You have plenty to do during this current. Stocks are in bear marketIt is that long term markets tend very well to rebound.

The S&P 500 has been higher three years later in eight out of nine cases in which the index has fallen 20% or more from an all-time high going back to 1957, according to research from Truist co-chief investment officer Keith Lerner. Stocks have returned an average 29% in these eight cases.

Surprisingly, stocks also have reclaimed ground sharply after losing 20% or more from their highs. Lerner’s data shows the S&P 500 has increased 15% on average in the seven times stocks have tanked 20% or more from a high dating back to 1957.

Lerner stated in a note to clients that “Given the wide variety of outcomes”, Lerner said, “our opinion is that this isn’t the time to become aggressive. However, we are not advocating reducing equity for investors who are aligned to their longer-term allocations. A lot of the excesses are now gone.”

Stocks can often rebound from big drops.

According to Lerner, investors moved quickly this year in order to re-price stocks amid high inflation and Federal Reserve interest rate hikes.

The S&P 500, Nasdaq Composite, and Dow Jones Industrial Average are all having their worst starts to a year in several decades. Lerner explains that this is the third worst return to the halfway point since 1950 for markets and the weakest since 1970.

The bears have not spared any market areas.

So far, 2022 has seen growth stocks like Amazon and Tesla drop more than 30%. Apple is a relative safety-haven that has seen an 18% increase in annual sales.
