    Corn

    Monsanto stock hit an all-time high Tuesday going into earnings. Turns out earnings reflected a fantastic 2007. Sales hit a record $8.5 billion.

    Is there no end in sight for Google and its shares?

  • Creativity -- It Takes Guts Monday, 8 Oct 2007 | 9:40 AM ET

    It's funny what a little time off will do. Just back from vacation and figuratively pushing my psyche through the sieve of relaxation, it dawns on me slowly. Creativity takes guts. Some people have them, other people don't. This epiphany came from two disparate sources: football and the "new" TV season. I didn't see much of either on my seven day "hiatus" (we'll be revisiting that word in a second), but I saw enough -- enough to know that we, the consuming public, are getting cheated on both fronts.

  • Yahoo: For Them, Breaking Up Is Hard To Do Friday, 5 Oct 2007 | 2:36 PM ET

    Did you see the report from Sanford Bernstein analyst Jeffrey Lindsay this morning, making the case that Yahoo is more valuable broken up than it is as the sum of its pieces? If you're a Yahoo shareholder, you're salivating at the argument. If you're a casual observer, you're wondering whether a plan like this has legs and whether its enough to turn you into a Yahoo shareholder.
