EPF can be easily transferred from one company to the other through UAN (Universal Account Number) if one changes jobs. However, in case of PPF, changing the account from one bank to bank to another is a huge hassle if you go by anecdotal evidence. In case of fixed deposits, there is no portability among banks.

    The ‘Jolt’ investing tip of the day actually goes out to C-suite executives across the word: Always watch your back because someone is always vying for the top gig. Reading the various Volkswagen (VLKAY) CEO shake-up news, it’s pretty clear new CEO Herbert Diess undermined his now former boss Matthias Müller. He reportedly built up a base of support among board members and shareholders to appoint him as CEO, despite Müller’s success turning around VW after the emissions scandal. Crazy, but hey it’s vicious out there.

Yet according to a recent poll by YouGov, there was far more negative media coverage of Tesla than Porsche following the raid.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Watch For 2019

General Electric said Tuesday it will “adjust” its dividend once a just-announced spinoff of its health-care business is completed.

GE shares rose in premarket trading after the beleaguered industrial conglomerate said it would shed GE Healthcare and sell its stake in energy company Baker Hughes. The company said it would focus on the aviation, power and renewable energy businesses.

But lower in the announcement, the company addressed its payout, a touchy subject for the company since any change to its policy could send long-time retail holders of the blue chip headed for the exits:

“GE expects to maintain its current quarterly dividend, subject to Board approval, until GE Healthcare is established as an independent entity. At that time, the new GE Healthcare Board of Directors will determine GE Healthcare’s dividend policy, which GE expects to reflect healthcare industry practices. Also at that time, the GE Board expects to adjust the GE dividend with a target dividend policy in line with industrial peers.”

GE said the spinoff is expected to be completed within 12 to 18 months.

Top Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now

Warren Buffett’s the most famous buy-and-hold investor on the planet, so if his company, Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-B) (NYSE:BRK-A), is selling a stock in its portfolio, you might want to consider selling it, too.

Fortunately, Berkshire Hathaway reveals which stocks the Oracle of Omaha is selling in its quarterly 13F filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The company’s latest filing shows he sold shares in Verisk Analytics, Inc. (NASDAQ:VRSK), IBM (NYSE:IBM), and Phillips 66 (NYSE:PSX). Is it time for these stocks to exit your portfolio, too?

A long relationship ending?

When Verisk went public in 2009, Warren Buffett was the only owner not to sell any shares. Clearly, he believed that the long-term opportunity associated with crunching actuarial data for insurers was undervalued in the IPO, but he might not think that anymore.

Top Heal Care Stocks To Watch Right Now

UBS analyst Brennan Hawken and team explain why they initiated Wells Fargo (WFC) with a Sell rating today:

Andrew Harrer/Bloomberg News

We see risks to Wells Fargo’s revenue growth and credit performance, which coupled with a valuation on the high end of peers and consensus estimates that have not come down much, putsWells Fargo shares at risk of underperformance in our view. While we recognize thatWells Fargo has a strong management team and excellent franchise, we believe these strengths are well understood and therefore likely to be largely priced in.

Wells Fargo’s ability to maintain flat fee revenues seems unlikely: Given the limited upside from rates, we see fee revenues as the greatest component of uncertainty in Wells Fargo’s revenue forecasts. With mortgage revenues unlikely to be a source of revenue strength for some time, growth in WIM revenues is increasingly important. However, beta headwinds and weak retail risk appetites are likely to weigh on WIM revenues this year. Even beyond near-term headwinds, we believe Wells Fargo’s greater exposure to mass affluent clients means they are more exposed to downside from the pending DOL fiduciary proposal.
