Looking Past the Election
As investors, we are constantly bombarded with noise, fear, and pessimism, which can be overwhelming and lead to sub-optimal investment decisions. In an election year that will be dominated by emotion, divisiveness, and political partisanship, it’s easy for those emotions to sidetrack our investment thought process and lose track of the big picture.
The bottom line is that as we enter the month of September, the economic recovery is intact, interest rates and inflation are low, there is abundant financial liquidity, and corporate fundamentals continue to improve. As a result, we are positioning client portfolios for a continued move higher in asset prices to close out the year.
In this week’s market update, we are going to review the historical impact of elections on stock market performance, along with a discussion on how market trends impact market seasonality in the month of September. Additionally, we will be taking a look at mobility trends in the US, credit market trends, and a detailed look at how the stock market is behaving and what that tells us about the durability of the current stock market rally.
