Jeremy Siegel: With tech down for the count, a 'surprise' move could lead the market higher

Finance
The stock market can "absolutely" go higher even without technology stocks leading the way, Wharton School finance professor Jeremy Siegel told CNBC on Friday. Tech stocks, which have delivered the best returns in recent years, have been hammered lately. October was their worst month since 2008. "We might get surprised by [investors] moving into some more dividend stocks even in a rising interest rate environment because bonds wouldn't be good and people who don't want the risk of tech might say, 'Hey, I want stocks that have had long-term good dividend performance for income,'" Siegel said on "Closing Bell." ...

The former CEO of Intel is being named as the top executive at CDK Global, a company that provides technology to auto dealers.

Companies have become more diligent about enforcing rules governing intercompany relationships in the #MeToo-era.

It serves about 30,000 retailers and most automotive manuf...

The Brewers can move one game from their first World Series appearance since 1982 with a victory in a Game 4, and will try to do it on a bullpen day. Left-hander Gio Gonzalez will start the game, but the relievers are expected to get to work early, just as they did when Gonzalez pitched just two innings in Game 1. "We laid out some scenarios, kind of going into (Monday's) game, what the possibilities were for (Tuesday)," Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. "And if we got a good start (from Jhoulys Chacin) and we're in good shape, Gio was always going to be the guy." Chacin gave the Brewers 5 1/3 scoreless i...
