Dear Valued Clients and Friends, Greetings from the financial capital of the world that is New York City where I have officially begun my annual “due diligence” week, and where another week in the markets deserves comprehensive analysis. We focus our efforts this week on what was done and not done in the “pre-written, phase […]
Dear Valued Friends and Clients, Few topics seem to be more front and center these days for investors than how the 2020 election may impact their portfolios. In fact, the new “impeachment inquiry” from the House accelerates some of those questions (and for many investors, concerns). But what does history tell us about political ramifications […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, Despite the shortened market week, we got another display of market uncertainty and persistent volatility this week (though lately the upside volatility has outweighed the downside volatility). We use this week’s Dividend Cafe to really jump around the horn and give you a succinct but well-packed punch in the state […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, The trade war did not end this shortened market week, and therefore, the market volatility did not let up. The collateral damage from the trade war in the real economy – that which transcends the mere up and down movement of stock prices – is the subject of this week’s […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, This week’s Dividend Cafe was prepared a bit earlier in the week than normal because of the Good Friday holiday this week. We purposely sent this week’s Dividend Cafe on Thursday because of the market being closed Friday, and to give you a chance to read and absorb it before […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, A strong start to Q2 following up on what was one of the strongest Q1’s in history … The markets are responding to a healthy economy and a healthy earnings environment, and it sort of makes you wonder why if things are so good, the Fed has to pause? That […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, By the time you are reading this, the first quarter of 2019 has come to an end, and what a quarter it has been. Markets moved up and down this week, and I don’t have a great feel for how the market will end net-net on the week, but it […]
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, At press time markets were up a bit on the week, but nothing constructive after last week’s downside, and “at press time” could be ancient history by the time you are reading this. Interestingly, this week would appear to be quite non-volatile as the up and down movements day by […]
