The Boyar Value Group’s 1st Quarter Client Letter

The Boyar Value Group just released our latest quarterly letter to clients.

From the perspective of the U.S. stock market, 2022 was a miserable year (with the S&P 500 declining 19.4%), but at first 2023 seemed like it was shaping up to be a less volatile year. January’s performance was particularly impressive, with the S&P 500 advancing more than 6%. In response, market participants cautiously began holding out hope for a soft landing. Then economic data started coming in stronger than expected, causing stocks and bonds to swoon as investors worried that the Fed would have to keep interest
rates higher for longer.


But then, seemingly out of nowhere (the way most crises seem to start), a cryptocurrency lender named Silvergate Capital Corp failed, followed by Silicon Valley Bank—the largest banking collapse in the U.S. since Washington Mutual in 2008. To make things worse, on the heels of the SVB closure, Signature Bank also failed. As a result, bank customers throughout the U.S. who had deposits of more than $250,000 (the FDIC insurance cap) became concerned about the safety of their deposits. Regional banks such as First
Republic, with their larger percentage of uninsured depositors, also experienced massive withdrawals, raising questions about their solvency.
