Fishing Trips Update

We’ve had some great trips so far this year. We went on Whale Magic Tours to see the grey whales spawning, fished in San Quintin Bay, caught Lobster off Catalina, and just got back from fishing in Gonzaga Bay.

Upcoming Fishing Trips 

With a few trips under our belt, we are heading out of the fishing show season with some spots still available. We have more spots available on 4 of our remaining 6 trips for the year. If you want to go on a trip that is full, let us know. If anyone has something come up and a spot opens, you can come along.

Mutual Fund Landscape Through 2018

Each year, Dimensional Funds analyzes returns from a large sample of US-based mutual funds. The objective is to assess the performance of mutual fund managers relative to benchmarks.  This year’s study updates results through 2018. The evidence shows that a majority of fund managers in the sample failed to deliver benchmark-beating returns after costs.  The results of this research provide a strong case for relying on market prices when making investment decisions.
