Investors are placing more confidence in the market because of the following:
China’s stock market, Shanghai Composite Index, has increased 8% within the past month.
Commodities stopped free falling – oil is steadily getting back to the $50 a barrel range
Investors are becoming more accepting to the fact that interest rates are rising
The market has begun to stabilize in the month of October, showing that investors are beginning to see more clarity as to where US and Foreign economics are going. There is great reason to believe that markets will not be as volatile as they were in August and September, as companies continue to release third quarter earnings. It is imperative to read into earnings in order to evaluate the future of the economy. We believe that the economy is transitioning to be more consumer driven, which indicates that the companies who are able to cater directly to consumers will perform well.
