Market Summary

  

Dightman Capital believes one of the key to success in today's environment is to remove entrenched investment biases and implement an adaptive investment processes and execution ability. 

The following is our opinion of the current stock market environment.

2014 OUTLOOK

THE STOCK MARKET
As an individual investor since the mid-90's, and a professional investor since 2002, I have experienced several stock market cycles.  I have also spent a considerable amout of time researching stock market history.  I can tell you firsthand the cycle of today is unlike anything investors have experienced in generations.  Fortunately, history tells us this period will eventually pass and give way to a sustained advance that should take stock indexes much higher.  Imagine the S&P 500 reaching a level of 5,000!  It closed 2013 at 1,848. It may seem unrealistic but when you consider the S&P 500 closed 1993 at 466 only to advance to 1,469 by 2000, you start to see the potential.

New stock market highs are one of the ingredients that would suggest we are nearing the point of a more constructive advance.  Other important ingredients, which are normally associated with a sustained market advance, are still developing.  For this reason it is reasonable to conclude we may have another rough patch before the market leaves the current environment for good.

I am a growth manager at heart but my brain tells me we remain in a period where risk management offers additional value.  After 13 years the current market cycle may only be a few years from the next major sustained advance.  It is also possible it has already commenced.  If you are looking for an investment manager who approaches the investment management process from a completely different lens, a framework for balancing risk management with growth in today's market, with an eye toward a more constructive growth market in the near future, you may find the services at Dightman Capital a valuable solution to your investment management needs.
