  • The Margin: Apple’s titanium credit card comes with surprisingly strict care instructions
    22 August 2019
    Most people don’t care if their credit card gets a scratch or a scuff, as long as they can still buy things with it. But the sleek new titanium Apple Card may change that.
  • StarHub share price crashed into wall
    22 August 2019

    Since my last coverage, StarHub share price suffered a catastrophic meltdown, falling from $1.55 to the current $1.35 level within the span of only a month. The culprit is, of course, the disappointing 2QFY2019 financial results. Against the backdrop of the persistent bearish StarHub share price, the telco certainly looks like a company in crisis.

    When Starhub was booted out of the prestigious Straits Times Index (STI) in 2018 it was a harbinger of things to come. Fellow comrade, SIAEC, suffered similar fate back in 2017 and its share price went into tailspin. On this basis, I don’t see how StarHub share price can fight destiny as its mobile services business is solely entrenched in Singapore.

    The massive plunge of StarHub share price since 2015 would have inflicted plenty of heart pains for long-time investors as this counter used to be a dividend darling among Singapore investors. For sure, the entry of TPG had soured the mood for telco stocks and dented the growth prospects for local telco players, which already face a saturated mobile market in Singapore.

    As the telco war continues to unfold, I fear the worst for StarHub share price. Make no mistake, the fourth telco …

  • Question about sector rebalancing
    22 August 2019

    If I have multiple stocks in the same sector, bought at different times, and I want to diversify some more, how do I decide which of the stocks to sell first? I plan to ultimately sell a few, but not all, of the positions I own.

    Edit: Want to provide some detail for the sake of discussion:

    • Does it generally make more sense to take profit on the winners or the trim the losers?
    • Does it make sense to penalize ones I bought at higher basis versus lower basis? As obvious from the recent movements, the higher basis stocks were bought earlier than the lower basis ones. However, the higher basis stocks also reflected my higher views of those stocks while some of the lower basis ones were simply deemed "low enough" to take a risk. On the other hand, my margin of safety is greater on the lower basis stocks.
    • Does size or share price matter? Does it make sense to sell the higher priced stocks first versus lower priced stock to free up more liquidity?

  • How would a value added tax affect stocks?
    22 August 2019

    Many countries use a value added tax on corporations. This taxes on all revenue earned rather than just the profits (some companies like amazon pay nothing).

    There is some talk to include this tax in the US. In Europe this tax is averaged around 20%. Would implementing this in the US essentially make all my stocks 20% less valuable or am I misunderstanding the impact it would have?

  • Lounge Review: Dan Lounge in Ben Gurion Airport, Tel Aviv
    22 August 2019

    After a 10-day trip in Israel, I was excited to be back home with my family — but less enthused for the 13-hour flight to get there. To soften the blow of my upcoming economy seat experience on El Al, I spent a relaxing hour or so enjoying the Dan Lounge at Tel Aviv’s Ben...

  • Ex girlfriend maxing out our credit card, can I get off of it?
    22 August 2019

    If this is an easy or basic question, forgive me. I'm bad at finance and new to this kind of thing. Basically, my ex girlfriend and I had decided to get a Capitol One credit card together back when we were togethet because I needed to boost my credit (it was bad from my young years of being dumb). Now, the card is "officially" in her name, and as far as I know, I'm just an "authorized user". I had my own card, though. 2 months ago, we split up and I moved out of our apartment. I gave her my credit card and agreed to pay off what was owed from my purchases (roughly $120, including interest), and she agreed to get me taken off of the card once this was done. I'm currently down to my last payment, and she has shown no interest to even look into how to get me off of the card. Not only that, but she maxed out our account buying herself a new TV (fair enough, I got ours in the breakup) and by buying fast food for herself and her new rebound. She made a payment of $50 after buying the TV and said she would keep doing so because she "has money saved up", but immediatrly after is when she started maxing the credit card out. Since then, I've paid it down a bit because of me making the payments I promised.

    The kicker, and what set off this post, is that I just got a notification through Credit Karma that my credit score has dropped because of the extremely high credit usage last night. This is infuriating. I've been busting my butt to get my credit right, and she knows that. That was the entire purpose of us getting the card together. I fully plan on paying off the remaining balance that I personally owe, because I gave my word, and that means something to her. My worry is that she will just max it out again and my credit score will get hit again, and she will never look into getting me taken off because either A.) she's lazy or, B.) She'll refuse to do it out of spite. With that said, is there a way I can get myself removed if she never acts on this? I'm also afraid to have this done because I'm worried removing myself from the card will lower my credit score even more, due to a loss of an open account. The only other things I have open on my credit is a car payment (which she Co-signed on because I couldn't get it myself) and a small personal loan. Would it be worth the headache of dealing with her to just off my part and stay on the account, regardless if she keeps maxing it out or not, or would it be better to find out how to remove myself as an authorized user from the card (and if so, how would I do this?) and just take the hit from removing the open account from my credit. This has become beyond stressful, especially during a time when I'm trying to move on and I'm working on No Contact, trying not to speak to her at all.

  • Need help understanding my options for medical bill
    22 August 2019

    I had to take my mom to ER when she was visiting me out of country. I stupidly put her information and mine on the ER papers as well as the travel insurance we purchased for her and my dad. Before I took her to ER, I called the travel insurance and got an approval. 5 hr. visit with just bloodwork and 2 IV and medicine came to $22,000. My mom had a mini heart attack when she saw the bill. I said “this is why we got the insurance”. Well, I learned the hard way it wasn’t that easy. The insurance refused to pay stating she is older than 70! But they sold me the insurance... After months of back and forth, because I got approval and was able to prove the phone record, they paid 20,000. Now the hospital keeps calling for the $2000 remaining. They don’t live here, they don’t have any income. I told them several times this, and the fact that I know hospitals give some break to tourists but they say she is considered “insured”. I tell them it is travel insurance but they keep calling back and sending my mom letters. They say they can set a payment plan. What are my options? Do I have to pay this? They don’t have this kind of money. Can they come to visit US if this is on their credit report? Today I was listening on NPR, if you even pay 1c, they can sue you for old debt. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

  • My mother (60 yo) is in dire financial straits, to the point of "contemplating giving up on life"
    22 August 2019

    Hi everybody, first post on /r/personalfinance, so apologies in advance if I violated any subreddit rules.

    For the past several years, my mother (who is divorced and single, living in an expensive part of NJ) has been in dire financial straits. She never had to worry about financial responsibility as my father handled all those types of matters. Recently, she has really been struggling due to her low paying job, lack of money (alimony has ended), and her large degree of tax debt (not positive, but I believe it is as much as $100,000).

    This has taken a mental/emotional toll on her, to the point where she has started saying things like "I don't know how I can continue". We are certainly very worried about this from a self-harm perspective. However, in the interest of compartmentalizing, I am making this post to see if others have advice about how to proceed financially. Some contextual info is included below to provide a better picture of her situation.

    She works as a nurse making roughly $20/hr, between 32-40 hrs/week. She has several health problems, including diabetes and muscular dystrophy (which makes it difficult for her to get around) and a weight problem due in part to those issues. She has around $6000 in savings and owns part of my grandparent's house due to inheritance (not sure the precise value of her share). My brother and I are willing to help her financially but neither of us make enough to make a huge impact. She has recently made an offer in compromise to the IRS, with the hopes of reducing her tax debt to $10,000, though she has not yet heard back.

    My brothers and I have urged her for years to live more frugally, but she is very set in her ways and it is tough to get her to compromise on living conditions/luxuries. I certainly do not discourage comments to that effect, however. It would also be helpful to hear any larger scale advice on how to proceed legally and/or otherwise (e.g. get a loan and pay off the tax debt, etc.). That about sums it up though, happy to answer any questions for clarification or additional info. Look forward to hearing people's thoughts and thank you all in advance for taking the time to help.

  • College trying to say I owe them 2.5x more than what I should. And saying that not paying could make me owe them more money.
    22 August 2019

    So I go to a trade school, and I am on my last semester and should only have one more payment to make of about $1,480. The head of campus administration/dean, is emailing me about an apparent $3,476.75, and I have no idea what could encurred these fees. She added at the end of the email that not paying/dropping out could cause me to owe the school more money. I felt like that was extremely shady and happened to find out when digging little deeper into the school (granted, something I should have done before I guess) that they have like 3/3.5 star reviews according to Google, and have a %41. 9 graduation rate, according to datausa.com. I just really don't know what to do about it at the moment as I have no idea if this is common amongst shady colleges/trade school or not.

  • Credit card payment
    22 August 2019

    Hi all,

    I am planning on making a $500 payment to one of my credit cards that charges 24.5% interest. This payment is only half of what is on my statement. I also have a card that charges 26.75% and this payment would cover the $400 statement I have. Both statements close within a day of each other. So should I get one card all paid off and not use it and then put the rest of the money I make in the next 4 weeks into the $1000 card? I made a plan to just attack the higher balance one but would like some input.

    Any words of advice is appreciated!
