Apr 07 2017

The combination of planned tax cuts (both corporate and personal), light-handed regulation, a repatriation tax holiday on overseas cash and possible infrastructure spending has buoyed hopes for faster economic activity in 2H17 into 2018. However, earnings have been more crucial for stock prices.feedback

Mar 29 2017

I think it's still about earnings. It's still about fundamentals, but investors are just reacting to whatever happens. We're about to break out to the positive side. Actually we have not been in an earnings recession. We've been in an energy depression and we're coming out of it. Ex-energy, there was only one quarter in the last three years that earnings were down.feedback

Jan 17 2017 - Twitter

Clearly this is a more unusual candidate or president-elect than we are used to having in terms of Twitter storms and things like that, and I think at some point we'll kind of get a bit numb to it as opposed to reacting to every tweet that comes out.feedback

Corporate profits look poised to increase in 2017 and 2018 due in part to easing bank lending standards, a rebound in small-business optimism, tax cuts and energy sector recovery.feedback

It doesn't get Democrats on board and Republicans are pushing back a little bit because whatever tax they do collect, for example on a repatriation agreement on overseas cash, they would like to see that kind of be benchmarked against other tax cuts.

Nov 04 2016

On Trump, the issue is more about we don't know his policies. There's a lot of fear around trade. It's not clear to me the Democrats would be good on trade either. Both parties meet there at the fringes.feedback

Jul 13 2016

In some instances, I'd be very worried. Utilities, for example, are trading on a price-to-sales basis at 25-year highs. They're not going to generate 30 percent earnings growth. They just don't.feedback

Jun 28 2016 - Bear market

In the past, such a depressed zeitgeist did not generate a new bear market but provided the basis for a recovery.
