Recessionmongers are sounding the alarm this week.
China’s finance ministry announced it would retaliate against the latest round of tariffs from Washington.
That news sent U.S. stock futures lower this week. They recovered some ground from Thursday to Friday after retail giants such as Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT) reported positive growth.
But August has already seen the S&P 500 Index’s biggest drop so far in 2019.
Most of the S&P 500’s companies have reported negative second-quarter earnings.
Analysts are projecting that earnings per share for the third quarter could look much worse. As we know, two quarters in the red typically send signals of a recession through the markets.
After two quarters of negative growth, many market watches are calling for the start of another recession.
But the news isn’t all bad. In fact, many analysts point to positive growth in other areas. Retail spending is up. Unemployment remains low and wages are increasing.
Our experts see signs that this pullback won’t keep the bulls down — and stocks won’t remain in August’s trenches for long.
Matt Badiali: 3 Ways to Buy the Dip

Folks should have exposure to gold and gold stocks. I recommend the SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) for gold. The VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (NYSE: GDX) or VanEck Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (NYSE: GDXJ) are great investments for gold miners.
