They told me I had 15 minutes with Quentin Tarantino. “Quentin’s going to meet with you in a coffee shop,” my agent said. “A coffee shop?” “It’s to see whether or not he likes you,” she said. “Then he’ll let you know if he wants to see you for the

Citigroup Inc. said Chief Executive Officer Michael Corbat was unaware that the bank was in the process of closing a real estate loan to a Kushner Cos. venture when he met with Jared Kushner. Corbat requested the March 2017 meeting with Kushner, a senior adviser to President Donald Trump, to discuss U.S. trade policy and didn’t discuss the loan or any personal business with Kushner Cos., the bank’s general counsel said in a letter to four Democratic senators. New York-based Citigroup said the Kushner family has been a client for decades and the loan on a Brooklyn real estate project was made with no input from Corbat.
With markets turning more volatile and tech growth stories turning sour, beaten down biotech stocks are getting another look. That's why, for the "Off the Charts" segment of Tuesday's Mad Money episode, Jim Cramer checked in with colleague Carolyn Boroden, who runs the FibonnacciQueen.com website and also contributes to RealMoney.com. While it may still be early too jump on stocks in the sector, Boroden told Cramer that there are several names worth watching for buying opportunities once some key technical changes appear in their charts. Cramer and Boroden started by looking at a daily chart of the iShares NASDAQ Biotechnology ETF (IBB) . Boroden pointed out that IBB found support during February's
It’s been a big year for free speech at the Supreme Court. Two of the most high-profile cases argued before the court so far have revolved around free speech rights, four other cases on the docket this term involve free speech questions, and yet another case where the issue is paramount greets the court on Tuesday. The court today is hearing arguments on whether the state of California is trampling on the free speech rights of crisis pregnancy centers — nonprofit organizations that do not perform abortions and encourage women to seek alternatives to the procedure — by requiring them to post notices explaining patients’ ability to access abortion and other medical services. In December, attorneys for a baker at Masterpiece Cakeshop in Colorado argued that a state anti-discrimination law violates his free speech rights as a self-described cake artist by requiring him to make a wedding cake for a gay couple.
Marvel fans may be billing Avengers: Infinity War as “the most ambitious crossover event in history,” but some on the Internet clearly beg to differ. Following the Friday debut of the second trailer for the upcoming superhero extravaganza—which will
Working remotely is an increasingly popular option for many people, given how expensive it can be to live where many of the jobs are. But can you earn enough to get by while working from home? To help you find out, career-advice website FlexJobs, using data from salary and compensation site PayScale, compiled a list of the 14 most common remote jobs in their database and their average pay. Some of the salaries exceed the national median household income, which was $59,039 in 2016. The No. 1 most common remote job, in fact, pays almost $90,000 a year on average. While some of the job titles on the list, like "nurse" or "teacher," may sound more like conventional in-person positions, FlexJob is
President Donald Trump may not have realized on Monday that his executive order would step on Russia’s toes. Its official target was Venezuela, specifically the country’s plan to create the world’s first state-backed cryptocurrency, the petro, which went on sale Tuesday. Citing economic sanctions that the U.S. imposed against Venezuela in August, the order simply made clear that anyone who buys or uses the new cryptocurrency would be in breach of those sanctions, as would anyone under U.S. jurisdiction who helps Venezuela develop the petro.

Warren Buffett said his Berkshire Hathaway Inc. made only one “sensible” stand-alone acquisition last year, and it didn’t do much for his growing pile of cash. Berkshire paid $2.76 billion for its 38.6 percent stake in Pilot Travel Centers LLC, the owner of the Pilot Flying J truck stop chain, according to an insurance filing. Berkshire didn’t disclose the purchase price when it announced the deal in October, and hasn’t revealed the figure in subsequent reports to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Buffett is seeking large investments that will eat into his excess cash and earn better returns. The company ended last year with $116 billion in cash and Treasury bills amid what Buffett
Some people search high and low for tax deductions. But making them up–or artificially enhancing the ones you have–isn’t exactly keeping to the straight and narrow. Indeed, the IRS this year has specifically cautioned people about what it calls padding deductions. The IRS warns to avoid the temptation to falsely inflate deductions or expenses. In fact, the IRS includes the issue on its 2018 Dirty Dozen list of tax scams. In the IRS’s words, the majority of taxpayers file honest and accurate tax returns each year. However, as the IRS puts it, each year some people “fudge” their information. Falsely claiming deductions, expenses or credits on tax returns is serious, regardless of their type. The
Jeff Cleveland, Payden & Rygel chief economist, discusses what to expect from Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell's first FOMC meeting. Michael Zinn, UBS Financial Services, and John Blank, Zack’s Investment Research, weigh in.
General Electric Co. (GE) has been a dumpster fire. The stock is down roughly 55% over the past 12 months, and is hitting fresh 52-week lows on Tuesday. Shares couldn't gain any traction, closing just two pennies off session lows at $13.64, down 3.06% for the session. Earnings, cash flow and a massively underfunded pension fund have many investors worried about the long-time industrial stalwart. While GE was once a dividend-paying industrial titan, it's clearly lost its way. Even after halving its dividend in November, some investors still worry that another cut could come down the road. GE seemed like a safe, low valuation dividend-paying company. Obviously new revelations prove anything

If you own FDX stock, you’re probably hoping FedEx Corporation (NYSE:FDX) CEO and founder Fred Smith and the rest of his management team isn’t too worried. However, it would be corporate malpractice in my opinion, if FedEx wasn’t considering the ramifications
Broadcom(NASDAQ: AVGO) recently abandoned its hostile bid for Qualcomm (NASDAQ: QCOM) after President Trump blocked the deal on security concerns.

Exxon Mobil’s XOM diversified operations and strong focus on both upstream and downstream businesses have helped it to overcome several hurdles over the years, including the times when crude touched multi-year lows. Exxon expects its earnings to grow 135% by 2025, if crude trades at $60 per barrel. The stock seems to be shareholder friendly, as the oil supermajor’s current dividend yield is the highest since 1997.
Last Thursday, Sears Holdings (NASDAQ: SHLD) reported fourth-quarter results that were better than some analysts feared. There's no sign yet that Sears Holdings is approaching profitability in any meaningful sense. Sears Holdings' fourth-quarter adjusted EBITDA of $2 million was roughly in line with the updated guidance that the company published in mid-February, and it was a $63 million year-over-year improvement.
Historical fluctuations in the Nasdaq should provide a template for how bitcoin will trade going forward, especially considering their similar patterns. Recent declines in bitcoin may be foreign to traders accustomed to record-breaking returns, but the cryptocurrency's price chart looks awfully familiar to strategists at Morgan Stanley. It reminds the firm of how the Nasdaq traded in 2000, during the tech bubble's heyday.

GE will make varying upgrades to aging locomotives - some more than 20 years old - such as improvements to control systems or electrical circuitry.
