A BuzzFeed News analysis found that top fake election news stories generated more total engagement on Facebook than top election stories from 19 major news outlets combined.

The sites examined were among the most traditionally trusted news sites in the world:

To examine the performance of election content from mainstream sites, we created a list that included the websites of the New York Times, Washington Post, NBC News, USA Today, Politico, CNN, Wall Street Journal, CBS News, ABC News, New York Daily News, New York Post, BuzzFeed, Los Angeles Times, NPR, The Guardian, Vox, Business Insider, Huffington Post, and Fox News.

Investors should buy CBS on the dip, because it is a very attractive acquisition target for companies outside of the television industry, B. Riley FBR managing director and analyst Barton Crockett told CNBC on Monday.

“CBS is a huge brand; it’s the most watched network on TV. They also have Showtime, which is big and kind of direct-to-consumer. I think that CBS could be an interesting bolt onto a larger platform,” Crockett said on CNBC’s “Power Lunch.”

On Sunday evening, CBS announced Les Moonves will depart as chairman, president and chief executive officer “effective immediately,” following numerous allegations of sexual misconduct that spanned much of his career. The company said COO Joseph Ianniello will now act as CEO “while the Board conducts a search for a permanent successor.”

Also on Sunday came news of a board reshuffling and an end to hostility between CBS and National Amusements (NAI), which owns a controlling stake in CBS. The two companies will drop their lawsuit against each other, and NAI will not pursue the merger of CBS and Viacom for at least two years. NAI also said it would consider “any business combination transaction or other strategic alternative that the independent directors believe are in the best interests of the Company.”

    Wednesday was a generally favorable day for the stock market, with modest gains for most major benchmarks even as the Russell 2000 once again hit intraday record highs. Most investors’ attention was focused on the retail sector, where an especially strong performance from department store giant Macy’s suggested that the long period of difficult conditions for brick-and-mortar retailers might finally have come to an end. Ongoing concerns about other factors — including the move in the 10-year Treasury yield above the 3% mark and the outcome of a possible summit between U.S. and North Korean leaders — helped keep the gains somewhat in check. But some companies had good news that sent their shares sharply higher. Under Armour (NYSE:UA) (NYSE:UAA), Boot Barn Holdings (NYSE:BOOT), and Abaxis (NASDAQ:ABAX) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Not long ago, liquidation seemed inevitable for bankrupt department store operator Bon-Ton Stores Inc. (NASDAQ:BONT). The company’s desperate attempt to restructure outside the bankruptcy process failed earlier this year when it couldn’t find an investor willing to finance a comeback effort.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Last week, bankrupt department store operator Bon-Ton Stores (NASDAQ:BONT) made one last desperate bid to survive. A group led by mall owners Namdar Realty Group and Washington Prime Group (NYSE:WPG) signed a letter of intent to buy the company out of bankruptcy and continue operating at least some of its stores.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    However, the outlook for J.C. Penney stock could be improving as competition in the department store sector starts to wane. Sears Holdings (NASDAQ:SHLD) recently revealed another round of store closures. Furthermore, Bon-Ton (NASDAQ:BONT) announced this week that it will liquidate after its attempt to emerge from bankruptcy as a going concern failed.

    In 2018, TJX will benefit from a lower tax rate and easier year-over-year comparisons. It is also likely to be one of the biggest beneficiaries of Bon-Ton Stores’ (NASDAQ:BONT) pending liquidation. This could send TJX stock to new heights later this year.

Hot Medical Stocks To Invest In Right Now

If you find yourself with $1,000 all of a sudden — or perhaps through slow consistent saving — you might be wondering: What’s next? Maybe ideas of a beach vacation are floating through your head, or maybe you’re thinking about buying yourself a big-ticket gadget like a new computer or TV.

1. Pay off your debts

If you’re carrying any high-interest debt like a balance on your credit card, medical bills, or a personal line of credit, you should absolutely be paying it off as quickly as possible. $1,000 can go a long way toward clearing your debt, especially if you’re only making minimum monthly payments.

When you pay off high-interest debt, you’re effectively getting a guaranteed return on investment for your $1,000. So, if you have $1,000 in credit card debt accruing interest at a 20% annual rate, you’ll save $200 per year in interest expenses you would have paid if you didn’t pay down that debt.
