The late Canadian-American actor Alan Thicke doled out measured advice as a psychiatrist dad in the sitcom Growing Pains. If only his heirs could use some handholding from “America’s Dad” now that they’re battling how to divvy up his estate.

Last week, Skechers (SKX) presented at UBS Global Consumer and Retail Conference, giving interesting updates on the status of their business and their expectations for the future. I think its worth refreshing our view of the stock and its attractiveness.
In the last few weeks, we have seen two high profile unicorns file for initial public offerings. The first out of the gate was Dropbox (Pending:DBX), a storage solution for a world where gigabyte files are the rule rather than the exception, with a filing on February 23. Following close after,
U.S. stock futures moved sharply higher on Monday, indicating Wall Street may extend gains seen late last week after data showed a strong increase in jobs created, but weaker-than-forecast wages. Dow futures
