- Title: Wall Street gains as investors shrug off downbeat earnings
- Date: 23rd October 2019
- Summary: NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES (OCTOBER 23, 2019) (REUTERS) (SOUNDBITE) (English) SATOVSKY ASSET MANAGEMENT CHIEF BEHAVIORAL OFFICER AND FOUNDER, JONATHAN M. SATOVSKY, SAYING: "I think, again, it goes back to the supply-demand equation, since most people have been fleeing equities and selling out of equities. When people are selling with such pessimism about the future, the opportunity for positive surprises, as you're saying, earnings surprises are much higher. I think global, the global equity markets are yielding 3% and the 10-year-Treasury yields 1.5%. So, I don't even need to get growth to get double the return of bonds if I am owning the global equity market. So, it seems like a no brainer if you're a long-term investor to be able to think about an ownership stake in businesses and just accept the fact that I have to live with volatility. No business is going to go in a straight line."
