If your company only offers a 401(k), health insurance and a flexible vacation schedule, then you’re missing out on the hottest employee benefit of 2017: student loan repayment assistance.

In the 2015 American Student Assistance survey, 76% of respondents said that if a prospective employer offered a student loan repayment benefit, it would be a deciding or contributing factor to accept the job.
While only 4% of companies currently offer such a benefit, according to the Society for Human Resource Management, and employees are typically responsible for income taxes on the assistance received, expect this percentage to increase in the coming year.

The consideration of the contrary has been a theme all week. And here in ” Don’t Run With the Crowd: Embrace the Contrary.” Miami madness (of a real estate kind) Mark Grant is scared by our currency’s strength. Danielle on scenarios. Boockvar to subscriber Bad Golfer! JC Penney ( JCP) short puts–a 100% win. (Shorting options frequently ends differently!) Just say no to closed-end muni-bond funds. DRYS is all wet. Could iPhone manufacturing be coming back home? On inflation breakevens–a picture that speaks volumes. The market moved higher from the “get go”–in large measure it seems to be a response to the better economic data this morning. At 3 p.m. stocks were near the day’s highs. I shorted The Cisco Kid last night. Sticking with this short rental. I added to my ProShares UltraShort S&P500 ETF ( SDS) long (growing ever larger). My net short exposure–is now between small and medium-sized at the close. The U.S. dollar, as discussed above, continued to rip higher against the euro. I am concerned. Mark Grant is concerned. The market is not concerned. The price of crude oil (down $0.20) settled lower after yesterday’s robust gains. Gold fell $9 as it continues to break down–closing in on $1,200. Ag commodities: wheat up $0.07, corn up $0.04, soybeans up $0.05 and oats up $0.02. Lumber up $7 following the big housing number this morning. Bonds schmeissed … iShares Barclays 2

So we find ourselves in the position we have for most of this year: positive on the market averages but less confident in what stocks to buy. While banks have clearly been the flavor of the day we have generally avoided those names. Both Citigroup (C) and Bank of America (BAC) are only now hitting six year highs and we have never advocated chasing winners. Meanwhile the staid, safe defensive stocks (value) like P&G (PG), Coke (KO), and Philip Morris (PM) are lagging. The dichotomy might be illustrated by retailers where Best Buy has been roaring while Gap Stores has been tanking…

The long saga regarding Pandora Media Inc. (NYSE: P) has finally come to a head. Well, maybe. Rather than KKR & Co. L.P. (NYSE: KKR) investing $150 million, Sirius XM Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: SIRI) will be investing up to $480 million in the streaming music rival. With its ticketing unit sale taking place as well, it might seem that Pandora is getting a great deal and helping to bolster its books.

One can argue that the boo birds have a lot of fair reasons to be bearish. The stock is at its highest point in more than a decade, prompting valuation concerns. The company continues to court Pandora (NYSE:P) in public, a potential purchase that the market generally isn’t very excited about. There’s also the incessant fear that the smartphone revolution and the connected car will dismiss satellite radio as transitory and expensive entertainment.
