Goins_PodcastAndrew Goins, Investment Manager

On this week’s podcast (recorded March 3, 2017), Andrew provides an update on key asset classes. Quick hits:

  • The market had gone 55 trading days without a plus or minus 1% move, which is the 18th longest streak since 1950.
  • Within Domestic equity markets, we’ve seen a shift in leadership from energy and financials in the 4th quarter to health care and technology.
  • International markets have also participated in the market rally so far in 2017, with the MSCI EAFE Index, a proxy for international developed markets, up 4.80%
  • Within Fixed Income, we’ve seen more volatility as the yield on the 10-year treasury has occulated between 2.32% and 2.51%, but interestingly is currently only 2bps higher than where we started at the beginning of the year.
  • We are keeping a close eye on many economic indicators and the rhetoric coming out of Washington, as well as the underlying company fundamentals.
