Charlie loves to be pet and snuggled and is very playful.

@theMarket: Week of Surprises Keeps Investors Hopping
By Bill Schmick,
04:49PM / Friday, July 09, 2021
There were plenty of reasons why the stock market was a bit jumpy this week. Let's go through them.   Two weeks ago, I wrote that I was worried "that we could suddenly see a spike in new Delta variant cases that impacts economic growth. Remember that less than half of all Americans are fully vaccinated. President Biden, his chief medical advisor Anthony Fauci, and the Fed are all sounding warnings over this risk, yet the markets are ignoring it."   Investors finally caught on this week and began to realize the risk presented by the Delta variant and its impact on the re-opening of the U.S. economy. It is impossible, in my opinion, to maintain the economic pace of

The Retired Investor: China's Red Hand of Regulation
By Bill Schmick,
04:21PM / Thursday, July 08, 2021
Over the past several decades, investors, investing in China, have gotten used to the dichotomy of China's Communist-run, centralized government and its free-for-all stock market. That situation appears to be ending.   The latest (and most controversial) sign of China's increased interest in regulating and extending control of its largest companies came over the weekend. Fresh off the heels of a global $4.4 billion initial public offering, Didi, China's ride-hailing giant, was ordered to cease accepting new users, and to close down its app by China's internet regulators.   By midweek, the newly, U.S.-listed share price of Didi fell by well over 20 percent. But Didi

02:36AM / Wednesday, July 07, 2021
 
Help wanted signs have been ubiquitous around the county for both small and large food service concerns.  PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Businesses throughout the county have felt different degrees of pressure over the past year as the novel coronavirus continued to tighten its grip.
