UPDATE: Weekend reads: Ray Dalio on what business and political leaders must do to keep the U.S. from splintering

Also, an interview with Schwab chief investment strategist Liz Ann Sonders. Plus, attractive locations for retirement living.

Ray Dalio is a billionaire fund manager. He's an ardent capitalist but sees an imbalance that threatens the U.S., which he calls a "75-year empire" in decline.

In an interview (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/billionaire-investor-ray-dalio-on-capitalisms-crisis-the-world-is-going-to-change-in-shocking-ways-in-the-next-five-years-2020-09-17) with Jonathan Burton, Dalio lays out what he thinks U.S. business leaders and politicians should be doing to better allocate wealth and what investors should do to protect themselves.

A few big winners and a lot of pain

An index may not reflect what is really going on in the stock market. The S&P 500 Index has returned 5.3% this year, with dividends reinvested, through Sept. 19. But the benchmark index is weighted by market capitalization, with the FAANG stocks, plus Microsoft (MSFT), making up 24% of its total value. Look at how well those tech giants have performed this year:

Company Ticker Total return - 2020

Facebook Inc. Class A US:FB 24%

Amazon.com Inc. US:AMZN 63%

Apple Inc. US:AAPL 51%

Netflix Inc. US:NFLX 45%

Alphabet Inc. Class C US:GOOG 12%

Alphabet Inc. Class A US:GOOGL 11%

Microsoft Corp. US:MSFT 30%

Now consider that among the S&P 500, 55% of stocks are actually down this year, even with dividends reinvested.

This year's tech-dominated stock market action has reflected the obvious need to expand investment in cloud technology and connectivity. But Liz Ann Sonders, the chief investment strategist at Charles Schwab, expects the investment focus to change, as she explained in an interview (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/schwab-strategist-sonders-stock-market-today-is-a-small-handful-of-winners-and-a-heck-of-a-lot-of-pain-2020-09-18) with Howard Gold.

Value among chip company stocks

This may surprise you -- semiconductor stocks as a group trade at a low valuation to earnings estimates (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/semiconductor-stocks-are-hot-and-these-numbers-say-they-have-more-room-to-run-2020-09-15), compared with the S&P 500, despite the industry's rapid growth.

Retiring to a friendly place for cycling ... and excellent beer

Silvia Ascarelli helps a reader who plans to retire on a military pension in five years and move to a place away from heat and humidity, with low or no state income tax, that is safe for cycling and known for craft beer. Here are several possible destinations (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/ill-retire-with-a-military-pension-and-want-to-move-to-a-bicycle-friendly-beer-loving-place-so-where-should-i-go-2020-09-15).

Don't expect a vaccine miracle

It's understandable to be hopeful that one or several Covid-19 vaccines will enable a return to some semblance of normal life over the next several months. But Dr. Paul Offit, a pediatrician at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia who co-invented the rotavirus vaccine, explained why masks will still be needed even after vaccines are deployed (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/dr-offit-prepare-to-wear-masks-and-socially-distance-even-after-getting-covid-19-vaccine-2020-09-17), in an interview with Jaimy Lee.

An overlooked stock sector for income

The Federal Reserve made it clear this week that very low interest rates -- short-term and long-term -- will be with us for years (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/fed-sees-interest-rates-near-zero-until-end-of-2023-sets-new-economic-conditions-to-be-met-before-raising-rates-2020-09-16). So if you are looking to generate income from your nest egg, you will need to look at a variety of options, including the utilities sector, where compelling yields are still available (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/its-time-for-income-seeking-investors-to-take-a-fresh-look-at-these-28-utility-stocks-2020-09-17).
