    A gun law case before the US Supreme Court has Americans up in arms

    The US Supreme Court will soon consider the right to bear arms, something it hasn't done for nearly a decade. The case in question has pitted New York City against the New York State Pistol and Rifle Association over a law on transporting guns. The twist here is that New York City, and its many legal allies, say the case is actually moot.

    3 Reasons Lyft Is a Better Buy Than Uber

    The market still seems confused about Lyft (NASDAQ: LYFT) and Uber Technologies (NYSE: UBER), the ridesharing rivals that went public earlier this year. Not only are both stocks trading (at the time of this writing) down about 20% from the prices at their initial public offerings -- an underwhelming showing considering that 2019 has been a bumper year for IPOs -- but strangely, the stocks often move in tandem. The market seems to believe that what's good for one is good for the other and the same for the bad things, even though the two are cutthroat competitors.

    5 Proven Ways to Boost Your Retirement Income

    Pay off your debts A great way to enjoy more income in retirement is not to be sending off payments on loans you're carrying. You definitely need to pay off any high-interest-rate debt you have, such as from credit cards, as soon as possible -- no matter how close or far you are from retirement. It can also be good to pay off other debts, such as a car loan.

    Leaked Brexit document shows the UK government anticipates a no-deal, with dire consequences

    A Brexit preparation document leaked to the Sunday Times (paywall) reveals a government bracing for the worst. The document, which appears to have been written just this month by the Cabinet Office and marked “official-sensitive,” lists key planning assumptions and details the likely repercussions of a no-deal Brexit. The report is one of the first times that the government has shown that it assumes a no-deal Brexit.

    These 16 money wasters are why so many Americans can’t save for retirement

    From the lofty perch of old age, and after a lifetime of thrift, I declare that I am qualified to comment on how not to waste money. We've all heard the reports: Most Americans live paycheck to paycheck, a large number can't come up with $400 for an emergency, and there's no money to save for retirement and other goals. Most of that data comes from surveys where people are, in effect, saying they don't have enough income.

    3 Dividend Stocks Ideal for Retirees

    In an ideal world, retirement would be a period of relaxation and relatively stress-free living. Some individuals find retirement to be more expensive, stressful, or boring than they envisioned during their working years. One way to make retirement a little more enjoyable is to make your nest egg go further than you thought possible -- and one way to do that is by owning stable, blue-chip dividend stocks.

    Don't Be Tempted by Macy's Big Dividend Yield

    Macy's reaffirmed its guidance for roughly flat sales growth for the full year but slashed its EPS guidance from $3.05-$3.25 to $2.85-$3.05 -- which would equal a 27% to 32% drop from 2018. Wall Street had expected a 27% decline. Macy's big post-earnings drop reduced its forward P/E to 6 and boosted its dividend yield to 8%.

    I Lost $34,000 This Week: Here's What I'm Doing About It

    That's because I have a fundamental understanding that stocks will almost certainly prove to be the best way to grow my wealth over the next two-plus decades, and the only way to attain those returns is to ride out volatility without letting fear take the reins and cause me to sell at the worst time: when my portfolio has lost value. To the contrary, I've taken advantage of these sell-offs and been a buyer over the past month. Moreover, I have measurable evidence that this strategy works.

    Copy insiders and buy these stocks — because they see no recession looming

    I recently told subscribers of my stock letter Brush Up on Stocks to get more bullish on stocks because of robust insider buying in cyclical sectors like tech, banks, industrials, chemicals, airlines, autos, hotels, energy, mining, and brokerage and investment companies. Insiders would definitely not be doing this if — like Gundlach — they saw a recession on the way. Instead, they'd be on a buyer's strike, or at best they'd favor utilities or consumer non-discretionary companies.

    3 Dividend Stocks That Should Pay You the Rest of Your Life

    There's a balance in the dividend space between high yields and dividend sustainability. In the end, it's generally more important to find stocks that can keep paying -- and hopefully increasing -- their dividends than to stretch for high yields that are ephemeral because they are backed by dividends that are likely to get cut. If you want to add a few good dividend names to your portfolio, these three Motley Fool contributors think you'll want to look at biotech Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ: GILD), telecom giant Verizon (NYSE: VZ), and consumer products specialist Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG).

    10 Marijuana Stocks Wall Street Thinks Will Double

MedMen Enterprises: 196% upside You might be surprised to learn that among the dozens of well-known pot stocks to choose from, upscale dispensary operator MedMen Enterprises (OTC: MMNFF) is furthest from Wall Street's price target, which implies an almost tripling in value. MedMen certainly has a knack for normalizing the cannabis buying experience, is set to entrench itself in big markets like California and Florida, and will double its state-based reach when its acquisition of PharmaCann closes.

    U.S. Oil Export Race Accelerates Even as One Project Makes Leap

    Over a year, more than 10 projects have been proposed for terminals that, combined, will be able to load 8 million barrels a day onto very large crude carriers, or VLCCs. Enterprise Products Partners LP was first to announce a final investment decision on its Sea Port Oil Terminal late last month, and last week the company said it expects to receive regulatory approval in the first half of 2020, followed by two years of construction. The new terminals should help propel U.S. crude exports to fresh records as oil continues to flow from American shale patches.

    How to prevent a fascist takeover: Lessons from the Nazi party’s rise to power

    International business scholars are increasingly concerned with the possibility that economic nationalism will lead to deglobalization, reversing decades of economic growth. This has spurred new debates on the potential consequences of economic nationalism and also examinations of the political processes that cause shifts from liberal democracies to more authoritarian governments. Hitler's ascent involves conservative politicians sharing power with an extremist party and being outmanoeuvred.

    Don't Waste Your Money on Penny Stocks: These 3 Stocks Are Better Buys

    There's something fundamentally appealing about penny stocks: the alluring combination of paying an incredibly low share price for an unbelievably high reward is every investor's dream. Unfortunately, for many penny stocks, that dream never becomes a reality. In fact, penny stocks are dangerous places for your money, even if you're the kind of investor who doesn't mind -- or actually enjoys -- high-risk, speculative investments.
