T&C | Episode 23: There’s Always an Arquillian Battle Cruiser

2021-09-03T18:55:35+00:00

We explore the cacophony emanating from the loudest voices in the room on things like meme stocks and the delta variant, and provide our own measured analysis to separate hyperbole from reality. We also explore the jaws opening between economic data and interest rates, the Fed’s conundrum, and stretched valuations for the most speculative stocks.

Market Commentary – The Guns of August – August, 2021

2021-08-13T20:27:52+00:00

After spending the last few months mired in pop culture, seems we should diversify this month and look to one of our favorite books, an underappreciated tome on an underappreciated topic: World War I. Generationally, many of us have a connection to World War II, and there has been much more ink and media committed to the sequel than to the Great War. Having said that, the seeds of WWII were planted on the fields of Verdun and the conference tables at Versailles.

T&C | Episode 21: Flashing is good?

2021-07-23T13:27:53+00:00

We ignore the flashing red light on the microphone, just like markets have been ignoring any number of warning signs. We discuss the bond market (or lack thereof), explore the conflicting signals sent by treasury yields, and the explore the inexplicable appetite for the currently misnamed high-yield debt. The bifurcation of equity returns between megacap and the rest is discussed, as are the potential effects of the delta variant on supply chains. We also discover Will and Adam were, unsurprisingly, both in high school Latin clubs. Caveat emptor.

T&C | Episode 20: Bark Twice if You’re in Milwaukee

2021-07-07T13:18:13+00:00

We bark again about the continued mania in meme stocks, as well as delve into the inflationary pressures building in certain parts of the economy. The massive flows into equities and misnamed “high yield” debt are also topics of conversation, as are looking to the late 1940s and late 1960s as potential playbooks for what might be a choppy remainder of the year.
