  • U.S. oil prices fell below $49 a barrel on Thursday amid deteriorating gasoline futures and a higher dollar in the wake of the European Central Bank’s latest interest rate decision. Benchmark Brent and U.S. crude futures both fell more than 2 percent in late morning trade, extending losses to drop below their 200-day moving averages. The decline accelerated after the ECB left interest rates at zero percent, nudging the dollar higher. News that Libya had restarted two of its main oil fields after

  • The firm raised its rating on the tech giant two notches to outperform from underperform, a rare “double upgrade.” White House officials revealed on Wednesday President Trump’s plan for large tax cuts for repatriated offshore corporate profits and a reduction of the corporate tax rate. “In an environment of tax reform, we believe the company has the capacity to accelerate the company’s transition towards a diversified IT player.” The analyst cited how the company has $62 billion cash offshore, w

  • House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday there was no specific date for a vote on the latest proposal to repeal and replace major parts of Obamacare, saying Republican leaders would call that vote only when they know they will win it. Ryan, who won support from a key conservative House group on Wednesday for the revised bill, said, “I would argue that this is the bill that moderates would be more likely to vote” for. The speaker and President Donald Trump were badly embarrassed last month when Ryan

  • Owners plow profits back into a business, and the business itself is often 80 percent to 90 percent of their net worth, Stumpf estimated. In a fast-growth business, retained earnings should be low because the owner is reinvesting in the business. The smartphone store entrepreneur could have sold to a bigger chain or even at a higher price if his hand hadn’t been forced, Arora said. But he made good money and is now back with several new businesses, including one in the smartphone accessories mar

  • But his administration has found that despite the president’s hard-line rhetoric, many of his priorities have succumbed to political reality during his first 100 days in office. He vowed to begin within the first 100 days of his term, but his administration has not officially started. To reopen a trade deal, the White House must meet with lawmakers in both the House and Senate and then submit a formal notice of intent. “It is my privilege to bring NAFTA up to date through renegotiation,” Trump s

  • Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin did not commit Thursday when asked if he could promise President Donald Trump’s tax plan will not bust the federal deficit. In an interview Thursday on NBC’s “TODAY,” Mnuchin was asked if he could assure Americans that the White House’s massive tax cut proposal will be “revenue neutral and deficit neutral.” Mnuchin: Again, our objective, Matt, is to pay for this with economic growth. So Matt, yes, our principles are we want to pay for this with economic growth a

  • When asked if stocks are overvalued, Nobel laureate Robert Shiller supplies a simple answer: “yes.” And we’re in an oddball-enough mood now that we might,” Shiller said, referring to excitement surrounding President Donald Trump. “I’m reminded of Calvin Coolidge, who become president in 1923, and the market started going up, and there were people saying that valuation ratios were getting too high — for years! Although as Shiller also makes clear, investors shouldn’t obsess over the level of the

  • Nobel Prize-winning economist Robert Shiller is encouraging investors to go abroad as U.S. stocks hit fresh record highs. Their price-to-earnings ratios are much lower,” Shiller said Wednesday on CNBC’s “Trading Nation.” When we’re talking about the ‘Trump effect,’ that is primarily a U.S. effect.

  • You’re dying to apply for a killer job you just found. It looks nearly perfect. And, while there’s no perfect answer or formula for this, here are a few instances in which you should (and shouldn’t) take a run at a job that looks amazing, even it feels slightly out of reach.

  • The difference was primarily due to “significant strength in basketball sales” last year, Under Armour said. Under Armour also will open a “footwear building” in Nike’s home turf of Portland, Oregon, and, shift its focus to shoes priced at more than $100. “We don’t like it, and we don’t really accept it,” Under Armour Vice President David Bergman said on Thursday’s call. “A step up in competition from players, including Nike and Lululemon, is one of the reasons for Under Armour’s slower growth,”

  • In a new interview, he said market bulls are now essentially making a “binary bet on Trump and nothing else.” This plan will help the market if and only if it is passed by Congress, Schlossberg said. “If he doesn’t get anything done, I think you’re going to see a massive sell-off.” A significant amount of the market’s run since the election has to do with Trump and his agenda, Eddy Elfenbein, editor of the Crossing Wall Street blog, commented Wednesday. So the long case is really investing a lot

  • Tax reform appears just around the corner, potentially breathing new life into share buybacks and the companies that do them. Wall Street generally remains confident that a plan that passes Congress will include a cut in the tax rate for repatriation of profits — overseas earnings brought back to the U.S. — despite no mention of a specific rate in the Wednesday announcement of the Trump administration’s plan. The handout from the administration just read, “one-time tax on trillions of dollars he

  • They should not fear the stock market. Life’s financial challenges will eventually lure Millennials into the stock market, some market professionals say. “I don’t think Millennials will ever trust the stock market,” he says. Some Wall Street pros insist Millennials need the market more than the market needs them. On the other hand, Wall Street firms need Millennials’ cash to grow their own businesses through fees and commissions.

  • The Class of 2017 could be poised for a great financial start in the workplace — especially if they’re prepared to negotiate. Not only are hiring projections improved for this year; salary expectations are better, too. Half of employers plan to offer graduates higher pay compared to last year, according to a new survey from CareerBuilder. Nearly four in 10 companies expect to pay a starting salary of $50,000 or more, versus 27 percent which did last year. CareerBuilder polled 2,380 hiring manage

  • Millennials need to think of themselves as Generation Invest. Start investing, nowMillennials have a lot on their plates. All millennials need to do is commit to starting small and growing from there. Your piggy bank may be gathering dust in your parents’ basement but the lesson is still there. It’s a put it on the plastic world but when you use cash, take the change and immediately drop it into your piggy bank (or whatever your modern version of a piggy bank is).

  • President Donald Trump’s plan to roll back taxes in the hope that doing so will generate robust economic growth with little impact on debt and deficits is “absurd,” former Treasury Secretary and White House economic advisor Larry Summers said. In fact, Summers added in an interview with CNBC, that had he been asked to present such a plan with the notion that it would pay for itself, he would have refused. Summers served as head of the Treasury during the Bill Clinton administration and as senior

  • Ed Garden, Trian Partners CIO and co-founder said a huge shift has happened with public equity markets because stock “owners are acting like owners” and becoming more involved with how companies manage their business. “Public shareowners felt like if they didn’t like what was happening at a company, their only option was to sell.” Garden said the shift occurred as private equity firms have started to take bigger stakes in different companies, causing a transfer of wealth from public shareowners

  • The Ex-Im Bank is just one case in which Trump appeared to take feedback from CEOs into his policy decisions. After meeting with pharmaceutical executives Trump dropped his support for a plan backed by Democrats that would let Medicare negotiate bulk discounts for prescription drugs. Trump’s administration is in the process of making other major policy choices with corporate executives lobbying one way or another. He told CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street” Thursday that he is “pleased to see” the pol

  • Economists may be overestimating the growth boost President Donald Trump is giving the economy. The index rises when economic reports, like jobs, retail sales and consumer confidence are better than expected. Pearkes said there are also other factors at work, like the impact of energy prices on the economic data, but Trump was certainly a big one. Once he won, the sharp jump in upside surprises, from things like consumer confidence, helped drive the surprise index higher. The Citi economists ill

  • IEA’s analysis finds:Oil discoveries totaled 2.4 billion barrels in 2016, versus the average of 9 billion barrels in the last 15 years. Energy companies sanctioned 4.7 billion barrels of conventional oil resources for development, down 30 percent from 2015. Last year, just 13 percent of conventional oil projects that got the go-ahead were offshore. Those figures do not bode well for President Donald Trump’s goal of increasing offshore drilling in the U.S. He is expected to sign an executive orde
