The past few months have brought with them surprising market lows and highs amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
There were 20.5 million jobs lost in April alone. Our unemployment rate, now at 14.7%, is the highest it has been since World War II.1 The data is likely even worse if you factor in the millions who have dropped out of the workforce entirely as well as those who are underemployed.
Outside of jobless claims, current data on broad economic health has been scant and most companies have stopped providing earnings guidance. That has left economists to make estimates during a period that has no precedent. Over the last several weeks, gross domestic product (GDP) estimates have gradually worsened. Here are a few points we think are important to consider:
This week, we officially entered into bear market territory.1 As the coronavirus continued to spread across the U.S., volatility and uncertainty spread through global markets. Because there are very few comparisons over the last 50 years for what we are now experiencing, the speed at which we reached bear market status was unprecedented. The market has now discounted earnings and valuations of nearly every company regardless of their industry or financial position.
Tim Courtney, Chief Investment Officer at Exencial Wealth Advisors, joined Yahoo! Finance’s On the Move show last week to share his market analysis ahead of the December jobs report release. Tim explained why he expects to see a positive start to the new year based on market fundamentals, strengthening consumer confidence and expected earnings growth. However, he also noted that markets should be prepared for a return to normal levels of volatility this year following a relatively quiet 2019. Tune into his segment here.
It has been almost two months since coronavirus fears sent the stock market into bear territory.1 While we are finally beginning to receive tangible evidence regarding the pandemic’s impact on companies’ profitability, there are still many unknown effects we will be learning about in the months ahead.
At Exencial, our main priority is delivering superior advice and execution, which is why we are thrilled to announce the acquisition of Willingdon Wealth Management.
This year’s contagion in financial markets has been the global spread of zero interest rates to the U.S.1 Until recently, the U.S. was one of the last large economies with meaningfully positive interest rates. However, it took us only a few months to move to near zero.
In the first quarter, we transitioned out of a market that was largely quiet with small daily gains to one that is now characterized by volatility and uncertainty.1
In considering investment opportunities, we should not overlook companies that are capitalizing on the rapid advancements being made in artificial intelligence (AI). AI is the process of programming machines to mirror human intelligence, using skills such as learning and problem solving to complete tasks.1
