Is Now the Time to Increase Exposure to International Equities?
Could now be the time to add or increase allocations to international stocks? Consider the following: Historical performance over the past nearly five decades shows that domestic and international stocks have moved in a cycle of alternating outperformance. While past performance is no guarantee of future performance, this suggests that the cycle of domestic stock outperformance may be trending downward. While international stocks beat U.S. stocks by a wide margin for most of the 2003-2007 period, U.S. stocks have generally outperformed international stocks since then, in one of the longest winning streaks for U.S. stocks since 1970. We'll provide an overview of our view of asset allocation using a technical lens. Join us to see how using momentum-based strategies might be a fit for your clients' goals.
