    Ted Baker soars on reports founder Ray Kelvin considering buyout

    Shares in British fashion retailer Ted Baker surged as much as 17% on Monday on reports that its founder and former chief executive Ray Kelvin would support a private equity buyout months after he quit over allegations of misconduct. Kelvin, who had been CEO since the company's launch in 1988, has indicated that he would support a deal to take the company private under the existing management, the Sunday Times reported. Speculation of a buyout comes after Ted Baker's shares lost more than a quarter of their value last month when the retailer warned that underlying profit for the year would fall short of analysts' estimates.

    ‘Enough is enough’: Warren officially introduces bill to cancel student debt

    Warren first pitched a student debt plan as a presidential candidate in April, and then started discussing the upcoming legislation in June. Taken together, Warren's plans attack student debt in three ways: Cancelling debt, reforming the predatory — or “lousy” — student loan system that's in place, and making college free for all. I was shocked when I woke up one morning … and saw that student loan debt had eclipsed credit card debt,” Rep. Clyburn said at a press conference to unveil the legislation.

    While Village Farms International, Inc. (TSE:VFF) shareholders are probably generally happy, the stock hasn't had particularly good run recently, with the share price falling 16% in the last quarter. We don't think that Village Farms International's modest trailing twelve month profit has the market's full attention at the moment. For shareholders to have confidence a company will grow profits significantly, it must grow revenue.
