Portfolio Manager Jack Janasiewicz discusses equity market performance, opportunities and risks.

  • Since its lows in late March, there have been three periods where the S&P 500® sold off more than 7%, and each time the market recovered and pushed to higher levels.
  • Sentiment indicators have improved, but are far from euphoric, and show a mix of bullish and bearish tilts.
  • Unprecedented fiscal and monetary response, in the US and globally, has supported market levels so far.
  • Our base case remains that reopening will continue in the US, but it will be choppy and uneven.
