Hillary's Tech & Media Titans: Hunt down and Sell?

Hillary stocks: To be Hunted down and Sold?


Will these stocks be the new "Hill Dawgs"?




Moving into an uncertain future....

I thought it might be interesting to chart the performance of stocks where the CEO and/or Top management have been vocal supporters of candidate, Hillary Clinton

One of the most obvious targets for Trump-minded short sellers, would be Goldman Sachs



GS / Goldman Sachs ... 4-yrs : 2-yrs : 6-mos : 10-d / Last : $171.66




In an incredible (and illegal) infringement on the free speech of its employees, GS has threaten to fire those who support Hillary's opponent

Another one is Apple


The Int'l New York Times, had a story about fund raising in Silicon Valley,

and much of it was about Apple's CEO, Tim Cooke, a confessed gay activitist who was running a large fund raiser for Hillary


"Tim Cook... hosted a private fund raiser for Hillary Clinton in Los Altos, CA...

Required a donation of $2,700 to $50,000*

It may not be an over-statement to suggest that a chief executive's policies may be one of the most significant factors in swaying employees thinking about elections.

The results of a new academic study looking at the power of CEO's over their employees is stunning and perhaps unsettling."

- Following the boss in politics, Andrew Ross Sorkin, writing in the Int'l NY Times, wed. Sept. 7th, pg.19


AAPL / Apple Inc ... 4-yrs : 2-yrs : 6-mos : 10-d / Last : $105.52



... and then there is the NY Times itself, which has support Mrs Clinton, in thoughts, deeds, and words


NYT / NY Times ... 4-yrs : 2-yrs : 6-mos : 10-d / Last : $13.01

"Peak Bitch" was real ! Mid-August 2016


It showed up in Political Polls, and also in stock prices, like the share price of the NY Times.

It happened when it looked like the NY Times and other Mainstream media thought they could manipulate opinions of Voters.

But Voters rebelled, and rejected the message and manipulation of the NY Times and other mainstream media sources


/ It seems like the "peak Bitch" moment was right after the DNC convention when Bernie Sanders "surrendered" after the Nomination was

stolen, and Team Hillary got busy pumping the old hag up. For a while, people believed the lies. /


First the polls - this is the Daybreak poll from the L.A. Times




10/31 : T 46.9 - C 43.3 = T 3.6 (u: 09.8) 36.7% Advantage in Undecided needed to Bridge the Gap - Impossible?
10/30 : T 46.6 - C 43.2 = T 3.4 (u: 10.2) 33.3%
10/29 : T 46.0 - C 44.1 = T 1.9 (u: 09.1) 20.9%
10/28 : T 46.2 - C 43.8 = T 2.4 (u: 10.0) 24.0%
10/27 : T 45.8 - C 44.1 = T 1.7 (u: 10.1) 16.8%
10/26 : T 45.2 - C 44.5 = T 0.7 (u: 10.3) 06.8%
10/25 : T 45.3 - C 44.2 = T 1.1 (u: 10.5) 10.5%
10/24 : T 44.1 - C 45.0 = C 0.9 (u: 10.9) ++++
10/23 : T 43.8 - C 45.1 = C 1.3 (u: 11.1) ++++
10/22 : T 44.4 - C 44.1 = T 0.3 (u: 11.5) 02.6%

08/13 : T 41.6 - C 46.3 = C 4.7 (u: 12.1)-38.8%
8/13 = "Peak Bitch", the only day that HRC had a winning margin !

Wikileaks Reveals Google's "Strategic Plan" To Help Democrats Win The Election, Track Voters

"Key is the development of a single record for a voter that aggregates all that is known about them. In 2016 smart phones will be used to identify, meet, and update profiles on the voter. A dynamic volunteer can easily speak with a voter and, with their email or other digital handle, get the voter videos and other answers to areas they care about (“the benefits of ACA to you” etc.)"

A STRANGE WAY of looking at it:


'How much poorer will we, as a nation, be at the end of this presidential election?

In terms of emotional or psychological cost, it’s impossible to know. But in terms of lost television advertising dollars, we will be $300 million to $400 million poorer — give or take a hundred million.

. . .

With the race winding up, projections on how much will be spent on political advertising this year are being tamped down. The culprit is Donald Trump, whose campaign has relied far more on free media coverage than on paid advertising. The impact is being felt by local television stations, which rely heavily on political spending and are already struggling against significant pressure elsewhere in their business.

A rededication (or an apology?) - Will you buy it?


New York Times publisher vows to 'rededicate' paper to reporting honestly

Published Nov.12, 2016

May 14, 2014: Pedestrians wait for cabs across the street from The New York Times in New York. (AP)


The publisher of The New York Times penned a letter to readers Friday promising that the paper would “reflect” on its coverage of this year’s election while rededicating itself to reporting on “America and the world” honestly.



Arthur O. Sulzberger Jr., the paper’s embattled publisher, appealed to Times readers for their continued support.


“We cannot deliver the independent, original journalism for which we are known without the loyalty of our subscribers,” the letter states


New York Post columnist and former Times reporter Michael Goodwin wrote, "because it [The Times] demonized Trump from start to finish, it failed to realize he was onto something. And because the paper decided that Trump’s supporters were a rabble of racist rednecks and homophobes, it didn’t have a clue about what was happening in the lives of the Americans who elected the new president."


Sulzberger's letter was released after the paper’s public editor, Liz Spayd, took the paper to task for its election coverage. She pointed out how its polling feature Upshot gave Hillary Clinton an 84 percent chance as voters went to the polls.

She compared stories that the paper ran about President-elect Donald Trump and Clinton, where the paper made Clinton look functional and organized and the Trump campaign discombobulated.

Spayd wrote, “Readers are sending letters of complaint at a rapid rate. Here’s one that summed up the feelings succinctly, from Kathleen Casey of Houston: “Now, that the world has been upended and you are all, to a person, in a state of surprise and shock, you may want to consider whether you should change your focus from telling the reader what and how to think, and instead devote yourselves to finding out what the reader (and nonreaders) actually think.”


She wrote about another reader who asked that the paper should focus on the electorate instead of “pushing the limited agenda of your editors.”

“Please come down from your New York City skyscraper and join the rest of us.”

Sulzberger -- who insisted that the paper covered both candidates fairly -- also sent a note to staffers on Friday reminding the newsroom to “give the news impartially, without fear or favor.”

“But we also approach the incoming Trump administration without bias,” he said.

After Trump's Victory, I have three Big Questions:
1. Will he he really "Drain the Swamp"?
2. Will the Lie-Stream media clean up its act?
3. Will the Fed now use its "interest rate weapon" to create an economic Downturn?

Market to FB founder and friends: "Zuck you, Mark!" (for backing Hillary)



Zuckerberg Net Worth Down $3.7B Since Election...


FB / Facebook ... update : Last: $115.40, down from High of $133.50 in October




Mr. Trump has named 16 business leaders to serve on what’s being called the President’s Strategic and Policy Forum, described as a group meant to guide his administration on economic matters.

The list is notable for leaning toward New York executives and industries — finance in particular. The list echoes Mr. Trump’s picks for a number of major economic positions, including Treasury secretary (the former Goldman Sachs partner and hedge fund manager Steven T. Mnuchin) and commerce secretary (the billionaire investor Wilbur L. Ross).

Given his long experience as a New York real estate investor, Mr. Trump’s selections may not come as a surprise.

“Donald comes from the financial services world. I think he tends to pick people who he’s comfortable with,” Stephen A. Schwarzman, the co-founder and chief executive of the Blackstone Group, who is leading the forum effort, told CNBC Friday afternoon.

The forum largely excludes technology, home to some of the nation’s best-known, most innovative and biggest companies by market value, which represented over 8 percent of the private sector economy last year, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis.

. . .

Four days after November's presidential election, Mark Zuckerberg wrote a lengthy note downplaying the role that fake news on Facebook had in the outcome. More difficult for him to dispute, though, is the recent downward trajectory of his fortune; since November 8, Zuckerberg’s net worth has decreased by nearly $3.7 billion.

That figure is based on a 7% decline in Facebook's share price between Election Day and the end of normal trading at 4:00 P.M. EST on Friday. Despite the fall, Zuckerberg is still the planet’s fifth-richest person, according to FORBES’ real-time rankings of the world’s billionaires, worth an estimated $49 billion.

The recent drop in Facebook’s stock, of course, isn’t necessarily tied to the fake news controversy, or even the impending presidential transition. Shares have been trending down since hitting an all-time high in mid-October, and other tech giants, like Google and Amazon, have lately dipped as well.

But the company is clearly aware of the danger presented by continuing public blowback.

I do hope the Zucker keeps seeing his share values drop

Tower Summit: Trump to Meet Silicon Valley Techies Who Funded Hillary Clinton, Democrats to Tune of Millions

AP Photo/Alex Brandon

by Matthew Boyle13 Dec 2016

The incoming U.S. president really isn’t that scary, not even to Hillary Clinton donors in Silicon Valley.

Now that the election is over, President-elect Donald J. Trump will hold a technology summit at his base of operations, Trump Tower in New York City, on Wednesday with a group of Silicon Valley industry leaders. But most of them funded his presidential campaign opponent Democrat Hillary Clinton and her fellow Democrats to the tune of millions of dollars while avoiding giving to Trump’s campaign and to Republicans generally. According to a Breitbart News analysis, the tech and telecommunications giants donated millions more to Clinton and Democrats than they did to Trump and Republicans—which means that whatever clout they would have had under a never-to-be Clinton administration is probably significantly diminished under the incoming Trump administration.

The CEOs and top executives attending the meeting according to a report in Recode include: Google’s Larry Page, Apple’s Tim Cook, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, Microsoft’s Satya Nadella, and more. According to the Recode report, Facebook investor and PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel is intricately involved in helping organize the meeting of the minds.

In the case of Google, Apple, Facebook and Microsoft, those companies poured millions into backing Clinton—and barely anything into backing Trump.

Tech Titans, are mostly Young Titans (compared to Trump)


Execs representing a whopping $3 trillion just walked into Trump Tower

10 Hours Ago

Whoa, that's a lot of dough walking around in Trump Tower.

President-elect Donald Trump's mega technology summit in New York on Wednesday hosted leaders of companies that have a combined market value of more than $3 trillion.

That's more than the GDP of many countries, including, the United Kingdom, France and India, according to data from the World Bank Group. Trump's tech guests would rank as the fifth-largest country in the world based on GDP.

Apple, of course, came at the top of the list with a market value of $616 billion. Alphabet and Microsoft followed with values of $555 billion and $489 billion, respectively.

Here's the full list:

Apple — $616 billion

Alphabet — $555 billion

Microsoft — $489 billion

— $366 billion

— $347 billion

Intel — $173 billion

Oracle — $167 billion

IBM — $160 billion

Cisco — $154 billion

Tesla — $32 billion

SpaceX — $15 billion

Total — $3.074 trillion

Trump met with most of America's biggest tech companies in an effort to look for common ground after an exceptionally heated and contentious election. The group was expected to discuss U.S. job creation, and how tech firms can work with the government to improve efficiency.

Bezos, Microsoft’s Satya Nadella, Apple’s Tim Cook and other high-flying tech executives attended a meeting at Trump Tower in New York with the president elect and his transition team.


It was an encounter with a man who, as a candidate, rubbed many in the technology industry the wrong way with restrictive views on immigration and other social issues.

Trump didn’t seem very happy with Big Tech either. He lambasted Apple for manufacturing iPhones abroad and singled out Bezos, who owns The Washington Post in addition to Amazon.

Trump tells anxious tech leaders at summit: ‘We’re here to help’

In a statement, Bezos reported that he “shared the view that the administration should make innovation one of its key pillars, which would create a huge number of jobs across the whole country, in all sectors, not just tech — agriculture, infrastructure, manufacturing– everywhere,” the CEO said.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Trump sought to reassure the U.S. tech executives that he had their back. “We want you to keep going with the incredible innovation. There’s nobody like you in the world. … Anything we can do to help this go along, we’re going to be there for you,” he’s quoted as saying.

Delusional? Look what too much wealth can do



Facebook guru Mark Zuckerberg sparks rumours he wants to succeed Trump with epic US speaking tour

The social media genius has also fuelled speculation of a White House run by announcing he had rediscovered religion


4th January 2017, 8:42 pm

MARK Zuckerberg is rumoured to be preparing a sensational bid to become the next US President as he reveals plans to tour the United States.

The Facebook CEO has announced he is touring every single state throughout 2017 in an effort to meet “new people and hear their opinions”.

The famous White House building in Washington DC where the US President resides - could Mark Zuckerberg be a future resident?

Some observers claim the move indicates Zuckerberg may be interested in pursuing a political career in future.

Last month it emerged the social media guru had discussed with company board members how he might enter politics, while retaining control of Facebook.

And now he also said that he was no longer an atheist after rediscovering God, telling a follower on Christmas Day that he realised "religion is very important".

Millions of people could potentially run for US President which requires candidates to be aged 35 or over, to have been born in the USA and lived there for 14 years.

Now the 32-year-old announced his plans to tour the 51 states during 2017.

Speaking on his Facebook page, Zuckerberg said: "After a tumultuous last year, my hope for this challenge is to get out and talk to more people about how they're living, working and thinking about the future.

"Priscilla and I have enjoyed taking road trips together since we started dating. Recently, I've traveled around the world and visited many cities, and now I'm excited to explore more of our country and meet more people here.

Zuck was born into a Jewish family, but began "questioning" his faith as he grew older.

But when one of the tech mogul's fans asked if he was an atheist, he responded: "No. I was raised Jewish and then I went through a period where I questioned things, but now I believe religion is very important."

It is unclear which religion the tech mogul has decided to join.

Zuckerberg tends to avoid discussing religion overtly and tends to keep his opinions under wraps.

But has previously expressed an interest in Buddhism after sharing an image which showed him "offering a prayer for peace and health for the world and for my family", which includes wife Priscilla and baby Max.
