View the original article to see embedded media.Unfortunately, we cannot all be Rams fans. The general managers of our favorite teams are not sitting on the edge of their office chairs monitoring the NFL rumor mill like a Bloomberg terminal, prepared to pounce on every discarded star and future Hall of Famer like a deranged day trader. We will not have a collection of stars to sort through on every play and, thus, the second half of the season feels a little bit mysterious. Some teams will get better, as we noted in a separate column yesterday. But some teams will inevitably get worse. It may not be “worse” in the sense that a team on course for the playoffs will miss the postseason. It could just mean that a team running smoothly now has a...

Midway through this elongated, 17-game season, we are left with some significant questions. If you would have told a fan five years ago about the Aaron Rodgers situation, Odell Beckham Jr.’s foray into midseason free agency, Urban Meyer’s strange drift into incompetence and the Raiders’ descent into chaos, one might call you an alarmist at best and a bad fiction writer at worst. That is our reality, though, as we stare out at the second half of this season and wonder what might happen next, given what we’ve already tried to digest. Fear not, though, as this is a post that brings good news. There are teams that get better in the second half every year, whether it be because of health, a coaching change, a scheme change or a beneficial schedule....
    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Jordyn Law recovered teammate Christian Anderson’s fumble at the goal line for an overtime touchdown and Army defeated Air Force 21-14 on Saturday. After Law’s game-saving recovery, the Black Knights (5-3) denied the Falcons (6-3) the end zone when Jabari Moore broke-up Haaziq Daniels’ fourth-down pass. The victory means Army can do no worse than a tie for the Commander-in-Chief’s trophy, which goes to the service academy with the best record in round-robin competition. Army will retain the prize whether it wins or loses against Navy in December as Air Force defeated the Midshipmen earlier this season. Army came in having won three of the past four trophies. Air Force tied the game on Matthew Depore’s second field goal of the game, a 30-yarder with 23 seconds left in regulation. They had reached the Army 11 before a 15-yard chop-block penalty stalled the drive. After a scoreless first half, Army took the second-half kickoff and with the help of a 39-yard pass from Tyhier Tyler to Tyrell Robinson, scored on Tyler’s 9-yard run. Air...

The Frenchman started in Italy alongside Scott McTominay, but was not at his brilliant best. 2Paul Scholes claimed Paul Pogba was lucky to stay on the field for the second half against AtalantaCredit: BT Sport 2Paul Pogba against AtalantaCredit: Getty Having given the ball away several times and being guilty of some wayward passing, Pogba had a 45 minutes to forget. And nobody knows that more than Old Trafford legend Scholes, one of the finest midfielders in Premier League history. He said on BT Sport: "United have been sloppy at times. "There have been a lot of mistakes in that half, I don't think Paul Pogba will be particularly enthralled by his performance. "He's given the ball away a lot and that goal has maybe made him survive into the second half." United were level at half time after Josip Ilicic's opener was cancelled out by Cristiano Ronaldo.

Texas would be a Big 12 contender if it could hold on to a lead in the second half. The Longhorns blew a big second-half lead for the third game in a row on Saturday in a 31-24 loss to No. 16 Baylor in Waco. The loss means Texas’ Big 12 title hopes are effectively over and Baylor is still in the thick of the mix for a spot in the conference title game. Texas (4-4) took a 21-10 lead with 8:49 to go in the third quarter after a 14-play drive to start the second half. But Baylor responded with a touchdown just four minutes later and took the lead with 12:48 to go in the game after a 14-play drive. Baylor (7-1) made it 21 consecutive points after Texas went for a fake punt facing 4th and 11 at midfield. The fake gained just two yards and Baylor...
    MANCHESTER UNITED earned three much needed points with a hard-fought win against Spurs at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knew that anything but a win tonight would add to the mountain of pressure already piling on top of him after last Sunday's 5-0 defeat to Liverpool. 3Man Utd won their first league game in their last four under Solskjaer, easing the pressure on the NorwegianCredit: AP And his side reacted in exactly the way he would have liked with a sturdy defensive performance and showed a real cutting edge in attack. An incredible volley from Cristiano Ronaldo gave Man Utd the lead in the first half and the Portuguese then provided the assist for Edinson Cavani's goal in the second period. Marcus Rashford sealed the victory late on and suddenly the black cloud hovering over Old Trafford seems a little bit less dark, with Utd climbing back up to fifth.

    The Earthquakes scored four goals after halftime — from four different players — to bolster their faint playoff hopes with a home win Wednesday night over Austin FC. Javier “Chofis” Lopez scored two minutes after the break and Benjamin Kikanovic added another in the 53rd minute before all-time MLS goals leader Chris Wondolowski scored his third of the season to make it a 3-0 lead before the 60th minute. Carlos Fierro scored the final goal of the game on a header and celebrated by stuffing the ball under his jersey and giving “birth” to the ball under the careful watch of Wondolowski and Paul Marie. Chofis’ goal was his team-leading 12th of the season. The Quakes (9-12-9, 36 points) had lost three in a row coming into tonight’s game against Austin FC (7-4-19, 25 points). They next play the Vancouver Whitecaps (11-10-9, 43 points) on Saturday at 7 p.m. at PayPal Park.

    Things have been going far too smoothly for Thomas Tuchel and Chelsea since the German boss took over from Frank Lampard last January. He has injected a great team spirit and new tactical ideas and has often been referred to as a tactical genius, which he has proven to be at times. 1Chelsea chief Thomas Tuchel saw another huge test of his progress since taking over in JanuaryCredit: PA However, there are a few things that Tuchel might need to start seriously addressing at training, because cracks are starting to appear for Chelsea after having lost their last two games. Both games were very different, and Tuchel lined up in different formations for them both, using 3-5-2 against Manchester City, and then starting 3-4-3 against Juventus only to revert to a 3-5-2 in the second half after a poor first half. This gives you fluidity, but it doesn't give you stability. It's good to have a few formations you can try and different options to use, but there has been elements of confusion and the players haven't been able...
    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers’ new-look offense overcame a slow start, Ulysees Gilbert returned a blocked punt 9 yards for a touchdown and Pittsburgh rallied to a season-opening 23-16 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Down 10-0, the Steelers scored on each of their first four possessions of the second half, with Roethlisberger putting Pittsburgh ahead for good by lobbing a 5-yard touchdown pass to Dionte Johnson in the left corner of the end zone.

    MANCHESTER UNITED staged a dramatic smash and grab at Molineux as Mason Greenwood nicked a late winner against Wolves. David De Gea's earlier double save gave the Reds the platform to go on and win while Fred's performance, once again, left a lot to be desired. 7David De Gea's super-save was priceless as Man Utd nicked a late win at WolvesCredit: Reuters 7Fred did little to thwart Wolves' dangerous looking counter-attacksCredit: EPA United survived an early scare as Fred gifted Wolves possession on the break but Francisco Trincão's effort was cleared on the line by Aaron Wan-Bissaka. It was a high-energy first-half in which the Reds struggled to deal with Adama Traroe but both sides generally lacked the quality to to break the deadlock. Wolves looked the most dangerous again after the break and should have taken the lead through Romain Saiss. But De Gea's heroics thwarted the defender and that left United in with a chance. And Greenwood secured the fortunate win with an equally fortunate effort as he fired a ball across the box and saw Sa...

    A massive California wildfire continued to surge Monday, burning nearly half a million acres and forcing thousands from their homes, becoming the second largest fire in state history. The Dixie Fire has burned 489,287 acres in northern California with only 21% contained, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire).

    PamelaJoeMcFarlane | E+ | Getty Images The first half of 2021 was very different than the volatile first six months of 2020. To that point, the Standard & Poor's 500 Index returned 15% in the first half of this year — healthy growth in just about any full year. Yet, with the potential for inflation to jam the gears of growth — fueled by trillions of dollars in past and potentially future stimulus spending — there are concerns about how investors should adjust their portfolios for the second half of 2021. Now is the time to focus on managing risk by reviewing what many investors appear to be ignoring: diversification. To be sure, there are reasons to believe that diversified portfolios can do well, even with the uncertainty of inflation and rising interest rates. Admittedly, there is a downside to diversification, which is if stocks continue to post record gains, you will probably make less money.  However, some exposure to a mix of assets such as non-U.S. dollar denominated stocks, value stocks, corporate bonds and foreign bonds could be very...

    Residential single family homes construction by KB Home are shown under construction in the community of Valley Center, California, U.S. June 3, 2021.Mike Blake | Reuters The U.S. economy is expected to have grown at the strongest pace of the year, but it could have been even more rapid were it not for supply chain disruptions and a shortage of workers. According to Dow Jones, economists expect U.S. gross domestic product grew at an annual rate of 8.4% after growing by 6.4% in the first quarter. That estimate is lower than the more than 10% that had been expected earlier in the year. GDP will be released Thursday at 8:30 a.m. ET. "The big story remains the consumer. It looks like real consumer spending was up about 10% in the second quarter and some of that relates to the ongoing boost from the rebate checks," said Amherst Pierpont chief economist Stephen Stanley. Stanley said he expects growth of 8.7% for the second quarter. "That's not indicative of where demand was. There was a point in time where I had as...

"IPO-bound companies wanting to take advantage of favorable market sentiment and high liquidity were keen to complete their transactions before an expected mid-year slow-down," Paul Go, global IPO leader at EY, said in the report.

    In this article @GC.1 GLD VIDEO1:5901:59Commodities are on fire this year — What this ETF analyst sees aheadETF EdgeGold could see a resurgence in the second half, said one market analyst. The metal has had a rough go of it in 2021, down nearly 5% year to date as investors rotate out of the safe haven trade into riskier assets. Gold prices hit a one-week low on Wednesday, though they're up almost 2% in July. The rotation also hit exchange-traded funds, with SPDR Gold Shares (GLD), the largest ETF in the world backed by physical gold, seeing $7 billion in redemptions so far this year, ETF Trends CEO Tom Lydon told CNBC on Monday. The redemption process helps keep an ETF's trading price in line with its underlying net asset value when it is trading at a discount to its NAV. But rising inflation could be setting gold up for a rebound, Lydon said in an interview on "ETF Edge." "Historically, when you look at inflationary times, gold tends to be a second-half player," said Lydon, also CEO of...
    Shoppers carry bags of purchased merchandise at the King of Prussia Mall, in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, December 8, 2018.Mark Makela | Reuters Retailers in the U.S. will spend $223 billion more in the second half of 2021 than in the same period in 2020, according to a Salesforce forecast released Tuesday. The amount represents a 62% increase from last year. It's comprised of an additional $12 billion spent with suppliers, $48 billion more in wage expenses and $163 billion extra in logistics costs. Salesforce VP and GM of Retail Rob Garf said consumers, in turn, should expect higher prices. "Retailers will certainly take on some of the burden and consumers are going to feel it as well, but given the significant increase across the board from manufacturing to logistics to labor, it can't be all passed on to the consumer," he told CNBC. "What we have found through the first half of the year though, even with inflation and the increase in the cost of goods sold, partly being pushed off to the consumer, we are all a willing...
    On April 9, a nascent day of the 2021 baseball season, the venerable baseball stat repository Fangraphs estimated that the San Francisco Giants had a 3.4 percent chance of making the postseason. A few months later, as baseball enters its post-All-Star-Game home stretch, the Giants have the best record in baseball. So much for that algorithm. No one saw this kind of season coming from the Giants. Even the Giants coaches and players who talked a big game in spring training deep-down didn’t expect this. But it’s here. The only question now is how far the Giants can take it. What should we expect from San Francisco in the final 73 games? I figure we break it down using those same Fangraphs probabilities. Making the playoffs: 90.9 percent (Karl Mondon/Bay Area News Group)  With a start this strong, the Giants need to make the postseason. There are no two ways about it. There will be trials and tribulations — the Giants’ schedule for the first three weeks of the second half is brutal...
    Yankees’ Aaron Judge had an eventful night in the All-Star Game; declares himself ready for second half Andres Chavez July 14, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge had an eventful All-Star Game on Tuesday night. It was one of his goals: put on a show for the fans that voted him as one of the best players in the American League. And he delivered. Judge, who has carried the Yankees offensively this season, was the sparkplug of the American League offense in a game they ended up winning 5-2. Judge took a walk in the second inning to lead off things, raced to third base on a double by Rafael Devers, and then scored the first run of the night on an infield single by Toronto Blue Jays’ second baseman Marcus Semien.

    In this article ABNB EXPE VIDEO2:3902:39Trading Nation: Airbnb gets a double upgrade — Two traders debate the callTrading NationAirbnb received a rare double upgrade to a buy rating from Gordon Haskett this week. The firm sees improving trends, particularly in Europe, as a boon for the vacation-rental stock. But Airbnb has languished this year in comparison to fast growing challenger Expedia, which owns competitor VRBO. Airbnb stock has fallen 2% in 2021, while Expedia is up 22%. Airbnb's stock may have been a victim of a rotation away from high-priced growth stocks, according to Gina Sanchez, chief market strategist at Lido Advisors and CEO of Chantico Global. "It just faced the mother of all stress tests, and it is offering growth, and therefore isn't necessarily value," Sanchez told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Tuesday. "The trade for the first half of this year was growth at a reasonable price. That's what Expedia promised."

Nearly 70% of the respondents said value stocks will do better than their growth counterparts in the next quarter.Zoom In IconArrows pointing outwardsAfter an impressive rebound from pandemic lows, the rally in value shares took a pause as the Federal Reserve's hawkish policy pivot and inflationary pressures made investors reassess the outlook for economic growth.

The market's gains, however, are not expected to be as robust as in the first half, when indexes jumped by double digits and set multiple all-time highs. Strategists caution there are risks of a pullback, though they have been warning of that for awhile, and the market has continued to power higher. "Strong growth, strong earnings, low interest rates, a bond market that's been lulled to sleep. The bond yields aren't really reacting to inflation news," Bank of America head of global economic research Ethan Harris said. "[Fed Chairman Jerome] Powell has done a good job of calming the waves in the bond market, so this is Goldilocks for equities." But there are a few risks strategists are watching out for in the latter half 2021. One is the potential for choppy trading when the Federal Reserve begins to discuss slowing...
    Consumer confidence leaps in June and is almost back to pre-pandemic peak as Covid wanes in U.S. Stocks mostly higher as S&P 500 edges further into record territory The 2021 Fantasy baseball season saw one of its biggest prospects called up last week when Wander Franco made his debut for the Rays. He already has a home run and stolen base to his name, and although he hasn't been perfect so far, we're optimistic he won't follow the same path as Jared Kelenic. In addition to big prospect call ups, baseball is going through the early aftermath of the MLB's crackdown on pitchers using foreign substances. Spin rates are down everywhere and Gerrit Cole is no longer the ace you were banking on. © Provided by CBS Sports To kick off each week of the season, I'll be reaching out to Fantasy Baseball Today's Chris Towers, Scott White and Frank Stampfl to ask them a few big questions that can hopefully help lead to actionable advice.

    Traders on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.Source: NYSE The monthly jobs report is the highlight in the coming week, as June winds down and markets start the second half of the year. Economists are expecting about 700,000 jobs, better than the 559,000 in May but below the forecasts of several months ago that payroll creation would be rolling along with monthly gains of 1 million or more. The report is a key read on the labor market, which has replaced lost jobs more slowly than expected as companies complain about worker shortages and difficulty finding help. But it is also being watched as a gauge on how sticky the current jump in inflation might be. Rising wages are one thing to watch but also worker scarcity, since that can make goods and services more expensive. Stocks have turned in a mixed performance for the month of June so far. The S&P 500 was up 1.8% as of Friday for the month, and up 7.7% in the second quarter for a 15.5% year to date gain. The Nasdaq...

Andrew Tilton, chief Asia economist at the bank, said the situation could improve in the second half of 2021.

"Our analysts believe we're probably in the worst period of that right now. That is, we're seeing the biggest disruption downstream (in) industries like auto right now and that will gradually ease over the back half of the year," Tilton said. The world has been grappling with a chip shortage that has hit the production of household electronics, including everything from toasters to washing machines.

Those shortages will likely continue for a bit longer, according to Jim Ryan, president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment. But stock should pick up in the second half of the year, he says.
