Our baseline scenario -- we head into the new year is for slow.
But steady growth coupled with low inflation.
And reasonable at a reasonable and attractive valuations of equities.
Now Gary let me get you to respond to that outlook because I understand your more positive on the market because of the Clinton.

About what's happening in retail this holiday season what what are you sensing about.

Speaking of -- Gary -- -- apple is one of the companies are bullish on even if shares have come down ninety bucks of late.
Where's the upside where -- see this trajectory.
Going higher I have three sons on their twenties and their merits of the apple ecosystem for I think years the com and I and you know I think Apple's a play that it's not gonna be the -- that people talk about I think Apple's got a place in the the public's mind.
That's going to be tough to remove.
Still at the recent declines is this an entry point around 520 share.

I agree the trend line that points to homebuilders.
Enjoying a nice ride and you're seeing that it's been it it was priced into the market that probably about two quarters ago.

All right one last comment from you Gary Marx I need to ask any direct questions just the way it all sort -- this hour big theory.
Remaining time here what's your -- asset allocation.
Right now worry allocating that I saw on model balanced portfolio columnists would be about 43% in equities that would be split equally between domestic and foreign.
We're about 15% traditional vines were about 30% non traditional bonds we like credits like junk and mortgage reits.
And were -- 10% real assets that would be energy and alt keys.
Are precious metals and we're about 2% cash.
