June/July 2019 Economic Outlook

The global economy continues to slow and become more divergent.  While U.S. fundamentals remain healthy, growth can be expected to slow back to trend over the next several quarters due to the fading impact of recent
fiscal stimulus.  Positive fundamentals at this time include jobs, housing, investment, confidence, and stable inflation.

At the same time, rising tensions continue to be a concern, along with the rise in debt levels for consumers, companies, and governments.  The near-term bear market risk appears low, but things can change very quickly. 
Savvy investors will enjoy melt-ups in the markets, as they prepare in advance for the melt-downs. What is true in sports is also true in investing.  The best offense is a strong defense.

 

Risk is not knowing what you’re doing.

– Warren Buffett.
