Top Heal Care Stocks To Watch Right Now

Total unfunded liabilities in state and local pensions have roughly quintupled in the last decade.

You read that right—not doubled, tripled, or quadrupled—quintupled. That’s nice when it happens on a slot machine, not so nice when it’s money you owe.

You will also notice in the chart that much of that change happened in 2008.

Why was that?

That’s when the Fed took interest rates down to nearly zero, meaning it suddenly took more cash to fund future payments.

According to a 2014 Pew study, only 15 states follow policies that have funded at least 100% of their pension needs. And that estimate is based on the aggressive assumptions of pension funds that they will get their predicted rate of returns (the “discount rate”).

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Own For 2019

It’s been a couple of weeks since Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK.A, NYSE:BRK.B) released its annual letter to shareholders. By now, investors and media alike have had a chance to digest everything Warren Buffett had to say about the year that just passed.

For 2017, there was no bigger news story than the $29 billion windfall to the company’s net worth, thanks to the reduction in the federal corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%. Berkshire Hathaway isn’t the only company to benefit from the tax cut. But it is one of the most widely followed, so Buffett’s comments on the subject traveled fast.

As I went through the entire letter, I found it to be one of the least entertaining in recent years. Sure, there were the usual lighthearted moments, but it didn’t come across nearly as folksy as in past years. Perhaps the Oracle of Omaha has nothing left to say.

For me, the tidbit that caught my attention — you’d need a microscope to find it — was a brief mention of BNSF, the company’s railroad subsidiary:

    With the mixed signals coming out of OPEC, oil prices could be quite volatile until the organization makes it clear what it intends to do. That could have an effect on financially weaker oil companies that desperately need higher oil prices to provide them with extra cash to firm up their financial foundations. Stronger producers, on the other hand, should continue to do well no matter what OPEC decides since they built their businesses to thrive at much lower oil prices. Three that stand out are ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP), Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC), and EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG).

    Monday was a positive day on Wall Street, as major benchmarks jumped following an uneventful weekend, tapering their gains as the session came to a close. Some had feared that China might retaliate once again after the U.S. issued a second round of tariffs against the nation with the world’s second-largest economy, but the expected fireworks didn’t come, putting market participants more at ease. The beginning of earnings season in the next week will also distract investors from geopolitical issues, perhaps allowing indexes to climb further. Yet some individual stocks had difficulties that sent their shares lower. Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX), Menlo Therapeutics (NASDAQ:MNLO), and MGIC Investment (NYSE:MTG) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.
