• Starbucks' Challenges and Investment Opportunities

    In this insightful clip of Market Mondays, hosts Rashad Bilal, Troy Millings, and Ian Dunlap dive deep into the recent challenges faced by Starbucks. From a significant stock decline, dropping from $126 in 2021 to approximately $73, to cultural backlashes and operational missteps, they cover everything influencing Starbucks' current market position. They also discuss the potential role of Howard Schultz in reviving the brand and what it might take for Starbucks to regain its competitive edge.


    As Starbucks faces backlash from various communities and reported conflicts in the Middle East affecting their sales and brand image, the discussion also touches upon broader themes of boycotting and corporate responsibility. Moreover, they explore how Starbucks' response to these issues and its attempt to enhance customer service, like improving the mobile order and rewards system, could be pivotal.


    The clip doesn't just highlight problems but also deliberates on whether these dips in performance represent a buying opportunity for investors. With the price point nearing $63, Rashad notably shifts from critique to potential endorsement, provided the company addresses its shortcomings.


    Join us on Market Mondays as we unravel whether Starbucks can blend its way back to the top amidst the brewing troubles and if it's the right time for investors to stock up.

  • Stephen A. Smith on The Evolution of College Sports, NIL, and Coaching Headaches

    In this riveting discussion, EYL hosts Rashad Bilal and Troy Millings delve into the transformative landscape of college sports alongside well-known sports analyst Stephen A. Smith. They tackle the emergence of the transfer portal, likening it to a form of free agency with the added intrigue of no binding contracts allowing athletes to switch teams freely. The conversation also covers the nuanced dynamics behind NIL (Name, Image, and Likeness) collectives where wealthy boosters band together to financially support players, fundamentally altering the collegiate athletics ecosystem.


    Stephen A. Smith passionately voices his stance on the decades-long exploitation of college athletes and the disparity between universities' profits versus what the athletes actually receive. He highlights past grievances, such as the controversies involving Chris Webber and the Fab Five Michigan team, to underscore the rigid and often unfair constraints placed upon student-athletes concerning compensation and benefits.


    Further, Smith points to coaching legends like Nick Saban and their retirement decisions being influenced by the growing complexities and control shifts induced by NIL rules and the transfer portal. As the hosts and Smith dissect the impact on prominent coaches and storied programs, they debate the definition of a "blue blood" program and ponder the future of college basketball's traditional powerhouses in light of these sweeping changes.


    The EYL Medium #1 - Smith.mp4 episode doesn't hold back in dissecting the contemporary challenges faced in college sports, as well as the groundbreaking shifts in revenue, recruitment, and the rise of modern-day coaching strategies that embrace these changes. It's an enlightening conversation that speaks volumes to sports and business enthusiasts alike, providing insights into the ongoing evolution of the NCAA's athletic and financial landscapes.


    Tune in to this compelling episode of EYL with the expertise of Stephen A. Smith, as the hosts uncover the intricacies of college sports and what it means for the future of programs, players, and coaches in this dynamic era.
