Market Commentary | March 21
So there’s this banking crisis in progress, in case you haven’t heard. But as hundreds of articles have been penned on the subject recently, we will just acknowledge it and mostly move on. It is “interesting” to note that the Fed had identified serious weaknesses with Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) beginning back in 2021, according […]
Market Briefing: Will earnings hold up?
One of the most hotly contested issues concerning the stock market today is whether earnings will hold up in the face of inflation, a tightening Fed, and rising wages. With 99% of S&P 500® companies having reported 4th quarter 2022 earnings as of March 3rd, here’s an update on where earnings stand and how Frontier […]
March 2023 Capital Markets Perspective
January’s jubilation gave way to February’s malaise (everything was down) as the now familiar theme of “market starting to believe the Fed” played out.

Market Briefing: What will inflation be in 2023?
Inflation was the big story in 2022, but what will inflation be in 2023? More of the same high inflation or something different? Something slightly unexpected has been happening with inflation. Since July of 2022, inflation appears to have abruptly returned to “normal.” What is normal? If inflation continues as it has for the last […]
Fourth Quarter 2022: Capital Markets Perspective
It’s over. 2022 that is. Whether the pain in capital markets is over is a different, and unanswerable question, but 2023 is unlikely to play out in the same way given the dramatically different starting point in terms of rates. On New Year’s Eve 2021, the yield on the 10-year Treasury stood at 1.52%. Fast […]
