January 2019 Update and Good News!

What happened after Christmas Eve? The “Mini-Panic of 2018” appeared to have run its course and tax loss selling essentially ended. Bloomberg reported that the probability of any further short term rate increases essentially disappeared and was a replaced by the potential for a short term rate cut.
High cash flow investments, discounted High Yield bond funds and Energy Infrastructure, began to rally with price gains that exceeded broad market increases. The bond fund cycle after the Federal Reserve rate increase posture ends, provides 18 months of potential appreciation back towards par values.
The Energy Infrastructure appears to have strong gain potential for the next 5 years especially with recent progress in revenue and earnings for most of the group.
