Navigating the Recovery
Going through a stock market correction is never easy. It fills us with fear, trepidation, and self-doubt. The key to using stock market pullbacks to our advantage is recognizing that it’s normal to be concerned when volatility is high but also knowing how to compartmentalize these emotions in a way that does not impact our investment decision-making process. Investors that successfully embrace and silo their emotions are able to cut through the noise of the market and approach their investments in a methodical manner, allowing them to target higher long-term returns over time.
In this week’s stock market update, we will walk through how we navigate stock market recoveries. While stock market corrections capture most of the attention in the media, it’s the early recovery period where many investors trip up and make decisions that impair their portfolios. In addition to our weekly performance review, we will also walk through a drawdown analysis for clients and how stock market corrections have impacted returns over time. Second, we will discuss the importance of being invested during the early stages of the recovery and the dangers of chasing stocks that were negatively impacted by the prior crises. Lastly, we will review the short and long-term health of the secular bull market and how credit markets have fared through the recent market turmoil.
