Retirement security for the elderly is being threatened by high debt, cautioned a new report by the Employee Benefit Research Institute.

&l;p class=&q;tweet_line&q;&g;&a;ldquo;(They) are placing themselves at risk of running short of money,&a;rdquo; the researchers found.&l;/p&g;

They added while asset accumulation gets talked about the most in retirement planning more attention should be paid to debt which can eat away at nest eggs.

It’s a widely established fact (based on years of historical evidence) that banks and other lenders typically prosper when interest rates are rising. In previous rate-tightening cycles, the financial sector was usually among the market’s top performers.

—Recommended Link— Create A 10%+ Income Stream For Life
We’re sitting on a collection of the safest, most generous monthly payers available. And while $11,200 in dividend checks is a welcome addition to anyone’s income, investors also love racking up capital gains as high as 446%. Start generating a 10%+ income stream for life today from these consistent companies.

As I’ve discussed before in my High-Yield Investing premium newsletter, banks can feast in these conditions because the rates they charge borrowers on loans usually rise faster than the rates they pay to depositors. That widens net interest margins (NIMs) and fattens the bottom line.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Steve Symington]

    Still, some individual stocks underperformed the indexes. Read on to learn why Gannett (NYSE:GCI), Barnes & Noble (NYSE:BKS), and Samsung Electronics (NASDAQOTH:SSNLF) fell today.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Barnes & Noble Inc. (NYSE: BKS) has been the markets punching bag over the past couple of years, and things dont seem to be changing anytime soon. The bookstore released its most recent quarterly results before the markets opened on Thursday, and this was met with investor trepidation.

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    My colleague Dan Kline believes there’s also an opportunity for Barnes & Noble (NYSE:BKS) to gain share in this space. Best known for books, it has also long been a retailer of specialty toys and games, and opening up its shelves to more mass-market toys could give it a wedge into the industry.Certainly this is a possibility, but like Walmart, Target, and other retailers, Barnes & Noble has no special knowledge or expertise in the space to allow it to make a grand entrance. It’s just not a market it knows well, which means that another type of retailer that could make a pronounced move in the space faces the same kinds of hurdles.

  • [By Daniel B. Kline]

    That leaves a hole in the market, one that will be filled partially by independent stores, but still leaves an opportunity for one struggling retailer. Unfortunately, the CEO of that retailer, Barnes & Noble (NYSE:BKS), has recently commented that his chain plans to reduce its assortment of toys.

Hot Medical Stocks To Buy Right Now: Nu Skin Enterprises Inc.(NUS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Nu Skin Enterprises (NUS) is a direct selling company, which develops and distributes personal care products and nutritional supplements that are sold under the Nu Skin and Pharmanex brands. This stock closed up 5.4% at $92.96 in Monday’s trading session.

    Monday’s Volume: 2 million

    Three-Month Average Volume: 900,802

    Volume % Change: 85%

    From a technical perspective, NUS ripped higher here right above some near-term support at $85 with heavy upside volume. This move pushed shares of NUS into breakout and new 52-week-high territory, since the stock took out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $88.20 to $89.69. This move also pushed shares of NUS above the upper-end of its recent range that saw the stock trend between $82 to just above $89.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in NUS as long as it’s trending above support at $85 and then once it sustains a move or close above Monday’s high of $93.33 with volume that this near or above 900,802 shares. If we get that move soon, then NUS will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that move are $100 to $105.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks For 2019

It’s known colloquially as the Midas touch. That’s what Warren Buffett used to turn a $150,000 investment in 1971 into $11 million. In this case, the investment was made in a beach house in Laguna Beach, California.

Buffett, who is famous for his buy-and-hold-almost-forever investing style, paid the equivalent of $900,000 in 2017 dollars for the six-bedroom, six-and-a-half bath house, but even that’s a return of more than 1,000% over 46 years.

Buffett and his first wife bought the house primarily because she liked it. At the time, Laguna Beach was not the up-scale enclave it is currently, but it had potential, as they say. He told The Wall Street Journal that he is selling it now because his family no longer uses it much since his first wife’s death in 2004.

Lisa Mandell at Realtor.com examined both the purchase and the sale of Buffett’s beach house for some tips on a winning investment strategy.

Listen only to those you know and trust
Clearly the first Mrs. Buffett had an eye for a good buy and Mr. Buffett is not likely to have married a fool. Her recommendation was all that was necessary.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks For 2019: Kate Spade & Company(KATE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Kate Spade (KATE) caught a bounce on Wednesday when the Wall Street Journalreported that it was actively seeking a buyer. Since then, we’ve learned that the fashion accessories retailer looks set to auction itself off to the highest bidder, with the process potentially beginning next month, with bidders potentially including Coach (COH) and Michael Kors (KORS). In a note today, SunTrust Robinson Humphrey analystPamela Quintiliano and team contend that Kate Spade could fetch as much as $23 a share:

    Getty Images

    Looking at recent historical deals, we arrive at a $18-$23 potential deal range. We analyzed transactions that have been announced over the past four years and involved companies catering to a higher income customer. These deals include Southern Tide (acquired by Oxford Industries (OXM)), Joe’s Jeans (acquired by Sequential Brands Group (SQBG)), prAna (acquired by Columbia Sportswear (COLM)), The Jones Group (acquired by Sycamore Partners [private] and Juicy Couture (acquired by Authentic Brands Group [private]). The average EV/EBITDA multiple of these transactions are 12.9x (in line with KATE’s 5-year historical average of 12.1x) and implies a potential deal range of $22-$23. When taking the average of recent (F13-16) deals implies an ~10.5x EV/EBITDA multiple. When applying the ~10.5x multiples to KATE’s trailing EBITDA, we arrive at an $18- $19 potential share price.

    Shares of Kate Spade have gained 1.1% to $18.70 at 2:08 p.m. today, while Coach has declined 0.2% to $34.95, Michael Kors is little changed at $42.86, Oxford Industries has fallen 0.7% to $60.38, Columbia Sportswear has climbed 1.4% to $58.60, and Sequential Brands Group has jumped 3.7% to $4.77.

    Coach (COH) rose to the top of the S&P 500 today after reports that Kate Spade (KATE) had put itself up for sale caused shares of fashion-accessory retailers to rise.

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    Kate Spade & Co (NASDAQ: KATE) was down, falling around 14 percent to $19.60 after it was reported the company would spend more time to negotiate the Coach Inc (NYSE: COH) offer.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Time, time, time. See what’s become of Kate Spade (KATE), as investors look around at its possibilities…and don’t like what they see. That’s the takeaway today following Kate Spade’s earnings release, and update on a potential takeover.

    Getty Images

    Kate Spade reported a profit of 1 cent a share, missing forecasts for 7 cents, on sales of $271.2 million, well below analyst expectations for $299 million. And Kate Spade also updated investors on its efforts to sell itself, without offering much of an update at all.

    Cowen’s Oliver Chen and team still expect a deal to happen but lower the probability of a deal occurring to 70% from 80%. They explain why:

    …formal language on deal prospects articulates process is proceeding in a timely manner with no definitive timetable and no assurance that process will result in a transaction. We still expect a deal to happen, but do lower our probability from 80% to 70% given the likelihood that potential buyer(s) and KATE have not agreed on a clearing price in earlier rounds of negotiation. We believe a bidder such as Coach (COH) does not want to overpay, is disciplined about managing ROIC, and returns and synergies split may be more rational at an offer price in the range of $22-25. We continue to believe KATE has a long global growth runway ahead with opportunities for store growth abroad, further expansion into non-handbag categories, and supply + digital synergy potential…We rate KATE Market Perform and lower our price target to $21 (was $27). Our updated valuation is based on ~10x our FY18E adj. EBITDA or $284mm.

    Investors, however, want to see a deal get done: Shares of Kate Spade have tumbled 6.6% to $18.12 at 3:26 p.m. today, while Coach has declined 0.5% to $39.51, and Michael Kors (KORS), also rumored to be interested in an acquisition, has fallen 1.1% to $36.92.
