    Tue, Apr. 22 IVV, SPY 1 Comment

    Summary

    • The U.S. economy continues to strengthen and should expand for at least a couple more years.

    • Risk aversion is mostly absent and we suspect it will become more so.
    • The S&P 500 is now trading for a price-to-sales multiple that is higher than any other period in history except for the peak years of the technology bubble.
    • Without an adequate risk management process, investors will likely experience sub par returns (at best) over the next seven years.
