The Hunger Games

blogs.reuters.com — The IPO train keeps on running, and on Thursday, it's being fueled with hamburgers. One of the new companies set to begin trade is Habit Restaurants, a chain offering "char-grilled burgers and sandwiches" that operates in California, Utah, Arizona, and strangely, New Jersey.

As Shaky as a Fiddler on the Roof

blogs.reuters.com — It's nice to look back every month or so and see just how far the market has come, and, well, it's come a long way. And it's worth noting yet again that investors are starting to talk about corrections.

Building a Safe

blogs.reuters.com — The housing-market recovery, the improvement in the unemployment rate and the relatively strong consumer sentiment figures seen out of the United States in recent months bodes well for Home Depot and other big-ticket retailers ( like Lowe's, for instance) as they report this quarter's earnings.

Thinking global, earning local

blogs.reuters.com — Earnings season has really closed down, with Wal-Mart out of the way, and with the markets sitting just a touch off record highs, it's worth looking at how earnings fared and what valuations suggest right now. There's a general consensus that even as the market has refocused and surged to all-time highs that things are only "slightly" overvalued.

Auction Calling!

blogs.reuters.com — It's no secret that the Treasury market has changed a bit in recent months due to concerns from banks about holding too much in the way of securities and running afoul of various rules international regulators are setting up.

The Dendreon Decline

blogs.reuters.com — Some bankruptcies are utter surprises â like GT Advanced Technologies earlier this year â but often, they come after a company has been circling the drain for a while. One such case came earlier this week for prostate cancer drugmaker Dendreon Corp, a long-time favorite among day traders and boosters of the company, a number of whom were personally affected by the disease in question.

China deal sends shares to 1-month high, ruble surges

dailymail.co.uk — NEW YORK, Nov 10 (Reuters) - World equity markets hit their highest level in more than a month on Monday, lifted by a deal to give global investors easier access to China's $3.9 trillion stock market and more gains in U.S. equities.

My dinner with The Hulk

blogs.reuters.com — Walt Disney Co headlines the day's earnings, and its eagerly anticipated third-quarter report is likely to illustrate how one company can benefit from some unique content that outpowers all expectations.

I’m just a bill…

blogs.reuters.com — This week is chock full of events to keep investors interested in things, be it election day this Tuesday or the jobs data on Friday. Itâs hard to escape the notion that the United States may be starting to hit a stride when it comes to growth and thereâs some expectation that this would positively affect U.S.

GOP Senate takeover could boost sagging energy stocks

reuters.com — Credit: Reuters/Lucy Nicholson An oil field is seen at sunrise near Bakersfield, California October 14, 2014. Political oddsmakers say Republicans should win the Senate in next week's mid-term elections. Although major reforms on big issues like taxes or immigration are thought unlikely, GOP control of Congress could see laws advanced in a handful of areas, with energy topping the list.
