The Olayan Group announced that global property and casualty insurance firm Chubb has signed a lease for 240,000 square feet of office space at the newly revitalized 550 Madison Avenue. The insurance is the the first tenant of the iconic, Philip Johnson designed office tower that has been transformed by Olayan Group to a world-class multi-tenant new office space.  The building is now the city’s healthiest place to work, the only building in New York targeting both LEED Platinum and WELL Gold certifications. The Chubb lease represents more than 31% of the building’s rentable office space. 550 MADISON “550 Madison is unlike any building in New York, combining the single healthiest office environment in the city with globally recognized landmark architecture,” said Erik Horvat, Managing Director, Head of Real Estate for Olayan America. “We pride ourselves on creating world-class spaces that inspire leadership and creativity, and we are proud to welcome Chubb –a company that shares those values–as our anchor tenant.” Earlier this year, the building’s newly renovated lobby, redesigned by Gensler, was unveiled with a new art installation from world-renowned artist Alicja Kwade, entitled Solid Sky. The work is a 24 ton Azul do Macaubas sphere hanging by ten polished stainless steel chains just 12 feet above the floor, and highlights the impressive height and clear verticality of the main hall, honoring Johnson’s original postmodern vision. 550 Madison has also partnered with luxury publisher Assouline to curate a library for the landmark office tower as an exclusive amenity for tenants on the club level, which is being designed by Rockwell Group. The partnership is the first of its kind for the publisher, the first office amenity to be envisioned by Assouline. Rendering of renovated property. Since its opening in 1984, 550 Madision has housed just two tenants – AT&T and Sony. The Olayan Group acquired the tower in 2016 and the building became New York City’s youngest landmark in 2018. It will open in 2022 as a multi-tenant building for the first time. The 800,000 s/f tower features 14-foot high ceilings; large, column-free floor plates; north, south, east, and west-facing views of New York City; river to river sightlines; and offices overlooking Central Park. The ownership and development team is creating a one-of-a-kind amenity package which all tenants and visitors can access – this will include food and beverage concepts, lounges, shared conferencing and work spaces, as well as distinctive fitness and wellness offerings. Olayan is working with development partner RXR Realty on the revitalization of 550 Madison. Both firms have deep experience preserving and modernizing historic and landmark buildings in the US and internationally, includingthe iconic Helmsley Building, 75 Rockefeller Plaza, and the Starrett-Lehigh Building in New York City. AECOM Tishman is the Construction Manager for the revitalization of 550 Madison. CBRE is the exclusive leasing agent for the building.  Rendering of the showcase retail space now on the market at 550 Madison.

Mountain Peaks and Tumbleweeds: Real Estate in Frontierland, USA

Editor’s note: Even in an industry where jobs are determined by the disparate geography and composition of their individual communities, there are realms that transcend the real estate firmament, where markets, environments or policy make the experience of buying and selling homes something else entirely.

Editor’s note: Even in an industry where jobs are determined by the disparate geography and composition of their individual communities, there are realms that transcend the real estate firmament, where markets, environments or policy make the experience of buying and selling homes something else entirely. People who embark on careers in these spaces take on a different set of challenges than the vast majority of those in the industry. In RISMedia’s “Real Estate On The Edge” series, we take a look at some of these people and the spaces they work in, highlighting some of the most interesting places and environments to practice real estate. In the far southwest corner of Texas lies Zapata County. Nestled against the U.S./Mexico border, the county—around 1,000 square miles of rocky desert, with a population of around 15,000—is not home to any incorporated municipalities or border crossings. About a third of the population lives in the relatively bustling county seat of Zapata, which offers all the small-town comfort that a few chain restaurants, mom-and-pop bakeries, laundromats and a newly built public playground can provide. A scrubby nine-hole golf course at the edge of town holds regular tournaments and fundraisers, and the local high school football field can accommodate more than half the town’s population for football and other sporting events. The nearest city of any measurable size is Laredo, about an hour’s drive to the north through mostly empty desert, and the nearest metro, San Antonio, lies almost four hours away by car. Liz Mendoza is the broker/owner of Cornerstone Real Estate. She has lived in Zapata her entire life. Most of her family works in education, she says, but since 1996, her passion has been real estate—something that started as a college job but evolved into much more than that as she took over the county’s only real estate brokerage. “I’m the little one from this little, small city but I’m a contender,” she promises. Most homes in Zapata County go for around $100,000, though you can get a fixer-upper for half that. Like Mendoza, many of her clients have deep roots in the small desert community, going back multiple generations. People will inherit land or a home and may want to sell, while others save enough money to upgrade after living in one of the many prefabricated structures or trailers that essentially serve as starter homes. About 15% of Zapata residents work in the oil industry, chasing jobs that have steadily moved out of the area according to Mendoza. In 1954, a dam meant to mitigate flooding issues in the Rio Grande completely destroyed the original settlement, with many property owners forced to flee on short notice, abandoning family homesteads. But many of them chose to remain in the area despite its remote location and challenges. Mendoza describes this attitude in her beloved community as not one of defiance, but persistence. People in Zapata are not staying in spite of the area’s tough history, but because of it, relishing the community and the lifestyle that their ancestors cultivated. “They keep lands in their families for generations,” she says. About 2,000 miles to the north, on the far side of the country, is another place that has historically drawn those who want to embrace a self-sustaining, rugged lifestyle far from the city rat-race. With a population of just over a million people spread out over 150,000 square miles of deeply forested, mountain terrain, Montana is one of the least densely populated states behind only Wyoming and Alaska. Will Friedner is not a native Montanan, he admits. He founded his brokerage, Montana Life Realty, about 15 years ago with his wife after growing up in Minnesota. “The most fulfilling thing is just showing people the state and watching them react,” he says. “It’s still one of the few places left in the lower 48 that is still so wild.” Though it has little else in common superficially with the shale-scattered clay of South Texas, people who choose to live in rural Montana share something very important with the folks of Zapata: pride. Friedner says that people in his state are looking for a lifestyle that is deeply personal and unique, centered on the state’s ability to provide space, and a rugged communion with nature. “I like to joke that you can watch your dog run away for three days, because there’s nothing there,” he says. Further north—much further north, in fact—is a place that most people understand is a frontier. Connie Yoshimura is a broker at Alaska Realty in Anchorage, through Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. She took a road trip up through Canada 40 years ago, she says, and never looked back. Though there is truth to what outsiders imagine when they think of her state—long winters, wildlife, empty space and self-reliance—Alaska is also a place of great diversity, she says, with bustling cultural centers and people living all sorts of lifestyles. “We’re actually a combination of a frontier state and a pretty sophisticated urban environment,” Yoshimura says. Those who are seeking to move there, or move within the state, mostly know what they are doing, she says, and also have in common a tremendous appreciation of what Alaska can offer them and their families. “I personally enjoy working with buyers and sellers and learning what brings them to this particular point in time,” she adds. “Some people come for great adventure.” What these frontier agents all have in common, though, is a deeply personal reason for doing what they do, where they do it—a connection with the people, with the landscape or with the history of these communities. Whether they grew up there or are transplants themselves, each has remained out on the edge, spending decades getting to know all the unique challenges and extraordinary experiences of these places—which in the end, is what the job is all about. What It’s Like Housing is especially unique in Zapata, according to Mendoza, because no developer has ever built speculatively there—every house is either a prefab or a custom design commissioned (or constructed) by the property owner. Because of this, and because she has been essentially the only real estate agent in the county for close to two decades, Mendoza says she has sold some’s homes three or four times. “I know the history of it, and I can tell them that. Some may or may not believe it, but I’ll tell them, ‘Oh I remember when I sold it the first time, and this is what it looked like,'” she laughs. “Limited inventory, you know, so we trade the same house over and over.” One of Mendoza’s properties outside the town of Zapata—a three-bedroom, two-bath ranch listed at $105,000—is described as “secluded…yet property is not isolated.” Among the listing photos is one of a rabbit crouched beside a cactus in the backyard (the property is great for hunting, the listing says). Another listing consists of two prefab structures (one that was formerly used as a beauty shop) connected by a sheet-metal overhang that forms a patio, or carport depending on preference. The lot includes shaded animal pens as well as a lake view, according to the listing. Mendoza says it took a while for the larger REALTOR® organization in Laredo—a relative metropolis with a population of about 100,000—to take her seriously, but she has since proved herself as a scrappy and passionate member of the community, being elected to the Board of Directors in Laredo last year. “There’s other big-time brokers that trade properties left and right, and at first I was kind of being looked down ,” she says. “They’ve learned to respect me, and now they appreciate Zapata because I tell them the good .” At the other extreme in Zapata is the relocation industry. U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agents are consistently transferred in and out, and oil industry workers—who make up about 15% of Zapata County jobs according to census data—also arrive regularly, many from thousands of miles away and hailing from very different geographic and demographic areas. “We deal a lot with relocation,” she says. “Some people are used to having Walmart a block away. We don’t have that; it’s 45 minutes to the first Walmart. So we kind of explain that to people.” While these kinds of situations—communicating the unique challenges of the area to outsiders—make up a good portion of Mendoza’s business in Zapata, out-of-staters have been Friedner’s bread and butter, at least for the last two years or so. Montana metros were the third-fastest growing in the nation as far as price appreciation this past spring and summer, according to data collected by the National Association of REALTORS®, as many people fled coastal markets looking for space and affordability during the pandemic. With all the transplants, it got to the point where late last summer Friedner filmed a video titled “Living in Montana: Things They Don’t Tell You,” which was meant to address issues most outsiders are not prepared for. That video went viral, garnering almost 2.5 million views as of press time. “Ironically enough, the video that goes viral is the one that’s about why you shouldn’t move to Montana,” he deadpans. He was inspired to make that video, he explains, after driving a couple from Los Angeles hours into the wilderness to see a home they had viewed online, and felt was a sure home-run. “They just had no idea what they were getting into,” he says. “By the time we got to it, their eyes were huge and…obviously weren’t going to live out there once they saw it in person.” Frieder says he now strongly recommends that any out-of-state buyers take a drive through the state before he sends them any specific listing, just so they can get an idea of just how vast and isolated it is—have a chance to spot a bear on the side of the road or experience a few hundred miles of cell-service blackout. If they are still interested after that, he says they can start discussing specific properties or issues, like roads that are only ploughed if you plough them yourself, grizzly bears and wolves encroaching on properties (only an issue in certain parts of the state) and what “off-grid” really means as far as your daily, monthly and yearly investment of time and money. “Some people are scared off a little bit, some people just think it sounds even better,” Friedner laughs. This is in stark contrast to Alaska where Yoshimura says people almost always have a good idea of what to expect if they are planning on moving to the state. “Everybody that’s here enjoys the great outdoors,” she says. Claire James is Alaska Realty’s business development director working with Yoshimura at Berkshire Hathaway. She herself is an avid backpacker and outdoor enthusiast who regularly embarks on weeklong hikes through the Alaskan wilderness. But she says a lot of folks coming up the state end up in relatively standard living arrangements in the cities or suburbs. “Often will say they’re looking for a cabin in the woods,” she says. “But in reality, we live in a major city. We do not live in igloos in Alaska. Once they’re here, they realize they want to live where the work and where the homes are, and maybe in the future they can purchase that second cabin.” That isn’t to say there aren’t plenty of unique aspects to the market. A lot of people who purchase lake homes need to know whether they are able to land or dock small airplanes there, according to Yoshimura, as air travel is extremely common in a state where roads simply do not reach every town or community. Wildlife is also endemic to all parts of the state—not just out in the boonies. “I was out walking my dog last night and I was greeted by a huge bull moose,” James says. People who have lived there a while are not necessarily surprised or in awe of these types of encounters—both black and brown bears, bald eagle and wolves—but instead approach the situation from a practical standpoint. “A lot of times you just think, ‘Okay should I run?'” James laughs. Another unique issue is for people who live in “fly-to” locations outside of the major cities and have to account for the fact that all goods and services have to arrive by plane. The trade-off is of course, access to some of the best fishing, hiking and incredible landscapes in the world. “Those towns are just beautiful,” James says. Generally, Yoshimura says people in Alaska are looking for two things: space and a view. Lake homes are very popular, and anything with mountain or water views will be in high demand. Lake access or really spectacular views can easily drive the price of a property up by six figures, she says. These things are also highly sought after in Montana, according to Friedner, but the vast surge of interest from outsiders has also resulted in a lot of push-back from the folks who have lived there for generations. In the “Living In Montana” viral video, Friedner said that some locals have begun referring to Bozeman—the state’s fourth-largest metro with a population of just over 50,000—as “Boze Angeles” due to the influx of California migrants. But though restaurants might be busier and roads might occasionally get clogged (relatively speaking) around resort areas, Frieder says Montana has plenty of room for newcomers. “As much as the locals don’t want to hear that,” he says, “you can drive ten minutes out of town and you’re in the middle of nowhere. I don’t want to see Montana turn into Southern California, but it’s going to be long after I’m gone before it ever gets to that point.” Why We’re Here In Zapata, welcoming strangers has never been an issue, according to Mendoza—something that can be traced through the area’s history of ranchers and frontiersmen who stuck together through hard times. That includes decades of 19th century outlaws feuding across the almost stateless land, and political upheaval during the short-lived Republic of the Rio Grande uprising in 1840, with the county named after slain revolutionary general Antonio Zapata. But despite its lineage of conflict, Mexican and White Anglo-Europeans in Zapata have almost always gotten along, according to the Texas Historical Society, even as nearby regions saw significant ethnic and racial violence through much of the late 19th and 20th centuries. Mendoza says this spirit of peace and harmony persists today, with the majority-Hispanic population happy to mingle with relocated workers, seasonal vacationers at nearby Falcon Lake and any new neighbors regardless of race or origin. “We’ve learned to mesh well with everyone,” she says. “People here are raised different—we’re raised to respect. Everybody here—in Spanish we say, tio and tia. So everywhere I go, people are my tio and tia, people I don’t even know. That’s the respect we have for people because we were brought up with that kind of morals.” Living in a place where everyone refers to you as an uncle or aunt is part of what has kept Mendoza in Zapata, she says, and part of what makes her work more than a job—makes it a service to every person who wants to share the unique, enduring community she belongs to. “These are people that I live with, these are people that I’m going to see at the store tomorrow,” she says. “I need to make sure that I did a good job for them because I’m going to bump into them every day, and I want to make sure they’re happy with the services that I could provide. So I take a lot of pride in that.” In Montana, there is a very different kind of priority. Many people come to the state and stay there because they would rather not see their neighbors every day, according to Friedner. “Everybody wants to go be a cowboy in Montana,” he said. The peace and opportunity that comes from that amount of space has a growing appeal, he says, with a lot of out-of-state folks explicitly asking for homes that are “off the grid” or properties with no legal restrictions. In his video, Friedner talked about housing covenants, which dictate the kind of activities or uses allowed on a particular lot. A lot of people come to him asking for properties that have no covenants, and because most of rural Montana land is also unzoned, they imagine they can do essentially whatever they want with that kind of property. Though this is often attainable, Friedner warned that there are also drawbacks. A neighbor can park dozens of junk cars haphazardly in their front yard, open a store or start raising livestock next door and there is little recourse for a property owner who is bothered by these things. Because of this need for space, sometimes even acres and acres of distance isn’t enough, Friedner says, as people value their self-reliance, history and privacy in a way that is hard to describe to outsiders. Likewise in Alaska, where James and Yoshimura say that there is an inherent respect earned simply by calling the state home. “Alaskans are really proud to live here,” she says. “There’s just no more beautiful place than Alaska,” Yoshimura affirms. Diversity is more than environment and landscape, she adds. Indigenous people speak almost 150 different languages in local schools, and Anchorage and Juneau boast growing hispanic communities, she says. And though the 18% of the population that identifies as indigenous has faced violence and continues to battle discrimination, several young people have also been able to move into the cities, according to Yoshimura, to attend colleges or elevate employment opportunities. Every individual and family—immigrant or native— bring tremendous and unique individual histories to the state, Yoshimura says, traceable across the vast Alaskan landscape and beyond. And that is the real appeal to being in this part of the world, especially as a real estate agent, she adds. Every place where people live has written its own story, stories that are often as wild and ancient as the rolling tundras, sparkling fjords and soaring mountains that initially draw people to explore Alaska. It is this deeper landscape of community and history that someone like Yoshimura, someone like Friedner, someone like Mendoza gets to explore every day, and the reason why they all have spent decades as real estate agents in the communities that they know—and love—more than anyone.

3 Great Blue-Chip Stocks to Buy at Discounts in October and Hold

Here are three blue-chip stocks from totally different industries investors might want to consider buying at discounts in October to anchor their portfolios for years to come... Stocks tumbled to start the final week of the third quarter and continued to fall Thursday in what’s been an up and down period. Wall Street’s attention remains on the Fed and what’s next for the U.S. economy as supply chain setbacks and the delta variant disrupt what was a booming comeback.Economists and big Wall Street banks have lowered their 2021 GDP forecasts, citing supply chain logjams, rising prices, and the delta variant’s impact on sectors such as travel and leisure. These impacts are real, but the longer-term bullish case remains. For instance, August retail sales were surprisingly solid, highlighting resilience heading into the holidays.The overall S&P 500 earnings and margin outlook is still strong. Plus, even when the Fed raises rates, we could still be years away from a return to pre-financial crisis levels. It’s worth stressing that the 10-year U.S. Treasury yield has rarely and barely moved above 3% in the last decade and with 2% or higher inflation, Wall Street will likely continue chasing returns in equities (also read: Previewing the Q3 Earnings Season).The S&P 500 has climbed 16% in 2021 and there could certainly be more selling on the horizon, even though the benchmark index is currently down around 5% from its early September records. That might sound scary, but selling is a part of well-functioning markets (see nearby chart).Timing the market is difficult and long-term investors are often best served buying strong stocks whenever there’s a pullback, even if there is more selling or volatility ahead. Given this backdrop, here are three blue-chip stocks from totally different industries investors might want to consider buying at discounts in October to anchor their portfolios for years to come…Image Source: Zacks Investment ResearchAdobe ADBEAdobe created the PDF and went public in the mid-1980s. These days it’s a cloud software powerhouse, with a portfolio full of the most important creative and design software on the market. The firm’s subscription-based offerings include Photoshop, InDesign, Premiere, and newer software geared to the digital media age.ADBE’s subscription-based model helps create stable growth and its creative cloud suite is invaluable to countless businesses, schools, and creatives. The company also boosted its business-focused portfolio to include e-signature, documents, marketing, and more. Adobe’s diversified and relatively unique solutions provide a sturdy moat in a crowded and sometimes redundant SaaS space.Adobe’s FY20 revenue climbed 15% and it topped our Q3 estimates on Sept. 21, with sales and adjusted earnings both up around 22%. Zacks estimates call for its revenue to surge 22.5% this year and jump another 15% higher to $18.2 billion in FY22 and extend its streak of around 15% or stronger top-line growth to eight years running. Meanwhile, its adjusted earnings are expected to climb 23% and 14%, respectively.ADBE outclimbed Microsoft MSFT and Apple AAPL over the last five years, up 430%. The stock has cooled off in the last year to lag well behind the benchmark and recent profiting-taking around earnings—and the larger downturn—sets up an enticing buying opportunity. Adobe is down 15% from its records and its quick drop pushed it from overbought RSI levels (70 or higher) in early September to oversold (30 or under) at 25.Adobe lands a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) right now and Wall Street is extremely high on the stock, with 18 of the 19 brokerage recommendations Zacks has resting at “Strong Buys.” The company also continues to repurchase its stock and its subscription software offerings aren’t going out of style anytime soon.Caterpillar CATAlong with big tech, diversification and dividends are key aspects to any portfolio. Caterpillar fits the bill and it’s a straightforward way to play economic growth, including continued infrastructure spending. CAT and its iconic yellow machines are synonymous with every corner of construction. The company is also plugged into various resource industries through mining equipment and more, as well the energy and transportation sectors.Along with the huge equipment the average person might see on a daily basis, Caterpillar produces everything from marine diesel engines to gas generators. The Illinois-based firm in recent years has also introduced a services segment to help smooth the sometimes-bumpy road caused by economic boom and bust cycles.CAT is also rolling out IoT-connected machines that enable customers to know when repairs and spare parts are needed for various equipment that can cost millions of dollars. And Caterpillar’s executive team is prepared to embark on the massive energy transition in the U.S. and elsewhere.CAT began to break out of a several-year slump after the market hit its coronavirus lows with shares now up 60% in the past two years to easily outpace its industry. Luckily, it has pulled back after it got overheated following a long, post-election run. The stock now trades 20% below its May records and hovers close to oversold RSI levels at 36.CAT is trading at a 30% discount to its own year-long median at 17.2X forward earnings, which marks value vs. its industry. Caterpillar is also a dividend aristocrat and its 2.30% yield tops the 30-year Treasury’s roughly 2.1% and its industry’s 1% average.Caterpillar currently lands a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold), alongside “B” grades for Value and Growth in our Style Scores system and it returns value to shareholders through buybacks.Zacks estimates call for CAT’s adjusted FY21 earnings to skyrocketed 54% on 22% higher revenue. The industrial power is then projected to follow up this strong showing with another 19% earnings growth and 12% strong sales that would see it pull in around $57 billion. The company is set to report its Q3 financial results on Oct. 28.Walmart WMTWalmart posted a banner year in 2020 (FY21), with sales up 7% and comps 9% higher. The retail giant’s e-commerce revenue skyrocketed 80%, driven by beefed-up delivery and pick-up options. WMT also last year launched its subscription service dubbed Walmart+ to compete directly against Amazon AMZN Prime. The service costs $98 a year and offers unlimited free deliveries, discounts on fuel, access to new-age in-store checkout offerings, and more.On top of that, etail titan has expanded its customer base through diversification, including teaming up with secondhand e-commerce clothing firm ThredUp, partnering with Shopify SHOP to bring more small businesses to its own third-party marketplace, and more.Walmart’s digital advertising business is also on track to be a multi-billion-dollar-a-year segment. WMT is set to improve its financial services offerings and eventually roll out telehealth services around the country to complement its in-person Walmart Health centers.Despite coming up against its best performance in years, Zacks estimates call for WMT’s revenue to climb another 1% this year and 2.2% higher next year to reach $578 billion. Plus, its adjusted earnings are projected to jump 16% and 5%, respectively.Investors should also note that analysts have raised their EPS estimates for the stock recently and it’s crushed our bottom-line estimates in the past two periods. This positivity helps Walmart land a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) right now, alongside its overall “A” VGM grade.The firm’s Retail – Supermarkets space is in the top 17% of over 250 Zacks industries and Wall Street analyst are largely high on the stock. And its 1.59% dividend yield tops the recently-rising 10-year U.S. Treasury.Like its peers on the list, Walmart stock has fallen recently, down over 6% in the past month and nearly 10% from its records. The recent selling sent it into oversold RSI levels at 26. Therefore, now could be a solid entry point for the stock that’s climbed 100% in the past five years to nearly double its industry.

Victor Davis Hanson: A Cabinency Of Dunces

Victor Davis Hanson: A Cabinency Of Dunces Authored by Victor Davis Hanson, As the nation sinks inexplicably into self-created crisis after crisis, debate rages whether President Joe Biden is incompetent, mean-spirited, or an ideologue who feels the country's mess is his success... A second national discussion revolves around who actually is overseeing the current national catastrophe, given Biden's frequent bewilderment and cognitive challenges. But one area of agreement is the sheer craziness of Biden's cabinet appointments, who have translated his incoherent ideology into catastrophic governance. Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas has essentially nullified federal immigration law. Over 2 million foreign nationals have illegally crossed the southern border without audit -- and without COVID vaccinations and tests during a pandemic. Mayorkas either cannot or will not follow federal law. But he did create a new Disinformation Governance Board. To head his new Orwellian Ministry of Truth, he appointed Nina Jankowicz -- an arch disinformationist who helped peddle the Russian collusion, Steele dossier, and Alfa Bank hoaxes. While Jankowicz's adolescent videos and past tweets finally forced her resignation, Mayorkas promises his board will carry on. In the days before the recent Virginia election, grassroots parent groups challenged critical race theory taught in the schools. In reaction and under prompts from teachers' unions, Attorney General Merrick Garland directed both the FBI and the Justice Department to establish a special task force apparently to "investigate threats" from parents against school board members. The FBI recently has been knee-deep in political controversies. It illegally doctored a FISA application to entrap an American citizen. Its former directors, under oath before Congress, either claimed faulty memory or admitted lying to federal investigators. The last thing a scandal-plagued FBI needed was to go undercover at school board meetings to investigate parents worried over their children's education. We are in a fuel price spiral that is destroying the middle class. Yet when Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm was asked about plans to lower gas prices, she laughed off the idea as "hilarious." Later Granholm preposterously claimed, "It is not the administration policies that have affected supply and demand." Apparently haranguing those who finance fossil fuel production, canceling the Keystone Pipeline, suspending new federal oil and gas leases, and stopping production in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge all had nothing to do with high fuel prices. Currently, supply chain disruptions are paralyzing the U.S. economy. The huge Port of Los Angeles has been a mess for over a year. Since last fall dozens of cargo ships have been backed up to the horizon. Thousands of trucks are bottlenecked at the port. During the mess, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was not at work. Instead at the height of the crisis, he took a two-month paternity leave to help out his husband and two newborn babies. Such paternal concern is a noble thing. But Buttigieg is supposed to ensure that life-or-death supplies reach millions of strapped Americans. This winter, trains entering and leaving Los Angeles were routinely looted in the Old-West style of train robbing -- without much of a response from Buttigieg's transportation bureau. In Senate testimony Secretary of the Interior Secretary Deb Haaland refused to explain why her department is slow walking federal oil and gas leases at a time when Americans are paying between $5 and $6 a gallon for gas. Haaland was unable to provide simple answers about when new leases will result in more supplies of oil and gas. Her panicked aides slid talking points to her -- given that in deer-in-the-headlights fashion, she seemed incapable of providing senators with basic information about U.S. energy production on federal lands. The United States is sending many billions of dollars worth of sophisticated weapons to Ukraine to combat Russian aggression. We rightly claim it is not a proxy war against Russia but instead an effort to help stop a brutal Russian invasion. Why then did Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin tell the world the very opposite in a fashion that could only convince Russians that our real aim in Ukraine is to destroy Russia as a superpower? As Austin put it publicly, "We want to see Russia weakened to the degree that it can't do the kinds of things that it has done in invading Ukraine." Even if that description of the agenda is true, why broadcast it -- given Russia has over 6,000 nuclear weapons and its President Vladimir Putin is increasingly erratic and paranoid? The common denominator to these Biden appointees is ideological rigidity, nonchalance, and sheer incompetence. They seem indifferent to the current border, inflation, energy, and crime disasters. When confronted, they are unable to answer simple questions from Congress, or they mock anyone asking for answers on behalf of the strapped American people. We don't know why or how such an unimpressive cadre ended up running the government, only that they are here and the American people are suffering from their presence.

Kellyanne Conway called ex-Fox News host Chris Wallace a "ratings-hungry anchor" after he asked about her husband"s tweets on-air: book

"As if he were covering the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 or the building of the border wall in 2019, Wallace asked me a question about my husband," she said. Former Fox News anchor Chris Wallace moderated the first presidential debate on September 29, 2020.Olivier Douliery-Pool/Getty Images Kellyanne Conway blasted Chris Wallace for asking about her husband during an on-air 2019 interview. In her newly-released memoir, Conway accuses Wallace of being a "ratings-hungry anchor." During the Fox News interview, Wallace asked the then-Trump counselor about George Conway's tweets. In March 2019, after the release of the Mueller report on the investigation into Russian interference concerning the 2016 presidential election, then-White House counselor Kellyanne Conway appeared on Fox News to discuss the findings.While the report by former FBI director Robert Mueller did not find that then-President Donald Trump committed a crime, it also did not "exonerate" him on obstruction of justice.The report also found that neither Trump nor anyone in his inner orbit coordinated with Russia during the election.Conway, who had long been incensed by the allegations, would be featured on "Fox News Sunday" to discuss the findings and "the huge letdown they represented for the Trump Derangement Syndrome crowd," which she detailed in her newly-released memoir, "Here's the Deal.""This especially newsy weekend also included a surge in border crossings and Trump's announcement that he was challenging Obamacare through the courts," she wrote. "I addressed all of that in response to Wallace's questions. I held forth with facts and figures about the southern border and the state of healthcare and insurance coverage."The veteran pollster also wrote that she pointed viewers to allegations made by former Nevada state assemblywoman Lucy Flores against Joe Biden, where the onetime Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor accused the former vice president of touching her inappropriately in 2014.However, Wallace asked Conway about her husband, George Conway, a conservative lawyer turned Trump critic who had started to make headlines for his provocative tweets against his wife's then-boss.And she was not amused at having to delve into a topic that she didn't see as pertinent given the news cycle."Wallace, a ratings-hungry anchor, had a full plate of breaking news in front of him," she wrote. "But he still found time to fit the other Conway into my segment. He introduced a new spin on the matter, echoing a theory from New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, who had told me at the British ambassador's residence one night that she had declined an assignment from Vanity Fair to write a piece about George and me."She continued: "As if he were covering the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 or the building of the border wall in 2019, Wallace asked me a question about my husband: 'Do you think he's cyberbullying here to try to get you to quit? Do you think he's jealous of your high profile?'"Conway was frustrated at the line of questioning and chose to pivot away from such inquiries, remarking that she would not be "bullied" into speaking about her husband."I had sadly and privately concluded that yes and possible were the answers to those questions, even though I was not going to be real-time and real-life bullied into discussing all this on national television," she wrote. "Rather, I quickly shut down the line of inquiry. My children did not need their parents attacking each other publicly."She continued: "I was speaking as a mother, not just as a senior counselor or a spouse. But Wallace, the hard-news guy, was unmoved. He persisted and went for the clickbait."He responded: "I guess the question I have to ask, bottom line, final question: Has this hurt your marriage?"She replied: "Oh, Chris, what are you, Oprah now? ... I mean, what am I — on a couch and you are a psychiatrist?"Wallace left Fox News for CNN+ in December, but after the streaming service folded shortly after it launched in March, it was announced that he would have a new show on HBO Max and CNN beginning this fall.A representative for Wallace did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.Read the original article on Business Insider.....»»

Massive New Mexico Fire Started By U.S. Forest Service

Massive New Mexico Fire Started By U.S. Forest Service The largest wildfire in New Mexico history—which is still burning—was started by the U.S. Forest Service, federal investigators announced Friday.  The catastrophe began as two fires that merged into one. Both wildfires have now been conclusively traced to planned burns conducted by the Forest Service. Planned or "prescribed" burns are used to reduce the threat of extreme fires by reducing the amount of dry fuel in the forest.  So far, the New Mexico fire has destroyed 330 homes and scorched some 500 square miles. The cost of battling the blaze has surpassed $130 million, and rises another $5 million each day, according to the Associated Press.    The Hermits Peak Fire started on April 6. On April 19, the Calf Canyon Fire sprang from a reignited "burn pile" that had been dormant through three winter snow events. They merged on April 22, and their destructive march across the Land of Enchantment still hasn't ended.  On May 13, New Mexico governor Michelle Lujan Grisham asked the federal government to cover 100% of the response and recovery costs. Following the Forest Service announcement, Grisham said: “The pain and suffering of New Mexicans caused by the actions of the U.S. Forest Service—an agency that is intended to be a steward of our lands—is unfathomable. This is a first step toward the federal government taking full responsibility for the largest wildfire in state history."   On May 20, Forest Service Chief Randy Moore announced, "I am initiating a pause on prescribed fire operations on National Forest System lands while we conduct a 90-day review of protocols, decision support tools and practices ahead of planned operations this this fall." In a typical year, the Forest Service conducts 4,500 prescribed burns. "In 99.84% of cases, prescribed fires go as planned," said Moore.  As New Mexicans can attest, the other 0.16% can be a doozie. The 2000 Cerro Grande Fire in New Mexico also started as a prescribed burn. Before it was extinguished, it torched 48,000 acres, destroyed buildings at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, left hundreds of families homeless and caused about $1 billion in damage.

Buy Lululemon Stock at a Big Discount and Hold for Years?

Investors might want to consider buying Lululemon as a long-term retail play because its growth outlook is impressive, as are many of its other fundamentals. Lululemon LULU is down 40% from its records heading into its first quarter FY22 earnings release on Thursday, June 2.LULU shares popped 10% earlier this week as Wall Street sees signs of strong consumer spending from higher-income shoppers. Investors might want to consider buying Lululemon as a long-term retail play because its growth outlook is impressive, as are many of its other fundamentals.Far Beyond YogaLululemon helped change the way millions of people dress and inspired the likes of Target TGT and others to start their own athleisure brands. The firm knew it couldn’t stay stagnant and it’s spent years expanding its offerings to include attire people can wear at the gym, the office, a date night, the golf course, and beyond.  LULU has an outwear segment and it’s rolled out self-care products. The company also purchased at-home fitness company Mirror and it’s prepared to introduce other digital fitness offerings.On top of that, it introduced its own women’s footwear segment. And its newest expansion effort is its very own resale shop that allows users to sell and buy used Lululemon apparel. Other major higher-end brands with loyal consumers such as Patagonia have found success with their own resale sites, as the segment gains traction overall.  Image Source: Zacks Investment ResearchOther Fundamentals  Lululemon grew its 2021 sales by 42% to $6.3 billion to help its adjusted earnings climb by 66%. And this growth wasn’t artificially boosted by easy comparisons, since LULU posted 11% revenue growth in the pandemic-hit 2020 and it averaged 17% sales growth between FY20 and FY16.Zacks estimates call for its revenue to climb 21% in 2022 and 15% in 2023 to reach $8.7 billion. Meanwhile, its adjusted earnings are projected to surge 20% both this year and next. Better still, the athleisure superstar in April announced its five-year growth plan to double revenue to $12.6 billion by 2026. The company said it hopes to double its men’s segment, double digital, and quadruple international revenues, “while continuing to grow core areas of the business.”Lululemon’s higher price tags such as $90 shorts and $120 leggings help it post strong margins. Plus, it operates a mainly direct-to-consumer business from its own stores—finished 2021 with 574 locations—and its digital segments, which also helps boost margins. And it has expanded for years without having to spend heavily on marketing.Lululemon’s earnings outlook has improved in the face of economic headwinds to help it grab a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) and it lands an “A” grade for Growth and a “B” for Momentum in our Style Scores system. And the company is insanely well run, boasting a balance sheet that features zero debt, alongside $1.3 billion in cash and equivalents, $4.9 billion in total assets, and $2.2 billion in total liabilities.Image Source: Zacks Investment ResearchBottom LineLululemon stock has soared 509% in the last five years to crush Nike NKE, its industry, and the S&P 500. As we mentioned up top, the stock is down 40% from its November peaks to trade around where it was in May 2020. And its $430 per share Zacks consensus price target represents 47% upside to Friday’s levels.The apparel firm’s valuation has been recalibrated along with the entire market. And its current P/E ratio is looking rather enticing, with Lululemon trading at a 21% discount to its five-year median and 61% below its highs at 29X forward earnings. In fact, it’s traded at far higher forward earnings multiples for most of the past four years.Wall Street is high on Lululemon, with 70% of the 20 brokerage recommendations Zacks has at “Strong Buys.” Some might want to wait for its report, given how wild of single-day moves stocks have made in the past few months amid the market downturn. Yet investors with long-term outlooks might consider buying Lululemon at these levels and holding for years to come. Just Released: The Biggest Tech IPOs of 2022 For a limited time, Zacks is revealing the most anticipated tech IPOs expected to launch this year. Concerns about Federal interest rates and inflation caused many private companies to stay on the bench- leading to companies with better brand recognition and higher growth rates getting into the game.

Spring is when manufacturers launch their latest displays, so you can often find older stock at a solid discount. As a general rule of thumb, one-year-old TV models tend to be very similar to the new sets they're being replaced by, so I generally recommend saving some money by snagging an older display if it's on sale for a good price.However, buyers should keep in mind that Amazon Prime Day 2022 is coming up soon, and it's possible we could see even better TV deals then.You can find more details on the best times to buy a TV here.How to shop for a TVFinding the best TV for your needs can be tricky. Prices vary depending on the features and size you want. On the low-end, you can find some small HDTVs for as little as $100. On the other hand, flagship 4K models in bigger screen sizes can cost $1,500 or more. If you prioritize high-end picture quality for the best movie-watching experience, you'll want to opt for a 4K TV with at least a 65-inch screen. The best 4K TVs use an OLED panel, or an advanced LED screen (often branded as QLED) with features like local dimming and quantum dots. These technologies enable the highest contrast and deepest black levels for a gorgeous high dynamic range (HDR) image.On the other hand, buyers who just want a simple smart TV for casual viewing will likely be satisfied with a smaller display that uses a standard, budget-friendly LED screen. Though picture quality won't be as impressive as pricier models, there are plenty of cheap LED TVs with solid performance, including budget picks that still manage to offer 4K, HDR, and plenty of apps.Read the original article on Business Insider.....»»

18 Major Airlines, FAA, And DOT To Be Sued Over COVID Vaccine Mandates

18 Major Airlines, FAA, And DOT To Be Sued Over COVID Vaccine Mandates Authored by Enrico Trigoso via The Epoch Times (emphasis ours), John Pierce Law has filed a lawsuit against Atlas Air, on behalf of US Freedom Flyers (USFF) and Atlas employees, and plans to sue all major airlines, 18 altogether, plus the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Department of Transportation (DOT), contending that the vaccine mandates imposed by these agencies on the airlines’ employees infringed on their constitutional, religious, and medical liberties. An American Airlines aircraft flies past JetBlue and United Express aircraft as it lands at Reagan National Airport in Arlington, Va., on Jan. 24, 2022. (Joshua Roberts/Reuters) The lawsuit against Atlas Air was filed in federal court in the Southern District of Florida, with over 100 plaintiffs pursuing litigation. “Fundamentally, this case is about whether Americans should be required to choose between their livelihoods and being coerced into taking an experimental, dangerous medical treatment,” reads the lawsuit (pdf). Plaintiffs are mostly unvaccinated pilots, flight attendants, as well as other Atlas staff. “It is also about the safety of America’s airline industry. Should pilots—under federal regulation required to be among the healthiest workers in the United States—who have taken an experimental ‘vaccine’ that is now shown to have potentially deadly, long-term side effects, be allowed to fly massive aircraft in our skies? While those who have (smartly) refrained from such a course be forced out of their jobs?” it states. Atlas Air is one of the industry’s largest cargo carrier companies and the world’s largest operator of the Boeing 747 aircraft. The law firm was founded by Att. John Pierce, who founded the National Constitutional Law Union. He previously represented George Papadopoulos in connection with the 2016 “Russia Hoax,” reaching a dismissal of the DNC’s case and helping secure a presidential pardon. He is also currently representing defendants being charged in connection to the Jan. 6 Capitol breach. “So the complaint has been filed. We’re in the process of serving everyone. And then, we’ll likely be looking for some kind of injunctive relief here soon to make sure that all the COVID-related mandates stop immediately. And then we’ll proceed [with] litigation, motion, practice, and discovery and then onward to trial eventually,” Pierce told The Epoch Times. This week, John Pierce Law plans to file another lawsuit against United Airlines. “We’ll be hitting basically all of them in sequence, and then we’ll be going after the FAA as well. We’re gonna get these vaccine mandate type of rules and COVID restrictions ruled unconstitutional. And we’re gonna get findings that there was discrimination under Title Seven. We’re gonna get punitive damages for intentional infliction of emotional distress and things like that,” Pierce said. “It’s going to require a big fix, ultimately. And that’s probably going to require legislation and kind of getting all the stakeholders at the table, but the first step is civil litigation.” Airlines, which are government contractors, are affected by President Joe Biden’s order from September of last year that states all employees of those companies have to be vaccinated against the Chinese Communist Party virus. Pierce said that as soon as he heard about the airline mandates he predicted that it would be the next big wave of litigations. “[These lawsuits are] absolutely crucial. It’s a very, very red line—If you get to the point where you have to choose between getting an experimental drug shot in your arm and your paycheck, that’s just unAmerican, it’s unconstitutional, it’s outrageous, it’s sickening.” “If that’s not the hill to die on when it comes to liberty, that’s about as close as I can imagine it,” Pierce said. Josh Yoder, a major airline pilot and a spokesperson for Freedom Flyers who recently supported the trucker-led “The People’s Convoy,” says that there has been harassment, threats, intimidation, vaccine injuries, and even “suicides that have come out of these mandates.” “We’re not doing class action. We’re doing individual litigants. And the reason we’re doing it that way is because so many people have been harmed and people have experienced different levels of harm. We have the unvaccinated who have been harassed, threatened, and intimidated into getting vaccinated. Then we have many people as well who got vaccinated against their will, who were coerced and forced into doing it under threat of losing their employment,” Yoder said. “And then, in addition, we have the vaccine-injured, and the numbers of vaccine-injured are growing by the day,” Yoder went on, “It’s just incredible what’s happening with pilots.” Pilots have to maintain a flight physical in order to maintain their licenses. The Epoch Times recently reported that a pilot for American Airlines, one of the top 3 largest airlines in the country, suffered a cardiac arrest between two flights, about 6 minutes after landing. “And so what we’re seeing is many pilots are experiencing health conditions. Specifically, cardiac issues [are] what we’re seeing a lot of. And many of these pilots are afraid to come forward because if they come forward they lose their flight physical, they lose their flight medical. So they’re continuing to fly. We have a lot of pilots that are flying with chest pain and neurological conditions, because if they come forward they lose their careers,” Yoder said. Freedom Flyers is now acting as an advocacy group between the pilots, the FAA, and the companies in order to assist them in coming forward and speaking out on their conditions. “We have a massive team of medical professionals who are helping these people, but we’re asking everyone to come forward. While it’s absolutely devastating to their careers, we need them to come forward because this is the safety of the American public that we’re talking about,” Yoder said. According to a group of attorneys, doctors, and other experts—and a pilot who says his career ended due to adverse reactions from a vaccine—the FAA has been breaking its own rule that states pilots should not fly after having taken medications that have been approved for less than a year, The Epoch Times reported in December. The Epoch Times reached out to Atlas Air for comment. Tyler Durden Fri, 05/27/2022 - 13:29.....»»

2 Great Stocks to Buy in June and Hold Forever

Despite all of the fears and unknowns, investors with long-term outlooks should likely consider buying strong stocks at discounts heading into June and holding them for years. Today, we explore two stocks that are key cogs within the broader economy. Stocks climbed Thursday as investors sort through more economic and earnings data, while continuing to weigh the likelihood of a recession. Wall Street appears to be breathing a slight sigh of relief that the Fed doesn’t plan to ramp up its tightening efforts beyond current market expectations.Investors last week once again prevented the S&P 500 from closing a session down 20% or more from its peaks. The benchmark index is now up over 6% from its intraday lows on Friday, May 20 as it continues to find buyers after it found support at those bear market levels. Wall Street might now attempt to put an end to the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq’s seven-week slide that marked their worst losing streaks since 2001.The market remains focused on an onslaught of headwinds that threaten to throw the U.S. and the global economies into a recession. Fresh Commerce Department data out Thursday said U.S. GDP slipped 1.5% in the first quarter, which was slightly worse than previously thought. This came after JPMorgan last week lowered its U.S. GDP forecast for the second half of the year and 2023, while Goldman Sachs trimmed its outlook for China.The big retailers spooked Wall Street that higher prices across the entire economy would either continue to drag down margins or be passed onto consumers and eventually slow spending. Making matters worse are ongoing inventory issues and supply chain bottlenecks that aren’t set to subside anytime soon with zero-covid lockdowns in various parts of China still ongoing. Russian sanctions also continue to drive up oil and energy costs.   In this chaotic environment, the Fed is attempting to engineer a so-called soft landing for the U.S. economy. Trying to raise interest rates to pull down 40-year high inflation without helping push the economy into a recession won’t be easy.Thankfully, stocks have already been significantly recalibrated, with many growth names and former covid high-flyers having lost more than two years’ worth of gains as investors price in rising interest rates—Cathie Wood’s ARK Innovation ETF is the perfect example. And it’s not just growth stocks, with the S&P 500 now trading around its March 2021 levels.The nearby chart shows that the benchmark index is trading 40% below its highs and near its 20-year median at 17.1X forward 12-month earnings. And the S&P 500 is well below where it was before the initial covid selloff and much of 2016, 2017, and 2018.Wall Street is still trying to figure out how much more of a beating the market can take and the eventual market bottom can often only be located in retrospect. Therefore, despite all of the fears and unknowns, investors with long-term outlooks should likely consider buying strong stocks at discounts heading into June and holding them for years. Today, we explore two stocks that are key cogs within the broader economy.Image Source: Zacks Investment ResearchMicron Technology, Inc. MU Micron is a global memory chip powerhouse, with its offerings found everywhere from PCs to smartphones. Historically, the memory side of the semiconductor market has been impacted greatly by pricing, which has tended to make Micron more cyclical than the larger chip space. Micron’s days of trading more like a commodity might not last forever as its portfolio benefits from expansion into other secular growth areas such as data centers, connected vehicles, and artificial intelligence.Micron’s fiscal 2021 sales surged 29% and its adjusted earnings skyrocketed 115%. More importantly, MU provided upbeat guidance when it reported its second quarter FY22 results at the end of March. The strong showing and outlook highlights MU’s expanded reach and improved pricing power across its portfolio.Zacks estimates call for MU’s FY22 revenue to climb 21% to $33.6 billion, with FY23 expected to surge another 18% to over $39 billion. At the bottom end, Micron’s adjusted earnings are projected to soar 57% and 22%, respectively. MU has topped our bottom-line estimates in every quarter but one in the past five years. And its FY22 and FY23 consensus estimates have climbed recently, even as many companies across the economy lower their guidance.Image Source: Zacks Investment ResearchSemiconductors are the backbone of the digital-driven global economy and Micron shares have doubled the Zacks semiconductor market over the last 10 years and outpaced Technology as a whole, up 1,200% vs. 300%. MU is down in 2022 and it currently trades 27% below its records. Plus, Micron’s Zacks consensus prices target represents nearly 50% upside to its current $71 a share price tag.The pullback and its strong earnings outlook, helps Micron trade near its three-year lows at 6.3X forward 12-month earnings. This also marks a 63% discount to the chip sector and 75% value compared to its own highs during the past few years.Micron’s strong balance sheet will also help it continue to invest in growth and return value to shareholders through buybacks and dividends. No wonder 14 of the 16 brokerage recommendations Zacks has for Micron are “Strong Buys.”Mastercard Incorporated MAMastercard is a consumer and business credit card powerhouse that operates an elaborate backend processing network. MA is diversifying beyond traditional credit cards in order to become a global payments and fintech player built for our dynamic digital finance environment. Mastercard’s newer efforts include buy now, pay later offerings, as well as cryptocurrency-focused acquisitions, and other purchases focused on the future. And Mastercard, alongside Visa, is raising the interchange fees that merchants pay for accepting credit cards. Mastercard crushed our first quarter earnings estimate by 27% at the end of April. The strong showing was driven by its cross-border segment for the second period in a row. MA executives said that its travel-focused segment was stronger than it projected and above 2019 levels for the first time since the pandemic began.Mastercard’s 2021 revenue surged 23% to outpace its pre-pandemic totals by $2 billion. Meanwhile, its adjusted FY21 earnings climbed 31%. Despite slowing economic growth, consumer spending remains strong, which is reflected in its outlook. Zacks estimates call for 17% sales expansion both this year and next to see MA pull in $26 billion in 2023. Mastercard’s adjusted EPS are expected to climb 25% this year and another 20% in 2023.Image Source: Zacks Investment Research Mastercard raised its quarterly dividend by 11% and MA’s board authorized an additional $8 billion share repurchase program last fall. Mastercard currently lands a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) and 15 of the 20 brokerage recommendations Zacks has are “Strong Buys” with two more “Buys,” and only one below a “Hold.”Some investors might be a little nervous about buying a credit card stock with the possibility of a recession on the horizon. But if you have any confidence in the long-term economic growth in the U.S. and beyond, Mastercard is certainly a stock to own, especially as cash falls further out of favor.MA shares have soared 850% in the last 10 years to destroy the S&P 500’s 300% climb and its industry’s 285%. This includes a 200% run in the past five years. On top of that, Mastercard stock has held up rather nicely amid all of the selling, with it nearly flat in the trailing 12 months and down only 2% in 2022.At roughly $350 per share, Mastercard trades 13% below its records and its current Zacks consensus price target represents 23% upside. The recent downturn has readjusted its valuation, with MA trading 35% below its own highs at 30.5X forward 12-month earnings and below its five-year median of 31.9X. In fact, Mastercard’s valuation is not too far above its decade-long median.  Just Released: Zacks Top 10 Stocks for 2022 In addition to the investment ideas discussed above, would you like to know about our 10 top buy-and-hold tickers for the entirety of 2022?
