    It is hard to believe that I started blogging ten years ago today. I remember going to lunch with a group of men from my church. After lunch, I came home and set up AllThingsFinancial on the blogger platform. Why did I start blogging? I had read an article in the Wall Street Journal about a guy who set up a private blog for his extended family so that they could keep up with all the happenings of his kids. I got to thinking that it might be cool to use the same platform to talk about personal finance. When I started blogging, there were literally only a handful of personal finance blogs. Mine…

    A note has been circulating among economists, calling into question the wisdom of another group of economists who wrote an open letter to the Federal Reserve a few years ago suggesting that one of the risks of their quantitative easing program was increased inflation. Since we have not seen CPI inflation, this latter group is calling upon the former to admit they were wrong, that quantitative easing does not in fact cause inflation. To no one’s surprise, Paul Krugman has written rather nastily and arrogantly about the lack of CPI inflation. Cliff Asness has responded with a thoughtful…

Or, to put it in macroeconomic terms, “Why is global growth so disappointing?” In the aftermath of the Great Recession, fearing a deflationary equilibrium (which, as Ben notes, is macroeconomic-speak for falling into a well, breaking your leg, at night, alone), the Fed bought trillions of dollars in assets … and saved the world.

    "We didn't need dialogue. We had faces!" So spoke Norma Desmond, in one of the most famous movies about movie stars, Sunset Boulevard. Sixty-four years later, the pretense at the root of Norma's pronouncement remains alive and well. At its simplest, it's a cynical presumption that Hollywood films today are inferior to some glorified era of the past. Pick one -- the 1930s or 1970s, or any before, between, or after, and someone somewhere has insisted it represented an era when art mattered more than profit, when films were better, when films were less about glitz and more about original ideas.

    Many people have talked about many types of income oriented funds and in many cases, they do not have a bright future ahead, there are some income based mutual funds that are even better than lower risk equity funds. Though some people have written about the risks in income investments like bonds and other high yield investments, it definitely makes sense if you want to own these high income funds. There are many people who have no choice but to own high income funds, yielding high interest rate, and threatening the recent, strong performance, that a lot of these funds enjoyed. Not all the…

    Naturally, if you are shopping for a home loan, you will want to find a good mortgage broker, but there are a variety of services that mortgage brokers in Saskatoon can provide you. Consolidate your debts  One overlooked service is debt consolidation. Loans are available to pay off all of your debts, leaving you with a single payment each month.

    With the advent of email, there does not seem to be many offerings that come in the mail these days. However, wouldn’t it be a treat if a credit offer for a new car was placed in one’s mailbox? That mailing could be a result of trigger mailing. Trigger mailing is when targeted individuals are provided mail that offers lines of credit or financial packages to them. The person is targeted based on their circumstance instead of just being a random consumer. The “trigger” is the life event or behavior that the marketer determines can result in future transactions.

    A few comments on QE:• The FOMC is expected to announce the end of QE3 on Wednesday October 29th, following the FOMC meeting next week.• Most research shows that the primary impact of QE on interest rates is from the size of the Fed balance sheet ("stock") as opposed to the impact on supply and demand ("flow"). This means that interest rates will not spike when QE ends (something I've noted at the conclusion of previous QE purchases).• The positive impact of QE on the economy was probably modest and was the result of lower interest rates. QE probably lowered interest rates 50 bps (maybe…

    As of today, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has erased all of its gains this year. We’re not quite in “market correction” territory, though. The S&P 500 is still up year-to-date, but it isn’t presenting as fantastic a return as was evident earlier in the year. We could be getting to the point where the market finds itself in the midst of a market correction. I wouldn’t pretend to be able to predict the daily, weekly, monthly, or annual swings of the stock market, but there’s no reason to rule a correction out as a possibility. Investing professionals…

We think someone who is a great community leader or someone who is a great business leader will make a great President of the United States. We see the similarities in roles and responsibilities and believe that intelligence and talent in one area leads to success in another. The same bias happens in ourselves.

But determining the value of your house, especially if it’s the house you live in and not something you track as an investment, can be tricky. It’s easy to determine the value of your mortgage to include that in your net worth calculation. Just look at the latest statement from the lender. The statement will highlight your remaining balance, and it’s a number you can’t escape if you do in fact, as you should, look at your statement every month. The house can be…

    Statistically, 80 to 90 percent of you live outside of California. When you read reports of the drought in California, then, your reaction may be something like, “Bummer for those dudes. Patti, please pass the peas.” You might want to reconsider, though, because chances are this drought could affect you more than you think. Saying the drought in California is severe is a bit like saying the Queen Mary is a nice little boat. At least one Bay Area scientist says that, based on historic tree ring data, the 2013-2014 rainfall season is on pace to be the driest since 1580 (not a typo).

    A while back my daughter was involved in a single-car accident.  She acknowledged that it was the result of careless driving.  The repair estimate was a few thousand dollars.  My immediate reaction on hearing the news was relief that she was not injured.  Yes, we spoke about driving carefully and learning from the incident, but I was not stressed or angry.  I was relieved:  grateful, because I knew the outcome could have been much worse.It turns out that gratitude is an underappreciated component of emotional well-being.  Robert Emmons, Ph.D. and his…
  • A Look at the Recent Buying Surge

    22 Oct 2014 | 2:14 am
    The recent post noted the drying up of downside breadth in the stock market, even as we were posting fresh price lows.  I said at that time that I would be surprised if the bottoming process were over, but that I'd be on the lookout for continued signs of strengthening breadth.  Well, I was surprised, and we certainly have had the strengthening breadth!The charts above document the recent surge in buying interest.  The Buying Power measure, which is derived from a measure of the number of upticks among NYSE shares, has hit its highest level since I began collecting those data…
  • How Moods and Motivations Impact Trading Performance

    21 Oct 2014 | 1:25 am
    A very interesting summary of research on mood and creativity finds that people are most creative when they are in particular states.  First, when mood is positive, people solve problems more easily and are more likely to think broadly and perceive fresh alternatives.  We are most cognitively flexible when we experience positive vs. negative moods.Second, when people are moderately energized, they are most likely to engage in complex and creative thinking.  When at low levels of arousal, we don't fully engage the world cognitively; high levels of arousal interfere with…
  • The Real Source of Trading Success

    20 Oct 2014 | 3:23 am
    Thought you might enjoy this graphic I picked up from the web.  Admittedly, it's a bit extreme, but it captures something we all see in the trading world:  the allure of getting rich quick and the willingness of some to exploit that allure.  Nowhere is that more prevalent than in the world of day trading.We know from research that persistent success at day trading does exist, and we also know that it is rare.  In a sense, that should not surprise us:  by definition, elite talent is rare.  What makes trading difficult is that, in many fields, we can make a living…

  • What ‘Yukon Men’ Teaches Us About Retirement Planning

    Roger Nusbaum
    24 Oct 2014 | 7:39 am
    For many years we have been looking at the extent to which more and more people will need to fill retirement income gaps in increasingly innovative ways. I’ve shared all sorts of examples of this because I think it can be helpful and because it is fun to learn about the way in which other people figure out their own solution. So one of the dozens of shows about Alaska is about this very subject although none of the people consider themselves to be retired, obviously from the title you know I am talking about Yukon Men. From the post; The concepts of independence, resourcefulness and…
  • Wrong, Too Early, Does It Matter?

    Roger Nusbaum
    23 Oct 2014 | 8:03 am
    My latest post at Alpha Baskets looks at a bit of a hatchet job on economists who warned of dire consequences from QE and how they appear to have been wrong. Would they say they are just early? Some would, and have said that. The better question is why were they “wrong” or what if they were just early? Technically speaking that is possible. If that is possible then it is something to keep in mind for the future. From the post; Headline inflation certainly has not been problematic, if anything it is arguably too low and the US dollar has gotten stronger as QE has gone on. Actually…

Bloomberg cited research that there could be as many as two dozen cases in the US by November, so that is 24 cases out of 310 million people. How many people will die today driving to work?

S&P cut France to AA and Finland, which uses the euro as its currency was downgraded to AA+ by S&P. The US of course long ago lost its AAA rating but at AA+ it is higher than that of France yet the US yields 105 basis points more. The recent trend of dollar strength reversed last week with the greenback weak against the yen, euro and British pound perhaps caused by Fed comments as well as the drop in yields.

  • Credit Risk Retention Rules and QRM

    Adam Levitin
    22 Oct 2014 | 6:43 pm
    The long awaited credit risk retention rules for securitization are out. The big question--whether the qualified residential mortgage or QRM exemption would be narrower than the CFPB's qualified mortgage or QM safe harbor to the Ability to Repay requirement for mortgages is no. QRM=QM. The short version is that the rule doesn't require meaningful credit risk retention where it counts, and imposes significant market-shaping safe-harbor requirements where skin in the game isn't so important. The basic rule is that 5% credit risk must be retained, unhedged, by the securitization…

    Yves Smith has had some great coverage of the AIG bailout trail over on Naked Capitalism.  While the litigation, as Yves has characterized it, is a bit like a brawl between the ugly stepsisters, it's telling us all kinds of stuff we didn't know (or at least couldn't document) about the 2008-09 bailouts.    Today's coverage is a must-read piece by Matt Stoller about the civil service regulatory capture at the Fed, as personified by its general counsel.  The AIG trial has highlighted some of the worldview problems at the Fed. It has also included some jaw-dropping…
  • Is a 36% Cap Radical?

    Nathalie Martin
    19 Oct 2014 | 2:03 pm
    I was pleased to see today’s New York Times editorial entitled “A Rate Cap for All Consumer Loans.”  It created a very public description of an industry indiscretion involving loaning money to the military at over 36%. Those loans are illegal because a federal law makes it so, a law that passed with broad and deep bipartisan support because trapping military personnel in high-cost loans interferes with military readiness and thus threatens national security. This editorial, not in some fringe publication, but rather the New York Times, argues that we all deserve the same protections…
  • Unseal the Doomsday Book!

    When I first heard about the NY Fed's Doomsday book, my initial thought was, "Wow, they've got a comprehensive survey of land titles, so MERS really isn't an issue!" Then I realized it was a Doomsday book, not a Domesday book. Apparently the Doomsday book is some sort of "in case of emergency" do-it-yourself bailouts manual that outlines the steps the NY Fed believes it can legally take to stave off economic Armageddon.  I'm rather puzzled by the NY Fed's claim that it should be kept under seal.  I guess we'll find out more of the Fed's…
  • Bankruptcy Filings Are Low, But Not Everywhere

    Bob Lawless
    10 Oct 2014 | 1:35 pm
    Bankruptcy filings have dipped to their lowest rate since 1990, as previously blogged (ignoring anomalous statistical gyrations around the 2005 changes to the bankruptcy law). Over the past twelve months the bankruptcy filing rate per 1,000 persons has been 2.95, which is the first time it has been below 3.0 in almost 25 years. But, the filing rate is not that low everywhere. Before discussing how the filing rates are different across the country, the usual question I get is why the bankruptcy filing rate has declined so much. The answer to that question is not this post. Rather, see many…

    ndexes gapped up at the open and stayed strong all day as corporate earnings reports generally pleased investors; some more Ebola news late in the day took indexes a bit off their highs. The S&P 500 jumped 1.23% and the NASDAQ 1.60%. There was decent economic news out of Europe which also helped the mood.

    Indexes opened up Wednesday but sold off in the afternoon.

This three day move is very similar to most rallies we have seen since 2009 in that we call it a "V shaped" move.

They have been trained on this since 2008 so it is no surprise that any drop in the stock market - even 6-8% - brings calls of rescue from central bankers. The S&P 500 gained 1.29% and the...

    This past Saturday I was privileged to keynote the North Carolina Occupational Therapy Association‘s Fall Conference. They asked me to address the question of self-care, since occupational therapists, like many people in the “helping professions,” very often find themselves emotionally fatigued by the work they also find to be satisfying. Far too many leave themselves no energy for themselves and their families. Imagine yourself in their shoes: helping patients relearn how to do things like dress themselves after a stroke, or feed themselves after a car accident that…

I agreed to check it out, surprised by how much haunted houses have changed since I went through one (ahem) 30+ years ago. The genesis of Creekside Manor When John and Judy Durham bought a house beside their 26-acre campground in Williamsport, Maryland, they never imagined that ghosts were already in residence. They intended to renovate and live in it, but during the renovations, they…

    Everyone knows someone with cancer or another life-threatening illness, but few of us know how to talk about it.  Researching my book, Live Full Throttle: Life Lessons From Friends Who Faced Cancer, I interviewed more than 100 people who have faced one of life’s ultimate sinkholes. They told me stories about everything—from how the disease altered the trajectory of their lives to how a cancer diagnosis changes the simple act of human conversation. Here is what I learned: while we all know someone with cancer or another life-threatening illness, few of us know how to talk about it.

  • Falling Coal Prices Wreaking Havoc With Corporate Balance Sheets

    23 Oct 2014 | 4:23 pm
    The slide in oil prices has raised speculation that oil companies in the U.S. could be forced to cut back on production, but a market slump in another commodity is also putting pressure on producers. Coal markets are currently experiencing a supply glut that is showing no signs of recovery. Mining companies drew up plans for billion-dollar projects in the mid-2000s, when commodity prices were on the upswing. With many of those projects now coming online, coal production is rising.BHP Billiton, an Australian mining giant, just opened a $3.4 billion…Read more...
  • Russian Credit Rating Slashed, Economic Future Remains Dim

    23 Oct 2014 | 4:05 pm
    The struggling Russian economy was short on good news last week as Moody’s Investors Service slashed the country’s credit rating to its second lowest level, Baa2, citing the crisis in Ukraine and Western sanctions. The move follows similar ratings downgrades by Fitch Ratings Ltd and Standard & Poor’s and reaffirms Russia’s meager medium-term growth prospects. In the more immediate future, Russian equity markets remain a risky play. Long term, the picture is less clear and Russia’s vitally important energy industry…Read more...
  • 8 Reasons For Our Oil Price Predicament

    23 Oct 2014 | 3:59 pm
    A person might think that oil prices would be fairly stable. Prices would set themselves at a level that would be high enough for the majority of producers, so that in total producers would provide enough–but not too much–oil for the world economy. The prices would be fairly affordable for consumers. And economies around the world would grow robustly with these oil supplies, plus other energy supplies. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to work that way recently. Let me explain at least a few of the issues involved.1. Oil prices are…Read more...

    The bulls have managed to return to Wall Street with full force, as evidenced by the steep rebound that matched the equally steep sell-off since the lows seen on October 15th. Corporate earnings season is still well underway, and for the time being, according to data compiled by FactSet, it appears that the majority of companies are reporting better-than-expected sales numbers.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise, because after all, investors have embraced this product wrapper for its unparalleled ease-of-use and cost-efficiency, with many of these funds earning themselves the reputation as “core holdings” in countless portfolios. On the other end of the spectrum, actively-managed ETFs haven’t exactly been in the spotlight as many criticize their above-average expense…

    In my last post, I talked about how some investors use fixed income exchange traded funds (ETFs) as an investment bridge – a place to put money when moving between managers or making other portfolio changes. Two of the main reasons we see ETFs used in this way are index tracking and liquidity. But there’s another big factor, one that’s especially relevant this time of year: taxes. I talked to one of our experts, BlackRock Managing Director Rob Nestor*, about why taxes are a major consideration when making a move.

It has gradually clawed its way back and officials believe they have it under control. Ebola will get worse before it gets better and we can expect shocks like this.

The S&P futures were up 15 points a few hours before the open and now they are only up 8 points. Some of the earnings reactions this morning (Coke, McDonald's and Verizon) were negative.

    The Quantitative Easing initiatives have been declared as stimulus and successful in sustaining the US financial system.

    Corporate officers can motivate changes in board thinking by reminding directors of key risks that they need to be prepared to confront Consider the myriad of instances over the past few years in which board directors have appeared woefully unresponsive or ill-equipped to address the issues directly impacting their company’s very survival: when crises crept up on boards out of nowhere; when criminal behavior by employees seemed rife; when directors came under personal attack, faced shareholder revolts, lost their seats, or were personally sued and wound up paying through the nose.

    Just What Does the Bible Say About Money? People have differing opinions about what the Bible says about money. Some say it says money is evil and others claim it says God wants His followers to be wealthy. Neither is quite true. Often, people have these opinions based in misquoted or misinterpreted verses. This results in people thinking of the Bible and money being like oil and water and do not mix. The Bible has a lot to say about money, both good and bad. In 1 Timothy 6:10, it says “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered…

The reason: Traders stood transfixed as a heated argument was taking place on live TV, with the topic revolving around what Brad Katsuyama, former head trader in New York for the Royal Bank of Canada, has declared: ?The stock market is rigged? http://nation.foxnews.com/2014/04/02/heated-argument-over-whether-market-rigged-nearly-brings-wall-street-screeching-halt.

  • Survey Shows Savers Estimate They Will Need £23,000 a Year in Retirement

    22 Oct 2014 | 5:16 am
    According to a recent survey by a finance technology company, True Potential, pension savers feel they will need a retirement income of more than £23,000 to live a comfortable life. However, this is much lower than the average pension will be paying out in retirement.    True Potential surveyed more than 8,000 people and found that people estimated that they could live well on a retirement income of £23,457 a year, but the average private or workplace pension will only be paying out £6,011 a year leaving a massive gap between expectation and reality. Even including the state pension into…
  • Over-40s Expect to Still Be Paying Their Mortgage Off in Retirement

    According to a recent survey by Partnership, almost two-thirds of people over the age of 40 will still be paying off their mortgages in retirement. The escalation of house prices coupled with increased remortgaging activity has meant that many middle aged home owner will have to find enough money in retirement to continue paying their mortgage.    Of people currently in their 40s around one in four expect to still be paying off their mortgages when they retire, 42% said they thought they wouldn’t have got onto the property ladder and would still be paying rent. The figures for people aged…
  • Further Pension Freedom Plans to be Announced

    wendy
    14 Oct 2014 | 1:46 am
    The Treasury is to announce further freedom plans to the way you can access your pension pots. Currently, once a person reaches the age of 55 they can take a one-off lump sum to the value of 25% of their private or workplace defined contribution pension tax-free, which most people do once they first retire. Under the new rules, savers will be able to withdraw money from their pension pots whenever they want – without having to purchase an annuity product. However, until now the 25% tax-free lump sum could only be used once. In future, any withdrawal taken from the pension pot will see the…
  • Interest Rates Remain at 0.5% But Could an Increase be on the Cards Before 2015?

    wendy
    9 Oct 2014 | 4:47 am
    The Bank of England’s Monetary Committee decided once again to keep the interest rate the same and not to raise the level of quantitative easing, keeping it at £375 billion. Despite constant forecasts of an interest rate rise from finance experts, the Bank of England have now kept the base rate of interest at 0.5% for over 5 years and it is unlikely to change this year.     However, seeds of change have begun to sprout, as two of the members of the Monetary Policy Committee have voted to increase the rate to 0.75% in the past two monthly meetings. The economy grew by 0.9% from April to…
  • Government Expects Average Retirement Age to Increase by Six Months a Year

    wendy
    7 Oct 2014 | 6:55 am
    Owing to the ever increasing cost that the country’s pensioners put on the Treasury, the Government is looking to speed up extending the average age at which a person retires quicker. According to plans announced by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP), the average age a person chooses to retire could rise by around six months in a year, although it did not expect each following year to see such a high rise. Whilst the average age of retirement is on the rise, figures suggest that it isn’t going to happen that quickly. From April to June this year, the average age for a man to retire…

  • Another Educated WAG

    23 Oct 2014 | 6:11 am
    At the point where SPX broke hard through the 50% fib retrace the overall trend shifted from bear to unknown in my mind, and it's still in unknown territory now. I'm not assuming that this will resolve in either direction until I see some stronger evidence, but I'll be calling the shorter term likely moves, which at the moment look a decent fit with either bull or bear overall trend. Looking at the pattern setup at the close yesterday, and the recovery overnight, I have a new educated guess for the direction on SPX over the next few days. I'll lay that down here and we'll see how that goes.
  • SharePlanner Reversal Indicator: Bullish Reversal In Place

    23 Oct 2014 | 5:15 am
    The market is all over the place - just think, last week SPX was on the cusp of possibly dipping below 1800's and into the 1700's. In fact, many thought that it would.  But here we are now in the latter parts of October and SPX currently sits at 1954. That is a HUGE reversal and the monthly chart shows it with its insane hammer candle.  I remain skeptical of this market and my exposure to this market shows it. Only 50% of my capital is at work and I won't hesitate to lessen that if the market suggests doing so.  But when you look at the SharePlanner Reversal Indicator on both…

  • 50 Percent Of American Workers Make Less Than 28,031 Dollars A Year

    David Bettencourt
    23 Oct 2014 | 7:28 pm
    The Social Security Administration has just released wage statistics for 2013, and the numbers are startling.  Last year, 50 percent of all American workers made less than $28,031, and 39 percent of all American workers made less than $20,000.  If you worked a full-time job at $10 an hour all year long with two weeks off, you would make $20,000.  So the fact that 39 percent of all workers made less than that amount is rather telling.  This is more evidence of the declining quality of the jobs in this country.  In many homes in America today, both parents are working multiple jobs in a…

The surge in volatility and the related fear were evident in the sharp spike in the Wall Street fear gauge indicator – the CBOE Volatility Index – which recently hit the highest level since November 2011. However, the current frenzy and the nervousness in Wall Street notwithstanding, the REIT corner of the equity markets…
  • Did Peabody Energy Corporation’s (BTU) Q3 Results Impact The Coal ETF?

    David Bettencourt
    23 Oct 2014 | 1:41 pm
    Most commodity producers put great effort into Q3, as sluggish demand from key consuming markets, a stronger dollar and the rise of alternative energy space marred the appeal of commodities. The trend was prevalent from agricultural producers, to precious metals, and industrial resources with the last being thrashed by the manufacturing slowdown in one of the largest economies, China, and the Euro zone. One such commodity hit by these trends is undoubtedly coal. The trend will be better understood if we analyze the coal companies’ earnings in detail. On October 20, Peabody Energy…
  • Stepping Inside Sector Strength During The October Rally

    Corey Rosenbloom: When we see large price movements in the market – like our recent strong rally over the last week – we can break down the picture into smaller pieces by looking at “Sector Strength.” We can study which sectors were strongest, which lagged behind, and what this may suggest for the broader market. Let’s take a look at Sector Strength on the way down from 1,900 (on the S&P 500) and now the path higher: When discussing sectors, we often break them down into the six “Risk On” or Offensive Sectors that typically do best (outperform) during bullish market phases.

While there is certainly room in the middle for investors to take small shots in the dark with speculative trading positions, it’s important to remember that risk tolerance and time horizon can hinder you…

They have a “bewildering” effect on people, says Howard Rachlin, a professor emeritus of psychology at Stony Brook University. So we tend to lump them together; 1 in 10,000 sounds just as bewildering as 1 in 100,000.

Recent stats indicate that 72% of all internet users are active on social media, a number that isn’t likely to go down. 89% of internet users under the age of 30 actively participate in social media platforms – and businesses have taken notice.   Brands are actively engaging their audiences on platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with exciting results. There’s no doubt that social media is one…
  • Uncommon Points of Interest – Houston

    22 Oct 2014 | 5:47 am
    As we work our way through the U.S.’s most common business travel destinations, we continue onto another Texas city you’re likely to visit as a business traveler:  Houston, Texas.   Houston is the fourth largest city in the United States with over 2 million residents and is one of the most diverse with over 90 different languages spoken here. This probably helped at least one of the 801,000 foreign visitors of the 13 million total to have passed through Houston in 2013.   If you know you’ll be headed to the home to NASA’s Mission Control, we suggest you meet an astronaut at…

    16 Oct 2014 | 7:27 pm

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.

  • A Steel Stock To Buy With The Potential To Double

    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.

    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…
  • Long Term Investors Have Been Rewarded

    Mark
    24 May 2013 | 12:49 pm
    I have written many articles citing the benefits of long term investing over short term investing. Beating the market over the short term is simply too difficult for most investors to do. It is close to impossible to time the market. Most long time traders only have minimal success at buying low and selling high over the course of a few days. Long term investing gives the average investor the opportunity to make solid profits and reduces the emotional stress of watching the market day to day. The Dow Jones Industrial Average has surged past the 15,000 level and is even higher than it was…

    Michael Lombardi, MBA
    22 Oct 2014 | 6:50 am
    On November 30, Switzerland’s citizens will cast a very critical vote. Through a referendum, they will vote for or against the Swiss National Bank increasing its gold bullion reserves to 20%, the central bank halting the selling of gold, and the storing of gold bullion in the country. (Source: Kitco News, September 30, 2014.) If the results are in favor of the referendum, it will mean Switzerland’s central bank will be forced to buy a significant amount of gold bullion. According to the most recent data from the World Gold Council, Switzerland has 1,040 tonnes of gold bullion in its…

    Even with the recent price retrenchment, there’s not a lot of value circulating in this stock market. Everything’s already gone up and the capital gains have been great the last few years. But it’s still a slow-growth environment in the global economy, and despite a very accommodative monetary policy, stocks can’t go up forever without experiencing a meaningful retrenchment. Company earnings are pouring in and there have been some disappointments. But for a lot of mature large-cap businesses, this is a reflection of their industries’ cycles.

    It’s widely expected that at the end of this month, the Federal Reserve will end its third round of quantitative easing (that began in September of 2012). This is QE3, where the Federal Reserve was printing $85.0 billion of new money every month and using it to buy U.S. Treasuries and mortgage-backed securities (MBS). In the beginning of 2014, the Fed started reducing the amount of money it was printing each month. Is there another round of quantitative easing (more commonly known as QE) coming? Here’s why I ask… First, U.S. long-term bond yields are collapsing. Back in 2013, when the…

    Amid all the turmoil in capital markets, I’m reminded of all the good corporate earnings being released. Of course, the stock market is a system of discounting future business conditions and the recent sell-off has been pronounced, but stocks have come so far over the last several years. If the catalysts were deflationary pressures among oil prices and global economic activity, a little haircut in share prices is well deserved. One of the first businesses to show a real turnaround after the financial crisis sent stocks and the economy tanking was Winnebago Industries, Inc. (WGO). The first…

    Over the past few months, I warned my readers the stock market had become a risky place to be. While I also suggested euphoria could bring the market higher than most thought possible—to the point of irrationality—the bubble has now burst. Key stock indices are falling and fear among investors is rising quickly. Please look at the chart below of the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) Volatility Index (VIX). This index is often referred to as the “fear index” for key stock indices. If this index rises, it means investors fear a market sell-off. If it declines, investors are…

  • What can be done to tackle the disproportionate house price rises in London?

    Neil Andrews
    7 Jul 2014 | 2:30 am
    Even during the recession when most parts of the UK experienced falling house prices, many parts of London still had positive rises in prices. Therefore with the economy well on the mend, it is hardly surprising that house prices are now growing at a rate of over 20 per cent per annum in some parts [...]

    James Hirsen is as disgusted as we are. Hollywood is never one to let a commercial opportunity go to waste. The potential Ebola pandemic has yet to be contained and Hollywood is already talking about Ebola the TV series. They're always about setting new lows in taste and class. And they never disappoint. We also talked a little bit about Piers Morgan and his failure to take responsibility for his CNN show's failure. But liberals never do take responsibility for anything, do they?

Not surprisingly, the economy is booming and home prices are through the roof. It's easy when you produce nothing and steal the production of the rest of the country. Woody is concerned about the long term prospects for food production. The world's farmers are dying off and the young people don't seem interested. Resources are not being invested to insure the food will be there for the future extra billions of the world's inhabitants.

    New York City politicians are upset over the nearly $15 million spent yearly on storing the homeless's possessions in storage warehouses around the City. It's an outrage that's been going on for too long. But when you're living in a socialist utopia such things are to be expected, right?  Camden New Jersey is doing much better since it fired its police force and the county started a new force from scratch.

It's quite clear that the government is playing politics in not suspending flights to and from the countries where the Ebola outbreak is most serious. This is standard operating procedure and is one of the most effective measures that can be taken to stop the spread of the disease. In addition, the Army should set up a containment centers outside the country for screening those who might be…

Oil tried to rally only to fail in the face of weakling demand expectations and reports of Ebola in New York City. The market seemed to rally after a misinterpreted report on Saudi oil production. While the report suggested that Saudi exports had slowed, production actually went up. The Saudis actually supplied 9.36 million barrels of oil which was 328,000 lower than the previous month. Yet production actually went up by 100,000 barrels. The reduction in exports was really a bearish sign as the demand for…

    As the world continues to strive for better credit card security, Intel has developed a hardware-software program to protect credit card and personal data from being stolen while a transaction is authorized. Once a buyer uses a credit card at a payment terminal, Intel's technology known as Data Protection Technology for Transactions creates layers of security around the data. The POS terminal encrypts the data, and the information is transferred to the credit card processing company through a private tunnel. Then, the bank authorizes the purchase and sends the approval back to the terminal.

  • Paying for College Tuition with Credit Cards Can Be Costly

    Lynn Oldshue
    22 Oct 2014 | 2:38 pm
    Despite the convenience that comes with paying for college tuition with a credit card, the choice to do so could be costly. According to a new research study, the average convenience fee for colleges that accept credit cards is 2.62%. This fee is lumped into your balance so it can cost even more with interest payments if not paid in full by the end of the month. The reason why colleges charge convenience fees is because they are charged a fee from the credit card company. It might be labeled "convenience," but it is really designed to ensure that the school makes their money even if a credit…

    How to Use Your Pension to Reduce Your Tax Bill Incredibly there are now more than 4 million people in the UK who qualify to pay the higher rate of tax (at a not-to-be-scoffed-at 40%). But what many of those higher rate taxpayers do not realise is that they could possibly avoid being caught by the higher rate altogether if they put more of their earnings into their pensions contributions pot. With higher rate taxpayers now matching the peak levels of pre-recession and the threshold getting ever lower, more and more people are now being sucked into the higher rate earnings category.

  • Why Is Gold Considered A Safe Investment?

    23 Oct 2014 | 7:50 am
    Historically, gold has been thought of as a safe haven – somewhere that investors can put their money and protect its value. Why is the case, and is it still true today? The origin of money Early in human history, there was no such thing as money. To carry out trade, people bartered goods. For instance, they might trade a sheep for some clay pots. However, this had significant drawbacks. Barter worked relatively well for direct swaps, but it started to fall apart when trades became more complicated. For example, if I have a sheep and you have clay pots, then I can only get your clay pots if…

    Often, we hear about successful IPOs, but what does an IPO actually mean? Why do companies hold IPOs, and are they a good investment? A first stock sale IPO stands for initial public offering, and it’s the first time that a private company sells stock to the public. Prior to this, all of the company’s stock is held by private investors – for example, company founders, executives and venture capitalists. Typically, young companies will issue an IPO because they want to raise capital so that they can continue to grow. Usually, they won’t sell all of their stock – they only sell enough…
  • Should I Invest In Mutual Funds?

    admin
    21 Oct 2014 | 11:46 am
    In principle, mutual funds are a great way to invest if you don’t have the time or ability to analyze the market yourself. With a mutual fund, the fund manager buys a basket of securities – stocks, bonds and others – with the value of the fund depending on how well these perform. This has two key advantages. First of all, your money is being managed by an investment expert – or expert team – so you should in principle get better returns than if you invest by yourself. Second, because you are in effect investing in a wide range of securities through the fund, your portfolio…
  • How Often Do ETFs Pay Dividends?

    Retail investors are used to mutual funds paying out dividends, but there is often confusion about how an ETF pays dividends. Does it distribute dividends as soon as they are paid out by individual stocks, or is there another approach? Understanding ETFs To understand how dividends work with ETF’s, it’s first important to know what an ETF is. In essence, an ETF is just like a mutual fund, except that it is traded on a stock exchange. ETFs have a number of advantages over mutual funds – fees tend to be lower, they have better tax treatment, and there are no minimum investments. Also,…
  • Is A 401k The Best Way To Save For Retirement?

    admin
    17 Oct 2014 | 8:25 am
    Many Americans treat their 401(k) as the primary way of saving for retirement. A 401(k) is attractive on the surface, since contributions are made before you pay tax – the amount you contribute is deducted from your gross income, not your net income after tax. In fact, you don’t have to pay any tax on your 401(k) until you retire and withdraw your money from your account. This tax deferral also allows your money to grow more quickly, since the returns you earn each year are also tax-deferred. Matching contributions The idea behind a 401(k) is that your employer also matches your…

    As the research into behavioral finance has shown, the words we use and how concepts are framed can have a powerful impact on how we see the world and consider the opportunities that may lie before us. A strategy can go from being appealing to terrifying (or vice versa!) based solely on how it’s explained.

Yet thus far, data from FP Transitions suggests the number of buyers still outnumbers the sellers by a whopping 50:1, and the succession planning “crisis” has been little more than a mirage.

    While no one likes to pay more in insurance premiums than they have to, an important fundamental principle of insurance is that in the end, there must be enough premiums (plus growth) to cover potential future claims (plus overhead and profits for the insurance company). Insurance coverage that is “too” cheap is actually risky, and coverage that is “expensive” is actually the most secure! In fact, one of the most significant caveats to considering any form of insurance (or annuity) guarantee at all is if the insurance is not going to lose you money on average, it’s actually…

    10 Oct 2014 | 3:16 am
    Do you stay glued to the daily ups and downs of stock prices? Do you wonder what to conclude from the prices, fluctuating every now and then? 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. To give you an evident analogy, the dividend on the stock is similar to rent you receive on your…
  • Nifty above 7900, should you still be buying? Nifty@MRP gives you the answer…

    2 Oct 2014 | 1:21 am
    What is Nifty@MRP? As investors, we constantly track the Nifty movements. To make investing more profitable and not a game of mere chance, we need a solution, a solution which could help us identify whether the market is grossly depressed or irrationally exuberant. This is exactly what Nifty @ MRP is for! Considering that the Nifty stocks are the top traded stocks of the country, we expect them to be traded at their MRPs (fair value). But this may not always be true. Thus, Nifty @ MRP gives an indication of whether the Nifty is fairly valued or whether irrationality is driving the markets.

    Road Construction forms the most crucial part of the economy. As per the National Highways Authority of India, about 65% of freight and 80% passenger traffic is carried by the roads. The National Highways carry about 40% of total road traffic, though only about 2% of the road network is covered by these roads. Average growth of the number of vehicles has been around 10.16% per annum over recent years. At 0.66 km of highway per square kilometre of land the density of India’s highway network is higher than that of the United States (0.65) and far higher than that of China’s (0.16) or…

    Aliya Sayyed-Team MoneyWorks4me
    5 Sep 2014 | 3:46 am
    ‘You make your own luck’ - The popularity of this statement comes from the basic human urge to deny any existence of luck and thus have a feeling of ultimate control over one’s future. Yet I more than agree with Howard Marks, when he says in his recent memo that ‘even the hardest workers and the best decision makers among us will fail to succeed consistently without luck’ Randomness (or luck) plays a huge part in in our lives as it does in investing. Thus, while analysing an investment that you made in the past or analysing a successful strategy that worked in the past, it is…

    Whitebox Advisors is a quite successful alternative money manager headquartered in Minneapolis. I enjoy reading Whitebox’s monthly letter describing in a very transparent and articulate fashion what has happened in each of the strategies the firm is managing. In addition, Andy Redleaf, Founder and CEO, always has something unique to say in his broader comments in the letter. He recently wrote a very interesting essay titled “Two Cheers for GAAP.” It is a timeless piece pointing out the growing use of “adjusted earnings” and to some extent the ultimate return by investors to GAAP…

    I spent five minutes on CNBC Power Lunch on Monday primarily discussing small cap stocks.  As usual the CNBC crew wants to be prepared for all possible topics and asked for some preliminary observations on a number of important issues, which I put forth below. Plus, we are finding ourselves in the midst of a significant increase in volatility and some major selling across several asset classes. I thought a reprise of the comments I provided to CNBC would be worth considering, particularly given some additional elements of uncertainty that have come forth in just the last few days.  This…
  • Lessons Learned, Jackson Hole, Two Experiments, and Tail Risks

    Jack Rivkin
    27 Aug 2014 | 4:38 pm
    The message coming out of Jackson Hole was a belief that, while any decisions will be data-driven, the Fed will not rush to raise the Funds rate. At the same time, Mario Draghi’s words were viewed as “dovish” with the likelihood that Quantitative Easing (QE) by the European Central Bank (ECB) will occur at some point soon in Europe. While this is clearly the consensus, we do have two experiments going on and we can all speculate about the outcomes. Now, on to my speculations. I’ll start by suggesting that one read Mohamed El-Erian’s latest piece in Bloomberg View where he posits…

    On August 14th, I did another Power Lunch with Sue Herera (CNBC) and Zach Karabell (Envestnet). As usual, CNBC does a prep for these sessions which involve some responses to likely topics for the 5 minute session on the program. Of course, not all the topics get covered, and even those that do are more focused.  It does force some thinking about the questions and provides a good excuse to do a quick update around the topics of interest. Below are the responses to the specific questions with a few additional thoughts. Q:  We’ve been focused on geopolitics…how much of an impact will…

  • Four Proven Ways Trucking Companies Can Improve Their Cash Flow

    An Ansonia Guest Author: Marco Terry
    10 Sep 2014 | 7:33 am
    Managing the cash flow of a trucking company has always been difficult. As a business owner, you have to manage the constant tug-of-war between revenues and expenses. On one hand, your revenues come from brokers and shippers who usually don’t offer quick-pays. Instead, they want to pay their freight bills in 30 to 90 days. On the other hand, you have to deal with company expenses that need to be paid regularly. A number of these expenses, such as maintenance and fuel, have to be paid as you incur them. In this scenario you can run out of cash, especially if you are growing quickly.

    David Gibson
    24 Oct 2014 | 12:00 am
    Spread betting is an option to conventional investing in which the goal is to profit from movements in the value of financial product. The rewards and the risks are much more higher than traditional trading. Spread betting came a long way over the past two decades, wherein it is seen as a high risk option to the high-street bookie for sports nuts in today’s spread-betting aficionados thinking of themselves as investors. In simpler terms, spread betting is a way to trade in order to benefit from the movements in the value of underlying financial products namely; stock market indices,…
  • Why Use Spread Betting Companies for Market Exposure

    David Gibson
    22 Oct 2014 | 11:06 pm
    Spread betting companies are now providing exposure to financial markets that are often asked with a very straightforward question, “why should investors utilise them in order to derive exposure instead of investing in the markets directly”? There are several number of answers to this query, which if collated explains why the industry has expanded so quickly in recent years. among the first reasons why people regard spread betting as a favourable tax treatment is that it attracts people who are risk takers. As with similar types of gambling, tax is payable at the instance the bet…
  • Large stock market losses grip on depressed commodities

    Gordon Smith
    21 Oct 2014 | 6:10 pm
    Large equity losses tolled on the agriculture markets last week as the USDA Crop Progress signaled the corn harvest was further along than what was earlier anticipated which subsequently weighed on the CBOT futures in the early trade. The late corn’s weakness possibly exemplified a bearish commodity reaction to the hefty losses in the equity markets since those indicate a weak demand outlook. December corn futures plunged 9.5 % to $3.475/bushel at their recent close whereas the May futures slumped 9.5 % to $3.695. Soybean and oil futures were also under immense pressure. The Crop…

Market swings are basically are among the top things in the mind of people who can’t seem to relax following the 2008-2009 stock market crisis. Investors are weary that another event in the five-year bull markets could suddenly turn.

  • Stocks possibly regain ground after sell-off

    David Gibson
    15 Oct 2014 | 4:10 pm
    After it had ended the previous session on a lower position, stocks may possibly move back to the upside in early trading last week. The major index futures are presently pointing to a discreetly higher open for the markets, with the Dow futures up by 15 points. Bargain hunting may contribute to some of the early strength on Wall Street after last week’s sell-off which pulled the primary averages down to their lowest levels in the past 60 days. Early trading activity appears to be subdued, however, with the traders looking ahead to the release of the minutes of the recent Federal…

    Lim Hng Kiang, Trade Minister of Singapore, says that South East Asia has an urgent need for insurance coverage, and that international insurers stand to benefit from the region’s potential. His comments were made at the inaugural ASEAN Insurance Summit in Singapore. Natural disasters have devastated some parts of Asia in the past three years. 2011’s Tohoku tsunami and earthquake in Japan is estimated to have caused US$210 billion worth of damage, which was 3.6% of the country’s total GDP. In Thailand, flooding in 2012 caused US$30 billion worth of losses – around 9% of its GDP.

The gold bulls are also losing technical momentum, which is prompting some fresh chart-based selling interest. December Comex gold was last down $17.50 an ounce at $1,228.00.
