Best Buy could fall victim to the retail apocalypse
George Frey/Getty Best Buy's attempts to fend off the looming retail apocalypse took a huge hit on Tuesday. At its first investor day since 2012, the company issued long-term forecasts that fell short of analyst expectations, stoking fears that mounting competition from the likes of Amazon will eat into future profits. The reaction from investors was swift and punishing, as Best Buy's stock dropped as much as 10% to $51.61, wiping out roughly $1.7 billion in market value at its lows for the day.

How you can become a millionaire even if you only make $35K a year
You work hard for your money and your money should be working hard for you. But if you're just starting a career, you're probably more concerned about making ends meet rather than jumping into the stock market. Stop the excuses! You don't need a ton of money when you have something more valuable...time! The math here is simple. Let's just say that you're a 22-year-old making $35,000 a year. If you put 10% of your salary into a 401(k), you'll end up with $1.1 million by the time you are 65, according to an online 401(k) calculator. That assumes just a 2% annual raise each year and if your employer contributes nothing to your 401(k). Many employers do contribute - and that's free money. You can buy all the avocado toast you want then.
