    When considering whether you should get your MBA, one of the first things that come to mind is the financial cost you will have to bear to achieve this goal.

It can be one of our favorite pastimes, munching on an assortment of delicious, delectable delights.

Some go straight from turkey at the table to the front door of their favorite store. Others get up in the middle of the night to try to avoid the rush.

    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…

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…

The average deal value was $74 million with an average enterprise value to revenue multiple of .79. Overall valuations are modest for several reasons.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Black Friday seemed a little less crazy this year. There were squabbles here and there, and elbows got thrown, but the Friday morning crowds appeared smaller than usual and less frenzied, in part because many Americans took advantage of stores’ earlier opening hours to do their shopping on Thanksgiving Day. That might be hard to stomach for people worried about commercial encroachment on Thanksgiving. But it is good news for bargain-hunters who hate crowds. Whether it’s good news for retailers remains to be seen. Sales estimates for the start of the holiday…

While the busiest time of the holiday shopping season is really the weekend before Christmas, Black Friday really sets the tone for the season, and gives retailers a read on what’s working and what’s not, and what consumer mood is at the start of a season that generates 30% of annual profit for the industry.

Major retailers were just beginning to invest in their displays to entice potential customers ahead of the Christmas shopping spree, and the reporter was impressed. “All this not only added melody to Christmas shopping but made the Avenue’s 80,000 daily pedestrians acutely aware of an artistic rivalry which has begun to show signs of lustiness,” the reporter wrote in the December 1938 issue.

    22 Nov 2014 | 11:05 am
    Many people who have been mis-sold payment protection insurance (PPI) policies are unaware that they can claim back the premiums they have paid. Millions of PPI policies were sold alongside loans, mortgages and credit cards. A High Court ruling means that banks and other lenders who have breached the regulations are obliged to pay back all fees – plus compensation – on such policies. It is now known that billions of pounds have been set aside to cover the costs of this scandal, and with an industry average payout of just under £3000 per policy, it is well worth seeing if you are one…

  • A few comments on the Seasonal Pattern for House Prices

    Bill McBride
    28 Nov 2014 | 6:11 pm
    A few key points:1) There is a clear seasonal pattern for house prices.2) The surge in distressed sales during the housing bust distorted the seasonal pattern.3) Even though distressed sales are down significantly, the seasonal factor is based on several years of data - and the factor is now overstating the seasonal change.4) Still the seasonal index is probably a better indicator of actual price movements than the Not Seasonally Adjusted (NSA) index.For in depth description of these issues, see Trulia chief economist Jed Kolko's article "Let’s Improve, Not Ignore, Seasonal Adjustment of…

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…

    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…

    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?

    28 Nov 2014 | 4:33 am
    One of the best ways to gauge a trader's state of mind is by tracking his or her entry and exit execution.  Two traders can have the exact same idea and either make or lose money depending upon how they get into and out of the market.  Here are three P's that I look for in excellent execution:1)  Planned - Do you have entry and exit criteria mapped out in advance, so that you know exactly your risk and reward at the time you enter a position?  Too often traders fool themselves into thinking they have a feel for markets and simply enter and exit when it feels right. …

    James Clear has an excellent blog post on the topic of how constraints can make us better.  His example is futsal, a soccer-like game played in a small indoor space with fewer players.  The combination of fewer players in a smaller space means that players touch the ball much more often than in traditional soccer and have to develop better ball-handling skills due to the lack of bounce of the futsal ball.  Because of the constraints of futsal, it is an idea training ground for soccer players.When we create new constraints, we force ourselves to adapt.  This, in turn,…

  • Walker Fire Treats Dog Injured In Rollover Accident

    A twofer this morning. My latest for Alpha Baskets looks at a couple of articles on retirement that popped up last week that I believe combine to drive home the idea of tailoring a solution that employs innovation to succeed. This is obviously an important topic but also fun to read about and write about. From the post; One idea that he offered was that if you can put half your assets into an immediate pay annuity and have the payout cover your expenses then you are over funded, if not then you are underfunded. For anyone new, I am not an annuity guy, I’ve never been paid for an annuity and…
  • A Yield Play Without Any Yield?

    Roger Nusbaum
    18 Nov 2014 | 10:41 am
    My latest for Alpha Baskets is titled A Yield Play Without Any Yield? and looks at the struggle of a very hot, yield oriented IPO. The big picture idea is chasing yield. The stock has a great story but appears to have not paid any dividends (checked four sources). From the post; Being an infrastructure product it was intended as a yield play that would distribute 90% of its cash flow. I was unable to find evidence that a dividend had been paid yet after looking at four different sources (Yahoo Finance, Google Finance, Nasdaq.com and Motley Fool).

  • The New Non-Transparent ETF Is Coming!

    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. They won’t actually trade throughout the day but you can place an order anytime with the execution price being some number above the NAV is you’re a buyer or some number below the NAV if you’re a seller. And there are other aspects as confusing and opaque as that last sentence. AdvisorShares has good writeup on the subject. It is worth learning about as this feels like some sort of evolutionary step,…

    Bob Lawless
    26 Nov 2014 | 11:11 am
    It is with great sadness that I pass along the news that Jean Braucher passed away yesterday. Jean was my co-author, my co-blogger, and my friend. This news came suddenly this morning for all but her closest family and friends who were aware of her illness.  The official record will show that Jean was a giant among bankruptcy and contracts scholars. Her work on local legal culture in bankruptcy courts is one of the standard references on the topic. As Dov Cohen and I were trying to understand the disparities we were seeing in our data among local bankruptcy courts, we turned to Jean. She…
  • 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 personal 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…

    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…

Tuesday's economic reports were mixed; the Conference Board's index of consumer confidence declined to 88.7 in November from 94.1 the prior month, and the Commerce Department reported gross domestic product...

Aside from the holidays there was still some carryover from the words and actions of central bankers overseas last week.

    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.

    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.

I don’t often travel with others, but when I do it’s usually with Jill, whom I frequently mention in my podcasts and blog posts, including this one. This welcoming sign sits atop Fort Howe Saint John and the Supermoon Our easternmost destination was Saint John, New Brunswick, where we pulled in at sunset, a sight I’ll never forget. There was a “Supermoon” that week, which means the moon…
  • Brattleboro’s Culture Makes You Think

    Brattleboro’s culture is legendary. Even its chamber of commerce proclaims “the hippies have had a lasting influence on the town’s character and values.” Brattleboro KOA goats on leashes My friend Jill and I were there for a couple of days, so we were really able to get a sense of Brattleboro, and I can certify the chamber’s description. Walking down an alley, we just happened upon the musicians in the video at the top of this post. While the video is shaky (because I was walking), the trio was fantastic! I hadn’t seen someone play the washtub bass since I was…

    Sometimes the people I meet in my travels give me an unexpected glimpse of a life that I could also be living. For better and for worse. On my recent swing through New England, I visited Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts, known for its pedestrian-only Bridge of Flowers. 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. Today, over 500 varieties of annuals and perennials are planted along the 400-foot span, thanks to the work of volunteers. Yours…

    First Lieutenant Alonzo “Lon” Cushing was decorated with the nation’s highest military honor for his service at Gettysburg. The presentation was more than 150 years in  the making. A West Point graduate, during the era of Cushing’s service, the Medal was not presented to officers. He fought at Bull Run, Anteitum, Chancelorrsville, Fredericksburg and finally Gettysburg, where he was immortalized on the final day of the fight on July 3, 1863. At Cemetery Ridge during Picket’s Charge, Cushing was hit and badly wounded. His sergeant urged him to go to the rear but…

  • Big Oil Going Big In The Gulf Of Mexico

    27 Nov 2014 | 1:27 pm
    The oil industry is betting big on the Gulf of Mexico with both costs and production rising as a result. The Gulf has seen a bit of a resurgence in production this year, after declining from a peak in 2009. The oil industry extracted 1.7 million barrels per day on average in the summer of 2009, which fell to 1.2 million barrels per day last year (see chart. Data from EIA). But oil output is up around 15% since then, as the industry pours billions of dollars into the Gulf. The Wall Street Journal reported that several new projects from Royal Dutch…Read more...

    When Helge Lund takes over as CEO of BG Group in March 2015, he’ll be greeted with what sports economists call a “signing bonus” of $23.6 million as well as a salary of $22.07 million during his first year. That is unless investors in the British energy giant have their way. No one is denying the assessment by the British multinational energy company that Lund is “ideally suited” for the job, given his 10 years’ service as CEO of Norway’s Statoil.

    A confluence of factors helped U.S. equities rebound more than 12% from their October low, pushing valuations to their highest level since 2009. Besides extraordinary foreign central bank monetary stimulus (with the latest shot of adrenaline coming from China) and a fresh wave of mergers and acquisitions, I discuss in my new weekly commentary how low and stable U.S. interest rates are another significant driver of the rally. Income-oriented stocks have appreciated considerably and now appear overvalued as investors continue their reach for income in this low yield environment. Reasons why…

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.

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…

    By Chris Ebert It’s difficult to predict the future; some might say it’s impossible. The stock market, as with any process that involves predicting the future, is, as one might expect, very unpredictable. But unlike natural processes that are difficult to predict, for example predicting where and when a storm might strike, the stock market’s unpredictability is intentional. Whereas a storm may be unpredictable, the inability to forecast its path with 100% accuracy is a result only of a lack of data; the more data – the more accurate the prediction. That’s because, presumably, nobody…

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.

     You could arguably say the best thing about Thanksgiving is the food and the football. The long-standing tradition of watching a bowl game with your feet up and belly stuffed makes the holiday one of many people’s favorite. For those who’d like an extra dose of glutton on the already over-stuffed, over-served, and over-foodtoxicated holiday, I’m recommending the famous “turducken”.

    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.

    The first wave of pension statements has been sent out by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP). Approximately 18,000 people due to retire soon have now received their personalised forecasts which show how much they can expect to receive under the new single-tier pension system which comes into effect in April 2016. The new state pension will replace the current basic state pension and all other pension credits, SIPPS and other tops ups, making it a less complicated system. It is expected to be worth around £150 a week, although this is yet to be finalised.   However, only workers who…

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.

    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.

    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…

    With Thanksgiving here I'll mostly be catching up with paperwork over the rest of the week. The globex action this morning has been very interesting and profitable, but my expectations for the rest of the day aren't high. SPX turned in a 28th consecutive daily close above the 5 day MA, and though I've only been able to check this myself back to the beginning of 1962, I understand that is a new lifetime record for SPX since 1923, beating out the previous record of 27 closes above set in (cough) 1928. I'm certain that this move here is at least as much a sign of a healthy bull market as the…

    Indian equity markets got a big boost recently following a surprise rate cut last weekend by the Chinese central bank. The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) cut the one-year benchmark lending rate by 40 basis points to 5.6% and the deposit rate by 25 basis points to 2.75%.

    Tyler Durden: It is no secret that one of the primary drivers of relentless S&P 500 levitation over the past two years, ever since the start of Japan’s mammoth QE, has been the use of the Yen as the carry currency of choice (once again as during the credit bubble of the early-2000s), whose shorting has directly resulted in E-mini levitation. One look at the intraday chart of any JPY pair and the S&P500 is largely sufficient to confirm this. Those days, however, may be coming to an end, at least according to Goldman which overnight released a note saying that the Yen is…

  • App of the Week: Waze

    24 Nov 2014 | 11:35 am
    In North America, the holiday season is upon us and much of the stress equated with it is related to travel. Many people will head to the airports en masse to fly to relatives’ homes for their annual visit, but even more people will take to the roads for local travel to visit family and friends. One way to reduce stress while traveling by car is using one of my favorite apps, Waze.   We use apps every day and we expect them to deliver accurate information without fail. Navigation apps are no exception. I come from the land of urban sprawl and notoriously bad traffic—Los Angeles,…

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.

I believe however a pullback is coming. It is simply too hard to find great values in the market now. Many great companies are trading at values (P/E, P/S, BV) that are simply too high based on their financials. (I love Amazon but a 1400 P/E ratio is outrageous for almost any company.

In fact, one recent survey found that 61% of Canadians admitted worrying about their finances.

    As the costs of higher education have skyrocketed over the last few decades, more and more students have gone deeper into debt to finance their educations.  In Canada, the amount of government assistance for college educations has declined, forcing students to borrow even more. Typically, students borrow from multiple sources and consequently end up making monthly loan payments to several different lenders.  If you are having a hard time meeting your monthly bills you can reduce your total outlay by consolidating all your student loan consolidation into a single loan with a…

    Michael Lombardi, MBA

    The “trade” these days is very simple. Just follow what the central banks around the world say and you are pretty much guaranteed to make money. As long as they announce they are printing more paper money or lowering interest rates, then just buy stocks. This requires no thinking whatsoever and the fundamentals, like economic data and corporate earnings, don’t really matter. Look at the chart below of the Dow Jones Industrial Average over the past few months and pay attention to the green arrows.

    Mitchell Clark, B.Comm.

    One sector where there is continuing weakness is in farm and mining equipment sales. With farm incomes down from last year, large agricultural equipment is not selling as it was comparatively. And weak metal prices aren’t helping sales in the mining sector, either. Deere & Company (DE) just reported its financial results for its fiscal fourth quarter and fiscal year (ended October 31, 2014). The company reported a five-percent drop in global sales to $8.97 billion in its fourth quarter. Sales in the U.S. and Canada decreased a substantial 10%. Outside of North America, sales fell a more…

This is not going to change anytime soon, and we will likely see the income gap between the rich and poor expand even more over time. As an investor, you can readily benefit from the riches by playing the companies that benefit from the wealthy getting wealthier. I’m talking about the luxury brand stocks. Just take a look at high-end jeweler Tiffany & Co. (NYSE/TIF), a top player amid luxury brand stocks. The stock just traded at a record-high after reporting a strong four-percent rise in…

But the fact of the matter is that it’s a real possibility, no matter what the stock markets are saying. Normally, you can look at the stock market and see it as a barometer for how well the U.S. economy is doing. After all, the stock market is a forward-looking indicator. But there is a disconnect between Wall Street and Main Street. Since the U.S. stock market bottomed in March 2009, the New York Stock Exchange has climbed…

With the broader U.S. stock markets trading near record highs, it’s not a big surprise to hear that most analysts, economists, and investors are increasingly bullish about the stock market. The last thing you’d expect to hear is someone talking about a stock market crash in 2015. And why would they? After all, the stock market has been moving steadily higher since bottoming in March 2009.

    Jason Hartman joined us today to talk about the trends he sees in place for the coming year. More slow growth, lower home ownership rates and higher renterships to name just a few. That means higher worker mobility, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Lower inflation seems to be in the cards, but that can quickly change too. But don't worry, we'll have a new president in just two years and we'll see how 44 can really mess things up.

The low prices have not been great energy investments on Bay Street, but it has been great news at the pumps. It wasn’t clear whether OPEC’s decision could send gas prices at the pump down even further. Edmonton saw the price at the pumps fall below $1 this week, to 97.4 cents a litre.

    OPEC is all in and will continue to flood the globe with oil in an effort to bury the U.S. shale oil producer. OPEC will continue to produce over 30 million barrels a day adding to the globes 2 million barrel a day overproduction. Ali Naimi, the Saudi oil minister, must have made an incredible presentation showing the risk to the cartel by the increase in U.S. production so he convinced OPEC to go for broke. U.S. oil production is at a 30 year high and the fact that the U.S. is exporting condensate oil painted a very bleak picture for the future of the cartel. OPEC members will have no reason…

    Americans have seen a number of substantial data breaches since last year's holiday season, but that has not had a major effect on how they plan to pay for their items this Christmas. A new survey from TransUnion shows 80% of shoppers plan to spend money on their credit cards over the holidays, and 60% have little or no concern about how this spending will influence their credit. Similar to 2013, 82% of shoppers plan to spend more money this year compared to a year ago.

    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.

    Are binary options a scam?  Well, sort of.  Not really.  Maybe.  The image problem plaguing binary options is well known by most traders.  Brokers will cheat their customers and make winning trades account in the P/L as losers later, and clients have know recourse for these offshore scam artists. Even though the issue is not widespread amongst brokerages, it doesn’t take many bad apples to give an entire industry a bad name.  Look at the US banking industry.  This is one of the greatest success stories in the history of worldwide enterprises, one of the most regulated industries…

  • Nuclear Technology and Islamic States

    Janet Tavakoli
    16 Nov 2014 | 8:29 am
    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.

    In September 2014, Tavakoli asked His Excellency Iyad bin Amin Madani, Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), why criminals from so many different countries and cultures continue to band together in the name of Islam to commit mayhem and murder authorized by the highest levels of Islamic clergy. He dodged the question. Unveiled Threat is her response based on her personal experiences and study of the roots of terrorism.

It was a good thing Ferguson reminded Holder about New Jersey, and it was timely that James Woods reminded him about equal justice under law, otherwise we might have a two-tiered system of justice where connections and campaign contributions can ensure immunity from criminal prosecution.

    admin
    20 Nov 2014 | 2:51 am
    The world has gone through a lot in the past decade. World economies have come to the brink and nearly toppled over the cliff, dragging the rest of the human race with them. It has taken us a long time, but we can finally see some signs of improvement. However, attempting to predict what the global economy will look like in 2015 is very much like trying to guess how the weather will look like a week from now. While you could use all tools and raw date available to man to attempt to predict weather patterns, the truth of the matter is that predicting the future is not an exact science. You are…

    How to Use Your Pension to Reduce Your Tax Bill Incredibly there are now more than 4 million people in the UK who qualify to pay the higher rate of tax (at a not-to-be-scoffed-at 40%). But what many of those higher rate taxpayers do not realise is that they could possibly avoid being caught by the higher rate altogether if they put more of their earnings into their pensions contributions pot. 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.

    One of the most common credit scores used by credit bureaus is the FICO Score. FICO stands for Fair Isaac Corporation, the company that developed the scoring system used by most lenders to make their credit decisions. The FICO score ranges from 300 to 850 and is based on the data found in the credit reports of credit reporting agencies. While FICO has not revealed exactly how they come up with the calculations, it has provided the categories that comprise your credit score.

    While it wouldn’t be fair to say that credit cards are the bane of civilization, there are real disadvantages to using them if you’re not careful. One of the most dangerous of these is that plastic money makes it easy for you to overspend. The convenience with which credit cards can be swiped is what makes it so prone to abuse. If you don’t have the discipline to control your spending, you can easily accumulate heavy credit card debt. The second disadvantage is also related to the first. When you rack up too much debt and can only make the minimum payments each month, your original…

    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…

  • Understanding The Mechanics Of The 0% Long-Term Capital Gains Tax Rate: How To Harvest Capital Gains For A Free Step-Up In Basis!

    Michael Kitces
    26 Nov 2014 | 4:01 am
    For “lower income” individuals whose income falls within the bottom two ordinary income tax brackets, the Internal Revenue Code applies a 0% long-term capital gains rate to the extent their gains also fall within the lower two brackets. However, the 0% rate only applies as long as the income actually does fall within those lower brackets – which means “too much” in capital gains will eventually cross out of the 0% rate and into the higher tax brackets. Nonetheless, the potential for 0% long-term capital gains rates means that for those who are eligible, the best thing they can do…
  • Will Financial Planners Be Forced To Reduce Or Unbundle AUM Fees As The Price Of Beta Goes To Zero?

    Michael Kitces
    24 Nov 2014 | 4:01 am
    As ETFs and indexing makes the raw cost of “owning the market” cheaper and cheaper, the question arises of whether or how advisors can continue to justify an ongoing AUM fee for an investment portfolio. For some, the cost is justified by the alpha or portfolio-related “advisor gamma” value-adds that are provided; for others, the benefit is the inclusion of financial planning services; and for the rest, the benefit may just be to help protect clients from themselves and their self-imposed “behavior gap” on returns. Yet the reality is that AUM fees are far more relevant for some of…

  • 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.

    Thanksgiving isn't just about turkey.  It's about women going shopping and men being lazy, for most Americans.  It's really all about Alfidi Capital laying the smack-down on everything that does not comport with extreme genius. I give thanks for not living in some smelly dirt-hole country like the ones at the bottom of the Transparency International and Heritage Foundation indexes.  Those are the filters I use to sort out the resource sector companies I evaluate, much as a master chef uses a strainer to drain the brine away from a pot of pasta.

    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…

    Do you stay glued to the daily ups and downs of stock prices? Do you wonder what to conclude from the prices, fluctuating every now and then? Do you hope to make a windfall on the hot new stock you bought? And yet, things don’t go as you want. Trust me; this can be simply termed as human misjudgement of the underlying value. What is a stock? It’s a small piece of business. What does that mean? Simply, that you own the earnings and the cash flows that the business generates from time to time. To give you an evident analogy, the dividend on the stock is similar to rent you receive on your…
  • Nifty above 7900, should you still be buying? Nifty@MRP gives you the answer…

    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.

  • OPEC and the Logic of Low Oil Prices

    Jack Rivkin
    24 Nov 2014 | 11:51 am
    OPEC has an important meeting on November 27th.  The market seems to be anticipating that, at “worst”, there will be a floor put under Brent around the current levels or, at “best”, prices will start trending up toward what the oil analysts view as the “natural” long run price of $95-$100 per barrel. All seem to believe that this is solely in the hands of Saudi Arabia. It very well may be. In my view, whatever comes out of the meeting will be temporary and prices are becoming more inclined to seek a “natural” price level determined by supply and demand for energy…
  • German Exceptionalism? An Illusion About to be Laid Bare

    Bob Barbera
    11 Nov 2014 | 11:51 am
    I have known Bob Barbera since his days as one of the best Wall Street economists, particularly during his time at Lehman in the late “80’s/early 90’s. He continues to share his knowledge with the faculty and students at Johns Hopkins (and a limited number of clients and friends). I asked Bob for his thoughts on the world, particularly as it relates to the most recent expansion (a mild term) of QE in Japan. His thoughts focus on the broader impact on Europe–specifically Germany—, but also, the rest of the world. Dr. Barbera makes some interesting points about China and growth…

In addition, Andy Redleaf, Founder and CEO, always has something unique to say in his broader comments in the letter. He recently wrote a very interesting essay titled “Two Cheers for GAAP.” It is a timeless piece pointing out the growing use of “adjusted earnings” and to some extent the ultimate return by investors to GAAP…

Plus, we are finding ourselves in the midst of a significant increase in volatility and some major selling across several asset classes.

    Identity theft is at an all-time high and those who make a profession in the trucking industry are especially vulnerable to the exploitations. The Internet may be a great tool for today’s world, but it has also made it very easy for the rather unscrupulous people to figure out more ways to take advantage of those who make an honest living.  There are several different scenarios in the trucking world for those who would try and take advantage of those who wouldn’t.

  • Four Proven Ways Trucking Companies Can Improve Their Cash Flow

    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.

    The Australian contract for difference and exchange-traded fund markets continued in its expansion this year as more and more investors are searching for much greater or at least more predictable returns that can be created by traditional equities. Investors have been seemingly ensnared to these two very distinct products since they can see another means in lowering their cost while achieving similar returns in the case of ETFs, whereas with CFDs, they can feel that they can manufacture wealth through market volatility in stocks, commodities and currencies. The growth in the ETF market has…

    The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) made a surprise announcement on Friday that they will lower interest rates for the first time since 2012. The move indicates a shift of strategy by Beijing as concerns mount over rising debt and weaker growth in the world’s second largest economy. One-year benchmark lending rates will be lowered by 40 basis points to 5.6%, and one-year benchmark deposit rates will be cut by 25 basis points to 2.75%, according to the Chinese central bank.  The change comes after several months of targeted measures failed to ease borrowing costs for smaller businesses.

The AEC aims to transform the ten member states of ASEAN (The Association of Southeast Asian Nations) into a single economic union by 2015.

The railway will link China with many other countries in Southeast Asia and eventually, even Europe. The rail system in Laos is still undeveloped, and its 3.5 kilometer-long railroad, single train station, and low capacity has mostly been used to ferry tourists into the country from the Thai border town of Nongkhai.
