Capital Insights: Stormwatch

January 19th, 2023|

Like the series of atmospheric rivers that pummeled California over the last several weeks, the Fed and other central banks’ aggressive constriction of monetary policy wreaked havoc on the markets last year. While it is understandable that most investors would certainly like to bid last year a good riddance, it is worth reflecting for [...]

Year End Tax Planning Strategies

October 18th, 2022|

For those who had not already filed their 2021 tax returns, yesterday marks another tax year in the books.  Taxpayers (or should we say their CPAs) received a bonus weekend to complete their returns with October 15th falling on a Saturday.  With one quarter left in 2022, it is now time to consider some [...]

Capital Insights: Alpha Beta

July 22nd, 2022|

Anyone who grew up in California may remember the grocery store chain called Alpha Beta. Alpha Beta was known for organizing their groceries in alphabetical order. Shopping there as a kid was always fun, because you could easily just head to the “C” aisle and quickly load up on candy and chocolate and off [...]

Capital Insights: The Fog of War

April 13th, 2022|

Our planet just can’t seem to catch a break. Just as countries, economies and markets were all beginning to emerge from last year’s Omicron surge, Putin did the unthinkable and invaded neighboring Ukraine with a ferocity and brutality that shocked the rest of the civilized world. Six weeks after the invasion, we continue to [...]

Capital Insights: Rough Start

February 1st, 2022|

Ugh. If there ever was just one word to describe the markets of January 2022, that might be it. If the past month seems like one of the worst starts to the year you can remember in recent history, congratulations, you would be correct. Perhaps there’s an opportunity as a Jeopardy! contestant in your [...]

Capital Insights: Back to 1983

November 19th, 2021|

1983 was thirty-eight years ago. 1983, seemingly innocuous, was a rather remarkable year as 106 million viewers tuned in to watch the final episode of M*A*S*H and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi was released into theaters. David Bowie’s Let’s Dance hit the top of the US billboards and Michael Jackson’s iconic music video, [...]

Capital Insights: Bottlenecks

July 22nd, 2021|

Nobody ever said reopening the planet was going to be easy.

The daunting logistical challenges of the world’s reboot are perhaps best epitomized by mishaps such [...]
