The S&P 500 Could Rise Another 38%

The S&P 500 Could Rise Another 38%

This week investors witnessed an event that hasn’t been seen in over a decade.

Many portend that when this phenomenon occurs, a recession may be looming.

This event is an inverted Treasury yield curve.

An inverted yield curve is a rare occurrence when short-term interest rates rise above long-term interest rates.

Inverted Yield Curve

This inversion occurs when investors believe an economic slowdown is possible, so they seek longer-term investments for safer keeping.

This increased demand for longer-term bonds cause their yields to fall. That pushes yields on short-term notes and bills higher, making them more appealing to investors.

This is the first time the yield gap between the two- and five-year Treasurys has turned negative since before the Great Recession.

But a compelling chart posted by Bloomberg, courtesy of Sundial Capital Research, shows a different, bullish perspective.

The S&P 500 Has Room to Grow

The chart below depicts how the S&P 500 Index performed after two past Treasury-yield reversals. The first noted reversal was in 1998, the second in 2005.

Per Bloomberg data, in both cases the S&P 500 continued to move higher for nearly two years before hitting its peak, capturing gains of 38% after the 1998 yield curve inversion and 24% post 2005’s yield curve inversion.

Of course, past performance is not indicative of future results. But this chart may predict that the S&P 500 has room to grow.

“I bought my first Of Paul’s stocks Nov. 1, 2017. I’m happy to say that I’m ahead $14,000. That’s more then 1/3 of what I invested with my money, and in 9 months. Thank you, Paul, you’re the real deal.”

“Thirteen of my positions are up well over 50% in less than a year since joining your service. Two are in the triple digits with several close behind. My personal money manager, who works for one of the largest banks in the country, is envious of my gains. I never dreamed this was possible. My trips to China to teach English to young Chinese students is now much more affordable. Thank you for your dedication and help.”
