Visa is boosting the 401(k) match it makes for its workers in the wake of the newly enacted Republican tax law.

The company says it will match 200% of employee contributions on up to 5% of a worker’s salary. Right now, it matches that much for contributions up to 3%.

“Tax reform in the United States will strengthen Visa’s competitive position globally and create new opportunities for Visa to invest in our business,” the company said in a statement to CNNMoney.

Visa (V) CEO Al Kelly told employees about the decision in an email dated Jan. 3. The existence of that memo was first reported Monday by CNBC, and Visa confirmed the email’s accuracy to CNNMoney.

Kelly said in his email that the tax plan “will generate substantial benefit to businesses with U.S.-based headquarters, including Visa, though a reduction in the overall corporate tax rate.”

The memo said the new benefit will apply to all U.S. employees except executive committee members, and that it kicks in late February.

    Thanksgiving is almost here but the exit of both Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation (NYSE: PPC) and Smithfield Foods (NYSE: SFD) to focus on their chicken or pork businesses (the latter was also acquired by the Chinese) leaves just two big Thanksgiving turkey stocks, Hormel Foods Corporation (NYSE: HRL) and Seaboard Corporation (NYSEAMEX: SEB), for investors to consider. According to the American Far Bureau, a 16-pound turkey will (on average) come in at a total of $22.74 this year or roughly $1.42 per pound for a decrease of 2 cents per pound or a total of 30 cents per whole turkey, compared to 2015. The price drop may be a transition back to the norm as the significant bird flu outbreak last year hurt the nations supply of both turkey and eggs.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    The stock market lost more ground on Friday, but major market benchmarks still managed to post healthy gains as 2016 drew to a close.

Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.
