How many shots?
Inspired by the TikTok trend, I will be answering the question of how many shots it would take for me to hook up with various University of Miami icons.

Jim Cramer says the 'fear gauge' induced a buying opportunity in stocks
CNBC's Jim Cramer advised investors Monday to stay the course after the stock market rebounded one session after suffering back-to-back weekly losses. In the weeks after those spikes, the VIX fell double digits and the S&P 500 rallied higher. Had the VIX continued to rise alongside the S&P 500 Monday, caution would be warranted, Cramer added, because that's usually a bearish sign. "A VIX spike is what happens when the fear gauge makes a hard move up out of nowhere and then gives it away almost as fast. "That's why Sebastian's confident that a VIX spike needs to be treated as a buying opportunity."cnbc.com
