CFRA Investment Outlook:

Should Investors Keep Calm and Carry On?

Tuesday, April 7, 2020 at 11:00 am ET | 8:00 am PT

The dizzying volatility of the stock market, sparked by the fast-spreading coronavirus, made investors wary and brought consumer confidence into question. Turbulence was seen across most sectors, with an oil price war triggering steep drops in energy sector and a flight to quality. Is a prolonged bear market in store? Or is this simply a correction that many strategists knew would be inevitable?


On April 7, CFRA’s Sam Stovall, Chief Investment Strategist, Stewart Glickman, head of energy sector research, and Todd Rosenbluth, head of ETF and mutual fund research hosted a webinar discussion where we provided our U.S. economic and investment outlook and a breakdown of what investors need to know as they prepare in this uncertain time.


Attendees will learn --

  • Bear markets and recessions: How we think this will stack up with history
  • What’s driving earnings in the wake of recent events, and which sectors are poised to experience the biggest risks
  • Impact of oil price weakness on E&Ps, Midstream and the Integrated Oils
  • Energy firms, stock dividends and assessing balance sheet risk
  • The impact of high energy exposure to popular US equity and high yield fixed income ETFs


  • Sam Stovall, Chief Investment Strategist, CFRA
  • Stewart Glickman, Energy Sector Analyst, CFRA
  • Todd Rosenbluth, Head of ETF and Mutual Fund Research, CFRA


Moderated by Ken Leon, Director of Equity Research, CFRA
