Uncertainty, Change, and Opportunity

Header Picture

The stock market peaked on Feb 19th and over the next 33 days fell -35.3%. It then rose by +48.7% over the subsequent 114 days1. Such large moves over such a short number of days are relatively unheard of. In fact, events such as these are so rare, that they require an explanation. These are not normal times.

The collapse was driven by the arrival of a global pandemic, COVID-19. But it was supported by already slowing corporate profit growth and a stock market that was richly priced. The subsequent rise was driven by monetary and fiscal stimulus by every major industrialized nation, and on a scale and at a speed that previously would have been thought impossible. Governments did a lot and they did it fast. These efforts2 to support the domestic and global economies, dwarfed what we experienced during The Great Recession of 2007/09.

So, where do we go from here?
