Investor’s Advantage Risk-O-Meter
April 2021 Economic Outlook
The economy is in position to capture momentum the last half of this year, thanks to greater vaccine distribution, S&P 500 earnings expected to reach all-time highs, and the combination of central bank and government stimulus.
However, equity markets have been on an unprecedented run since March 2020 and what is also at an all-time high are the debt levels for consumers, companies, and countries. Which suggests there is a strong possibility for a serious correction in coming months. Since investors do not need to see the future to prepare for it, now is the perfect opportunity to determine how much loss is acceptable, followed by designing portfolios in such fashion that accounts become defensive when appropriate.
