Stocks Likely To Come Under Pressure In Early Trading – U.S. Commentary – NASDAQ.com

The threat of seizures forced Fernandez to stop using her presidential plane and instead fly on private jets. Restoring Argentina’s sense of pride and sovereignty after the 2001-2002 economic collapse has been a central goal of Fernandez and her predecessor and late husband, Nestor Kirchner. Argentina has made efforts to return to global credit markets that have shunned it since the 2001 default. The government paid its debt to the International Monetary Fund and agreed in May with the Paris Club of creditor nations on a plan to begin repaying $9.7 billion in debts unpaid since 2001.

Economists expect the Chicago business barometer to inch up to 63.0 in July from 62.6 in June, with a reading above 50 indicating growth. The downward momentum for the markets also reflects lingering concerns about developments overseas, as news that Argentina missed a debt payment has generated some negative sentiment. Traders are also digesting the latest batch of earnings news, including disappointing results from companies such as Kraft Foods ( KRFT ) and Time Warner Cable ( TWC ). Oil giant Exxon Mobil ( XOM ) also released its second quarter results before the start of trading, reporting earnings and revenues that exceeded analyst estimates.

New Dividend ETFs Offers Core Growth – Yahoo Finance

A closed-end fund is a publicly traded investment company that raised a certain amount of capital once through an initial public offering. The price of the CEF can fluctuate like any other stock listed on an exchange. However, unlike ETFs, a CEF issues sites a set number of shares, so the CEF can trade at a high premium or discount to its underlying net asset value. The Market Vectors offering includes municipal bond CEFs that employ leveraged, unleveraged, high yield and high-yield leveraged municipal bond strategies, writes Reuben Sushman for Seeking Alpha . Since XMPT is a type of fund-of-funds, the ETF has acquired fund fees and expenses. Its net expense ratio is 1.65%, significantly higher than the average ETF offering.

A High-Yield, CEF Municipal Bond ETF – Yahoo Finance

How that dividend growth is achieved varies from ETF to ETF, but a new entrant to the field could merit attention from income investors. The two ETFs are noticeably different, implying dividend investors can use the funds in unison rather than exclusive of one another. Unlike HDV, which focuses on the yield of potential candidates, as its name suggests, DGRO constituents are screened based on recent dividend growth and sustainability of such growth. In light of this, relative to HDV, DGRO offers higher exposure to industrials (18.8% of assets), information technology (11.8%) and consumer discretionary (14.3%) and lower exposure to defensive health care (7.2%) and utilities (5.4%), said S&P Capital IQ in a new research note. DGROs combined 26% weight to consumer discretionary and technology names is something of a hallmark among the new genre of dividend growth ETFs because those sectors have been two of the largest contributors to S&P 500 dividend growth over the past several years.

Many are fleeing extreme poverty, gangs and drug violence, as well as responding to rumors spread by smugglers that children who reach the U.S. border will be allowed to stay. On Sunday the governor sharply criticized the Obama administration for not moving more quickly to address the problem. “They either are inept or don’t care,” he told ABC News. Perry has called for National Guard troops to be sent to the border to help stem a surge of Central American nationals entering the United States illegally.

“The speaker still supports deploying the National Guard to provide humanitarian support in the http://www.obamastudentloanforgiveness.net/ affected areas which this proposal does not address,” Steel added. The $3.7 billion in emergency funding is well above the $2 billion that previous reports indicated the president would request. Last Monday, Obama pledged to take executive action to help fix the broken immigration system amid signs that the Republican-controlled House does not plan to vote on an immigration bill this year. Obama said the first step he will take is to direct Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Attorney General Eric Holder to move available and appropriate resources from the nation’s interior to the border. The president said he’s also asked Johnson and Holder to identify additional actions the administration can take within existing legal authorities to fix as much of the immigration system as possible.

Obama Requests $3.7 Billion In Emergency Funds To Address Border Crisis

The administration says 52,000 unaccompanied children have flooded across the border since October. The administration wants to spend $39 million for more drone surveillance at the border. It wants to create 16 new drone crews and support 17,000 extra flight hours, according to a fact sheet on the spending request the White House releasedTuesday. A brigade of lawyers budgeted at $15 million would go to the border to provide representation for immigrant kids as they make their way through the judicial process. But the spending request didnt include proposals that would allow President Obama to speed deportations. The administration took flak from immigrant rights groups after saying it would spell out requests to give the Homeland Security secretary more discretion to send people back quickly.

Mrs. Clinton was the industrys home state senator, and the financial sector was the second-largest giver to her presidential campaign in 2008. In her post-State Department life, she has been showered with lucrative speaking fees from Goldman Sachs, J. P. Morgan and other financial firms. In her talks, she says it is unproductive to vilify the industry, and she avoids the kind of language that puts off financial executives, as when President Obama referred to fat cat bankers in 2009.
