Dear Valued Clients and Friends, We followed the craziest week in the markets in 18 months with a pretty big rebound week – consistent, steady, but meaningful price recovery (at least as of press time). Technical and structural factors in market movement seem to have subsided (though we trust the precedent set will not be […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, No one is going to tolerate me exclusively devoting this week’s Dividend Cafe to stories outside the vein of our recent volatility/panic attack. And yet, that is probably what I should do. After all, we said most of what we could say about the panic earlier in the week. There […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, By far the most encouraging thing to me this week was the couple of down days in the market! Down 175 points Monday and down 360 points Tuesday, it was actually refreshing to be reminded that markets can and do go down. The “percentage” volatility was actually very minimal now that the […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, I am relieved that no client of mine emailed over the weekend or on Monday itself to say, “Oh no! What will the market do about this government shutdown?” While the press did all they could to make it a news event, let alone a market event, the people weren’t […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, This week’s trip to the Dividend Café is one of our longest in quite some time, mostly because I started typing and just didn’t want to stop. There is so much to say about the market we find ourselves in, and I believe you will find this unpacking But we […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, This week brought me down to Washington D.C. for heavy discussion on the policy landscape of 2018 and how it ought to color the 2018 investing landscape (which is the subject of our launch edition of the brand new Advice and Insights Podcast). But politics is not the sole subject of this […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, It has been between 55 and 70 degrees in Newport Beach all week, and yet I find myself in New York City (photo is from out of my NY office window) where they are using terms I have never heard to describe the weather conditions (what is a “snow bomb […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, Welcome to the final Dividend Café of 2017! We trust you and yours had a very Merry Christmas and will bring in the new year with joy, excitement, anticipation, and fun! It has been an incredible year, and though I am so excited to recap the year for […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, It is really nice to be writing about tax reform as it will be, not as it could be, or might be, or would be if they could get the votes, etc. After months and months of wrangling, there is a bomb of growth about to be dropped on the […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, This was a pretty amazing week in the news cycle as we had a big special election, significant movement in conference (where the House and Senate are trying to reconcile their tax bills), and the Fed moved on interest rates. Bitcoin began trading on the futures market. It reached […]
