Goldman Sachs Predicts Over 40% Rally for These 3 Stocks

A new wave of optimism is splashing onto the Street. Investment firm Goldman Sachs just gave its three-month stock forecast a boost, lifting it from Neutral to Overweight, with it also projecting “high single-digital returns” for global stocks over the next year.What’s behind this updated approach? Goldman Sachs strategist Christian Mueller-Glissmann cites the impressive rebound in global earnings growth and reduced equity costs as the drivers of the estimate revision. On top of this, a “broader procyclical shift” in stocks and other assets could take place during the remainder of this year.“We have shifted more cyclical on sectors and themes tactically but still prefer growth vs. value on a strategic horizon… In the near-term, elevated uncertainty on U.S. elections and a better global growth outlook might benefit non-U.S. equities more, but in the medium term a large weight in

Dutch Design Week cancelled

All physical events at next month’s Dutch Design Week have been cancelled due to a rise in coronavirus cases in the city.

Eindhoven’s mayor John Jorritsma announced the decision today, less than three weeks ahead of the biggest design event in the Dutch calendar.

Mayor “cannot decide otherwise”

“When I see the increasing numbers of infections in our city, with the images of the overflowing healthcare system in spring still vividly in mind, I cannot decide otherwise than to prioritise fighting the virus and preventing new infections,” Jorritsma said.

“Welcoming or facilitating large groups of people who visit DDW in the city, is not part of that.”

Dutch Design Week (DDW) usually attracts around 350,000 visitors to the city and bills itself as the largest design event in northern Europe.

This year’s festival was due to take place from 17 to 25

Pamplin Media Group – Housing advocate to address region’s shortage of homes

Emilee Geist

Pamplin Media co-sponsors the free public talk as part of Portland Housing Month on Wednesday, Oct. 7.

Nationally recognized affordable housing advocate Randy Shaw will highlight Portland Housing Month with a free online presentation on Wednesday, Oct. 7. He is best known for arguing that cities should encourage the construction of as much new housing as fast as possible to bring down skyrocketing rents and home prices.

“I’m going to talk about the need to build more housing and how to make the case for it,” said Shaw, an attorney, author and activist who lives in Berkeley, California.

Shaw also is the author of the 2018 book “Generation Priced Out: Who Will Live in the New Urban America?” It includes studies of progressive cities — including Portland — whose housing policies have nevertheless caused rents and home costs to increase to the point that most lower-income and minority residents no

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to rock the workplace with no end in sight, leaving business leaders to struggle with a wide variety of challenges, including keeping staff members happily engaged—and employed.

To make sense of the pandemic’s impact on workers—both on their day-to-day roles, as well as their mental well-being—a forthcoming article in American Psychologist examines current organizational psychology research to help business leaders manage COVID-related fallout in the workplace and develop solutions to ease the stress many employees are experiencing.

“We live in an incredibly interconnected global community.

Outlier’s online college courses can save students thousands of dollar

Emilee Geist

This summer, as it became apparent that COVID-19 showed no signs of letting up, colleges across the country announced that fall classes would be held remotely. But though students are taking classes from the comfort of their own homes instead of lecture halls, the cost of tuition remains the same.

Enter, founded in 2019, offers online courses, taught by university-affiliated professors, with credit that can be transferred to traditional universities. And while a student might pay $50,000 in tuition to attend class from home, they could instead spend $400 to take a class on that would transfer over, saving them tens of thousands of dollars. It’s the winner of our 2020 Innovation by Design Award in the category of Learning.
