Take the Stress Out
In this funny but serious post, just completed earlier this week, we discuss the ease of stress that allowing plenty of time and being prepared allow….
Somewhat self serving, as your stress is of course our stress….but we can all be less stressed together!

Capital Market Comments
Capital Weight Versus Equal Weight! – Why the Heck it matters?
In this timely October post we discuss the importance of the strength of the team versus just a few players…aka Capital versus Equal Weight ….We also get to show off some of our very cool new research “Stuff” from Koyfin….
Oh….the reason this matters so much ….is just as your team can do well with an all star or two… lose them and you could be in trouble…. the wish is players develop around them to give more depth!
Have a Great Day, Talk to You at the End of December and the Year!
