He did not disclose how much of At Home Honest Capital owns. At Home has negotiated a 40-day “go shop” period with Hellman & Friedman that allows it to solicit bids from other potential buyers. The shares ended trading at $36.30 on Monday, still above the deal price. Badlani, who had been a partner at activist investor Mick McGuire’s Marcato Capital Management for nearly a decade, founded Honest Capital in 2020. Since its launch, Honest Capital has returned a net 109.6% largely by betting on smaller, less-recognized stocks.

Teenagers aren’t often taught that extreme jealousy is not romantic, but is a sign of an unhealthy relationship. It was painful and difficult to recount that experience for my book, to lay plain my own vulnerabilities and dark moments. More than one person has told me my book gave them the clarity and strength to leave an unhealthy relationship. These book bans deprive students of a better understanding of themselves and each other. They want to shield their children from anything that suggests a world beyond their narrow perception.

Health insurer Humana is using its cash to shape the future of healthcare outside of hospitals. It's also helping clinic upstarts such as Iora Health, ChenMed, and Oak Street Health expand. About seven years ago, Humana approached Iora Health, a primary-care startup in Boston, with a proposition. Sometimes it helps the company scale its operations, upgrade its technology, or transition to taking on financial responsibility for patients' health. It also paid $2.7 million in license fees to reimburse Humana for the cost of owning or leasing and maintaining the health clinics.

Long-term investors don't need to worry about the cracks forming in the clean energy trade this year, says one market watcher. Popular exchange-traded funds focused on sustainable energy including the Invesco Solar ETF (TAN) and the Invesco WilderHill Clean Energy ETF (PBW) have lost significant momentum this year, down about 30% and 26%, respectively. "When you think about the transformation to clean energy, we think about it over decades, not days," Hoffman told CNBC's "ETF Edge" on Monday. "We think there's still a fair amount of headroom in this space, especially as this transformation to clean energy plays out," he said. "Europe's really dominated the ETF space in ESG investing, but we're catching up," with some $11 billion flowing into these funds, Yones said in the same "ETF Edge" interview.

Advocates note that India’s limited access to vaccines, oxygen and hospital beds is exposing the deep divisions that exist in Indian society. “Poor Indians — no matter what background they are — simply have no means or no way to get help,” said Rasheed Ahmed, the executive director of the Indian American Muslim Council. “It takes about $20,000 to set up a rural hospital with 25 beds and medical staff,” said Wasnik. Ahmed added that he and other members of the Council say that Modi should resign over his handling of the crisis. “How much can NGOs do?” said Ahmed of the Indian American Muslim Council.

May 10 (Reuters) - U.S. inflation expectations have surged to the highest in a decade as the economy reopens from COVID-19-related shutdowns, putting investors at odds with the Federal Reserve which sees price pressures still far from its target. Inflation expectations as measured by breakevens on Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS) over the coming five years jumped to a 10-year high of 2.73% on Monday. The jump comes at the same time that Fed policymakers talk down inflation expectations, saying near-term inflation will be transitory and that there are challenges in reaching their average target of 2% on an ongoing basis. It’s not always a perfect reflection of inflation expectations,” said Michael Lorizio, senior fixed-income trader at Manulife Investment Management in Boston. The Fed is expected to shift its bond purchases in the coming months, which may marginally reduce purchases of TIPS and exert some downward pressure on breakeven rates.

BERLIN—A small German company’s success in coming up with the West’s first Covid-19 vaccine is drawing attention from investors in a country where biotech has struggled to raise funding in recent years. Mainz-based BioNTech SE partnered with U.S. pharmaceutical giant Pfizer Inc. to develop the first coronavirus vaccine approved in the U.S. and Europe last year. Domestic rival CureVac NV is hoping its own shot will get approved in Europe in the coming weeks. Now, more German and international investors are looking to invest in search of the next hidden gem in German biotech, venture capitalists, executives and analysts say. In 2020, German biotech companies raised a record of €3.05 billion, equivalent to $3.7 billion, through venture capital, share offerings and convertible bonds, triple the amount for 2019, according to Ernst & Young.

The DarkSide hacker gang that is reportedly responsible for the devastating Colonial Pipeline attack this weekend is a relatively new group, but cybersecurity analysts already know enough about them to determine just how dangerous they are. According to Boston-based Cybereason, DarkSide is an organized group of hackers set up along the "ransomware as a service" business model, meaning the DarkSide hackers develop and market ransomware hacking tools, and sell them to other criminals who then carry out attacks. Bloomberg first reported that DarkSide may be involved in the attack on Colonial Pipeline. On Monday, Cybereason provided CNBC with a new statement from DarkSide's website that appears to address the Colonial Pipeline shutdown. The hackers continue to expand: Cybereason reports they recently released a new version of their malware: DarkSide 2.0.
