Although he noted that the U.S. economy has continued to strengthen this year, the negative impacts of tariffs and trade disruption are worth watching.

When building his portfolio, Bill told Oliver he picks his stocks name by name, looking for those that he thinks will perform better than expected because they stand to benefit from positive changes within their cost structure.
