Waymo CEO John Krafcik: self-driving cars ‘getting close’

As I stepped into the back seat of Waymo’s self-driving minivan for a ride around the company’s test facility in Atwater, California, it felt like dozens of other times I had ridden in a minivan. That changed once I shut the door and I took off for a short drive where the minivan encountered pedestrians, stalled cars, bicyclists and a variety of staged scenarios. I experienced how many of us could be making trips when there’s no one behind the wheel. “We’re excited where we are right now,” Said

Samsung just completely shook up its leadership

Samsung Electronics announced a shakeup of its leadership on Tuesday and said it will maintain its current three co-CEO management structure.

Kinam Kim will replace the company’s Vice Chairman and CEO Oh-Hyun Kwon who earlier this month announced his decision to step down from management. Kim will head the device solutions business.

Kim served as the president of the semiconductor business at Samsung and is a seasoned veteran at the company, having joined in 1981. He led developments of various memory technologies and is said to have been Kwon’s “right-hand man” in Samsung’s hierarchy.

In other leadership changes, Hyunsuk Kim will replace Boo-Keun Yoon as president and head of the consumer electronics business. Hyunsuk Kim previously served as the head of Samsung’s visual display business.

Meanwhile Dongjin Koh will take over from Jong-Kyun Shin as president and head of the IT and mobile communications business — the division that oversees Samsung’s family of smartphones.

Koh oversaw the development of Samsung’s flagship Galaxy smartphones and was responsible for the turnaround efforts following the botched Galaxy Note 7 launch last year.

Boo-Keun Yoon and Jong-Kyun Shin said they have decided to follow Kwon and make way for new leaders, according to Samsung.

The new appointments are effective immediately.

Meanwhile, Sang-Hoon Lee leaves his position as the company’s chief financial officer, effective immediately. Samsung said Lee has been “recommended by outside Board members to be Chairman of the Board and succeed Mr. Kwon next March.”

Gold holds steady as dollar eases

Gold held steady early on Tuesday as the dollar eased after reports that two former aides of U.S. President Donald Trump were charged by federal authorities probing Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Spot gold was little changed at $1,276.32 per ounce at 1254 GMT. The yellow metal has shed about 0.2 percent so far in October, in what could be its second straight monthly decline.

U.S. gold futures for December delivery were little changed at $1,277.30.

The dollar index against a basket of currencies held on to its losses from the previous session, when it fell about 0.4 percent.

Federal investigators charged Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and another aide, Rick Gates, with money laundering on Monday. A third former Trump adviser, George Papadopoulos, pleaded guilty in early October to lying to the FBI, it was announced on Monday.

Trump is likely to pick Federal Reserve Governor Jerome Powell as the next head of the central bank, a source familiar with the matter said on Monday, prompting investors to push down yields on Treasury notes. Trump is expected to announce his choice on Thursday.

John Kelly: ‘The lack of an ability to compromise led to the Civil War’

John Kelly: 'The lack of an ability to compromise led to the Civil War'

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly on Monday said, “the lack of an ability to compromise led to the Civil War.”

Speaking to Fox News, Kelly offered a view of history in which both sides of the Civil War — a pro-slavery Confederacy and the opposing Union — were made up of “men and women of good faith.”

Kelly’s views echoed those of his boss, President Donald Trump, who claimed that “both sides” were to blame after violence broke out during a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia that claimed the life of an anti-racism protester.

“There are certain things in history that were not so good, and other things that were very, very good,” Kelly said. “I think we make a mistake as a society, and certainly as individuals, when we take what is accepted as right and wrong, and go back 100, 200, 300 years or more and say, ‘What Christopher Columbus did was wrong.'”

“Five hundred years later, it’s inconceivable to me that you would take what we think now and apply it back then. I just think it’s very very dangerous. It shows you how much of a lack of appreciation of history and what history is,” said Kelly, a retired Marine Corps General.

Kelly then explained his view of the Civil War: “[Confederate General] Robert E. Lee was an honorable man who gave up his country to fight for his state,” Kelly said. “One hundred and fifty years ago, that was more important than country — it was always loyalty to state back in those days. Now it’s different. But the lack of an ability to compromise led to the Civil War, and men and women of good faith on both sides made their stand where their conscience had them make their stand.”

Kelly did not elaborate about what compromise would have prevented a war fought over the future of slavery in the United States. Southern U.S. states began seceding from the Union in December 1860, following the election one month earlier of President Abraham Lincoln, whose Republican Party had strong anti-slavery sentiments. The economy of the mostly agricultural South was at that time dependent on massive-scale, slave labor.

CNBC reached out to the White House late Monday to clarify what compromises Kelly believes were lacking in the lead-up to to the Civil War, and will update this post with any response.

Correction: This story has been updated to correct the wording in one of John Kelly’s quotations.

BNP Paribas profits rise after asset sale, but revenues sink amid weak fixed-income trading

French bank BNP Paribas posted forecast-beating third-quarter earnings Tuesday with net profit seeing an 8 percent rise from the same period last year.

Here are the highlights:

Net income up 8.3 percent at 2.04 billion euros ($2.37 billion), versus Reuters poll of 1.91 billion euros

Revenue down 1.8 percent to 10.39 billion euros, versus Reuters poll of 10.6 billion euros

Third-quarter costs down 1.2 percent to 7.13 billion euros, compared to a year ago

Earnings were boosted by the sale of a stake in Indian life insurance company SBI Life which led to a 326 million euro capital gain for the bank.

However, group revenues at the bank totaled 10.3 billion euros ($11.9 billion), down 1.8 percent year-on-year, due to an unfavorable exchange rate, the bank said.

It also reported a weak performance at its corporate and institutional banking (CIB) division against what the bank called “unfavorable” market conditions. There was also a steep drop in revenues at its fixed income division.

South Korea, China agree to normalize relations after THAAD fallout

Seoul and Beijing have agreed to work swiftly to get their relations back on track following a year-long standoff over the deployment of a U.S. anti-missile system in South Korea which hurt trade and South Korean business interests in China.

The installation of the U.S. Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system in South Korea had angered China, which believed its powerful radar could be used to look inside its territory. South Korea and the United States have repeatedly said THAAD only serves to defend against the growing missile threat from North Korea.

“Both sides shared the view that the strengthening of exchange and cooperation between Korea and China serves their common interests and agreed to expeditiously bring exchange and cooperation in all areas back on a normal development track,” South Korea’s foreign ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in will hold a summit meeting with China’s President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of an upcoming summit of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) countries in Vietnam on Nov. 10-11, a Blue House official said in a separate briefing on Tuesday.

In a coordinated statement, China’s foreign ministry said the two countries have agreed to get their relations back onto a normal track “at an early date”.

South Korea recognizes China’s concerns on the THAAD issue and made it clear that the deployment was not aimed at any third country and did not harm China’s strategic security interests, China’s foreign ministry said.

Halloween’s big spenders are millennials

Costume purchases made up almost half of that, with partygoers spending just over $70 on their disguises, LendEDU said. More than $60 will be spent on treats and a little less than $40 on decorations, including the prerequisite jack-o-lantern.

Halloween's big spenders are millennials

The scariest thing about Halloween may be the unintentional expenses.

Between costumes, decorations and, of course, candy, the average American will be shelling out $169.81, according to a recent poll by LendEDU.

Costume purchases made up almost half of that, with partygoers spending just over $70 on their disguises, LendEDU said. More than $60 will be spent on treats and a little less than $40 on decorations, including the prerequisite jack-o-lantern.

Altogether, the total amount spent on the spooky season is forecast to reach a record high of $9.1 billion, with 179 million Americans planning to partake in Halloween festivities, up from 171 million in 2016, according to the National Retail Federation.

That survey also found that a record number of adults, or 48 percent, plan to dress in a costume this year. (Pets are also getting in on the action.)

Millennials, in particular, are outspending other generations by about 2-to-1, according to a separate survey by CIT Bank.

Want to dip your toes into the oil market? Here’s how to do it

The recent bounce in oil could be creating a rare buying opportunity in a beaten energy name, according to one market watcher.

Crude rallied to its highest level since March 1 on Monday after Bank of America and JPMorgan bumped up their forecasts for oil. According to Max Wolff, chief economist at Disruptive Technology, Exxon Mobil could soon reap the benefits.

“We like the low cost of capital, we think the dividend play is exciting, and it allows people to take a bit of a foot and shove it deeper into water,” Wolff said Monday on CNBC’s “Power Lunch.”

Exxon shares have been on somewhat of a stealth rally of late, surging nearly 10 percent from their August low. The energy giant also sports a dividend yield of 3.7 percent.

Wolff warned investors shouldn’t go all-in on the energy space, and crude has seen steep and volatile swings time and time again.

“Make sure that this time, it’s for real. There has been a lot of false starts, but still get paid the dividend and still be in somewhat of a defensive name,” he said. “We think this is an interesting space, but there’s a lot of opacity, a lot of political risk … it’s hard to get super excited about joining the bandwagon now, even though it looks like there’s a little further to go.”

Boris Schlossberg, managing director of FX strategy at BK Asset Management, is still suspicious of Monday’s rally, even if he agrees that a big oil name like Exxon Mobil could be a good play in the near term.

“I’m skeptical about the rally because I think the rally, for the most part, is really due to the weakness in the dollar and the fact that the Saudis have really tried to ramp it above $50 to get [the Saudi Aramco IPO done],” he said.

“I think overall, it’s still very much an alternative energy trade in the sense that oil is getting shoved out of the equation more and more as we go forward,” added Schlossberg.

The strategist believes that oil could run up to $60, but then investors shouldn’t expect the commodity to break through that level. Meanwhile, crude has surged around 5 percent this month.

This couple retired in their 30s—here's exactly what their budget looks like

Steve Adcock, 36, and his wife Courtney, 32, set aside up to 70 percent of their IT salaries in order to retire early.

Shortly after quitting their jobs, the couple left their home-base in Tuscon, Arizona, in order to travel the country full-time in a 30-foot Airstream trailer.

Their lifestyle “no longer depends on any source of income,” Adcock writes on his blog, ThinkSaveRetire. “Any money that we bring in by working for fun is icing on the cake.”

To make sure their savings last through retirement, the Adcocks plan to spend about 3 percent of their total net worth each year. That comes out to about $33,000 per year — or, $2,800 per month.
