  1. Which Companies Belong to the Elite Trillion-Dollar Club? Just a handful of publicly-traded companies have managed to achieve $1 trillion or more in market capitalization—only six, to be precise. We pull data from Companies Market Cap to find out which familiar names are breaking the 13-digit barrier—and who else is waiting in the wings. Footnote: All data referenced is as of August 17, 2021. The Major Players in the Game Apple and Microsoft are the only two companies to have shattered the $2T market cap milestone to date, leaving others in the dust. Apple was also the first among its Big Tech peers to ascend to the $1 trillion landmark back in 2018. Facebook dipped in and out of the $1T+ club in July 2021, and continues its capricious movement. With just 17 years under its belt, it’s the youngest company ever to reach this valuation milestone—though not without some wild rides along the way. State-owned oil and gas giant Saudi Aramco is the only non-American company to make the trillion-dollar club. This makes it a notable outlier, as American companies typically dominate the leaderboard of the biggest corporations around the world. Who Else Might Join the Trillion-Dollar Club? Companies with a market capitalization above $500 billion are also few and far between. Within this next list of six companies, the world’s most valuable automaker Tesla is another strong candidate to eventually join the Four Comma Club. As per usual, analyst views on Tesla are quite varied. That said, some on Wall Street are predicting that Tesla might reach $3 trillion in market cap within the decade, owing to significant current and projected demand for electric vehicles (EVs) and driverless systems.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Hong Kong is the most unaffordable housing market—scoring 20.8 to take the top spot.

  4. I do not think Britain would have surrendered, it bankrupted the country and she lost the empire but she won....
  5. You are obsessed with this thread, I post in lots of different threads, you seem like an amateur military strategist. I have no view that I would not change if evidence was shown, you are stuck in a British Empire mindset If a man will begin with certainties, he shall end in doubts, but if he will content to begin with doubts, he shall end in certainties.

  6. I somewhat agree, Xi does seem to be making very family orientated decisions no longer taking its culture from the deprived west
  7. Landlords are probably not checking their accounts daily, I would give it two weeks before this hits mainstream news

  9. https://thenegotiator.co.uk/worries-about-arpm-mount-as-agents-report-landlords-not-being-paid-rent/ The Negotiator has been contacted by several estate agents from across the UK concerned that their outsourced property management supplier ARPM is no longer taking calls or returning emails. One agent, Richard Burke of Coventry firm Pure Properties says a dozen of his landlords have been in touch to ask why their monthly rent payment has not landed in their bank accounts.Burke says he only joined ARPM recently after the Covid pandemic persuaded him to outsource his day-to-date property management including rent collection and maintenance. “The ARPM team were really good and many of our landlords commented on the quality of service,” he says.“But out of the blue yesterday many said their rent hadn’t arrived, and we can’t get hold of anyone at ARPM to find out what’s happened – we keep getting messages saying people have left.”Burke says he’s tracked down his ARPM account manager who, although she’s on holiday and has not been paid herself, has been trying to sort things out.
  10. You remind me of the hard core Remainers/Brexit debate group, who cannot accept that it is over, you keep trying to change the past by bringing up valid points, you know you cannot walk it back.
  11. Ok Erich Von Manstein As the most experienced military strategist on HPC how long would it take the Taliban to invade Afghanistan. I bet you got that wrong.
  12. https://eu.usatoday.com/story/entertainment/tv/2021/09/02/china-bans-sissy-men-tv-encourages-more-masculinity/5694333001/ China bans 'sissy men' from TV to encourage more masculinity in young men BEIJING (AP) — China’s government banned effeminate men on TV and told broadcasters Thursday to promote “revolutionary culture,” broadening a campaign to tighten control over business and society and enforce official morality. President Xi Jinping has called for a “national rejuvenation,” with tighter Communist Party control of business, education, culture and religion. Companies and the public are under increasing pressure to align with its vision for a more powerful China and healthier society. The party has reduced children’s access to online games and is trying to discourage what it sees as unhealthy attention to celebrities. Broadcasters must “resolutely put an end to sissy men and other abnormal esthetics,” the TV regulator said, using an insulting slang term for effeminate men — “niang pao,” or literally, “girlie guns.”
  13. I am not going to argue with you about Brexit as i voted remain, I think supply chains are collapsing all over the world
  14. Prices will rise in the EU as well, the guy I work with his brother works for an international window company and he was saying, the UK and Germany and Ireland all have run out of EE willing to work for low wages
  15. Worker shortages everywhere, it is coronovirus, some places are in lockdown and others no longer want to work, the supply chain is in meltdown
  16. Did they leave for more money or decided they never wanted to work again fulltime?
