  • Herbalife finally settles with the FTC 

    The controversial nutritional supplements company will pay $200 million to settle claims that consumers looking to sell Herbalife' s products lost money.

    Consumers are not shopping until they drop. Retail sales have been sluggish and that's bad news for companies like The Gap, Macy's and Walmart. But there's one retailer doing just fine. Amazon is at an all-time high.

  • Priceline still flying high despite CEO scandal  

    Despite the scandalous departure of CEO Darren Huston, Priceline's shares aren't exactly tanking. The reason? Wall Street cares more about who's on the bench than CEO scandals.
