Cumberland Advisors Week in Review (April 8, 2019 – April 12, 2019)
The Cumberland Advisors Week in Review is a recap of news, commentary, and opinion from our team. These are not revised assessments, and circumstances may have changed in the market from the time of original publication. We also include older commentaries that our editors have determined may be of interest to our audience. Your feedback is always welcome.
As part of Cumberland Advisors’ continuous effort to maintain strong customer relationships, we offer this week’s short video discussing current market conditions and how we are positioning portfolios.
Interesting week in the equity market. A couple of things jump out at us. Continued strength in the equal weighted indexes vs. cap weighted. We like to see that. That’s showing capital spreading out in the market. What else we noticed and like to see is some underperforming sectors like energy and financials getting a little bid in here.
There are multiple ways to trade a tough position. Financials! The “dogs” of the last 24-36 months. We look at them. And how things relate to pricing power.
On April 11, 2019, Cumberland Advisors’ held the event, Financial Literacy Day III: An Update on Financial Markets and the Economy. We really enjoyed this opportunity to connect with our friends, clients, and the community that live and work near us in Florida.
If you couldn’t attend or you did attend and want to re-experience this information packed day, we’re posting talks and panels from the event on our YouTube channel. Included in this email is Gretchen Morgenson’s keynote address and Q&A session from the conference. We’ll be posting more videos over the next week or so. Enjoy!
