Investors preparing portfolios for a potentially rocky patch in US stocks

Saturday, 1 August 2020

Investors are preparing their portfolios for a potentially rocky patch in US stocks, worried that a dramatic rebound in equities may stall amid dimming economic data and rising political uncertainty.Most money managers are wary of cutting equity exposure too drastically in a market that has rallied more than 40% since late March and stands near all-time highs despite widespread economic devastation and a global coronavirus pandemic.

 

 

 

 

Still, the continued divergence between stocks and the real economy has worried some investors. US growth took its worst hit on record in the second quarter, while more recent data points to fading consumer confidence and jobless claims back on the rise. The S&P 500, meanwhile, stands some 4% below all-time highs, though its weekly advances have grown progressively smaller in July.That disconnect is pushing some investors to beef up cash positions or tilt their portfolios toward Europe, where economic prospects appear to be brighter than in the United States.
