Background

When I researched and wrote about Roku recently, I dived into the streaming ecosystem. One trend is Smart TV’s total viewing time increased from 7% to 15% in 1H2020, according to the Conviva State of Streaming Q2 report.

In the TV manufacturers sector, TCL (OTCPK:TCLHF)’s recent surge in North America caught my eyes. TCL electronics holdings company (hereinafter referred to as TCL) is a Chinese company headquartered and listed in Hong Kong (its stock symbol 1070.HK) and incorporated in the Cayman Islands. It manufactures TVs, other consumer electronics, and build a comprehensive ecosystem for smart TVs. In 1Q19, TCL ranked No1 in North American by TV unit shipment.

All dollar amounts discussed in this article are in USD, while numbers cited in its financial reports are in HKD. I use 1USD =7.75HKD for conversions.

Verdict Summary

I am very bullish on TCL. A conservative model values the company at

Adds official Saudi comment; paragraphs 6,7

RIYADH/ISTANBUL, Oct 4 (Reuters)The head of Saudi Arabia’s Chambers of Commerce has called for a boycott of Turkish products amid merchants’ reports that animosity between Ankara and Riyadh is hindering the flow of goods between the two regional powers.

Saudi Arabia and Turkey have been at odds for some years over foreign policy and attitudes towards Islamist political groups. The murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Saudi’s Istanbul consulate in 2018 escalated tensions sharply.

This year the two countries blocked some of each other’s news websites.

“A boycott of everything Turkish, be it imports, investment or tourism, is the responsibility of every Saudi ‘trader and consumer’, in response to the continued hostility of the Turkish government against our leadership, country and citizens,” businessman Ajlan al-Ajlan said on Twitter on Saturday.

The Saudi Chambers of Commerce is a non-government group of

Argus Leader letters to the editor for Oct. 4:

Lifelong Republican refuses to vote for Trump

I am proud to say I have been a Republican all my life. My first campaign was as a teenage volunteer for Barry Goldwater in 1964. When I attended college at Northern, I had the honor of working for Congressman Ben Reifel as a Field Rep and was selected as the Outstanding College Young Republican in 1967.

After college, I was drafted into Army and proudly served my country in Vietnam with the 101st Airborne. I was awarded the Army Commendation Medal and the Bronze Star.

In 1972, I was elected SD State Treasurer on the Republican ticket. I would be re-elected four times. I also had the good fortune to serve for eight years in Governor Bill Janklow’s state cabinet. In 1976 I was President Ford’s state chairman.

Early on in You’re About To Make A Terrible Mistake, author Olivier Sibony tells a story that sounds like the plot of a caper movie. Back in 1975, the French state-owned oil company Elf Aquitaine was approached by two men who claimed to have developed a method of discovering oil without drilling. A specially-equipped plane would “sniff” oil from a high altitude. It sounds ridiculous, but this was in the wake of the first oil shock and governments and businesses were in a panic about what they would do for energy if the crisis continued. The French government, says Sibony, had launched an advertising campaign under the slogan “In France, we don’t have oil, but we do have ideas.”

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The Latest from the U.N. General Assembly (all times EDT):

10:50 a.m.

European Union leader Charles Michel used the virtual pulpit of the U.N. General Assembly on Friday to lash out at Britain, which is threatening to renege on parts of the withdrawal treaty it signed with the EU. He warned that the 27-nation bloc won’t back down in the final weeks of acrimonious talks on a free-trade deal.

“Respect for treaties, a basic principle of international law, comes to be considered optional even by those who, until recently, were its historical guarantors,” Michel

When Erik Cardenas was little, he constantly had ear infections. But his family often couldn’t get time off to take him to the doctor.

“I remember my parents, they lived paycheck to paycheck. So I remember having my mom and dad kind of think about who could afford to stay home with me,” he told Business Insider.

At 10, Cardenas, newly insured through his mom’s commercial health plan after she got a job on the assembly line at Alcon Laboratories, took his first trip to a pediatrician’s office. While he stared at the aquarium and toys, his mom took out her purse to buy coffee from the lobby setup, not knowing it was free.
