@theMarket: FOMO Fuels the Markets
By Bill Schmick,
05:43PM / Friday, June 09, 2017
The fear of missing out (or FOMO) has supported the stock market averages this week. Although it appeared that the indexes simply marked time, appearances can be deceiving.    We made new record highs again this week as investors piled into stocks on any sign of weakness.

Price usually

By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
02:44PM / Friday, June 09, 2017
With Gal Gadot's depiction of the title character in director Patty Jenkins' "Wonder Woman," we at long last have a superhero who is, well, really super.
