E-Commerce Times: "Wall Street Backs Off Apple"

E-Commerce Times: "Wall Street Backs Off Apple"

. . . Though hardware accounts for more than half of Apple's business, the company has been pivoting toward services, noted Larry Chiagouris, professor of marketing at Pace University's Lubin School of Business.

That should count for something with investors, he said.

"Its ecosystem, to include iTunes and iCloud services, are either already dominant or possibly on the way to being dominant, and so this is not the time to lose faith in the company or its stock," Chiagouris told the E-Commerce Times.

The current perceived loss of faith likely is a byproduct of the times, he suggested. In a connected world, speed rules and investors don't hesitate to look elsewhere for growth when a company stumbles.

Also, investors are more influenced by media reports today than they were a decade or two ago, Chiagouris pointed out.

"All the reporting as of late has been on iPhone sales slowing, and so investors are reacting to these reports," he said. "The more important fact is that, ultimately, hardware companies always confront shrinking margins as the products that they make begin to become less differentiated or even commoditized."

Announcement from President Stephen J. Friedman

January 27, 2016 -- Pace University President Stephen J. Friedman confirmed today that, as he previously indicated to the Board Chairman, he will not request reappointment at the end of his current term in June 2017. Upon the conclusion of his second term, Friedman will have served 10 years as University president. In a letter this morning to the entire Pace community, a copy of which can be found below, President Friedman shared his pleasure on the major strides Pace has made during the past nine years and the very bright future that lies ahead for Pace. The process of selecting the University’s next president will begin shortly.

Stephen J. Friedman became the seventh president of Pace University in June 2007. He was reappointed for a second five-year term by unanimous vote of the University’s Board of Trustees in 2011. Prior to being named president, he served for three years as dean of Pace University School of Law.

Mark Besca, Chairman of Pace University’s Board of Trustees, this morning praised Friedman’s leadership:

“Stephen Friedman is a transformational figure who, from day one, had a keen sense of the University’s potential and a visionary plan to achieve it. Throughout two remarkable terms as president, he has demonstrated passionate advocacy for our students and worked tirelessly to position Pace for a bold and bright future.”

TechNewsWorld: "GoPro Shooters Can Send Live Streams Up Periscope"

TechNewsWorld: "GoPro Shooters Can Send Live Streams Up Periscope"

. . . "Twitter doesn't make as much money from its advertising as Microsoft and Google do with their search engines," noted Darren Hayes, an assistant professor at Pace University.

Twitter's portfolio isn't as diversified as its competitors either.

"Facebook has purchased many different companies and facilitates many other services," Hayes told TechNewsWorld. "Twitter has done some of that -- but not to the same extent as companies like Facebook do."

Attracting new users has been a problem for Twitter, as is getting a handle on how many flesh-and-blood members it has.

"Twitter has a problem with the number of bots using it. There's a huge number of followers who are just bots. People don't realize how big that number is," Hayes said.

"Twitter tries to adjust that. I've heard of people who have lost tens of thousands of followers in an hour because Twitter was going through and clearing out bots that were using the service," he continued. "So their membership numbers may be inflated."

Financial Executives International Daily: "What, Me Retire?"

Financial Executives International Daily: "What, Me Retire?"

Stephen J. Friedman

How financial executives can develop encore careers.

Every day, 10,000 Baby Boomers turn 65. The issue of what to do after “retirement” is faced by tens of millions of men and women as they retire, or much earlier, when they sell a family business or are laid off without much hope of obtaining a comparable job. Many, perhaps most, of this group have no idea how to think about what to do next.

The question then becomes what a person should do when, in their 50s or 60s, they stop what they have been doing for most of their lives. That moment should not automatically be seen as an ending or retirement, which connotes a stepping back, but as the beginning of the third great stage in life. The decision about what to do for the next 10 to 20 years is one of the most challenging and least well-marked in our lives. It is filled with uncertainty, fears, surprises and unknown ground, but the rewards of that period can be extraordinary.

Bloomberg BNA: "For Major Banks, New FASB Rules Present Welcome Change"

Bloomberg BNA: "For Major Banks, New FASB Rules Present Welcome Change"

. . . Leslie Seidman, a former FASB chairman, summarized Jan. 8 the magnitude of change presented by the standards that generally become effective in 2018. She looked to the next shoe to drop on financial instruments accounting in a few months—a new FASB standard on credit impairments, which includes loan losses.

“This new standard represents some important, but fairly targeted changes for equity securities and the fair value option, rather than the overhaul that was originally proposed,” Seidman, executive director at Pace University's Center for Excellence in Financial Reporting, told Bloomberg BNA.

“There's another important change coming down the road—the accounting for loan losses—which represents a significant change for all banks and other lenders,” she wrote.

Huffington Post: "WATCH: How Two People From Different Worlds Found Love"

. . . The video was produced by Yumeng Ji and shot/edited by Charlene Chen, students from Pace University's Media & Communications Arts Graduate School program. They are both graduate students at Pace, majoring in Communication. Yumeng decided to make a video for this romantic love story because it encourages many single people and/or long-distance couples in real life. By sharing the same passion of photography and producing videos, Yumeng and Charlene worked together to bring the real story to the screen.
