Things may not be exactly as they seem
According to a recent study* by Strategas, the case for a narrow market is likely being overstated.
In their Technical Strategy Daily Report (July 23, 2018), Strategas noted that while the market has been somewhat split this year, the largest stocks have not been as overly dominant as some reports might have you believe. In fact, their findings show that stocks in the mid-cap range have actually been outperforming this year.
What does all this mean?
Analysis and details matter and it’s always important to look beyond the top level to see what is really going on.
