BMO Summer Market Outlook Call

TORONTO and CHICAGO, April 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Historically the North American economy witnesses a market-wide lull during the May to November period; since 1950, the S&P 500 has returned just over 2 percent per year between May-October and more than 8 percent in the November-April period.

However, before Canadian and American investors decide to "sell in May and go away," join investment experts from BMO Financial Group as they share their market outlook and investor strategies heading into the summer months.

Topics that will be discussed include:

  • Investor Strategies: "Sell in May and go away"- should investors adopt this adage come May 1st?
  • Sector/Investment Picks: Are there investing "safe havens" for the May-October period?
  • Global outlook: Can China's growth continue to fuel the world economy?  
  • Euro Update:  Will credit conditions continue to unsettle Canadian and U.S. investors?
  • Manufacturing Rebound: Will competition in the U.S. manufacturing industry cause a rebound or a slow down?
  • Commodities: Will the price of oil continue its climb, and how will instability in the Middle East drive capital market returns?
  • Presidential Politics: Will politics trump economics in the U.S.?
  • Debt: Is a policy of "financial repression" the answer for what ails the U.S.?
