Afternoon Note

Holding Pattern

By Charles Payne, CEO & Principal Analyst
1/21/2020 1:27 PM

The market has been in a holding pattern after the three-day break, as investors are looking for a catalyst to restart the rally.  The good news is, there is no panic, but there is some growing angst.

The biggest issue continues to be valuation, as few can quibble with the strength of the underlying economy; although, I think it’s reigniting.   Earnings are expected to grow dramatically throughout the year, so it’s critical companies have the confidence to offer strong guidance.

Meanwhile, technology keeps rocking.

I’m not forcing the issue here, but I am confident about the market overall.  I  am looking for buying opportunities, especially on dips.
