Warner Bros. Renames "Birds of Prey" to Emphasize Harley Quinn

1 Comment

After a disappointing premiere week, AT&T (NYSE: T) subsidiary Warner Bros. has decided to rename the DC Comics movie Birds of Prey. The new marquee name emphasizes the popular character Harley Quinn in an attempt to spark fresh interest in the R-rated adaptation of a comic-book story.

The film's original title was Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), but that's a bit of a mouthful and even the studio's own marketing materials often shortened the title to Birds of Prey. You'll find the mention of Harley Quinn, played by Margot Robbie, if you squint a bit. The new name is Harley Quinn: Birds Of Prey, placing an explicit focus on Quinn.

Leading theater chains AMC (NYSE: AMC) and Regal Cinemas  (NYSE: RGC) are using the updated name in their online ticket-buying portals.

Amazon Prepares to Go to War With Trump Over JEDI Award

1 Comment

Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN) is ready to go to war with Washington to try to overturn a $10 billion government cloud computing contract award, asking the U.S. Court of Federal Claims for authorization to depose President Donald Trump, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper, and former Defense Secretary James Mattis as part of its attempt to prove Trump intervened in the awarding of the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) contract.

The Pentagon's October award of the JEDI contract to Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) raised some eyebrows at the time, as Amazon was considered the front-runner by most analysts. Amazon in November filed suit to try to reverse the award, claiming that Trump's long-standing feud with Amazon and its CEO Jeff Bezos caused him to get involved and steer the contract to Microsoft.

Tesla Is Partying Like It's 1999, and It's Not Going to End Well

1 Share

Wall Street and investors would like to believe that having access to information at the click of a button leads to rational and orderly investing habits. However, it doesn't always work out this way.

Back in 1999, during the dot-com boom, Wall Street and investors also had easy access to information. Yet investing in 1999 seemingly had little to do with what was on a company's income statement or balance sheet and more to do with pie-in-the-sky promises regarding e-commerce potential. As a result, investors could seemingly throw a dart at the newspaper and come out a winner.

Of course, hindsight being what it is, we know how the dot-com era ended -- and it's wasn't pretty for investors.
