Texas Energy Crisis Reveals a Lesson for Investors

Texans endured extreme weather last week. As home heating systems kicked on, power plants struggled to meet demand. Much of the state lost electricity. Some systems managed to meet demand. But the cost of that access was higher than expected for some. The New York Times reported on one customer facing an electric bill of $16,752.

Roku’s Revenue Rules; Ford’s Metal Confetti and Fiverr’s Freelance Affair
