With no deal in sight, tariffs rising and even lower growth on the horizon, Chinese stocks have continued to sink over the last week or so. But this could be an interesting opportunity for long-term investors. China continues to dominate on the world stage and is arguably one of the most important economies.
The halt on China's imports of wastepaper and plastic that has disrupted U.S. recycling programs has also spurred investment in American plants that process recyclables. U.S. paper mills are expanding capacity to take advantage of a glut of cheap scrap. Some facilities that previously exported plastic or metal to China have retooled so they can process it themselves.

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.
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.
The S&P 500 clawed its way back from the worst of May's losses and turning positive for the week as of Thursday's close. Despite the reprieve, NorthmanTrader founder Sven Henrich said Thursday the underlying technicals tell a different story. "When we look at the charts, we have to recognize that markets may be in the process of repeating some of the sins of the past that we saw last year," Henrich said on CNBC's " Trading Nation ." "We had an incredibly powerful rally, especially on the [Nasdaq 100] that created rising wedge patterns.
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 20-year-old previously told MarketWatch that the popular cryptocurrency was “dead”, and he still thinks the cryptocurrency market has problems that need to be solved.

In the Hamptons, the chosen summer destination for the country's elite, homes are being sold for lower prices and properties are staying on the market for months at a time, according to a report. The New York Times reported that the housing market in the coveted Long Island, N.Y., area was “in a rut.” Home prices were said to be down.

In 2017, Italian eyewear behemoth Luxottica announced a merger with Essilor, a French lenses manufacturer. 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.
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.

As the CFO delivered Q2 guidance, basically in line with Wall Street expectations, the company announced it would no longer be giving guidance beyond the current quarter. Nvidia went on to add that the second half of the year should be stronger, which is built into current Wall Street expectations and the company sees it playing out in line with their expectations. The call did go from upbeat to more reserved when the company spoke about discontinuing year-long guidance.
Stocks did a good job bouncing off their morning lows, but how long can bulls keep that action up? The market would do a whole lot better if investors didn't have to worry about a tweet from the president sending a ripple through Chinese and U.S. trade negotiations, but that's the market we have right now. Let's look at some top stock trades to get started on next week.
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.
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.

If you like Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) stock or the shares of other American-automotive icons like General Motors (NYSE:GM) or Fiat Chrysler (NYSE:FCAU), you should avoid buying them anyway. Since the start of this year, Ford stock has gained 32%, which is remarkable.
Kuzuno, 78, is now three years into work at the small plant in Warabi, where she helps launder and package steamed hand-towels given to customers at restaurants. This could be Japan's new normal, with people working into their 70s and beyond, adding a new facet to its reputation as a nation of workaholics. 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 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.
