2020 Midyear Review & Outlook:

Benefiting from the “BTE (Better-Than-Expected) Bounce”

 

Thursday, July 9, 2020 at 11:00 am EDT | 8:00 am PDT

The equity markets have continued to work their way closer to breakeven on better-than-expected economic reports and continued investor optimism toward the gradual recovery of the global economy.  Businesses are slowly re-opening, travel plans are being reconsidered, and consumers proceed cautiously on discretionary purchases. Looking at S&P 500 and sector earnings and valuations, how will the current market situation stack up to history? Will consumer discretionary stocks such as restaurants, travel, and tourism-related industries – those most deeply impacted by the pandemic – recover?

Join CFRA’s Sam Stovall, Chief Investment Strategist, Todd Rosenbluth, Head of ETF and Mutual Fund Research, and Tuna Amobi, Senior Industry Analyst for a webinar discussion where we provide our mid-year U.S. economic and investment review and outlook for the second half of the year, with a deep-dive on the consumer discretionary sector that is most likely to keep investors reeling in the months ahead.

  • What’s driving Q2 earnings in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, and which sectors are poised to experience the biggest opportunities or risks.
