Finding Alpha

  • Research Analysts Thoughts: over the last week we have been exploring hiring trends using the newly launched Linkup Employment Dashboards on Eagle Edge. We can see the level of hiring for legal experts has varied significantly between the major tech players; Facebook, Alphabet, Apple and Amazon. Some showed an acceleration as early as January 2018 whereas others don’t appear to have materially changed their strategy. Elsewhere, we’re monitoring hiring at specialty retailers such as BBY, BBBY, RH, GPS and LB to support their online strategies, with some stark differences between the various players.
