  • Intercontinental Exchange continues to do extremely well despite macroeconomic headwinds.
  • The company's exchange business and fixed income segments are more than offsetting weakness in mortgage services.
  • Even in its mortgage segment, recurring revenue remains strong while the company is outperforming its benchmarks.
  • The valuation remains extremely fair. I remain bullish and recommend investors buy on weakness.

Bear markets aren't fun. Like most people, I prefer it when my net worth goes up in an almost uninterrupted straight line. However, that's not how markets work, and that's a good thing. If it weren't for sell-offs, we wouldn't be able to buy great stocks
