THE BEST THINGS HAPPEN UNEXPECTEDLY: A Mid-Year Investment Overview

By John Furlow, TPF’s Executive Vice President

Who’d have thought? We’ve already made it through the first two quarters of 2019, and they’ve been full of surprises. In the past several weeks, we have seen continued volatility, and the same issues that loomed over the markets in 1Q19 are still in place.

THE UNEXPECTED SURPRISE

Strategic investors were rewarded in the month of June. The Russell 1000 rebounded with a robust 7% in June and was up 18.84% year to date. When the fourth quarter of 2018 had the S&P 500 dropping -13.52%, who would have predicted an 18.54% S&P 500 rebound in the first two quarters of 2019?

ARE YOU READY TO LEARN MORE?

On Thursday, August 8th, Kris Katarski, Senior Consultant with Segal Marco Advisors, and I will discuss the first six months of this year, along with future market outlooks.  We will drill into both the high and low points of our TPF portfolios. This is the time to get the real story on which funds and managers are outperforming others, as well as what we expect from our portfolio going forward.
