Акции Viacom могут подорожать на 40%

По оценкам аналитиков Barron's, акции американской медиа-компании Viacom могут подорожать в следующем году примерно на 40% благодаря изменению приоритетов и реинвестированию. В частности, новый СЕО компании Боб Бакиш (Bob Bakish) намерен сосредоточить деятельность на развитии студии Paramount Pictures, а также на развитии таких флагманских сетей, как Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central, Nick Jr и BET. Напомним, что Боб Бакиш был назначен СЕО Viacom в декабре прошлого года, а ранее занимал должность руководителя отдела международного бизнеса. Примечательно, что новую должность он занял спустя два часа после того, как National Amusements (кинокомпания и владелец кинотеатров Cinema De Luxe) отозвала предложение о слиянии Viacom и CBS.

CEO Pay Soars In 2016 As Employee Wages Continue To Stagnate

CEO pay increases took a brief pause in 2015 dropping to a paltry median of just $10.8 million with most getting a pay cut or a raise of less than 1.5%.  But, as the Wall Street Journal points out this morning, the CEO's of America can once again rest assured that their families will not starve to death as 2016 pay soared nearly 7% setting a post-recession record. Median pay for the chief executives of 104 of the biggest American companies rose 6.8% for fiscal 2016 to $11.5 million, on track to set a postrecession record, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis.   Twice as many companies increased their chiefs’ pay as reduced it, though a few high-profile bosses took substantial pay cuts, including Apple Inc.’s Tim Cook and General Electric Co.’s Jeff Immelt.   The higher pay was doled out as the stock market notched strong gains and corporate profits rebounded over the course of 2016. “If ever there was going to be a good year for CEO pay, it was going to be 2016,” said David Yermack, a finance professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business who studies executive pay. As usual, operating results had limited impact on CEO earnings potential and some of the largest payouts went to CEO's who were fired in 2016. Some of the biggest paydays went to companies in transition—or even turmoil. Philippe Dauman, who was forced out as chief of media giant Viacom Inc. in August, made $93 million during the year. The total includes $58 million of exit payments, promised under his 2015 employment agreement. A Viacom spokesman declined to comment.   At Johnson Controls International PLC, Alex Molinaroli made $46.4 million in the year ended Sept. 30, more than double the $21.7 million he made the prior year. Last fall, he split off an auto-parts business that accounted for a significant part of Johnson Controls’ revenue and closed a $14 billion merger with Tyco International PLC. A Johnson Controls spokesman declined to comment.   Meg Whitman made $35.6 million in the year ended Oct. 31 as chief executive of Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co., which was created when she split Hewlett-Packard Co. into two companies in late 2015. That is more than double the $17.1 million she made a year earlier at the combined company.   Her latest package included a special equity grant tied to the launch of HP Enterprise. Aside from such one-time items, “Meg’s target compensation has remained unchanged over the past three years,’’ an HP Enterprise spokeswoman said, referring to a portion of the CEO’s pay package.   Thomas Falk of Kimberly-Clark Corp. received a 29% raise, compared with a 21% pay cut in 2015 and bringing his total compensation to $15.7 million in 2016 from $15.4 million two years earlier.   Mr. Falk’s raise came even as the maker of Huggies diapers and Kleenex tissues posted a shareholder return of -7.7% last year compared with 14% a year earlier.   A Kimberly-Clark spokesman said the company considers its three-year shareholder return of 25% and five-year return of 90% better measures of Mr. Falk’s performance. And here's how the top 20 highest paid CEO's in America made out in 2016:   Much of the higher pay was awarded in various forms of restricted stock or stock options. The compensation increases have come about because rising equity awards have more than made up for declines in cash incentive pay, according to a separate analysis by Institutional Shareholder Services, the large proxy advisory firm. While cash bonuses have fallen about 1.4% among the companies that have filed pay disclosures, stock awards have risen 7.4% and option awards have risen 3%, noted John Roe, head of analytics at ISS. Of course, that's hardly any consolation for the average American worker who just saw his real earnings collapse over the past two years and actually turn negative in 2017.

Numerous High-Profile Twitter Account Hacked, Post Swastikas, Pro-Erdogan, "NaziHolland" Messages

The diplomatic spat between Turkey and the Netherlands spilled into the internet on Wednesday after a large number of Twitter accounts including news agencies, and political entities were hacked by a pro-Turkish group and posted content supporting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in his feud with Europe, with hashtags in Turkish reading “NaziGermany” and “NaziHolland.” As Bloomberg reports, the messages and swastikas appeared on the verified Twitter accounts of German newspaper Die Welt, Forbes Magazine, Duke University, BBC North America, UNICEF, and Reuters Japan. Also targeted were the Twitter accounts of the European Parliament, French politicians like Alain Juppé, Sprint's CEO Marcelo Claure, among others. The attacks, which appeared to be simply a form of political vandalism, used the hashtags #Nazialmanya or #Nazihollanda. The tweets included a swastika and described the attack as a “little Ottoman slap.” “See you on April 16,” they read, referring to the date of Turkey’s referendum to grant more powers to Erdogan, and finish with: “What did I write? Learn Turkish.” A four-minute video attached to the tweets begins with an Erdogan speech in which he says: “If we’re going to die, let’s die like men.” It then features scenes from various Erdogan speeches, starting with his showdown with then-Israeli President Shimon Peres in Davos in 2009, as a campaign song chanting his name, “Recep Tayyip Erdogan,” plays in the background. Following the hijacking, BBC North America tweeted that it “temporarily lost control” of its account, but normal service has resumed. Some of the tweets have been deleted. Hi everyone - we temporarily lost control of this account, but normal service has resumed. Thanks. — BBC North America (@BBCNorthAmerica) March 15, 2017 Shortly after the attacks, Twitter spokeswoman Kaori Saito said that the source of issue affecting a number of accounts was limited to third party app and its permissions were removed immediately. Twitter Counter, a marketing tool that allows people and companies to track their popularity on Twitter, said it’s now blocking people from postings through its system while it studies the issue. The company says it has more than 2 million users and tracks more than 350 million Twitter accounts. “Our app has been used. It’s pending further investigation,” said Twitter Counter Chief Executive Officer Omer Ginor. “We are aware of the situation and have started an investigation into the matter.”  Twitter Counter reported an attack in November in which accounts from Sony Corp., Viacom Inc., Microsoft Corp. and others were compromised and posting spam messages. Twitter Counter apologized and said it had fixed the problem.  We're aware that our service was hacked and have started an investigation into the matter.We've already taken measures to contain such abuse — TheCounter (@thecounter) March 15, 2017 “We are aware of an issue affecting a number of account holders this morning,” said Twitter Inc. company spokeswoman Kaori Saito. “We quickly located the source which was limited to a third party app. We removed its permissions immediately. No additional accounts are impacted.” Ginor said the company had reached “95 percent certainty” that it had fixed the problem after being hacked in November. The company couldn’t be sure a hacker was “still lurking in the shadows, just waiting for the opportunity.”   As Bloomberg notes, the incidents show the indirect ways hackers can take over a company’s Twitter feed. Twitter Counter is one of many companies that plug into Twitter to provide marketing and analytics tools for people, businesses and other groups. Companies including Time Inc., Netflix Inc., Chevron Corp. and YouTube use Twitter Counter, according to its website.
