Daily Transcript Top Influentials discuss the economy; our week-long series on business valuation begins; maximizing loan recovery and more.

  • Valuation: The best return on investment for business owners

    This is the first in a series of five articles that will address the intersection of years of capital/cash investment and entrepreneurial efforts and advice that result in the creation, enhancement, preservation and distribution of private equity value. Completing this loop is often a liquidity event with the hope of a balanced life through wealth management.

  • Will Wells Fargo make a move?

    The credit crisis has yielded its fair share of shockers, and here is the latest: The stock market value of Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC) now exceeds that of Citigroup (NYSE: C).

  • Retailers start to get ready for school

    Summer has just begun, but retailers are already focusing on back-to-school sales, which are expected to be especially critical this year as consumers rein in spending.

  • Maximizing recovery on your loan
