Jared Kushner sought $500M loan from Qatar-based investor – NY Daily News,

Jared Kushner sought $500M loan from Qatar-based investor for family’s property

Investor business daily

White House senior adviser Jared Kushner tried and failed to secure a multi-billion deal with a Qatar-based investor.

Jared Kushner, the President’s son-in-law, sought a half-billion-dollar loan from a Qatar-based investor for his family’s business, but came up short in the deal, according to a report.

Kushner, who is also a senior adviser to President Trump, and his father Charles, tried getting the loan to refinance the family’s building at 666 Fifth Ave. in Manhattan from Qatar investor Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim al-Thani, The Intercept reported.

Al Thani, also known as HBJ, agreed to help the Kushners by investing $500 million on their property, but on the condition that they raise the rest of the money themselves. Those negotiations continued after Trump’s presidential victory, according to the Intercept.

Kushner Companies sought help from Anbang, a Chinese insurance company, but that firm pulled out of the deal over conflict of interest concerns.

With Anbang pulling from the deal, Kushner Companies fell short with HBJ, putting the deal in jeopardy, a source told the Intercept.

However, another source said the deal wasn’t killed entirely but was being reconsidered.

In June, several Gulf nations, including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and others, announced a blockade against Qatar over terrorism links.

Investor business daily

Jared Kushner tried getting the loan to refinance the family’s building at 666 Fifth Ave. in Manhattan from Qatar investor Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim al-Thani.

The decision came after the President’s Middle Eastern tour in May in which he met with Saudi Arabia’s king and other leaders.

President Trump credited himself on Twitter for the Gulf nations’ decisions.

“During my recent trip to the Middle East, I stated that there can no longer be funding of Radical Ideology,” Trump said in a June 6 tweet. “Leaders pointed to Qatar – look!”

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called for peace between the countries, but Trump proceeded by blasting Qatar as the “funder of terrorism at a very high level,” during a White House ceremony in June.

A source close to Tillerson told the American Conservative that the secretary of state was “blind-sided by the Trump statement,” and “absolutely enraged that the White House and State Department weren’t on the same page.”

Tillerson also believed Trump’s remarks were written by UAE Ambassador Yousef Al Otaiba, who is a close friend of Kushner, the outlet reported.

    Canadian business counts, June 2015

    Nationally, there were 1,250,822 active businesses with employees in June.

    In addition, there were 2,586,343 active businesses without employees and with annual revenues greater than $30,000.

    Note to readers

    Canadian business count s p reviously called Canadian business pattern s p rovide counts of active businesses by industry classification and employment-size categories for Canada and the provinces and territories. Canadian business counts are based on the same criteria that were used to calculate Canadian business patterns. Data are available in CANSIM tables 552-0002 and 553-0002.

    The counts are compiled from the Business Register, Statistics Canada’s central listing of Canadian businesses. They are based on the statistical concept of ‘location ‘ that is, each operating location is separately counted, including cases where one business comprises multiple locations. For example, a retail business with 10 stores represents 10 businesses in the Canadian business counts. Generally, among Canadian businesses, 99% are single-location enterprises.

    Changes to the Business Register’s methodology or business industrial classification strategies can bring about increases or decreases in the number of active businesses reported in the Canadian business counts. As a result, the data do not represent changes in the business population over time. Statistics Canada recommends users not to use the data as a time series.

    Five Investing Pitfalls To Avoid, According to Investor s Business Daily

    Big stock market winners look a lot alike — they have strong earnings and sales growth, a dynamic new product or service, leading price performance and rising mutual fund ownership. Interestingly, successful investors share similar traits.

    Top investors always keep their losses small; they never average down in price; they don’t immediately shun a stock because it has a high price-earnings ratio (P/E Ratio); and finally, they pay attention to the general health of the market when they buy and sell stocks.

    Yet, at the same time, many investors still operate using unsound principles. Successful investors learn to avoid the common pitfalls, and follow these insights that can put you well on your way to becoming a better investor.

    Buying Low-Priced Stocks
    What sounds better? Buying 1,000 shares of a $1 stock or buying 20 shares of a $50 stock? Most people would probably say the former because it seems like a bargain, with more opportunity for big increases from owning more shares. But the money you make in a stock isn’t based on how many shares you own. It’s based on the amount of money invested.

    Many investors have a love affair with cheap stocks, but low-priced stocks are generally missing a key ingredient of past stock market winners: institutional sponsorship.

    A stock can’t make big gains without the buying power of mutual funds, banks, insurance companies and other deep-pocketed investors fueling their price moves. It’s not retail trades of 100, 200 or 300 shares that cause a stock to surge higher in price, it’s big institutional block share trades of 10,000, 20,000 or more that cause these great jumps in price when they buy — as well as great price drops when they sell.

    Institutional investors account for about 70% of the trading volume each day on the exchanges, so it’s a good idea to fish in the same pond as they do. Stocks priced at $1, $2 or $3 a share are not on the radar screens of institutional investors. Many of these stocks are thinly traded so it’s hard for mutual funds to buy and sell big volume shares.

    Remember: Cheap stocks are cheap for a reason. Stocks sell for what they’re worth. In many cases, investors that try to grab stocks on the cheap don’t realize that they’re buying a company mired in problems with no institutional sponsorship, slowing earnings and sales growth and shrinking market share. These are bad traits for a stock to have. Institutions have research teams that seek out great opportunities, and because they buy in huge quantities over time, consider piggybacking their choices if you find these fund managers have better-than-average performance.

    The reality is that your prospect of doubling your money in a $1 stock sure sounds good, but your chances are better of winning the lottery. Focus on institutional quality stocks.

    Avoiding Stocks With High P/E Ratios
    “Focus on stocks with low P/E ratios. They’re attractively valued and there’s a lot of upside.” How many times have you heard this statement from investment pros?

    While it’s true that stocks with low P/E ratios can go higher, investors often misuse this valuation metric. Leaders in an industry group often trade at a higher premium than their peers for a simple reason: They’re expanding their market share faster because of outstanding earnings and sales growth prospects.

    Stocks on your watch list should have the traits of past big stock market winners we mentioned earlier: leading price performance in their industry group, top-notch earnings and sales growth and rising fund ownership, to name a few. A dynamic new product or service doesn’t hurt either.

    Stocks with “high” P/E ratios share a common trait: their performance shows there’s plenty of bullishness about the company’s future prospects. For example: In Aug 2003, stun-gun maker Taser International had a P/E of 44 before a 900% increase. At the time, the market was bullish about the firm’s earnings and sales growth prospects. The market turned out to be right. For five straight quarters, Taser has posted triple-digit earnings and sales gains.

    More great examples come from the medical, retail, and oil and gas sector, which were all strong performers in the 2003-2004 period. The table below shows leading stocks in the sectors that staged big price runs from seemingly high P/E ratios. In every case, it was explosive fundamentals that drove their stock price.

    At end-Oct 2004, the average P/E Ratio of stocks in the S P 500 Index was around 17.

    Letting Small Losses Turn Into Big Ones
    Insurance policies help us minimize risk when it comes to our health, home or car. In the stock market, most people don’t even think about buying insurance policies with individual stocks but it’s a good practice.

    Cut your losses in any stock at 7% or 8% and you’ll never get hit with a big loss. This is your insurance policy. If you buy stocks at the right time, they should never fall 7-8% below your purchase price.

    A small loss in a stock can easily be overcome. It’s the big ones that can do serious damage to a portfolio. Take a 50% loss on a stock, and it would need to rise 100% to get back to break-even. But if you cut your losses at 7% or 8%, a single 25% gain can wipe out three 7%-8% losses.

    Here’s a set of hypothetical trades to illustrate the point. Even if you had made these seven trades over a period of time – and taken losses on five of them – you would still come out ahead by more than $3,700. That’s because the two stocks that worked out resulted in a combined profit of $5,500. And the five losses – all capped at 7% or 8% – added up to $1,569.

    The rationale for that 7% Sell Rule was never clearer than in the bear market that began in Mar 2000. It caused unnecessary, severe damage to many investors’ portfolios. Small losses in tech stocks snowballed into huge ones. Some stocks lost 70%-80% or more of their value. Some will never reclaim their old highs. Others may, but it’ll be a long road back. All successful investors share one trait: they firmly recognize the importance of protecting hard-earned capital by selling fast when a stock declines 7% or 8% from where they bought it.

    If a stock you own starts to fall on expanding trading volume, it’s usually better to sell first and ask questions later, rather than the other way around. Keep losses small to avoid severe damage. You can always re-enter the game if you’ve only lost 7%. Don’t ever look back after a smart sell, even if the stock rebounds. You have no way of knowing its future, so you are best off reacting to what your stock is telling you right now. Learning this trait is hard — but it will save you a great deal in the long run.

    Averaging Down
    Averaging down means you’re buying stock as the price falls in the hopes of getting a bargain. It’s also known as throwing good money after bad or trying to catch a falling knife. Either way, trying to lower your average cost in a stock is another risky proposition.

    For example, take Amazon.com between June and Oct of 2004. Its chart revealed much institutional selling by mutual funds and other big investors.

    In June, it was a $54 stock. In July, it was a $45 stock. Investors who bought in at $45 may have thought they were getting a bargain, but they weren’t paying attention to multiple heavy-volume declines in the stock. What’s the sense of buying a stock when mutual funds and other big investors are selling big blocks of shares? That’s a tough tide to swim against.

    When Amazon released its earnings on Oct 21, it fell another 10% to around $37. In general, stock charts tell bullish or bearish stories long before headlines do. In Amazon’s case, heavy volume declines between July 8 to 23 told a bearish story.

    Buying Stocks In A Down Market
    Some investors don’t pay any attention to the current state of the market when they buy stocks. And that’s a mistake.

    The goal is to buy stocks when the major indexes are showing signs of accumulation (buying: heavy volume price increases) and to sell when they’re showing signs of distribution (selling: heavy volume price declines). Three-fourths of all stocks follow the market’s trend, so watch it each day, and don’t go against the trend. It’s not hard to tell when the indexes start to show signs of duress.

    Distribution days will start to crop up in the market where the indexes close lower on heavier volume than the day before. In this case, a strong market opening will fizzle into weak closes. And leading stocks in the market’s leading industry groups will start to sell off on heavy volume. This is exactly what happened at the start of the bear market in Mar 2000.

    When you’re buying stocks, make sure you’re swimming with the market tide, not against it.

    CAN SLIM™ and the IBD Way
    If you are a reader of Investor’s Business Daily (IBD) or any other of William O’Neil’s writings, you may have noticed that these five pitfalls compliment the CAN SLIM methodology of stock selection. By avoiding low-priced stocks, looking beyond the P/E, implementing a stop-loss plan, not averaging down and monitoring the overall market, you’ll be well on your way to a sound investing strategy based on years of studies and research from IBD.

    Investor s Business Daily Founder Invests in SMU

    California-based William J. O’Neil, who started the Investor’s Business Daily newspaper, funded a chair in business journalism at Southern Methodist University’s Meadows School of the Arts in 2007 and, a year later, established the William J. O’Neil Center for Global Markets and Freedom at SMU’s Cox School of Business. O’Neil lived in Dallas growing up and graduated from SMU in 1955.

    1. Why have you endowed these programs at SMU?

    Because we’ve had Investor’s Business Daily for 27 years. We have an enormous database, and we’ve learned a lot about the economy. There’s constant change—newcomers coming in with something new, cheaper, faster, displacing older-line companies—and that’s the heart of what the country’s all about. There’s freedom and opportunity to do whatever you want here; it’s up to you. But not everyone understands that.

    2. Why have you focused at least partly on business journalism?

    My feeling about the journalist field is that journalism students don’t really know much about business. So I think every journalism [student] should have a couple of years of economics background. They need to be able to judge and evaluate: Is this thing we’re hearing about sound, or not?

    3. It has been reported that you bought a building in Plano. What will you do with it?

    The building is in escrow, and we should have possession by December or January. I think it’s on 11.5 acres. We’re going to move some people here. We have two different operations: O’Neil Data Systems [an automated printing business], which has a lot of big contracts with HMOs to provide all their data. And then we’ll have some of the newspaper people, though we’ll still maintain similar operations in Los Angeles. We’re still analyzing what functions we’ll want to have here, and we’ll hire some people here. In the long run, the paper may have its headquarters here. It just depends.

    4. Depends on what?

    Well, on how things go. We think being in the central part of the country—in a dynamic area that’s growing and that’s more willing to be pro-business—would preserve the future of the paper.

    5. There seems to be a lot of talk these days about American decline. Do you agree with the naysayers, or are you optimistic about the future?

    Back in the 1970s, everybody was saying that we had seen our best growth. But the American system is such that anybody can come here and do anything they want to do. So the ‘brain drain’ is moving toward us all the time. Our system adjusts and corrects the problems. So I think the long-term future is very positive.

    Stock futures inched forward today, as all eyes will be on this morning s unemployment rate, and nonfarm payrolls data. The unemployment rate is expected to drop to 4.8% from 4.9%, and is seen as the last major hurdle for the Feds before they decide to raise rates or not during their September meeting.

    Oil prices shot up overnight as Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that he would like for Russia and OPEC to make a deal regarding a production cap. President Putin went on to say that he would likely support a plan to crimp production at the G20 summit in China next week. Lastly, Putin said that Russia is prepared to sell a 19.5% stake in Rosneft PJSC, the country s largest listed oil producer, as early as the end of 2016.

    In Europe, producer prices in the euro region rose by +0.1%, the lowest monthly reading since April. Also, the European Union started their two day meetings today; the major issues being discussed are the fallout from the Brexit, and global banks attempting to preserve their access to the single market.

    Can Pregnant Women Have A Glass Of Wine With Dinner? Everything We

    Can Pregnant Women Have A Glass Of Wine With Dinner? Everything We ve Learned About Drinking While Pregnant

    Some recent studies suggest women can get away with a couple glasses every now and then, but doctors disagree. Pixabay

    Pregnancy can take a real toll on the body. As a woman’s hormones start to change, she may feel nausea, fatigue, dizziness, and mood swings, not to mention the anxiety and possible fear that can occur in the weeks leading up to actual childbirth. So how bad would it be to take the edge off with a little alcohol?

    Maybe you think it’s crazy to ask that. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has long recommended against any alcohol consumption during pregnancy, calling it a leading cause of birth defects that can harm the fetus. Even moderate drinking can cause lifelong problems with a child’s learning and behavior.

    But in recent years, the recommendation against all alcohol has come into question.

    Is light to moderate drinking OK?

    Some alcohol — think a glass of wine with dinner — can be perfectly healthy, according to some studies.

    One published in BMJ Open in 2013 found typical drinking patterns in mothers, meaning not abstaining or binging, were associated with slightly better brain development in their babies. This echoes the results of a 2010 study that found children born to light drinkers actually performed better on cognitive tests than those whose mothers followed the no-booze rule. A separate study published in Alcohol and Alcoholism suggested that drinking a glass of wine a week during pregnancy leads to better mental health outcomes for kids by age 7.

    Light drinking, according to a 2013 study published in Acta Obstetricia Et Gynecologica Scandinavica. limits negative emotions, such as depression and anxiety. The authors found 10 percent of women in Norway looked to alcohol to cope. The habit also seems to be more common in the UK, Ireland, and Australia .

    Zero-tolerance policy

    In 2015, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) pushed back firmly against the idea that light drinking was OK for pregnant women. They published a clinical report promoting a zero-tolerance policy for drinking, stating alcohol-related birth defects were completely preventable if women abstained from alcohol use. These include fetal alcohol spectrum disorders. the most severe of which is fetal alcohol syndrome. It can hinder brain development ; stunt height, weight, and head size; and alter facial shape and features.

    When NPR wrote about the AAP report, the article’s comment section erupted in debate. One commenter said anything they saw on the topic conflated all drinking with moderate to heavy drinking. Another agreed that women should abstain, while a third suggested it’s worthwhile to weigh the harm of drinking while pregnant against the psychological benefits of said consumption because, again, pregnancy can be a stressful and difficult time. There are also up to 10 percent of women who drank while pregnant and did not report any big problems in their children, per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    Janet Williams, a professor of pediatrics at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, told NPR it’s impossible to tell what level of drinking is considered safe. Not finding strong evidence for something, similar to how the BMJ found light drinking led to better brain development in babies, isn’t the same thing as giving women the go-ahead to open a bottle of Pinot.

    It’s for this reason that the CDC released its own guidelines this past February, Dr. Soha Elgharib, an OBGYN with Torrance Memorial Physician Network in Torrance, Calif. told Medical Daily. Both the CDC and AAP are trying to reinforced the no-drinking policy it recommends for women: “It doesn’t matter if it’s a beer or wine — no drinking whatsoever,” Elgharib said.

    Alcohol-free relief

    Since women who continue to drink once they get pregnant have said it helps soothe the stress and anxiety of pregnancy and planning for delivery, Elgharib recommends other equally effective coping mechanisms.

    For women who are planning to get pregnant, taking prenatal vitamins a couple months in advance helps with nausea,” she said. “If it was not planned, women can adjust their diet and avoid triggering foods.” Greasy meals, tomatoes and red sauces, carbonated beverages and, you guessed it, alcohol can increase feelings of nausea, according to Healthline .

    For everything else, particularly any issues with mood, Elgharib said women should talk with their doctor. Generally speaking, after her patients attend parenting classes, their anxiety levels drop off, she said. But mood swings have to do with hormones, and every woman’s levels vary, she added.

    So, if you’re expecting and were hoping for the all clear to pop open a beer, sorry — it’s far from clear that it’s safe. If it’s any consolation, most of the negative symptoms pregnant women experience pass after the first trimester.

    Investor s Business Daily Reduces Print Schedule

    Investor s Business Daily is revamping its print edition and reducing its schedule of five issues per week to one, effective May 2nd, the financial news and research outlet announced.

    The move involves a reallocation of resources to enhance the brand s digital operations on its newly-relaunched, mobile-optimized Investors.com, according to the company.

    We all know trends for printing a daily publication point downward, and we are being proactive with this move, IBD president Jerry Ferrara tells Folio. With more readers and subscribers shifting their habits to mobile-first and our customers need for more real-time actionable analysis, this was the right time to make the move. Unlike a number of publishers, we are actually profitable and have been for many years. By taking this step, we will grow profitability and stay focused for long-term success.

    Talking Biz News, which first reported the transition, says about 20 newsroom jobs will be eliminated.

    IBD was one of the pioneers in installing a digital paywall; it s website and digital revenues have been largely subscription-based since the early 2000 s. Although print circulation has remained mostly steady in recent years, it pales in comparison to the over 200,000 paid subscribers as recently as 2005, according to the Alliance for Audited Media. Between digital replica and non-replica editions, digital subscribers, on the other hand, now outnumber print subscribers by a wide margin.

    By freeing up resources from a reduced print schedule, the brand aims to provide greater value to its growing number of digital subscribers.

    Some of the content pieces [on Investors.com] are going to be coming from new and fresh angles, which will be taking more time and resources to produce, Ferrara continues. Furthermore, more topical features and an enhanced cover story for the weekly print edition will take on more of these resources.

    Elaborating on those content changes for the printed product, Ferrara says many of the features that previously lived in the brand s Tuesday and Friday editions will be incorporated and shifted to a more future-looking, actionable focus for the week ahead.

    No changes have been specified for IBD s digital subscription rates, which generate a significant share of the company s revenue.

    Subscription revenue leads the way with advertising and other revenues such as live events and licensing also driving the bottom line, Ferrara tells Folio. We are much more diversified than a traditional publisher and already over half of our total revenues come from digital.

    While IBD has the benefit of a robust and developed digital subscription model already in place, Ferrara expects more publishers to transition their digital operations to a paid-content model in the near future.

    The question is how many will succeed. The next recession is going to significantly hurt many publishers and I think many will be forced out of business both traditional and digital publishers. Too many question marks exist with strictly ad-supported models unless you have massive scale like Facebook and Google. Between ad viewability issues and ad blockers, publishers who don t diversify into subscription products/paywalls, events or brand extensions/licensing programs will be in some trouble, Ferrara concludes.

    Canadian business counts, June 2015

    Nationally, there were 1,250,822 active businesses with employees in June.

    In addition, there were 2,586,343 active businesses without employees and with annual revenues greater than $30,000.

    Note to readers

    Canadian business count s p reviously called Canadian business pattern s p rovide counts of active businesses by industry classification and employment-size categories for Canada and the provinces and territories. Canadian business counts are based on the same criteria that were used to calculate Canadian business patterns. Data are available in CANSIM tables 552-0002 and 553-0002.

    The counts are compiled from the Business Register, Statistics Canada’s central listing of Canadian businesses. They are based on the statistical concept of ‘location ‘ that is, each operating location is separately counted, including cases where one business comprises multiple locations. For example, a retail business with 10 stores represents 10 businesses in the Canadian business counts. Generally, among Canadian businesses, 99% are single-location enterprises.

    Changes to the Business Register’s methodology or business industrial classification strategies can bring about increases or decreases in the number of active businesses reported in the Canadian business counts. As a result, the data do not represent changes in the business population over time. Statistics Canada recommends users not to use the data as a time series.

    Friday September 2, 2016

    (This is Brian Hamilton filling in for Mark Vickery while he is on vacation)

    Stock futures inched forward today, as all eyes will be on this morning s unemployment rate, and nonfarm payrolls data. The unemployment rate is expected to drop to 4.8% from 4.9%, and is seen as the last major hurdle for the Feds before they decide to raise rates or not during their September meeting.

    Oil prices shot up overnight as Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that he would like for Russia and OPEC to make a deal regarding a production cap. President Putin went on to say that he would likely support a plan to crimp production at the G20 summit in China next week. Lastly, Putin said that Russia is prepared to sell a 19.5% stake in Rosneft PJSC, the country s largest listed oil producer, as early as the end of 2016.

    In Europe, producer prices in the euro region rose by +0.1%, the lowest monthly reading since April. Also, the European Union started their two day meetings today; the major issues being discussed are the fallout from the Brexit, and global banks attempting to preserve their access to the single market.

    Five Investing Pitfalls To Avoid, According to Investor s Business Daily #how

    Five Investing Pitfalls To Avoid, According to Investor s Business Daily

    Big stock market winners look a lot alike — they have strong earnings and sales growth, a dynamic new product or service, leading price performance and rising mutual fund ownership. Interestingly, successful investors share similar traits.

    Top investors always keep their losses small; they never average down in price; they don’t immediately shun a stock because it has a high price-earnings ratio (P/E Ratio); and finally, they pay attention to the general health of the market when they buy and sell stocks.

    Yet, at the same time, many investors still operate using unsound principles. Successful investors learn to avoid the common pitfalls, and follow these insights that can put you well on your way to becoming a better investor.

    Buying Low-Priced Stocks
    What sounds better? Buying 1,000 shares of a $1 stock or buying 20 shares of a $50 stock? Most people would probably say the former because it seems like a bargain, with more opportunity for big increases from owning more shares. But the money you make in a stock isn’t based on how many shares you own. It’s based on the amount of money invested.

    Many investors have a love affair with cheap stocks, but low-priced stocks are generally missing a key ingredient of past stock market winners: institutional sponsorship.

    A stock can’t make big gains without the buying power of mutual funds, banks, insurance companies and other deep-pocketed investors fueling their price moves. It’s not retail trades of 100, 200 or 300 shares that cause a stock to surge higher in price, it’s big institutional block share trades of 10,000, 20,000 or more that cause these great jumps in price when they buy — as well as great price drops when they sell.

    Institutional investors account for about 70% of the trading volume each day on the exchanges, so it’s a good idea to fish in the same pond as they do. Stocks priced at $1, $2 or $3 a share are not on the radar screens of institutional investors. Many of these stocks are thinly traded so it’s hard for mutual funds to buy and sell big volume shares.

    Remember: Cheap stocks are cheap for a reason. Stocks sell for what they’re worth. In many cases, investors that try to grab stocks on the cheap don’t realize that they’re buying a company mired in problems with no institutional sponsorship, slowing earnings and sales growth and shrinking market share. These are bad traits for a stock to have. Institutions have research teams that seek out great opportunities, and because they buy in huge quantities over time, consider piggybacking their choices if you find these fund managers have better-than-average performance.

    The reality is that your prospect of doubling your money in a $1 stock sure sounds good, but your chances are better of winning the lottery. Focus on institutional quality stocks.

    Avoiding Stocks With High P/E Ratios
    “Focus on stocks with low P/E ratios. They’re attractively valued and there’s a lot of upside.” How many times have you heard this statement from investment pros?

    While it’s true that stocks with low P/E ratios can go higher, investors often misuse this valuation metric. Leaders in an industry group often trade at a higher premium than their peers for a simple reason: They’re expanding their market share faster because of outstanding earnings and sales growth prospects.

    Stocks on your watch list should have the traits of past big stock market winners we mentioned earlier: leading price performance in their industry group, top-notch earnings and sales growth and rising fund ownership, to name a few. A dynamic new product or service doesn’t hurt either.

    Stocks with “high” P/E ratios share a common trait: their performance shows there’s plenty of bullishness about the company’s future prospects. For example: In Aug 2003, stun-gun maker Taser International had a P/E of 44 before a 900% increase. At the time, the market was bullish about the firm’s earnings and sales growth prospects. The market turned out to be right. For five straight quarters, Taser has posted triple-digit earnings and sales gains.

    More great examples come from the medical, retail, and oil and gas sector, which were all strong performers in the 2003-2004 period. The table below shows leading stocks in the sectors that staged big price runs from seemingly high P/E ratios. In every case, it was explosive fundamentals that drove their stock price.

    At end-Oct 2004, the average P/E Ratio of stocks in the S P 500 Index was around 17.

    Letting Small Losses Turn Into Big Ones
    Insurance policies help us minimize risk when it comes to our health, home or car. In the stock market, most people don’t even think about buying insurance policies with individual stocks but it’s a good practice.

    Cut your losses in any stock at 7% or 8% and you’ll never get hit with a big loss. This is your insurance policy. If you buy stocks at the right time, they should never fall 7-8% below your purchase price.

    A small loss in a stock can easily be overcome. It’s the big ones that can do serious damage to a portfolio. Take a 50% loss on a stock, and it would need to rise 100% to get back to break-even. But if you cut your losses at 7% or 8%, a single 25% gain can wipe out three 7%-8% losses.

    Here’s a set of hypothetical trades to illustrate the point. Even if you had made these seven trades over a period of time – and taken losses on five of them – you would still come out ahead by more than $3,700. That’s because the two stocks that worked out resulted in a combined profit of $5,500. And the five losses – all capped at 7% or 8% – added up to $1,569.

    The rationale for that 7% Sell Rule was never clearer than in the bear market that began in Mar 2000. It caused unnecessary, severe damage to many investors’ portfolios. Small losses in tech stocks snowballed into huge ones. Some stocks lost 70%-80% or more of their value. Some will never reclaim their old highs. Others may, but it’ll be a long road back. All successful investors share one trait: they firmly recognize the importance of protecting hard-earned capital by selling fast when a stock declines 7% or 8% from where they bought it.

    If a stock you own starts to fall on expanding trading volume, it’s usually better to sell first and ask questions later, rather than the other way around. Keep losses small to avoid severe damage. You can always re-enter the game if you’ve only lost 7%. Don’t ever look back after a smart sell, even if the stock rebounds. You have no way of knowing its future, so you are best off reacting to what your stock is telling you right now. Learning this trait is hard — but it will save you a great deal in the long run.

    Averaging Down
    Averaging down means you’re buying stock as the price falls in the hopes of getting a bargain. It’s also known as throwing good money after bad or trying to catch a falling knife. Either way, trying to lower your average cost in a stock is another risky proposition.

    For example, take Amazon.com between June and Oct of 2004. Its chart revealed much institutional selling by mutual funds and other big investors.

    In June, it was a $54 stock. In July, it was a $45 stock. Investors who bought in at $45 may have thought they were getting a bargain, but they weren’t paying attention to multiple heavy-volume declines in the stock. What’s the sense of buying a stock when mutual funds and other big investors are selling big blocks of shares? That’s a tough tide to swim against.

    When Amazon released its earnings on Oct 21, it fell another 10% to around $37. In general, stock charts tell bullish or bearish stories long before headlines do. In Amazon’s case, heavy volume declines between July 8 to 23 told a bearish story.

    Buying Stocks In A Down Market
    Some investors don’t pay any attention to the current state of the market when they buy stocks. And that’s a mistake.

    The goal is to buy stocks when the major indexes are showing signs of accumulation (buying: heavy volume price increases) and to sell when they’re showing signs of distribution (selling: heavy volume price declines). Three-fourths of all stocks follow the market’s trend, so watch it each day, and don’t go against the trend. It’s not hard to tell when the indexes start to show signs of duress.

    Distribution days will start to crop up in the market where the indexes close lower on heavier volume than the day before. In this case, a strong market opening will fizzle into weak closes. And leading stocks in the market’s leading industry groups will start to sell off on heavy volume. This is exactly what happened at the start of the bear market in Mar 2000.

    When you’re buying stocks, make sure you’re swimming with the market tide, not against it.

    CAN SLIM™ and the IBD Way
    If you are a reader of Investor’s Business Daily (IBD) or any other of William O’Neil’s writings, you may have noticed that these five pitfalls compliment the CAN SLIM methodology of stock selection. By avoiding low-priced stocks, looking beyond the P/E, implementing a stop-loss plan, not averaging down and monitoring the overall market, you’ll be well on your way to a sound investing strategy based on years of studies and research from IBD.

    Investor s Business Daily Reduces Print Schedule

    Investor s Business Daily is revamping its print edition and reducing its schedule of five issues per week to one, effective May 2nd, the financial news and research outlet announced.

    The move involves a reallocation of resources to enhance the brand s digital operations on its newly-relaunched, mobile-optimized Investors.com, according to the company.

    We all know trends for printing a daily publication point downward, and we are being proactive with this move, IBD president Jerry Ferrara tells Folio. With more readers and subscribers shifting their habits to mobile-first and our customers need for more real-time actionable analysis, this was the right time to make the move. Unlike a number of publishers, we are actually profitable and have been for many years. By taking this step, we will grow profitability and stay focused for long-term success.

    Talking Biz News, which first reported the transition, says about 20 newsroom jobs will be eliminated.

    IBD was one of the pioneers in installing a digital paywall; it s website and digital revenues have been largely subscription-based since the early 2000 s. Although print circulation has remained mostly steady in recent years, it pales in comparison to the over 200,000 paid subscribers as recently as 2005, according to the Alliance for Audited Media. Between digital replica and non-replica editions, digital subscribers, on the other hand, now outnumber print subscribers by a wide margin.

    By freeing up resources from a reduced print schedule, the brand aims to provide greater value to its growing number of digital subscribers.

    Some of the content pieces [on Investors.com] are going to be coming from new and fresh angles, which will be taking more time and resources to produce, Ferrara continues. Furthermore, more topical features and an enhanced cover story for the weekly print edition will take on more of these resources.

    Elaborating on those content changes for the printed product, Ferrara says many of the features that previously lived in the brand s Tuesday and Friday editions will be incorporated and shifted to a more future-looking, actionable focus for the week ahead.

    No changes have been specified for IBD s digital subscription rates, which generate a significant share of the company s revenue.

    Subscription revenue leads the way with advertising and other revenues such as live events and licensing also driving the bottom line, Ferrara tells Folio. We are much more diversified than a traditional publisher and already over half of our total revenues come from digital.

    While IBD has the benefit of a robust and developed digital subscription model already in place, Ferrara expects more publishers to transition their digital operations to a paid-content model in the near future.

    The question is how many will succeed. The next recession is going to significantly hurt many publishers and I think many will be forced out of business both traditional and digital publishers. Too many question marks exist with strictly ad-supported models unless you have massive scale like Facebook and Google. Between ad viewability issues and ad blockers, publishers who don t diversify into subscription products/paywalls, events or brand extensions/licensing programs will be in some trouble, Ferrara concludes.

    Friday September 2, 2016

    (This is Brian Hamilton filling in for Mark Vickery while he is on vacation)

    Stock futures inched forward today, as all eyes will be on this morning s unemployment rate, and nonfarm payrolls data. The unemployment rate is expected to drop to 4.8% from 4.9%, and is seen as the last major hurdle for the Feds before they decide to raise rates or not during their September meeting.

    Oil prices shot up overnight as Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that he would like for Russia and OPEC to make a deal regarding a production cap. President Putin went on to say that he would likely support a plan to crimp production at the G20 summit in China next week. Lastly, Putin said that Russia is prepared to sell a 19.5% stake in Rosneft PJSC, the country s largest listed oil producer, as early as the end of 2016.

    In Europe, producer prices in the euro region rose by +0.1%, the lowest monthly reading since April. Also, the European Union started their two day meetings today; the major issues being discussed are the fallout from the Brexit, and global banks attempting to preserve their access to the single market.

    Canadian business counts, June 2015

    Nationally, there were 1,250,822 active businesses with employees in June.

    In addition, there were 2,586,343 active businesses without employees and with annual revenues greater than $30,000.

    Note to readers

    Canadian business count s p reviously called Canadian business pattern s p rovide counts of active businesses by industry classification and employment-size categories for Canada and the provinces and territories. Canadian business counts are based on the same criteria that were used to calculate Canadian business patterns. Data are available in CANSIM tables 552-0002 and 553-0002.

    The counts are compiled from the Business Register, Statistics Canada’s central listing of Canadian businesses. They are based on the statistical concept of ‘location ‘ that is, each operating location is separately counted, including cases where one business comprises multiple locations. For example, a retail business with 10 stores represents 10 businesses in the Canadian business counts. Generally, among Canadian businesses, 99% are single-location enterprises.

    Changes to the Business Register’s methodology or business industrial classification strategies can bring about increases or decreases in the number of active businesses reported in the Canadian business counts. As a result, the data do not represent changes in the business population over time. Statistics Canada recommends users not to use the data as a time series.

    Investor – s Business Daily Reduces Print Schedule #world #business #news

    Investor s Business Daily Reduces Print Schedule

    Investor s Business Daily is revamping its print edition and reducing its schedule of five issues per week to one, effective May 2nd, the financial news and research outlet announced.

    The move involves a reallocation of resources to enhance the brand s digital operations on its newly-relaunched, mobile-optimized Investors.com, according to the company.

    We all know trends for printing a daily publication point downward, and we are being proactive with this move, IBD president Jerry Ferrara tells Folio. With more readers and subscribers shifting their habits to mobile-first and our customers need for more real-time actionable analysis, this was the right time to make the move. Unlike a number of publishers, we are actually profitable and have been for many years. By taking this step, we will grow profitability and stay focused for long-term success.

    Talking Biz News, which first reported the transition, says about 20 newsroom jobs will be eliminated.

    IBD was one of the pioneers in installing a digital paywall; it s website and digital revenues have been largely subscription-based since the early 2000 s. Although print circulation has remained mostly steady in recent years, it pales in comparison to the over 200,000 paid subscribers as recently as 2005, according to the Alliance for Audited Media. Between digital replica and non-replica editions, digital subscribers, on the other hand, now outnumber print subscribers by a wide margin.

    By freeing up resources from a reduced print schedule, the brand aims to provide greater value to its growing number of digital subscribers.

    Some of the content pieces [on Investors.com] are going to be coming from new and fresh angles, which will be taking more time and resources to produce, Ferrara continues. Furthermore, more topical features and an enhanced cover story for the weekly print edition will take on more of these resources.

    Elaborating on those content changes for the printed product, Ferrara says many of the features that previously lived in the brand s Tuesday and Friday editions will be incorporated and shifted to a more future-looking, actionable focus for the week ahead.

    No changes have been specified for IBD s digital subscription rates, which generate a significant share of the company s revenue.

    Subscription revenue leads the way with advertising and other revenues such as live events and licensing also driving the bottom line, Ferrara tells Folio. We are much more diversified than a traditional publisher and already over half of our total revenues come from digital.

    While IBD has the benefit of a robust and developed digital subscription model already in place, Ferrara expects more publishers to transition their digital operations to a paid-content model in the near future.

    The question is how many will succeed. The next recession is going to significantly hurt many publishers and I think many will be forced out of business both traditional and digital publishers. Too many question marks exist with strictly ad-supported models unless you have massive scale like Facebook and Google. Between ad viewability issues and ad blockers, publishers who don t diversify into subscription products/paywalls, events or brand extensions/licensing programs will be in some trouble, Ferrara concludes.

    Five Investing Pitfalls To Avoid, According to Investor s Business Daily #business

    Five Investing Pitfalls To Avoid, According to Investor s Business Daily

    Big stock market winners look a lot alike — they have strong earnings and sales growth, a dynamic new product or service, leading price performance and rising mutual fund ownership. Interestingly, successful investors share similar traits.

    Top investors always keep their losses small; they never average down in price; they don’t immediately shun a stock because it has a high price-earnings ratio (P/E Ratio); and finally, they pay attention to the general health of the market when they buy and sell stocks.

    Yet, at the same time, many investors still operate using unsound principles. Successful investors learn to avoid the common pitfalls, and follow these insights that can put you well on your way to becoming a better investor.

    Buying Low-Priced Stocks
    What sounds better? Buying 1,000 shares of a $1 stock or buying 20 shares of a $50 stock? Most people would probably say the former because it seems like a bargain, with more opportunity for big increases from owning more shares. But the money you make in a stock isn’t based on how many shares you own. It’s based on the amount of money invested.

    Many investors have a love affair with cheap stocks, but low-priced stocks are generally missing a key ingredient of past stock market winners: institutional sponsorship.

    A stock can’t make big gains without the buying power of mutual funds, banks, insurance companies and other deep-pocketed investors fueling their price moves. It’s not retail trades of 100, 200 or 300 shares that cause a stock to surge higher in price, it’s big institutional block share trades of 10,000, 20,000 or more that cause these great jumps in price when they buy — as well as great price drops when they sell.

    Institutional investors account for about 70% of the trading volume each day on the exchanges, so it’s a good idea to fish in the same pond as they do. Stocks priced at $1, $2 or $3 a share are not on the radar screens of institutional investors. Many of these stocks are thinly traded so it’s hard for mutual funds to buy and sell big volume shares.

    Remember: Cheap stocks are cheap for a reason. Stocks sell for what they’re worth. In many cases, investors that try to grab stocks on the cheap don’t realize that they’re buying a company mired in problems with no institutional sponsorship, slowing earnings and sales growth and shrinking market share. These are bad traits for a stock to have. Institutions have research teams that seek out great opportunities, and because they buy in huge quantities over time, consider piggybacking their choices if you find these fund managers have better-than-average performance.

    The reality is that your prospect of doubling your money in a $1 stock sure sounds good, but your chances are better of winning the lottery. Focus on institutional quality stocks.

    Avoiding Stocks With High P/E Ratios
    “Focus on stocks with low P/E ratios. They’re attractively valued and there’s a lot of upside.” How many times have you heard this statement from investment pros?

    While it’s true that stocks with low P/E ratios can go higher, investors often misuse this valuation metric. Leaders in an industry group often trade at a higher premium than their peers for a simple reason: They’re expanding their market share faster because of outstanding earnings and sales growth prospects.

    Stocks on your watch list should have the traits of past big stock market winners we mentioned earlier: leading price performance in their industry group, top-notch earnings and sales growth and rising fund ownership, to name a few. A dynamic new product or service doesn’t hurt either.

    Stocks with “high” P/E ratios share a common trait: their performance shows there’s plenty of bullishness about the company’s future prospects. For example: In Aug 2003, stun-gun maker Taser International had a P/E of 44 before a 900% increase. At the time, the market was bullish about the firm’s earnings and sales growth prospects. The market turned out to be right. For five straight quarters, Taser has posted triple-digit earnings and sales gains.

    More great examples come from the medical, retail, and oil and gas sector, which were all strong performers in the 2003-2004 period. The table below shows leading stocks in the sectors that staged big price runs from seemingly high P/E ratios. In every case, it was explosive fundamentals that drove their stock price.

    At end-Oct 2004, the average P/E Ratio of stocks in the S P 500 Index was around 17.

    Letting Small Losses Turn Into Big Ones
    Insurance policies help us minimize risk when it comes to our health, home or car. In the stock market, most people don’t even think about buying insurance policies with individual stocks but it’s a good practice.

    Cut your losses in any stock at 7% or 8% and you’ll never get hit with a big loss. This is your insurance policy. If you buy stocks at the right time, they should never fall 7-8% below your purchase price.

    A small loss in a stock can easily be overcome. It’s the big ones that can do serious damage to a portfolio. Take a 50% loss on a stock, and it would need to rise 100% to get back to break-even. But if you cut your losses at 7% or 8%, a single 25% gain can wipe out three 7%-8% losses.

    Here’s a set of hypothetical trades to illustrate the point. Even if you had made these seven trades over a period of time – and taken losses on five of them – you would still come out ahead by more than $3,700. That’s because the two stocks that worked out resulted in a combined profit of $5,500. And the five losses – all capped at 7% or 8% – added up to $1,569.

    The rationale for that 7% Sell Rule was never clearer than in the bear market that began in Mar 2000. It caused unnecessary, severe damage to many investors’ portfolios. Small losses in tech stocks snowballed into huge ones. Some stocks lost 70%-80% or more of their value. Some will never reclaim their old highs. Others may, but it’ll be a long road back. All successful investors share one trait: they firmly recognize the importance of protecting hard-earned capital by selling fast when a stock declines 7% or 8% from where they bought it.

    If a stock you own starts to fall on expanding trading volume, it’s usually better to sell first and ask questions later, rather than the other way around. Keep losses small to avoid severe damage. You can always re-enter the game if you’ve only lost 7%. Don’t ever look back after a smart sell, even if the stock rebounds. You have no way of knowing its future, so you are best off reacting to what your stock is telling you right now. Learning this trait is hard — but it will save you a great deal in the long run.

    Averaging Down
    Averaging down means you’re buying stock as the price falls in the hopes of getting a bargain. It’s also known as throwing good money after bad or trying to catch a falling knife. Either way, trying to lower your average cost in a stock is another risky proposition.

    For example, take Amazon.com between June and Oct of 2004. Its chart revealed much institutional selling by mutual funds and other big investors.

    In June, it was a $54 stock. In July, it was a $45 stock. Investors who bought in at $45 may have thought they were getting a bargain, but they weren’t paying attention to multiple heavy-volume declines in the stock. What’s the sense of buying a stock when mutual funds and other big investors are selling big blocks of shares? That’s a tough tide to swim against.

    When Amazon released its earnings on Oct 21, it fell another 10% to around $37. In general, stock charts tell bullish or bearish stories long before headlines do. In Amazon’s case, heavy volume declines between July 8 to 23 told a bearish story.

    Buying Stocks In A Down Market
    Some investors don’t pay any attention to the current state of the market when they buy stocks. And that’s a mistake.

    The goal is to buy stocks when the major indexes are showing signs of accumulation (buying: heavy volume price increases) and to sell when they’re showing signs of distribution (selling: heavy volume price declines). Three-fourths of all stocks follow the market’s trend, so watch it each day, and don’t go against the trend. It’s not hard to tell when the indexes start to show signs of duress.

    Distribution days will start to crop up in the market where the indexes close lower on heavier volume than the day before. In this case, a strong market opening will fizzle into weak closes. And leading stocks in the market’s leading industry groups will start to sell off on heavy volume. This is exactly what happened at the start of the bear market in Mar 2000.

    When you’re buying stocks, make sure you’re swimming with the market tide, not against it.

    CAN SLIM™ and the IBD Way
    If you are a reader of Investor’s Business Daily (IBD) or any other of William O’Neil’s writings, you may have noticed that these five pitfalls compliment the CAN SLIM methodology of stock selection. By avoiding low-priced stocks, looking beyond the P/E, implementing a stop-loss plan, not averaging down and monitoring the overall market, you’ll be well on your way to a sound investing strategy based on years of studies and research from IBD.

    If a stock you own starts to fall on expanding trading volume, it’s usually better to sell first and ask questions later, rather than the other way around. Keep losses small to avoid severe damage. You can always re-enter the game if you’ve only lost 7%. Don’t ever look back after a smart sell, even if the stock rebounds. You have no way of knowing its future, so you are best off reacting to what your stock is telling you right now. Learning this trait is hard — but it will save you a great deal in the long run.

    Averaging Down
    Averaging down means you’re buying stock as the price falls in the hopes of getting a bargain. It’s also known as throwing good money after bad or trying to catch a falling knife. Either way, trying to lower your average cost in a stock is another risky proposition.

    For example, take Amazon.com between June and Oct of 2004. Its chart revealed much institutional selling by mutual funds and other big investors.

    In June, it was a $54 stock. In July, it was a $45 stock. Investors who bought in at $45 may have thought they were getting a bargain, but they weren’t paying attention to multiple heavy-volume declines in the stock. What’s the sense of buying a stock when mutual funds and other big investors are selling big blocks of shares? That’s a tough tide to swim against.

    When Amazon released its earnings on Oct 21, it fell another 10% to around $37. In general, stock charts tell bullish or bearish stories long before headlines do. In Amazon’s case, heavy volume declines between July 8 to 23 told a bearish story.

    Buying Stocks In A Down Market
    Some investors don’t pay any attention to the current state of the market when they buy stocks. And that’s a mistake.

    The goal is to buy stocks when the major indexes are showing signs of accumulation (buying: heavy volume price increases) and to sell when they’re showing signs of distribution (selling: heavy volume price declines). Three-fourths of all stocks follow the market’s trend, so watch it each day, and don’t go against the trend. It’s not hard to tell when the indexes start to show signs of duress.

    Distribution days will start to crop up in the market where the indexes close lower on heavier volume than the day before. In this case, a strong market opening will fizzle into weak closes. And leading stocks in the market’s leading industry groups will start to sell off on heavy volume. This is exactly what happened at the start of the bear market in Mar 2000.

    When you’re buying stocks, make sure you’re swimming with the market tide, not against it.

    Investor s Business Daily Reduces Print Schedule

    Investor s Business Daily is revamping its print edition and reducing its schedule of five issues per week to one, effective May 2nd, the financial news and research outlet announced.

    The move involves a reallocation of resources to enhance the brand s digital operations on its newly-relaunched, mobile-optimized Investors.com, according to the company.

    We all know trends for printing a daily publication point downward, and we are being proactive with this move, IBD president Jerry Ferrara tells Folio. With more readers and subscribers shifting their habits to mobile-first and our customers need for more real-time actionable analysis, this was the right time to make the move. Unlike a number of publishers, we are actually profitable and have been for many years. By taking this step, we will grow profitability and stay focused for long-term success.

    Talking Biz News, which first reported the transition, says about 20 newsroom jobs will be eliminated.

    IBD was one of the pioneers in installing a digital paywall; it s website and digital revenues have been largely subscription-based since the early 2000 s. Although print circulation has remained mostly steady in recent years, it pales in comparison to the over 200,000 paid subscribers as recently as 2005, according to the Alliance for Audited Media. Between digital replica and non-replica editions, digital subscribers, on the other hand, now outnumber print subscribers by a wide margin.

    By freeing up resources from a reduced print schedule, the brand aims to provide greater value to its growing number of digital subscribers.

    Some of the content pieces [on Investors.com] are going to be coming from new and fresh angles, which will be taking more time and resources to produce, Ferrara continues. Furthermore, more topical features and an enhanced cover story for the weekly print edition will take on more of these resources.

    Elaborating on those content changes for the printed product, Ferrara says many of the features that previously lived in the brand s Tuesday and Friday editions will be incorporated and shifted to a more future-looking, actionable focus for the week ahead.

    No changes have been specified for IBD s digital subscription rates, which generate a significant share of the company s revenue.

    Subscription revenue leads the way with advertising and other revenues such as live events and licensing also driving the bottom line, Ferrara tells Folio. We are much more diversified than a traditional publisher and already over half of our total revenues come from digital.

    While IBD has the benefit of a robust and developed digital subscription model already in place, Ferrara expects more publishers to transition their digital operations to a paid-content model in the near future.

    The question is how many will succeed. The next recession is going to significantly hurt many publishers and I think many will be forced out of business both traditional and digital publishers. Too many question marks exist with strictly ad-supported models unless you have massive scale like Facebook and Google. Between ad viewability issues and ad blockers, publishers who don t diversify into subscription products/paywalls, events or brand extensions/licensing programs will be in some trouble, Ferrara concludes.

    Five Investing Pitfalls To Avoid, According to Investor s Business Daily

    Big stock market winners look a lot alike — they have strong earnings and sales growth, a dynamic new product or service, leading price performance and rising mutual fund ownership. Interestingly, successful investors share similar traits.

    Top investors always keep their losses small; they never average down in price; they don’t immediately shun a stock because it has a high price-earnings ratio (P/E Ratio); and finally, they pay attention to the general health of the market when they buy and sell stocks.

    Yet, at the same time, many investors still operate using unsound principles. Successful investors learn to avoid the common pitfalls, and follow these insights that can put you well on your way to becoming a better investor.

    Buying Low-Priced Stocks
    What sounds better? Buying 1,000 shares of a $1 stock or buying 20 shares of a $50 stock? Most people would probably say the former because it seems like a bargain, with more opportunity for big increases from owning more shares. But the money you make in a stock isn’t based on how many shares you own. It’s based on the amount of money invested.

    Many investors have a love affair with cheap stocks, but low-priced stocks are generally missing a key ingredient of past stock market winners: institutional sponsorship.

    A stock can’t make big gains without the buying power of mutual funds, banks, insurance companies and other deep-pocketed investors fueling their price moves. It’s not retail trades of 100, 200 or 300 shares that cause a stock to surge higher in price, it’s big institutional block share trades of 10,000, 20,000 or more that cause these great jumps in price when they buy — as well as great price drops when they sell.

    Institutional investors account for about 70% of the trading volume each day on the exchanges, so it’s a good idea to fish in the same pond as they do. Stocks priced at $1, $2 or $3 a share are not on the radar screens of institutional investors. Many of these stocks are thinly traded so it’s hard for mutual funds to buy and sell big volume shares.

    Remember: Cheap stocks are cheap for a reason. Stocks sell for what they’re worth. In many cases, investors that try to grab stocks on the cheap don’t realize that they’re buying a company mired in problems with no institutional sponsorship, slowing earnings and sales growth and shrinking market share. These are bad traits for a stock to have. Institutions have research teams that seek out great opportunities, and because they buy in huge quantities over time, consider piggybacking their choices if you find these fund managers have better-than-average performance.

    The reality is that your prospect of doubling your money in a $1 stock sure sounds good, but your chances are better of winning the lottery. Focus on institutional quality stocks.

    Avoiding Stocks With High P/E Ratios
    “Focus on stocks with low P/E ratios. They’re attractively valued and there’s a lot of upside.” How many times have you heard this statement from investment pros?

    While it’s true that stocks with low P/E ratios can go higher, investors often misuse this valuation metric. Leaders in an industry group often trade at a higher premium than their peers for a simple reason: They’re expanding their market share faster because of outstanding earnings and sales growth prospects.

    Stocks on your watch list should have the traits of past big stock market winners we mentioned earlier: leading price performance in their industry group, top-notch earnings and sales growth and rising fund ownership, to name a few. A dynamic new product or service doesn’t hurt either.

    Stocks with “high” P/E ratios share a common trait: their performance shows there’s plenty of bullishness about the company’s future prospects. For example: In Aug 2003, stun-gun maker Taser International had a P/E of 44 before a 900% increase. At the time, the market was bullish about the firm’s earnings and sales growth prospects. The market turned out to be right. For five straight quarters, Taser has posted triple-digit earnings and sales gains.

    More great examples come from the medical, retail, and oil and gas sector, which were all strong performers in the 2003-2004 period. The table below shows leading stocks in the sectors that staged big price runs from seemingly high P/E ratios. In every case, it was explosive fundamentals that drove their stock price.

    At end-Oct 2004, the average P/E Ratio of stocks in the S P 500 Index was around 17.

    Letting Small Losses Turn Into Big Ones
    Insurance policies help us minimize risk when it comes to our health, home or car. In the stock market, most people don’t even think about buying insurance policies with individual stocks but it’s a good practice.

    Cut your losses in any stock at 7% or 8% and you’ll never get hit with a big loss. This is your insurance policy. If you buy stocks at the right time, they should never fall 7-8% below your purchase price.

    A small loss in a stock can easily be overcome. It’s the big ones that can do serious damage to a portfolio. Take a 50% loss on a stock, and it would need to rise 100% to get back to break-even. But if you cut your losses at 7% or 8%, a single 25% gain can wipe out three 7%-8% losses.

    Here’s a set of hypothetical trades to illustrate the point. Even if you had made these seven trades over a period of time – and taken losses on five of them – you would still come out ahead by more than $3,700. That’s because the two stocks that worked out resulted in a combined profit of $5,500. And the five losses – all capped at 7% or 8% – added up to $1,569.

    The rationale for that 7% Sell Rule was never clearer than in the bear market that began in Mar 2000. It caused unnecessary, severe damage to many investors’ portfolios. Small losses in tech stocks snowballed into huge ones. Some stocks lost 70%-80% or more of their value. Some will never reclaim their old highs. Others may, but it’ll be a long road back. All successful investors share one trait: they firmly recognize the importance of protecting hard-earned capital by selling fast when a stock declines 7% or 8% from where they bought it.

    If a stock you own starts to fall on expanding trading volume, it’s usually better to sell first and ask questions later, rather than the other way around. Keep losses small to avoid severe damage. You can always re-enter the game if you’ve only lost 7%. Don’t ever look back after a smart sell, even if the stock rebounds. You have no way of knowing its future, so you are best off reacting to what your stock is telling you right now. Learning this trait is hard — but it will save you a great deal in the long run.

    Averaging down means you’re buying stock as the price falls in the hopes of getting a bargain. It’s also known as throwing good money after bad or trying to catch a falling knife. Either way, trying to lower your average cost in a stock is another risky proposition.

    Ahead of Wall Street

    Friday September 2, 2016

    (This is Brian Hamilton filling in for Mark Vickery while he is on vacation)

    Stock futures inched forward today, as all eyes will be on this morning s unemployment rate, and nonfarm payrolls data. The unemployment rate is expected to drop to 4.8% from 4.9%, and is seen as the last major hurdle for the Feds before they decide to raise rates or not during their September meeting.

    Oil prices shot up overnight as Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that he would like for Russia and OPEC to make a deal regarding a production cap. President Putin went on to say that he would likely support a plan to crimp production at the G20 summit in China next week. Lastly, Putin said that Russia is prepared to sell a 19.5% stake in Rosneft PJSC, the country s largest listed oil producer, as early as the end of 2016.

    In Europe, producer prices in the euro region rose by +0.1%, the lowest monthly reading since April. Also, the European Union started their two day meetings today; the major issues being discussed are the fallout from the Brexit, and global banks attempting to preserve their access to the single market.
