Nothing that overly surprised me in this — but then again I spend an inordinate amount of time reading about these cameras. {SMILE}

That it was rated below the Sony a6500 is fair and what I would have expected — given that I, few months ago, decided to get a Sony a6500 over the Canon M5, because just in terms of the raw specs, the a6500 was a more powerful, capable camera.

Some in the DPReview Forums have alluded that maybe this was a ‘generous’, ‘kind’ review — probably given that this is indeed THE holidays. That could be. But, I don’t think there is anything majorly to quarrel about on this review — one way or another.

Next Week, Year End 2016, On The Stock Market — My Take.

by Anura Guruge


Dow ’30’, 1:20pm on Wednesday, December 21, 2016, ‘The Solstice’ — trying but failing to flirt with Dow 20,000.

The U.S. Stock Market, next week, December 27 – 30, in my opinion is going to rater STRANGE.

For a start, with Monday (Boxing Day) a holiday in lieu of Christmas Day (falling on a Sunday) it is going to be a short week (albeit not with stocks getting shorted) — with most likely very THIN volumes.

Whether the Dow hits, or is over, 20,000 is not going to matter most.

But, we are going to see another Trump effect!

Typically this is the week that savvy investors rebalance their portfolio to exploit CAPITAL GAINS — or more to the point CAPITAL LOSSES.

But, this year that is going to be different.

By and large, unless you have been very unlucky or imprudent, there isn’t going to be that much Capital Losses around! The market has done well. {SMILE}

Plus, most people MUST BELIEVE that Trump, in his first year, i.e., 2017, will REDUCE Capital Gains tax.

So why sell in 2016. Wait to see what Trump does in 2017.

That will be a MAJOR FACTOR.

So, I, for one, do NOT expect to see much CAPITAL GAINS/LOSSES related selling next week. We might see some in the first week of January.

And then there will be the CUSTOMARY ‘Window Dressing’ by the Stock Fund Managers, who yet again (as tends to be their wont), got it WRONG. So that will fuel another wave of buying.

That is my take. Not that I plan to do much next week. I am all set — thank you. {SMILE}

Have some BIG options expiring next year.

Happy Holidays.
