Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –
Hans Olsen, Stifel on Economy, Markets. 18 to 24 months, POTUS’ Heritage Remarks, Videos
The never Trump voices in the media, and those who are afraid to give the president and his policies credit for the record growth, business and consumer confidence, have a problem.
It’s the numbers.
The economy is moving in a healthy direction. So says Stifel’s Hans Olsen, who gives his 18 to 24 month market projections and insights.
Here on the Daily Business News market report our take is nuanced. Growth is a natural result of the right policies, and other conditions. If meaningful tax reform gets passed, the market recovery can be sustained, or may accelerate. Without that, even voices in the Trump Administration admit the markets could turn if the anti-tax reform segments win the battle now underway.
The following from CNBC.
“People make bad decisions when they go to cash,” said Scott Bishop, head of financial planning at Houston-based STA Wealth Management. “Their guts are usually wrong.”
Investment flows show that investors typically get it wrong when they try to predict which direction the market will head, said Cory Clark, director at Dalbar, a Boston-based market research firm.
In 2016, investors guessed wrong about the market’s direction — such as by selling shares, in aggregate, right before a winning month — in seven months out of the year, according to Dalbar. Over the past 20 years through 2016, after accounting for poor timing of fund flows, the average equity investor has earned 4.79 percent annualized, or almost 3 percentage points fewer than the Standard & Poor’s 500 index each year, on average, according to Dalbar.
“A year ago there was a lot of uncertainty and fear, and concerns over a potential market top,” Clark said. “And we just saw the markets keep on keeping on.”
Investors who sell now risk missing a “melt-up,” such as if stocks quickly notch additional double-digit gains, said Thomas Yorke, managing director of Oceanic Capital Management in Red Bank, New Jersey.
If the market does top out soon, investors who sell run the risk of not getting back into stocks at the right time.
“Most investors do very poorly when selling in anticipation of a correction,” said Bishop. “It never feels ‘right’ to buy back in.”
One of Bishop’s clients went to cash in the summer of 2008 — successfully dodging the market collapse that followed Lehman Brothers’ bankruptcy — but still hasn’t gotten back into the market, he said.
Investors generally experience their worst underperformance, compared with the market, during times of market turmoil for just that reason, Clark said. They pull their money out of stocks and fail to get back in as the market recovers.
Even missing out on a few days of market gains can have devastating effects on an investor’s long-term performance.”
