4 Merrill Lynch Top Idea Energy Stocks to Buy for 2018

2017-11-20 247wallst
Despite a huge rally off the summer lows, sentiment for the energy sector still remains very weak, and oil prices have been in one of the most volatile periods in the last ten years. While all of that seems counter intuitive given the price increase, most of the top portfolio managers have been underweight energy until just recently. Toss in the current backwardation, which is a state when spot prices are higher than prices for futures contracts, creating a downward-sloping curve for futures prices, and the picture remains cloudy.

Weekend Reading for Financial Planners (November 18-19) 2017

2017-11-17 kitces
Enjoy the current installment of “weekend reading for financial planners” – this week’s edition kicks off with the news that the CFP Board has decided to issue a second draft of its proposed changes to the CFP Standards of Conduct, which is expected to be released in mid-December with a comment period running in January of 2018. Also in the news this week was a new report from PIABA that points out 5 out of the 13 “public” members of FINRA’s Board of Governors (who are supposed to represent consumers and have no ties to the industry) actually do have substantive ties to the financial services industry, which raises the significant conflict-of-interest concern that the majority of FINRA’s Board is actually comprised of industry representatives (whereas it is supposed to maintain 13-out-of-24 board seats with non-industry public governors).
