Shawn Snyder gets the cool comparison of the week award for how he compared what the Federal Reserve is doing to COVID-19.

Shawn Snyder told CNBC, “I think that the Federal Reserve and its actions, along with the fiscal stimulus we saw out of Congress, has sort of acted like a vaccine for financial markets that has helped it develop antibodies against risk. If you look during the global financial crisis, after 2009, the S&P 500 never corrected by more than 10 percent.”

Shawn Snyder’s point is a good one. The Federal Reserve has limited any major downside risk among big tech companies and other large S&P 500 listed corporations.

I get that there’s a lot of worry out there from investors and consumers but bull markets climb walls of worry, especially bull markets with the Federal Reserve leading the charge.
