August 15, 2019, 2:25 pm - 3:00 pm

Recent strong corporate profit growth is now being confronted by huge financial requirements, late-cycle economies, trade uncertainty, China-growth risk, and geopolitical crises.

Outlook 2019-20: Is It Time to Buy or Bail?

August 15, 2019, 3:05 pm - 3:25 pm

Historical patterns leveraging the presidential cycle and seasonality point to the potential for double-digit gains for the S&P 500 during 2019, supported by the combination of EPS growth and inflationary expectations. What's more, despite the longevity of the current bull market, bulls don't die of old age. They die of fright and are most afraid of recession. Yet every Republican President since Teddy Roosevelt experienced a recession during his first term in office. Will history repeat, injecting renewed volatility, or will this bull market continue to charge ahead into the upcoming presidential election year? Sam Stovall will share CFRA's investment outlook for the market, and identify which sectors, sizes, and strategies are expected to outperform.

Economic and Investment Outlook

August 15, 2019, 4:20 pm - 4:40 pm

The Fed's pause witnesses its concern over growing economic weakness. As usual, the central bank has probably over-tightened monetary policy, leading to a recession this year. With no major financial crisis in the offing, however, the business downturn will likely be moderate with the US stock market falling not much below last December's low. A soft landing, on the other hand, would postpone the recession until 2020.
