The cost map to your 401(k) plan

The cost map to your 401(k) plan | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it
Why the focus on small 401(k) plans? Because costs are less of an issue with large plans. At the far extreme of low cost, the government's Thrift Savings Plan has annual costs, all in, of 3 basis points. [...] when it comes to small plans, the cost can be determined as much by whom the boss plays golf with as by the seeking of the best return on the employee benefit buck. In a recent telephone interview, Joseph Valletta, co-publisher of the book, said "employers usually have the highest balances in the plans, so they have a vested interest in keeping plan costs low." Of that amount, 1.38 percent goes to investment expenses (the expenses of the underlying mutual funds), 0.13 percent for record-keeping administration and 0.02 percent for trustee fees. [...] a map is available - "The 401(k) Averages Book." [...] the problem of high expenses diminishes as plans grow larger.

The Motley Fool: Building a moat for your castle

The Motley Fool: Building a moat for your castle | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it
In business jargon, an economic moat refers to sustainable competitive advantages that a company may have that protect its market position and defend against competitors or would-be competitors. Examples include brand power, switching costs, patents, economies of scale and barriers to entry. Trading was halted for General Motors because there was "news pending" - the company announced a big new round of recalls (7.6 million vehicles) and a big increase in the cost it expects to incur repairing the recalled vehicles. Trading was halted in GM's stock so that no one would be buying or selling shares without the benefit of the new information. (I even own and run some Japanese resorts.) In addition, I encompass the separately managed vehicle company that is now the world's second-largest motorcycle maker and also makes golf carts, outboard engines, snowmobiles, water vehicles and more. COF, the successful consumer and commercial banking franchise with a strong market position in credit cards, auto loans and home loans. Capital One has a convincing track record in growing its core business segments and has become the 13th-largest domestic bank in terms of total assets. Thanks to cyclical tailwinds generated by higher consumer spending, Capital One's business segments should experience significantly higher demand, which should translate into higher share prices. Thanks to its strong balance sheet, the bank plans to funnel back substantial amounts of cash to shareholders in the form of dividends and share buybacks.
