Winter 2020 Investor Letter: From Pandemic To Transition

The just completed year of 2020 saw the S&P 500 Index increase a strong 18.4% and this is on the back of a 31.5% return in 2019. One might not have expected this with a large number of state economies constrained by virus mandated restrictions early in the year. For the five calendar years from 1995-1999 the S&P 500 Index returned 20%-34% in each year. Could the market be in for a repeat of that type of performance? The so-called roaring 1920’s occurred after the Spanish flu of 1918/1919; partially a result of satisfying pent-up demand.

Our Investor Letter touches on some of these topics and our viewpoint on the year ahead.
