He last worked as a delivery driver for Fields Auto Parts & Salvage in the Greenfield/Wilkinson area. Upon his deliveries, all stores and employees knew Bill by name.

Wells Fargo: These 2 Stocks Could Climb at Least 30%

After January’s sell-off, February’s first week of trading saw the stock market firmly back in bull mode. All 3 major indexes closed off the week at or at touching distance from all-time highs, as the market reacted favorably to the latest job data and the Democrats’ decision to move forward with a $1.9 trillion stimulus package.
