Market Update: 12-28-20

The Issachar Fund (LIONX, BRI & ESG) is 88% invested in 45 growth stocks on Sunday, December 27, 2020.  I took LIONX to a more fully invested position last week as my conviction level increased mainly due to how growth stocks responded to the additional liquidity being generated by the Fed.  The Fed still appears to have its foot on the gas, and the market seems to be okay with creating more and more money out of thin air.  The economy appears to be firing on all cylinders, and President Trump signed a $2.3 trillion bill that avoided a government shutdown.  On Monday, the House will vote to raise the $600 stimulus check to $2,000 that Trump is demanding.  How long can an irresponsible government keep borrowing money without plans to pay it back before the market crushes its currency?  I hope and pray that I am not around when inflation skyrockets and the dollar collapses.  My faith is in God and not the government.  A currency failure could cause life-changing losses that I plan to avoid.  I attempt to manage risk every day in LIONX and decide if the potential risk is worth the potential reward I am seeking.  Currently, I see “risk” as being relatively low for the potential reward I expect.  However, I could change my opinion in a heartbeat if prices collapse.  (There is no guarantee that any investment will achieve its objectives, generate positive returns, or avoid losses.)

The Lyons Family Christmas Vacation was covered in snow!  We rented a high-top van and drove 12 hours to a cabin on top of the highest mountain in Sevierville, TN.  We hiked, fished, zip-lined, and took a helicopter tour over Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and The Great Smokey Mountains.  It was all wonderful and spectacular until we got about a foot of snow at our cabin, then it was stunningly beautiful.  Everything was covered in a white powder of snow for miles in all directions, and God’s majestic beauty took my breath away.  God waited until Christmas day to bless us with such a marvelous view that we will never forget.   I believe God gave us a taste of what heaven might look like, and I can’t wait to see the real thing.  I am so blessed, and I pray God would bless you more than he has blessed me simply because he can and he enjoys doing it.

Bottom Line: LIONX is close to being fully invested, and the market seems to be rewarding us for taking risk.  I am pleased with YTD’s performance, and I expect to finish the year on a good note.  I believe the market will continue to advance higher as long as the Fed keeps its foot on the gas, flooding the market with liquidity and keeping rates near zero.  An upset in the Senate’s balance of power could trigger a market correction, so I will be watching the market’s reaction to the Georgia Senate race on January 5th.  God is still in control; He loves us unconditionally, and that will never change.  I hope and pray that you experience the Love and Peace of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  Amen!    

Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.  2 John 1:3
