Acquiring TikTok Would Be Disastrous for Microsoft. Here’s Why

Microsoft acquiring TikTok will be a mess of red tape. TikTok currently operates within the same boundaries the president is requesting from Microsoft, making it unlikely for the deal to ever be considered satisfactory. Regardless of whether Microsoft gets Tiktok, Facebook will have had enough time to crush the app with a copycat feature. This weekend, Donald Trump vowed to ban social media app TikTok over security. Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) swooped in shortly thereafter, confirming rumors that the tech giant would buy TikTok’s American, Canadian, Australian, and New Zealand operations. Microsoft…

Here’s Why Exxon Should Slash Its Giant Dividend

Investors love energy stocks because of their large, reliable dividends–but it’s a new day. Exxon is losing boatloads of money because of historically low oil prices in the second quarter, and it’s time for investors to tighten their belts.
