This week’s Alpha Trader podcast features hosts Aaron Task and Stephen Alpher speaking with Gabriela Santos, global market strategist at JPMorgan Asset Management.
Among the topics covered:
- There are lots of positives going into 2022, says Santos, expecting the pandemic to fade further, inflation to moderate, and growth to remain strong. For now, at least, inflation should prove to be a boon to corporate profits. The only thing holding the JPMorgan Asset Management team from being uber-bullish is the starting point for stocks - it’s been a big two years for equities, and valuations are perky as we end 2021.
- JPMorgan’s just-completed Long-Term Capital Market Assumptions report looks out to the next 10-15 years, and Santos notes it’s somewhat easier to predict returns over this longer period than over the next 12 months. That report sees U.S. equities returning an average of just over 4%. The better opportunities, says Santos, can be found in more reasonably valued Europe and developing markets.
- This is Alpha Trader’s final podcast. It’s been a great run over the past two+ years, and we’d like to thank all of our fantastic guests, and our sponsor CME Group.
