A Rising Tide Lifting All Boats
In this week’s edition of the LifePro Asset Management Market & Portfolio Review, our head of Wealth Management, Robert Reaburn, runs through the recent U.S. labor market report and what it’s telling us about the overall health of the U.S. economy and whether it’s justifying the recent highs achieved in the stock market.
Robert also reviews short and long-term investor positioning in the stock and bond market, to help us gauge the level of speculative activity taking place in the U.S. stock market and what that means for prospective returns and overall client portfolio positioning. Additionally, we review the health of the U.S. credit markets and walk clients through how we use the credit markets to help determine market positioning and portfolio construction decisions such as sector allocation.
We also review the level of liquidity in the U.S. economy and how the current direction of liquidity growth impacts future stock market returns and how that impacts the probability of returns in the future. Lastly, we take a look at relative asset class valuations and how the recent price action in asset classes affects our view on asset allocation going forward.
