Bruce says the Federal Reserve wants to show strength by hiking up interest rates to moderate inflation, since they didn’t raise rates in 2021, when some people like Larry Summers (former U.S. Secretary of the Treasury) thinks they should have.
Bruce encourages listeners to consider high-quality companies with good balance sheets that are generating cash flow. When it comes to bonds, Bruce warns investors about triple B bonds—just because they’re investment-grade does not necessarily mean they are of quality. He also discusses gold as a diversifier as it has gone up in price in terms of foreign currencies.
In times of volatility, stay patient, evaluate your needs, and work with your advisor to diversify your portfolio with high-quality investments.
