Good morning everyone, welcome to a new day and a new week.  Hopefully you had a great weekend celebrating mothers day!   As you can imagine, our normal Sunday event of biking or hiking got sidelined this week.  When I asked the wife what she'd most like to do on her Mother's day, she replied "I've still got a handful of gift cards from Christmas I'd like to use."  So, I played chauffeur for the day. We hit the mall, we hit Bed Bath and Beyond, we hit Macy's, we hit Kohls.... and she had a pretty good day of Mom shopping. Good for her.  What ever was highest on your list...I hope your kids/spouse made your day wonderful!

Insurance
 
There’s some things that I know well enough to be considered in the class of expert. There’s some things that I know less about than your average 5 year old. We’re all similar in that.  There’s things you know so well you take for granted doing it, or teaching it, and other things that confound and confuse you.
 
This entire “healthcare/insurance” thing is one that completely and honestly boggles my mind.  For instance, let me  use this as an example....

Good morning everyone, welcome to Thursday. 

So yesterday the market was hugging the flat line for most of the day, and then late in the session oil puked, and fell by the most in over a year. That got everyone's attention and they scrambled to take some stock off the table. This morning oil is again a bit weak. So we've got WTI at 49.07.

Good morning all!  HEY YOU GUYS.... do not forget it is Valentine's day!  If you have a significant other, by all means make him/her happy with a small token of how much you appreciate them!

Morning all, welcome to a new day. 

Well, did you see it? The once very common late day magic levitation has returned! Yesterday the market was bouncing around at the low end of its range, mostly between say DOW + 40 and DOW + 65 points. Then exactly at 3:30 it hit. From 3:30 right into the close, everything just magically went higher.  The S&P gained a full 10 points in just 30 minutes. The DOW was pushing 70.  What was that all about?

Good morning folks, welcome to 2017.  I figure it will be sometime in maybe February before I stop writing 2016 on things.

Fearful Predictions 2017

 
Every year I make a fool of myself, by trying to predict what the upcoming year will bring.  But in my defense, I will say that after doing this for over 20 years, I have had quite a few years where things worked out almost exactly as I thought. This year will not be one of them. Why? Too many variables.

Good morning all, we've made it to hump day. 

If you've flipped on your monitors or TV's you see the futures are up fairly strongly this morning. After everyone had lost hope about a deal in oil land, it appears that the Saudi's have flinched to some extent and a small production cut is now being acknowledged.  That was enough to jam oil up over 3 bucks, and that of course took stocks with it.

Hello everyone, welcome back from what I hope was a long and wonderful weekend. After enjoying the Thanksgiving Holiday, the wife and I did some fun "poking around" the west coast of Florida, taking in the scenery. Florida is indeed a beautiful state if you like the water. There's so many miles of mangroves and islands, and rivers and bays. It's really gorgeous. Oh and speaking of gorgeous, right now we are experiencing exactly why so many people come here for the winter. Yesterday we did our bike ride and it was bright sunny, not a cloud in the sky, 79ish... just perfect.  Cooler nights and perfect days is what put the west coast of Florida on the map from Nov - March

Hillary Wins???
 
NOTE>> I wrote the following Commentary on Friday morning, knowing I was going to be traveling this weekend.  Since then things have already moved forward, Stein did go ahead and raise the money to recount Wisconsin and it’s looking like they will push for PA and MI too.
 
When Trump won the election, my very first statement was “this isn’t over”.  For those of you with portfolio’s, you might want to pay attention to this article. Why? Because as I said...the globalist plans that were in place on Monday November 7th, didn’t go away Tuesday Nov. 8th.
