A soft regulatory environment under Trump is good news for the company.
Marine Le Pen becomes Le President of France. The Far Right wins in The Netherlands as Geert Wilders' Party for Freedom wins the general election. The anti-euro far right Alternative for Germany (AfD) raises anti-immigrant feelngs in their country. Though not building a majority, AfD forms political coalitions and its influence grows disarmingly strong into the October 2017 election. Scotland becomes independent.  Also-Ran #5: Gold Shines: Domestic strife/chaos and an intensification of conflict between the new administration toward Iran and China result in investors and traders seeking protection in a period of heightened political risk. Unexpectedly -- at least based on the yellow metal's continued downtrend in prices over the last several years -- gold goes from goat to hero. Post-Mortem Kew-Forest School in Queens (Where's Donald "The Dude" Trump?)  Some final words. My outlook for 2017 is more gloomy than in years. To me, the biggest surprises are (1) the abundance of complacent sheep that populate our financial markets today, (2) the rapidity in which the bloom comes off the Trump flower next year, and (3) that the market actually may do what is unexpected in 2017. The Republican Party becomes divided and Trump's policy support loosens. Even the newly elected president's "A Team of Rivals" cabinet with vastly different philosophies and backgrounds becomes splintered, full of tension and conflicted, much like an episode of "The Apprentice." Unlike President Lincoln (who neither lacked for self-confidence nor needed to be the only voice in the room) and his ornery set of advisers, Trump's management style of an "Apprentice-like" administration does not produce constructive and cohesive policy. With little strategic vision and a limited ability to effectively govern, the Trump administration's popularity quickly wanes as the trade-off from a slower growth world to a late-cycle policy experiment to stimulate growth fails. Off of Twitter, absent regular press conferences and the delay/failure of policy, Donald Trump by year-end 2017 will be less ubiquitous and harder to find than he has been for the last 18 months and more like Where's Waldo? (see picture above -- can you find the young Trump?) All of which gets me back to the three questions that I have asked myself every morning over the last two to three years. These questions seem more appropriate to ask today than ever: In a paperless and cloudy world, are investors and citizens as safe as the markets assume we are? In a flat, networked and interconnected world, is it even possible for America to be an "oasis of prosperity" and a driver or engine of global economic growth? With the G-8's geopolitical coordination at an all-time low, how slow and inept will the reaction be if the wheels do come off? -- Doug's Daily Diary, I'm Bearish in Word and Deed (March 24, 2016) Think about these questions as you approach investing in 2017 and consider embracing the contrary and even some of my "probable improbables" for a portion of your invested assets. Risk happens fast in 2017.
