The fact that people even monitor the Dow is an artifact of history. People still refer to how many points the Dow is up or down, even though a 100-point move is roughly half a percent today and it was approximately 5 percent at the time of the 1987 crash.

From 1966 through 2013, the S&P 500 returned 15.2 percent when rates were falling and only 5.9 percent when rates were rising. Bottom line, stock investors should expect lower returns as rates rise over the next few months and years.

Inflation is ticking up a little bit, and unemployment claims are back to their lowest levels dating to 1970, when the population was much lower. This suggests that some tightening is in order from the Fed, and in the next few meetings we're likely to see a small rate increase.

To me, I never thought Donald Trump, and I still don't believe it today, was a racist. I don't believe that he's anti-African American. For too long, the African American community has been ignored by the Republicans because they thought we were always locked with the Democrats.

Certainly not an establishment Republican [and] he's not a Democrat, he was open. And he's a business guy. And business guys tend to look at where's the opportunity for a benefit.

Trump is a business guy, and I think he's going to tilt towards finding [a] way to use fiscal policy … to move the economy forward. Let's give him a shot. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt; see if we can find common ground.

It means more inflation and higher interest rates, which is bad for the bond market.

I think what happened is the reality kind of set in a little bit.

I think most people expected a very bad reaction in the markets to the Trump election, and I think a lot of people were basing that on Brexit.

Given that most market pundits expect a rate hike in early December, moving from cyclical stocks and into defensive stocks seems prudent.

Ordinary investors are best served long term to simply stay put and ride out the volatility. Volatility increases when uncertainty increases, and the uncertainty of what might happen if Trump prevails in an upset in the presidential election is causing investors angst.

That to me is probably the one stain on the leadership in Washington that nobody seems willing to address.
