PARSIPPANY, N.J., Aug. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hennion & Walsh has released their Fall 2016 Market Outlook with insights on areas of changing market leadership (link here). For example, thus far in 2016, market leadership has changed as Value outperformed Growth in all three U.S. capitalization-based asset classes rather significantly. Hennion & Walsh expects that the Value trend of 2016 may persist if equity market volatility picks-up again.
"While exhibiting some choppy trading patterns, equity markets were still building upon the positive returns that they posted during the 1st quarter throughout the majority of the second quarter up until the surprising results of the EU referendum," said Kevin Mahn, Chief Investment Officer at Hennion & Walsh Asset Management. "We currently believe that there are five areas that will influence market performance for the remainder of 2016:"
- The Federal Reserve and Interest Rates
- U.S. Presidential Election
Hennion & Walsh continues to believe proper asset allocation to be of utmost importance. Applying a historical perspective and maintaining an appropriate strategic asset allocation can help provide comfort and direction to investors during periods of great volatility.
