Millennial Moms, as Digiday puts it, are "quite literally, the mother of all generations: Millennial moms account for almost 90 percent of the 1.5 million new mothers within the last year, up 50 percent from a decade ago.” Not to mention that these women have spent countless hours earning an education and preparing themselves for the next 50 years of following their career passions. So, why must Millennial women make the choice between being a full-time mom and having a full-time career?

The choice between motherhood and career pursuit is hard and has many consequences. When that baby is handed to you in the hospital and you realize that you are responsible for that precious child’s needs, it is hard to think anything else is important. In fact, many women tell me that any career desires they have seem selfish. And, any mention of their career dreams is met with criticism from even their most trusted and loved friends and family.

As Zillow moves into lending and house flipping, there’s a lot of fear among investors that it’s trying to elbow its way into some already crowded spaces where it’s strengths won’t translate.

Hot Heal Care Stocks To Watch For 2019

The market has been tough on companies that didn’t quite meet expectations this earnings season, and Friday provided further examples. It’s not necessarily that firms aren’t doing well, but the bar has been raised and if you’re a company that doesn’t climb over that bar, you’re likely to get punched.

Deere & Company (NYSE: DE) on Friday became the latest big name to run into that particular buzz saw, missing Wall Street analysts’ average projection for earnings per share with a tally of $3.14 and seeing its shares fall in pre-market futures trading before jumping higher once the market actually opened. Analysts had expected $3.33, according to third-party consensus estimates. In a way, however, DE was a victim of high expectations, because its earnings were up a lot year-over-year but down vs. the Street’s consensus.

DE said in its release that the company is experiencing higher raw material and freight costs. This could point to the impact of rising energy prices on big industrial firms, and is something to keep in mind when the next earnings season rolls around in July. What DE didn’t say also stood out after its competitor Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT) earlier this earnings season said the Q1 represented a “high water mark.” DE didn’t repeat that sort of language in its release, and had a lot of nice things to say about a quarter that saw equipment net sales rise 34 percent based on what DE called “strength in key markets.”
