CEO Scott Colyer and CIS Matt Lloyd discuss their 10 investment themes for 2020. Watch to learn more about expectations and top opportunities, and the warning signs we look for.


The U.S. Household: Connecting the Dots

The state of the U.S. household is in one the best shapes it has been in throughout history; though depending on how you look at it, it may corroborate your skepticism or optimism. At a recent discussion, a key debt figure was triggering doubt about this optimism.


The 2018 Economic Playlist: Carry the Tune

Since the dawn of time music has played a pivotal role in the defining of the times and the progression made. We would like to utilize the artistic genius of these maestros to bring some context to the current pivotal point in the economy and capital markets.


The Relationship of Suds and Bubbles

The proliferation of news, information, opinion and fact (which all come across in the same way) has had an overwhelming effect on the common investor and the instructional as well. Attempting to delineate the crowded trade from the minority viewpoint is a far greater task currently. Though this increased dissemination of information is beyond the recognition of the investor’s psyche, it does have a more pronounced positive impact.

European Forecast: Clouds Lifting

We understand the general public’s concern with regard to Europe. Just when you get your hands around a cease fire in Ukraine, the “Greexit” hits the newsstands with hardline headlines. If this Greek drama ever ends - which is unlikely as we noted two weeks ago detailing Greece’s restructuring –-rescheduling or outright default on debt occurs over 45% of the time since 1800, one still has to deal with the constant threat of a deepening recession.

Deflation: Consternation Not Elation

Deflation has been around ever since there was an excess supply of something or when demand had plummeted. The term “deflation” has now become mainstream in the general public’s lexicon, though the understanding of the declining economic growth that corresponds with it is often disregarded until it wreaks havoc on the consumer’s paycheck. When we see deflation permeating global economics, market movements and NFL games, the general public will become acutely aware of the other major impact from deflation, the increasing symbiotic nature of all the global economies.

Oversold Market Poised to Rebound

The distinction between ?bear market? and ?interruption? is important in understanding and assessing the ultimate upside potential of this cycle. The DJIA had a terrific advance between October 2002 and 2007 of nearly 100%, but when the advance resumed in March 2009 with much of the market?s longer term sector leadership still intact, it soon became apparent that the financial debacle had presented only an interruption of the bullish cycle that began in 2002.

Energy: Technology Disruption, but not to all

Disruptive Technologies are the gold vein every entrepreneur seeks, but rarely find. Clayton M. Christensen, the patriarch of observing disruptive technologies, noted in his seminal book The Innovators Dilemma in 1997 that each breakthrough can be categorized as either disruptive or sustaining.

Consumer Spending & Economic Recoveries: What They Mean Going Forward

As a follow-up to the discussion on the rollover of the duration of the unemployed, the byproduct of an accelerating improvement in the undercurrents of the job market is consumer spending. The measure of consumption has a primary correlation to wages and income workers receive. As such, the benign improvement in wages has an obvious correlation to the benign improvement in consumption. There is a strong secondary driver which we will discuss shortly.
