We already own TCCA in the Core Portfolio. But if you do NOT own, now is the time to buy. This position just went ex-dividend. This would also be a good time to ADD (buy more) to the position.
We look at virtually dozens of potential new investments every day, but everything is really over=priced in our opinion. BUT we are watching for the new RILYZ to start trading and may buy.
The electoral results last November have been repeated enough that most people in politics know them by heart. Republicans now control 68 state legislative chambers, while Democrats only control 31. Republicans flipped three more governors’ seats last year and now control an incredible 33 of those offices. Since 2008, when Barack Obama first took office, Republicans have gained somewhere around 900 to 1,000 seats overall.
There are a lot of reasons for this. But there’s no way to spin some of these numbers in a way that doesn’t speak to the awesome unpopularity of the blue party. A recent series of Gallup polls is the most frightening example.
Unsurprisingly, the disintegrating Trump bears a historically low approval rating. But polls also show that the Democratic Party has lost five percentage points in its own approval rating dating back to November, when it was at 45 percent.
