As you receive this, I will be on the road to a neighboring state for a whirlwind tour of business, lunches, dinners, and fun visits with friends over the weekend. Luckily the weather is cooperating as it has been dicey to say the least lately. It is always enjoyable to get out of the office for good drive/think time, even with the heckling of family for missing two kids basketball games.
As mentioned last week, earnings are good but not great. Adding this week to the mix, now in the bottom of the fourth inning, it is fair to say recent earnings are slightly lower in quality, but not terrible. There are some real winners and losers, again more divided than in recent quarters/years.
Sneak Peek at January 2014 Review/Video
Enough time has now lapsed to give clarity on the recent market movements and gyrations which began in early January. Next week brings the start of February and the monthly January 2014 J.K. Financial, Inc. review, which we think you will really enjoy, as we point DIRECTLY to the economic data release that has put concern in the capital markets lately.
Super Bowl Frolly
Sunday night marks the end of NFL football season and a few milestones as the venue is in open air and far north of most venues. Oddly with the crazy weather patterns, it looks to be better than our local Dallas super bowl venue weather just a few years back. Good Luck to both teams !
Have a Great Weekend and a Super Friday!
