Our Outlook for the Market

As the risk of increasing inflation looms, the risk/reward opportunity in stocks does not signal a screaming buy to us at this point.

Mentioned: , , , ,

  • Signs of inflation are unmistakable--and we don't think this is good news for the stock or bond market.
     
  • Many companies will struggle to pass along higher input prices, which means lower margins and/or substitution of alternative inputs.
     
  • We think "moaty" firms will weather any inflation better than companies without a competitive advantage.
