Lots of Green in Irish Whiskey, New Homes and the Cloud
There was a lot of green Beyond Wall Street this week and not just in St. Patrick's Day parades across the country. A lot of those marchers celebrated with Irish whiskey, now the fastest growing whiskey category in the US, up 460% since 2002. It was also busy in the cloud with a slew of new cloud-based tech companies going public, as well as Adobe Systems beating Wall Street earnings estimates. Finally, KB Home reported a quarterly profit after losing money last year, boding well for the Spring selling season.
