It’s too early to be speculating in the cruise stocks

CNBC’s Jim Cramer advised investors Tuesday to hold off on buying shares of cruise line operators, citing the continued uncertainty during the coronavirus pandemic.

“It’s still too soon to speculate in the cruise stocks. Their domestic ships won’t start sailing again until December at the earliest, and I think there’s a good chance that gets postponed again,” the “Mad Money” host said.

“If you really want cruise exposure, I say be patient, because days like today make me think you’ll get better buying opportunities,” added Cramer, following a Tuesday trading session in which the three major operators all saw their stocks get hammered.

Driving the sell-off was news that Royal Caribbean was raising fresh capital, Cramer said. The company announced it was issuing $500 million worth of stock in a secondary offering and $500 million in senior convertible notes.

Royal Caribbean’s stock in turn fell 13.2% during Tuesday’s session, closing

Transfer news: West Ham and Leeds among teams who could complete deals by Friday | Football | Sport

More than £1billion has already been spent by top-flight clubs this summer. There are, however, still a number of teams in the market for new additions before the domestic window closes. And here are five Championship players who could make the move to a Premier League side before Friday’s deadline.

Said Benrahma (Brentford)

Few shone as brightly as Benrahma in the Championship last term, with the Algerian scoring 17 and assisting nine in 48 appearances for Brentford. 

Ultimately, the Bees fell just short of clinching promotion to the Premier League, losing the play-off final to Fulham, but that hasn’t stopped Benrahma from being linked to top flight clubs this summer.

Most recently, West Ham have taken an interest in the 25-year-old, tabling an offer worth an initial £25 million plus £5 million in add-ons for Benrahma. 

The deal has, however, run into complications (per the Guardian), meaning this transfer

You Can Spend Thanksgiving Privately At These Hotels

Going out for Thanksgiving is always a popular option rather than having one family member take on the responsibility of putting on the dinner. A weekend at a hotel or resort is also popular right now given the months spent in quarantine by many families without a break. So it’s not surprising that hotels have come forward with options to spend Thanksgiving together but away from other guests.

Inn at Perry Cabin, located on Maryland’s Eastern Shore in the extremely quaint town of St. Michaels, converted its greenhouses, now known simply as the Houses, into glassed in dining units set to be open

Book questions how 2 Africans businessmen died in Springfield hotel


Two South African men, on a trip to ride motorcycles along historic Route 66, were found dead in 2015 in separate rooms at a Springfield hotel.

How they died was not immediately apparent.

But six weeks later, the Springfield Police Department announced the mystery had been solved after testing from the CDC: the two men — Gerrit Strydom, 45, and James Bethel, 44 — died from cerebral malaria.

It seemed the two men must have been bitten by infected mosquitoes during a fishing trip back in Africa, fallen ill and died after traveling to Springfield.

Case closed. Or at least, that’s how it appeared.

But when the News-Leader requested the full investigative report in the case last month, the response from a police department spokeswoman was that the case is still considered open five years later — and the
