Welcome to The Salary Chronicles, where we’re bringing transparency to negotiation and salaries, one story at a time. We ask women to share their experiences negotiating their salary and what their advice is for others doing the same. We share these stories anonymously so they feel comfortable speaking as openly and as freely as possible.

This week we’re speaking with a woman who was in a career rut and felt undervalued. Instead of staying stuck, she worked on improving her whole self, and as a result was offered a job that exceeded the ambitious income goal she had set for herself. 

Title: Management Consultant

Location: Denver, CO

Original Salary: $45k

Negotiated Salary: $80k

What was the situation?

I had been working as a consultant for 4 years and by the end I hated it. The hours were long, I wasn’t making a lot of money, and I didn’t want to move up any further with my company. On the outside, it looked like I had a great career, but deep down I knew it wasn’t a fit.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks For 2019: Mastercard Incorporated(MA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rich Smith]

    Would you like to pay for that with Mastercard (NYSE:MA), Visa (NYSE:V), or PayPal (NASDAQ:PYPL)?

    That’s the question Sears Outlet’s website asked me earlier this week. And here’s the funny bit: I actually wanted to pay with my new American Express (NYSE:AXP) card, but because of a coding glitch on Sears’ website, the field wasn’t big enough to enter all the required numbers. To work around that snafu, I was forced to add my AmEx card to my PayPal account, then charge my new dishwasher to the AmEx card on PayPal.

  • [By ]

    Card networks Visa (NYSE: V) and Mastercard (NYSE: MA), which benefit from the same tailwinds, aren’t much better, both with minuscule yields of 0.7%.

  • [By Leo Sun]

    Nubank offers a virtual credit card from Mastercard (NYSE:MA) to five million active customers. Its mobile app lets users track real-time transactions, contact customer support, apply for higher credit limits, and perform other services.

  • [By Leo Sun, Chuck Saletta, and Jordan Wathen]

    It is still a solid long-term growth stock. But according to a team of Motley Fool contributors, three other stocks — GrubHub (NYSE:GRUB), Tableau Software (NYSE:DATA), and Mastercard (NYSE:MA) — might offer better returns for now. 

  • [By Eric Volkman]

    “Steering” refers to the practice of merchants encouraging customers to use one (or more) method(s) of payment in favor of another, either through discounts or direct requests (“Bob’s Beanz Prefers Visa and Mastercard”). The process tends to be at AmEx’s expense because the company charges its merchants higher per-transaction fees than its eternal rivals Visa (NYSE:V) and Mastercard (NYSE:MA).

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks For 2019: Sigma Designs, Inc.(SIGM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Steve Symington]

    Data source: Silicon Laboratories.

    What happened with Silicon Labs this quarter?
    Revenue was above the high end of guidance provided in late January, which called for a range of $196 million to $202 million. On an adjusted (non-GAAP) basis, which excludes items like equity compensation and acquisition costs, net income was $38.3 million, or $0.87 per share — also above guidance for adjusted earnings per share of between $0.73 and $0.79. IoT revenue grew 17% year over year to $103 million. Infrastructure revenue jumped 37% year over year to $49 million. Broadcast revenue declined 3% to $36 million. Access revenue fell 6% to $17 million. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, on April 18, 2018, Silicon Labs closed its $240 million acquisition of Sigma Designs’ (NASDAQ:SIGM) Z-Wave business. Silicon Labs had initially agreed to acquire all of Sigma Designs this past December for $282 million, but amended the deal last quarter to include only its Z-Wave business after certain closing conditions weren’t met. In any case, the purchase significantly expands Silicon Labs’ position in mesh networking for smart homes.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now

Watching the fireworks yesterday, a houseguest commented on why the techno display is bad for the environment (there’s always one in every crowd, isn’t there…!) It’s hard to ignore the majesty of a well produced fireworks display, and I don’t really see too many people hopping on the “let’s clean up the environment by eliminating standard 4th of July fare” bandwagon, but the issue did spark a larger discussion about clean energy, and in particular, LED lighting.

Incandescent bulbs were phased out beginning in 2007, and now, 10 years later, no incandescent light is manufactured in or imported for sale into the United States. These notoriously inefficient sources of light have been replaced globally with LED lights, which are more energy efficient, emit greater light, last multiple times longer than traditional bulbs, and are far cooler from an operational – and now a style quotient – standpoint.

Shares of Canara Bank fell over 4 percent in morning trade as investors turned wary of the stock post its Q4 show.

The stock touched an intraday high of Rs 243.45 and an intraday low of Rs 236.15.

The bank on Friday reported a net loss of Rs 4,859.77 crore for the fourth quarter ending March 2018 due to three-fold rise in provisions towards bad loans.

Bad loans surged on account of the Reserve Bank of India’s circular on revised guidelines, divergences in classification of non-performing assets (NPAs) and some pain in the agriculture loans.

    Merger mania hit a wall Thursday. Tribune Media Co. (NYSE: TRCO) killed off its merger deal with Sinclair Broadcast Group (Nasdaq: SBGI) and filed a breach of contract lawsuit against its suitor. Tribune alleges that the broadcasting firm was very aggressive with regulators as it sought approval for a deal. Tribune also claims that Sinclair refused to sell stations in certain markets, a condition of the deal. Oil prices are trying to recover after a 3% slump on Wednesday. The decline came after the first round of sanctions against Iran by the U.S. government. Iran, which shipped three million barrels of oil per day in July, might now see its demand for crude dry up. This is likely to exacerbate existing trade tensions between the United States and the Middle Eastern regime.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Data source: Silicon Laboratories.

    What happened with Silicon Labs this quarter?
    Revenue was above the high end of guidance provided in late January, which called for a range of $196 million to $202 million. On an adjusted (non-GAAP) basis, which excludes items like equity compensation and acquisition costs, net income was $38.3 million, or $0.87 per share — also above guidance for adjusted earnings per share of between $0.73 and $0.79. IoT revenue grew 17% year over year to $103 million. Infrastructure revenue jumped 37% year over year to $49 million. Broadcast revenue declined 3% to $36 million. Access revenue fell 6% to $17 million. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, on April 18, 2018, Silicon Labs closed its $240 million acquisition of Sigma Designs’ (NASDAQ:SIGM) Z-Wave business. Silicon Labs had initially agreed to acquire all of Sigma Designs this past December for $282 million, but amended the deal last quarter to include only its Z-Wave business after certain closing conditions weren’t met. In any case, the purchase significantly expands Silicon Labs’ position in mesh networking for smart homes.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Own Right Now

With the current bull market entering its eighth year and the S&P 500 trading wellabove its historic average, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to find and buy cheap stocks today — challenging, but not impossible.

In fact, some of businesses’ biggest names trade at significant discounts to the market, including companies like Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK.B), Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO), and International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM). As such, let’s dive into what specifically makes these value stocks particularly intriguing investing opportunities today.

Berkshire Hathaway

A monument to the powers of savvy capital allocation, Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway has produced so impressive a track record of investment excellence that it may never be seen again. Since 1965, Berkshire shares have appreciated at an average annual rate of 20.1% per year, which translates to a 1,972,000% increase in value.

Today, Berkshire also mirrors its octogenarian CEO in some respects. Like Buffett, Berkshire has grown mature, its days of torrent growth largely in its rear-view mirror. However, the company controls an enviable assortment of high-quality businesses that will continue to throw off substantial amounts of free cash. Though Buffet and his longtime business partner are irreplaceable, The Oracle of Omaha has cultivated a deep bench of managers that should be able to skillfully tend to the company’s operational and investing needs. At just 16 times last year’s earnings, Berkshire shares remain a highly attractive option amid a generally expensive market.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    This morning, President Trump suggested that the United States is considering strong military action in response to recent chemical attacks carried out on civilians by the Syrian government. The president promised to send “nice and new and ‘smart'” missiles to Syria and accused the Russian government of partnering with a “Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” The president’s remarks are a significant departure from comments made last week, which suggested that the United States would be pulling out of Syria in the coming months. Trump’s threat of war over a recent chemical attack in Syria drove crude oil and gold prices higher. Geopolitical worries often offer a boost to commodity prices due to concerns about supply. Trump’s threat comes at a time that markets are already concerned about a significant military conflict in the Middle East between Saudi Arabia and Iran. WTI crude prices added 0.9% to hit $66.10 per barrel. Brent crude pushed to $71.10 per barrel. Gold price topped $1,350 per ounce and are poised for bigger gains. According to Axios, U.S. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) has privately told friends that he will not seek reelection in the fall. The news comes at a perilous time for Republicans, who are expected to lose the House of Representatives and potentially the Senate. Axios was the first to report the news. The story is also notable because Ryan recently achieved his long-time goal of passing tax reform in late 2017.

On an adjusted (non-GAAP) basis, which excludes items like equity compensation and acquisition costs, net income was $38.3 million, or $0.87 per share — also above guidance for adjusted earnings per share of between $0.73 and $0.79. IoT revenue grew 17% year over year to $103 million. Infrastructure revenue jumped 37% year over year to $49 million. Broadcast revenue declined 3% to $36 million. Access revenue fell 6% to $17 million. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, on April 18, 2018, Silicon Labs closed its $240 million acquisition of Sigma Designs’ (NASDAQ:SIGM) Z-Wave business. Silicon Labs had initially agreed to acquire all of Sigma Designs this past December for $282 million, but amended the deal last quarter to include only its Z-Wave business after certain closing conditions weren’t met. In any case, the purchase significantly expands Silicon Labs’ position in mesh networking for smart homes.

Hot Blue Chip Stocks To Watch For 2018

The major indexes rose to new highs this week as investorsignored the chaos in Washington and refused to let the market fall.

The S&P 500 rose 1.5% this week after advancing 0.2% to 2,351.16 today, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 1.7% this week after ticking up 4.28 points to 20,624.05. The Nasdaq Composite climbed 1.8% this week after today.

There were all sorts of reasons for the market to drop this week: Fed chief Janet Yellen was more hawkish than expected when she testified to Congress this week, while President Donald J. Trump was busy defending himself, rather than proposing business friendly legislation.

But the market refused to take a loss for an answer. Today, for instance, the Dow had been down as much as 87.16 points, before rallying back, while the blue chip benchmark rallied back from a 55.03 decline. In fact, that’s been the pattern all year in the S&P 500, explains the folks at Bespoke Investment Group:

Best Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019

In the future, vehicles will be “shared, electric and automated,” according to a new study from the Institute of Transportation Studies at University of California, Davis. This trend gives an edge to companies currently employing one or more of these features. That list includes Google, Tesla, Uberand General Motors.

A number of experts were surveyed for a new study titled “3 Revolutions: Sharing, Electrification, and Automation.” The majority opinion from “forty policymakers, researchers, and representatives from government, nonprofit organizations and the technology” was that at present, the transportation industry has hit a period of unprecedented innovation.

The primary points of the survey:

Seventy percent of survey participants think fully driverless vehicles will account for more than 20 percent of vehicles sold by 2040. Eighty-eight percent think commercially offered shared rides will make up more than five percent of all U.S. passenger miles by 2030, and 78 percent think commercially offered shared rides will account for more than 20 percent of U.S. passenger miles traveled by 2040. Seventy percent also think that by 2050, the majority of vehicles used commercially for ride and car sharing in the nation will be zero emissions vehicles, including battery, plug-in hybrid, and fuel-cell electric vehicles.

Experts believe that those companies early into one segment of the business or the otheror those that are large and well-funded have an advantage. The world two largest ride sharing services, Lyft and Uber, hold that spot in car sharing. Uber claims it has 40 million active monthly riders worldwide.

    This morning, President Trump suggested that the United States is considering strong military action in response to recent chemical attacks carried out on civilians by the Syrian government. The president promised to send “nice and new and ‘smart'” missiles to Syria and accused the Russian government of partnering with a “Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” The president’s remarks are a significant departure from comments made last week, which suggested that the United States would be pulling out of Syria in the coming months. Trump’s threat of war over a recent chemical attack in Syria drove crude oil and gold prices higher. Geopolitical worries often offer a boost to commodity prices due to concerns about supply. Trump’s threat comes at a time that markets are already concerned about a significant military conflict in the Middle East between Saudi Arabia and Iran. WTI crude prices added 0.9% to hit $66.10 per barrel. Brent crude pushed to $71.10 per barrel. Gold price topped $1,350 per ounce and are poised for bigger gains. According to Axios, U.S. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) has privately told friends that he will not seek reelection in the fall. The news comes at a perilous time for Republicans, who are expected to lose the House of Representatives and potentially the Senate. Axios was the first to report the news.

    The price of Bitcoin surged more than 17% to top $8,000 in a rapid move that surprised many investors this morning. The sudden rally appears to be the result of a short squeeze, according to CNBC contributor Brian Kelly. This means that investors who had been betting on a decline in the price of the world’s largest cryptocurrency had been forced to jump back and buy the currency again. A lot of people have been betting on a decline in the price of Bitcoin heading toward the April 17 tax deadline. The expectation is that many people will need to sell their Bitcoin in order to raise cash to meet tax obligations. Here’s our latest daily insight on why the Bitcoin bear market may end very soon.
    Markets gains have been capped by concerns about the latest news out of the Federal Reserve. On Wednesday, minutes from the Fed’s most recent meeting indicated that policy makers are prepared to raise interest rates several more times in the coming months in order to stave off concerns about inflation.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Invest In 2019: Sigma Designs, Inc.(SIGM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Steve Symington]

    Data source: Silicon Laboratories.

    What happened with Silicon Labs this quarter?
    Revenue was above the high end of guidance provided in late January, which called for a range of $196 million to $202 million. On an adjusted (non-GAAP) basis, which excludes items like equity compensation and acquisition costs, net income was $38.3 million, or $0.87 per share — also above guidance for adjusted earnings per share of between $0.73 and $0.79. IoT revenue grew 17% year over year to $103 million. Infrastructure revenue jumped 37% year over year to $49 million. Broadcast revenue declined 3% to $36 million. Access revenue fell 6% to $17 million. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, on April 18, 2018, Silicon Labs closed its $240 million acquisition of Sigma Designs’ (NASDAQ:SIGM) Z-Wave business. Silicon Labs had initially agreed to acquire all of Sigma Designs this past December for $282 million, but amended the deal last quarter to include only its Z-Wave business after certain closing conditions weren’t met. In any case, the purchase significantly expands Silicon Labs’ position in mesh networking for smart homes.

    What differentiates gaming companies today are the resorts they build and where those resorts are located. Put a megaresort on the desolate north end of the Las Vegas Strip, and you might go bankrupt before it’s completed (see Echelon, Las Vegas Plaza, and Fontainebleau), but if you’re building a multi-billion dollar resort in Macau or Singapore, it’s almost impossible to lose money. No company has better locations than Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS), which is why it’s one of the most profitable companies in gaming. Here’s where the company’s money comes from.

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS) would presumably run into a similar roadblock. It also derives most of its revenues from Macau, and its own concession is coming up for renewal soon, too. Moreover, when Macau gaming regulators created the concessions, there was a lot of controversy over its Solomon-like decision to split in two the concession awarded to Galaxy. The Hong Kong operator was given the primary one, and Las Vegas Sands was awarded a sub-concession that was created out of whole cloth (regulators then went on to create several other sub-concessions from the licenses that were awarded to Wynn and local operator SJM Holdings).

&l;p&g;Pretty much since 1986, businesses have been able to deduct 50 percent of business-related entertainment and meal expenses.&a;nbsp; Furthermore, meals provided by an employer to employees on its premises have been fully deductible.&a;nbsp; In addition, qualified transportation fringe benefits, such as work-related parking costs have been deductible to the employer.&a;nbsp; Much of this is expected to change under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the &a;ldquo;Act&a;rdquo;).

&l;img class=&q;dam-image shutterstock size-large wp-image-781744174&q; src=&q;https://specials-images.forbesimg.com/dam/imageserve/781744174/960×0.jpg?fit=scale&q; data-height=&q;637&q; data-width=&q;960&q;&g; Shutterstock

The Act eliminates deductions for entertainment, amusement, recreation expenses, and membership dues.&a;nbsp; Though meal expenses associated with operating a business, such as meals during employee travel, remain deductible subject to the fifty percent limitation.&a;nbsp; The Act also disallows deductions for qualified transportation fringe benefits.&a;nbsp; The reasoning behind the elimination of these deductions is that businesses will see their tax rates reduced under the Act, so the elimination or reduction of these deductions are only fair.&a;nbsp; In other words, the elimination of these deductions helped pay for the reduction in the business tax rates.
