We present new relationships between halo masses (Mh) and several galaxy properties, including r*-band luminosities (Lr), stellar (Mstar) and baryonic masses, stellar velocity dispersions (σ), and black hole masses (MBH). Approximate analytic expressions are given. In the galaxy halo mass range 3×1010 Msolar<=Mh<=3×1013 Msolar the Mh-Lr, Mstar-Mh, and MBH-Mh relations are well represented by a double power law, with a break at Mh,break~3×1011 Msolar, corresponding to a mass in stars Mstar~1.2×1010 Msolar, to an r*-band luminosity Lr~5×109 Lsolar, to a stellar velocity dispersion σ~=88 km s-1, and to a black hole mass MBH~9×106 Msolar. The σ-Mh relation can be approximated by a single power law, although a double power law is a better representation. Although there are significant systematic errors associated with our method, the derived relationships are in good agreement with the available observational data and have comparable uncertainties. We interpret these relations in terms of the effect of feedback from supernovae and from the active nucleus on the interstellar medium. We argue that the break of the power laws occurs at a mass that marks the transition between the dominance of the stellar and the AGN feedback.
