Wall Street pros have dived headlong into dark pools, exclusive private exchanges where they can trade stocks with each other in secret. Now comes an entrepreneur with a new twist: a dark pool for the masses, especially young investors. The small dark pool promises youthful fun and tries to make trading less intimidating for college students. Experts, however, are advising caution because of the risks and potential for conflicts of interest.
Warren Buffet isn’t the only one thinking ‘Coke is it!’ Several U.S. colleges and universities benefited over the past several decades from an investment in Coca-Cola, received as gifts decades ago from Lettie Pate Evans and the Evans Foundation. The dividends paid from the Foundation’s holdings have supported many scholarships and other college operations.
Whole Foods Market was long the darling of the ecologically sensitive investors in that they tapped into a solid market that had a loyal and growing client base and high profit margins. As many mass retailers began to move into the grocery sector and also the organic/ecologically advantaged products market, they began to first thwart the growth of Whole Foods Market, but now there are also concerns of reducing sales and profits.
So, how does a guy who stands out in Beverly Hills like Harry Potter in a sea of Kardashians, become head of digital for a talent management company, whose clients include U2 and Amy Schumer, and a partner at a venture capital company founded by Ashton Kutcher and Madonna’s manager?

Six straight quarters of declining same-store sales have forced Whole Foods Market, which has about 440 U.S. stores, to close stores and rein in costs. It has been pushing digital coupons and promotions while working to lower costs.
The narrow victory on April 16, 2017’s referendum vote for expanding the powers for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Turkey will not likely fix the ailing economy or reduce terrorism. Erdogan might take the victory as a mandate to reject European values and become increasingly inward-looking.
Manufacturing of dentures and dental implants has become more automated and is increasingly done in low-wage locations. A combination of the use of digital technology, consolidation among dentists, and lower costs overseas has contributed to a shift in production of dental fixtures. U.S. manufacturers that have remained competitive have shed jobs by investing in automation.
In eight months, cyber-security startup Tanium Inc. has lost at least nine senior executives. This executive exodus is occurring despite the company’s ongoing success and growth. The CEO’s behavior may be the explanation.

China is the world's largest auto market, and most cars are sold under a foreign brand name. This is a result of China's policy of requiring foreign car makers to work with a joint venture partner, and in the process transfer some technology and manufacturing expertise. As the Chinese government considers dropping this restriction, it could hurt local manufacturers who have come to depend on the profit streams from foreign-branded vehicles.
