It became official on March 14. Toys “R” US officially initiated the bankruptcy process. For stocks within the toy industry, this was considered a major blow.

For the 10 years through the end of its most recent fiscal year, Harvard’s endowment grew at an annualized rate of just 4.4% — despite employing some of the best and brightest the investment advisory industry has to....More>>>

On the surface, all is right at Intel (NASDAQ:INTC).
Thanks to the cloud, Intel’s data center business is robust, with $5.5 billion in sales and $2.74 billion in operating income in the last quarter.

The Internet of Things — that oft-used and generic term that describes the internet-connection-enabling technology being placed in virtually everything — has been hyped for years. And why not? According to tech researcher IDC, spending on the IoT is supposed to grow to $1.2 trillion by 2022, a 14% growth rate each year from now until then.
That should be great news for IoT hardware....More>>>
The big day is now less than four weeks away. On June 7, Canada’s Senate will vote on bill C-45, which is better known as the Cannabis Act. This bill aims to make recreational marijuana legal for purchase by adults 18 years of age and over. If approved by the Senate, the Cannabis Act likely will move swiftly through Canada’s federal government, allowing it to become the first developed....More>>>
In this segment of Motley Fool Money, host Chris Hill asks analysts Jason Moser, David Kretzmann, and Ron Gross to share which companies they have their eyes on, and why. Their picks are Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV), niche healthcare play iRhythm Technologies (NASDAQ:IRTC), and Canadian cannabis company Canopy Growth (NYSE:CGC).

However, intense opposition to....More>>>
I like to allocate anywhere between 5-15% of my portfolio to lottery stocks. Usually they are cyclical or have a lot of leverage. And most of the time there is some sort of catalyst that will unlock value on the horizon. I would not advice large positions in any of these stocks. It is also best not to spend large amounts of time analyzing them as they will be small positions and are depending on....More>>>
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has taken down a cryptocurrency scam offering. According to the SEC website, the commission has obtained an emergency asset freeze to halt a fast-moving initial coin offering (ICO) fraud. While this is not technically a bitcoin fraud, the reality is that it shows 1) how willing the public is to chase gains and 2) how willing potentially scammers....More>>>
Using conventional economic thinking, an investor should move some of their money from stocks to bonds as interest rates rise because they are less risky, and the rate of return is better. So as U.S. Treasury rates hit 3%, I’m sure there are some conventional thinkers out there that will start to sell their stocks and move into bonds.

It’s been a rough ride for gold. Traders and speculators have spent 2018 dumping gold as interest rates have risen. After all, gold won’t ever pay interest or dividends. Some central banks have been expected sellers of gold rather than buyers in 2018. And finding a gold bug who is very enthusiastic about gold is becoming a chore.
With gold having dropped from over $1,350 per ounce....More>>>
