Uneven recovery early suggests balance

By Kyle Tetting
What is certain, at least in the recovery to date, is that progress has been asymmetric. This is not unusual for an economy trying to emerge from the stresses of a recession.

Lessons from the quick sell-off of 2020

Pessimism could send a contrary signal

By Kyle Tetting
Economists at Yale University’s decades-long confidence surveys ask investors what they believe the probability is of a “catastrophic stock market crash in the U.S. in the next six months.” Individual investors were as pessimistic as ever in August, according to survey data. The most recent report shows little improvement. […]

Stocks offset fears of inflation over time

For years, Americans have harbored outsized fears of inflation. Not that concerns are unfounded. Like most variables that investors weigh, inflation cannot reliably be forecast. But it can be accounted for. “The best inflation protector is going to be stocks,” Steve Giles said in a recent Money Talk Podcast discussion with Brian Kilb and Kyle Tetting. […]
