As we all know the Presidential Election is pending.
As might be expected…the talking heads and the speculators are forecasting endlessly about “what this means for you and your money”.
Above the fray of the noise we would like to add a very well-reasoned analysis of whether or not it makes sense to adjust your allocations to cash, bonds or stocks due to a pending election. You Can Read the Article “Presidential Elections and the Stock Market” by Clicking Here! (We have horror stories, by the way, as regards the decisions made by investors prior to President Obama’s election in 2008.)
Should you feel disinclined to read the very brief White Paper, we have provided an Executive Summary:
- Equity markets can help investors grow their assets, but investing is a long-term endeavor. Trying to make investment decisions based upon the outcome of presidential elections is unlikely to result in reliable excess returns for investors. At best, any positive outcome based on such a strategy will likely be the result of random luck. At worst, it can lead to costly mistakes. Accordingly, there is a strong case for investors to rely on patience and portfolio structure, rather than trying to outguess the market, in order to pursue investment returns.
