    Compound interest can help you get rich or go broke — here's how

    First of all, compound interest is different from simple interest. Simple interest is a fixed rate over time, based on the initial amount you've invested. If you've deposited $100 into a savings account with a 5 percent interest rate, all you need to do is multiply your principal by the interest rate, and then the amount of time you expect to keep that money in the account.

    Will Your Retirement Income Be Enough?

    There are many "what ifs," but the math is still the math: if you plan on needing a lot more than $40,000 from your retirement nest egg, then the probability of a successful retirement on $1 million is not good. "If you've only saved $1 million and are withdrawing 4% or more in retirement, you are most likely tempted to expose your accounts to more risk to make up for the lack of savings. With more exposure to a volatile market, there is a greater chance your retirement accounts will incur substantial losses during market corrections," says Carlos Dias Jr., wealth manager, Excel Tax & Wealth Group, Lake Mary, Fla.

    Tall chip tale? Huawei's backup plans leave experts unconvinced

    SAN FRANCISCO/HONG KONG (Reuters) - Chip experts are calling out Huawei for its claims that it could ensure a steady supply chain without U.S. help, saying the technology the Chinese telecoms network gear maker buys from American companies would be "hard to replace". The Trump administration officially added Huawei to a trade blacklist on Thursday, enacting restrictions that will make it difficult for the tech giant to do business with American firms, in its latest broadside against the company that U.S. officials have labeled a threat to national security. The head of Huawei's HiSilicon chip division on Friday shrugged off concerns about disruptions to supply, saying it has long been preparing for this kind of "extreme scenario".

The $49 billion merger furthered Luxottica's entrance into all facets of eyewear, from design, to manufacturing, to retail. Though the merger was approved by several major international trade commissions, including the U.S.' FTC, some antitrust experts question if the move will help consumers, or entrench the industry standard in which glasses cost hundreds of dollars.

    Tesla shares plummet after Elon Musk promises 'hardcore' cost-cutting

    Shares of Palo Alto-based Tesla plunged 7.5 percent today to a new two-year low, after CEO Elon Musk promised employees that the company would undergo “hardcore” cost-cutting measures to stay solvent. In a new all-hands memo, Musk said he'd order every team to examine every payment, have CFO Zach Kirkhorn review and sign every payment sheet, and said he'd personally review every tenth page, according to electric vehicle news site Electrek, which obtained a copy of the memo. “This is hardcore, but it is the only way for Tesla to become financially sustainable and succeed in our goal of helping make the world environmentally sustainable,” Musk wrote.

    Retirement Plan Tax Form 8606: When To File

    The tax Form 8606 has become increasingly important thanks to the popularity of the Roth IRA and the rollover eligibility of after-tax assets from qualified plans. Basically, you must file Form 8606 for every year you contribute after-tax amounts (non-deductible IRA contribution) to your Traditional IRA, and every year you receive a distribution from your IRA as long as you have after-tax amounts, including rollovers of after-tax amounts from qualified plans,  in any of your traditional, SEP or SIMPLE IRAs. If a taxpayer does not claim a deduction of his or her Traditional IRA contribution, it is usually either because he or she is not eligible, or simply prefers not to do so.

    The urgency of the shift to electric cars isn't just about climate change

    In 2017, the European Commission proposed reducing CO2 emissions for new cars and vans by 30% in 2030, compared with levels in 2021. The aggressive rules are seen, in part, as an attempt to regain credibility after regulators failed to prevent Volkswagen and other automakers from cheating existing standards. Bolloré said he was surprised by the backlash on emissions rules following the “dieselgate” scandal: Volkswagen admitted in 2015 that software was used to cheat on pollution tests for as many as 11 million of its diesel vehicles.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is seeking to keep people like Kuzuno employed longer so they can pitch into the tax base and ease the burden on government spending, as the country copes with having the world's fastest aging population.

    Bank Of America: $90 Brent May Be Around Corner

    Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BofAML) warns that Brent crude oil could reach $90 per barrel stemming the new IMO rules regarding shipping fuels and a weaker dollar courtesy of a de-escalation in the US/China trade war, Reuters reported on Friday. Also pushing up prices could be the weakening dollar should the trade war between China and the United States simmer down. In February, BofAML estimated that Brent crude would be trading within the $50 to $70 per barrel band through 2024, with prices “anchored” around $60 per barrel, citing rising US shale supplies and slowing oil demand growth.
