Your Funds: How to think when a favorite stock is in the news | Column

Still, it’s hard to ignore that ExxonMobil has been choking amid the mostly strong market conditions of the past decade. Shares trading for more than $100 six years ago sell for less than $50 today.

Even factoring dividends and total return into the picture, ExxonMobil has badly lagged the Dow; the annualized average spread is more than 20 percentage points.

That said, if history is a precursor, being dumped by the Dow is good news for Exxon-Mobil shareholders. Several studies have shown that issues kicked out of the major indices outperform the stocks that replace them.

The last time three stocks were swapped out of the Dow was when Bank of America, Hewlett-Packard and Alcoa were dropped for Goldman Sachs, Visa and Nike. While the replacements had nice gains in their first year in the Dow, the vanquished stocks were rock stars; BofA gained 18%, HP jumped 72% and Alcoa

Personal motivations drove Red Sox to Thursday victory – News –

The Red Sox have 15 games left in this 2020 season, and it’s worth exploring the motivations behind recent performances by certain players.

Rafael Devers, Bobby Dalbec and Mike Kickham were the standouts Thursday night at Tropicana Field. Devers and Dalbec both homered while Kickham enjoyed his best outing since July 2013.

The worst team in the American League East beat the best. Boston squeezed out a 4-3 victory, its fourth win in its last six games.

Devers is on a four-game hitting streak thanks to two singles and a two-run homer. He’s pounded out six extra-base hits in that span and has 16 in his last 26 games. Devers managed just six extra-base hits through his first 20 games of this lost season.

“I’m just coming into work every single day like I’m supposed to and just putting in the work and trying to get better and better,” Devers

PARIS (Reuters) – French business confidence rebounded in August to its highest since France went into a coronavirus lockdown despite a resurgence of new infections, a survey showed on Thursday.

INSEE, the official statistics agency, said its monthly business sentiment index rose to 91 from 84, reaching its highest since March, when midway through the month the government put France under one of the strictest lockdowns in Europe.

Business confidence has rebounded since the government began lifting the lockdown on May 11 as companies struggled to respond to pent-up demand from clients.

INSEE said that the survey showed business’ leaders personal outlooks had eased in August despite the overall improvement, suggesting that much of the recovery in activity had already run its course.

“The speed of the catch-up could as a result slow in the coming months,” INSEE said in a note accompanying the survey.

By Michael Nienaber and Rene Wagner

BERLIN (Reuters) – German business morale improved more than expected in August as both manufacturing and services picked up steam, a survey showed on Tuesday, boosting hopes that Europe’s largest economy is set for a strong recovery following the massive coronavirus shock.

The Ifo institute said its business climate index rose to 92.6 from a downwardly revised 90.4 in July. This was the fourth monthly increase in a row and came in better than economists’ expectations for 92.2.

Ifo economist Klaus Wohlrabe said he expected the economy to grow by almost 7% on the quarter in the July-September period after it posted a record plunge of 9.7% in the previous three months at the height of the pandemic.

“The German economy is on the road to recovery,” Ifo President Clemens Fuest said in a statement, adding that firms assessed their current business situation much
