    A Fool-Proof Formula For Free Credit Cards

    Using a credit card gets expensive when you factor in annual fees, interest rates, and any penalties you might have to pay. Some free credit cards will even reward you with points that you can cash in for free gift cards or other rewards. When a credit card has an annual or monthly fee, you pay for those fees regardless of whether you use the card or not.

    Accused Capital One Hacker’s Volatile History Put Before Judge

    (Bloomberg) -- Federal prosecutors in Seattle have pieced together a string of disturbing social-media posts and police complaints to portray the accused Capital One Financial Corp. hacker as an unhinged danger to society who should remain locked up while awaiting trial.It’s a characterization disputed by Paige A. Thompson’s lawyers, who asked a judge on Tuesday to cancel a bail hearing set for later this week and immediately release her to a halfway house, with GPS monitoring.Thompson, 33, was arrested last month and charged with stealing personal data on more than 100 million people from Capital One. She has a long history of dangerous behavior that includes threats to kill others and to commit “suicide by cop,” prosecutors said in their request last week to keep her in jail.“In today’s America, it is easy enough to obtain firearms, and there is every reason to be concerned that Thompson, who repeatedly has threatened to kill, would obtain the means to carry out, and carry out, her threats -- particularly when confronted with the alternative of near-certain conviction and imprisonment,” the prosecutors said.The U.S. bolstered its case with a claim that Thompson broke into servers of more than 30 other companies, educational institutions and other entities, and that investigators are still sifting through “multiple terabytes” of data to see what kind of information was stolen. The government said it expects to add an additional charge as victims are identified and notified.The Capital One theft “was only one part of her criminal conduct,” the U.S. said.Thompson’s federal public defender, Mohammad Ali Hamoudi, said the government hadn’t provided any evidence that Thompson has tried to dodge police or avoid court appearances after those earlier run-ins.“Rather than establish that these incidents prove Ms. Thompson is a serious risk of flight, the government has established that she cooperates with law enforcement, does not flee, and has no means to leave the jurisdiction,“ Hamoudi said in the filing.Hamoudi argued Thompson is suffering greater harm in custody because she is transgender, and that she’d be better off in a halfway house with appropriate clinical care than confined to a jail where suicides are known to occur. He cited the recent suicide of sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein as one example.Capital One’s lawyers didn’t weigh in on the matter and its press office didn’t respond to requests for comment on Thompson’s detention.Prosecutors argued that if Thompson -- a former employee of Amazon.com Inc. -- were set free, she could sell any stolen data she may have secretly stashed away and that hasn’t been found by federal agents, including data from the other entities she allegedly hacked. They also said she has the skills to carry out other hacks.Prosecutors didn’t identify any of the other companies or entities whose servers were allegedly breached. Several companies, including UniCredit SpA and Ford Motor Co. said they were investigating whether they were involved in the breach. The prosecutors focused mostly on the many examples of Thompson’s allegedly dangerous behavior.Earlier this month, the U.S. claimed Thompson had once threatened a social media company that prosecutors didn’t identify. The U.S. said police were called to Thompson’s house in May after she contacted an acquaintance at the company. She threatened to travel to its California campus and to “shoot up” the office, prosecutors said.The U.S. said Thompson had access to an “arsenal” of firearms that authorities found in Thompson’s home that allegedly belonged to her roommate, Park Quan. The stash, much of which was seized because Quan is a convicted felon, included ammunition, explosive material, assault rifles and a sniper rifle, the U.S. said.But when police followed up to investigate the threat against the company, they concluded Thompson “had no monetary or transportation means to come to California,” Hamoudi responded.Police ReportIn March, police were called to Thompson’s house after she became violent with four housemates and threatened to use a fake gun to commit “suicide by cop,” the U.S. said. And in social-media posts in June, Thompson allegedly said she had “nothing to lose” and threatened to kill police officers, the U.S. said.That allegation was challenged by a person involved in the incident, who said the report didn’t accurately reflect what happened, and that Thompson never made serious threats about “suicide by cop,” Hamoudi wrote.“I know what Ms. Thompson will and won’t do, and she will not harm others,” Hamoudi quoted the person involved -- Diane Eakes -- as saying. “Ms. Thompson pushes people away and that is what she was trying to do.”The case is U.S. v. Thompson, 2:19-mj-00344, U.S. District Court, Western District of Washington (Seattle).(Updates with request for comment from Capital One.)To contact the reporter on this story: Erik Larson in New York at elarson4@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: David Glovin at dglovin@bloomberg.net, Joe Schneider, Peter BlumbergFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    The 10 Best Cheap Stocks to Buy Right Now

    [Editor's note: "The 10 Best Cheap Stocks to Buy Right Now" was previously published in June 2019. It has since been updated to include the most relevant information available.]For a surprising number of names, the debate about whether a stock is overbought or oversold is largely irrelevant. Some stocks are simply (still) too cheap to overlook, poised to make gains whether or not the broad market's tide helps out in the foreseeable future. For deeply undervalued equities in anything but a wildly bearish environment, the bigger risk is being on the sidelines rather than in a position. * 10 Cheap Dividend Stocks to Load Up On To that end, here's a rundown of 10 of the market's best cheap stocks to buy right now. In some cases, the per-share price is just oddly low. In other cases, prices compared to earnings are well into single-digit territories. In most cases, both qualities apply.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips CBS Corporation (CBS)CBS Corporation (NYSE:CBS) may be down of late, but I still have confidence in CBS stock anyway. The television giant has improved in a big way where it needed to the most, streaming. By 2022, it should have 25 million streaming customers in tow.It's only a sign of the current paradigm shift in how video is delivered to consumers. It's also the reason we've seen a frenzy of M&A within the film and TV arena, the most notable of which is the Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS) acquisition of Twenty-First Century Fox (NASDAQ:FOXA).CBS has also jockeyed to acquire Viacom (NASDAQ:VIAB). At this point, they're just ironing out the details and divvying up the proceeds among the executives.With CBS stock priced at only 5.4 times this year's expected earnings though, the company would also make for a dirt-cheap entry or expansion into the entertainment industry. Air Lease (AL)Source: Karen Neoh via FlickrAir Lease (NYSE:AL) relies on at least a decent economy to drive demand for passenger jets, and recently, investors have seen what they think are too many red flags.Take a closer look at all the data, though, and matters aren't as dire as they may seem. While global economic growth may be running into a near-term headwind in the wake of plenty of political drama, in the bigger picture, airlines still desperately need new aircraft to satisfy demand.In May, and for the 12 months ending then, enplanements and total miles flown once again beat forcasted levels. Boeing (NYSE:BA) believes that between now and 2037, the world's airlines will take delivery of more than 42,000 new aircraft. * 10 Stocks Under $5 to Buy for Fall Given that trend and outlook, Air Lease is undervalued at its forward P/E of just above 5.8. Micron Technology (MU)Source: Shutterstock Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU) has been a cheap stocks for awhile, but it's bumping up against being properly valued.It's not an easy idea for some investors to get behind.Micron beat the previous quarter's estimates by more than 30% and looks as if it might be coming out of the chip glut cycle better than it entered it.This is a cycle investors have seen over and over again, however, with the same end result every time. That is, producers will curtail production, abating supply and restoring pricing power.Rivals Samsung Electronics (OTCMKTS:SSNLF) and SK Hynix, in fact, have already slowed their DRAM expansion plans, and Micron had undertaken a project to cut capital expenditures by more than $1 billion this year.It could take a while for tempered production to restore DRAM prices, but trading at only 5.22 times this year's projected per-share profits, MU stock is worth the wait. It has been every time before. Citigroup (C)Source: Shutterstock Citigroup (NYSE:C), like most bank stocks, had a rough 2018, and though it has bounced this year, the 2019 rally to-date has been subpar.The stock is trading at a trailing P/E of 10, and a forward-looking earnings multiple of 8. This is cheap even by current banking stock standards, which have been abnormally low.The reason for the mismatched price and forecasted earnings is understandable enough. That is, enough investors are convinced interest rates are going to become just a little too high against a backdrop of just a little too much economic weakness. The concern is largely manifested in the flattening yield curve, which is particularly problematic for banks. * 15 Growth Stocks to Buy for the Long Haul As was the case with Air Lease though (and will be for several others below), the worry isn't fully merited. NCR Corporation (NCR)Source: Shutterstock You may know the company better as National Cash Register Corporation, even though it changed its name years ago to NCR Corporation (NYSE:NCR).The less-limiting moniker reflects the fact that point-of-sale devices are now much more than a means of completing a sale. Since then, the company has expanded into areas like ATMs, self-service kiosks and full-blown inventory management platforms.It's certainly a move in the right direction, although it's arguable that the market isn't giving the new NCR enough credit.That might have something to do with the fact that outfits like Square (NYSE:SQ) and Paypal (NASDAQ:PYPL) are encroaching in NCR's turf. It's a legitimate concern too. There's a huge subset of companies, however, that will prefer to do business with a long-established name like NCR. Timken (TKR)Source: Shutterstock Timken (NYSE:TKR) is anything but a household name. The company makes ball bearings and industrial transmissions to supply mechanical power where it's needed in a manufacturing environment.It's anything but a riveting business, but it's a business that's starting to grow in earnest again as America's industrial engine revs. After rolling over in 2015 as the nation started to fully transition to a service-oriented economy,the United States began making more goods again in 2016. It's never looked back. * 7 Safe Dividend Stocks for Investors to Buy Right Now The paradigm shift has proven to be a boon for Timken, which has grown revenue at a double-digit pace since early 2017. Better still, the new revenue trend has set the stage for earnings growth this year that translates into a projected P/E of only 8.3. General Motors (GM)Source: Shutterstock There's no denying General Motors (NYSE:GM) ran into a headwind four years ago when "peak auto" became a reality. Though a victim of its own rampant success -- subsequent comparisons have all looked lackluster -- investors tend to only care about how current results stack up against the recent past.Those investors, however, may be unfairly harsh with their treatment of GM stock and its peers.While it remains unclear when we'll see another automobile purchase growth cycle again, General Motors is still a solid cash cow, yielding 4.25% while it sports a dirt-cheap trailing P/E of 5.9. * 7 Stocks Under $7 to Invest in Now Regardless, the carmaker continues to impress regardless of the stock's valuation. Nicolas Chahine commented, "the 2018 barrage of tariff headlines made GM stock a tough trade as it fell sharply off its January 2018 highs.This year so far it has been the total opposite. GM management clearly gave Wall Street reason to rejoice and buy the stock and investors ate it up. This morning, they backed up their claim…" Lumentum Holdings (LITE)Don't worry if Lumentum Holdings (NASDAQ:LITE) is an unfamiliar name. Many investors probably haven't heard of it. The company makes communications equipment and industrial lasers and has a big presence in the fiber optic industry.There has never been a time when the world has needed such high-speed connectivity.As more and more wireless devices compete for a finite amount of radiofrequency bandwidth, middlemen are looking for easier and faster ways to offload some of that traffic to physical infrastructure. Fiber-optic lines are more than up to the task.The market doesn't seem to see it yet, pricing LITE stock at a forward P/E of 14.57 despite this year's expected revenue growth of 28% and next year's 27%. As time passes though, Lumentum's role in the future of telecom will become clearer. Terex (TEX)Source: Shutterstock Name any piece of mobile machinery, and Terex (NYSE:TEX) probably makes it. From backhoes to cherry pickers to tracked conveyors to cranes, Terex has solutions for almost any industrial application.That diversity hasn't helped revenue in a while, with the top line peaking in 2014. The stock has been hit-and-miss since then … more misses than hits.The doubters may have overshot their pessimism though, sending TEX stock to a forward-looking P/E of 6.93 after a disappointing second quarter reported in July. While sales growth is expected to slow this year, the company more often than not topped sales and earnings estimates in 2018. It may hold a few pleasant surprises in store this year after this brief stumble. Capital One (COF)Source: Shutterstock Last but not least, add credit card company Capital One (NYSE:COF) to your list of cheap stocks to consider here.Like Citigroup, Air Lease and others, investors have been fearful that a slowing economy -- maybe even a shrinking one -- could work against Capital One. In fact, rising interest rates could hit Capital One particularly hard in that situation, as its target market of risky borrowers could be the first to underpay of stop payments altogether should the global economic condition sour. * 8 Dividend Aristocrat Stocks to Buy Now No Matter What It's another case, however, where the doubters may have overshot. COF stock is now priced at only 7.5 times this year's expected profits, making it one of the cheapest stocks to own in the financial sector. The worst-case scenario is more than priced in.As of this writing, James Brumley held a long position in CBS Corporation.

    ECB Says the Next European Bank Hack Is Just a Matter of Time

    (Bloomberg) -- Want the lowdown on European markets? In your inbox before the open, every day. Sign up here.A senior official at the European Central Bank warned that banks embracing external data storage and other digital technology need to face an uncomfortable truth: there’s a good chance they’ll get hacked.“There will be accidents, especially in the cloud,” Korbinian Ibel, a director general at the ECB’s supervisory arm, said in an interview. “It’s not that clouds are more vulnerable, they’re actually often better protected than in-house systems, but they’re seen as juicy targets.”So far, Europe has been spared the kind of hack that hit Capital One Financial Corp., which said last month that data from about 100 million people in the U.S. was illegally accessed. That may change as the region’s banks face increasing pressure to reduce costs with new technology and make up for the squeeze on revenue from lower interest rates.European banks already use some services of companies like Microsoft Corp. and Amazon.com Inc. Germany’s Deutsche Bank AG eventually wants to move the majority of its applications to the cloud -- giant external data centers -- from what it has called “expensive and inflexible physical servers.” For now, European banks tend to avoid putting “highly confidential data” on public clouds, said Ibel.“We see the benefits” of cloud computing, Ibel said. “The rule is that the banker is always responsible for their data and services.”Failings can have consequences. The ECB can tell riskier lenders to hold more capital, squeezing their returns, or order potentially costly qualitative measures such as improving how users access computer systems.Banks have responded to the digital revolution by hiring tech experts, sometimes even naming them to their top management bodies. That’s good, but it doesn’t go far enough, said Ibel.“It’s not enough to have one person as the IT expert,” he said. “You need a common understanding at board level of the needs and risks of IT.”To contact the reporter on this story: Nicholas Comfort in Frankfurt at ncomfort1@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Dale Crofts at dcrofts@bloomberg.net, Christian BaumgaertelFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Capital One Accused Hacker May Have Hit 30 Other Companies

    (Bloomberg) -- The Seattle woman accused of hacking into Capital One Financial Corp.’s cloud and stealing personal information on more than 100 million Americans also broke into servers of more than 30 other companies, the U.S. said in a request to keep her locked up.Paige A. Thompson, who was arrested last month, has a long history of dangerous behavior that includes threats to kill others and to commit “suicide by cop,” prosecutors said in a filing Tuesday in Seattle. It’s the first time the U.S. has said how many other companies she may have targeted.“Thompson’s crime in this case -- major cyber intrusions that resulted in the theft of massive amounts of data from what now appears to be more than 30 victim companies -- only exacerbates the harm that Thompson has done, and the threat she would pose if released,” the U.S. said.Prosecutors didn’t identify any of the other companies whose data was allegedly breached by Thompson.“Although not all of those intrusions involved the theft of personal identifying information, it appears likely that a number of the intrusions did,” the government said. The U.S. seized “multiple terabytes” of data stolen from the companies, educational institutions and other entities, according to the filing.Earlier this month, the government claimed Thompson had once threatened to shoot up an unnamed California social media company.Thompson’s lawyer, Christopher Sanders, a federal public defender, didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.Capital One has said it’s unlikely that the stolen information was used for fraud or dispersed to other individuals.The U.S. said it doesn’t have any information to contradict Thompson’s claim that she didn’t sell the information and that she doesn’t have another copy of the data hidden away. However, if Thompson is released and she does have another copy stashed, she could “sell or disseminate it,” the government said.“Even if she does not have another copy, Thompson’s technical sophistication means that she could commit additional cyber intrusions, thereby likely causing additional hundreds of millions of dollars of damage,” the U.S. said.The U.S. also noted that Thompson’s roommate, Park Quan, was found with what federal agents described as an “arsenal of weapons, ammunition, and explosive material, largely unsecured and accessible to his housemates, including Thompson.” Quan is a convicted felon and agents seized 14 firearms, including assault rifles and a sniper rifle, according to the filing.Read More: Former AWS Worker Is Accused in Cloud Hack of Capital OneThe case is U.S. v.
