    TRENTON, N.J. -- The $225 million settlement between ExxonMobil  and New Jersey reached this week confirms the oil giant must clean up more than 1,500 contaminated properties from gas stations to refineries - but exactly how much they'll spend or how long it'll take remains murky. Tuesday's settlement between New Jersey's Department of Environmental Protection and ExxonMobil is a payment for the public's loss of the use of land, but the oil company is also required to clean up the sites, which include oil refineries in Bayonne and Linden, 16 other facilities and roughly 1,700 retail gas…

    NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- If there is such a thing as a golden rule for collectibles, it's buy what you love -- and if you're lucky, some of that will be valuable, too. The collectible market is a tricky one, and a lot of what people believe will be valuable winds up becoming completely worthless (remember that '90s Beanie Baby craze?). The sector evolves over time, and interests -- and generations -- change.

    John Mauldin's Outside the Box

    27 Aug 2015 | 4:49 pm
    This is going to be an unusual Outside the Box. I’ve been part of the political process, both as a practitioner and an observer, for some 40 years. I cast my first vote in the presidential election for George McGovern but by the 1980s had made a hard right turn. Over the last decade I’ve been far less involved but no less interested. I’ve been struck during the past month by the continued popularity of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. A recent Michigan Republican primary poll had 55% of the top candidates as clear nonpolitical, non-insider choices. And that doesn’t…
  • Hoisington Quarterly Review and Outlook – Second Quarter 2015

    John Mauldin
    31 Jul 2015 | 10:45 pm
    In today’s Outside the Box, my good friend Lacy Hunt of Hoisington Investment Management reminds us that since the 1990-91 recession, the 30-year Treasury bond yield has dropped from 9% to 3%, a downward move nearly identical to the decline in the rate of inflation, which fell from just over 6% in 1990 to 0% today. Therefore, Lacy says, “(I)t was the backdrop of shifting inflationary circumstances that once again determined the trend in long-term Treasury bond yields.” During that 25-year period, though, there have been nine significant backups, when yields rose an average…

    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…

  • News from the Aviation Industry

    27 Aug 2015 | 10:45 am
    Strong growth on the commercial side of the aviation industry, especially large manufacturers such as Boeing and Raytheon, have created strong cash stockpiles on the balance sheets of major corporate players. Those funds need a home and acquiring new technology (i.e. Raytheon’s merger with Websense) is a productive use of the money. In addition, limits on defense spending has had a tepid impact on companies heavily invested in the public sector leading them to branch out into the private sector through M&A (again, Raytheon’s merger with Websense).

  • Interest Rate Hike and Middle Market Business Owners

    Watercooler talk this spring has been centered on a potential rate hike by the Federal Reserve. It has been nearly nine years since we have seen an increase in rates and we’ve been operating in a near “zero” interest rate environment since late 2008. A rate hike, even a nominal one, will have far reaching implications for investors large and small, at home and abroad. When it arrives, whether later this fall or early next year, the M&A markets will indeed feel the effects of a change in interest rates. The Federal Reserve has the power to influence the economy by…

    Entrepreneurship in America remains vital to the U.S. economic growth.    The number of new business establishments tends to rise and fall with the business cycle of the overall economy.  The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics collects data on new businesses and job creation. The number of business starts is roughly 550,000 per year, yet survival rates are tough.   A major reason is often lack of business capital.

The economic figures will culminate in Friday’s jobs report that should reveal more about the strength of the U.S. economy.

    At its finest, urban development is human-centered--of the people and for the people. In London, a vast playground of nearly nine million residents, this approach is vital for cultivating smarter, more connected communities, as well as promoting the health and well-being of citizens.

A federal appeals court ruled on Friday that the elevated marble plaza surrounding the Supreme Court building is a "nonpublic forum" and thus authorities may prosecute those who protest or pass out leaflets there. "Under the lenient First Amendment standards applicable to nonpublic forums," wrote the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C.

    25 Aug 2015 | 8:00 am
    Yesterday’s market craziness had lots of people on edge. One article I read (from Fortune, mind you) focused on yesterday’s point loss and compared it to other point losses. I’ll admit, when the market opened down over 1,000 points, I thought, “Wow!” Had that number stuck, it would have been by far the largest decline for the Dow Jones Industrial Average. As you can see from the following table, yesterday’s loss of 588.40 was the eighth largest decline in the history of the Dow Jones. RANK POINT LOSS DATE 1 -777.68 Monday, September 29, 2008 2 -733.08…
  • Sale, Sale, Sale (the Way We SHOULD Look at Market Declines)

    JLP
    24 Aug 2015 | 4:28 pm
    I try to look at things differently. Let’s face it, market declines like we have seen in the last week are no fun—especially for those of us who have built up sizable retirement accounts over the years. That said, stock market declines are not all bad. One way to think about them is imagine you are in a store that is having a BIG SALE and your goal is to stock up. I did some research and looked at the price changes for the stocks in the S&P 500 Index (my S&P 500 Index component source returned 502 stocks) from Friday’s close (08/21/2015) to today’s close…
  • Wow…

    24 Aug 2015 | 7:28 am
    Take a look at the following image that I snagged off the WSJ Markets page: As you can see, the DJIA has made up about half of its opening loss. Sounds good until you realize it’s still down 432 points. It’s going to be a long day.

  • 8 questions to ask before lending money to friends

    Richard Barrington
    25 Aug 2015 | 1:00 am
    It’s one of the most awkward questions a friend can ask you: “Will you lend me some money?” Awkward for your friend to have to ask, and awkward for you to have to answer. Saying “no” could adversely affect your friendship. However, saying “yes” could also put a strain on your friendship, and your finances. If you get asked that awkward question, you should follow up with eight questions of your own before you decide whether or not to lend a friend money. 1. Why does your friend need the money? Sometimes, there is a clear, one-time need for which a…
  • 6 reasons to overcome a fear of plastic

    Richard Barrington
    29 Jul 2015 | 1:00 am
    As I was coming of age, I became aware of too many examples of people who had gotten into trouble with credit card debt. It made me avoid getting a credit card for several years. Eventually, though, I overcame my fear of plastic, and realized it is the user and not the card that should be in control. A healthy concern about credit card use is not misplaced. After consumers reined in their spending in the immediate aftermath of the Great Recession, they have expanded their credit card debt in each of the last four years, and that debt is on the rise again in 2015. Still, having a credit card…
  • “Frugal” is not a dirty word

    Richard Barrington
    30 Jun 2015 | 1:00 am
    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…
  • 7 financial lessons recent college grads still need

    Richard Barrington
    15 Jun 2015 | 1:00 am
    Around this time of the year, new college graduates are leaving their schools with a wealth of knowledge. At the end of their four (or six, or eight…) years of college, graduates have typically tackled a wide range of academic subjects, often with an impressive degree of complexity. Unfortunately, one type of lesson many of them are missing as they venture out into the real world is basic schooling in personal finance. Here are seven personal finance lessons that recent grads might find helpful, because they probably were not taught these things in school: Student loans need a repayment…
  • Is the tide turning for savings accounts?

    Richard Barrington
    19 May 2015 | 6:30 am
    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…

  • Lessons and Blessings in Trading

    30 Aug 2015 | 5:46 am
    If everything in life either provides you with blessings or lessons, you will always profit, even when you lose money.Viewing life through the lens of blessings and lessons means that you approach the world with a sense of gratitude.  There are a number of emotional and health benefits associated with gratitude, but perhaps the greatest benefit is that it promotes resilience.  It is through adversity that we stretch our boundaries and discover hidden reserves and talents.  As long as we take risks prudently, whether in romance or in markets, losses can become gifts once we seek…
  • Live Your Life the Way You Want to Trade

    A major problem I encounter among professionals is that they pursue business through busy-ness.  They equate doing more and getting items off their to-do lists with being productive.  In the recent Forbes article, I provide an alternate perspective:  one in which unstructured time can be the most productive time of day.Here is an important principle of trading psychology:  You can only manage your trading capital--and your trading--as effectively as you manage the rest of your life.Take that one to the bank.Will we truly trade in a rule-governed, responsible way if we live…

    Friday, August 28th*  Buying weakness yesterday ended up being a useful strategy for much of the day, but a strong selloff and then buying reversal in the last two hours of the trading session made for volatile trading.  I continue to expect these volatility aftershocks to be with us, as noted in Wednesday's post.  That being said, the pure volatility measure has been generally trending down over the past several sessions, though it's still at historically high levels.  *  The pattern of improving breadth has continued.  Interestingly, we had 131 stocks across…
  • Adapting to the Market's True Clock

    The previous post illustrated why trading is challenging, as markets change their volume, volatility, and trendiness--sometimes quite radically.  On Friday, for example, SPY traded with a true range of over 3%, three times the average daily true range of the previous 20 trading sessions.  Volume expanded to over 345 million shares, also three times the average volume of the prior 20 sessions.  Friday's pure volatility (volatility per unit of volume) rose to twice the level we had averaged since April--meaning that, not only were we getting more volume coming into the market,…

  • Stop Orders: Vestige of a Bygone Era?

    Roger Nusbaum
    26 Aug 2015 | 7:38 am
    My latest at Alpha Baskets looks at the extent to which some investors “got hosed” on stop orders that elected during that 10 minute, 1100 point swoon on Monday. As I discuss in the post, something seems to have changed with the exchanges’ reliability and how they execute orders. While it would be great to solve these issues, it is for now most important to be aware of them. Earlier in the week I was joking with a colleague about how in the 1990’s the online brokerages had outages or other forms of disruption all the time, it was after all the dawn of the internet as a…

Longer excerpt than normal; The current decline when plotted out on a chart looks like a Black Diamond ski run.

    My latest for Alpha Baskets looks at taking the proper view of time horizon and letting the long term be your investing ally. A big obstacle for many investors is that they focus on the wrong time frame. From the post; The way I try to put the issue of time and the advantage of longer term perspective is to ask “without looking, how did your portfolio do in the 4th quarter of 2013 and how did that compare to the market?” No one knows, without looking, because it doesn’t matter, it is just some random quarter in the past just as the current quarter will soon be some random quarter from…
  • Rent or Buy?

    Roger Nusbaum
    14 Aug 2015 | 8:10 pm
    The Fiscal Times had a short post noting that rents in many large US cities has skyrocketed. Los Angeles had the highest rental burden, with residents spending a staggering 49 percent of monthly income on rent. San Francisco was close behind with 47 percent. Renters paid 45 percent of their income in Miami, and 41 percent in the New York metro area. The post also noted that mortgages now consume only 15% of income. Zillow was cited as the source and while the rent numbers make intuitive sense I would not be surprised if the 15% number might be a little low but who knows. Long time blogging…

  • Puerto Rico Seeks Help From the Supreme Court

    Melissa Jacoby
    22 Aug 2015 | 7:07 am
    Puerto Rico is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review the First Circuit decision that Puerto Rico's Recovery Act is preempted and thus unconstitutional. Here's the petition. In addition to parsing the legal issues, the petition is framed around Puerto Rico's financial emergency, the need for the Supreme Court to step in notwithstanding the lack of circuit split (or even a dissent to the First Circuit ruling). It makes sense that Puerto Rico would challenge a ruling making it harder for the Commonwealth, in a nebulous legal zone, to write laws to solve its problems. The…
  • New personal insolvency laws cover (almost) all of Europe

    This summer saw a flurry of legislative activity in Europe with respect to personal bankruptcy. New laws emerged in Cyprus, Romania, Hungary, and (though it is not an EU Member State) Russia. These laws differ substantially among each other and from earlier models, which will give me a lot to write about in the coming years, but it is notable that the list of non-adopters in Europe is rapidly dwindling. Only Bulgaria, Malta, and the newest EU Member State, Croatia, lack such a law, and at least in Croatia, the subject has been on the legislative docket recently. It will really be interesting…
  • CFPB Data Collection

    I've got an op-ed in the American Banker about the CFPB's data collection, which has become the latest inside-the-Beltway attack on the CFPB.   The problem is that the CFPB's data collection critics (and here and here and here, among others) don't understand the first thing about the nature of the data collected by the CFPB.  Newt Gingrich, for example, worries about the civil liberties implications of the CFPB seeing your credit card bill. I'd be worried about that too, but that's not the data the CFPB's getting.  Nor is it getting metadata that can…

    After all the volatility this week it was ironic to finish on a day much more typical of a lazy August. The S&P 500 gained 0.06% and the NASDAQ 0.32%. The "easy trade" (buy the massive gap down Monday on rarely seen oversold conditions, sell after a big bounce) is over and it gets difficult from here as there has been some damage done to both the indexes and many individual charts.

But instead of falling off a cliff, buyers came in and there was another surge to close out the day in the last 90 minutes. The S&P 500 gained 3.90% and the NASDAQ 4.24%.

    Are your customers satisfied with your company? Or are they very happy with your company? There is a difference here. Satisfied isn’t enough to hold on to them. They can easily switch if they notice problems with the product or service, or something better comes along. The 2014 State of Multichannel Customer Service Survey from Parature has found that 65 percent of the respondents stopped using a company’s products or services because of poor customer service experience. After receiving bad customer service experience, 2014 Global Customer Service Barometer [pdf] from Ebiquity has found…

    How much should you spend to get new customers? When a deal or promotion opportunity comes your way that brings in new clients and grow your business, how do you figure out whether the deal will pay off? Your gut feeling may have come through for you in the past. You let it dictate how much is just right, too much, or too little. What you think costs too much may end up bringing in more customers and profit than you expect. Without knowing a client’s lifelong value, it’ll be impossible to determine whether an acquisition cost is too high or too low. If the lifelong value of a customer is…

    “Cash is king.” No doubt every small business owner has heard that. That’s because a small business can’t survive without cash flow. All the great talent means zilch if you can’t pay them and your bills. But what brings in the cash? Your accounts receivable, or A/R. Accounts receivable is an accounting term for what your clients owe you for the products or services you delivered. Your invoices are a generated accounts receivable.

    FIVE years ago I learned to ride a motorcycle, and since then I’ve traveled the lower 48 states and parts of five Canadian provinces on my bike. Mostly solo. Take to the open road on a motorcycle and you’ll learn plenty about your relationship with fear. I’ve survived punishing weather, distracted drivers, a stolen wallet, running out of gas, and having trouble finding a safe place to sleep at night, among other escapades. The question I’m most often asked about my lifestyle is, “Aren’t you afraid? —either of traveling so exposed on a motorcycle, or solo,…

    Readers probably have whiplash after the wild ride this week. On Monday, global markets crashed at frightening speeds, with oil prices spiraling out of control. China’s stock market meltdown raised fears of it spreading globally. Fresh intervention by the Chinese central bank has halted the decline for now.

    Iraq has managed to ratchet up oil production to record highs, against what would seem to be insurmountable obstacles. Despite political gridlock, a fight against ISIS militants, and the ongoing need to invest in critical infrastructure, Iraq has succeeded in boosting oil production above 4 million barrels per day (mb/d), with significant month-on-month increases over the course of much of 2015. That is enough to make it the second largest OPEC producer behind only Saudi Arabia. Yet, like most of the oil-producing world, Iraq is facing a significant…

    Friday, August 28th, 2015 What They Hate The Most – Long Hours I read lots of articles that mention how much people working in accounting firms, below the partner level, hate the long hours. When I survey employees and talk to them, they rarely mention the extended office hours during January through April or the occasions when a client really needs to be served. One thing they don’t like is the emails they receive from partners at 5:00 a.m. or 11:00 p.m. all year long. They read into this that they should be working at 5 a.m. and 11 p.m. They certainly don’t want to be a…
  • Kansas Tax Amnesty 2015

    26 Aug 2015 | 2:02 pm
    The Kansas Department of Revenue (KDOR) has a new tax amnesty program. That means if you owe back Kansas taxes you can avoid paying the interest and penalties on the tax. The catch? You have to pay off the full tax by October 15, 2015. Between September 1 and October 15, 2015, taxpayers who owe taxes for tax periods that ended on or before December 31, 2013 can apply to for amnesty. If they haven’t filed their returns those have to be submitted with the application. This program is not open for taxes that have been audited or adjusted by the IRS or under investigation by KDOR.

Specifically, I want to talk about records and receipts for your back-to-school expenses. Nope I’m not talking about that cute dress or awesome backpack you bought for the first day of school. I want to talk about college expenses; tuition, fees, books, supplies and room and board.

It, definitely has become more difficult during the recent talent wars. Every firm you compete with wants your people. Firms across the country want your people. And, these other firms will pay them more. You have to do the chair massages, special coffee, ice cream socials, bowling events, mini-golf in the hallways….. the list goes on. Oh yes, your real employee benefit menu has to be up-to-date and generous…. great pay, plenty of PTO,…

    30 Aug 2015 | 5:00 am
    By Chris Ebert Sometimes it can be helpful for a trader to step back for a few minutes and view the stock market from a different perspective – a perspective in which much of the ordinary noise is absent. While there is a place for up-to-the-minute news and charts of stock prices, there is also value in the quiet solitude of an option trader’s perspective. This past week was unlike anything that has occurred in recent times in the stock market. The nearly-unprecedented decline in stock prices that sent the Dow Jones plummeting over 1000 points Monday (intraday) was followed by an equally…

You want the quality of decision-making in your boardroom to be as high as possible, and having a positive atmosphere certainly helps in that respect. The whole idea of a boardroom can seem daunting.

    Applying rule of reason aligns with familiar antitrust principles, but may also signal intent to stop conduct in early stages The US Federal Trade Commission recently issued guidance on its enforcement efforts against ‘unfair methods of competition’, clarifying how the agency will use its authority under Section 5 of the FTC Act to deal with anti-trust and other anticompetitive practices when the Sherman Act and the Clayton Act may not apply. In a statement, the Commission said it would use a modernized version of ‘the rule of reason’ as a framework for enforcement…

    Taxes: How Much You Really Pay We all hate it, but it’s a fact of life, as certain as death, as the old saying goes. There are federal income taxes, state income taxes, sales taxes, city taxes, property taxes, and even death taxes (see [insert Link to Death Tax Blog]). When you combine all the taxes, it may be surprising to learn just how much of your hard-earned income you actually get to keep—and how much is handed over to the Tax Man. First, the federal government taxes your income, and assuming you are not self-employed, conveniently takes its share right out of your paycheck.  It…

The IRS defines this tax as “a tax on your right to transfer property at your death.” The controversy surrounding the Death Tax spans from those paying this tax and those fighting for it, citing that “this tax prevents an oligarchic concentration of wealth to a few families, and is the best way to encourage the wealthy to contribute to charities and foundations.

  • Sorry, bankruptcy rarely wipes out student loan debt

    28 Aug 2015 | 6:32 am
    Hi Erica, I am thinking of doing Chapter 7 bankruptcy and wondering why some things can be included and other things cannot. I have $80,000 in student loans (deferred so far) and almost $20,000 in combo credit cards and collection debt. I'm not working now. If I go through with this, I can get rid of the combo debt but not my biggest, my student loan. Why? Does is make any sense for me then? –Pat Dear Pat, The bankruptcy you mention allows qualified individuals to discharge many types of financial obligations. That's pretty amazing, because once they're forgiven, you…
  • How biometrics can protect future card transactions

    27 Aug 2015 | 7:17 am
    MasterCard announced a small pilot program in June 2015 with 500 users using facial recognition to verify the identity of the cardholder to authorize a transaction, essentially like taking a selfie before you pay. While MasterCard made headlines for its clever use of selfies, it isn't the only financial institution to use biometrics to authenticate a customer's identity. For example, USAA became the first U.S. financial institution to allow customers to log onto its mobile app using facial and voice recognition. As futuristic as it may sound, biometric security (checking…
  • How some credit scores offered by card issuers are different

    Hi Erica, Is a credit card credit score the same as a FICO score or should I get both? If I get the credit card (through Citibank) that also has a score with it, I can check it all the time for free, but if it's fake, I'd like to know before I get the card.  – George Dear George, The score you would get with the Citi card is different from the one you'd purchase from myFICO.com. However, it's still genuine. In fact, it's what credit card issuers use to determine a person's creditability. Most people are familiar with the FICO score version that ranges from…
  • 6 ways rewards cards can backfire

    25 Aug 2015 | 6:24 am
    Rewards cards are great for savvy spenders who pay off their balances in full each month, but can backfire big time for newbies, shopaholics and consumers with shaky finances. “Some people are hypnotized by the whole rewards card thing,” says Wayne Sanford, a Texas-based credit expert and owner of credit consulting company New Start Financial. “But you really want to read the fine print and look for the gotchas.” Here are six ways rewards cards can, at best, disappoint you and, at worst, leave you in worse financial shape — and how you can prevent each one from happening: 1.

  • The Badgers Are Still Angry

    28 Aug 2015 | 6:43 am
    I remember a trading bud describing the tape in the strong bear move in 2011 as angry badger tape. We've been seeing that again this week and I think we could see yesterday afternoon that the badgers are still angry. If you're trading this intraday then you really might consider taking today off. If you are swing trading then watch the key levels carefully. What are the key levels today? There is only one really important one today on SPX and that is the open gap from yesterday morning. That was retested and held in the wild move yesterday afternoon. As long as it holds and bulls make new…
  • Today's Trading Plan: Does The Rally End Here

    28 Aug 2015 | 1:10 am
    Technical Outlook: SPX gapped and ran hard yesterday back above 1972 resistance and is nearly 2000 again.  Late day antics saw SPX drop 40 points two hours prior to the close, only to rally back 40 points in the final hour - insanely volatile and not indicative of a healthy market.  At this point, I suspect that the dead-cat bounce is going to show signs of running out of steam.  When this happens, I'll be expecting another leg down in the market.  Volume on this bounce remains well above average but continues to drop for a third consecutive day on SPY.  I don't see…

    27 Aug 2015 | 12:25 am
    Technical Outlook: One of the largest bounces the market has ever seen unfolded yesterday, sending SPX back above 1900 to 1940.  These dead cat bounces can easily last 2-3 days before the selling resumes.  Here is what you should be asking yourself - in six days, SPX drops 234 points non-stop - over 10%. Are we really to assume the sell-off is now over in just six days and we are all going to be back on the road to new all-time highs? I think not.  SPX looking to break above the 5-day moving average today at the open.  Volume on on SPY remains extremely elevated, but has…
  • Lower Band Bungee Jumping

    26 Aug 2015 | 6:36 am
    Yesterday was a classic lower band ride day with a touch of the 2SD daily lower band, an AM high that failed, and a gap fill and lower low. The obvious target is still the 1820 area and as long as the lower band ride continues then I think we may well make that target today. SPX closed back within the 3SD lower band yesterday, so SPX just missed a record breaking three consecutive closes below that. For today I'd be looking for an AM high that would ideally test the daily 2SD lower band which closed yesterday at 1927. Any high under Monday's high at 1954.09 is theoretically acceptable but I'd…

    Sweta Killa:  The U.S. stock market showed an impressive turnaround after six days of brutal losses, which threatened the six-year bull market and sent the major bourses into the correction territory. Most of the rally came after the Fed officials signaled that the September rate hike is less likely given the China turmoil, falling oil prices, and weakness in emerging markets. Adding to the strength was a spate of better-than-expected economic data that outweighed global concerns arising from the China turmoil. Among the most notable, the U.S. economy expanded at a much higher rate of 3.7%…

The first chart shows both the nominal per capita disposable income and the real (inflation-adjusted) equivalent since 2000.

    Even as the Canadian economy and dollar have been slipping, travel, both for business and pleasure, is a bright spot. All over the news, you see evidence that travellers are pumping billions into the Canadian economy. Taking care of business Earlier this year, GBTA Canada released a new report showing just how important business travel is to the Canadian economy, and it’s huge. The study, sponsored by Intercontinental Hotels Group, found that business travel spending in Canada reached $23.5 billion in 2013, the latest year for which stats are complete.  That makes business travel…

    Sam Brenner
    21 Aug 2015 | 11:01 am
    There are two ways to make a car faster: get a bigger engine or make it lighter. The options for improving business performance are no different. You can drop in a bigger business engine by adding more people or funding, or you can make your business lighter through streamlining and simplification. What does all this have to do with the Mazda Miata?   Well, if you've ever driven or been the passenger in a Miata, you know a bigger engine isn't an option. There’s zero room to spare. Similarly, raising more capital isn't always an option for businesses. Even if it is, hiring and funding…
  • Four intense travel and expense business pressures and where SMBs can find relief

    Katy Beloof
    19 Aug 2015 | 4:07 pm
    Flying blind? Aberdeen Group research finds visibility, costs, lack of control and mountains of paper are the four greatest business pressures when it comes to travel and entertainment expense reports. In a recent Aberdeen research study the number one concern was poor visibility into travel and entertainment spending – 57% said they worry about that. They have a point – the paper chase of spreadsheets and receipts means it can take weeks, even months, for an expenditure to show up where you can see it. Even some “automated” systems give imperfect visibility. You can only make good…

In the past year, H&R REIT sold a number of properties, in part to free up cash for further acquisitions and to fund a partnership with a U.S. firm.

  • How The Largest Actively Managed Mutual Funds From 15 years Ago Performed

    17 Aug 2014 | 8:43 pm
    You can't go long without reading an article about the death of active management. Somewhere in a discussion like that you will also hear that the larger a fund gets the more likely it is to under-perform. My purpose of this post is not to get into either of those issues but I thought it would be interesting to take a glimpse back in time to the largest funds of 1999 (15 years ago).For this exercise I decided to screen for the largest actively managed funds 15 years ago (8/1999) which had the S&P 500 as their prospectus benchmark. The top 10 results looked like thisSo how did they do?

So Mrs Jones current loan balance is $7400, it has a 15% interest rate with monthly payments of $150. This means that the loan will take 78 payments (months) to payoff and TOTAL INTEREST paid over the life of the loan will be $4,178 (yes below it equals $4,180 due to rounding).However, if she decides to take out a new larger…

If you don’t tick their boxes then you may find your mortgage declined. This does not mean that you cannot get a mortgage, there are other mortgages out there that you may not know about.

But, other Asian countries have been strong buyers and the economic weakness in China could hurt demand from those countries. The loss of China as a customer has forced exporters to look elsewhere for business, and Southeast Asia has become a prime buyer. Vietnam has become a strong buyer of US Cotton as its textiles industry develops, but other countries in the region buy from other sources such as Australia…

Exchanges can provide a full suite of raw data chronicling executed trades, but that’s the equivalent of a rack rate for a premium product.

    James Helliwell

    As business magnate Warren Buffett once said “do not save what is left after spending, but spend what is left after saving”. Easy to say when you’re a billionaire, but Buffett’s quote rings true to all forms of transaction. It is surely best to invest in the future with the money you have saved than spending all and having nothing to work with after. Perhaps the same could be said for the property industry and the way in which the digital age has paved the way for do-it-yourself listing. This has resulted in homeowners saving a lot more cash to invest in their property as opposed to…

It’s important to concentrate on customers, profits, employees and investors when first starting a company, but you need to avoid a common mistake that can easily wipe out your business before you’ve had real success; you need to mitigate risk by purchasing adequate amounts of business insurance. Statistics show that about 44% of start-ups don’t stick around for more than four years, and one of the main reasons that they have such a low success rate is poor risk management. Fortunately,…

But the global economy may be entering a period of stagnation. Over the last 35 years, the economic growth necessary to increase living standards, increase wealth and manage growing inequality has been based increasingly on rising borrowings and financial rather than real engineering. There was reliance on debt-driven consumption. It resulted in global trade and investment imbalances, such as that between China and the US or Germany…

    Bitcoin regulations, is it good or bad? Well, the debate continues. The government and central bank say it is necessary to protect the interests of the nation and its citizens while a part of bitcoin community begs to differ.

However, that is not going to change much, governments will try to and eventually succeed in bringing about regulations that will help them keep an eye on and even control bitcoin usage if deemed…

    Equity is said to be the cheapest form of raising funds for a Company since there is no obligation to pay any dividend to the Equity Shareholders but it is also highly risky in nature. Since it is risky in nature, the maximum amount of profit can also be achieved through the form of Equity. It goes with the economic fundamental which says “Greater the risk taken greater the profit / loss, lesser the risk taken lesser is the profit / loss”.

And despite FutureAdvisor having “just” $600M of AUM, and an estimated $3M of revenues, Blackrock’s purchase was rumored to be in excess of $150M. However, it appears that Blackrock’s strategy was not simply to buy FutureAdvisor to expand its direct-to-consumer solution, but instead to pivot FutureAdvisor to become a robo-advisor-for­-advisors solution, and license/offer the…

However, the weakening of the yuan in the short term has overwhelmed other factors affecting the global economy and central bank decisions—at least in the minds’ of the media. There are other factors that come into play as well, including the actual pace of both US and global economic growth, productivity, and commodity prices. Let’s try to put these in perspective.

    17 Aug 2015 | 8:46 am
    Asia is a continent with huge potential and a multitude of growth opportunities in various industries. The tech industry in the region is growing at a fast pace, though it is not the only opportunity that can be found. There are many other rising industries, and they remain untapped at this day. One of the many reasons why investors should look more into Asia is because of the continent’s fast-developing high-tech environment. While everyone knows about the innovation coming out of Silicon Valley, companies from tech hubs such as Singapore, Hong Kong and Tokyo are under the radar of…
  • Weak Exports Pressure China’s Economy

    Reid K.
    12 Aug 2015 | 10:44 pm
    China’s exports saw a disappointing drop of 8.3% in July. This was much more than expected, marking the biggest drop in exports in 4 months. Beijing is now under pressure to take action and stimulate the world’s 2nd largest economy. The forecasts predicted only a drop of 1%, following an uptick of 2.8% last month. However, the data that came out on Saturday suggests a decreased demand from Europe, with a drop of 12.3%. The US, China’s biggest market, also dropped by 1.3%. The fall in exports to the United States was the first one since March. The Japanese market, another big…

    Reid K.
    11 Aug 2015 | 6:18 am
    Over the last few months, the uncertainty over when the U.S. Federal Reserve will tighten rates has created downward pressure on the rupiah. As part of its effort to spur a recovery from the 2007-2009 Financial Crisis, the U.S. Fed has kept rates at a near-zero level since December 2008. But due to its sizable current account deficit, Indonesia, Southeast Asia’s largest economy, has been one of the worst hit by outflows since the Fed first announced that it’s tempted to raise rates soon. So far this year, the rupiah has been emerging Asia’s second-worst performing currency…

    Its military regime, coupled with sanctions, forced economic isolation upon Myanmar for 49 years. This has caused the Southeast Asian nation to fall behind many of its ASEAN counterparts in terms of economic growth and living standards. In 2009, together with North Korea, the economy was named the least free in Asia. Since 2011, the year the quasi-civilian government of President Thein Sein came to power, Myanmar has seen some positive trends. Social and political reforms were started and are still in progress. Foreign capital has reacted favorably to those reforms, with foreign direct…

    In the wake of Thailand’s coup in 2014, Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-o-cha quickly disbursed over the over US$3 billion owed to farmers from the ousted government’s politically hamstrung rice price subsidy scheme. It appeared that the country’s new military rulers had the will and means to break the bureaucratic inertia that had stalled fiscal spending under successive elected administrations. One year later, however, it is business as usual. While the government has pledged the highest proportion of investment in seven years in its newest budget plan, Prayuth’s economic…

    Gunasekhar’s ambitious magnum opus Rudramadevi has been in making for nearly 3 years now. The film is also India’s first historical 3D film and it has a few epic battle sequences. Expectations are quite high following the huge success of Baahubali, which also falls in the same genre. Here’s some big news. If the latest buzz is to be believed, Gunasekhar is currently dubbing Rudramadevi into Kannada. This move comes right after the Competition Commission of India (CCI) recent ruling against the ban on dubbing of other language films in Kannada. If the film indeed materializes,…

    Taking a little break from personal finance, I thought I’d talk about some things that amuse me of late.  One of the biggest things I’ve recently been turned onto is Russian Car Crash videos.  You can find thousands of them on Youtube, just start typing Russian Car, and it’ll come right up.  Here is a channel that I’ve found is one of the more entertaining. The reason that there are so many from Russia is that, from the sounds of it, just about every driver installs a dashcam.  I guess insurance fraud is rampant over there, so companies will offer…

    My mother-in-law is very close to retirement.  She actually gave her notice and then very nicely agreed to work a bit longer when they didn’t find anyone to replace her by the time she was set to leave.  But, her clock now is ‘any day’ and I know she’s looking forward to it. This past Christmas, my father-in-law gave her a present, a little countdown clock that counted down the number of days, hours, minutes, and seconds to her official date. It reads zero now, and I’m wondering if we might possibly send it to Jim Cramer and have him program it.

    Over a year ago, I wrote about a plan to take on clutter, and while we tackled many of the items mentioned, we didn’t get to all of them, and in some areas, the reduction was just window dressing. The major area where this applied was our basement. Our basement has slowly been cluttering out of control for quite some time.  Despite some de-cluttering of targeted areas, the overall growth in clutter was winning. I started to realize that we were losing the battle here, and unfortunately, that only made the problem worse over the last few months, because of the natural tendency to…

    A month ago, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) finally released Windows 10 final build after extensive testing. Since its release, the OS has already been installed on over 75 million PCs, reports Microsoft. Windows 10 differs from the previous Windows versions in one regard; it is the last numbered iteration of Windows. This means that all further updates to Windows will be rolled out via the Windows Update service, rather than the release of a new version. So, its easy to see why Microsoft decided to force updates on Windows 10 users.

    David Townsend

    Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) took a risky move a few years back by buying an oil refinery that was on the brink of shutting down completely.

The main target was to help the company with its margins on the market and a refinery is a good option to start with. Having oil prices playing the most significant roles, owning an oil refinery is a pretty good option. The initially bad results proved most of the skeptical analysts correct but with the passage of time, the oil refinery is sprouting…

    28 Aug 2015 | 9:59 am
    By Arunima Chakrabarty In August, India’s wholesale inflation rate continued its downward slide, for the tenth consecutive month. The Wholesale Price Index fell by 4.1% on a year-on-year terms in July 2015[1], the steepest decline recorded since the official monthly series began in 1982. This is unprecedented in a country where decline in price indices are extremely rare in recent times.  What does this mean for the Indian economy? Are we falling into a vicious deflationary trap? Is India following the footsteps of Japan? Is the situation really worse? While the WPI continues to slide,…

Along with his uncle’s son Raman, Sarvan was lured into a visit to a big city, far away from the sleepy village of Siljori in Bihar’s Banka district. In his uncle’s words, the city was so big that even the moon seemed closer from there. Tucked in the berth of a sleeper class train with a steel trunk clasped to his chest, he started his journey to Delhi, the Promised Land. I happened to meet Sarvan at a local confectionary shop, where a woman was asking him to fetch a box of cereal kept on one of the…
