Stuff the Bird … and Your Portfolio
If your family is like mine, Thanksgiving signals the start of the holiday season. Each year, we have a traditional Thanksgiving feast, watch the Washington vs. Washington State football game (go Huskies!) and I even reluctantly brave the crowds for Black Friday deals.
Whatever your family traditions are, I hope it includes spending time with the people you love the most.
And if you do find yourself with a quiet moment during the holiday break, I suggest you take a look (or a second look) at these three recent articles of mine. Each is as relevant now as it was when first published.
In 2020, Americans drove 470 million fewer miles than the year prior. But the prices of fossil fuels have rebounded and are now surging to multiyear highs.
Modern vehicles are essentially high-tech computers on wheels. As car manufacturers wait out the semiconductor shortage, potential profits are primed for the taking.
In 1956, President Eisenhower signed an act creating the U.S. Interstate Highway System. The legislation came with $25 billion in initial funding, making it the nation’s largest public works project at that time. Fast-forward 65 years and President Biden is making infrastructure a key focus once again.
These trends are still set to be big in 2022, so you can beat the rush into them.
Have a great Thanksgiving and stay safe!
