2017 Mid Year OutlookSubmitted by MidWestOne Investment Services on June 26th, 2017
Mother Nature continues to play funny games with us here in the Midwest. We jumped straight from late winter to summer a few weeks ago. Now, if you are to believe the weather forecast this weekend, we are going to have beautiful spring days with highs in the 70s. I would stop writing about the weather, but it bounces around more than the stock markets, leaving me with lots of material!!
Attached you will find the midyear outlook from LPL Research. Hard to imagine I am typing about a midyear anything already in 2017, but time continues to speed along. Their outlook is generally optimistic, and while there are things which could propel the markets forward, there are also potential speed bumps and hurdles which could throw the markets off track.
These good news / bad news scenarios provide a great reminder of the importance of having a sound financial plan. Our main focus as an advising team is to keep you on track with your financial plan during these fun summer months, leaving you more time to spend doing the things you enjoy. And if monitoring your financial plan is something you truly enjoy, come on in and sit down with us to review what is going on J.
