We suspect there may be more pain to come for equities, even if the US economy avoids a recession and the functioning of core markets holds up.

Two points on US corporate earnings and the stock market

We think the earnings picture looks better for some sectors of the stock market than others, but overall it is likely to support only limited gains in equities over the next couple of years.

Monetary policy, the yield curve, and bond market conundrums

While rises in short-term bond yields haven’t always coincided with higher long-term yields, we are sticking with our view that 10-year bond yields will rise in most major economies over the next couple of years as central banks tighten monetary policy.
