Digesting the Past, Looking to the Future

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

Investing in Artificial Intelligence

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

Market Touchpoint

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.

Market Volatility Update March 12, 2020

Obviously, as everyone knows, this has been a very volatile week. I am trying to think of another time where we have seen markets this volatile. The closest one that comes to mind is the fourth quarter of 2008, but even this eclipses it. This is unique in that the market is trying to wrap its arms around an issue that we really have not had to deal with which is, 'exactly how much is this virus going to cost, not only in human lives, but in economic damage?'

Coronavirus Commentary

When it comes to market declines, one of the foremost jobs of an advisor is to keep a level head in times like this. At Exencial, a chief part of our value proposition is to ensure disciplined execution of a calculated investment strategy in both good and challenging markets. In short, our role is to execute on the things that we and our clients can control.

Observations and Actions in Light of Recent Market Activity

This week saw several more days of volatile moves up and down, and it looks like stock markets will be ending the week at about the same level at which they began. The markets are continuing to try to determine how much economic damage is being done by COVID-19, and market volatility is likely here to stay until more clarity is evidenced.

Markets and the Coronavirus

The Coronavirus has dominated the market’s attention and indexes appear close to wrapping up their worst week in over a decade. As of the end of Thursday most broad indexes in the US and across the world had fallen about 12% to 15% from recent highs. US indexes are in correction (greater than a 10% decline) for the first time since late 2018.
