It pays to be an ex-president and his wife. Perhaps that explains why Hillary, against logic, continues her quest for the holy grail. Since leaving the White House the Clintons have made lots of money, which is more than can be said for the average investor in recent months. Still, given all the bad news last week the stock market acted fairly well, suggesting that many money managers wanted to begin the quarter snapping up some bargain based stocks. Can’t blame them, since there were(and still are) many attractive valuations to be found. For my part, still not convinced that the bottom has been reached. Housing is still in the tank and there are continued credit market concerns.
