"Stocks: Mutual Fund Investors Hate Them the Most Since Oct. 2008" By Mark Gongloff; Wall Street Journal

Equity mutual funds lost a whopping $30 billion last week, according to the Investment Company Institute, their worst week since Oct. 15, 2008, in the depths of the financial crisis. We haven’t had an entire month with more than $30 billion in equity fund withdrawals since March 2009, much less one week.


ABERCROMBIE & FITCH PROPOSES A WIN-WIN SITUATION by Abercrombie & Fitch, Brand Senses Department

We are deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino's association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image. We understand that the show is for entertainment purposes, but believe this association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans. We have therefore offered a substantial payment to Michael 'The Situation' Sorrentino and the producers of MTV's The Jersey Shore to have the character wear an alternate brand. We have also extended this offer to other members of the cast, and are urgently waiting a response.
