The AAII Pittsburgh Chapter presents...

"2012: A Pivotal Year ... or More of the Same?"

    Discussed by:

    Charles Smith
    Principal and Chief Investment Officer, Fort Pitt Capital Group

As this announcement goes to press, U.S. stocks have been down for a week and the international bond market has given Germany a smack in the face, while average consumers are demanding steep discounts for their holiday shopping. What will 2012 bring? Charlie Smith will review the hard data behind economic indicators—such as employment, housing inventory, industrial production, and the GDP—before taking the pulse of the domestic and international economies. He will also review several companies in the Fort Pitt Capital portfolio, revealing the metrics he used for initial purchase as well as those for maintaining the position.
