Investment Insights Podcast: Expectation for Positive Trend to Continue

Hart_Podcast_338x284Chris Hart, Senior Vice President

On this week’s podcast (recorded October 14, 2016), Chris provides a market update as we inch closer to the end of the year. Listen in as he discusses recent market performance and what we should look forward to.

Quick hits:

  • Dollar strength on the heels of a potential rate hike in December has been a headwind and weighed on stocks.
  • Despite being almost 90 months into a bull market with a 222% gain for the S&P 500, the second longest on record, the market is not showing many signs of topping out.
  • Stock valuations are elevated, but not alarmingly.
  • Our intermediate-term outlook remains positive and we don’t see many signs of recession in the near- to intermediate-term, but we do recognize that this a late-cycle bull market and risks remain.

Investment Insights Podcast – April 22, 2015

Bill MillerBill Miller, Chief Investment Officer

On this week’s podcast (recorded April 16, 2015), Bill provides an update from last week’s podcast and focuses on how companies are managing earnings:

Here are some of the highlights:

  • Two weeks into the earnings seasons, with 10% of S&P 500 companies reporting, news is surprisingly good
  • Expectations were down due to lower oil prices and strong dollar
  • It’s still early! Many reports are in from the financial sector but still waiting on materials, energy and industrials sectors
  • Initial earnings skewed by a few standout companies reporting strong quarters
  • If good sales growth and good earnings guidance continues, stock market could still perform well despite higher valuations.
