They recently merged with a competitor, URS, to increase their exposure to energy and to transportation.

Financial stress during the holidays isn’t limited to overspending on gifts. Too often, stress builds after those extended visits with family where you start wondering just what’s happening with Mom and Dad’s cash.

As we host holiday dinners or visit more frequently with elderly parents and relatives, sometimes we spot signs that a loved one’s financial decision-making has been declining.

Maybe it’s constant talk about winning the lottery. Maybe it’s a garage full of unopened boxes from QVC. Maybe it’s a much smaller checking account balance than you’d expect for retirees who have a fairly good pension.

“You don’t have to reach the level of dementia before your financial decision-making is impacted,” said Peter A. Lichtenberg, director of the Institute of Gerontology at Wayne State University in Detroit.

    "A trend we've seen developing slowly but steadily [is one] wherenew channels are being developed to reach cannabis consumers, primarily due to limits in advertising. There is so much regulation in the space that, in such an entrepreneurial environment where there are really no incumbent leaders, people are trying to be creative and figuring out ways to reach the cannabis consumer, both as an undeserved demographic and, just one that has still got that taboo around it, [leading] to larger players not necessarily getting involved yet." "Basically, they are trying to figure out ways to reach the consumer without direct TV advertising and stuff like that.”

    The stock market continued to climb sharply on Wednesday, sending major market benchmarks to record highs yet again and propelling the Dow Jones Industrials up more than 100 points. Economic data continued to support the notion that the U.S. economy remains strong, and rising inflation levels led many to conclude that the Federal Reserve is more likely than ever to follow through on its promise to keep lifting short-term interest rates in 2017. Rising bond yields reflected investors’ reluctance to hold onto fixed-income investments in anticipation of higher rates, prompting some to shift assets into the stock market. Several companies also reported, andFortress Investment Group (NYSE:FIG), Editas Medicine (NASDAQ:EDIT), and Hertz Global Holdings (NYSE:HTZ) were among the top performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so well.

In a few markets, these store closures may sufficiently rationalize the supply of retail space. But that’s the exception, not the rule.

This is the first in a short series of articles that I will publish over the next several weeks in which I assess stocks within the oil and gas sector, from Houston-based Conoco Phillips (NYSE:COP) to Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM). Shares of E&P companies have largely trended downward in lockstep with depressed commodities prices dating back to 2014 and have significantly underperformed almost all other sectors. Shares of these companies are on average currently sitting nearly 20% below their respective 52-week highs. But, with fresh OPEC production cuts in place through early next year and record predictions for summer driving in the U.S., is now the time to “buy the dip” on an E&P energy company?

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Briar]

    Looking for a quick, money-making trading idea? Put FORM Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ:FH) on your watchlist, if not yet in your portfolio. FH shares are knocking on the door of a breakout move, and one more nudge could do the trick.

    There are a couple of factors in play here. One of the is the converging wedge pattern that’s developed after the October-December finally stabilized. The upper boundary of that wedge at $2.40 has been tested several times since late last year, but FORM Holdings could never get past the hurdle. At the same time, several key moving average lines seem to be acting as support — even if unevenly — keeping FH positioned well for a breakout effort.

  • [By John Udovich]

    Thanksgiving is almost here but the exit of both Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation (NYSE: PPC) and Smithfield Foods (NYSE: SFD) to focus on their chicken or pork businesses (the latter was also acquired by the Chinese) leaves just two big Thanksgiving turkey stocks, Hormel Foods Corporation (NYSE: HRL) and Seaboard Corporation (NYSEAMEX: SEB), for investors to consider. According to the American Far Bureau, a 16-pound turkey will (on average) come in at a total of $22.74 this year or roughly $1.42 per pound for a decrease of 2 cents per pound or a total of 30 cents per whole turkey, compared to 2015. The price drop may be a transition back to the norm as the significant bird flu outbreak last year hurt the nations supply of both turkey and eggs.
