Joe Sharkey

Joe Sharkey has written the weekly business travel column in The New York Times for 12 years. He's the author of six books, none on travel. He and his wife, Nancy, a professor at the University of Arizona, live with their two parrots near Saguaro National Park in Tucson, where their favorite mode of transportation—short haul, at least—is a horse. A Vietnam veteran, Sharkey has been on virtually every kind of fixed-wing aircraft, including both final Concorde flights and a memorable sortie in 1967 in Pensacola with the Navy's Blue Angels. As a battered road warrior, he says the very first thing he would do if he acquired an extremely large sum of money is order a G650.



““CEOs go to their vacation homes just after companies report favorable news, and CEOs return to headquarters right before subsequent news is released. More good news is released when CEOs are back at work, and CEOs appear not to leave headquarters at all if a firm has adverse news to disclose. When CEOs are away from the office, stock prices behave quietly with sharply lower volatility. 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 ”
