Without a doubt 2022 was a tough year for investment returns with 105 out of 112 asset classes generating a negative return, according to Morningstar data. However, many asset classes rebounded and finished with positive returns in the fourth quarter. This favorable trend carried over into the first quarter of this year. According to the research firm Fundstrat, “The S&P 500 has now posted two consecutive quarters of gains a pattern not seen in any bear market over the past 50 years. [This] solidifies our view that 10/12/22 was the bear market low and we are 6 months into a bull [market].”
More of our thoughts on the quarter and expectations are discussed in more detail in our Spring 2023 Investor Letter.
