October can be spooky for investors — here's why experts say not to worry

October has a spooky reputation with investors, but experts say there’s no need to fear the stock market.

This month has sometimes been horrifying, historically: Over the past century, three of the darkest days on Wall Street all happened during October.

“The big one is October 1987, when the Dow plunged 22% in a single day,” says Jason Lambert, the president and CEO of Northwest Financial & Tax Solutions, near Portland, Oregon. That day, now known as “Black Monday,” “was the worst single-day drop, percentage-wise, in history.”

The Great Depression began after a market crash in October 1929 and the financial crisis that sparked the Great Recession started with an October market meltdown in 2008.

There’s another reason October has a bad reputation, says Lambert: “Market volatility, historically, is higher” in October. “Volatility implies fear,” he says, “even if it doesn’t mean that the market is moving up or down.”

Billionaire Warren Buffett has a ‘simple’ test for making tough decisions—here’s how it works

Achieving success and making tough decisions go hand in hand. So what’s the best way to make ethical decisions during tough times?

Billionaire Warren Buffett has a 'simple' test for making tough decisions—here's how it works

Achieving success and making tough decisions go hand in hand. So what’s the best way to make ethical decisions during tough times? That’s a question one student asked Warren Buffett at a 2005 Q&A session with Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. It all comes down to reputation, the billionaire told the audience. Integrity and ethics are essential for building a solid, positive reputation. They also indicate trust and adherence to high moral standards. “We have all the money we need,” Buffett said, referring to himself and Gates. “While we’d like to have more, we can afford to lose money. But we can’t afford to lose reputation. Not a shred.”

The ‘newspaper test’

One would imagine that it’s no easy task managing Berkshire Hathaway’s 360,000 employees and making sure that all managers are making ethical decisions. But Buffett has a smart strategy for this: “I ask the managers to judge every action they take — not just by legal standards, though obviously that’s the first test — but also by what I call the ‘newspaper test.'” If a manager expresses uncertainty, Buffett says he asks them how they “would feel about any given action if they know it was to be written up the next day in their local newspaper.” He tells them that the article would be “written by a smart but pretty unfriendly reporter” and read by their family, friends and neighbors. “It’s pretty simple,” he says. “If [the decision] passes that test, it’s okay. If anything is too close to the lines, it’s out.”

And being the great leader that he is, Buffett says his managers can call him if they want to check on something. “But if they do, there’s probably something wrong with them,” he jokes.

The ‘inner scorecard’

Cramer calls Mark Zuckerberg 'tone-deaf' after the CEO's privacy joke bombs at Facebook's developers conference

Mark Zuckerberg’s joke about Facebook’s privacy scandals during the company’s F8 developer conference didn’t land well, CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Wednesday.

“He’s really tone-deaf. It is rather amazing,” Cramer said on “Squawk on the Street. ”

Zuckerberg, the company’s CEO, on Tuesday referenced Facebook’s several scandals over the past year, at a time when the company is being questioned for its role in distributing users’ data without their permission.

“I know that we don’t exactly have the strongest reputation on privacy right now to put it lightly,” he said, “but I’m committed to doing this well and to starting a new chapter for our products.”

The social media giant is still facing a slew of controversies and remains subject to investigations and fines. Zuckerberg and other top Facebook executives have been called to testify in front of congressional committees, starting when the public learned that Cambridge Analytica exploited Facebook user data to try to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

“This company has not gotten its reputation back,” Cramer, host of “Mad Money, ” said.

CNBC reported in March that agencies around the world are thought to be still looking into Facebook, including the German Federal Cartel Office, Belgian Data Protection Authority, Irish Data Protection Commission, Securities and Exchange Commission and Federal Trade Commission along with other U.S. organizations.

“Holding Mark Zuckerberg and other top Facebook executives personally at fault and liable for further wrongdoing would send a powerful message to business leaders across the country: You will pay a hefty price for skirting the law and deceiving consumers,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said in an April statement.

Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

58% of young workers plan to change jobs this year to get more of this—and it's not compensation

However, Minshew said that the results were the same across the board, in different age groups and other demographics.

The findings are part of a shift that’s happening in the workplace, she pointed out. For instance, today’s labor force is also much more mobile. Of those surveyed, 89% said they would move for the right company or role.

“The factors they’re using to define what is the right company or role, it’s things like the culture, the values, the employee experience. Sometimes the perks and benefits, as well. Sometimes the company’s reputation,” said Minshew, author of “The New Rules of Work.”

In fact, 85% of those surveyed said a company’s reputation is important or very important when they are considering working there. And that doesn’t just include the “prestige” of the company, but what employees are saying about it as well on social media and online review platforms.

“Companies used to be able to control their brand and today there are so many ways that your employees are a part of how your brand is perceived in the market,” she said.

All this is happening in a tight labor market. The unemployment rate is near historic lows and job growth for March came in better than expected. Nonfarm payrolls grew by 196,000 last month, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday. Wage gains increased 0.14% for the month and 3.2% year over year, below expectations.

It all adds up to more job openings than eligible workers to fill them, which gives more power to those seeking jobs. That’s why companies should have a clear message to attract the best millennial talent.

“We’re seeing today’s workforce take a much more nuanced view of where they want to work and then they’re voting with their feet,” Minshew said.

Fearing #MeToo allegations, companies turn to reputation managers

The business of protecting companies from sexual harassment scandals is booming.

Calls to reputation management firm Temin and Company quadrupled in 2018, according to president and CEO Davia Temin.

“Sexual harassment has not been one of our biggest areas of inquiry, up until now,” Temin tells CNBC Make It. But with the rise of the #MeToo movement, companies are finding themselves unprepared and facing huge legal liabilities. Temin’s business helps companies — including more than 15 in the Fortune 500 — find and address internal problems, before they become public.

When a company hires Temin and Company, the firm first conducts an in-depth study into the company’s leadership and corporate culture. Temin zeroes in on how persistent a culture of sexual harassment is at an organization and what the company is doing wrong, then makes recommendations at the governance level, including, in some cases, firing senior people. Many of Temin’s clients are in highly-regulated industries, like pharmaceuticals and finance.

Workplace sexual harassment claims jumped more than 12 percent in fiscal year 2018, according to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC recovered $70 million from companies for victims of sexual harassment in 2018, up from $47.5 million the year before.

“From the beginning of the #MeToo movement to now, I have definitely seen corporate employers and non-profit organizations taking this issue so much more seriously,” Victoria Lipnic, acting chair of the EEOC tells CNBC Make It.

The EEOC offers harassment prevention training, and its trainers are booked up six or seven months out, according to Lipnic. Its staff outline best practices for preventing harassment and tailor recommendations to suit different workplace cultures. Though the organization used to receive case-by-case requests for help, often from employers looking to “check the box” following an expensive settlement, this type of training aimed at really changing corporate culture is new, says Lipnic, who now gets more than 100 emails every day from companies asking for help.

“It is undeniable that people woke up,” said Lipnic. “I certainly hope, as the head of the EEOC, that people stay awake.”

Still, she says, the real impact of the actions firms are taking won’t be clear for five to 10 years. “If this is all a ‘one -and-done’ thing, then I am not sure how much improvement we will have made.”
