China's Wine Industry: A Growing Taste For The Grape

Posted By: Melissa Lee
China may be known for a lot of things--its rich culture, its gastronomic delights, its burgeoning economy. But I bet you'd never, ever guess that it's also got a budding, European style wine industry. I visited the ninth biggest winery today, in the northwest corner of Beijing. Amid the wide roadways, the construction sites and scores of people who simply have no fear of moving vehicles sits the Dragon Seal winery. »Read more

China And The Media: How Some Customs Never Change

Posted By: Melissa Lee
Here in Beijing, you can see the change happening everywhere you go. Construction sites are a dime a dozen. Roads are being repaved in the wee hours of the night. Cranes lurch over the skyline. Still, some things here never change--including the way businesses interact with the media. »Read more

China And The Olympics: My Journey To Beijing

Posted By: Melissa Lee
The anticipation gets pretty heady when you've got 13 hours on a plane, with little more than a book, a bad movie and a magazine to keep you busy. I am in Beijing, China. I left Washington Dulles airport at 10:15 pm and landed in Beijing at 2:00 in the afternoon the next day. I'm here reporting a number of stories on what businesses are doing to prepare for the olympics (they are just about one year away), how this country is seeing unprecedented economic growth and how companies are harnessing that boom to help their own bottom lines. »Read more

Capitol Hill: Creating More Waste With Private Equity Probes?

Posted By: Melissa Lee
No one likes government waste, right? It's taxpayer dollars going down the toilet. And yet, today on Capitol Hill, there may be a lot of waste generated by not one, not two, but THREE Congressional hearings on hedge funds and private equity. Wait, you say! I will probably get a load of emails (and please send them, I do read them) calling me unpatriotic or a mouthpiece for the wealthy world of hedge funds and private equity. No, I am not a friend of Blackstone's CEO Steve Schwarzman (although, I'd take an invitation to dine on »Read more

Ivan Boesky: Are Lessons Lost In New Era Of Mega Deals?

Posted By: Melissa Lee
Every deal worth a headline these days is inevitably followed by the discovery of unusual options activity. In fact, it's become so routine that when news of a deal crosses, all I have to do is pick up the phone, call an options trader, determine how abnormal the trading activity was in the days prior to the deal, and BOOM! I've got a story. Unusual options trading pre-mega deal is definitely not unusual. »Read more

Blackstone and LBO Boom: Watch The Credit Market

Posted By: Melissa Lee
As I write this, Blackstone shares are up more than 1%, but still below $30 a share and below the offering price. And the grave dancers who have been predicting the LBO boom say: See? We're right! Investors don't want to bet on Steve Schwarzman anymore. But it's hard to bet against a master dealmaker like Schwarzman--one day after the biggest LBO on record, BCE, is announced. So let's play devil's advocate here. »Read more

Blackstone's IPO: Top 5 Things Investors WANT to Know!

Posted By: Melissa Lee
On CNBC TV today, I have been talking about the top 5 things investors should know about the highly anticipated Blackstone IPO. (And, in case you're wondering, 5 was an arbitrary number.) Clearly, it was a very serious and informative piece of journalism. Now, let's have some fun. Here are the top 5 things investors REALLY WANT to know about Blackstone's IPO. I don't have the answers to any of them unfortunately--but it's more fun to fantasize, isn't it? »Read more
