  1. TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

    Stocks slipped this week as the Senate put out their version of the tax bill which had a few significant contrasts with the House version. One contrast is the Senate plan would delay the corporate tax-rate cut until 2019 rather than 2018. This put some heat on smaller companies dropping the expected increase in earnings next year with the tax-cuts. Large caps pulled back as well but not with the magnitude of small caps.
