Jim Welsh, author of the 'Macro Tides' and 'Weekly Technical Review' newsletters, says that the leading economic indicators that had everyone expecting a recession a year ago have fooled investors by softening recently. While many experts now are predicting a soft landing and the potential for no recession, Welsh says key indicators -- like the inverted yield curve -- often take a year or more to pan out and they will come to roost in the next three to six months, reinforcing the possibility of a 5 to 7 percent market pullback before the year ends. Also on the show, Jon Baranko, chief investment officer for fundamental investments at Allspring Global Investments, discusses how the strong start to 2023 impacted the firm's mid-year outlook, which is looking ahead and seeing broader participation and strong times for small-cap stocks ahead. In The NAVigator, it's Josh Duitz of the Aberdeen Global Infrastructure Income Fund, explains why the timing is good for infrastructure investing but notes that the public companies in the sector are a particularly good value right now. In the Market Call, Bernie Horn of the Polaris Global Value fund talks stocks.
