We observe RISING yields, particularly in the Treasury area, after eight out of twelve storms and the last six storms in a row. We think that points to overall better insurance coverage as well as quicker response by Federal agencies with relief dollars. This response translates, of course, into a higher level of economic activity in the years after a storm, and the bond markets perceive a potentially higher level of inflation.“–Cumberland Advisors
