    Sky International, a Korean logistics company, has plans to build Myanmar’s first cable car system as the Southeast Asian country seeks to further develop its infrastructure, transportation and desirability as a tourist destination. A joint venture was formed between Sky International and Asia International Fisheries, a business in Myanmar, to create Sky Asia. The new venture, of which 80% of it is owned by Sky International, won a 50-year contract from the Myanmar Investment Commission (MIC) in December of 2014. It has since laid out plans to create a cable car project worth US$20 million.

    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,…

    5 Mar 2015 | 4:38 pm
      NEW YORK (TheDeal) – Navistar International long stuck in the slow lane following a disastrous bet on new engine technology, is increasingly showing signs that the worst is behind it. And it is quite possible the truck maker won't remain independent long enough for management to complete the turnaround. Lisle, Ill.-based Navistar on Tuesday reported a loss of $42 million in its fiscal first quarter, or 52 cents per share, a result that exceeded Wall Street expectations and came in far better than the $3.05 per share loss recorded in the same period a year prior.

  • 7 Energy Stocks That Look Cheap Due to Bankruptcy Fears

    5 Mar 2015 | 3:30 pm
    NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Here's one more reason to buy energy stocks. Besides cheap oil, the group is weak because of investor fears that many energy companies will run into financial trouble and go bankrupt. But this is unlikely to be a problem, for a simple reason. Oil service companies and banks know that oil producers are profitable long-term partners. So they'll help them out by making concessions rather than hold them to contracts and loan deals that would put them under. That's the clear message from oil service companies, oil producers and industry analysts. If this scenario…

    When I travel around the country, one of the questions that comes up often in conversation is, where will the jobs of the future come from? I have a stock answer that I glibly offer: In 1980, the Japanese were beating our brains out. Inflation was well into the double digits, as was unemployment. Finding a job was hard (I know), as one industry after another was being reconfigured and jobs seemed to be disappearing left and right. The answer to the question “Where will the jobs come from?” back then was “I don’t know, but they will.” And they did. Whole new…

That’s an obvious play for him if you know his view, but it’s nevertheless a compelling one this year and one that you should think through, given the specter of deflation about in the world, the firing up of QE in Japan and Europe (which gives folks money to buy … Treasurys), and the safe-haven status of the US…

I mean, does anyone really think that the problem with the Italian economy is that interest rates aren’t low enough? Gosh, if only ECB intervention could get the Italian 10-yr bond…

  • Does Industry Expertise Matter When Selecting an Investment Banker?

    jeffw
    4 Mar 2015 | 2:09 pm
    Sometimes a company owner insists that an investment banker must be an “industry expert” to maximize value. To the contrary, my experience leads me to believe that the real benefits of specific category experience may be small and the potential pitfalls, larger. It may seem counterintuitive, but being narrowly focused in an industry may actually be a detriment to owners seeking to sell their companies for maximum value. Here are some reasons this might be so: An “industry expert” may approach the assignment just like his last deal and not apply innovative thinking to…

    If you are going to sell your business, sell now.  At the ACG Capital Connection in Atlanta two weeks ago the common theme from the Private Equity Groups I spoke to was that multiples are back at 2007 levels. They were lamenting the fact that they didn’t have more portfolio companies ready to sell. Jeff Mortimer, Director of Investment Strategy at BNY Mellon, further reinforced this notion during a presentation I attended today. Jeff said that any private company owner who is looking to exit should sell now. In Jeff’s opinion, the bull market has maybe up to 24 months to run;…

    According to First Research’s energy sector news,  the recent drop in crude oil prices is putting pressure on larger US producers to scale back on fracking operations. Fracking has been a huge boon to US oil production in recent years, but as prices fall, costs remain high, and the return on investment has diminished. ConocoPhillips recently announced it will cut back drilling operations and exploration spending. Shell also plans to reduce spending and cut employment. Smaller oil companies with lower cost structures are continuing to profit from fracking, but margins may be squeezed if…

    Ride-sharing companies Uber and Lyft said Thursday they plan to shut down their operations in San Antonio after the city council passed an ordinance, requiring drivers for transportation companies to pass city-reviewed background checks, which was meant to keep them in the city. More onerous regulations about permits and registration and inspections, as well as a high insurance policy, were initially set to take effect on March 1, but Mayor Ivy Taylor had asked the city council to revisit some of the more tough rules in late February. Uber, however, says even with the revisions its still too…

    For the first time since the financial crisis, the Fed isn’t handing out any Fs. On Thursday, the Federal Reserve released the results of its annual bank stress tests. Of the 31 banks the Fed tested—which included the largest U.S. banks, like Bank of America, Citi, and Wells Fargo—as well as some sizable regional banks and the U.S. divisions of large international banks, all were deemed strong enough to weather a severe economic meltdown without any help from the government. Still, a number of banks, including Goldman Sachs, weren’t far above levels that the Fed…

Over the last 13 TV seasons, staff writers have continued to be mostly white and male, according to an annual report on TV staffing from the the Writers Guild of America. That trend continues in the face of the rise of showrunners like Scandal‘s Shonda Rhimes, Girls‘ Lena Dunham and Transparent‘s Jill Soloway.

  • How the Financial Media and Stock Market Analysts Manipulate You

    Luke Landes
    3 Mar 2015 | 11:10 am
    Best Buy, the big box retailer that most shoppers have abandoned sometime in the last decade and a half in favor of Amazon.com, announced better-than-expected earnings for the last three months of 2014, which includes the all-important holiday season. The announcement sent the financial media into a frenzy, as many had all but dismissed Best Buy, even after positive results from the third quarter of 2014. To exemplify Best Buy’s performance and overall sentiment at that time, the Motley Fool presented this five-year chart, comparing Best Buy’s stock price changes over that…
  • Which Money Script Do You Live By?

    Luke Landes
    2 Mar 2015 | 9:22 am
    Your money script is a story you tell yourself about money. This story, the way you approach your finances, an outlook on a certain segment of your life, can have a significant effect on your behavior. In the growing field of financial psychology, the money script is a key element for clients and patients. Financial psychology is not quite a mainstream field of psychology yet, nor is it an approach that financial advisers normally consider. For clients who work with financial psychologists, however, there is a clear benefit. Addressing stress-related issues from a financial behavior angle has…

Your credit report is like a financial passport. If it’s clean you’ll find the doors to the financial world wide open. Your credit journey will be carefree and wonderful.

  • When It Makes Sense to Work For Free

    Luke Landes
    27 Feb 2015 | 9:37 am
    How much is your time worth? This is a terrible question, and it usually begets a terrible answer. It’s a question that motivational speakers use to encourage people to make sure they’re optimizing their ability to earn an income. There’s nothing wrong with that per se, but it leads to some poor conclusions. For instance, if someone earns a salary that works out to $2,000 a week and works 40 hours a week, the immediate conclusion could be that this worker’s time is worth $50 an hour. It’s a simple way of looking at a financial equation and neglects to incorporate…
  • Should All Financial Advisers Be Held to a Fiduciary Standard?

    Luke Landes
    26 Feb 2015 | 11:46 am
    Over the last year, a friend of mine has been trying to convince me to move my financial assets. I currently have a taxable investment account at Vanguard, and my portfolio consists of a mix that includes a domestic stock index fund, an international stock index fund, and tax-advantaged municipal bond funds. This friend believes that I should be approaching my investments somewhat differently. He is a real estate broker, so he likes to think in terms of leverage. My asset level qualifies me for so-called “private banking” at most retail banks, and one of the things banks like to…

    It was surprising to see that I got a credit limit offer for a credit card that I barely use. As you can see, the bank offered to bump up my limit to $10,000. I probably spent like less than $200 on this card since I got it as I primarily enrolled into it as […] The post Credit Limit Increase For Minor Account Usage appeared first on AL6400 Blog. ...

  • Tax identity thief mistakenly sends fake refund to

    Don't Mess With Taxes
    5 Mar 2015 | 3:26 pm
    Tax filing can be confusing and frustrating for most of us. Even criminals. Take the crook who stole Seth Rouse's personal information and filed fake federal and state tax returns in the legitimate Chicago taxpayer's name. The felonious filer, however, made a big mistake. He didn't change the address to which the fraudulent refund was to be sent. Click the bad refund check image to see the Chicago CBS affiliate's story on the tax identity theft screw-up. So instead of going to the fraudster, the $5,571 check showed up at Rouse's home. The federal refund arrived just a day after Rouse…

  • Measuring Stock Market Sentiment With the Index Put/Call Ratio

    5 Mar 2015 | 3:53 am
    The recent post took a look at the Equity Put/Call Ratio (the ratio of put volume to call volume for all listed options of individual stocks across all exchanges) and what it tells us about the market.  Above we see a five-day moving average of the Index Put/Call Ratio (the ratio of put volume to call volume for all listed options of stock indexes; data from e-Signal).  Interestingly, the two ratios since 2014 have correlated only .25, which means that they share a little over 6% of total variance.  This suggests that the two measures function differently vis a vis…
  • Understanding Options-Based Sentiment in the Stock Market

    4 Mar 2015 | 4:04 am
    I'm currently working on creating better indicators of stock market sentiment.  Above is a five-day moving average of the equity put/call ratio:  the ratio of put volume traded for all listed individual stocks divided by their call volume (no index volume included; raw data from e-Signal).  You can see that spikes in the ratio have corresponded pretty well with buying opportunities in the past year.Of course, the put/call ratio is influenced by price change.  In fact, the correlation between the percentage of stocks trading above their five-day moving averages and the five…
  • Best Practices in Trading: Planning Your Trading Business

    3 Mar 2015 | 2:35 am
    A little while ago, I met with some traders and asked them to bring in everything they had prepared for the new year of trading.  All of them brought a list of goals for the new year.  Most of them brought lists of what they had done right and wrong during the previous year.  None of them laid out concrete plans that detailed how they would take the learning from the previous year and use it to work toward their new year's goals.In other words, they took the time to set goals, but didn't drill down to create plans for achieving those goals.  How likely do you think they…
  • Best Practices in Trading: Organizing Your Trading Morning

    2 Mar 2015 | 2:48 am
    One of the best ways to ensure a sound trading routine during the day is to construct a sound routine during the morning.  How we start our day so often sets the tone for that day.  That means we can either start the day focused or distracted; disciplined or lax; prepared or unprepared.  I have long maintained that one of the best ways of identifying successful traders is to observe what they are doing when they're not trading.Today's best practice comes from Steve Spencer of SMB Trading, and it involves establishing a productive morning routine:  one that prepares both…

    1 Mar 2015 | 3:54 am
    *  Note that the number of NYSE stocks closing above their upper Bollinger Bands vs. below their lower bands has stayed largely positive since the mid January lows.  (Raw data from StockCharts).  Typically rallies are imperiled not just when we see a reduction in strength (fewer shares closing above their upper bands), but when we see emerging leaders to the downside displaying actual weakness (closing below their lower bands).  To this point, we've seen less strength, but not outright weakness.  This is one important reason why I view divergences as necessary for…

  • Understanding Deflation, Negative Yields And Gold

    Roger Nusbaum
    5 Mar 2015 | 5:37 am
    My latest for Alpha Baskets looks at the impact of deflation on gold and other markets. From the post; We see this in the shockingly low bond yields in Europe. The ten year yields for sovereign debt from all of the PIIGS countries (remember that term?) is lower than the US Ten Year Treasury Note and has been for quite a while. Five year sovereign debt in Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and Finland are all negative. Non euro countries like Denmark, Sweden and Switzerland also have negative yields at various points on their respective curves. Please click through to read the entire post.
  • The Benefits Of Tiny Withdrawal Rates

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:51 am
    My latest post at Alpha Baskets explores the practical benefit from tiny living, namely financial flexibility and potentially less investment risk from living below your means. From the post; The role that luck plays here cannot be minimized and by luck I mean the timing of when to start your idea of retirement. The person who retired on December 31st 2006 needing 4.5% was likely forced to make some very uncomfortable decisions (while everyone remembers what happened in 2008, the market was flat in 2007 so in this scenario they took their 4.5%, got little to no growth and then the market…

    This week’s market update is posted at Alpha Baskets and includes the following; While the Fed is still guiding to mid 2015-ish for raising rates, there are plenty of pundits who are skeptical due to GDP growth that has generally lagged growth in previous recoveries and the economy’s inability to sustain the 2% inflation target. The fourth quarter GDP was revised last week down to 2.2% supports the idea of the Fed delaying action. Please click through to read the entire update.

  • Hedge Funds on the Comeback?

    Roger Nusbaum
    26 Feb 2015 | 2:27 pm
    My latest for Alpha Baskets considers an argument for why hedge funds could make a comeback. My interest is more along the lines looking at various diversifiers which includes hedge fund replicators available in ETPs. From the post; Long/short is obviously just one strategy in the hedge fund realm and clearly there is no way to know what future results will be but the return and volatility numbers reported in the chart would seem to say that this space should be investigated further if you have not been using some form of hedge fund replication as part of your strategy for diversifying your…

  • Bankruptcy Filings Down Again 10.1% in February 2015

    Bob Lawless
    5 Mar 2015 | 9:30 am
    Thanks to Epiq Systems, the latest monthly bankruptcy figures are out, and they show a 10.1% year-over-year decline. We now have had 52 straight months of year-over-year declines in the U.S. bankruptcy filing rate. The graph to the right shows the trend in year-over-year changes. There was a daily average of 3,422 bankruptcy filings in February, compared to 3,804 from the previous year. Total February bankruptcy filings were just over 65,000. (Daily averages are computed based on business days.) I forecasted approximately 800,000 bankruptcy filings for the 2015 calendar year, and the first…
  • Credit Slips Bloggers' Amicus Briefs in Caulkett

    Bob Lawless
    5 Mar 2015 | 8:00 am
    With my attention drawn to other matters, my personal blogging has been light for the past month. One of the things that had my attention was the Caulkett case currently pending before the Supreme Court. The issue in Caulkett is whether a wholly underwater second mortgage can be avoided in a chapter 7 bankruptcy. Without any value to reach, a wholly underwater second would not seem to be an allowed secured claim within the meaning of section 506. Along with fellow Credit Slips blogger, John Pottow, and Professor Bruce Markell, I filed an amicus brief in Caulkett supporting the…
  • Servicing Matters

    Katie Porter
    3 Mar 2015 | 4:12 pm
    I am so pleased to offer the following post by Carolina Reid, a premier housing researcher at UC Berkeley, about her excellent study of how mortgage servicers matter in creating home-saving opportunities. Welcome Carolina to Credit Slips. By now we’re all familiar with a plethora of Wall Street financial acronyms, from ABSs to CDOs and CDSs. But what about MSRs (mortgage servicing rights)?  Until a year ago, I had never heard of MSRs, so I was surprised to find out that the rights to collect my mortgage payment are traded on Wall Street, much in the same way mortgage backed securities are…
  • Sheep, Goats, and Government Debts - Happy Lunar New Year, 1937 Edition

    Anna Gelpern
    1 Mar 2015 | 1:03 am
    Like many others, I have been struggling to figure out whether the new lunar year is a Sheep or a Goat. I found the answer last week in the archives of the League of Nations Committee for the Study of International Loan Contracts, which spent four years from 1935 to 1939 investigating why sovereign debt was so screwed up, and what to do about it. During these four years, committee notables and their experts managed to foresee just about every 21st century sovereign debt controversy, from pari passu and feckless trustees to the epic and tiresome battle between contractual and…

There is a fundamental tension in financial institution resolution between minimizing disruptive spillovers from firm failure and avoiding the moral hazard and taxpayer expense of government picking…

  • Better to Fail in Your Small Business Than Make the Safe Play

    Meryl Evans

    This post’s title sounds like a quote from one of those inspiring posters with a stunning photo and an inspirational quote. It’s true that it’s better to flop than to avoid something or play it safe in fear of failure. Do this, and it’ll be tough to grow your business. “I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying.” – Michael Jordan It’d be tough for you to find someone who doesn’t speak highly of Michael Jordan’s basketball career. Yet, he missed more than 9,000 shots, lost almost 300 games and failed to take the game winning shot…

    I bought a product at a store that I visit about once a year. The store is pricey, but has unique products that I can’t find anywhere else. It’s not far, but it’s not as close as its competitors. While there, I always pick up pop snacks. They’re tasty and you get a big bang for the munch in a single pop. On this visit, I brought home a few flavors. All of them were their tasty, crunchy selves except one. Every bite lacked crunch as if it was past its sell-by date. (It wasn’t.) And both bags of the same flavor had the problem. Considering all the other flavors were good and it was…
  • 7 Tips to Stop Late Payments from Clients

    Meryl Evans
    26 Feb 2015 | 10:01 am
    Some clients pay within days of submitting an invoice. Others pay near the end of the 30 days. Both types have been in business for years and continue going strong. Still, those who put off payment until right before the standard 30-day deadline have a slight edge. They keep the money longer. Occasionally, a client or two would pay late. Fortunately, some businesses have enough cushion that they aren’t affected but not everyone is in the same boat. It hurts the business when they get paid late. And late payments are one of the biggest causes of B2B small business owners’ headaches.

Many considered Beta’s technology superior to VHS’s. Yet Beta flopped and VHS soared until DVDs caught on. Beta failed because customers wanted an affordable option. VHS cost several hundred dollars less than Betamax. It takes more than a great product or service to win over the market. Marketing plays a role. Customer needs play a role. A well-written business plan plays a role. A business plan describes your company’s future in three…
  • How to Balance Your Cash Flow and Make Payments

    Meryl Evans
    18 Feb 2015 | 7:16 am
    Business-to-business companies typically give clients 30 days to pay for their products or services. These B2B companies also need to pay their vendors within the same timeframe. And it’s standard business practice to wait until the end of the 30 days before making a payment. It’s like having an interest-free loan for 30 days as you keep cash longer in your bank account. However, late payments can cause the company’s cash flow to snowball out of control jeopardizing other areas of the business and its relationships with vendors. (There’s a difference between being nice by paying…

  • Congress Facing Huge Pressure To Lift Oil Export Ban

    5 Mar 2015 | 3:20 pm
    A lobbying blitz is underway to scrap the decades old ban on crude oil exports from the United States. Originally implemented during price spikes in the 1970’s, oil exports from the U.S. have been legally blocked, save for exemptions given to exports to Canada. That was largely a nonissue for several decades as the U.S. was a massive importer of oil, and there wasn’t much of an opportunity for domestic drillers to export crude. That all changed in the last few years with a flood of new production. Calls for lifting the ban on exports…Read more...

My friend was convinced it was impossible to understand how building credit works. “Shouldn’t paying off my debt mean I look better to lenders?” He grumbled. Yes and no. Truth be told, there’s more to credit reports and credit scores than simply showing an ability to pay your debts on time. Normal folks with good paying jobs and responsible financial habits are…

Many firms I visit have a “tax bullpen” and an “audit bullpen”. I don’t have a big problem with this arrangement. Younger, newer accountants need to talk to each other as they learn the ropes.

    Posted 9:40 AM ET - The one-day rally to new highs did not last. Stocks retreated yesterday and they gave back all of the gains from Monday. I suspected this could happen and that's why I took profits on my call positions last Friday. The price action has been lackluster. The Dow Jones and S&P 500 barely established new all-time highs before stalling out. Trading ranges are compressed and the market can't rally on good news (Greece, ECB, FOMC minutes and the PBOC rate cut). Bullish sentiment is very high and speculators need to get flushed out.

News outlet begin reporting about possible reasons: Price war from OPEC Too much supply in the form of shale oil from US Weak demand A common theme I heard from fellow traders is “it is now low enough to buy”. They said it at $80, and they said it again at $60. And again at $50 and the beginning of the year when the price is at $40s. However, if we were to look at the chart and see how crude oil break down in June, what justification do we have…

I suppose the gentle antitrust treatment leads physicians to believe that they can form a messenger model IPA, enter into contracts as a group, and be left alone by the regulators.  That is largely true. The reason that regulators tend to let these entities alone is that, if done correctly, they are completely toothless. If your…

As of October 2016, small pension pots of less than £10,000 can be moved from company to company once a person changes job. The idea is to help ease the problem of lost pension pots and enable workers to easily keep a track of their retirement savings.     To begin with the system will work on a voluntary basis and it will be the workers responsibility to arrange for the pension pot to be transferred, but in the future it will be done automatically…

    Technical Outlook (SPX): Hard intra day sell-off yesterday that saw price stabilize off of the 20-day moving average and dip buyers jump in to rally off the lows and erase 1/2 the days gains.  Despite the market being down 8 out of the last 11 and 5 out of the last 6 days, SPX is only about 1% off of the all-time highs.  If the market goes down today, look for support at 2088.

Therefore, we can learn something about the market’s tolerance for risk by monitoring the ratio of stocks to bonds.

    Business travel has long been seen as a necessary but burdensome task. We associate it with long security lines. endless meetings, and weary travelers – but it doesn’t have to be that way. Technology has transformed nearly every aspect of taking a trip, from driving across the country to taking a red-eye flight. The way we travel is changing for the better, and business trips are no exception. It’s not limited to only technology that’s making travel easier. Decision makers within organizations are beginning to see the value of a more relaxed business trip – and they’re developing…

    In today’s day and age, it’s nearly impossible to get by without a credit card. Whether you have one for just emergencies, or you are a frequent card user, there are sneaky hidden fees that can bite you if you’re not paying attention. To avoid getting charged more than you should, or even getting charged to use your own money, below is a quick guide to the top five ways to avoid sneaky credit card charges. 1.

  • How To Change Bad Financial Habits

    Everybody has habits. There are two kinds of habits: good habits, and bad ones. You need to build up your good habits, or else, your bad habits will take you to the poor house. Many people don’’t manage to save money or build up assets because they simply have bad habits. They are hard workers, they try to save, they love their families, they’re responsible people; but in the end, they have little to show for their efforts because of their bad financial habits. People dig themselves into a hole financially because of the things they do on impulse, and it seems that bad financial…
  • Top 3 Ways Credit Cards Make People Happy

    Edwin C
    17 Sep 2014 | 11:28 pm
    It’s very easy to figure out the ways credit cards make people unhappy. Being in debt and having bad credit being two of those reasons. It’s easy to go crazy when you have a mounting of debt facing you. It’s easy to feel trapped, when all the money that you earn during the month goes to rent, food and credit cards with nothing left over for you to save or have fun with. With that said, having credit cards can also make you happy. The truth is that the credit card is really just a tool. If you use this tool the right way, it will not only do certain jobs for you, but it can also make you…

    If you use the internet with any frequency, you have probably seen those banner ads or even those large display ads that offer free credit scores. Many are quite tricky wherein they ask a poll and when you fill it out; it leads you to credit score websites. Many of these websites offer so called free credit scores. The bad news is that they are not free. All of these free credit scores sites are not free. How could these sites operate if they didn’t charge a penny?

  • You Are Not Defined By Your Credit Score

    7 Aug 2014 | 12:09 am
    There are many things that define a person. It all depends on what you choose to define you. Some people choose to be defined by their past experiences while others, by their goals and dreams. In any case, you need to pick a personal definition that does not lie in the hands of other people. In other words, you need to pick something that you can control. Sadly, too many people think that their low credit score define them. As a result, they feel a lot of guilt and shame and end up not doing things that they should be doing. They are prevented from trying things that they should be trying.

    Current Investing Environment Positive for Stocks, but for How Long? It’s really tough to quantify this stock market. Even with mediocre domestic and international economic news and lackluster corporate news, we’re now at NASDAQ 5,000 again. Clearly, the fundamental backdrop remains mildly positive for equities, with continued low interest rates and a global central banking system set on helping capital markets any way they can.

    Michael Lombardi, MBA
    4 Mar 2015 | 3:35 am
    Just as the stock market moving higher on historically high valuations is mind-boggling, suppressed gold prices aren’t making much sense either. Demand for gold is increasing, while supply is contracting—a perfect recipe for higher gold prices. But despite the demand/supply equations that all things on earth are priced by, gold prices remain flat. Manipulation? Certainly looks like it at times. But understand this: markets can be manipulated for only so long. Eventually, the fundamentals are what dictate the prices and it will be no different withThe post Why Gold Demand and Supply…

After its central bank printed four trillion in new dollars, after the government posted record annual deficits that pushed the national debt past $18.0 trillion, after other world central banks started reducing their exposure to the greenback as a reserve currency, the consensus was the U.S. dollar would fall in value.

      More and more people are choosing to opt for the choice of building their own home instead of going down the conventional route of purchasing a renovation project or even a newly built property. As with the majority of home or property purchases many people require some degree of financial aid to assist them when having to pay for their property. Most self-build projects, similar to the ready built counterpart, require a mortgage to fund the building and development. Due to the complex differences between the two options, when undertaking a self-build, a self-build specific mortgage is…

Woolwich are actually offering a 2.99% 10 year fixed rate which is the cheapest ever fixed rate to date. It is quite difficult to see exactly where interest rates are going to go in the future but a fixed rate below 3% is a very good deal indeed. To qualify for this deal you will have to have 40% equity or deposit. You would also have to be confident that you are going to remain in your property for 10…

    Spencer Tierney
    25 Feb 2015 | 2:10 pm
    Anyone can save for retirement, not just those who have access to a 401(k) plan at work. An individual retirement arrangement, or IRA account, is a good way to build up a fund and get tax advantages at the same time. If you’re self-employed or otherwise don’t have a 401(k) option, an IRA can serve you well. How IRAs work There are two main types of IRAs — traditional and Roth IRAs — and they work a little differently. Although both rely on personal contributions and can be opened at banks and most brokerages, the tax treatment for each differs. Traditional IRA: Like a 401(k),…

EBay’s board came to this conclusion in September when it announced that the giant marketplace and PayPal would split by the middle of 2015. Sell. Spinoff. Execute a carve-out.

    Last week, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau proposed a temporary suspension to the requirement that credit card issuers submit their consumer agreements so they can be posted on the CFPB website for public access. The CFPB wants to create a more simplistic and faster electronic submission method that will make the process easier for both the Bureau and the credit card companies.

  • How Much Is My House Worth?

    admin
    2 Mar 2015 | 6:24 am
    The value of your home depends on a number of factors, so there is no single answer for a particular home type. For example, a three-bedroom detached house could cost $1 million in one neighborhood, and $100,000 in another. In fact, location is perhaps the single most important factor in determining the value of your home, although this can be further broken down into other factors such as the amount of crime in the area, availability of good schools, nearby shopping and other things.

    If you are like most people, it feels good not to have any debt. That’s why it’s so attractive to pay off your car loan – this is usually the largest debt but anyone has, except for their mortgage. However, before you do this, there are a number of things that you need to take into consideration. While paying off your car loan may make sense, you have to look at the numbers and your personal circumstances in order to make the right decision.

On the other hand, there is no point in spending so much that you start your marriage off deep in debt. What people actually spend There are lots of so-called guidelines out there on how much to spend on a ring. Some people claim that you should spend one month’s salary, while others claim you should spend as much as three. To put this in context, the truth is that the average man spends a little over $5,200 on an…
  • What Happens To My IRA If I Die Before I Retire?

    The reason that people contribute to an IRA is that they want to have money available when they retire. This money isn’t just for their own needs – it’s also there to take care of their loved ones, and particularly their spouse. However, if you die before you retire, what happens to all the money that you have accumulated in your retirement account? Does it go away, or can you make sure that your family is taken care of?

    Often, when people rent a property rather than owning their home, they don’t think that they need any insurance. However, while your landlord will insure the building itself, the contents of your rented home are not covered. While you may think that the value of your belongings is negligible, you would be surprised how much they are worth. Don’t just think about how much you could sell your belongings for – instead, think about how much it would cost you to replace them. Renters insurance is not expensive The amount that you will pay for renter’s insurance depends on the amount that…

  • Will Section 529A ABLE Accounts Replace The Need For Disabled Beneficiary Special Needs Trusts?

    Michael Kitces
    4 Mar 2015 | 4:01 am
    Planning for special needs beneficiaries is highly complex, a mixture of making challenging care decisions and managing limited resources. Many families will try to save assets on behalf of a special needs beneficiary to provide further support, but if not coordinated properly, can actually disqualify the beneficiary from Federal and state aid programs, including SSI and Medicaid. The primary solution – establishing a (third-party) supplemental special needs trust – can help preserve the beneficiary’s eligibility for aid programs, but itself has a non-trivial cost to create and…
  • How I Finally Learned To Delegate By Creating Video Tutorials With Screencasting Software

    Michael Kitces

    As any advisory business grows, eventually the work that was “always” done by the founder has to be delegated, as there’s just not enough time in the day to do everything. Yet speaking from personal experience, delegating can be difficult, as it often feels like it takes even more time to show someone how to do a task and oversee it, than it takes to just do it oneself! For me, the “breakthrough” in how to delegate effectively came from using screencasting software – tools that record what’s happening on your computer screen, paired with the audio of you talking while you’re…

  • The Problem With Naming A Trust As The Beneficiary Of An Annuity, And Using A Beneficiary Designation With Restricted Payout Form As An Alternative

    Michael Kitces
    25 Feb 2015 | 4:01 am
    Retirement accounts and annuities used as accumulation vehicles can create significant tax-deferred account balances over time, with the caveat that eventually the tax bill must still come due. If the accounts are liquidated during life, the account owner faces the tax consequences; if the accounts are held until death, the tax liability falls to the beneficiaries instead. To help ameliorate the potential for a large liquidation to thrust the beneficiary into higher tax brackets after the death of the owner, Congress created the “stretch” rules for retirement accounts and annuities that…

Rate reductions can be used to fuel economic growth while conversely rate rises can be used to slow down an overheating economy. The…

  • Have a Small Business Idea? Here’s Some Considerations

    Tammy Hawk-Bridges
    19 Feb 2015 | 6:38 am
    One of the worst things you can do? Create a business with absolutely no foundation other than it seems like a cool idea. When I left corporate America and entered into the world of entrepreneurship I thought that being a smart business woman gave me a leg up. Boy, was I stupid! I had a very cool idea, all my friends and family said so! But I did no research on my market. I didn’t know who my buyer was, and what’s worse I couldn’t reach enough of them to support my business. So guess what? 13 months, tons of lost time, tons of lost money, lots of tears later – big…
  • Marketing is a Verb – That Means Action

    Tammy Hawk-Bridges
    11 Feb 2015 | 7:05 pm
    If you want to grow your reach and make more money in your business the process by which you make that happen is called marketing. 1 million new micro businesses start up every year (A micro business is made up of 1 or 2 people.). 80% of those 1 million businesses won’t break 50K in annual revenue (Notice I didn’t say profit- I said revenue). Why? There are lots of reasons but in many cases marketing is the missing piece. They’re too small minded about their business. (Sorry, I’m not trying to be mean here, just honest :-).) Small Mind = Small Profits Most people will get…

    You know what’s really cool about what I do? I get to tell people how to make more money. If they have a valid business idea, I can tell them how to build a process to bridge the gaps and be more profitable. Given the right person that’s willing to roll up their sleeves and get really serious, I can succeed every time. However, one of the things I learned first as a sales trainer back in my corporate days that still holds true today in my life as an entrepreneur mentor is that people who are messy and unorganized will struggle. You cannot build profitability in chaos. When I was a…

After my first business failed and I lost a ton of money I learned the error of my ways before going into business number two. I made two major mistakes that caused my demise: I didn’t understand marketing. I didn’t have a strategy or plan. I just worked hard all day long hustling with no purpose.

    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.

  • This Week’s NFP a Catalyst for Fed Rate Increase?

    Jay and Julie Hawk
    5 Mar 2015 | 4:07 am
    The build up to this Friday’s US Non-Farm Payrolls has already begun to impact the currency market. On Monday, data showed a 0.2% decline in US personal pending in January, following a 0.3% decline in December. Analysts attributed the data to falling gasoline prices. That sentiment was highlighted by the Commerce Department, which said that with the exclusion of falling energy prices, real consumer spending actually went up by 0.3% in January, with groceries, electricity, healthcare and insurance all recording increases. Wednesday’s ADP Non-Farm Employment Change number showed an…
  • Oil Price Drops after Surprise Inventory Buildup

    PrimePair
    5 Mar 2015 | 12:56 am
    Volatility in the oil markets continues, as the latest oil inventory report from the EIA showed a massive 10.303M barrels increase from the previous week. This was far above most estimates where the consensus was for stockpiles to increase by around 4M barrels on the week. Distillates, which crucially include heating oil, fell but gasoline supplies rose. Crude stocks at the Cushing plant also rose 536k barrels. The price of oil had already started to slip prior to the report as whisper numbers circulated leading many traders to position for a bearish number. US crude futures dipped to $49.57…

    USD/CAD remains mired within a triangular consolidation pattern, as shown in purple on the daily chart below.

    The coming days will bring quite a few important economic data releases from Canada, including the overnight interest rate decision, Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) and the national trade balance figure. Moreover, Statistics Canada released the month-over-month GDP yesterday, which came in at a better than expected 0.3%, against a previously forecasted 0.2%. Under the current global economic climate of ever looming deflation worries and the dangerous precedents of negative interest rates, the Canadian economy has performed rather well. This performance was underlined by the healthy 1%…

    PrimePair
    4 Mar 2015 | 1:08 am
    The prospect of a further rate cut by the Bank of Canada looks less certain following the release of the latest GDP report. The Canadian economy grew at an annual rate of 2.4% in the final three months of the year. Third quarter growth was also revised upwards to 3.2%. However, the report also showed that oil linked exports weakened sharply in the final quarter. There were also signs of rapid inventory buildup, which added to the improved growth number. Markets put a bullish spin on the data. The loonie initially recovered some ground against the US dollar. USD/CAD dropped to 1.2431 reaching…

    Yes, oil prices are down. Yes, it is one of the worst times to be in the oil business. Yes, oil prices might slide even lower. Yes, even Warren Buffett reduced his stake in this very  company. But, oil prices are NOT bound to be down forever. But, the worst time for the oil business provides many oil companies' stocks at bargain prices. But, short term decreases in oil prices are meaningless for a long-term investment. But, Warren Buffett admitted that he bought into oil at the wrong time. The question any investor should be asking is: When is the right time to get into oil? But the…

This is why leverage provides a great albeit risky opportunity to maximize your profits even with a small capital.Margin increases your risks as well as rewards, think of it like gambling with money you borrowed from the bank. If you win you will have a profit basically from thin air, if you lose you have to pay the bank (or loan shark) with interest and hopefully not with a limb.That is why the Indie Investor does not recommend margin investing for…

    23 Feb 2015 | 11:12 am
    Foreign Exchange Outlook Fundamental Analysis  The global price downgrade means a sharp widening of economic performances between oil producing and non-producing provinces of Canada. The flipside of this would mean a benefit to resource based economies as their cost of production is reduced. Accordingly there has been a downward revision to Canadian real GDP growth rate which now is expected to crawl forward at a rate of 0.5%. Forecast for 2016 is growth acceleration of 1.8%. Reviewing some provincial economic activity Alberta, a major-oil producing state, is expected to grind to a halt.

    From a contrarian point of view the bigger picture for the sterling foreign exchange rate points to a bearish picture.  Fundamental analysis of this currency appears bullish, and if we were to assume that price is discounting market information then investors should formulate their forex trading strategies in a way that they are not caught by surprise when the sterling starts charting a corrective course in the intermediate term. Because UK is not part of the Eurozone, it has managed to escape restrictive monetary policies and the economy is steadily growing and unemployment is falling. …

    In light of declining commodity prices and the possibility of rising unemployment, the decision of Reserves Bank of Australia to cut interest rates from 2.5% to 2.25% had taken some by surprise.  Most notable economists had predicted a cut, if at all, no earlier than in the latter part of 2015.  So this preemption which comes at the backdrop of worsening business confidence during end of 2014, as the mining sector reported the worst trend in business confidence level, points to over- caution.  But then, senior economists are giving credence to National Australian Bank judgment call…

Lack of structural cohesion with divergent outlooks on what policy direction to be taken has played a fair share in this phenomenon. Germany, the stalwart of Eurozone, with a high account surplus, has had the potential to stimulate the economy via investment in physical infrastructure but there has been a lack of coherent policy direction emerging from its leadership.
