Oscar Boniek Garcia of MLS side Houston Dynamo causes headaches up the flank and could well tip the balance for theCatrachos. He was influential in the 2-2 draw the Hondurans pulled off against Mexico in San Pedro Sula in March.We have become more confident now; we are ready, the winger told FIFA.com. Other action While Mexico stutter and sputter, their arch-rivals and northern neighbours USA are oozing sunshine and confidence ahead of their trip to Costa Rica . The Americans, recently crowned CONCACAF Gold Cup champions, are in the midst of an unprecedented winning streak and sit comfortably in first place in the Hexagonal with 13 points. Even so, a game on the road in Costa Rica is a tough test for Jurgen Klinsmann. The Ticos have revenge on their minds after barely losing the first meeting with the States in blizzard-like conditions in March. Costa Rica , who sit in second place just two points off the Americans pace, have reinvented themselves as a sturdy defensive side in recent years. Theyve conceded only three goals so far, but they will have a torrid time trying to keep out a USA in attacking mood and looking for their first win in San Jose in qualifying history. Jozy Altidore, currently in the form of his life with six goals in his last four games for the national team, is a doubt after picking up a hamstring injury with club side Sunderland. Even so, captain Clint Dempsey , the speedy Eddie Johnson, and recently-returned creator Landon Donovan offer the Americans plenty of options in attack. Gold Cup runners-up Panama host Jamaica in a clash of the bottom two. Neither side can afford to slip up. Panama , on six points, are in decidedly better shape than Jamaica , who have only two, but the only remaining Caribbean participants arrive in Panama City with a new coach: German veteran Winfried Schaefer.We can not lose this game, he told FIFA.com after taking the reins of a Reggae Boyzside that have scored only once in six games.

( NYSE: SXT ) was identified as having a larger market cap than the smaller end of the S&P 500, for example Murphy Usa Incorporated ( NYSE: MUSA ), according to The Online Investor . 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 Sensient Technologies Corp. ( NYSE: SXT ), the market cap is now $2.09B, 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.

Auriemma will return as Team USA’s women’s head coach
aWeave had marriages. Weave had divorces. Itas like a family.a B-movie legend Bruce Campbell, who plays Westenas best friend, said he wasnat so sentimental, noting everything comes to an end. Still, despite his status as a horror icon thanks to the Evil Dead trilogy and other films, Campbell considers Burn Notice the most successful project heas ever been part of. aWeare going out strong, and thatas exactly how you want it,a Campbell said. aWeare all geniuses right now. Thatas how you want to go out, as a genius, not an idiot.a Consistently good writing has led to solid ratings over the years, Campbell said. Thatas led to a string of well-known guest stars swinging down to Miami for a week or two to be bad guys on the show. Past villains include Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight), John Mahoney (Frasier), Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess), Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica) and Danny Trejo (Machete), to name a few. Though not a villain, Burt Reynolds also guest-starred as a former Cold War spy. Burn Notice has averaged between four million and five million viewers since it began, with a handful of episodes topping six million viewers.
“It’s exciting to announce that Geno Auriemma is returning as head coach of the USA Women’s National Team,” said Jerry Colangelo, USA Basketball chairman. “Parity in women’s international basketball is increasing each year and so selecting a coach with international basketball experience is critical. Being able to have some continuity in the program was another very important consideration. “While those two things are important, when you add that Geno is a Hall of Fame coach who has led teams to Olympic and World Championship gold medals, and he is a coach who has won eight NCAA championships, it made the decision of having him lead our program for another four years a no-brainer. I witnessed first-hand at the London Olympics the caliber of coach he is and I feel extremely confident in Geno’s abilities to continue to build on the legacy of the USA Basketball Women’s National Team.” Auriemma led the U.S. women’s team to a gold medal at the 2012 London Games. He will become the first repeat coach for the U.S. women and will lead the program through the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. In addition to his championship resume, the 59-year-old has recorded four undefeated seasons (1994-95, 2001-02, 2008-10), and most recently led his 2012-13 Huskies to a 35-4 record, marking an NCAA record eight-consecutive 30- win seasons. “When people asked me if I was going to do this again, throughout the course of the spring and the summer, I said exactly how I was feeling. I had done it, it was great and it was unbelievable but I felt like it was time to move on to something different,” said Auriemma, who was an assistant coach to the gold medalist 2000 U.S. Olympic Team.
