Hello and Happy Holidays!
We would like to start by thanking everyone who was generous enough to donate toys for our annual Toys4Tots campaign this year. We do not have a final tally on the number of toys yet, but you can see by the pictures on Facebook there will be many smiles on kids' faces at the end of this month.
We have a lot to be thankful for this year when it comes to the markets. Most well balanced all equity portfolios were up in the 20% range through the end of November. Some of the reason for this are highlighted in our article below, "Giving Thanks" from Brian Westbury, Chief Economist for First Trust Portfolios.
Since 1928, the stock market has had only five negative years following a 25% annual return.
