Good Evening, Well I’m back. I bet you hardly missed me. I had some really challenging internet coverage to say the least at some of the places I was staying, but I managed to keep up somewhat with what was going on…… I found myself wishing that I had not been able to view the trading at all as the action tended to be nauseating! The market continued to be without clear leadership and when you added other news related ...

Encouraging Signals Outweigh Realistic Concerns

You may ask, “Okay. I know what the investment world has produced over the last 20 or so years but what does the future hold for me?” You remember 2000, ‘01 and ’02 and how the market roared back stronger until 2008 came along. The market has grown like gang busters since 2008. Of course, we cannot forget last spring, due to Covid19 closures and its dramatic recovery. Now, what can we expect?

Regardless of a few ...

My TSP Guide:

Good morning mytspguide.com subscribers. My name is Todd Dudley, Financial Adviser with Raymond James Financial Services.

As Scott has shared with many of you, I am willing to assist you with any questions you ...

Good Evening, Wow, it doesn’t seem like a week since I wrote the last blog it seems more like a month. This market has absolutely been though the gauntlet of different types of action. One day recovery stocks are leading, one day tech is leading, the next day we’re selling off because the White House wants to raise the capital gains tax, the next day stocks recover because it’s no big deal, the next day tech leads the market back ...

Good Evening, The market so far this year will try your patience. The major indices seem OK, but the action underneath is choppy. Most savvy investors move their money around to the stocks and funds in the hot sectors and are able to outperform the market as a whole by using this tactic. So far in 2021 that has not been the case. The sector rotation has been volatile moving from tech to value to safe havens such as real ...

Good Evening, The overall dynamics of the market has not changed it’s still swinging from recovery stocks to tech and back on a daily to weekly basis. What’s good one day doesn’t work the next and visa versa. It has been very hard to make any substantial headway. The market feels more like it’s moving sideways  than it does like it’s in the midst of a bull run. It’s true that the major indices are setting new records but the ...

Good Evening, The market these days is clearly bifurcated with different leadership on different days. One day it will be stocks moving higher that are expected to be favored by the economic recovery such as consumer cyclicals. The next day those sectors will be down and the technology stocks that led last years comeback will be moving higher again. About every third or fourth business day both the tech and recovery plays will rally. The market seems confused and that ...

Good Evening, Before I get started on this crazy market tonight I wanted to take time to introduce you to a good friend of mine who I work closely with and have come to trust over the years. For some of you this will be a reintroduction because he helps many folks in our group before, during, and after retirement. As most of you already know I am not nor do I want to be a certified financial advisor. I ...

Good Evening, First let me say that I get a lot, I mean a lot of messages when the market sells off. I do my best to answer them all but I’m sure that sometimes a few of them fall through the cracks. So please accept my apology if I missed you!

Last fall we talked about the implications of a new administration in the White House and how it might effect the market. I hate to even mention it again ...

Good Evening, I could write a book about what’s going on right now, but I don’t think I’ll do that. Sometimes the simple approach is the best approach. Say what you’ve got to say and get it over with……  Well here it is. Tomorrow is if not the most important then one of the most important market days this year. The March Fed meeting concludes and they will make a statement concerning current monetary policy following the close of the ...
