Walking, the original means of locomotion, nowadays offers an additional and equally beneficial function: The power to keep us from going stark-raving nuts. Maybe. I hope.

43. Time to end farce of Evergreen Place preservation -

They look out of place because they are, in both setting and time, two forlorn mid-19th century structures inharmoniously situated behind a Region’s Bank and within sight of the Home Depot that created the problem.

NEW YORK (AP) — The divide between retail winners and losers is widening.

64. US stocks notch gains, snap short losing streak -

Gains in energy and internet companies helped drive stocks broadly higher on Wall Street Thursday, snapping a two-day losing streak for the market in an otherwise choppy week of trading.

73. Lowe's swings to 4Q loss on charges, anemic housing market -

Stripping out the charges, earnings were 80 cents per share, a penny better than analysts polled by FactSet had expected.

NEW YORK (AP) — As stocks hit record after record in the past decade, investors didn't much care if a stock was cheap or expensive. What mattered most was: Is it growing quickly?

If the answer was yes, the stock was in high demand, almost regardless of the price. Investors were ravenous for companies able to add customers and deliver fat growth. So they were willing to pay premium prices for an Amazon or a Netflix. Left behind were stocks in more staid industries, even if they looked like better bargains by several measures.
