Dividend Café is the place to come for a caffeinated stroll through our investment brain. We combine weekly ad hoc market perspective with evergreen truths and principles, covering a wide array of topics from macroeconomic to vanilla asset allocation. We want it to be readable for people of all levels of investor sophistication, and, most importantly, want it to be an authentic reflection of what we believe. The regurgitation of other’s investment perspective can be found anywhere. The Dividend Café is our material, for good or for bad.
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, It is a shorter Dividend Cafe this week but I believe they have been running pretty long as of late so maybe it is fair to just call this week’s a “normal length.” I am really hoping that a lot of you are going to be reading your Dividend Cafe […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, This has been a strange week for a nice, positive move in market indices, yet that is what has happened (at least as of press time). Airplane safety fears, college admission scandals, and never-ending announcements of Democrat candidates for the next Presidential race all dominated the news, yet markets advanced […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, Markets have cooled off this week (finally), not with any meaningful sell-off, but with a slow drip of barely negative days each day. We are in that stretch of time where one quarter’s earnings season is behind us, the next quarter is not complete, the Fed has moved to the […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, I always fear my ability to jinx things when I type what I am about to type, but as of press time, it really has been a very low volatility week in the markets. Now, with time remaining here in the week we never know what will end up, but […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, We appear to be set for another positive week in the markets, though I type this in advance of how the end of the week will end up. The modest increases of this week, combined with nine consecutive weeks of price increase prior certainly create a feeling that we may […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, This week’s Dividend Café comes from New York City where snow has been dropping and capital markets are in the air. People ask me a lot why I love New York City so much, and I remind them that outside my family, my two favorite things on earth are capital […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, We entered the second month of 2019 this week and as of press time have continued the upward trend. There hasn’t been anything dramatic in markets this week and both upside and downside volatility has really subsided (for now). I use this week’s Dividend Cafe to provide a summary of […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, I am old enough to remember when the Dow was below 22,000 and headed towards 21,000. That was a month ago, the day after Christmas. This week, it passed 25,000. Volatility is a two-way street, and it would appear those who have a strong aversion to volatility like it when […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, It was a short week in the markets with the MLK Day holiday on Monday, yet the news cycle and pick-up of earnings season helped make it feel like a full week. The substantial move higher in markets so far this month has not yet been interrupted, as a 300-point […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, As I type the market is up a bit on the week, but we still have the end of the week to go. Really, things seem to have settled down a bit. I do not have any read on earnings season yet as only a few companies, mostly in the financial […]
