12:00 TUESDAY – Bi-Weekly Market Report #237 – 5/14/24

by Robert Holman |

STOCK MARKET RATING (THE BIG PICTURE) … 6.0 (1-4 bearish, 5 neutral, 6-9 bullish). The economic warning signs have led me to change my perspective on the market, and I’m very cautious at this time because an economic slowdown may be just ahead. To make an analogy, I’m driving with my foot lightly on the gas pedal, maintaining speed but preparing for a slowdown just ahead.

Chairman Powell of the Fed announced what everyone suspected and said that rates may have to stay higher for longer, for the higher rates to do their work in reducing inflation.  The market did not drop substantially after that, which is an encouraging sign for rational investing overruling knee-jerk reactions.

It looks like we have a more-or-less fully priced overall market where there are few obviously undervalued stocks.  There are little pockets of opportunity to find undervalued stocks through hard work.

What I’m envisioning is a market that mostly moves more-or-less sideways, and slightly up, where income opportunities will be an important part of the overall return.
