LPL Research is proud to present Midyear Outlook 2019: FUNDAMENTAL: How to Focus on What Really Matters in the Markets, packed with the latest investment insights and market guidance to take you through the rest of the year. The Midyear Outlook combines the expertise of LPL’s team of analysts, strategists, economists, and investment specialists.
Key Message: When we as investors began 2019, we were reeling from the worst fourth quarter for stocks since the Financial Crisis and worst December for stocks since the Great Depression. Although calls for a coming recession were loud, the economy didn’t fall into a recession, and now stocks are off to one of their best starts in years. With the continued tailwinds of monetary and fiscal policy, this nearly 10-year-old economic cycle could have plenty of life left. The pillars of fundamental investing—policy, economy, fixed income, and equities—still appear sound to us.
