The latest stock-market rally has further increased the dominance of the top-seven companies in the S&P 500. Illustration by Alexandra Citrin-Safadi/WSJAs in the eponymous 1960s Western, the so-called “Magnificent Seven” stocks keep on winning. The S&P 500 is in a bull market, fueled by soft inflation data in the U.S. and Europe and the widespread belief that interest rates will start coming down early next year. Yet the stock market has become so top-heavy that speaking of a “bull market” carries less meaning than before. Without Apple , Microsoft , Alphabet , , Nvidia , Tesla and Meta Platforms—the high-growth, technology-related companies that analysts have dubbed the “Magnificent Seven”—the S&P 500 would only be up 9% this year, rather than 19%.

Spotify’s Layoff Memo and the Art of Delivering Bad News
  + stars: | 2023-12-05 | by ( Chip Cutter | )   time to read: 1 min
Daniel Ek, founder and CEO of Spotify, at an event in New York in October. It has become a staple of the modern corporate downsizing: the public CEO layoff letter. Before a company cuts workers, many executives send an all-staff email explaining what went wrong. Then the company typically shares it online. Such missives, sent this year at companies including Meta, Salesforce and Amazon, often follow a familiar structure, providing some rationale for the job cuts while saying an often-awkward goodbye to departing staffers.

Airbnb Chief Financial Officer Dave Stephenson will transition into a newly created chief business officer role at the company. Airbnb Chief Financial Officer Dave Stephenson, who helped guide the company through Covid-19 tumult and an initial public offering, will transition into a newly created chief business officer role, Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky said in a Tuesday note to employees viewed by CNBC. Chesky said Stephenson's new role would also mark an "inflection point" for Airbnb, where the business would begin to focus on growth across existing and new businesses. "As Chief Business Officer, Dave will be across all aspects of our strategy to expand beyond the core," Chesky wrote. Before joining Airbnb, Stephenson was finance chief at Amazon's Worldwide Consumer unit.

Just nine months after closing its deal to acquire One Medical, Amazon is exerting more control over the primary care provider's employee pay. Prior to the Amazon acquisition, One Medical gave stock grants without baking in any growth assumptions. Like One Medical, Amazon reinforces this through its competitive total compensation program which, for corporate employees, typically includes base pay and restricted stock units (RSUs). As One Medical is now part of Amazon and can no longer grant employees One Medical stock, we are transitioning employees to Amazon's stock-based compensation model. Amazon's pay policy has long been a source of frustration for many employees.

CVS will change the way it prices drugs
  + stars: | 2023-12-05 | by ( Tami Luhby | Nathaniel Meyersohn | )   time to read: +4 min
New York CNN —CVS is revamping the way it reimburses its pharmacies for prescription medications, a move that could make prescription drug pricing simpler and change how much consumers pay for their medicines. It’s a similar model to the one entrepreneur Mark Cuban is pushing with his Cost Plus Drugs company. This shift in payment models could change the cost of prescription drugs for some patients, although it will not necessarily make all medicine cost less. Some drugs may cost less, while others might rise in price, CVS executives said. Americans spend around $1,200 a year on average for prescription drugs — more than any other country — according to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.

REUTERS/Fabian Bimmer/File Photo Acquire Licensing RightsLONDON, Dec 5 (Reuters) - Amazon (AMZN.O) has told Britain's antitrust authority its rival Microsoft (MSFT.O) uses business practices that restrict customer choice in the cloud computing market, the second major company to criticise the U.S. tech giant's operations. Britain's Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) launched an investigation into the country’s cloud computing industry in October, following a referral from media regulator Ofcom that highlighted Amazon and Microsoft’s dominance of the market. “To use many of Microsoft’s software products with these other cloud services providers, a customer must purchase a separate license even if they already own the software,” Amazon said. In its own submission to the CMA, Microsoft said Britain's cloud computing market remained competitive. "There are many sources of competition in the cloud market in the UK.

What is 'stack ranking?' "Stack ranking" is an employee rating system popularized by executive Jack Welch in the 1980s during his time as CEO of GE. Does stack ranking work? And in many cases, having a stack ranking system is actually helpful, because there's an objective, collaborative process to evaluating employees," he said. Why is stack ranking controversial?

A requirement that Amazon (AMZN.O), Alphabet's (GOOGL.O) Google, Microsoft (MSFT.O) and other non-EU cloud providers set up a joint venture with an EU-based company to qualify for the EU cybersecurity label has triggered criticism from some EU countries and foreign vendors.

Three weeks after OpenAI's board briefly pushed out CEO Sam Altman without providing a specific reason for its decision, former director Reid Hoffman says he's still puzzled by what took place and why. He stepped down from OpenAI's board in March and said he hasn't spoken with any of the board members, though he said he did communicate with Altman. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella offered to hire Altman, OpenAI president Greg Brockman and their colleagues in a new advanced AI research group.
