Summary

Stocks hit record highs last week as the tensions between Iran and the United States stabilized, and it became clear that both sides are not interested in a military confrontation.

The liquidity provided by the central banks in 2019 as well as a strong labor market and healthy consumer spending have been the main engines of the strong economy.

We encourage investors to stay in stocks but to do so with diversification that will help offset bouts of volatility.
