Our 2017 Bespoke Report market outlook contains a comprehensive view of where things stand today and what we expect for markets in 2017. We like to think it paints a full picture, taking into account all the positives and negatives facing investors. In 178 pages of charts, analysis and commentary there is obviously no shortage of important data points, some of which are bullish and some bearish. Below we’re including one of the more bearish tables from the outlook report. In an admittedly small sample set of only four historical examples, each time in history that a Republican president has followed a Democrat, stocks have fallen in the first year of the Republican administration. Returns were anywhere from -6.6% (Eisenhower) to -13.0% (Bush II). Lest we end 2016 on an overly pessimistic note, perhaps we’ll post a more bullish chart from the outlook report before the ball drops.
