    Mobius says there’s a 30% correction coming for U.S. stocks

    Mark Mobius, the 81-year-old investment guru, believes the U.S. stock market is set for a 30% correction that would essentially wipe out the gains of the last two years. The renowned fund manager, who left Franklin Templeton, the American investment house, after more than 30 years in January, said “all the indicators” point to a large fall in the S&P 500 SPX, -0.85%  and the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -0.82%  . “I can see a 30% drop,” said Mobius, who launched one of the world’s first emerging market funds. “When consumer confidence is at an all time high, as it is in the U.S., that is not a good sign. “The market looks to me to be waiting for a trigger that will cause it to tumble.

    T-Mobile’s wild ride might finally be slowing down

    Since hiring CEO John Legere in 2012 and debuting its new Uncarrier strategy, T-Mobile has turned into the kind of success story that gets MBA professors hot under the collar. T-Mobile turned its scrappy underdog status into a marketing plug, and by adding the iPhone to its lineup and investing heavily in network infrastructure, the company’s product is now on par with AT&T and Verizon. It’s not just the network, either — T-Mobile’s aggressive pricing and impressive customer loyalty has driven its new customer subscriptions to a point where it’s challenging AT&T and Verizon, and it’s leaving Sprint in the rear-view mirror.

    Stay Away From All Forms of Romaine Lettuce, CDC Warns

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is warning customers to stay away from all forms of romaine lettuce, as the scope of its investigation into an E. coli outbreak grows. The CDC had originally traced the outbreak -- which has sickened at least 53 people across 16 states -- specifically to chopped romaine lettuce grown in the Yuma, Ariz., region. An update issued on Friday, however, says customers should also avoid whole heads and hearts of romaine, in addition to chopped lettuce, unless they can determine that it was not grown in Yuma.

    Britain’s longest-ever ruling monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, turns 92 today (April 21).

    Pot politics: Schumer joins politicians rethinking marijuana

    The top Senate Democrat is using marijuana's informal holiday to announce a change of heart about the drug, another sign of the growing political acceptance of pot. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York said Friday he'll introduce a bill taking marijuana off the federal list of controlled substances — in effect decriminalizing its use. Under the measure, the federal government would still enforce laws against moving pot into states where it's illegal and would still regulate advertising so it isn't aimed at children.

    Will You Wind Up Returning to Work After Retiring? Chances Are, Yes

    Countless people look forward to retirement for one key reason: not having to endure the grind of maintaining a full-time career. In a recent survey, among the 17% of adults who returned to work over the past three years after being out of the workforce for at least 12 months, 13% were retirees who resumed their careers because they needed the additional income. The average household nearing retirement has a median savings of just $17,000, according to data from the Economic Policy Institute, and in a more recent study by GOBankingRates, one-third of adults 55 and over were said to have less than $10,000 in a nest egg.
