Pathlight President, MJ Nodilo, discusses the recent market volatility being created by trade war headlines but reminds investors that coordinated global economic growth is driving earnings for companies higher.
For a full recap of how the quarter played out, we invite you to check out our Q1 quarterly market overview
The first quarter of 2018 is in the books and it sure was a wild ride for stocks. But the increased volatility really led to an only slightly down first quarter. That breaks a string of 9 straight positive return quarters for the S&P 500. Pathlight encourages everyone to take a step back and realize that the increase in stock markets has been very strong over the last 2 years, and that global economic growth continues to drive company fundamentals.
