Jeff Raupp, CFA, Senior Investment Manager
On this week’s podcast (recorded August 1, 2016), Jeff covers the current themes impacting markets, including Brexit, earnings season, and the presidential election. Highlights of his discussion include:
- Since the initial negative reaction from the Brexit vote in late June, markets have rebounded sharply, with U.S. stocks up over 15% since the June 27 lows and international stocks up over 10%.
- Late summer and fall loom as somewhat of an information void, where economic data is a little sparser and investors have a harder time seeing the impetus for the next leg up in the market.
- It wouldn’t be surprising to see a pause in the upward momentum in the markets until we get more clarity about the direction of the election.
- This past week, housing, earnings, employment and wages all had positive reports, but were offset by a very disappointing GDP number.
