Tariffs and geopolitical risk continue to dominate headlines, despite another stellar (in my opinion) start to earnings season. Valuations in terms of P/E ratios on the S&P 500 are actually lower now than they were at the beginning of the year, despite positive returns on the index. Earnings growing faster than prices doesn’t happen often and should eventually reward patient investors in my opinion.
