Positive Scuttlebutt

By Charles Payne, CEO & Principal Analyst

We begin the day with more positive scuttlebutt on the China trade, which I think might be real this time, as I’m seeing media stories saying Phases Two will never happen.  LOL. I think a Phase One deal will be signed this year. I suspect the administration will suspend the proposed December 15 tariffs in a measure of good faith, as China continues to step up with increased olive branches, including greater intellectual property laws and punishments.

Enforcement is obviously an issue, but the pendulum continues to move closer to the goals of the trade fight.

Portfolio Approach

Today’s Session

Lots of back and forth this morning on the China trade front with President Trump and President Xi chiming in.  A deal seems close, but both want to win the public relations war in their respective countries. The fact is the media will not give Trump credit no matter the terms.

The major indices are all in the green to start this holiday shortened trading week.

 

 


Comments
Charles, you commented on homelessness in San Francisco. Right outside, there is the former Hamilton Air Force Base, beautiful, now turned over to Novato, but it would be perfect to humanely relocate the homeless and also allow the RV dwellers to park. One square mile of beautiful and almost totally unused real estate. Services could be provided the next day ... medical and social services and electricity and trash pickup.
