Good Evening, It was so many blogs ago when we discussed future action like we had today that I can’t even remember for sure when it was. I would have to look in the archives to find that. You can do so if you want….My point by saying this is not that I called it. It was as plain as the nose on the end of your face. We all knew it was going to happen. You certainly didn’t need ...

Good Evening, We’ve always said don’t fight the Fed referring to the Federal Reserve. However, don’t fight the Fed has taken on a new meaning with the current administration. The Trump administration views the market as a report card and they intend to keep it moving in a positive direction no matter what it takes. Like them or not, they are pro market! In several recent blogs we discussed how certain news which especially includes COVID 19 news would instill ...

Good Evening, I will try to keep in brief. Things have been hectic around here and it is now pretty late. The market took a day off today. It’s pretty news driven these days. That is to say Corona Virus and Economic news driven. Today there were some conflicting reports released that left the market confused and if there is one thing the market dislikes it is uncertainty. The World Health Organization reported that Asymptomatic spread of COVID 19 is ...

Good Evening, The battle continues. You have Covid 19, Tensions with China, and rioting in major US cities vs the overwhelming optimism investors have for the US economy reopening. You have to wonder just how far optimism will take us. I believe that our economy is still able to do great things but you’ve got to admit the odds are stacking up against it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still betting on the economy. However, there remain some landmines out ...

Good Evening, It’s time to adjust our allocation. The new allocation is 100/S. Please remember that this is the percentage of money that we have invested in each fund, not the money that is taken from your check and deposited into thrift. That deposit should always be 100% G Fund. That automatically protects your deposit in the event that it is made on a bad day for the market. The funds that ...

Good Evening, It’s seems like a month has passed instead of just a week since the last blog. That just illustrates how fast the market is shifting these days. Today there was a change in leadership as the Dow and S&P 500 rallied. Throughout the pandemic stocks have pretty well fallen into two groups. Those that I have named stay at home stocks and those that I have named recovery stocks. Stay at home stocks are mostly but not entirely ...

Good Evening, I have the feeling that I have become redundant. It’s hard not to when the market does the same thing over and over again. Rinse and repeat! Recently on more than one occasion we discussed how various Covid 19 related news topics would cause the market to swing one way and then the other. We talked about the fact that we are stuck in a trading range on the S&P 500 between 2910 and 2630 and would likely ...

Good Evening, I’m pretty sure the sky is falling…..Seriously folks, we talked about this. I believe in last weeks blog. Go check it our because it still applies in triplicate this week! Today the market tanked in the afternoon session after investors (or should I call them day traders) panicked after Dr. Anthony Fauci testified before congress that there could be outbreaks that might not be controllable if restrictions are eased too rapidly. Really? Is there anybody reading this blog ...

Good Evening, Stocks rose again today on optimism from several states starting to open up their economies. The market was also buoyed by another day of rising oil prices on positive sentiments by investors that drivers in several states that are reopening their economies will take to the roads in a big way. I must add that I share that sentiment!  This week started off on  positive note after some selling late last week which leaves us in an established ...
