The Markets

(Michael Schwartz) - The stock market seems to be climbing the proverbial "wall of worry." Despite potential road hazards such as sovereign debt issues, rising interest rates, a weak job market, and a stalled housing recovery, investors bid up stock prices last week to an 18-month high, according to MarketWatch. Of course, these things could eventually affect stock prices, but, for now, stocks are riding the momentum of improving earnings and some underlying stability in the economy.

Lowes Sees Improvement

(Lee Siler) - Stocks look to build on last week's gains, as this week will be packed with economic data. This morning, retail sales came in a little better than expected. The Commerce Department reported that retail sales increased by 1.4% during the month of October. However, if you strip auto and auto parts sales, the number came in less than expected. Ex-auto's, economists had been expecting a jump by 0.4%, but actually came in about half of that number at 0.2%.

Goldman Makes Wrong Call

(Lee Siler) - Stocks continued to trade lower on economic growth concerns and the stronger dollar. Obviously, the weaker dollar has benefited the large cap multinational companies with regards to earnings for this past quarter. When the dollar is weak, like it has been for quite some time now, companies that depend on exports for a large part of their business have a huge advantage. And we've seen it in this quarter's earnings reports. A large majority of the S&P 500, which are the 500 largest companies, have beat analysts' expectations. Keep in mind earnings are still down from a year ago, but that was expected.

B of A Raises Capital Sells Shares

(Lee Siler) - Stocks are pointing to a higher opening, as investors are in relief that Bank of America was able to raise some capital with relative ease. Even though B of A is selling 1.25 billion shares to the market, diluting the stock by about 19%, the stock is trading higher in the pre-market. I believe this enthusiasm will wane as investors realize that these financial institutions are flooding the market with shares of their stock. It's your basic law of supply and demand. But, for now the market is looking past that. However, eventually you always have to pay the piper.

Preparing A Savings Plan

(Money Manager) - Preparing a savings plan is much like planning a trip. You are at point “A” and you want to get to point “B”. Maybe you'll wish to visit points “C” and “D” also. Before you set out, you select a route or routes that will get you there either most quickly, usually sacrificing comfort for speed, or the best way for your style of travel. A savings plan is very similar. You can devise a plan that will get you there the most quickly and usually with the greatest sacrifice, or you can prepare a savings plan that will eventually get to the same point but allow you to give up less.
