Sierra's CIO James St. Aubin on Money Life Podcast (Podcast Segment, 9/26/22)

Sierra's St. Aubin: Cash is king, especially for waiting out the storm

James St. Aubin, Chief Investment Officer for the Sierra Mutual Funds, believes that investors can win by not losing, and while holding cash won't keep pace with high inflation, he says being on the sidelines waiting for the market "to show some productive trends" is a sound strategy for current conditions. St. Aubin says that while the Federal Reserve's clear mission is to tame inflation even if it means triggering a recession, the stock market will continue to respond badly until it has a more clear direction. Also on the show, Mike Dowdall, chief investment officer at Alternative Fund Advisors, discusses the private credit market as an alternative to ordinary stocks and bonds in this market, David Botset of Schwab Asset Management discusses the firm's 11th annual study of ETF investors and their changing habits, and David Trainer of New Constructs puts a popular pandemic stock in "The Danger Zone," marking it as his latest "zombie stock," walking dead as it burns through cash with no sign of profits in sight.

Sierra’s Wright: Trouble seems likely, use stops to protect gains

David Wright, lead portfolio manager at Sierra, says that the market is currently so overvalued that it has a lot more downside room to run than upside. While Wright remains fully invested right now -- and isn't calling for a major reversal in the immediate future -- he cautioned that investors should be looking to protect gains from heightened market volatility ahead by using stop-loss orders on their biggest and most risky positions.
