iPhone 4S is the last, truly well-designed iPhone. Glass front, glass back, metal band. The iPhone 5 was not bad, and certainly better than the 6. A camera that juts out in the back, and “what-were-they-thinking” antenna bands.
In that line of thought, I’m intrigued by these rumors. http://www.macrumors.com/2015/11/16/4-inch-iphone-mid-2016-ihs-kevin-wang/

“Small Stock Premium” – the idea that small stocks outperform large stocks, over time. Reason why? the additional premium compensates you for decreased liquidity & additional volatility.
But the out-performance isn’t as dramatic as some data/charts would lead you to believe. The reason is that the NYSE only recorded a small sample of small stocks before 1972. The sample was small and stocks chosen were beaten down large stocks, one which were more likely to outperform during a bounce back. The data is skewed.
Having said that, Small Cap portfolios (e.g., Dimensional Funds US Small Cap Portfolio) still out-perform large ones in more recent years:
Huge new gov’t budget deal extends the debt ceiling through 2017. After previous partisan fighting and showdowns over the budget, does this smooth-sailing signal the end of austerity? Is the tea party party and their influence waning?
[Or is this simply because Boehner is leaving office and he is conducting business in FU mode?]
Economic recession/downturn is now unlikely. Why? Periods of recession follows periods of excesses, but in the current economy, no such excesses exist (except in the federal gov’t).
But, economic acceleration is also unlikely.
This one strikes closest to home. Also making me think the most about what the heck is going on. Where are we in the economy? Are we in a bubble? The kind that’s going to pop or is this the New Normal.
