    Been thinking of investing in ADT and saw this. A real head scratcher; how does a CFO go from ADT, a high growth company trading at 52 week high, to a dinosaur, old tech company like Xerox.

    Easy....either they pay her a lot more and she has shown very little loyalty or she is really in trouble at ADT but we will never know tha and she got out while she still could.he

     

    Either way, another UB bad decision. WHy do they keep UB is the real question.

    UB is desperate, plus she says she 'needs' (her own words, describing on the earnings call the sort of CFO she wanted as a replacement for Luca, himself a highly competent, disciplined and conscientious person) a CFO who is "...extremely flexible...". Is that what she got in her new CFO?

    Xerox stock will never consistently grow with UB as captain of the ship.
