The latest survey of economists portends no recession, despite the tariffs and evidence of a global slowdown. While every recession since WWII has been preceded by an inverted yield curve, on a few rare occasions the yield curve has inverted but the Fed chopped rates in time to avert a recession. For now, the stock market is discounting the latter scenario. May's strong personal income and retail sales data have bolstered investors' positive outlook, taking the S&P 500 to a new record high.

At 18.1X trailing earnings, the stock market looks fully-valued by historic comparison. However, inflation and bond yields have a direct bearing on valuation and, in an uncharted world of negative interest rates, it very well could be that this time really is different.

In this month's 110-minute, two-credit session, we'll discuss the latest economic data, the yield curve and the Fed, earnings forecasts, P/E ratios, bond yields, inflation, household balance sheets, the federal deficit and debt, the Fed's just-released Financial Stability Report and the very surprising conclusions contained in Congress' Joint Committee on Taxation's 2018 report on income inequality.

An average of 90 professionals monthly over the last year gave Fritz's CE webinars an average rating of 4.9-stars.
