The Gophers will look to avoid a hangover from the Purdue win, their best boost to their NCAA tournament hopes this season. Rebounding will be key against Maryland’s big-men pair of Bruno Fernando and Jalen Smith. The Terrapins lead the Big Ten with a plus-8.9 rebounding margin and were plus-11 in their 82-67 victory over the U on Jan. 8.
The Spuds had three penalties in the final 7:26 of the first period. Just 15 seconds after killing one penalty, Moorhead (21-7-1) went back on the penalty kill. Edina (25-2-1) made it hurt, as another Minnesota commit, this time Mason Nevers, fired into the back of the net from the top of slot to make it 2-0. There was nine seconds remaining on the power play.

“Northsiders” features Hutson’s kindhearted vocal melodies, light acoustic guitar plucks and rousing strings that linger in the background. In his lyrics, Hutson masterfully mixes witty, dark humor with observational sentimentality. Lyrical highlights include “We were so pretentious then / Didn’t trust the government / Said that we were communists / And thought that we invented it,” “Tried cocaine at my cousin’s house / I’m probably addicted now” and “Morrissey apologists / Amateur psychologists / Serial monogamists / We went to different colleges.” Underlying all the droll comedy is a sobering reality—the kind of realization that makes you pull over your car to shed a few tears before pulling yourself back together (“Nothing’s going to change it now”). Hutson is the kind of songwriter that you’ll want to root for—painfully relatable lyrics, comforting melodies and a sharp-witted personality that money can’t buy.
Jeremy Grantham, an investor credited with predicting the 2000 and 2008 downturns, told CNBC on Thursday that investors should get inured to lackluster returns in the stock market for the next two decades, after a century of handsome gains. “In the last 100 years, we're used to delivering perhaps 6%,” but the U.S. market will be delivering real returns of about 2% or 3% on average over next 20 years, the value investor and co-founder of Boston-based asset manager GMO told CNBC in a rare interview. Over the past five years, the S&P 500 index (SPX) has produced a compound annual growth rate of 8.1%, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) has boasted a CAGR of 9.1%, while the Nasdaq Composite Index (COMP) has registered a compound return of 11.4% over the same period, according to FactSet data.

Downbeat news dominated the headlines overnight and early morning. In Australia a double dose negative news helped drag the Aussie dollar lower. First, RBA governor Lowe signaled it is hard to think rates will rise and then Australia’s fourth quarter GDP reading was the weakest quarterly reading since 2016. Comments from BOJ member Harada added that the BOJ must strengthen easing without hesitation. The OECD also finally updated their forecast and cut their outlooks for 2019 and 2020. They were playing catch up since their last forecast came out four months ago. US trade data also showed that in 2018, the deficit widened to a 10-year high. Under President Trump’s watch, we have also seen the gap increase by $119 billion, and that may not improve immediately as global growth is softening.
“We think the focus will shift back to the Bank’s tone, especially in light of the poor showing of December GDP. It is not clear that a single print will derail the message, especially as the average of the core inflation readings sit around 1.9%. We suspect that the GDP will reverse some of the recent momentum in USDCAD, though we like the risk/reward of fading the rallies into the recent highs near 1.34,” says Mark McCormick, head of FX stratetgy at TD.
Major global markets are enjoying a boomlet in the first three months of 2019, underpinned at least in part by central banks of developed countries that have expressed reluctance to unwind easy-money monetary policies that have become a feature of global economies in the aftermath of the 2008-2009 financial crisis. Indeed, the Stoxx Europe 600 (XX:SXXP) has risen 12.9% so far this year, Brazil's main equity gauge, the BOVESPA Index (BR:BVSP) has climbed 12.8% in 2019, while a broader measure of the performance of emerging-market stocks, the iShares MSCI Emerging Markets (EEM) has advanced by 10.3% (See chart below, featuring the performance of the key equity benchmarks over the past 12 months against moves in the U.S. dollar). Meanwhile, China's Shanghai Composite Index (CN:SHCOMP) as Chinese financial ministers have been wrestling with an economic slowdown and a persistent tussle over tariffs with the U.S., has risen 21.2% in the first three months of the year.
