12:00 TUESDAY – Stock Market Report #147 – 1/4/22

by Robert Holman | The Defensive Advisor |

EQUITY MARKET RATING … 7.0 (0-4 bearish, 5 neutral, 6-10 bullish). Markets looking good so far.

EQUITY MARKET and ECONOMY … Equity market opportunities in 2022 look good so far. We did have the “Santa Clause Rally” that so many were hoping for, and the overall equity market appears to be on a positive rally during these first few days of the New Year. Good news.

New Covid-Omicron cases look like they will peak in the next 5-10 days and this virus may actually burn itself out within the next 30 days. Even better good news.

But, as always, it could all turn around very quickly.

When change happens, we happen to change. Many thousands of dollars have been lost to predictions that never occurred. Many thousands of dollars of profits have also been "not made" (i.e., lost) by investors not responding to change. So, we do not try to PREDICT the future, so much as we try to RESPOND to current change.

Of course, my clients receive the quickest and greatest financial benefit from our responses. Many investment advisors do not even attempt to respond to change, which to me seems either “lazy” or maybe it's just a lack of knowledge of what to do. Unfortunately, the client is the loser in that process.

Please keep in mind that different parts of the equity market are affected unequally by what is occurring now. To find out what sectors, styles, and strategies are working, please consult with a financial professional who works full-time in portfolio management.
