MONTHLY MARKET COMMENTARIES

Here We Go Again

In addition to the beginning of second quarter earnings, markets were tuned into the Fed for any hint of what it might do at the end of the month, economic data including second quarter GDP gave investors more information on the health of the economy, and the appointment of Boris Johnson to Prime Minister of the United Kingdom brought questions about the future of Brexit.

Time To Celebrate?

A quick look at the move in the markets for June would not be enough to reveal all of the headlines investors have had to digest.

How Low Will They Go?

There is an old saying on Wall Street: “sell in May and go away.” This would have been one of the years that such advice would have worked very well. All three major indices suffered losses for the month, and it didn’t help if you were diversified into international markets, as the vast majority of […]

How Much is it Worth?

What do the S&P 500, the Nasdaq, Russell Wilson (quarterback of the Seahawks), and Dabo Swinney (Clemson football coach) all have in common? If you guessed that they all set records during the month of April, you are correct. It took almost seven months for the S&P 500 and six months for the Nasdaq to […]

Where Do We Go From Here?

March Madness took on a whole new meaning in the world of Wall Street and for one lucky person in Wisconsin, the sole winner of the record setting $768 million Power Ball lottery. Many of us think of the month of March and automatically think of basketball. For corporate America it means billions of dollars […]

Three Thousand Six Hundred and Forty-Three

For those of you that like statistics, 3,643 is the number of days this current bull market has been alive. With the 10- year anniversary on March 9th this year, I thought now would be a good time to gain some perspective on recent months in the markets. The S&P 500 closed at 676 on […]

A New Chapter

All in one month we rang in the new year, lived through the longest government shutdown in history, got news that the Federal Reserve was ready to pause on raising rates, received fourth quarter earnings data, felt the wrath of mother nature with record setting low temperatures, and had the best start to the year […]

A Tumultuous Finish

After the wild ride that December turned out to be, investors were exhausted and ready to close the books on 2018. When it was all over, it was difficult to remember all the record setting statistics that we enjoyed earlier on in the year. It seems hard to believe after the worst December since 1931, […]

The Glass is Half Full?

It seems hard to believe that we are beginning the last month of the year. November did not disappoint if you were looking for some action in the markets. As earnings wound down for the quarter, traders had many other things to focus on for the month. Talk of climate change made the way again […]

A VIX-ious October

Halloween came early to Wall Street, bringing with it unsettling and sometimes scary moves. It took just a few trading days to erase the long road to new highs that were reached just a few weeks ago. Living up to its reputation as one of the most volatile months of the year, traders didn’t have […]
