Acumen Wealth Advisors is committed to providing information and resources in these evolving times to help you make decisions for you, your family, and your business. We have been collecting and analyzing data concerning the impact of COVID-19 and filtering it to you so you can make informed choices based on your specific situation.
Acumen’s portfolio analyst, Grant Allen, reviews the data daily to analyze trends regarding the virus and how it can affect the global economy as well as how we interact with our family, friends, and teammates. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a link to watch our video for an in-depth analysis. Some key points of our research include:
- The primary metric we are watching is the % of tests coming back “positive” vs. the “total” test results coming back every day.
- A spike in the number of daily cases should be expected with increased testing and a reopening of the global economy.
- The most important thing for us to currently monitor is:
- Are a larger percentage of those being tested, testing positive (especially in more populated states)?
- Is the severity of the cases continuing to go down?
- As long as we do not reach pre-lockdown levels of test positivity, and as long as the severity of cases continues to trend downward, we will be cautiously optimistic in our intermediate-term outlook.
