    We’re Sexual Misconduct Law Experts. The Senate’s Brett Kavanaugh Investigation Is a Hot Mess

    The Senate Judiciary Committee’s position that the committee itself should vet Christine Blasey Ford’s report of past sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is a straight-up boondoggle. Ford’s insistence on a thorough fact-finding process by an impartial body is spot-on. In fact, the committee’s proposed investigative process demonstrates with jaw-dropping clarity that it does not genuinely believe that preventing sexual misconduct is a real goal worth fighting for.

    2 Marijuana Stocks to Buy and Hold Forever

    Despite its explosive gains over the past few weeks, the marijuana industry, in many ways, is still in its infancy. Medical and recreational cannabis sales are forecast to climb to a monstrous $146.4 billion by the end of 2025, according to Grand View Research. First off, the top Canadian pot stocks listed on major U.S. exchanges -- Canopy Growth Corporation (NYSE: CGC), Cronos Group (NASDAQ: CRON), and Tilray (NASDAQ: TLRY) -- all sport valuations that seem to suggest that much of this projected upside is already baked in at this point.

    Why Warren Buffett Keeps Buying Apple and Bank Stocks

    Warren Buffett and his right-hand Charlie Munger seem sweet on the world's largest company, Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL). Berkshire also sold some of its position in Phillips 66, Charter Communications, United Airlines, American Airlines, and Wells Fargo. Some of these sales might indicate the investor is moving away from the companies, but others are simply a part of Buffett's plans to keep his ownership below 10% to avoid certain regulatory hurdles.

    Morgan Stanley Says Intel 'Oversold' Its Technology, Raises AMD Price Target 150%

    Morgan Stanley's Joseph Moore maintained an Underweight rating on AMD with a price target lifted from $11 to $28. Intel argued over the past few years that its process leadership would translate into a sustainable performance advantage across multiple markets, Moore said in a Tuesday note. Intel's ongoing delays in its 10 nm processors are now looking more disruptive for the company than previously assumed, as it is impacting existing roadmaps, Moore said.

    Microsoft Increases Its Dividend -- What You Need to Know

    As expected, software giant Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) announced a dividend increase this week. While Microsoft's fairly low dividend yield means the stock might often get overlooked as a dividend stock, another meaningful annual dividend increase in the books makes the stock a bit more enticing as an investment for generating income. In line with the company's practice of announcing a dividend increase on the third Tuesday of every September, management declared the 9.5% dividend hike after market close on Tuesday, Sept. 18.

    World stocks rise as trade relief bounce continues

    A bounce in world stocks in relief that the fresh U.S. and Chinese tariffs on reciprocal imports were less harsh than feared continued on Thursday, although investors remained wary about the next steps in the US-Sino trade war. An MSCI index tracking shares in 47 countries rose 0.2 percent, supported by gains in Europe and Asia, but Chinese equities dipped after a rally on bets of government stimulus to limit the economic damage of new trade barriers. Markets were also watching a European Union summit where Prime Minister Theresa May appealed to fellow EU leaders on Wednesday to drop Brexit demands that she said could rip Britain apart.

    SunPower Stock Gains Momentum as Analysts Weigh In: What You Need to Know

    SunPower (NASDAQ: SPWR) really wants you to know about that, and yesterday told Reuters -- a day before the official announcement was made -- that its appeal to the U.S. Trade Representative to be exempted from 30% tariffs on imported solar panels has been granted. Partly because SunPower's solar cells and modules are made in Mexico and the Philippines (rather than China, the focus of President Trump's trade war), and partly because they're "highly differentiated IBC cells and modules" rather than "cheap, commoditized imports" (and thus less likely to undercut U.S.-made solar panels on price), SunPower solar products will be permitted to sidestep tariffs that began this year, and will continue to add cost to competitors' products through at least 2021. Hearing this, investors rushed to bid up SunPower stock 15% yesterday, and the buying is continuing today as Wall Street keys into the news -- and begins rewarding SunPower with upgrades and target-price hikes.

    In a mere 28 days, on Oct. 17, recreational weed will go on sale in licensed dispensaries, opening the door to what should be billions of dollars in added annual sales, atop what the industry is already generating from medical pot sales and via exports to foreign countries that've legalized medical cannabis. For instance, no pot stock has done better (or even come close, for that matter) than Tilray (NASDAQ: TLRY) since its initial public offering on July 19. After pricing its shares at $17, Tilray hit $300 a share in intraday trading on Wednesday, Sept. 19.

According to Business Insider, Robinhood notified its users Wednesday morning that it suspended new purchases of shares in Aurora Cannabis, a Canadian marijuana producer listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. Aurora shares are also available to trade in the U.S. on the over-the-counter market under the ticker ACBFF.
