    [$$] As Apple Nears a Bear Market, Stocks Beg for a Leader

    Investors have flocked for years toward Apple and a handful of other companies in the technology sector because of their ability to consistently increase sales regardless of global economic growth.

    Some retirement investors are getting proactive in a wild market — but here's why they shouldn't

    The recent volatility in stock markets has led some investors to make major moves in their retirement plans — but they may be trading more on emotion than long-term financial goals.

Wall Street has been struggling with uncertainty over U.S. congressional midterm elections, the path of interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve, tariffs, the trade war and the possibility corporate earnings have already peaked.
