They explain: how hwee young/European Pressphoto Agency We lower our rating on Tiffany to Market Perform and reduce our price target to $70 (from $75), assuming a lower P/E multiple of ~18x FY16 of $3.78E.

For months, strategists warned that high valuations in the U.S. could leave stocks vulnerable to a correction. But valuations seemed to have had little hand in guiding investors during this year’s steep declines across global markets. Equity markets that were relatively more “expensive”those with higher valuationsdidn’t suffer any more than their “cheaper” counterparts from the recent turbulence, data suggest. That speaks to the host of other factors guiding January’s sharp moves, from oil to central banks. It also underscores what many market observers have known for some timevaluations are a poor predictor of short-term market moves. A comparison of one-year forward price-to-earnings ratios for major bourses in the U.S., Japan, Europe and emerging markets shows little relation between the indexes’ valuations at the start of the year and the extent of their falls.

The labor force participation rate (LFPR) among prime-age (2554 years old) people averaged 80.8 percent in 2015, down 1.8 percentage points (2.6 million people) from 2009, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. According to our calculations from the Current Population Survey (CPS), a drop in LFPR among individuals with disabilities accounts for about a fifth of that decline. Many people with disabilities are active in the labor force, working or looking for work. But the disabled LFPR has fallen a lot in recent yearsit’s down from 39.3 percent in 2009 to 34.5 percent in 2015. In other words, for some reason, more prime-age individuals with disabilities have opted out of the labor market. A rising share of the prime-age population with a disability is not the culprit. In fact, the 2015 average disability rate was 6.4 percent, the same as in 2009. It is possible that the severity … Continue reading

Shutterstock It appears that size matters, at least when millennials are selecting a bank. Young Americans (between 18 and 34) are increasingly ditching big banks and taking their business to smaller, local banks and credit unions, according to a recent banking survey from Accenture. While large national and regional banks lost 16 percent of millennial banking customers last year, community banks saw a 5 percent increase in young account holders and credit unions experienced a 3 percent bump. Most of the time, a millennial’s decision to dump a big bank comes down to money, more specifically banking fees. Larger financial institutions typically charge customers more for overdrafts, ATM withdrawals, account maintenance and other services than their smaller counterparts, who often offer free checking and no monthly fees. Millennials also noted that big banks tend to have weaker loyalty reward programs. According to the survey results, “millennials choose their banks for … Continue reading
