March has come and is almost gone, we are wishing it would take the snow with it. It definitely feels like it’s been one of the longest winters we can imagine. We are all looking forward to the arrival of Spring!
The markets have been particularly difficult lately, with negative returns for year, and much higher volatility than we had become accustomed to. There seems to be a number of technical trading issues that are triggered by the ‘news of the day’. The global economy still appears to be strong, with no signs of recession yet. The markets eventually trade on fundamental earnings and the strengths of the economy. Remember, we try to buy good businesses, and ignore the daily fluctuations. There are a number of articles and research I have read lately discussing these issues. You can find some of them on our website and I’ve also referenced a few below. Please give us a call if you have any questions or concerns.
