What the Heck is Stagflation?

May 20, 2024

There has been some talk of stagflation this year and it finally became enough for Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell to comment on it. It seems to me that a lot of financial jargon gets tossed about without consideration for the fact that most people didn’t go to school for economics or get a job in finance. So, since it’s in the zeitgeist, maybe it’s time to define some terms and get to the bottom of a couple of questions. What is stagflation? Is it occurring in the U.S. right now?

Market Outlook Spring 2024

May 2, 2024

In our Winter 2024 outlook, we wrote about what we thought would be the most important factors that would impact investments in 2024, including: (1) Will inflation continue to fall as expected towards the Fed’s 2% target? (2) Will there be a recession? In January, a large majority of investors believed that the Fed would successfully bring inflation down from a very high level to near its 2% target by the end of 2024 while avoiding a recession. In this update, we analyze recent inflation and economic data and provide our opinions as to how it changes the outlook.

Why is the Market Falling?

April 22, 2024

Any time the stock market falls for several days in a row, investors are bound to wonder what’s causing the volatility, even if they aren’t necessarily worried about it. I have not had many clients, friends, or family members ask me about the recent losses in the stock market yet, which I take to mean that most people aren’t that concerned.

Over the last couple of years, a very commonly asked question we hear from clients or regularly address in our financial planning process with individuals is what to do with savings in this environment of higher short-term interest rates. It’s a good question, and one that hadn’t been particularly relevant in the decade prior, marked by near-zero interest rates. It’s relevant now and continues to be relevant.

Investors, Speculators, and Irrational Markets: Why We Focus on the Long-Term

March 22, 2024

Among my friends in the industry, we tend to challenge one another’s thinking and ask interesting questions just for fun. Well, I call it fun, though our significant others may beg to differ when it comes up at dinner parties. Lately there have been several discussions about whether current prices are justified by underlying fundamentals and one friend even suggested he may use some “fun money” to short NVDA. This inevitably led my other friend to a quote he has revisited often as of late…

Distance and Time

March 17, 2024

Land navigation, in Army jargon, is the act of navigating from one point to another over long distances in varied terrain using a map, protractor, and compass. Every major selection event in the Army (Ranger School, Special Forces selection, etc.) has a graded land navigation component as part of the larger selection event.
