Often times a reason that is provided to take an investment action only applies if the market is moving a certain way. Should it not apply in an opposite manner when you flip the scenario around? Here are a few recent bull market narratives you have not been hearing in the current pullback.

What to do in a correction?

S&P500 down 4%, stocks hitting 52 week lows, Emerging markets sell-off, NASDAQ seeing its worst day since 2011, global growth slowing, interest rates rising!!!

 

The past few weeks have given investors many reasons to panic and lose faith in the equity markets. The increased volatility and mixed market conditions have led to investors fearing for their capital. Just when they thought they had seen a breezy summer, investors were hit with a sea of red.

5 from 5i: How Economists See Market Drivers

It was a big week for US bank earnings, and markets showed concerns over President Donald Trump’s ability to push through his pro-growth policies, following a setback to the healthcare bill. Bank of America (BAC), the second-largest U.S. bank by assets, beat quarterly earnings expectations but experienced a slowdown in trading revenue and trimmed its expectations for growth in net interest income. Goldman Sachs (GS) dipped after also beating earnings expectations but posted a 40% drop in bond trading revenue. Telecom company Rogers Communications (RCI.B) reported a greater-than-expected 35% jump in second-quarter profit, as a gain in wireless subscribers offset declines in its cable TV business. Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) reported a better-than-expected quarterly profit, as it earned more from higher shipments of commodities, but executives were cautious on grains for the second half of the year. Here are stories we found interesting this week:

  1. An overview of factors driving market 'bubbles'
  2. ETF Managers made active decisions for passive investors, years ago
  3. Three 'simple' lessons learned over the last 10 years
  4. If portfolio management is no longer the source of a financial advisor’s value, what is?
  5. The 'Top 10' S&P 500 company contributions over the last 35 years
