Investors continue to be buffeted by a variety of headwinds from 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.” He will also share with you two winning investment strategies from his book “The Seven Rules of Wall Street” that utilize international sector ETFs.
