Jodi Johnston’s December Newsletter

A lot of great information from Jodi and senior Raymond James analysts in this one!

The U.S. stock market ended November in positive territory with the three major indices up 2% to 3%. On top of that, American manufacturing continued at a strong pace, even as counterparts abroad slowed. And if history repeats, the latter half of December typically brings with it a so-called Santa rally, though Chief Investment Strategist Jeff Saut recently cautioned that any slowdown before the rally historically comes in the first two weeks of December. For now, stocks look “poised for higher prices, yet again,” he wrote. The last month of the year “is a pretty strong month for the equity markets,” he noted in his December 1 commentary.

Please find Jeff Saut’s commentary here as well as weekly commentary by Chief Economist Scott Brown.

Investors should remain watchful of action overseas. Europe’s manufacturing has weakened; Japan’s debt has been downgraded; political unrest continues in Hong Kong, and Russia’s ruble is weak on lower oil prices and economic sanctions. In case you missed it, Japan, the world’s third largest economy, officially slipped into recession November 18 after its GDP fell for two straight quarters. That news coupled with Europe’s economic worries makes the overall global outlook a little weaker, but could prompt some investment flows into U.S. markets, which appear stronger by comparison.
