His advice on how to get rich: “The rich do not work for money. Most people do not understand that, because they’re taught to go to school and get a job for money. The rich don’t work for money. And one of the reasons for that is money is no longer money. One of the reasons for that is in 1971, President Nixon took the U.S. Dollar off the gold standard and basically screwed

    2016’s Summer of Movie Flops Is Not a Fluke, It’s the Beginning of the End

    In its first weekend, the film took in a paltry $11.2 million, only enough to rank sixth on the box office chart and well below its total budget, estimated at over $250 million including promotional expenses. There may still be redemption for the film in the foreign market, but it will be cold comfort to an industry that has seen its worst domestic summer box office in a very, very long time. This is a big turn from the summer of 2015, a hugely profitable season that had many experts seeing a turnaround in the industry (without even touching on the winter release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens).

Software engineers were offered an average of $123,000 followed by designers at $115,000 during the second quarter of 2016.

    This CEO says he was shut out by tons of investors in Silicon Valley for classifying his workers as W-2 employees

    The debate about whether "on-demand" economy workers should be classified as independent contractors (who use IRS Form 1099) or employees (who use Form W-2) rages on, but one startup CEO found that for Silicon Valley venture capitalists, there was a clear preference for 1099s. On-demand startups like ride-hailing Uber or delivery service Instacart generally rely on 1099 workers who aren't technically employees of the company. Last year, the food delivery service Munchery told Business Insider that hiring its drivers as employees instead of contractors adds an estimated 20-30% to cost per hour.

    Just What Clinton Doesn’t Need: An Attack From the Left by Jill Stein

    With Republicans gleefully attacking Hillary Clinton over the latest episode in the endless email saga and with new revelations about the coziness between the State Department and the Clinton Foundation while she was secretary of state, the last thing the Democratic nominee needed was a broadside from her left flank. In fact, Stein seems to have Clinton in her cross-hairs more often than she does Republican nominee Donald Trump. Stein’s criticism of Clinton goes beyond the email scandal.

    Tech giant Dell changes its name

    Dell Inc. has officially adopted its new name of Dell Technologies Inc. The Round Rock-based company operated by Denali Holding Inc. made the change on Thursday, according to a Friday filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. This has happened before to Austin's largest company. Michael Dell founded his venture in 1984 as PCs Limited. In 1987, he dropped that name to create Dell Computer Corp. When the company started to become more than a computer maker, it went to its simplest name: Dell Inc. That was in 2003. In May, Michael Dell first revealed the new name to represent the company that will be formed by combining Dell Inc. and Massachusetts-based EMC Corp. (NYSE: EMC). The

    Iran Lays Out Conditions For Joining OPEC Output Freeze

    In the past two weeks, Iran has rejoined the OPEC production freeze headline and jawboning fray, by making bold statements that it would be willing to work with OPEC on the recurring plan other members, mostly Venezuela, have proposed to push prices higher, namely freeze oil production (at a level which is an all-time high output for OPEC's largest member, Saudi Arabia, beyond which it can't produce even if it wanted). In other words, Iran will endorse an OPEC supply freeze as long as it can keep pumping more.

    As Apple’s ‘death cross’ turns 1, the stock heads toward a ‘golden cross’

    Apple Inc. detractors can celebrate on Friday the first anniversary of the stock’s “death cross,” only the second time in the stock’s 36-year history that the bearish chart pattern has persisted for that long. Although the current bearish technical period is on track to end within two weeks, the Apple bulls shouldn’t be too quick to celebrate. The only other time Apple’s 50-day moving average stayed below its 200-day moving average for at least a year—from Oct. 9, 1995, to Nov. 21, 1996—the ensuing bullish “golden cross” lasted less than two months, and prices resumed their tumble almost immediately.

    Halliburton leads local job cuts among Houston's largest energy companies

    Budget cuts and a declining rig count amid low oil prices have shaken up HBJ’s List of the Largest Houston-Area Energy Employers. “You get to a point where you just can’t cut anymore and still have a company,” Jankowski said. “There is a sense out there that the worst is over. Companies are trying to hold on to their employees for when things turn around.” As long as oil stays above $40 a barrel, Jankowski said he doesn’t expect to see additional major cuts. Rather, energy companies are worried about what to do when prices turn around. “There is a concern out there that we are now under-investing in oil and gas exploration,” he said. “That 18 months from now we are going to find that we are back

    Despite all of the scrutiny and anger directed at Mylan, the maker of the EpiPen allergy treatment, the company's CEO will not say firmly that the price of the drug will be lowered after increasing by about 500% in less than a decade. When asked about the matter, Mylan CEO Heather Bresch told CNBC only that she would be looking forward to working with Washington to find solutions for problems in the US healthcare system. In fact, it's reasonable to assume that — until this week, at least — Mylan would have kept increasing the price of EpiPen through 2018.

Sources tell CNBC that two financial firms, Jeffries and UBS, were working independently to find a buyer for Icahn's massive stake in the nutritional supplement company, but no buyers ever emerged. These sources also said that, as recently as late last week, Icahn was bid for a large block of his Herbalife position but chose not to sell. In addition, Icahn never offered his shares, they added.

    Love Dividends? 2 Stocks You Might Want to Buy -- The Motley Fool

There are very good reasons to love dividend stocks, including the income stream they provide investors, the fact that these income streams often grow over time, and the additional possibility of principal appreciation. But finding the right dividend stocks isn't always easy. After all, a high dividend yield doesn't automatically translate into an excellent dividend stock.

    Yemen’s Houthi Forces Claim Missile Hit On Saudi Aramco Oil Facilities

    Yemeni Shiite Houthi rebels have reportedly fired missiles targeting Saudi Aramco, allegedly damaging the oil giant’s facilities in southwestern Saudi Arabia on Friday, according to local Houthi-affiliated media, with no confirmation from Saudi officials or Aramco itself. Yemen is the site of a proxy war between Saudi Arabia and Iran, and Iranian media were the first to report on the Houthi claims coming out of Yemen. In February 2015, the Houthi rebels forced President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi to flee to Saudi Arabia, Yemen’s neighbor to the north.

    Sinopec Profit Slips as Refining Fails to Counter Oil Crash

    Net income dropped to 19.9 billion yuan ($3 billion), the Beijing-based company known as Sinopec said in a statement to the Shanghai stock exchange on Sunday. One of China’s so-called Big Three oil companies, Sinopec’s earnings compare with a 98 percent profit drop by rival PetroChina Co., the country’s biggest producer, and the first-ever half-year loss by Cnooc Ltd., its largest offshore explorer. Oil refiners typically gain when crude slumps since they benefit from cheaper supply costs, though Sinopec is still vulnerable to the price collapse as it’s the country’s third-biggest oil and gas producer.
