MongoDB wants to empower developers to do more with its NoSQL database. The company unveiled MongoDB Atlas and MongoDB Connector for Apache Spark at its third annual MongoDB World conference in New York City today.

“When people free their mind and focus on the problem or task at hand, you can do your best thinking,” said Dev Ittycheria, president and CEO of MongoDB. “Our sense of product, our whole mission…is to unleash the power of software and data for innovators everywhere.”

(Related: Microsoft releases SQL Server 2016)

According to Eliot Horowitz, CTO and cofounder of MongoDB, when the database service was first launched seven years ago, no one was using the cloud. Today, he said most of its users are deploying MongoDB in the public cloud. MongoDB Atlas is a new on-demand cloud service designed to help developers build applications that scale, as well as provide simplicity, robustness and elasticity. It uses MongoDB’s infrastructure and turnkey management capabilities, and it handles operational tasks such as provisioning, configuration, patching, upgrades, backups and failure recovery.

Atlas will be available on Amazon Web Services, with support for Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform with cross-cloud replication features to follow.

“The day we founded MongoDB, we envisioned a world where developers could focus on what’s most important, turning their giant ideas into innovative applications; MongoDB Atlas embodies just that,” said Horowitz. “By running on MongoDB Atlas, developers can trust that their applications will be highly available, secure, scale seamlessly, and without the downtime that comes from applying patch updates. MongoDB Atlas is the culmination of over five years of building software to run MongoDB in the cloud.”

Connector for Apache Spark aims to give developers and data scientists even more insight into their live, operational and streaming data. The connector was developed with the help of Databricks, creator of Apache Spark, and has received a Databricks Certified Application status for Spark for its integration and API between the two solutions. The connector is written in Apache Spark’s native language Scala in order to provide a natural experience.

“Users are already combining Apache Spark and MongoDB to build sophisticated analytics applications,” said Reynold Xin, cofounder and chief architect of Databricks. “The new native MongoDB Connector for Apache Spark provides higher performance, greater ease of use, and access to more advanced Apache Spark functionality than any MongoDB connector available today.”

MongoDB 3.2 was released late last year with improvements to WiredTiger, replica set elections, and the aggregation pipeline, as well as new features like document validation and $lookup. Version 3.4 is expected to be released later this year with improvements to initial sync, collation per operation, a new BI connector, read-only views, zones, recursive $lookup, faceted search, and improvements to Compass designed to help developers see and understand their data. Compass is also available as a beta version with new geo, indexes, explain plan, and CRUD features for developers to try.

Killexams : Meet a Strategist — Beaumont Capital Management

This article was originally published on ETFTrends.com.

Meet a Strategist is a weekly feature where Evan Harp talks to different strategists about how their firms are responding to the current moment. This week, he sat down with Brendan Ryan, partner and portfolio manager with Beaumont Capital Management.

Evan Harp: What's keeping your clients up at night?

Brendan Ryan: The obvious answer is the market. But I would also say that we’ve been surprised with how little fear or concerns or pushback we've gotten. I don't know if that is just a function of everybody being burned out from COVID and it being the summer coinciding with this huge drawdown. I've been, personally, extremely panic about our clients as financial advisors. This is probably the most difficult period that they've had in 14 years because of how poorly fixed income is doing. So even advisors' most conservative clients are feeling pain, which they wouldn't have expected to feel outside of a really historically bad event, like a 2008 or something, which isn't happening.

I think we've all been positively surprised with how little concern there is. But, at the same time, that fixed income component is problematic. There's been this underlying and probably incorrect view for the last cycle that rates were always going to rise and fixed income was this horrible asset class. I think that was wrong. For a lot of reasons, we can't actually have extremely high interest rates, and maybe you're already seeing them top out a bit. But I think having that underlying fear of everyone sort of waiting for this surge -- and then it happened, is going to aid in the fear. But, again, like I said, I’m surprised, given how I'm concerned for advisors in this environment, how little fear we've seen so far.

Evan Harp: Do you have any exact changes in allocations?

Brendan Ryan: We haven't made a lot of major changes to the models. We came into the year pretty underweight equities. As the market fell, we've gone to a slightly below-neutral equity stance, and we've stayed around there. I expect we'll continue to stay around there.

What is changing is the selection within equities. There's been a major consistency to growthier tech equities that has been beaten up more than the market. For the most part, those are better companies than the average. So we understand why, even though our system is entirely quantitative, why those might be attractive right now.

But then, on the margin, we're seeing things come in and out just given the volatility in the market. Some weeks we're leaning towards a more cyclical exposure outside of that core tech growthier position, and some weeks we're leaning towards more traditionally conservative equity exposure.

I think that's probably what we're going to continue to see, as I doubt our models are going to get comfortable going really overweight equities, given the volatility, unless something clears up quickly -- or really underweighted, given how far they've already fallen. The odds are stacked in your favor in a vacuum when the price declines. So, I think that neutral/below-neutral stance is going to remain, and then we're going to see some security selection. This is, I think, an exciting environment for security selection, because of all the different factors at play that are affecting different industries in different ways.

Evan Harp: What do you think of the markets right now?

Brendan Ryan: I alluded to it already, but I'm cautiously optimistic.

I think there are a lot of really good companies now that have been punished by the market that are probably having a temporary setback of some kind, that COVID created these really weird effects where some companies were over-earning, maybe the retailers were over-earning because people were stuck at home and they could only buy physical goods, they couldn't travel. That's totally reversed, and even though that was somewhat predictable, it caught some companies off guard or happened faster, so they've overspent and now their margins are compressing.

But I really think that that's temporary for most of these better companies. Maybe the simplest examples are Amazon and Netflix, that are just comparing to an over-earning period. I don't think that they're structurally weakened, but the markets punished them. I think, with patience, businesses like that are going to come out ahead. That's what you're seeing at a granular level, but from a higher level, we've already taken a lot of pain. I don't think that we're looking at a 2008 type scenario, because there isn't much debt in the system at all right now. It's all on the government, all the debt that accumulated in this cycle is on the government's balance sheet, not on businesses which have record low debt to EBITDA, or consumers which have really healthy assets to debt and financial obligations to income.

If there is a slowdown, both of those groups can start spending quickly because they're not over-encumbered with these debts they had to pay down, which is why 2008 was so bad, and the recovery was so slow afterwards. All of your incremental savings had to go to paying down that debt or worse, in business cases, some of them had to go bankrupt. A big theme I think we all have here economically is that this last 15 years of a more digitized economy has really sped up the feedback loops and how things happen. So, for instance, on any given day as a consumer, I can look at my portfolio and know exactly how much money I have. I can look at Zillow and see exactly how much my house is worth. If those variables change, I can adjust my own patterns in real time, and I think businesses have the same situation where they're getting data so quickly, they can adjust quickly.

I think that's why we've already seen the market correct so quickly, and maybe growth in the economy is slowing quickly, but at the same time, the heat or over-exuberance in certain areas of the economy are also maybe healing and correcting extremely quickly, which is why I think we can have a quicker rebound from the slowdown or whatever it is that people may be anticipating.

Evan Harp: Are there any ETFs you want to highlight?

Brendan Ryan: Yeah, so there's three ETFs that our models like right now that also align with my own thinking.

The first is the iShares Semiconductor ETF (SOXX). That's been one of the favorites of our model. From a quantitative standpoint, I think it makes sense in that it's done really well for a long time and it's been beaten down more than the market, but in a way isn't looking like an outlier. So, it doesn't look like something special is happening to that sector in a negative way outside of just in a broad risk-off sense. But also, if you look at those businesses, the market in semiconductors has rationalized. They're still cyclical, but they're not as cyclical as they used to be. In the down cycle, they're not going to lose money because the industry is healthier, there are more endpoints than there used to be. I think you've taken a lot of pain in that sector, but it's one of those that if you look out just a little bit longer, it's not going anywhere. The businesses maybe had a period where there was a supply/demand imbalance, so they were making a little bit too much money, but that doesn't mean that they're going to suddenly shift to losing money like a more traditional cyclical -- like a steel or aluminum company might have to deal with. And they're not over-levered. Like I said, in the whole market, there's not a ton of debt, so in a downturn they're not going to have to pay down that debt, they're going to have excess profit.

Then the other two. I alluded to one, the First Trust Dow Jones Internet Index Fund (IDN). That's the internet companies, so that would include Amazon and Netflix. We think this is an area where, again, that part of the sector has gotten ahead of the rest of the market. There's obviously been a huge rationalization and a lot of these early-stage tech companies that were maybe subsidizing their businesses, but we don't think that for the top companies in the internet sector -- we don't think that was happening at all. And now these businesses are suddenly looking attractive, and a lot of them fit that description I mentioned earlier, where there's some sort of temporary setback that has investors concerned about the next couple quarters, but over the next couple years is going to revert to the original trends you were seeing in a lot of these secular winners. Many of them will likely end up being really attractive investments from this down point.

Then the third one is a little bit different and not as core of a holding for our models. That's the iShares US Home Construction ETF (ITB). There’s obviously a ton of fear for home builders right now because everyone's expecting prices to come down, mortgage rates have risen so much it's infringing materially on affordability because prices haven't come down yet either. But all of those companies are 50% off their highs and whatnot, they've already taken tons of pain. We think that the demand for new homes is still there. There's this massive demographic tailwind of people in their early 30s, that core Millennial demographic, that are just moving into homeownership. You've had this long, long cycle of under supply by the industry, and you don't have any of the real major risk factors that caused 2008 where people were getting loans they shouldn't have, so we haven't extended bad credit. I don't think there's a lot of forced sellers that are really going to drive home prices down unless the economy truly gets terrible. So, I think this is another area akin to those internet companies where you're seeing a demand pause, but not demand destruction and not a misallocation of capital that really requires a painful, extended wash out. I think homebuying activity can resume quickly, and it may resume very quickly as we settle in and people get accustomed to these new higher mortgage rates.

Evan Harp: What is one thing that sets your firm apart?

Brendan Ryan: I think the biggest thing for us is sophistication. Our model really isn't dependent on any singular factor. It's difficult if you're a value or growth investor in your work, or maybe even something a little more obscure than that. Even if you're international or small-cap or something, you're kind of pigeon-holed into some sort of bias that you have to wait to play out. Our models are purely working on probabilities, which means that theoretically, any sort of environment or situation, it should have an opportunity to find something attractive, and we give it this huge pool of options so that's possible. This year has obviously been difficult in that, even with a huge pool of options, there aren't that many things that have gone up. But I think that's the biggest differentiator for us. If I'm investing with us, I'm betting on the model working but I'm not betting on some sort of fundamental factor that has to play out.

We think it makes our model a little bit more robust than if you have something that's too simple, that worked in the past, often those things don't work going forward because other people figured them out, or they were just an artifact of history rather than something consistent in the market.

Killexams : New Research from Snyk and The Linux Foundation Reveals Significant Security Concerns Resulting from Open Source Software Ubiquity

The State of Open Source Security Highlights Many Organizations Lacking Strategies to Address Application Vulnerabilities Arising from Code Reuse

BOSTON, June 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Snyk, the leader in developer security, and The Linux Foundation, a global nonprofit organization enabling innovation through open source, today announced the results of their first joint research report, The State of Open Source Security.

The results detail the significant security risks resulting from the widespread use of open source software within modern application development as well as how many organizations are currently ill-prepared to effectively manage these risks. Specifically, the report found:

  • Over four out of every ten (41%) organizations don't have high confidence in their open source software security;
  • The average application development project has 49 vulnerabilities and 80 direct dependencies (open source code called by a project); and,
  • The time it takes to fix vulnerabilities in open source projects has steadily increased, more than doubling from 49 days in 2018 to 110 days in 2021.

“Software developers today have their own supply chains – instead of assembling car parts, they are assembling code by patching together existing open source components with their unique code. While this leads to increased productivity and innovation, it has also created significant security concerns,” said Matt Jarvis, Director, Developer Relations, Snyk. “This first-of-its-kind report found widespread evidence suggesting industry naivete about the state of open source security today. Together with The Linux Foundation, we plan to leverage these findings to further educate and equip the world’s developers, empowering them to continue building fast, while also staying secure.”

“While open source software undoubtedly makes developers more efficient and accelerates innovation, the way modern applications are assembled also makes them more challenging to secure,” said Brian Behlendorf, General Manager, Open Source Security Foundation (OpenSSF). “This research clearly shows the risk is real, and the industry must work even more closely together in order to move away from poor open source or software supply chain security practices.”

Snyk and The Linux Foundation will be discussing the report’s full findings as well as recommended actions to Improve the security of open source software development during a number of upcoming events:

41% of Organizations Don't Have High Confidence in Open Source Software Security

Modern application development teams are leveraging code from all sorts of places. They reuse code from other applications they’ve built and search code repositories to find open source components that provide the functionality they need. The use of open source requires a new way of thinking about developer security that many organizations have not yet adopted.

Further consider:

  • Less than half (49%) of organizations have a security policy for OSS development or usage (and this number is a mere 27% for medium-to-large companies); and,
  • Three in ten (30%) organizations without an open source security policy openly recognize that no one on their team is currently directly addressing open source security.

Average Application Development Project: 49 Vulnerabilities Spanning 80 Direct Dependencies

When developers incorporate an open source component in their applications, they immediately become dependent on that component and are at risk if that component contains vulnerabilities. The report shows how real this risk is, with dozens of vulnerabilities discovered across many direct dependencies in each application evaluated.

This risk is also compounded by indirect, or transitive, dependencies, which are the dependencies of your dependencies. Many developers do not even know about these dependencies, making them even more challenging to track and secure.

That said, to some degree, survey respondents are aware of the security complexities created by open source in the software supply chain today:

  • Over one-quarter of survey respondents noted they are concerned about the security impact of their direct dependencies;
  • Only 18% of respondents said they are confident of the controls they have in place for their transitive dependencies; and,
  • Forty percent of all vulnerabilities were found in transitive dependencies.

Time to Fix: More Than Doubled from 49 Days in 2018 to 110 Days in 2021

As application development has increased in complexity, the security challenges faced by development teams have also become increasingly complex. While this makes development more efficient, the use of open source software adds to the remediation burden. The report found that fixing vulnerabilities in open source projects takes almost 20% longer (18.75%) than in proprietary projects.

About The Report
The State of Open Source Security is a partnership between Snyk and The Linux Foundation, with support from OpenSSF, the Cloud Native Security Foundation, the Continuous Delivery Foundation and the Eclipse Foundation. The report is based on a survey of over 550 respondents in the first quarter of 2022 as well as data from Snyk Open Source, which has scanned more than 1.3B open source projects.

About Snyk
Snyk is the leader in developer security. We empower the world’s developers to build secure applications and equip security teams to meet the demands of the digital world. Our developer-first approach ensures organizations can secure all of the critical components of their applications from code to cloud, leading to increased developer productivity, revenue growth, customer satisfaction, cost savings and an overall improved security posture.

Killexams : Brittney Griner's cannabis use is normal in America. But Russia's drug laws are 'draconian.'

For as much as cannabis use, in its various forms, is accepted commercially and therapeutically in many parts of the United States, the rest of the world has yet to adopt similar views and laws.

Many countries will imprison a person for possessing THC products that are legal in the United States, Russian legal expert Jamison Firestone said.

“Russian drug laws are draconian,” Firestone told USA TODAY Sports. “But so are Saudi, Singaporean and Chinese laws.”

This is what led to Brittney Griner’s arrest on Feb. 17 in Russia. The two-time gold medalist faces 10 years in jail on drug charges after border officials said they found “narcotics” while Griner passed through Sheremetyevo Airport. During Griner’s trial, which could end as early as this week, prosecutors argued she had approximately 0.7 grams of cannabis in vape cartridges. Griner pleaded guilty “without intent” and said she accidentally placed the cannabis in her luggage while packing quickly. The State Department classified Griner as "wrongfully detained" on May 3.

When Jeff Konin speaks about cannabis use with the medical staffs of any sports team that may travel, he delivers a clear message.

“It is really important to understand the state laws when you cross borders, when you are on an airplane and obviously when you switch countries,” the clinical professor at Florida International University told USA TODAY Sports.

Players’ management and representation need to stress awareness of what an athlete may be carrying when traveling to a place that is not marijuana-friendly, Firestone said. Flying domestically with marijuana is also prohibited. Check every pocket and bag while packing, he added.

Brittney Griner holds up a photo of players from the exact WNBA All-Star Game wearing her number while sitting in a cage in a Russian court room.

“It should be like a travel checklist to make 100% sure you don’t have this stuff while traveling with a stern warning of the consequences if you do,” Firestone said of abroad travel. “Because it’s not a slap on the wrist.

“It could destroy your life.”

Even if the amount is less than what could fill a standard one-gram vape cannister.

“Certainly nothing you could argue was used for trafficking. It would be very reasonable to say it’s a personal amount, and really only a personable amount for a small period of time,” said Josiah Hesse, the author of a book about the combined effects of cannabis and exercise called “Runner’s High.”

'A way to cope'

From Ricky Williams to Matt Barnes to Jonathan Papelbon, ex-pros have been forthcoming about their use of marijuana.

“Cannabis, what I hear from so many athletes, is that it takes away from all the ancillary (things) – all the data, all the chatter, all the sponsors,” Hesse told USA TODAY Sports

Anxiety reduction is one reason an athlete – or anyone – may use marijuana. Another is chronic pain, the reason Griner had a physician’s recommendation for marijuana, her lawyers argued in Russian court.

But specifically for athletes, Hesse said, it can settle the mind for those who are always “on.”

“It puts them back in the moment and it reminds them why they got into basketball or running or tennis in the first place,” Hesse said.

Some pros may have nine-figure incomes, but they are still human, former NBA player Al Harrington said.

“Life is hard, man, especially over the last couple of years,” said Harrington, who is now the CEO and founder of Viola Brands, a cannabis company. “(Athletes) want a way to cope with things. I feel like cannabis allows that.”

Konin said studies that survey athletes typically reveal a 30% usage rate. That figure is likely underreported.

Cannabis can be recommend by a doctor for treatment although the government still considers it a Schedule I drug. Other Schedule I drugs include ecstasy, heroin and lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). Cocaine, fentanyl and Ritalin are among Schedule II drugs (high potential for abuse with the potential to lead to severe psychological or physical dependence).

Dr. Kenneth R. Weinberg, chief medical officer of Cannabis Doctors of New York, who was an emergency room doctor for 35 years and has been working with patients in the marijuana field since 2016, disagrees with the government’s assessment of what a Schedule I narcotic is.

Weinberg said marijuana is a vastly superior alternative for pain management than opioids, and points to the fact that some drugs, including cocaine, also have medical benefits as it has been used to treat nosebleeds and is a local anesthetic.

“Any substance that somebody can take that they have some psychoactive effect from is potentially addictive, but cannabis is among the lowest of them,” Weinberg said. “As a physician, I have to be objective. This is a great substance. It’s been around for 5,000 years. It doesn’t make sense to make it on the level as other substances on the list.”

Thirty-one states and Washington D.C. have decriminalized the possession of varying small amounts of marijuana.

In Arizona, where Griner plays for the Phoenix Mercury, citizens can possess an ounce of marijuana. Five grams of marijuana plant resin is legal for wax or oil for vape pens and the drug can’t be publicly consumed.

The four major sports men’s professional leagues in North America each approach marijuana use differently.

In the NFL, players are no longer suspended for using marijuana, but can be fined, with the testing window being reduced significantly. The NBA also prohibits marijuana use and has also condensed its testing protocol. MLB views the drug the same as alcohol after removing it from its banned substance list in 2019. The NHL also screens for the drug, but if a player has high levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), one of the main components in marijuana, the league recommends the player for treatment.

The WNBA has its own rules governed by language in the league’s collective bargaining agreement.

The WNBA does not classify marijuana as a drug of abuse like the federal government does but it is listed under one of three categories for prohibited substances. The WNBA has worked extensively with the U.S. government to bring Griner home safely. It declined comment on Griner’s lawyer stating in Russian court that Griner had received medical clearance in the U.S. to use marijuana or the league’s drug policy.

The medical community is hesitant to embrace marijuana use because of the absence of quality research allowed on humans. All evidence of benefits is anecdotal. The effects on the lungs, heart and brain of smoking or vaping, for example, two decades from the time of use are still unknown, Konin said.

“We just need a lot of science to catch up to essentially verify what the athletes who are using marijuana are telling us and if there are really any short- and long-term concerns,” Konin said.

A changing stigma

The World Anti-Doping Agency bans cannabis. That view has little to do with science, Hesse said (although its capabilities as a performance-enhancer aren’t fully understood).

“This is a cultural issue. WADA and a lot of professional sports are still living in Nancy Reagan’s America,” he said. “Good people do not use marijuana – that’s basically what WADA is getting at with their ban.”

That philosophy is why, despite its growing popularity, openly discussing cannabis use is mostly taboo in the sports industry.

“At the end of the day, this is about sports being a family-friendly event and certain people thinking that cannabis use is not compatible with family-friendly arenas,” he said.

In June, MLB started allowing teams to sell sponsorships of CBD products – CBD is the chemical found in marijuana but without THC, the psychoactive ingredient that produces the feeling of being “high.”

The stigma within athletics has transformed within the last decade, Konin said, for two primary reasons: the disproportionate criminalization of racial minorities and social inequities relative to marijuana use combined with athletes seeking an alternative to painkillers.

Griner’s case has helped raise that awareness once again, Harrington said.

“So now it’s on us to try and figure out how to make that a positive and we need to start by getting her home,” he said.

The next step is freeing Americans currently incarcerated within the system for marijuana-related offenses, Harrington added.

“Reform needs to happen at a lot of different levels,” Harrington said. “Hopefully once we get her home, that will also be able to spark the conversation.”

It’s unlikely current athletes will clamor to tell their marijuana use tales. It wasn’t long ago Josh Gordon was suspended 78 games by the NFL and effectively blackballed for his marijuana use. Last year’s suspension of U.S. track and field sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson, who missed the Tokyo Olympics, will only dissuade them, Hesse said.

During an appearance on David Letterman’s Netflix show, Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant said he wants to change the narrative around athletes using marijuana and admitted to being high on set.

“You would think that was headline news. It wasn’t,” Harrington said. “There was no backlash, because I think the stigma has for sure changed.”

Stars telling their cannabis stories will only keep changing the stigma, Harrington said.

“He’s arguably the best player in the NBA and he uses cannabis,” Harrington said. “Stigma would tell you the opposite, that he should be the worst player, the most unmotivated player, the guy that’s not focused and shooting airballs or whatever.

“It’s guys like that, at that level to preach the gospel and let people know that they use it for different reasons, I think the stigma will continue to fall in sports. It’s going to take some of the top guys.”

The facility has 20,000 cubic feet of storage space dedicated to relief items, and Amazon works with humanitarian partners around the world to deploy essential supplies when a disaster strikes, using Amazon’s global logistics network. Since 2017, Amazon has provided more than 18 million items to support relief partners worldwide during 81 natural disasters.

  • With $96 million in cash donations to more than 180 organizations, Amazon was recognized by the Puget Sound Business Journal as the top corporate philanthropist in its home state of Washington. These contributions were part of Amazon’s total global donations of more than $360 million last year.

  • Amazon was awarded the Defender of Innocence Award by the Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project. This award recognized Amazon’s legal department for its pro bono work to prevent and correct the conviction of innocent people in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. Over the past few years, 120 Amazon lawyers in more than 14 countries have spent hundreds of hours screening, evaluating, and litigating cases for the organization—more time, people, and resources than any other company or law firm.

  • Amazon announced additional investments in affordable housing projects in its hometown communities through the Amazon Housing Equity Fund’s $2 billion commitment. The Fund invested more than $30 million to create and preserve 705 affordable homes in Nashville, Tennessee, and in Seattle. The projects are in neighborhoods facing increasing rents and displacement pressures, and five out of the six investments are with local minority-led organizations. Since the launch of the Fund in 2021, Amazon has created or preserved over 8,000 affordable homes, increasing the affordable housing inventory in Bellevue, Washington, and Arlington, Virginia, by at least 20% in one year.

  • In India, Amazon raised its pledge to now enable $20 billion in cumulative exports by 2025. Since launching in 2015, Amazon’s Global Selling program has grown to more than 100,000 exporters that are showcasing millions of Made in India products to customers worldwide through Amazon’s store. Indian exporters are on track to surpass $5 billion in cumulative exports. In Italy, Amazon announced a new pledge to help the more than 18,000 small and medium-sized businesses selling on Amazon reach €1.2 billion in annual export sales by 2025. This pledge will support the objectives of the Italian government’s National Recovery and Resilience Plan while ensuring a wider availability of original Italian products to customers worldwide.

  • In India, Amazon launched Smart Commerce, a new initiative to further digitize local retail stores by enabling them to create customized online storefronts and provide an enhanced in-store shopping experience. Stores of any size will now take advantage of Amazon’s shopping innovations, logistics, and digital payments to provide a reliable and trustworthy experience for customers in store, directly through their dedicated online storefronts or on Amazon.in. There are more than 150,000 local stores already selling on Amazon.in, and Amazon is committed to digitizing 10 million small businesses, including local stores, by 2025.

  • AWS announced that it selected 34 startups to receive funding and guidance across three accelerators in Sustainable Cities, Space, and Clean Energy. Each startup is eligible to receive technical guidance, business development and strategy support, collaboration opportunities with AWS customers and members of the AWS Partner Network, and up to $100,000 in AWS promotional credits.

Protecting the Planet

  • In the U.S., Amazon started making customer deliveries with its custom Rivian electric delivery vehicles (EDVs). This rollout is the start of what Amazon plans to be thousands of EDVs in more than 100 cities by the end of 2022—and 100,000 EDVs across the U.S. by 2030. In India, Amazon signed an agreement with Tata Motors to include the new Tata Ace electric vehicle as part of Amazon’s delivery fleet. The new EDV was co-developed with Amazon and will contribute to the company’s goal of having 10,000 EDVs on the road in India by 2025. In the UK, Amazon announced the launch of its first micromobility hub for more sustainable deliveries in central London. E-cargo bikes and walkers from the new hub, along with Amazon’s electric fleet already on London’s roads, will make over 5 million deliveries a year across more than 10% of London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone.

  • Amazon’s Climate Pledge Fund made new investments in Electric Hydrogen and Sunfire, two developers of electrolyzer technologies. Electrolyzer technology makes green hydrogen using water and renewable electricity. The Fund has announced investments in 18 companies to date as part of its mission to invest in visionary companies whose products and solutions will facilitate the transition to a low-carbon economy.

  • The Climate Pledge announced a collaboration with the National Geographic Society to fund 15 National Geographic Explorers as they document the global climate crisis as part of the Society’s Global Storytellers Fund. The collaboration will advance early career and established storytellers—including photographers, writers, and filmmakers—with the funding, training, and exposure necessary to help inspire global audiences and drive urgent action against the climate crisis.

Financial Guidance

The following forward-looking statements reflect Amazon.com’s expectations as of July 28, 2022, and are subject to substantial uncertainty. Our results are inherently unpredictable and may be materially affected by many factors, such as uncertainty regarding the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, fluctuations in foreign exchange rates, changes in global economic conditions and customer demand and spending, inflation, regional labor market and global supply chain constraints, world events, the rate of growth of the Internet, online commerce, and cloud services, and the various factors detailed below. This guidance reflects our estimates as of July 28, 2022 regarding the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on our operations as well as the effect of other factors discussed above.

Third Quarter 2022 Guidance

  • Net sales are expected to be between $125.0 billion and $130.0 billion, or to grow between 13% and 17% compared with third quarter 2021. This guidance anticipates an unfavorable impact of approximately 390 basis points from foreign exchange rates.

  • This guidance assumes, among other things, that no additional business acquisitions, restructurings, or legal settlements are concluded.

A conference call will be webcast live today at 2:30 p.m. PT/5:30 p.m. ET, and will be available for at least three months at amazon.com/ir. This call will contain forward-looking statements and other material information regarding the Company’s financial and operating results.

These forward-looking statements are inherently difficult to predict. actual results and outcomes could differ materially for a variety of reasons, including, in addition to the factors discussed above, the amount that Amazon.com invests in new business opportunities and the timing of those investments, the mix of products and services sold to customers, the mix of net sales derived from products as compared with services, the extent to which we owe income or other taxes, competition, management of growth, potential fluctuations in operating results, international growth and expansion, the outcomes of claims, litigation, government investigations, and other proceedings, fulfillment, sortation, delivery, and data center optimization, risks of inventory management, variability in demand, the degree to which the Company enters into, maintains, and develops commercial agreements, proposed and completed acquisitions and strategic transactions, payments risks, and risks of fulfillment throughput and productivity. Other risks and uncertainties include, among others, risks related to new products, services, and technologies, system interruptions, government regulation and taxation, and fraud. In addition, global economic conditions and additional or unforeseen effects from the COVID-19 pandemic amplify many of these risks. More information about factors that potentially could affect Amazon.com’s financial results is included in Amazon.com’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), including its most exact Annual Report on Form 10-K and subsequent filings.

Our investor relations website is amazon.com/ir and we encourage investors to use it as a way of easily finding information about us. We promptly make available on this website, free of charge, the reports that we file or furnish with the SEC, corporate governance information (including our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics), and select press releases, which may contain material information about us, and you may subscribe to be notified of new information posted to this site.

Killexams : Here's What QUALCOMM Incorporated's (NASDAQ:QCOM) Shareholder Ownership Structure Looks Like

If you want to know who really controls QUALCOMM Incorporated (NASDAQ:QCOM), then you'll have to look at the makeup of its share registry. Institutions will often hold stock in bigger companies, and we expect to see insiders owning a noticeable percentage of the smaller ones. Companies that used to be publicly owned tend to have lower insider ownership.

With a market capitalization of US$137b, QUALCOMM is rather large. We'd expect to see institutional investors on the register. Companies of this size are usually well known to retail investors, too. Our analysis of the ownership of the company, below, shows that institutions are noticeable on the share registry. Let's take a closer look to see what the different types of shareholders can tell us about QUALCOMM.

Check out our latest analysis for QUALCOMM

ownership-breakdown

What Does The Institutional Ownership Tell Us About QUALCOMM?

Institutions typically measure themselves against a benchmark when reporting to their own investors, so they often become more enthusiastic about a stock once it's included in a major index. We would expect most companies to have some institutions on the register, especially if they are growing.

We can see that QUALCOMM does have institutional investors; and they hold a good portion of the company's stock. This suggests some credibility amongst professional investors. But we can't rely on that fact alone since institutions make bad investments sometimes, just like everyone does. It is not uncommon to see a big share price drop if two large institutional investors try to sell out of a stock at the same time. So it is worth checking the past earnings trajectory of QUALCOMM, (below). Of course, keep in mind that there are other factors to consider, too.

earnings-and-revenue-growth

Since institutional investors own more than half the issued stock, the board will likely have to pay attention to their preferences. Hedge funds don't have many shares in QUALCOMM. The Vanguard Group, Inc. is currently the company's largest shareholder with 9.4% of shares outstanding. Meanwhile, the second and third largest shareholders, hold 7.3% and 4.3%, of the shares outstanding, respectively.

On studying our ownership data, we found that 25 of the top shareholders collectively own less than 50% of the share register, implying that no single individual has a majority interest.

While it makes sense to study institutional ownership data for a company, it also makes sense to study analyst sentiments to know which way the wind is blowing. Quite a few analysts cover the stock, so you could look into forecast growth quite easily.

Insider Ownership Of QUALCOMM

While the precise definition of an insider can be subjective, almost everyone considers board members to be insiders. Management ultimately answers to the board. However, it is not uncommon for managers to be executive board members, especially if they are a founder or the CEO.

Most consider insider ownership a positive because it can indicate the board is well aligned with other shareholders. However, on some occasions too much power is concentrated within this group.

Our most exact data indicates that insiders own less than 1% of QUALCOMM Incorporated. Being so large, we would not expect insiders to own a large proportion of the stock. Collectively, they own US$150m of stock. It is good to see board members owning shares, but it might be worth checking if those insiders have been buying.

General Public Ownership

With a 25% ownership, the general public, mostly comprising of individual investors, have some degree of sway over QUALCOMM. This size of ownership, while considerable, may not be enough to change company policy if the decision is not in sync with other large shareholders.

Next Steps:

It's always worth thinking about the different groups who own shares in a company. But to understand QUALCOMM better, we need to consider many other factors. Take risks for example - QUALCOMM has 3 warning signs (and 1 which can't be ignored) we think you should know about.
