&l;p class=&q;tweet_line&q;&g;More than half a million jobs around the world were created in the renewable energy sector in 2017 , bringing the total number of people employed in the sector to more than 10 million for the first time.

Figures from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) show that more than 70% of clean energy jobs are in just six countries &a;ndash; China, Brazil, the US, India, Germany and Japan &a;ndash; suggesting the sector has significant scope to continue growing in years to come.

IRENA&a;rsquo;s fifth &l;em&g;Renewable Energy and Jobs &a;ndash; Annual Review&l;/em&g; showed that the sector employs 10.3 million workers, with 60% of jobs in Asia. &a;ldquo;Although growing numbers of countries are reaping the socio-economic benefits of renewables, the bulk of manufacturing takes place in relatively few countries and domestic markets vary enormously in size,&a;rdquo; IRENA said.

Hot Stocks To Buy For 2019

If you’re having trouble translating your retirement savings into monthly income, don’t worry, you’re not alone.

In fact, more than half of all U.S. workers (ages 20 to 79) have difficulty understanding retirement savings in terms of future monthly income, according to research recently published by the LIMRA Secure Retirement Institute.

 For instance, roughly one in every two workers doesn’t know how much income a nest egg of, say, $1 million might generate each month. Is it $1,500, $3,000, $6,000 or some other amount?

The good news is that there are at least two ways for workers to easily estimate the figure, according to experts. 

The simplest way 

Rick Miller, founder and CEO of Sensible Financial Planning, and other experts recommend getting a quote for a single premium immediate annuity (SPIA). Doing so will give you a sense of how much monthly income you would receive for life from an annuity based on the value of your retirement nest egg.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Own For 2019

The flare-up in market volatility has left investors scratching their heads when it comes to the relative outperformance of the safest segment of the corporate bond universe over its riskiest.

With stocks coming under pressure this year, with the Dow
DJIA, -0.68%
and the S&P 500
SPX, -0.86%
struggling to reclaim their February all-time highs, bond buyers would be expected to turn their noses at high-yield issuers with burdensome debt loads and take shelter in the bonds of investment-grade firms, which carry more robust balance sheets. But instead, the two ends of the corporate debt market appear to have reversed their traditional roles, with investment-grade bonds struggling and high-yield debt, or junk, remaining at their lofty valuations.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Own For 2019: Orbital ATK, Inc.(OA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike. The union has announced that 260,000 UPS employees have authorized a strike should both sides fail to reach a labor deal by August 1. UPS is responsible for the transport of 6% of the nation’s gross domestic product.

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Own Right Now

When stock markets turn volatile many investors find it difficult to stay the course. Some investors want to sell off and want to hoard their cash. Some prefer to start buying the stocks that are falling the most. But such knee-jerk reactions may not create wealth for you. Here are five thoughts of Warren Buffett that may guide you in your investment actions in such volatile times.

It’s far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price.

Quality matters. Just because a company has fallen 20% from its 52 week high does not make it a great value buy. Do check the fundamentals of the company. Corrections in the market must be used to buy quality stocks for your long term portfolio. Buying them at a fair price makes sense for long term investors. Good businesses tend to compound their profits and reward the shareholders in the long term. Stick to companies that have exhibited decent business performance across business cycles.

Picking up the micro-cap stocks with great potentials may not reward you if the stories do not materialise as expected. If you have a dud stock in your portfolio, use the spikes to get rid of it. Use the proceeds to buy fundamentally strong companies.
