SHAREHOLDER ALERT - Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC Notifies Investors of Class Action Against Newell Brands Inc. (NWL) and Lead Plaintiff Deadline: August 20, 2018
NEW YORK, June 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC notifies investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Newell Brands, Inc. ("Newell" or the "Company") (NYSE: NWL) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased or otherwise acquired Newell Brands securities between February 6, 2017 and January 24, 2018, both dates inclusive (the "Class Period"). Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm's site: http://www.bgandg.com/nwl. This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Newell's retail channel was loaded with extremely high levels of unsold Newell product; (2) contrary to defendants' representations, the build-up of Newell inventory in the retail channel was due to Company-specific rather than macroeconomic reasons; (3) due to the unusually high levels of unsold inventory in the retail channel, Newell was exposed to a heightened risk that it would experience slower sales growth in future periods; and (4) undisclosed managerial and cultural differences in the legacy Newell and Jarden businesses had created significant internal discord that was having a material adverse effect on the Company's operating performance. As a result of defendants' failure to disclose this adverse information, Newell stock was artificially inflated more than $55.00 per share during the Class Period. On November 2, 2017, Newell revealed its poor 2017 third quarter financial results. On a related earnings call, defendants said that the Company's "disappointing outcome" and low sales growth were because of "retailers pull[ing] back on order rates and rebalanced inventories". Following this news, Newell stock dropped $10.99 per share, or about 27%, or to close at $30.01. Later, on January 25, 2018, Newell preannounced its 2017 financial results and said that it expected its 2017 core sales growth of roughly 0.8% compared to the previous forecast of 1.5% to 2.0%. Newell attributed this drop to retailer inventory destocking and said it was looking into "strategic options" to restructure its business. Later that day, Newell divulged that three of its Board members had stepped down. Following these revelations, Newell stock dropped $6.42 per share, or 21%, to close at $24.81 on January 25, 2018. A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to review a copy of the Complaint you can visit the firm's site: http://www.bgandg.com/nwl  or you may contact Peretz Bronstein, Esq. or his Investor Relations Analyst, Yael Hurwitz of Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC at 212-697-6484.

View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20180622005539/en/ Samantha du Preez, senior schools manager, EverFi; Gia Holmes, career and technical education instructor, Cass Technical High School; Maniah Akram, Cass Technical High School student and scholarship recipient; Byna Elliott, chief community and economic development director, Fifth Third Bank; Lori Singleton, assistant principal, Cass Technical High School (Photo: Business Wire) The 28 winners from the Fifth Third 10-state footprint were chosen based on an essay they submitted that detailed how Finance Academy coursework had a positive impact on their plans and understanding of the core concepts of personal finance and entrepreneurship. Each winner is to receive $2,500 in a 529 savings plan to use. The 2017-18 school year was the first for Finance Academy and the scholarship contest. “Finance Academy allows students the opportunity to leverage technology to make sound financial decisions. We are excited about playing a role in providing financial empowerment education to so many students across the country,” said Byna Elliott, chief community and economic development officer at Fifth Third. “The students who are receiving the scholarships have excelled in the program and we are pleased to offer them a savings scholarship to help them with their future.” Fifth Third Bank launched Finance Academy, a digital personal finance and entrepreneurship education program, in October 2017.

Finance Attitude - 3 Ways to Buy Stock without a Full-Service Broker
Trading a stock is in most cases done via brokerage firms. The investor first finds a reputable brokerage firm to facilitate the process. The full-service broker charges a hefty commission that eats into your investment returns. For these among other reasons, you may be compelled to decide not to use a stockbroker or avoid having a brokerage account to reduce the costs. The direct investment option has some pros and cons which you will need to weigh given your unique circumstances and preferences.  
Finance Attitude - 4 Things To Do Before You Trade Penny Stocks
Penny stocks are shares that are traded for $5 each or less. Majority of these penny stocks are on the major stock exchanges such as NASDAQ, NYSE, American Stock Exchange, and the Bulletin board. The Bulletin Board is the best to get higher quality penny stocks. However, there are a few smaller ones which trade on the dark markets such as Pink Sheets, OTCQX and OTCQB. Focus on the high-quality companies which trade on the major trading exchanges to avoid losses and refrain from trading in the dark markets. Also, avoid free stock picks that promoters are pushing you to buy as they could be scams. Most of the genuine companies increase in size and price without a promoter.
Finance Attitude - 5 incredible investments to supplement Social Security Fund
5 Incredible Investments to Supplement Social Security Fund
Majority of Americans have social security trust funds as an integral part of their investment plans. Investors can include other types of investments to supplement social security funds to accumulate wealth. Here is a list of 5 investments that they can include in their portfolio: 1.    Invest in annuities An annuity is an investment contract where you pay a single lump- sum amount of money called a premium up front or through flexible premium payments over time into a financial institution and in exchange, you get paid a regular income slowly over a period of time. It is a sort of hybrid between investing and life insurance. The payment of the income can start now which is an immediate annuity or in the future which is called deferred annuity. It allows you to convert a portion of your retirement funds into a stream of guaranteed constant income payments for life. For example, you can invest $100,000 up front in exchange for $10,000 annually in payouts. It is one of the safest investment plans where providers are required by state law to protect their outstanding annuity contracts with cash reserves on a dollar for dollar basis. 2.    Invest in a high-yield savings account If you keep your savings in a short-term savings accounts and certificates of deposit (CD), you earn income from the interest rates offered but the rates are very small. There are financial institutions that have better terms and interests if you commit your savings to a larger CD like a five year CD offer, for example, the Jumbo CDs. Whereas the one year CD offers around 1.5% to 1.7% in annual interest, the five years one would offer as much as 2.3% per year. 3.    Invest in bonds Bonds are debts that you lend to a corporate entity or to the government and they pay you back the principal amount plus the interest. The Treasury bonds are issued by the federal government to finance its budget deficits and are offered at lower rates but with no chance of failure to repay you back or rather zero risks of default. The Treasury bond yields on average 2.4% annually. A corporate bond, on the other hand, has better rates to compensate for the likelihood of not getting repaid or higher risk of default. The corporate bond yield is better and can be more than 5.5% annually. 4.    Invest in dividend stocks Invest in dividend stocks as they guarantee investors steady cash dividend payouts and then offer them an opportunity to reinvest the cash dividends to purchase of additional shares or fractional shares of stock on the dividend payment date. This can be a brilliant way to take advantage of the compounding potential because instead of receiving your quarterly dividends, the brokerage firm or the transfer agent plows the payouts directly towards the purchase of additional shares of stock. 5.    Alternative investment Another way to accumulate wealth is through investing in alternative investments like real estate, commodities, cryptocurrency, Art, Wine, peer to peer loans, franchising, comic book, and Hedge funds among others. Most alternative investments have low liquidity, minimum investments and fee structures compared to mutual funds and ETFs. Real estate is an investment that appreciates with time and thus offers an excellent form of investment.
