Year in Review; The Year Ahead

We expect the Australian sharemarket to lift around 5 per cent over 2022. Economic activity (and profits) won’t receive the same boost from fiscal and monetary stimulus as that delivered in 2021. A key uncertainty could be the outcome of the Federal election due in May.

The Big Issues of 2022

CommSec Chief Economist Craig James looks at the key issues likely to impact the Australian economy and financial markets over 2022.  From the outlook for inflation and the winding back of COVID stimulus measures, to migration and climate change, we cover the topics most likely to influence market sentiment. 

Key 2022 sharemarket themes

The sharemarket's performance over 2022 will be contingent on the risk appetite of investors who have had to construct investment theses in a period where risks grew amidst broader economic expansion initiatives. Supply chain disruptions & bottlenecks are likley to continue, causing downside risks to the industrials & consumer stocks.
