The AAII Los Angeles Chapter presents...

"Trends and Outlook for the Global Economy and Investment Markets"

    Discussed by:

    David C. Wright
    Managing Director, Sierra Investment Management, Inc.; Co-Portfolio Manager, Sierra Mutual Funds

Dave will review the global economy and investment markets’ outlook for 2013. Particular focus will be given to the slow-motion train wreck going on in Europe and how that is likely to impact the U.S. economy and the “global debt bubble.” How long will it take for the bubble to deflate? What is the major trend in global equities—up or down? And how should you invest—stocks, bonds, U.S. or foreign?

"A Road Map for 2013 and Beyond"

    Discussed by:
    Tom Petruno
    Author and Columnist

If the Mayan calendar is wrong and we all wake up as usual on December 22, 2012, investors will face the task of deciding on a logical allocation for the new year. Will it be boring old stocks and bonds, or will it be some sexy new alternative investments? Maybe ancient Mayan artifacts? Tom Petruno will give his forecast presentation and a few recommendations. Tom’s presentation has become a January tradition for the Los Angeles chapter of AAII.
