Jeff’s Stock Market Commentary: Is The Trump Rally Over?

Summary: Although the US major stock markets are at or near all-time highs, the economic data signals continued US and global growth. My viewpoint is that we are still in the early stages of what could be a multi-year growth cycle. https://jeffvoudrie.com/jeff-voudries-stock-market-commentary-continued-us-global-growth/#

Each money manager and/or investor has a process that helps them determine when, how and how much to invest. The process that I use starts by looking at whether the United States and/or global economy is expanding or contracting.

Donald Trump the ‘Chaos Candidate’
Last week I read a book that referred to Donald Trump as the ‘Chaos Candidate’. What we have witnessed in the last two weeks sure fits the definition of chaos:

We have seen contentious nominee hearings.

We have seen Democrats boycott the hearings to delay votes, thus very few votes have occurred for his nominees.

The Republicans at the meeting in Philadelphia seem to be singing the same establishment tune they have been for months/years. (and that has resulted in low approval ratings)

Now we have a Supreme Court nominee where President Trump is already suggesting using the ‘nuclear option’ to get Gorsuch appointed. Doing so could possibly change the threshold of all future Supreme Court nominations. Read more, https://jeffvoudrie.com/jeff-voudries-market-commentary-trump-chaos-candidate/#

It has been a difficult week for owners (like my clients) of the 10-year US Treasury Bond ever since Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen signaled that a rate increase is still on the table. https://jeffvoudrie.com/time-exit-us-treasury-bonds/

Jeff’s Weekly Stock Market Commentary: The Stock Market and The Economy

Almost a year ago I remember predicting that the S&P 500 would set lower lows before it reached higher highs. The S&P 500 hit an all-time high of 2132 back on July 20th of 2015. As a result I had been moving out of stocks as we approached August 2015. https://jeffvoudrie.com/jeff-voudries-weekly-stock-market-commentary-july-15-2016/

I’m Jeff and this is my Weekly Market Commentary for May 18, 2016.

I am 51 years old and for most of my life I haven’t really had any hobbies. Over the last year, though, I have discovered that I really enjoy sailing. The power of the wind is incredible and the thought that sails can be used to harness that wind and transfer the energy into forward propulsion seems almost magical.

One big difference riding in a sailboat versus a motorboat is that sailboats lean over as the sails catch the wind. This is known as ‘keeling’. Initially, it feels quite dangerous as the boat starts to roll to the side 45 degrees! It is very unnerving for a lot of people—like my wife! She prefers keeping her feet firmly planted on terra firma. Keeling reduces the drag and helps the boat start to skate across the water. Of course the wind doesn’t always stay constant so the degree of keeling keeps changing. https://jeffvoudrie.com/jeff-voudries-weekly-market-commentary-may-18th-2016/
