January 2024- Quarterly Update
Onto 2024 and the election. I don’t do this often, but going back to July this past summer, I wrote “we are heading into the 3rd year of the 4 year presidential term and this tends to be the strongest year historically!” We got the rally we were waiting on, starting in November into year end. The nice thing about this rally is that it included dividend stocks and bonds finally!! All this came on the news the Fed quietly said they seemed content with inflation and interest rates and expected not to raise any further. The next anticipated Fed move would be a rate cut, yet this would come in the midst of a recession or financial event/shock. We will see if this happens, but the good news is the market has been a winner the 12 months after a Fed pause(October 2023) historically. Additionally, the election year tends to be a positive one for the markets, historically as well. If and when the Fed begins it’s easing campaign, this could signal the start of a new “bull” market as well. All of this and more can be found in our Janney Outlook 2024 piece on the website. We are cautiously optimistic about the year ahead and one where dividend stocks and bonds could possibly outperform the strong technology stocks or magnificent 7. We will continue to monitor.Here are the details on the quarter for you: HereNews from the SWM team:Jeff has been healing and going to physical therapy consistently from his rotator cuff surgery in late October. He plans on being ready for some March skiing and golf.

Lauderdale— For Kevin and his family, 2023 ended with everyone on Santa's nice list!!Wes had a great holiday with his fiancé, his three boys and his step-daughter
October 2023- Quarterly Update
What a summer we were having in the markets with the anticipation of the FED ceasing it’s activity and moving towards a “soft-landing” in the economy. Then September hit, and we had turmoil from the government shutdown, the Fed saying they may not be done, and rising yields. Although the U.S. market index is still up nicely for the year, the average stock in the index is flat year-to-date. Diversified stock portfolios with little or no technology stocks have struggled. Bond portfolios had a tough quarter, yet yields continue to push over 5.5%. On a positive note, corporate balance sheets are strong and earnings growth ahead looks promising. We will continue to monitor our allocations for any opportunities that arise into year end. See this for more detail on the quarter: hereSWM News:Jeff just joined the advisory board of the Atlanta Community Food Bank. Check out their website and this wonderful organization: Atlanta Community Food Bank (acfb.org)Also, unfortunately he is having rotator cuff surgery, AGAIN, but on the left arm in late October.

July 2023 - Quarterly Update
Friends,As I suggested in January, we were heading into the 3rd year of the 4 year presidential term. This tends to be the strongest year historically in the markets and we have been seeing it. Regardless of what all the short-term focused timers on CNBC have been saying all year, the S&P 500, Technology sector, and global stocks have had a strong first half. Although the S&P 500 finished the first half up over 16%, it’s been mostly the technology sector that has driven this gain.(Many don’t recall that the technology sector had big losses in 2022 and thus needed to rally to make up for those losses.) Interestingly, the average stock in the S&P 500 is only up about 6%. For this market to go higher in the near term, we should see the “rest” of the market and dividend stocks catch up. We will continue to rebalance our portfolios when needed and help meet your personal planning goals. See this for more detail on the quarter: hereSWM NEWS:Jeff’s daughter, Caroline, graduated from NYU with an art history and photography degree. They had a nice time seeing Yankee stadium for the graduation, catching a comedy show, and enjoying the food in NYC.
