So is this great and wide immortal sea wherein are things innumerable.
So, says Holy Scripture, the sea shall give up her dead.
There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein.
- Psalm 104

are out-performing the "quant King" AQR Capital Management who says "The year 2018 saw cheapening across many asset classes, and compared to last year expected returns are somewhat higher for equities, U.S. Treasuries and credit. However, from a historical perspective, nearly all long-only investments still have low expected real returns. The expected real return of the traditional U.S. 60/40 portfolio is 2.9%, compared to a long-term average of 5% (since 1900 1 ).'

Do you know?
In April, 2016, the cost of shipping one 40-foot container from Hong Kong to Los Angeles fell to $623, the lowest rate in five years.
In other words, you could have packed your bed, sofa, shelves, dining room table, chest of drawers and all your clothes in a 40-foot container and shipped it across the Pacific Ocean at half the price you'd pay to put it all on a truck and send it from Los Angeles to New York.
Protecting Freedom of the Seas (and skies) does not come without effort. We Invest heavily in defense and aerospace business segments to keep trade goods flowing. Our partner firms engage in Aeronautics - research, design, development, manufacture, integration, sustainment, support and upgrade of military aircraft, including combat and air mobility aircraft, unmanned air vehicles and related swarm technologies.

The Baltic Dry Index (BDI) is a shipping and trade index created by the London-based Baltic Exchange that measures changes in the cost to transport various raw materials. The exchange directly contacts shipping brokers to assess price levels for a given route, product to transport and time to delivery, or speed. The Baltic Dry Index is a composite of three subindices that measure different sizes of dry bulk carriers, or merchant ships: Capesize, Panamax and Supramax.
