The Wall Street Journal says the Fed "apologized" for its mistaken message of December 19th and has adopted its new mantra, patience, that they're now repeating repeatedly. Investors love it!

Following January's blowout 304,000 net-new jobs and the rebounding manufacturing PMI, investors are rethinking their gloomy December outlook.

The CBO's latest federal deficit and debt forecasts show U.S. debt, as a percent of GDP, is headed for the stratosphere. Should you be worried?

The China trade war, says JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs economists, might cut 0.1% from 2019 GDP growth. How bad is that?

Stocks were cheap in December and recovered to fair value. Wall Street's "top" strategists' consensus S&P 500 forecast for 2019: +8%. Are they right?

Foreign stocks stink compared to U.S. stocks. Should foreign equities even be included in a diversified portfolio?
