Save the Date: Exencial’s Mid-year Teleconference
By Tim Courtney, Chief Investment Officer
The stock market has been active in 2018, but for the most part, has ended up about where it started the year. It opened strong following sweeping tax reform changes1, only to experience a sharp pullback and 10 percent correction in February2. Though consumer confidence numbers3 and corporate earnings growth4 continue to look positive, the return of volatility5 and mounting global trade tensions6 have some investors concerned. Many are asking if the market is taking a breather or fearing that the market may be headed lower.
To address your questions and concerns, we will be hosting our semiannual client teleconference on Tuesday, July 31 at 12:30 p.m. CST.
During the first 30 minutes of the call, our investment team will offer our market outlook for the remainder of the year, as well as discuss specific sectors and companies we’re keeping a close eye on. Afterward, the team will address questions submitted both before and during the teleconference.
