Brad McMillan quotes

Aug 15 2017

The retail sales numbers that came out today - that's nothing but good news. We had a positive surprise for this month and upward revisions for the past two months. People are spending but they're not spending on the same things. So from an economic perspective, it's all good news. From a company-level perspective, there are winners and there are losers.feedback

Aug 10 2017

When you have a market like we have had this year, and it has been amazingly calm, and you introduce a major source of uncertainty, there is bound to be some reaction. Absent actual military action, I think the markets will realize that the rhetoric got head of the actual policy and it is time to calm down a little bit.feedback

Jun 22 2017

With the wisdom of hindsight, though, we know that even as things were great, the seeds of the next downturn were already growing. What we really need to know is not what the comparison tells us about today, but what it means for us in the future.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - Commonwealth

We did not get the early bump to quite the same degree, but the current growth pattern – and the slow decline in growth – looks much like the late 1990s.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - Commonwealth

Having some cash can give you the confidence to ride it out.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - Commonwealth

When you live in Florida and you know hurricane season is coming, that doesn't mean you move back to Massachusetts. But it does mean you're aware of it, you plan for it, and you're prepared if something happens to it. I'm not saying we have to panic, I'm just saying it's time to think about stormy weather.feedback

May 10 2017 - Trump Presidency

There's a tremendous amount of hope baked into the market that Trump is going to be able to act, particularly on tax reform.feedback

Mar 31 2017 - Dutch elections 2017

In many areas, we can expect the political news to get better (or at least less bad), which should alleviate that headwind. In Europe, the news is good: the Dutch elections resulted in a victory for the center, the French polls are trending that way, and the situation in Germany is also favorable.feedback

Mar 24 2017

I think at this point it's really a 'put-up or shut-up' moment for the Trump administration and what he's done is pretty bold. This is a kind of decision that the market wants to see Trump make and they're giving him the benefit of the doubt on it. One way or the other it clears the deck for tax reform. Trump may very well loose the battle but win the war.feedback

Mar 03 2017

The real takeaway here is if the Fed is willing to start moving, they see the economy as not only doing better but likely to do better going forward. The Fed is notorious for waiting until the evidence of growth is absolutely undeniable.feedback

Mar 01 2017 - Commonwealth

In the short term, I'm not worried. In the longer term, absolutely, this scares the heck out of me. The only other time we've come close [to this CAPE level] was 2007. Every time we've been at or above the current level, we've seen a significant market pullback.feedback

Mar 01 2017 - Commonwealth

Right now there's no reason to panic. We're moving into a moment that could be equivalent to boom times, and that's wonderful and it feels great. But it also raises the risks. You have to be cautious of those risks even as you're enjoying the good times.feedback

Feb 15 2017

I want to bet on the American consumers, regardless of what happens in Washington. That's going to be the place to be.feedback

Dec 28 2016 - Commonwealth

You want to bet on the American consumer. We're seeing wage growth continue to rise. We're seeing job growth doing very well.feedback

Dec 08 2016

If you look at the market as a whole, you actually might get a double whammy. It could turn out to be a very, very good year so we're not all that concerned about any short-term possible pullbacks.feedback

Nov 09 2016

With a Republican House and Senate, Trump now has a great deal more policy freedom – and it remains to be seen what he might do with it. Markets have reacted in the past with a decline as Trump's probability of victory rose, and that is very likely to happen (Wednesday) if he wins.feedback

Nov 01 2016 - Commonwealth

I'm going to be paying more attention to the jobs report this Friday. The only way the election is important is if Mr. Trump gets elected. Then we have to come to grips with (how his policy plays out).feedback

Nov 01 2016 - Commonwealth

Once the election is over, people are going to feel better regardless of the outcome.feedback

Oct 28 2016

I think the betting has to be that there's nothing too damning, but we don't know.feedback

Oct 28 2016

We're already seeing business and consumer confidence come back.feedback

Oct 07 2016

I expect companies to beat expectations - they always do. Any way you slice it, we're not going to see the growth that we were hoping for last spring. It's not going to happen.feedback

Oct 03 2016

One of the principal factors holding stocks back is policy uncertainty. Should Mrs. Clinton win, for better or worse, markets think they know what she will do.feedback

Sep 12 2016

It's like high blood pressure: You're probably going to have a heart attack some day, but it doesn't mean it's going to happen anytime soon.feedback

Sep 09 2016

Bank (loans) are increasing, and the possibility of a rate increase means they can reasonably be expected to be doing more business and making more money on it.feedback

Sep 05 2016

If you look at September on average, it's a bad month.feedback

Sep 05 2016

There is a real good chance that the low volatility that we have seen in August hasn't just disappeared, it's just been storing up for September.feedback

Sep 02 2016

In many respects, this report was a sweet spot. It's good enough that the economic growth continues, you're going to see the economic recovery move along. But it's not putting any more heat on the Fed to raise rates in September. In fact, it's going to dial them back a little bit.feedback

Aug 08 2016

This is a natural pause for reflection by the markets. Everyone is sitting there saying 'Holy cow, what did we do?feedback

Jul 26 2016 - IPhone

The real thing I'm going to be looking for is, is there a tip of the hat to a potential rate increase in September?feedback

Apr 27 2016

That kind of miss is going to make people question if the corporate earnings as a whole is as strong as they think they are. I think it's going to rattle confidence.feedback

Apr 27 2016

I don't think the Fed is going to raise rates today but they are starting to lean toward the possibility of a hike and are going to buy themselves some insurance by saying that June is more possible than a lot of people ... think.feedback

Apr 15 2016

I think it should be a fairly calm day. The market reacted to JPMorgan's earnings, the better than expected Chinese data, and now at the end of the week, everyone's kind of settling back and thinking 'ok we got through that, lets think about what happens next week,'.feedback

Feb 11 2016

The central banks have been taking extraordinary policy actions in the last several years...and now we're seeing that it hasn't been as effective as everyone had been assuming. When you add in the fact that the European banking system is under serious threat right now, you could actually see a path to the kind of systemic crisis that we had in 2008.feedback

Jan 15 2016

We suffered some real technical damage and the thing that worries me is this systemic lack of confidence. I still think the fundamentals are solid. The U.S. economy is not going into a recession anytime soon.feedback

Jan 06 2016

It's scary when you see the second largest economy on the planet seemingly melting down. There are very legitimate reasons for concerns. You could argue the market response has been very rational.feedback
