I'm out of town for a few days, so this week's email doesn't include the full economic summary. I do have a few items for your consideration, however:
1 - The video of John Maron's excellent investment fraud presentation that I promised does not appear to be in the cards, I'm sorry to say. Between the length of the presentation (about an hour) and the low volume of John's voice, it would probably be a long and difficult video to watch. If you were hoping to see it, please accept my apologies.
2 - Be on the lookout for an email later this week. We have scheduled a special client-only event entitled "How We Manage Your Money" for late April. When you show up for the session, you'll be given a personalized report of your portfolio. Then, using the report, I will guide participants through the process of rebalancing their portfolios. It should be very educational and (hopefully) worthwhile. Stay tuned!
3 - Amid all the seriousness in the world right now, I thought you might enjoy the latest viral video. (In case you don't know what a viral video is, it is a short movie -- often made by an amateur -- that appears somewhere on the Internet and, through viewers passing it on to others, becomes a sensation among millions worldwide.) The 55 second flick below is pure innocent fun.
Back with a full economic report next Monday. In the meantime, have a great week!
