Last quote by Scott Wren

There are a lot of reasons for the market to be tired right now… Valuations are stretched, the Fed's in a rate hike cycle, gross margins are starting to be squeezed.

We're going to see a bit of a fade here. Certainly, infrastructure spending, tax cuts and less regulation – that's all pro-growth. But are we going to get some of that implemented in enough magnitude to move the needle on the economy anytime soon? We didn't think it was going to happen quick.
