An updated outlook from First Trust: Coronavirus Contraction
While we observe the recent market volatility, we wanted to provide you with some historical market date in this period of turmoil. Attached are two reports that show the comparison between two different hypothetical scenarios in the wake of market corrections.
The first scenario (attachment #1) shows $100,000 invested in the S&P 500 from June 1st of 2007 to May 31st of 2018. The money stayed invested throughout the duration of the 2008-2009 bear market and showed a positive return at the end of the period.
The second scenario (attachment #2) shows $100,000 invested in the S&P 500 from June 1st of 2007 to May 31st of 2018. The money stayed invested until April of 2009, following the steep correction. Then held the stake in cash until April of 2010 and invested back into the market when things seemed to have started to recover.
You will see by the end of the period, the investment return of the hypothetical scenario that stayed invested during that period compared to the one who moved to cash had a significantly larger annualized return of the period.
As your Financial Advisor, I want this to be a reminder that even when markets struggle to perform positively, we must keep our sights on the long-term goals. We continue to invest within risk tolerance comfort levels and maintain logical decision making even when emotions run high and tell us to think differently.
