Dear Valued Friends and Clients, As hard as it may be to focus on anything other than political drama and the China trade war, we actually have an earnings season starting next week. Listen in or watch as our Investment Committee dives into all our expectations and thoughts of the earnings season that is about […]
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, The markets reached all-time highs this week, finally transcending previous levels set well over a year ago. In fact, it set a new all-time high every single closing day of the week from Monday to Thursday. No shortage of questions remains about the next sequence of events to expect in […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, It’s interesting to see how much the traffic for this weekly commentary picks up in periods of market distress, and how much it drops when things are moving in a more favorable direction.
