Breakingviews TV: Goldman’s fix

The U.S. bank has been dragged into a corruption scandal around Malaysian state fund 1MDB, and the overriding question is whether its internal controls were up to scratch. Gina Chon explains what past cases say about this one, and what punishment might lie in store.

Breakingviews TV: Amazon HQ2+1

The tech giant has chosen not one new headquarters but two – New York and Arlington, Virginia. That brings more high-paying jobs to wealthy cities with tight labor markets. While Tennessee gets some goodies too, it’s mostly a triumph for the coastal elites, Tom Buerkle explains.

Breakingviews TV: Coty’s M&A JAB

The perfumier is replacing both its chairman and CEO. That comes, Antony Currie and John Foley explain, after Coty made a mess of buying $12.5 bln of P&G assets despite its board, executives and top shareholder JAB being packed with consumer-goods know-how.

Breakingviews TV: SoftBank blur

The many moving parts at Masayoshi Son’s telecom titan are becoming harder for investors to see clearly. Richard Beales and Jeffrey Goldfarb discuss the upcoming mega-IPO of SoftBank’s Japanese mobile unit and the dozens of stakes held by the nearly $100 bln Vision Fund.

Breakingviews TV: Musk’s minder

Breakingviews TV: Dock the vote

Survey and market research firm Qualtrics is seeking a $4 billion valuation in an initial public offering. The business is growing much faster than rival SurveyMonkey, but as Rob Cyran explains, two classes of supervoting stock mean investors’ views will count for little.

Breakingviews TV: Ballot bosses

Companies like Walmart and Levi’s are making it easier for employees to vote in U.S. midterm elections on Tuesday. That’s helpful, but perhaps not totally altruistic. Companies blessed with tax cuts may want to show they’re giving something back, as Jen Saba explains.

Breakingviews TV: $10 bln refund

Mining giant BHP has confirmed it will return all proceeds from a U.S. shale sale. Investor demands and deal discipline are leading to a better use of capital than in the last cycle, Clara Ferreira Marques says. In recent days, even behemoth Chinalco has shown restraint.

Breakingviews TV: House rules

Polls suggest Democrats may wrest control of the U.S. House in next week’s midterm elections. If so, Gina Chon explains that Wall Street and Big Tech can expect much closer scrutiny from Congress. But there’s a glimmer of hope for bipartisan deals on mortgage agency reform.
