As we head into the Fourth of July weekend, many investors are worried about the future.

We know volatility has you on edge… But here’s some positive news that’ll put you at ease so you can relax and enjoy the holiday.

According to BTN, the S&P 500 has suffered two bear markets since the pandemic outbreak in March 2020.

Each time, the market recovered faster than expected. And if you stayed the course, you’d emerge from those bear markets better off than you entered them.

For example, the S&P 500 gained 20.4% from February 19, 2020 (the market’s peak before the first “bear” began) through June 24, 2022 (8 days after the second “bear” bottomed).

We get it. Sitting through a bear market is no fun – no matter how short it is. But there is light at the end of the tunnel… and it’s not an oncoming train. Better days are ahead.

So follow Daily editor Teeka Tiwari’s simple advice: Enjoy your summer. Hug your children. Swim in your pool. And don’t worry…

The market isn’t going anywhere.

“Just take a breath. Get clear about what assets you want to own… Why you want to own them… And at what price. Then let time do the heavy lifting.”

And at PBRG, we’ll be here to help guide you to those answers.

Happy Fourth from the PBRG team!
