Lack of market breadth won’t lead to markets reversing: Sevens Report Editor, Tom Essaye, Quoted in Barron’s

The Stock Market’s Breadth Is Improving. Why It Matters.

Though a lack of market breadth won’t lead to markets reversing, Sevens Report Research’s Tom Essaye told Barron’s, it is worth watching.

“The lack of breadth tells you something about the underlying business fundamentals in the economy,” Essaye says. “If everything were as healthy as the S&P 500 would have you believe, breadth would be better.”

He says the index’s performance may be overstating how well things are going for U.S. firms.

“It doesn’t mean the reality is bad—it’s just not as good as that single index is making you think it is,” Essaye says.
