Molson Coors (which makes Allegiant Stadium’s official domestic beer, Coors Light, as well as its official craft beer, Hop Valley, and official hard seltzer, Vizzy), is doing their part to support the stadium’s sustainability goals, as well as their own.

The year 2020 has been a unique challenge for the world. The higher education sector was not immune to virus disruption, with teaching, research, and day-to-day operations pivoting quickly to reach some form of stability. Whatever tomorrow’s world may look like, one thing is already clear to us: the pandemic and its aftermath are a catalyst for digitalization. 

The digital imperative at universities has increased dramatically. As we emerge from this crisis and evolve, we need to recognise the lessons learned, embrace the positive changes we’ve seen, and reimagine the next normal. This journey is best taken together, which is why we are seeking fellow change agents to join us as a member of the Higher Education Advisory Council (HEAC). Nominations are open now through December 14.

For investors in bakery chain Greggs (LSE: GRG), November has been as sweet as one of the company’s cakes. The Greggs share price has had a weak 2020. But it rallied 30{429fc2506e610357e12b2a5665db82631200a2e00b3a1d8839077d76f18e2e8b} in the past month. Vaccine hopes lifted the market broadly. They definitely helped to boost the bakery chain. There are hopes that busier shopping areas and less home-working will restore demand for the purveyor of sausage rolls and sandwiches.

The share price rise has been welcome. However, I think the outlook remains challenging for the company. After their recent price rise, I would not buy shares in Greggs.

The retail environment remains extremely challenging

Investors who were around in 2009 might be having déjà vu this year.

That’s because the S&P 500’s run so far in 2020 has eerily tracked the market’s path in 2009, with similar dips and recoveries, strategists have pointed out. Randy Frederick, Charles Schwab’s vice president of trading and derivatives, is one such prognosticator who has long highlighted the roadmap’s accuracy this year—and even he is a little surprised.

“Amazingly, it never really deviated for more than just a few days,” Frederick tells Fortune. “I always expected it eventually to break down but it frankly just never did.”

What’s more, with that pattern having continued “a lot longer than I thought it would,” Frederick says, he believes “it’s pretty late in the game to think it’s going … Read more
