Great but Lower Expectations?

Our eyes skip over the words. We've seen them so often that they blend into the air. “Past performance is no guarantee of future results.” What if instead they read, "Past performance will be twice as good as future results"? How would that change the way you think about your family's financial future?

The first quarter of 2017 saw a strong U.S. equity market and a more challenged fixed income market. The S&P 500 finished the quarter with an impressive 5.5% increase from where it started on January 1st. The market increase was driven by two major factors:

  • Improving corporate profits
  • The anticipation that the Trump Administration will be successful in lowering corporate taxes and reducing regulatory burdens on businesses

During the first quarter, there were a number of events that could have derailed the stock market ranging from the transition to a new U.S. President to political upheaval in South Korea and missile launches in North Korea, to the official start of Great Britain’s exit from the European Union. Yet, these were hardly speed bumps in a generally upward trend.

As we begin 2017, it is valuable to take a minute to sit back and reflect on the past year.  To say the least, it was quite a year.  In fact, some have termed it the year of the “unexpected” with Britain voting to leave the European Union, Donald Trump defeating Hillary Clinton in the Presidential election, and the Chicago Cubs winning the baseball World Series.  Yet, to define the year with such a single theme would not do justice to the wide spectrum of events, both positive and negative, that we have witnessed.  One only needs to think of Pope Francis’ world tour of mercy, exploding Samsung phones, the attempted military coup in Turkey, the impeachment of President Rousseff in Brazil, the spread of the Zika virus, the deaths of Fidel Castro and Mohammad Ali, and the announcement that Harriet Tubman’s image will replace that of Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill to appreciate where we have been.  Yet, even as we think about 2016, we look forward to what will come in 2017.
