The 2012 Election is Very Consequential for Investors

posted 9/22/2011 in General

Market Commentary Highlights...
  • As September draws to a close, we are ending what has traditionally been the best four-quarter period for stocks during the four-year Presidential cycle.
  • Since World War II, the stock market has always posted a double-digit gain from the end of the third quarter of year two to the end of the third quarter of year three of the Presidential cycle. To retain that spotless track record the S&P 500 would need to post a gain of 3.5% in the next two weeks.
  • As we look out to next year's elections, the party that gains control will forge the decisions
    that will represent one of the biggest shifts in the federal budget policy since WWII with profound impacts for investors.
