Mariner Wealth Advisors 2021 Crystal Ball Outlook

Crystal Ball Outlook for 2021

Who would have thought the U.S. large-cap stock market would exhibit so much strength in 2020 — a year marked by a pandemic that caused a swift recession with spikes in unemployment and declines in GDP that were at Depression-era levels. In the spring, many were predicting doom and gloom for the year and suggesting investors should reduce equity exposure. We concluded that prudent and aggressive fiscal policy responses would enable the economy to weather a self-induced soft patch to invest in our health. While we have been a bit surprised by just how swift the S&P 500 has recouped the losses and moved to new highs, we are glad we got the trend right. This begs the question, “Is the 2020 rally in the S&P 500 unwarranted and simply a sandcastle in the sky?” After all, this impressive price advance occurred as COVID-19 was spreading at record levels during the “second wave.” What comes next? Please watch our Crystal Ball Outlook for 2021 to hear perspectives from Jeff Krumpelman, chief investment strategist, and Katrina Scott, chief investment officer.
