Are you about to lose your Facebook and Google exposure? The sector shuffle explained

In a couple of months, drastic sector changes are coming to the S&P and MSCI indices which have potential implications to your investment portfolio. Some of the biggest names in tech, Netflix, Facebook, Google and others are changing sector classifications and if you aren't aware then it could have a major impact on your investment portfolio. Morgan Stanley has called the upcoming realignment "unprecedented" noting that there has only been one similar kind of sector change in the history of industry indexes when the real-estate sector was spun out of the financial group. This is different in that it is shifting some of the largest companies to a new sector called communication services.

7 months later: Bitcoin from mania to pain trade

Roughly 7 months ago, I wrote the blog post titled "Bitcoin mania will end in tears." Given my experience during the internet stock bubble of 1999, it felt like bitcoin and crypto were in a similar period of boom soon to be followed by bust. Those who said "this time is different" were proven wrong, again.

US stocks outpacing international again in 2018

Heading into 2018, I listened to many strategy calls from the leading Wall Street players and the consensus view was pounding the table on international stocks over US stocks. Their call was in favor of international because of cheaper valuations and long-term under-performance. This didn't sit well with me. Sure valuation is cheaper but there is a reason for it. The European economy has been recovering from significant issues with a deep Greek recession, the surprise Brexit, and Deutsche Bank whose stock is trading below its crisis 2009 low. Just this week, the ECB cut their growth forecasts and announced they will keep rates at record lows for at least another year.

Wang Brothers named on Investopedia 100 list of top influential financial advisors

Andrew Wang and Chris Wang were named on the Investopedia 100 list of influential financial advisors for the second consecutive year. Investopedia, a leading online source of trusted financial information and services, today announced its second annual Investopedia 100, a ranking of influential financial advisors based on social, digital and event clout.

The Investopedia 100 seeks to measure influence. It seeks to quantify the impact that advisors have on their clients and the broader financial community. Influence isn’t about being popular. It’s about helping others (although being popular helps if one’s popularity is tied to the mission of educating investors). In developing the list, Investopedia’s data sciences and editorial teams identified advisors across the country who are best able to engage with their audience across platforms and measured applicants’ reach, frequency of posting, and amplification.

Sinemia review: how to go to the movies for $5 or less

When I was in high school in the early 1990s, the local theater had student discounts for $4.95 movie tickets. It was a good deal saving a dollar and getting to see the latest blockbuster on the big screen. Today, ticket prices have soared to $15 at my favorite Regal Cinema and in New York City a standard 2D movie costs $17 and 3D is $21. Those prices are steep especially if you are taking the whole family. It is no wonder that people are forgoing theaters and often choosing streaming over the big screen. However, technology companies are trying to disrupt the space and get people back to the theaters.
