    Investing Club Stock Profile: Industrial gas giant Linde has the pricing power to thrive in periods of higher inflation
    The Honda Classic delivered a stunning final round from PGA National and we now dissect the PGA Tour golf power rankings before the API. If you’d asked a casual observer if there was any chance that Daniel Berger didn’t win The Honda Classic as he entered Sunday’s final 18 holes with a five-shot lead, the majority of people would tell you that he had the victory secured already. That, however, doesn’t take into account the immense challenge that PGA National gives even PGA Tour players — nor does it factor Sepp Straka going nuclear on the field. After a double-bogey on the third hole and then two more bogeys in his next three holes, Berger found himself already caught by Shane Lowry with Sepp Straka and others nipping at the heels of the lead as well. And for a moment, it looked as if the former Open champion Lowry was going to run away with it in his own right. Instead, Lowry somewhat plateaued down the stretch while Straka kept putting himself in great position. And that came to a...
    CNBC's Jim Cramer said the rally in infrastructure-related stocks Monday demonstrates the growing influence of retail investors on Wall Street. The "Mad Money" host expressed surprise that companies such as steelmaker Nucor and construction materials supplier Martin Marietta moved solidly higher during Monday's session, which was the first since the House of Representatives passed a more than $1 trillion infrastructure bill late Friday. "Historically, you had to buy before something good happens, and then sell into the news. The smart money always loaded up and crushed bids when stories broke, often leading to big losses for anyone who bought the news," Cramer said. "Not this market, though. The new pattern is insane if you've got experience, but it's making fortunes for newcomers." Cramer pointed to Nucor, in particular, to make his case. While he noted he's maintained an optimistic outlook on Nucor, he said there have been others on Wall Street who believed its stock had fully priced in most of the potential benefit from an infrastructure deal. "In the old days, once we found out Congress had finally passed...
    In the final WNBA Power Rankings, we take stock of the season with an eye towards the playoffs and championship contenders. The 2021 WNBA regular season is over, which means that four of the league’s 12 teams are done for the season. Among those four, the biggest shock has to be the perennial contenders Los Angeles have missed the postseason for the first time since 2011. Joining them outside of the postseason picture are the Fever, the Dream, and the Mystics. That means the New York Liberty are headed to the postseason! Backing in with a 12-20 record and winning because they had the tiebreaker over the also 12-20 Mystics and Sparks, the Liberty are set for some playoff basketball for the first time since 2017.

    The Marriner S. Eccles Federal Reserve building stands in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Tuesday, Aug. 18, 2020.Erin Scott | Bloomberg via Getty Images Many of the indicators of stock market euphoria are flashing bright red signals as the market barrels ahead to uncharted new heights. There are many tools in the financial toolbox to evaluate stock market euphoria, and here is one that is as frightening as any. The chart below measures margin debt as a percentage of GDP. Zoom In IconArrows pointing outwards As of December 30, 2020, margin debt in the U.S. was a staggering $778 billion, 34% higher than the $679 million amount a year earlier. Measured as a percentage, margin debt is now 3.6% of GDP, a figure that can be added to the list of frightening statistics of current market exuberance. Note that we have now surpassed the peaks of 2000 and 2008 in terms of margin debt as a percentage of GDP. Both of those periods were followed by major stock market declines. Given today's comparable state of euphoria, it...
    EFE videos Trump faces his second impeachment trial in Congress starting tomorrow Washington, Feb 8 (EFE) .- The second impeachment trial, known in the United States as “impeachment,” of former President Donald Trump will begin this Tuesday in a divided Senate that will hardly condemn him for his responsibility in the assault on the Capitol. The process will begin tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. (18:00 GMT) in the Senate, where the 100 senators will serve as jury. According to what was agreed on Monday between Senate leaders, Democrat Chuck Schumer and Republican Mitch McConnell, the first day will be dedicated to evaluating whether this impeachment is constitutional, something to which legislators will dedicate four hours of debate, followed of a vote on the subject. LEGALITY OF THE PROCESS A majority of experts in the Constitution have opined that the process is legitimate even if it can no longer result in the removal of Trump, because it evaluates events that occurred when he was still president. “There is no ‘January exception’ in the Constitution, which allows presidents to abuse their power in...
    Social media site Reddit took out a brief advertisement during the 2021 Super Bowl that celebrated the power of the underdog following the trading frenzy inspired by subreddit WallStreetBets that involved GameStop stocks. The ad was a mere five seconds long, and it was nothing more that a screenshot of text surrounded by a red border. While it may have been short and not the typical ad that most viewers are used to seeing during the Super Bowl, the message was a nod to the power of the people when they come together and act upon issues that are important to them. In large letters the ad read, “Wow. This really happened.” “If you’re reading this, it means our bet paid off,” it continued, adding that “big game spots are expensive, so we couldn’t buy a full one.” “But we were inspired and decided to spend our marketing budget on 5 seconds of airtime,” it read. “One thing we learned from our communities last week is that underdogs can accomplish just about anything when they come together around a common...
    Coronavirus updates: South Africa variant found in US; Michael Strahan reportedly tests positive Why you should care about data privacy even if you have “nothing to hide” GameStop head-spinning volatility may be only the beginning of a new wave A behavioral economist thinks the wild trading in GameStop is the beginning of a major shift in investing power. "The people are saying, 'Screw Wall Street,'" said the University of Chicago's Alex Imas.  © Provided by CNBC A GameStop store in Hollywood, California, busy with customers waiting in line to enter the video game retailer on January 27, 2021. Trading in GameStop has reached fever-pitched levels that shows little sign of breaking.  Load Error Despite the plunge in prices during Thursday's session after several brokerages put limits on buying and selling, the stock is up a head-spinning 500 percent in a week. It's possible this is just the beginning of a new wave for Wall Street.   "The people are saying, 'Screw Wall Street,'" said Alex Imas, a behavioral economist at the University of Chicago's Booth School of...

    Former UFC featherweight Jeremy Kennedy joins Bellator roster What not to buy on Amazon Prime Day Why this frustrated value stock pro sees shades of 1999 in the market now — and bargains in the future VITALIY KATSENELSON'S CONTRARIAN EDGE © Getty Images A year ago, I said the U.S. stock market was “partying like it’s 1999.” I was off by a year. Last year was missing the necessary euphoric speculation, which ironically arrived in the middle of a worldwide pandemic. Load Error Just as history doesn’t repeat itself but rhymes, so does U.S. stock market behavior. Though there are a lot of similarities between 1999 and 2020, there are differences, too.  In 1999 the market was flooded with dot-coms — “new economy” companies that traded at astronomical valuations, were losing money, and had unproven business models. Today we have a lot of “new economy” companies, too, but unlike in 1999, these companies generate cash flows. Most appear to be real businesses, but it is not always clear how sustainable their competitive advantages are. This is paramount when...
    The combination of greed and power often spin out of control and challenge the enforceable rule of law and the countervailing force of the organized civic community. When greed and power are exercised by giant multinational corporations that escape the discipline of the nation-state, the potential for evil becomes infinite in nature. Enough is never enough. Global giant companies, aided and abetted by their corporate attorneys and accountants, can literally decide how little taxes they are going to pay by shifting profits and expenses among different tax haven countries such as Ireland, Luxembourg, and Panama. These same companies then proceed to lobby any nation, including most prominently the United States. Congress and the White House are pushed to cut formal tax rates, pack the tax laws with loopholes, and lower further the effective tax rate. The formal top tax rate for billions of company profits is now 21%, while the actual tax rate is lower – much lower for banks, insurance companies, drug companies, and behemoth tech companies like Apple that master tax avoidance. “Generous” is not a word one can...
    Jeff Bornstein could not control his emotions. “I love this company,” began the tough-talking, hard-driving chief financial officer of one of the world’s most storied corporations. Then he broke down in tears. It was August 2017, less than a month after John Flannery, the brand-new CEO of General Electric, had taken the reins. Flannery and Bornstein had both devoted their entire careers to GE, like most of those present for this moment at the annual summer meeting for top executives in Crotonville, NY, a leafy campus where the company’s professionals spend months being indoctrinated in the corporation’s proud culture. But what should have been a celebration felt more like a wake. Days earlier, the two men had met in Schenectady to examine the books at GE Power, the century-old company’s most venerable and profitable division — and had found a dry well where they expected cash. Power’s “solid profits … were illusory,” write Thomas Gryta and Ted Mann in “Lights Out: Pride, Delusion, and the Fall of General Electric” (Houghton Mifflin), out July 21. “The accounting tricks that looked like...
