Why Kanye West’s career may be over

  Why Kanye West’s career may be over Kanye West has long been a lightning rod for controversy, but his most recent comments and actions have clearly gone too far. He’s alienated almost everyone at this point, and is running out of places to speak out (which is probably why he’s buying Parler). Unfortunately, the signs for this happening were always there, and after reading this lengthy list of Ye’s misdeeds, you’ll likely be “So Appalled.”

Kazia’s positive results get published

Oncology biotech Kazia Therapeutics (ASX:KZA) announced the publication of positive preclinical data for EVT801, a clinical-stage drug candidate currently in a clinical trial for multiple forms of cancer.

The publication was written by author Dr Michael Paillasse, and summarises a large body of preclinical research data conducted by scientists at Evotec SE and the University Cancer Institute of Toulouse-Oncopole over a period of several years.

If you are planning to buy a new computer, you can have hopes for a bargain. Some of the manufacturers and middlemen sit on high stocks and are currently preparing for a price war to get rid of them. The Corona pandemic had caused a boom on the PC market and the existing demand could not even be satisfied because the components were not available.

It was published in a journal called Cancer Research Communications, a recently-launched journal published by the American Association of Cancer Research (AACR).

The publsihed data formed the basis of Kazia’s in-licensing of EVT801 from Evotec in 2021, and has since supported transition of the compound into an ongoing Phase I clinical trial in patients with advanced solid tumour.

“These data demonstrate the substantial potential of EVT801 as a cancer therapeutic,” stated Dr Michael Paillasse, lead author of the publication.

“EVT801 has been shown to act exactly as intended: by impacting the vasculature in and around the tumor.

“In addition, the evidence of synergy with immunotherapy is persuasive, and we see a considerable opportunity to combine the drug with immune checkpoint inhibitors in clinical trials.”

Cochlear rejects ACCC’s arguments

Meanwhile, the ACCC has raised concerns with Cochlear’s (ASX:COH) proposed acquisition of Oticon Medical.

Cochlear is proposing to acquire shares in Demant’s hearing implants business, Oticon Medical.

Both Cochlear and Oticon Medical manufacture and supply non-surgical bone conduction devices, surgical bone anchored devices, and Cochlear implant hearing device.

These devices are used to treat more advanced hearing loss that typically cannot be managed by hearing aids.

There are few suppliers of these devices globally but in Australia, Cochlear and Oticon Medical are two of only three suppliers, and two of only four suppliers of Cochlear implants.

The ACCC is concerned the proposed acquisition would substantially lessen competition in already highly concentrated markets, which may lead to higher prices.

“Cochlear is by far the largest supplier of surgical bone anchored devices and Cochlear implants in Australia. It is also an important supplier of non-surgical bone conduction devices,” ACCC chair Gina Cass Gottlieb said.

From Theranos to FTX, a corporate fraud tidal wave is starting to crash

  From Theranos to FTX, a corporate fraud tidal wave is starting to crash There are few fraud victims while markets are green, but during a global economic downturn, misdeeds and subterfuge rise to the surface.Frauds have been happening for years, with lies, concealments and half-truths having contributed to the ballooning value of stocks over the past decade. But throughout this up-only market, it was very hard to find victims — company owners weren’t mad that management was committing fraud, they were enriched by it.

“Although Oticon Medical has a much smaller presence in Australia, we have significant concerns that the proposed acquisition will remove one of Cochlear’s few competitors in the supply of these three types of hearing devices in Australia.”

Cochlear has rejected ACCC’s arguments this morning, saying: “Cochlear does not believe the proposed acquisition will reduce competition and will continue to work with the ACCC to address matters raised as part of the public consultation process.”

So it will probably have been this year, where the stock markets have made not very negative headlines. These people are definitely happy not to be a stock owner. But unfortunately you are probably not aware of the advantages of this asset class. The dividends come to mind here first.
