There's much disappointment about the lack of an article on BooHoo today, so I'm going to step in. Prepare to be further underwhelmed. I'm wanted to see how BOO compared to Asos subsequent to the launch of Boo's app, and you can get the data to do this: a moving average of web traffic from and app downloads from I only have the…

Here are some graphs: they show a bunch of companies placed according to the automatically generated Earnings-Power (vertical-axis) and Graham valuations (horizontal) from this site. EPV is supposed to consider the firm as it stands today, Graham as the firm it will grow into. AIUI. Overvalued is top left, Undervalued bottom right. No particular rationale for the choices of firms: some are people's picks for…

It's certainly true in academic science hiring. However Gattaca is not, if I remember, a women's picture,…

Tim, I understood that a main reason for London's success is that it's a common law jurisdiction - all is permitted unless explicitly prohibited. The legal hub makes a very solid base for a financial hub??from here:"English law allows the parties to agree the proportion of benefits which may accrue to either party, allowing the parties much greater flexibility of arrangements than under many civil…

"many investors refuse to ditch dying shares, and end up with perfectly avoidable losses."Isn't loss aversion exactly the reason many will vote Remain? Or if you like, consider the Trolley dilemma.
