Wish Founder Jacqueline Lewis Bestows "Internships Change Lives Awards": WISH/WISE Foundation Reception Recognizes Univ. of Kentucky's WilDCats & College to Congress

WIS

WASHINGTON, Aug. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The WISE/WISE Foundation, in partnership with Washington Intern Student Housing (WISH), recognized two up and coming programs at a recent DC reception. "When the University of Kentucky identified a goal to expand and enhance its internship offerings in Washington, DC, we knew that facilitating safe, affordable, and high-quality housing would be an extraordinary benefit to our students. WISH has been an exceptional partner throughout the launch of our program," said Associate Professor Tiffany Barnes with the University of Kentucky. "The generous support and award from WISH/WiSE acknowledges not only the UK students participating in the program, but the success and importance of partnership between UK and WISH/WiSE. Their support for our program will ensure financial need is not a barrier to an internship in our nation's capital, and help our students succeed in an immersive learning experience that will prepare them for the future." Henson's College to Congress actively works towards the goal of making internships attainable to students despite their economic status or political connections. "I am very grateful for the WISE Foundation award for our work and I am proud to partner with them to make these internships more accessible for all students."

Some Wish Customers Say Cheap Makeup Gave Them Pink Eye and Other Ailments

AMZN WIS

(Bloomberg) -- When Kathleen Knight isn’t teaching belly dancing classes in Tulsa, Oklahoma, she’s often searching for bargain clothes, nail art and knickknacks from overseas merchants on Wish. But the one product Knight wishes she’d never bought from the e-commerce app is makeup. Wish, reportedly valued at more than $8 billion, has built one of the fastest-growing e-commerce businesses today by offering a dizzying range of products that sometimes sell for as much as 90 percent off regular prices. That’s despite a Danish Consumer Council advisory in April warning consumers against purchasing cosmetics from the app, which is the fifth-most-popular online store in the country. Online—on sites like Reddit and Twitter and in comments on beauty blogger YouTube videos—and echoed in interviews with several customers who spoke to Bloomberg, complaints abound of rashes, pink eye and other skin problems resulting from cosmetics purchased on Wish.

Shopping app Wish is building a retail empire on $2 sunglasses

This site uses cookies, tokens, and other third party scripts to recognize visitors of our sites and services, remember your settings and privacy choices, and — depending on your settings and privacy choices — enable us and some key partners to collect information about you so that we can improve our services and deliver relevant ads. June 11, 2018 5:00 AM PDT. If you log onto the Wish app, you can buy dress shoes for $15, a watch for $3 or a 2-terabyte flash drive for $10. Peter Szulczewski, CEO and co-founder of Wish, is hoping to turn those dirt-cheap prices into a sales empire to rival Walmart. And he has the numbers to suggest that's not such a crazy idea. He said his San Francisco startup for the first time hit over $1 billion in revenue last year and has more than doubled revenue every year since its inception eight years ago.

3 Stocks to Keep Off Your Summer Wish List

WIS

Investors have dips they can buy, while traders can pick-and-choose which stocks are best. However, both should be aware of a few summer stocks to sell. So what ones don’t we want to touch? Shares of Snap Inc (NYSE:SNAP) spiked on May 30th, nearly closing over $11. But that doesn’t do much to wash the stink off this stock. We’ve long advocated for investors to stick with Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) or Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR). In this case, FB is a best-in-breed name while Twitter is putting all the right pieces together. Is SNAP stock a “summer stock to sell?” Well, I wouldn’t step up to short it at this point and the longs that have held it on the way down will be reluctant to sell near the lows. But this is certainly one I’d want to part ways with.
