Review the latest Weekly Headings by CIO Larry Adam.
As we prepare to celebrate the long Memorial Day Weekend, the Investment Strategy Group would like to remember, honor, and thank all of the members of our armed forces who bravely lost their lives in service of our country. Given the improving state of our nation’s battle versus the COVID-19 pandemic, we hope everyone is able to spend quality time with loved ones and we wish you and your family a healthy and restful holiday. Memorial Day serves as the ‘unofficial’ start to summer as the temperature heats up, school ends, and vacation season begins. While the volume of miles driven has historically spiked between now and Labor Day (the ‘unofficial’ end of summer), the easing of restrictions and inability to travel last year will likely turn our country into Resort USA! But with more people vacationing, do not lose focus on the markets as there are significant market moving events in the offing.
