Last quote by Scott Clemons

So far so good, but I think it's too early to declare victory. We haven't heard from a lot of companies yet. We haven't even heard from a lot of sectors yet.feedback

Scott Clemons quotes

Apr 07 2017

It is certainly the most unusual jobs report I've seen in a while. There was something for everybody. The military response last night was in keeping with what the U.S. has done in the past. I think that's giving the market some comfort for now. But if the situation escalates, ... that could bee a negative for sentiment in the market.feedback

Mar 16 2017

As soon as there is some progress on fiscal policy, then there won't be so many people locked in at 2:30 on Fed day to watch a press conference. The White House and the Hill have far more power through legislation to influence corporate earnings than the Fed does through interest rates. So, yes, I would welcome that as a more durable driver of equity prices.feedback

Mar 01 2017 - Wall Street

If there's room for dissatisfaction on Wall Street about the speech it's that both corporate and individual tax reform really got little more than a passing glance and no more details. I didn't hear a whole lot that was new. He was certainly more presidential but that's a pretty low bar.feedback

Mar 01 2017 - Affordable Care Act

This was still a campaign speech and if there was any pivot at all it was more a campaign for ideas than for office. But it was light on details. One takeaway is that there was an enlarged focus on repealing the Affordable Care Act, which is not low-hanging legislative fruit and it will be hard to untangle that.feedback

Feb 24 2017

The market is looking for reasons to go higher, and the administration has provided it. Right now a lot of that is projection, hopes, and intentions, which when it collides with the reality of having to deal with Congress, even held by the president's own party, that leads to disappointment down the road.feedback

Feb 03 2017

I think the stock market should take this well. We need the labor force to keep improving to put more money in people's pockets. The payrolls should be taken as good news.feedback

Jan 27 2017 - Twitter

This is one where the good news outweighs the bad. The good news is personal consumption, which is the primary engine of economic activity and which contributed just about all of the growth. It's not too much of a stretch to envision what the political response would be from the White House. The Fed raises rates more often than (Trump) thinks it should, this White House being this White House takes to Twitter ... you can envision that it could spiral into a pretty negative situation by the end of the year. That's not a forecast or a projection, but it is a risk.feedback

Jan 06 2017 - Immigration

It's also a data point that is to some degree divorced from the political rhetoric. So much of the talk is, what are the implications of (President-elect Donald) Trump tax policy, immigration policy? This is a real-life indicator that the underlying trends regardless of politics are heading in the right direction. So this is an unequivocal positive both for the economy and the markets.feedback

We had a trial run in June with the Brexit vote. Like with Brexit, investors and traders are realizing that this is a process, not an event.feedback

Nov 09 2016

What you're seeing right now is a pretty predicable repositioning of portfolios. Like with Brexit, investors and traders are realizing that this is a process, not an event.feedback

Jun 15 2016

I think the consensus has been moving that way for some time. You have one more rate hike [this year], and then it just becomes a guessing game.feedback

Jun 15 2016

I think the consensus has been moving that way for some time. You have one more rate hike, and then it just becomes a guessing game. I think the Fed needed to, and they accomplished with the language of the press release that they're keeping a July rate hike on the table.feedback

Jan 04 2016

As we approach the seventh anniversary of the bottom of the market, March of 2009, earnings have begun to wane thin, valuations are pretty lofty, and that's a headwind. That's an obstacle for markets in 2016. Whether or not we get earnings growth in 2016 – that's the real fuel, that's one of the dynamics I'm watching very carefully.feedback
