The COVID-19 and Markets site is intended to house a daily missive from David Bahnsen, Chief Investment Officer at The Bahnsen Group. While the weekly Dividend Cafe has served as macro-commentary for many years covering a wide array of topics and principles and best practices for investors, this COVID and Markets site will specifically focus on daily nuggets around the health data, market realities, policy developments, and economic ramifications of this coronavirus era. The intention is for this site and daily endeavor to cease when we are on the other side of all this, and quite frankly, the hope and prayer is that that moment come sooner than later.

So expect a DAILY missive at covidandmarkets.com for the foreseeable future,
And expect a WEEKLY commentary at dividendcafe.com until Kingdom come.
