    Why Rich Investors Are Bracing for a Steep Sell-Off as Turmoil Looms

    Bullish buyers have sent the S&P 500 Index soaring to a series of record highs this month, but wealthy investors are bracing for a significant market decline by the end of 2020, and now hold, on average, 25% of their assets in cash, according to a worldwide survey by UBS Global Wealth Management that drew more than 3,400 responses. “The rapidly changing geopolitical environment is the biggest concern for investors around the world,” as Paula Polito, client strategy officer at UBS GWM, observed in a statement. UBS polled investors with $1 million or more in investable assets, which include cash and marketable securities, but exclude residences and personal property.

    How Much Are Taxes on an IRA Withdrawal?

    How much you will pay in taxes on an individual retirement account (IRA) withdrawal depends on the type of IRA, your age, and the purpose of the withdrawal. In other cases, you owe income tax on the money you withdraw and sometimes an additional penalty if you withdraw funds before age 59½. There are a number of IRA options and a variety of places to get these account types, but the Roth IRA and the traditional IRA are by far the most widely held types.

    UPDATE 1-German parliament approves climate protection law

    The German lower house of parliament approved on Friday a major climate protection package which aims to ensure Germany will meet its 2030 target for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The package, agreed after months of haggling between the Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives and her Social Democrat coalition partners, has already been criticised as inadequate in view of the urgent challenges posed by climate change. Environment minister Svenja Schulze said the measures, which compel ministries to take additional steps to cut emissions if Germany falls behind on its climate goals, plugged a major gap in Germany's legislative framework.

    Are You Saving Too Much for Retirement? Big Mistake

    Media headlines often herald that Americans aren't saving enough for retirement, but there are also some who might be saving too much. One big reason you may be saving too much is that retirement planning has become too generalized. For example, it's unlikely that any automated program will be able to accurately predict how much of your pre-retirement income you will need—otherwise known as replacement rate—and what the return rates, inflation, and spending will be throughout your retirement years.

    Aurora Cannabis stock suffers worst day in more than five years, analyst says ‘it would be fair for investors not to believe them’

    Aurora Cannabis Inc. shares suffered through their worst trading session in more than five years Friday, after an earnings report that included disappointing numbers and plans to cut spending sent analysts racing to cut their forecasts for the Canadian marijuana producer. Aurora's (ACB) revenue declined by 24% sequentially in its fiscal first quarter, and the second largest public weed company by sales cancelled or delayed plans for multiple further facilities expansions and converted C$155 million in debt into shares as it seeks to conserve cash. Investors responded by sending the stock on a 17.2% decline to $2.73, the largest single-day percentage decline for Aurora shares in more than five years and the lowest closing price since October 2017.
