Outbreaks & Breakouts
In this week’s edition of the LifePro Asset Management Market & Portfolio Review, our head of Wealth Management, Robert Reaburn, will review how LPAM is approaching the recent Coronavirus scare and how moments like these are what set apart successful investors that have a disciplined asset allocation process vs. those that trade based on headlines.
Specifically, Robert will review the spread of the coronavirus across the world and how its virulence compares to that of past outbreaks, along with a comparison to the traditional flu and how stocks have typically responded before and after such outbreak scares. In conjunction with our discussion on the Coronavirus scare, we will be reviewing the short-term price action of the stock market and how overbought and oversold conditions can often determine the initial and continued impact of headline risk on stock prices. Lastly, we will be reviewing how stocks are valued relative to where they were back in 2000 and assess whether current comparisons between the two time periods are reasonable.
We are also going to review the health of the underlying economy by taking a close look at jobless claims, prospects for future inflation as measured by future price expectations, and consumer confidence. Lastly, as we do every week, we will review the health of the credit markets as that provides the foundation for our economy to efficiently transmit money from lenders to borrowers.
