Ken Fisher Provides His 2022 Stock Market Forecast
Fisher Investments’ founder, Executive Chairman and Co-Chief Investment Officer Ken Fisher discusses why 2022 may be a strong year for stocks despite a myriad of investor concerns. Ken believes markets will start 2022 rocky and slow, only to accelerate as the year goes on. Ken explains that the second year of a US president’s term usually begins in a slog, as investor anxiety about midterm elections drives short-term market volatility.
However, in the latter half of the year, Ken anticipates a pre-priced outcome of political gridlock. Markets love gridlock because it lowers legislative risk and investor uncertainty, which is bullish for stocks. Even with an apprehensive start to the first half of the year, Ken expects a strong fourth quarter to deliver good returns for the year. While few investors believe 2022 will be a big year for stocks, Ken says markets tend to do what few expect, and those who let early year volatility keep them out of stocks may be left behind.
