You bring up an interesting dilemma some retirement savers may not think of, which is having your retirement assets locked away in investment portfolios intended to be used at an older age. Employer-sponsored retirement accounts, such as 401(k) plans, are a great tool for investing for retirement because they are tax-deferred, which means more money is growing until it’s time to withdraw. The first task is to double check on your company’s policy for the age 55 rule (for readers unfamiliar with this rule, it allows people age 55 or older who were separated from their jobs — either because they were fired or voluntarily left — to tap into the 401(k) from their current employer before the required age 59 ½).
It’s a bearish start to the day for Bitcoin and the broader market. Bitcoin would need to move back through to $36,500 levels to provide support.
It may not last forever. But, the Reddit stocks phenomenon is here to stay for now. It may go against the philosophy of investing legends like Warren Buffett. But, as retail investors continue to essentially gamble on stocks, with minimal interest or concern about their underlying fundamentals, there are likely still fast profits to be made with this high-risk, but possibly high-reward “investing” strategy. Interest in continued favorites like AMC Entertainment (NYSE:AMC) may be peaking. In the

See: I’m 40, and a single, military dad of 2; I have rental income, $100K in retirement savings and expect at least $3K a month in retirement — what am I missing? If the level of expenses you provided is accurate, coupled with moderate inflation and an estimated investment growth rate of net 6% to 6.5%, your strategy should be able to hold you over until Social Security and then some, said Brian Robinson, a certified financial planner and partner at advisory firm SharpePoint. “There are enough assets with different taxable circumstances that, if allocated correctly and in the correct types of vehicles, will achieve a sustained retirement through at least age 90,” Robinson said.
Fed policymakers surprised a lot of investors on Wednesday by signaling that tapering and interest-rate hikes are finally on the way. Investors sat up and noticed because “taking away the punch bowl” has doomed many a growth cycle. The Fed policy shift confirms we are moving toward the middle of the economic cycle from the early stage where rip-roaring growth is the norm – which benefits more speculative stocks.
A near-record dollar amount of single stock equity options -totaling $818 billion - is set to expire at the close of trading on Friday afternoon, potentially driving sharp moves in some stocks throughout the day, Goldman Sachs analysts wrote. A recent surge in interest in options trading, fueled in part by droves of retail traders looking to place wagers on the swings in so-called meme stocks such as GameStop Corp and AMC Entertainment Holdings, has boosted trading in U.S. single stock options to record highs this year. Single stock open interest now stands at nearly $3 trillion in notional terms, close to the highest level since Jan. 15, according to the report, which was authored by analysts Vishal Vivek and John Marshall and published on Friday morning.

The current debate over inflation really revolves around two questions: First, is this current spate of inflation, just that, a spate—or to use Wall Street’s buzzword of the moment? And second, transitory inflation or not, what does it suggest for the economy and markets?
Sometimes, a risky stock just isn’t worth the trouble. But for this article, when I say high-risk stocks, I’m implying that these are high-reward stocks as well. There’s no point adding to your risk profile if there isn’t the possibility of realizing outsized gains. The stocks here are mostly established players that have built solid businesses in strong growth sectors. As business revives, these stocks will stand out in their sectors. Remember, smaller companies grow faster in high-growth marke
Social momentum is not a permanent driving force. It causes stocks to rise, but it can’t sustain stocks at unprecedented levels all on its own. Once hype dies, meme stocks go down. If a company caught up in this kind of trading isn’t solid on its own, its stock goes down … a lot. For sustained growth, you need companies with great fundamentals and core growth strategies.

(Bloomberg) -- U.S. bank stocks are morphing from leaders into losers amid more signs that their searing 35% rally through this year’s first five months may have outrun the fundamentals.With two weeks left in the quarter, some investors aren’t waiting around to find out.
