The S&P 500 is within reach of breaking even for the year as states begin to lift restrictions and reopen their economies.  Economic data is beginning to surprise to the upside and investors are increasingly convinced the worst of this pandemic shock is over.  There are concerns the market may be getting ahead of itself as a significant amount of uncertainty remains.

The market has staged a remarkable rebound off the March 23rd lows, aided by swift responses from the Fed and Congress to cushion the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic. As of the time of this writing, the S&P 500 has recovered 28% from the recent low but remains down just over 10% on the year. The initial rebound has been surprisingly strong considering the jaw-dropping unemployment numbers and uncertainty around when the U.S. economy will be able to safely reopen. Our recent writings have covered the response from leaders, but with earnings season underway we are beginning to hear directly from the companies.
