Dear Valued Clients and Friends, It was not an especially significant week in the stock market, but it was quite an eventful week in the oil markets. We spend a lot of time in this week’s video addressing that subject. And in our written Dividend Café we not only cover the right posture to take towards […]
The Dividend Café
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, Some modest downside volatility came to markets Thursday, but the real news story of the week was the simply unfathomable attack in our nation’s capital city (where I happen to be right now at a speaking engagement). The fact that the attack did not turn into something much worse is […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, This week we delve into some key historical lessons in the Dividend Café, and attempt to extract from those lessons some real practical guidance for the present. There are so many things of interest to investors moving so incredibly fast, that it is really important to us to touch upon […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, Memorial Day led to a shortened market week this week, but it didn’t lead to a shortened Dividend Café. There are a lot of charts below, but a very clear, succinct, powerful message around the permanent value of dividend growth investing. This is one of my favorite issues of Dividend […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, We are purposely sending this week’s Dividend Café a tad early, because we know the Memorial Day weekend lies ahead, and that by Friday some of you may already be checked out for a long and deserved weekend that doesn’t include reflections on bond spreads, fiscal policy, and earnings reports. Perhaps […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, I am sending this week’s Dividend Café from the annual SALT Hedge Fund Conference here in Las Vegas, where I have been blown away by some incredible speakers, discussions, and panels over the last couple of days. I am still organizing my thoughts but it has been an enlightening event […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, Even the firing of the FBI Director by the President of the United States didn’t seem to warrant higher market volatility this week. We got a little check back unrelated to that near end of week but flat as can be otherwise. We remain in a period of very low market drama, […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, The month of May has launched with some further absorption of company earnings results, a House vote to repeal and replace ObamaCare, and a Federal Reserve market committee meeting. So you would think the market would have had more of a reaction to the heavy news cycle. It has […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, And just like that the bull was back … A ferocious 450-point two-day rally to kick off the week re-engaged investor appetite for risk, and left many wondering if the good old days of, ummmm, February, were back. The fiscal policy side of the Trump administration’s intentions are becoming clearer. […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, This week some fun volatility came back into markets, volatility that we have been forecasting would become normal again. The Thursday market rally appears largely driven by a resurgence of hope from the Trump administration about their legislative agenda, but as we explain in this week’s Dividend Cafe, there may […]
