    Why Bahrain is attracting more businesses

    Banking on its strong assets of innovative human capital and an attractive regulatory environment, Bahrain has emerged as the hub for tech entrepreneurs.

Buffett has commented before that equities were his preferred asset class as the earnings yield far exceeded bond yields, private equity valuations and real estate.

    Global Equity Market At A Crossroads

    Global equity markets are testing levels potentially critical to the survival of the bull market. As this stock market correction progresses, it is natural to consider what levels may be effective in halting the decline. Today, we look at an international stock barometer with an equally as compelling level.  The MSCI EAFE Index is a broad index of developed markets outside of the U.S. It was the subject of the Chart Of The Day and headliner in this week’s #TrendlineWednesday feature on Twitter.

    Time To Pause

    The financial markets fear an overzealous Fed looking in the rearview mirror rather than the windshield. The Fed’s mission is to promote non-inflationary growth.

    Putting away money for retirement isn’t always easy. Once you figure out how much you need to save for retirement, then you need to actually save that money. Consistently putting money into savings is a difficult habit to build. There are also a number of retirement options. Maybe your employer offers a 401(k).
