    Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) is still struggling to fire on all cylinders, but investors nonetheless bid shares of the dot-com pioneer higher on Friday after it posted mixed fourth-quarter results. Revenue clocked in at $482.2 million for the final three months of 2018, a 5% decline from a year earlier, but a 5% sequential improvement.

    Lumber Liquidators (NYSE:LL), Camping World Holdings (NYSE:CWH), and Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) have taken a beating this year. They’re among the biggest losers through the first three quarters of 2018. Let’s go over why I think they have a shot at bouncing back in the next three months.

  • [By Anders Bylund]

    Sogou’s shares are prone to big swings for a couple of simple reasons.

    As a Chinese business, many American investors don’t feel connected to Sogou’s business and might not have access to some important sources of information about this company and its stock. Though Sogou has been around for nearly a decade now, it only entered the public markets in November of 2017. It’s a new ticker, untested on the market, and not always easily understood through year-over-year or longer-term analyses. At the IPO, Chinese internet giants Tencent (NASDAQOTH:TCEHY) and Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) combined for a total ownership of 82% of Sogu’s business. Those stakes later declined to 71%, but Sohu and Tencent remain Sogou’s largest shareholders, with 96% of the voting power in shareholder elections and votes. Regular investors hold a very small stake in Sogou, which tends to boost the stock’s volatility.

    Moreover, Chinese regulators launched an investigation of Sogou in June, forcing the company to shut down parts of its online advertising operations for 10 days in early July. The company is accused of showing video ads that insulted a national hero. That blackout will reduce Sogou’s third-quarter revenues by a significant but unannounced amount.

Hot Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy For 2019

As the dust settles from Monday’s flash crash, we’re starting to get a better picture of what actually happened.

It turns out the carnage can be traced back to a kind of financial “weapon of mass destruction” — or WMD. Traders regularly use these instruments to siphon cash out of the market. But one wrong move, and BOOM! — as we saw firsthand earlier in the week.

So today, we’re going to shine the light on this dangerous weapon, and also look at what you can do to protect your wealth and profit from the fallout…

Warren Buffett Exposes “Lethal Danger”

The instruments I’m talking about are called derivatives. They’re simply side bets that investors and traders make on different market movements. While that might sound innocent, legendary investor Warren Buffett had scalding words about them:

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Watch Right Now

The U.K. reached an accord with international inspectors that will help keep the flow of nuclear materials going after the country leaves the European Union.

The International Atomic Energy Agency’s board of governors could approve the U.K.’s draft safeguards this week in Vienna, according to a statement. The IAEA deal will “replace existing agreements” between the U.K. and European Atomic Energy Community, or Euratom, that are needed for the import and export of fuel used in nuclear power plants.

Euratom’s main function is to safeguard nuclear fuel, making sure it isn’t diverted to make weapons. The U.K. will lose that service from Euratom once it departs the EU. Companies including Urenco Ltd. and Electricite de France SA had warned that leaving Euratom without adequately replacing its monitoring services could endanger Britain’s nuclear industry.

Membership in Euratom has helped Britain become a leading manufacturer of reactor fuel and a key participant in EU-led nuclear research projects. Prime Minister Theresa May’s government has drawn fire for the decision to leave Euratom. The organization governs the transport of radioactive materials, reactor fuel, medical isotopes and commercial atomic technology.

    That type of reaction is a bearish signal. What’s not bearish: the CEOs of Carnival Corp. (CCL) and Norwegian Cruise Line (NCLH) telling TheStreet they see no signs of recession anywhere in their business, and don’t understand why their stocks are being penalized.

    About Summit M

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    When a dividend yield gets over 10%, it’s usually a sign that the market believes a cut is coming down the pipeline. Given that Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP) and Summit Midstream Partners (NYSE:SMLP) currently yield 11.6% and 14.5%, respectively, the market seems to believe that will be the case for both of those master limited partnerships. That’s why investors should steer clear of those two high-yielding stocks and instead consider Crestwood Equity Partners’ (NYSE:CEQP) much safer 7% payout.

Best Gold Stocks To Watch For 2018: Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK-B)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Frankel]

    Warren Buffett told CNBC that Berkshire Hathaway’s (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) stake in Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL)became even more massive during the first quarter. Specifically, Berkshire added about 75 million shares of the iPhone maker, bringing the company’s total stake to over 240 million shares, worth approximately $43 billion as of this writing. This easily makes Apple the largest position in Berkshire’s stock portfolio, according to the latest available information.

    Famed investor Warren Buffett loves Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) stock. The Oracle of Omaha has been steadily increasingBerkshire Hathaway’s (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B)stake over the past couple of years, and it sounds like Buffett has no intention of putting the brakes on buying Apple shares.

Buffett replied that he wasn’t sure how much of being a great investor was innate and how much could be learned, but he did discuss some qualities all great investors should have.

  • [By ]

    Like most investors, Warren Buffett didn’t have a great first quarter. Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) gained less than 1% through the end of March. That was enough to beat the S&P 500 index, but I doubt Buffett broke out his ukelele to strum and celebrate.

The idea of retiring young is not new, although it may seem impossible if youre juggling student loans or other debt while also trying to save for things like buying a home or starting a family. Perhaps the idea of traditional retirement, in the sense of stopping work altogether and playing golf all day is not particularly motivational, but how about just having the freedom to choose how you spend your time without concern for a paycheck? The Early Retirement Extreme movement offers ideas like living in an RV or abstaining from extras like shopping, vacations and sporting events, and that might work for you. Others may want to live a more mainstream lifestyle but still have that dream of at least cutting back on work before the more traditional retirement age of 65. Here are some ideas to cut a few corners and save more without having to feel like youre making an extreme change.

Cantor Fitzgerald LP’s Shawn Matthews is stepping down as head of the firm’s broker-dealer unit and plans to start a hedge fund.

Matthews spent nine years leading the division, Cantor Fitzgerald & Co., working to wrest talent and market share from larger investment banks that retrenched after the 2008 financial crisis. He’s launching a macro fund called Hondius Capital, looking to capitalize on a new era of market turmoil, Cantor Chief Executive Officer Howard Lutnick announced in an internal memo.

The plan is to raise as much as $500 million, of which 20 percent has already been secured, Matthews said in a telephone interview. He’s seeking to open this year and hire roughly 10 people. Hondius will seek to benefit from renewed market volatility and central banks beginning to take liquidity out of the system, he said. Matthews, 51, isn’t being replaced, according to a person with knowledge of the decision who asked not to be identified discussing internal deliberations.

Indonesia’s economy expanded at a slower pace last quarter than economists had forecast, making it difficult for Bank Indonesia to increase interest rate to shield the currency. The central bank has stepped up buying of sovereign bonds from the secondary market to stem a selloff and intervened in the forex market to stabilize the rupiah without much success.

    What’s happening, Chris, is economic activity continues to pick up around the world. Plus, cash continues to get eaten away by credit card usage. And, there’s been a lot more cross-border economic activity, which is high margin, even higher margin, for Visa and Mastercard(NYSE:MA). And, there’s India to consider. 1.4 billion people there. Visa is the market leader there by quite a wide margin, has all the deals in place, and it’s still just getting started there. It sees a lot of opportunity in India. It’s also filed to start transaction business in China, which is still a few years down the road, but still.

    The biggest threat facing Brink’s is the very nature of the industry it inhabits. While cash will, for the foreseeable future, probably serve a purpose in the global economy, I don’t think it can be argued that its use will soon be on the decline. Mastercard Inc (NYSE:MA) has long maintained that about 85% of the world’s transactions were facilitated using cash. Last year, the company updated that number to being just above 80% and, given current trends, I believe this number will continue to fall.

Lyft said it is investigating new accusations that employees improperly accessed the private data of its riders.

The announcement came after the tech news site The Information published a story on Thursday that raised questions about how the ridehail company’s employees might be using sensitive information about customers.

The article centered on a post made on an app called Blind, an anonymous message board that provides an outlet for current and former employees at companies to gossip about their employers.

The anonymous poster claimed to have seen Lyft employees look up “exes,” as well as data on Hollywood actresses, porn stars and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, The Information reported.

Hours after the report, Lyft cofounders Logan Green and John Zimmer e-mailed employees about the matter.

“Our company’s values are based on creating a healthy environment of trust and accountability. If we find a violation, we will take appropriate action,” read the e-mail obtained by CNN Tech, which contained the subject line “Upholding trust.”
