Bidding adieu to 2022

Kristin Lemkau, CEO of J.P. Morgan Wealth Management, reflects on this year’s market moves.


As the holiday season arrives, many of us are ready to put 2022 in the rear view. But it’s understandable if investors are peeking into 2023 with their hands over their eyes. A recession seems looming and a decline in corporate earnings could be on the horizon. With one of the most aggressive rate hiking cycle since the ‘80s, the Fed, along with more than two dozen other central banks, are toeing a delicate line. Feeling festive yet?

But there is reason to welcome in the new year. Consider these points:

  • The U.S. has a resilient labor market and a resilient consumer.
  • Core bonds are back on the menu of compelling investment options as the global rate hiking campaign reaches its final stages.
  • History shows that the stock market comes back eventually – in fact, equity prices typically hit bottom before the depths of a recession.

As a result, expectations for future returns on bonds and equities are now significantly higher.

Put simply: Now could be the time to get invested for the long term.

The reality is, there’s always something to worry about. Don’t let the market volatility bring down your holiday cheer. Work with your advisor, take the long view and we’ll give you the tools you need to plan for your goals.

 

I’m grateful for your business, and I hope you have time to relax and recharge in the coming weeks. Happy holidays to you. We’ll see you in 2023.
