My mother kept a daily diary during most of her adult years.  I only found out in January, when my sister gave me her diary from 1989, 30 years ago.  Back then, Toy’s R Us, Radio Shack and Sears were stores we visited often, and were thriving.  There was no such thing...

I’d like to discuss a topic that many tell me I should stay away from, economic politics.  I have great clients.  There’s not a single one that I don’t like.  And everyone has their own opinion regarding President Trump.  I’m not here to argue the pros or cons of his p...

Market and Performance Update – “The Stock Market has fallen 800 points!  Does that point to a Recession?”  “The Yield Curve has Inverted… a sure sign of Recession!”  Do headlines like these cause you to be concerned about your investments?  They probably do… and they...
