For 18 months, rising interest rates were aimed at cooling the U.S. economy and curbing inflation. The economy unexpectedly expanded at an annualized rate of 4.9% in the third quarter. This certainly defied gloomy economist predictions. This unexpected surge was propelled by robust consumer spending and a healthier labor market. This, in turn, creates a sense of financial security among consumers. Further, strong stock performance, high housing prices, and pandemic-related savings have contributed to this confidence.

However, economists remain uncertain about the sustainability of this momentum. The impact of the Fed’s interest rate hikes and increasing borrowing costs are becoming more pronounced. As a result, retail stocks are poised to expand. And, innovative business solutions will prove to be long-term winners in growth.

The FDA recently granted SeaStar Medical a breakthrough device designation. The Selective Cytopheretic device is for hepatorenal syndrome. It became a pivotal growth catalyst.

Further, this designation attracts attention from healthcare providers, insurers, and investors.

ICU has surged by nearly 500% over the past months, reflecting the sheer optimism surrounding its long-term prospects.
