Dow ended sharply lower Tuesday after President Donald Trump told his team to halt negotiations with Democrats on a fiscal stimulus package. Trump then reversed course in a tweet, sending Dow futures higher on Wednesday.

In the last episode of Mad Money, Jim Cramer asked if small businesses cab hold on until after the election? The airlines? Restaurants? With stimulus talks up in the air, Cramer looks at where we can turn to.

TheStreet’s Katherine Ross and Cramer discuss Google rebranding to G-suite, AMC reopening, and the accessibility of a potential coronavirus medicine.

Google Stock: Buy or Sell? 

Google  (GOOGL) – Get Report announced on Tuesday that the G Suite brand will be replaced by Google Workspace as the new name for its package of business tools. The rebranding comes in parallel with the Google features such as having a video chat display at the corner of a document-editing window.

Cramer said that Google stock is so far off from its high, it’s only up 10% for the year. No matter what they do seems like its snakebite. 

AMC Entertainment Stock: Buy or Sell?

AMC Entertainment  (AMC) – Get Report said Tuesday that it will keep most of its global theaters operating, and plans to increase openings in New York and California, ahead of key movie releases in the final months of the year.

The world’s biggest cinema chain said some 80% of its U.S. theaters remain open, with a higher percentage in Europe under its Oden Cinemas Group brand.

Cramer said maybe there is room for one theater and there may be a lot of people who feel that there is nothing to fear from COVID-19 if you can crush it, but if you can’t crush the virus then there is a fear.


To make the Google Play Music users transition smoother, Google has added a new feature to the Google Assistant that lets you play your personal YouTube Music playlists on Android.

Google Play Music has already bid adieu to many regions. And is going to stop working for all the users around the world this month. YouTube Music is the chosen one to carry on Play Music’s legacy.

The Mountain View giant has done all it can to make this transition from Play Music to YouTube Music as smooth as possible. In fact, Play Music subscription that goes beyond September will be converted to Play Store credits.

A tool was also provided by Google to help the Play Music users transfer their data over to the YouTube Music app. For the unaware, we have recently reported that the Google Play Music has already vanished for some on Windows OS.

However, in process of making YouTube Music compatible with its other apps, Google is making some efforts. Because, as per 9to5Google, Google Assistant is now equipped with one more feature supporting YouTube Music.

Apparently, users will be able to ask Google Assistant to play their personalized and personally curated YouTube Music playlists. Personal playlists are maintained and created by the users themselves.

This common task was not supported earlier for YouTube Music

Interestingly, this simple task of being able to play personal playlists from YouTube Music was not supported by Google Assistant. And we know YouTube Music is there for quite a while now.

So, take this as a step to make Google Assistant, as capable and featureful for performing YouTube Music related tasks. There are multiple reports that highlight that Google Assistant on Android is working to play personal YouTube Music playlists.

You simply need to say: “Hey Google, play X

After spending the better part of the last decade choking every possible cent from the digital media industry, Google’s finally getting the heat that it deserves. More and more people are realizing the company’s monopoly over digital advertising is one of the culprits behind a staggering number of newsroom layoffs. Regulators are realizing this digital dominance could constitute a serious antitrust issue. Combined, that means a massive headache for Google that can, in the company’s eyes, be solved with one thing: a decent payout.

The company’s latest attempt to claw back some goodwill among publishers is a three-year, billion-dollar partnership that’ll go toward the company’s newest product, the Google News Showcase. CEO Sundar Pichai unveiled the Showcase in a company blog post earlier today, promising it would highlight the “editorial curation of award-winning newsrooms” while also helping those newsrooms manifest “deeper relationships” with their readers.

Showcase is first debuting in the standalone Google News app for Android, with an accompanying rollout for iOS users coming “soon.” As the name implies, the app will literally start “showcasing” the top stories of the day as a carousel beneath the app’s personalized daily brief. Alongside the headlines, these stories will show summaries of the story in question, related articles, and more. And according to Pichai’s post, similar showcase-y features are set to come to Google’s Discover feed and Search engine “in the future.”

I know it sounds pretty similar to the average app most of us use for reading news on our phone right now. But Pichai wants you to believe that Showcase—which is being test run with roughly 200 “leading publications” across Canada, the EU and Latin America before a wider rollout in the future—isn’t just

In 2018, Google reorganized many of its balkanized health efforts under one roof. 

Under the name Google Health, it’s now a team of just under 600, Business Insider has learned, with a bold mission to organize the world’s health information. Many of its scientists would like to see artificial intelligence “democratize” access to care, and build search tools help doctors sift through medical information swiftly.

But healthcare is a big and complicated industry.

Google Health’s work with search and clinical tools is promising, but it’s early and the group leans heavily on other parts of Google for partnerships. It’s not sure how it’ll work with Alphabet’s Verily, a life sciences company that’s banged heads with the Google Health team before. And its employees aren’t confident in its ability to execute, according to interviews and internal documents seen by Business Insider.

While Google Health has struck up deals to work with large health systems such as Ascension and Stanford Medicine over the past two years, talks with some other major players including CVS Health and The Gates Foundation have fallen apart along the way, Business Insider has learned. Experts within the healthcare industry are still confused over what Google Health actually does. And pressure is mounting on Google Health to finally get something off the ground besides promising research. 

Over the past eight weeks, Business Insider got behind the scenes of Google’s secretive health business.

Here’s an inside look at what Google Health has been up to for the past two years, how Alphabet’s healthcare trio — Verily, Google Cloud, and Google Health — function, and what’s ahead for Google’s team of former FDA commissioners, Obama advisers, and surgeon-scientists.

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Alphabet’s Google is set to win EU antitrust approval for its $2.1 billion purchase of fitness tracker maker Fitbit to take on Apple and Samsung in the wearable technology market, people familiar with the matter said.

The world’s most popular internet search engine on Tuesday offered fresh concessions to the European Commission in a bid to address concerns the deal could entrench Google’s power in online advertising and boost its trove of data.

Google said it had offered to restrict the use of Fitbit data for Google ads and would also tighten the monitoring of that process, confirming a Reuters report. The offer is based on a July proposal.

“We’re also formalizing our longstanding commitment to supporting other wearable manufacturers on Android and to continue to allow Fitbit users to connect to third party services via APIs (application programming interfaces) if they want to,” Google said in a statement.

Third parties will also continue to have access to Fitbit users’ data, with users’ consent.

The concessions, reported earlier by Reuters, are set to clear the way for the deal to be approved, the people said.

The Commission, which is scheduled to decide on the deal by Dec. 23, declined to comment. Its decision could come earlier than the deadline.

The EU competition enforcer will now seek feedback from rivals and customers before deciding whether to accept Google’s concessions, demand more, or either clear or block the detail.

Last month, it rejected Google’s pledge not to use the fitness tracker’s data for advertising purposes in a bid to address competition concerns, saying that it was insufficient.

The deal has drawn criticism from healthcare
