  1. In reading thru the financial results from Prudential they still seem pretty solid to me. I own a huge amount of their 6.75% very long bond.

  2. So I was looking at capitalization per employees. Divide company stock holder equity by number of employees. 2 of the highest? KKR and BX!! Beating Apple and Microsoft convincingly

  3. For those interested in shipping, there are a couple of new podcasts on Bloomberg Odd Lots. You can also find them on Apple or Spotfy. The Red Sea podcast – nothing you haven’t heard before, but all in one place in an easy 50 minute dose. The new Suez Canal podcast exists on Bloomberg as an article, assume it will appear in audio soon.

    For me, the main take-aways from the Red Sea podcast are: insurance costs are going up, so are shipping rates and container costs, re-routing around Africa takes more time and costs $$$ for fuel, and there is some national competition evident. (India is more prominent in defending its ships than China.)

    1. and since that trip takes longer, if a steady arrival every so many days is to be maintained, more ships as well will be needed.
