Debt is basically a circumstance where a person who borrows money from another person is having pending returns. There are two parties involved among which the one who lends the money is said to be the lender or the creditor and the other person who takes the money is referred as a borrower or a debtor. The amount included in the transaction is known as the debt. The two parties that are involved in the lending and borrowing of money can vary.

It could be a transaction between two individuals, it can also happen between an individual and a group of people who are somehow inter- related, it can have an involvement of a bank and an individual,, and sometimes it can be a transaction between two firms or organization. Whenever a person borrows a loan or borrows a certain amount of cash, he or she is liable to pay the cash back within a given span of time. If the person is not able to pay back the money in the given duration then the creditor might take further actions in order to somehow get his money back so that he does not have to face a loss.

Pro's Advice to 'Buy What You Know' Doesn't Always Work

Peter Lynch, vice chairman of Fidelity Management and Resear
Peter Lynch made mutual funds popular and investing cool a generation ago. From 1977 through 1990, he took the initially fledgling Fidelity Magellan mutual fund from $18 million in assets to a whopping $14 billion by the time he stepped down 13 years later. The fund came through with an average annualized return of 29.2 percent, more than doubling the market’s general return.

Lynch wasn’t shy when it came to revealing the secret to his success. In a series of books he wrote after retiring from the fund, Lynch explained that he was able to score his biggest gains by buying into consumer-facing companies that the public was favoring.

He would accompany his wife and children to the mall, often coming across his best stock ideas by buying into the stores his family flocked to and snapping up the stocks behind hot consumer trends. The “Buy what you know” mantra worked for Lynch and it resonated with individual investors who gravitated to its simplicity.

It still works and works well, but sometimes things just don’t pan out.

The Rookie Class

If Lynch were an active fund manager today, it’s easy to fathom the growth stocks that he would be warming up to. There’s Shake Shack (SHAK), the fast-growing burger chain that blazed out of the gate shortly after going public in January. Lynch would’ve seen the long lines at the chain’s flagship New York City eateries and probably would’ve liked what he saw.

He would’ve been drawn to last summer’s GoPro (GPRO) IPO. Lynch would’ve seen the way millennials and young teens are taking to the wearable cameras and the viral nature of the short action clips gaining steam online.

El Pollo Loco (LOCO) went public a few weeks after GoPro last summer and the fast-food chain specializing in citrus-marinated grilled chicken with 415 locations was another hot debutante. Lynch had a knack for spotting hot eateries, making El Pollo Loco a strong candidate for young investors trying to tap into their inner Lynch.

All of these stocks may have popped initially, but they’ve burned investors in recent months. Shake Shack has surrendered 47 percent of its value since peaking two months ago. GoPro hit its high in October and the stock is trading 44 percent lower now. El Pollo Loco has had it even worse, giving up more than half of its value since topping out a few days after going public.

Lynch Mob

This doesn’t mean that Lynch would’ve been burned by these three stocks. The models may have been initially attractive, but he also would’ve considered the lofty valuations. All three of these consumer-facing rookies rose too high, too soon.

Shake Shack turned heads because at its peak, the market was valuing each of its company-owned eateries at nearly $100 million apiece. GoPro’s earnings multiple floated into the triple digits and even now it’s going for more than 60 times trailing earnings. El Pollo Loco packed a more reasonable valuation, but it’s also growing at a slower clip than the other two names.

So, yes, “Buy what you know” is alive and well as an investing philosophy, but sometimes it’s even more important to know how much you’re paying.

Week's Winners and Losers: Netflix Soars, Barbie Snores

Mattel Inc. Products Ahead Of Earning Figures

There were plenty of winners and losers this week, with the leading premium video service proving ridiculously magnetic and a one-iconic doll continuing to fade in popularity.

Travelzoo (TZOO) — Loser

There was a time when Travelzoo’s Top 20 weekly email blasts were a viral sensation for deal seekers looking for bargains on last-minute getaways, but the online travel deals publisher has been struggling lately. The stock took a beating Thursday after posting disappointing financial results, shedding nearly a fifth of its value.

Revenue and earnings clocked in lower than during the prior year’s quarter. The number of folks who have opted in to receive Travelzoo’s deals has inched slightly higher over the past year to 24.8 million, but the fact that it’s generating a lot less revenue per member is problematic.

Netflix (NFLX) — Winner

Shares of Netflix hit yet another all-time high after the company split its shares and announced another blowout quarterly report. The leading premium video streaming service closed out the June quarter with nearly 3.3 million more streaming subscribers than it had at the end of June.

Most of Netflix’s growth is coming overseas. It tacked on 900,000 domestic streaming subscribers during the period but a hearty 2.37 million internationally. This adds up to a lot more than the 2.5 million total net streaming subscribers that Netflix was forecasting. Profit margins continue to widen domestically, and its international operations are now two years away from profitability. Wall Street liked what it saw, with at least three analysts boosting their price targets on the stock.

Adobe (ADBE) — Loser

Folks using Chrome or Firefox browsers began getting notices that Adobe’s once-iconic Flash Player was being blocked as a plug-in due to security concerns. Reports indicated that running the plug-in made users susceptible to hackers.

Flash was once the multimedia platform of choice, but it’s been starting to lose support in favor of HTML5. Obviously this isn’t a good sign for Flash, and it might also come to burn Chrome and Firefox if users tired of the pop-up warnings on every page containing Flash and chose a different browser.

Amazon.com (AMZN) — Winner

The leading online retailer hosted Amazon Prime Day on Wednesday, promising more deals than Black Friday as a way to celebrate the success of its Prime loyalty shopping offering. Initial reactions were mixed, with some customers hoping for better deals. However, at the end of the day it was a monster success.

Amazon revealed the next day that orders were 18 percent higher than November’s Black Friday holiday shopping frenzy. Customers were ordering 398 items a second, on average. Amazon shares responded, hitting another all-time high.

Barbie — Loser

Young girls are putting away their Barbie dolls. Mattel (MAT) posted another problematic quarter. Reported sales declined relative to the prior year’s period, making this the seventh quarter in a row of year-over-year drops.

The results are kinder if you adjust for the currency discrepancies given the strong dollar, but let’s talk Barbie. Worldwide gross sales of the Barbie brand posted an 11 percent year-over-year plunge for the quarter on a constant currency basis. Mattel is placing a big bet on an interactive talking Barbie that’s coming out later this year. Let’s hope it can say more than, “I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up.”

Justice Department Investigating Potential Airline Collusion

Airlines Higher Fares
The U.S. government is investigating possible collusion among major airlines to limit available seats, which keeps airfares high, according to a document obtained by The Associated Press.

The civil antitrust investigation by the Justice Department appears to focus on whether airlines illegally signaled to each other how quickly they would add new flights, routes and extra seats.

A letter received Tuesday by major U.S. carriers demands copies of all communications the airlines had with each other, Wall Street analysts and major shareholders about their plans for passenger-carrying capacity, or “the undesirability of your company or any other airline increasing capacity.”

The Justice Department asked each airline for its passenger-carrying capacity both by region, and overall, since January 2010.

‘Unlawful Coordination’

Justice Department spokeswoman Emily Pierce confirmed that the department is looking into potential “unlawful coordination” among some airlines. She declined to comment further or say which airlines are being investigated.

On a day when the overall stock market was up, stocks of the major U.S. airlines ended the day down 1 to 3 percent on news of the investigation.

American Airlines (AAL), Delta Air Lines (DAL), Southwest Airlines (LUV) and United Airlines (UAL) all said they received a letter and are complying. Several smaller carriers, including JetBlue Airways (JBLU) and Frontier Airlines, said they hadn’t been contacted by the government.

The airlines publicly discussed capacity early last month in Miami at the International Air Transport Association’s annual meeting. After hearing about that meeting, U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., requested a Justice Department investigation.

The department had tried to block the most recent merger, the 2013 joining of American Airlines and US Airways, but ultimately agreed to let it proceed after the airlines made minor concessions.

Capacity Problem?

Some Wall Street analysts argue that to remain financially strong, airlines shouldn’t expand capacity faster than the U.S. economy. And from January 2010 to January 2014, they didn’t.

In that 4-year period, capacity on domestic flights was virtually flat while the U.S. economy grew about 2.2 percent a year. From January 2014 to January 2015, however, the airlines expanded by 5.5 percent, topping the economy’s 2.4 percent growth for 2014.

Thanks to a series of mergers starting in 2008, America, Delta, Southwest and United now control more than 80 percent of the seats in the domestic travel market. They’ve eliminated unprofitable flights, filled more seats on planes and made a very public effort to slow growth to command higher airfares.

It worked. The average domestic airfare rose an inflation-adjusted 13 percent from 2009 to 2014, according to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. And that doesn’t include the billions of dollars airlines collect from new fees. During the past 12 months, the airlines took in $3.6 billion in bag fees and $3 billion in reservation-change fees.

That has led to record profits. In the past two years, U.S. airlines earned a combined $19.7 billion.

This year could bring even higher profits thanks to a massive drop in the price of jet fuel, airlines’ single highest expense. In April, U.S. airlines paid $1.94 a gallon, down 34 percent from the year before.

That worries Wall Street analysts and investors. Cheap fuel has led airlines to make money-losing decisions in the past, rapidly expanding, launching new routes and setting unrealistically low fares to lure passengers. Airlines already flying those routes would match the fare, and all carriers would lose money.

Market Jitters

Such price wars are long gone, but today’s low fuel costs along with recent comments from airline executives have given the market jitters.

Airline stocks plunged in May after the chief financial officer of Southwest said at an industry event that the carrier would increase passenger-carrying capacity by 7 to 8 percent, an increase over an earlier target.

Wolfe Research analyst Hunter Keay, who hosted that May 19 conference, told investors in a note afterward that the big airlines are unhappy to be restraining growth while low-cost airlines like Spirit (SAVE) grow much faster. He urged the major airlines to “step up” and cut routes for the good of the industry.

On June 1, Southwest CEO Gary Kelly said his airline would cap its 2015 growth at 7 percent. That sparked a rally in airline stocks, as investors were more assured that capacity growth would be limited.

Keay said Wednesday that he had not been contacted by the government and doesn’t think the airlines have been acting inappropriately.

“The analyst community is bringing up the subject. You certainly can’t fault an airline executive for responding to the question,” Keay said. “The capacity continues to grow at the airports people want to fly to and air travel remains a particular good value for the consumer, especially for the utility that it provides.”

Invest in Your Professional Development This Summer

Group of business people in office building
For many, summer means reduced work hours or a slower pace, making these months an ideal time to invest in a little self-improvement.

You may notice your employer is promoting more courses this summer. Offering professional development is one way companies are showing employees how much they care. It may also be a way to retain valuable employees.

You should take advantage of every possible opportunity, especially when it comes to increasing your skills. This is one of the best career insurance policies. When you develop skills that are harder to come by, you increase your marketability, both inside and outside your company.

With so many options and the ability to access classes on the go, what do you need to consider before signing up for training? Here are common conundrums and workarounds to help you invest in your professional development.

“But I don’t know what training to take.”

Investing your valuable time requires you to carefully evaluate the training with the biggest bang for the buck. Take into consideration whether it will interest you, if it’s in demand and how it will impact your performance.

Developing time-management skills and the ability to manage difficult conversations may seem fluffy, but these topics help prepare you for future opportunities. “Oftentimes, these skills take a backseat to skill-set development, but they’re vital to preparing employees for leadership at every level,” says Michele McMahon, senior director of learning solutions at Harvard Business Publishing.

Don’t forget the more tangible, often less interesting, technical and procedural training. Jenny Dearborn, senior vice president and chief learning officer at SAP, suggests employees look for training that will make them most effective in their roles, such as process, system or tool training.

“But I don’t have time.”

Employers and training providers are catching on to the scarcity-of-time excuse and are offering classes that are online and accessible from mobile devices, which makes anytime-anywhere training possible. McMahon adds that virtual training “allows [employees] to engage with the training on their own time, when it works best. Plus, the time commitment for virtual programs is often spread out over time, which not only gives employees more flexibility in participating, but it also helps the learning stick.”

“But training never seems to stick.”

“Learning that matters is learning that sticks,” according to McMahon, who recommends “combining learning with practice, reflection and on-the-job application to attain a deeper level of expertise.” You’ll want your manager’s support to practice your newly acquired skills. The best scenario is to consult your manager and ask for support before you sign up for the training. Discuss how the training will fit into your manager’s goals and yours. “Having a long-term personal development plan helps get the most out of the learning experiences you receive,” Dearborn says. And after you’ve attended the training, review the key takeaways, and ask your manager to help you as you practice your newly acquired skills.

One way to practice is to offer to train your team on what you learned, McMahon says. Training costs can put a strain on your employer’s budget, and a way around this is to propose delivering a class on what you learned to your team or within your organization. This may just do the trick and get your manager’s buy-in. Sharing your new knowledge helps cement the content and concepts in your head and adds a cost-effective solution to up the skills in the organization.

Another way to develop your skills is to participate in or start a center of excellence. “Some organizations create centers of excellence around key business topics and provide articles and videos for people to access to gain more knowledge,” McMahon says.

Consider yourself a lifelong learner. Dearborn recommends employees look at training differently. “Training doesn’t start and stop with a specific session or piece of material – we learn and teach every day. If you’re always looking to learn something, then you stand a better chance of retaining the content you’re learning in a course for the long-term.”

“But my employer doesn’t offer training.”

Not all employers offer to pay for employee training. Never fear – you can still get the training you want. McMahon and Dearborn recommend MOOCs. “Massive open online courses, or MOOCs, are an affordable training option,” Dearborn says. “These tend to be relatively inexpensive, high-quality training courses on in-demand topics, which can help individuals learn new skills that prepare them to take on new roles.”

An alternative to training is to participate in a mentoring relationship, either company-sponsored or one you initiate yourself. Select someone who you respect and who possesses the skills you want to support and grow.

“But I don’t need training” – said no one, ever.

Don’t wait for a crisis or when you find your skills are out of date to think about training. Carve out time beginning this summer, and enroll in training that will amp up your skills and career potential.

Trade Deficit Narrows as Services Exports Hit Record High

Trade Gap

The U.S. trade deficit narrowed in April on a drop in imports, which surged in March following the end of a West Coast ports labor dispute, while companies picked up their hiring in May after a pullback the previous month.

The data supported the notion the U.S. economy has recovered somewhat from a first-quarter contraction and bolstered expectations the Federal Reserve may consider raising interest rates later this year.

Economists cautioned that a second-quarter economic rebound remains modest due to a strong dollar, a recent rise in oil costs and sluggish demand abroad.

“The takeaway for now is that the massive drag from trade activity is beginning to unwind, though this sector is likely to remain a modest drag on activity this quarter on account of the strong dollar, higher energy prices and weak global demand,” said Millan Mulraine, deputy head of U.S. strategy at TD Securities.

The Commerce Department said Wednesday the trade gap narrowed to $40.9 billion from March’s revised deficit of $50.6 billion. The March deficit was previously reported at $51.4 billion.

The 19.2 percent drop in the April trade deficit was the largest decrease since early 2009.

Analysts polled by Reuters had forecast the trade deficit falling to $44 billion.

Imports fell 3.3 percent to $230.8 billion as West Coast ports, a key entry point for goods to and from Asia, cleared a backlog created by a labor dispute that was settled earlier this year.

Exports increased 1 percent to $189.9 billion in April. A stronger U.S. dollar has in recent months made U.S. goods and services less affordable abroad.

Exports of U.S. services edged up to $60.9 billion, the highest ever recorded.

The April petroleum deficit stood at $6.8 billion, the lowest since March 2002.

Improved Hiring

Meanwhile, private employers added 201,000 jobs in May, the most since January, payrolls processor ADP said Wednesday.

That was in line with analyst forecasts and higher than a revised 165,000 jobs in April, which were the fewest since January 2014.

U.S. stock indexes were trading higher after the data, while prices for U.S. Treasuries fell. The dollar was weaker against a basket of currencies.

The ADP data came ahead of the U.S. Labor Department’s more comprehensive non-farm payrolls report Friday, which includes both public and private-sector employment.

Economists polled by Reuters are looking for total U.S. employment to have grown by 225,000 jobs in May, largely in line with April’s 223,000 increase. The unemployment rate is seen holding at a near seven-year low of 5.4 percent.
