    Markets are 'aimless' amid rate cut uncertainty: Strategist

    Stocks have had a volatile week, with markets fluctuating on hot inflation prints and rate cut outlook adjustments. Prime Capital Investment Advisors Director of Investments Will McGough and Ziegler Capital Management CIO and Senior Portfolio Manager Dan Skubiz join Market Domination to discuss their market outlooks as earnings season begins. McGough explains that markets are currently focused on earnings growth rather than multiples expansion. He notes that valuation multiples are in the low twenties, leaving limited room for further expansion. To drive market growth, McGough emphasizes that earnings growth "needs to come through" this earnings season. Skubiz attributes the market's weakness to uncertainty surrounding the Federal Reserve's monetary policy path. He observes "choppy trading" since the hot March CPI print, which casts further doubt on the rate cut outlook, leaving the market "aimless right now." Both experts believe small-cap stocks have potential upside. Skubiz acknowledges that large-caps have been outperforming small-caps, but still sees "a space for small-caps." McGough agrees, noting that small-caps "look attractive from a valuation standpoint." For more expert insight and the latest market action, click here to watch this full episode of Market Domination.

    Why there are still reasons to like small caps

    The Russell 2000 (^RUT), which tracks small-cap stocks, has lagged the broader S&P 500 (^GSPC) index over the last 12 months.  Goldman Sachs Asset Management Portfolio Manager Greg Tuorto argues there are reasons to like small caps, such as potential IPO and M&A activity, earnings season, and some "unique thematic trends" in sectors such as retail and restaurants.  Overall Tuorto says small caps are "a very domestic asset class, very much driven directly by what's going on in the US economy. So the strength in the US economy should not be discounted in small caps." Watch the video above to hear Tuorto explain why investing in small caps based on the benchmark indexes, like the Russell 2000, may not be the best way to go.
