    Hi Erica, Every year, I make up a holiday budget, and every year, I blow it. I just see something I think one of my kids would love, and I buy it without thinking through the consequences. I just “have” to get it, and feel if I don't, my kids' Christmas will not be as good. I'd appreciate any advice you can give me about this. –Janice Dear Janice, Don't be so hard on yourself. Not only do millions of other people shop 'til their bank balances drop, but it's perfectly natural to do so. Psychologists at the University of Sheffield in England…

    Russia and its redoubtable president, Vladimir Putin, have been much in the news lately. The latest flurry came when Putin was taken out behind the woodshed at the G20 conference in the Philippines last weekend over his recent moves to inject more Russian troops and arms into Ukraine. For today’s Outside the Box we have two pieces that deliver deeper insights into the situation with Russia and Putin. The first is from my good friend Ian Bremmer, President of the Eurasia Group and author of Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World. You probably caught my mention of…

    Two years ago, my friend Mohamed El-Erian and I were on the stage at my Strategic Investment Conference. Naturally we were discussing currencies in the global economy, and I asked him about currency wars. He smiled and said to me, “John, we don’t talk about currency wars in polite circles. More like currency disagreements” (or some word to that effect). This week I note that he actually uses the words currency war in an essay he wrote for Project Syndicate: Yet the benefits of the dollar’s rally are far from guaranteed, for both economic and financial reasons.

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

Perhaps the tax lawyers and accountants that serve multinational corporations are becoming more like bartenders by preparing the kind of “drinks” their customers really desire.

Since its founding in 2008, Uber, the dominant ride-sharing service, has spread to 122 cities of the at least 147 U.S. cities with taxi alternatives provided by ride-sharing companies. Uber faces no major competitor in 57 of those cities. But Uber’s three major competitors – Lyft, Curb and Sidecar – are catching up. By coverage, Lyft appears to be Uber’s chief rival, with drivers…

    China’s central bank cut its official interest rates for the first time in two years Friday, in a surprise move that sent international stock and commodity markets sharply higher. The action by the People’s Bank of China, which comes in response to a string of disappointing economic data and increasing signs of tension in local money markets, is the authorities’ strongest show of support in months. The economy is currently growing at its slowest rate since 2009, and while Beijing has tried to appear relaxed about that, surveys are now showing output stagnating and jobs being…

The state's unemployment rate dropped to 6.3 percent with only April's 6.2 percent rate coming in lower since the economic downturn. Employment data since April had been mixed at best, and Gov.

    Cash back credit cards can help consumers practice responsible spending while earning a little extra for their efforts when used properly. The days of earning 5% cash back for credit card purchases may be nothing but a memory, but the smart use of credit cards can still be profitable for diligent spenders. You may be able to find some credit cards offering a high level of cash back in certain spending categories, but these are often subject to maximums. Most of today’s better cash back credit cards offer 1% to 2% cash back on purchases. However, if you look hard enough, you’ll…

  • Retirement planning for women: Strategies for a secure retirement

    Suba Iyer
    17 Nov 2014 | 12:00 am
    More than two-thirds (68.1 percent) of the elderly poor are women. An October 2012 study by the American Association of University Women found that over the course of a 35-year career, an American woman with a college degree will make about $1.2 million less than a man with the same education. More than 70 percent of nursing home residents are women, whose average age at admission was 80. In 2006, the average annual cost of a private room in a nursing home was $75,000 and a shared room almost $67,000. It is a well known fact that women live longer than men.

After clicking your heels at the gas station when nobody was looking, you probably got in your car and started wondering: Is this for real? How long can it last? Is this just one of those blips you can clearly see on the chart, or are we seeing a fundamental shift toward lower energy prices?

  • In praise of not planning

    Richard Barrington
    10 Nov 2014 | 12:00 am
    It’s a good thing that I am a planner by nature because, dealing with personal finance as I do involves a lot of long-term planning. So it might seem a little odd for me to take this position, but there are times when your finances might be better for not having made a plan — or at least for not being completely ruled by your plans. Don’t take this too literally because planning has its place, but planning can also become tyrannical. It intimidates people from undertaking projects. Once a project is undertaken, too much reliance on planning can make people blind to better…

    For those investing for retirement, target-date funds sound like a great idea. Say you want to retire in 2030. Simply purchase a 2030 target-date fund, the wisdom holds, and the fund will do a lot of the heavy lifting for you when it comes to your investments. But like that time you tried to pass your literature midterm by scanning the Cliff’s Notes of “Crime and Punishment,” taking the easy way out may not be your best strategy here either. As one expert says, target-date funds are “the one-stop shop for mutual fund investing.” In selecting the holdings…

From the post; Being an infrastructure product it was intended as a yield play that would distribute 90% of its cash flow.

    Roger Nusbaum
    13 Nov 2014 | 6:14 pm
    Except it can’t be called an ETF. The proper terminology is exchange traded mutual fund and based on what we are hearing/reading this seems like it would be a tough sell.

    This week’s market update is posted at Alpha Baskets and includes the following; The President started out trying to strike a conciliatory tone but Barron’s DC Current column keyed in on his comment that “there are going to be some ideas that they’ve (the Republicans) got that they believe will improve the economy or create jobs that, from my perspective, aren’t going to help middle-class families improve their economic situation, so I probably won’t support theirs.” Please click through to read the entire update.

  • Some Bibles Are More Exemptable Than Others

    Jason Kilborn
    21 Nov 2014 | 2:16 pm
    I wonder how many Bankruptcy professors have posed a hypothetical about the exemption of a rare Bible worth lots of money? Well, a federal District Court in Illinois had to answer the question for real. The Illinois person property exemption statute includes the debtor's Bible. A debtor in Southern Illinois asserted this exemption in a rare, first-edition Mormon Bible that she had acquired (for free) from her local library. Apparently, the library director had not been paying attention, as the 1830 Bible was appraised at at least $10,000. Amusingly, the debtor's lawyer described…

  • Are Some Banks Using Credit Reports to Help Collect Discharged Debts?

    Dalié Jiménez
    18 Nov 2014 | 10:19 am
    Last week, Adam pointed us to a NYT's story on "zombie debt" after bankruptcy. I did a bit more research into the story because I had a hard time understanding the problem from the article. There are a few lawsuits that have been filed about this (I found ones against GE Capital/Synchrony, Bank of America/FIA Card Svcs, Citigroup, and Chase). The GE complaint alleges that the banks have a systematic practice of "selling and attempting to collect discharged debts and ... failing to update and correct credit information to credit reporting agencies to show that such debts…
  • ICMA CACs, New York Edition - Vietnam! - and More Un-Boilerplate

    Anna Gelpern
    18 Nov 2014 | 9:13 am
    Mexico's public offering with New York-style ICMA CACs is a huge deal. But it turns out that Vietnam's exempt offering on November 6, also under New York law, was there first. Since it is not a public offering, the disclosure document is not public, and the one press article describing it is behind a paywall. Here are a few bits that struck me as interesting about the three adoptions so far. The Clause Formerly Known as Pari Passu: Like Kazakhstan and Mexico, Vietnam fixes the pari passu clause to exclude the ratable payment interpretation. Funnily enough, the three seem to do…

    Indexes opened lower Wednesday and unlike most recent sessions the dip buyers did not come on as strong. The S&P 500 fell 0.15% and the NASDAQ 0.57%. The focus of the day was a release of the Federal Reserve minutes from the last meeting and most of the talk was of not enough inflation for the Fed's liking.

    How to Improve Cash Flow without Drastically Changing Your Business The good news is that we’re technically out of the recession. The bad news is, money is still not falling out of the sky. Every business and every market goes through fluctuations. Whether it’s a competitor opening down the street or a country-wide shift in the marketplace, the tide can turn on your business at any time, and frequently does. But there are plenty of things you can do other than grin and bear market changes. The way you structure your cash flow can make a HUGE impact on your business’ immunity to market…

    When you think of things that could bring down your business, you probably think about outside forces such as too few customers, rising materials costs, or overbearing government regulation. But did you know that internal cash management issues are the primary reason most businesses fail? Who’s in charge of internal cash management? You are. Poor cash management: The #1 threat to your business’ success In the most simplistic terms, every business runs like a math equation: money comes in, and money goes out. If more is going out than coming in, the business will eventually fail. Period.

The bridge was built in 1908 for trolleys to cross the Deerfield River between the towns of Buckland and Shelburne. When the trolley line discontinued in 1928 the local women’s club took charge.

Several states in the U.S. that are overly dependent on oil to meet their budget forecasts are starting to come to grips with the fact that their spending plans may not work in a low priced environment. Oil prices have dropped by more than 30 percent since the summer, with WTI prices dropping below $75 per barrel in…Read more...

    My favorite quote by H.L. Mencken is ‘a cynic is a man who, when he smells flowers, looks around for a coffin‘. A bit morose, I know, but this appeals to the contrarian in me. My second favorite is überly-applicable to US shale oil break-evens: ‘For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong‘. For there is no lack of estimates flying around as to the price level at which US shale oil production could be curtailed. The problem is, they all appear to be different. The debate was ignited…Read more...
  • The Economic And Strategic Implications Of Low Oil Prices

    20 Nov 2014 | 12:05 pm
    If oil prices continue to spiral downward, what will be the economic and strategic results? Not too bad, says Gawdat Bahgat. Consumers will benefit at the expense of producers and, perhaps more controversially, the ‘oil for security’ bargain crafted between Western powers and Middle Eastern suppliers will remain intact. Shortly after the 1973 Arab-Israeli war Arab oil producing countries cut production and imposed an oil embargo on the United States and a few other countries in retaliation for their support of Israel. This led to a…Read more...

The data from the field comes in very slow in Texas and the RRC only reports the data they receive. All data is through September and is in barrels per day.Crude has only shown a slight downward trend for the last two months. After revision, when the final data comes in, production will likely still be up slightly but if this is any indication, it will be up less than in months past.Texas condensate production started a…Read more...

The consolidation in SPX is allowing for a rest and the trend is still unbroken, however there is some sideways action at the moment. The uptrend is still intact.

SPX has been pulling back a little after topping the channel but RUT is already bouncing back from the 50 day line. NDX has barely budged from the rise and break it had and still strong here. The action in CMG is sideways which may lead to higher prices as the short sellers couldn't push this one down below as buyers kept stepping in. AAPL is looking strong here, and may run up higher towards the $100 century mark. PCLN has been forming a base and you can see…

    Much to the bears’ frustrations, the bulls remain in the driver’s seat although their foot has eased off on the gas pedal considerably over the past two weeks. Overseas, the ECB dropped another hint of expanding stimulus while upbeat sentiment data from Germany helped to spark a minor rally across the currency bloc.

    Wall Street started off the week on a relatively positive note, with the S&P 500 managing to log in a record close. Though Tuesday saw another day of record closes by the S&P 500 and the Dow, equities cooled off from highs by Wednesday in anticipation of the Federal Reserve’s minutes release. In economic news, the Commerce Department announced yesterday that housing starts fell 2.8% in October, while building permits rose 4.8%.

    By most measures, the U.S. economy is improving. Recent economic reports revealed two encouraging facts: The United States just experienced the best back-to-back quarters of growth since 2003 and fewer Americans are filing for unemployment benefits than at any time in the past 14 years. Unfortunately, most Americans don’t seem to put much faith in the numbers, or as Gustave Flaubert famously remarked, “There is no truth. There is only perception.” Today, the perception of most Americans is very different than the optimistic view reflected in government statistics. According to the…

First, each of these funds is deemed to be in a downtrend based on the fact that it is trading below its 200-day and 50-day moving averages, which are popular indicators for gauging long-term and medium-term trends, respectively. Second, each of these ETFs is also trading above its five-day moving average, thereby offering a near-term “sell on the pop” opportunity given the longer-term downtrend at hand.

    The Sugar trade I mentioned a few weeks ago that almost tripled one of my accounts had a lot of things going on inside it. But making the money was a symptom of several factors, some of which might surprise you. Of course, it goes without saying that I was powerless over the move in Sugar itself, so the best thing I could have done is what I did do: add some risk to my account and enter a protective stop to knock me out if I was wrong. I should also add that I had no clue the trade would develop even remotely the way it did when it started out. Technology-wise, I used EOD data from my broker…

    20 Nov 2014 | 10:57 am
    By Chris Ebert Stock prices tend to act like a spring. The further they are stretched to their limits, the further they tend to snap back in the opposite direction. The opposite is also true. When stock prices are not stretched very far, they don’t recoil nearly s far in the opposite direction when the stretching force is removed. This is particularly true of large baskets of stock – stock indexes such as the Dow, Nasdaq or S&P 500 – since the forces that can move an index are limited. Earnings or other news can move an individual stock, but for a large index the news tends to…

    By Chris Ebert It can be fascinating, yet horribly frustrating, to realize that stock prices are not a mathematical function. If stock prices behaved as a mathematical function, there would be only one outcome for a given set of conditions. For example, if a stock price fell to the 200-day simple moving average, and always moved higher immediately afterward; the bounce higher would be a function of the simple moving average. Output is, in reality  not a function of input for stock prices. Stock prices are always stochastic no matter how deterministic their appearance. While it is true that…

These opportunities range from academic overviews of governance theory to programs that specialize in practitioner-based sessions by directors who have racked up years of experience in the boardroom. ‘Sometimes the reason they come is dictated by where they are in their careers,’ says…

    A fresh, diverse board is key to achieving corporate goals and withstanding investor scrutiny Corporate boards face ever-expanding agendas, uncertain market conditions, lickety-split technology changes and the challenge of complying with regulations in ever-increasing numbers of jurisdictions where their companies want to do business. Generally, business is more global and more complex. There are increasing reputational, legal and compliance risks, and increasing numbers of shareholders are scrutinizing boards’ actions and speaking out when they don’t like what they see. This…

    Eric Patterson

    Winter is quickly approaching and every year without fail I’m reminded of how awesome it is to get that first snow. Nothing is more memorable than the epic snowball battles I had in college on the campus of Virginia Tech as a military cadet. The game was every man for himself, and though I was easily outnumbered, I would always rely on military tactics to cause my adversaries to retreat. I think of debt the same way. When it comes to battling it, every man is for himself. Unlike the snowball wars engaged by playful college kids, debt plays with a very heavy hand that can leave you broken…
  • Using the Annual Paid-Up Additions Rider

    Whole Life insurance is a unique vehicle for your money. How can this be, when typically life insurance is thought of as a product needed only for when you (cough cough) croak? The reason is that with Whole Life you get immediate living benefits (including a cash value), and a death benefit. Owners of whole life insurance policies maximize the living benefits from their policies in any way they see fit. For instance, if you need financing for a car, new home or college tuition, you can easily borrow from your policy, not a bank. What is (APUAR) or Annual Paid Up Addition Rider? A Paid Up…

    Justin Martin
    18 Nov 2014 | 12:29 pm
    Before I became an agent at Paradigm Life, I worked for many years as a stock broker. When the economy was on a down swing I would advise my clients to, “invest for the long-run.” During bear market periods I wanted clients to see farther than the moment at hand, and hold their positions until we could see corrections-even if they were slight. Some clients though, who depended on returns for retirement, did not have the time to wait, so in distress would quickly sell portions of their 401(k)s and IRAs to provide supplemental income. Whether you are reacting to a bear market, or preparing…

It’s also hard to give up extra income to purchase new business equipment, managing software, or even attend expensive training seminars; but you do it anyways.

    Stop using your credit cards and start borrowing your own money instead. One of the major benefits of having a whole life insurance policy is liquidity. It’s having access to your money when you need it. The average American household is carrying about $15,500 in credit card debt. And 33% of people own at least 2 cards. Chronic misuse of credit cards, such as making purchases way above a person’s ability to afford, has become the norm. (Nerdwallet.com)  Considering the average median income per year, per household is $51,000-that is a horrible debt-to-income ratio. Leveraging Yourself…

    Hi Erica, If my only credit card is rejected for not having enough available credit for what I buy at the store, but I pay on time, can I still buy something by having the credit card company up my credit limit? Christmas is coming. –Jessica Dear Jessica, Let's examine what's going on here. You would like to use your sole card for your holiday shopping needs, yet you already owe quite a lot on the account. By being at or near the charging limit — otherwise referred to as the credit limit — the creditor won't allow you to add much more, at this stage, anyway.

A 2014 Federal Trade Commission report found that over 2,500 retailers sell, swap and share information on consumer credit and debit card purchases. So, whenever you swipe your card, the store might disseminate data on the type of item you purchased – for example, natural food, toothpaste or high-end shoes – as well as the dollar amount you spent and the date of purchase, according to the FTC report, “Data Brokers: A Call for…

    If you're struggling to make credit card payments, debt settlement might sound like a quick fix. But while it may work for some, it's no easy cure. “Debt settlement is an aggressive strategy for debt reduction,” says Charles Phelan, founder of ZipDebt.com, which offers tools and coaching to help consumers settle their own debts. “But, it's not for everyone.” Essentially, debt settlement is making a deal with a creditor who agrees to take less than the total you owe as full payment of the debt. It is an option to consider after all others fail. Before you…

  • Pensioners Better Off by £500 a Year Under Coalition

    wendy
    21 Nov 2014 | 1:51 am
    According to the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS), pensioners are now better off by £500 a year and have by and large, escaped the Coalition’s cuts to the welfare system. The body announced their data at the same time as the Government launched its campaign to heighten awareness about the forthcoming changes to the state pension.    From April 2016, the current basic state pension of £113.10 a week will be replaced by a single-tier system which should pay out in the region of £155 a week if the retiree has paid 35 years’ worth of National Insurance contributions. Whilst the…
  • More Than Half of Over-55s Don’t Understand the Tax Implications of the Pension Freedom Reforms

    wendy
    18 Nov 2014 | 1:44 am
    Retirement income specialists, MGM Advantage, have warned that many pensioners will face surprise tax bills when they start to withdraw large sums of money from their pension pots following the new pension freedom changes which take effect from April 2015. From next April, any person who has a defined contribution pension can start to access their pot from the age of 55, without having to buy an annuity product. However, whilst the first 25% of each withdrawal will be tax-free, the rest of each withdrawal will be subject to income tax at the appropriate band. MGM Advantage are concerned that…
  • Military Widows Can Now Remarry and Not Lose Their Pension

    13 Nov 2014 | 8:07 am
    The Prime Minister has overturned a ruling which denied military widows their spouses’ pension if they remarried. David Cameron has announced plans to reverse the long-held decision that military widows who marry forego the right to their husband’s pensions. The move, which comes into effect on the 1st of April 2015, will affect thousands of military widows and allow them to get on with their lives knowing their deceased partner’s pension will still be available to them. Currently, if a military partner loses their spouse they are only allowed to claim the deceased’s pension if they…

    The new pension reforms which take effect in April 2015 have raised more questions for those due to retire over the next few years. The National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF) says that the Government’s overhaul of the way private pensions can be accessed has raised ‘101 questions’ and has left many soon to be retirees very confused about their financial future. The pension body has asked the Government to clear up the uncertainties and ensure that people get the correct guidance before they make such important decisions about their retirement income.    Anyone who has…

    For those due to retire after April 2015 who have been contributing towards a defined contributions scheme, the new pension reforms are proving to be a confusing affair, leaving many with more questions about their financial future than answers. The new pension freedom reforms which allow anyone over the age of 55 to access their entire pension pot without having to purchase an annuity will please many, but for others they will need specialist guidance to proceed and ensure they make the best financial decisions for them and their retirement needs. There have been many other changes which…

    21 Nov 2014 | 6:27 am
    Yesterday morning ES tested the weekly pivot at 2035.5, and then SPX tested the 50 hour MA and then SPX was off to the races again. That 50 hour MA has held on five tests out of the last six trading days and until we see a break below it this uptrend is still very much intact. That first break below would normally also precede the main high, so that main high still doesn't look close here.

  • SharePlanner Reversal Indicator: Hitting The Extremes

    SharePlanner Reversal Indicator is hitting high levels of altitude lately.  In times past, a bearish reversal would have usually led to respectable pullback in the broader market, but since the Fed took a heavy hand in the market since 2008, the bearish reversal signals can mean one of two things: Either a sell-off is coming or price action is simply going to consolidate.  Due to the strength in the market over the past five years, I have come to expect that a bearish reversal should have the default setting of signaling a period of consolidation unless proven otherwise.  Here…

    Over the past 20 years, most successful financial services organizations have invested in the concept of developing a sales culture. Certainly training and hiring practices have played key roles in executing this strategy, but now technology needs to move the game to a new level.

  • Talking to a “machine” doesn’t equate to poor customer service

    Personalized service is not lost due to the impersonal nature of technology. In fact, technology provides numerous opportunities for enhancing personalized service—it’s all about the way its applied to the interaction.Often times I hear bankers say “when our customers call us, a live person answers, not a machine.” Now, don’t get me wrong, this is a nice touch, but what happens next? Most people don’t mind interacting with a “machine” if the process is logical, clear and efficient. This is often much better than waiting on hold or being transferred three times, having to…
  • Where is the traditional teller role heading…oblivion?

    3 Jan 2013 | 8:54 am
    Indications are that the primary role of tellers will change at some institutions in the next few years, but not all. Conducting routine financial transactions with a live person is still preferred by a significant portion of the customer base, especially customers amongst an older demographic who tend to have higher net worth. Many institutions attempt to cost justify this personal service, through transaction fees or offsetting investments, with varying success. However, there is big opportunity to get a tangible payback on the Teller role—position them to participate in customer…

    3 Dec 2012 | 12:57 am
    Perhaps it comes down to the question of what constitutes great service. My favorite answer being “I can’t define great service, but I know it when I see it.” I recently asked a group of call center managers this very question and the popular reply was “treat people the way you would want to be treated.” One person piped up and said that was wrong…You should treat people as they wish to be treated. Both are good points, but too conceptual. What works for you? For me, a great experience is made up of a series of basic steps: For starters, I like a genuine greeting with a smile that…

    David Fabian: The internet is buzzing this week about an article written by Tony Robbins touting an “all weather” portfolio developed by famed hedge fund investor Ray Dalio.  While Tony is certainly a polarizing figure and life coach, the real meat of this story is in the structure of an investment plan to ride out any storm. The summation of the strategy is that investors should balance their risks by investing in a diversified base of stocks, bonds, and commodities to ride out anything the market throws your way.  By doing so you are able to sidestep concerns of inflation,…
  • Will Small Cap Stocks Bounce Back In 2015?

    David Bettencourt
    21 Nov 2014 | 12:23 pm
    Tyler Laundon: Small cap stocks continue to underperform large cap stocks in 2014. As of today, small caps are underperforming by nearly 10%. Given the rather large performance disparity it’s worth discussing whether or not small caps can make a comeback in 2015. Over the long term small caps outperform. So their underperformance this year is a bit of an anomaly given the strength in the broader market. While the S&P 500 is up 12% in 2014, the S&P 600 Small Cap Index is up just 2.8%. But if we look back over the past six years it’s a little easier to see why small caps fell…

But investors were having none of it over the past few months. They started selling in late summer, then dumped them like hotcakes in October. Take the Alerian MLP ETF (AMLP), a benchmark sector ETF that rarely moves more than a couple nickels a day. It dropped 2.4 percent on Oct. 9, then a hefty 4.5 percent on Oct. 13.

In this post I will cover the Agile tactics that solve the three biggest pain points teams experience.   Most marketing teams are channel-driven, yet there is still a need to align on brand voice and even campaign themes across these channels.

      Many businesses are managing tax compliance on vendor invoices manually and the stakes are high: expensive compliance costs, errors in under or over-assessing tax, and costs in potential penalties and interest if a mistake happens.

    Fearless. Knowledgeable. Decisive. Moving beyond traditional roles, the modern CFO is all of these things and more. As financial overseers, they pave the way for their organization to move into the future with confidence. She or he is heavily invested in the well being of their company, acting as an advisor to the CEO, storyteller to investors, and ally to their employees. And there is another less-explored trait that is fundamental for every successful CFO: Trustworthiness.   The best leaders are the ones who gain the trust of both their team and the general public.

    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.

    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.

(LOW) recently soared on the stock market after beating Wall Street consensus with its latest earnings report. The stock has been on a tear over the last couple of years, just like The Home Depot, Inc. (HD). In the absence of a material shock, stocks should finish out the year with another solid gain. And this is on top of a tremendous year in 2013. The…
  • NASDAQ 5,000 Just Around the Corner

    George Leong, B.Comm.
    20 Nov 2014 | 11:50 pm
    Thinking back to early 2000, I thought the NASDAQ stock market would eventually trade at 5,000, but I wasn’t sure about how long it would take. Well, now it looks like the answer at the time would have been around 15 years. After a decent run this year, the NASDAQ stock market is trading within 300 points, or 6.2%, of the magical 5,000-point level. The index is leading the broader market higher this year with a 12.75% advance and is continuing to show promise on the chart with a bullish golden cross, based on my technical analysis. Investor sentiment has been bullish on the NASDAQ stock…
  • Gold Market Setting Up to Reward Investors

    Michael Lombardi, MBA
    19 Nov 2014 | 7:24 am
    I’ve been singing the same song to my readers all year: look at dips in the price of gold bullion as an opportunity to buy more of the metal. When gold fell below $1,150-an-ounce in early November and so many analysts came out with the prediction of $1,100 or $1,000-an-ounce gold, I was writing about what a bargain gold stocks had become. (See “Prices of Gold /Silver Companies to Double from Here.”) Pay close attention to the circled area in the gold spot price chart below.
  • Microsoft Expecting Its Strongest Quarter

    Mitchell Clark, B.Comm.
    19 Nov 2014 | 7:16 am
    One company that is consistently seeing its earnings estimates tick higher is Microsoft Corporation (MSFT). The stock has basically doubled since the stock market breakout at the beginning of 2013, and the company has been increasing its dividends significantly. Microsoft’s current quarterly dividend, payable in early December, is $0.31 a share, representing an 11% gain over the previous quarterly dividend. The company’s revenues still have a lot of momentum. In its most recent quarter (ended September 30, 2014), Microsoft saw total sales grow to $23.2 billion, up materially from $18.5…
  • Two Major Concerns About Overvalued Stock Market Prices

    Michael Lombardi, MBA
    17 Nov 2014 | 7:46 am
    The amount of money investors are borrowing to buy stocks is skyrocketing. In September of this year, margin debt on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) stood at $483.87 billion—a new record-high. When the stock market was forming a top in 2007, margin debt was at a “then” record-high of $329.51 billion. Margin debt on the NYSE is now 47% higher than just before the previous big market sell-off. (Source: New York Stock Exchange web site, last accessed November 10, 2014.)

    Kane Farabaugh | Voice of America CHICAGO— With the price of oil now less than $80 a barrel, motorists throughout the United States are benefiting from gas prices below $3 a gallon. However, the decreasing price of gas has a downside for the hydraulic fracturing industry in the United States. North Dakota’s economy is on fire, thanks to developments in technology that allow oil extraction from shale formations deep below the surface. The process to extract that oil, known as hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” is the source of the economic boom for states on top of these deposits.

In a survey of Americans aged 45 and older, 57% described retirement as a new chapter in life, seeing it as an opportunity to explore new options and pursue their dreams. Many pre-retirees don’t envision a traditional retirement at all, but want to reinvent their careers by entering a new field of work.1

The Standard & Poor’s 500 index posted a gain of 177% for the five-year period.1 The current bull followed on the heels of the Great Recession and the worst stock market decline since the 1929 stock market crash. The most recent bear market began in October 2007; the S&P 500 fell 57% before hitting the bottom on March 9, 2009.2 In typical fashion, investors who sold stocks during the downturn may not have participated fully in some of the subsequent bull market gains.

    As with any purchase, it would be wise to learn more about a stock before investing. Because no one has a crystal ball, the price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio can be a helpful tool. Underlying Value On its surface, the P/E ratio is a simple calculation derived by dividing a stock's current price per share by the company's earnings per share over a 12-month period. You might consider it a measure of underlying value that indicates what investors are willing to pay for one dollar of earnings. For example, a P/E of 17 means an investor would pay $17 for every $1 the company earns. By this standard, a…

  • Women Lag in Board Representation—But Is Change Underway?

    Alice Holbrook
    18 Nov 2014 | 10:28 am
    Women’s complaints of sexism in the office may fall on deaf ears. After all, according to many workplace surveys, women are doing better than they ever have. The U.S. Department of Labor found that 57.2% of American women of working age participate in the labor force—though workforce participation in general is trending downward. More women are reaching leadership positions than ever before. Nearly two of every five managers are women—double the number 40 years ago, U.S. Census Bureau data shows. But a new glass ceiling appears impervious to the shattering momentum made by women in…

    Jason Van Steenwyk
    27 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    Most of us are conditioned to see a breakup as a bad thing. In business, most CEOs are looking for ways to expand, acquire profitable subsidiaries and increase the assets under management. But sometimes, the cure for an overcomplicated, unmanageable or unfocused firm is to turn the mergers and acquisitions process upside down. 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. All of these are variants of a strategy called divestiture Pros and Cons of Big Businesses…

    As mobile payments increase in popularity, merchants in Canada are concerned about a possible increase in fees. As a result, the country's Finance Minister may announce an adjustment in Canada's code of conduct for credit and debit cards, allowing merchants to not accept mobile payments in their stores.

    Binary options are inherently very risky.  The contracts have no intrinsic value per say.  When you lose, you lose 100% of your position, and when you win, you can win big.  To a new trader, binary options can feel a lot like gambling.  Trading binary options is not the same as gambling, but if you don’t know what you are doing it is as least as risky.  Remember, the advantage of using binary options is that you do not need to trade with a lot of capital to earn a high return.  Respect how quickly you can both earn and lose a lot of money trading this instrument.

    Fifteen of the nineteen 9/11 hijackers were Saudi Arabian, two more were from the United Arab Emirates, one was from Egypt, and one from Lebanon. They were all from Arabic-speaking countries, and presumably the terrorists read Islamic scripture in the original Arabic. Muslim scholars did not unite to protest this act of terrorism. Instead, many celebrated a victory, because the Quran includes passages that permit violence to expand Islam.

With higher rate taxpayers now matching the peak levels of pre-recession and the threshold getting ever lower, more and more people are now being sucked into the higher rate earnings category.

  • What Are The Advantages Of Using A Credit Card?

    admin
    21 Nov 2014 | 7:35 am
    Safety is one of the reasons for using plastic. If the same incident had happened to you but you had credit cards inside your wallet instead of cash, you could immediately notify your credit card issuer about the incident and you won’t be held liable for charges that are made after informing them of the loss. When it’s your cash that’s stolen, it becomes virtually impossible to get back the amount. Convenience is another advantage offered by credit cards. It is accepted by nearly all establishments not only in the United States but around the world as well. You won’t have to go to the…
  • Do I Need To Hire A Bankruptcy Attorney?

    admin
    20 Nov 2014 | 10:03 am
    Under US federal law, companies that file for bankruptcy have to use a bankruptcy attorney. However, the situation is different for individuals. If you are filing for personal bankruptcy, you can represent yourself in court – this is referred to as a “pro se” filing. However, just because you can represent yourself does not necessarily mean that this is a good idea. Bankruptcy can be very complicated, and if you don’t follow all of the technical steps, then you can end up having your case dismissed. For example, you will generally be required to attend approved credit counseling in…
  • How Many Credit Cards Should I Have?

    admin

    Figures from the Federal Reserve and data from government agencies showed that the credit card debt of US households stand at $15,191 on the average. With this kind of debt burden, knowing how many credit cards you should have is important. First of all, it should be pointed out that you have already given the answer to your question when you said that you’ve “always done well with one credit card.” If you are managing that one plastic admirably and you have no issues with having only a single card then there is no reason why you should have more. There really is no right or wrong…

  • How Can I Get The Best Deal On Car Insurance?

    admin
    17 Nov 2014 | 6:25 am
    There is definitely a way for you to get the best deal on car insurance. Coming from Louisiana where the cost of insurance is close to three times more than drivers in the East, you have a very legitimate concern as far as bringing down the cost of your auto insurance premiums is concerned. No one wants to waste money paying higher premiums when there is no need to. Doing so would be clearly throwing money away. To get the best deal on car insurance, keep these things in mind: Review your policy to see if changes are necessary. Just accepting what the insurer dishes out to you is not the best…

    The fields of commercial banking and equity research are poles apart. The main agenda of commercial banks is to manage public money deposits such as savings accounts, fixed deposits and checking accounts. The commercial banks issue loans to the public and earn from the interest with which loans are issued. They are governed by federal authorities as is established in all countries. On the other hand, equity research is about studying currency market positions, stock market performances, inflation rates, industry performance and influencing economic environment factors that impact key…

In addition, the FPA also released this week a new study about advisors and growth, finding that advisory firms are…
  • Allocating A Portfolio In The Context Of Human Capital And The Rest Of A Household’s Total Balance Sheet

    Michael Kitces
    19 Nov 2014 | 4:01 am
    While portfolio management understandably focuses on how best to allocate a portfolio, the reality for many (or even most) investors is that their financial assets may not even be the majority of their total net worth, compared to other assets like real estate, the (illiquid) value of their pensions and Social Security, and for those who haven’t retired yet, their human capital. In fact, for younger workers, their human capital – or the present value of their future earnings from employment – may actually be the largest asset they own! Yet the reality is that assets like human capital,…

Now, a decade later and with no small amount of irony, I find myself being “forced out” – or as I like to put it, “graduating” – under the very age-based rule I fought so hard to keep in place early on. For me, today is a day of…
  • Are Profit Margins For Financial Advisors Too Generous, Or Are AUM Firms Actually Not Profitable Enough To Survive The Next Bear Market?

    Michael Kitces
    17 Nov 2014 | 4:01 am
    While early adopters of the assets-under-management (AUM) model got started in the late 1980s or early 1990s, the model only really began to become widely adopted in the early 2000s. Yet as the AUM model has become increasingly popular, and firms have had time to build, the “typical” advisory firm has grown significantly, from an average of only $25M of AUM in 2002 to more than $200M of AUM in 2013. And with an average profit margin of about 22%, the typical advisory firm owner with an AUM practice is enjoying record take-home pay. Yet the caveat is that as advisory firms on the AUM model…

Several things about this organization make me wonder what its donors are thinking, or if they can think at all.  Pachamama's financial statement for 2013 shows that it spends 12% of its budget on fundraising and 7% on general administration.  That 19% is a high figure just for…

    After more than a decade, ebay and paypal had made an official announcement that they will split as two separate companies by next year. This was influenced partly by eBay shareholder and activist, Carl Icahn, when he first coerced the split more than six months ago. The announcement resulted in a growth of 7% in eBay stock giving off $71 B in revenue. According to the board, the move was decided to “best position both at a rapidly changing global commerce and payments landscape” and “is the best path for sustaining shareholder value.” The move was considered as a complete reversal of…

Now, it seems that we are once again in the brink of war, or at the very least, at the risk of unexpected terrorist attacks. We hear it on the news and we feel it from the strengthened security measures every time we enter the mall. And remember that ridiculous video that went viral, where there were two women complaining about the anti-terrorism policy in the Super Bowl where their large purses weren’t allowed in the arena?

    19 Oct 2014 | 8:03 pm
    If you had to choose between the two – CFA or FRM, which one will you take? Maybe CFA, maybe FRM or both? This is one of the most freqently asked questions when students make up their mind to advance their careers in Finance. Making the right choice is important because each of the examination takes lot of hard work, money and ofcourse lot of time. The choice, however, is sometimes difficult for those who are not aware of its key differences. I was fortunate to pass both the CFA and FRM exams and was lucky to go through the course details, benefits and nuances of both the examinations.

    When you analyze a company’s financial health, the very first measure that you may want to check is profitability. The portion of a company’s profit allocated to each outstanding share of  common stock is known as Earnings Per Share or EPS. Though the interpretation of Earnings Per Share is relatively easy, however, the EPS calculation is not this simple. For example, let us have a look at the Colgate Palmolive Earnings Per Share Schedule.   source – Colgate 10K filings We note that there are two variations of EPS – Basic EPS and Diluted EPS in Colgate Also note…

  • Lower Oil Prices: The Inflection Point?

    As you might be observing, oil prices have fallen over the past three months. Recently Goldman Sachs has slashed its 2015 Brent oil price forecasts to $85 per barrel for March 2015. Talking about the Indian Subcontinent, the prime beneficiary to this event is the Government of India which can meet its fiscal deficit targets comfortably. Since diesel subsidies form a major portion of the government’s annual budget, reduction in oil prices will cut down expenditures. Taking advantage of lower oil prices, the Government has proactively deregulated diesel prices. Although this decision was long…

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

At the same time, Mario Draghi’s words were viewed as “dovish” with the likelihood that Quantitative Easing (QE) by the European Central Bank (ECB) will occur at some point soon in Europe. While this is clearly the consensus, we do have two experiments going on and we can all speculate about the outcomes. Now, on to my speculations.

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

    What is market timing? The most sought after advice in the book is to purchase and sell high and market timing is an attempt to do the same old thing once more which is to sell when the market is high and buy when it is low. Obviously, it is not that straightforward since the market timing in essence entails predicting whether the market will keep going the way it is predicted or make a turn up or down which is in theory easy but is difficult to attain in practice.

    Some bond funds are now forgoing safety in pursuit of higher yields. There are basically three warning signs that investors should be wary about. The first is that if a fund starts to invest in bonds with a credit rating of CCC or lower, this category is regarded as bonds where things are not going that well. In a span of 30 years which ended a year ago in 2013, the average level of default for bonds with those credit rating was 12.9 % while typical yield was 15.5 %. A yield does not hardly compensate the investor for the elevated risk for being in default. Funds which invest in CCC or…

    Singapore was ranked as the best place in the world to do business for the 7th year in a row by the Economist Intelligence Unit’s (EIU) Business Environment and Ranking Index, securing the top spot because of an “efficient, open economy that works hard to maintain its competitiveness as a regional hub for global businesses”.

    The current path of Asian stock exchanges making cross-border investment easier through partnerships and linkages is set to continue, according to industry heads from throughout the region. Bourses in Asia face little competition from each other, but leaders see much to gain by working together and increasing the free movement of capital – especially as Southeast Asia transforms into a single market with the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) set to arrive in 2015, and with China seeking to better integrate its own capital markets. “The connection between exchanges will be more common,…
