Consumers Are Ready for Reopening

People around the globe are being vaccinated and there is a light at the end of the tunnel, driving stock investors’ enthusiasm. With Congress passing a $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill, consumers will have more spending power.


  • Both economists and investors are optimistic as the world population is being vaccinated.
  • Savings rates in the United States hit all-time highs and remain elevated, so when the restrictions are lifted, consumers may be ready to spend.
  • The stock market is forward-looking and much of this optimism may already be factored in.
  • Risks remain elevated as bond investors are driving up bond yields, which increase borrowing costs for corporations and hurt stocks, especially technology stocks.
  • We continue to recommend diversifying across and within asset classes, along with a focus on long-term objectives and not getting caught up in day-to-day fluctuations and noise.
