South Coast Investment Advisors will be joined by City National Rochdale (Barron’s Top 40) to discuss our 2019 global economic outlook and highlight key risks and opportunities we see that may affect investors.
The fourth quarter proved to be one of the most challenging for stocks since 2008. The Santa Claus rally never materialized in December as stocks suffered one of their worst months in years. Despite gains over the final few trading days of 2018, stocks dropped and posted large declines in December, which pushed equities into negative territory for the year. The S&P 500 hit its lowest point of 2018 in a shortened trading day on Christmas Eve as the VIX Index spiked to its highest level since February.
As we move into 2019, economic data largely continues to reflect ongoing growth in the U.S. economy. However, broader macro concerns continue to exist and dominate market action including the pace of rate hikes by the Fed, ongoing trade issues with China, and a government shutdown. This webinar will address these concerns as well as plot the course for how South Coast will be positioning our clients in the year ahead.
