We Think Forma Therapeutics Holdings (NASDAQ:FMTX) Can Afford To Drive Business Growth

We can readily understand why investors are attracted to unprofitable companies. For example, although software-as-a-service business Salesforce.com lost money for years while it grew recurring revenue, if you held shares since 2005, you’d have done very well indeed. Nonetheless, only a fool would ignore the risk that a loss making company burns through its cash too quickly.

So, the natural question for Forma Therapeutics Holdings (NASDAQ:FMTX) shareholders is whether they should be concerned by its rate of cash burn. In this report, we will consider the company’s annual negative free cash flow, henceforth referring to it as the ‘cash burn’. We’ll start by comparing its cash burn with its cash reserves in order to calculate its cash runway.

The claim: Nike stated the company can afford to lose customers who support Trump

Misinformation about the political stances of major corporations — like Pepsi and Wendy’s — has spread online this summer, along with calls to boycott the companies.

Recent posts on Facebook have focused on athletic apparel giant Nike.

Users claim that the company stated that it “can afford” to lose the business of customers who support President Donald Trump.

“NIKE has stated, ‘We’re a $76 Billion dollar company that can afford to let go of all ‘Make America Great Again’ customers,” one post reads, accompanied by the hashtag #bye.

The user behind the post did not respond to request from USA TODAY for comment.

Neighborhood shops used to think it wasn’t worth the hassle to sell online. Now they can’t afford to ignore it.

Two years ago, Esther Fishman shut down her Lincoln Park-area clothing and gifts shop’s online store.

It seemed like the right call until this spring.

When the coronavirus pandemic forced all but essential retail stores to close, Art Effect rushed to get its online store back in business. Fishman has since hired a company to build a new, easier-to-use site.

Small neighborhood retailers used to compete with Amazon by catering to local shoppers who enjoy browsing in person. That’s still true — but in the six months since the pandemic began, a growing number are venturing onto Amazon’s turf.

State businesses can’t afford health care proposals | Letters

Regarding how to improve our country’s health care system, we must consider how any proposal would affect small businesses and the millions of Americans they employ. As a small business owner, I know that a new government-controlled health insurance system like Medicare for All or the public option is absolutely the wrong way to go. Instead, we must build on what works within our current health care system while making care more affordable.

Medicare for All would increase federal spending by $32 trillion in its first decade alone resulting in huge tax hikes on hardworking Americans.

Even the supposed “moderate” alternative of the public option would result higher costs for taxpayers. Middle-class Americans, including small business owners, cannot afford a steep increase in costs, especially now.

Not only would the public option or Medicare for All cost us more, research shows that either system would lead to lower-quality care and
