Jul 22 2017

Look at that number! That is sweet.feedback

Jul 19 2017

I think he's the best player right now. Tournament in and tournament out, his bad shots are really good, which is what you need at Birkdale. And I think he's ready to win.feedback

Jul 06 2017

I think the upper half of the market is stronger than we think.feedback

Jul 06 2017

The expectation for the second quarter had been more modest. We did see the market cool in April. But by May the market kicked in and the quarter ended up finishing strong.feedback

Jul 06 2017

Sellers realized that if they wanted to move their property, they needed to be more realistic.feedback

Jun 28 2017

It was not formed into an I.E.D.; there wasn't a trigger, shrapnel and other things.feedback

Jun 18 2017

Erin Hills isn't exactly Oakmont. It was going to get broken, and it was most likely going to get broken on a par-72 course, with four par fives. That really helps. With course set-up and rain, it was a perfect storm for a good score. The course wasn't designed to be soft, and if it was going to be soft, it should have been 26- or 27-yard-wide fairways. That's what made it easy. The guys aren't afraid to bomb it.feedback

Jun 18 2017

It was never that way in the US Open. It was always about really tight fairways and having to be a great driver. This went totally against the tradition of the US Open. But a 63 for a par 72 is a heck of a score, even if it was the 'Milwaukee Open.feedback

Jun 18 2017

Taking nothing away from nine-under par. Nine-under is incredible with US Open pressure. But it isn't a US Open course that I'm familiar with, the way it was set up. It looks like a PGA Tour event course set-up. I'm not sure where the days of the 24 to 29-yard-wide fairways that we played every time went. It's interesting to see where the USGA has gone with the US Open, being a little more friendly than in years past.feedback

Jun 06 2017

It's expensive and complicated to get systems to up the point they're really hardened against these kinds of attacks. Criminals know there's a shrinking window for these kinds of attacks. They make a lot of money off them, so they want to make as much as they can while they still can.feedback

May 26 2017

But it does move the timetable up.feedback

May 25 2017

After the election, we saw this outpouring of activity. The market isn't booming, but it's not weak. It's somewhere in the middle. Maybe you could call it the Goldilocks housing market.feedback

May 21 2017

Whether it's One Stop or a number of stores we would be interested in having a look. One Stop is very similar to our own model, so we would be the most logical business to acquire it.feedback

May 21 2017

Around 34,000 convenience stores out there are owned by independents. That's a very big pond to fish in if you're only looking for 50 store acquisitions a year. Once we've fully integrated the Co-op stores, by the end of July, we'll be back on the acquisition trail. There's no limits to what we can do, we have a very scalable model.feedback

May 21 2017

When I think back to when I first got into the convenience store market it was quite a dark and dingy place. You would crunch through the sugar that had been spilt across the floor and it just wasn't an inviting place to shop. Now customers are demanding a better experience and a greater offer of fresh food. It really has changed for the better, and you have to credit the likes of Tesco and Sainsbury for raising the game.feedback

May 21 2017

I'd like to say it was strategic planning, but it was a stroke of luck to have that call on day one of the job. We didn't really know what to expect when we went public… but we raised enough money to pay off our last expensive tranche of debt, so that's been very liberating. I've worked alongside the former chief executive in stitching McColls together and taking it to market so I feel I've been quite instrumental.feedback

May 21 2017

We have always felt there was an oversupply of wholesale and that the market would consolidate over time. We are effectively the biggest available account for the wholesalers, so we thought that we'd be in a nice position at some point to be the business that everyone wants to win.feedback

May 21 2017 - London

We're predominantly outside the M25 and focused on providing a convenient fresh food offer to the wider UK population rather than just the London bubble. Dave Lewis knows where I am. Whether it's the One Stop business or a number of stores, of course we would be interested in having a look. One Stop is very similar to our own model, so were that to become available we would be the most logical acquirer. We'd be very interested.feedback

Apr 20 2017 - Mar-a-Lago

After the market reset in 2016, the first quarter results suggest more stable conditions. We are seeing sales rise in some of the markets.feedback

Apr 11 2017 - Mar-a-Lago

The FAA has a strong incentive to work with us and help get some funding that will put a system in place that will appease the Secret Service.feedback

Apr 11 2017

In the Hamptons, we saw a reset in sales. Prior to that, in 2014-5, we had an atypical period of second home activity, an unusually high point. Part of it was because '14 and '15, for the second home market, was a release of pent-up demand after the financial crisis.feedback

Apr 04 2017

More sellers are coming to grips with market conditions. The seller is traveling farther to meet the buyer on price, not the other way around. It is unclear whether the jump in resales will have enough momentum to be sustained throughout 2017. We may end up seeing sales levels equal or slightly exceed 2016 levels even with a few rate increases.feedback

Mar 17 2017

Anecdotally, the brokerage community said literally the day after the election there was a pop – activity jumped. We saw the same thing after the 2012 election. When the numbers come in for the first quarter, I think we will see an uptick over a year ago. It's not that demand for the high end has waned. It's that the value map has changed. And buyers are not looking to pay 2014 prices in 2017.feedback

Mar 08 2017

We don't know if there were mechanical issues or what was taking place.feedback

Mar 07 2017

We're not sure why. We don't know if there were mechanical issues or what was taking place. It's a terrible tragedy. I know there's a lot of families that are going to be impacted here.feedback

Mar 07 2017

I want you to know we're doing everything we can to get everyone off this bus.feedback

Mar 07 2017

It's a terrible, chaotic scene. We're not sure about the bus itself, why it was stopped, if it was having engine problems or what.feedback

Feb 17 2017

They're trying to pull out all the stops before they have to lower the price. Much like with rentals, they're doing everything they can to protect the asking price, so it doesn't damage the units that haven't sold.feedback

Feb 17 2017

The reality is, they're going to have to do that. The measure of that delay is a slowdown in sales.feedback

Jan 30 2017

This is consistent with buying relationships with the new administration and Russia.feedback

Jan 04 2017

What we're seeing is much more negotiability. There was such a big gap between some of the sellers' prices and the buyers that now we're seeing some of those hyper-priced properties coming off the market.feedback

Dec 06 2016

This is not about party politics. It's not about politics at all.feedback

Nov 23 2016 - Thanksgiving

You can ram a New York City Sanitation Department sand truck with a lot of things, but you're not going to move it.feedback

Nov 15 2016 - Thanksgiving

Bottom line: Come to the Thanksgiving Day Parade. Have a good time. Bring the family.feedback

Nov 14 2016 - Thanksgiving

Come to the Thanksgiving Day parade. Have a good time. Bring your family. I always go. I always bring mine.feedback

Nov 14 2016 - Thanksgiving

What you see is the psychological warfare of printing materials that indicate, Be afraid, be very afraid.' We never accede to that.feedback

Oct 20 2016

In terms of the luxury market, more product is coming online as developers try to reconfigure them to meet the demand of a changed market when they hit the market. The excess supply of luxury product will likely rise over the next year.feedback

Oct 04 2016

The Manhattan market is going through a process of resetting from the white-hot conditions of the past several years to something more sustainable in the long run.feedback

Sep 21 2016

So we're seeing increasing lowering of the bar in terms of inexpensive, unsophisticated, yet high-impact attacks that they're calling for, and people who are buying into a line of propaganda.feedback

Aug 31 2016

That's where a large swath of development has gone on over the last five years, not just in single-family homes and condos but in rental product as well.feedback

Aug 31 2016

That market was the first to recover after the financial crisis, but it's run its course. Part of it is aggressive pricing and part of it is excess supply.feedback

Aug 31 2016

We're seeing very robust activity in the entry space and the middle of the market, but we're not seeing it at the top.feedback

Jul 16 2016

I look at this pattern of the roommate phenomenon – or the intensity of the roommate phenomenon – as an indicator of the stress of daily life as a renter.feedback

Jul 15 2016

Absent intelligence, the same way you can't stop someone from shooting into a crowd, there isn't a magic way to stop someone from driving into a crowd. What we seek to do is minimize that threat in pedestrian malls like Times Square, where you have the largest crowds.feedback

Jul 01 2016

The housing market has generally been soft at the top and tight at the bottom and then a modest-paced market in the middle.feedback

Jul 01 2016

The market is heading sideways, and it hasn't done that in a while.feedback

Jul 01 2016

Most of this is being caused by the new development phenomenon of properties closing that went to contract a year ago. That's been happening since the third quarter of last year.feedback

Jun 11 2016

Higher rents bring in new and new types of residential support services and trigger new demand. The higher rent is caused by rising demand that meets inelastic supply, often that higher demand comes from adjoining neighborhoods that are also seeing gentrification.feedback

Jun 07 2013 - Afghanistan

If you're watching a thousand suspected terrorist numbers in Pakistan and Afghanistan and you see that this number is in contact with 50 other numbers, but three of them are in the United States, does that mean that a terrorist there has a cousin in Chicago? Or does that mean that there's a cell in the United States?feedback
