Russell 2000 hits intraday record as sector most likely to benefit from Trump’s tax plan climbs




BUZ INVESTORS  Russell 2000 hits intraday record The Russell 2000 hit a record in intraday trade on Wednesday as the market eagerly awaited a plan to overhaul corporate taxes set to be revealed by officials of President Donald Trump at 1:30 p.m. Eastern. The Russell 2000 , which tracks small-capitalization stocks, hit a high in intraday trade of 1,424.06, above its closing record of 1,413.64 set March 1, according to FactSet data. Another popular way to invest in the smallest companies in the S&P 500, the S&P Small Cap 600 touched a record of its own,

as did the iShares Russell 2000 ETF , which tracks the Russell 2000 closely. The small-cap sector has enjoyed a healthy run ahead of Trump’s tax announcement, largely because the president’s proposal calls for cutting the tax rate on owner-operated businesses to 15%. However, there are expected to be challenges to the administration’s new tax plan because it is likely to add to the U.S. deficit. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is gaining 0.3% at 21,056, the S&P 500 index has gained 0.3% at 2,396–a few points from an intraday record–and the Nasdaq Composite Index was trading above Tuesday’s closing record, after it finished above 6,000 for the first time ever.

BUZ INVESTORS Lethbridge students to benefit  Education Minister David Eggen and Environment Minister Shannon Phillips joined staff and students of Wilson Middle School to celebrate the future school, one of more than two dozen school projects announced on March 21 by the province.

The new school is required because of increasing enrolment in three existing south Lethbridge public schools. It will help address enrolment pressures by creating 600 additional spaces for Kindergarten to Grade 5 students.

Lethbridge students to benefit

“Our government is committed to protecting and improving education for Alberta students and communities. With our recent announcement of 26 new school projects – including an essential K-5 for south Lethbridge – our commitment to Alberta families is clear. I’m proud to say that when the elementary is built, children in growing southern Lethbridge neighbourhoods won’t need to travel long distances to schools outside of their communities. We’re working to make life better for Alberta families.”

David Eggen, Minister of Education

Lethbridge School District is planning sustainable elements for the facility, including solar panels and, potentially, wind energy. School construction will begin once the design work is complete, the site is ready and full funding is in place.

“The southeast area of the city has been growing significantly and has been putting a lot of enrolment pressure on the schools in that area. This new elementary school will do a lot to alleviate these pressures and the District thanks the Alberta government for providing the funding to get this project off the ground.”

Mich Forster, board chair, Lethbridge School District

Buz Traders Alberta families to benefit If passed, Bill 1, An Act to Reduce School Fees, would eliminate specific school charges. The bill would eliminate school boards’ ability to levy fees for instructional materials or supplies, or transportation fees for eligible students.

The parents of nearly 600,000 students would benefit from an instructional fee removal. The families of an additional 140,000 students would have more money in their pockets with a transportation fee reduction.

“Through the funding that Budget 2017 provides, our government plans to reduce school fees to make life better and more affordable for Alberta families. They can use these hard-earned savings on other important things, such as paying for groceries, their mortgages or for special activities for their children.”

Rachel Notley, Premier

“Through Budget 2017, school boards would receive funding to offset the loss of fee revenues as a result of Bill 1. This would help ensure that boards would be able to maintain—or increase—the education programming they provide to students.”

David Eggen, Minister of Education

If passed, the budget would also increase overall funding for education by $213 million in 2017/18 over the 2016/17 forecast, providing school boards with dollars for every new student and protecting grants for First Nations students, English Language Learners and others with diverse learning needs.

Premier Notley and Minister Eggen spent the morning at Monsignor Fee Otterson school, in Edmonton, meeting with parents, students and school trustees to discuss how they would benefit from Budget 2017 and Bill 1.

“The elimination of transportation costs for students living 2.4 km from their designated school is a positive first step. Supporting parents with these costs will reduce the financial pressure families face every day.”

Still, GOOG stock has been hit by the earnings miss.

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is a good example of what Apple Inc needs to do. MSFT was dead money for over a decade, as the former Wall Street technology darling struggled to excite investors with anything disruptive. Selling Windows and productivity software wasn’t enough, so Microsoft changed its strategy and moved into high-growth areas such as gaming, cloud computing, and really good tablets.

Now things could change for AAPL stock, since the company does have over $100.0 billion in cash, which could be used to buy many disruptive technologies rather than buy back Apple stock and paying dividends.

Killing TPP will benefit China, won’t solve US jobs worries, US Trade Rep. Froman says


Killing TPP will benefit China Failure to ratify the U.S.-led sweeping trade pact TPP would hand China “the keys to the castle” on globalization and do nothing to solve the real problems underlying American anxiety over jobs, the top U.S. trade official said Thursday.

The tariff-slashing Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) has turned into a hot-button topic in the run-up to theNov. 8 U.S. election, threatening to dampen support from lawmakers needed to pass a deal critics condemn as a job-killer.

U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman said he was still optimistic Congress would pass the 12-member TPP, in part because China has been moving ahead with a trade deal of its own, the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), that would boost its exports and let it set labor and environmental standards in the fast-growing Asia Pacific region.

Killing TPP will benefit China
Froman’s defense of the TPP follows weeks of heated attacks on the deal as anti-TPP chants and signs have peppered the Republican and Democratic conventions.

Republican nominee Donald Trump has called the TPP a “death blow” for manufacturing jobs and his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton has firmed up her opposition to it in recent days.

Froman declined to comment on the candidates but said the TPP had become a “scapegoat” for legitimate concerns over income inequality, stagnant wages and jobs lost to automation. “You don’t get to vote on the next generation of robots,” he said, “you get to vote on trade agreements”.
