    Industry Update—Restaurants by Canaccord Genuity Dec. 7: Our U.S. casual-dining update shows a second consecutive positive month, as we project November same-store sales [SSS] up approximately 0.6%, within our prior estimate range of flat to up 1%. On average in November, restaurant stocks notched a price return of 5.5% compared with the broad market of 2.9%, measured against the Standard & Poor’s 1500 index. -- Lynne Collier, Philip May The Daily Disruptor by DataTrek Dec. 7: One investment theme we hear a lot with regard to large-cap tech stocks is that these companies enjoy a “monopoly” in their core businesses: Alphabet/Google for internet search, Facebook for social media, Amazon.com for online shopping, and Apple for (presumably) making both cool stuff and the software to go with it.
