Today’s newsletter is abbreviated due to my attending this week’s National Association of Active Investment Managers annual conference.
The Bottom Line
Long-Term Positive and Short-term Positive for Stocks.
- Long-term, the stock market is in an uptrend and looks strong. As long as the S&P 500 does not fall below about 2180, any weakness in stocks that we see in the coming weeks should be viewed as a buying opportunity.
- Short-term, market internals have improved and I have switched my short-term bias from Neutral (last week) to Positive this week.
We made substantial changes in client accounts last week due to improved short-term stock market conditions. All interest rate sensitive bond funds were sold and we added equity funds to all client accounts. Our equity allocations are about 30% for conservative accounts and 50% for aggressive accounts. Most accounts still have some cash available that should get strategically invested in the coming days.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
