The retail brokerage industry is under purview of regulators, including the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), for better transparency.
Mom-and-pop investors who think their brokers are prioritizing high-frequency traders over them may soon have a chance to try to prove their case in court. A federal judge in Nebraska this month ruled a class-action lawsuit could proceed against TD Ameritrade Holding Corp., one of the nation’s largest discount brokerages. The TD Ameritrade customers who brought the suit alleged the company, which provides investing and trading services for 11 million client accounts, prioritized its profits over their best interests.
The last change in the short interest score occurred more than 1 month ago and implies that there has been little change in sentiment among investors who seek to profit from falling equity prices. Index (PMI) data, output in the Financials sector is rising.

BARRONS NEXT HOT STOCKS Come on, somebody: Buy (ETFC) (ETFC)!

TD Ameritrade (NASDAQ:AMTD), E*Trade Financial (NASDAQ:ETFC) and Charles Schwab (NYSE:SCHW) have all moved lower over the past few months, but I think that is providing a buying opportunity in each of these online broker stocks, as all three of these companies are strong fundamentally. TD Ameritrade has averaged earnings growth of 22% per year for the last three years. The latest quarterly results showed earnings growth of 85% and analysts expect the company’s earnings to grow by 80% for the year.

For regular Chase customers who don’t have that kind of savings, they can upgrade to the Sapphire bank account by paying a monthly fee of $25.
Watching their parents struggle financially seems to have taught millennials a couple of important money lessons.
The 2008 financial crisis and the subsequent recession had a significant impact on millennials and their money habits, even though many of today's twenty- and thirty-somethings were students when Lehman Brothers collapsed 10 years ago. A recent survey by Charles Schwab finds that 81 percent of those ages 16 to 25 watched their parents experience financial hardship following the 2008 financial crisis.
Almost exactly a decade ago, the failure of Lehman Brothers roiled global markets. The man behind the annual gathering of elites in the Swiss mountain retreat of Davos believes the financial crisis of 2008 has done little to inspire meaningful change in the banking industry.
Klaus Schwab, founder of the World Economic Forum believes the financial crisis of 2008 has done little to inspire meaningful change in the banking industry.
Well, according to statistics at the Bureau of Labor, the top areas for job growth since November 2016 are mining and logging, up 13.5%, and construction, up 6%. Manufacturing jobs have grown just 2.7% since the election — a mediocre result at best. To qualify, a company must have grown the number of employees by 10% in the U.S. over the past five years while generating at least 50% of its revenue in the U.S.
Fidelity Investments raised $1 billion in assets when it launched the mutual fund industry's first no-fee index funds last month. It is now doubling down, launching two more no-fee portfolios covering the US stock market.
When it comes to enacting changes in any of the Schwab tax-efficient portfolios, however, I'll use a much lighter hand. The equity components of the portfolios are composed of fine Schwab total market ETFs, which are the ultimate in "set it and forget it" ease.
While Schwab's mutual fund supermarket is a bit light on reasonably priced bond funds, it's a great place for equity-focused investors to build their portfolios. In addition to Schwab's fine lineup of low-cost index funds and ETFs, it also features standout actively managed offerings from many of Morningstar's favorite firms. Now that the portfolios have three years' worth of history under their belts, it's an opportune time to review their performance and take a deep dive into their holdings.
