Tennis star Serena Williams could see a boon from the initial public offering of the parent company of SurveyMonkey.
Williams serves as a director of the company and owns 210,000 options and another 35,000 shares.

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt has managed to stay alive in Washington, despite a laundry list of scandals and allegations of taxpayer abuse and improprieties.
Republican lawmakers shrug off the scandals as unhelpful and distracting, but by and large support the policies that Pruitt is implementing at the EPA.
