The market may be closed for the next few days, but there are a couple of ETFs that will lose you a bunch of money...or at least they have over the past 4 years. Why has Direxion Daily Financial Bear 3X Shares lost over 99% since its inception?

Buying based on dividend yield alone might burn you in the end.
The Motley Fool - An average dividend yield can often beat a much higher yield.

ICYMI, I found a regional bank that had greater return last year than everyone's favorite tech giant Apple. Find out how Regions Financial was able to do it and if there is still a chance to reap these awesome returns going forward: http://bit.ly/P79VBX

Average length of a major airline bankruptcy: 19 months. Seems kind of silly to be talking about a merger for American and US Airways a mere four days after AMR filed.
The Motley Fool - Give AMR some time to resolve its bankruptcy issues before wading into the airline industry.

Can American Eagle succeed separate from American Airlines? Only time will tell.
The Motley Fool - The proposed spinoff of American Eagle could rely on the future success of AMR.

Prince, Perelson & Associates was one of the first recruitment firms to meet with me when I moved back to Utah after completing school in Illinois. They helped me write a more targeted resume that helped me land a lot more interviews than before. They also sent me on multiple interviews in the early stages of my job search, and while those didn't result in an offer, I always received worthwhile feedback to help prepare for the next interview. There were a few negatives that nearly soured my relationship with Prince, Perelson. First, after going on a handful of interviews in my first month working with the company, I went nearly three months between landing another interview because of the firm, and it was only after I decided to pursue opportunities with their bread and butter client Goldman Sachs. While I ended up going to interview for three different positions with Goldman in the last month, I don't buy for a second that they didn't have any available positions that I fit in the interceding months. Secondly, which kind of pivots of my last point, was the lack of communication at times from the firm. I worked with three different recruiters, and it was nearly impossible to get them to return a phone call. I was sent on numerous interviews with instructions to contact the recruiter immediately after to do a follow-up, and almost every time I had to leave a message as they were "away from their desk" when I called. I expected a call back within the next few hours, if not within 48 hours, but often it took an email two or three days after the fact to get any sort of response from them. Finally, in the interceding period mentioned above, there was never any contact with PPA that I did not initiate, which can be kind of disheartening when you are hoping that they are looking for work. Nevertheless, without Gillan at Prince, Perelson & Associates, I don't know how much longer I would have been looking for a job. While it would have been nice to land a permanent position, she was able to find a job for me with an organization that has long-term potential down the road. I'm glad to be not waiting for interviews and phone calls anymore, and it is all because of PPA.
