The Daily Difference: Fundamentals Remain Strong
News headlines remain dominated by geopolitical concerns with Ukraine, Russia and Iraq leading the way. It is easy to get caught up in the media highlights that create exciting news stories. The market has been looking for an excuse to correct and we are in the middle of it. We haven’t seen any panic selling, but more a lack of buy demand, which likely equates to investors sitting in cash and a time of vacations on Wall Street. Keep in mind that fundamentals have not changed. Earnings overall continue to impress, the economy continues to grow and the Fed has remained very accommodative to continued growth. Until we see a shift in economics and a change in the Fed’s stance, this doesn’t appear to be a change in the overall direction in the markets.
