We asked 25 female founders who they'd pick as Uber's next CEO — here's what they told us

It looks like the next CEO of Uber will be a man.

According to a weekend report by Recode, there are only 4 candidates on Uber’s shortlist, and none of them are women.

To be fair, Uber’s board of directors considered several women, but they didn’t want the job. Most recently, HP Enterprise CEO Meg Whitman publicly announced she wouldn’t be taking the job, after reports emerged that she had been talking to Uber and offering advice.

It’s a hard sell, given Uber’s cultural and regulatory challenges and its massive ongoing losses. Nonetheless, it seems hard to believe that Uber couldn’t find any women to take the job. So we asked dozens of female tech company founders to find out who they’d like to see in the top spot. 25 responded.

The vast majority voted for fellow women, which would be a symbolic choice for a company that is grappling with its “bro” culture.

Here are their top picks:

Tech's spending spree shouldn't worry investors … yet

Tech earnings dominated the agenda last week and one theme ran through the major reports: the rising spending from the giants.

Google parent Alphabet reported traffic acquisition costs (TAC), a key metric that relates to how much the company pays to draw people to its various properties, rose above 28 percent to over $5 billion. This rise in cost was enough to send Alphabet shares down sharply in after-hours trade on Monday last week.

Amazon was a similar story. Its second-quarter earnings came in at 40 cents per share versus $1.42 per share expected, mainly because the e-commerce giant boosted investment. Spending on technology and content for example rose 43 percent year-on-year in the quarter. Amazon shares fell after-hours.

Facebook on the other hand reduced its forecast for its spending increase, which excited investors.

To me, the share price falls looked like a chance for investors to take profit on some tech stocks that have seen a stunning rally this year. But there’s definitely some concern that costs could spiral out of control without any substantial return on profit.

BP profits hit by Angola write-off, CEO says it's preparing for 'new oil price environment'

BP beat analyst expectations on Tuesday, despite profits more than halving from the first three months of the year after a hefty charge from an unsuccessful project in Angola.

Here are some of the highlights from the earnings:

Underlying replacement cost profit, used as a proxy for net profit, $684 million in the second quarter vs. expected $500 million from a company-provided consensus.

Revenue of $57.37 billion versus $50.62 billion expected by Thomson Reuters analysts’ consensus.

The British oil giant’s profits were down from $1.5 billion in the first quarter of 2017 and lower than the $720 million reported over the same period in 2016.

“We continue to position BP for the new oil price environment, with a continued tight focus on costs, efficiency and discipline in capital spending,” Bob Dudley, chief executive officer at BP, said in a statement shortly after the second-quarter results were announced.

BP’s results were tainted by a $750 million write-down, mainly in connection with its stalled project in Angola. The company relinquished its 50 percent stake in a block off the coast of the southern African country because it was adjudged to no longer be commercially attractive.

European markets edge slightly higher on earnings; BP up 2.7%

The pan-European Stoxx 600 edged up 0.12 percent during early morning deals with most sectors and major bourses pointing in opposite directions.

European markets edge slightly higher on earnings; BP up 2.7%

The pan-European Stoxx 600 edged up 0.12 percent during early morning deals with most sectors and major bourses pointing in opposite directions. Swiss stock markets were closed due to a national holiday.

Oil and gas stocks were the top performers shortly after the opening bell, up 0.81 percent, on better-than-expected earnings news. BP surpassed analyst expectations on Tuesday, despite profits more than halving from the first three months of the year after a hefty charge from an unsuccessful project in Angola. Its shares were more than 2 percent higher.

British aircraft engine maker Rolls-Royce Holdings posted a first-half net profit on Tuesday, driven by an uptick in performance from its civil aerospace sector. Its shares surged towards the top of the benchmark, up over 6 percent in early morning deals.

Sticking with British aircraft parts makers, Meggitt reported an increase in organic revenue on Tuesday after the company was supported by currency moves and civil aerospace demand in the first half of the year. However, its underlying profit margin slipped to 18 percent amid development costs. Its shares fell over 1.5 percent on the news.

In the U.S., White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci was fired on Monday after fewer than 10 days in the post. The surprise announcement came after a series of turbulent media appearances by the former Wall Street financier, capped off by a profanity-laced tirade to a New Yorker journalist last week.

Meanwhile, staff working in the parlors, maintenance and security departments at the Bank of England are set to begin a three-day strike on Tuesday.
