The Next Roaring ’20s: Fact or Fiction?
Written By: Louis Navellier
Chief Investment Officer, Navellier & Associates
We are truly living in interesting times.
The last time the world suffered from a major pandemic was between 1918 and 1919 when the Spanish Flu spread around the globe. The CDC reports that approximately one-third of the world’s population at that time was infected with the virus, and about 50 million people died.
At the same time, World War I was nearing an end. Both of these historic events had a massive impact on global economies. Shuttered businesses and a limited labor force—due to folks fighting overseas in the war and quarantine efforts to limit the spread of the Spanish Flu—ravaged economic activity.
The good news, though, was that end of World War I and the eradication of the Spanish Flu led to a decade of incredible prosperity in the U.S.—known today as The Roaring 20s.
Fast forward 100 years… while we aren’t coming out of another World War, countries around the world are fighting the COVID-19 pandemic and economies are reeling. Thankfully, several vaccines have been approved and are being distributed as we speak. Businesses and schools are reopening their doors. And economic activity is restarting, but not yet booming.
Could We Be On The Verge Of Our Own “Roaring 20s” Situation?
Wall Street is certainly acting like we are, with the stock market whizzing to new all-time highs in February.
Consider this: Since the March 23, 2020 low, the S&P 500 has soared 74%. Even more impressive is the more than 131% surge in the small-cap Russell 2000 index since the March lows. The “melt up” in small-cap stocks has been nothing short of phenomenal, with the Russell 2000 posting a 31% gain in the fourth quarter alone.
Not even the second impeachment trial of President Trump, the riots on Capitol Hill or a slew of weak economic data could stamp out the fire under small-cap stocks recently. The Russell 2000 has rallied about 16% year-to-date, versus the slight 4% gain for the S&P 500. Actually, all of the major indices breached new all-time highs in the first week of 2021 and are currently sitting at or near these highs now—though volatility picked up in late February.
With political unrest coupled with negative economic data and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, one would think that the stock and bond markets would be worried. But Wall Street isn’t showing any major signs of concern at this time. However…
Smart investors are starting to look for signs of an impending market correction, which would be healthy given the market rally we’ve experienced so far.
It’s for these reasons that the team here at Navellier & Associates delved into the market’s historic run in 2020 and considered whether recent market activity is pointing to a correction in the near-term. The team has more than three decades of experience, which has included significant market corrections like the summer of 1998, fall of 2002, early 2008, and March 2009.
Research, trend analysis, and historic market knowledge are vital to developing an investment strategy that could thrive during a “Roaring 2020s” environment, a market correction or whatever Wall Street has in store for us this year and this decade. And, today, we’re bringing our extensive experience to you in our just-released special report.
We’re going to dig deeper into the data to determine if we’re facing an overbought market that is overdue for a correction. We will assess historical precedence and other indicators that, we feel, suggest that we’re actually in the early stages of this bull market—and that we could be on the verge of our own “Roaring 20s” situation.
But, most importantly, we’re going to pull from the experienced team at Navellier & Associates and provide you with our strategy for the coming weeks and months.
We’ll give you a sneak peek of what you can expect to read in this report including this bold claim:
“There is reason to believe that we could be on the cusp of another Roaring ‘20s environment.”
With all we’ve been through in the last 12 months it may seem impossible that we’re on the verge of another push higher.
After all, we’ve just experienced:
In this exceptionally unique market situation, research, trend analysis, and historic market knowledge are vital to developing an investment strategy for the months and years ahead.
My team and I have dug deep into the data to determine if we’re facing an overbought market that is overdue for a correction or one that is set to propel stocks higher in 2021.
Just-Released Research Available Now
In our new report, we provide historical precedence and other indicators that, we believe, suggest that we’re actually in the early stages of this bull market—and that we could be approaching a period similar to what happened in the early 1920s—known as the “Roaring 20s.”
Simply put, perspective is critical right now. You need a clear understanding of where we are and the significant milestones, opportunities and dangers ahead.
This Special Report is for investors who want to make the most of their portfolios in 2021 and beyond. In it you’ll discover:
