Don’t Fear Higher Interest Rates
Dec. 04, 2017 - First Trust -  The Federal Reserve has a problem. At 4.1%, the jobless rate is already well below the 4.6% it thinks unemployment would/could/should average over the long run. We think the unemployment rate should get to 3.5% by the end of 2019 and wouldn’t be shocked if it got that low in 2018, either
Sector Performance Via Market Capitalization Since Trump Won The Presidential Election

Nov. 30, 2017 - First Trust -  View from the Observation Deck
1. From 11/8/16 through 11/29/17, small-capitalization (small-cap) stocks outperformed both mid- and large-cap stocks, as measured by the S&P 500 Index, S&P MidCap 400 Index and S&P SmallCap 600 Index (see "Index" line in table).
2. We are encouraged by the fact that small-cap stocks have outperformed mid-cap stocks, which in turn have outperformed largecap stocks, because it indicates to us that the traditional risk-return dynamic (the greater the risk taken, the greater the return expected) is alive and well, despite President Donald Trump’s unorthodox approach to governing.

Broad universe, bright potential
Feb. 28, 2017 - Aberdeen Asset Management -  From Asia to Latin America, global emerging markets (GEM) comprise a broad universe and can offer good quality companies across sectors. A young workforce and growing middle-class population underpins its vast growth potential. Some countries, such as India and Indonesia, are stepping up their efforts on structural reforms, which bodes well for long-term growth. A wide choice of owner-operator businesses makes emerging markets particularly compelling.
