Audi, "The Mother Of All Dieselgate Cheating," Keeps Its Oblivious CEO Rupert Stadler

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 13:30:00 GMT2016-09-24T09:30:00Z

Last Wednesday, Audi CEO Rupert Stadler was interrogated by investigators of the Jones Day lawfirm, who showed great interest in his involvement with Volkswagen’s dieselgate scandal.What transpired on the hot seat depends on who you ask.

The 5 Most-Sold Stocks Of All US Investment Funds

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 21:03:00 GMT2016-09-23T17:03:00Z

Hedge funds have struggled to outperform the market in 2016. According to the Barclay Hedge Fund Index, the average net return for hedge funds year to date is 3.43%, compared to 6.1% for the S&P 500. Throughout the second quarter and third quarter, the market has continued its heated pace of growth, even as several worrying trends signal a disconnect from economic reality. For one, nonfinancial-corporate profits from current production (operating income) declined from a 7.6% increase in the year ended June 2015 to a 9.3% contraction for the year ended June 2016. At the same time, nonfinancial corporate debt rose from 601% in the second quarter 2015 to 697% in the recent second quarter, the highest since 717% reached in second quarter 2010, according to Moody’s Analytics.
