“Warren Buffett is right. In the long run, America is a great bet. You wouldn’t want to bet against America. The old saying is, ‘When America gets a cold, the rest of the world gets pneumonia,’ and that’s probably true.” – Phil Town
This week we discuss why index investing isn’t really speculating because you’re betting on the US to be more prosperous in 10 years than it is today because indexes parallel the US stock market. We talk about what makes the US a good economy (and stock market) to bet on. We analyze the United States using the 4Ms of investing. We discuss why the average PE Ratio of the S&P 500 for the last 100 years has been about 15. Finally, we talk about how recessions typically cycle and what’s going on with the Federal Reserve.
Let’s dive into what’s going to happen 2019, if we’re headed for a recession, and the state of the market.
If you want to know our outlook for 2019, join us on the podcast today!
