There was a lot of cheering in the stock market on the passing and signing of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) on December 22, 2017. The reduction in corporate tax rates from 35% to 21% meant that a lot more profit was set to fall right onto the bottom lines of companies far and wide.

Later, I'll show you how our focus on the positive market forces I’ve been identifying is panning out for our Toll Takers, our REITs our financials (including our newest banking buy). I’ll also answer some of your questions and provide updates to all our portfolios.
