Energy's Wild Ride--Energy Sector Bankruptcies E-Report

BankruptcyData's Energy Sector Bankruptcies report anticipates that overall Chapter 11 activity will remain at a high level for the foreseeable future.

Looking Back at 2016 and Ahead to 2017: Stock Market Recap & Forecast

Excerpted from the January 2017 Issue
The market’s previous assumptions about the U.S. economy--sluggish growth, rising government regulation, near-zero interest rates--seem to have reversed overnight with the election of Donald Trump. We think the changes run deeper. Households and companies are starting to move past the financial crisis, which peaked eight years ago. Demand is picking up.

Kiplinger points out that despite the post-election stock market surge, not all stocks have benefited from the uptick: "More than 100 issues in the S&P 500 have fallen in price this year, including dozens that have slumped by more than 10%....Yet these stocks won’t all stay in the dumps forever.
