Big Kids Don’t Want To Share In “Sharing Economy” Sandbox

Plenty of analysts, market-watchers, and thought leaders are excited about Uber, Airbnb, and the advent of the so-called “sharing economy.”

Here’s the thing: The sharing economy isn’t for everybody.

Why not? Because, as we learned in the sandbox, not everyone wants to share.

Here’s How The Supreme Court Rigged Healthcare Stocks

U.S. markets were relatively quiet last week with the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropping 0.4% to 17,946.68, the S&P 500 also slipping 0.4% to 2101.49 and the NASDAQ Composite shedding 0.7% to 5080.51.
