Spring 2020 Investor Letter: The Bears Woke Up

 April 9 2020     David Templeton
The first quarter was an unprecedented one as the S&P 500 Index decline was the fastest 30%+ sell-off ever. The market ultimately fell 33.9% from February 19 to its low on March 23, just 23 trading days. This occurred on the back of a strong 2019 where the S&P 500 Index was up 31.5% for the year. A strong start was underway for 2020 with the S&P 500 Index up 5.1% through February 19. The COVID-19 virus pandemic puts individuals and investors in an environment that was unimaginable just a few weeks ago.
