    Tesla will mark the beginning of the end for this bull market, warns Ralph Nader

    Apparently so, according to consumer advocate and former presidential candidate Ralph Nader, who issued a stark warning this week, not only on the electric-car maker's pricey stock, but on the stock market as a whole. “Deep in debt, selling less than 400,000 vehicles last year and challenged by several competing electric car models in 2020, Tesla's stock valuation stunningly exceeds VW which sold over 10 million vehicles last year,” Nader added in a follow-up tweet. Of course, his stance didn't sit well with Tesla fans.

    “Interest rates were a lot different back then,” he continued. A day earlier, fellow billionaire Paul Tudor Jones, from the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, said we are currently in the “craziest monetary and fiscal mix in history,” and, at least to him, it's reminiscent of 1999. What happens next in the stock market, he said, depends where interest rates go from here.

    Americans who fall behind on loan payments, rack up rising debt or take out personal loans to consolidate debt will likely see their credit scores fall under updates planned for the popular FICO scores, according to Fair Isaac Corp., the creator FICO scores. “Most consumers will see less than a 20-point swing in either direction,” David Shellenberger, FICO's vice president, product management, scores, said in a statement on Thursday. About 40 million, he said, will see a sharper shift upward in scores, and 40 million will be hit with a similar-sized drop, Shellenberger said.

    Intel enjoys big rebound in cloud, but the future is still hazy

    Intel Corp. wrapped up a rocky 2019 by reporting record sales thanks to a big jump in sales of chips for data centers and cloud computing, but that rebound may just be temporary. The chip giant reported Thursday that its quarterly revenue surged past $20 billion for the first time ever at the end of 2019, fueled in part by a 19% jump in data center sales to $7.2 billion in the fourth quarter, a record performance for Intel's (INTC) second largest business. The data center arena has been feast or famine for the entire chip industry, as the sporadic ups and downs of hyperscaler companies and public cloud service providers have created doubts about where the cloud boom is headed.

    FDA approves local biotech's first rare-cancer drug

    The FDA has approved the first-ever commercial cancer treatment from Cambridge biotech Epizyme Inc. Just a few years ago, Epizyme had given up on its potential cancer treatment and sold it to a Japanese drug company. On Thursday, the FDA approved the drug, Tazverik, to treat metastatic or locally advanced epitheliod sarcoma, a rare and aggressive form of soft tissue cancer. Tazverik is the first drug specifically designed for the cancer, which is diagnosed in 150 to 200 people each year, according to Epizyme.

    Intel stock jumps as cloud pushes quarterly revenue higher than $20 billion for first time

    Intel Corp.'s data-center sales crushed Wall Street estimates Thursday, pushing quarterly revenue atop the $20 billion mark for the first time, but the chip maker's forecast reflected a conservative for the difficult-to-predict cloud market. Intel (INTC) shares jumped as much as 7% in after-hours trading Thursday after the company said it expects adjusted earnings of $1.30 a share on revenue of about $19 billion for the first quarter, and $5 a share on revenue of about $73.5 billion in 2020. On the conference call, Intel Chief Executive Bob Swan defended the estimate by saying that visibility into sales later in the year is limited.

    Young trader’s epic Beyond Meat stock misfire: ‘Biggest mistake of my life’

    For veteran Wall Street types, $12,000 is a rounding error, but for a guy getting his feet wet in the options pits, losing that much will leave a scar. Unfortunately, that's what happened this week to an anonymous trader whom we'll call “Juice,” if the sob story he shared on Reddit is accurate. “I thought I'd give options a try because I was doing pretty well swing trading and it was probably the biggest mistake of my life,” he wrote in a post.

    I’m 38 with $315,000 saved for retirement, but have $30,000 in debt. Should I lower my 401(k) contributions to get rid of that debt?

    Dear Catey, I currently have about $315,000 in retirement savings and am 38 years old. I have about $30,000 in consumer debt (this is the only debt we carry, no car payment or mortgage) — about $24,000 of which is an unsecured loan that I'm paying about 10% interest on; the rest is on credit cards that are on a 0% promotional period and that I hopefully pay off before the 0% period expires in October 2020. I'm trying to pay down my debt and continue to save aggressively for retirement…I've made minimal improvements over the past couple of years paying down my debt and continue to play the balance transfer game on credit cards to retain 0% interest rates or other low rate options.

    10 Companies Microsoft Could Buy to Boost Its Growing Cloud Business

    It might be time for (MSFT) to go shopping. Piper Sandler analyst Brent Bracelin asserts in a research note Thursday that 2020 could be a defining year for the software giant. He argues that Microsoft (ticker: MSFT) has “a unique opportunity to further elevate its cloud leadership position through share gains and needle-moving M&A.” The company's huge run to a $1 trillion-plus valuation has been driven by the remarkable growth in its Azure cloud business, which is smaller than (AMZN)'s (AMZN) Amazon Web Services but growing faster—and Bracelin thinks the company can press its advantage with a smart deals.

    Who Should Consider a Roth Conversion Now?

    The new law requires most IRAs inherited by people other than spouses to be drained within 10 years, which can lead to much higher tax bills for heirs. Spouses still have the option of treating an inherited IRA as their own and taking money out over their lifetimes. At the same time, the Secure Act delayed when required minimum distributions have to begin for most retirement account owners, increasing the age for mandatory distributions from 70 1/2 to 72.

    The classic risk-free investment is Treasury securities, but even they carry some degree of price risk from changes in interest rates, though the risk of default is slim to none. To be clear, dividend-paying stocks do carry risk as they are still subject to the same factors that impact the stock market. Investing for dividend yield is about finding those companies that pay higher dividends as a source of yield.

    The latest coronavirus stock screamers: Inovio Pharmaceuticals, Co-Diagnostics

    As the coronavirus out of China spreads and gets deadlier, shares of health care companies that announce plans to take part in finding a vaccine, or identifying patients with the new strain, have rallied sharply in very active trading. On Thursday, among the bigger coronavirus gainers was Inovio Pharmaceuticals Inc.'s stock (INO) , which ran up 12% in afternoon trading, putting it on track for the highest close since May 9. The Pennsylvania-based biotechnology company said early Thursday that it was awarded a grant of up to $9 million by the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) to develop a vaccine for the new strain of coronavirus, 2019-nCoV, which originated in Wuhan, China, and has killed no less than 17 people.
