Year End Review and 2020 Outlook: Is This a Goldilocks Stock Market?

Borrowing a theme from the children’s story titled “Goldilocks and the Three Bears,” a Goldilocks economy is one that is “not too hot or cold but just right.” The term, first popularized in the early 1990’s, describes an ideal state for the economy. A Goldilocks economy sustains moderate economic growth and low inflation, which often allows for market-friendly monetary policy. Sound familiar?

Q3 Review and Outlook: Climbing a Wall of Worry

An old Wall Street proverb says that the stock market “climbs a wall of worry” as it marches into bullish territory. A rising market is often surrounded by an atmosphere of gloom and skepticism, when all sorts of reasons why prices should not rise steal the headlines. This old cliché has resurfaced as of late 2019, as investors continue to get caught up in the laundry list of negative headlines and potential issues. Despite the fog of seemingly bad news, the S&P 500 Index finished the third quarter less than two percent from its all-time high. This type of market environment is ripe with potential pitfalls for the average investor. In this paper we highlight some of the top concerns and give our view on why many of these might not be so worrisome after all.

Yet, parents who may have already spent a considerable amount of money on a child’s college education, as well as helping with other expenses, may be concerned about this turn of events.
