The search for 70-year-old David Vowell ended over the weekend after the man’s body was found near a Tennessee lake.

Vowell was wanted on two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of 26-year-old Chance Black and 25-year-old Zachary Grooms. Investigators spoke with a third hunter who was in the same duck blind as the victims when the incident occurred. The witness alleged that Vowell shot the men after an argument broke out.

Vowell’s body was found on Saturday afternoon near where his victims were shot. Investigators said an autopsy would be needed to determine the cause of death.

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 have been phenomenal.

In 2016, Paul’s No. 1 pick — Tableau Software — shot up 199%.

In 2017, Paul’s No. 1 pick — Foundation Medicine — shot up 524%.

In 2018, Paul’s No. 1 pick — Roku — shot up 393%.

In 2019, Paul’s No. 1 pick — MTech Acquisitions — shot up 332%.

But Paul believes his No. 1 stock pick for 2021 could go even higher.

Last week, the stock market suffered its biggest losses since October, but futures indicated that each of the three major indexes would be off to a good start this morning. Dow Jones Industrial Average futures were slated to rise 200 points.

One strategist says that the mayhem surrounding the GameStop stock last week is the type of thing that could trigger a correction in what he believes is an overvalued market.

“We think that the vulnerabilities are there,” said Tobias Levkovich, of Citigroup. “And while we do not know precisely which catalysts might emerge or their exact timing (including some of the recent retail-oriented pushes against heavily shorted stocks), we suspect that they would derail the current rally and provide entry points that may be 10% lower.”

Your mental well-being affects your overall health - this is what you need to know

Your mental well-being is extremely important. So much so that it affects your overall health in a variety of ways.

In a recent study, it was discovered that adverse mental health could lead to poor overall health. One of the most concerning findings was the correlation between mental health problems and cardiovascular health. Prolonged mental health issues like anxiety, stress, depression, and hostility can lead to abnormal heart rates, increased blood pressure, and reduced blood flow to the heart.

Mental un-wellness can also result in increased inflammation, high cholesterol, obesity, and an increased risk of diabetes. What else do we know about the correlation of mental health and your overall health and well-being? 


You’ve probably seen all the media hype over GameStop’s stock price and people flocking to Robinhood to get in on the action. But what exactly does that mean for the average person who wants to get into investing?

Apps like Robinhood have made it easier for regular Joes to get in on the Wall Street action. But with every upside comes with a downside. Recent studies show that the average retail investor doesn’t do so well when it comes to making money trading stocks. And that’s because even with greater access to the market, trading isn’t a get-rich-quick scheme.

The golden rule used in professional trading also applies to individual investors: don’t invest more than you’re willing to lose. Yes, investing is a great way to start building wealth, but the benefits don’t really kick in until you start trading for long-term returns.
