    Yelp (YELP) and Zillow (ZG) Are Both Down Big — What Should Investors Do?

    Chris Hill: Shares of Yelp down 30% on Friday after a rough third quarter report. Yelp also cut revenue guidance for the full fiscal year. And Zillow shareholders had a week that was almost as bad. Zillow lost a quarter of its market cap after the online real estate platform’s third quarter report included a similar cutting of guidance for the full fiscal year. Let’s start with Yelp, Jason. How bad is this? Jason Moser: It’s probably not as bad as the market is making it out to be.

    Meet Samantha. She saved up some money and used it to build wealth. She bought a residential house in 2010 for $300,000 and rented it for $20,000 per year.
