Portfolio Review 4Q20

Few will regret the passing of Anno Domino 2020, though investors per se for the most part did well. (This letter focuses on investments, without any callousness to other considerations.) The U.S. stock indices closed at highs; global equity indices, gold, bonds, real estate, all closed at or near highs. This apparent dichotomy between the economy, slammed by restrictions imposed as a response to covid, and markets is explained (as we have before) quite simply: when central banks around the world create excess credit, that new “money” has to go somewhere, and it has gone, for the most part into stocks and other investments.
