Good morning everyone, we've made it to another Friday and one that I'm personally looking forward to. 

As I've mentioned all week, the wife and I will be celebrating our 36th wedding anniversary by heading out of town for a few days, so I'll be out of here by noon today.

Good morning all, welcome to Thursday.  Oh, and thank you all to those who wrote in saying "happy anniversary!"  I do appreciate it. 

Okay, so what's happening this fine morning? Well...

The most common description of a portfolio, is a bunch of investments designed to bring you a profit. But I argue that investments don't  always have to be for profit, they can be for material return. 

What I'm getting at, is that when things are fine, and all is well, then buying stocks and bonds and CD's etc, are an excellent way to grow your wealth. But, when times are bizarre as they are becoming daily, maybe some investment in "things" starts to make sense. We see what's happening in Venezuela, and we see people hunting for food in dumpsters. Those people would much rather have a fridge full of food, than a bank account. 

Consider "investing' in things that can get you through a tough time. That's a worthwhile portfolio. 

 

We also talk about the market of course. The S&P is edging ever closer to that 2800 level, an area that has served as stubborn resistance in the past. Will it get through and challenge the all time highs?

What’s a Portfolio?
 
The dictionary defines a portfolio two ways:
noun
1.a large, thin, flat case for loose sheets of paper such as drawings or maps.
2. a range of investments held by a person or organization.
 
As you might imagine, when we’re talking about portfolio, we’re generally speaking about “investments.” But let me ask you this, what is an investment?
Again, let’s look:

Morning all, welcome to "hump" day. 

The bigger headlines of the morning seem to circle around the China/US trade talks. Trump mentioned that there's nothing Magical about the so called deadline and if more time is needed, well then more time is needed.

Good morning all, welcome to the first trading day of the week. Naturally I hope your extended weekend ( If you actually had one) was fantastic.  

Down here in FL, mother nature put on another one of her shows, with clear blue sky and temps in the low 80's. This is why FL is still the fastest growing state, people up north are increasingly tired of the snow, ice and sub 0 temps.

Hello everyone, another Friday has rolled right up on us. 

Maybe it just seems like they're coming faster than ever, because each day there's so much you can spend your time looking at.

Happy Valentines Day everyone.  I hope that you all got something special from your significant other! 

I woke up to a wonderful bag of my favorite dark chocolate and a funny card. She woke up to an equally funny card, and an Orchid. Yeah, I know it's supposed to be roses, etc, but Orchids are so beautiful and if treated well can last for years. She loves them.

Hi all, in today's financial Intelligence letter, we discuss how the "plunge protection patrol" uses the futures market to influence the S&P, which of course inflates the SPY.  Many people never believed such a "group" was real, but indeed the "presidents working group on financial markets" was instituted during the Reagan years, and has taken on a much more dominant role. 

Did you ever notice the big "saves" they make when the market is looking like it's going to roll over and die? who do you think is behind that? Yes folks that's our PPT, and Steve Mnuchen met with them during the horrendous December sell off. Coincidence that we've run for 8 weeks after that? Not on your life. 

So give it a read and you'll understand how it all works.

Wag the Dog

 

First off a note that should make you all pretty happy. This letter will be much shorter than my usual rants. Evidently I hurt my wrist pretty bad Sunday, and had to go to the urgent care on Tuesday to get it looked at. I’m pretty resistant to pain, but this became unbearable.   So, I’m in a soft wrap cast, and typing is, well, frustrating. ( and painful)
