$AVP Avon CEO: 'No Shortage of Challenges for Us' -- Market Talk

Avon CEO: 'No Shortage of Challenges for Us' -- Market Talk
Oct 31 at 11:00
Profile hits: QU1

      11:00 EDT - Avon (AVP) CEO Sheri McCoy didn't beat around the bush when
she started speaking during this morning's 3Q conference call. "By now you've
seen the press was a tough quarter," with her quickly referencing
comments 3 months ago that 3Q "would be challenging. Given our sales
performance, it's clear that it was tougher than we anticipated." But she
contends "we understand what the challenges were." They include sales efforts in
the US. There, "our recruiting engine fell apart," and McCoy says AVP needs to
do better training and supporting new salespeople. All told, "there is no
shortage of challenges for us." No wonder shares are down 23% at $17.36, more
than halving the year's rebound. (

away from the car with no permanent injury. He is appreciative of the safety and
performance of the car and has asked if we can expedite delivery of his next

$AAPL Carl Icahn's Letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook

Carl Icahn's Letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook -- WSJ Blog

      Dear Tim:
      It was a pleasure meeting you for dinner at the end of September. When we
met, my affiliates and I owned 3,875,063 shares of Apple. As of this morning, we
owned 4,730,739 shares of Apple, an increase of 22% in position size, reflecting
our belief the market continues to dramatically undervalue the company, even
when taking into account the recent market appreciation, which in turn makes our
proposal unchanged with respect to a $150 Billion buyback. We were pleased to
hear at our dinner that you appreciated our input and that you would speak to us
again in three weeks to continue the dialogue. In anticipation of doing so soon,
we aim to reiterate in this letter the point of view already expressed to you
directly with the hope of effectively summarizing it for the company's board of
directors and our fellow shareholders.
