The AAII New York City Chapter presents...

"Can Income Be Increased Without “Yielding” to Temptation and Will Equities Catch a Second Wind?"

    Discussed by:

    Sam Stovall
    Chief Equity Strategist, S&P Capital IQ

Sam Stovall will explain why he believes that the half-speed growth projection for the U.S. is threatened by the expected European recession and soft landing (at a minimum) in China. In this economic context, he will discuss whether earnings will rise 6% in 2012 as estimated and the market will catch a second wind. As an alternative he will consider whether fluctuating currencies, flagging economies and faltering profits will result in a decline in the S&P 500. In either case, he foresees interest rates remaining near zero through 2014. Thus, increasing returns in equities without major risk, whether through capital gains or dividend income, becomes a major issue for investors.

Attend This Meeting and Learn...
Whether the U.S. economy will pick up the pace
Whether the projected first-half slowdown in projected S&P 500 earnings is temporary or the new norm
