Happy 10th (or maybe 6th) birthday to 'the most hated bull market in history'! This month, we take a look back in time to past bull-market 'weak years' (like 2015 and 2018) and the two years that have followed them; will 2019 and 2020 yield the same historic double-digit return or will this be the year the bull stops running?

This month, we celebrate the ten-year anniversary of the 'devilish low' S&P 500 (a bottom of 666 on March 9th, 2009). Scale forward a few years to 2014 and we were confident there were still another 10,000 points of growth to eke out of the Dow, then at 17,300. So, another 5 years later, how are we doing?

Also, we have our usual portfolio updates along with a stellar 'surprise' January-return for one of our generally-sleepy strategies.
