Asset class views: our 12- to 18-month outlook
U.S. equity: a quality approach for a choppy environment
After plunging into a bear market, then recovering sharply before a pullback, U.S. equities may be volatile amid a difficult macro backdrop.
International equity: tilting toward quality and growth
The economic data has bottomed overseas, and an outright defensive position is no longer warranted; quality and growth are best positioned for an uneven recovery.
Fixed income: emphasizing quality
Investment-grade corporate and government bonds may outpace lower-rated issues in today's environment.
Our top portfolio ideas to consider now
The U.S. equity market exhibits better fundamentals relative to non-U.S. equities, as measured by return on equity and sector composition. Embracing quality allows investors the chance to both participate and protect.
U.S. mid caps
U.S. mid caps benefit from increased fiscal stimulus and have shown the ability to bounce back out of recessions. Since the market low in March, mid-cap stocks have outpaced large- and small-cap stocks.
U.S. investment-grade corporates
Investment-grade corporate bonds offer an attractive risk/reward profile. Support from the Fed’s current bond-buying programs provides an additional tailwind.
