In this month’s commentary, ING Chief Market Strategist Doug Coté stresses the key factors investors should know to ride out this temporary market volatility.
- For the third straight year, a Euro-crisis hit markets in May, causing uncertainty and doubt to overshadow fundamentals
- What’s needed today is a disciplined plan that protects portfolios from losses but does not overreact and send investors prematurely to the exits
- Earnings growth, a dependable fundamental signal for both buying and selling, remains positive — the U.S. is slowly but surely moving forward
- Ample rewards await those who maintain a diversified global portfolio and stay focused on long-term goals
