      • ChargePoint: “ChargePoint is part of a very challenged group. I’ve done a lot of soul searching and, of course, a lot of research on this group. There are too many players, and there has not been enough consolidation, so I’m going to say avoid it.”
      • Prothena: “I like it. I mean, I think they have a very positive Alzheimer’s formulation and they have other things. I do believe — just so we’re really clear about it and told people — that [Eli Lilly] is the winner because Lilly does not have the bad work that Biogen has, wasn’t looking for big money and has more prestige within the brain community.”
      • Squarespace: “Design your own website, I don’t know. Wix, Adobe, no. I’m not in this. Direct listing. No support on Wall Street. I say no.”
      • Vale: “Yes, you should be wary [of the stock’s roughly 17% dividend yield]. Brazilian company, a lot of … environmental problems. I don’t trust it. Someone asked about [Rio Tinto] the other day. I think Rio is a better company.”
