The 2017 “Best Of” Issue

December 27, 2017

It’s difficult to believe, but 2017 is nearly over. And while it’s been a banner year for the financial markets that was capped off by the first real tax reform in more than three decades, it’s also been a banner year for me and this publication. In fact, I took over the helm of the […]

The Illuminating Irony of Place, Time and Tax Cuts

December 20, 2017

Sometimes, the confluence of place, time and global events leaves one with a sense of irony that illuminates the soul. That’s what a friend and I reflected on last Friday morning while drinking coffee just steps away from the U.S. Capitol. I happened to be in our nation’s capital last week, and the irony of […]

How to Invest at 168 MPH

December 13, 2017

Some people play golf. Some people play tennis. And while I certainly understand the appeal of these great activities, I prefer to engage in recreational activities that are, shall we say, a little more extreme. Another way to describe my proclivities is the way many of my friends and family do, and that is to […]

Doing the Tax Cut Valuation Math

December 6, 2017

Those much-anticipated tax cuts appear as though they soon may become a reality. That’s very good news for markets, as the gain in the equity markets over the past 12-plus months have largely been built on tax reform — particularly corporate tax cuts — becoming the law of the land. Yet assuming tax cuts do […]

Is This Market Really Overvalued?

November 29, 2017

The stock market is on fire. On Tuesday, stocks surged about 1% nearly across the board, with the Dow, S&P 500 and Russell 2000 indices each vaulting to yet another respective all-time high. Given the relentless race to all-time highs we’ve seen this year, it’s more than logical to ask ourselves if the market is overvalued. Well, […]

Selling into the Messy Tax Cut Process

November 15, 2017

Stocks have seen losses over the past week, and there’s basically one reason why — the machinations on tax reform.   Traders, individual investors and professional money managers mostly have profited mightily over the past year, as the Trump pro-growth trade gave the bulls hope that regulation would be reduced (i.e. Obamacare repeal and replace), […]

The Year of Living Dangerously

November 9, 2017

It was one year ago today when America elected Donald J. Trump to be its 45th president. The incredibly unlikely ascent of the billionaire businessman to the highest office in the land defied the odds, stunned the world and rewrote the book on political propriety. The Trump victory also has brought about something that few […]

November 1, 2017

For much of the past two months, the equity market has been engaged in a bout of flirtation with what I’ve called the “reflation trade.” During reflationary periods, bond yields rise as they reflect investor expectations for future economic growth and inflation. Also during reflation, we tend to see market sectors linked to economic growth, […]

The Tax Plan Favors the Rich, Because That’s Who Pays

October 25, 2017

In a recent New York Times column, “The G.O.P. Is No Party for Honest Men,” Keynesian warrior and Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman starts out by admitting he is confounded that only 60 percent of Americans in a recent poll think that the tax plan favors the rich. According to Krugman, “It’s shocking that as […]
