The smart money is piling back in.” That’s what I wanted to think. But the facts tell a different story … and prove why smart investors ignore short-term moves like these.

In June 2020, Barstool Sports founder and wannabe investor Dave Portnoy infamously said that “stocks only go up.” In 2022? Sorry Dave. In today’s video, Ted Bauman walks us through the consequences of the Fed’s recent hawkish turn. Even after big declines since the beginning of the year, there’s plenty of overvaluation in the market still.
