    VIDEO2:1002:10Gold could hit $4,000 in next three years: U.S. Global InvestorsSquawk Box Asia Gold prices could forge ahead to $4,000 per ounce in the next three years, but factors such as the development of a coronavirus vaccine and the November U.S. elections could change the fortunes of the precious metal, analysts say. This year, gold prices have shot to record highs not seen since September 2011. Investors have been fleeing to "safe haven" assets as the pandemic shows no signs of abating. Last week, gold prices surged above $2,000 per ounce for the first time. "It's quite easy to see gold going to $4,000," Frank Holmes, CEO at investment firm U.S. Global Investors, told CNBC on Monday. He pointed to...
    Spencer Platt | Getty Images As earnings season wraps up, analysts are reviewing their short-term and long-term take on the stocks they cover. While some companies delivered blowout quarters (see below), other stocks are suffering as global restrictions continue. And while government-backed stimulus programs can provide some relief, the truth remains that the pandemic- and its impact on business- is a long way from over.  In this unprecedented time, it makes sense to follow the stock picks of analysts with a proven track record of success. TipRanks analyst forecasting service attempts to pinpoint Wall Street's best-performing analysts. These are the analysts with the highest success rate and average return measured on a one-year basis — factoring in the number of ratings made by...

    He was the consummate behind the scenes player, advising and influencing the Los Angeles City Council on its most urgent issues while staying out of the public eye. Ronald F. Deaton, the city’s chief legislative analyst from 1993 to 2004, offered his expertise as the council responded to the 1994 Northridge earthquake, dealt with the aftermath of major civil unrest and battled a years-long campaign to break up the city. When the mayor and council were at odds, or council members weren’t speaking to each other, Deaton served as a valuable go-between, said Zev Yaroslavsky, who served on the council and later the county Board of Supervisors. “People trusted him, because at the end of the day, he loved the...
    Everson Griffen has been heavily linked to the Green Bay Packers over the last few months, according to Gary Davenport of Bleacher Report. He wrote on Saturday that if the Minnesota Vikings do anything with the rest of this offseason, they should find a way to make sure Griffen does not end up with their division rival.

    (CNN)When you think about cyber espionage, the Vatican doesn't come to mind as an obvious target. It's a tiny country whose leader has more moral authority than worldly power. But China and the Vatican are expected to begin sensitive negotiations in September to a renew a secret deal over control of the Catholic Church in China. Chinese leaders may have been looking for an advantage -- inside knowledge on how the Holy See planned to approach the bargaining table, according to a report released Tuesday by Recorded Future, a threat intelligence firm.

    Now that the deadline for the Cincinnati Bengals to sign A.J. Green to an extension has come and gone, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk thinks there’s a chance the team will cut ties with its wide receiver entirely. The NFL insider wrote on Thursday that he thinks team owner Mike Brown might see a way to save some cash by pulling back Green’s franchise tag offer. Because the receiver hasn’t signed the offer, it’s within the rules for the Bengals to do so. The league’s rules allow for a player to operate in a season under a franchise tag without signing it. Several players over the years have done this as a kind of protest against the franchise tag...

    The Kansas City Chiefs would not make a good landing spot for David Njoku. Despite the Cleveland Browns’ star asking for a trade, Arrowhead Addict‘s Matt Conner thinks the Chiefs should stay far away from the tight end unless the asking price is significantly lower than initial reports said. Conner said that in a vacuum, the idea of the Chiefs going out and getting a good young player like Njoku sounds attractive. It would be true of any team in the NFL. But, the analyst said, trades don’t happen in a vacuum. There are plenty of external factors that need to be considered. Among the factors that should make Njoku a no-go for the Chiefs is that the team already...
    Colin Kaepernick would be the perfect candidate for a backup quarterback spot on the Kansas City Chiefs roster, according to Sports Illustrated‘s Mark Van Sickle.

Van Sickle said that Chiefs fans shouldn’t be concerned about the idea of the veteran making the team and that it makes quite a bit of sense considering the way the team’s roster is constructed. Van Sickle made it clear there wouldn’t be a competition between Mahomes and Kaepernick for the starting spot. The issue is what the quarterback room looks like beyond the former NFL MVP.

    New York Jets defensive back Jamal Adams might be available for the right price, but the San Francisco 49ers don’t make a lot of sense, according to former NFL General Manager Jeff Diamond. Kristian Dyer of SI reported that Diamond thinks such a deal wouldn’t be a good fit for the 49ers primarily because the team simply doesn’t have a ton of salary cap space to maneuver under. He added the team is already built to be pretty strong on defense and if the team were to be looking to make a trade at this point in the offseason, it would be to add some offense. Dyer said a report popped up last week that the 49ers were interested in...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Andy Masur, who has filled in on White Sox radio broadcasts for two years, will be the team’s new play-by-play announcer on WGN Radio, following the death of longtime broadcaster Ed Farmer in April. Masur, a Glenview native, will join analyst Darrin Jackson in the radio booth for the upcoming 60-game season, which will begin on July 23 or 24. He has filled in for both Farmer and Jackson over the past two seasons. “I am truly honored and humbled to join my friend Darrin Jackson in the White Sox radio booth this season,” Masur said in a statement. “Many people before me have said legends cannot be replaced, and the great Ed Farmer is truly irreplaceable....
    During a segment in MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” regular contributor John Heilemann said recent comments by Vice President Mike Pence make it appear that he is putting distance between himself and Donald Trump and may be a sign of the parting of the ways as the president’s fortunes plunge. Speaking with host Joe Scarborough, Heilemann explained that Pence is not the only one who seems to be moving away from the president. “We’re not at the point yet, I want to be not hyperbolic about it, but we’re getting to a point where we’re going to get the answer to a question you’ve been asking me three and a half years, which is when are Republicans going to abandon Donald Trump...
    During an appearance on Morning Joe on Tuesday, network analyst John Heilemann claimed that Vice President Mike Pence is distancing himself from President Donald Trump as Republicans prepare to “abandon” the president. Although Heilemann contended that Republicans are not yet at this point, he claimed that “the day will come” when they will leave Trump due to the political cost of staying by his side. As reported by Raw Story, Heilemann pointed to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s decision to wear a mask, as well as Republican Sen. John Thune’s call to the Trump White House to “change its message.” The American journalist then turned his attention to Pence. “Mike Pence is now effectively repudiating the president, he’s on the...
    In a 5-4 ruling announced on Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a Louisiana law that required abortion providers to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital in a win for reproductive rights. And surprisingly, Chief Justice John Roberts voted with the liberal justices to preserve the court’s precedents and protect abortion access. Social conservatives are furious with Roberts. But legal writer Mark Joseph Stern argues in Slate that Roberts’ reasoning in the case, June Medical Services v. Russo, isn’t quite as favorable to abortion rights as it may initially appear. “The outcome is, indisputably, a triumph for Louisiana’s three remaining clinics, which can now remain open thanks to the Supreme Court,” Stern explains. “But Roberts’ opinion itself is...
    Getty Lamar Jackson looks on after a playoff loss in 2020. The Baltimore Ravens have what many consider to be the best teams in the NFL, but what if they didn’t even have the best team in their own conference? Many might not agree with that sentiment or thought, but it’s one that has been presented by ESPN analyst Mina Kimes. Recently, on an episode of Get Up, Kimes was asked to name the top teams in the AFC.

    Colin Kaepernick. (Photo by Carmen Mandato/Getty Images) What if Colin Kaepernick backed up Ryan Tannehill on the Tennessee Titans? Colin Kaepernick to the Tennessee Titans would certainly make some noise in the Music City. It has been three years since the former starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers have played in the NFL. His kneeling during the playing of the national anthem got in the way of his message when he was last with the 49ers in 2016. But with the political climate changing in the midst of the Black Lives Matter movement, could we see Kaepernick back in the NFL in 2020? It’s not going to be anywhere near as taboo as it would have been even a...
    The Dallas Cowboys aren’t going to be willing to pay as much for Jamal Adams as the New York Jets are going to want in return for the star defender. That’s according to former NFL player turned analyst Darren Woodson. The former defensive back appeared on the Pat McAfee Show this weekend and he appeared to throw some “cold water” on the Adams to Cowboys rumors, according to Braulio Perez of Fansided. Woodson’s comments come after what Perez said feels like years of Cowboys fans waiting for some good news on the Adams front. The team reportedly tried to trade for him at the deadline in 2019 but a near deal fell through. Since then the team had apparently moved...

    Joe Biden’s commanding lead in the polls is “safe” and will not prove to be a red herring that ends in defeat, like Hillary Clinton’s in 2016, Slate writer William Saletan predicted. Back in 2016, the former First Lady and Secretary of State had a small lead — 3 percentage points — going into Election Day, and various models forecast that she would win, as Time reported at the time. Further, at various points leading up to the election, Clinton had even bigger leads in the polls. History, however, proved those polls wrong, and Clinton, though winning the popular vote, lost the election to Donald Trump. It’s a fact that’s been pointed out repeatedly during this election cycle, by both...
    The San Francisco 49ers headed into the final quarter of Super Bowl LIV with a 10 point lead. However, they fell victim to a stupendous comeback orchestrated by Patrick Mahomes, who powered the Kansas City Chiefs to glory. The AFC side scored 3 touchdowns in the final 6 minutes. Whilst Mahomes had made clutch performances a habit in the playoffs, there is no doubt that Kyle Shanahan’s 49ers were hit the hardest. It is something that the team is fixated on and is their sole motivator. But as per an analyst, the head coach is sending the wrong message.  San Francisco 49ers coach is sending his team the worst message As per ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio, Kyle Shanahan seems to be...
    Despite losing two key players, Kyrie Irving and Al Horford, last summer, the Boston Celtics still managed to establish an impressive performance and exceed the expectations from them in the 2019-20 NBA season. Before the NBA went on a hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Celtics were sitting in the No. 3 spot in the Eastern Conference with a 43-21 record. The Celtics may not be currently viewed on the same level as NBA powerhouse teams like the Milwaukee Bucks, Los Angeles Lakers, and the Los Angeles Clippers, but there are still some people who believe that they have what it takes to bring home the Larry O’Brien Trophy this year, including former NBA player and basketball analyst Jay...

ESPN analyst Field Yates made several trade suggestions Thursday morning that, while lofty, he thinks would benefit both teams. His take on a trade between the Minnesota Vikings and Los Angeles Chargers trade: the Vikings offer veteran offensive lineman Riley Reiff (and agree to pay $3.8 million of his base salary) for cornerback Desmond King II, who is considered one of the best slot cornerbacks in the NFL. Here’s what Yates had to say on how the trade could benefit the Vikings: “The Vikings drafted Ezra Cleveland out of Boise State, their heir apparent to Reiff, in the second round...

Reid may be filling the network’s 7 p.m. slot, which was formerly occupied by anchor Chris Matthews. He resigned in March following numerous controversies. Among these controversies were allegations that he made inappropriate comments to female guests.

    Trading Damien Williams before the season starts for the Kansas City Chiefs might be best for the team, according to at least one analyst. Leigh Oleszczak of the Kansas City Kingdom wrote on Tuesday that dealing the veteran running back would, among other things allow the team to truly give first-round draft pick Clyde Edwards-Helaire a chance to show the NFL what he can do. Oleszczak said Williams is likely going to be the Chiefs’ starter if he remains on the team. That role is thanks to his performance late in the season and the playoffs. His play during the Chiefs’ Super Bowl win over the San Francisco 49ers almost won him the game’s Most Valuable Player award. In the...

    Getty Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James. There’s a rumor going around that the Los Angeles Lakers have been holding private team practices during the pandemic at the private Staples Replica in Bel Air, which really doesn’t sit well with former MLB executive turned podcaster David Samson. Samson slammed the Lakers over the allegation, comparing it to PED use and sing-stealing in baseball on his podcast “Nothing Personal With David Samson.” “If you’re the NBA you’ve got to look into this. To me this is as serious as PEDs and this is as serious as sign-stealing by the Astros, and the Red Sox and the Yankees and every other team,” Samson said. “Now before you take this as...
    Getty Minnesota Vikings defensive end Danielle Hunter (right) was recently named one of 12 NFL players whose teams should never let them leave. It’s becoming increasingly rare in the modern NFL era for an elite player to wear just one team’s jersey his entire career —  but one NFL analyst argues that the Minnesota Vikings should try to lock down defensive end Danielle Hunter. NFL.com senior analyst Gil Brandt listed 12 players in the league whose teams “should never let them leave.” He had this to say about Hunter: “By the time your average top-tier veteran is ready to sign his third NFL contract, his team is often ready to move on to younger, cheaper talent. But that...
    NFL Broadcaster Brian Baldinger spoke out on 95.7 The Game and chimed in on San Francisco 49ers’ future. He expressed a desire to see WR Antonio Brown return to action under the 49ers’ banner. Just a few days removed from Coach Kyle Shanahan’s new 6-year deal renewal, disaster struck the 49ers’ camp. WR Samuel Deebo has suffered a Jones Fracture per Ian Rapoport during a training session in Nashville.

Additionally, Deebo Samuel has been tentatively ruled out for a minimum rehabilitation time of 12 weeks.

    A former Pentagon analyst who alleged that his journalist girlfriend pressured him into sharing classified information with her in order to help her career was sentenced 30 months in prison on Thursday for leaking top secret materials. Henry Kyle Frese, a 31-year-old former analyst at the Defense Intelligence Agency, pleaded guilty on Feb. 20 to leaking information to two journalists in 2018 and 2019. Federal prosecutors sought a 10-year sentence for Frese. His lawyers asked for a one-year sentence, asserting that he did not leak the information in order to undermine U.S. interests. Instead, they argued that Frese succumbed to pressure from a journalist he was dating. The journalist has been identified through public records and clues from the government’s...

Recently, Adam Rank of NFL.com revealed his season prediction for the Lions. Naturally, it made a lot of waves on the internet considering the record he pegs the team with. Rank has the Lions going 3-13 this coming season. Within the prediction, the Lions win the first game of the season, rip off an 8 game losing streak, win a pair of games around Thanksgiving and then lose out to finish the year. Here’s...
    In some respects this could be considered strange and counterintuitive: we have a nation roiled by street protests, the vast majority of which were peaceful, but some of which have erupted into violence. The violence was typically at the hands of law enforcement, but the news media have also highlighted widespread property damage and looting by civilians in several areas. Many observing what is happening in the streets are not participants in these protests, and many are locked down in their homes with only limited mobility as a consequence of an unprecedented health crisis that has not only altered their day-to-day lives but has also devastated the economy. Normally this type of atmosphere would seem to be ideal for a...
    An FBI lawyer who was dismissed from the special counsel investigation into Russian collusion has been hired as a legal and national security analyst for MSNBC. Lisa Page, whose anti-Trump texts with fired FBI agent Peter Strzok got her removed from Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign colluded with Russia to steal the election, was announced as MSNBC’s latest hire Friday evening. “JUST ANNOUNCED: @MSNBC welcomes Former FBI Lawyer @NatSecLisa as an NBC News & MSNBC National Security & Legal Analyst,” the channel’s public relations account tweeted. As Mueller investigated the Trump campaign (he ultimately discovered no evidence of collusion, despite years of media headlines claiming the opposite), text messages between Strzok and Page became public...

Page made her debut as an MSNBC analyst during "Deadline: White House" alongside former Mueller probe prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, who appears to have been rehired by the network after they severed ties after it was announced he was hosting a Biden fundraiser, which was ultimately canceled.

    The coronavirus will slash box office revenues in half this year, and the pandemic is now poised to weaken the longtime status of movie theaters as destinations for first-run movies, according to an influential media analyst. Revenue from ticket sales will plunge to $5.5 billion this year, down more than 50 percent from $11.4 billion in 2019, MoffettNathanson analyst Michael Nathanson predicted on Tuesday. The drop could get steeper if theaters don’t reopen in July and if summer blockbusters like Warner Bros.’ “Tenet,” set to debut July 17,  or Disney’s “Mulan,” scheduled for July 24, get pushed back to later in the year. The analyst predicted “a significant bounceback” in 2021 to $9.7 billion in ticket sales, partly because a...
    HBO Max, the all-important streaming service launched last week by WarnerMedia, isn’t likely to propel the company to the top of the streaming industry, according to one industry expert. “HBO Max isn’t a game changer for AT&T,” Evercore ISI analyst Vijay Jayant said of the service, which launched on May 27. HBO Max, which includes original content as well as films and shows from HBO, Cartoon Network and Turner Classic Movies, is WarnerMedia’s offering meant to compete with streaming giants like Netflix, Disney+, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video. But the $14.99-a-month service launched without some of the content it had promoted earlier in the year, including “The Dark Knight,” “13 Going on 30,” “The Matrix,” and “The Hobbit: The Desolation...

The first shot appeared to be fired when Orlovsky took issue with Lillard’s comments to Yahoo Sports when he said he wasn’t going to play a restarted NBA season unless the Trail Blazers had a “true opportunity” to make the playoffs and compete for a championship. Lillard’s remarks prompted Orlovsky’s take on ESPN’s “Get Up.” TRAIL BLAZERS' DAMIAN LILLARD VOWS TO RETURN TO COURT ONLY IF TEAM HAS 'TRUE OPPORTUNITY' TO MAKE PLAYOFFS “How can you sit there and go, ‘Nope, I’m not going to play,' but understand that there are people out there that don’t have that choice,” Orlovsky said....
