April 2017 Cash Surplus: $206B

I can’t make any promises…time has been scarce as of late, but hoping to just post the chart today and give a more detailed analysis┬álater.

Looking at the month, revenues were solid and timing issues compared to last year brought down expenses as expected, but don’t worry, we’ll be back to even 5/1. Regardless…A $206B surplus isn’t too shabby, so let’s enjoy it for just a moment :).

Looking at the year through 4 months, revenues are up about 1.5%, nothing impressive, but we’ll take it. The outlays are down, but that’s a little misleading, come tomorrow’s 5/1 report the timing issue will fall off and we should be back in the +3% range.

All together…this was a decent month…nothing earth shattering but sometimes simply not being terrible can be a really big win ­čÖé
