Seven Months into 2016 and both the DJIA and the S&P 500 are up over 7% for the calendar year.  As Bob Carey reports in his video at First Trust, earnings are also up about 7% for the majority of S&P 500 companies reporting this quarter.  The earnings have been better than expected and that’s “a really good thing!”  As Mr. Carey says, “Markets trade on expected earnings.”

Wilbur Ross, International Business Expert, discussed Free Trade Agreements on Squawk Box August 1.  I found it to be one of the best discussions I’ve heard on the subject. Listen in for details and facts. Unfortunately, the complete interview is not included there. It omits comments about how, under International Agreements, US companies are disadvantaged relative to its trading partners, as it relates to certain tax concessions.  You can use the following link to view the discussion.


Let us know how we can help you.
