Uber shares plunged 34% last quarter. Here's how many millions some of its largest hedge-fund backers lost.
Johannes Eisele/Contributor/Getty Uber's bumpy ride in the public markets continued during the third quarter.  Shares of the ride-hailing giant fell another 34% during the period as investors shied away from growth stocks associated with money-losing companies.  Several of the hedge funds backing the stock held onto their shares during the quarter, absorbing millions in losses on paper.  Here are some of the biggest funds that took heavy losses on their Uber stakes last quarter.  Watch Uber trade live on Markets Insider. Uber's stock struggled to pick up steam during the third quarter.  Shares fell 34% during the period, dropping more than 7% in a single day, after bottom-line losses of more than $1 billion overshadowed its third-quarter revenue beat.   The ride-hailing giant has had a difficult time finding its footing since entering the public markets in May as investors push back on money-losing business models. But that hasn't stopped hedge funds from standing pat with their positions. Some even piled more into the company's shares.  Hedge funds are required to disclose their ownership stakes in public companies on a quarterly basis through 13F filings.  Most of the firms included on the list below maintained the size of their stakes in Uber throughout the quarter. One fund added shares, but the value of the stake still fell because of the decline in the company's share price.  Here are some of the largest hedge funds that got stung by their stakes in Uber during the third quarter, ordered by increasing size of losses.5.

Facebook has released Instagram content moderation data for the first time
This story was delivered to Business Insider Intelligence Digital Media Briefing subscribers earlier this morning. To check to see if you already have access to Business Insider Intelligence through your company, click here. For the first time, Facebook included Instagram data in the publication of its biannual Transparency Report, released Wednesday, in which it discloses the actions it has taken to combat malicious content. The report is worth watching as it signals where and when Facebook is actually willing to crack down on its platforms, especially as CEO Mark Zuckerberg doubles down on his anti-censorship stance. In Q3 2019, Instagram removed over 2 million pieces of content in four categories: sexual exploitation of children, terrorist propaganda, self-harm promotion, and the trafficking of drugs and firearms. For comparison, Facebook removed over 35 million pieces of content from the platform tied to the same four categories, along with six additional categories including spam, fake accounts, hate speech, bullying, violent content, and adult nudity. It should be noted absolute counts of content removals are difficult to assess without greater context. For example, it's impossible to determine if 35 million or 2 million pieces of content represent a significant proportion of harmful content on the platform, or whether the difference between the two figures is meaningful. See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:US Cellular expanded its partnership with Amdocs to digitize sales and service systemsElektra Labs launched an online catalog for evaluating digital health monitoring toolsNike is ending its pilot with Amazon

Apple could beat Samsung and Huawei to become the leader in 5G smartphones next year, even though it's late to the game (AAPL)
Marcio Jose Sanchez/AP Images Apple could lead the 5G smartphone market next year, despite the fact that it's one of the few major smartphone makers that hasn't launched a 5G phone yet, according to Strategy Analytics. Apple is expected to bring 5G support to all three of its new iPhones next year. If Apple's 2020 iPhones match upgrade rates for this year's new iPhones, Apple could claim the top spot in the 5G smartphone market, according to the research firm. That position may be short-lived, however, as Strategy Analytics predicts that Samsung will claim the top spot in the long term. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Judy Chicago review – a soul-baring showdown with the grim reaper
Baltic, GatesheadThis stunning show leads us on a fiercely feminist journey from Earth’s creation to a looming ecological armageddonJudy Chicago likes to pull the curtain back on things we’d rather keep hidden. The clatter of curtain hoops and the swoosh of material proceeds childbirth, the arrival of death, the examination of a battered body. For Chicago these subjects are to be painted, photographed, sketched, stitched and hung on gallery walls. It seems likely that she’d fill the lull in dinner-party conversation with a question like: “Will I die screaming in pain?”But Chicago is not interested in making us squirm. Instead she is intrigued by what it means to be alive on this planet in all its gory pain and glory. The survey of her 50-year career at the Baltic is both personal and universal; the voice that narrates Chicago’s fears, anxieties and pleasures finds an echo in my own head. And presumably all of us have wondered how we will greet death. Continue reading...
