Reading Time: < 1 minute I bought some Crocs stocks (CROX) a while ago; actually I looked at Under Armour (UA) at the same time and I am glad I made the correct decision (so far).

Reading Time: < 1 minute I saw this when I was doing some research on Amazon (AMZN). They are giving away $5 for overnight shipping. This is very ineresting because normally the online merchants will do free shipping. But Amazon is always innovative.

Reading Time: < 1 minute Shoebuy is having a sale on Crocs, the $10 off discount code is WWMAG. They don’t have many left though, so hurry up if you want to get a pair. I found Crocs shoes are actually gender-neutral, as you can see from the size definition, e.g., size 4 stands for Women 6/Men 4. I think people choose the

Reading Time: < 1 minute I mean the stocks, not the motel price. It’s being mentioned by IBD (Investors Business Daily) as No. 1 stock this Monday. IBD publishes 100 stocks every Monday based on its own rating system.
