Per Stirling Capital Outlook – March

There is an old Wall Street maxim that “the Fed raises rates until they break something”.  The past week’s headlines confirm that it is an adage that continues to stand the test of time.  After all, in the twelve months since the Fed started tightening monetary policy, we have witnessed one of the worst global […]



Per Stirling Volunteers! – The Jeremiah Project

  The Jeremiah Project is a national organization with a mission to disrupt the cycle of poverty for single mothers and their children, two generations at a time.

Per Stirling Capital Outlook – February

Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!  Well, not so much “bears”, at least for the time being. The turn of the calendar to the year 2023 seems to have brought with it the return of animal spirits, and appears to, at least temporarily, have turned equity market leadership on its head. In general, all […]

Per Stirling Volunteers! – Central Texas Food Bank

Per Stirling focused our November Community Initiative on giving to those in need of food this holiday season, through the Central Texas Food Bank.  Due to inflation’s impact on the cost of living, the Central Texas Food Bank is seeing a dramatic increase in demand, with the number of people they’re serving increasing every month. […]



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 […]
