Key points
 U.S. markets were roiled by so-called “unprecedented” political issues but bounced back
quickly. Investing based on political winds is not likely to be a successful strategy and
we urge focus on economic and earnings fundamentals.
 The U.S. economy is bouncing back from the weak first quarter while the labor market
continues to tighten. A June rate hike by the Federal Reserve remains on the table for
now.
 Global growth has picked up, but the recent slowdown and inversion of the yield curve
in China are causing some concerns.
