It's Not About the Fed
As markets bottomed in mid-March, the common refrain we hear from those short the market or sitting in cash is that the market is just propped up by the Federal Reserve. While the Federal Reserve’s actions were and are critical for financial stability, today we are going to dispel the notion that stocks are just a function of monetary liquidity and reflect the actual fundamental prospects of the underlying business and how investors partner with an investment firm that focuses on stock selection to tactically position portfolios in the areas of the market that may be positioned to benefit from long term secular growth.
In this week’s edition of the LifePro Asset Management Market & Portfolio Review, our head of Wealth Management, Robert Reaburn, will review recent performance results of our flagship, Tactical Opportunity strategy, what’s driving those results and how we are positioning the portfolio going forward. Afterward, Robert will be assessing the historical impact of job losses on the equity market and how investors can use recent data to their long term investment advantage.
Additionally, Robert will analyze the recent rescue actions of the U.S. Federal Reserve and what those programs did and didn’t do for the economy and investors. Specifically, Robert will go through different market industries and illustrate how the impact of ACTUAL CORPORATE FUNDAMENTALS affect the prices of stocks and how investors can use this data to determine which industries are positioned to win and lose in this stay at home economy. Lastly we will take a look at investor sentiment and overall market momentum to assess the health of the current rally, which can assist with short term portfolio positioning.
