In this Year in Review edition of Random Gleanings, Jesse Hansford & Chris Beard take a look back over the year that was, and offer some thoughts on what it means for the year ahead.

Topics include:
– Top Heavy Market – In the first episode of the year, we discussed that the market appeared “Top Heavy” with 5 companies making up a larger than normal percentage of the S&P 500. The guys look back and discuss how the year played out on this topic, and what it could mean for future opportunities.

– INFLATION! – Undoubtedly “inflation” had to be the most used word of the year, right? Regardless, it was, and remains a critical issue facing investors. Chris points us back to a discussion held in April of this year and how it sounds awfully similar to what Fed Chair, Jerome Powell just a few weeks ago (Dec. 4).

– Stocks AND Bonds Both NEGATIVE – Ugh… a challenging year in the markets unlike any other! Especially challenging for those who count on asset allocation alone (strategic risk management) to buffer the difficulty of very volatile markets. Maybe time to consider a more Tactical Risk Management approach? We can help!
