    Deutsche Bank shares have recovered some ground after hitting 30 year lows. But as Hayley Platt reports, concern about the health of Europe's banks in the face a global slowdown is growing.

    Money & Finance got a reaction from AveragePub in How much money you need to be part of the 1% worldwide?   
    According to the 2018 Global Wealth Report from Credit Suisse Research Institute, you need a net worth of $871,320 U.S. Credit Suisse defines net worth, or "wealth," as "the value of financial assets plus real assets (principally housing) owned by households, minus their debts."
    More than 19 million Americans are in the 1 percent worldwide, Credit Suisse reports, far more than from any other country, while "China is now clearly established in second place in the world wealth hierarchy," with 4.2 million citizens among the world's top 1 percent.
      To be among the top 10 percent worldwide, you don't even need six figures: A net worth of $93,170 will do it.
    And even if you have just $4,210 to your name, you're still richer than half of the world's residents.

    Money & Finance reacted to James Thomas Rook Jr. in David Hockney painting fetches record $90M at NYC auction   
    I remember the story of the man who met this girl he liked, and after dinner on a Saturday, they went to a NYC Jewelry store and he picked out a 3 million dollar necklace for her, and wrote a check saying to the Jeweler,  " I will pick the necklace up Tuesday, after my check clears the bank". 
    The Jeweler was fine with this, and the man and woman spent Saturday night, Sunday, and Monday "wearing each other out!". 
    Tuesday afternoon the store called the man and told him the check had bounced for insufficient funds.
    He grinned, and said "It cost me $35 bounced check charge, for the best long weekend I have EVER had."
    There is a difference between "fetching" 90 million dollars, and GETTING 90 million dollars.

    Money & Finance got a reaction from Automobiles in My Volt CV Boot is worn and leaking   
    Boots - Axle - Outer
    Item Description
    A boot is a flexible, piece of rubber that protects vital components from dirt, debris and the elements. An axle is the part of the car's frame that supports the weight of the vehicle and the weight of accelerating and braking. An outer axle boot is the boot that protects the outer axle.
    Reason
    When damaged, the axle boots leave the axles vulnerable to decay and destruction which can lead to major component damage and damage of connected parts.
    Somewhat early for a 4 year old car in my humble opinion.
    Avoid General Motors and Chevrolet.

    Money & Finance got a reaction from James Thomas Rook Jr. in A Wal*Mart Story   
    Is That an AI Lab? Nope, Just a Walmart
    If we've told you once, we've told you a thousand times: A booming economy and strong consumer sentiment have been great for retailers.
    So instead of only telling you about Walmart's (-2.01%) third-quarter financials (which, BTW, featured 3.4% U.S. sales growth and $124.9 billion in revenue), let's talk about how Walmart, the world's largest retailer, is trying to innovate.
    There's a major focus on winning customers online. With annual e-commerce sales growth clocking in at 43% in Q3, Walmart looks ready for the prime-time holiday season.
    Walmart is set to pass Apple to become the third largest e-commerce retailer by sales this year (behind Amazon and eBay), according to eMarketer.
    It'll snag 4% of U.S. e-commerce sales, up from 3.3% last year.
    And that takes tech investment. Stores are morphing into tech powerhouses, complete with distribution hubs to speed up deliveries, employees trained to work in tandem with AI/robots, and handy apps to help customers find what they need.

    Money & Finance got a reaction from Alexa in What stocks (corporations) do you think are good investments right now and why?   
    Ok... I will begin to share my investment ideas list. I am hoping some of you will challenge me on these or even better surprise me with better opportunities.
    Remember that these are stock investments to hold for decades not just quick trades.

    Uber is quickly changing the transportation infrastructure of our world.
     

    Twitter - I feel this stock has been beaten up and will eventually get bought out by Apple.

    Netflix - They have some of the most compelling content on "TV" right now and have a massive subscriber base.

    Coca-Cola - Because this will always be around

    TJ Maxx - Women just love the hunt and this store seems to just keep on ticking.
    I will also now add Amazon to my list: View the following video....
