In Today's News

CDC Says Fully Vaccinated People Can Safely Travel

The CDC announced Friday that fully vaccinated individuals can safely travel inside the U.S. and internationally, ABC News reports, though they should still wear a mask when traveling on public transportation, including airplanes.

The Millionacres takeaway: This feels like one of those milestones in economic and social recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and is very good news to, say, the hard-hit hospitality industry and its investors. There may well be more of the latter now. You can also read our Maurie Backman's take on this development.

The Millionacres takeaway: An economy on the rise presents opportunities for investors, too, who can spot promising places to put their money, either in equities or real estate of all kinds.

The Millionacres takeaway: The warning comes from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), which already is taking a much more aggressive stance under the Biden administration. The "tidal wave" would be from the 2 million borrowers who may not be able to make it after forbearance agreements expire in September. How much this will roil a very hot housing market remains very much to be seen.
