American Dirt was too big to fail

"American Dirt is #1 on the New York Times bestseller list," writes Angeline Rodriguez, concerning the novel whose celebrity endorsements and success was brute-forced by a marketing campaign and completely immune to the backlash it received as a white fantasy of latino life. "It was never going to be anything less." The massive institutional support behind the book essentially guarantees it. From the moment the novel sold for a much-touted seven figures in a nine-way auction, the hit-making mach...

But the awards loom large in Taylor Swift: Miss Americana, the much-anticipated documentary (which premiered last week at Sundance and will hit Netflix on Friday, Jan. 31) that traces her life in the years that followed.

Apple's stock has doubled in the last year. Here's why a longtime investor says it's not time to sell. (AAPL)

Apple's stock has essentially doubled in the last year, giving it a price-to-earnings valuation at the high-end of its recent range. But that doesn't mean it's overpriced, said Dan Morgan, a senior portfolio manager with Synovus Trust. Apple's stock sold off in late 2018 and early 2019 after its sales plunged in China and overall, but its overall business has stabilized and certain businesses are showing strong growth.
