Here's why a key investor in Snowflake and UiPath is betting big on VAST Data, a hot startup that tripled its valuation in a year to $3.7 billion05 May, 20:01, Business Insider • Développer
Summary List Placement VAST Data, a startup backed by the same investor as the explosive artificial intelligence companies Databricks , Snowflake and UIPath, has rocketed to a $3.7 billion valuation – three times what it was just a year ago. The NYC startup announced on Tuesday that it has raised $83 million in Series D funding, led by Tiger Global Management, which also backed the other companies. The round also included participation from existing investor Nvidia, the $357 billion graphics processing giant . In its blog post announcing the investment , the company said that it had achieved an annualized run rate of almost $100 million, and that it's now cash flow positive, and that its total balance sheet is now at $230 million. Renen Hallak, the founder and CEO of VAST Data, is a 38-year-old father of four, and one of many tech founders to come out of the Israeli military. He says following orders in a larger organization made him want to work for little companies. But in the case of VAST, which now has headquarters in New York City's Times Square, it didn't stay little for long.

One must admit that apart from the financial logic of investing some of one’s money in foreign stocks, the glamour of seeing names like Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Netflix etc. plays a role in persuading people to allocate some money to international investing. However, that’s obviously not the right way to invest. The investing case for choosing one or the other international fund must be examined just as it is for any domestic investments.The recent launch of a fund named NYSE FANG+ brings a new level of this brand awareness to investors. The fund, which is from Mirae Asset, is an ETF which is based on a highly concentrated index which has only 10 of the biggest tech stocks in the world, namely Alibaba, Facebook, Alphabet, Apple, Baidu, Nvidia, Amazon, Netflix, Twitter and Tesla. Based on recent past performance, this would be a great fund to invest in. However, as we all know very well, past performance is not everything. Not just that, a fund with a small, fixed portfolio of such names is an unusual entity for any Indian investor, something that we must try and understand.Historically, there are few types of mutual funds that are simultaneously so useful as well as so ignored by Indian investors as international funds.

The chip shortfall is persisting and spreading. Makers of cars, phones and computers still can’t get their hands on the semiconductors they need. Their suppliers don’t have the components to produce chips either. And it doesn’t look like solutions will emerge anytime soon. Such makeshift fixes only stand to make the problem worse. Meanwhile, few companies are using the crisis to prepare for future shortages. Take General Motors Co. It said it would go ahead and make its 2021 light-duty full-size pickup without a fuel management chip — part of a complicated system that controls and helps manage the vehicle’s engine cylinders. Its absence would result in a reduction in the pickup’s fuel economy. Rather than roll out potentially sub-par products, wouldn’t it have been better to rein in production altogether and get sustainable chip plans in place to make the right kind of cars in the future? Isn’t that something customers would prefer? While the automaker shut down some facilities because of a chip deficit, it plans to keep making all truck models because they are its most profitable vehicles.

Summary List Placement US shares slipped on Monday, falling from record highs last week as technology shares dragged indexes lower. Investors remain cautious over the slew of corporate earnings ahead as well as the ongoing vaccine rollout in the US. Leading the downturn was Tesla, with shares falling as much as 6.5% following the fatal car crash in Texas Saturday , which left two people dead. The electric car maker was a big laggard on the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite Index. The consumer and real estate sectors also weighed on the benchmark index trading as analysts and investors anticipate earnings from nearly 80 companies this week. "Wall Street could be in for a few choppy trading weeks as more of the same strong earnings beats becomes the theme," Edward Moya, senior market analyst at OANDA, said in a note. "The bar was set too low this earnings season, but then again no one really thought it was possible that the US would reach herd immunity by June." Moya said the financial markets will likely look to how the bond market is positioned, especially with no major economic data on the horizon.

Summary List Placement The UK government will look into the national security implications of US group Nvidia's purchase of British chip designer ARM Holdings, it said on Monday, putting a question mark over the $40 billion deal . Digital minister Oliver Dowden said on Monday he had issued a so-called "intervention notice" over the sale of ARM by Japan's SoftBank to Nvidia. "As a next step and to help me gather the relevant information, the UK's independent competition authority will now prepare a report on the implications of the transaction, which will help inform any further decisions," he said. Nvidia said it did not believe the deal posed any material national-security issues. "We will continue to work closely with the British authorities, as we have done since the announcement of this deal," said Nvidia, the biggest US chip company by market capitalization. ARM is a major player in global semiconductors, a sector that is fundamental to technologies from artificial intelligence and quantum computing to 5G telecoms networks.
The chip industry's largest-ever deal is under scrutiny.
