Yes indeed....

S&P 500 Earnings are up for 2018 and projected slower growth in 2019 of 8% - 10%

Cash Flows of the dividend paying companies I track are improving, although some have slowed into the 4Q18.

Fed Interest Rate expected to remain unchanged at least through first 2Q19

Depressed Energy prices expected to continue through first 2Q19

December correction most likely due to programmed year-end selling for institutional portfolio rebalancing, profit taking and individual tax loss selling...not counterbalanced by buyers who are on vacation right now.

Bottom line: a selective buying opportunity for those paying attention.

For the political dope-smoking left wing Bernie Sanders Nihilists, tis the season to squeal, make ignorant remarks and sustain their socialist diatribe.
