Optimism Pays

Market Content | Optimism

Rising Above

Market Content | Optimism

The thought of summing up these last eighteen months in a short letter is laughable.  There are just way too many layers to this beast.  From the first few months of 2020 when our lives and the market were upended by a microscopic force of nature to the now welcome return to an emerging semblance…

Bell Ringer

Market Content | Optimism

For ages, we’ve rung bells to mark significant moments.   In medieval times, bells alerted residents of storms, fires, wars and other events, and for centuries church belfries have invited congregants to gather in worship or prayer.  It’s had its place in markets too—for the last 150 years a ringing bell has marked the opening and…
