1. US Bank Earnings Up Nearly 13 Percent in Q3 -

WASHINGTON (AP) – U.S. banks' earnings in the July-September period jumped nearly 13 percent from a year earlier as continued growth in lending fueled interest income.

The data issued Tuesday by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. showed strength in the banking industry more than eight years after the financial crisis struck. However, the impact of low oil prices on energy companies led banks to continue to post bigger losses on commercial and industrial loans. Some energy companies have struggled to repay loans, causing distress for banks in oil and gas producing regions.

NEW YORK (AP) – Worried that the election will ruin your 401(k)?

Don't be, fund managers say, no matter who wins the White House. As long as you're a long-term investor willing to ride through whatever market bumps occur after Election Day, and there certainly could be scary ones, presidential elections historically haven't had much impact on stocks over the long term. Other factors, such as how expensive stocks are relative to their earnings and what the Federal Reserve is doing with interest rates, are more important factors for the market than who sits in the White House.

16. Digital Assets – You Need a Plan -

Ray’s Take With all the technological changes that have happened in recent years, digital assets need to be a part of your estate plan. 

From bank accounts to Facebook, PayPal and more, a good chunk of our personal and financial lives are online. What about eBooks, iTunes and frequent flyer accounts? According to a 2013 McAfee survey, the average person has roughly $35,000 worth of assets stored on digital devices. That’s a lot of digital property to be left floating around.

WASHINGTON (AP) – U.S. consumer prices edged up 0.2 percent in August as a surge in medical care offset flat readings for food and energy.

It was the biggest monthly increase since February. The climb in core inflation was led by a record jump in drug prices and the biggest rise in doctor and hospital charges in a quarter-century.

The August reading was the lowest since February 2010, and last month's 4.1-point drop was the biggest since November 2008 when the U.S. economy was in a recession. Still, anything above 50 signals growth, and services firms have now expanded for 79 straight months.

60. Yellen Suggests Rate Hike is Coming, Offers No Timetable -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said Friday that the case for raising interest rates has strengthened in light of a solid job market and an improved outlook for the U.S. economy and inflation. But she stopped short of offering any timetable.

61. Yellen, in Speech Friday, Could Send Signal About Next Hike -

WASHINGTON (AP) – The job market is humming, and so are the U.S. financial markets, with major stock indexes near record highs.

All that would normally trigger a green light for the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates – especially when they're barely above all-time lows. Yet the Fed, still casting a wary eye on the economy, has yet to signal that it will resume raising rates soon.

62. The Hidden Risk to the Economy in Corporate Balance Sheets -

NEW YORK (AP) – America has a debt problem, but it's not what you think. Yes, the federal government owes trillions of dollars more than it did a few years ago.

The merger agreements were valued at a combined $325 million in stock and cash at the time.

Malco Theatres hopes to start construction next month on its boutique movie theater Downtown thanks to a hefty grant from the CCDC.

At its Aug. 17 meeting, the Center City Development Corp. approved a $125,000 grant for the “high-impact” project. The grant amount soars past what the CCDC, an affiliate board of the Downtown Memphis Commission, has awarded in the past. Most of the storefront improvement grants over the past few years have come in below $30,000.

68. BancorpSouth Puts Two Planned Mergers on Hold -

A downgrade of BancorpSouth’s Community Reinvestment Act rating means two mergers have been tabled for the time being.

73. Rules Change Once You Retire -

Ray’s Take: Retirement is a time when a lot of the old financial rules get flipped on their head. Most people who retire don’t want to go back to work, and even if they did, they may not be afforded the opportunity. Wal-Mart needs only so many greeters. At this point there’s no turning back, and what money you’ve saved will be the lion’s share of what you will need to live off of.

74. Last Word: Wiseacre At The Coliseum, Recession Overdue and Tubby's Schedule -

So you were at the Mid-South Coliseum every time the doors were open and you could scrape together the price of a ticket south of $10 in the city’s golden age of concerts.

But these days there aren’t that many shows to go to, the ticket prices are much higher and truth be known you probably wouldn’t go to that many shows these days.

75. 'Student' Credit Cards Aren't for All Students, or Even Most -

As parents prepare their rising freshmen for life at college, many are leaving out a crucial piece of information: how to build credit.

76. Make the Most of Your ‘Smart Chip’ Card -

Whether at the grocery store or your favorite local boutique, you may have noticed an increasing number of people “dipping” their bank or credit cards rather than “swiping.” This is thanks to the continued roll-out of the EMV, or “smart chip,” cards. 

77. US Regulators: Still Heavy Risk in Big Bank Loans -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal regulators say risk remains heavy in large loans made by banks and other financial institutions, though lending standards have improved.

78. US GDP Grows a Weak 1.2 Percent in Second Quarter -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Growth in the U.S. economy was sluggish again in the spring, dashing expectations for a robust rebound after a tough winter. Stronger consumer spending was offset by weakness in housing construction and a big slowdown in the pace that businesses restocked store shelves.

WASHINGTON (AP) – On again. Off again. On again?

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House on Friday predicted that the government's budget deficit for the soon-to-end fiscal year will hit $600 billion, an increase of $162 billion over last year's tally and a reversal of a steady trend of large but improving deficits on President Barack Obama's watch.

87. US Producer Prices Rose in June at Fastest Pace in 13 Months -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Prices charged by U.S. producers rose in June at the fastest pace in 13 months, reflecting a big jump in the price of gasoline and other energy products.

A 3-Star Healthy Task Force appointed to propose a method for catching Tennesseans in a health care coverage gap is taking a politically safe road to reach the same goal as Insure Tennessee.
