(Bloomberg) -- David Swensen, the chief investment officer at Yale University who helped revolutionize how college endowments are managed, has died. He was 67.Swensen died May 5 after a long battle with cancer, Yale said Thursday in a statement. He had gone on temporary leave from his job in September 2012 to undergo treatment before returning to his duties at Yale.Swensen managed one of the most-watched and best-performing college endowments for more than three decades. Many of the world’s wealthiest investors sought to replicate his investment model, which favors more illiquid assets such as private equity.“David served our university with distinction,” Yale President Peter Salovey said in the statement. “He was an exceptional colleague, a dear friend and a beloved mentor to many in our community. Future generations will benefit from his dedication, brilliance and generosity.”After arriving from Wall Street in 1985 to manage money for the school in New Haven, Connecticut, Swensen overhauled his alma mater’s endowment, which was largely invested in domestic stocks and bonds. He diversified into private equity, hedge funds and real estate.While the strategy is now widely accepted, at the time it was novel for a college and produced superior returns against both benchmarks and peers while creating a model for other institutions.“David’s ideas reverberated beyond Yale as he revolutionized the landscape of institutional investing,” Salovey wrote. “A natural teacher, he prepared a generation of institutional investors who have gone on to lead investment offices at other colleges and universities.”‘Highest Integrity’His contributions to institutional investing are without parallel, said Richard Levin, the former Yale president who first met Swensen in the 1970s in the Yale economics department, when Swensen was a doctoral student and Levin an assistant professor.“Perhaps more impressive than his contributions was his character,” Levin said in a telephone interview. “Self-confident yet selfless, with the highest integrity. His rectitude was astonishing. He devoted himself to the institution that he loved.”Levin, who worked with Swensen on the investment committee and as a tennis doubles partner, said character was an important part of how he selected outside firms that invested Yale’s money.“He would never invest with a manager who he didn’t believe to be scrupulously honest and fair-minded,” Levin said. “People who skated close to the line repelled him. The integrity of his partners was very important to him.”Swensen invested for the long term. The university has been around for 300 years, and he sought to invest to provide resources for another 300, said Charles Ellis, who knew Swensen for decades and served for 17 years as chairman of Yale’s investment committee.“He arrived in a world that was deeply conventional and no one else could see that conventional way was not right,” Ellis said. “Once you make the commitment to long-term investing, bonds have no place and conventional stocks are OK. Can you do better?”Top ReturnsYale’s investment office generated annualized returns of 10.9% in the decade through June 2020, the best among all eight Ivy League schools, and 9.9% annually over 20 years. Under his tutelage, it became the world’s third-wealthiest university, with a $31.2 billion endowment as of June 2020.While his Wall Street career spanned just six years, Swensen would leave a mark. In 1981, while working for Salomon Brothers, he helped develop a so-called currency swap between International Business Machines Corp. and the World Bank, which would serve as a precursor for the emergence of the derivatives market. The following year he was hired by Lehman Brothers as senior vice president of corporate finance, directing its swap-market subsidiary.It was Nobel laureate James Tobin, his dissertation adviser, who in 1985 persuaded Swensen to return to New Haven to take over Yale’s endowment, and the university to entrust about $1 billion of assets to a 31-year-old alumnus.On his 20th anniversary in 2005, he was given a chart showing the $7.8 billion in additional return the endowment generated using his strategy over two decades, ranking it as the biggest financial donation ever in the history of Yale, which was founded in 1701.Making Mistakes“Successful investment cultures encourage professionals to find new mistakes to make, instead of simply repeating old mistakes,” Swensen wrote in his 2000 book, “Pioneering Portfolio Management: An Unconventional Approach to Institutional Investment.”Swensen was born Jan. 26, 1954, in River Falls, Wisconsin, where his father, Richard Swensen, was a dean and chemistry professor at the local campus of the University of Wisconsin. His grandfather was also a chemistry professor. His mother, Grace, became a Lutheran minister after raising six children, and one of his three sisters also became a minister.Swensen was a fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences and Council on Foreign Relations, and he advised President Barack Obama as a member of the President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board.He had also served as trustee or adviser to several companies, schools, governments and nonprofits, including the Brookings Institution, Cambridge University, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, New York Stock Exchange, as well as the states of Connecticut and Massachusetts, according to the statement.He is survived by his wife, Meghan McMahon, and three children.(Updates with medical leave in second paragraph, Levin comments starting in eighth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

‘Sell in May and go away.’ It’s one of those old adages whose origins are a little obscure – but which remains surprisingly applicable. It refers to the historical underperformance of the markets during the six months from May to October, when compared to November to April. The exact reasons are debatable, but according to Forbes magazine, between 1950 and 2013 the Dow showed an average return of only 0.3% during the spring/summer months – compared to 7.5% during the fall and winter. This year, there is some speculation that summer underperformance may be worse than usual. The S&P 500 rose 28% between last November and April, outpacing the historical gains. Will the spring losses do the same? We just don’t know. What we do know, is that the market rally was fueled, at least in part, by the economies reopening, people getting back to work, and consumers starting to spend again, after the disruptions of the corona crisis. That process is well begun – but it’s still in the early stages. So, given that consumer activity drives the US economy – let’s look at some retail stocks to get an idea where they’re headed. We’ve used the TipRanks platform to find three that carry Strong Buy consensus ratings. Moreover, certain Wall Street analysts think gains of at least 30% are in store for these names over the next 12 months. Here are the details. Lululemon Athletica, Inc. (LULU) First on our list, Lululemon, is a purveyor of athletic wear, which has historically targeted mainly upscale women and is well known for its smart use of social media. The company has been working to expand market share by adapting its product line for more appeal to men. A look at Lululemon’s quarterly financial releases shows a clear pattern, not uncommon among retailers: the company’s weakest performance comes in Q1, and performance rises steadily through Q4. The year 2020 shows a partial departure from the pattern; Q1 was weakest, and underperformed year-over-year. Since then, however, LULU has shown year-over-year revenue gains in each successive quarter. The most recent release, for 4Q20, showed $1.73 billion in revenue, up 23% year-over-year. The gain was driven by a 47% increase in international revenue. EPS came in at $2.52, the highest quarterly earnings of the year, and up 10.5% from 4Q19. The company finished 2020 with 521 stores, a net gain of 30. In his overage of the stock for BTIG, analyst Camilo Lyon writes, “As we look to F21, LULU is accelerating all aspects of its growth drivers in an effort to drive further market share gains…. we believe the long term opportunity for LULU to serve both the at-home and outdoor fitness consumer places it at the center of the active lifestyle secular trend…. We believe LULU is among the few companies that entered the current environment from a position of strength and as such, will exit it stronger.” Lyon rates the stock as a Buy, and his $434 price target indicates an upside of 36% for the coming year. (To watch Lyon’s track record, click here.) Overall, it’s clear that Wall Street likes Lululemon. Of the 15 recent share reviews, 12 are to Buy against just 3 Holds, giving LULU a Strong Buy consensus rating. The stock sells for 319.22, and its $398.60 average price target suggests a one-year upside of 25%. (See Lululemon’s stock analysis at TipRanks.) Ollie’s Bargain Outlet Holding (OLLI) The COVID pandemic slammed brick-and-mortar retail – but some segments found themselves uniquely suited to the crisis. Big chain discount retailers, offering wide ranges of home wares, toys, hardware, cleaning supplies, groceries, bed and bath supplies, and all at a low price, have done well. This is the niche that Ollie’s inhabits. The chain has 496 stores across the country. Ollie’s consistently outperformed on revenues and earnings during the pandemic year, when consumers, looking to save money, turned to discount retailers. The company has showed year-over-year gains in each quarter of 2020; for Q4, the most recent reported, the top line came in at $515.8 million, up 22% yoy. EPS, at 98 cents, was up from 77 cents the year before; a gain of 27%. Management reported that 2020 full year results, despite the pandemic, were the best in the company’s history. Three additional metrics will show the strength of Ollie’s position. First, comp store sales grew over 15% in 2020 as a whole. Second, the chain opened 46 new stores during the year. And finally, Ollie’s has a strong balance sheet, with over $447 million cash available, and negligible debt – total borrowings for 2020 were reported at just $1 million. 5-star analyst Randal Konik, of Jefferies, sees Ollie’s as well-positioned in a tough niche, writing, “We believe OLLI has ample runway for store growth ahead in both new and existing markets. Strong and growing brand awareness, coupled with a healthy buying environment following significant retail dislocation, positions OLLI well to continue gaining share.” Looking at the balance sheet, Konik is deeply impressed: “Cash is near $450M with little to no debt. This puts OLLI in an enviable position, and we like that the company is putting that strong cash position and strong cash flow to work with an increase to share repo program.” In line with these comments, Konik rates OLLI as a Buy, and his $125 price target suggests it has room for 43% growth this year. (To watch Konik’s track record click here.) The Wall Street reviews on OLLI break down 6 to 2 in favor of Buys versus Hold, for a Strong Buy consensus rating. The stock is selling for $87.19, with an average price target at $106.38 to imply an upside of 22%. (See Ollie’s stock analysis at TipRanks.) Nike, Inc. (NKE) The last stock we’re looking at, Nike, needs no introduction. The iconic brand has managed to successfully work itself into our collective consciousness, to the point that its swoosh logo no longer needs the company name. It’s legendary branding, at its best. Looking at the company’s latest quarterly statement, Nike reported $10.4 billion in total revenue for its Q3, fiscal year 2021. This was up a mere 3% year-over-year, a minor gain for such a large company. Nike reported a 10% decline in North American revenue, mainly due to supply chain disruptions – a shortage of shipping containers in the global markets, and heavy congestion at the US West Coast ports have harmed inventory flow and wholesale shipments. The North American losses were balanced by an impressive 51% revenue gain in the Chinese market. Nike’s overall earnings rose in the recent quarter. EPS came in at 90 cents, up 69% year-over-year. JPMorgan’s 5-star analyst Matthew Boss likes Nike, both its market position and its forward prospects. He writes, summing up the company’s potential for investors, “We see NKE’s brand momentum across geographies as sustainable and providing insulation to macro volatility and supporting sustainable multi-year high-single-digit top-line growth. We view this, combined with continued gross margin expansion (increased fully price selling, favorable DTC mix), driving sustainable multi-year mid-teens EPS growth.” Boss gives NKE shares an Overweight (i.e., Buy) rating, along with a $176 price target that implies an upside of 32% for the next 12 months. (To watch Boss’s track record, click here.) Nike is another stock with a Strong Buy consensus rating, this one based on 18 analyst reviews. These include 15 to Buy, 2 to Hold, and a single Sell. The average price target, of $165.35, suggests a 24% one-year upside from the $132.94 current trading price. (See Nike’s stock analysis at TipRanks.)

TORONTO, May 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cern One Limited and Michael Bonner (the “Concerned Shareholders”), who are both investors in Axion Ventures Inc. (“Axion”), announce that they will be commencing proceedings in the British Columbia Supreme Court to require Axion to repeat its 2020 annual general and special meeting of shareholders held on April 15, 2021 to remedy irregularities that occurred at the April 15 meeting. Axion has still not allowed the Concerned Shareholders to complete their inspection of proxies and related materials from the AGM. The results of the inspection completed to date indicate serious acts of corporate misconduct on the part of Axion. In particular, and as described in the Concerned Shareholders’ April 23, 2021 press release, Axion appears to have attempted to manipulate the outcome of AGM voting by accepting from unauthorized parties certain management proxies and allowing those unauthorized parties to vote shares contrary to earlier voting instructions provided by the actual authorized parties. For instance, Uniq Ventures Ltd. cast its vote for the Concerned Shareholders’ proposed slate on April 12, 2021. Later that day, an individual with no affiliation with Uniq reversed Uniq’s vote and then delivered a proxy purporting to vote for management. Uniq’s sole director did not change or authorize any change to Uniq’s vote. Rather, a stranger to Uniq simply purported to vote Uniq’s shares, overriding Uniq’s vote. It appears that this vote was accepted by Yasuyo Yamazaki, the chair of the AGM, without any notice to Uniq. Further, and even more troubling, the Concerned Shareholders believe that only Axion management could have provided the stranger with the management proxy for Uniq in the circumstances. The Concerned Shareholders further believe that Axion counted votes in favour of management from shareholders who had (i) attempted to revoke votes for management; and (ii) subsequently delivered proxies or powers of attorney appointing shareholders to vote their shares in support of the Concerned Shareholders’ slate at the AGM. In addition to the issues raised above, the Concerned Shareholders have raised other issues with Axion based on their review of proxies to date, and recent attempts to clarify those issues have gone unanswered by the company. In the British Columbia Supreme Court proceeding, the Concerned Shareholders will immediately be seeking, among other things, orders requiring Axion to repeat the April 15, 2021 AGM and to appoint an independent chair for that AGM. Michael Bonner commented: “We call on all of Axion shareholders to support our demand that the company repeat the April 15 AGM on a fair and transparent basis and without any further attempts to interfere with the voting process or results. The Concerned Shareholders have retained Gryphon Advisors Inc. as its strategic shareholder services advisor. Norton Rose Fulbright Canada LLP is acting as legal counsel to the Concerned Shareholders.
