In this video, I will share some key market and economic insights as we enter the final quarter of 2019 and this decade. Some of the items I cover in this video include:

  • An update of stock market performance for the year
  • Which sectors have been leading and lagging the US stock market
  • Our thoughts on the current economic expansion (which is the longest in US history)
  • A look at the long-term trend of the stock market and where we think we are headed from here
  • An update on dividend yields
  • Why we think the probability of a recession in the near future is low
  • The impact of the trade war with China
  • How tariffs have impacted the manufacturing (hint: it’s at the lowest level we’ve seen since 2009)
  • An update on the Federal Reserve and what we expect for interest rates the rest of this year
  • Some thoughts on the 2020 election and what you should focus on as an investor
  • Stats on market performance during October, November, December (historically the best quarter of the year)

As you can see, I cover a lot of information in this video. My goal was to give you a thorough update on what you need to know to be an informed investor in less than 15 minutes.
