    By Chris Ebert If a stock-market participant only knows two things about the options market, these are the two most important truths: Covered Call trading is only unprofitable in a Bear market Long Call trading is only profitable in a Bull market. Of course, the strike prices, expiration dates and holding time of the Call options will have an effect, to some degree. Nevertheless, those two basic rules stand the test of time. Call options are a wonderfully simple and effective indicator for individual stocks as well as the stock market as a whole. If one gets a little more specific with the…

  • Calling Into Question

    John Mauldin
    16 Oct 2014 | 2:51 pm
    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…

    “In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is” – Yogi Berra, as cited by Ben Hunt in today’s Outside the Box. Or, to put it in macroeconomic terms, “Why is global growth so disappointing?” In the aftermath of the Great Recession, fearing a deflationary equilibrium (which, as Ben notes, is macroeconomic-speak for falling into a well, breaking your leg, at night, alone), the Fed bought trillions of dollars in assets … and saved the world. Sort of. If you don’t count the reckoning yet to come. The theory was…

Whether Nadella’s plans for Microsoft succeed, it’s clear the company is dramatically different from the Microsoft that ruled the technology industry in the 80s and 90s.

However, it doesn’t mean we are unable to create a budget that will ensure that we meet all of our obligations, at the same time, allowing extra money for fun. It all boils down to organization.

    Many people have talked about many types of income oriented funds and in many cases, they do not have a bright future ahead, there are some income based mutual funds that are even better than lower risk equity funds.

There are many people who have no choice but to own high income funds, yielding high interest rate, and threatening the recent, strong performance, that a lot of these funds enjoyed. Not all the…

    Wal-Mart is considering whether to match online prices during the holiday shopping season, a move the retail giant has long resisted but that many of its brick-and-mortar competitors have embraced year-round. The Wall Street Journal reported that move is one of several Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT) could implement this year, though company officials are concerned such a nationwide program would cut too deeply into earnings.

    As of today, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has erased all of its gains this year. We’re not quite in “market correction” territory, though. The S&P 500 is still up year-to-date, but it isn’t presenting as fantastic a return as was evident earlier in the year. We could be getting to the point where the market finds itself in the midst of a market correction. I wouldn’t pretend to be able to predict the daily, weekly, monthly, or annual swings of the stock market, but there’s no reason to rule a correction out as a possibility. Investing professionals…

    27 Oct 2014 | 2:32 am
    In a little while, I will be rolling out a feature that examines the relative performance of various segments of markets as a bottom-up way of understanding and anticipating macro themes that are important to the longer-term trajectories of markets.  An example of such bottom-up analysis is reflected in the relative performance of sectors within the stock market.Is tech leading market performance, while defensive sectors lag?  That is one kind of market.  Are we seeing outperformance from consumer cyclical companies relative to consumer discretionary ones?  That is a…

  • Market Overcome Fear of Plague

    Roger Nusbaum
    27 Oct 2014 | 2:06 pm
    This week’s market update is posted at Alpha Baskets and includes the following; One of the biggest news stories of the week was of course the earnings report from Amazon which led investors to take more than 8% out of the name in Friday’s trading. We figure that if you care about the earnings report you’ve already read everything to need to on it but we did want to pass along this quote from Barron’s regarding the Fire phone which the weekly noted “couldn’t have sold worse if it came with a rotary dial.” Please click through to read the entire update.
  • What ‘Yukon Men’ Teaches Us About Retirement Planning

    Roger Nusbaum
    24 Oct 2014 | 7:39 am
    For many years we have been looking at the extent to which more and more people will need to fill retirement income gaps in increasingly innovative ways. I’ve shared all sorts of examples of this because I think it can be helpful and because it is fun to learn about the way in which other people figure out their own solution. So one of the dozens of shows about Alaska is about this very subject although none of the people consider themselves to be retired, obviously from the title you know I am talking about Yukon Men. From the post; The concepts of independence, resourcefulness and…
  • Wrong, Too Early, Does It Matter?

    Roger Nusbaum
    23 Oct 2014 | 8:03 am
    My latest post at Alpha Baskets looks at a bit of a hatchet job on economists who warned of dire consequences from QE and how they appear to have been wrong. Would they say they are just early? Some would, and have said that. The better question is why were they “wrong” or what if they were just early? Technically speaking that is possible. If that is possible then it is something to keep in mind for the future. From the post; Headline inflation certainly has not been problematic, if anything it is arguably too low and the US dollar has gotten stronger as QE has gone on. Actually…

  • A Filing Means What It Says

    Bob Lawless
    30 Oct 2014 | 3:20 pm
    Almost two weeks ago now, the Delaware Supreme Court handed down its decision over J.P. Morgan's mistaken termination statement in the General Motors bankruptcy. (Note to Google Chrome users like me -- the link may not work; try a different web browser.)  I think they got it right, but to understand why, one obviously needs to know the facts. Melissa Jacoby has blogged about the case (especially) here and here. As Melissa explains in more detail in the former post, the case revolves a mistaken Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) filing by JPMorgan Chase.  To really stylize the facts,…

    Bob Lawless
    27 Oct 2014 | 2:34 pm
    I am obsessively interested in two things -- bankruptcy and Formula One auto racing. I feed the first interest through this blog. The second interest is tended to by watching way, way too much Formula One on television. Indeed, the best way to wind me up is to ask me if Formula One is the same as Nascar. This weekend, my worlds collided when two Formula 1 teams -- Caterham and Marussia (shown to the right) --were placed in administration in the U.K., a procedure akin to chapter 11. I was going to resist doing a post, but now that Pat Fitzgerald over at Bankruptcy Beat has posted a story, I…
  • QRM's Missed Opportunities for Financial Stability and Servicing Reform

    Adam Levitin
    24 Oct 2014 | 8:24 am
    There are three major new regulations shaping the housing finance market:  QM (qualified mortgage), QRM (qualified residential mortgage) and Reg X.  QM is a safe harbor from the statutory ability-to-repay requirement that applies to all mortgages.  QRM is a safe harbor from the statutory risk retention requirement that applies to mortgage securitization.  And Reg X are the new mortgage servicing regulations.  It's important to understand how these three regulations interact and how they're going to affect the housing finance market.  (There's also new TILA/RESPA…
  • Credit Risk Retention Rules and QRM

    Adam Levitin
    22 Oct 2014 | 6:43 pm
    The long awaited credit risk retention rules for securitization are out. The big question--whether the qualified residential mortgage or QRM exemption would be narrower than the CFPB's qualified mortgage or QM safe harbor to the Ability to Repay requirement for mortgages is no. QRM=QM. The short version is that the rule doesn't require meaningful credit risk retention where it counts, and imposes significant market-shaping safe-harbor requirements where skin in the game isn't so important. The basic rule is that 5% credit risk must be retained, unhedged, by the securitization…

    Yves Smith has had some great coverage of the AIG bailout trail over on Naked Capitalism.  While the litigation, as Yves has characterized it, is a bit like a brawl between the ugly stepsisters, it's telling us all kinds of stuff we didn't know (or at least couldn't document) about the 2008-09 bailouts.    Today's coverage is a must-read piece by Matt Stoller about the civil service regulatory capture at the Fed, as personified by its general counsel.  The AIG trial has highlighted some of the worldview problems at the Fed. It has also included some jaw-dropping…

    Market indices continue to act well as morning weakness is met with strong buying; the type of action you want to see. The S&P 500 gained 0.62% and the NASDAQ 0.37%. There was some good economic data as the Commerce Department reported gross domestic product grew at a 3.5% annual rate in the third quarter, bolstered by a smaller trade deficit and a rise in defense spending.

    It was a generally quiet day for the markets, especially considering it was a Fed day which usually leads to a lot of volatility. Big picture, we've regained almost all of recent losses in the major indexes but stand short term overbought. A bit of rest would be healthy. The S&P 500 fell 0.14% and the NASDAQ 0.33%.

    With a fabulous forecast in the region this week and weekend, I’m headed to the Smoky Mountains! Nothing like fresh air, beautiful scenery—hopefully some local apples—to invigorate the soul! If you headed to the Smokies and are interested in camping at the beautiful KOA in Cherokee, North Carolina, good news: I called and learned that primitive cabins OFF the river are still available and there are plenty of deluxe cabins ON the river. We stayed in a deluxe cabin earlier this summer and loved it. Cherokee events The Museum of the Cherokee Indian always has great programs and this…
  • Ted Simon: Lessons about Purposeful Travel

    Tamela Rich
    26 Oct 2014 | 7:09 am
    I spent last week at the beach with my spouse. I enjoy sitting at the water’s edge as I read, write, contemplate and doze, but I’m not often in the water past my knees. When Matt takes his fishing pole out to the surf, I fall into a lull watching him cast, reel in and repeat. It usually induces rumination. One of those ruminations was the way travel leaves its imprint on you and how a purposeful traveler can leave the world a better place. Ted Simon, solo globetrotter sans GPS Lots of folks travel to expand their life’s purpose and find greater meaning in their lives.
  • Thoughts on Self-Care and Re-launching Your Life

    Tamela M. Rich
    23 Oct 2014 | 7:26 am
    This past Saturday I was privileged to keynote the North Carolina Occupational Therapy Association‘s Fall Conference. They asked me to address the question of self-care, since occupational therapists, like many people in the “helping professions,” very often find themselves emotionally fatigued by the work they also find to be satisfying. Far too many leave themselves no energy for themselves and their families. Imagine yourself in their shoes: helping patients relearn how to do things like dress themselves after a stroke, or feed themselves after a car accident that…
  • What’s behind the Haunted House at Creekside Manor?

    16 Oct 2014 | 6:36 am
    I occasionally contribute to the KOA (Kampgrounds of America) blog. Last year, I was speaking at a Maryland cancer event and got a tip that a nearby campground operated a haunted house with a regional draw. I agreed to check it out, surprised by how much haunted houses have changed since I went through one (ahem) 30+ years ago. The genesis of Creekside Manor When John and Judy Durham bought a house beside their 26-acre campground in Williamsport, Maryland, they never imagined that ghosts were already in residence. They intended to renovate and live in it, but during the renovations, they…

    Tamela M. Rich
    14 Oct 2014 | 3:37 pm
    Everyone knows someone with cancer or another life-threatening illness, but few of us know how to talk about it.  Researching my book, Live Full Throttle: Life Lessons From Friends Who Faced Cancer, I interviewed more than 100 people who have faced one of life’s ultimate sinkholes. They told me stories about everything—from how the disease altered the trajectory of their lives to how a cancer diagnosis changes the simple act of human conversation. Here is what I learned: while we all know someone with cancer or another life-threatening illness, few of us know how to talk about it.

  • How Long Can The Shale Revolution Last?

    29 Oct 2014 | 4:36 pm
    A new study has cast serious doubt on whether the much-ballyhooed U.S. shale oil and gas revolution has long-term staying power.The U.S. produced 8.5 million barrels of oil per day in July of this year -- 60 percent more than just three years earlier. That is also the highest rate of production in three decades. Put another way, since 2011, the U.S. has added 3 million barrels per day in additional capacity to global supplies. Had that volume not come online, oil prices would surely be much higher than they currently are. That has “revolutionized”…Read more...

    Point of sale systems are the financial focal point of a retail business. They are the hub of activity in any retail store. It is no wonder, therefore, that companies are wary to adopt new standards for its point of sale machines and services. Recently, innovations in the creation of apps to deal with point of sale services have made the iPad a surprising contender in the field of point of sale systems.

    Following a very strong finish last week, the bulls managed to stick around on Wall Street over the past five trading days. The FOMC statement took center stage, which again served as a reminder that policymakers will remain accommodative in light of persistently sluggish growth and low inflation. On the data release front, investors cheered on better-than-expected GDP while worse-than-expected durable goods orders from earlier in the week failed to inspire profit taking pressures [see also Global X Debuts Two JPMorgan ETFs].

    If you are in or near retirement, you know it’s been hard earning income on your investments in recent years. Unfortunately, I don’t see it getting much easier in the next few years. I expect the 10-year Treasury yield to finish the year between 2.5% and 2.75% and to trend higher to 3% over the intermediate term. However, while I do expect long-term rates in the United States to climb modestly in the near future, interest rates are likely to remain historically low for an extended period of time.

    Here is a look at ETFs that currently offer attractive short selling opportunities. The ETFs included in this list are rated as sell candidates for two reasons. 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.

    I am delighted to be speaking on November 20th in Rockville, Maryland about the importance of mentoring inside a busy CPA firm. Mentoring is an important part of the succession plan for any firm or company. So much about mentoring has changed. It is not the old fashioned system where a successful, powerful male taps a mini-me on the shoulder and guides him through the mine fields of climbing the corporate ladder. There are 4 levels of mentoring inside an accounting firm: Guide, Coach, Mentor and Sponsor – each one is important and helps set the stage for career success. How healthy is…

    David Merkel
    25 Oct 2014 | 9:13 pm
    Photo Credit: 401(K) 2012 No one knows their financial “risk tolerance” outside of the context of losing money.  Part of the trouble is that risk and return are often described in the same breath as if they are inseparable, when they are more weakly related than most think, and certainly not linear. Surveys, no matter how well-intentioned or -designed do not typically grasp the asymmetry of gain and loss.  People feel losses much more acutely than gains, and are far more likely to change their behavior after losses.  Can’t tell you how many times I have had…

If the reaction is positive, the market will be bumping up against the all-time high. I don't want to buy calls up here and this could be a blow-off rally that results in a reversal. If the reaction is negative, the Fed might have added a few new wrinkles. They might reference disinflation. Any market decline …

    Posted 9:15 AM ET - The market started on a weak note and the S&P traded in negative territory the entire day. Stocks did find a bid and they clawed their way back Monday. Fortunately, the little boy in New York tested negative for Ebola. This disease is the primary dark cloud that hangs over the market. As long as it is contained, the market will rally. Japan posted stronger-than-expected retail sales (2.7%). Durable goods orders were weaker than expected. The FOMC will release its statement tomorrow.

  • The Market Bounce Is Over Extended - A New Ebola Case In NY Will Spark Selling

    pete@oneoption.com
    27 Oct 2014 | 11:53 am
    Posted 9:50 AM ET - Last week, the market rebounded sharply and we closed above the 100-day moving average on Friday. This bounce is overextended and we could see some profit-taking today. A new Ebola case in New York City has investors spooked. It is impossible to predict the amount of fear that this deadly disease can generate. All I can say is that it will probably get worse before it gets better. The rest of the macro puzzle pieces are in place for a year-end rally. Economic conditions in Europe are slipping, but they are not falling off of a …

    Posted 9:30 AM ET - Yesterday, the S&P 500 rallied right up to the 100-day moving average and it hit resistance. We've rallied more than 100 points in the last week and this bounce might be getting a little tired. New York City has its first Ebola case and the S&P 500 was down 10 points a few hours ago. It has gradually clawed its way back and officials believe they have it under control. Ebola will get worse before it gets better and we can expect shocks like this. European bank stress test results will be released this weekend. Analysts …

The proxy advisory firm recently released draft versions of proposals to revise its voting recommendation policies in a number of governance areas for a handful of countries.

Some say it says money is evil and others claim it says God wants His followers to be wealthy. Neither is quite true. Often, people have these opinions based in misquoted or misinterpreted verses. This results in people thinking of the Bible and money being like oil and water and do not mix. The Bible has a lot to say about money, both good and bad. In 1 Timothy 6:10, it says “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered…

    27 Oct 2014 | 10:22 am
    Hi Erica, In 2013, I visited CreditCardGuide.com to get a credit card for my very bad credit. I am pleased to say that I got one, no problem, even though my scores were less than 500. I have been doing well with this card (secured by the way), and I went from a credit limit of $300 to one of $1,500 without even asking. Erica, I never keep a balance, just as you said. Not once have I paid interest. I'm now in the market for a car, so I checked my score and was shocked to see that it is 762, high enough to get the car with best financing. Questions: Should I apply for a better credit card…

    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…

    According to a recent survey, more than 200,000 people are planning to take full advantage of the new pension reforms coming into effect next April, and are planning to cash in their entire pension pot. The Chancellor, George Osborne announced earlier this year that as of April 2015 anyone with a defined contribution pension will be able to access their entire nest egg without having to purchase an annuity.     Whilst this freedom will undoubtedly please many workers, there are concerns within the industry that this may create a new mis-selling scandal.

    According to a recent survey by a finance technology company, True Potential, pension savers feel they will need a retirement income of more than £23,000 to live a comfortable life. However, this is much lower than the average pension will be paying out in retirement.    True Potential surveyed more than 8,000 people and found that people estimated that they could live well on a retirement income of £23,457 a year, but the average private or workplace pension will only be paying out £6,011 a year leaving a massive gap between expectation and reality. Even including the state pension into…

    According to a recent survey by Partnership, almost two-thirds of people over the age of 40 will still be paying off their mortgages in retirement. The escalation of house prices coupled with increased remortgaging activity has meant that many middle aged home owner will have to find enough money in retirement to continue paying their mortgage.    Of people currently in their 40s around one in four expect to still be paying off their mortgages when they retire, 42% said they thought they wouldn’t have got onto the property ladder and would still be paying rent.

  • Further Pension Freedom Plans to be Announced

    wendy
    14 Oct 2014 | 1:46 am
    The Treasury is to announce further freedom plans to the way you can access your pension pots. Currently, once a person reaches the age of 55 they can take a one-off lump sum to the value of 25% of their private or workplace defined contribution pension tax-free, which most people do once they first retire. Under the new rules, savers will be able to withdraw money from their pension pots whenever they want – without having to purchase an annuity product. However, until now the 25% tax-free lump sum could only be used once. In future, any withdrawal taken from the pension pot will see the…

    30 Oct 2014 | 6:27 am
    One reason I do my optic run views on my seven main US equity indices is because while SPX is often the technical leader, by which I mean not that it moves fastest, but that it is delivering the cleanest trendlines/patterns and fibonacci retracements, that is not always the case. That leader at the moment is the Dow Industrials, and my first two charts will illustrate why that is. The rising wedge on SPX that I tweeted on Tuesday night hit the very well defined wedge resistance (tweeted at the high yesterday) and then broke down on the frankly very predictable not really news that QE3 had…

    The Fed has finally ended its six-year long quantitative easing program assuming that the economy will not need any meaningful assistance at the current level. Not only this, the Fed also showed increased confidence in the potency of the labor market. Though the Fed has reaffirmed that the key interest rate will be kept at the record low level for a ‘considerable time’, the investing world has started speculating over the timing of the destined rate hike (also see Play Rising Rates with These ETFs).

    Mike Burnick: Yesterday, the Federal Reserve followed through on its well-telegraphed intent to end quantitative easing (QE) as planned this month. Now investors wonder how this milestone will impact markets, if at all. Just to recap the recent history of Fed money-printing; QE1 was hatched by then Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke during the darkest days of the 2008 financial crisis, and later expanded to include purchases of Treasury bonds, mortgage-backed securities (MBS) and government agency debt from 2009 to 2010.

To mark the end of QE3, let’s take a look at what has happened in the equity markets in the past few years. While many argue that easy money has pushed investors further out on the risk spectrum, that would imply that investors are paying entirely too much for returns. While the Shiller PE is above its historical average, it’s not necessarily indicative of an overheated market or an imminent crash. Investors are…

Given the fragile nature of the U.S. economy, Eurozone economy and indeed the global economy, Fed critics continue to believe that this may be a short term hiatus prior to a resumption of QE, if asset prices start to fall or economic growth falters. Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan admitted yesterday to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), that QE and the Fed’s bond buying program, which aimed to lower unemployment and spur stronger economic growth, fell…

They have a “bewildering” effect on people, says Howard Rachlin, a professor emeritus of psychology at Stony Brook University. So we tend to lump them together; 1 in 10,000 sounds just as bewildering as 1 in 100,000.

  • Modern Travel Blunders and How to Stay Off of the Guilty List

    Candice Vu
    30 Oct 2014 | 5:49 am
    After the Great Reclining War of 2014 that diverted a Denver-bound flight to Chicago and delayed it by one hour and 38 minutes, poor travel manners that have been long apparent to airline crews and airport staff were brought into the public eye. We’ve all been there, caught in a game of arm rest “chicken” with our neighbors and exhausted by the powerful kicks of a six-year-old seated in the row behind. Are we all bothered by the same issues while traveling? We all have our top travel annoyances, but what affects us the most? We examine shared travel pet peeves and survey advice from…

    While you were sleeping two Sundays ago, five people made their way to the airport and onto a plane. They took off, touched down again, and then piled into an RV. But they weren’t on vacation. They were on a mission to give you visibility into your mobile spend.   They’re the people behind Visage Mobile, and they’re so relentlessly passionate about visibility into mobility data they had to go on tour last week to tell more people about it. Right now, they’re most excited about their VisagePulse service, which launched about six months ago and delivers a monthly report of mobile…

    Last week, we advised executives to embrace social media and outlined the benefits of doing so. But October is also the time to indulge our fears in ghouls, goblins and scream-worthy horror stories, so why not look to social media for some examples?   We have all heard about the employee who accidentally tweeted something offensive from the company twitter handle and was fired, or the fashion designer who tried to capitalize on a trending philanthropic hashtag and created a PR backlash. But what about the companies who recover well? How can you avoid these horror stories or clean up the…
  • 3 Expense-Related Facts High-Tech Companies Can’t Afford to Ignore

    29 Oct 2014 | 7:54 am
    Expense management is an area of concern for all companies, regardless of industry. But there are certain industries where a more refined approach to business intelligence reporting is required. High technology is one of these industries. Here are three high-tech expense management facts company leaders should know about. Fact #1: The high-tech workforce is young, digital, dispersed, and in demand According to PayScale, the median age of workers at many high-tech companies is less than 35.

    I am as big a stock market bull as anyone. The market has had a great run over the past few years and investors who stayed the course have made a great deal of money. 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.

    I have written many articles citing the benefits of long term investing over short term investing. Beating the market over the short term is simply too difficult for most investors to do. It is close to impossible to time the market. Most long time traders only have minimal success at buying low and selling high over the course of a few days. Long term investing gives the average investor the opportunity to make solid profits and reduces the emotional stress of watching the market day to day.

    Financial problems are some of the most stressful issues people face. At one point or another, most of us deal with money issues. In fact, one recent survey found that 61% of Canadians admitted worrying about their finances. Part of this stress comes from the fact that financial problems often snowball into more serious problems, from not being able to pay the bills to going deep into debt.

    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…

    David L. Smith
    3 Sep 2014 | 8:07 am
    The problem with debt is that it often gets much worse before it gets better. If you’re in really deep, you’ll struggle to make ends meet, creditors may begin harassing you and you’ll begin to wonder if you’ll ever be able to turn things around. But no matter how bad things get, people tend to […] The post Bankruptcy: Fresh Start or Disaster? appeared first on Personal Bankruptcy Canada.

  • National Debt Rising 2.3 Times Faster than Budget Deficit?

    Michael Lombardi, MBA
    29 Oct 2014 | 12:50 am
    For the U.S. government’s fiscal year ended September 30, 2014, the government registered a budget deficit of $483 billion—the lowest budget deficit since 2007. In fiscal 2013, the budget deficit was $680 billion. In each of the previous four fiscal years, it was more than $1.0 trillion per annum. (Source: U.S. Department of the Treasury, October 15, 2014.) On the surface, this is great news. And logically, one would think, the lower the budget deficit, the slower the growth of the national debt. If the budget deficit comes in at $100 billion, for example, the government will have to…
  • Two Companies in the “Buy Zone” on Weaker Oil?

    Mitchell Clark, B.Comm.
    29 Oct 2014 | 12:49 am
    It really is quite amazing the amount that spot oil prices have dropped. Naturally, in a lot of areas, the price of gasoline has not dropped the same percentage. Lower oil prices help a lot of industries. The railroads and airlines, for instance, should show a material gain in earnings in the fourth quarter due to the drop in fuel costs. It’s not a game-changer for oil producers just yet, but The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (GS), which is pretty good with its views on commodities, is now forecasting $75.00 West Texas Intermediate (WTI) oil for most of 2015—with oil prices maybe even hitting…
  • India Buying 450% More Gold?

    Michael Lombardi, MBA
    27 Oct 2014 | 6:38 am
    The demand and supply situation for gold bullion, something I’ve often talked about in these pages, has taken a new course…one very favorable to gold bulls like me. Gold buying in India is up 450% in the first nine months of 2014 compared to the first nine months of 2013. (Source: Government of India, October 14, 2014.) The jump in gold bullion buying in India is related to the easing of restrictions on gold imports into the country by the Indian government in 2014. The buying of gold bullion in China continues to be strong. And world central banks are increasing their gold reserves, too.
  • 3Q14 Earnings Results Suggest Strength into 2015?

    Mitchell Clark, B.Comm.
    27 Oct 2014 | 6:38 am
    Corporate earnings are flooding in, and while there are always disappointments—typically in not meeting Wall Street expectations—the numbers are pretty good. The stock market was relieved when conglomerates started reporting. 3M Company (MMM) saw its share price pop almost five percent higher after beating estimates and reporting a solid improvement in U.S. market demand. I continue to like this position for long-term, income-seeking investors. (See “Off-the-Radar Company Delivering Attractive Earnings.”) The company reported record third-quarter sales growing a modest 2.8%…
  • Strategies for Investing in These Chaotic Markets

    George Leong, B.Comm.
    24 Oct 2014 | 1:12 pm
    Here we go again. Just when the stock market is moving lower and forecasting a potential correction, we see buying emerging, driving the bears back to the woods. The reality is that I was looking for the S&P 500 to potentially correct 10%, down to around 1,792, something that has not materialized in about two years. It would, in my view, represent a good buying opportunity to accumulate shares at a discount. Yet despite declining as much as seven percent, the S&P 500 just couldn’t give up, staging a bounce-back. So here we are with the S&P 500 breaking back above its key 200-day…

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.

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…

    30 Oct 2014 | 3:15 am
    I was listening to a podcast last month, and the question came up of how much of your time is spent in “reactive mode” vs. “proactive mode.” That really hit home since it’s something I’ve been wrestling with lately, and a challenge I believe all side hustlers are faced with. I’ve found myself in “reactive” mode quite a bit, delivering work for clients, answering email, fulfilling other people’s demands on my time. And all that is totally fine, because it pays. But it doesn’t “scale”… Check out the entire article here:…

  • What Are Capital Gains?

    admin
    30 Oct 2014 | 6:51 am
    Most of us are used to paying tax on our salary – income tax – but many people don’t realize that you also have to pay taxes when you sell something can make a profit. For example, if you buy a $100,000 cottage, and then sell it a few years later for $130,000, then you have to pay tax on the $30,000 gain. This is known as a capital gain, and is subject to capital gains tax. Items subject to capital gains Any capital asset that you own is subject to capital gains. To clarify this, a capital asset is just about anything that you own and use, whether that is an investment or something for…

    If you want to know whether you’re likely to be approved for a loan, mortgage or credit card, then it’s important to check your credit. However, many people are confused when they find out that they have both a credit report and a credit score. While these two are related, they are not the same thing. Credit history Your credit history is just what it says it is – it’s a history of everything that could potentially affect your credit.

    Death is not something that most of us like to think about. However, it’s important to make sure that people who depend on you and your income will be taken care of should the unthinkable happen. The problem is that many people struggle to figure out exactly how much life insurance they need, and end up buying too little or too much. Do you need life insurance? The first thing to ask yourself is whether or not life insurance is really necessary. If nobody depends on your income, then you may not need life insurance at all. As long as you have enough set aside to pay any outstanding debts…

    There’s nothing more worrying than finding out that someone has stolen your credit card. Perhaps you reached for your wallet and found that it wasn’t there. Or, perhaps someone broke into your car and stole the credit card you keep in your glove compartment.

    Ask the average retail investor, and they will tell you that a mutual fund is a mainstream type of investment, whereas a hedge fund is something far more exotic and risky. However, most are hard pressed to explain in the exact differences, perhaps because relatively few investors have experience with hedge funds. So, exactly what are the similarities and differences? Both are managed portfolios Both types of funds invest in multiple securities – in other words, they manage investment portfolio.

    Michael Kitces

    Many who have known me over the years, and my involvement in both the profession at large and the FPA in particular, were surprised by my article earlier this week criticizing the FPA for its actions and direction in recent years. However, the truth is that these realities – my involvement in the FPA, and my criticism of the organization – are not at odds. In fact, the entire purpose of my article was to recognize the challenges the FPA faces (publicly, as I’ve already voiced these concerns privately to FPA leadership in the past), to encourage a frank discussion of those challenges,…

  • Could The FPA’s Waning Power Given Its Declining Market Share Of CFP Certificants Lead To Its Untimely Demise?

    Michael Kitces
    27 Oct 2014 | 4:01 am
    Since the merger of the IAFP and the ICFP over 14 years ago, the FPA has faced trying times. Amidst a backdrop of aging advisor demographics, a growing tide of retirees, and a declining total headcount of financial advisors, the FPA has never managed to grow materially beyond its peak membership on the day it was born, and since the 2008 recession was suffered from a 17% decline in membership and a 36% decline in revenue. Yet the reality is that notwithstanding the difficult environment, the number of CFP certificants has nearly doubled since 2000, and the FPA’s failure to grow actually…

    As the research into behavioral finance has shown, the words we use and how concepts are framed can have a powerful impact on how we see the world and consider the opportunities that may lie before us. A strategy can go from being appealing to terrifying (or vice versa!) based solely on how it’s explained. And in the context of retirement, there are a lot of words and phrases that may unintentionally be hampering our efforts to have a productive planning conversation. For instance, with the rise of Monte Carlo analysis, it’s become increasingly popular to talk about the probability of…

We hear it on the news and we feel it from the strengthened security measures every time we enter the mall.

The 1890 level is strong support/ resistance that the market has reached today.

    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.

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?

    Ketan Gujarathi

    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.

    The message coming out of Jackson Hole was a belief that, while any decisions will be data-driven, the Fed will not rush to raise the Funds rate. 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.

  • 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.

    Economists are torn apart as to when the Bank of England will be raising its historical low 0.5% interest rate, but a consensus is emerging that a combination of the frail global recovery and weak demand will be pushing any increase further back until the late 2015. Minutes of the October Monetary Policy Committee meeting showed that the committee was divided for the third consecutive month as to whether they should push through with the increased rates, with seven members voting to remain and hold while two others voted otherwise for an immediate increase.

The euro declined to as low as $1.27025 on trading platforms in the EBS European trade which was its lowest level since last week. It was last seen standing at $1.2717 which had very little change on that day and was still sluggish following a 0.7% fall last week.

    Spread betting is an option to conventional investing in which the goal is to profit from movements in the value of financial product. The rewards and the risks are much more higher than traditional trading. Spread betting came a long way over the past two decades, wherein it is seen as a high risk option to the high-street bookie for sports nuts in today’s spread-betting aficionados thinking of themselves as investors.

    Spread betting companies are now providing exposure to financial markets that are often asked with a very straightforward question, “why should investors utilise them in order to derive exposure instead of investing in the markets directly”? There are several number of answers to this query, which if collated explains why the industry has expanded so quickly in recent years. among the first reasons why people regard spread betting as a favourable tax treatment is that it attracts people who are risk takers.

  • Large stock market losses grip on depressed commodities

    Gordon Smith
    21 Oct 2014 | 6:10 pm
    Large equity losses tolled on the agriculture markets last week as the USDA Crop Progress signaled the corn harvest was further along than what was earlier anticipated which subsequently weighed on the CBOT futures in the early trade. The late corn’s weakness possibly exemplified a bearish commodity reaction to the hefty losses in the equity markets since those indicate a weak demand outlook.
