It’s nearly impossible to predict with any accuracy exactly what the markets will do. After all, despite being a “weightier of all known information,” the markets still take a pretty random walk when it comes to returns and direction.

But gauging how the market will act isn’t always a futile proposition.

The secret to getting it right or at least getting close isn’t to look at the markets for clues but to focus on the economy. It turns out, the natural swing of the economy is a fairly good indicator of where to invest to find growth and a healthy dose of dividends.
