Emerald Bay Collection

Good Morning, 
DID YOU KNOW? Besides Softbank, those who have invested in Compass include Fidelity Investments, Wellington Management, Dragoneer, Canada Pension Plan Investor Board, Goldman Sachs, IVP, Advance Publications, Founders Fund, and LeFrak. 
DID YOU KNOW? Google claims to have built the first quantum computer that has the supposed ability to perform a calculation in three minutes and 20 seconds that would take today's most advanced classical computer (Summit) about 10,000 years. (FT)
DID YOU KNOW? Bill Gates's philosophy on risks says no matter how much analysis one does, it’s important to be comfortable with uncertainty. Tackling big problems often means progress is measured not just in years, but often decades — where your end goal doesn’t change, but your path to get there might have to. The key is to continue learning and be open to new strategies that can bring you closer to your goals. A willingness to take risks is important, but a good bet is based on proper models, not a hunch. (CNBC)
I’m bullish on U.S. businesses, global businesses. We’re not in some defensive posture where we’re mostly in cash or anything like that. The strategy that has been used on the investments is to be over 60% inequities.  - Bill Gates.
