From @Breakingviews: Gymnasts know that failing to fully commit to a move increases the chances of landing face-first. Noel Quinn, boss of $124 billion HSBC, risks something similar with his half-hearted jump further into Asia, writes @LiamWardProud https://t.co/iU6jtS0LIh

It should be a bigger story that Rupert Murdoch just used his control of the media in Australia to pressure the government into a dubious scheme whereby American tech companies are now forced to pay for *linking* to Australian news websites.

From @Breakingviews: Vivendi may hand 60% of Universal Music to investors. Eliminating a discount on the French group’s shares could unlock 7 billion euros of value. But controlling shareholder Vincent Bolloré benefits most, writes @LiamWardProud https://t.co/3cXVDDXr8a

Vivendi is spinning off 60% of $40 billion label Universal Music, home to Taylor Swift. That will unlock value for investors, but the canny plan also cements tycoon Vincent Bolloré’s grip on power, says @LiamWardProud https://t.co/rozvW9dcaB

Marketplace middlemen like $6 billion Virtu Financial seemed like the main winners as Reddit-using punters poured cash into shorted stocks like GameStop. But appearances can be deceptive, writes @LiamWardProud: https://t.co/QgXIzSadT0 https://t.co/4KQZ4KcUQd

From @Breakingviews: Ex-finance minister George Osborne is in many ways an odd hire for the advisory firm boutique Robey Warshaw. Yet political savvy is ever more critical in M&A given state meddling, @LiamWardProud writes https://t.co/u7YPslLDCh

Retail investors have found a neat trick: pile into heavily shorted stocks, forcing bearish hedge funds to buy and sending prices up. But the danger is that the squeezers get stuck with exposure to dicey companies, says @LiamWardProud https://t.co/D1qZkCwlPS

This means Handelsblatt wasn't entirely wrong - the estimated efficacy in over-65s is *6.3 per cent*. But what the story missed is that this figure is completely useless. They just don't have enough data to say anything meaningful. https://t.co/oinzhHTLVG

Here it is: the crucial table showing Germany's calculations on the AstraZeneca vaccine's efficacy in over-65s. And good God, look at that confidence interval! For over-65s there was only one infection in the treatment group and one in the placebo group. https://t.co/edUPhaL7sS

More empirical evidence: the vast majority of the drop in economic activity in the COVID19 crisis is due to "individuals’ voluntary decisions to disengage from commerce rather than government-imposed restrictions on activity": https://t.co/45pafIuRbQ https://t.co/6mD5dT9xuA
