Today marked the 5th straight loss and a three-week low for the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA.) In weak times like this, stock investors need to look through the noise and focus on the longer-term prospects of economy-wide profits and rising interest rates.

Short-term factors have buffered the economy since 2020; this year, long-term fundamentals should re-assert themselves as the most critical drivers of economic and financial performance. The economists at First Trust use their Capitalized Profits Model to forecast year-end fair value for the DJIA of 40,000 and 5,250 for the S&P 500, both low double-digit returns.

As usual, there are always some oversized game-changing items on the horizon:

  1. COVID and COVID-related rules
  2. Build Back Better, or...
  3. Mid-term elections
  4. Healing supply chains
  5. Federal Reserve actions
  6. Profits growth
  7. Invasions and sanctions

Your Life

Here's an age-old quandary. Is shrimp good or bad for you? While it contains antioxidants and an impressive amount of nutrients, it is high in cholesterol. Also, be wary of antibiotics used in farm-raised shrimp. Because the US consumption of shrimp is more than what the US can supply, 80% of shrimp is imported from other countries—mostly farm-raised and treated with antibiotics due to its high susceptibility to disease. Although the US does not permit the use of antibiotics in shrimp and other shellfish, the sheer volume makes it difficult for the FDA to monitor all the supplies completely. Conclusion? Overall, shrimp is a healthy food that can fit well into a balanced diet but know its source. #BeInformed
