Could the three words “Prime Childbearing age” foreshadow the next big up move in the stock market? We’re all familiar with the “Baby Boom” generation and the massive impact they’ve had on society. But, less noticed is their offspring, dubbed the “Echo Boom.” Nearly 80 million strong, “they will be become the next dominant generation of Americans,” according to CBS News.
Today, the number of women in “prime childbearing age” is surging and is at an all-time high. While the recent recession and lingering weak economic environment caused many Echo Boomers to postpone childbirth, this could change quickly if the economy picks up speed.
If this potential pent-up demand for babies actually materializes, we could see a spike in births that helps drive consumer spending, corporate profits, and the stock market higher. This potential demographic trend is one reason to be optimistic about America’s economic future.
