Whether you’re celebrating in-person or virtually, we’re wishing you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving! Giving thanks may seem difficult to do in a year that’s resulted in the loss of so many lives, jobs, and businesses, but we believe this holiday is the perfect time to reflect on all we are grateful for. From an investor’s perspective, the COVID-induced bear market and the historic levels of volatility at the start of the year will certainly not make the list. But between the ongoing economic recovery and the S&P 500 up over 12% year-to-date, we think investors still have a ‘cornucopia’ of blessings to count!
