Happy Saturday, readers. After that, I've rounded up some of the very best stories from a busy week in markets, just for you. If this was forwarded to you, sign up here. Download Insider's app here. This conversation has been lightly edited for length and clarity. Phil Rosen: What's your current economic and market outlook? Brian Levitt: The economy is likely to go through what we think is a more mild recession, but we would expect markets to recover coincidentally with that but we expect it to be a more positive year for risk assets. I believe the market has bottomed for this cycle. But in the near term, the market may retrace some of that downside. BL: We're in the period where you may have some near-term downside risk, but the challenge for investors, if you're trying to time a 5-10% move down, you run the risk of missing the recovery. We should try to be positioned for the next couple years for a sustained recovery.The part of the market that trends to do best [in this environment] is higher yield corporate credit or bonds. And in a recovery you want to be exposed to the cyclical parts of the market, including sectors like financials, materials, and industrials. What's your year-end prediction for 2023? BL: Inflation will come down rapidly, and while there may be some near-term volatility, markets will finish the year positive. The S&P 500 will finish the year above 4,000.Read the 5 biggest takeaways from my conversation with Invesco's Brian Levitt.What do you think of Levitt's insights?
