Liz Ann Sonders, Charles Schwab’s Chief Investment Strategist wrote last week about what to do when a stock market rally is in the late innings. The full article is here: https://www.schwab.com/resource-center/insights/content/stocks-what-to-do-when-rally-is-late-innings?cmp=em-SCK%09%20. As a lifelong baseball fan, she was really speaking my language here! Whether you feel like the market will continue to climb or we are overdue for a correction, you can probably recognize that we are past the early and possibly middle innings of the bull market that started in March of 2009. For people who are familiar with baseball, one of the most fascinating aspects of the game is unlike most sports, there is no clock saying when the game will end. In fact, games have been known to go into the wee hours of the morning when extra innings are required. With that said, a game in extra innings can end suddenly. As a Phillies fan, Game 6 of the 1993 World Series still haunts me with the clip of Joe Carter’s walk off home run burned in my mind. Is the current market going to continue like one of those seemingly never-ending games, or are we going to see a walk-off correction in the near future? As the article above suggests, take a look at your investment allocation and make sure you are ready to make some in-game adjustments!
