Published May 01, 2019 Markets Motley Fool Facebook Twitter Comments Print Rite Aid (NYSE: RAD) is no longer a penny stock, but this doesn't mean that investors are finally off the road to perdition. Rite Aid completed a 1-for-20 reverse stock split last week. Swapping out every 20 shares for a single new share may be enough to artificially lift the price into exchange-listing compliance, but even speculators know that reverse splits are best avoided in the near term. Rite Aid stock has fallen nearly 15% in the past six trading days following its April 22 split. A stock tumbling after a reverse split is an easy high-percentage call.

provided by Published 9:00 am CDT, Thursday, April 4, 2019 MoneyTips You've completed your 2018 tax return, and you don't like the results. How did you end up owing so much money? There's nothing you can do about it now ... or is there? While the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) made sweeping changes to the tax laws, it didn't offer any retroactive means of affecting your taxes – but the TCJA did leave a tax adjustment method related to retirement accounts untouched. If you have an IRA, you may be able to make a contribution to that IRA and still count that contribution against your 2018 taxes. You have until the tax-filing deadline (April 15, 2019) to make any remaining contributions up to the 2018 annual limit of $5,500 ($6,500 if you are age fifty or above).

The first thing Zachary Sutterfield noticed when he awoke before daybreak in his friends’ apartment was the uncomfortable heat. Vivid colors danced outside the living room window. Orange and blue hues flickered, casting shadows inside. The 20-year-old college student sprang from the couch where he’d been sleeping.
