2022 Q3 Client Update

The Economy:
At this writing, the Atlanta Federal Reserve’s Real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) Now forecast is for 1.4% growth during the third quarter. While Q1 and Q2 of 2022 registered negative real growth meeting the official definition of Recession, we have used the term Stealth Recession to distinguish between inflation running hotter than dollar growth versus an actual contraction in jobs and the Economy.
Tactical Allocation Strategy:
While the financial markets experienced their 3rd largest decline in under 5 years, in 2022, the strength of Energy Infrastructure and blue-chip medical dividends have provided resilience for investor portfolios.
Our current plan is to begin harvesting potential high points from energy allocations during potential spikes during 2023-2026. Prior cycles in energy appear to be 6-8 years of price risk due to oversupply and 6-8 years of appreciation due to undersupply.
The extreme pessimism and selling during June provided opportunities to use tactical safety reserves to add to global high yield allocations at attractive discounts. After the Federal Reserve tightening cycle likely pauses, the opportunity to harvest gains could materialize in 2023.
Harvests at potential high points will be used to add tactical safety allocations and downdrafts will be used to add cash flow at discounted prices.
