  • Why the ‘smart money’ is bailing out of the bull market
    How about the fact that forward earnings are rolling over at a pace that's only been seen during recessions? Or the wipeout in commodity prices over the last few months, the kind typically seen during recessions?
  • What would the Dow look like if it included Apple?
    It may be by far the most valuable American company but Apple Inc still can’t get into at least one exclusive club – the 30-member Dow Jones Industrial Average. It is, though, hurting those who tie their investments to the performance of the venerable Dow, which was first calculated in 1896 and is still probably the best-known stock index in the world. Since Apple split its shares seven-for-one last June 6, it’s delivered investors a gain of more than 43 percent including dividend payments, and that has contributed almost one third of the Nasdaq 100’s return of 18.6 percent, according to ETF.com. Had Apple been substituted for 29 of the 30 Dow components last June, the index would have been higher.
  • How much more economic pain can Vladimir Putin take?
    It’s been a little more than six months since the full brunt of Western sanctions took force against Russia. By November, the combination of cheap oil and tighter sanctions was bleeding Russia of billions in budget revenue and had cut it off from the world’s largest capital markets.
