Here’s a Hot Tip: A Shopping Mall Operator

Published by
The Street

By Eric Reed This company is bucking the trend with its high-end retail centers, Real Money’s Paul Price argues. If any conventional wisdom has survived the past few years, it’s this: shopping malls are on their way out. The huge, indoor spaces that dominated much of 20th Century retail developed mainly out of a gimmick in the tax code and the fact that they could offer indoor air conditioning in an era when few people had that in their homes. Once that appeal faded, malls carried on largely out of their own momentum and the inexplicable success of Hot Topic. But over the last few decades, mal… Read More “Here’s a Hot Tip: A Shopping Mall Operator”

Last year on the 17th green at Waialae Country Club was the last—and only—time Kevin Na opened a green-reading book on the golf course. It was there that he needed a birdie-eagle finish to shoot 59 in the third round of the Sony Open. However, after reading the green for his 10-footer, he glanced at the book, adjusted his read, took the shot, and missed. He wound up winning the tournament with a 61, but nuts to the book, he thought. “It didn’t work out too well,” Na recalled Thursday, “so that was the last time I saw it.” Na’s longtime caddie, Kenny Harms, used to use the book to verify his in… Read More “PGA Tour Bans Green-Reading Books, Golfers React”
