An expert panel, which includes special guest interviewer Pimm Fox from Bloomberg Television’s Taking Stock with Pimm Fox, will explore and debate if the stock market has learned to engage in economist speak at NYSSA Market Forecast™: The Economist’s Bull Market on August 8, 2013.

Corporate earnings and profit margins are at record levels, interest rates are at record lows, and liquidity remains quite abundant. And despite its record-breaking performance, virtually all valuation models say stocks are not at excessive levels. On the other hand, US equity markets stand alone at the top of the global stock market while Europe is in recession, and emerging markets show signs of decelerating growth. Globalization and the interconnected nature of global economies and markets suggest risks remain elevated. Is the market’s message straightforward or just double-talk?

At the NYSSA Market Forecast™, experts will discuss issues such as the impact when the Fed engages in its exit strategy; how long corporate profits can continue to rise without top line (revenue) growth to match; whether Europe’s economic weakness will spread to other parts of the global economy; and more.

The panel of experts includes:

  •     Thomas J. Lee, CFA, Managing Director, JPMorgan
  •     Jonathan Mackay, Senior Fixed Income Strategist, Morgan Stanley
  •     Thomas M. McManus, Managing Director, Portfolio Manager/Analyst, Lazard Asset Management LLC (New York)
  •     Donald J. Rissmiller, Partner and Chief Economist, Strategas Research Partners, LLC

NYSSA Market Forecast™: The Economist’s Bull Market will be held on August 8, 2013 from 11:30 a.m.–1:45 p.m. at NYSSA Conference Center, 1540 Broadway, Suite 1010, New York, NY 10036.
