The AAII Connecticut Chapter presents...

"Investment Outlook in a Post-Election Environment"

    Discussed by:

    Sam Stovall
    Chief Investment Strategist, CFRA

Investors continue to be buffeted by a variety of headwinds from the economic recession in Europe and at least a soft landing in China, not to mention the half-speed recovery, upcoming presidential election and looming fiscal cliff here in the U.S. Despite these lingering concerns, the S&P 500 has risen 10% since early June. Do prices truly lead fundamentals, implying that the trajectory for global economic growth and corporate earnings will be improving in the coming months, or is this merely a “bull trap,” luring back the bulk of optimistic investors just before another crushing leg down?

Come hear Sam Stovall, S&P Capital IQ’s chief equity strategist, discuss headwinds and tailwinds in his “Investment Outlook in a Post-Election Environment” presentation. He will also share with you two winning investment strategies from his book “The Seven Rules of Wall Street” (McGraw-Hill, 2009) that utilize international sector exchange-traded funds.
