Today in the podcast, we run through some of the most interesting questions we got from US equity investors last week as 2023 got underway. Four big things you need to know: First, we’ve seen the most discussion about this year’s tax policy changes from Industrials, Financials, Energy and Utilities. Second, the three major growth/TIMT centric sectors account for almost all of the S&P 500’s decline in 2022, but the Tech sector is still a positive contributor to the index on a 3 year basis. Third, the malaise in Tech and leadership by defensive sectors may persist until the market starts to sense that a bottom in ISM manufacturing is close. Fourth, Small Caps are off to a solid start to the year. We think that will continue despite last week’s downtick in ISM manufacturing.
