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 later.

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 🙂
