Previous Rebounds After a Tough Start
Our economy has a long track record of resilience.
The first 100 trading days of 2022 have been a tough start for investors, however, this isn’t the first time this has happened.
In fact, 1932 (Great Depression), 1940 (World War II), and 1970 (Vietnam and a recession), had slower starts, yet each rebounded with positive returns.
- 1932 had a -38.1% return on the first 100 days, while, the rest of the year had a 37.6% return.
- 1940 had a -26.2% return on the first 100 days, and the rest of the year had a 15% return.
- And in 1970, the first 100 days had a –23.7% return, however, the rest of the year had a 31% return.
While there is never a guarantee that these kinds of returns are coming in 2022, there may be reason for optimism.
