Acting with Conviction During an Era of Hesitation
One person’s hesitation is another person’s window of opportunity. In an era dominated by fear, uncertainty, and an endless trail of excuses of what can’t be done, investors with an active approach to investing are partnering with companies that are prospering off the hesitation of others and setting the stage for long term growth.
After a strong second quarter, the rally in stock market prices is met with a wall of disbelief and skepticism. From a historical point of view, this sort of behavior is unremarkable and consistent with the early innings of a bull market with low investor participation. For existing and prospective investors, the early innings of a bull market represent an attractive time to put new money to work.
In today’s market review, we are going to recap performance in Q2 for the LPAM Tactical Opportunity strategy and the factors that drove the results. Just as important, we will discuss what needs to happen, based on our work, for the market to continue moving upward in the second of 2020 and why headline valuation numbers can mislead investors during a recovery. Second, we are going to talk about why the process of scientific stock selection will become increasingly important in a world dominated by money printing. Lastly, we will wrap up the conversation on what the credit markets are telling us about the health of America’s economic foundation.
