Market Insights

  • BMT Quarterly Market Insights, Spring 2021
    If you close your eyes, it probably doesn’t take much effort to recall the emotions you felt in March 2020 – confusion, anger, fear, to name a few. As we pass the first anniversary of the COVID-19 market low, you may find yourself on the opposite end of the emotional spectrum – hope, optimism, and the fear of missing out have taken center stage. All it took was the quickest 30% decline in the history of the S&P 500 (22 days – with the runners up all having occurred in and around the Great Depression), followed by a 78% rally over the next 12-months to take investors from optimism, to complete despair, to non-fungible digital tokens selling for $70 million. What a ride.
  • BMT Monday Market Insights – April 5, 2021
    In this week’s Monday Market Insights, we discuss the breadth of the current market advance, our expectations for higher earnings, and the implications of President Biden’s tax agenda. In the chart of the week we look at the changing dynamics of “momentum,” and how that will serve as a further headwind for the technology sector. We end with more discussion on the valuation differential between growth and value stocks.
  • BMT Monday Market Insights – March 29, 2021
