The Jaguars managed to beat the Dolphins 23-20 thanks to a last-second field goal from Matthew Wright that split the uprights. The path to that final play was not pretty for either team, however. The fourth quarter was filled with questionable decisions that came from both coaching staffs. Dolphins coach Brian Flores will face most of the heat for the calls that led to Miami's fifth straight loss. That said, Urban Meyer is not absolved of some of the choices that he made in the fourth quarter of Jacksonville's win.

She finished with 15 points, 11 rebounds, six assists and two steals off the bench.  The Sun defense locked in to start the fourth quarter of a one-point game, forcing the Sky into shot clock violations and fulfilling the two keys head coach Curt Miller wanted to see in the bounce-back win.

No. 6 Clemson entered its home game favored by 27.5 points, but Georgia Tech gave them all they could handle in a fourth-quarter filled with big and head-scratching plays. It was a low-scoring affair throughout and the Tigers struggled to move the ball. Clemson opened things up with a three-yard run to the end zone in the first quarter courtesy of running back Will Shipley, who finished his day with 88 yards. And Georgia Tech was able to nail a 22-yard field goal to end the second quarter and go into halftime within striking distance 7–3. After a scoreless third quarter, it was a physical slug fest in the game's final minutes and it appeared Clemson sealed it with another three-yard Shipley run to extend their lead 14–3 with 8:12 remaining...
    In this article ETH.CM= BTC.CM= NEM JPM VIDEO4:2804:28These undervalued, 'inflation-proof' stocks could outperform in Q4Trading NationInvestors may be on the lookout for inflation hedges after better-than-expected consumer price data failed to keep the broader market afloat on Tuesday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite all closed lower on Tuesday despite the Labor Department's Consumer Price Index showing a lower-than-expected increase in August. The financials sector could offer some protection against a modest rise in inflation given its largely fixed operational costs, New Street Advisors Group CEO and founder Delano Saporu told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Tuesday. His top pick in the space was JPMorgan for its "great loan book," investment banking prowess and lower-than-usual valuation as of the last several months. "This is one that's a leader in global investment banking fees with 9% of the wallet share," he said. "If you look at what they've traded at in the last three months as yields have lowered, this may be an opportunity for investors that have liked this stock to come back in at a...

    Minnesota Timberwolves rookie Anthony Edwards points to the reason why the team has performed better in the fourth quarter throughout the season. The Minnesota Timberwolves are well out of a playoff spot, but they are embracing the role of spoiler. That was evident on Saturday, when the Timberwolves defeated the first-place Utah Jazz 101-96. Plenty of credit comes from their effort in the fourth quarter, where the Timberwolves limited the Jazz to 22 points (7-of-16 from the field). Following the win, Timberwolves rookie Anthony Edwards was asked about how the team has improved in the fourth quarter of the season. Edwards pointed to one reason as to why that is the case — he was on the bench at the start of the season. Asked Anthony Edwards why the Timberwolves have been playing better in 4th quarters recently compared to the beginning of the season. His answer: "I was on the bench back then." — Dane Moore (@DaneMooreNBA) April 25, 2021 Anthony Edwards credits getting off bench for Timberwolves’ fourth quarter improvementsEdwards is honest and to the point, you have...
    The United States will undergo a period of immense social upheaval in the 2020s as millennials take over from boomers, and will be guided by a 'Gray Champion' who combines aspects of 'the leader and the saint', according to a book written almost 25 years ago that's getting a fresh look. Neil Howe, a historian, economist, and demographer, and William Strauss, an author and theatre producer who died in 2007, published their book in 1997. Entitled The Fourth Turning: What the Cycles of History Tell Us About America's Next Rendezvous with Destiny, fans of the book say it has proved remarkably prescient, and believe it shows what is to come. Critics say it is unscientific and vague. The authors argue that America sees a 'turning' every 20 years, when one generation displaces another. Fans of the 1997 book say it predicted unrest, such as that of the past two years.

    Do NBA players that score a greater percentage of their points in the fourth quarter get paid more handsomely? How should we value fourth-quarter scoring relative to scoring overall? Many of the most memorable NBA moments have come in the fourth quarter of close games. Players that make big shots in these situations are revered as being “clutch”, controlling their emotions to deliver under pressure. Those that fall short are “chokers” and their reputations can suffer. Maybe then we can hypothesize that fourth-quarter scoring in the modern NBA is a scarce commodity, and thus more valuable. But, that’s not the relationship we see for this sample. Before drawing any conclusions from these data, I would first caution that attempting to align player performance with a contract value in the future using a rule of thumb measure is too abstract for our purposes. When forming hypotheses, it’s best to reserve certainty for data that can be measured with precise mechanisms. Still, if we temporarily assume the sample data accurately captures the observed scoring phenomena and corresponding salary figures across the...
    Bloomberg Venezuelans are an asset, not a problem: Mac Margolis (Bloomberg) – Hunger, economic collapse, repression and covid-19: Venezuelans have experienced almost everything in the last year. For millions of them, a safe harbor in another Latin American country was the only way out. Armed fighting between security forces and guerrillas that forced at least 3,100 residents of the western state of Apure to flee across the border into Colombia in late March were just the latest example. Yet even these desperate escapades appear more complex as a continental backlash develops against the worst-hit diaspora in the Western Hemisphere. An estimated 5.4 million Venezuelans have left their homeland, 85% of whom landed in another country in Latin America or the Caribbean. They represent the world’s greatest humanitarian calamity after the war-torn Syria, but with a fraction of the aid and care. Venezuela’s refugee crisis has generated $ 1.3 billion in aid pledges, even as the Syrian refugee crisis has raised $ 19.9 billion, according to economist Dany Bahar, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution. The pandemic has struck by...

    Textile Design Industry, better known as Inditex, will be the protagonist this Wednesday in the market when publishing its annual results, corresponding to fiscal year 2020. A year undoubtedly marked by the Covid-19 pandemic, which has caused the closure of its stores for much of the year and an unprecedented impact on its income statement. However, the matrix of brands such as Zara, Pull & Bear, Massimo Dutti, Bershka, Stradivarius, Oysho, Zara Home and Uterqüe has managed to face the crisis through a plan that combines an aggressive growth of its online sales and a roll-back of its physical store network towards larger and more profitable establishments, which simultaneously function as e-commerce platforms. Thus, much more than its results for the fourth quarter and for the fiscal year as a whole, the market is interested in the evolution of five keys which are crucial in establishing your future valuation. The evolution of online sales, the profitability translated into your gross profit margin, the future forecasts that Pablo Isla can anticipate to investors, the inventory management and the structural cost...

    Target delivered another strong quarter during the pandemic, but even CEO Brian Cornell was caught off guard by what it saw after the holidays. Store traffic and sales typically slow for retailers after the spree of spending and gift-giving in November and December. Instead, the retail chief said sales picked up at Target in the first few weeks of January. "January was a really surprising month for me," Brian Cornell said in an interview with CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Tuesday. "I think if I do this for another 20 years, we're unlikely to see January comps grow at a rate of over 30%." Cornell said shoppers flocked to stores to redeem gift cards and freshen up their homes, wardrobes and kitchen pantries. He said customers were "shopping for newness." "We saw a great response to anything new in our assortment, from home to apparel to beauty," he said. That lifted the big-box retailer's fourth-quarter results, helping them to top Wall Street's expectations. He also credited the investments that Target had made and the trust it's earned from customers during...

    The nation's gross domestic product increased 4.1% in the fourth quarter, the Bureau of Economic Analysis reported Thursday. The fourth quarter GDP figure was revised upward from the previous estimate of 4%, because of upgrades to residential fixed investment, private inventory investment, and state and local government spending.

    Repsol’s profit improves in the fourth quarter and exceeds forecasts
    It all started against the Heat on Feb. 7, when RJ Barrett played just 19 minutes and was benched for the final 17. And that was before the Knicks acquired point guard Derrick Rose. In five of the past six games, Barrett has seen his minutes slide under 30 — a significant drop-off, since he was leading the league in playing time three weeks ago. The homely 107-89 loss at Orlando on Wednesday night became the most head-scratching one in the continuing reduction of Barrett’s role. The third pick in the 2019 draft was playing very well and had helped the Knicks get off to a double-digit, first-quarter lead. In the win over the Hawks on Monday, Barrett hit two giant, late-game 3-pointers. But Wednesday, as the Knicks tried to mount a rally in the fourth quarter, coach Tom Thibodeau ignored Barrett. He didn’t enter until minutes were left, and by then the Magic were up by 15 and it was all but over. Barrett finished with 15 points. Thibodeau explained the backcourt unit of rookie Immanuel Quickley and Alec...

    Neither team is ready to call it a season between the Las Vegas Raiders and Miami Dolphins. For those of you who fell asleep during the Las Vegas Raiders and Miami Dolphins game, it’s cool. You didn’t miss much. This time though, Fitzmagic sparkled his way to victory. Dolphins’ QB Tua Tagovailoa on Ryan Fitzpatrick, who made the no-look pass of the season: “They call him ‘Fitzmagic’ for a reason.” pic.twitter.com/npEfDfdk5T — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 27, 2020 Fitzpatrick finished 9-of-13 with 182 yards and a touchdown. His no-look connection to Hollins is the definition of magic, thus setting up the chance to win. On top of all that, when Gaskins crossed the goal line, guess who was the first person to congratulate Fitzpatrick? The kid himself. Fitzpatrick had Miami sitting at 3-3 when the team elected to go in favor of Tagovailoa. He didn’t complain. He didn’t question the move. Ultimately, he knew the reason he was brought in was to teach for the future, knowing his best days were in the past. Ryan Fitzpatrick with one...
    Bill Belichick put Cam Newton out of his misery Sunday while Jimmy Garoppolo was dominating his old team. Belichick benched Newton for the fourth quarter of the Patriots’ 33-6 Week 7 home loss to the 49ers. Jarrett Stidham took over at quarterback on the team’s first drive of the quarter with the 49ers up by 27 points. Before being benched, Newton completed 9 of 15 passes for 98 yards with three interceptions and a sack. Newton also had five rushes for 19 yards. Belichick confirmed after the Patriots’ loss that Newton will be New England’s starter in Week 8. MORE: Inside the Patriots’ three-game losing streak The Patriots struggled to move the ball against the 49ers’ injury-ravaged defense. There wasn’t a ton of running room for the Patriots’ backs, but the bigger issue was that Newton threw away drives before they could get started. His first interception came when he stepped up in the pocket and tried to throw on the run. A deflection near the line of scrimmage sent the ball into San Francisco linebacker Fred Warner’s arms for a pick....

    Getty Images Oil prices are expected to rise just slightly in the final quarter of the year, held back from further gains by a deep chill in global travel and a still healing economy. Analysts forecast the prices of Brent and West Texas Intermediate should rise to the low to mid-$40s per barrel, but they also see risks tilted toward another drop in oil prices. "If anything, they're vulnerable to falling into the low $30s. The oil market is taking Covid the hardest of all of the asset classes out there," said John Kilduff, partner with Again Capital. "Demand is just not coming back, especially for jet fuel." Oil prices have clawed back from a crushing decline earlier this year, as the global economy shut down. Oil futures prices were even temporarily negative, as the market reacted to huge oversupply and a big drop in global demand. WTI futures fell below $40 this week and settled at $38.71 Thursday, falling 3.9% amid worries about the coronavirus and reports of a rise in OPEC output. "It looks really bleak right now....

The Nasdaq and the S&P 500 have made new all-time highs since the coronavirus selloff occurred, but the Dow Jones Industrial Average has not. © TheStreet Can the Dow Make New Highs in the Fourth Quarter? The index has recovered a bulk of its losses from the first-quarter selloff, but not all. It's still 5.5% below its all-time high set in February. In early September, the Dow was just 1.25% below its highs. Load Error That lags both the Nasdaq and the S&P 500, which continue to trade above their pre-coronavirus highs. On the plus side though, the Dow continues to trade better than small-cap stocks, with the Russell 2000 still more than 11% below its prior 2020 high. As we enter the fourth quarter, investors are wondering if the Dow can find some momentum. While this quarter is likely to be...
    Ruth Bader Ginsburg to lie in repose, Breonna Taylor announcement, Beta still a threat: 5 things to know Wednesday Chain restaurants in bad financial shape Opinion: Small-cap stocks typically lose in the fourth quarter and this group of wealthy investors are to blame FA CENTER © Getty Images Now is not a good time to be actively investing in small-cap U.S. stocks. That’s because small-caps typically lag their larger counterparts during the fourth quarter. Take a look at the accompanying chart, which plots the average monthly return advantage that the smallest stocks have over the largest. (The exact definitions of these two hypothetical portfolios are provided on the website maintained by Dartmouth College professor Ken French.) Notice that the small-cap advantage is heavily concentrated in January, and then declines from February through the end of the year. By the fourth quarter, it not only has completely disappeared but actually become a disadvantage. Notice also that this tendency exists in U.S. election years. Load Error Is tax-selling the cause? To be sure, you shouldn’t bet on a stock-market...

EFE The Milwaukee bucks They are not having an easy series against Orlando Magic. Far from what was expected, the level shown in the playoffs by the “local” franchise in the Disney bubble is being optimal. So much so that he scored the first point of the tie and has been about to tie it at 2. But Giannis Antetokounmpo is still unstoppable (31 + 15 + 8) and has managed to put out the fire in time for the Wisconsin ones. A 21-2 run at the start of the last quarter was decisive.

    Napheesa Collier is developing a knack for owning the big moment. Solid but not exceptional through roughly 10 quarters of the Lynx’s first three games, after Thursday’s fourth quarter, she’s now largely responsible for both of the team’s victories. The reigning WNBA Rookie of the Year tallied 10 points and six rebounds — five offensive — in Thursday’s final frame to push Minnesota past Chicago, 83-81 in Bradenton, Florida. The Lynx entered the fourth quarter leading 57-54. Three of the team’s first four possessions of the quarter ended with Collier put-back buckets off offensive rebounds, as Minnesota’s advantage quickly grew to nine. Then late, with Chicago nipping at Minnesota’s heels, Collier delivered another put back on one possession, and hit two free-throws on the next to stretch the Lynx (2-1) lead back to five with under a minute to play. “I thought Phee really broke their backs,” Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve said. “Those loose balls, those extra possessions were the difference in the game.” Chicago (2-1) still had its chances late, but missed three shots in the final seven seconds,...
    VIDEO2:4502:45Tesla shares keep climbing, but a reversal could hit in fourth quarter: BarclaysStreet Signs Asia Tesla shares could start to see a reversal in the fourth quarter after a huge rally this year, as the "flaws in the growth story" begin to show, according to one major bear.  Barclays auto analyst Brian Johnson, who put a $300 price target on Tesla in February, questioned the outlook for the electric carmaker, despite the company posting second-quarter earnings that beat market expectations.  First, he said that while Tesla CEO Elon Musk has promised "industry-leading" margins, according to its earnings results released Wednesday, that is not likely to happen. "That's clearly not what he (Musk) is going to do, he is trying to do revenue growth," Johnson told CNBC's "Street Signs Asia." The analyst then went on to say that if sales of Tesla's Model 3 sedans produced in China were stripped out, revenue from its "Fremont factory actually appear to be down 30%." Finally, Johnson said that sales of the Model Y crossover SUV, which started being delivered to customers in March,...
    Tesla turned a profit of $104 million in the second quarter of 2020 despite shutting down its electric vehicle factory in Fremont, California, for roughly seven weeks because of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, Tesla has now been profitable for four straight quarters for the first time in company history — an elusive benchmark the company has long sought. But perhaps more importantly, Tesla says it has a “site selected” for its next Gigafactory in the US. The company is on track to receive several tax incentive packages from local authorities in Austin, Texas, though it has been in talks with Tulsa, Oklahoma. Wherever the factory lands, Tesla will use it to build the Cybertruck and more Model Y SUVs. “The next US Gigafactory site has been selected and preparations are underway,” the company says in its earnings statement. Tesla kept its finances in the black by selling 90,650 vehicles this past quarter even with that factory shutdown — an increase over its first quarter pace of 88,000 cars delivered but still below the company’s record of...
