Wit & Wisdom – 6/19/2019

Good morning. I apologize for such a disjointed note today as I am catching a morning flight to L.A. and getting ready to do half the macarena to make sure I have wallet, phone, iPad, headphones, tickets and keys before I head out the door.

Good morning. Stocks are up sharply this morning on the heels of a Trump announcement that he will have an extended meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping during the G-20 summit next week in Japan.
