With the shopping frenzy of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we now turn to #GivingTuesday which is a day of charitable giving. Started back in 2012, this important day has been growing by leaps and bounds. In 2014, non-profits raised $45 million and that figure grew to over $300 million in 2017!!! Now that is some great impact. However, if you consider that online sales from Cyber Monday topped $7.9 billion, we still have a long way to go to catch up. Imagine the positive change, if those numbers were reversed.

Alibaba had another incredible sales day with a reported $30.8 billion in sales in 24 hours, its 10th annual Singles' Day sale. The growth actually slowed to 27% which was the slowest growth for the Chinese internet giant. The sales number dwarfs the revenue from all US retailers during Black Friday ($5 billion in 2017), Cyber Monday ($6.6 billion in 2017) and Amazon Prime Day ($4.7 billion in 2018) combined. That is an incredible feat and shows the power of the Chinese consumers.

This is an issue that investors have never seen before. Typically government spending is restrained at the end of an economic expansion; however, this administration is stepping on the accelerator with neither party emphasizing fiscal responsibility. This could pose a huge problem if a recession hits over the next couple of years.

October has been a rough month for the stock market with the recent downdraft wiping out index gains for the entire year. The deterioration has been rapid despite a strong earnings season and overall S&P earnings increasing by nearly 30 percent. It is highly unusual for earnings and stock prices to diverge to this extent. Something is obviously deeply troubling investors, and we wonder if the Fed is triggering the start to the next bear market?
