Investor’s Advantage Risk-O-Meter
October/November 2020 Economic Outlook
Again, given the indicators we monitor suggest caution, and recent economic data has improved confidence, recent market volatility is a reminder that there is considerable uncertainty surrounding the outlook for corporate profits and economic recovery.
By some measures, valuations are now at the highest levels in two decades. Which makes it reasonable to expect more moderate returns ahead and an earnings recovery to occur that are key for markets to take the next step higher.
Many savvy investors report that they hate losses more than they love gains. While everyone would like a V shaped recovery, there will likely be permanent scars, to include persistent unemployment. Which makes identifying defensive strategies that might help keep assets more intact during a severe downturn an idea whose time has come.
