Rising Rates and Stock Market Performance



March 8, 2021    |    LPL RESEARCH

The 10-year Treasury yield continues to climb higher, but remains low by historical standards. Still, the size
of the move since July 2020—and the more recent acceleration—has some market participants worried
about the potential impact on stock markets if rates continue to rise. Historically, the S&P 500 Index has
endured extended periods of rising rates well. If an improving growth outlook is part of what’s driving rates
higher, it should also support corporate profits, creating a positive fundamental backdrop for stocks.
