Tilson Not A Fan Of UNIS Or Lumber Liquidators, But Likes Starbucks
Excerpted from an email which Whitney Tilson just sent to investors 1) I had hoped to lead this email with something other than Lumber Liquidators Holdings Inc (NYSE:LL), so was going to highlight the article I published yesterday, How Wall Street Enables Stock Promotions: A Case Study Of Jefferies And Unilife, about another one of my short positions (I only have seven). But then Lumber Liquidators (LL) CEO, Robert Lynch, suddenly and unexpectedly resigned this morning, causing the stock to decline 16.5% today to a 3+ year low, so I had to write yet another article commenting on it (my 16th; all are posted at: www.tilsonfunds.com/LLTilsonarticles.pdf).

Remarks before the 2015 Baruch College Financial Reporting Conference by James Schnurr, SEC Chief Accountant
Good morning and thank you for the introduction. I am happy to be with you today and it is my pleasure to share the stage with Jim Kroeker, who certainly has a unique perspective having served as the SEC Chief Accountant prior to becoming the Vice Chairman of the FASB.[1] As I have previously stated, when I arrived at the Commission last October, Chair White asked me to make a recommendation to her as to what action, if any, the Commission should take regarding the further incorporation of IFRS[2] into the U.S. capital markets. In December, I gave a speech that mentioned a potential alternative of allowing domestic issuers to provide IFRS-based information as a supplement to U.S. GAAP[3] financial statements without requiring reconciliation. I thought it would be helpful to spend a few minutes this morning providing you with a brief update on some of the recent activities of OCA,[4] as well as some of the current thinking with respect to convergence and IFRS.

On Wednesday, Nov. 19, Baruch College welcomed Dr. Kenneth J. Arrow to express his views of business ethics and the role they play in the economic system. Arrow is currently a professor at Stanford University and is best known for his extensive research in various theories of economics. His educational career consists of an undergraduate degree from City College, and both a master’s degree and doctorate from Columbia University. He won the Nobel Prize in 1972 for his economic models of economic equilibrium. Before his economic success, however, Arrow was a meteorologist in the U.S. Air Corps. The Nobel Prize-winning economist began the event by conducting a typical lecture followed by a question and answer session, in which the audience had the opportunity to expand on specific points they wanted further addressed. The event concluded with light refreshments, giving attendees the opportunity to discuss the subject further with Arrow.
