Foreman illustrates that today’s conversation among strategists and investors are certainly different from a year ago: at the beginning of 2018 people thought the “economy was bullet-proof,” and “synchronized global growth” was an oft-cited phrase. Not so right now; people are aware the economic outlook has shifted. But at the same time, investors also have moved past the fear that was prevalent in the markets in December. Foreman adds that stock prices have adjusted downward enough that many are now back in favor with investors, and details the strong performance notched recently by Okta, a KAR portfolio company.
