  • Alternative, smart beta products face their biggest test

    The volatile, nerve-wracking market is quickly bringing investors to a point where they’ll be able to determine if they were sold a bill of goods when they bought alternative and “smart-beta” mutual funds and ETFs.

    If results are ugly, investors might bail out on the new strategies as quickly as they adopted them.

    “Alt funds” and smart-beta issues have been all the rage for a few years in the financial world, but no one wakes up one morning and says “I want to buy something complicated and hard to explain.”

    Instead, these products are sold and the advisers pushing them — and fund companies

  • N. Korea orders military takeover of inter-Korean factory

    PAJU, South Korea (AP) — North Korea on Thursday ordered a military takeover of a factory park that was the last major symbol of cooperation with South Korea, saying Seoul's suspension of operations at the jointly run facility was a "dangerous declaration of war."

    Pyongyang said it was immediately deporting the hundreds of South Koreans who work at the complex just across the world's most heavily armed border in the city of Kaesong, pulling out the tens of thousands of North Korean employees and freezing all South Korean assets. The North also said it was shutting down two crucial cross-border communication hotlines.

    An immediate worry in Seoul was whether all South Korean workers would be allowed to leave; some analysts speculated that Pyongyang would hold onto some to get all the wages owed North Korean workers.

    Some South Korean workers left Kaesong before the North's announcement, and a handful of others were seen leaving afterward, but South Korean officials didn't know what would

    Opel Ampera-e - pictures from GM Opel Ampera-e - pictures from GM General Motors will launch a European version of its Chevrolet Bolt battery-only electric car next year to be called the Opel Ampera-e.

    GM Europe owns Opel and Vauxhall, which sell identical cars across Europe. Opel sells in mainland Europe, while Vauxhall sells the same cars with its badge in Britain.

    GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra unveiled the five-door, five seat car at the CAR symposium in Bochum, Germany.

    She didn’t mention the Chevrolet Bolt, but said the Ampera-e will have a longer range on a full charge than most electric cars and will be affordably priced. She gave no details, but the Bolt has a claimed range of 200 miles and will go on sale in the U.S. by the end of this year, priced at $30,000 after federal tax credits.OpelAmperae2

    Most electric cars currently on sale have difficulty in reaching 100 miles on a charge regularly.

    The game-changing technology of the Ampera-e is a significant step towards realizing that vision,” Barra said in a statement.

    Shares in Societe Generale are being hit hard after the French bank warned it would not achieve a targeted increase in profitability this year.

  • Occupiers at Oregon refuge say they'll turn themselves in

    BURNS, Ore. (AP) — The last four armed occupiers of a national wildlife refuge in eastern Oregon said they would turn themselves in Thursday morning after law officers surrounded them in a tense standoff.

    The last four armed occupiers of a national wildlife refuge in eastern Oregon said they would turn themselves in Thursday morning after the FBI and other officers surrounded them in a tense standoff.

    The development came as Cliven Bundy — who led a Nevada standoff with federal officers in 2014 and who is also the father of the jailed leader of the Oregon standoff — was arrested in Portland.

    The four occupiers yelled at officers to back off and prayed with supporters over an open phone line as the standoff played out on the Internet Wednesday night via a phone line being livestreamed by an acquaintance of occupier David Fry.

    Fry, 27, of Blanchester, Ohio, sounded increasingly unraveled as he continually yelled, at times hysterically, at what he said was an FBI negotiator. "You're going to

    The Zika virus emerging in South and Central America is an acute reminder of the cost of major outbreaks of serious infectious diseases on a financially strapped world.

    The direct expense of containing and controlling the Zika virus will be significant. Humanitarian and medical aid to West Africa in the wake of the Ebola crisis, for example, has run into the billions of dollars.
