Our view has not changed from last month. Interest rates have stabilized and may even drop slightly toward the end of the year. As we begin to plan for future market movements, we are integrating some portfolios with additional dividend stocks, such as utilities and/or bonds, when we feel it is necessary.
We are keeping our eye on events that may influence the market, like the tariffs and interest rates, as well as the overall housing market. We do feel that eventually the market will soften. This is why it is important that portfolios are balanced. We will continue to closely monitor economic developments as well as global events that affect the market and provide you with regular updates.
