Retirement Is Lifes Most Expensive Purchase

OMB Looks Ready to OK Delay of Fiduciary Rule

CFPB Barred, for Now, From Naming Company Under Investigation

As the nation anticipates President Donald Trump’s first budget, which will inevitably detail tax measures that will take a hit, new research by the Investment Company Institute finds that Americans value the current tax incentives for retirement saving and “overwhelmingly” oppose changing them.

ICI, a trade group for mutual funds and ETFs, reports that U.S. households favor preserving retirement account features and flexibility, with 89% of all US households disagreeing with the statement that the government should take away the tax advantages of defined contribution accounts, and 90% voting against the idea of reducing the amount that individuals can contribute to DC accounts.

Top 10 Stocks To Invest In 2018: athenahealth, Inc.(ATHN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Athenahealth (ATHN) last night announced that its CFO and administrative chief, Kristi Matus, would be leaving the company. Her departure has not been embraced by investors, who have pushed shares lower today. Leerink’s David Larsen understands their concerns:

    In our view, the CFO departure may be indicative of internal operational challenges. We still think it is possible that Kristi Matus is seeking an environment that is not as demanding as ATHN, though this has not been confirmed by management. Management harped on the point that bifurcation is part of the strategic initiative of ATHN to reenergize the culture of the company, and Jonathan Bush noted how he himself hopes to spend more time on talent and culture and less time on entering new markets and building new products.

    We continue to believe that ATHN is facing challenges. We continue to believe the market is fundamentally slowing and bookings growth may become more lumpy as we progress through 2016. We still believe there will be a slow-down in the bookings growth rate b/c of a possible slow-down in the ambulatory EMR market and the fact that we are in the final payment year of Meaningful Use. Much of the call focused on Kristi Matus’s departure as a major loss for the company of a leader who was “masterful with investors.” According to management, the decision to split the CFO and CFAO responsibilities was not a reflection of her ability.

    Baird’s Matthew Gillmor and Sean McBride are less worried:

    The unexpected resignation of CFO Kristi Matus is disappointing, but the reasons for her departure seem somewhat understandable, in our view (potentially viewed bifurcation of CFO/CAO role as a demotion). We think incoming CFO Karl Stubelis is very strong and should provide helpful continuity, both internally and externally (currently serves as Controller and previously as acting CFO). Finally, the CFO change does not change our positive long-term thesi

    Shares of Athena Health (ATHN) are up 37% in just over a month. Is there still more room to run?

    Cramer said for years Athena had been a fast-growing stock, but as the company transitioned from growth to profitability, things began to get ugly. The company’s bombastic CEO, and his “colorful” personality began to rub shareholders the wrong way.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Meanwhile, earnings season continued to play out, and although the technology industry saw some extremely encouraging reports, not all stocks participated in the rally. Athenahealth (NASDAQ:ATHN), Synchrony Financial (NYSE:SYF), and Time (NYSE:TIME) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

    Under a single-payer system, healthcare becomes a regulated utility much like electricity with just a few large, best-in-class players. Athenahealth (Nasdaq: ATHN) could combine with Walgreen Boots Alliance (NYSE: WBA).

    This development will likely give battered mREITs like Annaly Capital (NYSE: NLY  ) , Armour Residential (NYSE: ARR  ) , and American Capital Agency (NASDAQ: AGNC  ) a huge boost as investors begin to feel less panic regarding a tapering of the current QE3 program. Markets have responded to the Summers announcement by soaring skyward, apparently feeling relief and confidence about the fate of the taper.

    It was just about one year ago that QE3 made its debut, and mortgage REITs, particularly agency-only players like Annaly Capital (NYSE: NLY  ) , Armour Residential (NYSE: ARR  ) , and American Capital Agency (NASDAQ: AGNC  ) began moaning about the increased competition for mortgage-backed securities guaranteed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Top Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now

Source: ThinkstockUntil about 2008 or so, discussion about the future price of crude oil was directed by the concept of peak oil. That is, when does the world reach peak production, after which the price of crude will skyrocket. In less than a decade, the discussion is now focused on the concept of “peak demand,” the point at which global demand for crude begins to decline.

The recent Oil & Money conference in London sharpened the focus on peak demand. Saudi Arabia’s minister of energy and industry, Khalid Al-Falih, told conference attendees that cutbacks in capital spending on exploration, forced on the industry by low prices for the past twoyears, could mean that shortfalls in supply are coming.

Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE: XOM) CEO Rex Tillerson disagreed:

Top 10 Gold Stocks To Invest In 2018

In the world of investing, many ideas are so widely accepted that they go unquestioned. But conventional thinking is often wrong.   Here's one piece of conventional investing wisdom we often hear: In times of panic, gold is a safe haven. Gold in your portfolio can help insure against losses when the stock market falls.   As it turns out, this piece of conventional wisdom is correct. A recent study proved it…   Two researchers in Ireland recently wrote a paper entitled "Reassessing the Role of Precious Metals as Safe Havens – What Colour Is Your Haven and Why?" They concluded that relative to many other assets, in many countries, precious metals act as safe havens in turbulent markets.   This is because gold marches to the beat of its own drum… especially during times of stress…   The researchers confirmed that gold is uncorrelated with most other financial assets. When two assets have a positive correlation (approaching a value of 1), their prices tend to move in the same direction. When assets have a negative correlation (approaching negative 1), they tend to move in opposite directions. A correlation close to zero means two assets move independently.

Top 5 Gold Stocks To Own Right Now

The dollar softened on Tuesday as escalating geopolitical tensions lured investors away from risky assets like stocks in favor of safety plays like the Japanese yen, gold and U.S. government debt.

Over the weekend, the U.S. military redirected a naval strike group, which includes the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, toward the waters off North Korea, sparking fears that the U.S. could launch a military strike against North Korea, market strategists said. Last week, President Donald Trump launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syrian airfield in retaliation for an chemical gas attack on civilians allegedly orchestrated by the Syrian government.
