Weekly market wrap

With just a few days away from the end of June, stocks gained some ground last week but remain down nearly 20%, their worst first six months of any year since 19701. Aggressive central-bank tightening, concerns around inflation, and the effect of these two factors on growth have led to a rapid adjustment in interest rates, valuations, and sentiment. We think that the economy will continue to slow in the quarters ahead, reflecting the lagged impact of policy tightening. However, the year-to-date sell-off in both stocks and bonds has improved future returns for long-term investors.

2022 economic outlook

2022 will be a year of moderation, in our view, with the economy and corporate earnings expanding again, but at a more modest pace, while monetary stimulus dials back amid a transition toward higher interest rates. The good news is we think less is more in the year ahead: Fewer extraordinary growth levels and Fed liquidity can still support more bull market gains, accompanied by more volatility along the way.
