We begin by introducing the Beauport Unique Experience, a client-centered process in which the firm’s care component is a collaborative relationship with each client. Together, through detailed processes, each client’s unique vision is identified, goals are set and custom recommendations and solutions are crafted to assist each client to achieve a secure financial future, with accompanying peace of mind.

To ensure wealth goals, retirement planning and solutions progress as planned, our face to face bi-annual reviews measure progress supported by our network of national and regional financial specialists, combining to provide a matchless level of personal service, expertise and integrity our clients have relied on spanning three decades.

Market Review

April 10, 2017

Former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan made headlines on 12/05/96 when he delivered his famous "irrational exuberance" speech.  Greenspan's comments, directed at what he believed to be unrealistic stock values, proved to be premature as the S&P 500's bull market run (which was 74 months old at the time) continued on for nearly 40 months while gaining an additional +105%.  The current edition of the Fed made their own headlines last Wednesday (4/05/17) with the release of minutes from their mid-March 2017 meeting.  The group observed that "some measures of (equity) valuations, such as price-to-earnings ratios, have risen above historical norms."  The Fed's published comments came just 3 days before the S&P 500's current bull market reached 97 months in length (source: BTN Research). The 2-day summit last week between President…

Market Review

May 1, 2017

It was just a start, but with the release of a 1-page outline last Wednesday (4/26/17), President Donald Trump began what will be a lengthy legislative process that may lead to tax reform.  Most of the outline's bullet-points came from the Trump 2016 campaign: a reduction of tax brackets from 7 to 3; a doubling of the standard deduction ($24,000 for a joint return); maintaining the deductibility of mortgage interest expense and charitable donations, but repealing the deduction for state income taxes paid; repeal the federal estate tax; lower the top corporate tax rate to 15%; a 1-time tax on the $2.6 trillion of American corporate profits held in overseas accounts.  The Republicans hope to use "reconciliation" to move tax reform through Congress, i.e., passage of a bill with a "simple majority" instead of the "three-fifths" majority typically required.  That technique can only be used if the legislation has been…

The best that Congressional lawmakers can hope for at this late date is a "Continuing Resolution" to maintain the existing funding levels from fiscal year 2016 into fiscal year 2017, the latter being a 12-month period that by next Sunday (4/30/17) will be half over.  If either political party complicates the legislative process with another agenda, we could see a government shutdown, our first since Washington stopped business for 16 days in early October 2013 (source: BTN Research). Equity investors have had a number of excuses to pick from that may have motivated them to "sell stocks" and "buy bonds" recently, e.g., ongoing Washington gridlock and geopolitical risks in North Korea and Syria.  The appetite for US Treasuries sent the yield on the 10-year note down to 2.17% last Tuesday (4/18/17), its lowest level in 5 months.  The average nationwide interest rate on a 30-year fixed rate mortgage dropped below…

President Donald Trump's negotiation skills in the business world are being tested on the global political stage in his first 3 months in office.  America's trade deficit with superpower China has been a sore subject for US exporters, driven by a manufactured "currency advantage" maintained by Chinese exporters (Chinese goods and services coming into the United States outnumber US exports sold to China by a ratio of 4-to-1).  But President Trump has offered Chinese President Xi Jinping "a better trade deal" if China would use its leverage to rein in the nuclear risk threatened by North Korea leader Kim Jong Un (source: BTN Research). The number of new applicants for unemployment benefits has been under 300,000 for 110 straight weeks (the total was 234,000 last week), the longest such stretch since 1970.  The 2.3 million Americans receiving unemployment benefits today are dwarfed by the 153.0 million Americans that are gainfully…
