Volatility increases immediately when CEOs return to work.” —David Yermack, a New York University finance professor, whose recently released study shows a correlation between when CEOs take their private jets on vacation and movements in their companies’ stock price ”

Citing a desire by the Associação Brasileria de Aviação Geral (ABAG) to assume a more extensive role in organizing the Latin American Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (LABACE), the National Business Aviation Association in the U.S. has announced that it is scaling back its participation. "After three years, ABAG is moving into the lead and will coordinate the event from São Paulo," said NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen. LABACE 2007 (www.labace.aero) is scheduled for August 9 to 11 in São Paulo.
