The U.S. government posted a March budget deficit of $660 billion, a record high for the month, as direct payments to Americans under President Joe Biden's stimulus package were distributed, the Treasury Department said on Monday. The COVID-19 pandemic did not have a big impact on the first six months of fiscal 2020, as increased outlays tied to rising unemployment due to pandemic-related lockdowns and major new aid spending did not start until the very end of March 2020 and ramped up in the following month, a Treasury official told reporters. The March deficit, which compared to a year-earlier fiscal gap of $119 billion, included receipts of $268 billion and outlays of $927 billion - both record highs for that month.

Deb Cleveland Deb Cleveland Maryland, USA, April 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Via Influencivewire -One sector that women are making strides and progress is the real estate business. It is no surprise that the real estate industry is booming because of this, as more and more women are getting involved in real estate investing. One of the most successful and influential women in real estate is Deb Cleveland. A real estate investor who is responsible for establishing the brand called, “Chicks Who Flip”. Deb was so passionate about the real estate and property business that she read endlessly and acquired knowledge about the wealth and immense opportunities in real estate. Inspiration Behind The Movement: Her brain-child, the “Chicks Who Flip” movement is geared at teaching women, especially those that are retired, about the workings and intricacies of real estate investment, in a way that helps them to make money, make an impactful difference, learn something new and majorly have fun while at it. The brand is about transforming and creating a high-end decorator look on a budget serving the first-time home-buyer market as a profitable fixer and flipper. The creation of the brand isn’t just drawn from the love for houses, buildings, and properties. It also extends to creating beauty and making a difference. “I find neighborhoods, areas, and cities where there is a high demand for renovated housing and I work on them”, Deb explains. Problems Solved by The Movement: Chicks Who Flip seeks to target three major areas which include transforming houses, finding and encouraging women that fix and flip the houses, and at the same time have a huge impact on the neighborhood. It starts with transforming just one house on a street. “Just doing one blighted house starts lighting up the entire street. It is quite amazing to watch the neighbors come out and start working on their homes too”, Deb says. However, walking down this path has not come easy for Deb Cleveland and the brand. It takes a lot of dedication to be successful in the real estate business, and it takes more for a woman to achieve this success. “I was not sure how to bring what I know to the market. I am great at the boots on the ground, knocking on doors and building relationships that way, but I have not been good at understanding the internet marketing space or how to build an online business to help spread the word to other women”. Deb explains. Attaining Growth: Deb Cleveland’s story started with a deep desire to figure out what it would take to be a millionaire. However, Deb started out in an unpleasant situation, having lost everything to an abusive marriage that was also filled with infidelity. She decided to empower herself by reading a lot of books, seeking great counseling, and embarking on a spiritual journey, with teachings from the likes of Deepak Chopra. Deb secured a sales job after several job searches and within two years, she became a top ten salesperson in the company. After four years, Deb ventured into a similar business called “Print Works Plus”, where she sold branded and logo promotional and premium items to restaurants, business, es and corporations. “After several years of learning and earning, I decided to create a movement that will inspire other women and transform their lives. I decided to create a movement for retired babyboomer women to join me in doing just one fixer-upper for fun” Deb says.

(Bloomberg) -- GameStop Corp.’s shares fell on Monday, heading toward the longest losing streak in year, after another analyst questioned the video-game retailer’s long-term potential despite activist Ryan Cohen’s latest efforts to revitalize the company.Its shares extended their slump to fall as much as 15% after Reuters reported the company is seeking a replacement for the current Chief Executive Officer George Sherman, citing unidentified people familiar with the situation. Its the latest in a series of high level departures after Jim Bell was ousted from his role as chief financial officer after a disagreement over strategy.The report follows a warning by Ascendiant Capital Markets analyst Edward Woo who downgraded the retailer to sell from hold, saying increasing digital sales for video-game publishers is a looming risk given GameStop’s minimal market share. He warned clients in a note about the long-term prospects for the company as the market for new gaming systems matures after new launches from Microsoft Corp. and Sony Group Corp.GameStop’s Reddit-trading surge is “likely to fade” as digital downloads of games increase at a faster pace, Woo wrote in the note.The video-game retailer’s 741% surge this year through Friday’s close pushed its market value to $11 billion, however, Woo expects shares will tumble in the long run “to match its current weak results and outlook.” He trimmed his price target to $10 from $12, implying as much as a 94% drop from Friday’s close at $158.36.Cohen has brought on a number of new executives and board members over the past few months as part of his overhaul. GameStop hired new senior executives to oversee growth and technology while nominating new board members including Larry Cheng, managing partner of Volition Capital, where Cohen made his name, and Yang Xu, senior vice president of global finance and treasury at Kraft Heinz Co.GameStop’s slide coincided with selloffs in other meme stocks including animal health company Zomedica Corp., cannabis firm Sundial Growers Inc., and apparel company Naked Brand Group Ltd. The three stocks were among the 20 most actively traded companies in Monday’s session.GameStop didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on the Reuters report.Ascendiant called out the rise in popularity of GameStop on Reddit chat boards and with Robinhood investors for making shares trade on “retail investors sentiment, hope, momentum, and the powers of crowds” in place of fundamental metrics. Woo did acknowledge the mania can drive shares much higher in the near-term, making short-term price forecasts “nearly impossible.”The stock now has five sell-equivalent ratings, compared to two hold ratings and zero buys, data compiled by Bloomberg show. An average price target of $46.50 implies shares will lose two-thirds of their value in the coming year.(Updates to add Reuters report of CEO search in first two paragraphs, updates share movement and adds request for comment in eighth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Bradenton, FL, April 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SUNZ Holdings has long served as the bridge connecting employees, businesses, and lawmakers. As a national insurance provider, the company is in the unique position of being able to effectively translate the needs of businesses while also highlighting the potential voids in employee protection. This ability to see all sides and understand how various lawmakers across the country draft legislation has become an important part of protecting employees under the Professional Employer Organization (PEO) model. Providing perspective is essential to the ongoing relationship between government entities and the business community. Naturally, the two want to work together to form a symbiotic relationship, which ultimately leads to a stable workforce and robust economy. However, sometimes it can be difficult for the two sides to communicate effectively, often leaving workers in the crossfire. The role of SUNZ is to create an ongoing conversation that values the views of both parties and seeks to achieve a shared understanding. Through advocacy, education, and transparency, SUNZ creates that conversation in state capitals and board rooms across the country. To foster an open dialogue with lawmakers, SUNZ will meet one-on-one or in small committee groups with representatives. These meetings serve as working thought leader sessions where representatives can dive into important constituent issues specific to employment and workers’ compensation. Intimately understanding these issues, SUNZ provides lawmakers with a clear picture of how each decision will ultimately affect workers and businesses. Take, for example, HB 1305 introduced in the Florida House of Representatives in March of 2021. On its own, the bill does little to protect employees or ensure they are provided safe working conditions. That is a significant problem considering that according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2.8 million nonfatal injuries occurred in the private sector in 2019 alone (2020 statistics are not available). One step further, according to the BLS, one worker died every 99 minutes in that same year. With such high numbers of workplace injuries, it is no surprise that American companies spend roughly $1 billion in workers’ compensation per week. Putting increased burden on PEO organizations, the bill was missing a crucial point of view. Working closely with lawmakers, the SUNZ team illustrated how “The Gap” left vulnerable employees uninsured. Since the early days of workmen’s compensation, “The Gap” has allowed contractors to underreport their employee roster to cut costs. By underreporting, contractors alleviate themselves of the responsibility and expense of insurance while employees are left in coverage limbo. In the above case of HB 1305, SUNZ serves a crucial role as voice and translator. Through its working relationship with legislators, SUNZ has carefully illustrated the reality of “The Gap.” If passed, this legislation would make it virtually impossible for PEOs to work with small construction companies, but it would not put a stop to the real problem, which is fraud. As a third party, the SUNZ team can provide a bird’s eye view of the situation and effectively advocate for the employees who suffer when fraud occurs. HB 1305 is only one of many national legislative priorities that the SUNZ team monitors on a daily basis. Clients of the organization come to SUNZ looking to streamline their employee insurance coverage while also providing the highest level of protection for their workforce. This need takes many different forms depending on the industry and is heavily influenced by state and federal legislation. Legislation can have profound and extended consequences for companies and their employees. While lawmakers often have the best intentions, it is vital that advocates provide a picture of how a decision will affect those downstream of it. SUNZ has and will continue to serve as that advocate, giving voice to the concerns of its clients and everyday employees nationwide. This mission is not about deal-making or lobbying; it is about providing companies and workers with the confidence that they and their families are protected in a risky world. SUNZ Holdings, LLC is the parent company of SUNZ Insurance, a national workers’ compensation insurance company headquartered in Bradenton, Florida. SUNZ Insurance develops unique workers’ compensation programs that deliver innovative and tailored solutions to protect businesses and their employees. SUNZ understands its clients' needs for fluidity, offering workers’ compensation insurance options that do not begin and end with the printed policy. SUNZ believes that a safe work environment and a healthy workforce are the foundation for a successful business. There are several affiliate companies within the SUNZ Holdings enterprise that provide related and ancillary services to the workers' compensation insurance industry. These companies include Next Level Administrators, WatchPoint, Avalon Subrogation Partners, and Ascential Care Partners. For more information, visit www.sunzinsurance.com.
