Interest rates have stabilized and may even drop slightly toward the end of the year. As we begin to plan for future market movements, we are integrating some of our current portfolios with additional dividend stocks, such as utilities, and/or bonds, when we feel it is necessary.
We are keeping our eye on events that may influence the market, such as the tariffs and interest rates, as well as the housing market. As investors, not traders, we continue to look further into the fall and 2020.
We do feel that the market will soften eventually, which is why it is important that portfolios are balanced. We will continue to closely monitor developments with the economy, as well as global events that can affect the market.
