Markets End in Positive Terrain as Mergers Overpower Iraq Fears

Although turmoil in Iraq churned up market volatility this month, a slew of strong economic data kept markets on the upswing. As our trading session ended June 16, 2014, homebuilder sentiment and solid manufacturing data pushed Wall Street ahead. When we started our session, a survey from HSBC indicated that the slowdown in the Chinese economy was weakening, and a reading on Chinese manufacturing in May revealed the best numbers in five months.

LIFO Coalition seeks contributions

The LIFO Coalition is seeking contributions to fund a new grass roots campaign to preserve LIFO in any new tax reform package that may come out of the House or the Senate. With the long-awaited release of the Tax Reform Act of 2014, the LIFO accounting method is once again under threat from policymakers in Washington.  Make no mistake- the threat is bipartisan, the issues complex and the consequences of failure to preserve LIFO enormous and far-reaching. 

While House Ways and Means Committee Chairman David Camp’s (R-Mich.) proposal is dead in the water in this session of Congress, the likelihood of its provisions serving as a baseline for future legislative consideration, or negotiation, in 2015 is profound.  Accordingly, the Coalition believes a wide spectrum of stakeholders can and should take action now to ensure LIFO is not relegated to the role of “poor cousin” to more visible, politically potent tax reforms or pay-for requirements in the not too distant future.
