How will USMNT fare at Gold Cup without Tyler Adams, one of its best players?

The United States men’s national team will be without one of its best players at the 2019 Gold Cup.

Tyler Adams, who was initially named to the 23-man roster for this summer’s tournament, has pulled out due to acute on chronic groin issues, U.S. Soccer announced late Tuesday.

The recovery timeline is a minimum of 6-8 weeks. The 20-year-old Adams, who has not had an offseason in 16 months, suffered an abductor injury in April playing for RB Leipzig. He returned for the final game of Leipzig’s season, but had not recovered to full health.

The USMNT hoped he would with time. Adams was originally scheduled to join up with the team in Minnesota on Tuesday night. U.S. Soccer had given him an extra two weeks to recuperate. But Adams was unable to.

FC Dallas right back Reggie Cannon will replace him in the squad.

How damaging is Adams’ injury to USMNT?

U.S. coach Gregg Berhalter had planned to play Adams in a versatile, “inverted” right back position rather than in midfield. Nick Lima, his backup, will likely step into the starting lineup with Adams ruled out.

But his absence will be a significant blow. Not only is Adams either the best or second-best American player at the moment, his skill set is uniquely suited for that specialized right back role. The U.S. is already without its best traditional right back, DeAndre Yedlin. Now it is worryingly threadbare at fullback.

The gulf between Adams and whoever replaces him is wide enough that a position of strength has suddenly become one of weakness. And that’s the last thing the already-ailing USMNT needs right now.

The Yanks kick off their Gold Cup campaign next Tuesday, June 18, against Guyana in Minnesota.

    Here's the next disaster in retail. Hint: it's not J.C. Penney dying

    Thanks to shoppers spending cautiously on clothes in recent months — despite a rallying stock market and low 3.7% unemployment rate — retailers of all kinds are sitting on mountains of excess inventory. Now that inventory must be worked off at profit-margin-busting prices in order to make way for the lucrative, full-price garb targeted to back to school shoppers in August and September. That backdrop sets the stage for scores of earnings misses, lowered profit outlooks and downtrodden earnings calls with Wall Street when the retail sector begins to release results in mid-August.

    When To Sell Stocks: Get Ready For An Exit When The Group's Leaders Crumble

    There's no reason to take profits in an emerging leader when the stock shows accumulation and breaks out from an early-stage base. But after big runs and a series of breakouts, leaders in an industry group invariably start to show signs of wear and tear, mostly due to persistent signs of institutional selling. At some point, savvy fund managers and big investors cash out and rotate into other areas of the market.

    Suze Orman says you need $5 million to retire — which is nonsense

    Author and personal-finance guru Suze Orman ruffled a lot of feathers in a recent podcast, saying that people need $5 million — maybe even $10 million — in order to retire. Orman was responding to a question about the “financial independence, retire early,” or “FIRE,” movement, a growing online trend in which people in their 30s or younger just stop working. Generally, these folks aim much lower — more like $1 million or so — then adjust their cost of living downward.

    Micron Technology Stock Upgraded: What You Need to Know

    Micron Technology (NASDAQ: MU) stock is on fire.

Now, with two months still remaining in the fourth quarter, a second analyst -- Goldman Sachs -- is lending a hand, and helping to move Micron stock up a further 3% or so in Monday trading.

This business structure, called a variable-interest entity, became common among Chinese companies because Beijing restricts foreign investment in certain sectors, such as the internet. It also enables firms to raise money abroad and lets early investors get their funds out of the country. Tencent Holdings Ltd., Meituan Dianping and Baidu Inc. all hew to various versions of the VIE, allowing them to exploit a gap in Chinese law.

The report, which cited people "familiar with the matter," called the move a "high-stakes attempt to get its financial house in order" before its debt of nearly $4 billion matures within the next few years. J.C. Penney issued a press release to counter Reuters' report, stating that its liquidity was strong, that it had "no significant debt maturities coming due in the near term," and that it hadn't hired any advisors for an "in-court restructuring or bankruptcy."
