Stocks do very well during periods of rising rates. Facts, not opinions.

We don’t know how high is too high. But is it likely that 1.5% treasury bond yields are going to be an insurmountable absolute level for the stock market? No it isn’t. And if history is any guide, we should be welcoming rising rates that are rising in response to higher growth expectations. This chart looks exactly like it should for a growing economy coming out of an emergency. Yes, valuations for most expen...The post Stocks do very well during periods of rising rates.

Grievance and possibility

We might be settling scores or we might be opening doors. It’s up to us. Grievance and possibility have confusing roots. Grievance isn’t about grieving. In fact, it’s the opposite. Grievance is the narrative of getting even. Possibility doesn’t itemize everything that’s possible. Instead, it focuses on the side effects that come from acting as though things are possible. Grievance looks back and possibility looks forward. Organizations and relationships that are focused on griev...

Carry on

I turn 44 years old today and I woke up thinking that I know what I was put on earth to do. How many people can say that? I’m not sure, but I am certain that I’ve taken this knowledge for granted. I’m not good at most things. I cook okay. I play guitar terribly. I’m the worst player in our weekly tennis group. My eleven year old son beats me at NBA 2K. I should be criminally prosecuted for dancing...The post Carry on appeared first on The Reformed Broker.

Ranking the unrankable

Weight is a useful measure. 10 pounds is twice as much as 5 pounds. Measuring things and then ranking them effectively enables us to make better choices and to scale up our operations. Sometimes, though, in our rush to standardize and process a complicated world, we begin to measure things that can’t be easily measured, and then, since we’ve measured them, to aggressively rank them. Smart isn’t easily measurable. Neither is beautiful, good or successful. And especially happy. A high ...

The reverse value/luxury curve

For most products and services, we rate them on a curve. Of course the seat on the discount airline was cramped, but that’s okay because it was cheap. Of course this Camry doesn’t look or ride like a Porsche, don’t be stupid… But, the opposite is true in the high end. When luxury goods are compared to luxury goods, the narrative is, “this one must be better, in absolute and relative terms, precisely because it’s more expensive.” And so hiring McKinsey costs 10x more than hiring a for...

Pandemic first job for HHS pick but health agenda is broader

By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR WASHINGTON (AP) — Health secretary nominee Xavier Becerra told senators Tuesday that confronting the coronavirus pandemic will be his first priority if confirmed, but he also pledged to expand health insurance, rein in prescription drug costs and reduce racial and ethnic disparities in medical care. “To meet this moment, we need strong federal leadership,” Becerra said at the first of two hearings on his nomination. “I understand the enormous challenges before us and o...

HHS nominee says pandemic comes first but agenda is broader

By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden’s pick for health secretary, Xavier Becerra, told senators Tuesday that tackling the coronavirus pandemic will be his first priority if confirmed, but he also pledged to work to expand health insurance coverage, curb prescription drug costs and reduce racial and ethnic disparities in medical care. “The COVID pandemic has killed 500,000 Americans,” Becerra told the Senate health committee. “To meet this moment, we need strong federa...

HHS nominee Becerra says pandemic will be top priority

By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden’s pick for health secretary, Xavier Becerra, faces two days of contentious Senate hearings. Republicans are portraying the Californian as unfit, but Democrats are unfazed, accusing the GOP of playing politics despite the coronavirus pandemic. Now attorney general of the nation’s most populous state, Becerra will be grilled by two panels. Tuesday, it’s the health committee’s turn, followed Wednesday by the Finance Committee, which w...

That might not be the right question

“Where do you get your ideas?” The thing is, everyone has ideas. All the time, every day. Having ideas is part of the human condition. The right questions might be: Are you exposing yourself to new inputs and new situations, and challenging yourself to find more interesting ideas? Are you pushing the ideas you have further, making them more complete, turning them from hunches to notions to ideas to theories? Are you publishing your theories, sharing your reasoning and having your ...

Inspectors find ‘deficiencies’ at virus test lab in Valencia

By DON THOMPSON | The Associated Press Inspectors found “significant deficiencies” at California’s new coronavirus testing laboratory, problems that state officials on Monday, Feb. 22, partly blamed on the rapid ramp-up they required from the lab’s private operator under terms of a $1.4 billion contract. A fraction of 1% of the more than 1.5 million tests processed at the Valencia Branch Laboratory had problems, the state said in a preliminary report, but Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. ...

Careful what you wish for

Because wishes don’t always come true, but wishing takes a lot of time and energy and focus. What you wish for determines how you’re spending a juicy part of your day. If you wish for something you can’t control, that might fill you with frustration or distract you from wishing that could lead to productive work. Better to wish for something where the wishing itself is a useful act, one that shifts your attitude and focus.

The Latest: Biden to mark 500,000 lives lost with ceremony

By The Associated Press WASHINGTON __ President Joe Biden will mark the U.S. crossing 500,000 lives lost from COVID-19 with a moment of silence and candle lighting ceremony at the White House. The nation is expected to pass the grim milestone on Monday, just over a year after the first confirmed U.S. fatality due to the novel coronavirus.

The Latest: Grieving Italians mark a COVID-19 anniversary

By The Associated Press CODOGNO, Italy — Italians are marking one year since their country was shocked to discover it had the first known locally transmitted COVID-19 case in the West.

How to reconcile those pesky operating expenses

Today, we venture into the weeds to discuss an event that occurs this time of year. Nope. Not Chinese New Year – which is cool, by the way. Instead, we’ll discuss reconciling operating expenses including common area maintenance charges. Fun stuff – huh? Generally, reconciling expenses proceeds with commercial tenants who do not own their building. Leases, rental agreements or contracts typically outline things such as base rent, commencement, expiration, rental increases and responsibility for m...

The end of dumb pipes

The phone company didn’t care what sort of conversation you were having. The call was the call. Same is true for cable–what you watched didn’t matter to them. The reason retail banks are so frustrating to many customers is that because they began with a geographic focus, they’re dumb about who their customers are. They underserve or overserve in random ways. And in trying to serve everyone, they end up doing a lousy job of serving anyone. But there’s no longer a reason for a provider to be...
