2 Stocks Running out of Steam

The risk of an economic downturn is rising due to high inflation, bank failures, and interest rate hikes.

Slowing global economic growth and inflationary pressures will remain significant concerns in the near term.

The U.S. economy grew slower in the fourth quarter than initially estimated, as consumer spending continued to trail off. Also, following the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank, which roiled the banking industry, Goldman Sachs cut its outlook for economic growth this year by 0.3% points to 1.2%.
