Michael Rogan on The Big Picture

By |2018-08-17T10:21:18+00:00August 15th, 2018|Media, Uncategorized|0 Comments

One of the hardest things for me to put aside when writing blogs and similar posts is the focus on the big picture. The “Why”. Why do we plan? Who is this money ultimately for and when do they need it? Most of you know we have spent decades warning about the misinformation in the [...]

Wesbury’s Outlook- The Kevlar Economy

By |2018-08-13T22:52:25+00:00August 13th, 2018|Bullish, Financial, Governments, Policy, Spending|0 Comments

Since March of 2009, the predictions of economic, and stock market collapse have been non-stop. Doom-and-gloomers have been unrelenting. And it's doubly frustrating since you can't disprove a negative until it doesn't happen. We have written hundreds of pieces since the recovery - and bull market – began, arguing that the pessimism was unjustified. We've [...]

Wesbury’s Outlook – No Recipe for Weak Housing

By |2018-08-07T09:52:10+00:00August 7th, 2018|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Something strange happened after last Friday's jobs report - the yield on the 10-year Treasury Note fell, finishing Friday at 2.95%, down four basis points from Thursday's close. To us, this makes no sense. If anything, it serves to reinforce our view that the bond market is making a big mistake. Yes, we realize that [...]

Wesbury’s Outlook – The Economic Surge

By |2018-07-31T21:26:27+00:00July 31st, 2018|Fed Reserve, Financial, Governments, Policy, Spending, Taxes|0 Comments

Paul Krugman, Larry Summers and Bob Gordon have some 'splainin to do. Where's that "secular stagnation?" Since 2009, they, along with many others, have said the US economy is stuck at 2% real growth. Their theory got traction after 2009, as the U.S. saw what we called a Plow Horse Economy. But, we never believed [...]

Wesbury’s Outlook- Economy Surges in Q2

By |2018-07-24T13:20:33+00:00July 24th, 2018|Bullish, Debt, Financial, Taxes|0 Comments

Economic growth surged in the second quarter this year. The only question is, by how much? Predicting this Friday's GDP report is trickier than usual. First, it's the initial report for the quarter. Second, we have to wait until Thursday for key data on exports and imports, which is particularly important because the trade sector [...]

Wesbury’s Outlook- Yield Curve Inversion

By |2018-07-17T06:10:52+00:00July 17th, 2018|Fed Reserve, Interest Rates, Policy|0 Comments

The yield spread between the 2-year and 10-year Treasury Note has narrowed to 25 basis points, its smallest spread since 2007. This has many investors worried the narrowing spread will lead to an inversion of the yield curve (when short-term rates exceed long-term rates) – which throughout history has often occurred prior to a recession.
