There was a different kind of bull run last week: a literal bull was found on New Jersey Transit tracks, delaying trains and giving commuters a wild late-to-work excuse. The longhorn — which had escaped from a slaughterhouse — was sent to an animal sanctuary. Your move, Pixar.

These 3 Dow Stocks Are Set to Soar in 2023 and Beyond

Posted by Travis Hoium on Sunday, December 10, 2023, In : #WATCHLiST 

Dow stocks are known as the bellwethers of the economy, and they are some of the most stable businesses in the world. But lately, some of the Dow stocks have been beaten up because they have missed some important industry changes.

As we look forward to 2024, I think the problems that Dow stocks Disney (NYSE: DIS), Intel (NASDAQ: INTC), and Verizon (NYSE: VZ) have faced over the past few years will turn around and provide opportunities for investors.

Vol Mismatch | Volatility pickup seen in the coming days

(Bloomberg) -- Investors are facing a pivotal week as a key measure of inflation that hits Tuesday and the Federal Reserve’s interest-rate decision on Wednesday are expected to set the tone for the stock market and economy heading into 2024.

In recent weeks, bond yields plunged, and investors have grown euphoric that the Federal Reserve would slash interest rates next year.

But hold on, says Harvard economist Ken Rogoff, former chief economist at the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

“Even with the recent partial retreat in interest rates, they remain well above the ultra-low levels to which policymakers had grown accustomed, and they are likely to stay at such levels even as inflation retreats,” he wrote on Project Syndicate....

2 Small-Cap Stocks With Big Potential in 2024

Investing in small-cap stocks can come with some incredible upside. These are stocks that don't trade at high valuations, which means that if they're successful there can be a lot of room for their valuations to rise higher in the future. On the flip side, however, they are often riskier options than larger, more established businesses.

A couple of small-cap stocks that have the potential to achieve significant gains next year are InMode (NASDAQ: INMD) and Bitfarms (NASDAQ: BITF). Here's why t...

Becoming a female self-made millionaire is no easy feat. It not only requires patience, discipline, great ideas and persistence — but women also face additional challenges when it comes to building wealth.

There are several factors that contribute to making the road to riches more difficult for women, one of them being the gender pay gap. Overall, women working full-time earn 83 cents for every $1 that men working full-time earn, and the gap is wider for women of color, a TIAA study found.
