    “Fast is fine but accuracy is everything” — Wyatt Earp Dear Clients and Friends, Are you kidding me! The 10 year Treasury bond at a 1.98% yield? Oil down to $81.00 per barrel? The stock market down 1000 points in one week? Are we no longer going to travel or eat out because of the fear of contracting Ebola? Are we all going to start riding bicycles instead of driving cars? The price of oil is telling us that the global demand for crude has all but disappeared. Global stock markets are saying that we are entering a period of deflation and recession. Are you kidding me? What we are witnessing is a full blown panic, once again touched off by some hedge funds who were caught leaning the wrong way. These funds are run by “really smart” guys who bet heavily that interest rates would rise this year and Read more...

    “You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.”  —  Henry Ford Dear Clients and Friends, Bret Jensen: “The market action right now reminds me of my days as a professional poker player in Las Vegas and how the nature of the game can change both quickly and substantially. I remember games that contained nothing but tourists. Pickings were easy, and it was hard not to make money even when not bringing my “A” game. However, when the tourists left and some of the local pros took their place, the game changed drastically. One had to tighten up, play fewer hands and even walk away from the table if the game proved too tough.” I really dislike the month of October from a financial markets perspective. It makes me not appreciate the fall colors as much. These past several weeks have been really rough on equity prices. Read more...

    “I think the only reason I’ve had the career life I’ve had is that someone told me some secrets early on about living. You can do very best when you are relaxed, no matter what is or what your job is, the more relaxed you are the better you are. That’s sort of why I got into acting. I realized that the more fun I had, the better I did it. I thought, that’s a job I could be proud of. It’s changed my life learning that and it’s made me better at what I do.”  —- Bill Murray (actor and comedian) Dear Clients and Friends, Let’s look at what we are dealing with today:  Vladimir Putin acting like he wants to invade eastern Ukraine, the rise and rapid spread of the radical Muslim terrorist group ISIS, the spreading Ebola virus in western Africa, solar flares that threaten to knock Read more...

    “You can’t build a reputation on what you’re going to do” — Henry Ford Dear Clients and Friends, Most of Europe is on vacation for the month of August. The President is on Martha’s Vineyard for vacation. Many from Wall Street are either in the Hamptons or at the Jersey shore for vacation and…..the worst record in Major League Baseball again belongs to the Colorado Rockies. Such are the dwindling days of summer and the slower pace now gives me time to organize thoughts and make some observations. 1.)     The DJIA is off -4.4% from its high (and still negative for the year). The S&P is off -4.2% from its high and the NASDAQ is off -3.8% from its high. Is this consolidation/correction over? 2.)     My guess is probably yes since the percentage of bulls to bears is now below 50% (46% to be exact and that is down from Read more...
