Leaning Against the Crowd

Investing can be hard because it elicits emotions with every market gyration and because we as humans value acceptance of others. Unlike social advancement, the most effective investing often occurs at the point of maximum discomfort, as our friends and family remind us of how crazy our decision is. As the month of April comes to an end, the advancement of stock prices has been met with anger and at best, indifference. The good news is that durable stock market bottoms are often born amidst a of sea of hate and disbelief, no matter the cause.

In this week’s edition of the LifePro Asset Management Market & Portfolio Review, our head of Wealth Management, Robert Reaburn, will focus on market sentiment after a month of rising stock prices and more importantly, the actions of investors in the form of investor flows. Investor sentiment and flow action is a critical element of identifying durable market bottoms verses false bear market rallies and vice versa during bull markets. In conjunction with our investor sentiment analysis, we will also provide a quick COVID-19 update and a performance update for our flagship Tactical Opportunity strategy.

Additionally, we will conduct a credit market health check to assess the impact of recent Federal Reserve emergency programs to stabilize financial markets and decrease broad solvency risks. Lastly, we will take a look at the health of the overall rally, measure the scale and depth of the market advancement and what similar rallies off bear market bottoms have meant for stock prices in the past.
