Actor-director Regina King is no stranger to the Academy Awards. And she's up for best lead actress in a limited series at the Emmys on Sept. 17, her fourth consecutive Emmy nomination (she's won two). Known for her roles in "Southland" and the FX anthology "American Crime Story," King's most recent nomination comes not from network television, but from Netflix, where she stars in Veena Sud's drama "Seven Seconds" as Latrice Butler, a woman whose son is struck by a white police officer in a hit-and-run.

Congratulations are in order for the Eagles. The American rock band's first compilation album, Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975, has just surpassed Michael Jackson's Thriller as the best-selling album of all time. The comp, which collects nine singles and "Desperado," is now 38-times platinum as certified by the Recording Industry Association of America — meaning it has sold a total of 38,000,00 albums worldwide and bested Thriller's 33-times platinum certification.

This morning, the U.S. Trade Representative opened six days of public hearings into President Donald Trump's proposal to tax another $200 billion worth of Chinese imports. These hearings, required by Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974, are to let companies and trade groups affected by those tariffs weigh in. Here’s an indicator for you: Originally, there were only supposed to be three days of hearings.

What is a stock’s target price?

Say you’re an investor. You’re trying to figure out whether to buy or sell a certain stock. One data point that can help is the stock's target price, a number that is predicted by a stock analyst based on a few factors.

“This is where I think the stock is going to be, say by the end of the quarter, based on everything I know now, everything I see ahead,” explained Karen Petrou, managing partner at Federal Financial Analytics.

If an analyst thinks a stock will hit $100, but right now it’s sitting at $50, that might be a cue to buy.
