  • Whole Foods Market talks new value brand [View news story]
    Fascinating. I wonder whether WFM will use their new Harlem location in NYC as a place to try out the new concept?

    There's already a Whole Foods at 97th-100th St (which has WholeFoods' only NYC wine store next door). Further north in Manhattan, gentrification is extending into much poorer neighborhoods. The nearest large supermarket to WholeFoods planned Lenox Ave and 125th Street location is PathMark at 125th/Lexington Ave which clearly serves a much lower-income demographic.

    Opening a cheaper WholeFoods on 125th St might allow them to appeal to both higher-income recently-arrived residents and more established lower-income Harlem stalwarts.

  • Seeking Alpha Expands Relationship With Nasdaq [View article] was actually mentioned in the Q&A of yesterday's earnings call from FactSet:

    Do you use Do you know people who use them -- and if so, what specific job functions do they have in the financial sector?

    On the call, FactSet's COO thought would appeal to wealth managers, and Phil Hadley FactSet's CEO argued that "ultra-high-net-worth" wealth managers (I assume he meant those with larger rather than smaller AUM) were still likely to prefer FactSet.

    @Currant85 At the bottom of almost all articles on Seeking Alpha, above the comments section, there's a unit showing a list of headlines about that stock ticker. Above the list, there's a little orange icon next to the heading "Latest Articles on {a particular stock}". Right-click that orange icon (on a PC), or control-click it (on a Mac) and you can copy the link to the RSS feed for Seeking Alpha articles on that ticker.

    For example, go to this article (if for some reason the link I paste below gets messed up, the try searching for the title "A Flurry Around Yahoo In Q3 2014" using Google to get there from the search results page):

    At the bottom of the article, just above the comments, there's a section headed "Latest on YHOO". That is the RSS feed for just that ticker. Click on loads in your browser to add to your RSS feed reader.

    @jojopuppyfish: We do actually have the RSS feeds you mention which are available for personal use. You'll find them at the bottom of any primary ticker (focus) article for a feed of items about that ticker. There's an icon to copy the RSS feed URL.

    If you want to do this more easily for many tickers, the URLs are of the form: "" where you can just replace the AAPL with whatever ticker symbol you want.

    For commercial use, we create custom feeds for business development partners. Any company or site interested in this product should contact us at if that is the case.

  • Norwegian Air tries to disrupt trans-Atlantic market [View news story]
    A few thoughts:

    -- This is not the first low-cost venture that has been attempted on transatlantic flights: in the economy market, there was Laker Airways back in the 1970s, flyZoom more recently. In the "low-cost" business class market carved out by MaxJet and EOS Airlines, British Airways' OpenSkies is the sole survivor (having taken over their competitor L'Avion). What makes Norwegian more likely to succeed where others have failed?

    -- Are passengers really willing to consider price alone, without regard to reliability or quality of service, for long-haul flights? Small seat pitch and unbundling everything may work on short-haul, but will it work on flights of 6+ hours and be attractive to people, especially on the routes they are trying?

    -- Norwegian Air doesn't have an excellent record for on-time operation or in-flight service. See this for more details of delays and spoiled food:
