Happy Fall!  I say this as it is over 80 and humid to be followed with temps in the 40’s later tonight.  Only in New England! We spoke in our last quarterly newsletter about navigating through this economic and political environment like a pilot flying IFR (instrument flight rule) where visibility is low and the […]

Dear client: We finished the March 31 newsletter with the statement “now is the hardest time to invest”.  We begin the current edition with “now is the hardest time to write a newsletter”.  We will explain in a few minutes!

Dear Client, Our previous quarterly newsletter written at year end was titled “Welcome to the new reality”, coming hot off the heels of a swooning stock market that cut a quick 20% off the major averages from late September through Christmas Eve.  We discussed four reasons why the environment had changed, from rising interest rates […]

Dear client, All of us at GSB Wealth Management hope you had a great Holiday season and a Happy New Year!  We enter 2019 on a much different stock market trajectory than we have witnessed in much of the past 10 years.  In fact, 2018 is the first year since 2008 that domestic stock markets […]

GSB Wealth Management Newsletter, October 1, 2018 *See note at the end re: trade fees Dear client, With fall upon us we thought it might be educational to look at the mid term elections coming up in November as well as the gubernatorial election right here in Connecticut.  No, we are not going to talk […]

GSB Wealth Management Quarterly Newsletter 6/30/2018 Our last newsletter started with “Happy Spring” coming out of March after four consecutive Nor’easters and trees and limbs down everywhere.  I was debating whether to start this newsletter with “Happy Summer” but decline to do so after being caught in the May 15 tornado and now suffering 8 […]

APRIL 11, 2018 Dear client: Recent goings on in Washington and the financial markets remind us (at least those of us who are old enough to remember) of a line in one of John Lennon’s hit songs titled “Nobody Told Me”. The line we refer to is “strange days indeed”. More on that later. The […]

JANUARY 8, 2018 Dear client: 2017 has turned out to be quite a year in the financial markets. We can think of few individuals who thought that the stock market (S&P 500) would return close to 20% when all were prognosticating in January of last year. We have to admit that GSB Wealth management was […]

OCTOBER 26, 2017 Dear client: This quarter’s newsletter will be somewhat abbreviated compared to previous newsletters as many of the trends we spoke about in June are still in place. The stock market, as defined by the S&P 500 has gained approximately 14% year-to-date. We are somewhat surprised by such a move given the ongoing […]

JULY 14, 2017 Dear client:   We have made it half way through 2017 and a number of interesting scenarios are playing out as referenced further along in this letter.  Surprising to most, the domestic stock market, as evidenced by the S&P 500 index, has returned 8.24% since the first of the year.  Interest rates […]
