Former car salesman: The No. 1 mistake first-time car buyers make

Almost always, a car will end up costing you more than the sticker price — and not anticipating the true cost is “the absolute biggest mistake first-time buyers make,” says former car salesman Matt Jones, who is now the senior manager of insights at Edmunds, a car-review site. There’s also insurance, he adds, which can be higher for first-time buyers, as they’re typically on the younger side and don’t have as much driving experience. “Take a look at your car deal with a 360-degree view,” says Jo

Former car salesman: The No. 1 mistake first-time car buyers make

Almost always, a car will end up costing you more than the sticker price — and not anticipating the true cost is “the absolute biggest mistake first-time buyers make,” says former car salesman Matt Jones, who is now the senior manager of insights at Edmunds, a car-review site.

“People get fixated on their car payment,” Jones tells CNBC Make It, and forget to factor in all of the expenses that come with actually owning a vehicle, like gas, maintenance and repairs.

There’s also insurance, he adds, which can be higher for first-time buyers, as they’re typically on the younger side and don’t have as much driving experience.

“Take a look at your car deal with a 360-degree view,” says Jones. That means using sites like fueleconomy.gov to research fuel prices in your area and the gas mileage of the car you’re interested in buying. Next, get an auto insurance quote using sites like State Farm or Geico.

Dow and Nasdaq close at record highs amid expectations for the Fed to lower rates

Stocks closed at record highs on Wednesday as investors bet on a potential rate cut from the Federal Reserve later this month after the release of weaker-than-expected economic data.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 175 points, notching intraday and closing all-time highs. The Nasdaq Composite advanced 0.7%.

The S&P 500 also rose 0.7% as the real estate and consumer sectors powered the broad index to record levels. Tech also boosted the index, rising 0.7% to a record high. The S&P 500 closed just 0.1% below 3,000.

“The first time we get there you’ll probably see some profit-taking,” said Scott Redler, partner with T3live.com. “If technology continues to be strong and the semiconductors get some kind of bounce, that could probably push the S&P 500 through it 3,000. It’s good to see the FANG names show some power.”

Shares of Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google-parent Alphabet all rose on Wednesday. The session ended at 1 p.m. ET due to the Fourth of July holiday.

Private payrolls in the U.S. increased by 102,000 in June, ADP and Moody’s Analytics said. Economists polled by Dow Jones expected growth of 135,000.

The disappointing data strengthens the Fed’s case for lowering rates at its monetary policy meeting at the end of July. Last month, the central bank opened the door to easier monetary policy by stating it will “act as appropriate” to maintain the current economic expansion.

Personal branding: How to make your mark at work through 5 simple steps

All of us are looking to make a good impression when it comes to advancing our careers, and thanks to the digital age, there are all sorts of techniques to embrace if you’re looking to stand out from the crowd. Yet, one of the fundamental attributes you should have at your disposal is knowing how to market yourself effectively. “Your personal brand is your business armor — it’s how you get recognized and remembered. It is shorthand for everything you stand for,” writes Anna Jones, co-founder of networking club AllBright, in the recently-published book she co-wrote called “Believe. Build. Become. ”

Ultimately, this concise rundown of what you represent professionally allows you to showcase your personality, values and unique selling propositions (USPs). In “Believe. Build. Become. “, AllBright co-founders Anna Jones and Debbie Wosskow, offer practical advice for those hoping to develop their skills and mentality, to thrive as leaders and entrepreneurs — including how to construct your own personal brand.

Crafting your personal brand

Perfecting your USPs and elevator pitch Whether you’re selling a product or pitching an idea, having a unique selling point is paramount if you want to be memorable — and the same goes for creating a stellar personal brand. Consider what makes you stand out — whether that’s certain skills, achievements or characteristics that make you who you are — and then refine it into a succinct summary. For AllBright co-founder Debbie Wosskow, who launched three businesses prior to establishing the networking club for businesswomen, the serial entrepreneur has her own way of crafting an elevator pitch. “For me, it’s always (about having) three key messages and practice this in front of the mirror. And I would really think about what that is,” Wosskow told CNBC over the phone.

She added that it’s important to play this pitch out with your support network and ask for feedback. “It’s something Anna and I do a lot, asking ‘How did I come across?’ and ‘What do you think?’ And use that to define your USP and construct your personal brand,” Wosskow said, adding that jotting it all down is essential. Power of communication You may have an excellent personal summary, but if you cannot effectively communicate it, success may be a lot harder to obtain. As Jones notes, your communication style can illustrate a lot about who you are, and in the book, she recommends assertive communication, over passive or aggressive. “You can be forthright without being a bully, but equally you need to be empathetic without being submissive,” Jones writes, adding that it’s important to gauge how others will respond. Consider your body language and what signals it gives off to others. One way to go about this is power posing, which involves various parts of the body, like posture, maintaining eye contact and delivering confident handshakes. Meantime, listening to what others say and don’t say, can help boost relationships and potentially provide you with more insight into the other person’s intentions.

Another aspect to consider is how you communicate through what you write. As Jones states, “everything you write down should follow the same rules.” A CV for instance is the initial window into impressing a potential employer, so this professionalism and choice of language should be upheld throughout other work activities, whether that’s penning an email or report. Finally, practice makes perfect. To refine your communication style, keep speaking up. Be authentic Being true to who you are and your values while owning your actions not only offers others an insight into what to expect from you, but also can establish trust. In “Believe. Build. Become. “, Jones notes that while authenticity is essential, it should align with professionalism, meaning “acting in a way appropriate for the job.” One example Jones offers is being “a loud joker” — this behavior may help you bond with colleagues, but it’s unlikely that it’ll be appropriate for boardrooms. Another key point: Don’t undersell yourself. “What we can see with women and from what I’ve seen from being on the other side of the table as an investor, is women being apologetic or underselling themselves and their vision. A lot of this is around language and how they feel about themselves,” Wosskow tells CNBC, explaining the importance of having clear focus, while not being apologetic or unauthentic. Appearance In 2006, Princeton University researchers Alex Todorov and Janine Willis, conducted a study which suggested that our brains can decide whether a person is trustworthy or attractive within a tenth of a second. So, if you’re trying to impress a future employer or investor, it’s important to consider dressing the part.

One key example is the job interview, and management expert Suzy Welch has several tips on dressing the part, including doing your homework beforehand, not fretting about being overdressed and wearing confidence-boosting clothes. “During an interview, you should feel good about yourself,” Welch previously told CNBC. At the end of the day, it’s not only important to dress the part, but to feel comfortable — and let your confidence shine through. Standing out online How you present yourself online is important now, more than ever. Whether it’s your professional LinkedIn page or personal networking accounts, your online profile is “a very clear, very instant representation of your personal brand,” Jones writes. If you’re looking to win over a prospective employer or a future work contact, keep your online profile updated and professional. According to a 2018 survey by CareerBuilder, 70 percent of employers polled admitted to using social networking sites to research candidates who applied for a role. In addition, half or more of those bosses were checking to see the candidate’s qualifications matched their resume or if they had professional online persona. After you’ve created an online profile that reflects you, make sure it sells you in the best light. Think of it this way: you are the best person who can pitch yourself to others. For Wosskow, the most crucial tool to have in your personal brand toolkit is “being memorable.” As Jones notes, everybody can be searched for online, so make sure that “your digital footprint is one that you are happy with. If it’s not, change it, now.”

Stock futures rise ahead of US jobs report

U.S. stock index futures rose early Friday as Wall Street looks set for another day of gains as Wall Street awaited key jobs data.

At around 7 a.m. ET, Dow Jones Industrial Average futures pointed to a gain of 106 points at the open. S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures also indicated gains to start the day.

The Dow comes into Friday’s session riding a four-day winning streak as expectations for easier monetary policy from the Federal Reserve increased. The 30-stock index is also on pace to snap a six-week losing streak.

The Labor Department is scheduled to release the May job report at 8:30 a.m. ET. Economists polled by Dow Jones forecast employment in the U.S. grew by 180,000 jobs last month. The data comes amid worries over a potential economic slowdown while global trade tensions persist.

Talks between U.S. and Mexican officials continued Thursday afternoon, with Mexican ambassador to the U.S. Martha Barcena Coqui telling CNBC that negotiations involved a “very good discussion.”

Mexico has also agreed to send its national guard to its border with Guatemala to stem the flow of undocumented migrants hoping to reach the U.S., Reuters reported Thursday.

Markets will be monitoring Friday’s ongoing talks, after stocks surged Thursday on reports that the U.S. was considering delaying the imposition of a 5% tariff on Mexican imports, which is set to take effect on Monday.

Elsewhere, Russia weighed in on the escalating trade war between the U.S. and China Friday, with the head of its sovereign investment fund urging the U.S. to back up its claims that Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei represents a national security threat. The CEO of Russia’s top mobile operator MTS also told CNBC’s Geoff Cutmore that he did not believe warnings from U.S. officials.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 181.09 points Thursday, bringing total gains for the week to more than 900 points and putting it on course for the best week of the year. The S&P 500 rose 0.61% and the Nasdaq Composite gained 0.53%.

Botswana’s government lifted a 5-year ban on elephant hunting on Thursday, spurring criticism from wildlife conservation groups who see the move as a step backward in protecting the population.

The reversal has tipped off international controversy over wildlife protection, economic stimulus and ivory trading.

Botswana has the highest elephant population of any African country, with an estimated population between 120,000 and 130,000, according to Mark Jones, a veterinarian and the head of policy at the Born Free Foundation, a global wildlife conservation charity.

Jones said trophy hunting is unlikely to have any real impact on the population’s numbers — but is likely to harm the animals themselves.

“Elephants are highly intelligent creatures and will move away from areas where they are in danger,” Jones said. “Most of the countries surrounding Botswana allow [hunting] and many elephants have moved into Botswana because of the poaching in neighboring countries.”

Safari Club International, a U.S.-based hunting group praised the government’s stance, claiming that lifting the ban would be good for wildlife.

“We thank the President of Botswana and all others involved in Botswana for their forward thinking and having the courage to bypass doing what is easy in order to do what is right for the benefit of the wildlife of Botswana and the people of Botswana,” said SCI President Paul Babaz in a statement. “They need to be able to manage their own wildlife so that there will be more wildlife in wild places in harmony with the people for generations to come.”

The Botswana government claims there has been an increase in human-elephant conflict — a consequence of the growing elephant population — and elephant-related damage to livestock.

In Botswana elephants are not confined to fenced reserves. That allows them to migrate freely over large distances throughout the country, and even cross over into neighboring countries.

“We are concerned that hunting causes extreme stress to elephants, which are intelligent, thinking, communicating animals. The elephants begin to associate humans with violence and they retaliate — hence the large number of human fatalities,” Paula Kahumbu, CEO of nonprofit Wildlife Direct, said in a statement.

Still, experts maintain hunting is not a credible method of population control or an effective means to combat higher rates of violence and damage.

There are more humane and legitimate ways to litigate the size of the population and prevent them from crossing into crop-fields. The use of chili or the introduction of beehives have proved to be effective in doing so, Jones said.

Officials also say the ban has caused local communities to suffer as a result of the loss of income from trophy hunters.

“Most of the money generated by hunting is captured by the state and by the hunting companies. Communities make very little gain – studies have shown that less than 2% of the funds generated by hunting reach communities,” Kahumbu said.

Moreover, Botswana is one of four African states proposing the decriminalization of commercial trade of ivory, which is outlawed under international law. “Poaching for ivory is the biggest single threat to elephants,” Jones said.

The U.S., U.K. and China have all outlawed ivory trade.

There were reports of a number of elephants being poached just last year, according to Jones, but allowing the sale of ivory to resume in some countries would stimulate hunting of the animals and put them in grave danger.

Alex Jones was banned from Facebook, but an hour later he's still livestreaming about it

Facebook on Thursday announced that it is removing accounts for Louis Farrakhan, Alex Jones, InfoWars, Paul Nehlen, Milo Yiannopoulos, Paul Joseph Watson and Laura Loomer from both Facebook and Instagram. Facebook had originally pulled some content from Alex Jones, including four pages, in August.

Despite the so-called ban, Alex Jones’ InfoWars is already back online with a page titled “Infowars is Back” and a livestream where Alex Jones is talking about how he has been banned.

“Enforcement is happening as we speak, so accounts should be down shortly,” a Facebook spokesperson told CNBC in an email.

It’s yet another sign that while huge companies such as Facebook and YouTube have to fight to keep content under control, it’s tough for both to monitor and remove accounts and content that can pop right back up with new pages. It’s like a big game of whack-a-mole.

Facebook told NBC News earlier on Thursday that it had decided to ban the aforementioned accounts for various reasons, including calling for or carrying out acts of violence, following hateful ideologies, using hate speech or slurs and posting content that goes against Facebook’s policies.

Facebook said it is working to remove all pages, groups and accounts associated with the people listed above.

Other Instagram and Facebook accounts that were supposed to be affected by the ban were also still running about an hour after the announcement.

S&P is rolling out socially-minded index

S&P Dow Jones Indices, a unit of S&P Global Inc., is launching an environmental, social and governance version of its S&P 500 Index in an effort to meet increased investor demand for impact-investment products based on U.S. equities.

In the coming months, S&P DJI will also launch a global family of ESG indices based on its other widely tracked regional and country-specific large and mid-cap benchmarks used in the Americas; Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA); and the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.

The S&P 500 ESG Index (ticker: SPXESUP) will replicate the risk and return of the S&P 500 — the market-cap-weighted index of the 500-largest publicly traded companies in the U.S. — while integrating environmental, social and governance criteria, according to company officials.

The index will target 75% of the traditional S&P 500’s market capitalization at the industry level based on the Global Industry Classification Standard.

“We are excited to bring to market these innovative ESG indices and scores,” said Alex Matturri, CEO at S&P Dow Jones Indices. “Our philosophy as an independent index provider is to offer choice to investors.
