LPL Financial Research strategists discuss recent stock weakness and why a little more consolidation or weakness could be in the cards—but with the economy still quite strong, it also could be a nice buying opportunity for some investors.

Nasdaq in the news

The Nasdaq had its fastest 10% correction ever from a new high, yet previous fast corrections have been followed by really strong performance. As a result of the strong economic data, LPL Research has upped its fair-value target range on the S&P 500 Index to 3,450–3,500.

What type of recovery is it?

The official recession is likely over, but a recession is here to stay for some parts of the economy, while other parts seem to be soaring. This may be a “K-shaped” recovery, which means the economy goes two ways at once. Some parts of the economy are growing, while others are still struggling. 

Election talk

With the election less than two months away, the LPL strategists take a look at some potential clues for who might win. Wage growth, stock performance, the US dollar, and Gallup polls—there’s data for everyone and everything, but the bottom line is this election is closer to a coin flip in our opinion.
