TGI-New Year’s Eve

The stock market’s flattish finish certainly doesn’t tell the story of 2015, which experienced dangerous and highly complicated events:

The continued oil decline, the Paris attacks, China’s economic struggles, the first Fed hike in a decade topped the list.  It’s actually quite remarkable that things held in as well as they did in 2015.  That was due to a handful of stocks that soared, while the vast majority struggled.  Amazon flying 120% and Google nearly 50% higher on the year contributed mightily to the S&P 500 BUT neither are DOW components.

Our plan for 2016 is to balance growth investments with beautifully boring blue chips for stability and income.  2015 was a stock picker’s market and we see that continuing in the new year.

Happy New Year.
