The automotive sector is in the midst of an enormous change.

This month marks an anniversary of sorts, as it was three years ago that the current bull market got started. Aside from the short, albeit deep, turndown in Feb/March of 2020, when the corona truck hit us, stock markets have been rising steadily since January 2019. And despite the pandemic, the market’s rate of increase was steeper after the short 2020 recession than before it. In a recent note, Raymond James CIO Larry Adam says it’s time to ‘adjust our aim’ to take into account the dynamics of
“Retiring early is a dream for many people,” said Landon Tan, a certified financial planner. “But those years of not working diminish your chance of a successful retirement more than almost any other metric we toggle when making financial plans.” When planning to retire early, those extra years need to be considered — at the forefront of retirement, but also in the back end if you live longer than anticipated.

The stock market had another tough week, as 2022 hasn't gotten off to the bullish start that many investors had hoped to see.

In what hardly qualifies as a surprising development, shares of both Pfizer (NYSE: PFE) and BioNTech (NASDAQ: BNTX) fell in price on Thursday. This was on the back of a Supreme Court decision that struck down a key government vaccination mandate.
