China and Huawei need US more than America needs them in 5G wireless race, say industry insiders

President Donald Trump’s new order effectively blacklisting Huawei, the Chinese telecommunications networking equipment maker and smartphone giant, from the U.S. market will not hurt America in the race to build out next-generation 5G wireless technology, a well-known CEO and a top telecom investment banker who did not want to be identified told CNBC on Friday.

CNBC’s Joe Kernen reported on two emails he received from a “well-known CEO” and a “really smart telecom investment banker,” as the discussion on “Squawk Box ” turned to the president’s latest salvo in the U.S.-China trade war, a national emergency declaration over threats against American technology.

The move announced Wednesday states, among other requirements, that U.S. firms must seek government approval before doing business with Huawei. The Trump administration alleges that Huawei poses a national security threat because of close ties to the communist Chinese government.

SoftBank leads $484 million investment in online travel start-up GetYourGuide

German online travel start-up GetYourGuide has raised $484 million in an investment led by SoftBank’s $100 billion Vision Fund.

The company, which lets people book tickets for tours and other activities abroad, said Thursday that it will spend the fresh cash on expanding further internationally and adding more recreation options to its platform.

It says it’s now a unicorn company, with a valuation crossing $1 billion, although it declined to comment on its exact market value. That sees it join the ranks of firms like Germany’s N26 and Britain’s Deliveroo as it enters into Europe’s unicorn club.

Based in Berlin, GetYourGuide is a little different to more commonly-used travel sites. Whereas platforms like TripAdvisor and Expedia show customers price comparisons for hotel bookings and flight fares, GetYourGuide only lists things for holidaymakers to do upon arrival.

GetYourGuide CEO Johannes Reck says the firm is tapping into the trend of consumers caring more about in-destination “experiences” rather than “commodity items” like flights and hotels. It has sold more than 25 million tickets to users across 170 countries since it was founded in 2009.

“With this fundraise we can suddenly play in the big leagues of the worldwide leading travel companies, and we can invest with a time horizon of not one or two years but 10 or 20,” Reck told CNBC in a phone interview.

Reck added that his start-up is looking to offer more vacation activities to its app, highlighting events, music and transportation as potential areas it could explore.

“There’s so much that we can still do on GetYourGuide beyond the core product set that we have right now,” he said.

Buffett says Occidental Petroleum investment is a bet on oil prices over the long term

Buffett says Occidental Petroleum investment is a bet on oil prices over the long term

Billionaire investor Warren Buffett said Monday that Berkshire Hathaway’s $10 billion investment in Occidental Petroleum is a bet on oil prices over the long term.

“It’s also a bet on the fact that the Permian Basin is what it is cracked up to be,” the chairman and CEO Berkshire told CNBC’s Becky Quick. But “oil prices will determine whether almost any oil stock is a good investment over time.”

“If [oil] goes way up, you make a lot of money,” he added.

Occidental revealed on Tuesday that Berkshire had committed to invest $10 billion in the company to help fund its proposed acquisition of Anadarko Petroleum. Berkshire would make the investment by purchasing 100,000 shares of preferred stock, which pays out an 8% annual dividend.

Buffett was willing to invest $20 billion to help Occidental seal the deal, sources told CNBC’s David Faber. Occidental revised its bid to purchase Anadarko after the international oil and gas driller agreed to sell its business to Chevron last month for $65 a share in a 75% stock and 25% cash deal worth $50 billion including debt.

Asked why Berkshire wouldn’t just buy Anadarko itself, Buffett said, “That might have happened if Anadarko came to us, but we wouldn’t jump into some other deal that we heard about from somebody else coming to us seeking financing.”

Later in the interview, longtime investing partner and vice chairman Charlie Munger responded to the question as well, saying, “Nobody asked us to.”

Buffett added he previously never had any sort of communication with Anadarko.

The Oracle of Omaha appeared on “Squawk Box” for a wide-ranging interview on Monday, following the weekend festivities at Berkshire Hathaway’s annual shareholder meeting.

At the Sohn Investment Conference in Manhattan on Monday, Greenlight Capital founder and president David Einhorn said Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s promises about Tesla’s self-driving vehicles amounted to “a lot of horse—t.”

Greenlight is famously short shares in the electric car maker, and Einhorn is regarded as one of the most prominent and vocal critics of Musk as well.

Last year, Einhorn and Musk clashed over Greenlight’s short position in 2018, after the hedge fund suffered losses from Tesla’s rising share price in the second quarter. After that clash, Musk fans at Chubbies, a mens’ apparel business, sent a box of short-shorts to Einhorn.

Buffett says Berkshire is sticking with Apple and he’s pleased with latest earnings report

Berkshire Hathaway is sticking with its sizable Apple stake, Warren Buffett said. “We haven’t changed our [Apple] holdings,” Buffett told CNBC’s Becky Quick on Thursday, on the eve of the kickoff of Berkshire Hathaway’s annual shareholder meeting in Omaha this weekend.

Buffett says Berkshire is sticking with Apple and he's pleased with latest earnings report

Berkshire Hathaway is sticking with its sizable Apple stake, Warren Buffett said.

“We haven’t changed our [Apple] holdings,” Buffett told CNBC’s Becky Quick on Thursday, on the eve of the kickoff of Berkshire Hathaway’s annual shareholder meeting in Omaha this weekend.

Apple shares are up more than 32% this year, including a boost from the iPhone maker’s better-than-expected first-quarter earnings report this week.

“I was pleased with what they reported,” Buffett said, while noting he never makes investment decisions based on a single quarterly report. “What they talked about and reported is consistent with the reason we own $50 billion-plus of Apple.”

Berkshire owned more than $40 billion worth of the tech giant as of end of last year, according to its 2018 annual letter. The conglomerate decreased its stake in Apple by nearly 3 million shares in the fourth quarter of 2018, but Buffett said at the time that the selling wasn’t under his direction.

“Unless — and I have no reason to think this is true — but there’s one fellow that owns a little over 1% of our holdings in the office and I don’t see what he does every day. I have no reason to think he’s bought or sold Apple,” Buffett added Thursday.

The “Oracle of Omaha” first announced Berkshire’s investment in Apple in February 2017 despite Chairman Buffett’s usual aversion to tech stocks. He told CNBC at the time that he clearly likes Apple, and “we buy them to hold.”

Buffett also told CNBC on Thursday that Berkshire has been buying shares of Amazon.

Tens of thousands of investors are heading to Omaha for the annual shareholder meeting on Saturday to hear from Buffett about his succession plan, investment strategy and market outlook.

MBA students face off in challenge to create the next best impact investing idea

A team of five graduate business students from the University of Vermont traveled to Philadelphia this week to put an impact investing project they have been working on to the test. The trip, which coincided with finals, was a success. The students — Maura Kalil, Emily Klein, Andrew Mallory, Peter Seltzer and Alyssa Stankiewicz — took the top prize in the Total Impact Portfolio Challenge. The competition was put together by Bank of America, the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton Social Impact Initiative, and the Good Capital Project.

The competition pitted 26 teams of graduate student teams from 19 schools against each other with one purpose: to come up with a unique investment take on impact investing. The inaugural competition issued a challenge to students: to come up with an impact investing strategy for either a single family office with $100 million or a family foundation with $25 million. The competitors — including finalist teams from Boston University, Columbia University, Fordham University, University of Vermont and Yale University — came up with ideas that upended traditional notions about impact investing, according to the organizers. All of the teams worked with about 50 mentors from Bank of America, including wealth advisors, portfolio managers and sustainability experts. “The key takeaway is that there are many ways in which you can integrate ESG [environmental, social and governance] and impact,” said Sharadiya Dasgupta, managing director at Good Capital Project. “That is one thing practitioners should learn from this exercise.”

The winning team came up with a portfolio for a family office with $100 million through a mix of investments including community development loan funds and private debt impact funds. It also included direct investments in farmland, timber and a holding company. The team also came up with its own screen for ESG funds, called SI-MBA after their own MBA program, that evaluated how well their investments aligned with the issues most material to the companies they invest in. At the competition event on Wednesday, the University of Vermont team presented their concept at the end of the day. That gave them the opportunity to listen to other teams’ projects, they said, and feel validated that they were on the right track, they said. “I could feel the excitement and the interest in the ideas that we’re bringing as students and as millennials and people who are going to be working in this space soon,” Klein said.

The competition is evidence that impact investing is being embraced in schools, professionals involved in the project said. “Students these days are embracing responsible capitalism,” said Jackie VanderBrug, head of sustainable and impact investment strategy in the chief investment office for Merrill and Bank of America Private Bank. “They are looking for how does information like environmental, social and governance data support them in making better investment decisions.”

Its costs $73,160 a year to go to MIT—but here’s how much students actually pay

Over the past several decades, the cost of attending college — any type of college — has increased significantly. According to the College Board’s 2018 2018 Trends in College Pricing Report, from 1988 to 2018, sticker prices tripled at public four-year schools and doubled at public two-year and private non-profit four-year schools.

Its costs $73,160 a year to go to MIT—but here's how much students actually pay

Over the past several decades, the cost of attending college — any type of college — has increased significantly.

According to the College Board’s 2018 2018 Trends in College Pricing Report, from 1988 to 2018, sticker prices tripled at public four-year schools and doubled at public two-year and private non-profit four-year schools.

Despite these costs, earning a four-year degree — especially at a top-ranking university — continues to be a high-yield investment. In 2018, college graduates earned weekly wages that were 80 percent higher than those of high school graduates.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is widely regarded as one of the most prestigious schools in the world and its graduates earn some of the highest salaries. According to an analysis from salary comparison site PayScale, MIT graduates are the second highest-earning workers in the country, with early-career salaries of about $83,600 on average and mid-career salaries of about $150,400 on average.

But earning an MIT diploma requires meeting rigorous academic standards and a significant financial investment. Today, the cost of attending MIT is about $73,160 per year. Exactly how much student spends earning an MIT diploma however, can vary dramatically and many students end up paying far less.
