Port scanning, malicious hacking and the exploitation of web-based information systems' vulnerabilities remains a clear and potent danger to communication and transactions on the World Wide Web. The situation is further complicated by the ubiquitous nature of the Internet and the increasing volumes of private, organizational and institutional information repositories being migrated unto internet platforms. Malicious users sniffing private information engage in port scanning using automated tools hooked on proxy systems to intrude into unsuspecting hosts. A hybrid technique that offers resilient protection against port scanners is proposed.
Attention-based buying is a very common investment decision-making practice for individual investors. As compared to institutional investors, individuals are strongly biased towards buying attention-grabbing stocks and relying upon non-genuine news from the Internet. Further, they have less sophisticated investment techniques available and hence, their investment behavior is often influenced by attention. The two fundamental questions of this book are first, how can attention actually be measured and second, does attention-based investing influence the pricing of stocks? The book presents a relatively new approach for measuring investor attention and applies the Internet search volume on Google as the decisive proxy. The study suggests that a relatively large increase in the Google search volume is associated with a rise in the level of investor attention. Based on this assumption, the book empirically shows that investor attention and stock price movements are interrelated and that by enhancing the level of investor attention, a company has the power to temporarily increase its market value.
This book analyzes how international organizations and the European Union engage with civil society to pursue their policy goals. Multi-stakeholder initiatives, private-public partnership, sub-contracting, political alliances, hybrid coalitions, multi-sectoral networks, pluralist co-governance, and indeed foreign policy by proxy are all considered. Bringing together the most advanced scholarship, the book examines trade, environment, development, security, and human rights with reference to both EU and global institutional settings such as the WTO, UN Climate Summits, FAO, IFAD, ICC, UNHRC, UNSC, and at the EU level the DG FISMA, TRADE, CLIMA, DEVCO, HOME and ECHO. The book also studies the use of NGOs in the foreign policy of the EU, USA, and Russia. This changing politics and the polarized debate it has generated are explored in detail.
Some of the worst corporate meltdowns over the past sixty years can be traced to passive directors who favored operational shortcuts over quality growth strategies. Thinking primarily about placating institutional investors, selective stockholders, proxy advisors, and corporate management, these inattentive and deferential board members have relied on short-term share price increases to sustain their companies long term. Driven by a desire for prosperity, not posterity, these actions can doom any company. In The Activist Director, attorney Ira M. Millstein looks back at fifty years of counseling companies, nonprofits, and governments to actively govern their corporations and constituencies. His solution lies at the top: a new breed of activist directors who partner with management and reject short-term outlooks, plan a future based on growth and innovation, and take responsibility for corporate organization, strategy, and efficiency.
Investors are trying to generate excess returns through active investment strategies. Since the outbreak of the financial crisis, investors face a situation where increased risks are accompanied by falling key interest rates. An optimal portfolio in terms of risk and return becomes a perpetual motion machine. Markus Vollmer answers the question how the seemingly impossible could still be achieved by an empirical analysis of historical data of 1'800 stocks listed at equity markets in 24 countries covering all 19 super sectors. The author offers valid and reliable findings by using the previously mentioned data proxy. He reveals purposefully the need for further research and simultaneously he derives specific and applicable guidelines for the design of investment strategies which are extremely exciting for both the institutional expert and the private investor.
