PR Newswire

NEW YORK, Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With President Obama recently re-elected, the U.S. economic expansion will soon enter its forty-second month in January when his second term begins.  Since 1900, the S&P 500 fell an average of 9.0% in year one of the four-year presidential cycle whenever the economy had been in expansion for 20 months or more.  Will history repeat or will the Fed's continuous priming of the monetary pump help avoid an economic recession and market decline?

S&P Capital IQ's senior equity investment strategists and an ETF analyst will examine these and other issues in a complimentary webinar on December 13, 2012.  Below are some questions they will be addressing in the fourth of a series of quarterly webinars.

  • Which equity sectors and styles represent attractive potential opportunities as we head into 2013?
  • Will equity income remain a key to international equity returns in 2013?
  • What portfolio asset allocation shifts can be made to better leverage the emerging market consumer?
  • What domestic equity ETFs are positioned favorably for 2013?
  • Should investors see recent expense ratio cuts from ETF providers  as a reason to shift their previous asset allocation decisions? 

WHAT:  Hosted by Sam Stovall, Chief Equity Strategist for S&P Capital IQ, this webinar will offer listeners actionable investment intelligence based on S&P Capital IQ's insights.

Questions will be taken from webinar participants after a brief presentation by each panelist.
