Economic Update

The presentation will provide an in-depth analysis of trends in the economy and financial markets and will conclude with recommendations on investment strategy. Fritz will addresses these key issues:
  • The Goldilocks economy. It may be a hackneyed phrase but it’s an accurate description of the present situation. We’ll take you through the strong economic outlook, low inflation data.
  • The end of QE and the Fed’s inevitable first rate hike. What does it mean for bond yields? For stocks? For the economy?
  • Crude oil price war. What triggered it? Impact on the U.S. economy.
  • U.S. debt crisis. What are the numbers? What’s the solution?
  • Earnings and stocks. Earnings and the inflation outlook fundamentally drive stock prices. Are stocks overvalued? Understanding stock market arithmetic.
  • Investment strategy. Modern Portfolio Theory – is it dead? A look at the numbers. Don’t confuse MPT with buy-and-hold. Tactical asset allocation … how’s that working out for you.
