Yesterday was the final deadline for normal tax filings. We are very interested to see what the total tax revenues were for this season. Since this is reported by the US government, we look forward to the data release, and of course will review it with everyone here.
So far earnings have not been ok. Top line growth is still absent, but managers continue to squeeze every drop of earnings out through productivity gains and technology improvements. Markets are dicey as we are at high valuations. Continued company growth with a sideways market is helpful.
Travels and roundtable questions
I will be out of the office the rest of the week, tethered of course via technology. With the tax season behind us, look out for our roundtable event coming soon. Get your questions thinking cap on as we will be requesting formally next week with a call for your Social and Medicare questions. Anything is fair game !
Friday April 18, 2014 is Good Friday and Capital Markets as well as our office will be closed. Don’t forget to spend time with those special in your life …. It goes fast!
Best Wishes and talk to you next week!
