On May 26, 2023, Cameron Dawson, Chief Investment Officer at New Edge Wealth, shared his perspective on the current state of the bond market and changing investor behavior. Dawson observed that the bond market is heavily influenced by the actions of the Federal Reserve, with the market trying to integrate the Fed’s pivot on several occasions since the start of the tightening cycle. She also noted that warmer-than-expected Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE) data is a key indicator that a June rate hike could be on the horizon, a departure from past expectations for rate reduction.
In addition to the bond market, Dawson also discussed changing trends in stock investing. She pointed to the rotation from small-cap stocks to big tech companies, suggesting a late-cycle market scenario where investors are increasingly looking for growth in large-cap sectors. Despite the strong momentum for tech names, Dawson warned that stretched valuations could face reality in the face of economic weakness, a situation that is not yet evident but could materialize.
Additionally, Dawson noted the breakdown of the typical inverse correlation between real interest rates and growth and technology stock valuations in 2023, further complicating the investment landscape. With real interest rates near their all-time highs, tech stocks have seen significant valuation multiple expansions, with outperforming companies such as Nvidia Corporation Inc (NASDAQ:NVDA) seeing their valuation rise. Overall, Dawson’s insights shed light on current market conditions and potential challenges investors may face in the near future.
