Etf Preview: Etfs, Futures Higher As Jobless Claims Fall To Lowest Level In Seven Weeks – Nasdaq.com

Experts did away with the recent notion that ETFs are a better investment than betting on individual stocks on Wednesday. David Nelson, chief strategist of Belpointe Asset Management, a Greenwich-based wealth management firm, said investors should shift attention back to individual stocks from overall indexes. “We’re past the time of index investing,” he said in an interview on CNBC’s “Closing Bell.” “All the liquidity (the Fed) pumped in brought up the bad with the good, and we’re seeing less of that.” Read More 10 rookie ETFs that raked in the 2014 cash Peter Costa, president of Empire Executions, a New York City-based trading firm, said in the same interview he agreed with Nelson’s analysis. “In a growing market, everyone’s a genius,” he said. “When the market starts selling off, that’s when bottom-down research becomes very important.” Read More Are these ETFs cutting-edge or just plain crazy?

The New Year will offer up several interesting new trends that ETF investors should take note of and ultimately may consider for inclusion in their portfolios.

Currently most active ETFs have expense ratios ranging between 0.50%-1.00%.

Obama Policy Critic Weighs States’ Immigration Order Challenge – Bloomberg

A private citizen would, and should, be prosecuted for this conduct. The Obama administration urged Hanen today to deny the states attempt to prevent the new immigration policy from taking effect, arguing that the federal government has broad discretionary authority under the U.S. Constitution to prioritize enforcement resources however the president sees fit. At its core, plaintiffs suit is a generalized disagreement about the scope of the prosecutorial discretion of the executive branch of the federal government, in the exercise of exclusive federal authority over immigration, government lawyers said in a filing today in the Brownsville court. Supreme Court That authority, under prior rulings of the Supreme Court , includes the right to decide whether it makes sense to pursue removal at all, including because of immediate human concerns, White Houe lawyers said. Immigration officials must focus their limited resources on deporting criminals and recent border-crossers, because Congress singled these groups out for priority handling without providing sufficient funding to accomplish the job, the White House said in the filing. By shifting away from low-priority aliens, DHS can spend more on rounding up dangerous immigrants and those without family ties to the U.S., they said.

Obama: Some Of Cia’s Harsh Methods Were ‘brutal’ – Abc News

“Mexico is our friend and our neighbor. We want them to thrive.” Obama said the crime against the missing students has “no place in civilized society.” The case has ignited indignation across Mexico and around the world over the fact that the students disappeared at the hands of a corrupt local government and that federal authorities took 10 days to intervene. Some have called for President Enrique Pena Nieto to resign. Obama said he spoke with Pena Nieto last month when both leaders attended an international economic summit in Australia and that the Mexican president “recognizes the outrageous tragedy this represents.” Mexico’s attorney general said 80 people have been arrested so far in the case, including 44 police officers from the cities of Iguala and Cocula and former Iguala Mayor Jose Luis Abarca, who is under investigation for ordering the Sept. 26 attacks.

Obama banned use of the tactics shortly after taking office nearly six years ago. The report concludes that the CIA deceived government officials and the public with its steadfast insistence that the tactics, employed during the period that followed the deadly 9/11 terrorist attack on the U.S., had saved lives. The report says the CIA’s own records fail to back up the agency’s claims. Obama said the report makes clear that the interrogation program was created too hastily and without enough thought about potential consequences. “The CIA set up something very fast without a lot of forethought to what the ramifications might be,” he said.

Obama reassures Latinos on immigration action – CNN.com

In back-to-back interviews Tuesday with networks that reach Spanish-speaking audiences, the President assured viewers that there is enough public support for his policies to carry over into a new administration, making it unlikely that they will be deported. “The American people believe that if you’ve done things the right way, then you shouldn’t be punished for it,” Obama said in an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart. “You’re not gonna see Democrats or Republicans who suggest that we’re gonna treat worse the people who did the right thing compared to those folks who don’t register, don’t go through a criminal background check and haven’t been paying their taxes,” he said. POTUS stays on the immigration offensive Speaking to viewers who qualify for a path to citizenship under his executive action, the President vowed, “You can register, and you can be assured you won’t be deported.” “We are going to make sure that families — people who are working and responsible in their communities — are not prioritized for deportation,” Obama said. “So the likelihood of their deportations are going to be much lower.” A former constitutional law professor, the President detailed what gave him the legal authority to act on immigration now without Congress’ approval — a move he once said he didn’t have the authority to do.
