Mark Zuckerberg has sold $296 million worth of Facebook shares in August

Mark Zuckerberg has been on a selling spree in August, unloading nearly 1.6 million shares of Facebook worth nearly $296 million.

Mark Zuckerberg has sold $296 million worth of Facebook shares in August

Mark Zuckerberg has been on a selling spree in August, unloading nearly 1.6 million shares of Facebook worth nearly $296 million.

Prior to this month, the Facebook co-founder and CEO hadn’t sold shares since April. He’s now sold 2.9 million shares this year worth more than $526 million. Zuckerberg still owns over 375 million Facebook shares with a current value of over $68 billion, making him the fifth-richest person in the world, behind Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Bernard Arnault and Warren Buffett.

Zuckerberg, 35, regularly sells parts of his Facebook fortune to fund the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, the philanthropic organization he runs with his wife, Priscilla Chan. CZI funds programs in science and education as well as social issues focused on criminal justice reform, housing affordability and immigration reform.

According to the filings, Zuckerberg’s share sales are part of a 10b5-1 plan, a rule established by the Securities and Exchange Commission that allows public company insiders to sell a predetermined amount of stock at set periods of time. Facebook’s dual-class share structure allows Zuckerberg to retain voting control over the company’s big decisions even as he sells a significant portion of his stake.

While his selling activity picked up in August, he’s still well off the pace from last year, when Zuckerberg sold nearly 28.9 million shares for more than $5.3 billion. In late 2017, Zuckerberg said he planned to sell up to 75 million shares, worth more than $12 billion at the time, by March of this year.

Facebook shares were trading down by less than 1% on Thursday at $182.11.

Noble was three years behind Obama at Punahou and wore the same No. 23 jersey, still being used by the team, while playing junior varsity basketball. When the team ordered new uniforms, he saved the jersey he had worn, which bore the lucky number famously worn by Michael Jordan and Lebron James. It was only later that he made the connection to Obama. “Peter worked for the athletic department during summers, and the only reason he kept this particular jersey was because he wore No. 23 on the JV team,” Ivy says. “He kept it and then many decades later he saw a picture of President Obama, they put up a picture of him playing basketball at Punahou, and he noticed it was the same No. 23 that he had in his closet and put two [and] two together.” The authentication process took longer than usual, given this is a high school jersey and the auction house is more accustomed to handling professional apparel. To verify the item, the auction house used several methods, including photo matching to line up comparisons with what Obama wore (representatives also reached out to Obama, but received no reply.) Ivy says the auction house is very confident in the uniform’s authenticity, and it’s auction site listed it boldly as “the most important basketball jersey that exists.”

This woman sold her app for $85 million — here's the common mistake she sees in start-ups

Mette Lykke

Building a high-value business takes patience and entrepreneurs shouldn’t believe that start-ups reach multi-million-dollar valuations overnight, a successful Danish businesswoman has warned. When it comes to growing a start-up, Mette Lykke, CEO of food waste organization Too Good To Go, speaks from experience. She co-founded fitness app Endomondo in 2007, developing the company for almost a decade before it gained enough interest to be acquired by American firm Under Armour. Endomondo was sold to the U.S. athleticwear brand in 2015 for $85 million, and Lykke stayed on as its CEO until 2017.

According to Lykke, who began her career as a management consultant, a business can only experience vast growth rates if the people at its reins exercise what she calls “patient impatience.” “Every day you have to push (yourself) and you have to be willing to do that for quite a while,” she said. “I think a lot of stories about start-ups give the impression that two guys start a company in a basement and boom, two years later they change the world. That’s just not how it works – it takes years, so working hard every day is crucial.”

Be clear on your purpose

For the past two years, Lykke has been the CEO of Too Good To Go — an organization that works with restaurants and food retailers to tackle waste by selling food at a discounted price. The app has 11 million users and works with 22,000 stores across 11 countries. Her involvement with the company began around 9 months after the service was launched, when a friend who knew its founders showed her the app. “I thought it was such a cool concept,” she told CNBC. “I got invited to invest and then was asked to help the founders run the business.” She said her core driving force when it came to work was being part of a company that had a strong purpose and could make a real impact. “I work a lot and put everything into it, so I want to do something that really matters,” she explained. “My first company was designed to make fitness fun, and now I have an even stronger purpose in tackling food waste. I just hadn’t realized the scale of this problem, but it had always been natural to me not to throw away food.” Entrepreneurs looking to grow a company needed to follow her lead and work on something that they felt was meaningful, Lykke added. “Make sure you’re really, really passionate about what you do — that’s fundamental,” she said. “There are going to be days and nights where, if you don’t have that passion, it’s going to be too difficult.”

As well as being passionate about their business, start-up founders needed to build a team who believed in the purpose of the company. “Being clear about the company’s vision is important, (but) the people you find for your team need to believe what you believe — it’s important to establish that team really early on,” Lykke told CNBC. She noted that having a strong ethical purpose was also a big competitive advantage, helping to attract both talented employees and investors.

Arizona Tea maker enters the cannabis market

Marijuana products will soon hit the masses, as the maker of Arizona Tea enters the cannabis market, starting with vape pens and THC-infused gummies.

Privately held Arizona Beverage announced Tuesday that it reached a licensing deal with Dixie Brands, which makes and sells drinks, chocolates, gummies and topical creams that are laced with marijuana. Through the partnership, Dixie, which operates in six U.S. states, will manufacture and distribute products branded with Arizona’s name. The products will be sold through licensed dispensaries.

The deal also gives Arizona the right to buy a stake of up to $10 million in the cannabis company.

Arizona Beverage’s namesake iced teas are a staple at convenience stores and supermarkets around the country, including 7/11s, Walmarts, and Walgreens, which might indicate marijuana products are edging closer to the mainstream. The agreement is one of the first examples of a major consumer company entering the cannabis market.

“The cannabis market is an important emerging category, and we’ve maintained our independence as a private business to be positioned to lead and seize generation-defining opportunities exactly like this one,” said Don Vultaggio, chairman of Arizona Beverages in a press release. “The cannabis category is an ideal space to bring the flavor and fun of AriZona into new and exciting products.”

Other beverage brands have also been dipping their toes into the marijuana space. In 2017, Corona beer maker Constellation Brands announced a near 10% stake in Canopy Growth Corporation, the world’s largest publicly traded cannabis company, and it increased the investment last year by $4 billion. California-based Lagunitas Brewing, owned by Heineken, also launched cannabis-infused sparkling water to be sold in select California locations.

However, as a private company, Arizona may have more leeway to take this step. Although marijuana is legal for recreational use in 11 states and for medical use in more than 30 states, it remains prohibited by federal law. This means it can’t be transported across state lines. Profits from marijuana sales also can be restricted from banks.

70% of shoes sold in the US comes from China. With new tariffs, the industry braces for a hit.

The U.S. footwear industry is one of the biggest victims in an escalating trade war with China. A whopping 70% of shoes sold in the U.S. comes from China, according to the Footwear Distributors & Retailers of America, an industry organization with more than 500 members including Walmart, Nike, Crocs and Steven Madden. Footwear imported from China is already being hit with upwards of 67% duties, FDRA said. Nike, for example, made 47% of its shoes in Vietnam in fiscal 2018, according to its latest

70% of shoes sold in the US comes from China. With new tariffs, the industry braces for a hit.

The U.S. footwear industry is one of the biggest victims in an escalating trade war with China.

President Donald Trump on Thursday announced another round of tariffs on the roughly $300 billion of Chinese goods that hadn’t already been targeted by American levies, which will take effect on Sept. 1. It will impact apparel, home textiles like bedding and shoes — among other consumer goods.

Shoe manufacturers in particular are bracing to take a major hit, with reality setting in that after months of on-and-off talks between these U.S. and China, these tariffs are set to take effect. A whopping 70% of shoes sold in the U.S. comes from China, according to the Footwear Distributors & Retailers of America, an industry organization with more than 500 members including Walmart, Nike, Crocs and Steven Madden. Footwear imported from China is already being hit with upwards of 67% duties, FDRA said.

“The consumer won’t be able to hide,” FDRA President and CEO Matt Priest said in an interview. “Even if it’s 10%, it’s death by a thousand cuts.”

In May, more than 170 shoe retailers and brands — including Under Armour, Ugg and Foot Locker — penned a letter to Trump asking him not to raise tariffs on footwear, saying at the time: “These tariffs would mean some working American families could pay a nearly 100% duty on their shoes.” (Trump back in May was considering a 25% tariff hike.)

FDRA has calculated that a popular type of canvas “skate” sneaker could increase in price to $58.69 from $49.99 with an additional 10% tariff. The price of a typical hunting boot could jump to $222.27 from $190. And a popular performance running shoe could rise to $187.50 from $150.

Companies like Nike, Under Armour and Puma have steadily been decreasing their reliance on China, shifting resources to places like Vietnam. Still, the U.S. imported $11.4 billion worth of footwear from China last year, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, making it an industry incredibly reliant on the country for its cheap, skilled labor.

Nike, for example, made 47% of its shoes in Vietnam in fiscal 2018, according to its latest annual report. It made 26% in China and 21% in Indonesia.

Adidas says Vietnam is its largest sourcing country, with 42% of volume coming from there. In 2018 it did about 18% of volume in China, down 1% from 2017 levels, according to SEC filings.

Under Armour says 87% of its footwear products in 2018 were manufactured by five main contract manufacturers, operating mostly in China, Vietnam and Indonesia.

According to Priest, it’s discount retailers like Walmart that remain particularly dependent on China for footwear production. “10% [tariffs are] going to create a lot of pain, particularly for companies that serve low-cost customers.”

A company like Walmart, he said, will have a more difficult time absorbing the tariffs along its supply chain, thus shoppers will have to bear more of that burden. Walmart declined to comment.

Meanwhile, another impact of the new tariffs could be more footwear businesses going under. The sector has already been having a rough ride.

Payless ShoeSource was a popular wholesale channel for many shoe brands, but it filed for bankruptcy in February and shut all of its 2,500 stores. Brands like Nine West, Rockport and The Walking Co. filed for bankruptcy in 2018. The industry hasn’t been immune to more shoppers buying footwear online and from places like Zappos. And with shoppers tastes’ evolving so quickly, like with clothing, there’s a revolving door of shoe brands coming and going out of fashion.

“The short term is going to be retail ugly,” Rick Helfenbein, CEO of the American Apparel and Footwear Association, told CNBC’s “Closing Bell” on Thursday. “We don’t have a place to go. You can’t move this mountain of merchandise so quickly.”

“The message from the [Trump] administration is, ‘Get out of China.’ The problem is we can’t do it as fast as they would like us to do it. So we are going to stay there … and fight it out.”

Intel sold its smartphone modem business to Apple, but it says it will still be a big player in 5G

Intel sold its smartphone modem business to Apple, but the chipmaker’s CEO said Wednesday that his company will still be a big player in the 5G space.

5G refers to next generation of mobile networking that promises super-fast data speeds with the ability to support new technologies like driverless cars. Apple bought the majority of Intel’s modem business for $1 billion, including technology related to the development of the 5G modems required for devices to connect to the new networks.

Intel still has the option to develop 5G chips for non-smartphone products.

Apple made the move in order to develop its own in-house 5G modems rather than rely on Qualcomm, a company with which the iPhone maker has had a fraught history.

But the move is also a positive for Intel, according to CEO Bob Swan, who said the company can now focus on 5G in other areas.

Speaking with CNBC, Swan explained the rationale behind selling off the modem business: 5G modems, he said, were not an area that would differentiate growth for the industry. And with only one customer — Apple — retaining the business would not provide attractive returns, he added.

“So we doubled down on 5G networks where we think there’s real opportunities and last week we announced the sale of the 5G smartphone modem to Apple. But we also retained access to the technologies in the event that we need a 5G modem for non-smartphone applications, like a PC or an automobile,” Swan said.

Harry Potter book purchased for $1 just sold for nearly $35,000—on J.K. Rowling's birthday

A rare first-edition hard copy of J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” sold for £28,500 ($34,865) to a private collector at a U.K. auction in Staffordshire. It’s one of just 500 copies in the first print run.

The sale took place July 31, which also happens to be Rowling’s — and Harry Potter’s — birthday.

“Three phone bidders battled it out,” Hansons Auctioneers, the auction house that conducted the sale, tweeted this morning.

“I was called to a client’s house near Stafford to value three boxes of books, and there it was — the Holy Grail of Harry Potter books,” Jim Spencer, a books expert at Hansons, said in a news release.

The book was originally purchased by an office worker for £1 ($1.22) at a tabletop sale.

“I bought the book along with three or four others to read on holiday about 20 years ago,” the vendor, who wished to remain anonymous, told Hansons. “I thought nothing of it at the time. I read the book — in fact, I’ve read all the Harry Potter series — and then put it away in a cupboard for years.”

“This book is J.K. Rowling’s first book and first in the Harry Potter series,” Spencer said in a BBC interview. “She couldn’t get a publishing deal. When she finally did, only 500 were printed — and 300 of them went to the library. Everyone has heard of this book. It has won the hearts and imaginations of the young and the old.”

Correction: This story was updated to reflect the correct sale price in U.S. dollars.
