    Louis Gave is one of my favorite investment and economic thinkers, besides being a good friend and an all-around fun guy. When he and his father Charles and the well-known European journalist Anatole Kaletsky decided to form Gavekal some 15 years ago, Louis moved to Hong Kong, as they felt that Asia and especially China would be a part of the world they would have to understand. Since then Gavekal has expanded its research offices all over the world.

  • How the Rising Dollar Could Trigger the Next Global Financial Crisis

    John Mauldin
    11 Dec 2014 | 3:01 pm
    This week’s Outside the Box continues with a theme that I and my colleague Worth Wray have been hammering on for some time: the very real potential for a rising dollar to trigger the next global financial crisis. We are concerned about the consequences of multi-speed economic growth around the world and the growing divergence between major central banks. In our opinion, if these trends persist, they likely mean (1) a major US dollar rally, (2) a rapid unwind of QE-induced capital flows to emerging markets, (3) a hard slide in fragile emerging-market and commodity-exporter currencies,…

    Russia and its redoubtable president, Vladimir Putin, have been much in the news lately.

For today’s Outside the Box we have two pieces that deliver deeper insights into the situation with Russia and Putin. The first is from my good friend Ian Bremmer, President of the Eurasia Group and author of Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World. You probably caught my mention of…

    Two years ago, my friend Mohamed El-Erian and I were on the stage at my Strategic Investment Conference. Naturally we were discussing currencies in the global economy, and I asked him about currency wars. He smiled and said to me, “John, we don’t talk about currency wars in polite circles. More like currency disagreements” (or some word to that effect). This week I note that he actually uses the words currency war in an essay he wrote for Project Syndicate: Yet the benefits of the dollar’s rally are far from guaranteed, for both economic and financial reasons.

  • News From the Metal Fabrication Industry

    19 Dec 2014 | 10:16 am
    Despite increased demands for steel from end-use industries such as automotive, construction, and energy sectors, steel production has declined globally. Simultaneously, steel prices have remained weak; further declines in prices are expected as demand growth flattens. A positive note from this is the decrease in iron ore prices, which could lower production costs for steel makers. Also, demand for aluminum has increased, showing that the surplus in capacity may end soon. This is partly driven by the increased use of lightweight alloys in automobiles and aircrafts. Strong growth in the United…

    Staples confirmed on Friday that suspicious cyber activity, first spotted in September, was most likely a malware attack that may have breached 1.16 million credit cards. A preliminary investigation found evidence of malware installed in the point-of-sales systems at 115 locations. The malware may have given hackers access to cardholder names, credit card numbers and verification codes. The breaches began in late summer and continued until the retailer detected and removed the malware in mid-September.

The technology, which Uber calls “surge pricing,” is among at least 13 patent applications the company has filed with the U.S. patent office, which typically become public 18 months after filing, Bloomberg reports.

    The hard truth about debt is that there’s no quick fix. Anything that promises you immediate freedom from debt will probably only get you into more debt in the long run. That doesn’t mean that it’s impossible to get rid of your debt and gain financial freedom, though. Follow these tips to save money, pay off debt, and start on your path to living debt-free. 1. Check into your insurance plans to find out if you can lower any of your plans. Look at your cable package – do you need everything you’re paying for? You may be able to lower the package or even get rid of it altogether.

    Many people who have been mis-sold payment protection insurance (PPI) policies are unaware that they can claim back the premiums they have paid. Millions of PPI policies were sold alongside loans, mortgages and credit cards. A High Court ruling means that banks and other lenders who have breached the regulations are obliged to pay back all fees – plus compensation – on such policies. It is now known that billions of pounds have been set aside to cover the costs of this scandal, and with an industry average payout of just under £3000 per policy, it is well worth seeing if you are one…

    Houston has fewer homes underwater, but foreclosure filings are rising, according to two recent reports. The Bayou City has 68,222 homes underwater, meaning these homeowners owe more on their mortgage than their home is worth. About 7.4 percent of all Houston homeowners with a mortgage are underwater, according to the Seattle-based online real estate company (Nasdaq: Z). The negative equity rate in Houston is lower than the national average of 16.9 percent and has been declining since 2011, mirroring…

Some of Charlotte's top-ranking corporate executives seemed to agree that 2015 looks better than recent years. Businesses are growing. Consumers are feeling better about spending.

His brow was furrowed, and he looked worried and perplexed. I wasted no time asking him what in the name of sugarplum fairies was wrong.

    An acquaintance of ours returned from a missionary trip to Tanzania recently. As these cross-cultural encounters go, each side had plenty to share with the other about their lives. Toward the end the trip, she asked one of the locals what stood out from everything the Americans related. It was that there are people on this earth who actually spend money to walk. (He was referring to Americans either buying treadmills or paying gym memberships to walk on them.) They (everyday folk in Tanzania) have no choice but to walk miles every day, and they simply have a hard time imagining walking as a…
  • The sunny side of pessimism

    Richard Barrington
    24 Nov 2014 | 12:00 am
    From the Declaration of Independence to the space program, optimism was traditionally something of a core American value; however, it is one that has taken quite a beating in recent years. Not too long ago, an NBC-Wall Street Journal poll found that 76 percent of Americans lack confidence that their children will have a better life than they do. That is a stunning reversal from the onward-and-upward America in which baby boomers were reared. Then again, the optimism of the baby boom generation atrophied into a dangerous complacence which has been bad for the economy in general and for…

    More than two-thirds (68.1 percent) of the elderly poor are women. An October 2012 study by the American Association of University Women found that over the course of a 35-year career, an American woman with a college degree will make about $1.2 million less than a man with the same education. More than 70 percent of nursing home residents are women, whose average age at admission was 80. In 2006, the average annual cost of a private room in a nursing home was $75,000 and a shared room almost $67,000. It is a well known fact that women live longer than men.

    20 Dec 2014 | 4:11 am
    One of the hallmarks of trading this year has been the underperformance of small caps relative to large caps.  As you can see from the top chart, the Russell 2000 Index (IWM) has pretty well underperformed SPY for most the year.  Recently, however, that relationship appears to have turned around.  At the recent market lows, we did not see relative lows for IWM to SPY and, indeed, IWM is trading very near its highs for the year.  Similarly, microcaps (IWC) are trading at multi-month highs.  This is relevant, because it suggests that the recent market strength has been…

    Central to sound trading is taking trades that offer favorable reward relative to the risk taken.  This assumes, however, that we can accurately estimate both risk and reward--and the likelihood of achieving those.  That may sound easier than it proves to be in practice.We know that volatility in the stock market is intimately connected with the volume of shares traded.  As the VIX has recently climbed from low double digits to over 20, volume in SPY has moved from less than 100 million shares per day in late November to close to 200 million shares in recent sessions. …

    Will we have an appropriations bill before a government shutdown? The fight over the 2015 Appropriations Bill is now focused on one of the non-appropriations measures stuck onto the bill by the House GOP. That provision would repeal section 716 of the Dodd-Frank Act, which prohibits bailouts of swap entities and pushes certain types of particularly risky swaps out of insured depositories. Section 716 might be thought of as the "Banks Aren't Casinos" provision of Dodd-Frank. On the surface, the fight about section 716 looks like a partisan squabble. But the real issue is the…

    Why does the world hate lawyers?  Because of stuff like this.  You can't make this up:  the on-line menu prices for a Chinese restaurant weren't up-to-date, and a customer was overcharged $4. I get being pissed about that.  But what would most people do?  Just lump it, stop patronizing the restaurant, ask the restaurant for a refund, or complain to the credit card issuer.

    Today's video recap can be found here.Indexes followed up 2 very strong days with the type of action bulls will enjoy - a very constructive 3rd day. What we did not want to see today is a big drop and even a flat or small drop would have been more than fine as we try to "digest" the previous 48 hours. So a move to the upside was a big positive.

We entered the day severely oversold on some secondary measures so for short term traders there was an opportunity for a trade IF the market opened down. That happened as some massive interest rate hikes in Russia overnight caused consternation. The trade to buy the weak market was there but you truly had to be quick today. We'll...

I don’t often travel with others, but when I do it’s usually with Jill, whom I frequently mention in my podcasts and blog posts, including this one.

  • This Week In Energy: 2015 Will Not See A Cuba, Mexico Oil Boom

    19 Dec 2014 | 12:28 pm
    Mexico’s sweeping energy reforms and Washington’s normalization of relations with Cuba are both great victories of 2014, but issues of security dull the potential for major projects in Mexico, while downward spiraling oil prices render deep-sea Gulf of Mexico projects too expensive. The news earlier this week that the US would finally normalize diplomatic relations with Cuba following the release of an American government subcontractor and a swap of intelligence assets opens up a plethora of commercial opportunities for American business,…Read more...
  • Basic Arithmetic Letting Oil Companies Down

    19 Dec 2014 | 12:18 pm
    Sesame Street is better at math than the oil companies are right now. Virtually every midsized oil exploration and production company has recently claimed not only to maintain production levels for 2015, but to increase production in the next year, all while slashing capital expenditure budgets to the bone. That math doesn’t compute at all: Where is the Sesame Street “Count” when you need him? It really is as simple as 1, 2, 3….

    19 Dec 2014 | 12:14 pm
    This big collapse in the price of oil that has occurred in the second half of this year is the result of a combination of factors. Dollar strength as other major economies, such as Japan and Europe, face problems has played a part, as has some worry about a slowing of global growth. If the numbers are to be believed, though, the single biggest factor has been the increase in supply as unconventional wells, most notably in the U.S., have come on stream. Understanding that this is principally a supply shock is important for investors as it determines…Read more...

    19 Dec 2014 | 12:00 pm
      Oil prices may be lower than they have been in over a half decade, but that hasn’t slowed the interest in Canada’s oil reserves off of its east coast. A consortium of companies just submitted a bid for the parcels off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada’s largest ever bid for offshore blocks. Led by ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM), the group bid $559 million for the rights to 266,000 hectares in the Flemish Pass, a stretch of water east of St. John’s. ExxonMobil has a 40 percent working interest, with Suncor Energy (NYSE: SU)…Read more...

    Politics, Geopolitics & Conflict The Sudans: Where Oil Fits in A year ago this week, South Sudan became embroiled in a civil war that has so far killed tens of thousands of people and put paid to its embryonic independence from Khartoum. It started when rebel forces targeted South Sudan’s oil fields shortly after fighting broke out in the capital, Juba. At stake is control of some 75% of all of Sudan’s oil production. The situation in South Sudan was already unsustainable due to the civil war (production had already dropped from…Read more...

    The SPX continues to grind higher in extremely overbought conditions. Its nearing the top channel as you can see and break will come for the bears. Right now its riskier to initiate any longs. Those on the sidelines are safe and cash can be a good alternative for a position. Major stocks are taking a tumble GOOGL, NFLX, TSLA, AMZN all are on decline. Main reason is when RUT is doing well these big ones also do well and move higher. Unless you short some of these there is not much there is to them at the moment. Please take a look at the video.

The consolidation in SPX is allowing for a rest and the trend is still unbroken, however there is some sideways action at the moment. The uptrend is still intact. RUT however, is not behaving the same, and has lagged behind a lot, in the last few months. Its in a range bound channel between 1200 to 1100 which is keeping it sideways. This may continue for a while, unless broken in either direction.

    Much of the traditional wisdom that’s bandied about regarding retirement planning assumes that everyone started saving and investing during their early- to mid-twenties once college was over and a quality job had been procured. For many young workers, however, the realities of a challenging employment landscape, student loans, wage stagnation, and more has kept concerns about the inevitable future on the backburner.

Alternatively, since stock prices have tended to rise in the long run, despite temporary declines, buying stocks and holding them for several years – investing – may seem like an almost-guaranteed method of ensuring that the selling will occur at a higher price, without the need to make the predictions involved in short-term trading. In reality, neither trading nor investing is as…

    Erasing Your Debt Can Make You Wealthy If you have the desire to erase debt, you are already on your way to a wealthier lifestyle. The secret to pay off debt is relatively simple. You must make more and ensure that you spend less. Of course, this is much easier said than done. It is easy to accumulate debt, but, it is complicated to rid yourself of that debt. The main reason for this is that when you use credit to make a purchase, you end up making that purchase several times over because of the interest that is charged on the amount that you owe. As a result of this, you find yourself in a…

    Unlike the old adage about leaving things that work alone, some things really are broken and do need fixing. Like poor or bad credit. While there are many reasons to eliminate all your credit card debt, keeping your existing credit good, is important for the times you really need it. Namely, for being able to obtain the best interest rate possible for your large and important purchases: your house, your car, your education. But let’s assume that for any number of reasons, you lost control of your credit card activity, or keeping up on payments. Your current credit score will reflect that…

    If you don’t live under a rock, you are probably aware of the horrific celebrity deaths that hit newsstands with shock – usually there is one or a two a year (sorry for the irreverence). Among those untimely deaths was that of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman. Almost a year ago (February 2014), the surprising announcement was made about the loss of this great Oscar winning actor. Besides the pain that Hoffman’s family must have felt with his loss, more pain ensued as his heirs dealt with his estate being in shambles at the time of his death. Hoffman failed to update his will leaving his…

    “Is it the gilded age again?” Paul Krugman, Professor of Economics at Princeton says it is. Other modern economists are also agreeing to this statement with theories and talks about economic inequality. To back up a bit, “The Gilded Age” is a term coined by Mark Twain in reference to the late 19th century social and economic conditions being masked by a thin ‘gold lining’. Are we in the same state today that we were in over 100 years ago? Debates of inequality have been in discussion for about 20 years now, making an argument for disparity between high and low income earners. It…

When you make a claim, they do everything to slow down the process before they have to pay you for your loss. Is this isolated? This may be a contrarian view, but I do not think so. There are companies and industries that succeed based on your failure. I mentioned one industry which is insurance! They were created based on your mistakes in the case…

    We are conditioned to think of bankruptcy as a “mulligan” when it comes to finances, that it's supposed to be a “free pass” to getting rid of debt and starting all over again. The reality of bankruptcy is that it is difficult and expensive, and not every debt you have can be discharged. “I counsel people to consider bankruptcy as a last resort,” says Leslie Tayne, a financial attorney and debt specialist with Tayne Law Group. In fact, a study from Ohio State University and the University of Maine suggests that it takes 10 to 20 years for most Americans…

Like many bankruptcy tales, this one may be inspired by truth, but actually getting away with it is a myth. “I hear all kinds of stories,” says Todd Esser, a Wisconsin lawyer who focuses on bankruptcy. “And many are more myth than truth.” That's partly because bankruptcy is complicated.

    Earlier this year, during an interview on CNBC, Warren Buffett commented on how he would like his wife and her trustees to invest the cash she would inherit upon his death.

One bequest provides that cash will be delivered to a trustee for my wife’s benefit. . . . My advice to the trustee could not be more simple: Put 10% of the cash in short-term government bonds and 90% in a very low-cost S&P 500 index fund. (I suggest…

The data shows that the UK actually spends much less than many of the other developed countries in Europe and around the world. Whilst state pensions is one of the biggest expenses for the Treasury, the data clearly show that many other countries are paying out much larger percentages of their budget to the over-65s. According to the table, the UK spent 12% of its budget on state pensions, much lower than the average of 18% for all the…

  • An Awesome Week Trading and Trader Testimonial

    19 Dec 2014 | 8:08 am
    I wanted to share another awesome testimonial that I received from a member of the SharePlanner Splash Zone. It was a crazy week in the market but we came out well on top of things, by profiting when the market was tanking and positioning ourselves for gains when the market rose higher from Wednesday onward: Hi Ryan, I just wanted to share my experience as a member over the past few months. While I am a CPA and may consider myself somewhat financial sophisticated, I have not been active in the market for some time. I have been trying to immerse myself in technicals and fundamentals and have…

  • Back in Crazytown

    19 Dec 2014 | 6:27 am
    That was an amazing move yesterday and the double bottom target at 2060 on SPX was hit just before the close. That was rather faster than I had expected, and ES even made a new all time high overnight. ES made it back to over 70 handles over the 45 day pivot (1997.08) again overnight and so was back in Crazytown, where ES has spent much of the last few weeks. I'm expecting that ES may spend much of the rest of December there as well. What are the odds of retracement today? Well I have a rising channel from the 1992 SPX low and as and when that breaks, most likely today, then I'll be looking…
  • Today's Trading Plan: Aiming For New Highs

    19 Dec 2014 | 1:25 am
    Pre-market update: Asian markets traded 2.0% higher. European markets are trading 0.6% lower. US futures are trading 0.1% higher ahead of the market open.  Economic reports due out (all times are eastern): Kansas City Fed Manufacturing Index (11) Technical Outlook (SPX): A second day in a row of immense buying which totals about 89 points in just two days for SPX.  To say the least the Santa Claus rally has begun.  There is a very good chance we see this rally push hard into the end of the year.  SPX reclaimed the 10 and 20-day moving averages yesterday, and has…

    The session on Friday will be very quiet as far as economic announcements are concerned, as the Canadian CPI is really the only thing of significance coming out.

Because of this, we feel that almost all of the substantial action will be found in the FTSE and perhaps in the GBP/USD Forex pair.

    Wall Street in 2014 enjoyed its best year for initial public offerings since 2000, thanks to the record-setting flotation of Chinese Internet giant Alibaba and a barrage of biotech deals. Activity was "uninterrupted" and proved largely immune to forces that at times rattled equity markets, Renaissance Capital said in a report this week. "While various global events, such as Russia's incursion into the Ukraine and conflicts in the Middle East, caused nervousness in global markets, they largely failed to disrupt the US IPO applecart," Renaissance said.

  • Canada ETFs Fizzle Out On 2014′s Massive Oil Plunge

    David Bettencourt
    19 Dec 2014 | 1:32 pm
    Falling crude oil prices have hit the headlines as of late, and some are worried that prices might remain in the doldrums. This liquid commodity is touching a new low almost every day due to poor end-market demand and rising inventory worries across the globe. Weakness was widespread among most global economic superpowers including the Euro zone, China and Japan, putting a lid on crude oil prices. A relatively stronger greenback also played into the broad oil weakness as well. This week, oil hit yet another five-year low in the wake of soaring global supplies as confirmed by the OPEC report…

    David Bettencourt
    19 Dec 2014 | 1:09 pm
    Michael Fabian: During the past several months, many high yielding sectors of the closed-end fund marketplace have underperformed investors’ expectations.  This is especially prescient in light of the broad equity market’s push to new all-time highs following the October volatility. Wide spread selling pressure has been cropping up in nearly all credit heavy and commodity related funds, which begs the question: opportunity or falling knife? I think that everyone is aware of the news feed coming out of the financial complex lately because it has seemingly marked the current correction…
  • Bullish Reversal In Miners, But Metals Remain In Question?

    David Bettencourt
    19 Dec 2014 | 12:44 pm
    Jordan Roy-Byrne: The gold and silver stocks have put in a bullish weekly reversal but Gold and Silver have not confirmed it. The interplay between the metals and the shares has been complicated in recent weeks. Hopefully this missive will make some sense of it as the two groups are sending mixed signals. Gold and Silver are charted below in weekly candle format. Before this week the metals looked bullish. Each tested support and rebounded strongly towards resistance. However, both metals gave back much of the recent gains. Bulls would say they are correcting and still in position to test…
  • Global Economy: Why It’s A Year-End “Mess”

    David Bettencourt
    19 Dec 2014 | 12:22 pm
    George Leong: Heck, it doesn’t look like Santa will be coming to the stock market this year. The blue-chip Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) fell 185 points on Tuesday, prior to rallying to cut its loss—but this was followed by a 170-point intraday decline on Wednesday. Yesterday, the DOW did rally 63 points, but the index was up more than 200 points earlier in the session, so clearly, the apprehension continues to grip the market. The volatility and stock market apprehension is even more amazing given that the DOW came within nine points of testing 18,000 just a few days back. The…
  • Congress Has Guaranteed the Secular Bear Market is Not Over

    Sy Harding: The cyclical bull market that began in 2009 has not ended. Enjoy it while it lasts because the long-term secular bear market that began in 2000 has also not ended. Secular markets are very long-term trends within in which cyclical market moves take place. The last secular bull market ran for 18 years, from 1982 to the peak in 2000. Within it, as is typical, periodic cyclical bear markets took place, including the 1987 crash, the 1991 bear market, and the 1998 mini-crash. In a secular bull market, cyclical bear markets are only temporary. The market recovers and climbs ever…

    Now more than ever, people are inseparable from their electronics. Brimming with notes, calendars, and auto-populated passwords, our devices bring convenience and efficiency to our daily lives – including the time we spend at the office. That’s why many companies have developed BYOD initiatives, allowing employees to bring their own phones, laptops, and tablets to work instead of the usual company-owned devices. Given the popularity of such initiatives, it’s worth taking a closer look at them. BYOD policies aren’t without their advantages. But there are drawbacks, too – and some…

And remember that “working nine-to-five” song? Just try listening to it now without chuckling.   For most professionals, work is no longer seen as a place. Rather, work is what you do – it lurks in your shadow every waking moment, always a click away. Seems troubling, yet increased workplace flexibility is exactly what most employees (of all ages) desire. For employers, the challenge is offering mobile…

Did you know that the busiest expense day of the year happens in December? Better have lots of coffee on hand.   While you scramble to enter expenses and close the year with clean books, you often have to push other, equally important end-of-year activities to the side to accommodate the last-minute rush.

    In this session of The Option Alpha Podcast I’ll answer one of the biggest questions I get when it comes to trading options with probabilities. You see with probability trading there can be this misconception that it’s all a “Zero-Sum” game. But today I’ll show you how you can break this cycle and start making […]

  • Why I Am Buying FireEye Stock

    Mark
    24 Nov 2014 | 2:26 pm
    I recently initiated a position in FireEye Inc (FEYE) last week after investigating the company for a few days. I have had my eyes on technology stocks for awhile as the hot theme in investing is to find disruptive technologies and FireEye fits the bill. This is a long term growth play so I started my position at just $20,000.  Who is FireEye? According to the company’s website, “FireEye provides real-time threat protection to enterprises and governments worldwide against the next generation of cyber attacks. These highly sophisticated cyber attacks easily circumvent traditional…

    16 Oct 2014 | 7:27 pm
    Investors in Netflix (NFLX) saw the stock drop over $100 per share last night in after hours trading. The stock actually pared its losses today as the company was down as much as 25% last night. Shares of Netflix dropped over 20 percent today as the company reported earnings last night. The Good News: Netflix’s revenue rose 27% to $1.41 billion, and EPS doubled to $0.93 per share. The Bad News: Netflix gained 3 million new subscribers when the company was expected to gain 3.4 million by analysts. The company had ambitiously targeted 3.69 million subscribers for Q3.

    6 Oct 2014 | 1:12 pm
    The Dow Jones and S&P 500 are near their all time highs. The market has been on quite a bullish run and there are not a lot of screaming buy opportunities out there. Technology and retail seem a bit long in the tooth to me. There are however some sectors that still have values and I have started taking long term positions in them. Energy, financials, metals, and basic materials are largely undervalued. I have found some intriguing names in these sectors and will be revealing more of them over the next few weeks. On Friday, I picked up shares of the largest steelmaker in the world,…

  • The Stock Market Is Overvalued

    I am as big a stock market bull as anyone. The market has had a great run over the past few years and investors who stayed the course have made a great deal of money. I believe however a pullback is coming. It is simply too hard to find great values in the market now. Many great companies are trading at values (P/E, P/S, BV) that are simply too high based on their financials. (I love Amazon but a 1400 P/E ratio is outrageous for almost any company. I have noticed that a number of my favorite stocks are not quite the bargains that they used to be. I loved Bank of America in the $5 to $ 9…

    Financial problems are some of the most stressful issues people face. At one point or another, most of us deal with money issues. In fact, one recent survey found that 61% of Canadians admitted worrying about their finances. Part of this stress comes from the fact that financial problems often snowball into more serious problems, from not being able to pay the bills to going deep into debt.

    David L. Smith

    As the costs of higher education have skyrocketed over the last few decades, more and more students have gone deeper into debt to finance their educations.  In Canada, the amount of government assistance for college educations has declined, forcing students to borrow even more. Typically, students borrow from multiple sources and consequently end up making monthly loan payments to several different lenders.  If you are having a hard time meeting your monthly bills you can reduce your total outlay by consolidating all your student loan consolidation into a single loan with a…

    We’re only into the second month of the U.S. government’s current fiscal year and we’ve already racked up a budget of $179 billion. (Source: U.S. Bureau of Fiscal Service, December 10, 2014.) When the government incurs a budget deficit, it has to borrow money to pay for its expenses. Over the past few years, due to increased spending, the U.S. national debt has skyrocketed. In fact, our national debt has doubled since September of 2007. (Source: Treasury Direct, last accessed December 12, 2014.) U.S. Congress has just passed a $1.1-trillion spending bill.

    George Leong, B.Comm.
    19 Dec 2014 | 7:14 am
    Russian President Vladimir Putin is holding the world in what I describe as an economic hostage situation. From the annexation of Crimea from Ukraine and his continued support of rebel separatists in that region to his defiance of political rights and a thumbs-down approach to the United States and Europe, Putin is creating a political and financial crisis that is deepening. There is no evidence Putin is softening his aggressive and chaotic stance despite what will likely be the near collapse of the Russian economy going forward. And with the collapse of oil prices, Russia has dug its trench…

Amidst all the turmoil and shocks that can affect the broader market, a good, underlying business that has the liquidity will always get recognized by the investing marketplace. And one growing company that’s a good example of a more confident consumer is ULTA Salon, Cosmetics & Fragrance, Inc. (ULTA), which is a good sign for the upcoming fourth-quarter earnings season.

  • Currency Fluctuations and Troubled Global Economy to Drive Gold Higher

    Moe Zulfiqar BAS
    17 Dec 2014 | 11:25 pm
    There are too many analysts who are concerned about deflation, a period during which the price of general goods declines. Because of this, analysts are not too keen on gold. They say the yellow metal is only good for one’s portfolio when there’s inflation. When prices are declining, it’s not really worth anything. I beg to differ, though. While I’m not denying there are deflationary pressures building up, this negative take on gold may just be proven wrong. Certainly time will tell more, but I say this because of two main reasons: Volatility in the currency market A global economic…

    My Five Stock Market Predictions for 2015 Catalysts for Growth in Place for Solid 2015 Admittedly, stock market forecasts can mostly be flimsy attempts to predict what irrational investors do in uncertain times. That doesn’t prevent most pundits from being overly optimistic. At the end of 2013, I predicted that the U.S. stock markets would continue their bullish ways in 2014. This wasn’t a huge leap when you consider the Federal Reserve hinted it would keep interest rates—the fuel that has been propelling the stock markets steadily higher—near record-lows. Even though the U.S. entered…

I'm fully in favor of ending the Cuban Embargo. Clearly if it ever was effective, it's become counter-effective now. While the US can't yet be accused of having a murderous regime like the Castros, it has lost much of its moral high ground with its non-stop drift towards collectivism. Who are we trying to kid?

    The current financial climate is volatile. Banks are offering low interest rates, and many jewellers are vying for your gold, silver, and diamond jewelery to make a profit from the mounting price of gold. Gold is now selling at an excellent price, but the future price of gold is set to rise further. Investing in gold, rather than an Individual Savings Account, is an attractive option, as you stand to make a profit in the near future. There is always the potential to invest in the stock market, but this market is also volatile and confusing, if you do not understand the numbers, and use of a…

    Hedge funds have a certain cache as investment vehicles for institutions and high net worth individual investors. But the lines of investment strategy have blurred, some hedge funds are looking to tap into increased demand from retail investors. The most dramatic way to do that is via converting to a mutual fund. It’s a rare occurrence, but underlying conditions lend support to the premise that there may be more in the next year or two. Such a conversion has worked well for the $480 million Catalyst Hedged Futures Strategy Fund, which became a mutual fund in September 2013. “There's…

    Guarding Against Fraud In a survey of American adults aged 40 and older, 84% revealed that they had been solicited to participate in a potentially fraudulent offer, and 11% had lost money after engaging in such an offer.1 The root of this problem — besides the endless efforts of criminals — seems to be naiveté and unwarranted trust on the part of those who are deceived. A large percentage of respondents were unable to spot fraudulent sales pitches and found the unrealistic promises appealing (see chart). Although people of any age can be victims of fraud, criminals are more likely to…

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.

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.

The U.S. Department of Labor found that 57.2% of American women of working age participate in the labor force—though workforce participation in general is trending downward. More women are reaching leadership positions than ever before. Nearly two of every five managers are women—double the number 40 years ago, U.S. Census Bureau data shows.

    The earnings of individual day traders are not usually made public.  There is good reason for this, as day trading for oneself does not require any type of public disclosure of earnings.  There is not any incentive for most profitable traders to publish their earnings, and if they do not want anyone else to know how they are making money they do not want to attract unneeded attention to themselves. Usually when an individual trader makes their earnings public, they do so when they are selling a trading system, educational material, or school.  Anyone considering paying for a trading…

Even though the issue is not widespread amongst brokerages, it doesn’t take many bad apples to give an entire industry a bad name.  Look at the US banking industry.  This is one of the greatest success stories in the history of worldwide enterprises, one of the most regulated industries…

If you buy 20 gallons per week, and the current price is $2.65, that works out to $53 spent on gas. Back when prices were $3.50, that would have cost you $70. That’s a savings of $17! …The idea behind charging yourself more is that you take the $17 and apply it to something that won’t hurt you once that money returns to paying for gas once the price goes back up.”

  • What Is The Difference Between Realized And Unrealized Gains?

    admin
    19 Dec 2014 | 10:01 am
    When it comes to paying taxes, there are three basic types that most people are familiar with – income tax, capital gains tax and sales tax. The first and last of these are relatively straightforward – you pay taxes based on what you earn in wages, and may have to pay sales tax when you buy certain types of goods and services. However, capital gains tax is a little more complicated – whether taxes are due and the amount depends on whether you have realized gains – and how quickly. Realize gains Consider a simple scenario. You buy 100 shares in a company at $10, for a total amount of…

  • Tax Extenders Reinstated Temporarily, But ABLE Act Of 2014 Will Permanently Change 529 Plan Landscape For Special Needs Beneficiaries

    Michael Kitces
    17 Dec 2014 | 4:01 am
    Late last night, the Senate passed H.R. 5771, known as the Tax Increase Prevention Act of 2014 or more simply as the “Tax Extenders” legislation. Having already passed the House of Representatives two weeks ago, the legislation will soon go before President Obama and should be signed into law within the next few days. In its final form, the legislation “patches” the tax extenders for one year, retroactively reinstating a wide range of provisions that technically lapsed at the end of 2013, to now be available for the current 2014 tax year. This includes the popular rule allowed those…
  • How Technology Is Turning The Typical Advisor AUM Fee Schedule Upside Down

    Michael Kitces

    The “traditional” AUM fee schedule for an advisory firm has graduated breakpoint as asset levels rise, a tacit acknowledgement that it doesn’t really take twice the work to service a client with twice the assets, and that investment management (and/or with broader financial planning and wealth management services) is fundamentally an expensive service that gets cheaper with “volume” discounts as clients invest more. By contrast, today’s “robo-advisor” platforms simply charge a flat low AUM fee. While robo-advisors provide only a limited scope of services for that price point…

  • Understanding The New Once-Per-Year 60-Day Rollover Rules For IRAs And The Exclusion For Trustee-To-Trustee Transfers

    Michael Kitces
    10 Dec 2014 | 4:01 am
    The rule allowing IRA distributions to be rolled over within 60 days to avoid taxation has been around as long as IRAs themselves have existed, whether used simply to facilitate the transfer of an account, to fix a distribution mistake, or for those who want to use their IRA as a form of “temporary loan” to be repaid in a timely manner. However, to prevent abuse, Congress did enact a rule that limits 60-day rollovers to only being done once every 12 months, which the IRS has historically applied on an IRA-by-IRA basis. In the recent case of Bobrow v. Commissioner, though, the Tax Court…

Then a few seconds later the dog barks and you need to take him out – then the thought is lost? Do you revisit it? Do you just move on?

Such is the popularity of King Digital Entertainment’s hit game, which propelled them into an IPO in March of 2014.

  • Lower Oil Prices: The Inflection Point?

    Ketan Gujarathi
    31 Oct 2014 | 4:08 am
    As you might be observing, oil prices have fallen over the past three months. Recently Goldman Sachs has slashed its 2015 Brent oil price forecasts to $85 per barrel for March 2015. Talking about the Indian Subcontinent, the prime beneficiary to this event is the Government of India which can meet its fiscal deficit targets comfortably. Since diesel subsidies form a major portion of the government’s annual budget, reduction in oil prices will cut down expenditures. Taking advantage of lower oil prices, the Government has proactively deregulated diesel prices. Although this decision was long…

Do you hope to make a windfall on the hot new stock you bought? And yet, things don’t go as you want. Trust me; this can be simply termed as human misjudgement of the underlying value. What is a stock? It’s a small piece of business. What does that mean? Simply, that you own the earnings and the cash flows that the business generates from time to time.

    18 Dec 2014 | 12:57 pm
    Oil and Cuba The announcement yesterday regarding an opening of relationships between the US and Cuba was a specific surprise, but a logical outcome one might have drawn from a secondary effect of lower oil prices. It is not clear that this has any significant near term  broad investment implications. While the talks about a different relationship have been going on for some time, the urgency of reaching closure on the part of Cuba may have been accelerated by what has happened to oil prices and the problematic issues of Cuba’s relationship with Venezuela in addition to the start of…

And, in fact is very different from the last 35 years of generally declining interest rates. That has affected all asset classes in the US and globally. I have used “Past Performance is Not Indicative of Future Results” in every forum I can from the visual media, to webinars, and print media.  Most recently I wrote a piece specifically related to Advisors and Hedge Fund managers with the same headline. It has a few nuances not in our earlier blog on the topic.

    OPEC has an important meeting on November 27th.  The market seems to be anticipating that, at “worst”, there will be a floor put under Brent around the current levels or, at “best”, prices will start trending up toward what the oil analysts view as the “natural” long run price of $95-$100 per barrel. All seem to believe that this is solely in the hands of Saudi Arabia. It very well may be. In my view, whatever comes out of the meeting will be temporary and prices are becoming more inclined to seek a “natural” price level determined by supply and demand for energy…

Many economists strongly believe that this this perilous move is just what could create a domino effect on currency wars.

Demand must go up or supply down. But the supply side in oil has turned into a great big game of chicken.
