The Spring Trend Fashion Girls Are Wearing Instead of Leggings

If there’s anything last year taught us, it’s that loungewear isn’t going anywhere. During a time where comfortable clothing is being more prioritized than ever before, fashion girls have naturally been searching for ways to make casual and cozy pieces feel as forward as possible.

(Bloomberg) — There is nothing about the finances of Blink Charging Co. that would suggest it’s one of the hottest stocks in America.It’s never posted an annual profit in its 11-year history; it warned last year it could go bankrupt; it’s losing market share, pulls in anemic revenue and has churned through management in recent years.And yet a hot stock it is. Investors have bid Blink’s share price up 3,000% over the past eight months. Only seven stocks — out of about 2,700 that are worth at least $1 billion — have risen more over that time. The reason: Blink is a green-energy company, an owner and operator of charging stations that power up electric vehicles. And if investors are certain of one thing in the mania that is sweeping through financial markets, it is that green
