Outlook for April 2019

The stock market is on a tear lately with plenty of companies hitting all time highs, as central bank liquidity and FOMO from investors continue driving the increased stock demand. Valuations remain silly and have gotten even sillier over the past couple of months.

However, on central bank front, the Fed seems to be caving to the market pressure and signaling that the rate hike is done for this cycle. The bond yields continue to fall as the stock and bond market outlook continues to diverge.

Outlook for April 2019

Recent cash contributions to my accounts have increased my cash position lately, so I intend to continue deploying the capital in funds — both in broad stock and bond ETFs, as I am not really finding any screaming individual stock buys currently.

Meanwhile, I also continue researching investment opportunities that are outside the community’s focus either due to cyclical nature or simply because of fear mongering. Stayed tuned on this blog and the Twitter feed for new investment ideas.

As of Mar 31, 2019 our portfolio is diversified as shown below.

    • Have been looking at all the valuations closely to add, but everything seems a bit overpriced. So far just sticking to buying index funds instead unless something attractive comes up
