March To Freedom Fund: July Update

2018-08-20 seekingalpha - 1
The March to Freedom Fund, which will provide the dividends that pay my wife's and my expenses in retirement, has spent much of the last year or so trailing the S&P 500 (SPY). That is something that I am fine with for two reasons: 1) In previous years we’ve outperformed the index in years that it suffered a loss (for example, 5.4% total return for our portfolio, -2.2% total return for the S&P 500 in 2015).

Jefferies Says Buy 3 Large Cap Integrated Energy Stocks Now

2018-08-16 247wallst
Oil has taken a beating lately as the black gold has suffered from a rising dollar, though it has had a strong run off of the lows posted in 2016. One thing that has hurt some of the larger capitalization integrated companies, in addition to the recent decline in oil pricing, was some pretty poor second-quarter results, which made some investors jettison the shares.

Chevron, Boeing Sink the Dow Wednesday

August 15, 2018: Markets opened slightly lower Wednesday but the situation deteriorated quickly. By the time the report on oil inventories was released, the major indexes had already drawn a bead on their intraday lows. That report torpedoed energy stocks which traded down about 3.5% while defensive sectors showed some small gains. The Turkish currency problem still captures some attention although many economists don’t think the country’s ills are contagious.
