Geo-political risks, particularly North Korea, are elevated and episodically impacting financial markets. Combining this with higher stock market valuations, some signs of late cycle economics, and a challenging legislative environment might suggest that portfolios should be underweight risk assets, such as equities.

We believe the following are important if U.S. equities are to continue to advance: read more ❯
