Who could benefit when biggest utility falls apart?

If there’s one classic line in the controversial movie “Vice,” it probably comes early in the film, when then-Vice President Richard Cheney is portrayed thinking about the World Trade Center attacks of 9-11 as “an opportunity,” rather than a tragedy. So it might be today in California, where tragedies partly of its own making afflict the state’s largest utility, whose chief executive has left the firm just when it says it will declare bankruptcy. Pacific Gas & Electric Co. faces as much as $29 b...

MacKenzie Bezos deserves half of Jeff Bezos' fortune because there would be no Amazon without her (AMZN)

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos created the world's most valuable company during the 25 years he was married to MacKenzie Bezos. The couple, who announced plans for divorce on Wednesday, apparently have no prenuptial agreement and live in a state where assets are split 50-50. MacKenzie was part of Amazon's early team, helping to come up with the name and serving as its first accountant. But there's another reason she deserves half of the $137 billion Amazon fortune. Jeff Bezos, the world's wealthiest p...

Buffett's Apple Losses Make His Track Record in Tech Even Worse

It’s only getting worse with Apple Inc., which had already lost more than $350 billion in market value since October, diving Wednesday.

6 Personal Finance Books to Give for the Holidays (or Read Yourself)

It feels good to give, doesn’t it? But most of the things we tend to give to family and friends have a short-term effect.  They get a gift, consume it, and then it’s on to the next thing. That’s cool and all but would it be great to give a gift that could really impact a person’s life?   When I started getting my head straight about my personal finances books were the place to go.  The internet didn’t have as many useful sites about the subject. But you know what?  Even with all of the informati...

Apple's world-beating financial engineering is teaching the corporate world how to exploit Trump's tax cuts

After Trump's tax-cuts and forgiveness program, Apple repatriated $260 billion it had stashed in offshore tax havens (or, more truthfully, had funneled through offshore tax-havens to buy onshore financial products that were notionally held offshore); this made Apple the leading beneficiary of the Trump tax forgiveness program. Apple used that money to continue its streak of record-setting stock buybacks, which which the company gooses its share price and allows investors to cash out, divert...

Weekend reading: It’s not perfect, but historical data is the best we have to go on when investing

What caught my eye this week. W riting a regular personal finance and investing blog isn’t all glamour, acclaim, and partying with insouciant French models, you know. Sometimes it can even be a tad dispiriting. You, dear reader, can come across a comment like… “I don’t see the point in bonds – I decided not to buy any when I started investing 18 months ago and I haven’t looked back!” or… “Stop trying to pump up FED-inflated shares even higher I bought shares in 1999 and they crashed in 2000...
