State House Speaker Thom Tilis (R) — NO RESPONSE SOUTH CAROLINA Sen. Lindsey Graham (R) — IN FAVOR State Sen. Lee Bright (R) — OPPOSED . @libertyspot I am 100% against intervention in #Syria There are no good sides in that conflict. Lee Bright (@leebright) September 3, 2013 Nancy Mace (R) — OPPOSED Rick Weiland (D) — NO RESPONSE State Rep. Stace Nelson (R) — OPPOSED State Rep. Larry Rhoden (R) — NO RESPONSE Former Gov. Mike Rounds (R) — OPPOSED “Based on the information being made available to us at this time, I would not support a resolution authorizing the United States military to intervene as requested by the administration,” said Communications Director Mitch Krebs. “The administration has a duty to lay out a plan of action, that would include the goals and exit strategy for the United States, both short term and long term. Neither has been accomplished.” TENNESSEE Sen. Lamar Alexander (R) — SKEPTICAL “Im concerned about the consequences of a military strike in Syria, and what happens with step two, three and four after that,” Alexander said in a statement. “There may be a variety of ways, some military and some not, to show our disgust with the Syrian governments apparent use of chemical weapons against its own people. Since the presidents proposed action appears not to be for the purpose of overthrowing the Assad government, during the congressional debate I will assess whether a military strike would do more harm than good by setting off a chain of consequences that could involve American fighting men and women in another long-term Middle Eastern conflict. State Rep.

Why has the little nation of Qatar spent 3 billion dollars to support the rebels in Syria? Could it be because Qatar is the largest exporter of liquid natural gas in the world and Assad won’t let them build a natural gas pipeline through Syria? Of course. Qatar wants to install a puppet regime in Syria that will allow them to build a pipeline which will enable them to sell lots and lots of natural gas to Europe. Why is Saudi Arabia spending huge amounts of money to help the rebels and why has Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan been “jetting from covert command centers near the Syrian front lines to the Elysee Palace in Paris and the Kremlin in Moscow, seeking to undermine the Assad regime”? Well, it turns out that Saudi Arabia intends to install their own puppet government in Syria which will allow the Saudis to control the flow of energy through the region. On the other side, Russia very much prefers the Assad regime for a whole bunch of reasons. One of those reasons is that Assad is helping to block the flow of natural gas out of the Persian Gulf into Europe, thus ensuring higher profits for Gazprom. Now the United States is getting directly involved in the conflict. If the U.S. is successful in getting rid of the Assad regime, it will be good for either the Saudis or Qatar (and possibly for both), and it will be really bad for Russia. This is a strategic geopolitical conflict about natural resources, religion and money, and it really has nothing to do with chemical weapons at all. It has been common knowledge that Qatar has desperately wanted to construct a natural gas pipeline that will enable it to get natural gas to Europe for a very long time…

Defending champions GB & Ireland, who won 14-12 at Royal Aberdeen two years ago, were 2-1 up after the foursomes. But the home side won the first six of the eight singles, losing only one. The contest concludes on Sunday with a further four foursomes and 10 singles, with the first team to reach 13 points securing the trophy. Walker Cup facts and figures The Walker Cup is a biennial 10-man amateur team competition between a team composed of players from Great Britain and Ireland and the United States It will be played over two days with 18 singles matches and eight foursomes matches First played in 1922, GB & Ireland had to wait until 1938 to record their first victory. Since then they have won eight of the 43 meetings – six of those victories over the Americans having come since 1989 In the opening match at the National Golf Links of America in Southampton, Nathan Kimsey and Max Orrin were ahead on six occasions but Bobby Wyatt holed a two-foot birdie on the last to win the hole and halve the match. Matt Fitzpatrick, the 18-year-old from Sheffield who last month became the first Englishman since 1911 to win the US Amateur Championship and is the world’s top-ranked amateur, partnered Neil Raymond to victory over Jordan Niebrugge and Nathan Smith. Raymond sent an eagle attempt to three feet and Fitzpatrick calmly rolled the ball in for a one-up victory. The visitors moved further ahead when Garrick Porteous and Rhys Pugh defeated Michael Weaver and Todd White three and one. Victory was clinched at the 372-yard 17th as Welshman Pugh hit his wedge approach shot to four feet. Weaver also hit a fine wedge approach to seven feet, but White missed the birdie attempt and the GB & Ireland putt was conceded. Patrick Rodgers and Justin Thomas defeated Gavin Moynihan and Kevin Phelan two and one after taking the lead at the 15th and recording the clinching birdie at the 17th when Rodgers struck a 111-yard wedge to six feet.

Click here to find out the top S&P 500 components ordered by average analyst rating Market capitalization is an important data point for investors to keep an eye on, for various reasons. The most basic reason is that it gives a true comparison of the value attributed by the stock market to a given companys stock. Many beginning investors look at one stock trading at $10 and another trading at $20 and mistakenly think the latter company is worth twice as much that of course is a completely meaningless comparison without knowing how many shares of each company exist. But comparing market capitalization (factoring in those share counts) creates a true apples-to-apples comparison of the value of two stocks. In the case of United States Cellular Corp ( NYSE: USM ), the market cap is now $2.19B, versus Murphy Usa Incorporated ( NYSE: MUSA ) at $1.85B. Special Offer: Try OLI Premium and get reports on Splits, Buybacks, and M&A daily Another reason market capitalization is important is where it places a company in terms of its size tier in relation to peers much like the way a mid-size sedan is typically compared to other mid-size sedans (and not SUVs). This can have a direct impact on which indices will include the stock, and which mutual funds and ETFs are willing to own the stock. For instance, a mutual fund that is focused solely on Large Cap stocks may for example only be interested in those companies sized $10 billion or larger. Another illustrative example is the S&P MidCap index which essentially takes the S&P 500 index and tosses out the biggest 100 companies so as to focus solely on the 400 smaller up-and-comers (which in the right environment can outperform their larger rivals). And ETFs that directly follow an index like the S&P 500 will only own the underlying component of that index, selling companies that lose their status as an S&P 500 company, and buying companies when they are added to the index. So a companys market cap, especially in relation to other companies, carries great importance, and for this reason we at The Online Investor find value to putting together these looks at comparative market capitalization daily. At the closing bell, USM is off about 1.1%, while MUSA is trading flat on the day Friday.
