Stocks were looking to add to yesterday’s gains this morning after the Federal Reserve soothed markets by not making any changes to monetary policy and keeping stimulus in place, according to their statement released yesterday afternoon.
Following the meeting, the Fed said, “If progress continues broadly as expected, the Committee judges that a moderation in the pace of asset purchases may soon be warranted.” The central bank gave no timeline on when the tapering of asset purchases will begin.
Stocks linked to the economic recovery led the way up in early trading this morning as the major indices tried to take back some of September’s losses.
Factors such as value and quality are coming back into focus. “We think value is going to return to favor,” said CFRA’s Todd Rosenbluth. “We think we’re going to see a rotation again back towards value-oriented investments.” Our recommendation for today is a lower risk option for our readers who are looking to cast a wide net over value stocks.
