(Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)(Photo: Spencer Platt, Getty Images)Wall Street is bracing for another rough day as the Dow is down more than 200 points in pre-market trading amid a fresh slide in oil prices below the key $30 per barrel mark and continued fears about slowing global growth.The rocky start to 2016 for stocks looks set to continue as investors contend with well-known yet persistent headwinds ranging from continued price declines in the oil patch, concerns about the impact of China's slowing growth on the U.S. and other world economies, and questions surrounding the pace -- and timing -- of interest rate hikes from the U.S. Federal Reserve.About an hour before Monday's opening bell on Wall Street, the Dow Jones industrial average was down about 230 points, or 1.4%. The broader Standard & Poor's 500 was off 1.5% and the Nasdaq composite, which got crushed on Friday, was pointing down 2.2%.Last week, the S&P 500 fell 3.1%, leaving it down 8% on the year and 11.8% off its May 21, 2015, closing high.Markets are in a state of confusion following a mixed U.S. jobs report Friday. While the 151,000 new jobs created in January fell short of estimates, positives such as the unemployment rate falling to 4.9% and a bigger-than-expected jump in wage growth kept the prospect of a Fed rate hike in March on the table. Wall Street fears a too-aggressive Fed wi...  

4 Big Dividend Pharmaceutical Stocks to Buy That Are Very Cheap Now

If you ever want to look for value in a sector in the stock market, then when you see Congress calling in some of the top companies to scold them for political purposes, you may want to start buying. Last week there they were, as congressional blowhards attacked the greedy pharmaceutical industry for high drug prices. Are some too high? Sure, but failure is very expensive in the pharmaceutical arena. Politicians don’t care, and never turn down a good venue to harangue a company spokesperson for populous gains. We have noted before, that this political rhetoric could hang around through the entire election cycle. However, huge reform and across-the-board price cuts most likely will never happen with a Republican-controlled House and Senate. We screened our 24/7 Wall St. research database for top pharmaceutical stocks that have been knocked down and are offering investors very enticing entry points.

Liverpool FC fans ticket price protest reaches parliament

Merseyside MP John Pugh is urging parliament to support Liverpool FC fans’ protest at the proposed hike in ticket prices next season. The Southport Lib Dem has tabled an Early Day Motion at the House of Commons in support of LFC supporters who walked out of the Sunderland game on the 77th minute on Saturday.

With World T20 on the horizon, India bid to cement top spot in Sri Lanka showdown

More importantly, Dhoni is back to being captain cool. Forget the numbers, the series win in Australia did wonders for India. The top order outdid itself, and in Bumrah, Dhoni found a pacer he could trust. The series also the saw the return of a few weathered heroes of yore in Yuvraj Singh and Ashish Nehra.

Philadelphia Baseball Ghosts: Mahlon Duckett

It's a fun thing, to beat a legend. For many ball players, Philadelphia becomes merely a second home. What we aim to do with the "Philadelphia Baseball Ghosts" series is take a look at those who are born within Philadelphia city limits before they set off on their grand baseball adventure somewhere else in the vast, horrible world. Check out all the entries in this series in our handy little Philadelphia Baseball Ghost hub. *** Mahlon Duckett DOB: December 20, 1922 What was going on in Philadelphia at the time: Big things, this city was taking on in the early twenties. It was the year of Duckett's birth in which food vendors were first required to "cover their wares and store them at proper temperatures." So effective was this new ruling that, a mere five years later, the city's top building inspector could not contain his utter joy at the bustling street-level economy: "Building Inspection Bureau chief Morris Brooks (1888-1958) described vendors as 'eyesores on our principal streets' and felt they gave Philadelphia a reputation as a city where customers could be easily swindled by larcenous sellers." --Philadelphia Encyclopedia You can't blame him for being a little testy. 1922 was also when the Tasty Baking Company moved from Germantown to North Philadelphia, changing the daily routines of anyone looking for their sugar fix. "I don't understand how we are supposed to find them if they keep moving around so much!" the city's pastry-fiends were heard to mutter to ea...  

Deutsche Bank AG: More Turmoil for European Banks

The poor performance of most of the European banks is now becoming very apparent in contrast to their American counterparts’ performance. Investors are becoming frustrated that if US banks are able to deliver good earnings, then why not European banks? Business Finance News takes a look at how Deutsche bank is playing its role in this fiasco. Deutsche Bank AG (USA) (NYSE: DB) CEO John Cryan made it very clear after his appointment last year that Deutsche Bank’s overhaul might take years to fully deliver. Till then, the bank might take a hit for additional expenses incurred for the overhaul. Deutsche Bank’s investors have been reserved for its poor results, abrupt share sales, sudden management changes, and financial scandals. The German giant, like other European banks, is facing stringent regulations, which have pressurized it to increase its capital in order to create a buffer for any future loss. All the major European banks have witnessed a significant decline in their share price since the New Year started. Deutsche bank, Credit Suisse, UBS AG, Barclays and RBS shares have declined 30%, 31%, 21%, 22% and 21%, respectively. European countries bailed out their banks during the crises and now they have ownership in banks which are losing their market value. European banks have raised more than $400 billion of new equity since 2007. But investors are wary of the current declining market cap and they are in hope of improving the situation, especially fro...  

GoodBelly Reveals the Scoop on America's Poop

BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--No buts about it, everybody poops. In fact, the average person poops once per day, yet the topic of bowel movements and what people do while “doing the doo” remains widely undiscussed. That’s why GoodBelly, maker of probiotic drinks, shots and supplements formulated for daily digestive health,* decided to do America a solid and get the scoop on poop. GoodBelly surveyed more than 3,600 American adults about their bathroom habits, revealing that mornings are the most popular time to poop, men spend more time on the toilet than women, and 43 percent of adults have pooped their pants at least once. Additional findings include: 96 percent of people get the scoop on their own poop, looking at it before flushing. 50 percent spend just 1-3 minutes pooping per sitting. 58 percent of couples have an open dialogue about pooping, and 22 percent have an open door policy. 20 percent often poop at work (because who doesn’t love getting paid to poop?). 53 percent avoid using public restrooms whenever possible (because, yuck!). 67 percent use mobile devices while on the toilet. 37 percent text or email when using the restroom. 28 percent of people poop multiple times each day, but nearly 10 percent are surprisingly only going three times or less per week. Young adults ages 18-24 spend more time on the toilet than any other adult age group, and people ages 65 and over are the quickest. “We can all find humor in poop as on...
