    Boeing Hits Market Headwinds After October High

    The Boeing Company ( BA) is the largest manufacturer of commercial airplanes and is also a defense contractor and builder of space and security systems. Boeing was the best performer in the Dow Jones Industrial Average in 2017 and remains a leader in 2018, but the stock has hit some turbulence since setting its all-time intraday high of $394.28 on Oct. 3. Boeing closed Monday, Oct. 22, at $355.98, up 20.7% year to date and 9.7% below its all-time high, but it is now in bull market territory at 20.5% above its Jan. 2 low of $295.40.

    Why Investors Are Paying a Premium for These 3 Biotech Stocks

    Amarin stock exploded in September because it looks like Vascepa will become the next go-to drug for this enormous population. During the 8,179-patient Reduce-It trial, patients given Vascepa in addition to their normal statin treatments were 25% less likely to suffer a major cardiovascular event such as a heart attack. Over the past year, Amarin Corporation actually lost $92 million because sales of Vascepa just haven't kept pace with operating expenses.

    Wells Fargo pays $65 million to settle 'cross-sell' fraud claims with New York

    A push by Wells Fargo to get existing customers to buy more of the bank's products, known as "cross-selling," was at the center of a fake customer accounts scandal that has dogged the bank for two years. Wells Fargo failed to disclose to investors that the success of its cross-selling was built on sales practice misconduct, Underwood's office said. "The misconduct at Wells Fargo was widespread across the bank and at every level of management – impacting both customers and investors who were misled," New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood said in a statement.

    Suze Orman missed the point of retirement, and that’s why she went back to work

    Suze Orman did a smackdown of the FIRE (Financial Independence/Retire Early) movement on Paula Pant’s podcast. Coach Carson posted a balanced, informative response, appreciating Suze’s admonition to be sure you have enough for a risk-free retirement. Suze enumerated a string “what can go wrong” scenarios as evidence that early retirement (on less than $10 million) leaves you vulnerable when life hands you lemons — a whole tree of lemons.

    Trump’s Tax Push to Help Middle Class Could Help Top Earners Too

    It’s still unclear how Trump will propose to reduce the tax burden on middle-class Americans, but one of the most straightforward ways would be to lower rates by 10 percent for single filers making up to $82,500. U.S. income tax rates are graduated and income dollars get taxed in chunks as they move up through the brackets -- which means wealthy Americans would also get to apply the reduced rate on their first dollars of income. “A millionaire gets the same size tax cut,” said Kyle Pomerleau, an economist at the conservative Tax Foundation.

Bank of America’s call -- echoing others -- comes as investors scramble to judge whether the current turmoil in equity markets represents a blip or fundamental shift in regime.
