    Police Took Suspect's Guns, Dad Gave Them Back: The Latest on the Nashville Waffle House Mass Shooting

After an investigation by police in Illinois and the FBI, authorities removed four guns from 29-year-old Travis Reinking’s home and gave them to his father. Reinking is still on the run after a heroic customer at the Waffle House confronted him when he stopped to reload his weapon.

    The Trump stock market looks a lot like Reagan's, and that may not be a good thing

    Reagan's stock market gives clues for the Dow's next move: Acampora    2:27 PM ET Fri, 20 April 2018 | 01:53 Donald Trump, like Ronald Reagan before him, is an outside-the-beltway president. That recently prompted longtime market watcher Ralph Acampora to investigate whether the two had anything else in common. What he found could be a warning to the stock market. "Ronald Reagan had a six-month honeymoon," Acampora, director of technical research at Altaira Capital Partners, told CNBC's "Futures Now" last week. "The percentage gain was roughly about 10 percent." When Reagan was sworn into office on Jan. 20, 1981, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was trading at around 950. The index, which at

    Saudi Arabia’s $100 Oil Dilemma

    Saudi Arabia is rumored to want oil prices at $100 per barrel, but if prices rise that high, it could sow the seeds of the next downturn. Saudi officials want more revenues for their budget and a higher oil price to bolster the valuation of the Aramco IPO. As Liam Denning of Bloomberg Gadfly points out, in the past decade, while oil prices have surpassed $100 per barrel for periods of time, they didn’t stay there for very long.

    Southwest Cancels 40 Flights as It Works to Inspect Plane Engines After Deadly Explosion

    Southwest Airlines cancelled about 40 flights Sunday as the airline stepped up efforts to inspect the engines of its Boeing 737 fleet on the heels of last week’s deadly engine explosion on Flight 1380. The airline voluntarily announced inspections of engines in the CFM56 family – which powers nearly all of Southwest’s fleet – on Tuesday, after a passenger died when she was partially sucked out of an aircraft window that had been shattered in by the engine blast. Inspectors now believe that the CFM56-7B jet engine failure occurred when one of the engine’s fan blades broke off and came loose.

    There's More to SunPower's U.S. Expansion Than Meets the Eye

    For SunPower, the real payoff from this deal won't derive from gaining SolarWorld's manufacturing plant -- the key benefit will come if it wins an exclusion from tariffs for its high-efficiency solar cells and panels, which are made in Asia. SunPower is the only global manufacturer that produces interdigitated back contact (IBC) solar cells at scale, and no U.S. manufacturers use the technology today.

    In fact, a good 25% of employed baby boomers think they'll retire prior to age 65, according to new data from the Insured Retirement Institute.

    Half of Americans Aren’t Saving for Retirement. Here’s How to Do Better

    New data tells us that 49% of Americans actively are saving for retirement -- which means that half the workforce is at risk of retiring broke. Worse yet, only 16% of workers are very confident that they'll have enough in their nest eggs to cover their future expenses. If your retirement savings are non-existent, it's time to play around with your expenses and start cutting corners to free up more cash.

    Mobius says there’s a 30% correction coming for U.S. stocks

    Mark Mobius, the 81-year-old investment guru, believes the U.S. stock market is set for a 30% correction that would essentially wipe out the gains of the last two years. The renowned fund manager, who left Franklin Templeton, the American investment house, after more than 30 years in January, said “all the indicators” point to a large fall in the S&P 500 SPX, -0.85%  and the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -0.82%  . “I can see a 30% drop,” said Mobius, who launched one of the world’s first emerging market funds. “When consumer confidence is at an all time high, as it is in the U.S., that is not a good sign. “The market looks to me to be waiting for a trigger that will cause it to tumble.

    Over the last two years, it's been clear Walmart (NYSE: WMT) is positioning itself as a competitor to Amazon. After paying $3.3 billion for e-commerce provider Jet.com in 2016, Walmart has increasingly encroached on Amazon's turf by attempting to lure Amazon's core consumer base, move into new industries, and replicate Amazon's disruption-focused mindset. With all the excitement about its digital changes, Walmart's core terrestrial operations may have flown under the radar.

    Stay Away From All Forms of Romaine Lettuce, CDC Warns

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is warning customers to stay away from all forms of romaine lettuce, as the scope of its investigation into an E. coli outbreak grows. The CDC had originally traced the outbreak -- which has sickened at least 53 people across 16 states -- specifically to chopped romaine lettuce grown in the Yuma, Ariz., region. An update issued on Friday, however, says customers should also avoid whole heads and hearts of romaine, in addition to chopped lettuce, unless they can determine that it was not grown in Yuma.

    T-Mobile’s wild ride might finally be slowing down

    Since hiring CEO John Legere in 2012 and debuting its new Uncarrier strategy, T-Mobile has turned into the kind of success story that gets MBA professors hot under the collar. T-Mobile turned its scrappy underdog status into a marketing plug, and by adding the iPhone to its lineup and investing heavily in network infrastructure, the company’s product is now on par with AT&T and Verizon. It’s not just the network, either — T-Mobile’s aggressive pricing and impressive customer loyalty has driven its new customer subscriptions to a point where it’s challenging AT&T and Verizon, and it’s leaving Sprint in the rear-view mirror.
