Jun.18 -- Google is trying to break in to the medical field and it might be able to with its new AI technology. By analyzing medical records, the company is able to predict outcomes such as the duration of your hospital stay and even your odds of dying. Bloomberg's Mark Bergen has more on "What'd You Miss?"
The US government and the general public are beginning to hear from corporate leaders about the shockingly cruel policy of separating families at the US-Mexico border. As Quartz At Work noted yesterday, most CEOs have been strangely silent on the issue, even as wide swaths of Americans, including conservatives and religious leaders, have denounced the…
It’s been another bumper year so far for Chinese e-commerce firm Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE:BABA). Alibaba stock has made its way more than 60% higher over the course of the year and investors who have stuck with the “Amazon of China” since 2016 have seen returns of more than 120%. Alibaba stock has seen its fair share of peaks and troughs over the past year as investors weigh the risks of investing in a Chinese tech firm against the potential growth the company is offering.
Why the heck is Dropbox Inc (NASDAQ:DBX) soaring so much? DBX stock is up 40% in five trading days and while that type of rally isn’t incomprehensible when there’s a catalyst, there’s seemingly no catalyst here. Chinese stocks are all the rage, so it makes sense why Sogou Inc (NYSE:SOGO), iQiyi, Inc (NASDAQ:IQ) and HUYA Inc – ADR (NYSE:HUYA) are going through the roof.
Bungie realized that they couldn’t make the normal Nightfall inaccessible to non-DLC-buying players, so the one you can complete for the milestone is recommended power 270. The Nightfall is quite easy if you’re just trying to run a normal one for the milestone or to farm catalysts. Any random heroic strike with glass or blackout as the modifier is at least twice as hard as the Nightfall at this point, and yet I can matchmake into that playlist, but not this one.
Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) just keeps getting more valuable, because Facebook stock is a diverse stock in and of itself. That won’t shield it from another internet bubble burst, but buying a company with physical, real world assets might. New media companies are now as vulnerable as they were the last time the internet bubble burst.
Microsoft (MSFT) acquired Minneapolis-based startup, Flipgrid for an undisclosed amount in a bid to up the ante in edtech industry.
The storm around a lack of cross-play on PS4 has not abated in the wake of the news out of E3 that not only can you not play with Xbox or Switch players if you have a PS4-linked Fortnite account, but that you cannot use that account at all on either of those platforms. Sony has issued a statement that somehow manages to boast about its sales numbers while dodging the account-locking part of the problem entirely.
Companies are relatively abstract entities, created by an amalgam of diverse individuals, and largely dedicated to making money along the lines of shareholder value. The closest thing to corporate ethics is corporate social responsibility, which in too many cases has proved to be little more than a propaganda tool to justify a few worthy words in an annual report. In the absence of corporate ethics employees are increasingly speaking out against their company when they feel it has crossed the line: Google staff have spoken out against the Department of Defense’s Maven Project, a lucrative image recognition contract that many other technology companies have chosen to keep quiet about.
Google announced on June 18 that it will be investing $550 million in JD.com. The Chinese retailer's supply chain and logistics expertise and Google's technology strength will be combined as the two firms work on e-commerce projects in Europe, Southeast Asia and the United States. JD.com will also join Google Shopping and bring a selection of their high-quality products to different parts of the world, according to the statement released by Google. The firm is also looking to launch in the U.S., Amazon's home turf, later this year.
The increasing lack of developer appeal for Oracle’s offerings, especially when the company is trying to transform itself into a cloud company, is a cause for concern. Of late, tech players are consciously structuring their offerings for the developer community and open-source software. In 2017, Microsoft (MSFT) bought Deis, which uses Kubernetes to attract the developer community, which has a preference for Kubernetes.
After a short bit of downtime, the new v4.4 patch update for Fortnite is here, and though it seems like a short one, there are a few major changes that are going to really alter the game, it seems. Fortnite players are scrambling this morning trying to figure out if Stink Bombs are good or not.
In a strongly worded statement, Tom Donohue, US Chamber of Commerce president, appealed to the administration to end the practice. The Chamber, one of the largest business lobby groups in Washington, also urged the government to end its threat to deport young “Dreamers” who came to the US as children.
Airbnb Inc. became one of the most high-profile technology companies to publicly condemn the Trump administration’s policy of separating children from parents accused of illegally crossing the U.S. border. In a joint statement, founders Brian Chesky, Nathan Blecharczyk and Joe Gebbia described immigration officials’ practices as “heartless, cruel, immoral” and counter to American values. Over the weekend, several lawmakers, human rights organizations and celebrities slammed the White House for separating migrant families with children at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Some people became angry about Microsoft's cloud collaboration with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Microsoft said that an employee did it and that it was a mistake. The company said it urges Congress to make law that stops the government from separating immigrant children from their parents.
The word on Wall Street - from the mouths of several top analysts - is that the market still has some serious room to run. And quality stock picks should be much better rewarded going forward than they have on average through the first half of 2018. For instance, Tony Dwyer, chief market strategist at Canaccord Genuity, believes earnings will rise to record levels by the end of the year. He has upped his 2018 operating-earnings forecast for the Standard & Poor's 500-stock forecast to $160 per share, from $155 previously. "Throughout this cycle, each intermediate-term correction feels like the fundamental and tactical backdrop is at risk, only to ultimately realize that positive influences that drive our core thesis still exist," he wrote in a recent report. We turned to TipRanks' revamped Stock Screener to see which stocks top analysts are betting on right now. These stock picks tend to feature big growth potential over the coming months. We specifically filtered for stocks with a "Strong Buy" consensus rating from the best-performing analysts.

Earlier in the series, we discussed Oracle’s (ORCL) position in the IaaS (infrastructure-as-a-service) and PaaS (platform-as-a-service) spaces and compared its market share, revenue, and growth rate to those of its peers. Oracle’s PaaS and IaaS cloud offerings revenue, despite being at a smaller base of ~$416 million, has grown less than the revenues of top players such as Amazon (AMZN), Microsoft (MSFT), and Google (GOOG). While Google has reported growth of 120%, Microsoft’s cloud offerings have grown 98% on a YoY (year-over-year) basis.
A whole range of industries are on the cusp of introducing blockchain, and just about every enterprise will be using it in the years to come, said Microsoft Azure's chief tech officer.
