Shares of a software company that bought assets of Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) toppled more than 50 percent on Monday after the company cut its revenue forecast and its chief executive resigned. U.K.-based Micro Focus International said it now expects revenue to fall anywhere between 6 and 9 percent for the twelve months ending October 31, 2018, significantly lower than the 2 to 4 percent decline it predicted in its interim January results. This was due largely to "one-off transitional effects" of the firm's $8.8 billion takeover of HPE's software assets last year, and issues associated with the implementation of a new IT system, Micro Focus said. HPE was formed in late 2015 as a result of the split of HP into two companies.

Oracle Corp. (ORCL) stock fell 0.59% to $51.95 in Monday's regular-hours trading session. With earnings on deck for Monday after the close, can the stock reverse its woes and head higher? With Oracle's 52-week highs about 3% above current levels, investors could push Oracle stock to new highs should the company report impressive numbers, TheStreet's Jim Cramer said on CNBC's "Stop Trading" segment. After the Facebook Inc. (FB) news from over the weekend -- and the stock's 7.5% decline on Monday -- stock market investors need a more positive data point to focus on, he said. Could that come from Oracle? If its results are good, perhaps it can, reasoned Cramer, who also manages the Action Alerts

It used to be conventional thinking that you retire at age 65. This is the age at which you can begin Medicare. You can also take Social Security then, although the age at which full retirement benefits begin is 66 for those born between 1943 and 1954, rising gradually to 67 for those born after 1959. And you can start receiving permanently reduced benefits at 62. There's also another age to be aware of: 70½. This age triggers the rule that you must begin to take required minimum distributions (RMDs) from both any qualified retirement plans from work [401(k)s, for example] that you own and from any traditional IRAs. (Roth IRAs do not have required minimum distributions in the account holder's

London-based banks and other financial firms won't put their Brexit moves on hold despite a transition deal between Britain and the European Union as it lacks full legal certainty, industry officials said on Monday. Banks and insurers have said they might not be able to rely on this week's political agreement as it will not be formally ratified by EU governments until October or later - too late for them to avoid making changes to their operations before Britain's departure from the EU in March 2019. Catherine McGuinness, policy chief at the City of London, home to the Square Mile financial district, said the transition deal needs to be endorsed by industry regulators so businesses are able to use it to suspend plans to move jobs and operations out of Britain.

Regulation of cryptocurrencies must be considered, Bundesbank vice president Claudia Buch told Reuters, even though she does not believe they pose a threat to financial stability. Buch said that speculation on volatile virtual tokens does not pose a systemic threat because it is not financed through credit, but she said that regulators should look at introducing rules to protect consumers, given that such speculation could prove costly for investors. The issue of how to regulate cryptocurrencies is likely to be high on the agenda at a March 19-20 meeting of Group of 20 finance leaders in Argentina.
