    Wealthy millennials aren’t investing their money

    Millennials with money in the bank are big on saving—but they’re not so eager to invest.

When asked what they can rely on most in 20 years, millennials’ top choice is their savings accounts (66%).

    Google is honoring Nigerian soccer legend, Stephen Keshi with a doodle

    Google is celebrating Stephen Keshi, former captain and coach of the Super Eagles, Nigeria’s soccer national team, with a doodle on Google Nigeria on what would have been his 56th birthday. Keshi is famous for being the one of the two people, alongside Egypt’s Mahmoud El-Gohary, to have won the African Cup of Nations (AFCON), Africa’s biggest soccer tournament, as a player and manager. Keshi first won the title in 1994 as captain of the Super Eagles and, 19 years later, won it again as manager leading a less-than-fancied Super Eagles side. He died in June 2016. In a soccer-mad nation where the sport is a national pastime and often a unifying event, Keshi was well-loved and is fondly remembered

    It’s a well-established fact that Susan Sarandon isn’t afraid of making a statement, whether that means letting Twitter users know that she was having the “worst time” at the 2016 DNC or in the case of Sunday night, taking to the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet to stun viewers with some serious glamour with a sequined gown and a pair of very fabulous sunglasses. Sarandon, who walked the red carpet alongside her Thelma & Louise co-star Geena Davis, sagely protected herself from the bright sun pounding down, with a pair of mirrored shades that nicely complemented her glittering navy blue gown.

    Will this “potentially hazardous” asteroid hit the Earth? Take a look yourself

    If you’ve not already heard about it, the Daily Mail would like you to know to the following: ‘Potentially hazardous’ asteroid the size of the Burj Khalifa is heading towards Earth at 67,000 mph. It is the largest space rock to brush past our planet this year and previous research has found a rock of this size could plunge Earth into a mini-ice age if it hit. What are the chances of it hitting the Earth? NASA says zero. The asteroid called 2002 AJ129 will fly safely past the Earth on Feb. 4. The same is true for previous warnings from the Daily Mail for other asteroids, such as “lorry-sized” 2017 YD7, which safely flew past the Earth on Jan. 3, or “rogue asteroid” 2010 NY 65, which did the same

    Ford Is The Next GE And Shorts Should Be Salivating

    After writing extensively for Forbes on GE’s plummet in the past few months, it was striking that both GE and Ford delivered negative guidance to the Street last Tuesday. Ford’s truth bomb —delivered at the Deutsche Bank Global Auto Industry Conference — was particularly destructive. Ford CFO Bob Shanks noted that 2018 earnings were likely to be in the range of $1.45-$1.70 versus a preliminary read on 2017 EPS of $1.78 (full results are due Wednesday.) So, in the midst of the Trump jump in the U.S. and data showing an increasing rate of growth in almost every other major global economy, Ford is predicting — at the midpoint of its guidance range — an EPS decline of 10% in 2018. How can things be going so well in other sectors and not for Ford?

    When to Buy Nvidia, Allergan and Tesla: Must-See Charts

    U.S. stocks are sending an important message this January: This rally could have a whole lot higher to run. According to a survey from the University of Michigan, 66% of American households believe that stock prices are likely to rise further in the next year. That's a record. And they're probably right. Structurally, this rally continues to look strong. Performance-wise, all the big indices are charging hard right now. The big S&P 500, for instance, is up 15% in the last six months alone. And from a market breadth standpoint, the vast majority of the stocks on the market are still participating in the upside. About 81% of S&P components are up in the trailing six months, showing that this rally

    Gun industry converges near Las Vegas mass shooting site

    The gun industry is holding its biggest annual trade show this week just a few miles (kilometers) from the site where a gunman slaughtered 58 concertgoers outside his high-rise Las Vegas hotel room in October using a display case worth of weapons, many fitted with bump stocks that enabled them to mimic fully automatic fire. "We're trying to show the connection between the industry that makes all the money and the damage that their products cause," Lee Goodman, an organizer with Chicago-based Peaceful Communities, said Tuesday. What exactly will be among the thousands of products crammed into the exhibition spaces at the National Shooting Sports Foundation's SHOT Show convention, running Tuesday through Friday, will be a bit of a mystery, shielded from the public and, this year, members of the general-interest media.
