    With EPS Growth And More, Bright Horizons Family Solutions (NYSE:BFAM) Is Interesting

    So if you're like me, you might be more interested in profitable, growing companies, like Bright Horizons Family Solutions (NYSE:BFAM). While profit is not necessarily a social good, it's easy to admire a business than can consistently produce it. In comparison, loss making companies act like a sponge for capital - but unlike such a sponge they do not always produce something when squeezed.

    Ford tells dealers not to advertise Mustang Mach-E under MSRP

    Furthermore, conquest buyers are heading to Ford dealerships a year before the first of the electric crossovers are due on the market; a dealer outside Phoenix said two-thirds of the 47 people who've made reservations with him are new to his dealership, some also new to electric cars. In an attempt to keep customers happy once the traditional car shopping experience begins, CarsDirect reports that Ford wants to forbid dealers from advertising the Mach-E below MSRP. The revelation came out of a dealer bulletin, Ford explaining the restriction by saying it wants to "be competitive in the battery electric vehicle space by transacting in the way customers want to transact."

    Is Now An Opportune Moment To Examine Communications Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:JCS)?

    Communications Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:JCS), which is in the communications business, and is based in United States, saw a significant share price rise of over 20% in the past couple of months on the NASDAQGM. As a small cap stock, hardly covered by any analysts, there is generally more of an opportunity for mispricing as there is less activity to push the stock closer to fair value. Today I will analyse the most recent data on Communications Systems's outlook and valuation to see if the opportunity still exists.

    Is Yum! Brands, Inc. (YUM) A Good Stock To Buy?

    It seems that the masses and most of the financial media hate hedge funds and what they do, but why is this hatred of hedge funds so prominent? Truth be told, most hedge fund managers and other smaller players within this industry are very smart and skilled investors. Conversely, hedge funds' top 20 large-cap stock picks generated a return of 37.4% during the same 11-month period, with the majority of these stock picks outperforming the broader market benchmark.

    Ride review: Disney’s newest Star Wars attraction is a sight to behold (PHOTOS)

    It's hard to say Disney's Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is the best ride in the world when you haven't been on every ride in the world — but one is hard pressed to believe anything can touch what the theme park giant has achieved. The ride, which opens Dec. 5 to the public in Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park in Orlando, is a remarkable example of movie-to-ride making, set design, ride technology, storytelling and whatever other kitchen sink concept you wish to use. The ride — located in Disney's new Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge themed land — is just amazing, OK?

    Two of the most useful methods are hedge fund and insider trading moves.

Unlike the largest US hedge funds that are convinced Dow will soar past 40,000 or the world's most bearish hedge fund that's more convinced than ever that a crash is coming, our long-short investment strategy doesn't rely on bull or bear markets to deliver double digit returns.
