  9. Retail investors left holding the bag when the stock market crashes (13/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    The poor retail investor ends up holding the bag when there is a stock market crash. Although there is misleading news by media and other sources, shouldn’t the retail investor do his own independent research extensively? After all it is his money he’s putting at risk... with all this inflation, asset prices rising and rates inevitably due to rise, how can the retail investor not suspect something is going on..? Investing at this top seems insane. It’s like feeling bad for someone who’s heavily in debt but the minute he pays off his car he goes back to the dealership to buy another brand new one, back into the never ending cycle of debt of financially illiterate people. Who is to blame? The media, analysts, the fed, or individuals themselves. I think all. What do you feel and will the stock market be fine or trend down from now?   submitted by   /u/ThePracticalInvestor [link]   [comments]

  10. Shenzhen issues the first registration document for independent insurance agents (21/07/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    On July 19, Shenzhen Banking and Insurance Regulatory Bureau and Shenzhen Market Regulatory Bureau jointly issued China’s first Guidelines on Registration Matters for Shenzhen Independent Individual Insurance Agents, guiding and standardizing the insurance business of Shenzhen independent agents and promoting the high-quality transformation and development of the industry. Specifically, the Guidance further clarifies the property orientation, conditions and standards, registration process, commercial registration and other rules of independent personal insurance agents in Shenzhen from the two aspects of business licensing and commercial management, and concentrates on solving the pain points in the development of independent agents in Shenzhen. Looking back, in December 2020, China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission issued the Notice on Matters Related to the Development of Independent Individual Insurance Agents, which put forward specific rules in terms of the positioning, conditions and standards, codes of conduct, selection mechanism, company management, supervision and management of independent individual insurance agents. This means that the independent individual insurance agent model has an institutional foundation, and insurance companies have rules to follow in exploring this model.

  15. Investing in TIPS (20/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    TIPS have historically been a terrible investment. Sure, they protect against inflation and are relatively stable, so they could potentially be part of a risk-averse portfolio, but they have always underperformed equities by a wide margin. Buy-and-hold with equities has always been a better strategy than buying TIPS. But with inflation related fears rising, I think that TIPS could be a much better investment in coming years despite the Fed trying to keep inflation artificially low.

  17. Why people don’t talk about their debt (and why that needs to change) (25/03/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    When it comes to talking about debt, not everybody is ready for it. StepChange’s Debt Awareness Week annual campaign runs from 22 to 28 March this year, and it’s never been a better year to pay attention. Debt management company Lowell is joining the effort in 2021, hoping to encourage people to seek advice and open up about their financial struggles. John Pears, managing director of Lowell explains, “Over the last 12 months, many people have found themselves struggling financially. Some may be in debt for the first time. Therefore, Debt Awareness Week is more important than ever this year.” [top_pitch] How do you talk about debt? It turns out that most people just don’t. In fact, research by Lowell found that 69% of people in debt won’t discuss their financial problems with anybody, not even their partners. And 53% cite embarrassment as the main reason for their silence, followed by not wanting to burden others (40%) and not believing family/friends need to know about it (38%). Other reasons for avoiding talking about debt include:  Not wanting people to think poorly of you (33%)  Believing it wouldn’t make a difference (25%) Not having anybody who would listen (10%)  The fact that it always ends in an argument (9%)  For Brits, this means that over £8.5 billion worth of debt is being kept in the dark. Debt can be tough to bring up, especially with those closest to you. Richard Lane, director of external affairs at StepChange explains, “Thousands are dealing with their debt alone, and have no one to talk to about it.” [middle_pitch] How do you explain debt? According to Lane, “The last year has been particularly tough on people’s finances, so it’s never been more important to open up and talk about debt.” “This Debt Awareness Week, we want to do as much as we can to destigmatise debt and get people talking about the issue. We want to encourage people to take #TheFirstStep towards getting debt advice.” Lowell’s research showed that 82% of people actually felt better after they opened up about their debt struggles. “The fact that 69% of people are not talking about their situation shows there is still a real stigma attached to debt,” says Pears. “Yet speaking to someone could really help individuals who are struggling. There’s no need to feel embarrassed. Having an initial discussion with a friend, family member or expert is the first step toward feeling financially stable.” Who can you talk to about debt? If you’re feeling overwhelmed, StepChange recommends picking one person you trust to talk to. If you’re in a serious relationship, that person should really be your partner. You don’t have to discuss specific numbers if doing so would make you uncomfortable. You can start by asking that other person to help you with some basics. Maybe they can help you create a budget or share tips on how to save money. If you feel unable to talk about debt with those around you, reach out to StepChange for impartial advice. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.

  21. Details behind AT&T’s debt (cross posted) (18/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    The article in NYT outlines why ATT has all this horrible debt. Sounds like incompetence. All three deals were failures. And take a look at that last paragraph below. They spent over $150M just in advisory fees in 3 years to end up where they were to begin with but with more debt. “After all of that deal-making, ATT is sitting on more than $170 billion in debt. As part of the deal with Discovery, ATT will get $43 billion to help reduce its debt load. (The spun-off media business will begin its independent life with $58 billion in debt.)” https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/18/business/ATT-WarnerMedia-Discovery.html?referringSource=articleShare The DealBook newsletter explains how ATT got here, in three key deals: 1..A $39 billion bid to buy T-Mobile. After regulatory pushback, in 2011 ATT walked away from an effort to become the country’s largest wireless company. T-Mobile paired up instead with Sprint, and the two went on to buy huge amounts of spectrum in the high-stakes battle for 5G, leaving ATT behind as it lobbies regulators to step in. The failed deal hit ATT with a $3 billion dollar breakup fee, at the time the largest ever. The $67 billion acquisition of DirectTV. In 2015, ATT bet on cable TV as a way to amass customers whom it could eventually convert to streaming. But DirectTV bled subscribers as customers cut the cord, and ATT unloaded a stake in the company last year to TPG that valued DirectTV at about a third of its acquisition price. The deal also cost ATT about $50 million in advisory fees, according to Refinitiv. The $85 billion acquisition of Time Warner. In 2018, Mr. Stephenson called the deal a “perfect match,” but the combined group struggled to invest in its telecom business while also spending enough to compete with the entertainment specialists at Netflix and Disney. Three years later, ATT is now spinning off the company so it can (re)focus on its quest for 5G market share. ATT paid $94 million in advisory fees to put the two companies together and an estimated $61 million to split them apart.   submitted by   /u/Dowdell2008 [link]   [comments]

  32. raising interest rates (28/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    they can't raise rate ihmo, if we only look at the US government, then they have around 30 trillion in debt (bonds), a lot of it is in short term bonds, so the debt is not gonna be paid down but merely rolled over into higher interest rate. By comparison, the federal government collect around 3 trillion annually in taxes etc. an interest rate of 2% would be the equivalent of the gov spending 20% of all tax income on paying interest rate on the debt. having elevated interest rate for a couple of years would financially cripple the US, it would unironically be a death-spiral, where the government issues new loans to cover the interest rate on existing loans.   submitted by   /u/luchins [link]   [comments]

  35. Begun, the Mortgage Wars have (05/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Yesterday Matt Ishbia, CEO of United Wholesale Mortgage ($UWM), declared war on his main competitors Rocket Mortgage ($RKT) and Fairway Independent Mortgage (not publicly traded) in a company update done on Facebook Live. Watch here: https://fb.watch/423ZojMyjC/ Wholesale lending to consumers through a network of independent mortgage brokers is UWM and FIM entire business and makes up about 25% of RKT's. Ishbia said UWM will no longer work with mortgage brokers that work with either RKT or FIM claiming that the other two companies use slimy tactics that hurt mortgage brokers. They are requiring that every mortgage broker sign an addendum agreeing to not work with RKT or FIM by March 15. UWM said that they had heard from about 580 mortgage brokers by last evening and that 550 had signed the addendum (there are an estimated 40,000 brokers in the US according to the Association of Independent Mortgage Experts) This will be a disaster for someone. If UWM can successfully prevent brokers from working with anyone but them, it will destroy FIM and put a big hole in RKT's income statement. If it doesn't work and brokers continue to work with RKT and FIM, UWM will fall apart unless they backtrack on their ultimatum.   submitted by   /u/desquibnt [link]   [comments]

  37. Please don’t support Doordash $DASH (13/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I’m not telling you what to do with your money financially but as a publicly traded company I feel it’s necessary to expose Doordash for its manipulative practices it uses on drivers. Doordash hides tips from drivers. The independent contractor driver has no idea how much money they are going to make from an order. The driver is forced to gamble in order to try and make any money using the service. For example if a customer tipped $20 Doordash will only show the driver $7 of the order until the order is completed. If the customer tipped nothing the driver won’t know if they are gambling on the order. Recently a group found a workaround to make orders transparent. To show the full amount of the orders. They shared this knowledge with all the drivers. Doordash never publicly acknowledged this but they never banned a driver for using it either. Instead Doordash quietly patched the ability to see the full order amount. Doordash can’t even develop a stable driver app but they are obsessed with manipulating drivers so much they prioritized this and patched it. Doordash uses in app psychological manipulation in order to get a driver to take unprofitable orders. New drivers have no idea they can decline orders without repercussion but the app forced you to basically decline the same order 4 times while you are driving in order to get to the next order. Doordash offers peak pay which is bonus pay to drivers to incentivize them to work during busy hours. The peak pay will say $5 extra pay per order from 5pm-9pm. The driver thinks they will make $5 extra per order however the app reduces and even removes the peak pay before it’s scheduled end time. Doordash does this simply to saturate the market. Once the market is saturated it takes the money away from the driver and hopes they will continue driving to take bad orders. The business model is oppressive for the driver. Some drivers have to decline hundreds of orders daily just to make $50. Prices going up with inflation? Guess what Doordash did? They reduced driver base pay from $3 per order to $2.50! Please don’t support this company. I hope the mods are okay with this.   submitted by   /u/420milfhunter69x [link]   [comments]
