I do these kind of recap things only when I remember to post on my blog, and I remember to post on my blog about once a year. So it actually works out perfectly. I just wish I could remember to post on my blog on December 31 instead of July 12.
It’s now been more than a year since the S&P 500 hit its pandemic low on March 23, 2020. As I detailed in March of last year, I was fortunate enough to make some extremely timely investments on the exact day the market bottomed.
Well, what can I say about the first half of 2020? I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say that was probably the worst six months of many people’s lives. Incredibly, it didn’t end up being the worst six months for the stock market at all. The Federal Reserve stepped up and essentially said they…

I didn’t really know what to expect from the experience, but it turned out to be a really cool conversation about the market, retail stock trading strategy and the financial media (that’s me). In my opinion, Allen did a great…
Since I’m posting for the first time in over a year, I thought it would be a cool idea to post a collection of my most read Benzinga articles of the past year. Mind you, I don’t necessarily think these are my 10 best stories, just the 10 stories that got the most page views.…
I’m ashamed at how long it’s been since I’ve updated my blog. I promise I haven’t just been screwing around. I’ve had some awesome work opportunities through U.S. News & World, Benzinga and InvestorPlace. I also recently bought a house, so I’ve really been using the weekends to fully recharge.
