Gianluca's Investor Update
A glimpse into a letter from your Manulife Securities Incorporated Financial & Investment Advisor Gianluca Folino. Keeping you updated on all things finance, markets, and economics.
Q4 2020 Market Recap
As we enter 2021, the Fed’s role will continue to be instrumental to the global financial system, making most countries, investors, and citizens' livelihoods dependent on the Fed’s actions and ability to continue to print. Effectively, the Fed is the market’s and the economy’s backbone now – certainly a strong one, useful, but not ideal. Unsurprisingly, Walmart, McDonald’s, Starbucks, and other major companies are pressing governments for more stimulus. As of today, government stimulus accounts for at least 20% of disposable income, and it is with that disposable income that people are spending to buy from these companies. As a result, more stimulus equals more disposable income equals more money to give to the Walmarts and McDonald’s of the world and leads to helping the consumer discretionary part of the market to stay afloat.
As it stands, the market is pricing in 1) A strong expected recovery for the economy; 2) A highly effective vaccine result; and 3) Dwindling lockdowns that should soon be behind us. With that said, I would contend that the greatest foreseeable shock would be if the aforementioned expectations do not develop as investors expect. For that reason, and much else, we continue to keep a close watch. As we move forward I remain optimistic that the future gets brighter and productivity grows stronger.
