The only real guarantee you'll have in creating your retirement plan is that it won't look like anyone else's. Everyone has a unique set of circumstances that includes both financial and non-financial risks and considerations. While it's important to get the financial piece right, don't forget that one size most definitely does not fit all when it comes to retirement planning. Below, you'll find some of the more popular retirement myths -- and their corresponding realities.
(Bloomberg) -- New York has a warning for hedge fund managers: Pay your taxes like everybody else.Officials delivered the message as they announced that Thomas Sandell and his hedge fund, Sandell Asset Management Corp., would pay $105 million to New York, the biggest fine of its kind in the state, after being accused of faking a move to Florida to avoid paying state and city taxes in 2017 on deferred fee revenue of nearly half a billion dollars.Read more: Billionaire fund manager to pay $105 million in tax case“Tax revenues pay for vital city services. When a deadly pandemic has eviscerated the economy and severely strained our city’s budget, every dollar counts,” said New York City Corp. Counsel James Johnson. “Hedge funds are obligated to pay taxes just like everybody else, and when they don’t, we’ll use our legal tools and strategies to hold them accountable. Period.”Several high profile managers have opened offices in Florida in recent months and Elliott Management Corp. moved its headquarters there. The hefty fine suggest that New York state and city will eye any moves to ensure that relocations are real and not just a tax dodge.The Sunshine State, which has no individual income, estate or capital gains taxes, has been trying to lure investment firms from New York and the Northeast for years and the the trend has accelerated during the pandemic.In the settlement, reached under New York’s False Claims Act, neither Sandell nor his company admitted or denied the allegations, according to the statement. The $105 million was sent by wire on Tuesday, according to the attorney general’s office.(Updates with payment in last paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Figure 1 Location of IP Line and Resistivity, Chargeability and Mag Inversion Sections for Mercedes Target Figure 2 Location of IP Line and Resistivity, Chargeability and Mag Inversion Sections for Cindy Target VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Marimaca Copper Corp. (“Marimaca Copper” or the “Company”)(TSX: MARI) is pleased to announce the results of induced polarization (“IP”) surveys completed at the Mercedes and Cindy Targets (“Mercedes” and “Cindy”) located 3km and 5km to the north of the Company’s flagship Marimaca Copper Project. The surveys have identified extensive high chargeability anomalies, and significant resistivity lows which could represent potential oxide mineralization at each target. Highlights Extensive high chargeability anomalies identified at both Cindy and Mercedes, indicating widespread presence of sulphide mineralizationCoincident with the previously announced magnetic and surface geochemical anomalies at each target Resistivity lows identified may highlight potential for significant oxide mineralization below thin surface cover IP survey results complement the copper geochemical anomalies found at both targets and in combination, will aid drill hole planning for the upcoming exploration campaignResults provide additional information regarding structural controls of mineralization and continue to add to the geological understanding of the Marimaca districtMapping and sampling underway at the Robles Target, located east north east of MarimacaFirst drill rig now onsite and drilling of Marimaca Sulphide Target is in progress. Sergio Rivera, VP Exploration of Marimaca Copper, commented: “As with our flagship Marimaca project, the IP surveys at Mercedes and Cindy highlighted extensive chargeability anomalies, largely coincident with both the magnetic and the broad copper geochemical anomalies previously identified at each target. “Of note are the relatively large, laterally and vertically extensive resistivity lows which occur in the interpreted supergene portion of the systems at Cindy and Mercedes. At Marimaca, the resistivity lows were coincident with the Marimaca Oxide Deposit. Extending this interpretation to Mercedes and Cindy would suggest similar potential for meaningful oxide mineralization. “We are excited by the geological similarities between Marimaca, Cindy and Mercedes – strongly fractured intrusive host rocks; cross cutting dyke swarms and faults; association of magnetite and copper sulphides; similar weathering profiles – and we look forward to drilling them over the coming weeks and months. “We are also conducting mapping and sampling at our new target at Robles and this is shaping up to be another potentially significant oxide target. We hope to delineate drill targets there for testing in the first half of 2021. “Drill rigs are now turning at the Marimaca Sulphide Target and we are also preparing to drill the district targets commencing with Cindy and followed by Mercedes and Robles.” Overview of Induced Polarization Survey and Results Following the success of the IP survey completed over the MOD (refer to release 2 February 2021), the Company completed similar surveys at both the Mercedes and Cindy Targets which are located 3km and 5km to the north of the Company’s flagship Marimaca Copper Project, respectively. As with the previous survey, the objective was to identify potential areas of sulphide mineralization in proximity to the magnetic (refer to release 23 September 2020) and copper geochemical anomalies (refer to releases 9 December 2020 and 17 February 2021) identified through previous exploration work. The IP method was selected because of its deep penetration and high levels of resolution in detecting sulphide mineralization. The surveys were completed by GRS Chile Ltda. and consisted of a single 3.5km east-west line at Mercedes and a second 4.0km east-west line at the Cindy target. Figure 1: Location of IP Line and Resistivity, Chargeability and Mag Inversion Sections for Mercedes Target - https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/4b51e247-f538-4b01-8cf6-92cc9f6409c1 As at Marimaca, the survey highlighted an anomalous resistivity low (darker colours) coincident with the interpreted supergene zone at both Mercedes and Cindy. At Marimaca, these resistivity lows are coincident with the upper, highly fractured, supergene altered, intrusive host rock, containing the supergene oxide copper blanket which makes up the Marimaca Oxide Deposit. The similar resistivity lows at both Mercedes and Cindy appear to be consistent with this interpretation (see Figures 1 and 2). Again, with remarkable similarity to Marimaca, the IP chargeability highs show broad, laterally extensive, blanket like distributions for both targets (see Figures 1 and 2). These anomalies appear to be controlled by the major Naguayán Fault System and have a similar orientation to those at Marimaca.

Britain will give supermarkets and suppliers more time to adapt to post-Brexit trading rules with Northern Ireland, suggesting there would be a new plan to try to minimise disruption that has impeded deliveries of some goods, notably food. After leaving the EU last year, Britain agreed a free trade deal with the bloc to leave its single market and customs union, which came into force at the beginning of this year. But with Northern Ireland, which has a land border with EU member Ireland, having a foot in both camps as part of the UK's customs territory while still aligned with the single market for goods, the new rules have caused disruption.
Topline data from two ongoing COVID-19 studies with KB109 expected in Q1 2021 KB295 study in patients with ulcerative colitis remains on track with topline data anticipated mid-year 2021 LEXINGTON, Mass., March 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kaleido Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: KLDO), a clinical-stage healthcare company with a differentiated, chemistry-driven approach to targeting the microbiome to treat disease and improve human health, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020. “In 2020, our Company achieved several important financial and clinical milestones that have positioned us for a productive and busy year ahead. Supported by our recently completed financing, we are beginning the year with a strong cash position, enabling continued growth and expansion of our broad, Microbiome Metabolic Therapies (MMTTM)-based pipeline,” said Dan Menichella, President and Chief Executive Officer of Kaleido. “Recently we reported positive interim results from K031, one of two ongoing non-IND controlled clinical studies of KB109 evaluating outpatients with mild-to-moderate COVID-19 disease. Results demonstrated favorable safety and tolerability as well as evidence of clinical benefit for subjects reporting one or more comorbidities. We look forward to reporting data from both of our KB109 studies in the first quarter of 2021, including the full study population in the K031 study as well as topline results from the K032 study.” Continued Mr. Menichella: “While our immediate priority remains advancing KB109 in COVID-19, we continue to make strong progress across our entire pipeline of novel, targeted, MMT therapies. We are currently enrolling patients in our recently initiated study of KB295 for the treatment of mild-to-moderate ulcerative colitis with topline data targeted for mid-year and continue to advance our Phase 2 clinical trial with KB195 in patients with urea cycle disorder. We are also looking forward to advancing our preclinical programs, particularly in immuno-oncology, cardiometabolic and liver diseases, and around an existing partnership with Janssen to deepen our understanding of how MMTs could potentially play a role in the prevention of childhood-onset atopic and immune conditions.” Recent Program and Corporate Highlights Interim analysis (n=176) from a controlled non-IND clinical study of KB109 in patients with mild-to-moderate COVID-19 demonstrates favorable safety and tolerability, and provides strong signal of clinical benefit for subjects reporting one or more comorbidities In February, Kaleido closed a public offering with gross proceeds of approximately $69.4 million, before deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and other offering expenses Anticipated Near-Term Milestones Topline data from full study population (n=350) from a non-IND clinical study of KB109 in patients with mild-to-moderate COVID-19 as well as results from a second similar study expected in Q1 2021 Topline data from a non-IND clinical study of KB295 in patients with mild-to-moderate ulcerative colitis (UC) expected in mid-2021 Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2020 Financial Results Kaleido reported a net loss of $20.0 million, or $0.56 per common share, for the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to $19.5 million, or $0.65 per common share, for the same period in 2019. For the full year 2020, Kaleido reported a net loss of $81.6 million, or $2.44 per common share, compared to $86.3 million, or $3.36 per common share, for the prior year. The 2020 fourth quarter net loss includes non-cash stock-based compensation expenses of $2.8 million, as compared to $2.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. The full year 2020 net loss included non-cash stock-based compensation expenses of $12.7 million, as compared to $10.1 million in 2019. Research and development (R&D) expenses were $14.3 million and $14.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. R&D expenses were $56.0 million and $64.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The full year decrease was primarily due to reduced headcount in our R&D function and less spend with external support for our clinical studies with external CROs and external CMOs and preclinical and clinical development activities. These decreases were partially offset by increased professional and consulting spend related to our studies and increased operating costs related to our facility expansion. General and administrative (G&A) expenses were $5.2 million and $4.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. G&A expenses were $23.9 million and $22.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The full year increase was primarily due to the modification of the vesting provision of stock options and restricted stock units related to the resignation of our former CEO and increased operating costs related to our facility expansion. These increases were partially offset by reduced headcount in our G&A functions. As of December 31, 2020, the Company reported cash and cash equivalents of $46.2 million. Following the close of the February 2021 public offering, the Company has cash runway into the first quarter of 2022.

Brazil's economy shrank last year by 4.1% amid the pandemic, data showed on Wednesday, the worst drop in decades, but not as much as originally expected due to cash transfers to the poor. Latin America's largest economy grew by 3.2% in the fourth quarter, according to official statistics agency IBGE, more than the 2.8% median estimate in a Reuters poll of economists. The full-year 4.1% drop was the worst since the current IBGE series began in 1996.

(Bloomberg) -- European Central Bank policy makers see no need for drastic action to combat rising bond yields, believing the risk to the economy is manageable with verbal interventions and the flexibility of their asset-purchase program, according to officials familiar with internal discussions.While multiple Governing Council members have spoken out to say that higher yields may be unwarranted and could undermine the euro zone as it struggles with extended pandemic lockdowns, there is no sense of panic, the officials said.A step such as expanding the overall size of their 1.85 trillion-euro ($2.24 trillion) emergency bond-buying program is currently unnecessary, they said. They didn’t say whether the pace of purchases has been stepped up in recent days, using the much-touted flexibility of the tool.One official noted that yields fell on Monday after some policy makers said the ECB would react against unwarranted increases.An ECB spokesman declined to comment.“We should keep a close eye on developments and analyze the reasons. We are of course capable of flexibly adjusting the volume of PEPP implementation at any moment,” Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann said on Wednesday at a press conference, when asked about rising yields. “But in my view there has been no radical deterioration of financing conditions.”Bank of Spain Governor Pablo Hernandez de Cos said at a separate event that rising yields may reflect market expectations of an earlier start to unwinding monetary stimulus, and that “avoiding premature increases in nominal interest rates” is essential.German bonds fell on Wednesday, led by the longest-dated debt, pushing 10-year yields up as much as four basis points to minus 0.31%, before drawing back. The euro climbed 0.1%, before reversing gains to trade 0.2% lower at $1.2063.Executive Board member Fabio Panetta addressed the topic on Tuesday, saying the jump in government-bond yields “is unwelcome and must be resisted.” He also said it is “not too late” to act.A day earlier, French Governing Council member Francois Villeroy de Galhau said that the ECB “can and must react” to any unwarranted moves threatening to undermine the economy. Vice President Luis de Guindos argued that it’s important to understand why bond yields have risen, and said officials “have the flexibility that is needed in order to react.”More policy makers are scheduled to speak on Wednesday, including Bank of Spain Governor Pablo Hernandez de Cos as well as Guindos.Yields on euro-area debt have risen since mid-February, when expectations for reflation kicked a global bond selloff into high gear. Greek and Italian 10-year yields led the charge, climbing about 20 basis points in the past two weeks.Core European debt was also ensnared, with benchmark German yields climbing to levels last seen in March 2020 and French yields turning positive for the first time since June.Higher government bond yields pose a problem for the euro area because they are used by banks as a reference point for lending. The region’s recovery is already expected to be slower than that of many other advanced economies, in part due to its slow vaccine roll-out, and higher borrowing costs could further damp momentum.Yields are being pushed up by a global sell-off of longer-term government bonds originating in the U.S. where prospects of another dose of massive fiscal stimulus are bolstering the economy.Fire FightingFigures published this week surprised investors by showing that the central bank actually slowed purchasing last week, despite President Christine Lagarde saying policy makers are “closely monitoring” the rise in nominal bond yields.Those figures don’t reflect orders made Thursday and Friday, as transactions take a couple of days to settle and show up in the central bank’s accounts. This week’s purchasing data will be published next Monday and Tuesday.Investors have been closely watching for any signs of market intervention by the ECB. Vincent Juvyns, a strategist at JPMorgan Asset Management, said on Bloomberg radio that in contrast to the U.S., where the economy is being boosted by massive stimulus, “it is probably too early to allow rates to rise in Europe.”“I would hope and expect that the ECB would be a bit fire-fighting with additional buying in the coming weeks and months,” he said.(Updates with comment from De Cos in seventh paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
Dublin, March 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Electric Kick Scooters Market By Battery (Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion), Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) and Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH)), By Voltage (36V, Below 24V, 48V and Greater than 48V), By Region, Industry Analysis and Forecast, 2020 - 2026" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. The Global Electric Kick Scooters Market size is expected to reach $4.9 billion by 2026, rising at a market growth of 12.3% CAGR during the forecast period. In recent years, the evolution of kick scooters as a cost-efficient urban commuting alternative has gained popularity. This is primarily because they provide easy to use and stylish design feature. Rapid advancements in the electric scooter sharing industry are also anticipated to create lucrative growth possibilities for the kick scooter market during the forecast period.Various countries like the U.S, France, Spain, and Germany have witnessed a considerable increase in the adoption of kick scooters in the past few years, a pattern anticipated to remain the same during the forecast years. In addition to this, electric scooter sharing start-ups are forming a partnership with leading manufacturers in the market to increase their customer base and improve their product offerings in the market. The demand for electric scooter sharing services is expected to be fueled by the increasing awareness about environment-friendly transportation alternatives, less expensive transportation, lower requirement for parking space, and simple to use options in traffic-congested cities.In 2020, the overall micro-mobility industry was adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Various electric scooter startups, like Bird and Lime, laid off their employees because of sluggish demand. However, these are temporary repercussions of the pandemic and the micro-mobility industry is anticipated to renew in the next few years. Moreover, the market is anticipated to exhibit growth due to the increasing demand for eco-friendlier and hassle-free transportation alternatives, due to a surge in demand after COVID-19, and supportive government policies.By BatteryBased on Battery, the market is segmented into Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion), Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) and Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH). The lithium-ion battery acquired the highest market size of the electric kick scooters industry. Li-Ion batteries offer performance and environmental benefits in comparison to sealed lead-acid batteries, which is anticipated to make Li-Ion technology the global traditional battery technology for electric kick scooters during the forecast period. Moreover, sealed lead-acid batteries include the probability of lead contamination during the process of manufacturing and disposal. Therefore, manufacturers favor Li-Ion batteries over sealed lead-acid batteries for electric kick scooters.By VoltageBased on Voltage, the market is segmented into 36V, Below 24V, 48V and Greater than 48V. Those electric kick scooters with a voltage higher than 48V provide benefits with respect to the range. These kick scooters release carbon dioxide at bearable cost levels. Functionalities like air conditioning compressors and turbocharges are offered by 48V products and these features are hard to install in 12V or 24V scooters. The urgent requirement to decrease carbon footprints is expected to boost the demand for high voltage electric kick scooters during the forecast period.By RegionBased on Regions, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa. In 2019, the Asia Pacific region maintained the biggest revenue share. The massive revenue share of the regional market is due to the existence of various OEM like SEGWAY INC., Xiaomi, Jiangsu Xinri E-Vehicle Co. Ltd., and YADEA Technology Group Co., Ltd., in China. These companies acquire a major portion of their revenue by selling their scooters to electric scooter sharing service providers across the world. Various governments around the world like China, Japan, and India, are formulating mandates and regulations for vehicle charging infrastructure, which is anticipated to create lucrative growth opportunities for regional growth during the forecast period.The market research report covers the analysis of key stake holders of the market.

Shares from Asia to Europe gained on Wednesday, as a retreat in U.S. Treasury yields fuelled demand for riskier assets from oil to bitcoin and kept the dollar pinned down. The Euro STOXX 600 added 0.5%, with Frankfurt shares climbing 1% to a record high and London's FTSE gaining 1.1% before the UK's new budget is introduced, with measures to boost the economy. Euro zone government bond yields were little changed, with the benchmark German 10-year Bund yield flat at -0.34%.
