Positioning Against the Grain
As human beings, we seek the acceptance of others and it’s a trait that has enabled collaboration and led our species to flourish and build advanced civilizations. Unfortunately, these traits also work against our ability to successfully position our money for long term investment success. To succeed in investing, we have to learn to invest against the grain, seek quality assets that others are discarding, and be opportunistic during times of uncertainty and fear. Now is the time to be opportunistic.
As the stock market continues to consolidate and catch its breath after a strong rally over the summer, it’s important to know that under the noisy surface of the pessimistic media, the economic recovery is quietly marching forward, and the companies that populate our client portfolios are reporting strong revenue and earnings growth. Over time, improving fundamentals outweigh the short term noise and we expect that to result in a continued rise in asset prices.
In this week’s market update, we are going to review what the Federal Reserve had to say on Wednesday and what it means for interest rates and asset prices moving forward. We are also going to review how investors are positioned in the market, how different asset classes are behaving, and what these symptoms may be trying to tell investors about the health and sustainability of the economic recovery. Lastly, as we do every week, we are going to review the credit markets to ensure that the monetary foundation of the economy remains in good health.
