Dear Valued Clients and Friends, With the trade war still front and center in the global economy, earning season three weeks away, and continued questions about the Fed’s plans floating around, why did all market conversations seem to slip into the background this week? Oh yes, the perpetual reality show that is Washington D.C. took […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, Some weeks are filled with little news but lots of market volatility, and then there are weeks like this one, where there actually was very little market volatility, but a lot of news. In this week’s Dividend Cafe, we dive into what will be some of the biggest news events of the […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, I realize after USC’s win over Stanford last weekend a lot of you paid no attention to markets at all this week, instead opting to just celebrate 24 hours per day all week long. But some of us had to go to work, and this week of work presented a […]
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 bulk of the first half of this week’s Dividend Cafe is dedicated to that which is most relevant to the markets right here and right now – the latest, the greatest, and all that is fit to print. Trade war, interest rates, the yield curve – I promise you […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, And just like that, 2019 is half-way over. Next week will give me the ability to more exhaustively evaluate what 2019 has had to offer so far (hint: it’s all positive for investors) and to look into the second half of the year and what may make sense as we […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, I think there is a chance this is the most “economic” I have ever gotten in the Dividend Cafe, and that is probably not a great hook to get you to keep reading. But actually, the unpacking of truly pivotal economic understandings in this week’s Dividend Cafe just happened – […]
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, I give myself very good advice. But I very seldom follow it. Will I ever learn to do the things I should? So goes the Kathryn Beaumont hit from 1951, Very Good Advice, in the classic Disney masterpiece, Alice in Wonderland. Why am I starting this week’s Dividend Cafe with a quote from Alice in […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, The month of April ended in positive territory, extending the market’s monthly winning streak to four months, and prompting all sorts of additional media discussion of what will come next and how long it will last and so forth and so on. I believe you will find this week’s Dividend […]
