Politics These are the 15 best U.S. tech companies to work for in 2019, according to Glassdoor – TechCrunch #business #news

Politics It’s been quite the tumultuous year in the tech industry, most notably for companies like Facebook. Google, Tesla and Salesforce. And, based on Glassdoor’s latest ranking of the best companies to work for — in addition to employee protests and walkouts — it’s clear that employees are paying attention. Unsurprisingly, Facebook is no longer ranked as the top large company to work for in the United States. Following scandal after Scandal, employee sentiment at Facebook decreased from an average 4.6 rating in Q1 2018 to 4.3 in Q4. Though,…

Politics Pot companies still working out the supply kinks to meet strong Canadian demand #business #news

Politics Within days of Canada’s legalization of adult recreational use of marijuana, the country’s largest pot producers had shipped far less than 1% of the pot the government has forecast Canadians will spend on cannabis in the quarter.

With Statistics Canada estimates of sales hitting…

Politics Cramer’s game plan: Companies with fortunes tied to China or the Fed are ‘guilty until proven innocent’ #business #news

Politics The upcoming week of earnings reports may be the “toughest of all,” CNBC’s Jim Cramer warned after Friday’s trading produced “the most treacherous up day” he’d seen in years. “We have more blowups in high-growth stocks, more disappointment in tech, more sadness in health care, and they’re offset by just a fantastic pair of rallies in Procter & Gamble and PayPal,” the “Mad Money” host said. And strong earnings reports aren’t the only things working in investors’ favor, Cramer said. “It’s the companies that can’t be crushed by the…

Politics Companies are sticking to a practice that Warren Buffett and other business titans warn is damaging the economy

Politics REUTERS/Fred Prouser Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett has long decried Wall Street’s habit of providing quarterly earnings guidance. But last year, S&P 500 companies issued forward guidance at the highest rate since 2008, according to a report by S&P Global Market Intelligence. Executives have made fewer forecasts this year amid more calls to do away with the practice. Warren Buffett has long said that short-termism is bad for companies, but many didn’t seem to concur last year. Companies on the S&P 500 issued quarterly earnings guidance 444 times in…
