The Most Pressing Reason Yet You Want to Avoid Investing in Retail Stocks / Companies / Retail Sector
Keith Fitz-Gerald writes:President Obama announced last week that he’s directing the Department of Labor to mandate higher overtime pay for anybody making $50,400 or less per year. Coupled with rising minimum wage standards, that’s given many people reason to cheer.

Simply put time is running out for the bulls, the failure to move back above 130 is a problem, it supports an earlier idea I was working and that a peak could well be in place for AAPL at 134.55.

Wednesday, June 24, 2015As stated previously, asset monetization by small E&P operators will start in earnest in the second half of this year out of cash flow necessity. Most, if not all, smaller market capitalization companies, public or private, are still free cash flow negative (operating cash flow less capital expenditure) and only a few of the larger ones are now, or will be, based on guidance.
