    NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The spike in volatility as a result of the Greek debt crisis has the market on edge and the VIX, or so-called fear index, spiking over 30% to almost 19. Jonathan Angrist, portfolio manager for the Cognios Market Neutral Large Cap Fund, said this choppiness may be rough on investor nerves, but it proves the value of market neutral and other alternative mutual funds. "Market-neutral funds tend to do better than the index when the market's going down," said Angrist. "The reason is that we have shorts so when the market's going up, our long book is making…

    For the last four years, I have been highlighting the idea that when Beijing floats the renminbi, the  currency may go down, not up, which is the exact opposite of what those who accuse China of currency manipulation believe would happen. I had this very argument with Lindsey Graham two weeks ago at a small dinner in New York, where I listened politely to his positions on a variety of topics until he began talking about currency manipulation. Given that the preceding topic had been the Federal Reserve, and considering that the rest of the world considers the quantitative easing that the…

I was there to get a feel for what it was like, and a number of my readers had courteously arranged for me to meet with all sorts of people and do a few presentations. A local group arranged for me to speak at the lecture hall of the Central Bank of Cyprus in Nicosia. There were about 50 people in the room. I was busily working on Code Red at the time and had money flows, quantitative easing, and currency wars at the front of my brain. As part of my presentation, I…

As Yellen recently explained in advance, the removal of the word patience from the Fed’s guidance amounts to fair warning to the rest of the world’s central banks: an interest rate hike is on the horizon. Govern your actions accordingly. (My personal guess, for those interested, is September, with the Fed proceeding exceedingly…

    There is an obsession in the marketplace over the date when the Fed will once again begin to raise rates. As if another 25 basis points is going to change the economics on tens of trillions of dollars of investments. But as we reflect on the issue more deeply, it becomes obvious that a minor bump in the fed funds rate will indeed change a great deal of economics all over the world. No, it won’t do much to the cap rate on your latest real estate purchase, but it is likely to greatly affect the pricing of the currency and commodity markets. And those markets will affect corporate profits,…

  • Due Diligence – Who is in Control?

    29 Jun 2015 | 1:54 pm
    The answer to that is actually in the hands of the business seller. How can that be?  Well, the seller that looks through the eyes of the buyer early in the sale process and does something with that perspective will control the process. Those that don’t let the buyer control the process.  So who cares?  The seller should care the most because elongated due diligence always costs the seller money and far too often, the entire deal. If due diligence starts with the LOI, the buyer is in charge.  If the seller has prepared in advance, and the buyer knows this, the seller is in charge. …

I am sure that many of these entrepreneurs would say that they did plan to sell, hired an investment banker, and went through a process.

That bubble appears to have now burst: by early afternoon local time on Friday, the Shanghai Composite Index had fallen 3.25% to an anemic 3,785.57 points; in the three weeks since it reached a seven-year high, it has lost 30% of its value.

The Greek government called the referendum because it failed to get acceptable terms for debt relief and further assistance in four months of negotiations with the creditors. It felt it couldn’t agree to the last set of proposals received before the expiry of its bailout, because they couldn’t square it with their election promise to end austerity. The referendum will be on Sunday, 5th July. Q. So what are the Greeks actually being asked to vote on? A. They’re being asked to vote on a set of proposals drafted by…

The problem is that the question is so unclear, many don't really understand what Greece is actually voting for or against.

    An update: Last year, I posted some demographic data for the U.S., see: Census Bureau: Largest 5-year Population Cohort is now the "20 to 24" Age Group, Decline in the Labor Force Participation Rate: Mostly Demographics and Long Term Trends, and The Future's so Bright ...I pointed out that "even without the financial crisis we would have expected some slowdown in growth this decade (just based on demographics). The good news is that will change soon."Changes in demographics are an important determinant of economic growth, and although most people focus on the aging of the "baby boomer"…

    By request, here is an update on an earlier post through the June employment report.NOTE: Several readers have asked if I could add a lag to these graphs (obviously a new President has zero impact on employment for the month they are elected). But that would open a debate on the proper length of the lag, so I'll just stick to the beginning of each term.Note: We frequently use Presidential terms as time markers - we could use Speaker of the House, or any other marker.Important: There are many differences between these periods. Overall employment was smaller in the '80s, however the…

    While leaders of the Sacramento region should be highly sensitive to income inequality, raising the minimum wage is not the right way to approach the issue. Small businesses employ two-thirds of the American workforce. Hiking the minimum wage would on the average raise small-business operating costs by approximately 35 percent, according to the National Federation of Independent Business. For many minority and women small-business owners, who already face tremendous barriers, that could be fatal.…

Most people barely make eye contact with fast-food servers while dictating their order. Workers are not accustomed to anyone taking an interest in them at work, said Sasso.

    I read this story earlier this morning. There was once a boy named Bradley. When he was about eight years old, he fell into the habit of thinking of everything in terms of money. He wanted to know the price of everything he saw, and if it didn’t cost a great deal, it did not seem to him to be worth anything at all. But there are a great many things money cannot buy. And some of them are the best things in the world.

    My wife and I were talking recently about a June 5, 2015, New York Times article that described the lifestyle of “Millionaires Who Are Frugal When They Don’t Have to Be.” It got me thinking about the word “frugal.” It will probably never be a sexy concept, but neither does it have to seem like a dirty word. The title of the article seems to conjure a slightly pejorative image — people who are well off but needlessly pinch pennies. The actual content of the article is more favorable. It focuses on people who have settled into a particular niche — the…

    On the surface, savings account rates seem to be stuck in the same rut they have been in for the last couple years; but if you look a little closer, there are some isolated developments that could start to put the interest back in savings account interest rates. According to the FDIC, the average savings account rate nationally is just 0.06 percent — a level that average first dropped to two years ago and hasn’t budged from since. However, some banks are beginning to buck the low-rate trend. Those banks remain exceptions, but the rarity of positive rate developments makes it well…

That crisis changed life in America forever, starting with an almost instantaneous recession, as businesses couldn’t absorb such a dramatic hike in one of the most pervasive costs in the economy.

More importantly we know that whenever the market finishes going down it will then go up and make a new high with the variable being how long it takes. The FTSE 100 recently eclipsed a high dating back to 2000, of course the NASDAQ broke its high from 2000 as well. At some point the Nikkei will break the high from 1989 but again, no one knows when.

  • The Joy Of Portfolio Boredom

    Roger Nusbaum
    30 Jun 2015 | 6:21 am
    My latest for Alpha Baskets looks at the importance of  why investing is a long term proposition that should not offer excitement. As we have discussed many times before, one of the biggest impediments to long term financial success is succumbing to emotion at the worst possible times which can mean panic selling your portfolio at a low or repeatedly panic buying hot stocks at their highs at the height of excitement after a pundit just extrapolated past returns on stock market television. Please click through to read the entire post. Today is the second anniversary of the passing of the…

    The weekly Market Update is posted at Alpha Baskets and covers a lot of ground for any week let alone one that is usually quiet headed into a holiday. From the update; Even then it may not resolve as Prime Minister Tsipras has rejected the proposed “blackmail,” and will impose capital controls, additionally banks and the stock exchange are closed on Monday as Greek citizens continue to take cash out in case the country reverts back to the drachma. Banks are expected to reopen on Thursday. Tsipras has called for a vote by the Greek people on July 5th to decide what to do. Barron’s joked…
  • Alternative Retirement: Working Or Not Retiring

    Roger Nusbaum
    20 Jun 2015 | 7:36 pm
    As we continue to frame out alternative ways to look at retirement and retirement planning I’ve alluded to it being a challenge or puzzle to solve, people by virtue of their circumstances may be forced figure some things out by doing some genuine problem solving. I recently had a conversation with someone (this is unrelated to my work) about another subject that also requires problem solving; I would say longer term problem solving with no immediate resolution likely. The person with whom I was having this conversation could not make the connection to problem solving, I would say the…

    Stephen Lubben
    4 Jul 2015 | 10:37 am
    So I've been off the grid for a few weeks, and of course after months of little to talk about, the world gave us a bounty of stories about financial distress, and related topics, each of which would merit its own post. But I'm going to hit them quickly to get caught up again this holiday weekend: I've always enjoyed reading Hamilton's Report on Public Credit, which has something of a reorganization plan about it, as well as a good discussion of distressed debt trading. Thus, I'm largely in agreement with those that say that Jackson and not Hamilton should go to free…
  • Madden v. Marine Midland Funding

    Adam Levitin
    2 Jul 2015 | 10:54 am
    In a recent case called Madden v. Marine Midland Funding, the Second Circuit ruled that a loan owned by a debt collector violated New York's usury statute.  The loan had been originally made by a national bank and was subsequently sold to the debt collector when it was in default.  There's no question that the state usury law was preempted when the loan was held by the national bank.  The Supreme Court's (awful) Marquette National Bank v. First of Omaha Service Corp. decision from 1978 makes that very clear.  (The Court suddenly discovered in 1978 that over a century of…
  • Notifying Potential Claimants in Diocese Chapter 11 Cases

    Pamela Foohey
    30 Jun 2015 | 3:28 pm
    Since 2004, 12 Catholic dioceses have filed under Chapter 11. The latest case is that of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, which filed in January 2015. The claims bar date is set for August 3. How should the Archdiocese go about notifying potential claimants -- clergy abuse survivors who have not yet come forward and who may feel ashamed and alone -- that they need to file a claim by the bar date? Yesterday the official unsecured creditors' committee (which is comprised of five clergy abuse survivors) filed a motion requesting that the bankruptcy court order all 187 parishes…

    Yesterday the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) went live with its consumer complaint database, publishing over 7,700 consumer narratives detailing problems they have faced with banks, debt collectors, and other creditors. The CFPB also issued a request for information seeking public input on how it can make the data more useful to the public, including how to normalize the narratives to make them more comparable. Which prompted me to search through some of the narratives. The website allows for viewing of the narratives online by products and services, as well as downloading of…

    Indexes ended the first half of 2015 in a very similar fashion to most of the days this year - with little direction. The S&P 500 gained 0.27% and the NASDAQ 0.57%. The S&P 500 posted its smallest gain on record (going back to 1928) for the first half of the year, up just 0.20%. The index ended the quarter 0.24% lower, ending 9 consecutive quarterly gains.

  • 5 Ways This Is Better Than a Bank Loan or Line of Credit

    Meryl Evans
    30 Jun 2015 | 9:51 am
    Before you consider going to a bank for a small business loan or line of credit, you might want to explore another option. A better one because it’s money that already belongs to you. The money you get from the flexible financing is invoice financing, which gives you the cash flow you need to pay expenses and grow your business. It’s also known as factoring and accounts receivables financing. Accounts receivables are open invoices that haven’t been paid. It’s money a company is owed after delivering the product or service. Clients may take 30, 60, 90, or more days to pay the invoice.

While his business made up about a third of hers, she weathered the loss of income because she had enough cash stashed away to cover her while she looked for new clients. Another colleague texted me to let me know that her computer had died. Fortunately, she was able to buy a new computer the same day and restore her backed up files to the new computer.

    Most of us would never own or lease a vehicle without auto insurance. Should the unthinkable happen, insurance can help take care of expensive repairs or a replacement. It protects you in the event of a lawsuit or other drivers who have little or no insurance. Insurance safeguards your assets such as your home, retirement, and investments. Not having business insurance, on the other hand, could mean the end of your business. If the unexpected happens, it could drain your cash flow and it’ll be too late for a small business loan.

  • Frontier Oil And Gas Play With Growth Potential

    Editorial Dept
    3 Jul 2015 | 11:46 am
    Introduction Unlike some of its neighbors, Morocco is not a major producer of oil and gas. Next door, Algeria is a huge natural gas producer, the largest in Africa. It is also the continent’s second largest producer of oil. And its position on the Mediterranean provides it with great access to large markets. Through a series of pipelines, Algeria is a key supplier of natural gas to Europe, second only to Russia. But Morocco isn’t quite as well-endowed. Instead, Morocco is actually a net energy importer. The little bit of oil and gas…

    August Crude Oil futures finished lower last week for a number of reasons. The market started the week under pressure and never looked back. The catalyst at the start of the week was the uncertainty about the financial crisis in Greece. The initial reaction by investors was not caused by the usual supply and demand factors per se, but by investors moving money out of risky assets.On Monday, the Greek government confirmed it wouldn’t be able to make its monthly loan repayment to the International Monetary Fund by the deadline on Tuesday, June…

    With Greece’s debt situation spiraling downwards, the European project is showing some cracks. The July 5 referendum could amount to a vote on whether or not Greece stays in the euro.In the meantime, the turmoil offers an opportunity for Russia to advance its interests. Of course, the EU is an absolutely critical trading partner for Russia, so if the bloc starts to fray at the seams, that presents financial risks to an already struggling Russian economy. Russia’s central bank governor Elvira Nabiulllina warned in June of the brewing…

    You are one of those people who have a hobby or passion that you think you can turn into a successful business. But, you are worried about leaving your full time job and the security that a steady paycheck offers and that you may not be able to get a loan from the bank to fund the startup. If this is the case, you are probably not aware that there are other ways to fund a startup besides a bank loan; one of these is called a Merchant Cash Advance (MCA). Here are some ways that an MCA differs from a bank loan. Interest Rates and Fees Banks often charge not only interest on the money they lend…

    The new trend in corporate culture seems to be taking companies public. Opening companies up to the IPO arrangement takes quite a bit of rearranging, and perhaps quite a lot of courage as well. But once successfully accomplished, going public can certainly bring more than its share of financial vindication. CEO’s are being newly appointed to companies at an unprecedented rate for the specific purpose of taking their companies public, and this seems to be a trend that is not scheduled to pass away any time soon.

    Uncertainty in the Greek economy is nothing new. Greece has been in recession since 2010, at least partly caused by the collapse of international investments in the country. The country struggles with debt as high as 175 percent of GDP and is struggling to pay back its creditors: the European Union (EU), the European Central Bank (ECB), and the International Monetary Fund (IMF). In addition to debt, the Greek economy suffers from structural issues such as powerful cartels and government unions, as well as stifling regulations that make it difficult for foreigners to invest, find jobs, and…

There are several reasons why renting out your cottage can be a good investment.  The amount you charge for rent can help to pay the expenses…

    By Chris Ebert The S&P 500 has hovered around the 2100 level quite a bit recently. That didn’t happen by chance; there’s a very good reason that level is so important right now. It represents a battle zone; and perhaps there is no better way to view that battle zone than by looking at some simple stock options. Covered Call options generally only return losses in a Bear market. Of course, there are always exceptions to any rule. But, for the most part, a Covered Call* (*see specific description below) will always return a profit during a Bull market, and only return a loss during a…

Such accounts are designed to allow folks to contribute funds to the stock market when many of these same folks are working full-time jobs that preclude them from having the necessary time and energy to study the stock market. Thus, these investors are prone to wiping out their hard-earned investments when the stock market gets stormy. Most employer sponsored investment plans offer several ways to…

    The average gym membership costs £368 a year. That’s a lot of cash, especially for those that end up sacking it off on a regular basis. In his book Freakonomics, Steven D.

    Fighting Deception in Today’s Bull Market Economy Just like Warren Buffet says, “Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful.” This couldn’t be a truer and more relevant statement for everyone in the U.S. economy right now. Interest rates are on a steady rise and the recession seems to be getting under control, but it doesn’t mean we can trust the stability – or lack thereof.

I can’t think of a time when I have ever written such a large check for anything. Though I was fortunate to live in a mid-west city where real estate was affordable and priced to sell. It didn’t hurt to buy during the recession either. Fast forward several years later and real estate is starting to climb back to the values of the old days.

    Jim Bach:  Plug Power Inc. (NASDAQ:PLUG) stock hasn’t broken out in a big way since last year, but the PLUG bulls are hanging on. You see, PLUG stock was so low at one point it was in danger of being delisted from the Nasdaq. PLUG stock closed at $0.12 on Feb. 26, 2013. But it came into 2014 hot as Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (NYSE: WMT) – already a Plug Power customer – tripled its orders of Plug’s flagship hydrogen fuel cell product. Wal-Mart wanted to deploy the technology for its forklift fleet in six North American distribution centers. That and CEO Andy Marsh’s…

    Re:Simple Trick to Convert VolatilityReader asks, "I have weekly volatilities over 370 weeks, I like to convert this into an annualized volatility. How does this work?"Since volatility is weekly, in the linear case the multiplier would be 52 (weeks per year) , so for volatility you should multiply your weekly volatility by √ 52.In fact, the length of the measurement - 370 weeks - does not matter at all. If you would have 3 weeks or 7 weeks of weekly volatilities, multiplier would be the same. It is the frequency of observation that matters. To illustrate this consider another…

  • The easiest way to comply with Mexican fiscal regulations

    Emilio Bernal
    29 Jun 2015 | 6:02 am
    Latin-America is a leader in electronic invoicing, in large part due to Mexican legislation that mandates the use of e-invoices for the entire supply chain. Compliance is now built into the entire process--an invoice is either issued or received in conformity or it is not. If it is not in compliance, penalties can, in certain cases, exceed the transaction value and will be considered by the authority as fraud (tax evasion). To make it even more challenging, new requirements will be affecting taxpayers in order to include all participants in the e-economy. In order to stay current and address…

At least, that’s according to Nobel Prize-winning economist Robert Shiller. Measuring the stock market’s current valuation by his cyclically adjusted price earnings ratio—which is price divided by 10-year average earnings—Shiller says “the market valuation is higher than it’s been, except 1929, 2000 and 2007,” which were ominous years for financial The post Robert Shiller: U.S. Stock…

Over the course of decades you'll be eaten alive. Unlike buying and holding single family homes where there's nobody nickeling and diming you into oblivion.

    The Chair of the Federal Reserve is again hinting interest rates might go up before the year is out although predictions from the experts to that effect have been  wrong again and again. "I stand by my prediction that the Fed will not raise interest rates through 2015", says personal finance expert and the Nation' 'Money Answers Man' Jordon Goodman. "There is still a lot of uncertainty here - and abroad - and for that reason I don't believe it will be wise to raise rates this year".

Estimates vary as to the size of the top tier -- some market observers say it’s only about 50 issues, while others may say it is well north of 100. Whatever the number, less-liquid options are largely “trade by appointment,” said Andy Nybo, principal and head of derivatives research at Tabb Group. “Outside of the most active options, it is a quote-driven market,” Nybo…

The similarities end there. Whereas a stock price represents a direct ownership unit of an enterprise, an ETF price is an amalgamation that reflects the value of the underlying securities. And whereas a stock can be transacted only via an all-in price, an ETF can be bought (sold) by essentially building from the ground up (deconstructing from the top down) via its component securities. “It is incredibly important for…

    The value of your home depends on a number of factors, so there is no single answer for a particular home type.

  • Understanding The IRD Deduction That Inherited IRA Beneficiaries Often Miss

    Michael Kitces
    24 Jun 2015 | 4:01 am
    Pre-tax assets like IRAs can face a significant income tax burden as their value grows, a challenge that is only made worse for those who are subject to estate taxes on those assets as well. In the extreme, the combination of the two can consume the majority of the value of an inherited IRA bequeathed to a beneficiary. To help mitigate the combined income-and-estate-tax effect, the Internal Revenue Code allows for an “Income in Respect of a Decedent” (IRD) deduction under Section 691(c). Claimed by the beneficiary of an inherited IRA to the extent of any estate taxes that were caused by…

The big channels include Apple Music, Google Play Music, Spotify, and Pandora Media.  All except Spotify are part of publicly traded companies.  Apple's cash hoard makes it the strongest competitor…

    Managed futures performance can be frustrating for investors. After strong performance in 2014 and into Q1 2015, many may be wondering why the strategy has lost some luster in Q2. The reality is that some of the very strong trends from last year have seen changes in direction. The key to understanding what might happen next is in trying to assess whether those trend changes are corrections against the previous trend or have graduated into full-blown trend reversals. There were price corrections across all four major market sectors in Q2—the US dollar, interest rates and equity indices…

March numbers were revised lower to 85,000 jobs vs. the 126,000 previously reported. Wages rose quite modestly month-over-month.

    The US dollar and capital markets have apparently lost their appeal, especially before a hot weekend in Athens. Despite the somewhat disappointing Non-Farm Payrolls yesterday (223k), the falling Average Hourly Earnings (0.0%), the increased Unemployment Claims (281k) and the declining Factory Orders (-0.1%), the data does little to change the outlook for the economy or the Fed’s view on the interest rate hike in September. Why? Probably because the labor market has created on average 208k jobs this year, well above the growth rate in the labor force, the unemployment rate is at 5.3 %…

    Price markups on medical procedures and visits are known practices in the industry. A recent study analyzed price markups in hospital services to reveal shocking numbers in price gouging with price markups of up to a thousand percent for out-of-network patients and the uninsured. How do these overage charges impact consumers? What is happening? According to the June issue of Health Affairs, some U.S. hospitals are charging outrageous charge-to-cost ratios. The study examined 50 hospitals with high price markups and found medical fees to be ten times more than the Medicare-allowed costs.

    US payrolls came in at the low end of expectations on Thursday prompting a reshuffling of dollar positions. Figures for the two previous months were also revised lower. The dollar dropped against counterparts but regained strength later in the session after markets had time to fully absorb the reports. The headline figure showed that the US economy added 223k new jobs in June. The consensus was at 231k. The number was down on the previous month’s print of 254k but the report breakdown showed that business services, healthcare and financials all saw strong hiring in June. Trending down…

    The AUD/CAD has traded with a bearish note, since January 21 and formed a steady downtrend line in the process. Although the AUD/CAD price penetrated this trend line several times in the last two months, a lack of subsequent bullish momentum in the market failed to carry through the price higher. As a result, AUD/CAD price action has been very choppy over June and the pair mostly remained range bound within 0.9400 and 0.9715. On June 28, AUD/CAD reached lowest level in 2015, at 0.9365, and formed a bearish Doji with a long tail. Technically, it was not a pin bar as the close of the bar was…
  • As Default Looms, Is Puerto Rico the Next Greece?

    On June 29th, Puerto Rico’s governor admitted that the self-governed US territory is unable to pay its $72 billion public debt, fueling significant concern in the bond markets. Governor Alejandro García Padilla is hoping to defer the island’s debt payments as it negotiates with its creditors, most of whom are US-based. Puerto Rico is a US commonwealth territory, as opposed to a municipality, and is therefore unable to declare bankruptcy, which would have given it the option to reorganize its debt while repaying some of its outstanding obligations to its creditors. As a commonwealth…

If you buy a home and rent it out to a third party, it becomes an investment. A better way to put it is that when you are renting, you rent from a landlord. When you buy a home to live in, you are renting from yourself." This is the third and last post of this series.

    Technical Forex
    30 Jun 2015 | 2:48 pm
    Technical Analysis: Other than a minor skirt below the trading channel the Euro has charted an appreciating against the Yen, in an orderly manner.  The break below the 136 level is the understandable enhanced volatility in the backdrop of the Greek crisis.  But the price adjusted back to within the channel quite rapidly.  This gives credence to the notion that a Greek Exit will not be as tumultuous for the Euro currency as what one might expect.  Purely on a technical ground the motive wave appears to be in a diagonal (chart 1) with the 3rd wave in an extension.  But the 5th of the…
