If retail sales grow and no one sees it, it still causes a boom!


If retail sales climb skyward and no one sees, it still causes a boom. Like the proverbial tree no one sees falling in a forest, the growth in retail sales has a real impact -- after inflation.

Fritz Meyer had a hunch that something did not add up. Retail sales releases month after month have been okay, but based on decades of experience, Fritz knows that inflation often masks real activity. So he built a spreadsheet adjusting for inflation the Census Bureau's retail sales data releases. It revealed a story that the financial press month after month have been missing. Fritz stepped me through his analysis last Friday. As always, he summarized it in a chart.

FinTech Will Eat Older Advisors' Lunch


Having built a very successful practice for three decades, the advisor on the phone was sure he would not use a dashboard for communicating with clients and influencers. He delegated creating newsletters and client communications to his staff.

Seemingly oblivious to the revolution in building trusting relationships on the web, this mindset is common among older advisors, and it makes them increasingly susceptible to competitors who understand financial advisor technology. A 30-something  or 40-ish CFP, CIMA, CPA/PFS, CFA, who grew up texting and understands social is able to target your clients with campaigns about tax and financial planning, dripping on them weekly with inarguable facts and analysis that you are not providing to  them.

Fritz Meyer Was Right About Earnings


Two months ago, economist Fritz Meyer began using the phrase, "upward revisions to accelerating earnings," to describe the outlook for profits. The new tax law, he said, would gradually add eight percentage points to 2018 earnings growth on the S&P 500. 

Since Fritz first made this observation in late December, earnings forecasts tracked by Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S have been ratcheting higher fairly steadily. For weeks, advisors subscribing to our website platform have benefited from a weekly financial news stream with updaties on the unfolding earnings surge. Clients and contacts saw it in emails, videos, articles, tweets, scripts and animated GIFs, all of which are customized personally.
