    [$$] Want a Better Credit Score? Your Cellphone Could Help

    Consumers’ cellphone and utility payments will soon be added to one of their major credit reports, a move that will likely boost the credit scores of millions of people and increase loan approvals. PLC, one of the largest credit-reporting firms in the U.S., will start factoring in this payments information for some consumers early next year. The data will be added to Experian credit reports and the credit scores that lenders often check when deciding whether to approve applicants for loans.

    [$$] New on Parents' To-Do List: Checking Kids' Credit History

    WASHINGTON—Parents have a new item to add to their financial to-do list: check their child’s credit history. A new federal law going into effect in September will make it easier for families to combat the growing problem of identity fraud of minors, allowing them to make inquiries about credit files in their child’s name and freeze a file at no cost. Data-security experts say children are increasingly targeted by thieves who steal their Social Security numbers to create fake or “synthetic” identities, then open credit cards, take out loans or apply for public assistance.

    The 25 Best S&P 500 Stocks of the Past 50 Years

    John D. Rockefeller is reputed to have said, "The only thing that gives me pleasure is to see my dividends coming in." Income investors hopefully lead fuller emotional lives than the richest American who ever lived, but they, like Rockefeller, should understand the long-term power of dividends. Just have a look at the best stocks of the past half-century. In every case but one - which is a very special case, indeed - dividend income was critical to generating superior returns over the long haul. S&P; Dow Jones Indices recently published a list of the 25 stocks in Standard & Poor's 500-stock index that generated the best returns over the past 50 years. By price appreciation alone, many of these stocks delivered underwhelming annualized returns. On a total-return basis (price appreciation plus dividends), however, these stocks blew away the broader market. Over the last 50 years, the S&P; 500 generated an annualized return including dividends of 9.5%. That's peanuts compared to the returns generated by the best stocks of the past half-century. Have a look at the best stocks of the past 50 years and you'll see that unless they're Warren Buffett (hint, hint), long-term investors should probably covet dividends like a Rockefeller. ### SEE ALSO: 101 Best Dividend Stocks to Buy for 2019 and Beyond

    Warren’s critiques of Wall Street’s political influence struck a chord with many of the Iowans who came to see her, 13 months ahead of the Iowa caucuses that formally kick off the nomination race. “Trump says Make America Great Again, but he’s making corporations great -- he doesn’t give a sh_t about us, and his flunkies don’t care either,” said Dana Evans, 69, of Aurelia, Iowa, president of Vietnam Veterans of Northwest Iowa. More than two dozen Democrats are believed to be seriously contemplating bids for the party’s 2020 nomination, although none -- with the possible exception of former Vice President Joe Biden -- are obvious front-runners.

    The credit-reporting industry has largely escaped new oversight from Washington following the 2017 hack of Equifax Inc. that exposed the personal information of millions of Americans. House Democrats have put legislation responding to the Equifax hack at the top of their agenda for this year. A handful of existing proposals, some bipartisan, offer a road map for possible changes to how the industry handles consumer information, including subjecting credit-reporting companies to tougher cybersecurity standards and making it easier for consumers to fix errors on their credit reports.

Experian Finance plc is the financing vehicle of Experian plc (Experian or the company). "The rating action reflects (1) Experian's leading position in the consumer credit reporting market in particular in the US, Brazil, and the UK where the company benefits from high barriers to entry, (2) the resilience of the business supported by the counter-cyclical nature of some of its activities, (3) the good growth prospects over the medium-term driven by the strong momentum of the B2B offering while Consumer Services should return to growth in the UK as the company continues to reposition that business having already returned to growth in the US, and (4) Experian's clear financial policy with management committed to maintain net leverage (as reported by the company) within a range of 2.0x to 2.5x", says Sebastien Cieniewski, Moody's lead analyst for Experian.
