Lance Turner with Arkansas Business joined THV This Morning to run down Monday's top business headlines.
Syria and Jobs affecting Wall Street
It was a volatile day for the Dow on Friday; that index moved in a 200-point range on Friday.
That came as investors weighed a weak jobs report for August and possible U.S. military action in Syria.
Syria will no doubt continue to play a role in action on Wall Street this week. We'll know much more about the situation on Tuesday, when the president is scheduled to address the nation about Syria.
Awaiting iPhone Announcement
Tuesday will also be a big day in tech stocks. Apple is scheduled to showcase the newest iteration of its iPhone, including a low-cost model that may help the company sell more devices overseas.
Little Rock restaurant hit with hefty fine
A Little Rock restaurant has been hit with a $50,000 judgment after an unauthorized showing of a pay-per-view boxing match.
Brewsters 2 Cafe on Arch Street showed a Floyd Mayweather fight in 2009 but wasn't authorized to show it in its restaurant.
J&J Sports Productions Inc. of Auburn, Calif., had the pay-per-view rights for that fight, and its auditors discovered that Brewsters obtained the signal.
J&J sued and won the case.
It would have cost Brewsters $4,200 to legally show the fight.
That $50,000 judgment, meanwhile, amounted to about 25 percent of the restaurant's food sales that year.
Big Bucks on Lotto Tickets
A tiny liquor store in Stuttgart, G&B Liquor, is retaining its crown as the state's top lottery retailer, according to Arkansas Business' latest list.
G&B, located at 206 S. Park St. in Stuttgart, sold nearly $2 million worth of lottery tickets in the most recent fiscal year.
Owner Paul Le told Arkansas Business that amount is almost the same as the revenue he brings in from alcohol sales.
G&B was No. 1 on last year's list as well.
