I don't know. I don't know. Obviously, totally doable still, but I don't think it's necessarily a walk in the park by any means, and I don't think everyone can do it. The hardest one I ever did — there have been some really, really close runners-up — but it was a scene on "Handmaid's." I've known for a while how it was going to end, so I don't think I can say anything.

Here’s why we eat popcorn at the movies

But the perfect (and very profitable) pairing of today wasn’t always the case: For many years, movie theaters wanted nothing to do with the snack. People watch movies in a newly reopened AMC River East theater on Aug. 20, 2020, in Chicago. Popular movies often bring collectible cups and popcorn buckets, or, in industry-speak, Collectible Concession Vehicles (CCVs). The cinema business will continue to evolve, but one thing will remain constant, said Gil of Queen’s University. “Theaters will stop playing movies before they will actually stop selling popcorn.”

New York CNN —Buying or selling a stock is about to get a lot snappier starting next Tuesday. But that doesn’t mean it’ll get smoother, at least right away — and some financial firms are preparing to handle any possible bumpiness. Clearinghouses, which sit between buyers and sellers, collect margins from traders as evidence that they can afford to make the transaction. Baird has had a T+1 committee in place since last summer to ensure such hiccups don’t happen, Lee said. “The existing two-day period to settle trades exposes investors and the industry to unnecessary risk and is ripe for change,” Robinhood CEO Vlad Tenev said in a February 2021 release.

Independent U.S. presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. hikes in the Santa Monica Mountains in Los Angeles on March 18, 2024. "My administration will support the Ape retail rebellion and enact aggressive Wall Street reforms," Kennedy Jr. wrote in a social media post. The apes were motivated in part by a desire to buck bearish Wall Street analysts' grim assessments of the companies' long-term prospects. Kennedy Jr. is actively courting undecided voters with a fringe political brand that could appeal to some anti-establishment meme stock investors. Kennedy Jr. has made obscure statements about his investment record.

The bank double upgraded the online brokerage and financial service provider to buy from underperform on Friday, raising its price target to $24 from $14, implying about 34% upside in the shares.

GameStop's meme-stock rally officially ended on Friday after the company announced plans to sell 45 million shares. GameStop said the extreme rally in its stock does "not appear to be based on the underlying fundamentals of our business." This week's meme-stock rally that sent shares of GameStop surging as much 271% is done. The rally in GameStop shares came to its sputtering conclusion on Friday when the struggling video game retailer announced plans to sell 45 million shares in an at-the-market offering, which could result in massive dilution for existing shareholders. AdvertisementThis type of share sale allows GameStop to, at its discretion, sell shares directly in the open market to willing buyers to raise capital, with an upside limit of 45 million shares.
