Around this time of year, we are predictably bombarded with year-end reviews of all shapes and sizes.  You know, “The Top Stories of 2019” or “The Top Plays of 2019”.  These dominate the airwaves during the holidays and certainly help run out the clock entering the new year.  This year obviously, we were not only treated the “Best of’s” for the year, but...

Investors expected this cut to happen and the stock market responded favorably, continuing to move higher from June and into July.  However, post this historic cut in rates, Fed Chairman Powell alluded to no further cuts being needed for the foreseeable futur...

There is a very popular on Wall Street that has been around for over a century:  “Sell in May, go away.”  To many, this has been a tried and true measure; it is even been a lesson bestowed upon readers in the book Reminiscences of a Stock Operator.  While this adage made sense to traders at the time, their reasoning was entirely different from today’s cli...
