Stocks Remain Resilient Despite Rising Volatility

Quarterly Insights – July 2019 Historically typical volatility returned in the second quarter as uncertainty regarding U.S.-China trade relations, future Federal Reserve interest rate policy, and the state of the U.S. and global economies caused a more-than-6% pullback in the S&P 500 during May, before stocks broadly recovered in June and finished the quarter near fresh all-time highs. In sharp contrast to the quiet, steady gains of the first quarter, stock market performance in the second quarter was one marked by extremes. The S&P 500 logged a 4% gain in April thanks to solid first quarter corporate earnings reports, which further reduced concerns that earnings growth peaked in 2018. Additionally, due in part to statistics that showed inflation well below the Fed’s target, investors’ expectations for a 2019 Fed interest rate cut rose in April, which added fuel to the bullish fire. The S&P 500 ended April near new all-time highs.

Avaii Wealth Management: How Our Independence Benefits You

It’s not often in life that you get the opportunity to make your dream a reality, so it is with great excitement that I announce my new firm, Avaii Wealth Management. After almost 20 years in the finance industry, I took a leap of faith and founded Avaii Wealth Management with Jeff Rainer (Founding Wealth Advisor) and Joel Blattner (Founding Direction of Investments and Planning). In our work at our previous firm, we felt that we were serving our clients in the same way an independent advisor would, but some changes were announced that pushed us to truly become independent and continue to act as fiduciaries for our clients.
