The Fidelity Small Cap America Fund is a concentrated mid-cap-focused U.S. equity fund that continues to deliver strong risk-adjusted returns year-in, year-out for investors, with 3-year and 5-year annualized performance of over 20% respectively. The fund has also produced strong calendar-year performance, and hasn’t had a losing year since 2008. Here’s a closer look at the fund along with my comments on its outlook.

“Hot summer streets, and the pavements are burning” begins the 1983 hit song, “Cruel Summer,” by British pop band Bananarama. Investors similarly fear a scorching summer in financial markets.

In 1930, the U.S. Congress passed the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act. Its main goals were to protect American jobs and shield U.S. farmers from foreign competition. The men whose names were attached to the bill were Republicans: Reed Smoot, a senator from Utah, and Willis Hawley, a congressman from Oregon. At the time the measure was being debated, just as the Great Depression was taking hold, Mr. Hawley predicted the bill would usher in “a new era of prosperity.” Does any of this sound familiar? It should. It’s exactly the same rationale that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has been using very effectively to rally voter support.
