He predicts that the S&P 500 will eventually bottom at 3100, and he has positioned his personal portfolio accordingly.Read more: RECESSION EVIDENCE IS BUILDING, TIME TO GET DEFENSIVE, SAYS INFLUENTIAL ECONOMIST DAVE ROSENBERG
Rosenberg’s predictions are based on his analysis of the Federal Reserve’s tightening cycle, which he believes will lead to a recession. He also points to the recent failures of Silicon Valley Bank, Signature Bank, and First Republic as evidence that the economy is weakening.
Rosenberg’s views are in contrast to those of many other economists, who believe that the Federal Reserve can engineer a soft landing. However, Rosenberg’s track record suggests that he is worth listening to. In 2007, he predicted the subprime mortgage crisis, which turned into the Global Financial Crisis.
Investors who are concerned about the economy should pay attention to Rosenberg’s predictions. They may want to consider reducing their equity exposure and increasing their cash holdings.
