Inflation and interest rates are as low as they can go, Goldman Sachs strategist Abby Joseph Cohen told CNBC Wednesday.
"I believe we’ve seen the bottom of inflation, I believe we’ve seen the bottom of interest rates," Cohen said. "But that doesn’t mean we’re about to see a dramatic upward step anytime soon."
U.S. economic data is currently "a little bit messy," she said, but in the long term "we believe the U.S. economy is growing. We don’t see a recession anywhere on the horizon."
Focusing on long-term company fundamentals and economic news "always trumps the short-term noise" of current events, Cohen said.
"I’m not saying to be blind to short-term news, but not to over-react to it," she said.
For instance, she said, Japan "is looking to be an attractive opportunity for long-term equity investors," she said.
