    Is Maverix Metals (TSE:MMX) Using Too Much Debt?

    Legendary fund manager Li Lu (who Charlie Munger backed) once said, 'The biggest investment risk is not the volatility of prices, but whether you will suffer a permanent loss of capital. Importantly, Maverix Metals Inc. (TSE:MMX) does carry debt. Debt and other liabilities become risky for a business when it cannot easily fulfill those obligations, either with free cash flow or by raising capital at an attractive price.

    Ford's UAW members vote to ratify new four-year contract

    The United Auto Workers union said on Friday that rank-and-file members at Ford Motor Co have voted in favor of a new four-year labor contract with the No. 2 U.S. automaker. Talks with FCA are expected to begin on Monday, a UAW spokesman said. The union said 56.3% of Ford's hourly workers voted to approve the deal, which allowed the company to avoid a strike like the one that cost its larger rival General Motors Co about $3 billion (£2.3 billion).

    Aramco declares $1.7tr valuation in blockbuster IPO

    Saudi Arabia on Sunday put a value of up to $1.71 trillion on energy giant Aramco in what could be the world's biggest IPO, but missed Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's initial target of $2 trillion. Aramco said it would sell 1.5 percent of the company in a blockbuster initial public offering worth $24-25.6 billion, scaling down Saudi Arabia's original plan to sell up to five percent of the firm. "The base offer size will be 1.5 percent of the company's outstanding shares," the state-owned energy giant said as it began taking bids from investors in a price range of 30-32 Saudi riyals per share ($8-8.5).

    It’s great the stock market is setting records, but it’s not because the economy is great

    Stocks on Wall Street have soared to fresh record highs, but it's not because the economy is flashing a big thumbs-up sign. The economy is still expanding, to be sure, and sporadic worries about recession have faded again. More evidence of a slowdown emerged in a pair of recent reports on industrial production and retail sales — windows into how businesses and consumers are faring.

    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.

    Alibaba's Hong Kong Share Sale Is Feeling Lucky

    Alibaba will initially offer only 2.5% of the offering to individual investors, a quarter of the allocation specified in Hong Kong's listing rules and half the 5% level typically allowed for sales valued at more than HK$10 billion ($1.3 billion). The retail portion may be increased to as much as 10% depending on the level of demand, though that's still well below the 50% that the listing rules require for the most heavily subscribed offers. The effect of squeezing down the retail offering may be to increase the perceived rarity value of Alibaba shares, magnifying the buzz around what may be Hong Kong's biggest share sale since 2010.

    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.

    7 Low-Risk Dividend Stocks to Buy for Retirees

    By definition, the dividend aristocrats -- a group of S&P 500 companies that have raised their dividend payouts annually for 25 years or more -- should be good candidates for low-risk dividend stocks to buy. Like JNJ, Chevron falls into that category, with 33 straight years of dividend growth. Today Chevron rewards investors with a healthy 3.9% yield, and while share price gains have been pretty pedestrian in recent years, the integrated oil and gas major does have to deal with energy prices that have been depressed since the 2014 oil crash.

    Boeing moved on Saturday to ease tensions with regulators over the return to service of its 737 MAX, saying it was up to the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and its global counterparts to approve changes to the jet in the wake of two accidents. The FAA told its staff this week to take whatever time was needed to review the grounded plane after Boeing said it expected the FAA to certify the 737 MAX in mid-December. "We put some targets out that still line up to December ... type certification," Stan Deal, chief executive of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, told reporters.

Although it's not true in all cases, if you're paying taxes on any type of income from working, there's a good chance that you can make Roth IRA contributions.
