When Stock Prices and the Economy Diverge

We hope all is well with you and your families, and we wish you continued safety and health during these times.  

The stock market has rebounded recently despite all the negative news about the economy due to the coronavirus virus.  We thought you might find the following article interesting as it touches on:

1. Why the stock market's performance can go up when economic indicators are pointing down. 

2. Concerns about the eventual fallout from increasingly large US government expenditures designed to ease the economic burden of the COVID-19 pandemic and how this will impact future stock market returns (if at all).
