It was a good year for the stock market. The S&P 500 Index was up in excess of 12.5 percent with the other averages putting in a good performance as well. Naturally, investors are hoping for another year of stellar returns. Is that a reasonable expectation?

At the beginning of each year, people like me are expected to gaze into crystal balls or swirl the tea leaves at the bottom of a cup and pontificate on what the New Year will be like for investors. Unfortunately, I have an "Eight Ball" but no crystal ball and I drink coffee not tea. Honestly, I have as much chance of calling the market over the next 12 months as you do. However, there are some things I do know to be

Sure, we love our kids. Of course we want them to get ahead, so when your son, daughter, or nephew asks for your signature right next to theirs on that private student loan application it is tempting. But before you sign on the dotted line consider this.

When you consent to being a student loan co-signer you are in for the life of the loan. If the student fails to make payments, you must. If they are late, you get the notices, too. Their financial problems will impact your credit score and could haunt you the next time you apply for a car loan, home mortgage, or simply a credit card.

I know that putting aside your emotions is difficult at best in the decision-making process. Yet, you

Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) and his team of brainiacs crack the German code in 'The Imitation Game.'

Psst! I'll share this with you, but please don't tell any of my not-so-smart friends that I gave "The Imitation Game" a positive review. I won't hear the end of it: 'You gave that gibberish a three? What a bore ... all those English eggheads, hardly any action, full of that stuff about problem solving and arithmetic. I want to be entertained. I don't want to go to school. What were they talking about, anyway? Geez ... you film critics.'
