We're Just Getting Started
For as much as we talk about long term fundamentals, investment psychology remains the largest factor that ultimately determines long term investment success. We often talk about the fear of loss during scary times like the March bear market or the 2008 global financial crises, but the reality is that the fear of giving up our gains is just as powerful of an emotion that can lead to us to prematurely reducing our exposure during the early innings of a bull market.
Our work suggests that we are in the second inning of this bull market recovery, so the message is that we’re just getting started with this recovery, and we see an attractive long term investment landscape over the next 3-5 years. Now is the time to opportunistically invest in America’s best and brightest companies, that are going from good to great over the next decade.
In this week’s market update, we are going to study the current stock market recovery and compare the price action, investor sentiment, and overall rhetoric with that of the 2009 stock market lows. Our goal is to understand what history suggests about the sustainability of current market gains and, just as important, the prospects for future growth after periods of strong performance of a bear market bottom. We are going to review the recent asset rotation away from areas of secular growth and toward cyclical junk stocks, and how we expect this to impact client portfolios. Lastly, we will review the health of the credit markets along with an update on corporate earnings, one month into reporting season.
