Taking a longer-term viewpoint on the market, meaning more than a year out, it seems that for stocks to continue to rise, they will have to do it without the benefit of fundamentals. It will need to all come in the form of multiple expansion, which will not be easy given multiples are already higher. Now that we have passed the mid-point of 2020, it seems appropriate to begin to focus more on 2021 and the possibilities for 2022.
