December Outlook

Despite the ongoing election controversies and the continued rise in COVID19 cases, November has been a great month for equity markets. Indeed, the Standard & Poor’s 500 index has risen over 10%, again reaching all time highs during the month. Importantly, there have been positive developments on the COVID19 vaccine front that have shifted the investor outlook away from the current negative pandemic data to a potentially more optimistic future environment where global economies begin to reopen and heal.

This impressive equity rally continues to confound the bears, but our research has been and remains constructive. We have been bullish since our initial buy signal back on March 20th and we have consistently advised investors to view tactical weaknesses as buy opportunities for the last eight months.

Going forward, investors need to be mindful of both their asset allocations as well as their equity portfolio positioning in order to maximize returns during what we expect will be a favorable period for stocks.
