Kasman, Curnutt on the Global Stocks Rout and the Federal Reserve

Don’t follow global panic and sell stocks just yet, says UBS.

Improving global growth and earnings, plus a continuation of gains in emerging markets, will for now outweigh concern about tighter monetary policy, according to the Swiss brokerage. It says Friday’s steepest drop in U.S. stocks since September 2016 should be judged in the context of the S&P 500 index trading without a decline bigger than 5 percent for more than 400 days, the longest streak since the 1950s.
