Senate, unlike House, would keep mortgage deduction intact

Finance
New details of GOP tax planSenate Republicans have a message for their House counterparts: leave the mortgage interest deduction alone. On Thursday, Senate Republicans unveiled their version of a tax reform bill, and it retains the current tax break that allows homeowners to deduct interest on mortgages up to $ 1 million,according to initial materials from the Senate Finance Committee. That's in contrast to the House bill proposed last week, that would limit the deduction to home loans over $ 500,000. That lower cap would have only applied to new mortgages.

One of this month's biggest winners is  Roku (NASDAQ: ROKU) , soaring 16% last week and 89% for all of November. The stock's been on fire since the company posted game-changing third-quarter results  in its first financial report as a public company.Some reports earlier in the week credited the rally to a short squeeze , which is a possibility since 4.8 million shares of Roku, or roughly 30% of the public float, were sold short by the end of October. The stock had skyrocketed 70% a week earlier on the strong quarter, so it's not out of the question to think that short sellers were scrambling to cut their losses. However, the rally was cut short on Tuesday, when Oppenheimer downgraded the stock. The unflattering analyst call ate into most of Monda...

Roundup: Houston Astros keep Boston Red Sox from clinching AL East

Sports
BOSTON -- The Houston Astros kept Boston's champagne on ice and also kept their own hopes for home-field advantage throughout the American League playoffs alive with a 3-2 decision over the Red Sox on Friday night. Houston's second straight win over the Red Sox kept Boston's magic number for clinching the American League East at one, with the New York Yankees winning earlier in the day to stay alive. Still, one Boston win or one New York loss and the Red Sox have their second straight AL East title. The Astros remained one game behind the Cleveland Indians for the league's best record, a deficit that was in reality two games because Cleveland owns the tiebreaker thanks to a 5-1 season series win. Alex Bregman had an RBI single and two-run homer among his three hits and Charlie Morton (14-7...
