How to use stake in a sentence?

  1. John McCain:

    Whatever allusions anyone may have had that our national security was not at stake in the conflict in Iraq and Syria or that ISIL was somehow contained, these attacks make it clear that ISIL’s threat against our homeland is real, direct and growing.

  2. Ric Ronge:

    Given Glasenberg's reputation and large personal stake in Glencore, the company is unlikely to offer meaningfully over what the market believes, rightly or wrongly, Rio is worth, but I think it is foolish to underestimate Glencore, given the success of the company to date.

  3. Lin Feng:

    We are now focusing on Europe-bound deals and having U.S. deals on hold. The trade war between China and U.S., if not short-term, will be a mid-term thing and will take some time to conclude, opportunities in the U.S. will be more small investments, or joint ventures in China. It will definitely hurt significant minority stake acquisitions, but on the other hand it may help targets in Europe and Israel.

  4. Kaillie Humphries:

    A lot is at stake. For me personally. My entire career is at stake, who I am personally. I'm risking everything to be in this position, it's not something I take lightly. So yeah, for me personally there's a lot at stake.

  5. Mike Donilon:

    The country knows what's at stake. We have a president who doesn't want to talk about the central issue in this campaign right now, he doesn't want to talk about the coronavirus and his reaction to it. He's desperate to try to get any form of distraction from it.
