Osterweis' Vataru: Economy is strong, rates are low, it's safe to take judicious risks
Eddy Vataru, portfolio manager for Osterweis Total Return Fund, said that while the market is pricing in the high probability of a recession, he thinks it has been too aggressive and that there won't be a protracted economic slowdown in the near future. He noted that the inverted yield curve may be less of an indicator than in the past because rates currently are so low, which was not the case with past inversions. Also on the show, technical analyst Michael Sincere said the market is in a trend-less trend, with limited upside, some good potential moves to the downside but a rising trend that he doesn't want to fight. It has him mostly on the sidelines now, figuring there will be a clearer trend after the next Federal Reserve meeting.
