In the last few weeks, Barnes & Noble (NYSE:BKS) has experienced its fair share of headaches. First, the company posted terrible Q4 results as comps declined 4.1% y/y and a loss of $21.1 million – down $8 million from last year’s result. Then, on July 3rd, CEO Demos Parneros was terminated for violating the company’s policies. We don’t know exactly what this is, but Parneros is receiving no termination compensation.

In recent weeks, President Trump has come out viciously barking about potential trade wars, not only with China, but also with other allies, including key trade collaborators in Europe, Canada, and Mexico. What does this all mean? Should you brace for a nasty financial bite in your portfolio, or should you remain calm and hold tight?

Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU) has seen the usual ups and downs of a recent IPO. Roku stock came out of the gate under $20 per share and didn’t do much at first. But strong earnings soon had investors racing into Roku stock. It would reach as high as $59 per share by the end of 2017.

Rent-A-Center Inc (NASDAQ:RCII) surged on news of a buyout deal. The Plano, Texas-based rent-to-own company increased when Vintage Capital Management, LLC agreed to take the company private. Now, as RCII stock is removed from trading, the company embarks on a new era as a private company. Many will wonder if this serves as the best move for investors. Although the direction in which Vintage will take Rent-A-Center remains unknown, the deal creates a chance to recover and move the company in a new direction outside of the public eye.
