Educational Segment. How to play the market if you are risk adverse in 2017. Are Trump policies coming in or not? Over the last 10 years the marginal tax rate for corporations has come down from 50% in 1955 to 35% recently. Analysts expect 22% earnings growth from the S&P. The PE of the S&P is 21 times. It is a 23% world GDP economy. The banks have been the big leader since the election. It’s going to take a lot of interest rate hike to get the banks back to where they should be with interest rate spreads. There is a new president, first term, new party. The average pattern has half a percent gain. We have already exceeded that. The inauguration is pretty much the high point for the year. Get into options late in the market cycle.
