College football rankings: Miami survives to stick at No. 2, top 10 stays the same

This week's college football rankings stayed largely unchanged, with the top teams winning easy nonconference games.

Miami overcame a surprising challenge against Virginia on Saturday, and the Hurricanes remain No. 2 in the latest college football rankings released Sunday.

This week's top 10 stayed almost completely the same, with the only change being Oklahoma State's exit from the top 10 in the AP Poll after a loss to West Virginia. TCU took the No. 10 spot in the AP Poll after it defeated Texas Tech. Oklahoma State, with an 8-3 record, fell all the way to No. 18 in the AP Poll. The top 10 in the Coaches Poll stayed unchanged.

Northwestern, Virginia Tech and Boise State entered the rankings this week. Northwestern posted a 39-0 win over Big Ten opponent Minnesota on Saturday.

    Berkshire Hathaway shares look really cheap using Warren Buffett's own method of valuing stocks

    Companies pay investors dividends but they also retain some of their earnings. Over time, companies invest these retained earnings at a higher rate of return and that ultimately boosts their share prices, benefiting their investors. J. P. Morgan analyst Sarah DeWitt calculates that Berkshire's share of undistributed earnings from its stock portfolio is $12 billion, or about $5.19 per Berkshire B share.

    Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) Q3 Earnings Preview: Here's What to Look Out For

    Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) is expected to deliver a year-over-year increase in earnings on higher revenues when it reports results for the quarter ended September 2018. This widely-known consensus outlook gives a good sense of the company's earnings picture, but how the actual results compare to these estimates is a powerful factor that could impact its near-term stock price. The earnings report, which is expected to be released on October 24, 2018, might help the stock move higher if these key numbers are better than expectations.

    Express Scripts covers Amgen, Lilly migraine drugs, excludes Teva

    Express Scripts Holding Co, one of the largest U.S. prescription benefits managers, will cover new migraine drugs from Eli Lilly and Amgen Inc, but exclude a rival medication from Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd after price negotiations with all three manufacturers. The decision represents a setback for Israel-based Teva , which is in the midst of a corporate restructuring and had hoped to capture a sizable share of the multibillion-dollar migraine market. Express Scripts is also taking steps to limit use of the Amgen and Lilly migraine drugs to patients it says are most likely to benefit from them.
