Musk Hosts SNL … Mauldin SIC Conference … Robert Kaplan Talks Taper

Being probably the least fan of SNL – Saturday Night Live – in our family, it is on the calendar to attempt to stay up this weekend and watch Elon Musk host SNL. Once announced there has been some grumblings among actors, a fiery Musk Tweet and fiery Tweet response that are likely no more than showmanship, but like many I can’t wait to see the show!

Ratings increase? Bet so!

John Maulden SIC conference

Last year the John Mauldin SIC – Strategic Investor Conference – was available virtually … and once again it is this year. This conference lasts for two weeks and started this week … has close to 50 high-powered guests, with complete replays and slide decks … we are excited to present the high points of some of these speakers just as we did earlier this week with the Warren Buffett Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting and our Q 3 2020 Newsletter

Taper Talk – Floating the Balloon ?

Local favorite Dallas Federal Reserve chair Robert Kaplan who is not a voting member of the FOMC but still remains on the board this year was the first to mention the word Taper – Well he didn’t really mention taper but mentioned the slowing of asset purchases.

No more than a few days later Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen also mentioned something with regards to asset prices and the possibility of slowing purchases.

With a rather yawning capital market response, it would not be beyond a reasonable belief that they are floating some of these out to see market responses.

Look for more comments from us on this and a very watchful eye for more speakers slowly adjusting the aircraft carrier.

Friday
