    How China can build a hospital for coronavirus patients in a week

    In Wuhan, China, there's a riveting sideshow in the unfolding drama to contain the fast-spreading coronavirus strain that has already claimed 132 lives and infected over 6,000, as of the latest confirmed count. The majority of those infected are in Wuhan, and the Chinese government is putting its resources into building new medical facilities, fast. Broadcast by Chinese state media, drone footage of the construction site shows a ballet of bulldozers digging the foundation and a parade of trucks hauling in steel cable, cement, pre-fab parts and power generators.

    While we wait for Tesla's earnings report, here's how its profit per vehicle compares

    The electric carmaker's stock has more than doubled since Tesla's previous quarterly report on Oct. 23, when it posted a surprise profit that was viewed as a milestone for the company. Still, a Reuters analysis of Tesla's and other luxury carmakers' operating profit per vehicle — a metric closely watched by auto executives — shows Tesla still has a long way to go before reaching the steady profits of rivals Porsche, BMW and Mercedes-Benz. At an average of roughly $17,750 per vehicle, operating profit at luxury carmaker Porsche, for example, has been stable over the past four years.

    Beyond Meat Products Pulled From Tim Hortons Canada Shops

    The chain had been serving the Beyond Burger and a Beyond Meat breakfast sandwich made with the company's imitation sausage products. Beyond shares sank as much as 3.9% to $115.40 in early trading Wednesday after Bloomberg's report. The rollback marks a rare setback for the plant-based meat maker, which currently has partnerships with Carl's Jr., Hardee's and Dunkin' Donuts in the U.S., and recently announced an expansion of its partnership with Subway in Canada to begin serving meatball subs nationwide.

    Hackers are ramping up attacks on retirement accounts — how to keep yourself safe

    The thought of losing your life savings to hackers can be terrifying — and it's why two of Houston financial adviser Michelle Gessner's clients didn't want to consolidate their retirement assets, even if the move would be financially savvy. “The question is real and understandable,” Gessner said. Gessner was able to talk them through their fears, and showed them the custodians she works with — such as Fidelity, TD Ameritrade (AMTD) and Schwab (SCHW) — all guarantee protection in the event of a hack.

    Penn National's average casino customer is in their 50s. It's betting Barstool Sports can change that.

    Penn National Gaming Inc. is betting that its move to take a minority stake in Barstool Sports will drive the sports media company's younger audience to its 41 casinos. Jay Snowden, CEO of the Wyomissing-based gaming operator, said on an investor call on Wednesday that the company's average casino customer is in their mid-50s, and both Barstool's audience and sports bettors tend to skew younger. “Sports betting is a great nexus for us to start to attract and convert younger sports bettors,” Snowden said.

    Once-hot DNA testing unicorn 23andMe is in serious trouble

    Silicon Valley DNA testing company 23andMe, which has raised nearly $800 million in funding and was last valued at $2.5 billion, cut 14% of its workforce last week. The cause is a slowdown in sales of its direct-to-consumer DNA kits, which run $100, $200, or $500 depending on how much information you want about your ancestry, genetic composition, health and wellness, carrier status, and vulnerability to certain diseases. DNA tests went boom in 2018, with the number of consumers who had bought one doubling to 26 million; now sales have gone bust.

    Warren, Sanders wealth taxes could double US trade deficit, study finds

    Wealth-tax proposals championed by Democratic presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders could significantly increase the trade deficit over the next decade, according to a paper published this week. The Tax Foundation, a conservative think tank based in Washington, D.C., estimated that the average trade deficit from 2020 to 2029 would more than double under both progressive candidates' proposals. The deficit would increase from the Congressional Budget Office's estimate of 3.10 percent to 6.94 percent under Warren's proposal and 7.53 percent under Sanders'.

    Want to retire early? Tanja Hester went from freewheeling spender to financial independence, and says it’s simpler than you think

    When Tanja Hester retired a little over a year ago at age 38, she was considered a personal finance icon to many: She and her husband, Mark, 41, had managed to save enough to live on for the rest of their lives. When Hester was starting out, she had a more conventional approach to earning and spending — and made a lot of common mistakes. Investing felt too intimidating — and Hester kept her fledgling savings in a garden-variety bank account with a meager interest rate that didn't keep up with inflation, losing spending power in the process.

    The Roth strategy we wish we’d built for early retirement

    It's fair to say there are several things we'd do differently if we were to go back and save for early retirement all over again, because we didn't do this perfectly by any means. There are the things we'd do differently if we were starting right now, but the biggest thing we'd change no matter when we were saving and no matter what the markets were doing at that point is do a better job of saving money in Roth IRA accounts. Yes, we have Roth regrets.

    The Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU) Share Price Has Gained 134%, So Why Not Pay It Some Attention?

    By comparing earnings per share (EPS) and share price changes over time, we can get a feel for how investor attitudes to a company have morphed over time. Micron Technology became profitable within the last three years. That kind of transition can be an inflection point that justifies a strong share price gain, just as we have seen here.

    GE’s stock soars after earnings, as CEO Culp says turnaround is ‘gaining traction’

    Shares of General Electric Co. climbed toward a more than one-year high Wednesday, after the long-struggling industrial conglomerate reported profit, revenue and free cash flow beats, and commentary from Chief Executive Larry Culp suggested the worst is behind the company. After calling 2019 a “reset” year, Culp capped his first full calendar year in charge of GE by saying on the post-earnings conference call with analysts that he was seeing “evidence of momentum” across the company. “Despite areas of volatility in aggregate, we have a positive trajectory in 2020,” Culp said, according to a transcript provided by FactSet.
