Uber Technologies’ (NYSE:UBER) $2.6 billion buyout of Postmates might not generate the kinds of profits investors were expecting. In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Uber said Postmates has an accumulated deficit of nearly $1 billion, meaning even a pandemic-fueled increase in demand saw the food delivery specialist recording losses of $32 million in the second quarter.

According to Uber, Postmates saw a 125% increase in revenue during the period as sales jumped from $71 million to $160 million. And though that allowed it to slash its losses for the quarter, it indicates that even during a period of unprecedented consumer demand, Postmates is still a money-losing operation.

That’s not much different from Grubhub (NYSE:GRUB), which despite seeing a 41% jump in second-quarter revenue, recorded a $0.17 per share loss for the period. Uber has said further consolidation will be necessary for the industry

The pandemic continues to decimate the nation’s economy. Real people are in real pain. State and local governments face unprecedented budget gaps. All eyes turn to Washington, where dysfunction has reigned for months.

There’s one last chance before the presidential election to get needed relief to the unemployed, to struggling businesses, from restaurants to airlines, to schools and child care centers, and to states like our own, where revenues have fallen and expenses — including the expense of fighting this pandemic — have soared.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are at least negotiating again — for the first time since August — about the terms of that relief bill and about its bottom line. With no congressional action since the last relief bill passed in April, they could both use a preelection win — and so could the American people.

House Democrats put forth yet another

DraftKings (NASDAQ:DKNG) has fallen 16% off its highs in just a few days. And while it obviously would have been prudent to book profits at the top, the market doesn’t ring alarms before stocks correct. Let’s not worry about the hindsight scenarios, but instead look forward to see where it would make sense to own DraftKings stock.

I begin with the argument that this is still a stock to own for the long term. Nevertheless, and for the sake of more active traders, we will delve into the levels that matter now.

First let’s set the scene that the drop was not DraftKings’ fault. The Nasdaq Composite index fell just as much and at the same time. For all we know the rally in DKNG could

Unions’ strength amid the epidemic will be tested this fall. Democrats rely heavily on labor’s political support every November. That’s no different this year, but the coronavirus is. Laid-off workers don’t pay union dues, meaning the pandemic may cut into organized labor’s electoral spending. More worrisome for Democrats, COVID-19 could kneecap unions’ most potent campaign contribution: legions of door-knocking volunteers.

Uniting for Democrats

Unions influence elections in three main ways: members’ votes, manpower and money.

First, it’s persuading members to vote for the union’s endorsed candidates. That usually happens face to face: at the workplace, at the union hall or over a post-shift beer. But COVID-19 put the kibosh on that. So, instead, unions are relying on phone calls, texts and more mailers to convince members to vote the labor line.

There are 14.6 million union members in the U.S., and they tend to vote at higher rates than the

ORLANDO — You hope the Celtics can get over this, coming up empty after a 58-minute battle with their sudden arch-rivals from the North, coming so close to a berth in the Eastern Conference finals but unable to make that one final play or perhaps draw that one pivotal foul.

The Celtics walked away from their 125-122 double-overtime loss to the Toronto Raptors an angry bunch but strangely encouraged. They played well enough to win but the Raptors, especially Norman Powell and Kyle Lowry, made more plays Wednesday.

The anger boiled over after the buzzer when Marcus Smart got into an exchange with some Raptors players follow yet another close and controversial finish. Toronto coach Nick Nurse, who is rising up to the Joe Torre and Pat Riley level of villainhood in Boston, once again complained after almost every call and resorted to screaming when Celtics players were holding the

Just because a business does not make any money, does not mean that the stock will go down. For example, although made losses for many years after listing, if you had bought and held the shares since 1999, you would have made a fortune. But while the successes are well known, investors should not ignore the very many unprofitable companies that simply burn through all their cash and collapse.

So should Iovance Biotherapeutics (NASDAQ:IOVA) shareholders be worried about its cash burn? For the purposes of this article, cash burn is the annual rate at which an unprofitable company spends cash to fund its growth; its negative free cash flow.
