Dear Valued Clients and Friends, The last full market week before Thanksgiving gave plenty to be thankful for, even if one doesn’t like market volatility. On one hand, we got a little volatility (meaning, a real little), and we are always thankful when markets act like, well, markets. On the other hand, we are closer to […]
The Dividend Café
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, Does it feel like one year ago that the most shocking election of our lifetimes took place? Most people will always remember where they were the night of the election 2016. That a whole year has gone by is surprising on two levels for me – because, on one hand, it […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, As we delve into the last two months of the calendar year, absorb the atrocity in New York this week (see my concluding paragraph), process the announcement of the new Fed Chair, and take in the good and bad of the House tax plan, be prepared for a really full […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, The idea of earnings season driving stock prices was on full display this week, as positive results from just a few companies were enough to push markets up triple digits one day, and negative results from just a couple companies were enough to push markets down triple digits another day. […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, This is one of my favorite Dividend Café editions in quite some time, just simply because of the number of charts used to reinforce or illustrate various points, and because of the diversity of topics covered (you’ll see what I mean). I have fessed up before that even I have […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, Third quarter earnings results will begin to pour in today, and the heavy release of earnings results will continue for the next three weeks. Earnings season should mean less to long-term investors than it does traders, primarily because there should rarely be something in a quarterly announcement that “surprises” or […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, It may seem like this week’s Dividend Café is a little shorter than normal, simply because we are in the midst of marathon meeting days with money managers, hedge funds, portfolio strategists, and analysts here in New York City. But, we think this issue still packs quite a punch, so […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, Q3 of 2017 comes to an end this week, and just in the nick of time, the Trump administration released their tax plan details. By “details,” I mean we got nine pages instead of a half-page. I spend a lot of time in the podcast, video, and written commentary unpacking […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, If I were to think back to much of the focus of the last eight years in capital markets, through three rounds of quantitative easing in the United States, through the creation of terms I never thought would become common vernacular (“Operation Twist”, anyone?), and certainly through the exhausting discussions […]
Dear Valued Clients and Friends, It appears at press time that we haven’t had any dramatic news events to report this week since the onslaught of Hurricane Irma. For the most part, there was light political toxicity. No North Korea muscle-flexing. No crazy tweets (that’s kind of relative, but you get my point). No major […]
