Scott Wren, senior global market strategist for the Wells Fargo Investment Institute, says that he is expecting economic contraction for the last half of the year and into 2024, but notes that the market looks ahead and tends to get optimistic about half way through a recession. He's not expecting the economic slowdown to bring a major market meltdown, but by the middle of the downturn he expects signals to turn to where opportunistic investors with multi-year time horizons will want to use the pullback as a chance to buy on the cheap. Also on the show, Greg McBride of discusses research showing that about one-in -four investors has moved money this year out of stocks and to fixed income or savings accounts, Chuck answers a listener's question about the process for becoming an accredited investor -- the kind who can invest in hedge funds, private-equity deals and equity crowdfunding -- and Francisco Bido, senior portfolio manager at F/m Acceleration talks stocks in the Market Call.
