The Outlook for Equity Markets

"If we hadn't put a man on the moon, there wouldn't be a Silicon Valley today."
-- John Sculley

North American equities have had quite a strong year, but it looks like that strength may be over. Earnings do not support rising prices. However, central bank interventions in the U.S., in Europe, and in Asia do. So what's next?

This Thursday, Chuck Gibson, my partner in Sea Lane Advisory, LLC, will join me on The Solari Report for our quarterly overview of the equity markets. We will be discussing:

  • What QE3 could mean to the equity markets and you
  • What the “fiscal cliff” could mean to the equity markets and you
  • The volatility that lies ahead

We will be using slides on the webinar software, so if you are listening live, you may want to follow along in your browser. Slides will be posted in links in the subscriber space on this blog post on Friday.

Check out my Solari Report interview with Chuck from this summer “The View From Silicon Valley”. It’s excellent background on the innovation and technology trends that have contributed to surprising strength in U.S. equity markets this year.

I will start with Money & Markets and Ask Catherine. Subscribers can post their questions here or live Thursday evening.
