Why the golden age of remote work may be coming to an end
  + stars: | 2023-11-10 | by ( Anuz Thapa | )   time to read: +1 min
Finding fully remote work is getting challenging. "Some of the pushback remote work is driven by concerns about productivity," said Kory Kantenga, senior economist at LinkedIn. During the pandemic, remote work became the darling of the corporate world, and companies going fully remote became the new normal. "Remote work was thrust upon us basically by the pandemic," said Nicholas Bloom, professor of economics at Stanford University. "Before the pandemic, remote work was pretty rare.

"It could certainly happen if one was focused on one type of demographic and the other, another type of demographic," Liberty Media Chairman John Malone told CNBC's David Faber in an interview that aired Thursday. "Broadcast continues to survive, but is under real pressure as Big Tech competes for sports," Malone told CNBC. Disney already offers a three-way bundle plan of Hulu, Disney+ and ESPN+, which Disney owns. "The streaming version with ads will be part of the cable bundle," Malone, a former Charter board member, told CNBC. I would much rather see the cable companies be distributors of streaming in bundles and packages, because the two are kind of tied to the hip."

Club holding Broadcom 's (AVGO) investment prospects look bright – with or without cloud software maker VMWare (VMW) under its corporate roof. For now, though, the companies remain apart after Broadcom's planned $61 billion takeover of VMWare did not close Monday, as previously scheduled. AVGO YTD mountain Broadcom YTD With VMWare, Broadcom would be a company with sales split roughly 50-50 between its traditional semiconductor division — an artificial intelligence beneficiary — and software, which typically is higher-margin revenue. Without VMWare, Broadcom would have freed up its capacity to reward shareholders in a different, but still meaningful, way. Even with the buyback silver lining, our hope is Broadcom completes the VMWare deal because it should boost Broadcom's earnings over time.

A change in the way activist and private equity investors are viewed is underway, Corvex Management founder Keith Meister said Tuesday. Corporate raider is a term used to refer to aggressive activist investors. "The reason it hasn't happened more quickly is because the amazing large private equity funds have been victims of their own successes," Meister said. Activist investors, which include Trian's Nelson Peltz, can agitate for a wide variety of changes including selling off underperforming or undervalued businesses or replacing management teams. Private equity investors, meanwhile, usually build a controlling stake in a company, with the aim of taking it private and making it more valuable before selling it for a profit.

To be sure, even with Monday's advance, oil prices remain well off their late September peaks.

On Monday, natural gas futures rose another 1%, to around $3.37 per million British thermal units. Last week, natural gas surged 14% to reach its highest price since late January.
