Reasons for thanks, with a long road ahead

By Kyle Tetting
November has given us much to be thankful for. Though the exponential growth of positive coronavirus cases continues to weigh, news from Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca may finally be showing us the light at the end of the tunnel. While stocks had shown strength on the hope of this news, November brought more concrete signs that economic growth may follow a successful vaccine.



Allocation to optimize reward vs. risk

In a Money Talk Video from the 2020 Investment Outlook Seminar, Bob Landaas and Dave Sandstrom explain how investment mix is key to optimizing risk-adjusted returns. […]



Pessimism could send a contrary signal

By Kyle Tetting
Economists at Yale University’s decades-long confidence surveys ask investors what they believe the probability is of a “catastrophic stock market crash in the U.S. in the next six months.” Individual investors were as pessimistic as ever in August, according to survey data. The most recent report shows little improvement. […]

On Balance: The noise of summer

By Kyle Tetting

Keeping balance in unnerving times

By Bob Landaas
These are certainly trying times for investors. As the novel coronavirus spreads, significant sectors of the U.S. economy have either slowed or shut down.
