You’re about to be immersed in it…

February 5th, 2018

It’s Friday February 2nd just before 3PM. Equity markets have retreated a bit from their highs and as I write this the S&P 500 is down about 3%, the DJIA about 3.5%. It feels worse than that though, the Dow is off over 500 points so far and that is the worse down day in the last 12 months.

It’s probably a healthy retreat: folks need bargains to become buyers – so we are having a sale on aisle nine today. You’re about to hear all about it though. This is news by gosh and golly and you will be reminded several times a day the equity markets are coming to an end.

You know better of course. And you are wise to turn a deaf ear to the news cycle. And to the perma-bears all of which will claim they’ve predicted it all. Become a buyer, from our perspective this is a wonderful buying opportunity.

Our portfolios and strategies reflect overweighted positions in US and International Equities, recently, we’ve added commodities to our holdings. “If the financial press experts were so “expert”, they would be managing portfolios, not selling magazines.” – C.L. Dominguez
