Recent Volatility

Recent stock market volatility has, in large part, been driven by news of the Covid-19 Delta variant and its tendency to easily spread. The Delta variant has caused an uptick in Covid-19 cases and subsequent hospitalizations. However, reports have shown that the available vaccines are still effective at muting serious complications. Nonetheless, the stock market reacted harshly to the travel industry with a large selloff. The Econ Wealth Investment Management Team’s analysis suggested an overselling in the industry presenting an opportunity to initiate/add-to several positions in well-known travel companies, potentially on sale. The Delta variant fears may be overblown, and the market seems to be realizing this as we experienced a solid rally Tuesday, lasting into Wednesday. This overblown fear opinion is further supported by strong company earnings kicking off the Q2 earnings season.
