“Collapse” is the most frightening word in any investor’s vocabulary. It refers to a steep and sudden decline in stock prices much larger than the standard -20% definition of a bear market. Fortunately, such collapses are rare. But they all have one thing in common: liquidity — the presence of willing buyers — evaporates. In today’s video , I explain how these dreaded events occur … and what to watch for when one threatens.
Two powerful forces have closed in on growth stocks: The Fed and the pandemic. But, what does this mean for the rest of the market? Are we seeing a dot-com peak followed by a waterfall decline … or is this just a rotation that smart investors can profit from? In today’s Your Money Matters, Ted Bauman and Clint Lee discuss the fall of growth indexes, the Fed’s tapering timeline and how you can protect and grow your portfolio.
The narrative around the Fed’s increasingly hawkish stance is that it’s reacting to consumer price inflation. That’s part of it, but I’m convinced Powell & Co. are playing at a much bigger game. Ever since the great financial crisis, asset markets have become unhealthily dependent on easy money. Besides exacerbating inequality, artificially inflated asset markets are prone to bubbles and bust. That’s why the most incisive market watchers have been saying for a long time that the Fed’s biggest challenge is to end this dependency once and for all. If that’s what the Fed is doing, how’s it going to affect markets? More importantly, which assets will suffer, and which will prosper?
2022 looks to be an interesting year for investors: a swift market rotation, continued inflation woes, volatility, midterm elections and at least three wild cards in the mix. To survive and thrive through it all, you must start with the big picture. Then you drill down to find the big profits. That’s what Ted Bauman and Clint Lee do for you in this first 2022 edition of Your Money Matters. Watch now to hear what both expect of this year and the six exchange-traded funds they recommend.
(3-minute read) No one has a crystal ball to predict the future. But one thing is certain in 2022: We’ll always be dedicated to helping you slay the Wall Street bullies — and the market…
