  • Geopolitics and Markets

    25 Jul 2014 | 2:19 pm
    Growing geopolitical risk is on everyone’s mind right now, but in today’s Outside the Box, Michael Cembalest of J.P. Morgan Asset Management leads off with a helpful reminder: the only time since WWII that a violent conflict has had a medium-term negative effect on markets was in 1973, when the Israeli-Arab war led to a Saudi oil embargo against the US and a quadrupling of oil prices. And he backs up that assertion with an interesting table of facts labeled “War zone countries as a percentage of total world… [population, oil production, GDP, etc.].” Having…

    This week’s Outside the Box is from an old friend to regular readers. It’s time for our Quarterly Review & Outlook from Lacy Hunt of Hoisington Investment Management, who leads off this month with a helpful explanation of the relationship between the US GDP growth rate and 30-year treasury yields. That’s an important relationship, because long-term interest rates above nominal GDP growth (as they are now) tend to retard economic activity and vice versa. The author adds that the average four-quarter growth rate of real GDP during the present recovery is 1.8%, well below…

    Having taken Thomas Piketty to the cleaners a few weeks back (see “Gave & Gave … and Hay”), Charles Gave now redresses the balance with regard to the issue of economic inequality in today’s Outside the Box. He makes a forceful case that “poverty matters for capitalists”: Every US recession that I can recall was preceded by a fall in long rates, and I doubt the next will be much different. As such, do not expect the next US downturn to arise from the Federal Reserve pushing rates higher, an overvalued dollar or even mal-investments. Expect it to result…

    Recent data suggests that mergers and acquisitions in the middle-market manufacturing sector are on a roll in 2014 and not seemingly slowing down any time soon. Deloitte’s recently published annual Corporate Development Survey found that 62 per cent of executives from the manufacturing industry intend to increase mergers and acquisitions activity between now and 2014. This is much higher than the overall average of 46 percent across all industry categories who are thinking of increasing M&A. What is the cause of this uptick in activity in manufacturing?

    Analysis shows the cost of acquiring new customers is 5-7 times higher than the cost of retaining established ones. Yet, often times, a customer appreciation expense is one of the smallest line items in the company budget.   If used effectively, however, this investment can have a dramatic impact on a company’s bottom line. Customer appreciation is one of the major factors customers consider when returning to a business. Showing customers how much you appreciate their business can turn them into regular clients. The most obvious way to show this is by verbally telling them, “Thank…

The report contemplates a variety of reasons for this shift, including a reduced role of marriage in a family household and the effects of the latest recession. But what does this mean for the financial future of today’s young mostly-singles? Marriage certainly affects a couple’s finances. In many states in this country, certain effects are unavoidable by law. Nine states have community property laws, and in those states any money…

As Microsoft acquired new companies, at least according to the news reports that tend to take a company’s press release and spokesperson responses at face value, they have the potential to take advantage of consolidated businesses.

    Successful traders share a number of qualities with successful entrepreneurs.  This is not surprising, as trading is all about defining, discovering, and realizing value in a marketplace.  Both successful traders and entrepreneurs have a proactive side to their personalities:  they possess a vision of what they want and work in a directed way to achieve it.  As Lori Greiner astutely observes, it is this drive that leads entrepreneurs to work long hours to avoid working the standard work week.  While broad personality traits have been associated with entrepreneurial…

    One of the more interesting findings in the positive psychology research literature is that happiness is more related to the frequency of positive feelings than their intensity.  Occasional feelings of intense joy are less important to our overall happiness than frequent positive experience.Related to this finding is the important observation that positive and negative emotion--while negatively correlated in the short run--are largely independent of one another over longer time frames.  This is due, in part, to the intensity dimension.  People can have frequent positive…

    My latest for Alpha Baskets is titled Should You Invest in Farm Land. This is a topic we’ve been looking at for years. It seems to be something of a front burner topic after the recent launch of two farm-related REITs. From the post; While I believe small allocations to these niches can be suitable for the right type of investor they are not for everyone and there is also a crucial point of understanding which is that when you buy the stock of a farming company you are buying shares and not the farm land itself.

  • The Incredible, Magical, Shrinking Injunction?

    Mark Weidemaier
    28 Jul 2014 | 3:32 pm
    Judge Griesa has approved Citibank's request to transfer funds it received in payment of both dollar- and peso-denominated, Argentine-law bonds. Order attached. The difficulty, as described in this recent letter from Citibank, is that some of the country's Argentine-law bonds are subject to the injunction, and some are not. The latter group includes bonds issued as part of the country's settlement with Repsol. But it isn't possible to distinguish the payments, because all the bonds have the same ISIN number. Oops. What to do? Judge Griesa "does not wish to upset the…
  • Not Fraudulent, Voidable

    Bob Lawless
    28 Jul 2014 | 9:48 am
    At its annual meeting, the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL) formally adopted the Uniform Voidable Transactions Act (UVTA). Under its provisions, I believe it says any service member in uniform will be able to avoid a transaction . . . . Hold on, let me give it a read. Having now bothered to read it, I see it is actually an amendment to the Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act (UFTA). If you are not familiar with the idea, let's say that you live in Tudor England and are some person named Pierce with a flock of sheep. You also happen to be insolvent. You give…
  • Guess the Date – Holdout Edition

    Stephen Lubben
    28 Jul 2014 | 6:05 am
    The bill admits, that the whole amount divided among all the [creditors], was not enough to satisfy the complainant’s debt. What a singular proposition then to maintain, that although the whole were only entitled, in Law, to a less sum than this individual claims, out of the entire proceeds, yet that this and every other creditor of the same grade, by standing out and standing off, and pursuing his remedy separately, would realize the sum total of his claim! And if such a procedure were permitted, when and where would these successive foreclosures and sales or sequestrations terminate?
  • You Say Poignant, I Say Depressing

    Mark Weidemaier
    25 Jul 2014 | 11:37 am
    As Anna points out, there are indeed moments of poignancy in the pari passu litigation, largely having to do with the fact that, days from a major sovereign default induced in no small part by their rulings, the US courts only now seem to be discovering basic facts about the case. The transcript of the most recent hearing before the district court contains passages that might have been appropriate two years ago, but are depressing to encounter now. For example, the court was initially willing to let Citibank Argentina pass along payments it received on USD-denominated, Argentine-law bonds,…
  • Pari Passu Poignancy

    Anna Gelpern
    24 Jul 2014 | 9:53 pm
    It is too easy to miss poignant moments in the news avalanche of Argentina debt litigation. Here is one from Judge Griesa's monologue at the July 22 hearing: I can't remember whether it was 2010 or 2011, but thereabouts, the attorneys for the plaintiffs requested the Court to recognize a provision which had been in the contractual documents all along but had not been relied on, and that is the pari passu provisions, essentially meaning if the republic paid certain kinds of debts, there had to be a recognition -- and I'm not trying to get into the arithmetic -- there had to…

    28 Jul 2014 | 4:48 pm
    Stocks sold off moderately Monday morning but dip buyers came in yet again - a pattern we have now seen for 2 months - and indexes close near unchanged. The S&P 500 gained 0.03% while the NASDAQ dropped 0.10%. News flow was light; keep in mind we do have the Federal Reserve meeting Tuesday and Wednesday but they have telegraphed their intentions so no fireworks will come of this. We also...

    Indexes gapped down and stayed down all session as weakness in Amazon.com and Visa hurt morale a bit. The S&P 500 fell 0.48% and the NASDAQ 0.50%. Late in the day Goldman Sachs released a note saying they are "neutral" on equities over three months as it sees a slide in bonds leading to a temporary selloff in stocks.

    Thursday was a quiet session with indexes flipping around the unchanged line. The S&P 500 gained 0.05% while the NASDAQ dropped 0.04%. It was another day of very high profile companies reporting. Economic news in the housing market was not very good - new home sales declined 8.1 percent in June, the biggest drop in almost a year.

    Indexes were up most of the session as a surge by Apple (AAPL) helped lift things; this is a massive component of the NASDAQ. The S&P 500 gained 0.18% and the NASDAQ 0.40%. It was a very busy day with a lot of blockbuster companies reporting so we'll focus on that today. Original post: STTG Market Recap July 23, 2014 Read the full article at StockTradingToGo.com

    It has been choppy action of late after the surge we had early in July during the holiday week. Stocks exited that week very overbought short term and since then we had a needed minor pullback followed by some geopolitical issues. All in all things are doing well in the large cap area while small caps have been a bit more troubled. So for the indexes we focus on each day things look ok. ...

Hauling three kids some 3,000 miles in close quarters with a weak air conditioner might make the heartiest parent shudder, but not mine. Parents today prepare for road trips by stocking up on DVDs and iPad games. In the mid-1970′s Mom and Dad installed a CB radio in the Vista Cruiser. THIS one purchase set the stage for an epic road trip! First I have to tell you what a CB radio is and how we used it. CB radio? What’s that? Citizen Band radio (CB radio)…

They gave me a Wall Drug Store feeling. If you don’t know what I mean by that, you’ve never been within 500 miles of South Dakota. Promotions for the tourist trap (I say that with love) are painted on signs, barns, derelict farm equipment, and fence posts every mile or so along The Mount Rushmore State’s Interstate 90. They’re elsewhere, of course, even as far away as Antarctica (9333 miles). I…

It was a gift that folks in their hermetically sealed cars missed altogether. I drank in that lovely scent, which reminded me of the importance of belly breathing. I was emotionally and physically exhausted by the two-month process of moving out of our suburban home of 26 years as we downsized to an urban townhouse. The magnolia and jasmine induced my decompression cycle. Camping in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park Matt fishing…
  • Planning a Family Vacation Road Trip? Here’s My Advice

    Tamela Rich
    28 Jun 2014 | 2:21 pm
    July is prime family vacation and road trip season. I’m a people watcher, and since I am often alone on the road I get plenty of opportunities to observe families on vacation. Eavesdropping on conversations, I notice that the destination and the amount of money parents spend on their vacations has no bearing on whether the kids whine or complain. Flexibility: The key to a great family vacation The happiest families on the road are those who allow flexibility into their schedules.

  • Japan Bucks Trend With Financing Of Foreign Coal Plants

    28 Jul 2014 | 2:57 pm
    As the U.S. and Europe withdraw support for overseas coal projects, Japan is eager to pick up the slack. On July 23, Japanese officials laid out a plan to step up support for coal-fired power plants in developing countries, according to The Wall Street Journal. According to the plan, Japan will offer favorable financing terms for customers overseas to purchase Japanese coal technology. In total, the government hopes to do $4 billion in coal business each year. One example of this policy came on July 17, when state-owned Japan Bank for International…Read more...
  • What A World Powered By The Sun Would Look Like

    28 Jul 2014 | 2:45 pm
    The Sun powers our solar system, so could it power all our Earthly needs, too? And if it someday could, where would all those solar panels go?According to a graduate thesis by Technical University of Braunschweig student Nadine May, the number of solar panels needed to supply the entire world’s energy needs would fill just 25,000 square miles – or an area only slightly larger than the state of West Virginia. That doesn't seem like very much, unless you live in West Virginia. If the amount of solar panels needed were divided evenly in…Read more...

    Ah, myths, urban legends and conspiracy theories -- don’t you just love ‘em? Still, you would think that in this day and age, when information flows more freely than ever before, they would be less prevalent than they were in the pre-Internet days. But unsubstantiated misinformation and baseless speculation are still freely available, maybe more so, and willful ignorance is nearly as common as unavoidable ignorance once was.

Yet this is precisely what we are now trying to do with climate change policy.  The Obama administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, many environmental groups, and the oil and gas industry all tell us that the way to solve the problem created by fossil fuels is with more fossils fuels.  We can do this, they claim, by using more natural gas, which…Read more...

    Market seems to be grinding higher amid a week full of earnings in big names. There is no tell its a bullish bias as long the earnings are bullish. The second we stop this euphoria this market can drop down, because it has been overbought in this region for a longtime. Profit taking may grip the market and than back on up. GOOGL had its earnings last week and this week is filled with big name like CMG, NFLX, AMZN and so many others. We are trading index options like RUT and SPX for the moment and avoiding the earnings risk based trading this year. Earning trades are great if you gamble right…

SPX has been pulling back a little after topping the channel but RUT is already bouncing back from the 50 day line. NDX has barely budged from the rise and break it had and still strong here. The action in CMG is sideways which may lead to higher prices as the short sellers couldn't push this one down below as buyers kept stepping in.

However, we are nearing the upper limit of the channel here and overbought and may see a retreat at some point, but the next few days should bring more bullish upsides to the market. Most jumbo stocks which we often trade are in good shape and forming bases or have run up higher. NFLX is now pulling back a little to give us an entry.

  • Building a small business team is like building a sports team

    Kevin
    23 Jul 2014 | 3:43 pm
    During the NBA and NFL drafts, teams analyze their entire roster, look at rough spots from the previous year and attempt to build a team that can bring home the world championship trophy. The perfect team can bring a stellar record, but that doesn’t always mean stacking your team with superstars. While that can be effective, having role players can make a world’s worth of difference. (If you watched this year’s NBA Finals, you likely saw how San Antonio Spurs toppled the Miami Heat using role players instead of superstars.) The same can be said about small businesses. Too many people…

She joined Clifton Gunderson in 1978, the same year I joined my firm. She was admitted as a partner in 1985 and after years of service in various capacities became CEO in 2009. She was the first female CEO of a Top 25 Accounting Firm.

Since emotions affect the reactions of traders, the reactions of those traders can reveal their emotions; and knowing those emotions can give a trader an edge. Traders who are aware of the predominant emotions in the market can make educated guesses about how the market will perform in the future, albeit not with 100% accuracy, but with enough accuracy to be helpful. Candlesticks can help traders detect emotions. Understanding those emotions, however, can be…

It’s generally a good thing for the general markets when this sector is doing well and we can often expect the markets to continue to rise. Trends don’t turn on a dime and while in the short term they may be a little overbought these trends can go on for far longer then we can imagine.

Technically it has a very clear channel forming and it should have no problem getting back to the upper trendline. Low float of 22 million will surely add to the volatility but I think there’s a much better chance of this going over $37 then revisiting $32. The RSI has been behaving bullishly as it oscillates between 80-40.  20% of the float is short so as this moves…

publicly traded firms continues to shrink, many issuers are seeking ways to lower the costs of shareowner services, especially if their transfer agent contracts are coming up

    The best-laid plans of mine and men often go astray, or so the saying goes. There’s a good reason why we have idioms like this, because they are largely based on truth and experience. Ask anyone who’s tried to save money regularly and they’ll tell you that despite the best intentions in the world, a badly-timed bill, rising living costs and just paying for everyday items can get in the way of saving. For example, according to the MYJAR infographic, the average Brit spends about £554 a year, per person on their holiday. It’s not a huge amount but break it down and you’ll have to be…

As things stand, people of state retirement age who choose to delay drawing their state pension get a higher pension when they do start to draw it. However, the Government is looking at reducing the amount that the state pension rises when deferred. Currently, the state pension increases by 10.4% for each year it is delayed. The Treasury is proposing slashing this to just 5.8% each year.   Financial experts have worked out that if a worker decided…

  • Avoiding the Pitfalls of Sideways Trading

    25 Jul 2014 | 8:11 am
    Trading requires a lot of diligence, especially with the month of July where the market from its opening price on July 1st through today's closing price has only move 16 points on the S&P 500. That's less than 1% of the market's current value.  As a result it takes a lot of time and diligence to consistently profit in such a market. There are a lot of factors that can lead to making costly mistakes as well: from over-trading and lots of commissions to frustrations of seeing winners turn into losers.

    Chris Ciovacco: If you were investing in 1994, you probably recall it was a difficult year. Notice the similarities to 2014 in the text from The Economist below: CAST your minds back to 1994. The Federal Reserve had kept rates at (what seemed then) the low level of 3% for three years in an effort to allow the financial sector industry to recover from the savings & loan crisis, a problem that was the result of reckless expansion and lending (thank goodness they learned the lessons of that disaster). The Fed then started very modestly to tighten monetary policy with a quarter point rate…

    George Leong:  If you think Americans are firmly comfortable in the economy and jobs, think again. Yes, the stock market has returned strong gains and has been an investment opportunity over the past five years (since the end of the Great Recession in 2008), but much of it was artificially driven by the lax monetary policy put forth by the Federal Reserve. Now that the quantitative easing is dissipating and interest rates are set to edge higher sometime in mid-2015, I’m not all that comfortable. The jobs numbers are improving, but they are still well below the 500,000 per month that…

    30 Jun 2014 | 7:24 am
    Since peaking out in mid-March just shy of 1.13, USD/CAD has been making fairly rapid progress to the downside. With the market having now broken 1.07 to the downside, however, it is probably a good point to look for the volatility to ease off and some support to develop. A starting point for thinking that way is the seasonal pattern for the pair.

  • Test Makers Fail Financial Literacy Test

    The Wall Street Ranter
    14 Jul 2014 | 6:31 pm
    So news was recently going around about a Financial Literacy Test made by the OECD. The Wall Street Journal provided 5 sample questions from the test and I must say that the OECD fails it's own question.First of all I'm switching the "zeds" to $ for typing purposes. So Mrs Jones current loan balance is $7400, it has a 15% interest rate with monthly payments of $150. This means that the loan will take 78 payments (months) to payoff and TOTAL INTEREST paid over the life of the loan will be $4,178 (yes below it equals $4,180 due to rounding).However, if she decides to take out a new larger…

    Here in an interestingly look at the Barclay's US Aggregate Bond Index from Lord Abbett  The below Chart shows how the duration of the Index has changed over the last ten years.As you can see, up until late 2010 the duration of the Aggregate Bond Index tended to hover around 4.5 years. That has increased to approximately 5.5 years today. I think it is important that "passive" index investors be aware that they are currently making an "active" decision to increase their interest rate risk.

Why not use the same data as the first graph back to 1993? Also, I don't tend to think any valuation metric is a reliable short-term (1 year) timing indicator. However, Rob Arnott has also been pointing out that longer-term forward returns (10 years) are also looking pretty tempting using a…

    Earlier this month, Jeremy Siegal, a well-known “bull” on CNBC, took to the airwaves to predict the Dow Jones Industrial Average would go beyond 18,000 by the end of this year. Acknowledging overpriced valuations on the key stock indices are being ignored, he argued historical valuations should be taken with a grain of salt and nothing more. (Source: CNBC, July 2, 2014.) Sadly, it’s not only Jeremy Siegal who has this point of view.

The company’s fiscal fourth-quarter numbers beat Wall Street consensus, and its sales from continuing operations grew 11% to $7.4 billion, or 13% on a currency-neutral basis. In this market, double-digit growth is significant no matter if it’s in the top or bottom line.

  • Friendly Cattle on Feed Report. GDP and Jobs report later this week. The Nemenoff Report 7/28/14

    28 Jul 2014 | 8:48 am
    Financials: Sept. Bonds are currently 6 lower at 138’`5, 10 Yr. Notes 4 lower at 125’05 and 5 Yr. Notes 2.5 lower at 119’03. This will be a busy week for release of economic data, the most important of which will GDP on Wed., FOMC on Wed. and the Monthly Jobs Report on Fri. I expect a continuation of “paring” as it concerns continued Quanitative Easing. Somewhere in the language of the release of FOMC could be a time frame for an expected ending to QE which could indicate a slight bump upwards in yield sometime between late 2014 and mid 2015. We remain spread long the 10 YR. Note/…

    COTTON General Comments: Futures closed lower again. Demand remains a problem as China remains mostly out of the market. The lack of Chinese buying reflects in part the moves by the government to sell Cotton into the domestic market and to reduce stocks in warehouses. World supplies remain strong and ideas are that the US can produce a very good crop. Crop prospects remain very good even with the lower crop ratings. Good weather and the increased planted area create ideas of big production. Current conditions support good growth in Texas. Brazil conditions are reported to be good in Bahia…

    This Monday morning we will start off with the Crude Oil market. In the overnight electronic session the September contract is currently trading at 10176 which are 33 points lower at this writing. The trading range has been 10210 to 10139 so far. At this time the market is not overreacting to events in Libya and now we have proof that Russia has directly engaged Ukrainian troops. This is a direct violation of what the Russian government told us of their involvement. If these two hotspots escalate any further and disrupt the flow of oil, things could get ugly.

  • Fed Signals Potential End to QE!

    scotteckstein
    21 Jul 2014 | 11:27 am
    Earlier this month, the Federal Reserve released the minutes from the latest Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting that took place in mid-June. What was most significant was the potential end to the Federal Reserve’s monthly asset purchase program or Quantitative Easing, popularly called QE. Looking back, the Fed has already been reducing QE by $10 billion increments at each meeting since December 2013, to $35 billion a month from a high of $85 billion a month. However, the latest meeting minutes indicated that if the economy continues to generally improve as the FOMC’s members…
  • Can a CEO Opt-out of Earnings Calls?

    21 Oct 2013 | 9:59 am
    In case you missed it, last week Google’s CEO announced that he may not be joining future earnings calls. Some news reports are citing vocal chord troubles, while Page himself suggested it was a need for him to “ruthlessly prioritize.” But how can Larry Page be a CEO if he can’t talk? Do they do all of their strategy meetings via Google Hangout? And if it is a question of priorities, shouldn’t his shareholders be a priority four times a year? Many are citing the precedent of Steve Jobs opting out while battling cancer, which was obviously an extreme example. Others may recall Jeff…

    Top companies explore social media for investor relations, as most still lag behind. Since the SEC approved the use of social media for announcements in compliance with Regulation FD in April 2013, a few U.S. companies have answered the call by integrating social media platforms to help communicate financial information and engage shareholders. This is highlighted by Yahoo and Netflix “breaking the staid tradition of executives huddled around a speakerphone” and utilizing live video conference and tweets for their recent quarterly results and Zillow soliciting questions submitted via…

    The power and influence of social media is undeniable. It has risen to be the No. 1 activity on the Internet (I’ll let you figure out what it overtook…). There are now over 1 billion users on Facebook. If it were a country, it would be the world’s third largest. Every second, two new members join the LinkedIn club. And the fastest growing social network in 2013…Twitter, with the fastest growing age demographic of 55-64 year olds, registering an increase in active users of 79 percent. So considering that, in today’s social-dominated world, CEOs of top corporations must be tapping in…

    As practitioners of crisis communications, we regularly work closely with legal counsel to make sure that the communications strategy is closely aligned with the legal strategy. Our objective is to help protect brands and while the lawyers look toward winning in the court of law, we public relations practitioners aim for success in the court of public opinion. Words matter for each of us in arguing our case and we seek to be in sync in legal filings and corporate messaging. Yet, there are some times when friction can emerge between the road the lawyers are taking and what we believe may be…

The exhibit, Men in Armor, will be on view from August 5th to October 26th in the East Gallery. Organized by the Anne L. Poulet Curatorial Fellow, Jeongho Park, the arrangement will pair El Greco’s celebrated Vincenzo Anastagi, with Pulzone’s rarely seen Jacopo Boncompagni. With the painting’s highly detailed polish, Pulzone’s portrait of Boncompagni, on loan from a private collection, epitomizes the sophisticated style…

    Opinions about the state of U.S. equity market structure and the value of high-frequency trading diverge widely, yet there are areas of broad consensus on some core issues, such as transparency and fee rebates. This was apparent earlier this month at a Senate hearing on how to enhance market structure, where some of the busiest U.S. exchange destinations and one of the largest buy-side funds agreed that rebate fees and payments to brokers for orders should face greater regulatory scrutiny. “It is interesting that the Senate hearing into high-frequency trading should yield a consensus…

    Large cap indexes are not a good representation of the broad market because they don’t take into account the contributions that individual stocks contribute to the index, according to Stephen Hammers, chief investment officer at Compass EMP. “There’s a lot of indexes out there that are either cap-weighted or fundamental weighted, which means they puts a lot of weighting towards a few stocks,” said Hammers. “If you look at the S&P 500 ending 2013, it had $116 billion market cap on average, but only 136 stocks were above $100 billion.

    Retirement has often been viewed as an ending, a time of slowing down and simplifying life after a long working career. This is changing as people live longer and consider other possibilities. In a survey of Americans aged 45 and older, 57% described retirement as a new chapter in life, seeing it as an opportunity to explore new options and pursue their dreams. Many pre-retirees don’t envision a traditional retirement at all, but want to reinvent their careers by entering a new field of work.1

The Standard & Poor’s 500 index posted a gain of 177% for the five-year period.1 The current bull followed on the heels of the Great Recession and the worst stock market decline since the 1929 stock market crash. The most recent bear market began in October 2007; the S&P 500 fell 57% before hitting the bottom on March 9, 2009.2 In typical fashion, investors who sold stocks during the downturn may not have participated fully in some of the subsequent bull market gains.
  • Weighing Price and Earnings

    As with any purchase, it would be wise to learn more about a stock before investing. Because no one has a crystal ball, the price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio can be a helpful tool. Underlying Value On its surface, the P/E ratio is a simple calculation derived by dividing a stock's current price per share by the company's earnings per share over a 12-month period. You might consider it a measure of underlying value that indicates what investors are willing to pay for one dollar of earnings. For example, a P/E of 17 means an investor would pay $17 for every $1 the company earns. By this standard, a…

Since then, they’ve taken a bath. As of close of business on April 11, GM shares were trading at $31.93 – a loss of 21 percent year-to-date – buffeted by the twin gales of falling equity prices across the board and a string of nasty recalls that put a crimp on earnings projections for the quarter and for the year.

    This year marks the first year in which same-sex couples are filing income tax returns in the post-Windsor v. U.S. case era. The Windsor case, of course, was the pivotal legal challenge to the Defense of Marriage Act, in which the Supreme Court of the United States upheld a previous ruling from the U.S. Second Circuit that DOMA was an unconstitutional violation of equal protection rights. Prior to Windsor, the Defense of Marriage Act prohibited federal officials from recognizing same-sex marriages for the purposes of federal business.

    Goodwill Industries announced it is investigating a possible data breach in its thrift stores. The company is working closely with authorities to see if any credit card information was leaked during the potential security issue. Several banking institutions have been able to link cards with high volumes of unauthorized purchases to transactions at Goodwill. With more than 2,900 stores in Goodwill's network, this could mean a large number of credit card accounts have been compromised. Investigators will have to determine if this is a coincidence or an indication of a significant data breach.

    Will Debit Card Rewards Become a Perk of the Past? Banks are still struggling to regain their footing from the financial collapse and resulting Great Recession.

    There has been a huge amount of scrutiny aimed at the payday loan sector in recent months. This is partly due to the rapid rise in popularity of these short term cash advances that have made their way to the UK from the US over the last decade. With the current economic climate, many households have turned to payday loans for help then in time of need, when hit with an unforeseen expense. These households borrow what they need and repay it on their next payday, together with the interest and any charges. Others, however, have spiralled into debt for a number of reasons.

The short answer is that the location of your provider should not be a consideration in your decision of who to work with. Most factoring companies can easily work with anyone as long as they have access to email and phone. Your best bet is to work with someone that is a good fit for your business.

  • Should I Take A Loan From My 401k?

    admin

    As you may already know, the contributions you and your employer made to your 401k account are funds earmarked for your retirement. If you are young, that may seem like light years away. Since it’s just sitting there, anyway, it is a very easy source of funds if you find yourself severely strapped for cash. Another reason why it’s tempting to tap into your retirement savings is because the interest rate levied on this loan is generally lower compared to that of other conventional loans. A lot of individuals are lured into borrowing from their 401k to satisfy a high-interest debt because…

    Moving is a costly and stressful affair. As such you’ll have to do a lot of number crunching and introspecting to determine if moving is really going to result to savings. One of the first things that you need to consider if you are planning a move is if you rent or own the home you are living in now. The issue is much easier settled if you are a renter because there are rarely no costs involved to get out of the lease agreement. If there are, it is much lesser compared to if you are selling your house. As such, the moving costs are much easier recouped especially when you live much closer…

Doing so would also be smart since it will allow you to get out of your car debt sooner and of course, lessen the interest payments you have to pay. Before you start paying off your car loan in earnest, however, make sure that you talk to your lender first to determine if you need to pay prepayment penalties. There are some lenders that levy these charges if you want to pay off the loan earlier than the specified term. In case there are prepayment penalties, you’ll have to crunch the numbers so you can find out if…

    It is possible to pay a mortgage using a credit card but the options are extremely limited. In many cases, mortgage servicing companies don’t allow direct payments of mortgages using credit cards. It may be possible to pay through third party services that enable you to pay car loans, student loans, utilities and mortgages but they usually charge fees on the average of 2.5 percent. If your credit card offers rewards, the fees that you will pay are going to basically render those rewards useless. Another option which may allow you to pay mortgage with your credit card is if it has a bill pay…

    After almost a year of often-public discussions, the CFP Board recently delivered its decision to financial planner Rick Kahler that, because he owns a (commission-based) real estate brokerage firm to which his financial planning clients are sometimes referred, he will no longer be permitted to label himself as "fee-only" and must describe his compensation as "commission and fee" instead, in light of the commission-based related party. In response, Kahler has declared that he will likely drop his CFP certification (after being the first in South Dakota to earn the CFP certification over 30…

    As the 2013 tax preparation season wound to a close in April of this year, many investors discovered for the first time a costly new line item on their tax return: "Other Taxes" on Line 60 of their Form 1040, where they reported the new 3.8% "Medicare surtax" on net investment income that just took effect in the past year. While "only" a 3.8% rate, the new tax is significant for many types of investment income eligible for a preferential rate; after all, adding 3.8% to a 15% long-term capital gains rate is actually a 25.3% relative increase in tax burden!

The New Yorker article "California Screaming" is the East Coast Establishment's way of looking down its nose at San Francisco's newly rich.  That magazine's circulation base is mostly old money trust fund babies who turn into full-time salon intellectuals, plus the…

    If you are running an online store, then like any physical store owner, your biggest challenge is to keep visitors’ interest enough for them to buy an item before leaving your shop. In the case of e-commerce, this problem is even harder to overcome, because customers are generally alone in front of their computers, without any sales person to incite them into buying the selected items. We’ve all left a website with a full cart, after having second thoughts on our decision to buy. In fact, cart abandonment rates have been estimated to be in average 65%. So as a business owner, this…

Also, in 6 Ways To Finance Your Startup, I also introduced crowdfunding, and different sites that can help you raise funds.  Now when these two concepts are combined, you get platforms like Kiva, a non-profit organization that connects people around the world through microlending; and Zafen, a crowd-funded loan source focused on Haitian small growing businesses that do not qualify for…

  • How To Pick Stocks: 5 Essential Tips For A Successful Investment Strategy

    Meinna Gwet
    23 Jun 2014 | 9:00 am
    I have recently started my investment journey, by opening my first online brokerage account and by crafting my investment strategy. I’m personally not a huge fan of mutual funds, because of high management fees and because I want more control on what’s in my portfolio. So, since I’m not into day trading either, I naturally developed a high interest in stock picking. In my particular case, I prefer doing a lot of work to identify the right stocks, buy them, then hold them for a long time, instead of following the stock market on a daily basis. This is because I am more…

Such is the popularity of King Digital Entertainment’s hit game, which propelled them into an IPO in March of 2014. Candy Crush Saga transformed King from a miniscule gaming company, into one with 352 million monthly unique users and 600 million plus in cash over the course of two years.

Rather the correct statement would be that Riskier investments have to offer the prospect of higher returns in order to attract investors‘.
