100 High Performance Small Cap Stocks

By Hank Tucker, Antoine Gara and Eliza Haverstock

Ask just about any investor from Silicon Valley to Wall Street and they will tell you: We’re living in the age of the mega-corporation. Trillion-dollar mega cap quasi-monopolies like Google, Apple and Amazon are pushing into everything from autonomous driving and entertainment to financial services and healthcare. And judging from their stock prices, the bigger these companies get, the more Wall Street applauds.

But being small, specialized and great—a hedgehog among foxes—is still a recipe for success, especially in a recovering economy.

It is the authenticator of millions of memorabilia items, like Mike Trout’s rookie card, Ted Williams’ autograph and 19th-century Morgan silver dollars. In the collectibles market, the Santa Ana, California-based

$500,000 Value With $9 Trillion Market Cap Possible, Winklevoss Twins Say

KEY POINTS

  • Bitcoin is inching closer to its perceived all-time high of $20,000
  • The Winklevoss twins say the current price is a “buy opportunity”
  • The early Bitcoin investors are not concerned with regulation headwinds

As Bitcoin inches its way closer to $20,000, early Bitcoin investors Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss say the benchmark cryptocurrency can overtake gold’s market capitalization within the next decade.

Bitcoin is gold 2.0 and hence, it will soon disrupt gold, Tyler told CNBC in a recent interview. For this to happen, Bitcoin needs to have a market cap of $9 trillion and its price should hit $500,000, he added.

“So at $18,000 per BTC, it’s a hold,” Tyler noted. “Hold” refers to not selling the cryptocurrency even at the current price point. “If you don’t have any, it’s a buy opportunity because we think there’s a 25x from here.”

Bitcoin closed Monday at $19,695 on Coinbase. Price

If you’re a Comcast customer, the internet may soon feel less wide-open.

On Tuesday, the nation’s largest internet provider announced that, starting Jan. 1, it would extend its 1.2 terabyte data cap to previously-exempt service areas – meaning once you hit that limit, you’ll have to pay more to use more. 

After a three-month grace period, this move will leave residential subscribers in 14 states from West Virginia to Maine, plus the District of Columbia, facing surcharges of up to $100 for exceeding that limit.

“We’re aligning our Northeast markets with the data plan that the rest of the country has had for several years, and 95 percent of our customers are not impacted by it even with the increased usage during the pandemic,” spokesman Joel Shadle said

Comcast to cap data use for Xfinity home internet service

GM will recall 7 million pickups over potentially faulty air bags

General Motors will recall about 7 million big pickup trucks and SUVs worldwide to replace potentially dangerous Takata air bag inflators. The announcement came Monday after the US government told the automaker it had to recall 6 million of the vehicles in the United States. GM says it will not fight the decision, even though it believes the vehicles are safe. It will cost the company an estimated $1.2 billion, about one third of its net income so far this year. The automaker had petitioned the agency four times since 2016 to avoid recalls, contending the air bag inflator canisters have been safe on the road and in testing. But the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday denied the petitions, saying the inflators still run the risk of exploding. Exploding Takata inflators caused the largest series

Comcast to impose home internet data cap of 1.2TB in more than a dozen US states next year

Next year, Comcast plans to charge home internet customers in northeastern US states for going over 1.2TB of data in a month — a cap that’s already in effect for customers on non-unlimited plans in other parts of the country.

In January and February, Comcast will give its Xfinity customers not on an unlimited plan a “credit” for any data usage charges over 1.2TB during those months to ease them into the new limits. Then, starting in March, non-unlimited customers who exceed 1.2TB in a month will be charged $10 per 50GB of data, for a maximum of $100.

Customers who go over the limit will get one “courtesy” credit per 12 months, so if you go over 1.2TB in March, you get a grace period for April. If you go over again in May, you’ll pay $10 for each block of 50GB up to the $100 max. Customers
