Social influencer Dan Lok argues in the age of the internet there are alternatives to a college degree in order to make a living. Baristas can now become blockchain experts. Veterans can become software developers. This is the shift to America’s “new collar” jobs – careers in fast-growing fields like software engineering, data analytics and cybersecurity that are in high demand, but remain largely unfilled due to a lack of skilled workers.

Rebecca Ungarino, provided by Published 1:53 pm CDT, Tuesday, March 26, 2019 Joshua Roberts/Reuters Both Democrats and Republicans have blasted corporate buybacks. But political pressure hasn't deterred America's publicly traded companies, mostly in the tech sector, from buying back their own stock. S&P 500 companies bought back a record $223 billion of stock in the fourth-quarter, according to a new S&P Dow Jones Indices report, bringing last year's total to an all-time high of $806.4 billion. The end-of-year buying marked the fourth consecutive quarterly record for buybacks, the longest such streak since S&P Dow Jones Indices began tracking the activity. If Sens.

By Michael Rapoport WSJ Fri., Jan. 25, 2019 The stock-market tumble late last year could punish earnings at companies such as Verizon Communications Inc. and AT&T Inc. because of how they account for fluctuations in their pension plans. These companies and others count gains and losses in their pensions and retiree-benefit plans in the same year that they occur, as opposed to spreading them out over a number of years. They were on track for much of 2018 to get an earnings boost until markets swooned in the fourth quarter. Now, they may report pension losses that will weigh on their bottom lines, or pension gains will be far lower than would have been expected earlier in the year. In fact, many other companies with defined-benefit plans could see their earnings in 2019 and beyond hit by the markets’ stumbles, pension analysts say, though the effect will be more gradual and harder to notice. “For many, it could serve as a bit of an … [Read more...] about Pension Losses Could Hit Companies Like AT&T and Verizon Hard
