Quarterly Insight

3rd Quarter 2019

3rd Quarter 2019
“Location, location, location” is a well-worn axiom keen-eyed investors employ when evaluating a potential real estate purchase. However, “location” can also be applied when thinking about the types of investment accounts that “house” stocks, bonds, and other investments. Some investors may reduce their tax liability and increase their after-tax returns by wisely allocating investments between taxable and non-taxable (retirement) accounts.

Quarterly Insight

Second Quarter 2019

Second Quarter 2019
An up-and-down second quarter resulted in further stock-market gains, capping off the best first half for the S&P 500 Index since 1997. The market volatility that began last October continued in the first half of 2019. Stocks plunged nearly 20% in late 2018 on fears of rising interest rates, trade uncertainty, and Chinese economic worries. The S&P 500 bounced back in a big way in the first quarter, gaining 13% as the Fed tempered expectations for rate increases and trade tensions seemed to ease.

Quarterly Insight

First Quarter 2019

First Quarter 2019
Now that tax season has come and gone, most taxpayers are aware (in some cases, painfully) of the impact of the changes brought about by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Each tax return has its own unique wrinkles, and few situations are the same. Still, one broad conclusion that has been made about the new law is the sharp reduction in the percentage of taxpayers who itemized deductions.

Third Quarter 2018

Third Quarter 2018

As this historic bull market grinds ever-higher, some commonly-used axioms seem  apropos to stock investors. “Patience is a virtue.” “Don’t miss the forest for the trees.” “Good things come to those who wait.” But the phrase “hindsight is 20/20” also applies.
