    The thought of losing your life savings to hackers can be terrifying — and it's why two of Houston financial adviser Michelle Gessner's clients didn't want to consolidate their retirement assets, even if the move would be financially savvy. “The question is real and understandable,” Gessner said. Gessner was able to talk them through their fears, and showed them the custodians she works with — such as Fidelity, TD Ameritrade (AMTD) and Schwab (SCHW) — all guarantee protection in the event of a hack.

    While we wait for Tesla's earnings report, here's how its profit per vehicle compares

    The electric carmaker's stock has more than doubled since Tesla's previous quarterly report on Oct. 23, when it posted a surprise profit that was viewed as a milestone for the company. Still, a Reuters analysis of Tesla's and other luxury carmakers' operating profit per vehicle — a metric closely watched by auto executives — shows Tesla still has a long way to go before reaching the steady profits of rivals Porsche, BMW and Mercedes-Benz. At an average of roughly $17,750 per vehicle, operating profit at luxury carmaker Porsche, for example, has been stable over the past four years.

    Penn National's average casino customer is in their 50s. It's betting Barstool Sports can change that.

    Penn National Gaming Inc. is betting that its move to take a minority stake in Barstool Sports will drive the sports media company's younger audience to its 41 casinos. Jay Snowden, CEO of the Wyomissing-based gaming operator, said on an investor call on Wednesday that the company's average casino customer is in their mid-50s, and both Barstool's audience and sports bettors tend to skew younger. “Sports betting is a great nexus for us to start to attract and convert younger sports bettors,” Snowden said.

    Want to retire early? Tanja Hester went from freewheeling spender to financial independence, and says it’s simpler than you think

    When Tanja Hester retired a little over a year ago at age 38, she was considered a personal finance icon to many: She and her husband, Mark, 41, had managed to save enough to live on for the rest of their lives. When Hester was starting out, she had a more conventional approach to earning and spending — and made a lot of common mistakes. Investing felt too intimidating — and Hester kept her fledgling savings in a garden-variety bank account with a meager interest rate that didn't keep up with inflation, losing spending power in the process.

    Silicon Valley DNA testing company 23andMe, which has raised nearly $800 million in funding and was last valued at $2.5 billion, cut 14% of its workforce last week. The cause is a slowdown in sales of its direct-to-consumer DNA kits, which run $100, $200, or $500 depending on how much information you want about your ancestry, genetic composition, health and wellness, carrier status, and vulnerability to certain diseases. DNA tests went boom in 2018, with the number of consumers who had bought one doubling to 26 million; now sales have gone bust.
