  • Growth stocks: Toyota and Honda count on low yen to counter airbag troubles

    Today, a look at how good companies deal with adverse circumstances. Two dominant Japanese carmakers, Toyota and Honda, have had to deal with massive recalls and repairs from faulty airbag inflators. But both continue to benefit from strong international sales and a lower Japanese yen. Faulty airbag inflators made by Takata Corp. have forced Toyota to recall 8.1 million vehicles since 2008, while Honda has had to fix 20 million cars. However, these recalls likely won’t damage Toyota and Honda’s reputations or sales, as other big carmakers have also used Takata’s defective equipment.

Meanwhile, United said that next month it will begin conversion of its 21 three-class Boeing 767s to two-class.

    According to a report from international consulting firm PWC, the industrials sector is expected to continue to prosper for the remainder of 2015 as larger corporate buyers seek to acquire improved technology, facilities and people. The US Federal Reserve’s decision to keep interest rates low has substantially lowered the cost of M&A funded by debt. For companies with limited growth opportunities, acquisitions are a natural path to bolstering market share. Manufacturers may be more cautious with inventory, production, staffing and capital expenditure strategies if US industrial…

    Is your Company worth what it should be? When we meet with business owners, we always find it interesting to hear what they think their company is worth.  We have a slide in our pitch book that has two words on it – “EXPECTATION” and “MOTIVATION.”  This slide always generates interesting conversation.  Often the owner has an inflated expectation of his company’s worth and when asked how they came up with that value, the response has nothing to do with the company’s operations but what the owner needs for retirement.  As such, we should probably add a third word to the slide…

  • Americans Left $24 Billion in Retirement Money on the Table Last Year

    Dan Kadlec
    28 Jul 2015 | 3:30 am
    Personal savings rose last year, as conscientious workers reined in their spending. But a smaller portion of those savings were stashed in employer-sponsored retirement plans, new research shows. This and other recent findings suggest that the much-vaunted 401(k) match may not be the silver bullet for retirement savings that is widely presumed. Personal savings jumped to 5.5% last year from 4.6% in 2013, according to data from Hearts and Wallets, a financial research firm. In the same period, average household savings allotted to employer-sponsored retirement plans fell to 22% from 29%. Among…

The tough day follows declines in U.S. markets last week, when the three major indexes fell more than 2 percent as a number of big companies reported disappointing earnings. Faced with a drop in stock prices in Asia, Europe and the U.S., investors moved into traditional safe havens. The yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury note fell to 2.22 percent from 2.26 percent on Friday. The price of gold rose 1 percent. Dividend-heavy stocks, like utilities, also gained.

The plane is a Boeing 757-200 jet and he’s owned it since 2011, according to Business Insider. As the article notes, he wasn’t the first to own the plane.

With Sanders now a bonafide political sensation, drawing larger crowds on the 2016 presidential campaign trail than anyone in either party, it was a legitimate, if not unconventional…

    Back in May, I wrote about an experiment I was conducting in my trading.  Since that time, I've made mistakes and learned valuable lessons.  Out of those has emerged a promising consistency in my profitability.  I am quite confident that I have many more lessons to learn and mistakes to make.  So far, however, those lessons have been constructive ones, so I thought I'd share the most important ones:1)  Since May, I have returned to my daytrading roots.  In that May post, I outlined three patterns that anchored my trading.  My trading consistency (hit rate)…

    *  Above we see the daily average of 5, 20, and 100-day new highs versus new lows for all SPX stocks.  (Raw data from the ever-helpful Index Indicators site).  When this multiperiod breadth measure has been in its weakest quartile going back to 2014, the next five days in SPX have averaged a gain of +.64%.  All other occasions have averaged a gain of only +.05%.  Interestingly, when we look just two days out, the strongest breadth periods have led to an average gain of +.15% and the weakest periods have yielded an average gain of +.40%.  All other occasions have…
  • The Problem With Promiscuity In Trading

    19 Jul 2015 | 3:28 am
    Promiscuity and trading:  admittedly not the most common of topics in trading psychology, but I think it's quite relevant.Alvarez makes a good point:  on important matters in which we feel commitment, there is no promiscuity.  If you're committed to physical health and being in peak conditioning, you won't be promiscuous in what you eat.  If you're committed to a marriage, you won't be sexually promiscuous.  If you're committed to career or a religious faith, you will necessarily be selective in what you pursue.The problem with promiscuity is that the pursuit of…

    Roger Nusbaum
    27 Jul 2015 | 8:16 am
    The weekly Market Update is posted and includes the following; While we are hesitant to believe that everything the market does can be accurately explained (explanation fallacy) we would note that oil did drop 6% for the week for its first weekly close below $50 since April. Some of this decline could be attributed to concerns about growth although markets may not fully know what to expect from Iran and the extent of how much they will actually be able to engage the global market. Much was also made of the large and ongoing decline in gold; down 4% on the week. Industrial commodities have…
  • Jason Zweig Is Wrong About Gold

    Roger Nusbaum
    21 Jul 2015 | 9:26 pm
    My latest for Alpha Baskets looks at a recent post from Jason Zweig about gold that I think misses one key reason to own gold which is its continued low to negative correlation to equities. From the post; Back in 2010 and 2011 there were many articles averring for a 20-25% weighting in gold which made the Harry Browne Permanent Portfolio a very popular discussion point. While I have always found the Browne portfolio intriguing I was very consistent in saying what a terrible idea that much to gold would be. I believe the popularity to suggest 25% was a form of recency bias attached to how well…
  • Greece Is In Troub…Oh Wait, No It’s Not

    This week’s Market Update is posted and includes the following; Greece managed to work its way out of its debt predicament by essentially agreeing to austere measures that were previously off the table as far as they were concerned, will get bailed out on its debt and will get additional funding as needed. This is a simplification of what transpired for economy of words but the event as it has played out thus far is similar to many past events where perceptions of uncertainty were high with many dire forecasts only to have it resolve much quieter than expected.

If you don’t have enough yet to retire at 55 but do lose that high paying job you will figure it out and make due one way or another because you have to so what is on the table is how difficult…

    This week’s Market Update is posted at Alpha Baskets and includes the following; The Barron’s Current Yield column summed up the week far better than we ever could noting “you may have missed some Fed news last Wednesday, when the New York Stock Exchange was shut down, China’s stock market was crashing, Greece was teetering on the brink of a debt default, and commodities prices were plunging” although the Fed news wasn’t that big relatively speaking; the FOMC notes were a little more dovish than expected.

  • Bankruptcy in Russia, 1740-1800, and the First Non-Merchant Discharge!

    Jason Kilborn
    23 Jul 2015 | 9:51 am
    I discovered something surprising in my summer research on the history of bankruptcy in Russia: It seems that the first modern, court-ordered bankruptcy discharge available to non-merchant debtors appeared not in the US or England, but Russia, in 1800. I suspect the relief offered was largely theoretical, but I found it shocking and intriguing that a discharge appeared in Imperial Russian law that early on. The law will finally come full circle in October 2015, when the new Russian law on personal insolvency becomes effective. It's been a long time coming! As in England, bankruptcy law…

Slightly longer version: really nothing to see here. Even longer version:  the plaintiffs in State National Bank of Big Spring v.

    On Friday, Tara Siegel Bernard reported in the New York Times that some bankruptcy judges think that the onerous Brunner standard for discharging student loans should change. Commenting on the article, reader "alma" writes: As someone who recently filed for bankruptcy and has more than $100,000 in student loan debt, I can tell you why I did not try to get relief from student loans: I did not know it was an option. My lawyer simply told me that it was not possible to have student loans discharged. This article is the first I have even heard there was any method to do so ....

    Today is the ninth anniversary of Credit Slips, which means we are now old enough for the fourth grade. Thanks for reading and for your support. The year we started, 2006, seems so long ago. The W was in the White House, and we were "Mission Accomplished" in Iraq for three whole years at that point. We had just experienced the second sitting vice president to shoot another person while in office. And, it was a year the St. Louis Cardinals would win the World Series (so some things change not so much). CFPB was just a nascent idea that one of our co-bloggers was promoting. I…
  • Faster Payments: Is There a Business Case?

    Adam Levitin
    17 Jul 2015 | 10:39 am
    The Federal Reserve System has embarked on a project of exploring the possibility of faster retail payments in the United States.  A similar move has occurred with the UK Payments Council.  At the same time, the Electronic Payments Network is rolling out a faster version of ACH. Here's what puzzles me:  what on earth is the business case for faster retail payments in the United States?  The U.S. payment system works incredibly well. Yes, it has flaws: the interchange system is unfair and security is atrocious. But those aren't really speed issues.  Real-time authentication is a…

    A plunge in Chinese stocks led to a gap down open in the U.S. indexes at the open and while selling didn't accelerate, no buyers truly moved in either. The S&P 500 fell 0.58% and NASDAQ 0.96%. The drop in China was the largest since 2007. June durable goods data showed an increase of 3.4 percent, beating expectations slightly. The Fed begins a two day meeting Tuesday as policy makers...

    A very frustrating year at the index level continues. Each time it looks like we are going to escape a range there is a failure. The S&P 500 fell 0.57% and the NASDAQ 0.49%. Weekly jobless claims came in at 255,000, their lowest level since 1973.

The S&P 500 only fell 0.24% while the NASDAQ fell 0.70%. Existing home sales rose 3.2% from the previous month in June, their highest levels in over eight years.

    24 Jul 2015 | 7:34 am
    When I first heard about Twitter, I didn’t get its appeal. As I understood it, people could send short messages for others to read. That sounded like a public bulletin board. The Internet is full of special interest topic forums. People can send short messages to each other via emails, text messaging, online chat, and other ways. So what’s the big deal about Twitter? Nevertheless, I signed up for the service and listened. At first, it felt like a waste of time. Of course, I didn’t have many followers and had no clue who to follow. This was 2008 when Twitter was still young’un. The…

    Have you heard of payday loans? You’d never consider such an option because it’d drain your resources, right? Merchant cash advance and business cash advances are like payday loans except they target businesses. Thousands and thousands of business owners are stuck with MCA. To attract B2B companies, some MCA providers call it Business Cash Advance. An MCA may sound like a great idea, but it isn’t when you look at the full picture of how it works. Here’s a true story. A business owner tells them he needs $200k. They say they’ll advance him the $200k, and then take out a percentage of…

    When a colleague first started his little business, he had two clients. One provided steady projects. The set up worked well since he could manage these projects outside of his corporate job. Yes, he worked two full-time jobs between the corporate one and his business. We’ll call him Joe. He wanted to build cash flow before quitting his corporate job. Then the company — the steady one — went out of business. As for the other client … projects didn’t come in regularly enough to sustain business.

  • 5 Ways This Is Better Than a Bank Loan or Line of Credit

    Meryl Evans
    30 Jun 2015 | 9:51 am
    Before you consider going to a bank for a small business loan or line of credit, you might want to explore another option. A better one because it’s money that already belongs to you. The money you get from the flexible financing is invoice financing, which gives you the cash flow you need to pay expenses and grow your business. It’s also known as factoring and accounts receivables financing. Accounts receivables are open invoices that haven’t been paid. It’s money a company is owed after delivering the product or service. Clients may take 30, 60, 90, or more days to pay the invoice.

Another colleague texted me to let me know that her computer had died. Fortunately, she was able to buy a new computer the same day and restore her backed up files to the new computer.

    Alexis Arthur

    Global oil prices have returned to a state of flux. This is hardly news to any who follow the oil markets closely and yet prices continue to drive international headlines. While oil prices are notoriously difficult to predict, it has failed to deter the speculators. There are those warning that the latest dip is a precursor for $40 a barrel, a catastrophe for oil markets in some minds. On the other end of the spectrum are the optimists betting on a return to $100 by 2020. The World Bank has taken a typically middle-of-the-road approach, with forecasts…

After hitting $43 per barrel in March, oil prices jumped to $60 per barrel by May and then stayed around that level for almost two months, raising confidence that a rebound was underway, albeit at a slow pace. A few companies, including EOG Resources, Pioneer Resources, Occidental Petroleum, and Diamondback Energy, suggested that they were considering stepping…

    Hedge funds and other sophisticated investors use a variety of different strategies to earn a profit. Some of these strategies are too complex or costly for most individual investors, but one of the most popular is not. The idea behind a pair trade is to match two highly correlated securities against one another by taking a long position in one and a short position in the other. The result is a portfolio that is market neutral and instead evolves based on changes in the relative value of the two securities. One great pair trade right now is NuStar…

    By Chris Ebert When traders study the stock market, there are many methods for determining price levels that are likely to act as support – levels to which stock prices fall but don’t fall any further. In fact, one of the first things that many folks learn when they begin trading is that there are levels that act in an almost magical way to provide support. Only when something drastic changes the outlook for a stock does the stock price fall below support. The rest of the time, it is quite common for a stock price to bounce higher each time it falls low enough to touch support.

    Recent NAVEX survey shows sharp drop in training time even as creating ‘culture of ethics and respect’ is top goal of programs For all the lip service being paid recently to ethics and compliance at US companies, the top concerns for E&C professionals include less time devoted to training for senior leaders and board members and growing cynicism among employees about how effective this training is.   Those are among the results of NAVEX Global’s second annual Ethics and compliance training benchmark report, based on a survey of 677 E&C professionals.

    22 Jul 2015 | 4:00 pm
    Numbers of NPAs and DPAs far exceed indictments as enforcement agencies struggle to prove bribery charges When the Department of Justice (DoJ) decides a company has criminally violated the FCPA, the most likely resolution is a negotiated settlement – specifically, a non-prosecution agreement (NPA) or a deferred prosecution agreement (DPA). Those resolutions became common several years ago, and have far outstripped alternatives such as indictments against individuals or companies. NPAs and DPAs are controversial. A Manhattan Institute report titled ‘Without law or limits: the…

    Payday loans are the most expensive personal loans you can get, some companies charging as much as 400% APR (annual percentage rate) on their loans. Even in areas where payday loans are regulated, some micro-lenders get around these regulations by making subtle changes to their products – smoke and mirrors.

    The expenses of buying a home can quickly mount up. Besides working out what your monthly payments will be, there are many other costs of home ownership and they include the down payment and closing costs, not to mention insurances and property tax. Even if it is possible to make the mortgage payments, the up-front expenses of your down payment and closing costs might just be enough to make you think that first home ownership is beyond your reach. Fortunately, that isn’t necessarily so as there is help available. Local Government Assistance Some communities offer assistance to low income…

I can’t think of a time when I have ever written such a large check for anything. Though I was fortunate to live in a mid-west city where real estate was affordable and priced to sell. It didn’t hurt to buy during the recession either. Fast forward several years later and real estate is starting to climb back to the values of the old days.

    Dennis Hursh
    14 Jul 2015 | 6:10 am
    The reason for ‘without cause’ termination provisions in physician employment agreements Ideally, the practice of medicine will be a collegial pursuit.  Few would argue that a physician’s employer should be able to terminate the physician if he or she just isn’t a “fit” with the rest of the physicians.  By the same token, physicians obviously want some flexibility to leave the employer if the physician gets a better opportunity, or if the physician simply isn’t happy with the position.  For that reason, unless the physician is in the United States on a J-1…

    In 2011, I did a post that still seems relevant today on the use of messenger model IPAs.  Here is the original post: I have seen more interest lately in formation of messenger model IPAs.  I’ve never understood the fascination with these critters. I suppose the gentle antitrust treatment leads physicians to believe that they can form a messenger model IPA, enter into contracts as a group, and be left alone by the regulators.  That is largely true. The reason that regulators tend to let these entities alone is that, if done correctly, they are completely toothless. If your…

  • 6 multicultural money lessons worth learning

    24 Jul 2015 | 6:41 am
    Although the concept of money is universal, rituals around it are not. As international travelers can attest, the world is as wonderful and weird as it is wide. Nowhere is this more evident than in humanity's multifarious customs, which are as diverse as the global cultures that spawned them. In Greece, for instance, parents throw their children's baby teeth on the roof to bring their family good fortune. In Chile, it's rude to arrive on time. And in China, it's considered morbid to give gifts associated with death or funerals, such as clocks, handkerchiefs or flowers.

    Threatening you with jail time, telling your boss you're a deadbeat and cussing you out all are tactics some sleazy debt collectors use to put the squeeze on consumers. But the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act clearly states that those actions, and many others, are against the law. The FDCPA applies to both collection agencies working on behalf of an original creditor such as a credit card company or hospital – and to debt buyers, which are companies that purchase large amounts of debt at a steep discount, then try to collect the money.

    Successful entrepreneurs possess a creativity and tenacity that make them ideal financial role models. Although half of new businesses collapse within their first five years, according to the U.S. Small Business Administration, that doesn't mean their founders fizzle. In fact, many of the world's great entrepreneurs failed before they succeeded. Thomas Edison, for instance, tried to invent the light bulb more than 10,000 times before he finally saw the light.

After a plunge of more than 8 percent in major indexes on Monday, Chinese regulators said they were prepared to buy shares to stabilize the stock market, while the central bank injected cash into money markets and hinted at further monetary easing.

  • Fear Rises As Financial Markets All Over The Planet Start To Crash

    David Bettencourt
    27 Jul 2015 | 7:32 pm
    Can you feel the panic in the air?  CNN Money’s Fear & Greed Index measures the amount of fear in the financial world on a scale from 0 to 100.  The closer it is to zero, the higher the level of fear.  Last Monday, the index was sitting at a reading of 36.  As I write this article, it has fallen to 7. The financial turmoil which began last week is threatening to turn into an avalanche. On Sunday night, we witnessed the second largest one day stock market collapse in China ever, and this pushed stocks all over the planet into the red. Meanwhile, the twin blades of an emerging…
  • SPDR Gold Trust (ETF) Coming To A Crossroads

    David Bettencourt
    27 Jul 2015 | 1:26 pm
    Rick Pendergraft: The last four years have not been good for gold investors, as the price for the metal has fallen from a high of $1923.70 per ounce to a recent low of $1,080 per ounce. Strength in the U.S. dollar has contributed to the fall for the past year, but that was not the case in 2013. Given the multiple sovereign debt issues playing out around the globe (Greece and Puerto Rico most prominently), it is hard to believe that gold has continued to fall. Normally investors run to gold during times of financial uncertainty, but that hasn’t been the case in recent months. With the…
  • Hedge Fund Oil Bulls Dump Crude At Fastest Pace In 3 Years

    David Bettencourt
    27 Jul 2015 | 1:08 pm
    Tyler Durden:  Hedge Funds’ net long position in WTI Crude collapsed 27% (the biggest single ‘dump’ in over 3 years) ahead of the big plunge last week (and is now down almost 60% in the last month – the most since 2010). Part of a broader deflationary collapse in commodities, as Bloomberg reports, long positions dropped to a two-year low while short holdings climbed 25%, erasing more than $100 billion in market value from the 61 companies in the Bloomberg E&P stock index. With crude supplies still almost 100 million barrels above the five-year average,…
  • What’s Next For Treasury Bonds?

    David Bettencourt
    27 Jul 2015 | 1:01 pm
    Lawrence Meyers:  There tends to be a lot of anxiety surrounding Treasury bonds. Many institutions and investors peg their hopes, dreams and fears around this one particular investment. I have never liked the idea that one’s investment allocation and strategy should revolve around any one piece of data. Yes, interest rates affect Treasury’s and they affect how some investments should be allocated, but it’s not the be-all, end-all. In addition, I don’t think any investor should carry very much in Treasury’s these days. They pay almost nothing and they are worth less than…
  • Bottom Feeding In Chinese Equities

    David Bettencourt
    27 Jul 2015 | 12:44 pm
    Marshall Hargrave:  The Chinese stock market has been up in arms, as I’m sure you’ve heard by now. The Shanghai Composite Index is down over 20% from its June high. The Chinese government is trying a lot of things to stop the hemorrhaging. This includes putting a stop to the selling of certain stocks and putting a halt to initial public offerings. The bigger, overarching, fear is that the Chinese economy could be slowing, which is certainly bad news for its stock market. But the economy looks to still be growing, with the stock market showing some signs of stabilizing. China…

    Re:Simple Trick to Convert VolatilityReader asks, "I have weekly volatilities over 370 weeks, I like to convert this into an annualized volatility. How does this work?"Since volatility is weekly, in the linear case the multiplier would be 52 (weeks per year) , so for volatility you should multiply your weekly volatility by √ 52.In fact, the length of the measurement - 370 weeks - does not matter at all. If you would have 3 weeks or 7 weeks of weekly volatilities, multiplier would be the same. It is the frequency of observation that matters. To illustrate this consider another…

  • Growth stocks: Toyota and Honda count on low yen to counter airbag troubles

    Pat McKeough
    27 Jul 2015 | 11:25 am
    Today, a look at how good companies deal with adverse circumstances. Two dominant Japanese carmakers, Toyota and Honda, have had to deal with massive recalls and repairs from faulty airbag inflators. But both continue to benefit from strong international sales and a lower Japanese yen. Faulty airbag inflators made by Takata Corp. have forced Toyota to recall 8.1 million vehicles since 2008, while Honda has had to fix 20 million cars. However, these recalls likely won’t damage Toyota and Honda’s reputations or sales, as other big carmakers have also used Takata’s defective equipment.

The last time silver priced approached $50.00 per ounce, it was preceded by a corresponding rise in this key metric. The grey metal has depreciated by over 30% in the last 12 months.

    Dales Bellis is currently the executive director of Liberty HealthShare. He led the reorg of Liberty Healthcare, which is the offspring of the the ACA/Obamacare. It provided an exception or loophole for healthcare sharing ministries. But Liberty’s origins actually go back to the ’80’s. Dale's work in healthcare goes back to the first cost-sharing group ever begun in modern times, in 1988 when he started with just 1,000 families. By 2001 there were 25,000 families sharing medical bills. He helped get legislation passed in 11 states exempting cost sharing organizations from…

    In the overnight electronic session the September Corn is getting pasted currently trading at 381 which is 11 ½ cents lower. The trading range has been 389 ¼ to 380 ¼ so far. The weather we experiences in the Mid-west this weekend was a bearish factor. However, I anticipate this crop to be damaged and the numbers will show up in the August 12th Crop Production and USDA Supply/Demand data that should spark a rally. On the Ethanol Front it was very, very quiet trade in the overnight electronic session with the September contract posting a trade at 1.492 which is .012 cents lower. Not much…

The Shanghai Composite Index slid 8.5%, its worst daily percentage fall since February 2007.

    by Paul Clarke, eFinancialCareers Toby Triebel likes to think that he has a knack for grabbing an opportunity at the right time. Starting out at Goldman Sachs working in M&A during the mid-noughties boom years, he moved across to a debt restructuring role just before the financial crisis hit in 2008. “It was a move I made by chance because I had an interest in the area, but it ended up being one of the best performing teams at Goldman just as the bank started cutting headcount elsewhere,” he says. Most of his career moves have been motivated by “intellectual curiosity”, rather…

    Electronic trading networks have advanced markedly over the past decade. Surveillance systems that monitor the trades transmitted via such networks haven’t kept pace, but the increased emphasis on the function suggests the gap will narrow sooner rather than later. “We expect trade monitoring/surveillance tools to catch up with trading systems and level the playing field for compliance officers,” said Sudhir Gupta, vice president of capital markets and risk consulting partner at Cognizant. “These systems would be highly automated, keeping a 24x7 watch on trading activities.

That's the conclusion of Strategy&'s recent study of 540 major global deals in nine industries announced between 2001 and 2012. In fact, the overall premium for capabilities-driven deals above other types of deals -- identified as "limited fit" deals -- was a 14.2 percent compound annual growth rate.

    Last year, NerdWallet conducted a survey of couples to dig into gender roles and money. Among the results — which showed that gender roles are indeed still alive and well — was this little nugget: one in five respondents reported that they and their partner have no savings goals. That doesn’t mean they aren’t saving; just that they aren’t saving for anything specific. But that process of spelling out goals is key to reaching them. If you simply save blindly, you’re more likely to raid that cash for the wrong reasons. You may prioritize the wrong objective and choose the incorrect…

  • Retirement 101: The Basics of an IRA

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

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.

In June 2012, the State National Bank of Big Spring brought suit against the constitutionality of the CFPB, claiming that independent government agencies cannot be run by a single director, but instead must be headed by multiple members. The trial court threw out that lawsuit in 2013, but the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled unanimously that the bank…

This financing provides your company with funds to pay operational expenses and to grow. There are a few ways to repay the financing line, depending on your type of business.Initially, merchant cash advances were used solely to finance future credit card sales.

    Managing cash flow is one of the most important tasks of running a home health care agency, second only to providing good care to your patients. However, cash flow is often unpredictable and hard to manage. This difficulty can lead to financial problems.The greatest expense for most home care agencies is staffing costs.

    Greece is not our issue I would recommend getting a copy of John Mauldin’s and Worth Wray’s e-book on China, A Great Leap Forward? In the meantime, in almost every short video we have posted on our site, in addition to some thoughts on the topic of the day, I have suggested one needs to pay attention to China. As an expectation for our Perspectives piece, “What to Expect in 2015 (and beyond),” we suggested that growth in China would be significantly lower than the seven percent plus targets being set.

  • The “NO!” vote

    Jack Rivkin
    6 Jul 2015 | 9:10 am
    While we can expect some turmoil in the markets and some near term reinstatement of some trends, let’s keep in mind that the vote was positioned as a YES or NO! vote on the terms on the table. Tsipras did a very good job of positioning the vote as not a vote on exiting the Euro, but a vote on strengthening Greece’s hand at the negotiating table. While there is some risk–and certainly the noise (and volatility) will be prevalent—we are likely back into negotiation. It remains to be seen if this did strengthen Greece’s position or Germany’s.  While the NO! vote won, there still…

    Managed futures performance can be frustrating for investors. After strong performance in 2014 and into Q1 2015, many may be wondering why the strategy has lost some luster in Q2. The reality is that some of the very strong trends from last year have seen changes in direction. The key to understanding what might happen next is in trying to assess whether those trend changes are corrections against the previous trend or have graduated into full-blown trend reversals. There were price corrections across all four major market sectors in Q2—the US dollar, interest rates and equity indices…

    If you are tired of paying the minimum monthly payment on your credit cards and never making progress, it might be time to consider how debt consolidation loans work. The truth is, if you are only paying the minimum on your credit card, it can take 10 or more years to pay off the debt. With a car title loan, APRs can reach more than 100%, making it almost impossible to get the title back. This is where debt consolidation loans come into play.

  • Can a Weak Baht Help the Thai Economy?

    25 Jul 2015 | 8:56 am
    As the Thai government cut its forecast for economic growth and the Federal Reserve said it’s on track to raising interest rates this year, Thailand’s baht recorded its biggest weekly decline since May reaching a six-year low of 34.24. The currency rebounded on Friday, rising by 0.2%. Some of Thailand’s deputy ministers view the weaker baht positively. A lower-priced baht will help the country’s exports and offer more of a boost to a struggling economy than a rate cut, it is hoped. Southeast Asia’s second-largest economy feels the burden of record household debt which has…

It cut down on its forecasts based on analysts’ opinion about the wobbly success of Abenomics for the second quarter. However, it didn’t announce any plans for stimulus yet as the BOJ is still convinced that consumption will pick up and help reach the inflation target of 2% – even though he period of April-June has seen stagnant exports, which raises uncertainties for the BOJ’s long term projections of annualized growth.

    Amy Winehouse, Back to Black. Or rather going back to oil, as the Black is in the Red. The first dump in oil prices was always going to see support from those looking for supply to fall in response to price. It didn’t. The bounce was mainly short covering and we are now seeing a more realistic pricing to supply. This time we could make new lows. Resurgence of High Yield/ Oil linked concerns. Companies and individuals can only hold their breath for so long. The first dip was manageable out of cash reserves or lending lines. This second dump is like being pushed back under water just after…

    I asked the simple question this evening "Has Pluto been reclassified as a planet again yet", having witnessed the meteoric, or perhaps 'planetary', rise of Pluto's popularity. Its exclusion from the Solar System swiftly turned into a Twitterfest of analogies with the fate of Greece. Rather than leave that 'fest to fester in the ADHD black holes of past tweets I thought I should assemble them in one place in memoriam. So with huge thanks to my sparring partners @sanderwagner and @zatapatique for the wittiest in the list and to assists from many other dear friends, here is -The Pluto crisis…

    I am somewhat stunned at the resolution of the bijou Greek debt problemette. The idea that resolution, after extreme dissent and acrimony, was only found once Merkel and Tsipras were locked in a room under compulsory orders to come to an agreement is just bizarre. Just what was in that room that persuaded the two leaders to come up with a proposal, by themselves after months of team negotiations, that was guaranteed to alienate both of them from their electorate? Was the Pope in there revealing the apocalyptic third secret of Fatima? Or was it just the US secret service revealing all the goat…

Much as red lines in Greek economic policy are as flakey as dry chalk on an old wall, EU deadlines are as dead and liney as a snake on speed. Sunday is past and there is no deal. The Greeks have two days to implement changes as lack of trust means that reforms now come before the money. Once in place there will be a further deadlines before which to complete new agreements in time for further payment dates towards the end of July.Meanwhile the stranglehold on the banks via ELA will keep the pressure on the…

    Most parents try to stay aware of their children’s activities at school, at home, in public and online. But, many neglect to monitor their child’s credit history. Once a child’s identity is compromised, it can be years before the fraud is discovered. What is child identity theft?

Often credit issuers do not verify an applicant’s age or proof of identity. The unblemished credit history is like gold to thieves. The…

I’ve always been a big fan of TED Talks and many of the talks have been sources of great inspiration for me. Let’s just say I was more than honored to be invited to give one myself! And to have the ability to give the talk back home where I grew up was just icing on the cake. I spent a couple of months preparing and planning on a problem that individual investors are having because I believe it needs reversing. The majority of the talk…

In the process, they have continuously grown earnings and increased dividends while achieving ~10% returns on invested capital and over 20% returns on equity (ROE) over the last 10 years. Capex appears to be stable around 2.5B. Furthermore, in keeping with our conservative estimates, instead of using the TTM FCF figure of $8.65B to project FCF, we will be conservative, and use the 3-year FCF average from 2012-2014, $8.02 billion.

Iran has refuted those claims, saying that its program is strictly for peaceful purposes. Global reactions Global reactions to the deal have largely been positive, with many countries optimistic that the removal of sanctions will lead to increased business opportunities with Iran.

  • Chinese Stock Market Continues to Collapse

    13 Jul 2015 | 2:29 am
    Since reaching a 7-year high on June 11th, China’s stock markets have experienced a drastic sell-off which has seen over $3 trillion wiped off the value of all listed companies. The precipitous decline has reportedly been China’s most severe since 1992, and is causing analysts to conclude that the equity bubble has finally burst. Prices initially started to drop after Chinese regulators began cracking down on the widespread use of ‘margin finance’, whereby investors were excessively using borrowed money to purchase shares. Since then, a substantial number of retail investors have had…

    7 Jul 2015 | 12:19 am
    After falling sharply when markets opened for the week, the euro regained most of the ground it lost on Monday morning. The low level of turmoil is a sign that markets have had plenty of time to absorb the worst case scenarios around the Greek crisis. EUR/USD climbed back to 1.1038, taking it back up to the low end of the channel it was in at the end of last week. The pair is finding support around 1.1012 and resistance around 1.1080.

In fact, the GBP/AUD bullishness has pushed the price much higher than our initial forecast.

    Following the recent developments in Greece, including the default on a $1.7 billion payment to the IMF and yesterday’s rejection of more austerity in a national referendum, much has been made of the country’s future in the European Union. With some analysts predicting that the chance of a Grexit now at around 75%, the EU is quite possibly facing its biggest crisis to date. While Greece leaving the currency bloc would be enormously detrimental to both Greece and the EU, one of the biggest fears among experts is that the move will generate a snowball effect, in which other troubled…

    Technical Analysis: The BoC’s (Bank of Canada) to reduce interest rates came as a bit of a surprise, but has given impetus to the US$ to extend its bull run against the loonie. The interest rate hike came early July, when the market was caught brooding ( as shown by the higher upper whisker of the candle just prior to interest rate increase – the formation is somewhat akin to a shooting star). Then with the interest rate decision the greenback rallied and now another important signal is pointing to a reversal, and that is the bearish harami candlestick pattern. With the hope that the…
