Jul 14 2017

Jul 14 2017

This is a larger story. The market doesn't expect tax reform. There are investors that tell you they think they're not going to get tax reform. If you look at a basket of high tax stocks, it's significantly under performing the S&P 500.feedback

Jun 04 2017 - Trump Presidency

Repatriation alone would boost earnings per share by $2.58 on the S&P 500 in 2018. If you have successful tax reform, you're looking at $7 to $8 of additional (earnings per share) in 2018 that isn't baked into earnings estimates right now.feedback

May 25 2017 - Trump Presidency

The madness happening in May, June, July and August will create a path forward for legislative activity in September, October and possibly tax reform in the first quarter of 2018, and that's where the opportunity is going to be.feedback

May 25 2017 - Trump Presidency

It's likely to be a bi-partisan deal–defense for infrastructure for debt ceiling deal.feedback

May 25 2017 - Trump Presidency

There are stocks that are going to be impacted by regulatory changes that have nothing to do with Congress. There's a bit of bifurcation happening among the ones that sold off, related to Trump.

If Republicans can figure out a way to pass a FY 2018 budget, and put together a coherent tax plan, expectations may begin to reverse.feedback

May 24 2017

Regardless, the CBO is seen as the final arbiter for members of Congress. If the score shows that the number of uninsured from AHCA will still be too high, the Senate may drop the health-care reform effort and could transfer the reconciliation instruction to tax reform.feedback

May 24 2017

That means the House would have to redo the bill. The Senate can't move without the House. If the House has to go back and redo this bill, it's very unlikely they'll have health care at all.feedback

May 24 2017

If they say more people are going to lose their insurance than the previous one, that makes it hard to pass. If they say it doesn't save money, it may mean the House has to pass a new one.feedback

May 22 2017 - Trump Presidency

It's the beginning of the process and everyone knows this is a place holder.feedback

May 22 2017 - Trump Presidency

The start of the budget process is extremely important because the fiscal year 2018 budget will include the reconciliation instructions for tax reform, assuming they're going to finish tax reform. If you don't pass a fiscal 2018 budget, there is no tax reform. This starts the process officially. We think the Comey stuff is serious. But at the end of the day, I can't be on the sidelines if a $200 billion infrastructure plan is going to be put on the table. That could be tomorrow, it could be in two weeks.feedback

May 17 2017 - Trump Presidency

May 10 2017 - American politics

Democratic talk of impeachment increased significantly last night. The narrative is not going away and will continue to hamper the lightly staffed Administration.

From a policy perspective, does this in fact force Republicans to get their act in gear and actually get tax and healthcare reform?feedback

May 10 2017

Voters will continue to push out the party in power if they do not feel their standard of living is improving...The Republicans have been given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to prove that getting productivity higher, via tax cuts and deregulation, can help lift GDP even if labor force growth is slowing.feedback

May 10 2017 - Trump Presidency

Passage of the Trump agenda, most notably with tax reform should help keep confidence elevated, but any undermining of confidence from political developments and/or the inability to enact the agenda could move the needle in the opposite direction.feedback

May 10 2017 - American politics

While distractions from investigations could hinder policy developments, our sense is that Republican members of Congress will want to speed up their policy achievements to overcome recent political developments. As such, Republican political troubles may serve as a catalyst for policy actions. From a political perspective, this is not enough growth to keep U.S. voters happy. In fact, U.S. voters have removed the party in power in five of the past six federal elections. This level of political volatility is very rare in U.S. history and it is the direct result of slower economic growth.feedback

Apr 25 2017 - Trump Presidency

Feb 27 2017 - Affordable Care Act

A key part to funding tax reform is the plan on the Affordable Care Act. … They have to get it done in this budget cycle. They have to get it done by Sept. 30. They probably will talk about March, April for repeal and replace. He's going to say, I'm going to invest in infrastructure. He's going to talk about getting those tax rates as low as possible, that he's going to deliver a tax cut for individuals and businesses. But he's not going to go into the specifics of capital expensing or how the substitute of Affordable Care Act is going to be.feedback

Feb 14 2017

You're going to get a lot of hand-wringing. It's slow, and it's going to be gradual. It's like 'Hunger Games' for tax lobbyists now. If you're negatively impacted by the border tax, you're pushing the net interest deductibility.feedback

Jan 27 2017 - Mexico

For all the noise of a border war and a possible trade war with Mexico, like anything else with Trump, look beneath the surface. Yesterday, Trump sent a signal that he was open to the Republican border-adjustable tax plan. We were told repeatedly no decisions have been made by Trump regarding the border-adjustable tax system.

Trump wants to move quickly on several key items – Obamacare repeal, tax reform, the Supreme Court nominee, the wall funding and infrastructure.

Trump moves, from the business world, at a fast pace.feedback

Dec 28 2016

Dec 21 2016

Number one, Donald Trump says he's going to do tariffs, but this is a way of doing tariffs but in a less hurtful way. It begins to create incentives for companies to come back to the U.S. It also gives you a ton of tax revenues that could be used to get the corporate tax rate lower.feedback

Dec 16 2016

Sep 23 2016

Stocks usually rally if the incumbent party wins. If Hillary puts Trump away at this debate, you'll see a broad rally in the S&P 500, and my thinking on Trump is if Trump wins, you're going to get a sell-off into the election. It's temporary.
