Frog Fractions 2 review

Your first time playing Frog Fractions is the kind of experience that’s impossibly hard to duplicate, especially if you’re trying to do it with a game called Frog Fractions 2. That very anticipation puts Frog Fractions 2 into a dangerous position at no fault of developer Twinbeard Studios. That may be why Frog Fractions 2 feels more concerned with its own irreverence than with being outright surprising. The original Frog Fractions was sort of a millennial’s Dr. Seuss book, and that’s not somethi

Retirement savings moves that cut your tax bill

Take advantage of catch-up contributions. You can also make catch-up contributions of an extra $1,000 into an IRA, which may be deductible. Having a mix can help you better control your taxable income in retirement, he said, potentially keeping you into a lower tax bracket. Health savings accounts have a triple tax advantage — you can deduct contributions, and account funds grow tax-free and can be withdrawn tax-free for qualified medical expenses.

Now is the time to bet on Netflix—and here’s how: Trader

With Netflix set to report earnings in less than a month, Todd Gordon of TradingAnalysis.com believes it's time to tune in to the streaming giant's shares. A daily chart of Netflix shows that its stock has struggled to retake $130, a level just below the all-time high that it hit back in December of last year. But according to Gordon, Netflix is about to not only return to that level, but to break through it as well. "You can see that we have tried the $130 area several times and it looks like w

The Walking Dead Season 3: A New Frontier review

In Season One, the player was a convicted murderer; saying nothing or safeguarding his past was a legitimate role-playing option. Season Two involved Clementine and some understanding of her history from the first season. Season Three strands us in the form of a new character with unknown relationships, making the dialogue choices a seat-of-the-pants affair. Nonetheless, nothing ever lasts in The Walking Dead, and Javier and his friends are soon on the move, separated from their loved ones. Two

Goldman’s wintry play: Cold-weather stocks that could keep your portfolio warm

The weather outside may be frightful, but Goldman Sachs has stock suggestions that could be delightful for investors' portfolios. Goldman's options research team came out with a list of stocks that have "strong fundamental links to cold weather" — in other words, stocks that could do well as the weather gets colder. The trade is indeed very likely to lose money if the weather turns warm. But in Goldman's defense, its argument is that the potential for an overly cold winter is currently being und
