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.

Jack Ma sticks to his goals by repeating 3 questions to himself

The ability to stay the course can make or break a business — and that’s something that self-made billionaire Jack Ma knows well.

The iconic entrepreneur has led Alibaba since its inception in 1999. Under his watch, the company grew into a major tech juggernaut to make Ma one of the richest men in China.

Ma’s track record comes at a time when statistics point to a sobering reality about the survival rate of young businesses: 70 percent of start-ups fail around 20 months after raising their first funding, according to an August report by research firm CB Insights.

One of the top reasons why those companies fail, according to CB Insights, is a loss of focus.

Speaking at the annual meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, Ma shared how he remains focused in his pursuit of success.

“Whether young people, old people, ask three questions,” the billionaire told a packed conference hall in Bali, Indonesia.

“I keep asking myself these three questions,” he said. “What do you have? What do you want? What will you give up?”

Many people usually fail to ask themselves what they are willing to give up because they tend to think they don’t have much to start with, Ma said.

US Treasury yields fall as traders look ahead to data, bond auctions

U.S. government debt prices rose on Monday as traders anticipated upcoming economic data and bond auctions.

At around 5:00 a.m. ET, the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note sank to around 3.196 percent, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond fell to 3.375 percent. Bond yields move inversely to prices.

Yields have hit multi-year highs in the last few weeks as a strong U.S. economy has spurred the Federal Reserve in the direction of higher interest rates. The U.S. central bank last week released minutes that showed clear hawkish sentiment, with members confident in the Fed’s interest rate path.

On Monday, fears of rates increasing too high too fast appeared to soften. In equities, traders switched focus to earnings, with Halliburton, Hasbro, Kimberly-Clark and Polaris Industries all set to release their respective financial results before the bell.

On the data front, the Chicago Federal Reserve will release national activity index figures at 8:30 a.m. ET.

Meanwhile, $45 billion in three-month bills and $39 billion of six-month bills will be auctioned Monday at 11:30 a.m. ET.

Two 'unstable' OPEC nations may decide whether oil hits $100

“What I always worry about is the stories we should be watching, the unstable suppliers,” Croft recently told CNBC’s “Worldwide Exchange.”

RBC has warned clients that 500,000 barrels per day could be periodically lost from the two nations, and elections may bring additional unrest.

Half a million bpd represents just half a percent of daily global demand, but a disruption of that scale would have an outsize impact given the anticipated loss of roughly 1 million barrels a day of Iranian crude in the coming months. Iran’s exports are shrinking as oil buyers cut off purchases under threat of sanctions from the Trump administration.

“If you’re going to have Venezuela continuing to decline, a million barrels of Iran off the market, you can’t afford to lose another big, major producer,” Croft said.

Washington is largely depending on Saudi Arabia, Russia and a handful of other producers to keep the market supplied and prevent an oil price spike as Iran’s shipments dwindle. Traders recently sent Brent crude to nearly four-year highs above $86 a barrel, as fears that the Saudi alliance will fall short stoked concern about $100 oil.

Investment bank Barclays does not think oil prices will hit triple digits, but the outcome of Nigeria’s elections in February presents the biggest risk to that outlook, Michael Cohen, the bank’s head of energy markets research, said in a recent note to clients.

If Nigeria’s political opposition unseats President Muhammadu Buhari, Barclays analysts believe the new leadership will probably have to renegotiate a deal with militants brokered by Buhari’s government. During a political transition, militants might resume attacks on oil infrastructure, which caused Nigeria’s output to plunge by about 400,000 bpd in early 2016.

Analysts at Barclays say there’s a growing chance that the opposition can present a credible alternative to Buhari, whose popularity is waning and who spent much of his presidency seeking medical treatment overseas.

“Oil market participants ought to be more concerned about the possibility of disruptions in the Niger delta,” Cohen wrote, referring to Nigeria’s southern oil-producing region, a maze of waterways where militants staged daring attacks between 2006 and 2009 and again in recent years.

Oil theft also remains endemic in the Niger Delta. This month, a pipeline blast believed to be caused by petroleum thieves killed dozens, sparking protests among locals who blamed the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation for the explosion.

Chip company says it would be 'practically impossible' for hackers to breach Apple and Amazon

Super Micro Computer said in a letter to customers that it will review its hardware for any proof of malicious chips as alleged in a recent media report, and that such a hack would be “practically impossible.”

“Despite the lack of any proof that a malicious hardware chip exists, we are undertaking a complicated and time-consuming review to further address the article,” the company said in a letter to its customers dated Thursday.

A Bloomberg Businessweek story on Oct.4 cited 17 unidentified sources from intelligence agencies and businesses that claimed Chinese spies had placed computer chips inside equipment used by about 30 companies, including Apple and Amazon and multiple U.S. government agencies, which would give Beijing secret access to internal networks.

Super Micro denied the allegations made in the report and outlined in its letter to customers how complex such a hack would be. Super Micro stock was 3.6 percent Monday. It trades over the counter. Its common stock was suspended from the Nasdaq after the company missed several SEC filing deadlines.

Super Micro executives wrote that not only would the alleged Chinese hackers need to skirt regular testing, the unauthorized hardware would make it “highly unlikely” for their motherboards to actually function. Even if the supposed hackers were Super Micro employees rather than contractors, “no single employee or team has unrestricted access to the entire design” of their motherboards, the letter says. The letter also says it would have been difficult for companies in Super Micro’s supply chain to modify motherboards because suppliers do not have access to Super Micro’s full designs.

Apple and Amazon have both denied claims in the Bloomberg report that they had found out about the chips in 2015. Apple CEO Tim Cook strongly denied the allegations of malicious hardware in its technology in a Buzzfeed News article published Friday. He also called for Bloomberg to retract the story.

Bloomberg, however, said it stood by its report and was confident of its reporting, which was conducted over more than a year.

Security experts as well as the U.S. and U.K. authorities have said they had no knowledge of the attacks.

Reuters contributed to this report.

Euro rallies as Italian borrowing costs enjoy big drop

The euro rallied on Monday as a fall in Italian government borrowing costs after their recent surge introduced some calm into the market, while the promise of more Chinese stimulus helped offset broader political worries.

Rating agency Moody’s downgraded the Italian government’s credit rating on Friday but unexpectedly kept the outlook at stable.

That, together with comments by Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio that the government was ready to sit down with the European Union amid the ongoing row over Rome’s budget, boosted demand for Italian debt after a sharp selloff in recent weeks.

The euro has often fallen this year when Italian government bond yields have spiked higher.

The single currency rose 0.3 percent to $1.1550, hitting the day’s high and away from recent lows of $1.1433.

The dollar index dropped 0.3 percent to 95.472.

The euro was also 0.2 percent higher at 1.1487 Swiss francs, and gained 0.2 percent versus sterling to 88.26 pence.

Despite the euro’s rally, analysts said it remained at the mercy of Italian developments, with a great deal of uncertainty ahead.

“…A full diary of risk events over the next two weeks and little to argue in favour of support from the ECB (European Central Bank) in the near future, the question remains over how far the yield gap can blow out and how this could translate back into the FX market,” said Simon Derrick, chief currency strategist at BNY Mellon.

Equity markets were largely in positive territory as hopes that China’s tax cuts next year could be worth more than one percent of gross domestic product sparked a rally in Asian shares that fed across to Europe.

That helped offset geopolitical concerns about the rift between Saudi Arabia and the West over the killing of a prominent critic of the kingdom, as well as worries about Britain securing an exit deal with the EU.

Forex markets were largely quiet, although the more positive tone at the start of the week did buoy sentiment.

For the dollar, a hawkish Federal Reserve and signs of continued strength in the U.S. economy remain key drivers.

“Markets will be closely watching the release of the U.S. advance GDP number on Friday for more clarity on the direction of the U.S. dollar,” said Sim Moh Siong, currency strategist at Bank of Singapore.

The dollar rose versus the Japanese yen. The yen fetched 112.71, down 0.2 percent on the day and off a one-month high of 111.61 touched on Oct. 15.

The yen had benefited from rising risk around Brexit, the Italy budget plan and trade tensions, because investors tend to buy the Japanese currency when they are nervous.

The Canadian dollar changed hands at 1.3080 on its U.S. counterpart, within striking distance of a five-week low of 1.3132 hit on Friday on the back of weaker inflation and retail sales.

The Australian dollar, often considered a barometer for global risk appetite, traded at $0.7122, flat on the day.

Oil prices shrug off Khashoggi crisis, but US lawmakers and Turkey are turning up the heat on Saudis

The oil market has so far shrugged off rising U.S.-Saudi tensions over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi by agents of the kingdom in Turkey, but the saga appears to be far from over.

A chorus of U.S. lawmakers is questioning Saudi Arabia’s official story about the murder, raising the prospect of sanctions or a ban on weapons sales to Riyadh. A speech by Turkey’s president slated for Tuesday could give the lawmakers fresh ammunition by further undermining the kingdom’s narrative.

Just one week ago, Saudi Arabia was denying any role in Khashoggi’s disappearance and vowing to retaliate against foreign countries that sought to hold the kingdom accountable. The veiled threat raised concerns that the Saudis would exact revenge on the United States and others by cutting oil supply and allowing crude prices to bubble higher.

The Trump administration is relying on Saudi Arabia to pump more oil to offset the effect of U.S. sanctions on Iran, OPEC’s third biggest producer.

The Palace-Polo logo also appeared on three billboards in Tokyo’s Shibuya district, according to industry website Business of Fashion, with Palace founders Lev Tanju and Gareth Skewis telling the site that the collection was inspired by pieces they have worn throughout their lives. “It’s the only brand that you can wear to a board meeting, a funeral, and go to the football in — and all in the same day,” Tanju said.
