Why TransUnion, Teck Resources, and Star Bulk Carriers Group Slumped Today

The stock market didn't make any major moves on Wednesday, responding to a lack of noteworthy news after an eventful couple of weeks. Major benchmarks were little changed, with most indexes seeing minimal gains from Tuesday's closing levels.

3 Growth Stocks With Virtual Monopolies

One of the bedrocks of capitalism is that competition breeds better and better results for consumers. That's why we have antitrust laws in place to stop any one entity from gaining a monopoly over its industry.But that doesn't mean such situations don't exist in the real world. Sometimes government agencies are slow to act, at others the niche being dominated is too small to garner much attention, and every once in a while, the "monopolizer" is simply offering a better product than the competiti...

Now Here's a Twist: Equifax Gets Downgraded

Do you know what's on your credit report? If you have a bad credit score -- whether you know it or not -- that can be enough to deny you a home mortgage, a loan to buy your new car, or even raise the insurance rate you pay on your old car.Given the power they hold over our finances, Americans can be forgiven for thinking we live under a tyranny of credit agencies. So it's with a bit of schadenfreude that we note today how one credit agency is getting its comeuppance: Goldman Sachs just downgrade...

Doing This With Your Credit Cards Could Keep You from Getting a Mortgage

Mortgage companies are happy to loan you money -- as long as they believe you will pay them back. The challenge for lenders has always been to use the tools available to them to make the best decisions about which borrowers are the safest risks. To do that, they evaluate loan applicants based on income, debt, credit score, bank accounts, and any other data they can legally ask for.It's an inexact science, which means limitations in the process sometimes cause borrowers who would probably pay a l...
