Stop Fighting the Recovery!
Successful investing is about positioning portfolios to succeed in the future, not the past. While COVID-19 continues to impact and challenge the world, successful investing will require us to look beyond the present, assess what the world will like in a post COVID recovery and what types of businesses are positioned to thrive in such a world.
After a few weeks of consolidation, the portfolios reaccelerated to the upside this past week, as corporate earnings catch up to the expansion of forward earnings multiples. The companies we are invested in have successfully navigated COVID crises, and based on our work, are positioned to dominate the recovery. As of August 26th, the LPAM Tactical Opportunity portfolio has delivered growth of +59.88% net of fees vs. a +7.67% rate of return for the S&P 500 and a decline of -0.72% for the DOW Jones Industrial Average over the same time period.
In this week’s market update, we are going to review the historical impact of U.S. elections on stock market performance and whether the fear lives up to the hype. Second, we are going to assess the health of the stock market recovery by looking under the hood to measure how much of the stock market is participating in the recovery, along with a discussion over investor fund flows and what that historically means for stock prices. Lastly, our discussion will end with a review of the credit markets and what implied credit risk levels are telling us about the durability of the recovery.
