The stock market just had its worst week since October and the worst single day since last year’s market crash. Volatility has surged and investors are wondering if this is the start of a 2021 crash in stock prices.

First let’s look at why stocks are falling, then I’ll share reasons why there will not be a stock market crash but why it could feel that way for many investors. Then I’ll give you three strategies to invest your money in a market crash.

The big story lately causing stocks to fall is surging interest rates and the potential for inflation. If inflation jumps, it could cause the Fed to hike rates further and cut off easy money programs that have taken stocks into bubble territory.

Even without higher inflation though, interest rates can cause stocks to fall because it makes bonds and other yield investments more attractive. As interest rates increase, it decreases the present value of future cash flows and the fair value for stocks. It also makes the earnings yield on expensive sectors like tech less attractive.

But I do NOT think there will be a stock market crash in 2021 for three reasons. We’re expecting 5% economic growth this year and stocks rarely crash when the economy is growing. We also could see as much as $1.5 trillion in consumer spending propping up stock prices as early as this summer. Finally, borrowing is still super-cheap on low rates and we’re expecting at least another $2 trillion-plus in stimulus.

There are a few reasons why we could get a market crash or why even a 10% correction could feel like a stock crash. The market is forward-looking so towards the end of the year, it’s going to start pricing in the 2022 economy and environment…and that could cause stocks to fall. A lot of investors are all-in on high-beta names that move two- or three-times the market so if the market falls by 15% then those stocks could crash 30% or more and take your portfolio with it. There will also likely be a rotation out of growth stocks and into value or cyclicals. While the overall market might not crash, some growth or momentum stocks could crumble.

    I just added VNQ and O to my portfolio instead of bonds. Only 5 shares each. I'm a longterm investor.

    Is it still too early to be buy into them as you mentioned the yield will probably pull back?

    I would keep an eye on oil and natural gas prices, that will have more of an impact on creating inflation than any fed monetary policies. If the current USA administration continues it's planned war on fossil fuels, it will cause severe economic problems and hardship for most American's. I am hearing lots of talk of 100 dollar a barrel oil prices again, plus other commodities are getting very pricey. Another thing to consider is all the talk of automobiles going completely electric in 12 to 20 years, we will need massive spending on new power plants, transmission lines, etc. The current system is barely covering consumer demand now in many places, look at California and Texas for example.
