A shooter killed eight people and wounded several more before taking his own life at an Indianapolis FedEx facility, police say. This country has not seen such a deadly mass shooting since the March grocery store incident that left 10 people dead. 

“The (gunman) came into the parking lot, and I believe he exited his vehicle and quickly began shooting … The first shooting occurred in the parking lot, and then he went inside and did not get very far (inside),” said the police Deputy Chief Craig McCartt.

I’ve found it.
Paul Mampilly is a Wall Street legend.
(Barron’s crowned his hedge fund as the “world’s best” and Kiplinger ranked it in the top 1%.)
But a few years ago, he left Wall Street.
“I just grew tired of helping the rich get richer,” Paul explains. “So I started sharing my No. 1 investment picks with Main Street Americans.”

And his No. 1 stock picks across his various research services have been phenomenal.
In 2017, he recommended Plug Power. It gained 1142% in 3.5 years.
In June 2018, he recommended Tandem Diabetes. It’s currently up 520% and still climbing.  
In December 2019, he recommended Enphase Energy. It gained 638% in 1 year. 
And in March of last year, he recommended Carvana. It’s currently up 877% and still climbing.
But Paul believes his No. 1 stock pick for 2021 could go even higher.

Stock futures were little changed in early morning trading on Friday after the Dow Jones Industrial Average crossed the 34,000 threshold for the first time ever.

Futures on the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained about 40 points. S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures rose slightly.

Investor sentiment was boosted by economic data on Thursday that pointed to a rebound in consumer spending and the jobs market.

Meanwhile, U.S. jobless claims dropped to the lowest level since March 2020. The Labor Department reported 576,000 first-time filings for unemployment insurance for the week ended April 10. Economists polled by Dow Jones expected a total of 710,000.

The first-quarter earnings season started on a high note with big banks reporting results above expectations.

The Rule of 72 is an easy way to calculate how long it will take an investment to double, based on the fixed annual rate of return. 

This is a good rule to know for any investor’s budget, because you’ll want to know how long to keep your money liquid for. Say you are aiming to turn this money into a car or house—you’ll obviously want to have a time frame, otherwise you could be left floundering.

You can use this rule any time you’re planning for a long-term goal. You can even use the Rule of 115 to find how long your investment will take to triple.

So how do you do it? Although math isn’t fun for everyone, this rule is simple enough to use. Just remember that it isn’t exact, so be sure to look at both the chart and the equation for the most accurate estimates.

Today is a somber day in US history, as it marks the anniversary of the mass shooting at Virginia Tech that left 32 people dead. 

Seung-Hui Cho, a student at the university at the time, went on a campus-wide rampage before taking his own life. The shooting started at 7:15 am in a dormitory when two people were shot and killed. Cho fled the scene, only to return to campus later at 9:40 am with more weapons and ammunition. 

The second shooting lasted approximately 10 minutes as Cho chained doors and exits shut, making it nearly impossible for people to flee. A total of 27 students and five faculty members were killed in the shooting and more than a dozen people were injured on that tragic day.
