North American stock indices closed generally higher on Friday, following the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th U.S. president. However, U.S. markets eased back on the week overall, closing just slightly below breakeven, as investors digested an increase in December’s all-items consumer price index to an annual 2.1% rate, raising concerns about the possibility of rising rates and a stronger dollar, against a backdrop of the potential for protectionist trade policies reiterated by President Trump during his inaugural address. The S&P 500 Composite Index closed Friday with a marginal weekly loss of -0.2%, while the Nasdaq Composite Index lost -0.3% on the week.

The U.S. market is one of the toughest to beat on a consistent basis, which is why I tend to favor low cost exchange-traded funds (ETFs) for my U.S. equity exposure. However, if you are using a financial advisor and are looking for a well-managed, high-quality mutual fund that will give you a shot at outperforming the S&P 500 once in a while, then the Manulife U.S. Equity Fund, which mirrors the Mawer U.S. Equity Fund, is definitely worth considering.

Replying to criticism during the Great Depression for changing his position on monetary policy, economist John Maynard Keynes famously quipped “When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do, sir?” Our Investment Committee at Forstrong Global Asset Management may use the same words regarding our interest rate outlook.
