Readers who pay close attention to our annual rankings of the top-performing mutual funds may be forgiven if they exper颅ience a sense of d茅j vu with our March 2016 issue. Yes, we did publish mutual-fund rankings in our September 2015 issue. But weve decided to move our annual winners list from September to the March issue so we can base it on returns as of December 31. (On Kiplinger.com, we continue to update the rankings of top-performing mutual funds in 11 categories with new data every month.) Its fair to say that most people focus more on returns through the end of the year than they do on figures through June 30, says ex颅ecutive editor Manny Schiffres, who supervises our investing coverage.

Financial analyst: It’s time to cut up Yahoo! Embattled CEO Marissa Mayer believes that a leaner, more focused Yahoo is the solution to its growth problems. Yahoo announced a massive, $4.4 billion loss last quarter and said it will lay off 15% of its workforce as part of a plan to return the company to “modest to accelerating growth” next year and in 2018. The layoffs will reduce Yahoo’s headcount by about 1,600 employees to around 9,000 staff. The new plan, announced Tuesday afternoon, will focus on Yahoo’s core strengths: Its products (Search, Mail and Tumblr) and its media brands (News, Sports, Finance and Lifestyle). The company will also streamline its advertising platforms, close five global offices and shutter businesses that aren’t growing, including games, smart TV and scripted TV shows. 10 Best Consumer Service Stocks To Buy For 2016: Container Store (The)(TCS)   The Container Store Group, Inc. engages … Continue reading

Stocks are getting pummeled today, and while it would be easy to blame inflation data and hawkish comments from Fed governors for the weakness, I’m not sure I buy it. Bloomberg News Yes, the S&P 500 dropped 0.9% to 2,047.21, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 180.73 points, or 1%, to 17,529.98, and the Nasdaq Composite slumped 1.3% to 4,715.73. But is inflation really a worry? As my colleague Amey Stone wrote this morning about the Consumer Price Index, which rose 0.4% in April from the previous month, “there’s a whiff of inflation in the air, but not much more than that.” And as for the Fed governors, well bog Atlanta Fed President Dennis Lockhart, a non-voting member of the Fed, and San Francisco Fed President John Williams agreed that two to three rate hikes would be appropriate this year. Still, it’s Janet Yellen’s Fed, and two outliers probably … Continue reading
