Per Stirling Capital Outlook – November

The Fed is changing gears, or so it appears.  Indeed, after being very late in joining the battle against inflation, largely due to their disastrous premises that inflation was only “transitory”, and that it was being caused primarily by the reopening of the global economy from the COVID-related shut-down, the Fed’s rationale was that inflation […]

Per Stirling Volunteers! – Back to School

It’s hard to believe that summer vacation is coming to an end, and that it’s already time for kids to go back to school. This year, Per Stirling focused the month of July on donating funds and school supplies to students and classrooms. Every year school teachers are left to their own devices to cover the cost […]
