Market Matters 2016 Outlook - 2016, the year of big trend changes

Market Matters

Looking back over 2015, one element that is clearer than ever is that the ‘set and forget’ investment approach simply does not work in this market. Shocking share price drops in 'old favourites' and 'household names' like Santos, BHP, Dick Smith Holdings and Slater & Gordon capitulated worse than what was seen in the GFC - this just goes to show that blindly buying and holding stocks in your portfolio is more likely to lose you money. Not to mention the disastrous performance in the resource sector… It’s not all doom and gloom, though, there were some positive stories with stocks like Domino’s Pizza (DMP), Macquarie Group (MQG), Challenger (CGF) and Bank of Queensland (BOQ) rewarding investors with healthy returns throughout 2015. We intend to remain flexible and fluid with our investment advice, being happy to move into significant cash holdings if we believe market risk / reward dictates.
