Stocks Alert: T. Rowe Price Group Inc (NASDAQ:TROW), Momo Inc (ADR) (NASDAQ:MOMO)

On Thursday, Shares of T. Rowe Price Group Inc (NASDAQ:TROW), added 2.84% and closed at $70.29 in the last trading session. The last trading range of the stock ranges between $68.35 and $74.18. T. Rowe Price’s Parents, Kids & Money Survey, which sampled more than 1,000 parents and their 8 to 14 year old kids in February 2016, revealed that many parents are willing to overextend their finances to fulfill their kids’ holiday wish lists. And 25% of parents have either taken from their 401(k)s or their emergency funds or taken a payday loan to cover holiday spending.

Marty Allenbaugh, a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ at T. Rowe Price, says, “No one wants to be a Scrooge. Between our inclination to be generous during the holiday season and the blockbuster retail deals, playing Santa can be kryptonite for even the savviest budgeters. But splurging a little shouldn’t turn into indulgence at the expense of financial well-being. Retirement accounts are meant to fund retirement. Emergency funds are meant to fund emergencies. Payday loans should be the last of last resorts. Nothing that comes wrapped in a ribbon is worth the consequence of bending these rules.”

As an example of the potential long-term impact of pulling from retirement savings, a 35 year old taking a distribution from her 401(k) to cover $500 in holiday spending could be sacrificing nearly $6,000 at retirement.
