Toys R Us built a kingdom and the world's biggest toy store. Then, they lost it.

The toy emporium that Charles P. Lazarus envisioned has been reduced to dusty floors and empty shelves.

Much has been said about the demise of the toy empire, which this week announced its plan to liquidate. There have been fingers pointed at corporate raiders, Amazon and big-box stores. All contributed to its undoing.

Ultimately, though, Toys R Us’ collapse is a story of loyalty run dry. The store in its early days fostered devotion from customers and toymakers. In the end, it lost hold on both.

Toys R Us’ status as the most important toy store in town left it cavalier, if cocky at times, according to conversations with former employees, executives and industry insiders, who spoke to CNBC on the condition of anonymity. It didn’t invest in its stores, even as it was adding to the fleet, leaving it vulnerable when new competition moved in.

The story begins with Lazarus, the store’s visionary who wanted the “R” written backward — an ode to childlike scrawl. Lazarus, who has been described as one of the great merchants of his time, expanded a baby furniture store he owned into a toy store. By 1978, he had created a toy superstore large enough to become a public company.

In its heyday in the 1980s and 1990s, it was the most important toy store in the country, if not the world. Its strength grew as competitors Kiddie City and Child World went out of business.

Dollar little changed after biggest weekly loss in three months

The dollar consolidated losses on Monday after posting its biggest weekly drop in more than three months last week as weak U.S. data undercut expectations of more interest rate increases in the world’s biggest economy.

Widening interest rate differentials between the United States and the rest of the world, driven by a confident U.S. Federal Reserve, has fuelled an unlikely dollar rally this year. But weak data in recent weeks has clouded the currency’s prospects for next year.

U.S. non-farm payrolls increased by 155,000 jobs last month, below a median forecast of 200,000 jobs, and the wage increase was weaker than expected, even though its annual rise remained near the highest level in almost a decade.

Apart from weak data, some Fed policymakers have struck a cautious tone about the economic outlook, possibly flagging a turning point in its monetary policy and lowering the expectations of U.S. rate hikes priced into money markets.

Futures markets are now pricing in only a 44 percent chance of a U.S. rate increase next year compared with nearly 80 percent last Monday as the U.S. bond yield curve has flattened.

“Fed fund expectations are dropping like a stone and that is a big obstacle for the dollar, though there is plenty of event risk out there this week that will give plenty of thought for dollar bears,” said Ulrich Leuchtmann, an FX strategist at Commerzbank in Frankfurt.

Against a basket of currencies, the dollar was flat after falling 0.8 percent last week, its biggest weekly drop since late August.

The euro led gains, rising 0.34 percent at $1.1470 though market traders said currency markets will be in a wait-and-watch mode.

French President Emmanuel Macron will address the country at 2000 Paris time (1900 GMT) on Monday as he seeks to “yellow vest” anti-government protesters that have wreaked havoc in Paris during the weekend.

In London, Theresa May faces an internal revolt against her Brexit deal before a vote in the parliament on Tuesday. May plans to push ahead with the vote, but senior lawmakers in her own party put pressure on her to go back to Brussels and seek a better offer.

A rejection could throw plans for Britain’s exit into turmoil and leave her own political future hanging in the balance. Against the dollar, the British pound was flat at $1.2720.

Warren Buffett on the biggest puzzle for investors: Intrinsic value

The concept of intrinsic value came up earlier this year when Buffett made the decision to change his trigger for buying back Berkshire shares from a quantifiable discount to the company’s book value (1.2 times book value) to a discount to intrinsic value. In moving back to monitoring intrinsic value, Buffett invoked the method also used by J.P. Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon.

Warren Buffett on the biggest puzzle for investors: Intrinsic value

The concept of intrinsic value came up earlier this year when Buffett made the decision to change his trigger for buying back Berkshire shares from a quantifiable discount to the company’s book value (1.2 times book value) to a discount to intrinsic value. In moving back to monitoring intrinsic value, Buffett invoked the method also used by J.P. Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon.

As buybacks across the corporate sector continue to reach new records, it becomes more questionable whether all of these companies are basing their share repurchases on a valuation metric that uncovers a discount in a stock’s trading price to intrinsic value — or are just buying back stock to keep shareholders happy and prop up earnings. Jamie Dimon said on Tuesday at a Goldman Sachs conference that buying back stock when market prices are high is not a wise idea, and companies should be reinvesting in the business instead.

Now the issue of valuation isn’t limited to buyback analysis. As many sectors within the S&P 500, including one of Buffett’s favorites (banking) are in correction, every investor should be questioning the value of what they own in their stock portfolio.

Buffett recently bought $4 billion worth of J.P. Morgan, a bank stock that has since entered a correction, and if he performed his analysis right, he might be buying more of it now. So no one should be making rash decisions, and Buffett reminds the fearful that the stock market is there to serve investors, not instruct them (echoing Ben Graham’s maxim).

But having conviction in the staying power of your market bets becomes much more difficult when everything stops going up in unison. As Buffett famously wrote in an early ’90s annual letter and said at the 1994 shareholder meeting, “You don’t find out who has been swimming naked until the tide goes out.”

Over the years, in annual Berkshire Hathaway shareholder meeting Q&As and in annual letters, Buffett has made clear — if in a roundabout way — just how difficult a concept intrinsic value is to explain. At the 1998 meeting, Buffett described it as “the present value of the stream of cash that’s going to be generated by any financial asset between now and doomsday. And that’s easy to say and impossible to figure.”

Maybe that is why he has written that “what counts for most people in investing is not how much they know, but rather how realistically they define what they don’t know.” That may also explain why he added, “An investor needs to do very few things right as long as he or she avoids big mistakes.”

Japan could see a $3.5 billion boost for hosting 2019’s biggest sporting event

The Rugby Union World Cup is billed as the world’s third-largest global sporting event, behind the Olympics and soccer World Cup, due to its participating nations, ticket sales and television audience. “We’ve had some independent studies done and they predict that in British pounds there will be about £2.79 billion ($3.5 billion) of increased economic activity around the Rugby World Cup.” Rugby World Cup Organizing Committee CEO Akira Shimazu exclusively told CNBC ahead of Japan’s November inter

Japan could see a $3.5 billion boost for hosting 2019's biggest sporting event

Japan will be the first Asian country to host the Rugby Union World Cup in 2019 and its organizing committee has promised the tournament will be a uniquely Japanese event.

With the Olympics and Paralympics to come in 2020, officials feel the country is entering its “golden sporting years.”

The Rugby Union World Cup is billed as the world’s third-largest global sporting event, behind the Olympics and soccer World Cup, due to its participating nations, ticket sales and television audience.

Historically it has been hosted in traditional rugby hotspots, not least the 2015 version in England and in New Zealand four years earlier. Twelve stadiums across Japan will host the 43-day tournament beginning on September 20, 2019, and a tourism boom is being predicted by organizers, with 70 percent of the 2.5 million ticket requests received so far coming from outside of Japan.

“We’ve had some independent studies done and they predict that in British pounds there will be about £2.79 billion ($3.5 billion) of increased economic activity around the Rugby World Cup.” Rugby World Cup Organizing Committee CEO Akira Shimazu exclusively told CNBC ahead of Japan’s November international against England.

By contrast, 2018’s soccer World Cup in Russia was predicted to have almost ten times that amount of economic impact on the host country.

“There is a short space of time between the events of the Rugby World Cup and then the Olympic and Paralympic Games, but in some ways that can be beneficial,” Shimazu said.

Rugby Union has gained in popularity over the past decade in Japan with over 120,000 registered players in the country. Technology is expected to play a key role in this World Cup, including state-of-the-art facial recognition technology to be used as added security at matches, which will also feature at the Olympics and Paralympics in 2020.

“There are many merits of having those two events so close to each other,” Shimazu said. “France will have the same issues with the next Rugby World Cup and then the Olympics in Paris, so we’re setting the bar very high for them, so they can carry on and follow our lead.”

The world's biggest shopping holiday is in China — not the US. Here's how Singles Day became No. 1

Making a billion dollars in sales in the first 90 seconds of a 24-hour shopping event sounds like a dream come true for many retailers — and Chinese tech giant Alibaba managed to do just that.

At this year’s edition of Singles Day on November 11, the company made $30.8 billion worth of sales across the e-commerce giant’s various platforms in 24 hours.

In Chinese currency terms, the gross merchandise value was a 27 percent jump from last year. While significant, that growth was smaller than the 39 percent year-on-year rise recorded in 2017.

U.S. e-commerce titan Amazon also saw its sales surge to historic highs this year, recording $7.9 billion of online sales on Cyber Monday, according to research firm Adobe Analytics. That marked a 19.3 percent increase from e-commerce sales a year ago.

In addition, the company pulled in a record $6.22 billion in online sales on Black Friday, an 23.6 percent increase from a year ago.

The success of the two tech titans in e-commerce seems antithetical to the wave of retailers filing for bankruptcy or closing down stores in the U.S., such as iconic American retailer Sears and household name Toys R Us.

In fact, retail store closures in the United States hit a record high in 2017. Research firm CB Insights listed at least 57 major retailers in the U.S. which have gone bankrupt since 2015, including brick-and-mortar retailers like Nine West and Mattress Firm, and even one online fashion retailer Nasty Gal.

Volkswagen and Tesco to build UK's biggest free car-charging network

German auto firm Volkswagen and U.K. grocer Tesco have teamed up to build the largest free electric car charging network in Britain.

The two firms announced Friday that over the next three years they will install nearly 2,500 charging points in the parking lots of 627 Tesco stores across the United Kingdom.

Volkswagen U.K. board member Mike Orford told CNBC by phone that his company wants to encourage people towards electric vehicle ownership by removing anxieties about when and where a car can be charged.

“People that live in a flat who might want an electric car can’t charge at home as they have to park in the street. If they say, ‘Actually, I know I go to Tesco twice a week for a shop,’ then this suddenly feels quite viable,” he said.

Figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) have revealed that more than 120,000 ‘alternatively fueled vehicles’ have been registered in the UK in 2018 — a 22 per cent increase on the same period last year.

Installed by the charging network operator Pod Point, customers at larger Tesco sites will be able to choose between a free 7-kilowatt (kw) charger or a pay-as-you go rapid charge 50 kw option.

Orford said people wouldn’t need to be a Tesco customer to make use of the charge points, but the parking bays would be monitored in the same way as disabled or “mother and baby” spots.

Volkswagen hopes the use of the bays, which should be compatible with most makes of electric cars, will become habitual to shoppers.

“It is a bit like plugging in your mobile phone, most of us don’t wait until the battery is flat,” Orford said, before adding, “People can get a quick 10-minute charge while just buying a pint of milk.”

The cost is being borne by both Volkswagen and Tesco, but beyond stating that it is a “multi-million pound venture” neither company is revealing the expected outlay.

Volkswagen Group has said its VW brand should sell a million electric cars a year by 2025. The auto group announced earlier this month it would spend almost 44 billion euros ($50 billion) on developing electric cars, autonomous driving and new mobility services by 2023.

On Wednesday, Volkswagen confirmed it is deciding where to locate a new factory in North America to build electric vehicles for the U.S. market.
