Fleishel Financial News
Optimism in the markets and the economy has not appeared to reach “irrational exuberance” as the former Fed Chair Alan Greenspan once coined but the rise in the equities market has investors concerned about “the next shoe to drop”. One of the drivers recently has been the high likelihood of a corporate tax cut and tax reform. Scott Brown, Chief Economist for Raymond James opines, “While tax reform has provided a tailwind, we note several concerns regarding potential headwinds, including: the near hyperbolic move in equities coupled with the absence of a material correction; a widely expected rise in interest rates as the Fed reduces its balance sheet and remains in a tightening (rate hike) mode. While potentially healthy for lagging sectors of the market, this could presage a more material change in investor sentiment.”
