Uncertainty. It's been the word of the week. No, the word of the year. Okay, at least the word of the election, and amid a day with lackluster catalysts (see any $50 billion deal announcements today?) it was the word that kept U.S. markets and investors skittish. It's uncertainty over the election and OPEC, and a host of other issues like drug pricing, that caused the S&P 500 to fall for the sixth consecutive session.
So, while investors watched the ever-tightening presidential race and the commodities markets (oil fell again today as folks questioned whether OPEC would actually agree to a production cap at month's end) TheStreet and its various properties were hard at work digging up ideas to help investors make money even during such turmoil.
Uncertainty is still the name of the investing game at least for the foreseeable future and TheStreet is here to help you weed through it and make smart investment decisions. Here are today's highlights:
