AMD to buy chip peer Xilinx for $35 billion in data center push
Little is known about how gases and aerosols made by ocean microbes affect weather and climate, or how pollution could influence this process. Today, scientists report they've used an 'ocean-in-a-lab' to show that air pollution can change the makeup of gases and aerosols that sea spray releases into the atmosphere, potentially altering weather patterns.

Oppenheimer: These 3 Stocks Are Poised to Surge by at Least 60%
It's down to the wire. The U.S. Presidential elections are only a week away, and with the polls showing Biden has an edge over President Trump, investors are preparing.Oppenheimer's Chief Investment Strategist John Stoltzfus points out that last week, stocks churned as investors rebalanced their portfolios, rotating and adding additional exposure to value stocks "while others took profits in growth names that had previously run-up substantially ahead of what could be higher capital gains and other taxes next year," in the event that the Democrats come out on top.Highlighting that the expectation of an effective COVID-19 vaccine is behind the broadening of investor appetite for equities, Stoltzfus argues this renewed appetite " improves the attractiveness of value stocks."Going forward, the strategist notes the Federal Reserve's efforts "underscore the case for the economy's recovery and the equity markets' resilience and potential from here." Although a "blue wave" is seen as a potential risk, Stoltzfus thinks this outcome is very unlikely, and that continued split control should alleviate market worries.Taking Stoltzfus' outlook into consideration, our attention turned to three stocks Oppenheimer analysts believe can surge by at least 70% in the year ahead. Running the tickers through TipRanks' database, we found out that each boasts a "Strong Buy" consensus rating from the broader analyst community.Chromadex (CDXC)Focused on improving the way people age, Chromadex operates as a science-based integrated

The 2021 Capital Gains Tax Rate Thresholds Are Out - What Rate Will You Pay?
If you sell stocks, mutual funds or other capital assets that you held for at least one year, any gain from the sale is taxed at either a 0%, 15% or 20% rate. Those tax rates for long-term capital gains are typically much lower than the ordinary tax rates you'd otherwise pay, which can be as high as 37%.

SEE MORE IRS Releases Income Tax Brackets for 2021 However, which one of those capital gains rates - 0%, 15% or 20% - applies to you depends on your taxable income. The higher your income, the higher the rate.

The taxable income thresholds for the capital gains tax rates are adjusted each year for inflation. The IRS has already released the 2021 thresholds (see table below), so you can start planning for 2021 capital asset sales now.

3M profit beats estimates on healthcare product boost
There has been a recovery from last quarter when the company suffered a plunge in sales, as demand for office supplies declined with more people working from home due to the pandemic. Sales in its healthcare unit, which also makes surgical supplies and dental products, jumped 25.5%, and accounted for more than a quarter of the company's total sales.

What Are the Income Tax Brackets for 2020?
It's never too early to start thinking about your next tax return. For most Americans, that'll be your federal tax return for the 2020 tax year — which, by the way, will be due on April 15, 2021 (or October 15, 2021, if extended). The 2020 tax rates themselves are the same as the rates in effect for the 2019 tax year: 10%, 12%, 22%, 24%, 32%, 35% and 37%. However, as they are every year, the 2020 tax brackets were adjusted to account for inflation. That means you could wind up in a different tax bracket when you file your 2020 return than the bracket you were in before - which also means you'll be paying a different tax rate on some of your income.

SEE MORE Tax Changes and Key Amounts for the 2020 Tax Year The tax bracket ranges also differ depending on your filing status. For example, the 22% tax bracket for the 2020 tax year goes from $40,126 to $85,525 for single taxpayers, but it starts at $53,701 and ends at $85,500 for head-of-household filers.

The difference between bracket ranges sometimes creates a "marriage penalty." This tax-law twist makes certain married couples filing a joint return — typically, where the spouses' incomes are similar — pay more tax than they would if they were single. The penalty is triggered when, for any given rate, the minimum taxable income for the joint filers' tax bracket is less than twice the minimum amount for the single filers' bracket. Before the 2017 tax reform law, this happened in the four highest tax brackets. But now, as you can see in the tables below, only the top tax bracket contains the marriage penalty trap. As a result, only couples with a combined taxable income over $622,050 are at risk when filing thei
