From a flurry of new IPOs set to hit the Street in the first quarter Bumble and Coinbase are two of the most interesting. Both of these companies are leaders in high-growth industries and I expect both to prosper.
The S&P 500 saw a small 10% pullback in September, historically the worst month of the year for stocks. However the leading index was quick to rebound and is now trading just below the all-time high. Looking forward stocks are moving into the strongest six months of the year and I expect more gains this year.
September is historically the worst month of the year for US stocks. It is the only month of the year with a negative return from 1925 to 2019. Looking forward I remain optimistic on the stock market. I am expecting more volatility in the next few weeks but I think the worst of the sell off is over.
