Monday, September 10, 2018: 115F Is Like Baking In An Oven!

The Markets in a Nutshell

DOW +110.68—-NASDAQ +17.11—-SP500 -6.37—-NYSE +64.65

Portfolio Leaders: ISRG, CAT, AEO
Portfolio Laggards: AMZN, BA, AAPL

For the most part, stocks opened in the green this morning. But, the markets have been quite turbulent in September, most likely because of September Swoon and more Trade Tariffs, particularly against China.

Corporate Gig in Palm Desert

Third Coast Jazz played a Corporate Gig this past Saturday at the JW Marriott Resort in Palm Desert, not too far from Palm Springs. We performed 3 sets for Bridgestone Commercial, famous for their Bridgestone tires.

It was a great corporate gig but the weather outside was 115 degrees! It literally felt like we were baking inside an oven! And we were glad to be playing indoors inside the JW Pavillion. For the most part, an easy gig playing mostly Jazz Standards and some R&B.

We had 3 Bridgestone employees come up and sit in with us. It was great to have some talented singers come up and sing for their fellow co-workers. We had Shaina of the Mar Dels sing with us this time and she is great as usual.

Palm Springs area gigs are very nice. It’s a chance to gig out-of-town for a change and it’s not too far away (about 2 hours, 12 minutes from my home).

Today’s Winning Stocks

Back to reality in the stock market world… September Swoon is upon us, historically the time of year when stocks struggle the most. And hopefully, we will start to have a nice rally heading into the holiday season.
