The U.S. has long considered Huawei a national security risk and has been suspicious that the Chinese tech company was committing espionage on behalf of the Chinese government.

No wonder 45% of people in their 50s and early 60s have little or no confidence that they'll be able to afford their health care costs once they retire, according to a survey by the University of Michigan. MEDICAL COSTS MAY BE MORE PREDICTABLE THAN YOU THINK The approach of presenting people with a huge, perhaps unattainable, figure has long bothered Jean Young, senior research associate with the Vanguard Center for Investor Research.
