Opinion: Chipotle’s disastrous 2015: What investors need to know

Every year, it seems, Wall Street needs to learn the same lessons. Among them: Don’t expand a business too quickly. Don’t encourage management to be too aggressive. Don’t pay too much for a stock, even a “growth” stock.

And above all: The next time you feel the urge to buy a stock because everyone loves it, you “have to own” it, and it “can’t fail,” lie down until the feeling passes.

All of which brings us to the sorry story of Chipotle Mexican Grill CMG, -0.32% , that darling of Wall Street, whose stock took a tumble in 2015 —down 28% for the year as of Dec. 28.

The burrito chain has been hit by outbreaks of e.coli and norovirus that sickened some customers and caused a public relations disaster. Chipotle and the Center for Disease Control are both investigating the causes of the outbreaks. More



U.S. goods trade deficit widens less than expected in November
WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — The U.S. goods trade deficit widened in November to a three-month high, as exports declined more than imports, the Commerce Department said Tuesday.

After narrowing for two months, the trade gap widened 3.6% in November to $60.5 billion to the largest deficit since August. But the deficit was smaller than the MarketWatch-compiled forecast of $61.9 billion. More

Why Congress Will Get Even Less Done in 2016

Despite a burst of legislation from Congress in the last few months of 2015, several key issues were left unresolved ahead of what promises to be far less productive 2016 in Washington.

Lawmakers began a furious downhill slalom of work back in September, reaching deals with the Obama administration on a $1.1 trillion bill to fund the government through next September, a $650 billion package of tax cuts and a five-year highway measure. More



How Amazon has clouded Wall Street’s vision

Amazon.com’s day as a profit machine has finally arrived, or so many on Wall Street seem to believe.

Investing in the e-commerce giant has long been an act of faith. Over the past decade, Amazon’s annual sales have grown more than tenfold to nearly $90 billion in 2014, while earnings have been meager and sporadic. Nevertheless, investors have remained resolute in their belief of significant profits just around the corner. Amazon shares have traded at an average 110 times forward earnings over the past decade.

Home Prices in 20 U.S. Cities Rose at a Faster Pace in October

Home values in 20 U.S. cities rose at a faster pace in the year ended October as lean inventories of available properties combined with steadily improving demand.

Rethink: A Business Manifesto for Cutting Costs and Boosting Innovation
It's a totally human condition, a trap that ensnares virtually everyone. Just as when we tie a route to a destination so much so that when someone else takes a different route "why are we going this way?" it usually doesn't matter "how" you get there. This "how" trap also takes place at work, people intertwine "how" they do their job with the outcome of "what" they are doing that sometimes obvious decisions are masked, and missed.
