At month end, the first of the tariffs took effect with the markets basically going sideways while trying to figure the impact. My impression is the first industry to be impacted (via retaliation) will be the lobster industry. Other industries will be later as the supply chains run off. Even the US dollar is taking the noise in stride resuming its’ ascent. Finally, the CCAR results were released with approval of the majority of the capital return plans of the banking sector (additional dividend growth on the horizon). Through this I generally stayed the course, the only exception being the implementation of a hedge on two mergers. June saw a rise in the S&P of 0.48% while my portfolio underperformed by registering a rise of 0.14%. YTD I still lag the S&P by 0.69%.
