Market Commentary – Parallel Universe – January, 2021

Though Neil DeGrasse Tyson would reprimand us, probably in a condescending manner, about ascribing significance to an arbitrary day commemorating one revolution of the earth around the sun, people, in general, put stock in the “new year.” The level of excitement associated with the arrival of 2021, closing the books on a year that will certainly live in infamy, is rivaled, at least in my lifetime, only by the mania associated with the end of 1999 as we stared into a new millennium.

The film: Class Action Park, demonstrates the sometimes-tragic consequences of not properly evaluating risk. . Located in New Jersey (everything is legal in New Jersey, per Hamilton), the park was the vision of a Wall Street veteran, Gene Mulvihill, whose firm was suspended by the SEC for fraud.

Market Commentary – Villainous Term – November, 2020

2020-11-05T23:43:22+00:00

It being on or about the fifth of November, we thought it appropriate to begin with “remember, remember, the fifth of November…” which is the start of a famous poem about the Gunpowder Plot. Though not alone, the face (pun intended) of the plot was Guy Fawkes, whose antics are widely regarded as the source of the term we use today, guy.

Market Commentary – The Hurricane Two Step – October, 2020

2020-10-16T18:40:53+00:00

The markets were hit by one figurative hurricane early this year—the COVID-induced bear market of February/March. It happened quickly and the damage, at least in terms of the S&P 500, was quickly repaired. However, not too far on the horizon, conditions are ripe for another storm in the markets, with what is sure to be a rollicking U.S. presidential election. 2020 has seen a record number of named storms and in this quarter’s commentary, Adam Eagleston discusses what we can learn from the various literal and figurative hurricanes that have hit us this year.

For those of you who read our monthly missives or listen to our podcast, you probably a) have too much free time, and b) understand that we have an affinity for wordplay. One of my favorites is the elusive triple entendre. I still remember being distracted for almost an entire soccer match because two of my teammates and I had discussed the concept before kickoff and spent the better part of 90 minutes trying to think of the best example possible.

One (of many) things I’ve learned from the compulsory homeschooling forced upon us by the quarantine is that homeschooling is difficult. Setting aside the environmental and psychological aspects (the role of “parent/teacher” is wildly unpopular in our house for all parties) some subjects, such as English, are quite challenging.

Contact tracing involves identifying people who have been contact with individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 (or other infectious diseases). Contact tracing is an important part in moving forward as more businesses and recreation sites reopen.
