What You Missed This Week
- H&M slashes prices as it can’t sell $4 billion worth of goods, while its earnings fell for a fourth consecutive quarter.
- Instagram is worth $100 billion to its parent, Facebook.

- AT&T quietly bumps its admin fees for its phone service customers by $1.23 which can rake in almost $1 billion per year.
- FDA approves the 1st weed-based medicine to treat childhood epilepsy and loss of appetite for chemotherapy patients. 
- California passed a new law that grants you the right to know what information companies collect about you, and the right to tell companies to not sell or share your data to advertisers. 
- No college degree, no problem. California, Texas and New York top the list of best states to get a tech job without a degree. 
Companies mentioned (YTD): H&M (-21%), AT&T (-17%), GW Pharma (+6%), Insys (-25%), Facebook (10%), Snapchat (-10%)
