US markets finished mixed on Wednesday after the benchmark S&P 500 declined 1.6% on Tuesday. The indices reversed course late in the afternoon after the Dow was up more than 500 points. Yesterday’s action coincided with Fed Day, with the Open Market Committee deciding – as expected – to leave the fed funds rate unchanged. Fidelity Magellan (FMAGX) is a domestic stock fund I like, says Brian Kelly, editor of Money Letter.
The S&P 500 once again faded in the afternoon and declined for the fourth consecutive session on Wednesday. Tech names pressured prices, and higher interest rates were certainly a big factor. But I still like funds such as Hennessy Cornerstone Mid Cap 30 Investor (HFMDX), writes Brian Kelly, editor of Money Letter.
As I was reviewing the economic and performance numbers recently, a hit song from my teenage years came to mind. Simply put, as The Cars sang in 1978, let the good times roll. We believe there are at least three solid reasons that the gains we saw in the first quarter are sustainable, and that the equity markets still have additional upside potential, advises Brian Kelly, editor of Money Letter.
We have seen confidence increase across several different economic areas. For example, we recently saw a move higher in small business optimism, homebuilders’ confidence, and consumer confidence. Invesco S&P SmallCap Momentum ETF (XSMO) is a name I like here, says Brian Kelly, editor of Money Letter.
