Top 10 Financial Stocks For 2021

In order to be successful, it’s not enough just to save. You also have to know how to put the money you save to best use. That means knowing about some of the ways that the IRS offers tax benefits to those who take advantage of certain types of accounts, and using them to the fullest extent possible.

In particular, there are two tax breaks that the IRS offers every year, and most taxpayers can use one or both of them. But to use them, you have to act quickly, because the deadline for adding money to these accounts for the 2017 tax year is approaching fast. Below, we’ll look at these two different tax breaks — IRAs and health savings accounts — and whether you can benefit from using one or both of them in your financial planning.

Get money into an IRA

If you’ve made money from a regular job, a side gig, or your own business, then you’re allowed to save money in an IRA. The limit for the 2017 tax year is $5,500 if you’re younger than 50 or $6,500 if you’re 50 or older, as long as you’ve earned at least that much during the year. The deadline for making contributions for 2017 is the tax filing deadline of April 17, 2018. Even if you get an extension to file your taxes, you can’t get extra time to open an IRA.

Hot Low Price Stocks To Watch For 2019

Small SUVs are the hottest segment in the new car market right now. So maybe it shouldn’t be surprising that a big chunk of the new vehicle unveilings at the Los Angeles Auto Show were little crossover SUVs.

It seemed like there was an SUV popping out every time you turned around. For starters, Ford unveiled its new EcoSport just before the show with DJ Khaled doing the honors.

The Jeep Compass is another example of the car market’s madness for small-sized SUVs. The current version is a strong seller despite abysmal reviews. Consumer Reports gave it the lowest rating of any compact SUV and Car & Driver awarded it a mere 1.5 out of a possible five stars.

And yet, as of last month, Jeep Compass sales for the year were up 44%. According to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCAM), which makes Jeeps, the sales jump reflects the Compass’s relatively low price given all the desirable SUV features that it offers.

DJ Khaled unveils new Ford EcoSport on Snapchat

It’s too soon to know, of course, how good the new Compass is but it should at least be a vast improvement over the outgoing model. Since it’s a Jeep, engineers took off-road capability seriously in creating the new Compass. Two different full-time all-wheel-drive systems are available including a super-slow off-road “crawl” gearing ratio. “Trail Rated” versions can wade through 19 inches of water and climb over steep hills and out of tight ditches. At the same time, Jeep also promises better on-road behavior.

    Stocks to Watch Today: NKE, GRMN, FIT, FOSL, NAVI
    Nike Inc. (NYSE: NYSE) is facing a public relations problem this morning and shares are off nearly 2%. Last night, Duke University star basketball player Zion Williamson was injured in the opening minute of a marquee game against the University of North Carolina. Williamson slipped while dribbling and his Nike shoe split apart, causing him to fall and injure his knee. The No. 1 ranked Duke Blue Devils, who were favorites against their rivals at home, were blown out after Williamson was forced to leave the game. The game was heavily televised, attended by celebrities and former President Barack Obama, and fetched ticket prices upwards of $10,000. Williamson is likely the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft this year. The company called the event an “isolated occurrence.” Shares of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN) popped to an 11-year high thanks to a strong earnings report and forward guidance on Wednesday. The fitness and navigation device manufacturer reported that smartwatch sales are “on fire” from outdoor enthusiasts. The firm’s outdoor segment experienced a 25% jump in revenue for the quarter, while the firm hiked its 2019 revenue outlook and topped analysts’ expectations. The news helped boost shares of Fossil (NASDAQ: FOSL) and Fitbit (NYSE: FIT). Shares of Navient Corp. (NASDAQ: NAVI) slid 4.2% after hedge fund Canyon Capital withdrew its bid from earlier this week to buy the student loan servicing giant for $12.50 per share. The hedge fund announced it will now launch a proxy fight to replace many of the company’s board of directors. While this might be bad news for NAVI in the short term, there are still 1.5 trillion reasons to own this stock.

    Our next company, Digital Realty Trust(NYSE:DLR), ticker symbol DLR. This is really a play on data.

    Frankel:In articles, I refer to Digital Realty as the tech stock that no one thinks of as a tech stock. It’s a REIT. They own data centers, which,if you’re not familiar, these are big buildings that house servers and othernetworking equipment. Theidea is thathigh-tech companies — think IBM, Facebook,things like that — need secure and reliable placesto store all the data that’s flowing through them. That’s where Digital Realtyand the whole concept of data centers come in.

    This has created some pretty compelling bargains in the real-estate sector.
