Third quarter returns for equities and bonds were mostly positive (Table 1) and mark a continuation of the narrative that low and declining interest rates are good for both equity and bond markets. The past is not necessarily prologue, but year to date there has been a bull market in optimism. For example, the S&P 500 has appreciated over 20%, while S&P 500 earnings have grown only 1.5%, the difference, of course, is an expansion in valuation multiples. Earnings will need to accelerate, or investors may grow concerned that stock prices are ahead of fundamentals, and this may be a tall order with global growth slowing and wage pressure rising. read more ❯

Lower bond yields and inverted yield curves have traditionally been indicators of something ominous coming, but equity markets have taken that same economic data and concluded that bad news is good news. The S&P 500, for example, closed the second quarter at an all-time high. read more ❯
