Kroger Stock Is Edging Higher on the Announcement of Change in Financial Chiefs

Today 06:59 GMT

There’s not much data on the unit, but its role in the company’s 2020 guidance is “material” and it’s notched accelerating double-digit bottom-line growth in the past two years. Frommer notes that investors might be miffed that Schlotman is leaving before 2020, given his role in pushing aggressive guidance, but that he “will, however, likely be responsible for 2019 guidance given with fourth-quarter earnings in early March and we continue to see the potential for upside to low consensus expectations that are embedding just 1%-2% earnings before interest and taxes growth year-over-year.”

Varney: 2020 Dems Coming At Trump With 'Vote For Me, Vote for Free Money Giveaway'

Tuesday 21:51 GMT

Fox Business Network anchor Stuart Varney warned viewers Monday that the crop of potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidates are taking "public policy debate far [to the] left." Varney said top Democrats expected to make a run at President Trump all have in common their wish to expand the social welfare state and hand out "free money" or entitlements to "entice" voters.

He said that if such candidates take leading roles in the Democrats' 2020 contests, President Donald Trump and the Republicans will face "23 months of political attacks on the president and 'vote for me, vote for free money' tax enticement." "[They] want to make America more like Europe," he said.

Monday US briefing: Beto's 2020 prospects pose threat to DC Democrats

Tuesday 02:24 GMT

If early polls are anything to go by, then the failed US Senate candidate from Texas, Beto O’Rourke, must be considered among the contenders.

Speaking to NBC’s Meet the Press, however, the Democrats’ Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer insisted Trump is “not going to get the wall in any form”. Miller, one of the architects of the administration’s hardline immigration policies, told CBS’s Face the Nation on Sunday that the president would “absolutely” force a shutdown over the issue.

Tuesday 02:24 GMT

Beto O’Rourke, the congressman who fell just shy of defeating the Texas senator Ted Cruz, appears to be the exception and his 2020 prospects are already sending ripples through what promises to be a remarkable and intense contest.

A meeting between O’Rourke and Obama, held last month at the former president’s Washington office, intensified speculation over the prospects of a Beto 2020 campaign. Some activists said the Texan was winning over voters and activists in key battleground states long before he became a serious threat to any likely Democratic opponents.

Monday 13:35 GMT

MACOMB COUNTY, MICH.—Two years ago, the brick bungalows and factory floors here were a crucial part of President Trump’s path to the White House, as they fueled a Michigan victory that was widely cited as a sign of a Republican shift among blue-collar voters.

Mrs. Clinton is unlikely to appear on the Democratic ballot in 2020, meaning Republicans, including Mr. Trump, could face a more challenging landscape in Macomb and places like it in the Great Lakes region.
