    From economists at Nomura: US Q1 GDP: It will likely show that final sales barely grew, but April data should be better.Adverse weather conditions, West Coast port disruptions, the stronger dollar and the decline in crude oil prices all likely hurt economic activity in Q1 2015. Business investment slowed considerably as oil and gas exploration projects halted abruptly and precipitously on lower crude oil prices while manufacturing activity was additionally hurt by the stronger dollar. Also, we believe that lower gasoline prices failed to spur consumer activity as it appears that households…

  • How does Colorado's unemployment rate stack up against the rest of America? (Interactive graphic)

    Colorado's unemployment rate stands at 4.2 percent, with the state losing 3,900 jobs last month but still faring far better than it did in the same month last year. But although the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment reported jobs declining by 3,900, a separate poll of state households found that overall employment, including self-employed and farm workers not included in the employer survey, rose by 2,400 last month. Either way, Colorado's not doing too shabby. But how does it stack up…

    Analysts have mixed views on the remainder of Landstar System Inc.'s year (Nasdaq: LSTR), after the company posted a lackluster first quarter due to an accident that led to a one-time $4.5 million expense for the Jacksonville company. Experts agree that had the settlement not hit the company so hard — costing Landstar 6 cents per share — the logistics firm would have hit its guidance range of 71 cents to 76 cents, rather than landing at 67 cents for the first quarter. However, the state of…

Freddie Mac’s (OTC: FMCC) weekly rate report says a 30-year fix averaged 3.65 percent in the week ending April 23, down from 3.67 percent last week. A year ago, 30-year rates averaged 4.33 percent. A 15-year fix fell to 2.92 percent this week. A one-year adjustable-rate mortgage fell to an average of 2.44 percent. Low rates are bringing out…
  • Texas job numbers tank as oil price, rig counts fall

    As oil prices and rig counts go, so go the job numbers in Texas. That’s clear from the chart with my article in this week’s print edition in the Dallas Business Journal. Texas in March ended its impressive 53-month streak of positive job creation, and much of that had to do with the oil price collapse and rig count decline. The number of U.S. oil rigs in use fell by 26 to 734 for the week ending April 17, according to data from oil-driller Baker Hughes. That was is the lowest rig count total…

    After the stock market closed on Friday, my portfolio was at an all-time high. That was likely also the case for a lot of investors living in the United States who are similar to me: earning income, investing in the stock market with a buy-and-hold strategy for the future, and leaving money invested during the stickier economic times. Continuing to invest in the stock market throughout the recent recession was an essential part of long-term success with investing. Not all investors had this luxury, as the recession hit hard.

    Banks in the United States are undergoing a major transformation in credit card technology, a process similar to the one Europe successfully completed several years ago. Despite the technological advances in mobile payment that have already rendered plastic cards obsolete, the financial industry wants to replace every magnetic stripe credit card in every wallet.

  • Life Is and Isn’t About the Money

    Accumulating money is not a real goal for anyone’s life. Growing wealth is not the point. People don’t work hard because they want to see their bank balance grow; those of us who track our finances and chart our net worth over time aren’t trying to compete in some financial competition. I imagine there are individuals who do have an approach to money wherein the increase of the bank balance is the ultimate goal. But this approach misses the point. Perhaps these savers and earners haven’t given enough thought to why they want to grow their wealth, other than believing…
  • The IRS Tax Scam and What Happens When You Owe Taxes

    Luke Landes
    17 Mar 2015 | 8:11 am
    For a few years, a ring of criminals believed by the U.S. government to be based in India have been involved in a pervasive tax scam. Callers impersonate IRS officials, connect with American taxpayers, and convince many that they have an outstanding bill for tax payments. The scam has been so pervasive that it has generated more than $15 million from panicked taxpayers. CNN offers a story from a recent victim of the scam: One of those victims was former NFL player Frank Garcia, who is now a sports radio host in Charlotte, North Carolina. When he got the call, it sounded so authentic, he left…

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

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

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

    Here in Texas, especially the western part of the state where I grew up and communities are many miles apart, you get used to driving. So when roads start deteriorating, motorists tend to get irritated. The rage over road conditions hit a new high when some of Texas' paved roads were being left to return to gravel before the citizenry voted last November to direct some of the state's reserve "rainy day" money to transportation projects. On a more local level, counties and cities still appropriate some funds for relatively rocky roads. My particular subdivision street, for example,…

  • Questioning Strong and Weak Markets

    25 Apr 2015 | 3:47 am
    One of the best ways to generate fresh ideas is to question accepted wisdom.  What is often assumed among traders and market writers is just not the case.Technical indicators are generally regarded as measures of market strength and weakness.  When price action has been strong over a lookback period, the technical indicator is viewed as bullish and vice versa.  At extreme values, the indicator may be regarded as an "overbought" or "oversold" measure.  Since the middle of last year, I have been tracking the buy and sell signals for all NYSE stocks for several technical…

    Here is something I watch closely while trading.  The blue line is the SPY ETF; the red line takes the SPY volume for each five-minute period and expresses that relative to the average SPY volume at that same five-minute period (30-day lookback).  The ratio is expressed in standard deviation units.  When the ratio is above 1.0, we're seeing above average flows come into the market for that five-minute segment.  When the ratio is below 1.0, we're seeing below average volume participating in that period.Because volume correlates highly with volatility, this ratio gives a…

Obviously Mexico is taking advantage of the low yield environment, for some context the yield on ten year paper denominated in pesos is 3.27%. The risk to Mexico here is that the euro gets stronger against the peso which would make the debt more expensive to repay. Economist Mike Shedlock notes that the current EURMXP rate is around 16 (16 pesos to buy a euro) but that it has been as low as 22 in recent years. A trip back toward 22 could…

    Thanks to the folks who run Credit Slips for the opportunity to post.  I hope to be back in a few months with musings about the following:  Since the CFPB has very limited authority over auto finance, and since securitization of consumer auto loans is back with a vengeance and since low and moderate income folks desperately need used cars, we need to watch carefully this first post-crash subprime challenge.  Do preference recoveries redirect dollars in accordance with the goal of preference avoidance? With help from Ronald Mann I hope to do a small empirical study that others might…
  • Secured Credit, Churches, and Reorganization

    Pamela Foohey
    20 Apr 2015 | 1:04 pm
    Chapter 11's ability to empower true reorganization has received much criticism of late in light of an increasingly held assumption that most Chapter 11 cases end in a 363 sale of the debtor's assets. Around this time last year, the American Bankruptcy Institute and the University of Illinois College of Law co-hosted a symposium dedicated to discussing secured creditors’ rights and role in modern Chapter 11. Papers from the symposium (including by Slips contributors) very recently became available here. I was lucky enough to moderate a couple of the symposium panels. As I was…
  • A Gunmaker Gets Aggressive

    20 Apr 2015 | 11:01 am
    Over at Dealb%k, I have a new column up about Colt's rather aggressive dual-track exchange offer and prepack. In short, it involves very little creditor input. Perhaps part of a larger trend of aggressive use of chapter 11 by private equity backed debtors? And no, I have no idea if Robert Culp is holding a Colt firearm that that picture ... but he looks kind of cool, doesn't he?
  • An Arbitration Between Russia and Ukraine?

    Mark Weidemaier
    20 Apr 2015 | 7:28 am
    Russia has threatened to take Ukraine to arbitration unless the country pays its $3 billion bond in full. As Anna notes, the bond gives the holder the option to sue in English court or to arbitrate under the rules of the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA). The LCIA is a preeminent international arbitration institution, but the choice of arbitration over litigation is an unusual one in this context. Non-consumer lenders typically prefer litigation to arbitration. As I've shown elsewhere, sovereign lenders share this preference. Arbitration clauses rarely appear in…

    With all the earnings related surges in after hours Thursday night it was not difficult to predict Friday would be a solid day for the NASDAQ - and it was, as the index added 0.71% to go along with a more modest day on the S&P 500, up 0.23%. The NASDAQ gapped up at the open and stayed steady all day. Middling economic news was ignored; durable goods, ex-transportation, fell 0.2 percent,... Read the full article at StockTradingToGo.com

Today was another such day as a slight negative open was bought and the S&P 500 finished up 0.24% and the NASDAQ 0.41%.

    When small business owners are at their desk, they often feel like they don’t spend enough time on revenue-producing activities. They take care of payroll, track down late paying clients, balance the books and check email frequently. They’d rather spend more time connecting with clients, bringing in new clients and finding ways to grow business. We all have the same amount of time in a day. It’s enough to get work done, get rest and do something away from work to clear out the brain’s cobwebs. Here are five time management tips that you can do right away to gain more time doing the…

    Your small business could have all the clients it wants and be profitable. Yet without cash-on-hand, things could fall apart in an instant. Profits don’t guarantee you’ll always have cash to pay employees, purchase supplies and take care of your vendors. The good news is that you can control your finances to ensure cash is always available. It begins with understanding how cash goes in and out of your company. Cash flow is the cash you have available after paying all expenses. A business with negative cash flow pays more than it brings in. Any cash left over at the end of the month…

  • Get a Small Business Loan or Working Capital Without a Big Bank

    Meryl Evans
    26 Mar 2015 | 7:17 am
    Many small businesses avoid seeking loans, but not for the reasons you think. According to a Sageworks survey, business owners opt not to pursue small business loans because they don’t want to take on debt (62 percent) or think they won’t get approved (24 percent). Data from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) shows that small business lending — for loans less than $1 million — has dropped between 2008 and 2012. It has yet to see improvement since. In February 2015, Biz2Credit Small Business Lending Index posted the following lending approval rates: Big banks: 21 percent.

  • Monticello and Slavery: Is this Historical Site Family-Friendly?

    18 Mar 2015 | 6:57 am
    With spring break and summer vacation season upon us, I always recommend that parents place an historical site in the itinerary. It could be a quick pull-over at the geographical center of the continental United States where you get a quick family photo, or it can be a week in Gettysburg to take a deep dive into Civil War history. If you plan ahead, you can listen to audio books in the family car on the theme of your vacation. They’re a great way to get the kids excited about what they’re about to experience and they beat the heck out of one more replay of a kid movie soundtrack…

    Exxon Mobil Corp.’s agreement in federal court to pay more than $5 million over its 2013 pipeline spill in Mayflower, Ark., isn’t enough for the town’s residents, nor does it satisfy state fish and game officials.The energy giant agreed April 22 in a US District Court in Little Rock to pay $5.07 million to settle claims that it violated state environmental laws as well as the federal Clean Water Act on March 29, 2013, when its Pegasus pipeline broke open about 25 miles north of Little Rock, spilling more than 3,000 barrels of…

    Nothing in the past two weeks has changed my outlook on oil and oil stocks in that I believe this 'bust' cycle which started in August of 2014 still has a long way to go.  But various financial factors are beginning to pick at the outskirts of the numbers and begging us to reevaluate some targets as we position ourselves for the next great oil boom. We've isolated several financial factors, having little to do with fundamental oil, that are affecting the current price of oil, especially the dollar which has looked somewhat toppy of late:…
  • AGL Resources (GAS) is A Risk Worth Taking

    24 Apr 2015 | 2:05 pm
    When the price of oil was in freefall it understandably captured a lot of attention. The same fate befalling natural gas, however, was of less interest to most media outlets. In many ways that is understandable; the price of natural gas has a much less direct effect on the vast majority of consumers than that of oil, so stories about it don’t drive ratings. The fact is, though, that the decline in natural gas prices was, if anything, more spectacular.When oil was in full decline from September to December of last year natural gas prices held…

    Introduction The tentative framework deal reached between Iran and the P5+1 nations over its nuclear program has raised the prospects of a broader thaw in relations. If Iran can be accepted back into the international community, the harsh sanctions on Iran’s economy could be lifted. That could lead to an opening up of Iran’s oil sector. While that won’t mean a return to the pre-revolution days before 1979, it could result in extraordinary opportunities for the few international oil companies willing to brave the political risk.…

    If you have an emergency requirement for cash but you have bad credit, then you may find yourself turning to auto title loans. Before you decide to do this, however, you should understand just what these loans are and how you can get the most out of them. How Do Auto Title Loans Work? If you own a car outright, you can use the title deed as collateral. How much you will get for it depends on the vehicle’s value. Usually, you will be able to borrow no more than 50% of that value. In most cases, you must own the vehicle outright. If there is still a little bit of finance outstanding on it,…

The best most of us can do is look at the signs as they appear. The obvious signs of an approaching Bear market are huge sell-offs among wide baskets of stocks, such as those in the Dow, Nasdaq, and the S&P 500 indexes. However, a sell-off by itself does not make a Bear market, A prime example is the infamous 1987 Crash in which stock prices steadily rose in the months following the crash.

  • How can directors address reputational risks?

    Elizabeth Judd
    20 Apr 2015 | 4:00 pm
    With three-quarters of companies naming reputational risk as a top risk concern, directors are increasingly seeking methods of risk oversight that are independent of management The reputational fallout from the hacking of Sony Pictures has played out like a mini-series of misery, with no clear end in sight. Just as the furor had begun to die down over leaked Sony emails revealing – among other things – that only one of the company’s 17 highest-paid executives is a woman, Patricia Arquette revived the gender-pay issue in her Oscars acceptance speech, with Meryl Streep’s…

It's no longer just the oracular policy pronouncements by the Fed chief that anxious investors are parsing for meaning. They are now also listening for certain phrases from senior executives or board chairs at US companies that may suggest a need for some instruction on how to optimize shareholder value.Actually, it’s not anxious investors we’re talking about here so much as agitated ones.

    Away meetings can give directors firsthand experience of company culture, but board road trips require a great deal of extra planning and time commitment A new level of board of director engagement has emerged. Directors’ involvement in a company’s strategic planning requires more than just a ratifying role. Beyond a one-time on-boarding program that familiarizes directors with the company’s business on-site, holding occasional board meetings ‘on the road’ can offer directors an additional layer of context for long-term strategic planning. Board visits to…

  • Mortgage Regulation Helps Lenders Learn from the Past

    The mortgage industry has undergone a unique series of changes over the last decade. New regulations, for example, have been set in place following a serious default crisis, which brought lending to its knees. Risky practices, it seems, came around on the industry, creating a domino effect that has taken years to reverse. And while high levels of oversight are designed to protect borrowers, the changing landscape of mortgage lending actually hinders buyers, at times. As the mortgage industry continues to evolve, home buyers and remortgagers must adapt to new conditions. What worked a decade…

  • Round Up to End Financial Debt

    Jon the Saver
    1 Apr 2015 | 6:27 am
    According to the best financial advisors, one of the most productive ways to end financial debt is to engage in rounding up to pay off. Essentially, this just means rounding off your debt payments to the nearest $10.00, or even, the nearest $100.00! There are two main reasons to engage in this task. First, a round, even number is easier to process when it comes to simple calculations. Second, by rounding up to the next $10.00 or the next $100.00, you are paying more towards the principal, which will reduce the total amount of debt that you owe and at a faster rate because it will reduce the…

    24 Apr 2015 | 9:00 am
    Eat, sleep, work, repeat….. sound familiar? For many it is the only way they know. There are times when we may divert from this repetitious pattern, however it is the get-up-and-go-to-work routine that most people volunteer for. Like a vicious cycle, many are stuck in what is often coined as the “rat race” of life. Working to pay the bills, to survive. The result ends up being that you merely work for your money, rather than your money working for you. “Money is only a tool. It will take you wherever you wish, but it will not replace you as the driver” (Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged).

    Technical Outlook: Excellent day yesterday for bulls as it appeared in the early going that price would end up resuming the move down to rising support down, until the dip-buyers came in and pushed it back to its recent highs.  However, 2111 remains a formidable level of resistance and needs to get taken out today.  5 & 10 day moving averages have converged nicely together and offering a level of support below yesterday's opening price.  SPY downtrend off of the February highs has been broken, and is consolidating nicely below $211.00. Break above this price, and the bulls…

    22 Apr 2015 | 5:28 pm
    Everyone wants to know how to get rich, but few ever get there. The answer is surprisingly simple, but most people seem to have a passion for making things needlessly complicated. The first step to achieving financial success is you need a rock solid financial foundation. Otherwise, you could have all the money in the world, but no clue on how you should manage it. A poor financial foundation will cause you to get lost in debt, going through the motions in life without a clear goal, or ignorant as to how you can effectively use every dollar passing through your hands as a tool to build…

  • 11 Signs That We Are Entering The Next Phase Of The Global Economic Crisis

    David Bettencourt
    23 Apr 2015 | 7:04 pm
    Well, the Nasdaq (NASDAQ:QQQ) finally did it.  It has climbed all the way back to where it was at the peak of the dotcom bubble.  Back in March 2000, the Nasdaq set an all-time record high of 5,048.62.  On Thursday, after all these years, that all-time record was finally eclipsed.  The Nasdaq closed at 5056.06, and Wall Street greatly rejoiced.  So if you invested in the Nasdaq at the peak of the dotcom bubble, you are just finally breaking even 15 years later. Unfortunately, the truth is that stocks have not been soaring because the U.S. economy is fundamentally strong.  Just like the…

The interviews also underscored one of our favorite ETF trading trends of 2014: cybersecurity ETFs. In the Sony attack, more than 3,000 computers and 800 servers were destroyed. Even worse, company secrets, unreleased movies, and the personal records of more than 6,000 employees were released. And these attacks will become more common, not less common. “We’re going to…

    David Fabian:  The precious metals market continues to be one of the most schizophrenic trades of the year that has confounded both bulls and bears. Every rally attempt is fierce and short-lived, while ever decline seems to overshoot rational boundaries. Some love it, while others have given up on it long ago. Nevertheless, speculation over the future price action of gold and silver continually garners headlines as investors look for clues to a rebound from this multi-year malaise. One word of caution that I always like to instill is that investing in precious metals via an exchange-traded…

Policy makers in China have been pushing hard in their attempts to get the Yuan included in the IMF’s elite fiat currency basket, the SDR, also known as the Special Drawing Right. This fiat currency is the king of all fiat currencies. It is exclusive to central banks and is valued even more highly than dollars, which has lead to much speculation about the future of its use. Some experts have even gone as far to say, that it will one day replace the US dollar as the reserve currency of the world, creating one global…

    Comment from reader Rich on yesterday's post prompted me to run a quick investigation - does adjusting bars helps to bring distribution of highs and lows closer to theory? The answer is definitely yes, but as everything else in life the reality is complicated. Here's what I found:Using SPY data for 2013 and 2014, and dividing trading day into 7 equal time intervals of about 56 minutes the percentages of highs and lows (and theoretical from arcsine law) are as follows: highs lows theoretical 30% 42% 25% 11% 14% 11% 9% 8% 10% 6% 4% 9% 7% 7% 10% 11% 9% 11% 27% 16% 25% So the numbers are clearly…

Similar (symmetric) U pattern exists for distribution of daily highs - they also more likely to happen near the open or the close.This particular distributions of daily extremes is actually not surprising - it is one of the properties of random walk process.

    Business is becoming more personal and personal is becoming more business. Let’s face it, today’s business travelers have a lot to juggle as we seem to be more connected to the office than ever before, no matter where you are in the world! And that is making it tough to take time off when you’re on the road. But for all the notifications pinging you back to reality, there’s another class of technology that makes business travel simpler, smarter and more efficient than ever.   The great news is “travel tech” just keeps getting better. What started with a few handy apps has…

    There is no way to avoid the hassle of business travel. In order to meet with clients face-to-face or even to visit a world-famous site on vacation, we all put up with the long airport security lines and cramped airplanes. There are a couple of things that can make traveling for business less of a pain, including a well-made and useful traveling bag. Here’s a list of bags that can make business travel easier for you.

    Today is April 22, otherwise known as Earth Day, a day celebrated annually to bring awareness to efforts to protect the planet we live on, rely upon and hold dear. This year, Earth Day celebrates its 45th anniversary, having brought 20 million Americans to the streets on its inaugural date in 1970 to protest environmental injustices and promote a more environmentally conscious society. Earth Day spawned a movement that continues today and carries on at Concur.   Besides making it a point of doing away with the need for paper receipts and automating your company’s expense management…

  • US Stock Picks: Growth strategy for Symantec includes a spinoff

    Scott Clayton
    23 Apr 2015 | 8:30 am
    SYMANTEC CORP. (Nasdaq symbol SYMC; www.symantec.com) sells computer security technology, including antivirus and email filtering software, to businesses and consumers. In its fiscal 2015 third quarter, which ended January 2, 2015, Symantec earned $367 million, unchanged from a year earlier. However, per-share earnings rose 1.9%, to $0.53 from $0.52, on fewer shares outstanding. Revenue slipped 3.9%, to $1.64 billion from $1.71 billion. But if you disregard the negative impact of the high U.S. dollar on the company’s overseas sales, revenue was flat. Symantec recently cancelled some…
  • Investor Toolkit: Avoid extremes with value investing and growth investing

    Pat McKeough
    22 Apr 2015 | 8:48 am
    Today’s tip: “Early experiences may lead you to prefer either value investing—trying to buy stocks at bargain prices—or growth investing—looking for rising stocks with further growth ahead. Here’s why you should combine the two. ” If you meet a large number of investors over a large number of years, it may seem they come in two basic categories—one inclined toward value investing, the other more interested in growth. This may be due in part to their early life experiences. Value investing—trying to buy assets at bargain prices—has natural appeal for those who grew up in…

    But EY predicts acceleration in IPOs for the rest of 2015 amid ‘solid’ fundamentals Global IPO activity has slowed in the first quarter compared with the same period a year earlier, led primarily by a slowdown in new listings in the US, according to a study by EY. A slump in US IPOs has placed the country behind both Asia-Pacific and the Europe, Middle East, India and Africa (EMEIA) region in terms of new listings activity, the report finds. The first three months of the year saw a worldwide total of 252 IPOs that raised a combined total of $38.2 bn, a decrease of 4 percent in…

The scale of the project quickly sank in as a to-do list as long as my arm formed – and continued to grow. That first day proved to be a perfect example of jumping straight in at the deep end, and it pretty much set the tone for the four months that would follow.We were gearing up to list the business when the equity markets started to become…

Yet this chart shows that the streaks never got longer than 5 years in those decades. However, a quick check of the history books will remind everyone that the market was up 8 straight years from 1982-1989 and then was also up 9 straight years from 1991-1999.

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

    The Wall Street Ranter
    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 news was recently going around about a Financial Literacy Test made by the OECD. The Wall Street Journal provided 5 sample questions from the test and I must say that the OECD fails it's own question.First of all I'm switching the "zeds" to $ for typing purposes. 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…

In fact, when you look around the world, on a relative basis, THEY SHOULD!Look at that list and tell me the United States should pay more on their debt then all those countries. France is borrowing at 1.77% people, FRANCE! You have Japan borrowing at a rate 76% lower than the US with more than twice the debt.

    There’s a tremendous amount of noise surrounding the stock market. And so it’s important to cut through it to focus on what really matters as an equity investor: what corporations are actually saying about their businesses. Even though the stock market is a secondary pricing mechanism anchored by monetary policy, it is a system that generally tries to discount a future stream of earnings. With so much institutional money floating within the system, pricing frequently gets irrational. But that in itself contributes to the opportunity and the investmentThe post Spring Stock Market Forecast:…

    Sorry to say this, folks, but I'm not jumping up and down during this earnings season. Yes, the big banks did well and you probably already realized that given the fees you’ve been paying. The thing is, I'm seeing soft or negative revenue growth with many of the S&P 500 companies that have reported early on in this earnings season. This raises a red flag. The reality is that soft growth has been around for years, and yet the stock market pushes it aside. I'm sure the same will happen this time; but you have to wonder, given the advance.

Unfortunately, manufacturers have not built firewalls and other basic security into these devices which has left an opening for malicious hackers.

Of course the Clintons have never had a shortage of either, except when they left the White House when they were "flat broke." With today's low information voter who votes with her emotional barometer rather than any sense of the country's well-being, it's distinctly possible that Bill is right.

Even the Silver to Gold ratio is now relevant. The level is extremely low, silver is so low and attitudes are so bad that people are now spitting on the metals, which means that they're set up to go higher. It's just a question of when, but when it does, watch out. We just don't know what the catalyst will be.

The proof of the pudding is in the tasting and the concept is really starting to take off. Allen expects over 50 lenders to be participating shortly.

    Phil Flynn

    By Lynn Doan and Dan Murtaugh | BloombergBusiness Oil needs to recover to $65 a barrel for U.S. drillers to tap a pent-up supply locked in shale wells and unleash more crude on markets than is produced by Libya.

Producers in oil and gas fields from Texas to Pennsylvania have 4,731 idled wells at their disposal.

    When creating a start-up, it’s easy to get lost in your product or service. 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,…

  • Medicare Cards Finally Remove Social Security Numbers

    Bill Hardekopf
    23 Apr 2015 | 8:50 am
    Life just got harder for identity thieves, thanks to some rare cooperation in Congress. Medicare has always used a person's Social Security number as their ID number in the Medicare system. They even print the Social Security number directly on the card for everybody to see. ID thieves scan medical records to look for the Medicare ID numbers, knowing they would be Social Security numbers. Once a thief has the Social Security number and some identifying information, this opens the door to all types of fraud. Filing false tax returns and applying for credit cards is just the tip of the iceberg.

  • 36% of Millennials Have Never Owned a Credit Card

    Millennials are sometimes viewed as the most irresponsible generation when it comes to finances, but new research suggests they may not be quite as careless as perceived. A recent study from Princeton Survey Research Associates International assessed the financial habits for 18-29 year olds, revealing that 36% have never owned a credit card. One of the biggest factors to this relatively high number of non-cardholders is the passing of the CARD Act of 2009. Under this law, young adults under the age of 21 could not get a credit card without sufficient proof of income or a cosigner. That…

  • Asset Location For Stocks In A Brokerage Account Versus IRA Depends On Time Horizon

    Michael Kitces
    22 Apr 2015 | 4:01 am
    In an environment where generating portfolio alpha is difficult, strategies like managing assets on a household basis to take advantage of asset location opportunities to generate “tax alpha” are becoming more and more popular. The caveat, however, is that making effective asset location decisions is not easy, either. For instance, while the traditional “rule of thumb” for asset location is that tax-inefficient bonds go into an IRA, while equities eligible for preferential tax rates go into a brokerage account, the reality is that for investors with long time horizons the optimal…

    For any service professional, time is the ultimate constraint. There’s just only so many hours you can work and deliver your services, before you run out of time. For those who own their service business – like many financial planning professionals – that capacity is even further limited by the time it takes to run and manage the business as well, not to mention finding the clients who will pay for your time. As a result, maximizing your economic value as a professional is all about maximizing the value of your time. In the early years of a practice, there’s more time available than…

  • Liquidate Appreciated Securities Tax-Free For College Funding By Avoiding the Kiddie Tax

    Michael Kitces

    The “kiddie tax” rules were created to limit the ability of families to save on taxes by simply shifting income – especially investment income – from higher-income family members (like parents) to lower income family members (such as children) to take advantage of their lower tax brackets. Yet while the kiddie tax rules are unavoidable for young children, it is often possible to avoid their reach for college students, who are not subject to the kiddie tax if they also generate enough earned income from wages and self-employment, or choose to attend school part time. Of course, working…

  • Employment Numbers Surprise Most and Change Fed Expectations (Again)

    Jack Rivkin
    7 Apr 2015 | 9:19 am
    In contrast to February, March employment numbers surprised on the downside, with adjustments to January and February reducing employment for the first three months to a seasonally adjusted average rate of 197,000, down from 220,000 previously. As we said last month, we would have expected some payback as the true impact of the weather, the port strike, and what was happening in the oil patch worked its way into the revised numbers and the month of March. Still, this was a surprising number on the low side. On the wage front, however, hourly earnings were up 0.3%. This is a little suspect…

    Don’t expect equity-like returns in traditional fixed income. I am just about to put out an update on our “What to Expect in 2015…” piece on Altegris Perspectives. However with a surprisingly good jobs report out this past Friday it is worth a specific comment on the report for those who care. The conclusion from the employment numbers lends some support to an increase in Fed Funds rate at mid-year. The early reaction of the US yield curve – a 10bps upward movement in 2-year interest rates – indicates that market expectations are moving in that direction as well. I think…

In the absence of the traditional bank lender willing to take normal risks, factors and non-bank ABL lenders emerged as the dominant vehicle for lending throughout this tumultuous period of American small business. These lenders, the factoring companies of America, should be applauded for adding financial stability to the business market. Looking back, their efforts did not go unrewarded.

The man trying to keep the whole political mess together and, having been given limited powers by his political overlords, has done the best he can and done a pretty good job of it too. But the latest ECB press meeting appeared to betray another side.

He sees no bond bubble, he sees no shortage of bonds to…

The initial closing break of this line occurred in yesterday’s trading session when the trend line was at 1.0797. The lower support line of the channel was then at the 0.9951 level, so the difference of 846 pips is projected upwards from the breakout point to yield a pattern break objective of 1.1643 for EUR/USD provided that the recent upside…
  • Sentiment in US Dollar Falls on Weak First Quarter

    PrimePair
    24 Apr 2015 | 12:58 am
    US manufacturing slowed in April the flash PMI survey showed. Markit’s survey of purchasing managers in the manufacturing sector fell to 54.2 dipping 1.5 points from a month earlier.  The report unsettled the markets because it represented a break in the steady uptrend in manufacturing seen since last December. Analysts had forecasted the index to come in at 55.5 just a fraction below the previous month. As well as disappointment on the manufacturing front, the US dollar saw sentiment dwindle on release of the weekly unemployment figures. New claims for unemployment unexpectedly increased,…
  • Sterling Rallies on Bank of England Minutes

    PrimePair
    23 Apr 2015 | 11:30 am
    After rallying above 1.50 sterling held on to gains following the release of the minutes from the Bank of England’s last monetary policy meeting. The committee voted unanimously to keep rates on hold at 0.5%, a decision that was widely anticipated. Bullish for the pound however were the comments and a change of tone around the pace of inflation. The committee sees the possibility of prices bouncing back more strongly in the months ahead. With that, markets are factoring in a slightly earlier rate rise, with most expecting early next year to be the kick off. Cable has broken through a…
  • EUR/AUD to start minor corrective upswing

    PrimePair
    23 Apr 2015 | 11:14 am
    EUR/AUD traded to touch a new long term low at the 1.3703 level last week. The cross had not traded that low since June of 2013. This new recent low came after the rate fell sharply from the 1.4443 peak seen on April 6th. That notable decline was in part a reaction to the downside break of a corrective rising channel shown in dark blue on the daily candlestick chart below that targeted 1.3702, which represents a move of the channel width of 370 pips from the 1.4072 breakout point. Since touching that fresh 1.3703 low on April 16th, EUR/AUD has traded sideways within a triangular consolidation…

  • Rule number 14

    14 Apr 2015 | 10:04 am
    It is not well to be too curious about all the reasons behind price movements  Price movements, either positive or negative, may be caused by forces not known to the general public.  If the price movement is positive, one may increase his or her position in the stock.  If the price movement is negative, one needs to sell the stock.
  • Rule #13

    7 Apr 2015 | 1:18 pm
    The human side of every person is the greatest enemy of the average investor or speculator.  Successful investors replace human emotions with logical analysis.  The key to investing success is research, research, and more research.  This is how true investment winners are discovered.  Logical analysis prevails over human emotion.
  • Rule number 12

    6 Apr 2015 | 10:50 am
    Never average losses  Averaging losses is when an investor buys a stock at a certain price, such as $50 a share. When the stock drops to $40 a share, the investor buys more of the same stock. The investor believes he or she is getting a “deal” on the lower-priced stock.  The hope is that the stock with rise again.  Averaging losses is a surefire way to lose money. The stock most likely will continue to drop and the investor is now losing even more money than before. Although it appears to lower the average cost per share, it is really throwing good money after…
  • Rule number 11

    2 Apr 2015 | 10:47 am
    I become a buyer as soon as a stock makes a new high on its movement after having had a normal reaction  Once a stock reaches a “New High”, it is a positive sign that new buyers are entering the market for the stock. Sometimes, there is a slight reduction in the market price after making a new high. See Figure 3, New High and New Low.  This is a normal reaction as some investors are taking profits.  New highs often increase in value to create additional new highs. 
  • Rule Number 10

    18 Sep 2014 | 2:06 pm
    10 Never buy a stock because it has had a big decline from its previous high  After a previous high, a stock needs to build a base before climbing higher to another new high.  A big decline signals there is something basically wrong with the stock and should be avoided or sold.  The investor should simply sacrifice some of the profits made on the stock and sell the entire position.  One does not want to “catch a falling knife.” See Figure 2, Falling Knife.
