A Taxing Issue for Investors

posted 4/19/2012 in Investments

Market Commentary Highlights...

  • Perhaps surprisingly, it appears that the tax rate changes have played little or no direct role in stock or bond market performance.

  • The most likely reason is that the effects on after-tax returns were deemed negligible relative to the macroeconomic and geopolitical drivers.
  • The far bigger impact is an indirect one determined by the magnitude and direction of overall fiscal policy taken (or not taken) in 2013 to put the United States back on a path to financial stability.
