    Five years ago, Fox was an afterthought when it came to college football.

    Honda's Hachigo seizes the wheel as quality crisis hits profits

    At a two-day gathering for Honda's suppliers in March, Chief Executive Takahiro Hachigo sounded the alarm. At the Hotel Higashinihon in Utsunomiya, Hachigo told them the Japanese automaker was facing a crisis after a string of costly recalls and other quality blunders and it needed to plot a new course, according to two people who attended the meeting. Since then, Hachigo has been quietly working on reforms to centralise decision-making by bringing Honda's standalone research & development (R&D) division in-house and cutting some senior management roles, according to three Honda insiders.

    'It's really over': Corporate pensions head for extinction as nature of retirement plans changes

    The practice of companies sending monthly retirement checks to their former workers is headed for extinction, and remaining pension funds are in tough financial shape. Nearly two-thirds of pension funds are considering dropping guaranteed benefits to new workers within the next five years, according to a human resources consulting firm that studied the matter. Despite gains in the stock market this year, U.S. pension plans are near their worst financial state in two years, according to the new report by Mercer, which casts a spotlight on the escalating cost of past promises to employees.

    Here’s how much stock you should own when you retire

    But once you get there, the only certainty is that you'll have to draw down the assets you've accumulated in your traditional IRAs and 401(k)s through required minimum distributions (RMDs) starting the year after you turn 70½. Before you retire, you should see a reputable financial planner to sort it all out, but many investment advisers are stuck in old thinking and conventional wisdom about how to invest it. So, I'm going to suggest how you can do it yourself.

    Airbus Secures Lead Over Boeing as 737 Max Uncertainty Continues

    Shares of Airbus SE handily pulled ahead of rival Boeing Co. this year after a pair of fatal 737 Max plane crashes led to the grounding of the U.S. model's entire fleet. Airbus is poised to finish the year ahead of Boeing for the first time since 2015, with an increase of roughly 50% since the start of January, compared to the Chicago-based company's less than 10% gain. With the uncertainty of approvals for the Max to resume flying, many analysts predict the French aircraft maker will continue to outperform its troubled peer in 2020 as well.
