Public Policy/Communications, Product Growth and Mapping development and the Head of Driverless Car Development. It has been unable to fill its COO position, vacant since March. You can find a complete list of every Uber executive who has left the company in 2017 here. The number of executives who have left the company in recent months may be less a reflection of cultural differences, and more one of finances. Specifically, the extremely ugly financial picture that Uber’s financial statements expose. As the most highly valued startup in the world, Uber has a pre-IPO valuation of $69 billion dollars built off of $13 billion dollars raised from multiple rounds of private financing. This does not include debt accumulated by the company, which when combined with equity financing has brought the number up to at least $15 billion dollars as of this time last year. In the year ending September 2015, Uber registered GAAP losses of $2Bn on revenue of $1.4Bn (this is a negative 143% margin). Its 2016 GAAP losses exceeded $3Bn, according to Hubert Horan’s estimates, and at least $2.8Bn by the company’s own figures. This comes despite the sale of Uber’s China business to domestic rival Didi Chuxing. By comparison to other tech industry giants like Amazon and Google, Uber seems almost toxic. For example, it has raised 1,600 times as much capital, pre-IPO, as Amazon did before it went public in 1997. Google raised $25mln (.2% the capital raised by Uber) before its own public offering, after which it raised only $2bln by comparison to Uber’s $13bln. On top of all of this, Uber continues to face mounting headwinds, as it must expend additional political capital with each new regulated market that it seeks to enter. This has resulted in the company needing to hire lobbyists such as David Plouffe (former Obama Chief of Staff) and Rachel Whetstone (former advisor to David Cameron) to help them break into new markets, both in the US and abroad. In addition, Uber has lost its fight to penetrate the Chinese market, a HUGE setback for the company, and its ambitions in the autonomous, self-driving car market are looking increasingly premature and unpromising. With roughly $7 billion of cash on hand, along with an untapped $2.3 billion credit facility, Uber may not have the financing available to make it more than 2 years without raising additional capital or selling part or all of its remaining assets. As Demetri Kofinas has said in a prior discussion with Evan Lorenz of Grant’s Interest Rate Observer, “This could be the biggest financial blow-up in the history of private placements.” Demetri Kofinas and Hubert Horan cover all of these issues in this must-listen-to segment of Market Forces.

(24 Jan 2017) China may be a major beneficiary of US President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement, a Hong Kong based analyst has said. Speaking to The Associated Press on Monday, analyst Ross Feingold said that those countries that had been a part of the TPP negotiations could now turn to China for bilateral trade agreements and provide impetus for the alternative proposed free trade area of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP). China was not a member of the TPP discussions but along with India, would form a key member of the RCEP agreement that would bind the existing ASEAN trade area with those countries with which the grouping has pre-existing free trade agreements including many signatories of TPP. Feingold also said that if Trump follows through with his pledge to raise tariffs on foreign-made goods - especially those made in China who he accuses of maintaining low exchange rates to favour their exports - the country's car parts manufacturing sector could be affected. This could also include Japanese or Taiwanese car companies who manufacture their parts in China, Feingold added. Trump has threatened to raise tariffs on Chinese goods to 45 percent in response to what he claims is unfair trade policy on the part of the Chinese government. His decision to pull out of the TPP, as promised, is prompting other member countries to seek ways to salvage the trade pact. Leaders of some of the 11 other nations involved in the initiative said they hope to push ahead with the agreement in some form, with or without the US. Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said on Tuesday he had discussed the pact's future recently with the prime ministers of Japan, Singapore and New Zealand, all TPP members, and believed the pact could survive without the US.
