There are two main types of investments: strategic and tactical. Strategic investments involve buying and holding, allowing them to grow without triggering taxes or attempting to time the market. On the other hand, tactical investments focus on seizing opportunities arising from changing economic conditions, such as a decrease in interest rates.
Although future events may alter this plan, reports suggest that the Federal Reserve is considering lowering rates 3-5 times in 2024. While uncertainties persist, we’re examining potential investment opportunities if rates do decrease, including:
- Long-term corporate bonds
- Utility stocks
- Small-cap growth stocks
Each of these investments aligns with specific themes: lower interest rates favor small-cap companies over large-cap ones, reduced rates make dividends in utility and defensive sector stocks more attractive, and long-term corporate bonds benefit more from lower rates than short-term ones.
It’s essential to note that these are not recommendations but rather an educational overview of potential investment approaches. If you’re interested, contact the Chapwood Investments team at email@example.com. We can provide further details and guide you through strategic positions for 2024.
