Watch SpaceX launch the world’s most powerful rocket in a complex mission for the Air Force

SpaceX is launching its massive Falcon Heavy rocket for the second time this year on Monday night in an experimental mission for the U.S. Air Force. The rocket is delivering 24 spacecraft into three separate orbits, in what CEO Elon Musk called SpaceX’s “most difficult launch ever.” Lifting off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the mission will take about 3 1/2 hours to complete.

I retired at 34 with $3 million—here are 5 downsides of early retirement that no one tells you

Many people have negative views on young retirees: They’re spoiled. They’re lazy. Their parents helped them. They won the lottery. But none of these things apply to me. I grew up in a middle-income household. I worked hard to earn good grades and pay for college. I was the first one in the office and the last to leave. Sure, I got lucky by landing a high-paying investment banking job and in some of my investments, but I live a frugal life and have always been diligent about staying on top of my finances All of that played a huge role in my early retirement in 2012, at 34. By the time I quit my job, I had amassed a net worth of about $3 million that generated roughly $80,000 in investment income per year.

I don’t regret my decision

I won’t lie: Early retirement has been a dream come true. I gave up a healthy six-figure paycheck, but I gained something priceless in return: Freedom. People told me I was crazy to leave a high-paying job at such a young age, but I was absolutely burned out and felt disillusioned by my industry of work. I never anticipated how miserable I’d be working in finance, especially after the financial crisis. Early retirement isn’t for everyone. But from my experience, the pros outweigh the cons. I get to wake up whenever I want. I no longer have to endure unproductive meetings or put up with nefarious colleagues. I’ve traveled to more than 20 countries with my wife, wrote a book on how to negotiate a severance and get to coach high school tennis. I also became a dad in 2017. Being a parent has been the toughest full-time job I’ve ever had; it makes working in investment banking for 13 years feel like a walk in the park.

The downsides of early retirement

I will admit that there are a few downsides. (I finally understand why researchers say that, no matter how much of a boost we get in freedom or money, we eventually revert back to our normal baseline of happiness.) In a 2017 CompHealth survey, 68% of the 400 late-career physicians surveyed said they were not excited about retirement. Some of the top concerns included losing social interactions at work, a loss of purpose, boredom and depression. That said, here are the biggest negatives of early retirement that no one likes to talk about: 1) You may suffer from an identity crisis. One of the most common questions people ask when they first meet each other is: “What do you do for a living?” When you’ve spent at least a decade working in any job, you may find it incredibly jolting to no longer be identified as the marketing expert, the investment professional or the management consultant. It was only after I left my job that I realized how obsessed I was with my profession. I often wondered: How is the business doing without me? I was there for 11 years. Were they really able to survive without my expertise? But after months of no emails or phone calls begging for me to come back, I finally accepted the fact that I was no longer needed. 2) You may second-guess yourself. When you retire young, you may find yourself questioning whether you made the right choice and regret all the money and status you forewent. I still had a mortgage to pay and was worried that I made a grave mistake. But after some time, my retirement plans grew clearer. I started writing more on Financial Samurai, the personal finance website I started in 2009. It was a cathartic way of dealing any stress and uncertainty. Fortunately, after writing three times a week for the past 10 years, Financial Samurai has grown tremendously. I reinvested 100% of the profits it made and generated a decent amount of passive income.

3) People may treat you like a misfit. Maybe it’s because retiring early is unconventional. Or maybe they’re secretly jealous you’re not grinding away at a day job. Whatever the reason, people won’t always give you the same amount of respect as they would to a working-class citizen. Eventually, I grew tired of explaining why I retired early or that I wasn’t a trust fund kid. To keep the discussion simple and regain a social identity, I’d simply say I was a writer and tennis coach. 4) You’ll be surprised that you aren’t that much happier. Many people think that once they achieve financial freedom or leave a job they hate, they’ll be permanently happier. But, as I mentioned earlier, research has found that any significant amount of elevated happiness is only short-term. One a scale of one to 10, my happiness level skyrocketed to a 10 after I was able to negotiate a pretty solid severance. It was enough to pay for five years worth of living expenses. But not too long after that check hit my bank account, I reverted back to my normal post-retirement baseline of happiness. 5) You may get really, really bored. Retiring early is like finishing the season finale of your favorite TV show. You’re glad it got a nice ending, but you’re also sad it’s over and left wondering what’s next. With an extra 10 to 14 hours of free time every day, my productivity suffered and I grew less motivated to achieve great wins. It didn’t help that none of my friends or former colleagues were able to hang out. There were no more company holiday parties or various client events. Believe it or not, I actually enjoyed those things! Now, I try to attend various meet-up events in order to make new friends, but my social life mostly consists of the folks I meet through playing tennis and softball. It wasn’t until three years later, when my wife joined me in early retirement, that my boredom began to dissipate. We did a lot of traveling, but more importantly, we became parents, which renewed my sense of purpose.

Early retirement won’t solve all your problems

Apple on Monday released the public previews for iOS 13 and iPadOS, the new software that it will launch for iPhones and iPads in the fall.

This means you can install and try many of the new features, such as dark mode on the iPhone and new widgets on the iPad home screen, a few months early.

I’ve been testing both for the past several weeks and they don’t seem too buggy, but you should always expect a few problems since this isn’t the final version of the software. Because of that, you may not want to install the iOS 13 beta on your primary phone, since it takes some effort to go back to the old software and some things might not work as expected.

Before you start, be sure to back up your iPhone and iPad.

This video perfectly captures why 'smart' homes have never caught on

GE published a video in January that everyone’s just now talking about, and it perfectly captures why smart homes have never really caught on.

In it, GE shows how to reset its smart light bulbs. The video starts with a warning that you might have one of two different smart bulb models or your smart bulb might be running on older firmware — itself a hilarious idea — and that you may need to try a second process that’s explained in the latter part of the clip.

GE begins to explain how to reset the bulbs. It requires turning the bulb on and off several times for a specific number of seconds. The narrator’s voice is both soothing and forceful as he repeats “Turn off for two seconds. Turn on for eight seconds.” It sounds like a meditation guide.

If this doesn’t work, GE says, you have a different model of bulb or older firmware, and you need to try a second process of turning the bulb on and off for a different amount of time.

GE did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment.

The video perfectly illustrates why some people are turned off by smart homes: because you need to keep everything updated, including things like light bulbs that can otherwise be operated with the simple flick of a switch.

And when things go wrong, they really go wrong.

Check out the video below.

Refinery explosion and fire should drive up gasoline prices in some locations

Gas prices at the pump should rise for East Coast drivers after a massive explosion Friday affected operations at a Philadelphia refining complex responsible for as much as 27% of the region’s fuel production

How much prices jump depends on the extent of damage and the length of the outage, which coincided with peak summer driving. For now, analysts are expecting to see a jump of about 5 cents per gallon for drivers in the mid-Atlantic region, which is served by Philadelphia Energy Solutions refinery, the largest and oldest on the East Coast.

“This refining outage couldn’t come at a worse time for consumers, given the backdrop of the tensions with Iran only exasperating the rising price environment for oil,” said John Kilduff, partner with Again Capital.

The refining company said the cause of several blasts at one of its alkylation units early Friday is under investigation, and the refinery is operating at a reduced rate. Alkylation units provide octane for making premium gasoline.

The explosion occurred just as U.S. gasoline demand hit an all-time high last week. The pressure on gasoline prices also comes at a volatile time for oil prices, up more than 9% this week, after plummeting about 20% this spring.

Wells Fargo analysts said East Coast fuel prices could rise by 3 to 5 cents a gallon, based on incremental import costs. For now, gasoline supply is sufficient in the U.S., so the main price impact should not spread beyond the region.

Analysts said the impact could remain at several cents per gallon in the mid-Atlantic region, unless there are other disruptions or the outage is extended. The national average for unleaded gasoline at the pump was $2.66 per gallon Friday, but it has been slightly higher in Pennsylvania, at $2.82; New Jersey, $2.75 and New York, $2.85, according to AAA.

Tom Kloza, global head of energy analysis at Oil Price Information Service, said he does not believe the outage will be a major problem for the U.S. gasoline market, which is well supplied — even with a number of Gulf Coast refineries still in extended maintenance.

He said the Philadelphia refinery is actually two refineries — one a legacy Atlantic Richfield refinery and the other a legacy Gulf operation, and it appears only one part may be damaged, leaving the other to continue operations.

It will be important to see how extensive the damage is and whether it extends beyond the alkylation unit. “It’s a key element in hitting the octane threshold. It could hamstring their ability to make premium fuel,” he said.

He said gas prices, which have been falling, could instead now find support. “Because of Iran and higher crude prices, I suspect we’ll see higher RBOB prices. Instead of falling 10 to 15 cents, it could go up 5 cents a gallon,” he said. RBOB futures represent gasoline prices in the New York Harbor, which is supplied by the Philadelphia refinery, among others.

RBOB gasoline futures for July were 3.3% higher Friday, at $1.85 per gallon. At the pump, retail prices are down 20 cents a gallon from last year for unleaded gasoline. The price is also down 4 cents from last week’s $2.70, and 18 cents from a month ago.

Sal Risalvato, executive director, New Jersey Gasoline, C-Store and Automotive Association, said that before the explosion, he already saw prices rise this week at the wholesale rack, where trucks fill up for New Jersey gas station deliveries. Some prices were up as much as 4 cents per gallon Thursday, based on the oil price jump, he said.

“I’m seeing right now at least in the short term, you’re going to see prices go up,” said Risalvato. “It wouldn’t surprise me if when I get my rack prices tonight at midnight that gas went up 5 to 10 cents. Will you sees that at the pump right away? You might. Once there’s an announcement the refinery is back on line, the price will go back down.”

Andrew Lipow, president of Lipow Oil Associates, said the part of the refining complex affected is the Girard Point section, which represents about 16% of East Coast refining capacity.

He said the complex makes gasoline, diesel fuel and jet fuel. He expects less impact on diesel and jet fuel.

“For the consumer, it’s bad news because the futures market reacted immediately and was up as much as 8 cents a gallon, but it has come down. There’s more than adequate supplies of gasoline inventories along the East Coast. What I would expect is that local inventories would be drawn until resupplies from either imports from Europe or vessels loading the Gulf Coast make their way to the East Coast,” said Lipow.

Kloza said the refinery fire could have a noticeable impact because it is a refinery that feeds the market for New York harbor gasoline, which is reflected in the price of RBOB futures on the NYMEX.

“I don’t think this is a huge deal. These things happen. It is a refinery that feeds NYMEX,” said Kloza. He said there is plenty of fuel available for the region from other parts of the North Atlantic, like Europe and Canada and the U.S.

“We’ll see a little more European gasoline coming in to the U.S. There’s plenty of Gulf Coast production coming on line, and the Colonial pipeline will be full through August.”

The Colonial pipeline brings gasoline from the Gulf Coast up the East Coast to the New York area market.

“The market is well supplied and it will be better supplied as these refineries on the Gulf Coast are restarted and there are a lot of them being restarted. We still have another 700,000/800,000 of refining capacity that’s yet to return from extended spring maintenance,” said Kloza.

Kloza said refineries have used the typical seasonal downtime to make adjustments so they can produce a new lower sulfur marine fuel, required globally at the beginning of next year.

Kloza said gasoline prices have been under pressure, and RBOB peaked in May at about $2.12 per gallon before plummeting with oil prices, to a low below $1.70 this month. On Friday, it was at $1.85.

“The tremendous downdrafts we’ve seen looking at in gasoline have been arrested by things happening by the Straits of Hormuz, and this will at least stabilize gasoline futures,” Kloza said.

The energy and tech sectors pushed the S&P 500 to its record this week, rising 5.2% and 3.3%, respectively. Gold, meanwhile, surged around 4% and broke above $1,400 per ounce for the first time since 2013. Oil prices, however, left stocks and gold in the dust. The Fed also removed the word “patient” when describing its approach to monetary policy, nodding at the recently weaker economic data. Oil, meanwhile, surged as tensions between Iran and the U.S. flared up this week.

It was a monumental week for markets with major milestones in stocks, bonds, gold and oil

This week was chalk full of milestones on Wall Street as a Federal Reserve meeting and tensions in the Middle East conspired to send shockwaves across financial markets.

The S&P 500 climbed 2.3% this week and reached a new all-time high of 2,964.15 on Friday. The energy and tech sectors pushed the S&P 500 to its record this week, rising 5.2% and 3.3%, respectively.

Gold, meanwhile, surged around 4% and broke above $1,400 per ounce for the first time since 2013. Gold also had its best weekly gain since 2016.

Oil prices, however, left stocks and gold in the dust. West Texas Intermediate futures skyrocketed more than 9% this week, notching its biggest weekly gain since December 2016, when it surged more than 12%.

Treasurys also went through the roof this week, depressing yields. The benchmark 10-year yield hit a low of 1.973% this week, breaking below the key psychological 2% mark for the first time since November 2016.

The dollar, meanwhile, fell 1.3% against a basket of currencies, its biggest weekly drop since 2018. The U.S. currency also traded near its lowest level since March.

The Fed hinted at its monetary policy meeting it could cut rates as soon as July, stating it prepared to “act as appropriate” to sustain the current economic expansion. The Fed also removed the word “patient” when describing its approach to monetary policy, nodding at the recently weaker economic data.

This boosted stocks as lower rates makes it cheaper for companies to borrow money and grow their business or buy back their stock. The Fed’s announcement also boosted gold as lower rates depresses the dollar, making it cheaper for investors outside the U.S. to buy the precious metal.

Oil, meanwhile, surged as tensions between Iran and the U.S. flared up this week. A U.S. drone was shot down in Iranian airspace earlier in the week, stoking worries of potential supply disruptions in the Middle East.

Amazon shoppers spend more and shop more often if they have one-day shipping, survey says

Amazon shoppers who get same-day delivery are likely to spend and shop more on the e-commerce site compared with shoppers who don’t get same-day delivery, according to a recent survey by investment firm RBC Capital. 48% of same-day delivery customers said they spend over $800 a year on Amazon, compared with 33% of those without the same-day shipping option.

Amazon shoppers spend more and shop more often if they have one-day shipping, survey says

Amazon shoppers who get same-day delivery are likely to spend and shop more on the e-commerce site compared with shoppers who don’t get same-day delivery, according to a recent survey by investment firm RBC Capital.

The survey data shows why Amazon is heavily investing in shortening delivery time. In April, the company announced that it would spend $800 million this quarter alone to make one-day free shipping the default for its Prime members, down from the current two-day free shipping.

Here are some takeaways from the survey, which covered more than 1,900 people:

Higher spending: 48% of same-day delivery customers said they spend over $800 a year on Amazon, compared with 33% of those without the same-day shipping option.

48% of same-day delivery customers said they spend over $800 a year on Amazon, compared with 33% of those without the same-day shipping option. More frequent purchases: Same-day delivery users also shop more frequently on Amazon, with 77% of them saying they use Amazon at least two to three times a month versus 50% for customers who don’t use same-day delivery.

Same-day delivery users also shop more frequently on Amazon, with 77% of them saying they use Amazon at least two to three times a month versus 50% for customers who don’t use same-day delivery. More loyalty: Same-day delivery shoppers also turn out to have a higher intent to spend on Amazon in the next 12 months, while having a much higher satisfaction rate as well.

“The clear takeaway is that with One-Day and Same-Day Delivery, and Prime Now (1-2 hour delivery), Amazon is creating more convenience and greater selection for shoppers, which enhances the value proposition,” RBC Capital’s Mark Mahaney wrote in a note published Thursday. “The gap between same day delivery customers and other Amazon customers widened across all four categories — spend, purchase frequency, intent of spend, and satisfaction.”

The results are largely consistent with RBC’s surveys from the past four years, although the percentages of people who say they will spend more and shop more often have increased slightly, while customer satisfaction has trended downward.

Here are the survey results (click to enlarge):

Stocks making the biggest moves midday: Korn Ferry, Beyond Meat, Advanced Micro Devices & more

Traders and financial professionals work at the opening bell on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).

Check out the companies making headlines midday Friday:

Korn Ferry — Shares of Korn Ferry sank more than 17% on disappointing fourth-quarter results. The consulting firm reported a revenue of $491 million, below the $500 million Wall Street had expected, according to Refinitiv. The company also dialed back its first-quarter guidance. Its earnings slightly beat estimates.

Kroger — Shares of Kroger dipped nearly 4% after the supermarket chain reported quarterly results that underwhelmed investors. While Kroger’s fiscal first-quarter earnings and sales both beat analysts’ expectations slightly, revenue fell 1.2% to $37.25 billion and same-store sales were flat in the quarter. The company also kept its full-year profit forecast.

Advanced Micro Devices, Nvidia, Xilinx — Shares of semiconductors dropped after the Commerce Department barred five more Chinese entities from buying U.S. components after blacklisting telecom giant Huawei last month. Advanced Micro Devices tumbled more than 3%, while Xilinx and Nvidia also fell 2.2% and 1.5%, respectively

Beyond Meat — Shares of Beyond Meat tumbled more than 8%. Tyson Foods is reportedly ramping up its marketing spending to make a push into the alternative meat market. Also Shake Shack CEO told CNBC Friday that the fast food chain has no intention of adding Beyond Meat to menu right now. Beyond Meat’s stock has had a wild run, surging about 500% from its $25 IPO price to about $152 on Friday. The stock touched $200 a share on Tuesday, hitting a market cap of nearly $10 billion.

UnitedHealth Group — Shares of UnitedHealth Group rose more than 1.8% following a report by the Wall Street Journal that the health insurer has agreed to acquire health-payments firm Equian for about $3.2 billion. Equian is currently owned by private-equity firm New Mountain Capital.

Delta Air Lines — Delta Air Lines’ stock rose slightly after the airline company bought a 4.3% stake in Hanjin Kal, the parent company of Korean Air. Delta said it plans to increase the stake to 10%. The move is an expansion of Delta’s business in Asia after its joint venture with Korean Air which started last year.

Micron Technology — Shares of Micron fell 2.6% after J.P. Morgan cut its year-end price target for the chipmaker to $50 from $64. The bank expects the U.S. restrictions on Chinese telecom giant Huawei would have a negative impact on Micron because Huawei is a major customer, accounting for 13% of its sales in the first half of 2019.

Chevron — Shares of Chevron rose 0.57% after Chevron Phillips Chemical, a joint venture of Chevron and Phillips 66, made a $15 billion acquisition offer for Nova Chemicals, which is currently owned by Abu dhabi’s sovereign wealth fund Mubadala Investment. The acquisition would give Chevron Phillips Chemical the opportunity to expand as Nova Chemicals’s expandable polystyrene and resins are used in various industries from construction to packaging.
