A word of caution: Since we picked a single stock from each state, and choices in some Midwestern states are sparse, a few of these stocks are best suited to investors comfortable with a higher degree of risk. This is not a selection of our favorite stocks in the entire region, in other words. Take a look at the best stock to buy now in each state in the Midwest.

Both companies are cash-rich, and the combined entity should be able to quickly pay down debt accrued during the merger, say analysts at Credit Suisse. The deal gives Rockwell more-direct exposure to commercial airlines, which is a more lucrative business than selling to other parts manufacturers. Credit Suisse analysts expect Rockwell to boost earnings by 24% and sales by 66%, cumulatively, through the two fiscal years ending in September 2018. They believe the stock has potential to reach $120 over the next 12 months, representing a potential gain of 15%.

Sound of Music operated nine stores throughout Minnesota by 1978.[25] In 1981, the Roseville, Minnesota, Sound of Music location, at the time the largest and most profitable Sound of Music store, was hit by a tornado.[22] The store's roof was sheared off and showroom destroyed, but the storeroom was left intact.[22][26] In response, Schulze decided to have a "Tornado Sale" of damaged and excess stock in the damaged store's parking lot.[22] He poured the remainder of his marketing budget into advertising the sale, promising "best buys" on everything.[26] Sound of Music made more money during the four-day sale than it did in a typical month.[23]

In 1989, the company introduced a new store concept dubbed "Concept II".[24][27] Concept II replaced dimly lit industrial-style stores with brighter and more fashionably fixtured stores.[24] Stores also began placing all stock on the sales floor rather than in a stock room, had fewer salespersons and provided more self-help product information for its customers.[27][28] Best Buy also did away with commissioned salespeople.[22][27] The commission-free sales environment "created a more relaxed shopping environment free of the high-pressure sales tactics used in other stores," but was unpopular with salespersons and suppliers.[27] Upset that their products would no longer be pushed by salespeople, some suppliers such as Maytag, Whirlpool, and Sony stopped selling in Best Buy stores altogether.[22][23] The suppliers returned after Best Buy's sales and revenue grew following the roll-out of Concept II.[26]

Best Buy stores in the U.S. surpassed the 600-store mark and the company opened its first global-sourcing office in Shanghai in 2003.[42][43] In June, Best Buy divested itself of Musicland in a deal with Sun Capital Partners under which Sun Capital received all of Musicland's stock and debt.[44] Best Buy launched its "Reward Zone" loyalty program in July following an 8-month test of the program in San Diego, California.[45] Also in 2003, Best Buy's corporate offices were consolidated into a single campus in Richfield, Minnesota.

In the second quarter of 2007, Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal ordered an investigation into the company's use of an in-store website alleged to have misled customers on item sales prices.[93] In December 2007, the Los Angeles Times reported on the same issue, in which some customers claimed they thought they were surfing the Internet version of at an in-store kiosk only to learn that the site reflected in-store prices only. In response, company spokesperson Sue Busch indicated the in-store kiosks were not intended for price-match purposes and rather were a means to navigate in-store availability. Since the initial investigation, a banner was placed on the in-store site to make its customers more aware of the difference.[94]

Once the company sets the record date, the ex-dividend date is set based on stock exchange rules. The ex-dividend date for stocks is usually set one business day before the record date. If you purchase a stock on its ex-dividend date or after, you will not receive the next dividend payment. Instead, the seller gets the dividend. If you purchase before the ex-dividend date, you get the dividend.

On September 8, 2017, Company XYZ declares a dividend payable on October 3, 2017 to its shareholders. XYZ also announces that shareholders of record on the company's books on or before September 18, 2017 are entitled to the dividend. The stock would then go ex-dividend one business day before the record date.

Sometimes a company pays a dividend in the form of stock rather than cash. The stock dividend may be additional shares in the company or in a subsidiary being spun off. The procedures for stock dividends may be different from cash dividends. The ex-dividend date is set the first business day after the stock dividend is paid (and is also after the record date).

If you sell your stock before the ex-dividend date, you also are selling away your right to the stock dividend. Your sale includes an obligation to deliver any shares acquired as a result of the dividend to the buyer of your shares, since the seller will receive an I.O.U. or "due bill" from his or her broker for the additional shares. Thus, it is important to remember that the day you can sell your shares without being obligated to deliver the additional shares is not the first business day after the record date, but usually is the first business day after the stock dividend is paid.

Finding the best mutual fund to protect and grow your hard-earned retirement savings can take a little skill and, it might sometimes seem, a lot of luck. Do you put your trust in the latest hot stock picker or seek out superior long-term returns?

The IBD Best Mutual Fund Awards, just released for 2017, let you look for both at one time. The awards recognize top-notch funds that beat benchmark indexes in both short- and long-term comparisons. To make the cut, a mutual fund had to outperform in each of the last one-, three-, five- and 10-year periods, through Dec. 31, 2016.

Being a four-time winner is a herculean task. Among 2,813 mutual funds of all kinds that met the criteria of having at least $100 million in assets and 10 years of operation, only 410 beat their benchmark in each period.Of 1,104 U.S. diversified stock mutual funds in business for the entire decade tracked by Morningstar Inc., only 44 prevailed as four-time winners.

In some categories, beating the benchmark was easy. Out of 428 international stock funds, 129 beat their benchmark, the MSCI EAFE. That was a 30% victory rate. The subdued performance of the EAFE index in 2016, which gained just 1%, made for a low bar for managers to clear.

Whether you are looking for mutual funds to strengthen your current portfolio or just starting out, the IBD Best Mutual Funds Awards list is a great place to begin. You can pick among the funds to build core positions in your diversified retirement portfolio. International stock funds, sector funds and bond funds can help you add weight to parts of your portfolio where you want extra emphasis.

The market in 2017 will produce a new crop of best performers. Whether or not the latest winners will repeat, many by virtue of their proven ability to perform over the long term could be excellent choices for your retirement account.

Cisco's price surged to nearly $80 at the apex of the dot-com bubble in March 2000, making it the most valuable company in the world with a market cap of $500 billion. However, that rally wasn't sustainable, since the stock was trading at nearly 240 times earnings. The bubble popped, and Cisco's subsequent plunge made it a cautionary tale of the dot-com bust.

Cisco stock never came close to its dot-com bubble levels again. Today, Cisco has a market cap of just over $170 billion and trades at 18 times earnings. The most valuable company in the world today is Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), which has a market cap of $730 billion and trades at 17 times earnings.

Yes. Each year since then has brought further amendments to the Equal Pay Act. Effective January 1, 2017, Governor Brown signed a bill that added race and ethnicity as protected categories. California law now prohibits an employer from paying its employees less than employees of the opposite sex, or of another race, or of another ethnicity for substantially similar work. The provisions, protections, procedures, and remedies relating to race- or ethnicity-based claims are identical to the ones relating to sex. In addition, employers are prohibited from using prior salary to justify any sex-, race-, or ethnicity-based pay difference.

For example, if an employer begins to pay a female worker less than a male worker for substantially similar work in January 2016, and the employer cannot justify the unequal pay with any available defenses, for a non-willful violation, the female worker has until January 2018 to file a claim to seek recovery going back to January 2016. If she waits until January 2019 to file a claim, she can seek recovery going back only two years, or January 2017.

To use another example, if an employer begins to pay a female worker less than a male worker for substantially similar work in January 2016, but the employer subsequently starts to pay the female worker the same as the male worker beginning in January 2017, and the Equal Pay Act claim is filed in January 2019, the female worker can only go back two years for a non-willful violation, or back to January 2017. Thus, in this example, the female worker has missed the deadline for seeking remedies.
