This morning, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke testified in front of Congress on the health of the economy and the future plans of the Fed. And, in short, investors liked what they heard. At one point during his speech, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES: ^DJI  ) was up more than 150 points, but as of 12:55 p.m. EDT the index is up 93 points, or 0.6%. The S&P 500 (SNPINDEX: ^GSPC  ) is up 0.57%, while the Nasdaq has risen 0.32%. After both the Dow and the S&P 500 set new record closing prices yesterday, they seem poised to do it again today. And even though the Dow has given back some of its earlier gains, only three of its 30 components are trading in the red today. Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT  ) and Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO  ) are among the losers this afternoon. As my Foolish colleague discussed this morning, on May 22, … Continue reading

The 2013 calendar year may be over, but opportunities to lower last year’s tax liability are not. Indeed, while many of the most common tax-planning strategies used to accelerate income or defer deductions including tax-loss harvesting, prepaying medical expenses and managing your year-end bonus had to be implemented by Dec. 31, others remain ripe for the picking. If you know where to look. “In a year where tax rates are higher and the 3.8% surtax on net investment income will affect higher-income individuals, any deductions you can find will be worth even more,” said Bill Dendy, a certified financial planner and president of Elite Financial Management in Dallas.

Having conquered the southern mid-Atlantic region and the Carolinas with its acquisition of Harris Teeter (NYSE: HTSI  ) , will supermarket powerhouse Kroger (NYSE: KR  ) add the Northeast to its dominion, one of the few areas of the country where it doesn’t have a presence?

As someone who is constantly researching retirement, I find the recent funding cuts to military retirees very disheartening. Worse yet, I see this as a move to establish ground zero for the testing of changes to Social Security benefits. On Wednesday, the Senate passed a bipartisan budget that scales back cost of living adjustments for working age military retirees starting in 2015.  Several sources including Military.com suggests that qualified participants could lose between $3,700 and $6,200 per year, or an aggregate between $83,000 and $124,000 before they retire based on rank, age and years of service. Despite some protests, a few web articles, and assorted angry Facebook posts from former military personnel, its pretty much a done deal.  The message seems clear:  if youre young (under the age of 62) and capable there will be no perks for you.
