Week in Review Process

Week in Review | financial news, news review, foreign affairs and economic commentary

Week in Review

The day begins at 5:00 a.m., as Brian Trumbore reads some 15 papers online, as well as hard copies of two or three other journals, to glean all the financial news as well as geopolitical items from around the world to begin to build the week in review. Throughout the day, it’s a non-stop news review, in essence, as the financial news piles up.

At 4:00 p.m., it’s time to review many of the same online sources following the market’s close, and then around 7:30 p.m., its back to some of the other global sources, plus over 20 business and political journals that arrive weekly and monthly for more financial news and foreign affairs, all part of the week in review. Then the next morning it starts all over again, seven days a week.

Week in review is the only column of its kind that truly supplies one with all the geopolitical and financial news that both the average investor and follower of the world scene needs to compete in our information age.  Online Investor magazine rated No. 1 for economic commentary for 2000-2002 and we’ve only gotten better since.

Updated every Saturday, check out week in review, available only at Edited by Brian Trumbore.

Yankees and Mets

The new baseball season begins this week, and for New York area fans, the buzz surrounds the Yankees because of their acquisition of slugger Giancarlo Stanton.  In polls of fan support, generally there are twice as many Yankees fans as Mets fans these days, but this is largely because the Yankees have had more success than the Metropolitans.

So I thought I’d look at the last few years...the team’s record and attendance

Yankees...W/L Record...Annual Attendance (in millions)

2009... 103-59 ...3.7...won World Series
2010...   95-67 ...3.8
2011...   97-65 ...3.7
2012...   95-67... 3.5
2013...   85-77 ...3.3
2014...   84-78 ...3.4
2015...   87-75 ...3.2
2016...   84-78 ...3.1
2017...   91-71 ...3.2


2009...   70-92 ...3.2
2010...   79-83 ...2.6
2011...   77-85 ...2.4
2012...   74-88 ...2.2
2013...   74-88 ...2.1
2014...   79-83 ...2.1
2015...   90-72 ...2.6
2016...   87-75 ...2.8
2017...   70-92 ...2.5

Meanwhile, the Yankees’ ticket & suite revenue peaked in 2009 at $397 million and slid to $228 million in 2016 ($235m last season), while for the Mets, during the above period, the Mets had top revenue of $180 million in 2009, bottoming at $117m in 2014, while rising to $168m in 2016 (the last year available).

But both teams had similar net operating income last season, $39m for the Yanks, $32m for the Mets, owing to the fact the Yankees have traditionally had a payroll about double that of the Mets, though the Yanks have been looking to cut back some (Giancarlo Stanton’s huge contract aside).
