  8. 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]

  12. 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.

  15. 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]

  22. 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]

  27. Best option in a 529 plan or general tips for a college-age investor? (08/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I'm new to investing, and currently a freshman in college trying to help myself out down the road. I'm going premed, and since I have a long ways to go (money-wise and year-wise) I opened a 529 account using Utah's plans so I can consistently track and contribute to it. I want to ease the medical school debt burden hahaha :) Just some extra info: I do have a full-tuition scholarship and a nice setup for housing, so basically all the money I am earning from my job at the moment I want to put into stocks or my 529 plan. My question is, what should I consider when deciding the different investment options? I currently have all of my money invested in the Vanguard Growth Index option, but it doesn't seem to have been doing very well this year.

  31. Shareholder voting: Where to get independent information and advice (for big companies)? (11/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hello, r/stocks. I am trying to be a responsible investor and vote on the issues presented to shareholders for various annual meetings. The problem is that I really don't know how to effectively find information on the people and proposals beyond the recommendation of the board. For example, Ford ($F) is holding a meeting and presented this proposal, on which the board is recommending a "no" vote: Relating to Consideration of a Recapitalization Plan to Provide That All of the Company's Outstanding Stock Have One Vote Per Share. Is there a place or method that people use to find independent recommendations on shareholder voting? Obviously, this would be mostly for big companies; I don't expect much info on an OTC junior mining venture, etc. Thanks for any advice! And if I am asking the wrong questions, please feel free to point me in the right direction.   submitted by   /u/Dry_Tortuga_Island [link]   [comments]

  34. ODP Corporation (ODP) shifts its focus from retail operations to digital transformation (05/05/2021 - AlphaStreet)
    Shares of The ODP Corporation (NASDAQ: ODP) were up 7% on Wednesday. The stock has gained 55% since the beginning of the year and 113% in the past 12 months. The company reported mixed results for the first quarter of 2021, with earnings surpassing expectations while revenue fell short. ODP also announced that it was splitting into two independent, public companies. Quarterly performance Total sales for Q1 2021 fell 13% year-over-year to $2.4 billion and was shy of analysts’ projections. Adjusted EPS of $1.21 remained unchanged from last year but surpassed expectations. Sales during the quarter were hurt by fewer number of retail stores being in service as well as a reduction in sales caused by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Both product and service revenues witnessed double digit declines during the quarter. ODP recorded double-digit sales declines across all its business divisions mainly due to store closures and other effects related to the pandemic. Even though store sales suffered, other channels picked up pace during the quarter. Within the Business Solutions Division, the pandemic impacted operations driving sales 16% lower versus the prior year but demand in ecommerce climbed 3%. Sales in the Retail Division fell 10% as the company closed several underperforming stores and thereby had fewer retail outlets at the end of Q1. At the same time, ODP saw a 35% growth in its buy online, pick up in store (BOPIS) offering. The CompuCom Division saw sales fall 17% as the pandemic led to lower service volumes and the malware incident led to lower billed service revenues. Digital transformation During the quarter, ODP made progress on its digital transformation initiatives. The company integrated the P2P eProcurement software platform BuyerQuest into its new technology platform business thereby expanding its customer base and its pipeline of opportunities. Capex decreased to $13 million in the quarter compared to last year as the company reduced its investments in retail operations while focusing more on its digital transformation, ecommerce capabilities and distribution network. Spin-off ODP announced that it is spinning off its Business-to-Business (B2B) division into an independent company. It will distribute the shares of the new company as a tax-free dividend to ODP’s shareholders who will own 100% of the equity in both the independent, public companies. The spin-off is expected to be completed during the first half of 2022. This move is expected to help both companies pursue their own strategies with their specific set of investment opportunities and growth objectives.

  44. What is net worth? (28/02/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    “What is net worth?” It’s a common question. We hear the term a lot, but it’s not always clear what it means. The good news is that it’s actually a fairly simple concept to understand – and it’s something you can grow. Here’s a rundown of everything you should know.  What is net worth? Basically, it’s the value of your assets once you deduct everything you owe.   Your net worth can be made of many assets, including: Cash Investments Pensions Property Cars Valuables  While debts can include: Student loans Mortgages  Credit card debt  Car finance  Think of it this way: if you decided to sell everything you own tomorrow, the money you could get back is your net worth.  How do you calculate your net worth? Luckily, it’s simple to calculate. List everything you own.  Calculate how much each asset is worth. You might have a definite number, or you can use an estimate.  List all of your debts.  Deduct your debts from your asset total, and there you have it!  Does it change every year? It can, yes. Your net worth is just a snapshot of what you’re ‘worth’ financially at any moment in time. For example, once you’ve paid off some debt, it might increase.  Essentially, it’s a useful measure of your overall financial health. If you don’t own much and you are accruing debt, it could be a sign that you need to budget better or start investing in your future.  What’s the difference between net worth and income? To be clear, they are not the same. Your income is just what you earn each year. You could earn £100,000 and rack up £200,000 in debts, so income doesn’t mean wealth. Net worth, on the other hand, is what you’re actually worth financially at any given moment in time.  A earns £50,000 per year but their net worth is £100,000.  B earns £100,000 per year but their net worth is only £20,000.  A has a greater net worth even though they earn less. What’s a ‘good’ net worth? There’s no right answer to this. It all depends on your personal circumstances. Generally, though, it’s good if your net worth grows rather than shrinks over time.  It can increase with age, but not always. It depends on multiple factors including your spending habits.  Don’t get too caught up on what you think you should have in the bank by a certain age. It’s never too late to build your wealth! Is negative net worth a thing? Yes. If you tally everything up and it turns out you have more debts than assets, your net worth is negative. Don’t panic, though. This is pretty common and it can happen at any stage in life.  More importantly, it’s possible to turn a negative into a positive.  How do I grow my net worth? There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to this, but here are some tips to help you get started. 1. Start investing Whether it’s opening a bank account or learning how to buy and sell shares, investing can help you grow your assets over time. Spend a while researching your options and always get financial advice if you don’t know where to start. Remember that every investment carries some sort of risk. 2. Pay down debt  It’s simple: if you pay down debt, you reduce your liabilities. Sure, it might be a slow process, but it’s part of the long game. Just pay off what you can afford when you can. Another bonus? Paying off debt can help to boost your credit score.  3. Spend wisely  Some assets, like collectables and real estate, can grow in value over time. Other items, like clothes and furniture, can go down in value. Sure, you need to buy some disposable goods, but try to limit how much money you spend on these items. You can put the extra towards, for example, your pension, savings or credit card debt.   4. Boost your income We know that income isn’t the same as net worth, but that doesn’t mean it’s irrelevant. Remember: the more you earn, the more you can put towards savings and investments. You could think about getting a side hustle or finding a way to make money online for more cash. Takeaway What is net worth? Well, think of it this way: it offers a useful snapshot of your financial health at any given time.

  46. 3 tips to get the most from your Amex Business charge cards before May (17/03/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    If you’re an American Express business card holder, you probably already know that the card comes with plenty of perks and benefits. Now, Amex is giving you even more opportunities to make the most from your business charge card before May. [top_pitch] 1. Get your Amex business card welcome bonus Amex is currently running one of its biggest welcome bonuses ever for its two premium business credit cards, the Amex Business Gold Card and the Amex Business Platinum Card.  If you sign up for the Amex Business Gold Card and spend £5,000 in the first three months of your membership, you can earn 50,000 bonus Membership Rewards points. And if you sign up for the Amex Business Platinum Card, you stand to earn 100,000 bonus Membership Rewards points if you spend £10,000 in the first three months after sign up. This is an offer that’s hard to surpass. With 50,000 points you can get four return flights from London to select European destinations such as Berlin, Germany. And 100,000 points is enough for four business class return flights from London to Berlin. And these points don’t have to be used just for travel. You could choose to redeem them for a wide range of other rewards for your business and employees. These include gift cards, vouchers, checkouts at a growing list of major retailers, tickets, hotel credits and upgrades. This offer runs until 9 April 2021, so there’s still time to apply.  2. Redeem your Amex points for double the value Until 30 April 2021, Amex is doubling the value when you use your Membership Rewards points to pay for items on your card statement. Normally, if you use your Membership Rewards points for statement credit, to reduce what you owe by redeeming points for the items in your statement, you get £4.50 per 1,000 points (or 0.45p per point). With the new offer, you get £9 per 1,000 points (which is 0.9p per point). So, whatever items you need for your business, you can use your points to pay for them and you’ll get double the value. [middle_pitch] 3. Use the two Amex business cards offers together To get maximum value, you can combine the two offers (if you are eligible for both). If you do, it means that you can cash in: £900 (£9 x 100,000 ÷ 1000) of statement credit on the Amex Business Platinum Card £450 (£9 x 50,000 ÷ 1000) of statement credit on Amex Business Gold Card Remember that the offer to double the value when you use your Membership Rewards points to pay for items on your card statement ends on 30 April 2021. So, if you hope to use your welcome bonus points for statement credit to double their value, you have to trigger them before that date. For more information and analysis on the different cards that make up the Amex business portfolio, including their perks and benefits as well as fees and limitations, take a look at our American Express Business Cards review page. “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.

  47. Any nice long-term market tips or trends? (10/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    A friend of mine has just become a millionaire from the popular weed stock (TLRY et al) and I have missed the boat. I am always missing the boat. I don't think I've ever actually been on the boat. I am always standing, alone on the pier, holding bags that aren't even mine, waiting for the god damn boat. I had the chance to get in when the stocks were in the single digits and this is not the first time this has happened. So, my question is, on the nose and outrageously direct, does anyone have a nice long-term tips? Cheap stocks a bit off the radar? I know every Tom, Dick and Harry has their own opinions, so I guess I'm just generally asking for advice or discursive tips in markets or even specific stocks that some of you more savvy investors may know about.   submitted by   /u/bennyj22 [link]   [comments]
