Now on to the markets!
The market has shifted drastically from the last two years. Coming out of the pandemic, the Federal Reserve put the pedal to the metal with easy money; flooding the markets with cheap and abundant capital. This steady flow of cheap money boosted the growth/speculative parts of the market. Companies with little to no earnings, but exciting new products (think artificial intelligence, electric vehicles, blockchain, etc.), capitalized on this trend and those stocks got bid up in a large way.
Now that the Federal Reserve is becoming more restrictive and raising rates, we have seen the growth/speculative sectors of the market get bid down materially. The current environment of a less accommodative Fed, higher rates and higher inflation has caused investors to shift to the “boring” parts of the market, or the “old economy” stocks.
We wanted to provide an article that details this shift in sentiment, as well as other insights on the current market trends.
As always, we are here for all of your investing and financial planning needs. Please feel free to reach out to myself or Bonnie to schedule time to review your investment strategy or financial plan.
International Outlook: What’s old is new again
The mining industry, a long-neglected corner of the equity markets, suddenly looks a lot more attractive. With commodity prices skyrocketing, companies that produce basic materials such as iron ore, copper and nickel are back in favor given the crucial role they play in the global economy. (Carl Kawaja, 2022).
