Market. He built up cash going out of 2018. 2/3rds of it came from tech and a third from banks and he is waiting to deploy it. If something presents itself to them then he can go after it. The technical breakdown since December has been lower lows and then lower highs. This role-over could have more legs. The market has shifted from momentum, news driven to something that is driven off fundamentals. Now the playing field is getting much more level. A company with a good balance sheet might have a good rebound. He is looking for what s really cheap today.

Allocation in retirement. He likes 30% in cash as a buying reserve. He does not feel 70% in equities is right if you are retired and we are going into recession. Don't sell a good company that is down to put food on the table. Plan for 3 years worth of cash requirements in retirement.

What is your number one black swan worry? He is worried about a credit situation that does not end well. He is worried about losing triple 'B' companies. Credit problems could cause widespread selling. A lot of investors have flocked to higher yields but that yield may not be there in the future. A major credit event is the thing he is watching out for the most.

Market Outlook - He anticipated that the S&P 500 would go at least to 2,500. But if that level doesn't hold we will probably finish the job. And that is probably at the 2,000 level. The market is 10 years old and is old and tired. He doesn't think it is a huge set back as the classic things that spell catastrophe are not there. Hydro One (H-T) is getting to a level and a yield that can be sustained. But give it a couple of bucks, don't rush.

You said that the downside on the S&P 500 is closer to 2,000 - What is your view on the S&P 500 if the Fed does not raise interest rates and we have a resolution to the trade wars - Outside of short rates he doesn't see interest rates going up. The demand for money in NA is not there. But these factors are not the main ones. The problem in the market is not interest rates but valuations.
