While parents like me aren&a;rsquo;t thrilled to be thinking about spending for back-to-school already, when every dollar counts, taking advantage of state sales tax holidays can help reduce costs.

That tends to coincide with the timing of back-to-school holidays. Here is a quick peek at states offering&a;nbsp;taxpayers a break on sales tax for back-to-school items this year:

Hot Tech Stocks To Invest In 2018

A researcher says the Pentagon exposed huge amounts of web-monitoring data in a security failure.

Anyone with a free Amazon Web Services account could have looked at the hoard of information stored in the cloud by the U.S. Defense Department, according to Chris Vickery, a researcher at cybersecurity firm UpGuard who discovered the exposure.

Amazon Web Services is a cloud platform that individuals, businesses and the government use for things like storing data and boosting computing power. Amazon said on its website it is best practice to restrict access to information stored in the cloud to “people that absolutely need it.”

The military databases hold at least 1.8 billion internet posts scraped from social media, news sites, forums and other publicly available websites, Vickery told CNN Tech. The posts are in multiple languages and originate from countries across the world, including the United States.

The information, which Vickery said goes back as far back as 2009, is held by U.S. Central Command (Centcom) and U.S. Pacific Command (Pacom). There’s no indication that malicious attackers accessed the databases. The Defense Department secured the data by October 1 after Vickery alerted officials of the problem in mid-September, he said.

“Formula for success: rise early, work hard, strike oil” – J. Paul Getty

I must confess to feeling kind of lonely at times this year being one of a handful of observers of the casino space, (and at times, the only one,) standing firm on my undiminished faith that Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS) valuations were dead wrong. Now, after the Macau Parisian has opened and LVS Q3 results knocked it out of the park I suddenly have lots of company. I’m bemused to see the bandwagon suddenly getting rather crowded.

There’s no room for gloat or vapid vainglory in my gene pool. I’ve had my share of missed calls – but the casino space is my home stamping grounds. But it is fair to point out that many prophets of doom since the 2015 junket crackdown ran for the exits or pooh-poohed my consistent call on SA that LVS was still worth $70 in my view. Others agreed with me but were less bullish on price. We’re not there yet to be certain. But as I have written before, if the trade holds steady at $60 or above, I feel the ramp-up to $70 or possibly higher by Q2 2017 will move into the speed lane.

    Early on Monday, analysts at Deutsche Bank lowered their price target on Occidental Petroleum Corporation (OXY) to reflect a lower-than-expected valuation of an asset that the oil and gas exploration company is trying to sell.

    Though the analysts lowered OXY’s price target from $114 to $109, they still maintain a “Buy” rating on the stock. The new price target suggests a 22% upside to the stock’s Friday closing price of $89.49.

    Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Sankey said, “Bloomberg Finance LP reports that Oxy is seeking sale of 40% of Mideast operations for around $8bn, which would imply $20bn total value for the unit. However reportedly some suitors are valuing the asset at around $15bn. This is a relatively negative valuation against our previous view that Oxy would be seeking $25+bn for its MENA business. We are cutting our price target to $109/share to reflect this lower implied valuation.”

    Occidental Petroleum shares were up 96 cents, or 1.07%, during pre-market trading on Monday. The stock is up 16.81% year-to-date.

Hot Blue Chip Stocks To Buy Right Now

Retirement investing is not what it used to be. In the old days, one could just invest in the safe stocks to buy, in blue chips, in a nice ladder of bonds, and do just fine.

Alas, the market has significantly changed. Much of this is due to the historically low interest rates weve had.

The problem with the Federal Reserves attempt to goose the economy is that it killed bond yields, forcing retired investors further out onto the risk curve, making it difficult to find safe stocks to buy. That has pushed stock prices far higher than they should be, if one subscribes (as I do) to the Peter Lynch theory that a stocks price should reflect its net income growth rate to be added to a list of stocks to buy.
