President Donald Trump hasn’t yet made his mark on the U.S. economy, despite the euphoria on one side and the dread of the other that greeted his election, said Brian Wesbury, chief economist for First Trust Advisors. Wesbury and his deputy, Bob Stein, are winners of the MarketWatch Forecaster of the Month contest for May.
“We try not to let political emotions affect our macro outlook,” Wesbury said in an interview. “We wait for real policy changes” before changing the forecast.
I have been using Blue Vault Partners for the past five years. I have found them to be a valuable, unbiased resource when it comes to evaluating and comparing non-traded REITs. The reports help me analyze which sponsors are doing a responsible job of managing their offerings. This allows me to limit my REIT recommendations to only the most competitive products, and then track those REITs throughout their life cycle.
