American Express CEO Ken Chenault Is Retiring

American Express CEO Ken Chenault Is Retiring

go to Transform Your Finances website for extra facts on money

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / Oct 18, 2017 4:37 PM

Despite credit card giant American Express reporting another round of solid quarterly earnings, with revenue of $8.40bn beating expectations of $8.19bn, and generating EPS of $1.50, also above the $1.48 expected, and boosting its profit guidance for good measure, now projecting full year EPS of $5.80 to $5.90, up from $5.60 to $5.80 (above the consensus estimate of $5.75), AXP stock initially spiked, then immediately slumped back to  unchanged, following news that the company’s CEO since 2001, Ken Chenault, is retiring effective February 1, 2018.

The unexpected departure prompted Warren Buffett, the company’s largest shareholder, to share the following parting words “Ken’s been the gold standard for corporate leadership and the benchmark that I measure others against. He led the company through 9/11, the financial crisis and the challenges of the last couple of years. American Express always came out stronger. Ken never went for easy, short-term answers, never let day-to-day challenges distract him from what was right for the moderate to long term. No one does a better job when it really counts and he’s always done it with the highest degree of integrity.”

Chenault will be replaced by Stephen Squeri, who has been Vice Chairman since 2015 and prior to that was Group President of the Company’s Global Corporate Services Group.

Full press release below:

American Express Announces Stephen J. Squeri to Succeed Kenneth I. Chenault as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

American Express Company (AXP) said today that its Board of Directors has appointed Stephen J. Squeri Chief Executive Officer and elected him Chairman of the Board, each effective February 1, 2018. Mr. Squeri, 58, will succeed Kenneth I. Chenault, 66, who will retire after a distinguished 37-year career with the Company.

Civil liberties and human rights groups denounce illegal DHS social media monitoring

read up on transfs site for more details on financial resources

papersplease.org / October 18th, 2017

The Identity Project and ten other civil liberties and human rights organizations filed comments today with the US Department of Homeland Security objecting to the DHS keeping records of what we say and publish and who we associate with on social media.

(See our FAQ: U.S. government monitoring of social media. The DHS isn’t the only Federal agency spying on us on social media. We submitted comments earlier this month on parallel proposals by the Department of State to expand social media monitoring that it began last year over our objections and those of many other organizations and individuals.)

The comments from civil liberties and human rights groups were submitted in response to a notice from the DHS last month that “Social media handles and aliases, associated identifiable information, and search results” would be added to DHS “Alien Files”.

Our comments were co-signed and submitted jointly on behalf of:

Jeff Bezos, Amazon, And The Wavering Pretense Of American Free Press

Jeff Bezos, Amazon, And The Wavering Pretense Of American Free Press

go look at transFS website for a great deal more material on money

disobedientmedia.com / Elizabeth Vos / 

The past few weeks have been particularly unpleasant for Jeff Bezos’ Amazon and The Washington Post, as news emerged that Amazon executive Roy Price was forced to resigned in the wake of sex abuse allegations. The claims added to reports of The Washington Post’s repressive policies towards the speech of their own writers. Despite all this, some legacy outlets published calls for Bezos to replace Mike Pompeo as CIA Director, should Pompeo resign.

The events of recent weeks vividly show the danger of growing ties between establishment media, the American deep state, and corporate power. This constitutes a worrying increase in the conglomeration of ties which do not serve the public interest or even financially rely on the support of readership, but instead serve to consolidate power for a select few interests.

Amazon executive Roy Price resigned yesterday due to sex abuse allegations leveled in the wake of the Weinstein scandal. The Verge reports that Price was forced to resign in response to sexual harassment claims leveled online by The Man in the High Castle executive producer Isa Hackett.

The report added that Hackett initially filed a complaint against Price in 2015, when the harassment occurred, but that Amazon took no action at the time. That the company was aware of the allegations two years ago but only acted during the unprecedented public exposure of the Weinstein scandal has fueled anger towards an industry which professes socially liberal values, but in practice appears stuck in the a structure of social norms of the 1950’s.

Where the Next Major Banking Crisis Will Begin…

Where the Next Major Banking Crisis Will Begin…

go look at transfs website for additional details on finances

caseyresearch.com / By Justin Spittler and Joe Withrow / October 18 2017

Ray Dalio just bet $1.1 billion against Italy.

Specifically, he shorted (bet against) five Italian banks and one insurance company last quarter. And he did so to the tune of $770 million.

Dalio also bet $311 million against Italy’s largest utility company.

This is a big deal.

You see, Dalio is one of the world’s most respected investors. He manages $160 billion at Bridgewater Associates, the world’s biggest hedge fund.

• But Dalio didn’t reach the top of Wall Street by accident…

He got there because he can spot massive threats and opportunities long before other people do.

For example, Dalio predicted the U.S. housing bubble would burst in 2007. Not only that, he said the crash would spread to the banking sector.

At the time, many people thought this was a crazy idea. But Dalio was right.

That year, the U.S. banking sector imploded. This triggered the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. The average U.S. stock plummeted 57% over the next two years.

• In short, it pays to watch what Dalio’s doing…

So in a minute, I’ll tell you why Dalio made this giant bet. I’ll also show how you, too, can profit from Italy’s problems.

But you first need to understand what those problems are…

Massachusetts Man Convicted Of Plotting To Behead Conservative Blogger Pamela Geller

Massachusetts Man Convicted Of Plotting To Behead Conservative Blogger Pamela Geller

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / Oct 18, 2017 3:40 PM

A Massachusetts man named David Wright has been convicted of plotting to kill conservative blogger Pamela Geller after she organized a draw the Prophet Muhammad contest in Texas in 2015.

Wright, 28, is facing life in prison after being found guilty on all charges, including conspiracy to provide material support to a designated terrorist organization and conspiracy to commit acts of terrorism transcending national boundaries, after prosecutors said Wright, his uncle and a third man conspired to kill Geller because they were outraged that she organized the contest. The contest, which took place in 2015, was interrupted when two men opened fire outside the event, wounding a security guard before they were killed ina  shootout with law enforcement. But the attackers had no connection to Wright or his family members.

Wright’s uncle, Ussamah Rahim, told Wright on a recorded phone call that took place after Geller’s event that he couldn’t wait to attack Geller and decided instead to go after “those boys in blue,” referring to the police. Wright told his uncle that he thought this was “beautiful” and encouraged him to delete all the data from his computer before carrying out his attack, the Associated Press reported. Hours later, Rahim was shot and killed by authorities after he lunged at them with a knife when they approached him in Boston. The group never carried out their planned attack on Geller.

“Wall Street did not accidentally run a barge aground and leave a small oil slick on the Hudson River. Wall Street did not accidentally release tainted lettuce that sickened a few dozen people.

What Wall Street did was intentional and criminal: it financially engineered a toxic subprime house of cards which it knew from its own internal reviews was going to collapse; it then molded the toxic product into inscrutable bundles; it sold the bundles to unsuspecting investors around the globe while making side bets that it would all come crashing down.

Then, after causing the greatest financial collapse in the United States since the Great Depression, Wall Street’s unrepentant scoundrels paid themselves billions of dollars in bonuses with taxpayer bailout funds.”

Pam and Russ Martens, Wall Street On Parade

There will be a stock options expiration for October on this Friday.

The touts are talking up stocks this week. I’ll take that as a good sign to take profits out of equities if you have them. We are nearing what is likely to be at least a short term top.

The bullish argument is that the Fed will keep supplying easy money to Wall Street, and they and their minions will keep piling into stocks because they have no other choice. That is sounding a bit tired at this point.
