Back on Track

A squall blew through, created a little damage, but then the sun came out and the market got right back on track.  In a few days the stock market recovered a lot of what it had lost.  Oil, the catalyst for the sell-off, began to stabilize and the Federal Reserve indicated that it would remain […]

A Sudden Squall

Squalls come up quickly, do their damage and then dissipate. In the stock market, we just had one blow through; it was an oil price shock.  In this case it was all about a collapse in prices rather than an increase.  Why would this be a shock?  Lower prices should be good for far more […]

A New Elephant in the Room

And the elephant is Republican red. What does this mean for investors? Usually politics has much less to do with economics than most think, but there are some influences.  With Republicans now controlling Congress, we can anticipate that business regulation has probably reached a high point for this cycle.  There now will be concerted efforts […]

Happy Days are Here Again

The public should be excused from believing that investors are a schizophrenic bunch. A few weeks ago investors had more worries than could be counted and now they are back buying, pushing stock prices up to new highs.  What changed?  Not much, it’s just that the worries were over-blown and the U.S. economy is proving […]
