3 things investors should be grateful for

This has been a long, trying year for investors.

A few weak points:

In fact, however, there are a few reasons investors should be grateful this holiday season.

One: What recession?

But a technical recession did not happen. Opposite, by GDP of the Federal Reserve of AtlantaThe economy is expected to grow strongly by 4.3% in the fourth quarter.

No one wants recession! So be thankful we’re not in one.

Two: Tech Habits, That’s Really a Good Thing

This may seem counter-intuitive, but be grateful that FAANG [Facebook/Meta, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, Google] The complex has lost billions of dollars in market value this year as the Federal Reserve moved to raise interest rates.

Why? Two reasons.

First, it taught investors a valuable lesson: Even powerful tech companies don’t have stock prices that go up in a straight line forever.

Tuesday: Cheaper things are coming

Be grateful that inflation has begun to fall.
