U.S. retail sales fell for the first time in seven months in September, suggesting that manufacturing-led weakness could be spreading to the broader economy, keeping the door open for the Federal Reserve to cut interest rates again later this month.

Tesla stock set for highest close in more than 2 months
Tesla Inc. stock on Wednesday vied for its highest close since July 24 and an eighth straight session higher, which would be its longest winning streak since January 2013.

The Best American Funds for 401(k) Retirement Savers
American Funds is the third-largest fund family in the country, with $1.6 trillion in mutual fund assets. Many of its mutual funds are among the biggest in the land, too. So it should come as no surprise that fund company's portfolios are popular in 401(k) plans.

In fact, eight actively managed American Funds portfolios and five of the firm's target-date funds rank among the top 100 funds with the most 401(k) assets - a list prepared by financial data company BrightScope.

You don't read much about American Funds on Kiplinger.com or in Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine because until recently the firm's funds were sold only through advisers, and with a hefty sales charge, too. At Kiplinger, we favor funds you can buy for no transaction fee. But American Funds recently launched a no-load F1-share class that do-it-yourself investors can buy through a handful of online brokers, including Fidelity and Schwab. (In your 401(k) plan, of course, you don't pay a sales charge to buy shares in any American Funds portfolio.)

American Funds runs its portfolios in a unique way called the Capital System. Managers are encouraged to invest their own money in the funds they run, and most do. Every fund is run by multiple managers - each gets a slice of the fund's assets and applies his or her own style and investment philosophy to choose stocks or bonds. The thinking is, a multimanager approach can enhance diversification, lower overall volatility and drive returns. But as assets have grown, the impact each manager is able to make appears to have diminished, at least in recent years.

Here is our look at the best American Funds options for your 401(k), as well as its other popular offerings that don't quite hit the mark. We analyzed the eight American Funds portfolios, as well as its target-date series, that rank among the top 100 401(k) funds, rating each Buy, Sell or Hold.

Probability of an October Fed rate cut soars after disappointing retail sales data
Fed funds futures markets on Wednesday indicated a 90.3% probability that the Federal Reserve will cut interest rates for a third consecutive meeting when the central bank's interest-rate setting committee gathers Oct. 30 and 31, up from a 73.8% chance Tuesday, according to CME Group data. The move follows a Commerce Department estimate that U.S. retail sales fell in September for the first time in seven months. The yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury note fell 2.7 basis points to 1.742%, that on the 2-year note fell 3.7 basis points to 1.577%, while the 30-year Treasury Bond yield retreated 0.6 basis point to 2.226%. A monthlong strike at General Motors may have contributed to weaker sales, after it has idled tens of thousands of workers in the Midwest.
