Seeking Extreme Income in a Rising Rate Market

September 25, 2023

As far as the Fed is concerned, interest rates will be higher for considerably longer than both the stock and bond markets were banking on.

Mountains of Debt Need to Be Addressed

September 18, 2023

Not much has changed in the past month to convince the markets that the Fed is completely done with the business of raising rates. This past week’s inflation and retail sales data, chip-sector theatrics and a host of industry conferences did little to change that. In fact, all it did was to raise the level […]

Stocks Are Set up For a Quarter’s End Window-Dressing Rally 

September 11, 2023

These past five weeks have been characterized as a normal period of consolidation following a strong reversal of the narrative during the last week of August.

August 21, 2023

Back in 1989, Japan was in focus and the target of a high level of criticism, as wealthy Japanese investment pools, corporations and individuals were buying up American trophy properties at sky high-prices, including the Rockefeller Center in Manhattan, the Westin Hotel chain and the Pebble Beach golf resort. Mitsubishi Estate Co. paid the Rockefeller […]

Lower Inflation Will Lead to a Much Higher Market

August 14, 2023

This past week’s inflation data came in as forecast with a few components still showing some stubbornness to come down, but the big picture that investors should embrace is that inflation is, indeed, trending lower. It would not surprise me to see the core annual Consumer Price Index (CPI) rate drop into the 3% range […]

The Road Ahead for Rates Looks Flat for Longer

August 7, 2023

July 31, 2023

Rising interest rates, commercial real estate losses and increased regulatory scrutiny were the buzz phrases facing the regional bank sector in late May and early June following the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank, Silvergate Bank, Signature Bank and First Republic (FRC).
