MarketBeat Podcast: Is Staying the Course Still The Best Investing Strategy?

Today on The MarketBeat Podcast Kate sits down with Nanette Abuhoff Jacobson, Managing Director and Multi-Asset Strategist at Wellington Management Company and Global Investment Strategist for Hartford Funds. Nanette gives us a fund manager’s perspective on the big picture, with a particular emphasis on how to allocate asset classes, and where investors should consider paring back or adding. 

  • How today’s higher inflation, growth fears, and Fed rate hikes make today’s investment environment challenging
  • Is simply staying the course the right thing to do right now, especially as many investors hold a high concentration of growth stocks in their portfolios
  • With growth not working at the moment, what other asset classes should investors be adding?
  • Should investors try to anticipate where the market’s going, given today’s unusual economic landscape?
  • How your time horizon should guide your investment decisions as you formulate a philosophy and framework.
  • Over a long time, the normal pattern of the economy is to grow, but the current environment means you should tilt toward a more defensive allocation
  • What asset classes should you reduce, and which should you consider adding?
  • How should you allocate your portfolio given that fixed income is declining at the same time as equities?
  • Has the market already priced in some of the current risky scenarios? 
  • Does Nanette believe the traditional 60/40 portfolio is dead, as many analysts are saying? 
  • Should you be increasing your cash holding now?
  • How should investors include commodities in a diversified portfolio?
  • How shareholders are pressuring energy companies and affecting supply
  • What is one of the few asset classes that can offer protection in a stagflation environment?
  • What’s the danger of making too many portfolio shuffles to avoid losses, but perhaps missing a new rally?
  • What are specific portfolio moves you can make right now to be defensive, while also being positioned for the market rebound?

7 Stocks with the Pricing Power to Push Through High Inflation

When inflation rises, it's not difficult to notice higher prices. But you don't have to be very old to understand the expression that a dollar doesn't buy as much as it used to. The Happy Meal was introduced in 1979 for a price of $1.10. Today, that same meal costs $2.99. Yet, it remains one of the restaurant chain's most popular items. It's also a barometer for the economy because of its convenience for parents.

And consider the iPhone which costs 81% more in 2022 than the initial model that launched in 2007. Yet despite the increase in price, consumers are willing to pay whatever is required.

The key to both of these examples, and others like them, is pricing power. A company that has the ability to raise its prices can maintain its profit margins. That means it delivers consistent results regardless of what's happening in the broader economy. In good times, this may be taken for granted. But when the economy slows down, that consistency stands out.

In this special presentation, we're looking at seven companies with significant pricing power at all times, particularly with inflation currently running at 40-year highs.
