What do top legal issues have to do with the health of our economy? Short answer, Everything!
Legal matters are the barometer of our market and when we keep an eye on current cases and matters in the legal system, we can better gauge where segments of the market might be headed. For instance, medical class actions can provide us insight into pharmaceutical performance. A negative outcome will tank a stock, but what about the replacement product and the company that manufactures the replacement? What if the class action is lost or won? These portend major shifts and swings in the market that, if we pay attention, can reap significant rewards.
What about broader legal issues? Supreme Court rulings are a solid indicator of social preference, policy definition and broad segment trending. For trend management, we look here first to help us determine what is important to America. When we look at current legal issues and combine what we find with other major market impact silos, we get a pretty good view of the direction we are headed.
