Goldman Sachs: These 3 Stocks Are Poised to Surge by at Least 50%

Is it time for the bears to break out the champagne glasses? Not so fast, says Goldman Sachs. Volatility has ruled the Street for the last few weeks, leading some to conclude that those with a more pessimistic outlook had been vindicated, but the firm believes stocks can still climb higher.According to Goldman Sachs’ head of U.S. equity strategy, David Kostin, the S&P 500 could still hit 3,600 by the end of the year, and 3,800 by mid-2021, on the back of vaccine-related optimism and progress with the economic reopening. This would reflect gains of 10% and 16%, respectively, should the index ultimately reach these targets.“Despite the sharp sell-off in the past week, we remain optimistic about the path of the U.S. equity market in coming months.

From Good Housekeeping

Buying from Black-owned shops, stores and brands is one of the many ways to be an ally and show support to a community that has been deeply affected by systemic racism. Not only are Black business owners turned down for loans twice as often as their white counterparts, but they have also been hit the hardest by the coronavirus pandemic. Your money can make a difference, especially when you continuously choose to buy Black for everyday lifestyle staples like makeup, clothes, food, and more.

A simple Google search will direct you to Black-owned businesses within your community, but we’ve also compiled a list of brands that Good Housekeeping editors and Good Housekeeping Institute product analysts personally love that you can shop online right now in honor of National Black Business Month. Our hope is that you’ll find some new favorite products here

Just a month ago, the Porter Flea almost didn’t happen. “We knew we had to make a big decision—either cancel the event or pivot and make it virtual,” says interior designer Katie Vance who founded the Flea alongside her husband, Matt Alexander, owner of furniture company HollerDesign. Normally, it’s the premier pop-up event of Nashville’s local artisan scene. But when the city rolled back its reopening phase—from Phase 3 to Phase 2—due to rising coronavirus cases, it dashed all hopes for the expected in-person experience. What followed would be a four-week whirlwind of designing limited edition merchandise, calling and coordinating with vendors, not to mention developing a virtual shopping experience on their website.

“In the end, over 110 vendors stayed to be a part, of we are now calling Porter in Place, which was such a silver lining positive moment in all of this,” says

The COVID-19 pandemic has got us cooped up indoors, joining Zoom meetings with our cameras off, sweatpants on, and a messy bun to top it off. Now, with work from home policies likely staying in effect for many of us until next year, that work-attire wardrobe is going to keep collecting dust. But there’s still one way we can easily make a statement (and make us want to turn those cameras on): jewelry. 

I’ve personally collected jewelry all my life–earrings, especially, being my favorite collector’s item. I buy them as gifts, mementos, or accessories for every new outfit. I often buy vintage pieces or homemade pairs from artisan markets when I travel abroad.

Last year, I had the unfortunate displeasure of having a pouch of my jewelry stolen at the airport on my way home from a glorious summer trip to Cuba and Panama.
