This Genius Made a Killing on the 2008 Housing Crash; Now He’s All In on Cannabis

“The Big Short” refers to a now-classic play by legendary investor Danny Moses and just a few others who made an unthinkable sum of money shorting the sick, sick U.S. subprime mortgage market at a time when just about everyone else was enthusiastically buying into their financial doom.

A call like the “Big Short” takes real vision – and real guts.

So when I caught Danny on CNBC’s “Fast Money,” I was instantly intrigued.

He was talking about cannabis stocks… and he wasn’t in the mood to do much shorting.

Quite the contrary: Danny was essentially laying out the case for a “Big Long” in our favorite sector.

He thinks there’s more money to be made in marijuana than there ever was shorting housing.

Let me tell you why I’m so excited Danny Moses is in the picture; it has huge implications for our model cannabis portfolios…

Best Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2019

It would be hard to find a podcast-hosting duo more totally invested in answering your financial questions than Alison Southwick and Robert Brokamp — they put “Answers” in the show’s name, for goodness’ sake! And this week, they’re at it again, combing through the Motley Fool Answers mailbag in search of conundrums to address for their listeners. But because three heads are better than two, for this episode, they’ve enlisted the help of Sean Gates, a financial planner with Motley Fool Wealth Management.

In this segment, we have a case of a man trying to balance two conflicting Foolish dictums. Isaac wanted to take advantage of February’s correction to snag some undervalued stocks, but to do so, he had to buy on margin. It worked out — this time — but what he really wants to know is: Was he being Foolish, or just foolish?

JPMorgan trades banker offices for shared desks

JPMorgan Chase is tearing down walls and moving its San Francisco investment bankers onto “hot desks,” a space-saving layout that has long been a fixture at tech companies, while redesigning offices in Dallas and other cities.

Shared workspaces have been relatively slow to catch on at banks, but JPMorgan is following recent renovations by some rivals, which designers tout as cost cutting and productivity boosting. Still, bankers who covet the status and privacy of personal offices are in for big changes.

When JPMorgan renovated two floors at its Mission Street office in San Francisco last month, it replaced many offices with diner-style booths, designated quiet zones and communal tables for the roughly 250 investment bankers and other employees there.

Noah Wintroub, a San Francisco-based vice chairman of investment banking at JPMorgan who focuses on tech and media companies, said he lobbied for the open-desk layout, though it may be a culture shock for some.

“We have historically been very hierarchical. When you become a managing director you have this kind of office,” Wintroub said.

The bank already set up hot desking for investment bankers in Hong Kong, said David Arena, JPMorgan’s head of global corporate real estate. It was able to cut costs by putting more people on fewer floors.

Arena did not say if U.S. renovations will help JPMorgan shrink its real estate footprint. He noted limits to the approach, saying it is “counter-productive if too many people are squeezed into one space.”

JPMorgan is also redesigning offices in Phoenix and Columbus, Ohio. It did not say if there were any plans to include hot desks at the bank’s New York main office, which is currently under construction.

Goldman Sachs tore down walls in its New York asset management office in 2017, and Morgan Stanley, is redesigning its midtown Manhattan headquarters to move brokers, traders and tech employees closer together, according to media reports.

Multiple users sharing one workstation has been common at tech and consulting companies for more than a decade, and a 2015 study by industry group the International Facility Management Association found a majority of businesses now use hot desking for at least some staff.

But the layout was slower to take hold in banking, where a cultural resistance stems in part from the need to take confidential calls in private, according to the report.

Offices were also status symbols, and sitting at a communal table instead of one’s own glass office is a big shift for investment bankers.

Some will still have offices, including Wintroub, though he said he prefers to sit with others in the open area and use his office as a conference room.
