Atlanta, Georgia , Oct. 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Stephanie Hess once lived in a powerful world of Fortune 500 companies. You’d think this is a success story about a woman climbing to the top. Instead, this success story was how she freed herself from a life she didn’t love and then built one she did. 

With a prestigious background in business and having worked for major movers and shakers like Estee Lauder and the New York Knicks, she thought she’d found her way, but something was off. In fact, when she did finally leave her corporate career, she found she’d been diagnosed with “Corporate PTSD.” How was that possible? She’d been doing everything she thought she was supposed to. Where was the happiness and satisfaction, along with her authenticity?

Tencent Stock Options Cost a Fortune and Traders Love Them

(Bloomberg) — Caught off guard by Tencent Holdings Ltd.’s record-breaking rally earlier this year, Hong Kong’s stock investors are getting well prepared for the next one.

For about two months, options traders have consistently shelled out more for bullish three-month contracts on the stock than they’re willing to pay for those protecting against losses, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. That’s kept Tencent’s so-called volatility skew below zero, an unusual quirk for a market that typically sees traders pay more for downside protection than upside speculation.

There are now almost 1.1 million outstanding options on Tencent, outnumbering those on the Hang Seng Index by more than 4-to-1. The demand for the derivatives mirrors a trend in the U.S., where volume in single-stock options exploded this year and helped underpin the rally in technology shares.

Nuclear Power Wants to Hitch Fortune to the Hottest New Fuel

(Bloomberg) —

The nuclear industry should tap into rising investor interest in hydrogen-fuel to revive the flagging prospects of reactor operators in an increasingly crowded marketplace for clean power.

That was the message delivered by executives and scientists who convened this week at the International Atomic Energy Agency. Higher demand for hydrogen from industry and heavy transport could make production of the fuel by operating reactors more economical, potentially breathing new life into a technology that’s been overtaken by wind and solar power.

“If nuclear can be leveraged to generate alternative revenue streams, its costs can be offset,” said Gloria Kwong, the Nuclear Energy Agency’s head of technology, at the IAEA’s annual general conference this week in Vienna. Executives from the Korean Atomic Energy Institute and Canadian Nuclear Laboratories similarly recommended a pivot toward hydrogen to buoy the industry’s prospects.
