Millennials are moving to America’s cities — and not just the biggest ones. While places like NYC and LA remain millennial magnets, research from the Urban Land Institute shows that smaller cities, from Virginia Beach, Va., to Riverside, Calif., are actually seeing the most relative growth in their population of 25-to-34-year-olds, TIME writes. Virginia Beach’s uptick in millennials
As stocks continue their inexorable march deeper into uncharted territory, yet another prominent investor has joined the chorus of experts warning of a catastrophic end to the market’s hot streak, Marketwatch observes. Bill Gross, portfolio manager of the Janus Global Unconstrained Bond Fund, on Wednesday warned that the financial markets are at their most vulnerable
Goldman Sachs on Friday released a report on the top five outperforming mega-cap names in tech with some warnings on valuations and concerns that their volatility has become extraordinarily low. In fact, the stocks had become closely correlated to safe haven plays, like bonds and utilities. The blue-chip firm studied the valuations of the tech leaders,
The market’s reversal on Friday has one technician warning of a possible “wake up call” for bulls. In an interview last week with CNBC’s “Futures Now,” T3 Live chief technical strategist Scott Redler presented one chart that suggested a move up to 2,470 for the S&P 500 Index before the end of June. According to
The seemingly never-ending record run for stocks doesn’t mean the Trump rally is on solid footing, according to perma bear Peter Schiff. “I think the trade has unraveled a bit,” the Euro Pacific Capital CEO said last week on CNBC’s “Futures Now.” Last week, stocks set new all-time highs, as investors shrugged off a weaker-than-expected
Be afraid. Be very afraid. So said investing luminaries Bill Gross, manager of the Janus Henderson Global Unconstrained Bond Fund, and Paul Singer, founder of hedge fund Elliott Management Corp., at the Bloomberg Invest New York summit on Wednesday. You’ve no doubt heard the gist of their argument a thousand times: The Federal Reserve flooded
Wall Street is questioning the value investing strategy espoused by legendary investors such as Warren Buffett after a decade of weak returns. The value “strategy’s poor performance has coincided with a swell of assets into passive equity investment strategies as well as quantitative and ‘smart beta’ funds,” Goldman strategist Ben Snider wrote in a report
With former FBI Director James Comey‘s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee and the elections in the U.K. today, those headlines alone could have been enough to stir the market. However, the markets had a relatively steady day and closed a bit higher. Steve Grasso, director of institutional sales at Stuart Frankel, spoke on CNBC’s
The low volatility plaguing the market looks here to stay, after traders hoping for a spike this week got the opposite. The CBOE Volatility Index (.VIX), considered the best gauge of fear in the market, dropped Friday to 9.37, its lowest since Dec. 27, 1993. The decline comes even after U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May’s
Is your financial advisor working in your best interest? You’d think the answer would be “yes”, right? In reality, it’s more like “maybe” because some of the retirement advice you’ve been getting might just be suitable for you while also making your advisor richer, too, Yahoo writes. But all that changes now as the much-anticipated
Trump nominated Randal Quarles, who worked previously at the Treasury Department, and Marvin Goodfriend, a former official at the Richmond Fed, Gainesville News writes. In addition to being newsworthy on its on merits, and an important change to the makeup of the Fed, the appointments stand in stark contrast with the vast number of vacancies that
The chairman of the House Financial Services Committee said Thursday he’s not interested in passing a modern version of a Depression-era banking law the Trump administration has talked of reviving, The Hill writes. The Trump administration has called for a “21st-century” version of the Glass-Steagall Act, a 1930s law creating a legal firewall between investment and
President Donald Trump promised Wednesday to create a “first-class” system of roads, bridges and waterways by using $200 billion in public funds to generate $1 trillion in investment to pay for construction projects that most public officials agree are badly needed and long overdue, Arkansas Online writes. “America must have the best, fastest and most

Trump promised tax cuts during his election campaign last year and has reiterated those
The House of Representatives will vote on the Financial Choice Act Thursday, a bill that would significantly roll back a multitude of financial regulations implemented under an Obama-era financial law called Dodd-Frank. Republicans, including the Trump administration, believe Dodd-Frank inhibits U.S. economic growth through burdensome regulation that prohibits lending. The Choice Act, introduced by Rep. Jeb
Despite numerous attempts to kill it, the so-called Fiduciary Rule goes into effect tomorrow. The DOL rule requires financial advisors to put their clients’ financial interests ahead of their own and it is causing quite a stir among broker-dealers and the “advisors” who interact directly with clients, Consumer Affairs writes. Firms large and small have
Well-known cybersecurity firm Crowdstrike greets travelers who arrive at San Francisco International Airport with a rather bold claim advertised throughout the terminals. The advertisements pose a pernicious yet seemingly tidy answer: “Yesterday’s Antivirus Can’t Stop Today’s Cyber Attacks. Crowdstrike Falcon Can.” Irresponsible hyperbole? Or is it a pitch made in good faith, albeit one
In response to industry requests, FINRA recently released guidance on how financial services firms can use social media and other forms of electronic communications while complying with rules and regulations.

After its first week in business, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? had paid for itself. It’s not as big a feat as it sounds; my startup costs totalled $700 for a beat-up pick up truck.

President Donald Trump’s tax treatment of pass-through income could cost as much as $1.95 trillion over 10 years, according to a new analysis. And more than three-quarters of the cut would go to the wealthy. The Tax Policy Center said that if Trump’s plan to tax pass-through income at 15% takes effect, federal tax revenue
It may be a bit of a generalization, but I don’t think that I’m out of line when I say that entrepreneurs, on balance, are an impatient bunch. In order to build a successful business, you have to hustle and be somewhat of a hard-charger. Impatience, unsurprisingly, is a common byproduct of the entrepreneurial mindset.

Bestselling author and business icon Stephen Covey once said: “When you show deep empathy toward others…That’s when you can get more creative in solving problems.” These words ring true for me not just because they were spoken by one of the most influential figures in American business, but because now, more than ever, the need for empathy spans
Your new financial advisor has a well-decorated office, a firm handshake, and a bright smile. After an hourlong meeting, you leave with what you think is a state-of-the-art investment portfolio. You feel financially secure, taken care of. It’s also possible you’ve made a huge mistake. The White House under President Obama estimated that Americans lose
JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon runs the largest bank in the country but is frustrated by obstacles he sees keeping young people from having bright futures and workers from getting higher pay. Speaking Wednesday at a Business Roundtable summit, Dimon implored the public to focus on “three really bad facts” that are limiting growth for the U.S. economy.
A stark reality of retirement planning is that your future is riding on the quality (read: plausibility) of your assumptions. Abject optimism can be dangerous. For example, eight years into this bull market, expecting stocks to deliver as-strong returns over the next decade is an iffy proposition many are nonetheless banking on. Another potential flawed assumption is that you will
Cutting and merging two agencies that investigate workplace discrimination won’t reduce the government’s enforcement power, Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta said, The Seattle Times writes. But Democrats pointed to what they say is President Trump’s broader effort to roll back decades of civil rights protections. “Department of Labor is going to allow, now, discrimination to run
Forget U.S. stocks and emerging-market assets, even ignore bitcoin. Those brave enough to invest in the Wild West of tech are the ones making a killing.

The portfolio manager who ran the world’s largest technology and internet fund during the dot-com bubble is warning that fundamentals aren’t justifying stock prices. Paul Meeks, who worked for Merrill Lynch during the boom and subsequent collapse, says he doesn’t feel as much skepticism now surrounding technology stocks as he did then, but he’s still

Among academicians, few have made a real-world impact as far-reaching as Harry Markowitz, the father of modern portfolio theory. Markowitz devised his seminal theory as a 23-year-old Ph.D. student at the University of Chicago in 1950 and won a Nobel Prize for it in 1990. For generations, it has guided money managers in picking stocks that

Microsoft founder Bill Gates wants to tax robots who take people’s jobs, but a top European Union (EU) official has other ideas.

Venture capitalist Marc Andreessen says we’ve got this whole artificial intelligence thing all wrong.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday scaled back the SEC’s power to recover ill-gotten profits from defendants’ misconduct, handing Wall Street firms a victory and dealing another blow to the regulator’s enforcement powers. In a 9-0 ruling, the Supreme Court found that the SEC’s recovery remedy known as “disgorgement” is subject to a five-year statute
This market’s signature move is the shrug: Stocks seem to shrug off any and all adverse-seeming news and march to new highs, while investors shrug in confusion over why nothing seems to disturb the rally. Muted U.S. economic growth, terrorist attacks, waning prospects for bold fiscal-policy moves and a flatter Treasury yield curve are among the notional threats that
Commentary on InvestmentNews article by Greg Iacurci Record keepers are betting that 401(k) managed accounts will become more popular in relation to target-date funds, and advisors may stand to benefit as a result, InvestmentNews writes.

Two of Wall Street’s biggest firms published bold calls about the stock market in the coming year. S&P Global Market Intelligence on Monday raised its one-year S&P 500 target to 2,575.

The record high stock market may be signaling it’s the best of times. But the bond market looks to be saying just the opposite: If it’s not the worst of times, it soon could be. Traders have been debating which one is right — the stock market grinding to new highs, or bonds, with yields
Investors should avoid bank stocks as the sector’s fundamentals will deteriorate in the coming months, closely followed analyst Dick Bove said Thursday on CNBC’s “Fast Money Halftime Report.” Bove, vice president of equity research and financial sector analyst at Rafferty Capital, said bank stocks “are even more treacherous than you think.” “Over the last six
Buying stocks that are cheap and out of favor to capture extra return when they eventually recover—a cornerstone of value investing—has worked for decades, but may no longer be a sound strategy due to shifts in how markets operate, according to Marketwatch’s take on recent comments from Jeremy Grantham, founder of asset manager GMO. Students
It may take the U.K. as long as five years to leave the European Union, with the process set to do major harm to both parties, billionaire investor George Soros said, urging the world’s biggest trading bloc to avoid penalizing Britain and instead focus on reforming itself.

Bogle noted that trading would dry up if the stock market comprised only indexers and there were no active investors setting prices on individual issues. Everyone would just buy or sell the market.
Bill Stone believes that while investors are focused on what awaits President Donald Trump now that he’s returned to Washington, the market rally will still continue, thanks to strong fundamentals that he expects will carry through the year.

CFP Mike Keeler has a client, a retired teacher, who saved diligently for her golden years and will leave behind a sizable estate when she passes away.

Your will is your single most important estate planning document for many reasons. Generally, the attorney drafting your will also prepares ancillary documents such as power of attorney, living will, and health care proxy – all quite important. But there is also a very meaningful (and extremely considerate) part of your estate planning that doesn’t
Sometimes, people attempt to make an estate plan without consulting legal and financial professionals. They may have a general understanding of estate planning and believe they can do it themselves without paying for professional services. This often fails because of the detailed knowledge it requires to draft the documents that cover the nuances of their
May’s weak hiring and sluggish wage growth should not deter the Federal Reserve from raising interest rates in June, but it puts any further hikes this year in doubt. There were 138,00 nonfarm payrolls added in May, and average hourly wages rose just 2.5 percent on an annual basis. The unemployment rate fell to 4.3% from
Elon Musk said Thursday he will leave his positions on three presidential councils.

In business, some entrepreneurs view success in its most basal format. All they want is the ability to earn a living while working for themselves. For others, success takes on far more grandiose terms. It involves the erection of colossal empires that spans the globe with droves of customers and multi-billion-dollar revenue streams. Yet, whatever level or scale
Our planet is warming, putting at risk not only our physical well-being, but our wallets, Marketwatch writes. President Trump announced Thursday that the United States would pull out of the Paris Agreement, a landmark international deal signed in 2015 to limit global warming. The U.S. joins only two other countries, Syria and Nicaragua, in rejecting it.
Being an effective manager is no easy feat. Being effective and well-liked is even harder. But it’s important to try: A Gallup study found that about half of workers quit because of a bad boss.

The CFP Board, the nonprofit that administers the Certified Financial Planner designation, is tackling the lack of diversity in the financial planning profession by creating a new campaign and promoting the business on social media — but a recent approach proved just how difficult that may be, MarketWatch writes.

Every entrepreneur knows starting a business is very hard. However, what many entrepreneurs find is that growing a business is even harder. What I’ve learned from my 20 years working inside startups and in venture capital is that founders typically face a common set of challenges as their early stage company shifts into growth mode.
On one medium-sized farm in western Kansas, fourth-generation farmer Derek Sawyer is doing all he can to stay afloat. He has 2,500 acres of land and about 700 cows, but looming on the horizon is a White House budget proposal that would cut $38 billion in subsidies to farmers like him. President Trump’s budget
Wealthy Americans have put off some of their tax bills this year, causing such a pinch to government revenue that the U.S. could face a default on its debt months sooner than the White House expected. High-income taxpayers may be anticipating a future tax cut from President Trump. But they may also accelerate a political
President Trump’s chief strategist and Environmental Protection Agency administrator maneuvered for months to get the president to exit the Paris climate accord, shrewdly playing to his populist instincts and publicly pressing the narrative that the nearly 200-nation deal was effectively dead — boxing in the president on one of his highest-profile decisions to date, POLITICO writes.
Businesses need to start adapting their marketing efforts to keep up with the advances in technology. Mobile device adoption rates are increasing at an incredible rate, surpassing 80% in 2016 alone. Even more importantly, average smartphone conversion rates are up 64% compared to the average desktop conversion rates for e-commerce alone. In today’s digital and interconnected world, the importance of

The biggest players in Silicon Valley’s burgeoning autonomous car industry have a warning for their top engineers: if you quit to set up your own company, tread carefully.

The wealth management industry is being driven by two major factors: first, the focus on making the business more efficient; and secondly, collaboration between traditional banks and fintech firms, hubbis writes.

The finance industry may get a fresh opportunity to chip away at an Obama-era rule that cracked down on Wall Street conflicts of interest, as the SEC is considering reviewing the responsibilities that brokers have to their clients. The SEC’s first step could be seeking feedback on what’s known as a fiduciary duty — the requirement
Robots are slowly creeping their way into retail, restaurants, hospitals and now, they are starting to show a presence on Wall Street, Daily Mail writes. Although some banks have argued that wealthier individuals will ‘always demand face-to-face advice’, many high-net worth investors are looking to robo-advisors for guidance in the market. New York-based Betterment has
Reports of robots taking over retail jobs have been greatly exaggerated. I’m talking about a recent report by Cornerstone Capital Group claiming that some 7 million retail jobs could be at risk from the threat of automation. Fellow Forbes contributor Paula Rosenblum and I both have contrarian views on this. That’s partly because retailers with a store base can’t just cut their way to
