Nearly every day of my adult life, I have seen one or more people carrying around a cup of brand-name coffee. Nearly every time, I almost choked to death on my own laughter.
Now, those same folks will have the opportunity to entertain the frugal half of America by purchasing overpriced juice to go along with their overpriced coffee.

Something strange happened last month, when Apple (AAPL) reported its quarterly earnings: They fell short of Wall Street's expectations. That has rarely happened in recent years, and the stock sank on the news, down about 7% initially. The episode was a good reminder that many companies have set us up to expect them to beat expectations -- and that bad things can happen when they don't.
The technology realm includes many frequent exceeders. For example:
Betting against the stock was finally allowed to begin this week, and traders have jumped in with enthusiasm.
There is strong demand to borrow the stock and bet against it, Bloomberg reports. Shorts like to sell borrowed stock, expecting to profit by buying the shares back when the price drops.

Numerologists say Nov. 11 is a lucky day. If that's the case, these 11 companies just might do the trick for investors.
By Frank Byrt, TheStreet
Numerologists say Friday is a lucky day, given the "11/11/11" date. Superstitious investors who have come to believe that traditional fundamental analysis methods are haywire in the seesawing marketplace may want to consider promising stocks with beaten-down prices of under $11.
Small-cap stocks, which typically include those trading for less than $11, are down 5.2% this year, compared with the large-cap bellwether S&P 500 ($INX) 0.6% decline. But the small-cappers show signs of having bottomed, as they are up 9.7% in the past month and 5.4% over 13 weeks, according to Morningstar.
These stocks show favorable chart patterns and are close to staging upside breakouts.

Stocks have had a fairly choppy week, which makes the weekly close more important. A higher weekly close will be a positive sign, and the very strong action in crude oil on Thursday is a bullish signal for stocks.
As discussed previously, crude oil futures often break up or down ahead of the stock market. Wednesday's heavy selling in stocks increased the possibility of a deeper stock market correction, and while crude oil was also lower, it made new rally highs on Thursday.

This biotechnology stock has the brightest growth prospects in Standard &Poor's large-cap biotech universe.
By Steven Silver, Standard & Poor's The Outlook
S&P Capital IQ considers Celgene (CELG) one of the biotechnology stocks best positioned for long-term growth, with solid core product growth, an advancing new product pipeline, and a strong financial position.
We expect Celgene to deliver earnings growth at a compound annual rate of 21% from 2010 through 2013, driven by expanding sales of its key cancer drug Revlimid. This figure represents the brightest growth prospects we see in the large-cap biotech industry.
We also believe that the positive resolution to a European review of the drug’s safety will further improve investor sentiment on the shares.
Celgene develops and markets pharmaceuticals to treat cancer, immunological, and inflammatory disorders.
The movement is facing winter, an increasingly crowded news environment and an inability to directly affect the high-paid CEOs and bankers it's targeting.
By Peter Leeds, guest columnist
The faster anything rises, generally the faster it falls. Occupy Wall Street may be another example of this, as media coverage, social media activity, and activist numbers have all started dropping off. This is only expected to continue, especially with the onset of winter.
According to Google Trends, searches for Occupy Wall Street have fallen by 66% from their October 15th peak to November 11th. This is reinforced further by the Pew Research Center's weekly news index, which shows "Occupy Wall Street" dropping from 10% of total news coverage across their network on October 1st, to where it sits currently at less than 4%.

By Peter Cohan, InvestorPlace
In an economy that's hardly booming, people quickly defer to TV as a cheap entertainment option. But with a glut of options, any entertainment company worth its airwaves has to produce compelling content to snag a big share of those viewers.
Disney Co. (DIS) is one entertainment company that must be hitting that mark, given its blowout earnings report Thursday.
