Focus on Fundamentals
LPL Financial Research believes that even as investors face prospects for periodic bouts of volatility, emphasizing fundamentals will remain critical for making effective investment decisions. LPL Financial Research’s Midyear Outlook 2019 provides updated views of current fundamentals and factors that should persist as shorter-term concerns—such as trade tensions and tariffs—fade, and emphasizes four primary pillars for fundamental investing – policy, the economy, fixed income, and equities. As headlines change, investors are encouraged to look to these pillars and LPL Financial Research’s Midyear Outlook 2019 to help provide perspective on what really matters in the markets.
“Although the environment has become more challenging, the pillars of fundamental investing still look sound to us. We will continue to monitor the impact of trade developments. For now, the odds of a near-term recession appear to remain low,” said LPL Financial Executive Vice President and Chief Investment Strategist John Lynch. “By focusing on the fundamentals, we believe investors can make the most effective decisions for their diversified long-term portfolios.”
